Connection is one of the most important building blocks of resilience: our ability to bounce back from the hard things in life. When we are feeling grounded in our identity and know who we are at the core, connection to community happens as a result.

Having a group of individuals that you know will accept you and support you as you move forward in life is one of the best tools that you can have as you continue to chase your goals and dreams.

Hold up — let me introduce myself...

Hello, 👋 My name is Komal Minhas.

I’m a resilience educator, entrepreneur, investor, and host of the Lessons Learned Podcast. I am someone who has lived a lot of life in a short time.

And I am also someone that has faced hardship in life. Back in 2017, I went through a wellness crisis when I was diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer. I was also facing burnout at work, and made the decision to pick up my life and career in New York City to move back home to Canada in order to better support myself and my wellness.

I've also had the privilege of interviewing and learning from incredible individuals such as Michelle Obama, Rupi Kaur, Jagmeet Singh, Luvvie Ajayi Jones, and countless others.

Through my lived experience and learning from these powerhouse humans, I have gone through a complete transformation of my wellness rituals and daily routines and began heavily prioritizing them in my life.

I've become passionate about studying resilience and our ability as humans to come back from the hard things in life and within society. I now host a podcast, training sessions, and programs that investigate resilience and help you feel well in your mind and body.

I am also a passionate advocate for ways to increase resilience across our communities and societies, with an emphasis on intersectionality.
