Understanding & Owning Your Power, Presented by Yvette McGee Brown, Oct 22, 7:30-9:00am at Mount Carmel Siegel Center – 6001 E Broad St.

“Understanding and owning your power” Too many of us place limits on ourselves, consciously or unconsciously. We think “I can’t do that” or “I don’t have the right connections to make this happen.” The reality is we all have the power to create the future we want. It’s hard; it requires focus, networking, discipline and risk. Change and growth can be incremental, all building to the biggest opportunity. The reality is this, talent always rises and there are no shortcuts to success. Success comes to those who are willing to put themselves out there, to dare to be different; to take a risk. Like a duck to water – calm on the surface but pedaling furiously underneath.
