1st KWKC international course hosted in San Pedro
Wednesday, April 27th, 2016
On Saturday, April 23rd, ‘Keller Williams Kids Can’ (KWKC) hosted its first ever international course in San Pedro Town. Over thirty registered participants, ages 18 and over, gathered at Banyan Bay’s Conference Room, for the “QL: A World Changer Mindset” course. The free, six-hour course was powered by Gary Keller’s Quantum Leap and aimed at empowering those in attendance by inspiring big thinking, model wealth, building and instilling a passion for generous giving.
Keller, a successful real estate entrepreneur and co-founder of Keller Williams Realty (KWR) in the United States and now here in Belize, created the educational non-profit organization ‘KWKC’. Designed to inspire young adults to reach their optimum potential and help them create powerful habits that allow them to live a life of intention, Keller’s course provided a wealth of information for island youth.
Attendees also learned from qualified real-estate agent at KWR, Margot Weatherford, of Charleston, South Carolina USA, who was the international guest instructor for the course. An eight-chapter workbook was given out to all attendees, and topics such as the science of success, a quantum leap, a wealthy life, maximizing potential, balancing life’s routine, goal-setting, funding the life you desire, and the rules of money were covered. Each participant learned to create a personalized success strategy for each participant.
“My main hope is for the participants to take away the message of intentional living. Time waits for no one and we all have a certain amount of time to pursue our dreams and turn them into goals with deadlines. Anything is possible with the right formula and we are giving them the formula within this curriculum,” said Margot.
Throughout the lecture, she promoted a family-based environment by actively engaging students in conversation and inspiring them to take that quantum leap (a small, yet significant change). Giveaways were drawn from raffle tickets given at the entrance every two hours. A Kindle Fire, ‘Defining Decade Book’ by Meg Ryan, ‘The One Thing Book’ by Jay Papasan, and a 3-month membership The San Pedro Fitness Club were among the prizes given to the lucky winners of the raffle drawing.
