Where it all started...
Without knowing each other, Loic, Sean and Ruan travelled to Portugal during the pandemic. Being drawn by the freedom of working remotely and the breath taking nature of Portugal their mutual interests brought them together. With the intention to combine physical, mental, and intellectual activities to help others to find and optimal work/life/purpose balance they started working on an idea that empowers people to become the best versions of themselves.
Having quite some experience in working for cooperates, and a lot of own-life adventures to inspire others, the team was slightly muscular and inexperienced in the field of work they were aiming for.Recalling an inspiring personal development coach who Ruan met during his own development program as a banker, he approached Saskia.
Although she and her family were sailing the world at that moment, the request came at a perfect timing.
Saskia had just intended to add the adventurous layer to her professional career in order to inspire others and experience more adventure for het own.
The team worked on a balanced approach the encapsulate four main pillars; mental health, physical health, relationships and professional career. With a clear overview of these pillars they designed a program that uses exercises to bring awareness and tools to work on each separate field.
