What I Know For Sure After Attending the Act Like A Success Conference #ALAS2016

Sojourner Marable Grimmett
The Act Like A Success Conference in Atlanta took place on May 13-15, 2016. This year's conference was designed to not only motivate and inspire attendees, but to equip us to take steps to get to the next level of success. Steve Harvey put together a dynamic success team who helped attendees create a vision for our lives, set big goals, moving past fear, gain practical strategies to advance our careers, and knowledge on building financial wealth.

    I was fortunate to attend the conference as a member of the Social Media Team. Being a part of the team, allowed me the opportunity to share insights from phenomenal speakers and information gathered from break-out sessions.

      What I Know For Sure! 

      Here's what I learned and know for sure after attending the Act Like A Success Conference: 
      1. It's important to identify your gift. Your gift is what you do the best with the least amount of effort. 
      2. Mistakes happen. Learn from them and keep moving forward. 
      3. Don't give up on your dreams. 
      4. Don't be lazy. Keep going. 
      5. Surround yourself with people who have your back.
