Startup Your Life: Hustle and Hack Your Way to Happiness
Living your life like a startup is about maximizing flexibility and measuring ongoing results, not avoiding failure or reaching one particular end goal. It’s about embracing defeat, analyzing it, and failing up. Using the Startup Your Life principles, you actively create the life you want, regardless of the stage you’re in or the hurdles you face. It’s not about “happiness someday”, but now. This approach is not just a bunch of philosophical fluff— rather, it offers realistic, actionable strategies that allow you to implement and live each of the lessons from day one. Personal fulfillment is created, not inherited or earned. And outside forces feel a lot less overwhelming when tackled systematically, with a little guidance.
Join AWNY for this presentation where Anna Akbari, PhD demonstrates how to reach personal fulfillment in all areas of life by using the same strategies that power Silicon Valley’s greatest startups. Let her help you game the system as you hustle and hack your way to happiness.
