The Editors:


When this year’s Star of the North Meeting keynote speaker Jeannette Walls took the stage in the Roy Wilkins Auditorium at RiverCentre, she appeared almost tiny, certainly alone, and very far away. Then she started speaking, and people started leaning forward in their seats. By the time they left the presentation, her audience    was grounded in a message that permeated the entire meeting that awaited them: Don’t erect obstacles between you and what you’re looking for, even (or especially) if you’re not sure what that is. For this year’s   Star-goers, the education and networking opportunities made creating connections a hands-on, heads-up, yet very personal experience.
