    The future of our society depends on our gifted children - the population in which we’ll find our next Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, or Virginia Woolf. Yet the gifts and talents of some of our most brilliant kids may never be recognized because these children fall into a group known as twice exceptional, or "2e". Twice exceptional kids are both gifted and diagnosed with a disability - often ADHD or an Autism Spectrum Disorder - leading teachers and parents to overlook the child’s talents and focus solely on his weaknesses. Too often, these children get lost in a cycle of chasing diagnostic labels and are never given the tools to fully realize their potential.

    It's an event so popular, it's sold out up to a year in advance. It's an experience so powerful, participants willingly pay the $30,000 ticket price and return again and again. It's a place where dreams are made, expectations are exceeded, and multimillionaires are born. It's the Maui Mastermind, the most exclusive wealth retreat in the world, and its secrets have been kept behind closed doors. Until now.
