Start here

Stand Up Now (SUN) is a worldwide community committed to living worthwhile lives and standing up together to dream, plan, and do big things for the world.

It's a place for people of action who press forward even when the map ends.

Living well requires 3 commitments from you: 

  1. To be happy and healthy. 
  2. To be engaged in purposeful work. 
  3. To give back and make the world a better and more sustainable place. 

Through SUN, you can achieve all of these things.

If you were part of SUN, it could work and feel something like this:  

  • You would meet online or in person weekly with a professionally facilitated tight-knit Mastermind group of helpful, smart people whose only purpose in meeting is to help each other grow personally and dream, plan, and do something BIG* and worthwhile with their lives. *Note: 'big' here just means something that is bigger than you have done before. You decide for yourself what 'big' is.
  • Each quarter you’d set some goals for yourself, bounce them off your mastermind group, break them down into achievable steps, and celebrate your wins as they came through.  
  • You would learn and implement all sorts of mind, body, and spirit life hacks and slowly embed a simple but effective planning and implementation system so that you would generate more wins with less effort and time.
  • You might participate in a Study Action Circle with a small group of people where all of you systematically go though and discuss a chosen topic (e.g. a topic from a: book, a course, a blog article, etc.) and implement the relevant things for you that come out of those discussions on your own, or together.
  • When you needed a boost, felt like collaborating, or wanted gain some outside perspective and insight, you would login to SUN's virtual coworking space (or head down to an affiliated physical cowork space) to meet and work with others to keep you on track, inspired, and motivated to keep going.   
  • Throughout the year you would have a constant supply of online and live educational programs and events to choose from to keep you thinking, motivated, and sharp. 
  • You might make use of a dedicated concierge to access virtual assistant services. They would also assist you in sourcing any products, services, and expertise you may need from time to time from any other partners or members.
  • To charge your battery, you might choose to attend the SUNLive event held each year in beautiful location where you and other members from around the world come together for 3 days to learn, grow, connect, get inspired, have fun, and take action on your futures.
  • You'd access and create opportunities to give back to a world that can always use the help where you best saw a chance to make an impact.

"After finishing up at Techstars there was a noticeable void in my week, I really miss the "CEO Standup Meeting" where I got to discuss weekly pain points of the company with my peers and have the ability to ask for help. I found that sense of community and mentorship with SUN."

"The great thing about participating in the SUN mastermind was a mix of two things: 1. Hearing what other people were struggling with was comforting, eye opening and offered a good environment to share both your problems and your ideas. 2. Because of the mix of backgrounds, industries and even geographical location we were able to share those ideas with people we might never have met otherwise."
