Goal reaching:

a to b not a to z

Alexa has achieved feats many people never thought possible. However, her success didn't come without hard work, dedication, and failure. In her talk, she explains why she believes intimidation is one of the biggest barriers when it comes to achieving goals. Instead of approaching goal setting as A to Z, Alexa explains how the first step to getting to Z is getting from A to B. Knowing where to start and which actions to take are the first and most critical steps to succeeding, kicking butt, and making one's dreams a reality.
