  • Making a Life

    All choices (including inaction) have consequences. We choose to run our businesses and organisations according to a set of Principles that make them more people friendly, resilient to recessions, and more. In a nutshell: we don't merely make a living, we make a life.

    Our mentors assist people with business strategy, our members also engage in co-mentoring. Sharing is a benefit, not a risk.
