Speaker #1 Abstract:  Self-actualization and Pivoting/Reinvention to a New Venture


Remember that time you really wanted to go after something but somehow you decided it was not the smart thing, the right thing, or the right time? In this conversation we will revisit and reassess how to determine your most audacious goals, how to chase them down, slice them up and devour them. We will explore the concept of self-actualization: truly becoming everything we want, and why/how it can be incorporated into the life you have now.
