We are storytellers that connect like minds to ideas that can change our world. Our mission is to inspire people to achieve their dreams and make an impact doing what they love. Every piece of content we produce is with this mission in mind.

Our editorial calendar is driven by three primary pillars: inspiration, social business and eco-luxury lifestyle. We’ve interviewed top performing Olympic Athletes, multiple Grammy Winning Musicians and feature a weekly column with advice from the world’s top Social Entrepreneurs. We compliment this inspirational content approach with eco-luxury lifestyle articles ranging from the most sustainable dive resorts in the Galapagos to where to get the best farm-to-table food in Stratton, Vermont.

As cultural creatives ourselves, we value authentic experiences in pursuit of our impact goals. That’s why everything we feature in our magazine is written from direct experience and aims to serve our mission. We know that you, as a consciously aware citizen, wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks to our mission-driven approach to media, we’ve had a social reach of over 20 million people in 2017.
