Leo Bottary, What Anyone Can Do

Host Taryn Winter Brill sits down with author Leo Bottary to discuss his book, What Anyone Can Do: How Surrounding Yourself with the Right People Will Drive Change, Opportunity, and Personal Growth. In this book, Bottary looks at all the people we surround ourselves and how those people are instrumental in helping us along the way. Bottary says that, “The more positive people we can surround ourselves with and the more that we tap into that incredible power that’s all around us, the more effective we’re going to be as individuals.” But, success is more than just surrounding ourselves with the right people. He states, “You have to be clear about what it is that you want” and what needs to happen in order to make things possible. One thing that’s changing in the age of social media, Bottary argues, is that people aren’t paying attention to the number of followers or friends; instead, they’re looking to consciously engage people with deeper conversations, in smaller numbers.
