You’re told that if you want success, find your passion and commit to it. For life. Except this isn’t how it happens for most of us. Terri Trespicio knows that you might not actually know what your “passion” is. And she’s got a better way to help you to make a life that matters to you.
On Saturday, January 29, Terri, a nationally in-demand speaker, brand advisor, stand-up comic, and author of “Unfollow Your Passion: How to Create A Life That Matters to You,” will offer you a completely fresh take on life, work, and meaning. She’ll show you how (and why) to skewer platitudes and flip society, culture, and the #patriarchy the bird.
Part writing workshop, part book launch party, and part author Q&A, UNFOLLOW YOUR PASSION: An Evening with Author Terri Trespicio will introduce you the tools you need (and the permission you crave) to dispense with the BS, toss the old advice, and lay claim to the life that’s been yours the whole time—so that you can begin to live it on your terms.
