Everyone has that little voice inside their head that talks to them each day. For some of us, that little voice cheers us on, telling us we are great at what we do, or we are capable and smart. For others, that little voice constantly tells us we aren’t good enough, we aren’t smart enough, or we don’t measure up. For many young people, these last few years have planted a lot of self-doubt in their minds. For some, it has been so relentless they are exhibiting signs of anxiety, becoming depressed, lacking motivation, and just finding it easier to give up. They struggle to achieve their personal and school-based goals.  Join us for our special masterclass to learn how to change their self-talk so it is more positive and they can discover who they really are and what they are great at.  See the comments below where you can go to find out more and how to register for the free masterclass.

Enjoyed this challenge immensely. It is foundational to what we're developing that mirrors Roger's concept around the Genius U resorts: 'entrepreneur incubators by default", or physical spaces and environments for learnings the educational platform attracts. It was delightful to learn this had been created elsewhere in Genius U the same as we are at an earlier stage, thus our venue partner plan. Our spin is adding to the same properties residences for active adults and seniors, many of whom are downsizing from homeownership to live in a resort environment to maximize their empty next years to contribute to the next generation and the lives of their grandchildren in the most optimized ways. So with the deck provided in this microschool we added a resident profile and development plan. Hope it's interesting or helpful. Thanks for the team here and looking forward to working together more closely in the future, stateside and globally as well.
