No really

Big theater in the round stage at Orange County Convention Center
being onstage can feel powerful, it can also feel vulnerable


The unexplainable joy from becoming our own true, authentic self is the stuff not covered in most leadership books.

Human nature is survival of the fittest. Dog eat dog. Yada yada.

True power is in not needing it.
