About the Project

We want to be successful, but success isn’t enough.

We want a fulfilling and rewarding career without sacrificing a full and vital life. We want the corner office while still caring for our health, our friends and family and staying true to what is important to us.

We want meaningful success.

It’s no easy feat.

You’ll see plenty of people with career success who are burnt out, lonely, alcoholic, narcissistic, or miserable. It seems like the higher you go, the greater the sacrifice.

But there’s a better way.

We’re travelling the world, searching for people who live vibrant, meaningful lives and achieve great things in their career and we’re asking them how they do it.

We are searching for people who:

  • Achieved success in their career under their own steam

  • Have a great sense of purpose and vitality in their work

  • Actively want to benefit others through their actions

  • Maintain healthy relationships with others

  • Care for their own psychological and physical well-being

We want to discover how these inspiring people achieved their meaningful success, what they learned along the way and what they would do differently if they could do it all again.

What we’ve found has been both astonishing and helpful to us, and we’d like to share it with you.
