I met Max a few years ago on a hike in the hills above Malibu. It was a significant day for me for various reasons, and that meeting with Max lead me later on to take one of his weekend meditation workshops on the rooftop of the Mandel building in downtown LA. No, it is not my building. And the workshop was held at what used to be the Elevate Festival headquarters in LA before they moved to Ojai.
Max has been immersed in personal transformation, conscious business, and live trainings his entire life, as the son of David Simon M.D., co-founder of the world-renowned Chopra Center for Well-Being, best selling author, and renowned physician, and Julia Simon, a 40+ year Transcendental Meditation Teacher. Growing up with luminaries like Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford, and his father gave Max the direct experience of seeing what it takes to build a global empire that truly serves and is powerfully successful.
Immediately out of business school, Max became the Director of Consumer Products for the Chopra Center for Well-being, and used live events and innovative marketing strategies to transform this small, unprofitable division into a multi-million dollar business in just a few years. Simultaneously, he became the youngest certified instructor in the history of the organization, and traveled the world teaching personal transformation and human potential to thousands at the Chopra Center’s prestigious events.
Today, Max is a recognized global authority for teaching entrepreneurs how to create a powerful business that’s on-purpose, in-service, and highly profitable. His live training events – including his signature event, The Enlightened Entrepreneur Experience – are widely considered to be THE premier event for brilliant, hearted-centered, visionary minds to come together to discover new revolutionary strategies for making a bigger difference in the world through the vehicle of business. For his powerful contributions at such a young age, Martha Stewart awarded Max to be the “Next Big Idea” in Body & Soul Magazine.
Max is passionate about helping conscious entrepreneurs who want to impact large numbers with their message to create new levels of freedom, wealth, and happiness. His ability to powerfully assist these leading edge thinkers and leaders is due in large part to his mastery in creating consistently sold-out live events where deep transformation occurs for all participants.
I look forward to staying in touch with Max and hope to re-connect with him when the time is right.
