WLC 2018: Channeling Your Grit For Greatness

Recorded On: 06/25/2018

If you could do anything during your lifetime, what would it be? What actions are you taking today to get you there? Many of us imagine a list of goals we want to achieve, but sometimes they don’t get put into motion. Jess says there are two things that stand between us and our lifetime bucket list: the courage to try and the belief that we can. In this inspiring keynote, Jess Ekstrom challenges you to build your bucket list with a personal plan and timeline for making it happen. She captivates the audience by incorporating personal stories from when she was young and auditioned for the show All That, to when she went to college and started a million-dollar business from her dorm room. Jess explains in detail how to move forward with our passions, even when we have moments of uncertainty or are afraid to fail. An honest, humorous and inspiring tale of taking a leap, going for it and learning that failures are not opposite of success, they’re part of success!
