Speaking at EO Alchemy 2012 in Seattle
November 26, 2012 • Speaking
On October 27th I was invited to give a keynote presentation at the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) west coast regional event called EO Alchemy 2012. The event took place in Seattle and the topic of my keynote was “The Art of Balancing Life”.
The vision for the event as stated on their website is “We realize that every human being carries within them the inherent ability to create; the hallmark of every Entrepreneur throughout history. But this ability is sometimes hidden beneath layers of self-doubt, skepticism, and apathy. To break through these obstacles we sometimes need to see how others “did it,” how they transformed an idea into reality—a successful reality. EO Alchemy is the premier resource for the knowledge and connections to make your dreams a reality.”
Here are some photos from that wonderful 3-day event.
