Chicago Planner Conference 2020, Samantha Kuhr SpeakerAt the Chicago Planner Conference, I had the privilege of speaking at a workshop titled “Plan a Life You Love Through Gratitude”. We delved into a thought-provoking question: What if you only had one month to live?

I shared my personal journey, recounting how I confronted this very question and the profound impact it had on my life. Through my story, I share the power of gratitude and the transformative effect it can have on your outlook. My approach of embracing gratitude and paying it forward resonated deeply with the audience, inspiring them to cultivate a mindset of appreciation and purpose in their own lives.
