YOG Talks #5 – The Art Of Making An Impact
Who would have thought we'd be talking about a fifth YOG Talks this year already?! Well, you'd better believe it, and it's going to be a belter!
Anybody who has been to a YOG Talks would know that there is always an underlying theme of contribution and service. It is one of the YOG principles, and is imperative to practice in order to live a balanced, fulfilling life. To live a YOG's life, is to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Making a large scale impact, can lead to leaving a meaningful legacy.
YOG Talks #5 aims to speak directly into this philosophy. The two panel discussion guest speakers not only have incredibly interesting, inspiring lives, they are dedicated to making a difference in the World, and are so far doing a mighty fine job!
