The Tracking Wonder Community

We are business artists. And so are you.

Tracking Wonder is a movement for mission-driven professionals, entrepreneurs & creatives committed to doing business from a place of integrity and wonder.

We’re entrepreneurs, creatives, and change-makers who call ourselves Business Artists.

Business Artists create like artists and earn like entrepreneurs.

Artists have the imagination, story intelligence, and maker’s sensibility to bring mind-changing delight to their audiences. Entrepreneurs have the experimental mindset, problem-solving attitude, and collaborative spirit to make ideas stick, spread, and gain a return.

Artistic sensibility + Entrepreneurial savvy = Business Artist

WHY WE NEED COMMUNITY

It’s difficult to get perspective on your vision for a better future and a better business when you’re spinning in your own cognitive cog. When we speak up, we realize we’re not alone and we meet new collaborators.

We discover that our idea might ripple with impact.

It all boils down to one truth: Do It Together beats Do It Yourself.

Our motto: #DITbeatsDIY.

WHY WE QUEST

I grew up a lone wolf. Sure, I had a few good mentors, but I got used to to bucking the system, figuring things out on my own, and doing things my way.

But after a while the DIY method of showing up every day grew old.

I became isolated and frustrated. And my visions – for myself, my family, my business, my creative projects, and my greater vision for part of the world – were not being fully realized.

I wasn’t alone. Entrepreneurs, creatives with big ideas and ideals, and leaders of all stripes are isolated.

They have great ideas. They have big visions. But they don’t have the inspiration, tools, perspective, and support to enact those visions. They don’t have each other.

In December 2014 I launched a free online program called Quest 2015. Each year since then I have invited visionaries such as Seth Godin, Peabody-award winner Krista Tippet, Dacher Keltner of The Greater Good Science Center at Berkeley, Jason Silva of National Geographic TV, and serial entrepreneur and Good Life Project founder Jonathan Fields to inspire others to imagine their best possible year. People showed up from all around the world to participate.

And a beautiful thing happened: People in our Quest community began to find intelligent, thoughtful, and supportive group of new friends and collaborators.

Since then literally hundreds of collaborations have sprung up – collaborations we call #BusinessArtistAlliances. Our community members have found each other geographically and meet up frequently to compare notes and join efforts. 10 Ambassadors across 3 countries now lead Business Artist Meetups.

It’s a beautiful thing, exponential impact.

I invite you to defy the default of isolation and join us.

Thanks for running with me,
