The Importance of a Promise

Integrity and character are often defined by how someone treats their promises. Too often in life we say “I’ll get to it” or “tomorrow.” This attitude can begin to define a culture. Alex Sheen talks about the importance of a promise and its impact on humanity. Through emotionally powerful stories, he convincingly discusses how our character and integrity is determined by how we treat our commitments. Alex shares interesting, practical and actionable advice on how to become a person of your word. As a nonprofit leader, his message focuses on making promises to better yourself, your family and your community.
