Today’s guest is a serial entrepreneur and conscious explorer.

During the pandemic, she launched Quantum Surfing, a powerful mix of neuroscience, quantum mechanics, and applied enlightenment—spiritual principles grounded in science so they're repeatable. She helps visionary entrepreneurs predictably create lucky outcomes, get the clarity to execute swiftly, and have the mindset to step into next-level impact. It’s a revolutionary method for success in life and business.

She has also founded Tavola Villa in Fiji—her living dream of a global sanctuary for people to be recharged by the wild and soulful islands that have captured her own heart. There she hosts Stillness Retreats, combining the mysticism of Fiji, the rebel spirit of Silicon Valley, and the transformative inventiveness of the story.

Please join me in welcoming Monica Laurence.

You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you’re running out of time.
