Calling All Rebels, Misfits, and Troublemakers

Join the Inner Circle and get the tools, training, and support you need to achieve big goals and do what others think is impossible.

It’s hard to imagine now, but in the late 90s, Apple was nearly bankrupt. In response, they launched the now-famous “Think Different” commercial, which started with these stirring words:

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently…They’re not fond of rules.

And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

Because they change things.”

The campaign is largely credited for sparking Apple’s re-emergence.


More than the brand, more than the product, more than any other factor, that message resonates with so many because we’re drawn to those who carve their own path — the misfits, rebels, and troublemakers — and secretly want to join their ranks.

Deep down, we all know we’re meant for more.

But the sad reality is most people won’t heed the call.

Going against the grain can be hard, scary, and lonely. We’re told from the time we can walk to not cause a ruckus, to color inside the lines, and do what we can to fit in.

So we take the safe route, day after day, year after year, shushing the voice inside that begs us to be brave.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

The Inner Circle is our private community where misfits, rebels, and contrarians come together to network, collaborate, and stress test their big ideas.

It’s a place where people feel encouraged and supported to take big — sometimes terrifying — leaps forward in their lives.

If you’ve felt alone and uncertain of how to demand more from your life, please join us.

From weekly masterclasses to monthly coaching calls, and 24/7 private Inner Circle community, you’ll find the motivation and practical steps to take to ensure continual progress.

Our members are already accomplishing incredible things.

We’ve had members write and publish books, jump into brand new fulfilling careers, launch successful businesses, break harmful habits, discover new hobbies and passions, and run their first marathons (just to name a few!).

Will you be next?

We’re waiting for you.

“Imagine having a protected environment where you can share your thoughts as well as struggles and get valuable, encouraging, and actionable advice. This is what being a member of the Inner Circle means to me. I never know what I’ll learn the next week in the Inner Circle—that I’ll learn something that truly matters to me is guaranteed.”

—Sharine Borslein (

“Ozan has convened a community of us all and given us a forum to interact, at our own pace and in our own words, from around the world… and invited us to help one another, to contribute to lives that we would never otherwise touch… What a privilege, a pleasure, and an absolutely ecstatic experience!”

—Catherine Cheng (

“My connection to this Inner Circle of thinkers, creators and kindred spirits — a merry-band of continual learners — is invaluable!”

—Nicky L.

“The Inner Circle is a group of very thoughtful, bright people engaged in real discussion – not arguing “their side,” but really addressing how we interact, how we become productive in our work and personal lives, and how we need to engage and care for one another.  A highly stimulating place to ask essentially anything.  Come join us – it is a remarkable place.”

What are the Benefits To You?

Monthly COACHING calls

Struggling with a problem? Feeling stuck? Have a question for me?

We hold a live video coaching call every month on a different theme (e.g., productivity, entrepreneurship, creativity, personal development, etc.). In the calls, you get direct feedback from me and the other Inner Circle members.

Can’t make the live call? No problem. Each session is recorded and shared with the community. Once you join, you also have access to the full library of calls.

Private discussion forum

Build connections with a diverse community of smart, driven people who are reimagining the status quo. The forum is designed to accelerate your personal development by allowing you to get feedback and support from our engaged community.

You’ll find valuable strategies, shortcuts, ideas, and resources to help break through sticking points so you can make continual progress.

Our members see real world transformation as a result of their engagement with the community on our private forum and beyond.


Every week, you’ll get a short video from me (5 minutes or less) with one actionable idea that you can implement today to make giant leaps forward.

In these masterclasses, I share with you the habits, principles, and strategies that have allowed me to excel in multiple fields (including rocket science and academia), write a #1 bestselling book, and launch a successful business.

Prompts and Challenges

Every week you’ll get short, actionable prompts to help you implement the ideas you find in the Weekly Contrarian. You’ll share your victories and challenges with our inspiring community and get feedback and support.

Personal Updates


From time to time, I’ll share with you personal, behind the scenes updates. Some of these updates will include early drafts of articles and book chapters for your comments (I’ll give you public credit for your input, unless you don’t want to be acknowledged!).

In-person meetups

When we’re not in a pandemic, I spend a lot of time traveling around the globe. You’ll be notified when I’m in your neck of the woods so we can schedule a group meetup.

And much more

You’ll have early access to books, articles, courses, and events.

You’ll be the first to know when I’m hiring.

It’s natural to want to wait until “later.”

But waiting until “later” prevents us from leveling up and moving forward.

Waiting until “later” keeps us from landing our dream job or creating the next breakthrough product.

Now is better than later.
