Secrets To Having The Big Life: On Your Own Terms

Mar 11, 2017

5:00pm – 5:30pm CT

You are re-writing the rules of career and ambition. You want a badass career of twists and turns and adventure. You want a partner who honors your ambition and friends who support you. But how do you find your way when there’s no clear-cut path? Or when you’re spinning your wheels and feel like you’re on a treadwheel to nowhere? The road ahead is even rockier than you thought and your dreams, which should be closer than ever, can feel hopefully out of reach. How do you cultivate confidence, meet challenges head on, and turn obstacles into advantages?

It’s hard to do big things—and that’s why we do them. That is the first step towards getting The Big Life. Ann Shoket, longtime magazine editor and author of THE BIG LIFE, has spent her career mentoring and championing young people and understands what it takes to find this new paradigm of happiness and success. She shows you how to tap into your ambition, honor your dreams, and create your own version of The Big Life.
