Mindvalley has grown exponentially over the past few years and we owe our success not just to our values and the hard work, innovation, creativity and dedication of our team, but we have also been and always will be looking to great businesses, leaders, companies and brands to inspire us with their methods, campaigns and ideas.
Such was the platform when we attended Yanik Silver’s Underground Online Seminar 8 this year, the event that gathered some of the best underdogs and money makers of internet marketing and businesses. Among the amazing personalities we met was Rohit Bhargava, a blogger and speaker on marketing, branding and social media.
After watching Vishen’s presentation on Mindvalley Insights, our free training and tools portal in our mission to shift online marketing, Rohit wrote a blog post entitled How Mindvalley Is Building The Next TED, in which he compared us to the international speaker stage for ideas. Below is an excerpt from the post:
“This morning I watched an amazing TED video of flying robots that can operate autonomously and collaborate with each other at the same time. It is exciting technology … just the kind of thing you would expect to come out of a TED event. As I write this, the video (and its big finish where the robots play a song together) is rapidly going viral online, and I have to admit I love watching things like this. The only problem is, I’m not sure what I can do with this mind blowing example except to share it with friends. It is great to get me thinking about the world, but not immediately easy to apply to my daily life.
Earlier today on stage at the Underground Online Seminar 8, Vishen Lakhiani had a collaborative idea of his own to unveil. In a conference room filled with over 500 online entrepreneurs – many of whom have made their entire fortunes selling advice online – his announcement was unexpected, to say the least. As Co-Founder and CEO of a company named Mindvalley that publishes personal growth products, Vishen fit right in with the group of internet business owners packed into the crowded Crystal City hotel ballroom just a few minutes outside Washington DC.”
To be compared to an organization such as TED, a par that Mindvalley itself aspires to meet, is an honor. We have been featured in many publications before, but Rohit has got us beaming like a triumphant kid with his generous review and of course his support in our cause to shift online marketing. Read Rohit’s reasoning from the rest of his post here.
