Important Message Regarding The COVID-19 Pandemic

I am writing this post in solidarity with my colleagues, industry peers and clients, to let you know I am with you. As a result of recent events with the COVID-19 pandemic, most of my bookings have been canceled for the next eight weeks with more cancelations and postponements anticipated to come. To all my clients and business associates, I will be contacting you about how we will move forward with this together and look to reschedule when it is over.

This will be an interesting time for all of us, as we weather this storm. It will be a struggle, however this will also be a time for a reset, reflection, re-evaluation, recalibration, re-imagining, refocus, rebalance not only on a business tip, but creatively, personally and spiritually. I wish you all well to your families, friends and yourself. Let’s all look forward to a big ol’ dance party when this blows over. Peace and love.

Our topics and presenters include:

How to Prosecute Thanos with Gregory Pang

Ambulance Dispatch: The most important thing is to know where you are with Monica Davis

Do You Feel Like Your Life Is Out of Your Control? You’re Right! with Bryan Saunders
