A one day live event about work, life and bucking the status quo. Come reclaim your creative freedom and access a higher level of badass-dom.
James Victore, TOTALLY LIVE. SPEAKING THE TRUTH.
“I wanted to make a symposium but all I could come up with was a revolution.”
Take This Job & Love It ’13 is a one day symposium where James breaks down the philosophies he’s followed throughout his career and teaches you how to use these methods to maximize your own life and work.
TTJALI ’13 is the convergence of design and creative arts, personal development and social impact. It’s a place to reignite the passion in both your business and your life—to dig deep into to the fire that made you want to be a creator and fan those flames. Building on last year’s event, TTJALI ’13 goes deeper into identifying the methods you need to promote creative courage and work through the hard questions on your path to personal greatness.
This is a revolution. Designers, writers, artists, small-business owners, educators, anyone who wants to learn how to light up your career, harness your power and make a positive difference in the world—this is for you!
