There is a moment when your vision is set, the plan is created, the strategy is clear and it's time to take action.

As we expand to big dreams and new ideas, there is an inevitable contraction. I've noticed the place where it happens most often is during the actual doing of the thing.

There was a seed planted in me in late 2020 that is starting to bear fruits.
After everything we went through last year - I felt a desperate need to reimagine the way I did business. Inspired by the activists and scholars I had been studying reimagining a new world - I began wondering if there was a way to reimagine doing business.
