Speaking to 400 at East Wake High

If you were at my East Wake High speech today, this video is a special message to you. There was one really important thing I didn’t have time to share with you during today’s speech, which I’ve covered here. Plus: The video is really “bad”… 😉

If you weren’t there, here’s the 411: I spoke to 400 high school students at East Wake High in Wendell, NC today. I talked about the importance of not focusing on what you think “you’re supposed to do,” but, rather, on what you could do. The audience was awesome, and I truly enjoyed speaking to them! Thanks East Wake High!
