Stowe Boyd writing today in his newsletter:
“I am ambivalent about authors making too grand a case in favor of finding meaning and purpose through our work. Note that I personally am driven to do the work I have decided to do. On the other hand, I also deeply believe that our culture – especially in the US – is far too cultish about work, and that many people would gladly work significantly less if they could afford to.”
I agree - except I don’t.
In simple terms, it’s already hard to find an income you can survive on in the world we live in … to add ‘meaning and purpose’ to the ‘requirements seems a stretch too far … under the current system.
But, what if we reinterpreted the system. What if we created a business equation that had people at the center - to business. What then would it all look like.
It’s a big topic, but I am taking it on … it’s what People First is all ABOUT.

Nothing less than putting people back into the center of ‘The Business Equation’.
People First - All Else Follows. It’s a simple rule, but not well understood - much less followed. Our goal is to explore how people have increasingly taken a back seat in society as we have allowed unfettered and unelected power to ‘corporates’.
What can people and businesses do to mitigate the downside? I choose ‘and’ because if business does not understand the importance of People First and include that thinking in their strategies, they too will be run over by the unfettered power of the ‘megacorps’.
People First lays the groundwork for people both inside and outside of business to understand how they can better work and engage to create a ‘People First World’.
