When faced with challenges, giving up and making excuses is easy. But with the right mindset, anything is possible. That’s the philosophy behind No Excuses, No Limits, a mantra by hip-hop performer Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli. He knows that an open mind allows you to find solutions to any situation, no matter how vulnerable or uncertain you may feel. This thinking spawns determination to see possibilities instead of challenges and breeds creativity to overcome obstacles. Come and experience the contagious energy of No Excuses, No Limits, DJ’d by DJ Handlez and learn how to embrace challenges and turn them into opportunities for growth and success. Join us Monday afternoon for a workshop hosted by Lazylegz.
