An Evening with Bob Goff: The Dream Big and Love Extravagantly Conference

Fri 10.04.19 @ 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM CDT / $39

  • This event has passed.

What goals and dreams have you been putting off out of fear, or the thought that it’s “too hard?” What self-perceptions have been holding you back from living out your full purpose? Chances are, Bob could talk you out of those thoughts and send you charging into your next adventure.

Bob Goff, New York Times best-selling author of Love Does and Everybody Always, has inspired millions to dream big and unlock their potential to love and be loved. Through his unique perspective and trademark storytelling, Bob will unpack some of his Dream Big Framework and what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction.

Join us for this powerful two-session conference with Bob Goff to learn from his example of a no-limits embrace of others that is as wild and infectious as it is extraordinarily ordinary.

An Evening with Bob Goff is sponsored by WE International, Inspiring Hope Ministries, and Upper House.
