About the speaker
Lisa J. Weiss, founder of I of the Storm Coaching & Consulting, is a speaker, inspired living coach, and creator of the CONNECT™ Program for Men. Her super power is detecting how the words we use connect us to our choices, and external expression of SELF.
Successful career men hire her to reconnect with their loved ones. She teaches them how to engage and express their vulnerability, and reframe their thinking process. This enables, and empowers, them to create deeply meaningful connections with those in their lives.
Lisa believes being lost is an essential part of our growth and evolution. Many events have provided opportunities for her to trust the experience of lost to be an essential catalyst to ignite creativity in the next unfolding of her life.

About the theme:
When you’re wading through the unknown, it can feel scary and risky. You float around wondering if you’re going in the right direction and want to know what’s next.
Being lost is a collaboration between possibility and uncertainty. It’s an excuse to get one step closer to a more fulfilling life. What you were comfortable with may not be there anymore, but you will have the remarkable opportunity to reconnect with yourself and embrace discovery.
In these “in-between” moments, turn to your inner beacon and pay close attention to where it’s guiding you. Your beacon is the light that blazes within you, a signal made up of your values, dreams, and priorities.
The essayist Anaïs Nin put it best when she wrote: “The unknown was my compass. The unknown was my encyclopedia. The unnamed was my science and progress.”
Shine your light. Ask for help and let go of the idea that you have to make a perfect choice. You may feel lost, but you are not alone.
