In this talk social entrepreneur, Liz Ngonzi, shares her journey to finding greater meaning in life. She takes you from the conundrum of success, lots of resume accomplishments from an Ivy League school, to Fortune 100 jobs, to a top notch client roster, to honors and awards, but feeling deeply something big was missing. It took three months living in a blue tent at an Ashram to find what it was. Share the journey, discover what she came to know and see how she hopes it will inspire you to find your own path to balance and joy.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
