TESTIMONIALS

Breakouts was my respite on my toughest days and the highlight of my week on every other. Emotional cross-training. I love it here.

Jon Jackson

Writer & Nieman Fellow

Breakouts was introduced to me by a friend. An environment unlike anything I have experienced, I felt an inexplicable draw to what has now become a community I could not see myself without. My understanding of the world has shifted as this group has enveloped all of its members with curiosity, enthusiasm, and unconditional support. Breakouts can only be felt-as I have learned, the risk is worth the reward.

Alexia Williams

Educator & Fulbright Scholar

Breakouts should be something everyone is required to take. Regardless of where you are in your journey, this course enables you to take back ownership of your life.

When I first joined Breakouts, I was riding every wave. Coasting actually. Now, a few months later, I am free from letting my work and the “systems” rule me. I feel empowered to make it different. I can be free; I can be authentic without it being weak. And throw the rulebook out the window. Breakouts, for me, reminded me of why I started this business.

Laura Deems

Abstract Painter, LD & Co.

Breakouts opened a world of possibilities before my eyes, of the different ways in which I can live my life, and on the fact that I actually get to choose how I live it. It helped me to look within and reflect with direction and purpose. It made me explore aspects of my personality and my reality that I hadn’t before. It introduced me to a community of intelligent, self-aware individuals who share similar questions and aspirations despite our different backgrounds and realities. It exposed me to valuable work from top authors, speakers and entrepreneurs. And it has given me a boost of energy to pursue a life of joy and fulfilment.

Yamel Alonso

Finance Manager, Mezcal El Silencio

Breakouts gave me a safe and love-bound platform to constructively analyse myself and break down who I think I am and where I want to go. Chewing the fat with the GMTeezahs on a Wednesday night has lit up my life for the past 8 weeks. Who’d have thought getting naked on a webcam with a bunch of blokes would be the highlight of my summer as a 25-year-old?

Any entrepreneur or business owner looking to take it to the next level needs to join Breakouts. After two years of intensive content creation, my product and short-term vision were clear. My rocket was ready for launch, but the long-term implementation felt fuzzy. I joined Breakouts to craft my strategic vision, in particular, how to monetize my craft. It was the launchpad I needed to build a killer 2-3 year business plan. Through its intentional curriculum and genuine community, I was challenged to look inward and supported every step of the way. Breakouts were everything I didn’t know I needed!

Sam Viola

Founder, Uproute Travel

Breakouts expanded my boundaries of comfort that empowered me to express my vulnerabilities, share my learnings with others, and it concluded with a new group of lifelong connections I’ll forever cherish.

Head of Partnerships, Ridy

Breakouts was more valuable than any class I ever took during my time at the University of Notre Dame. 
Zach Imholte

Team Lead, Palantir

After a challenging year where I felt like my identity has been stripped away, Breakouts provided me with community, intellectual stimulation and direction. All the things I’ve been yearning for, Breakouts was able to provide me with. It helped me regain my confidence and momentum I’d lost during the pandemic while meeting new people who helped me see things from a different perspective. It took me out of my comfort zone and challenged me daily. I had an amazing time. I’ve met some amazing people, and I’m extremely proud of what I achieved during the 10 weeks. Well worth it.

Thomas Cain

Advertiser & Podcast Host, JCDecaux

Breakouts gives you the opportunity to open up and hear different perspectives on roadblocks you may be encountering throughout your journey. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, or in the finance world like myself, Breakouts will open you up to a whole new way of thinking. The relationships I developed along the way are lifelong. Taking Breakouts was the best thing I could have done this year. To see the progress you can make in only 10 weeks is truly astonishing.
