You can RSVP to the event on Facebook and be sure to keep an eye out for details about joining the live Q&A session following the talks.
Tuesday Talk: Embrace your raw, strange magic.
The way we're taught to live has got to change, says author Casey Gerald. Too often, we hide parts of ourselves in order to fit in, win praise, be accepted. But at what cost? In this inspiring talk, Gerald shares the personal sacrifices he made to attain success in the upper echelons of American society -- and shows why it's time for us to have the courage to live in the raw, strange magic of ourselves. This week, challenge yourself to consider the unique strengths and value that you bring to all your endeavors -- according to this talk, it may benefit both your happiness and success. Casey Gerald is a writer who in his memoir, "There Will Be No Miracles Here," reimagines what it means to truly live and succeed in our society. Watch the talk here.
