May 29, 2019
Hosted by Colleen Biggs
Even though the weather was warm and humid in the ATL, the venue, attendees and panelists were on fire! The panelists encouraged all of us in the room as they shared experiences that reminded us how important it is to surround yourself with the right community of support, LIVE for your PURPOSE first and foremost, and remember humor as you enjoy the journey to be “Mo’ Betta”! Listen in as we interview Afsaneh Abree, Aly Chally, and Anita Henderson as they share their take-away’s that inspired them from the 3 power packed hours. Then stick with us as we bring on Marnie Schneider, Founder of the Keep on Playing Foundation, Author and Granddaughter to Leonard Tose, previous owner of the NFL Philadelphia Eagles and the founder of the Ronald McDonald House, as she shares her story of how growing up in the NFL taught Marnie the importance of giving back, something she has carried forward into her career in the nonprofit sector.
