Why

SLIS

The place to discover all the things you

"Should Learn In School"

I'm continually frustrated by how much of the things that have helped me reach success in my careers and enjoy a high quality of life were not learned in school, but via mentors, conversations, research, readings

and life experiences.

 

My desire is to pass down this knowledge in an efficient
and condensed time frame so that others can

significantly impact their quality of life and
create fulfilling legacies of their own.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COURSE OBJECTIVE:

 

 

 

 

To share knowledge in the realms of health,

finance, career & life design, communication,

habit development, entrepreneurship,

relationship and mental health.
