Its an event packed with inspiration, action planning, and insight. “Personal growth, I think, is what it’s all about,” said organizer Dr. Peter Kehoe. “I think it’s one of those things where you have to show up to really see what it’s all about. Last year was really a great event. What they really get you to do is to think and to really reconsider the things you’re doing in life. Whether you’re a parent, (or) an up-and-coming minimum wage worker that wants to do better, you want to really lean-in to these people. I think this is a unique opportunity for this community.” Friday’s event begins at 8:00 am until 12:00 pm at the Orpheum Theatre.
