The final perspective on resilience offered by speaker Lisa Senters-McDermott, focused on perseverance in the face of adversity.
Now the CEO and founder of Jet Senters Aviation, Senters-McDermott worked hard for years, ignoring the naysayers in her life, to build her career as an entrepreneur.
“I know not to ask permission. I trust my gut. I believe dreams can be prophetic,” she said. “I know the brain conspires to help us. And I know that life is precious and a whole lot of fun.”
Reflecting on her talk and the meaning of resilience after the event, Senters-McDermott said that she hopes attendees left her talk with the message that they should all follow their own unique passions rather than trying to fit into a prescribed societal mold.
“Resilience is what separates the quitters from those that are successful,” Senters-McDermott said.
