Co-creating communities of greater vitality and humanity.
People in their element.
These images, ideas and quotes represent who we are, our values and what we stand for. Oh, and in case it's not obvious: we love quotes :).
"If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together." — African Proverb.
We believe in community. We believe that diversity makes us better. We believe in creating opportunity and tapping into the potential of others.
Go with purpose
“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.” — Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia)
We believe it is more fun when you have a bigger game to play. By that we mean connecting to a meaningful mission of why you are on the journey. We want to feel that energy that comes from an idea that gets you out of bed in the morning.
"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark." — Michelangelo
We want to think more without borders or boundaries, but to do this we worry about the risk of being "world changing" or "too big." Going big could mean trying something that might scare you a bit or going after something meaningful to you.
"Think of wild versus tame... wolf versus dog... the very forces that tamed wolves and made them dogs tamed humans." — John Ratey (author of a book called "Go Wild")
Wild means that we were all "born to move with grace, born to embrace novelty and variety, born to crave wide open spaces, and above all, born to love." Our world has too many structures that cause us to sit and keep us from moving. Get outside, be wild, and get wide open. Simply put, be like a 5 year old. :-)
"I'm not the next Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps. I'm the first Simone Biles." — Simone Biles
When we say "go first," we mean be willing to stand out. Challenge conventional wisdom. Say what you mean and be honest. Will your idea move society forward and cause others to follow?
Go get it
"Don't wait for your ship to come in... swim out to it." — Cathy Hopkins
We like to hustle and make stuff happen. We care about what we do. We show up when it matters.
"If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you've launched too late." — Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn Founder)
When in doubt, just try it. Experiment. Move forward even if it is not perfect.
