  • 10:45 Shine Down: When Adversity Tests your Plan
    Nobody sets out planning to fail, but sometimes priorities (too many) or time (not enough) or self-discipline (lack of) get in our way. Preparing for those road bumps can make all the difference between an awesome victory and a total miss. We’ll discuss strategies to help you expect the unexpected and deal with adversity to help you keep on track. Hear from experts on how they have traversed obstacles and still “shone bright”.
