Beginner’s Pluck: How to Build a Life of Purpose and Impact


We often dismiss a newcomer’s success by calling it beginner’s luck. But what if their beginner’s mindset is the very thing that positioned them to succeed? What a beginner may lack in experience, track record, know-how, and connections, they make up in nerve, curiosity, spirit, courage, and a willingness to acknowledge they don’t have it all figured out. Bestselling author and entrepreneur Liz Bohannon calls this “Beginner’s Pluck.” In this dynamic, high-energy keynote, she’ll debunk many of the commonly held beliefs about business and personal success, explaining why a beginner’s mindset is the key to finding creative solutions to our biggest challenges. Get ready to embrace your Inner Beginner, dream small, choose curiosity over criticism, shake yourself out of analysis paralysis, and focus on creating your passion rather than waiting for it to find you.

Liz Bohannon is founder and CEO of Sseko Designs, a socially conscious fashion brand that works to educate and empower women across the globe.
