Mostly what she's focusing on is how you can stand out, how you can enter a conversation and have people remember you, how you can do a presentation and have people remember you and retain what you told them. This is the key to success because when you are top of mind, people want to work with you, people want to engage with you. How do you stay top of mind? How do you grab someone's attention?

Sometimes I still do, but the more I talk to more interesting smart people, successful high achievers and all those freaking unbelievable experts that are here, the more I get that getting attention is not necessarily a bad thing. You want to channel it to do good in the world. You want to channel it to a place where it influences your success and the success of the people that are around you and that are working with you. We’re going to learn more about that. Do you want to learn how to be more magnetizing and how to influence people for good and be a force for good?
