Have you asked yourself, “I am ‘smart,’ why am I not more successful ?” Our speaker, an accomplished MIT grad, faced a stunning setback that led him on a ten-year journey of introspection and research that led to key insights. He discovered 16 factors that disabled (or enabled) the success of ‘smart’ individuals. During his talk, he’ll share those factors with you. He will provide game-changing insights as to why this happens and how each of you can become more successful – whether you currently consider yourself successful or not.

As a benefit to our alumni, we have arranged for you to take his insightful assessment, ‘Is Your Intelligence Enabling or Disabling Your Success?’($198 value) for FREE using the following discount code at checkout: Wharton-Chicago-Sep2023 - click to take the online assessment.

You will get a report identifying your enabling and disabling factors. And, if you attend the webinar, you’ll see the composite results of all the alumni in our club so you can compare your enabling/disabling factors with that of fellow alumni.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights to greater success.
