Dances with Dependency: Out of Poverty Through Self-Reliance, with Calvin Helin
Solutions are offered to the poverty inherent in indigenous cultures, developing nations, and inner city populations, which have become disempowered by long-term overreliance on mainstream political, social, and economic programs developed for their benefit. Calvin Helin explains that these welfare systems easily divest recipients of the resources and mind-sets necessary to become self-sufficient. Solutions range from instituting policy reform and enhancing cultural development to reframing dependency mind-sets. The outcome is an enhanced ability to partner with mainstream initiatives and help create wealth and opportunity.

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.

Upon completion of the webinar, attendees who complete the follow-up survey will receive a completion certificate that can be used to bolster their professional portfolio or LinkedIn profile, a $10 Amazon gift card to purchase books, and a chance to win one of our $25 Uber Eats gift cards.

Speakers

Calvin Helin
Bestselling Author, Dances with Dependency: Out of Poverty Through Self-Reliance
Calvin Helen is a bestselling multi-award winning author, international speaker, entrepreneur, lawyer, and activist for self-reliance. It's an unlikely success story, from someone with an impoverished childhood, growing up in a remote Native American village. The son of a hereditary chief, Helin’s first book, Dances with Dependency: Out of Poverty through Self-Reliance, was based on his own experiences, and written to help eradicate the kind of poverty he faced as a child. A seven-time bestseller, Helin's landmark guide provided a blueprint to help Native American populations break free from “the welfare trap” of government dependence. During his extensive research for Dances with Dependency, Helin learned that the corrosive effects of economic dependency are not limited to the poor, but apply to other social classes, businesses and governments.
