Lori Saitz – CEO of Zen Rabbit
When you are in a state of gratitude, your brain is releasing
feel good chemicals that actually make you kinder, more focused
and more productive.
Lori Saitz is the CEO of Zen Rabbit, an award-winning writer, speaker, and broadcaster, and a nationally recognized expert in using gratitude and meditation to manifest goals faster. The most difficult thing she’s ever done is leave a 22-year marriage, that experience inspired her transformation. She’s now on a mission to guide Gen-Xers to a place of unprecedented passion, clarity, peace, and to rediscover their purpose so they can get back to a place of liking themselves and their lives again.
Treger Strasberg – TV Host and Founder of Humble Design
Only 1% of our families go back into homelessness!
Treger Strasberg founded the nonprofit Humble Design in 2009. What started out as a small nonprofit in Detroit offering design services, and furnishings to those exiting homelessness, grew and expanded to five cities across the US, and led to a television show, “Welcome Home”, which earned two Daytime Emmy nominations running on the CW Network in 2018-2019 and still popular on demand on the BYU TV app. Humble Design is a nonprofit that helps families transitioning out of homeless shelters by providing furnishings and design services. The organization turns empty houses into clean, dignified and welcoming homes — a very simple idea that can change a family’s future. The organization serves families and veterans leaving shelters. Humble Design has served over 2,000 families nationally through its chapters in Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Seattle and San Diego.
