2019 Keynote Speaker

Adrienne Bulinski

Perseverance with Grit

The difference between living your best life and dreading getting out of bed in the morning boils down to a handful of daily choices. Truth: when life is rainbows and cupcakes it is easy to persevere. Realty: when life hands you your tush on a silver platter the word “perseverance” quickly seems like a four letter word that makes you cringe. “Perseverance With Grit” teaches what it takes to build a fierce self-confidence while also giving you the tools to achieve your dreams and goals. Learn how to use adversity as stepping stones not set backs.  Gain the tools to stay focused, be effective leaders, overcome adversity, and live the life envisioned. Get ready to laugh, cry and dream bigger than you did this morning!
