Did speaking at TEDxTraverseCity have an impact on your career?

TEDxTraverseCity was an extraordinary experience and gave me visibility at an exceptionally run TEDx event.

Anything else you would like for us to be aware of as we plan future events?

I am developing a one woman show “Mackay to Manhattan”, which will incorporate message, music and motivation.
