Session Description: In a world that pushes us to be the same, entrepreneurship tends to reward those who are willing to stand out. Jess shares her three secrets to success, based on the ability to "swim in the small pool" of leaders risking vulnerability and their individual quirks. Participants are asked to connect their values and personal "weirdness" in order to find opportunities to pursue their individual dreams.
