What you'll learn in this career training:

We all know someone who is miserable at their desk job, constantly regretting not chasing the dreams they believe they can no longer pursue.

Author Sara Bliss, a journalist who pivoted careers herself (art history to writing), talks with make-up guru Bobbi Brown, designer Suysel dePedro Cunningham, chef Angie Mar, and media personality Oneika Raymond on how they took charge of their dreams and made them a reality—and how you can too!

A book signing follows the event.
