Kilimanjaro when he was 12 years old, was in Egypt one week before the start of the Arab Spring, spent a day with Bono on Canada’s Parliament Hill, has played recycled drums with Marshawn Lynch in Kenya, shot blowguns in the Amazon, first met Bill Gates backstage at a concert, and lived in a shipping container in war-torn Mogadishu.

Mitch Kurylowicz believes in incentive; in relationships, in business, and in life. You can feel personally happy when you give your time, energy or money. You can also make money when you empower people with opportunity limitations. Being a part of the solution is in your best interest, and Mitch will guide you to find out why and what you can do about it.
Being lucky (with health, safety and access to opportunity) means that you are in the global minority. Mitch takes you around the world on his journey to all corners of the planet, through conversations with the Amazonian Shaman, the Maasai Warrior, the Indian man who lives in the street median, and the richest 1%, to show you what the happiest people and the heroes have in common.
