It’s the question we often find ourselves asking when we realize, almost by accident, that we’ve veered off our intended path despite our best intentions. And we suddenly wake up one morning feeling lost and adrift, not quite remembering how we got on this quicksand island. In this presentation, Kelsey shares raw wisdom and gritty perspective to help you deal with the truths and turning points that are awaiting you just around the corner.
You’ve heard it before: Going outside our comfort zone is what cues epic stuff to happen in our lives and careers. But oftentimes, we let the risk of failure outweigh the probability of success, simply because we can’t shake the heavy fears that are piggybacking on our dreams and goals. The reality is: We’re never ready. And while we’re constantly planning, psyching ourselves up and assuming that the worst will happen, someone else is trying—and getting a huge head start on us. Kelsey shares some off-the-cuff candor and unfiltered entrepreneurial experiences to show you how to go from considering all the ‘what-ifs’ to all the ‘how-tos’, so you can create a game plan for where you want to go (and get there in record time).
Most of what we know for sure can be captured on the back of an envelope. The issue with “back-of-the-envelope” management is that we spend time in comfort, in the things we know, repeating what we know works…until it doesn’t.
