“We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”
THE FLAMING HEART CREST OF CHARD & STRIPES
We The People of Chard & Stripes revel in this truth from founding father Thomas Paine: “We have it in our power to begin the world over again.” Fellow Americans and global friends, if you want prosperity for more of us, know this:
IT’S TIME TO DO BUSINESS KINDER &
And for you to do work you love to lead the way.
The business world has ugly stories to tell, especially big food and fashion.
Stories about pushing people to the point of death and the planet to the brink.
You have stories about serving society, but they’re stuck in your soul.
And it’s painful and frustrating because you know you have much to offer.
We’re here to solve both problems.
By poking you to play and sharing ideas, tools, resources and lessons learned to help you prosper and change lives, like by changing ugly stories behind sequins and salads doing work you love.
WELCOME TO CHARD & STRIPES
We’re a “school” of prosperity making and word-of-mouth marketing platform for kind people, products and businesses in food, fashion & more.
OUR VISION is a prosperous world for all, thanks to “everyday” people waking up to their spiritual nature and innate creative power and choosing to make heaven on earth.
OUR MISSION is to spread prosperity by showing engaged citizens ways to make a great-feeling life and world, especially through the power of food and fashion.
We could do better ourselves at playing and are new-ish at doing work we love to change lives other than our own. But we think our beginner status is to your benefit:
We have fire in our bellies and are here to serve the hell outta you, because we remember how it feels to be in your shoes.
We hope you’ll join us on a journey to make and spread prosperity. Especially if you’re over 50 like we are. Aunt Mavis—Uncle Sam’s sister from another mother—will be thrilled if you do.
And in the spirit of word-of-mouth, please tell 3 people or more that we’re here. Thank you.
Jomo Kenyatta—first president of Kenya—used “HARAMBEE!” as his rallying cry,
to mean “let’s ALL band together” to build the nation!
