Here’s a 70-second video excerpt from a speech I gave at the Quest Conference last November in Ontario, Canada. In this video, I explain what it means to open the door of opportunity for a young person.

What if there are two open doors? Two completely different, life changing doors, and you know that once you go through one there is no turning back. What do you do? How do you choose between two good opportunities in life? Which career do you take?

This is fantastic, can’t wait to share this with our staff and teachers!

Thanks D. Lally – Life has infinite doors for us to pursue – and it is up to you choose…

I attended the Building Bridges conference today and just have to say Thank-You! I heard you speak a few years ago at a conference for the West Metro Ed. Group in the Twin Cities and was reminded today of how powerful and rewarding it can be when students choose to push their “turbo” buttons! Your work with our students today was inspiring and encouraging, I look forward to following your blog and utilizing these great resources as a school counselor!
