From the Conference

  • Your Identity Matters
  • Pertinent Questions to ask yourself:
     1. Who am I?
     2. What is the purpose for my existence?
     What am I called out to do?
  • Discover your passion early enough - You must have a clear purpose, vision and direction for there is nothing more painful as being successful at what is not yours!
  • See failure as a temporary setback, a process in the journey of learning. Dust up quickly and get back in motion.
