What does philosophy have to do with marketing products, inventing, creating or leading companies or nations? Everything!
Who we are and what we do is based on a complex set of assumptions and beliefs, value systems, principles and logic.
This is called philosophy.
My philosophy is forged from five careers spanning five continents. It is a philosophy that I have developed for a new 21st Century world that is interdependent and interconnected and facing great challenges. The many challenges we face are a convergence of several major trends including, east and west, energy and warming, capitalism and socialism, and of course science and faith. This philosophy is a simplification of many beliefs and values, summarized in what I have attempted to be a combination of universally accepted beliefs.
I believe that articulating a vision is important. A vision pulls us to a future state as opposed to fear that holds us back. My vision is that before I die, I will have helped millions of people live a more satisfied and successful life by providing premier informational, educational and entertaining products and services that promote human development at four levels, personal, social, professional and global.
To accomplish this, I will help create 50,000 Essence Clubs in one hundred countries using this community site. We will provide stimulating info-edutainment offerings – radio, games, articles, seminars, self help profiling, coaching and professional services - through a network of individuals and companies of like mind and spirit who expand the offerings through a global exchange of essence, the Essence Exchange Network. We will also use this site to promote "Crusades and Crusaders". See FAQ for more details.
