Radical Business Summit


What if our businesses were tools for
liberation & social change?


In the world of mainstream business & marketing, profits and growth come first, people are "followers" and commodities, and speed is the name of the game.


We are sold programs and tactics designed to exploit, manipulate, and coerce people into buying our offerings. We're encouraged to "charge what we're worth", as if human beings have a price tag. The language of empire building is normalized and even celebrated (though as Pam Slim explores in her new book, "The Widest Net," empires are only ever good for the people at the very top).


The "experts" - usually rich, white, cis, thin, able-bodied folks with huge podcasts - assure us that wealth and success are on the other side of their dazzling, testimonial-laden program and rarely do we hear anything about addressing inequity, power, or tending to the state of the world.


Deep down, we know this way of doing business isn't sustainable - for ourselves, our clients, or the planet. The good news is there are long legacies of entrepreneurs & creatives who have been doing business differently.


They've shown us that we can resist capitalism's demand that we overwork ourselves and put a price tag on everything. We can center care in all that we do. We can begin enacting new ways of being in relationship with each other and the planet. But we can't do it alone.


At this summit, we will be learning and unlearning TOGETHER what it means to do business from a place of relationship and care.

It was envisioned to meet this new moment (and the next!), founded in interconnection so that each of us can find our constellation of care to better organize and support everything in our lives!

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,
