Why is This Important for Entrepreneurs and Professionals?

It’s no secret that highly successful people are better able to generate new ideas, get out of their own way, break patterns of limitation, make good decisions and differentiate.

Yet so many entrepreneurs spend countless hours, days, weeks, years and decades trying to separate themselves from the pack and think differently.

It’s easier said than done, because there seems to be an infinite supply of distractions competing for our attention. Between self-sabotage, uncertainty and the challenges of generating new ideas, it’s easy to stay stuck.

This is why the Mad Genius Advantage was created; to help you learn the principles, techniques and insight to move past old thinking.

What is the State of Mad Genius?

The Mad Genius sees the world through the lens of novelty, creativity and originality, with the courage and vulnerability to be true to who they are, and the energy and clarity to generate and develop new ideas and products that move the world forward.

The Host of the Mad Genius Advantage: Who is Reef Karim?

My name is Reef Karim.

As a double board-certified medical physician specializing in human behavior, neuroscience, creativity and addiction, and as a performing artist, I am familiar with both the darkest corners and the creative potential of the mind.

I created the Mad Genius program because I know the pain of not maximizing your abilities, of feeling like there’s something missing but not knowing how to change it, of feeling like you’re wasting your time, energy and talent because you have all this potential but it’s not activated.

The concept is simple:

Change the way you think to change the way you and your message are received. 

The ultimate power of transformation is not in your marketing, it’s in your mind. 

“I could write you a prescription
but expanding your mind is way more effective.”

I first stumbled upon these Mad Genius principles in the midst of my own personal transformation. Once I saw how well it worked for me, I shared aspects of this method with private clients and patients at my treatment center. Once I saw drastic changes in them, I started sharing this concept on stages all over the world.

I now help people leverage practical insights from neuroscience for mental clarity, teach creative performance techniques for powerful presentations & cognitive flexibility and share elements of humanistic psychology to prime minds for original thinking.

The most successful leaders are not clones, they are originals.

It’s time for you to be seen and recognized for your abilities and unique perspective.

If you’re ready to let out your Mad Genius, I’m ready to show you how.

And now the standard “fancy pants” biography…

Rarely do you see a scientist and performing artist sharing the same stage, let alone the same mind. But Reef Karim is an academic by day and creative by night who specializes in connecting our cognitive and creative mind and teaches entrepreneurs, professionals and creative leaders the art of divergent thinking, creative disruption and originality activation for high performance in business and life. Reef founded the theory of madness and the mad genius incubator, served as an assistant clinical professor at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience for over a decade, published in prestigious medical journals and now speaks on stages all over the world. Reef’s innovative work has been profiled in Time, Forbes, Business Insider, Oprah.com and he’s been interviewed by Oprah, Larry King, Deepak Chopra, Anderson Cooper and many others. For his groundbreaking work in innovation, medicine and entertainment, Reef was voted one of LA’s Most Fascinating People and one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive (hey, smart is sexy!)
