I am still riding high from my Big Shift Experience live event. It was a truly remarkable experience for me, for my team and for everyone there. There was so much there to experience, to learn and to soak in.
So before I forget everything I learned from being able to gather 450 glowing entrepreneurial change-makers all in one room, I am going to share with you 5 of my deepest learning from the biggest and arguably the best thing I have ever done.
