Making Your Dreams Come True: Taking That First Step

Share Post

Join us for a free workshop at the New York Festivals, Thursday, May 18th from 2:30 – 4:00 PM.

Dreaming is easy. Making dreams real is another thing entirely. For altogether too many of us, we lose our way before we even begin. “Taking That First Step: Having the Courage to Chase Down a Dream” is about getting started and making the dream happen.
