There’s a very special thing that happens at the “Board Meeting” events Jim Sheils and his team put on for entrepreneurs and their kids. Twice yearly, world-class entrepreneurs and their kids make a trip to the north-east coast of Florida for a Board Meeting retreat. It’s not a camp for troubled kids, these retreats are designed for the rare family willing to dedicate time and resources for true growth, real education, and deep connection.

Those who take the brave step of attending a board meeting retreat leave with stronger parent-child connections, a greater sense of contribution, a deepened success mindset, and practical financial knowledge. Both parents and children who have attended past board meeting events say they experienced shifts in mindset and gained a new focus on what’s important to them.

In this short episode you’re going to hear Jim describe one of the main exercises they do with parents and children called “The Dream Room.” What happens there is nothing short of incredible. You’re going to hear how he leads the meeting, what comes of it, and some of the surprising things that have happened as a result. And if you’re interested in being part of one of these fantastic retreats, you’ll learn how you can find out more information.
