You may be surprised to know that Shriners count among their ranks presidents, professional golfers, country music stars, astronauts and actors. We think it's just as important to be a leader in your personal life, to be a role model, and to simply be a friend.

Develop relationships that benefit your business and help you reach your career goals. You will find that you've become a mentor yourself, passing the lessons of leadership along to the next generation.
