2013 Session

The Moment and Method for Reinvention

Best-selling author, “Good Morning America” contributor and entrepreneur Tory Johnson is no stranger to major life changes— having shifted from employee to entrepreneur after a painful firing. With a lifetime of struggling with her weight, Tory felt ashamed of how she looked but could never find the will to change. When a network executive warned her that if she didn’t lose weight her television career could be in jeopardy, Tory experienced something profound: A Shift. She knew she didn’t just want to change, she needed to change. Now, after a second major shift–losing more than 60 pounds in a year– Tory is on a mission to help others change their thinking and achieve a better life. This session isn’t about weight loss – it is designed for anyone struggling to make a big life change, be it professional or personal. Together, these exceptional women will share their personal stories of shifting, and offer valuable lessons and inspiration for taking charge and changing your mindset once and for all. Attendees will:

  • Identify “their defining moment” for reinvention
  • Create a plan to make the shift
  • Understand and make a list of things to sacrifice along the road to shift
  • Learn strategies for self-discipline
  • Create a healthier and happier life
