Why this group?

Cultural Creative Values aka Spiritedpreneur's see the world as grey:

You are Authenticity (your actions are consistent with what you believe and what you say)

You are a Social activist

You Love Idealism

You see Globalism and ecology (the big picture effects of our actions)

You are awake & Consciousness (feeling empathy and sympathy for others, understanding different viewpoints, valuing personal experience)

You know Personal growth is the true way.

We are simply a group of people who have discovered our own truth our own way. Each of us, independently, has made a shift away from established culture.

We are not represented as a group because we do not realize we are thinking as a unit. We do not know that we are a million voices strong.

The Rise of the Spiritedpreneur.

Visionaries and futurists have been predicting our emergence for over two decades. And in 2000, in the text, The Cultural Creative, our way of life was finally identified and labeled by a husband and wife psychology-sociology team. They studied us for thirteen years, coined the term ‘Cultural Creative’ and deemed us the leaders of the long-anticipated cultural movement.

So you see, this is why we are so important to the future of the world. We are the future because we look towards it and shape it. We don’t look behind like the traditionals or straight ahead like the moderns. And now we find that our time has come. The modern model of thinking doesn’t seem to be working out quite as well as everyone expected.

What We Need Now We need one thing – an awareness that we exist as a collective group, that ‘we’ are a part of an ‘us’.

We need to stop feeling so alone. There are millions of us sharing a common goal and dream. Once we realise this, we will begin to understand how truly powerful our collective voices are.
