But how do you make real, lasting change when it’s just yourself? Especially if you’re starting from nothing and don’t have the resources, staff or visibility to support you?
My friend Alexis Jones has insight on this. Because she’s been there. Twice. Alexis has been changing the world since college, and it all started with only 6 members. Today she’s giving talks at Nike, Harvard and the UN and has over 1.2M I Am That Girl members in 24 countries.The only difference between a superhero and a villain is who you choose to serve. Do you serve yourself or do you serve others? @MissAlexisJones Click To Tweet
What’s even more instructive though, is that she’s the first to admit how long the road was, and how she never expected to be where she is now. Which is helping to revolutionize education about sexual assault prevention through her new organization, ProtectHer.
If you’ve ever wanted to change the world, but that goal feels too big to fathom, here’s your chance to learn from a woman who’s been in the trenches, and is actively doing the work today.
You’ll hear from Alexis about:
- Why “the world of inspiration” actually prevented her from taking action.
- The 10-second trick that helps her make hard choices in even the trickiest situations.
- Her “Indiana Jones Method” to failure.
- Why her desire to change the world started for selfish reasons.
- And her unusual approach to sexual assault prevention—that’s working!
