"Aha Moment" Tour

Have you had a big idea or moment of clarity that changed your life?  Share it with the world as part of Mutual of Omaha’s national “Aha Moment” tour, coming to Casper Thursday and Friday, July 24 and 25.  The tour videographer and team will be set up just outside the Natrona County Public Library to record interviews with a variety of local residents.  This opportunity is free and open to the public – visit www.ahamoment.com/tour to sign up for an interview time slot (filming open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. each day).  Each individual will receive a link to their interview via email to share as they see fit.

What is an “aha moment? “It’s a moment of clarity, a defining moment where you gain real wisdom – wisdom you can use to change your life. Whether big or small, funny or sad, they can be surprising and inspiring. Each one is unique, deeply personal, and we think, worth sharing” – additional information available at ahamoment.com.
