We are already worthy.

We deserve work that is both fulfilling and pays well, without toxicity and trauma. We deserve time with our families, flexible schedules, and rest.

Welcome to our community for leaders connecting to our already existing power so that we can remake the world through our work – whether that be for someone else or our own creations.

We help those who are looking to get a seat at the table or build their own in a way that matches their values so that they can use their powerful voices for good while also living lives that they love. As James Baldwin said, we don’t dream of labor. Our values are truth, meaning, wonder, potential, compassion, candor, curiosity, connectedness, inclusion, collaboration, creativity, and justice. We typically work with 4 types of folks: people pivoting into new careers, job seekers, leaders, and business builders.

Sound interesting? We’d love for you to join us.

What real members

are saying about the community

This platform has given me a place to connect with like minded people. I’ve been able to ask questions, solicit advice, connect to resources and support, share ideas, and find out about new books, films, companies, organizations, movements, and the like. Knowing that anyone who posts or responds to my posts shares the same values is everything to me– I never have to worry if I’m going to be shamed or shut down, and I always know that I’ve got thousands of amazing people to hype me when needed!
