Let’s put that in perspective, between the ages of 20 and 65 the average American will work about 260 days per year, 8 hours per day to equal about 93,600 hours over a lifetime. If you love what you do, you may not ever spend a day of your life “working.” So, why not turn a hobby into a career?
Franklin County is part of a new program of the Virginia Tobacco Revitalization Commission which will help pay off student loan debt for recent college graduates who reside in Franklin County (or another tobacco region community) and fill in-demand jobs.
Experience 2019 begins June 6 with a cocktail kickoff at Blue 5 (4:30-7 p.m.) and the full conference, The Future of Leadership, is June 7 (7 a.m.-5 p.m.) at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke.
The conference includes plenty of sessions that will help you develop as a leader, plus networking and outdoor events to help you get even more engaged in the community. A ticket — just $65 — gets you into everything listed.
The same skills that make you a good leader can help you take control of your health.
