Description

Come hear Anna Akbari, Author of Startup Your Life Hustle and Hack Your Way to Happiness at Stern on February 23rd from 5:30-6:30pm (including a Q&A). Light snacks will be served.

Living your life like a startup is about maximizing flexibility and measuring ongoing results, not avoiding failure or reaching one particular end goal. It’s about embracing defeat, analyzing it, and failing up. Using the Startup Your Life principles, you actively create the life you want, regardless of the stage you’re in or the hurdles you face. It’s not about “happiness someday,” but now. This approach is not just a bunch of philosophical fluff— rather, it offers realistic, actionable strategies that allow you to implement and live each of the lessons from day one. Personal fulfillment is created, not inherited or earned. And outside forces feel a lot less overwhelming when tackled systematically, with a little guidance.

In this presentation, Anna Akbari, PhD, demonstrates how to reach personal fulfillment in all areas of life by using the same strategies that power Silicon Valley’s greatest startups. It teaches people to live their lives like a startup to enhance well-being and success, regardless of their profession or stage in life. This methodology nurtures innovation, increases employee retention rates, and clears out the mental cobwebs. Let her help you game the system as you hustle and hack your way to happiness.
