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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Michael Signore

Associate, J.P. Morgan

The start of my Breakout journey was a reluctant one. I was recommended to Cam and Cornelius by a friend to inject some fuel into my life and career. However, I worried that it wasn’t the right time as I was moving house and planning on quitting my job. How wrong I was.

Breakouts gave me the confidence to chase my goals without restraint. The curriculum gave me perspective on what I wanted to achieve in my life, and after some deep inward reflection with Cam and Cornelius, I was fully focused on what I needed to set out to do.

The media industry I work in is cut-throat and constantly makes you doubt your self-worth. Breakouts allowed me to realise that I don’t need to fear the industry and that I had more to offer than I ever thought I did. 

Cam and Cornelius could never do enough while I was in Breakouts, helping every step of the way, even when life got busy. The one-on-one time they give you and the exercises they put you through give your life a full MoT, enabling you to be in top mental shape to achieve your goals.

I would thoroughly recommend joining them whenever you get the opportunity. They have big dreams and plans, and you’d be a fool not to jump on board while you still can.

Breakouts was an incredibly thoughtful course that helped me gain clarity and confidence over what I’m going to do next. The curriculum was full of thoughtful readings, assignments, and lectures that led to fantastic forced introspection. I’d recommend Breakouts to anyone that’s looking to break out from their current path, re-invent themselves, or take a career risk.

Ben Weiss

Founder & CEO, Zcruit

I came into Breakouts like a cartoon character who’d lost their glasses. I had a general idea of where I wanted to go, but I was stumbling through a hazy vision.

Cam and Cornelius, through their network of amazing professionals and tried-and-tested exercises, gave me clarity. They helped me to work out exactly what I wanted and formulate a path to get there.

Sometimes the introspection was personally challenging, but through their infectious, relentless energy, I come out of the experience far richer for the experience.

Data Analyst, Tesco; Founder of SW6 Stats

I joined Breakouts immediately after being made redundant by a multi-million dollar global sports brand. I’d build their podcast into one of the best in the world with an audience of millions on social. I was given none of my IP and forced to start all over again. Alongside my business partner, we entered Breakouts looking for a company strategy that would allow us to go big and go home. We came in with real ambitions of leveraging Cam + Cornelius’ expertise to build our own sustainable business while working through the curriculum to define our next steps. We wanted to get paid to be ourselves. 

In10 weeks, we experienced immense progress. We launched, scaled and grew our new brand Ranks FC. We became the #1 soccer podcast in America in just two weeks and have since signed contracts with European streaming platform LiveScore, fitness brand New Balance, and American podcast network Blue Wire, all the while acquiring 937 paying subscribers for our exclusive content on Patreon.

Breakouts helped me gain the self-confidence to carve my own career path as an abstract painter.

Before Breakouts, I drifted through life choices that didn’t really align with what I truly wanted to do. I gained tools and knowledge through Breakouts that helped me pursue my goals in a way that was actually aligned with my life’s intentions. Breakouts pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me realize it’s up to me to make this happen, and I am the only one who can get in the way.

It’s clear from the start that the Breakouts team genuinely care about our personal stories. They work side by side with every student to make sure we are all getting the most out of the curriculum and the community. The class is highly individualized and at the same time focused on a common goal – that we each become our version of our best selves. I began Breakouts scared to the leap to become a full-time artist. And by the end, I had not only made the leap but had my entire business up and running.
