“DARE TO DREAM”: TFCU KICKS OF TALK SERIES TOMORROW WITH FIL-AM FOOD NETWORK CHAMP AND YOUTH CEO OF A KICKSTARTER-FUNDED COMPANY
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, November 11, 2016 – “Sometimes you don’t know when you’re taking the first step through a door until you’re already inside.” ― Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
Achieving one’s dreams doesn’t necessarily mean one has to leave everything and go somewhere else to find the elusive key to opening the treasure of success. It could mean just looking at where you are right now differently… and that could make all the difference.
Come tomorrow — November 12, this Saturday, from 12pm to 4pm PST at the Kalayaan Hall of the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco — TFCU will kick off its series of informative “TFCU Talks”, beginning on the topic of entrepreneurship.
The speakers guaranteed to provide life-changing perspectives on dreams and success are:
