Presentation Description

Today marks a very special day for me. Five years ago I made the very scary decision to leave corporate America. I would love to say that I’ve never looked back but that would be a lie. The first year was AWFUL, the second year was very hard, but finally in the third year I started to see light in the tunnel. I love this quote as it pretty much sums it up for me - “When it is dark enough – you can see the stars.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
