Personal R&D + Life Purpose
“Growth only occurs in the state of discomfort.” – TEDx
Personal R&D + Life Purpose courses are based upon the belief that before you can discover your dreams and pursue making and creating something that will be meaningful to others, you must focus on personal development, relationships, legacy, and things that last. The goal is to discover who you are, to re-create yourself and your surroundings so you can manage success, make an impact, and maximize your value for time.
