Think of someone you admire. Who you wish you could be. Were they excited about what they were doing? Could you see the spark in their eyes? The passion on their face? Were the people around them beginning to light up as well? Whether they were talking about changing the world or reciting the phone book, it didn’t matter. Whatever the topic, you were hooked. Why? Because they were hooked! They loved it so much, they just had to share it with the world.
What if you could find what it was that lit your fire? If you could wake up in the morning and be excited about the day to come. What if you could build your life around what you love?
Now, imagine doing that alongside people just like that person you first described. Others who are already living that life and plenty who are figuring out how to get there. People who understand the fear and doubt that accompanies the journey to a different kind of success. And who can give you a bit of their spark when it’s difficult to find your own.
This is exactly the community we are developing and we would love for you to join us. In 2010 a group of us started meeting up for dinner and drinks, soon to discover a common desire to change our world and the world around us. Each of us had our own ideas but they all had three things in common, a passion to do things differently, the belief that anyone can, and the desire to do it together.
So, if making the impossible possible makes you so excited that you inadvertently smile but at the same time you feel so terrified that you want to run from the room, then you are in the right place. It’s a roller coaster of a journey…one that is easier to ride together.
We love stories! There’s some fabulous people who have really got to the bottom of our values, and tell amazing stories that make the point. Make a cuppa, make yourself comfortable, and prepare to be transported.

Aspire to being a “one-buttock company” as described by Benjamin Zander (from around 1 minute 15 through 4 minutes) and depend for your power on your ability to make other people powerful and make their eyes shiny (stay the course and watch to the end):
Make yourself vulnerable by asking, like Amanda Palmer:
