I was jobless, so I was one of the statistics. I started looking for what I could do to make the most out of this situation. That led me to the idea for MindGlo.

When Ken Lynch found himself out of a job in Hoboken, New Jersey and driving a full U-Haul back to his native Portland, he had plenty of time to think. "I was jobless, so I was one of the statistics. I started looking for what I could do to make the most out of this situation. That led me to the idea for MindGlo."
MindGlo, a life-long learning/self-enrichment company, holds its Grand Opening September 14th (RSVP). Its first ever class begins September 1st.
MindGlo was inspired by The Learning Exchange in Sacramento. Lynch says, once back in Portland, he wanted to find a non-traditional program where he could learn to play the guitar and to speak Spanish. Shocked to find nothing like The Learning Exchange in Portland, he launched the life-long learning/self-enrichment company himself.
Nearly forty instructors are offering 64 classes, most to be held at Whole Foods Market on NE Fremont. There are classes like Wine on a Dime: Drinking Your Way through the Recession, unusual movement classes like Sacred Sass, and a class devised to handle the stress, Transform Your Life - One Breath at a Time.
The affordable classes can reignite a childhood interest like hula hooping, help you figure out how to launch your own business, or just make you feel better. Or, Lynch says, attending the classes "may reveal something inside you, like it did for me. There was something that was with me all my life that I didn't see, and through this experience of being unemployed, I found what I'd been looking for for twenty years."
Ken Lynch's inspiring story about MindGlo - and information about the dozens of affordable classes -- can invigorate the thousands who find themselves jobless. To find out more about the MindGlo story and the classes visit Portland Classes.
Lynch says "Portland can be gray sometimes, so MindGlo brings a little sunshine into Portland."
