Blow your Mind - Brainchild of Mindvalley
Big Visions with Vishen —
Our mission is to empower people to live healthier and happier lives, and unleash their fullest human potential (our tagline is Be Extraordinary), by introducing them to tools and ideas that are currently missing from traditional education systems,” said Vishen, who is determined to help revolutionize the global education system. “Our goal? To launch a school for one billion people worldwide.
Mindvalley in the beginning was just a small e-commerce store that sold self-help programs and courses. “I started Mindvalley with $700 and a beat-up laptop in Starbucks,” is often how Vishen would begin the Mindvalley origin story. But in 2004, after he struggled to keep his US Visa, he moved back to Kuala Lumpur, at the height of a national brain drain, and years before the birth of the startup ecosystem in Asia.
Lakhiani made it his mission to build one of the best workplaces in the world in Malaysia, despite the odds. Today, Vishen leads a 200-strong team of over 40 nationalities under a multi award-winning company culture.
In the past decade, Mindvalley has garnered a global reputation for being a leading edu-tech company specializing in modern learning experiences and content, launching online academies and digital platforms Apple App & Google Android that publishes personal growth education in areas such as wellbeing, mindfulness, relationships, fitness, entrepreneurship & more.

BOOK- The Code Of The Extraordinary Mind:
10 Unconventional Laws to Redefine Your Life and Succeed On Your Own Terms is a roadmap to breaking free from the shackles of human cultural and education limitations. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly made up in our heads and chosen not by rational choice — but instead by imitation and cultural conditioning.
