Villaverde and Stern present their book Living Brave, compelling stories of how one can make a difference.
Several of the "voices" from the book, including Cindy Dach, co-owner of Changing Hands Bookstore, share their stories of passion and purpose—the constant motivators in living braver lives and answering poignant questions of struggles, successes, and fears in being an entrepreneurial woman. Be inspired by the panel as they explore the concept that women do not necessarily seek to take over the world as much as they strive to take hold of who they are and what they can offer.
