Today on the show we have Mike Iskandar. Mike is an educational consultant and he particularly works with middle school-aged children and helps them create emotional resilience.  He gives them a lot of the exercises and tools that I am only just now in these last few years of my life discovering and using to heal some of the wounds, traumas, and baggage that comes from growing up as a kid in middle school.

We have a really interesting conversation today about how to get kids opened up to these ideas that aren’t commonly taught in schools and there are a ton of parallels for all of you entrepreneurs, coaches, and marketers out there who are trying to get your message out and have an audience with a very tight attention span and if there is anybody with tight attention spans it has to be middle schools. If Mike can get them open to this, you can do anything. 

In This Episode:

  • They get very excited about their future selves and start thinking about what they have to do now to become that future version of themselves later.   
  • We can learn to connect to the younger parts of ourselves to make life more enjoyable and to have fun. These childhood qualities are the ones we need especially as entrepreneurs. 
  • It is really about giving these kids and teachers the tools they need. They can take those tools with them into the future. 
  • And so much more!!!
