This talk was from January 2015 Fulfillament. in Traverse City, MI
Fulfillament is a storytelling event where five local business community members take the stage and tell how they found fulfillment in their journey- thier inside story. Each storyteller issues a challenge for the audience to do something to find fulfillment in their own lives. Audience members individually accept a challenge and make connections with others to take action. This event awards a $500 grant to an audience member with a good idea that needs some help to get it moving.
