Mindlift Workshop with Kasper Van Der Meulen

Vancouver Real is excited to bring you Kasper Van Der Meulen, head teacher of the Wim Hof Academy and master of the mind

“The mind is a tool that can be developed through training, just like any muscle in the body”

~ Kasper van der Meulen

We live in an amazing era of high-speed information, hyper-connection and endless opportunity, but it also faces us with the challenges of mass-distraction, negative stress and analysis paralysis. The good news is that this amazing new world also offers us the opportunity – like never before – to take responsibility into our own hands, to control our lifestyle factors, and to train our minds to be healthy and happy and free to choose the life we want.

Profile Labs

The objective of the Founder’s Circle is to build a bulletproof group of exceptional entrepreneurs with different skills who adopt the attitude of supporting each other no matter what.  This is the difference between doing it alone and having a powerful support network. We extend that support with the Expert Dojo community, with the goal of connecting and utilizing their resources and ultimately spending time at the Dojo, initially at the upcoming Investor Festival.

The plan is to have three full day Founder Circle sessions, one each month, leading up to the Investor Festival. Each Thursday between the all day sessions we will have open office hours from 10-12 for companies to meet in person or Skype/Hangout in for support and discussion. More of this during our session on Thursday.

We are looking forward to building the best support group you’ve ever been involved with! Let’s make this epic!

Here it is the outline of the day:
• 10am – Getting to know each other – Intros and Issues facing us in 2017
MILESTONES – Bryan McMahon, Founder, Expert Dojo
• 11am – Intro to the Founder’s Circle program
• 12pm – Milestone planning in 2017
