Why You’re Really Here

Why are you here? No, I mean why are you really here?

There are two ways you could take this question. The first is, “Why have you come back to check out this blog again? What are you hoping you’ll get out of it?” The second is, “Why are you here in the world? What you want your life to be for?” I think those two questions are related. Not because you’re here on Earth to watch my video blog, but because you’re here on this blog hoping it will somehow help you along the path to becoming who you’re here to become in this lifetime. And maybe it will.

You’re seeking support as you walk down your life path, and you’ve come to this blog because it’s a source of support.  If you’re here for that kind of support, 10 minutes of video is a good start, but 10 weekends of immersive, experiential, interactive learning in a community of people like you with goals like yours will get you a lot further down your path at an incredibly accelerated rate.

That’s why I’ve spent the last 20 years engineering Interchange.  Interchange is why I’m really here. Interchange’s year-long training is designed to be an optimal learning environment and growth incubator for people like you.  If you’ve come to this blog because the kinds of ideas we play with here speak to you, please consider coming and spending the year hanging out with me and a community of people like us, helping each other down the path.

We’ll be back to sending you out our normal video blogs next week, but I wanted to let you know that we have just 9 spots left in this year’s class and I don’t expect them to last long (the training sells out every year).  If you’d like to know more, tonight, Monday, October 8th is our FINAL introductory evening before the training begins on 10/13. Come join us!
