Van Lai-DuMone is the founder of WorksmART Advantage, a Creative Strategist and LEAP Coach, and a Tedx and Keynote Speaker.

On this episode, Van shares the journey her family took from fleeing South Vietnam with one suitcase and no money in 1975 to San Diego and Camp Pendleton. How did an act of curiosity and another act of kindness, from actress Tippi Hedren enable so many of the refugees to attend a local beauty school? Van discusses WorksmART Advantage, Lego Serious Play, her non-traditional route to her Tedx Talk, the Angels 14 Leaderships calls, and much more.

Finally, Van celebrates the legacy of her father, who passed away prior to the recording of this episode.
