There are a lot of experiences that can build us up or break us down. Realizing your self in relation to the world, who you are and who you are not, who you think you need to be for others versus who you need to be for yourself, is the achievement of self-acceptance, self-validation, and self-awareness. Balancing that achievement with the truth that other’s perception of you holds no sway on your potential, your story, and your truth, can change your reality for your benefit.

Frequently Ask Questions for This Event
1. Why only 35 people?
A: As this is our first virtual event, we want to make sure we can host and manage a reasonably sized online event before adding more and more registrants. Thirty-five has been the typical average number of attendees following our previous in-person events, so it seemed like a realistic number to start with. We intend to open the registration for future online events to more folks in the future!
2. Will a recording of this be available to YNPN Portlanders?
A: It is our intention to record this event and offer it online to our members. However, as YNPN Portland respects the individual intellectual rights of our speakers, the final say and availability of a recording will be up to the speaker themselves.
3. Is YNPN Portland planning other events like this in the future?
A: Yes, we are. While this will be our first foray into the virtual meeting and online programming sector, we hope it will not be our last. We have a few ideas that were based on results from our 2020 Membership Survey. and always looking for more ideas.
