He has a passion for celebrating the diversity of humanity and a core mission to bring the human race together. For many years, Kody has taught that there is an art to creating bonds, trust and assurance. When you take the time to build relationships, he says, the typical aspects of marketing become simplified and genuine. Relationships create an emotional one-on-one connection and a memorable experience. And that is where the real-life riches are made, internally and externally.
Kody shares his personal development philosophy in his first book Promptings: Your Inner Guide to Making a Difference, where he uses stories to illustrate the significance of acting on your promptings to reach out in kindness. Promptings guide you to your genius within, he explains, helping you make the difference only you can make in the world.
