Unblind The Mind with Darren Harris & Jaina Mistry

It’s very easy to get stuck in a rut with our businesses and personal lives, living daily only viewing things via a tunnel vision. We can become blind to changes needed, holding us back from developing and growing.

Darren Harris works with organizational talent that want to change how they see themselves, other people and the world around them so they can navigate the invisible obstacles blocking their path to success. Jaina’s unique approach of “seeing things differently” and “making adversity your asset” is her signature way of helping clients elevate their physical and mental fitness in the easiest way to experience optimal results in life and business.

Join us for a truly inspiring show where Darren & Jaina will inspire change in how we see ourselves, other people, and the world around us, so we can navigate the invisible obstacles blocking our path to success.
