Presentation Topics


“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion; for your passion will lead you directly to your purpose.” Wesley Hamilton explains the difference between the two and how they work hand in hand together. Passion and purpose can help you become more self-aware and give you the ability to chase your goals.
