Raison d'être
World Class Exposure -F Expert Knowledge + Practical Guidance From Extraordinary Leaders & World Class Institutions = Accelerated Career Advancement ÷ Business Growth + Life Transformation Very few gain this OR work towards gaining this, EVER.
College & Universities are one of the most crucial Institutional Enablers of your Success Yet, except select World Class Institutions, MOST still focus ONLY on Academics, Grades, University Ranks, Antiquated Course Syllabus & Campus Placements, with very few understanding the value & importance of "Holistic" Leadership Development & in laying its foundation while at college, to prepare them for long term success
Employers are one of the most crucial Institutional Enablers of your Success Except select World Class "Employers" who understand the importance of investing in their employees towards long term Leadership Development & actualization of excellence potential, MOST utilize the employees "current skills" to get the work done & when "these skills" are antiquated, simply discard them. In the mindsets of most Employers, "Future Proofing" is an Employee problem, NOT theirs,
You are the Architect of your own Future Most Students & Working Professionals Transfer this responsibility to their College, Universities & Employers. By NOT investing enough in their future, they are making possibly the MOST expensive mistake of their professional life
The best way to Learn is from the Achievements & Mistakes of the Worlds Most Visible/Successful Leaders Very few do this by Modelling the Masters. MOST do this by "Reinventing the Wheel" the hard way, in an Extremely Inefficient Approach, consuming some of the most Expensive & Valuable things in a persons life, their Time & Youthful phase of Life.
You should be very Conscious about Whom you seek advice from & for What, as the responses and your reactions to them are Crucial in determining your Long-Term Success Given the lack of access to the World's Best Leaders, most seek inputs from whom they know, NOT necessarily the most competent, making another very expensive mistake.

Surprisingly, millions are trying to discover this approach on their own & some are reinventing this wheel of success, every day
of the year, with exceptional grit, perseverance & determination to compensate for the lack of access to World Class Exposure, Expert Knowledge & Practical Guidance.
