Brandon Hakim is on a mission to give you the education you’ll never get in school.
When he was in college, he walks into the dean’s office of his University and says “I feel like we’re getting an outdated education.”
She says…they’re working on it. So he started reading books.
One book turned into two. Then into four. Eventually into over 1,000.
He’s since helped over 360,000 people learn faster, work more efficiently, and download the wisdom from thousands of pages of books into their brains in a fraction of the time it would take to sit down and read a book.
Benjamin Marcovitz is a champion for growth, a leadership expert, and the founder and CEO of the Rise Institute, which advances the understanding that human beings can grow and develop beyond their estimations, and that expecting radical growth from those who struggle can and should be the norm. Using his expertise in consulting work, background in education, and boots-on-the-ground research on human behavior, Marcovitz helps leaders accelerate their work and generate breakthrough performance in their employees. He believes the world will be transformed if people understand and recognize the possibilities for growth within everyone.
