Have you ever lived your life on autopilot, only to realize that your trajectory is totally off course?

If you're like a majority of millennials, you've been told the same old narrative by your parents, teachers, and peers:

  • Get good grades in school so you can get in a good college or university

  • Maintain a high GPA and you'll have your pick of the litter in your job search

  • Graduate with that holy piece of paper we call a degree and the world will be your oyster

Growing up, you've likely followed the advice blindly to a T.

So now that you're in your early adulthood...

Why don't you have the job you want? Why don't you feel fulfilled in your work? Why do you feel like you can't design life the way you want? 

It's because wanting what's best for you and knowing what's best for you are TOTALLY different.

Your parents and teachers don't lead you astray out of mal-intent. They've also fallen into the same societal traps.

But you want more out of your life. You want to design your life so you can work on your schedule, relocate anywhere in the world, and look in the mirror knowing you are your own boss. You want your work to have purpose and you want to work in your passion zone. You want to make an impact in the world and live an exceptional life.

To do this, you need to act against the grain of society. You need do to things totally counterintuitive of how the rest of the world does it. 

To get radical results, you need to make radical changes.

That's what I did in my early adulthood. 

  • Instead of finishing my degree just for the sake of having a piece of paper, I went to work for a startup and apprentice under active entrepreneurs

  • Instead of having the traditional definition of a "work-life balance" where the clock strikes 5PM on Friday and I play video games or go clubbing, I spent my free time growing, learning and tackling cool passion projects

  • Instead of just going with the flow in life and "learning organically", I became super intentional and militant about my personal and professional development

This process has RADICALLY changed my life for the better. And I want to pass on to you my learnings from years of intentional growth consuming books, podcasts, conferences and more forms of learning!

That's in essence why I created Model Millennials University.

To create courses that will empower you in 4 key areas:

  • Self Mastery

  • Professional

  • Relationships

  • Leadership

Self Mastery sets a foundation for your life. By mastering the mental, physical, and spiritual areas in your life such as your EQ, your character, your finances, your health...etc. you will have the foundation to perform at a high level in anything you do.

The average person will spend over 80,000 hours working in their lifetime. By mastering your Professional life, you will find fulfillment and purpose in your vocation. 

Even the timidest person will influence 10,000 people in their lifetime. Your ability to build and sustain healthy and supporting Relationships will be a crucial life skill.

Leadership is the ultimate multiplier. It takes your impact from addition to multiplication and eventually exponential growth. 

Our hope is that these courses will level up your life chops and add tremendous value in your life!
