WE’RE UNDER THE BIG TOP IN 2017
Ringling Bros. has staged its final performance, but the circus lives on inside all of us. Once the circus was a place we went to see THEM: the freaks, the magicians, the clowns and daredevils. But over time, we realized and embraced the fact that THEM were really US.
At this year’s SouthNEXT, come celebrate the circus in our modern lives: embracing our differences, harnessing uniqueness in leadership, lifting the veil between the material and the spiritual, and maximizing our physical potential.
