Optimism is one of my favorite words in the English language. The reason? It's because I fight for it every day and I have been able to sustain mine in a year that has been quite the roller-coaster ride. Through it all, I feel excited, open to the possibilities and I'm convinced that anything is possible.
I hope you find this speech, given in October 2013 at EntreSLAM, as motivation to keep going and to remain optimistic in your life as well.
