What do we love most about Tony, his authenticity and passion to create a life of purpose. A lot of us say we want purpose, but then get caught up in the rat-race or money. His sheer commitment to achieving this goal is inspiring.
We’re going to sit down with Tony and dig in to how it’s going, where his journey has taken him so far and what is in front of him. Let’s make this an interactive conversation, bring your questions and be an active part of creating this piece of the conference.
