We all have stories to tell (WordCamp Montclair 2019)

Everyone has difficulties in their lives. Roadblocks that can prevent dreams from happening. The trick is to break those barriers and to climb over them to reach your goals. I have a story, and you have a story. In this session, you will hear about some significant hurdles that one person had to go through and see living proof that goals can be achieved. Passion and strength are within us all. Listen to my story and see how I incorporate it into my photography, my business and my life in general. Learn ways that cope with the struggle and defy the odds. Then think about your stories and how you can do the same. What’s your story?
