What if you were able to accomplish your dreams today? What is truly holding you back?

Today the latest generation to start our careers are facing more challenges. We are suddenly entering an all-you-can-eat buffet and we're told to choose one item. That's our life. One career. Maybe we can travel, but we are told that is a limited window. We are told we can start a family, but that is a limited window too. And FOMO affects us while we're working and watching our friends travel, and it affects us while we're travelling and watching our friends start their career. How does one have it all?

What if we could choose to quit life whenever? What if we could one day choose to have a career and the next pursue our hobbies and see if we can make an income from them?

In 2014, Kim Orlesky did exactly that. Her university finance degree was no longer being used as she was working in a high-end corporate sales career. In that moment, she realized her life was not what she dreamed it to be. She sold her house, quit her job and alone, with a backpack, she travelled the world. She explored 4 different continents, writing every single day. When she finally returned, which a wealth of experience she decided again to change her life. This time, she would become a published author, international speaker and executive life coach, helping people master work-life balance and mindfulness.

Her 50-minute talk will leave you feeling inspired and ready to choose your passions and your life before all else. This is your story, your life, and you are allowed to change your mind as many times as you see fit.

This talk will be recorded for the TEDxYYC committee. You may be required to sign a release waiver.

Ticket prices include one free drink. Please stay and mingle after. Let's talk about creating new opportunities in our lives.

Knox St Bar opens at 4pm - And they serve delicious food and amazing pre-show cocktails! We encourage you to come early for dinner & drinks, and stay for the good times.
