We want to see more people succeed, build cool things, and feel amazing while doing so.

Too many bright and capable high-achievers fall into the alluring cycle of grinding away and focusing on the next milestone. And in the long run, they burnout, feel isolated, and never fulfill their potential.

Join us on the beautiful coast of Nicaragua for a 6 day all-inclusive experience that includes science-backed workshops, immersive adventures, restorative meditation and yoga, and world-class food.

Our mission is to build a global community of high-achieving entrepreneurs, leaders, and creatives who inspire, support, and elevate one another and pay it forward.


We first met in Nicaragua in 2017 while growing our respective businesses. 

We connected on our mutual curiosity about the world, penchant for constant growth, and desire to leverage our skills to help others succeed and live more fulfilling lives. 

And now we’re partnering together to bring together a badass group of entrepreneurs, leaders, and creatives in the uniquely inspiring and energizing Nicaraguan coast for 6 days of tremendous personal and professional growth.

Hey there, I’m Hana. I’m a serial entrepreneur with a passion for building a diverse network of friends and co-conspirators across the globe. 

I believe and have experienced that when you combine talented people across industries, cultures, and skillsets, MAGIC can happen.

In my previous life, I was a marketing director at ClassPass, a 10-yr digital brand strategist for global clients like Clarins, Rolex and Samsung, and a marketing consultant. 

After a serious burnout (and a particularly harsh winter in NYC), I quit my corporate life and decided to pursue an unknown industry to live, work, and travel the world on a megayacht. My yachting adventures eventually led me to my current role as the CEO/founder of Crew Compass apps, which focuses on bringing more people into the maritime industry. 

Now I advocate for and advise mission-based entrepreneurs who want to create a positive shift in the world. 

My own experience of professional and entrepreneurial burnout has taught me the value of integrating rest, community, and joy into my life. Success shouldn’t come at the expense of building meaningful connections.

I believe intentional travel and connecting with like-minded people can transform and elevate your life. I can’t wait to meet you!

Hi folks, I’m Calvin! I’m a Princeton-educated writer, growth hacker, and life enthusiast on a mission to help 10 million people live more fulfilling lives. 

I write about big ideas, the science of achievement, and the art of fulfillment. I also coach and advise entrepreneurs who want to scale their businesses and accelerate their careers. 

I’m a big believer in the power of collaboration and partner with inspiring entrepreneurs like Hana to bring community-enhancing and values-driven ideas to life.

In my former life, I worked on mergers and acquisitions at a big investment bank in New York. I decided that spending 15 hours a day in a cubicle doing work that didn’t excite me was not a fulfilling way to spend my finite time.

So I quit my job to travel the world and lead the growth strategy for a business unit within a remote startup. I reduced my life to a backpack, moved out of my New York apartment, and bought a one-way ticket to Cartagena Colombia.

I’ve traveled to 25 countries across 4 continents since then. And along the way, I’ve built multiple businesses, developed a diverse global community, and tried to help as many folks as possible along the way. 

If you’re really bored and want to learn more about me, you can find my story here.

Pumped for everyone coming to the experience!
