One of our top stories this week is about Peru being the new land of opportunities. Ever since we arrived in Peru back in 2003, I’ve always said that Peru is a land of opportunity. Yes, we have many challenges to face, but Peru is so rich. We have the ocean full of delicious fish and seafood, the coast where agriculture is booming, the mountains full of minerals and the jungle that has provided mankind with a filter to clean up our air, plants to heal us, and fresh water all year round.

If it wasn’t for the continued mismanagement that we always end up with, we could be as wealthy and advanced as any Northern European Country. Maybe I’m naive, but I believe we can still make it. Yes, it’ll take a miracle, but around here miracles do happen.

Prom Peru launched a new movie earlier this week, to promote the land of the Incas worldwide. I think they did a great job, what do you think? Please leave a comment!

Why Happiness is the New Productivity (The Story of Mindvalley)

(Video: Mindvalley YouTube)

Whenever I wish to inspire and motivate people to love what they do and/or start their own business, I always use examples of how I would do it myself, which is necessary if you wish to become a great mentor. This means I have to look for examples of people I trust, which recently led me to Vishen Lakhiani, the founder of

He started his business many years ago for about $150 and today inspires countless people with his online digital platform of courses and seminars. Back in 2011, he gave a speech (which I embedded above) which is just incredible! If you are a leader, business owner, entrepreneur and wish to be different than most here and have success, I’m convinced you can learn a few things from Vishen Lakhiani in this video. I admire him for what he has achieved and he himself has gained inspiration from many known people, which he’ll also mention during his presentation.

Enjoy and have a great & inspiring weekend,


P.S. This week’s joke:
A blonde goes into a computer store and asks the clerk, 'œWhere do you keep the curtains for computers?' The clerk answers with a puzzled face, 'œCurtains for computers? You don't need curtains for computers.' The blonde's eyes widen and she shakes her head as she answers, 'œHello!?? My computer has Windows!!'

    Yes Mr Mindvalley, it'll work for you, when you bring in your own people, or rely on the locals who have the necessary education, depleting the workforce from the brains local companies need. Because, don't kid yourself, the poor and lowercase class people, the majority of Peruvian society, the "pueblo", will not benefit from the wonderful scheme you are so proudly talking about. There will be more wealth in and out of Peru, but, as always has been, the people won't benefit from it. It'll take generations before a change takes place, and I'm sorry to say, this generation is not in the band's wagon. And quit this idea of comparing everything to Starbucks values, that is the curse of the newly rich dreamer: more wealth for more rubbish.

    Good article, thank you for staying the course and congratulations on your success. While thinking about what might help the country to find its way and set its course, it occurs to me that first it needs ti eatablish where it is at. We all know about its history (the good and the bad), and recognize the present (the ugly) but we romanticize the past and don't seem to be able to idealize our future based on improved education, knowledge and technology. Instead we revert always to the best sst commonplace of our rural, natural and touristic attractions. Lets start presenting Peru for its future rather than sumply for its beauties.
