What is Work in Progress?

This is where to bring your passion and your ideas to change the world, to discover your purpose and your superpowers, to connect with others and grow stronger together, to step outside your comfort zone and see what you are really capable of, to give yourself the edge as an entrepreneurial employee, or to carve your own path as the founder of your own venture.
