WHY WE STARTED
In 2015 we were asked this question "What inspires you the most about life & living?" After thinking long & hard, we decided to quit our jobs to invest into our own dreams. We knew that we had to serve the world & reveal our true purposes.
We found inspiration through serving others, creating positive change & traveling the world. The impact of this question is continuously changing our lives.
Now we are sharing it with everyone around the world to spark action individuals to put action behind their personal quest for a World Peace Connection.
