What a great week! Special thanks to all of our speakers. Enjoy their key quotes from their message. Better yet — watch or listen to them! (OR…watch or listen any time you want with one of our passes.)
We’ve got a full lineup this week as well. The Day 29 video releases at 8 PM EST. on Monday, March 22.
