Welcome to the world of Entrepreneurship.

  • Moses fled Egypt to become a shepherd in Sinai 
  • Jesus roamed the land of Israel to preach to the masses 
  • Buddha was a wandering Monk 
  • Mohammed, a travelling merchant who often slept and meditated in remote caves
  • It was in their separation from home, family, friends, community and comfort zone that these individuals found 3 things - God, Themselves and a New Religion

  • They all went through a similar process, a journey of separation from forces in their lives that limited their growth and expression, this process like a right of passage, an initiation.
  • An initiation is a journey of growth, discovery, and transformation that allows you to find out who you are, where you are going and what you've got to offer to this world.
  • Welcome to the world of Entrepreneurship.
