Presented to you LIVE Weekly on Mondays at 9:00 am EST.
Mind Body Business Virtual Summit Background
We are in the midst of highly unfamiliar territory. Instead of adding to the hysteria, we are choosing to provide our tribe with thoughtful, insightful, slightly provocative content that instills hope, offers ideation and creation, serves as a catalyst for expansion and furthers to connect us as a community. We've gathered thought leaders, ripple makers, catalysts for change - to share their insights and expertise in a variety of topics centered around the pillars of Mind, Body, & Business, such as:
MIND: Holistic, Education, Medical
BODY: Spiritual, Fitness, Meditation
BUSINESS: Finance and Economics, Entrepreneurial, Social Media and Digital Marketing
ALL designed to engage you and help you forge your way through this transformative period. True leadership is much more than authority and recognition from the outside world. Leadership is about developing people and helping others reach their full potential. It’s about equipping others with the right tools and strategies to not only maximize the success of an organization or a country, but also the lives of individuals. It’s about breaking down barriers and leading others through the uncertainty of the future.
Join us every Monday LIVE at 9:00 am EST for the Mind Body Business Thought Leadership Virtual Summit!

Summit Topic: "Expanding Your Tool Kit" - tools that will help you slow down, connect with yourself and navigate these uncertain times.
Joe Hawley played Offensive Line in the NFL for 8 seasons with both the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2017, after realizing his heart and body just weren't in it anymore, he decided to walk away. The decision to leave the sport he spent his entire life playing left him feeling a wide array of emotions, everything from loneliness to excitement, and without really knowing what to do next, he decided to explore his freedom for the first time. That's when he decided to give everything he owned away to charity, bought a van and hit the road on a trip across the country that completely changed his life. He traveled for almost two years exploring places all over the country; amazing national parks, beautiful scenic roads and connecting with incredible like-minded people, but the most profound thing that happened to him during the entire experience - he found himself. Now, he’s on a journey to inspire others to find themselves, through his writing, speaking and coaching. He is currently working on developing an online community and group coaching program for former athletes. He is also in the process of writing a book that will be released later this year.
