Step Out of Problem-Solving and Become A Creator!

Most of us were brought up in a problem-solving orientation. You can see it in our thoughts about how "now isn't enough" or "the future will be better".

The drawback with this orientation is that you're very limited in your ability to shape and change your life. For many of us, creating the life and work we desire will require a whole new way of thinking. We must learn to live in a creative orientation rather than a problem-solving one.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover the freedom of creating from True Self rather than ego.
  • Understand the difference between problem-solving and creation.
  • Step into the reality that you desire and remove obstacles in the way.

A native Austinite, Dagan intended to follow his dad’s footsteps as a dentist.  But while majoring in Biology at the University of Texas, he studied psychology and business and ditched dentistry, developing an interest in how people tick.

In less than 2 years, appearing on local media outlets, becoming a finalist to pitch on the SXSW Accelerator stage; and making it to the final round of being called to be on the tv show Shark Tank.
