You’re getting a lot of things right, but you know you could be

doing more to reflect and set goals that inch you toward living and shining as your authentic self

You have probably told yourself that you don't have enough time, you don't like writing, you don't like bragging, or the past is the past and why bother looking back?

To live YOUR life? To be your true, authentic self? To create a life that makes you happy, and not someone else?
Truly joyful, happy people are those who live wholehearted, authentic lives. They don’t wear masks, don’t pretend to be someone else, don’t let the opinions of others command them. 
 
They are FREE to be the person they were made to be. Free to live the authentic life. Free to love themselves for who they are. 
 
And yet so often, we feel driven and ruled by what OTHER people want. We want to be authentic…

...but do you know how?
"I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I've become. If I had, I'd have done it a lot earlier."
Oprah Winfrey

But what if there were a solution?

To be able to let your TRUE self be seen? Without fear. Without shame. Without the need to apologize?

Ask yourself…

  • Do I want to live an authentic life ?

  • Do I want to be free from the opinions of others?

  • Do I always feel like I’m wearing a mask when I’m around others?

  • Would my life be better if I was living an authentic, joyful, free life?

Are you ready to join the conversation?

Is this only for educators?    

No! This virtual summit has been created to meet both personal and professional needs! All of the content will apply to a wide variety of careers, and particularly be powerful for personal reflection and engagement.

 

Is this free?    

The speakers are experts in their field and are dedicated to making sure you get the most of this experience. To have the webinar hosted on GoToWebinar and commit to having an ASL interpreter to ensure more global accessibility, to make sure our speakers devote time to planning, and providing you after-webinar resources, an access code to the webinar is $39. A portion of the proceeds also benefit The Trevor Project and The Bail Project.

For an access code, you may have as many people as you'd like in the room with you! Also, there are discounts available for non-profit organizations and teachers. Codes will be posted on a variety of social media platforms. 

 

If the webinar is cost-prohibitive,  please reach out to brandon@brandonbarile.com and inquire about a discount code. 

You are welcome to engage in the weeklong discussion on social media without registering for the webinar. Also, if you're in a position to sponsor a scholarship to the webinar for a hopeful participant, please contact brandon@brandonbarile.com.

That's quite the discount! Why the price drop?

As a collaborative effort, we recognize the financial impact of COVID-19 on educators, institutions of higher education and K-12 education, organizations, as well as individuals with limited income during these unprecedented times. Aligning to our core value of equity and social justice, access to this webinar is important to us, and we created a price structure that covers only the necessary costs while being affordable and accessible to as many participants as possible.

When is this whole thing happening?    

The virtual live workshop is August 3, 2020 at 4pm EST. However, we'll kick off the previous week with Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook discussions, and follow with resources you can use after the event!

 

Will all the speakers get my email address?    

No! You will not be subscribed to any mailing list of the panelists.

 

Are the presentations live?    

Yes! Speakers are not only providing their ideas live during the webinar, but are also available via chat. After a Q&A period, the speakers will also be available in a breakout room for other questions for 30 minutes.

Are you still accepting speakers?    

All of our speakers for this summit have been hand-picked. However, we're open to additional affiliates or potential speakers for our next virtual webinar. If you're interested in details or being considered for our next webinar, email the organizer, brandon@brandonbarile.com

 

Are the videos captioned or transcribed?

We will be using GoToWebinar and there will be an ASL interpreter available. While the live webinar will not be captioned, the video replay, available to participants, will be.

 

I still have questions!    

No problem! Shoot an email over to the webinar's coordinator, brandon@brandonbarile.com and we'll get back to you within 2 business days.
