Find YOUR People is a self-guided online course designed to help make deep and meaningful friends as an adult.
"Through this program, I realized that yes I do have “my” people around me - I just need to do the work as all relationships require effort. So no I am putting energy and love into the connections that are helping me be a better version of myself."AMY ANGELILLI
"I learned how to let go of the friendships that didn't serve me anymore. Without this course I would continue to struggle in my relationships and feel exhausted with my limited energy and time as an introvert."ASANDA CHEUNG
"This course gave me a framework to better find my people AND then communicate with them in a productive way. I recommend it to whose feeling isolated and willing to do the inner and outer work needed to find their community."KEVIN SINGH
"Jan's nickname is Mr. Connect for a reason... he is kind, empathetic, and passionate about bringing the best out of everyone who crosses his path. His techniques and exercises blew my expectations out of the water."TED KILLIN
Making REAL friends
as adults seems hard
When I first arrived in Toronto in 2008 I only knew one person!
And little did I expect back then that over the next few years I will make Toronto my new home.
I think anybody who has moved to a new place knows that meeting new people and making REAL friendships is not easy.
At one point I literally thought something must be wrong with me!
I kept blaming it on:
- Maybe I’m just too old to make friends (yet I was in my early 20ies)
- Canadians are just nice on the surface – they don’t want to make new friends (turns out they craved connection as much as I did)
- I work from home – so I don’t socialize enough (I was not the only one)
So I started joining groups, meetups, networking events and at one point I was attending events every single day of the week – and I just walked away with a stack of business cards and NO REAL CONNECTIONS.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
- “I don’t know where to meet like-minded people”
- “When I talk to people, I can’t seem to get beyond meaningless small talk”
- “Even if I meet someone, I don’t know how to turn this acquaintance into a friend”
- “I often feel isolated, disconnected and alone – even though I am surrounded by people”
- “My friends just don’t get me. I feel like I have to change who I am to fit in”
THEN IT'S TIME TO FIND YOUR PEOPLE
It took me 8 years to figure out the secret to creating deep, meaningful relationships and now want to support anyone who is struggling with the same challenge.
Now I can say that I have found “my people” – an amazing community of people that I can be completely myself around. Friends that support me, that don’t judge me, that just “get me” and make me feel energized and fulfilled when I am around them.
And for the last few years I’ve been hosting hundreds of dinners, workshops and other experiences to help people get beyond small talk, connect meaningfully and make new friends since then.
And now I put all my lessons and strategies into this online course, so you don’t have to wait 8 years like I did.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT WILL THE PROGRAM DEMAND OF ME?
For the self-guided online course I suggest to dedicate 1 hour per week for 6 -8 weeks to watch the content, do the exercises in the workbook and then go and apply the lessons at social events.
In total there are over 30 videos adding up to about 2.5 hours of video content, so although I wouldn’t recommend it, you could easily binge-watch it in an afternoon.
HOW WILL I ACCESS THE CONTENT?
All of the content will be delivered through Mighty Networks (the online course and community platform) and allows you to watch the videos on your laptop on your own time. They even have a mobile app if you’d like to take the course on the go.
