Nichole Lynel, motivational speaker and the creator of Boss Chick 101 shared a humorous story on talking to her Uber driver about the power of influence while on her way to the event.

“We were just talking to our Uber driver about the…(laughing) power of influence.. and.. I… he shared something that was so good,” Lynel said. “ Don’t sleep on the uber driver because he was totally like, don’t just be influenced by the big things be influenced by the little things.”

Former NBA player and NBA Analyst Baron Davis also stopped by to talk with EUR on the importance of the power of influence.

“It’s extremely important you know… I think that we’ve all been blessed to be in a situation and have a lot of trials and tribulations in our lives,” Davis said.  As much criticism as we face as athletes sometimes or celebrities, I think it’s important also to…let people inside and love who we are and what we want because it’s always deeper levels to anything that the media surface.”
