The Dream Project is an upcoming business symposium that will feature wildly successful entrepreneurs offering the right tools to those who have a dream of living their calling in a major way.

Teneshia Jackson Warner, CEO of the New York-based multicultural communications agency, Egami Consulting Group, founded The Dream Project in 2013, after she discovered her passion of assisting those who aspire to follow in her entrepreneurial footsteps.

“I’ve been walking the entrepreneur journey for about 10 years,” Warner told rolling out. “I’ve found that there are individuals who have a passion to start a small business, or small business owners who are looking for additional resources to scale their business. [Egami Consulting] ended up becoming resourceful to other small businesses in our network. It because a passion of mine to help others live their dream. That’s what inspired me to create The Dream Project symposium.”

Now in its fourth year, the event has expanded, and it’s going to be better than ever. Taking place on April 21-22 at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, the all-day symposium will introduce new seminars and include speeches from the most popular go-getters in the business world, like NBA legend and world-renown entrepreneur Magic Johnson.

Here are the top 3 ways that attending The Dream Project can help you leave that boring 9 to 5 and “follow your dreams.”

Successful entrepreneurs will provide insight on their own experiences.

Joining Johnson on the stage as speakers will be Robbie Montgomery of OWN’s “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” Rent the Runway co-founder Jennifer Fleiss, and a long list of others who will share personal stories of successes and failures in business with attendees.

“Joel Osteen’s associate pastor, John Gray will be talking about how you can bring faith-based principals into business,” Warner added. “Christine Caine a pastor within the Hillsong network, will also be joining us.”

You can attend seminars that suit your specific situation.

The Dream Project has added more how-to seminars that will appeal to aspiring bosses of various backgrounds, including mothers, the youth, and more.

“We have one ‘how to leverage social and digital for your business’ session,” Warner explained. “We have another about millennial CEOs and how they approach business differently, and a series of boss CEO divas sharing their tips to success. We’re adding a session of mommy-preneurs, and the list goes on.

You will learn how to use creativity to excel in the business world.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “Unleash the creator within.” So, Warner is not only ready to spill all her secrets on how to hone your creativity and apply it to your business, but she is researching additional tools that she will incorporate into the event.

“I’m reading The Creator’s Code by Amy Wilkinson,” Warner revealed. “It’s amazing. She studied 200 entrepreneurs that had generated $100 billion in revenue or more, and looked for a commonality in the way they approached business and creating. She came up with principals that she calls ‘the creator’s code.’ So I’m going to pull from a lot of that information for The Dream Project.”
