Where Do You Go When Success is Not Enough Presented by Madeleine MacRae & Thomas MacDonald

 

Achieving success is the goal of every professional in our industry—whether in the workroom, showroom, or job site. We sacrifice so much to achieve it, but what happens when it’s not all it was cracked up to be? What do you do when you’ve worked so hard and have accomplished so much, but there’s still a restlessness, an emptiness, an ache inside?

 

Join Madeleine, a best-selling author and industry expert, and her business partner Thomas MacDonald, a nine-time founder and business catalyst, to discover the simple key to satisfaction beyond the horizon of mere success—registration required.
