Standing For Accountability

It seems we are being challenged at this very moment to stand for what we know is true and right. Whether we are being called to empower ourselves as we face political bullies, companies that abuse their power, and/or other entities that prey on our natural weaknesses, this is a time of great transformation and opportunity. It is a time for us to stand and to use our voices. In my own world, I've been challenged over and over in the past weeks by broken systems that attempt to dehumanize ...

Does Your Value Have a Limit?

Can you really know your value? Is it a fixed thing? Is it of value to quantify your worth? These questions intrigue my mind. To explore this curiosity, I developed a (business) practice of not setting prices. In this system of pricing, I place no limit on the value of my offerings, and instead I trust and guide my customers to fairly determine the value of what they're receiving, and the price they pay for it. In not setting a price on the value of my service, I’ve come to ...
