"Change is the one constant in life, the thing that makes us all human, despite our personal or professional choices," says de Bonvoisin "The value of a show like 'Change Nation' is to create an environment with a central theme of change—change in the workplace, in health, in education, in society, in the family dynamic and in our passion and interests. 'Change Nation' connects the First30Days community with those who have made or faced major life changes and have achieved success or expertise in their respective fields. My hope is that their stories are helpful and inspiring to others going through or considering changes in their lives," adds de Bonvoisin.
