    The Peak Performance Workshop

    Life & Business Strategies For Busy People Who Want To Stop Making Excuses And Start Winning Big


    The Peak Performance Workshop will give you the tools to get both clear and effective so that you can accomplish your life and business goals in record time — and set even bigger ones for next time.

    Early Birds get $100 off + a “buddy pass” to bring a friend or family member to the workshop. It’s a no-brainer, if you have a brain 🙂

      Here’s What You’ll Learn:

      • Get sharp: mastering focus, discipline and attention to detail that gets you paid and promoted.

      • Get fast: time management for getting more done at work and beating the competition off the line.

      • Building positive habits: meditation, financial, health, relationships

      • Destroying negative habits: procrastination, self-doubt, lack of focus / discipline 

      • Mental health and dealing with stress of high-performance.

      • Rising to the top of your field: how to get there in ½ the time

      The Details:

      • The workshop will be taught live on March 4th and 5th. You do not have to attend live — it will be recorded if you cannot make it.

      • Program material will be taught by Daniel + special guests.

      • We are giving away crypto prizes during the workshop, just for fun. Make sure you attend!

      • There are only 100 available tickets total for this workshop. We sell out every time.

      • Regular tickets for the workshop at full price are $297. Early Bird VIPs get $100 off + 1 “buddy pass” for a dedicated member of your friends / family circle.

      • You’re getting two tickets for less than $200. If you split it with your buddy, that’s only $100 per person — only $50 per day for the workshop. Crazy good deal.

      • Early bird ticket sales close on Monday, Feb 28 at 11:59pm PST.

      We are all creators, but it’s easy to lose touch with that ability in our daily lives.
