Do you find yourself overwhelmed sometimes? Does it seem life is throwing one obstacle after another into your path? Are you ever tempted to just give up? Do you find it helpful to hear about people who have overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to realize their dreams?
If so, you’ll love this inspiring program by Jin Robertson, a Korean factory girl who immigrated to America as a housemaid at age 22 with little English and $100 to her name. Through determination, imagination, and sheer will, she became a U.S. Army major and graduated from Harvard with a Ph.D. She is now Korea’s most popular motivational speaker and the book chronicling her amazing story has sold more than 400,000 copies. As a single mother, she raised a daughter, Jasmin, who was selected as a Presidential Scholar and who also graduated from Harvard and became a U.S. Army officer.
Prepare yourself for a moving presentation that proves anyone can create the life they’ve always wanted–if they are willing to work hard, place themselves in positions of opportunity, and take responsibility for producing quality results that cause others to want to work with you and for you.
Discover for yourself why every one of Jin’s audiences rise to their feet in a rousing standing ovation because they reconnect with the part of themselves that knows they have the power to do more with their lives –if they choose to act on their own behalf. You’ll understand why Jack Canfield (best-selling author of Chicken Soup series), Pulitzer-Prize winner Ron Powers (Mark Twain), and Paul Shin (U.S. Senator from Washington State) have all recommended Jin’s work.
