THE FUTURE OF AUTHENTIC GENIUS
 

SEASON 1: EPISODE 1

MOVE PAST THE WAITING PLACE

Follow the lives of three of the most iconic geniuses of all times. Learn from the strategies and tactics Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein and Frida Kahlo used to overcome the most daunting challenges. They managed to navigate very confusing and complex times. They moved past wars, depression, self doubt, chronic illnesses and brutal losses. They did not just blamed "the system". They hacked it.

 

These geniuses use skills that all of us can use to hack our systems. It’s not easy. Sometimes, it gets messy before it gets clean. But like these three people, you can attain significant genius in a way that fits who you are. As these geniuses show, your own way of genius is the only way that will work for you.
