Title: “Lifecycle of the Dream”

Description: A transformative journey that will unravel the profound parallels between the life-cycle of an oak tree and the trajectory of our dreams. The stages of Survival, Stability, Success, and Significance that dreams undergo will be compared to the journey from seed to towering oak. Insightful anecdotes and practical wisdom will help navigate the dream’s evolution, with encouragement not to falter in the face of challenges but to persistently nurture aspirations until they reach the pinnacle of significance. This will be a rallying call to embrace the growth process and cultivate dreams that will stand the test of time.

TAPPSCON24 will be held June 5-7, 2024, at the BASE at Extraco Center in Waco.
