The morning was made possible with the generous support of our guests and sponsors: City National Bank, The Mall at Green Hills and Hilton Nashville. The Influencers shared from their own personal and professional lives, imparting a few take-aways from the morning.

• Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

• You are exactly where you need to be. Don't compare yourself to others, because they're just where they need to be.

• Surround yourself with people who are humble, hungry, and smart—in that order.

• Follow your instincts.

• Rising tides raise all boats.

• Nashville has a unique community. Instead of focusing on what's next, it's important to preserve the character of our city that already exists.
