The Crooked Path to Success

We all know about choosing the road less traveled and taking the fast track. But the path to success is not always the fastest, the straightest or the newest. In fact, sometimes finding success involves a zigzag through life that only when looking back even resembles a path at all. And that is ok.

Join zigzagger and startup veteran Margaret Dawson, who has found business success and personal satisfaction through nontraditional routes. She’ll share what she has found to be the important criteria when making decisions, how to evaluate risk, and how to trust your gut and your logic at the same time, and, importantly, how to decide who to listen to (and who to ignore) when making work and life decisions
