Defining Moments of Courage is a collection of inspirational stories from an emerging talent of entrepreneurs to parents to high corporate executives who share what steps they took to keep hope in their success alive. Dean Kosage co-founded Defining Moments Publishing Company, which then inspired the creation of this Amazon #1 Best Selling book; Defining Moments of Courage, where Dean Kosage was also a published co-author. In Dean’s story which can be found as the final chapter of the book, he shows all of us that despite growing up outside the matrix or the norm, that no matter where we come from or what our circumstances are, we can all succeed when willing to pursue our dreams. The desire behind the creation of this book, Dean Kosage wanted to provide a platform for the amazing amount of talented people to have their voice and story heard. People that are doing it NOW, and to “no longer have to quote Dead people” meaning the great authors that we have all studied for years and years. This book helps us see a world of possibilities available to us all and these short stories of courage provide solutions you may need on your journey.

“Defining Moments of Courage proves that with slight edge steps you create any life you want – but not all at once. You must understand that it is the little steps, compounded over time, that do make all the difference. You must learn that the things you do every single day – the things that don’t look dramatic or don’t look like they matter – do matter. Ultimately, one courageous step forward can make ALL the difference.“ - Jeff Olson, Author of The Slight Edge

The theme of the conference this year is… Bringing BIG ideas to life, which is shaped by the dynamically changing economic landscape where winners today may be winners in the future and new startup entrants with unique offerings can become success stories almost overnight. We believe Bringing BIG ideas to life, is also being driven by the start up revolution, where entrepreneurs through a greater sense of ownership and global impact are increasingly shaping the startup world and the fortunes of startup companies. At this years conference, we will explore ways in which the current startup leaders are adapting to the rapidly changing entrepreneur landscape, the opportunities for new emerging players, which business models are best positioned for today’s rapidly evolving marketplace, and how you adapt to the new age of business, where you have greater control.
