Today saw the launch of a group of individuals looking to create a new way of working together, creating life, and enjoying community and family. Entrepreneurs tired of compromising their values in the corporate realm, having a higher understanding of their role within society and humanity.
I have been asked quite a few times over the past year and half about starting something along these lines. Each attempt fell short, partly due to my own history requiring something clever and professional to be created, rather than something authentic and organic. Finally, after many false starts, recent connections revealed the gift of authenticity and inspiration that spills from my lips in a given moment when people are sincere in their desire to grow and learn. Seeing this more clearly paved the way for today's event to launch itself as a handful of us came together to co-create the vision that will unfold in the coming months.
After watching a documentary on Walmart I decided I would never shop there again. Why you ask?
Walmart may not be a socially responsible company. If you shop there you could be contributing to a company which has closed almost every store which has tried to unionize, it treats its suppliers suspiciously.....I'll explain in a bit, and says its a good company by reducing prices everyday.
