“There is no passion to be found in playing small- in settling for a life that is less than on you a capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

THE VOLTA STORY

VOLTA was started on the concept that TODAY MATTERS. I focused on TODAY MATTERS because today holds the key your success, the key to living your dreams, the key to your well-being.  Often when we talk about yesterday, we exaggerate the experiences or outcome, whether they are good or bad.  Focusing on tomorrow is dangerous also. Too much focus on tomorrow will take energy away from today.  We often overestimate the possibility for tomorrow, setting us up for failure and disappointment.  When we don’t put enough stock into TODAY, we risk not the action to move toward our dreams.

VOLTA is focused on connecting, inspiring, equipping and propelling individuals and teams to take action TODAY to live a life of Significance.
