Event Schedule and Class Descriptions

8:00-8:30 am  Registration/Breakfast/Mingle with Vendors

8:30-9:30 am  Welcome and Keynote:  Jerrid Sebesta -- formerly of Kare 11   #blameJerrid 
Jerrid believes the path to "livin' the dream" is all in how you position yourself. In this program, he asks three questions. These questions are designed to challenge audiences to take an introspective look at their own work, life and money. Yes, this talk touches on finances, but it is not a speech about the stock market, compound interest or mutual funds. Instead, Jerrid gives an inspiring message based on his own personal journey leaving the TV business to live with more purpose and impact.
