About me

I am passionate to inspire and empower people to imagineer a better world; to identify and bring about a preferred society/economy where people are operating from the foundational principles of excellence, integrity, honesty, loyalty, where there is both love, justice, abundance of resources (partly as we understand that it is through simplicity that we become content).  My philosophy is based on vision, stewardship and character and intimacy / vulnerability.


Prosperity (or success) to me is love, peace, joy, hope for the future, loyal friends, close family, vibrant health and being financial free to do what makes your heart sing (whether it is paid or voluntary).
