Trust Tour: Trust is the basis for everything See the progress Todd Welch is making bringing trust to the world. Much of our success is based on how much we trust or don’t trust ourselves. When I realized just how important trust was in my life, I decided there was nothing better I could do then to focus on it, hence the launch of the tour. Every day at 1:20 in the afternoon I will post a story, a thought, an interview or a poll on trust. I know that sounds a little crazy but since we are on the Trust Tour, lets start our relationship with honesty, I am a little bit “different”. This commitment means I will need to document 1000 trust experiences before the end of the tour. The Trust Tour ends August 22nd 2012 at 1:20 PM (the date and time of my 50th birthday). Along the way I hope to inspire individuals, corporations, governments, teachers and students to raise the bar on trust and revolution the way we live our lives. To build trust you have to take a risk and I am willing to take that risk myself. I am asking you to take a small risk and join me so that together we might make a difference.
