The rapid and unprecedented transitions taking place in our lives, our industry, our state and nation can often leave us overwhelmed, struggling just to keep up. Worst of all, these changes seem to be happening to us, rather than being dictated by us. The result is that we can often feel beaten down and apathetic, our work becomes meaningless, and our lives less full than they are meant to be. There has got to be more for ourselves, for our families, for our places of business, and for the vulnerable individuals entrusted to our care. But how do we reach it? Join Dr. Joel Nunez as he reveals universal, timeless and proven principles for living our richest lives right now.
