VM Summit 16 Session: The Keys to Living an Inspired and Balanced Life
What is your session about? And what do you hope attendees will get out of it?
The session draws from my book, I Got Hit By A Taxi But You Look Run Over, which is about transformational Change leading to happiness, joy and achieving your goals. Attendees will learn how to live a life of balance while achieving their goals.
What is the biggest misconception people have about the nonprofit sector?
There are two big misconceptions: 1.) That only nice people work in the nonprofit sector, meaning there are no difficult personalities, and 2.) That no one gets paid what they are worth.
What are you most looking forward to about VM Summit 16?
I am very much looking forward to presenting to the group.
