“Our whole, underlying mission is helping people be able to create businesses doing what they love, being of service, that sustains their life.”
“Community is the heart of what we do.”
“There are so many ups and downs that we’re faced with and it’s not necessarily a smooth path where we’re handed a lot of stuff, but we’ve gotta go out and seek things.”
Noé and Harmony shared this advice to prioritize your time to steer your life in a new direction:
1) Connect with your body and take stock of the time available to you and think about what you can realistically do in that time to move your vision forward.
2) Repurpose some of your existing habits by doing things you already like to do, such as going out to lunch with a friend, but go with someone who works for themselves and will automatically have you thinking about things in a different way.
