What are your values?
Simplicity — Get more out of life by simplifying decision-making with a laser focus on what matters most and elimination of the inconsequential.
Beauty — Pursue good design in everywhere we go, everything we do and everything we own. Good Design that is heart-centered is one of the most powerful ways to influence. Also seek the beautiful in all things.
Creativity — Have an open-minded and progressive spirit. Just like nature is always experimenting and evolving so should we. Be open to fun and laughter and new ways of thinking and being.
Strategy — Be thoughtful and rationale about how we navigate life. Seek wisdom from principles and philosophies (such as Stoicism) that help us minimize hardship while maximizing life's pleasures (within moderation). Do what we want to do so long as we do no harm.
We also draw inspiration and direction from the following philosophies:
- Epicureanism — pursuit of simple pleasures
- Minimalism — use of simple strategies to streamline life and be intentional
- Stoicism — rational thoughts and control of destructive emotions
- Aestheticism — the study and appreciation of beauty and design
- Progressivism — imagination and development of ideas that improve society
- Relativism — truth is contextual and subjective not absolute
What is your purpose?
Our purpose is to use the aforementioned values and philosophies to help like-minded individuals thrive by designing their life and living on their own terms.
There are many ways we can pursue our purpose. As of right now we're focused on inspiring, empowering and supporting thinkers, creators and entrepreneurs who have ideas, skills, and talents to contribute to the world.
What do you mean by freedom, fulfillment and fortune?
A "balanced" life contains all three. It gives you the ability to design your life and live on your own terms.
It gives you a sense of purpose and a feeling that you and your work matters (i.e. that you are living a life of consequence).
But it also helps you build wealth because a person who struggles financially for too long will not feel free or fulfilled.
Of course there will always be ups and downs and moments when things are out of balance. Our goal is to provide support when that inevitably happens.
