At the World Domination Summit, I was called on stage at the end of the conference and told that I was going to receive some help accomplishing what I hoped for my life in 2020. The World Domination Summit is an annual gathering of 3,000 nonconformists from around the world who carve remarkable lives for themselves in our conventional world.
