Solid Foundations

For so much of my life, I was a single mother, self-employed.

My foundations – support networks, financial security, home security, collaborative networks – felt tenuous. 

I lived, as so many people do, in precarity.

This is not all bad. I know how to make money do magic things to stretch seemingly impossible chasms. I know thriftiness. I know how to ask for help. I know how to be incredibly resourceful.

All of these skills are valuable, and so often ignored against the more flamboyant skills that get people promoted.

Now that I have solid foundations – a partner in every sense of the word partner – trust, play, collaboration, threshing ideas, steady when I am flakey – and a sense of home and financial security I have not known – I recognise just how much solid foundations enable increased creativity and the capacity to be of greater service.

For the last few years, I have focused on building a solid foundation in my business. Syntropic World is becoming the equivalent in business of a cathedral in architecture, and the focus on the foundations will allow the cathedral, when it emerges from the ground, to be both beautiful and last a long time, able to be enjoyed and celebrated by many for a long time.

Building solid foundations with intention is a worthy act.
