Have you ever thought about starting your own business?
Are you stuck in your current line of work and looking to make a change?
Did you inevitably download TikTok this year and become more aware of the opportunities that life has to offer?
If you said yes to even one of these questions, then you'll want to mark your calendars for March 1st at 7pm EST.

Represented by Shine Talent Group, these Canadian influencers have captured the attention and hearts of many across the country and around the globe, all while taking the LEAP to follow their dreams!
