Event Details

Imagine discovering you were in a body-bag for two days after waking up from a combat encounter in Vietnam...  

Then being told, at best, you might have only 20 years left to live.  What would you do?

Urban Miyares discusses his life and business successes after returning from Vietnam. An award-winning entrepreneur with more than 23 businesses to his credit in 44 years, Urban talks about how he converted pain and physical & psychological challenges into positive directions for him in business.

Learning Points

  1. To demonstrate how personal challenges can be converted to positive actions.
  2. To show how physical and psychological pain can be minimized or mitigated.
  3. To show goals and dreams can still become a reality, regardless of personal challenges and barriers.
  4. To create a self-analysis of one's personality and how to change, taking more control of one's life and future.
