That guide turned into The Sever Step COMEBACK Plan and it took off like wildfire.
The mission of the COMEBACK STRONG Summit is an extension of that objective - to provide inspiration along with the tools, rules, and strategies to get beyond this disruption and get back into action in the pursuit of your biggest dreams, goals, and ambitions.
