In-person, hands-on workshops to help shape your business from the outset, by learning to use our tactical tools.
Founded in 2018 by Samhita Jayanti, ideamix is a media and technology company creating community, content, and practical tooling for coaches, founders, professionals, students and mentors. The ideamix community is on a constant search for learning, connection and resources to help each individual realize their own potential.
Each of us is at our best when the way we live and work are in harmony, consistent with our values and authentic selves. It doesn’t just happen on its own – it takes coaching, self-reflection and mentorship. One of our “ideamixers” said it best: It isn’t work when you love it, and if you are what you do, then what you do needs to reflect who you are.
