Live for Something Bigger than Yourself

" If you still want to pause, and you still cannot motivate yourself, that means your 'why' or your life mission or your life purpose is not big enough; it's not important enough, to you. You need to dig deeper because when the 'why' is so big, the 'how' becomes small."

Mentee Testimonies


My meeting with my Menos mentor was very inspiring and wonderful. He mentioned things about his job, of which I am interested in, and also little subtle values and traits that you need to have in order to succeed in the working world. He was extremely nice and surprisingly never seemed to talk to me in a belittling way despite his accomplished stature. I left that meeting with a whole new perspective on life and what I have to do in order to fulfill the goals I want to achieve. Menos and my mentor have enabled me to do that and I can’t stress my appreciation for them enough.

I can't thank Menos enough for letting me be a part of family. Connected to experienced people definitely gives me useful insight. I met my mentor Mr.Nagaria first time in Tokyo. It was interesting as I was reaching him out for a Menos session, surprisingly he mentioned to me that he was actually in Tokyo for business purposes. Then we decided to meet up for a breakfast. Such a humble gentleman, as he is willing to spare some of his time despite his busy schedule.

Keep inspiring, Menos! Much love from Tokyo.

For those Menos family planning to come to Tokyo, let me know. Let's meet up!

Beberapa bulan lalu saya mendaftarkan diri untuk mengikuti program Menos yang diusung oleh para alumni U.C Berkeley, bersyukur dapat masuk 40 orang yang diterima menjadi mentee dari seluruh Indonesia. Pada program tersebut banyak sekali mentor yang sangat kompeten, mulai dari founder blitz megaplex, director lippo group, president director bank BTPN, director summarecon, president blue bird group, dan banyak mentor lainnya. Hingga akhirnya saya memilih Bpk. Novistiar selaku CEO HarukaEDU sebagai mentor, banyak sekali insight yang menarik setelah ngobrol lama dengan beliau.

Selain itu melalui program ini saya dapat dikoneksikan dengan para mentor lainnya yang merupakan orang2 hebat.

Semoga dengan ada nya mentor yang memberikan arahan secara eksklusif ini dapat membuat perjalanan @buildme.id bisa menjadi lebih baik dan maju untuk kedepannya.

Firman on Novistiar Rustandi

We talked a lot of his life, his works, and the reasons for his living.

He is a very wholesome person. And someone who is very wise, but very modern in his thinking. Especially considering his age, that is something very amazing to me.

I feel really really grateful when I got a chance to meet Mr.Jerry. I think 3 words that describe Mr.Jerry are smart, inspiring, and humble. He listened to all my stories as if I was his business partner. Most of all, he gave me suggestions and encouragements that I need.

Renata on Jerry Ng

I am so grateful to have gotten the chance to get to know Tante Noni on such an intimate level. She’s a very knowledgeable and experienced woman and I was able to learn so much about her and her journey. Through our conversations, I was able to gain insight into her life and learned that we both were very similar. She gave me a lot of great advice that I was able to directly apply to my own life (mindmapping, small adjustments to improve my overall productivity and happiness, etc) and I can’t help but feel gratitude reflecting on how she took time out of her busy days to speak to me. I could tell that she genuinely cared about my own personal and professional development and wanted to do as much as she could to help me in my own endeavors.

Gaby on Noni Purnomo

I feel grateful for the opportunity to meet Jefrey Joe, a very honest and straightforward person who enjoys helping others. He was kind enough to take the time to give me fundamental feedback about my personal development and what I could improve on in my business. What i enjoyed most was the level of candor that Jefrey has in his feedback, which helps me reflect hard about underlying problems and how I can continue to develop. It makes every meeting with him very fruitful.

Edward on Jefrey Joe

Feeling so grateful and thankful to Menos for letting me having this wonderful opportunity to talk directly through ghangouts with Erica Hanson. She is such an open minded, energetic and passionate individual. Erica helps me to open my mind and to not fear for facing problem by telling me that her fav quotes is “ every problem is a gift, and without problem we would not grow”! I can’t wait to have the next mentoring session with her again.
