Is this a pivot year for new bearings and bold plans?
We provide a framework to help you explore, define, and execute on your interprize, on your vision of the truly engaged life. We help guide interpreneurs who are energized, thinking creatively, and piloting their own futures. Are your ready to pursue your interprize?
Did you wake this morning abuzz with anticipation for the day ahead? Are you creating something meaningful that fills you with deep personal satisfaction, that defines you and your unique abilities? Isn’t this important?
Will there be a better time than today to launch your interprize?
Commitment to a grand ambition demands most of our time and all of our energy. Without physical and emotional balance we quickly exhaust and lose our bearings.
A healthy diet for the body and soul, through kitchen confidence, mindfulness, online decoupling, yoga – or whatever you decide – is key to an interprize that thrives and endures, and key to the Interprize Accelerator program.
Our Interprize Accelerator program helps you achieve your grand ambition while maintaining balance.
Each of us is better positioned to achieve 1 thing – at least – than anyone else on this planet. It is simply a combination of our unique genetic abilities gifted at birth plus those distinctive skills, experiences, and connections acquired through life.
Power those assets with your deepest passion and you can set the world ablaze.
Are you ready to set the world ablaze?
Interpreneurial Success Series
Meet Peg Conley
Peg has been an artist all her life, but took a long detour into the working world where she found professional success and was able to raise a happy family. Art became the thing she did mostly on vacations and weekends. But something gnawed at Peg, a nagging feeling that life might hold something more meaningful.
Despite a great deal of fear, Peg dropped her big job, big house, and big life and moved to San Francisco to create her interprize: a business based on her artisan stationery. From a handful of hand-painted cards, calendars, and posters, her company Words and Watercolors was born and has been inspiring people, winning awards, and raking in the sales ever since. Peg’s intention with her work is to inspire and her art and writing all speak to life’s great truths and those aha moments.
“The Interprize program is built on years of experience and touches on all facets of passion, balance, purpose, and structure required in the pursuit of an ambitious and meaningful interprize.” – Peg Conley
Meet John Tracy
John is the consummate tinkerer with a curious mind. He’s a PhD physicist by trade and made his core-career mark in the tech industry, followed by acclaim in the wine industry, and now making a foray into the world of electric cars.
John was the founder and CEO of a highly successful startup called Opto Power in Tucson that made semiconductor lasers. He sold his ownership position during the boom years of the tech bubble and with his wife Deborah sought out real change, buying a large rural property in Sonoma County, the celebrated wine-making region north of San Francisco. The estate had been a working vineyard so naturally he thought, “why not start a winery?”, and Owl Ridge was born. The wall in the Owl Ridge meeting room is adorned with dozens of award ribbons and trophies, a testament to John’s ability to get the brand operational and competitive.
John’s most recent interprize is once again in a radically different sector, designing charging stations for all-electric vehicles like the Tesla model S and Nissan Leaf. He’s a true interpreneur who never stops asking “why not?” and pursuing projects of real passion and deep personal meaning.
