Quit Your Job and Follow your Dreams? Only Chicago date in 2019!


Quit Your Job and Follow your Dreams? Only Chicago date in 2019!

What happens when you quit your job to follow your dreams?

We've all thought about it. Throwing in the towel. Giving your boss the finger. Quitting to start a business, go traveling, work for a non-profit, or just laze on a beach.

But is it possible? Or just a pipe-dream?

Henry C. Blanchard is an Englishman who spent years moving numbers around excel spreadsheets, sending pointless emails, and staring out of the office window.

Until enough was enough.

He sold his possessions, took one bag, moved to Uganda and created an award-winning adventure travel business: The Uganda Marathon.

The Uganda Marathon now employs 12 people, has raised over $1million for good causes, and has been named by Red Bull as one of the 9 best marathons in the world.

Now he runs several "lifestyle businesses", and shows others how they too can escape from drudgery and into a more fulfilling career and life.

A start-up mentor and career coach, Henry leads the "Next Generation" programme in the UK - a mission to train 10,000 young people to start their own business. He has also taught at Universities - including Oxford University Business School - across Britain.

The talk gives all the key learning from his 4 years of creating a global charity movement, and studying and teaching people how to find fulfillment in work and life.

This is a three hour, high energy, funny, poignant and wonderful deep dive into what it means to find fulfillment in 2019.

You'll not only hear about people just like you who made a change to find fulfilment, but you can learn how they did it, the methods they used, what they wouldn't do again and exact steps you can take to begin the journey.

Learn the stories of ex-employees who took the plunge. What are they doing now? How did it work out? Can you do it too - and if so, how?? What about your mortgage? Family? Relationships? Career??

Most importantly - you'll leave knowing it can be done, feeling inspired and ready to show the world what you can do!

Henry is taking his mission on a worldwide speaking tour - this is the ONLY date in Chicago and one of only three in the USA. Don't miss out!
