Why Capsule?

Capsule is my no-regrets course.

If you could go back in time,

what would you change?

Take it from a former investor: You are your best investment.

After Princeton, Harvard Business School, and six years of finance, I've been disappointed to see so many high achievers, myself included, put themselves last. 

Today, personal problems affect professional performance. Without learning about and addressing root causes, dealing poorly with difficulties, from university through our first jobs and relationships, becomes a hard-to-fix habit. Whether mental health or great managers, it all begins with learning self-management. 

Self-awareness is one of the most important keys to success. Yet, how do we develop it? Today, society places an unfair onus on parents to teach children the emotional literacy that many were never exposed to themselves. Capsule's mission is to create structural change in how we develop ourselves -- and our next generation -- through companies and schools.

I'm an impatient, Type-A introvert. That's why I created Capsule, a private, efficient, affordable soft skills & self-development journey. Half crash course, half online journal, we aim to be the stitch in time that saves nine, capturing all populations, inclusive of those, like me, who don't take to therapy or coaching.

Would our marriages be happier if we learned relationship science at 18 rather than 58? Would our careers be more fulfilling if we made purposeful, value-driven decisions from day one? If entire companies or campuses had common literacy, could we decrease misunderstandings and help friends help one another?

That's our mission: to help us manage the one investment we often take for granted.

We have one life. Together, let's go live our best adventures.
