I'm Curious

Hi, I'm Nicola, co-founder and creator...

... and connection is my passion, my obsession.

I’ve been searching for it my entire life, ever since I was a little girl. But I had the hardest time finding it. In fact, I spent a good portion of my life being completely disconnected from myself, from who I truly was and what I needed.

For years I did everything that I thought I should be doing, what others thought I should be doing, to the point that I forgot who I was. Until the moment my body, my heart, and my soul said, “enough is enough” and disconnected me completely.

Hi, I'm Peter, co-founder and creator...

... and my goal is to help you answer a single question: Is it possible to live a meaningful, purpose-driven life AND have a successful career?

This is the exact question I asked myself after surviving a massive heart-attack while sitting at a red light ten years ago. 

It was at that red light, with my survival spinning in the air like a coin toss, that I decided, not with my mind, but with my entire body, with every ounce of my being, that I was going to live. Notice that I didn’t say survive, no.

My mind and my body and my failing heart all said, “I want to live, to fully experience being ALIVE.”

Since that moment I've dedicated my life - literally every bit of time, money, and resources I've had over the past decade to figuring this out.
