Stefan Swanepoel Gives Awesome Speech At Keller Williams Family Reunion!

This morning we had the opportunity to hear Stefan Swanepoel speak at Keller Williams Family Reunion about his new visionary book Surviving Your Serengeti. What an awesome experience! I wish I could have recorded the whole thing but here's a short clip to give you an idea. In his speech he describes the character traits of seven different animals and how they relate to humans.

Stefan has also developed a quiz to determine what type we would be! We took the test and Betty is a crocidile (enterprising, determined, industrious, and confident) and John is a lion (strategic, planning, coordinating, and adaptable).

Read more about the book and the Active Rain Challenge.
