Southwestern Alumni – You are invited to an EXCLUSIVE SOUTHWESTERN ALUMNI ONLY EVENT “COFFEE TALK WITH DAN.” Dan Moore will be talking about his NEW book, 'Control, Influence, Accept (For Now).' And, we will be having an ASK DAN ANYTHING (his experiences, insights, challenges you are facing) session. You will not want to miss this EXCLUSIVE ZOOM MEETING with Dan Moore and SW Alumni!
In Control, Influence, Accept (for now), Dan Moore simply explains principles and strategies to prepare for and cope with a future no one can predict.
Regardless of your present reality: What will your future be like…in ten years? Twenty years? Thirty years? No one can completely predict that but what we do know is that nothing stays the same. Technology we rely on every day didn’t exist 20 years ago; careers that exist today may be extinct in a few years. With so much uncertainty, what can we do? Control, Influence, Accept (for now) is a guidebook to help us sort out and thrive through the twists and turns on life’s road. C-I-A(fn) is tremendously simple but also tremendously effective. Each chapter of this book ends with exercises that can help you begin to internalize key traits for coping with a future no one can predict.
During his 49-year tenure with Southwestern Family of Companies, Dan Moore trained more than 100,000 people how to sell, how to lead and how to get on the path to achieving their goals in life. He’s been involved in the creation and growth of businesses and influenced many future entrepreneurs. Dan has researched and honed his C-I-A(fn) expertise through his many years mentoring students at Southwestern Advantage and working alongside executives across Southwestern Family of Companies.
