Everyone wants to improve. Whether you want to become a better leader, better sleeper or reduce your anxiety, we all want to improve our lives. And where do you usually turn to? Books, audiobooks, or the internet. But if you're honest have the self-development books you've read led to the changes you'd hoped for?

We are building a B2B and B2C platform, summarising books into courses from leading self development authors. Already signed 13 authors including NYT bestsellers: Dan Pink (NYT Bestseller, 22m+ views of Ted Talk) Johann Hari (NYT Bestseller, 20m+ views of Ted Talk), Dan Goleman (NYT Bestseller, 5m+ books sold), and Adam Grant (NYT Bestseller, 20m+ Ted Talk Views) and others.  

We launched our MVP on a single book, The Anxiety Solution, last year which has consistently received amazing 5* reviews on the app store.
