Mads Misiak Friis

Founder & Podcast host

I have always been interested in personal growth and high performance. From playing different sports at a high-level from a younger age to discovering books by the Dalai Lama to Anthony Robbins. The journey led to me completing a Bachelor in Business and Psychology at Copenhagen Business School and a Master with a semester studying Psychology at Harvard University.

In my research, I have found that many of the resources focus 80% on the problems
we are facing and only 20% on the solutions. I want to flop this statistic around. The constant curiosity to learn more and desire to contribute to a more positive and fun way of learning about these subjects is what drives this podcast.
