To live a bountiful life, we must always remember that we are constantly sowing seeds today for tomorrow. Everything that we do, say, or think is a seed planted that will have an effect both now, when we experience everything, and will also bear fruit in the future when the repercussions of our actions play out.

It’s hard to believe another year has passed as we slide head first into October. Four years ago, Next Level Trainings completed its first Discovery Training. We envisioned a world full of love and contribution for Columbus and beyond. We were committed to taking what we learned and sharing it with our community to give back.
Dream Team 17, the 17th Vision and Impact Program (VIP) class of Next Level Trainings, developed a large scale community service project that we hoped would reach people and positively impact the lives of those who live and work around us. We witnessed the awesome work that past VIP classes have done and our aim was to dig deeper and aim higher than we had ever done before.
