What if you had the code to program your own matrix?


A matrix coded for resilient living.


And you could write your program from anywhere?

Apartment     Backyard     Homestead


Using your past experience to your advantage.

Corporate     Industrial     Service


To create the life you want.

Freedom     Resiliency     Community

The path to true freedom and resiliency starts with our basic needs – food, water, shelter & security. 


It then expands to freedom of time, money and location.


Some start with a water filter in an apartment. 


Some start with no experience growing food or running a business. 


Some start with a lack of confidence and belief that you can actually create the version of reality that you choose.


I was all of those people, living in an apartment, working under florescent lights – building someone else’s dream.


Then I decided to plot my way out, and began to code my own program.  


A few years later I have a homestead, a thriving business and ultimate time freedom from learning to live and act resiliently. 


Using the same principals that helped many escape the matrix, along with the learning from others I’ve worked with along the way, we will plan your way out too.


If you’re serious about unplugging from the matrix by reprogramming your mind to live for resiliency over convenience, and to create the opportunity for ultimate freedom through value creation with a homestead as the foundation, then send us a note to learn more about ‘The Resiliency Matrix’.

A Small Farmers Opportunity During the Lockdown

When I saw glimpses of the measures they were taking in Wuhan, China, I knew to keep a close eye on the developing situation. When lockdowns occur, local economies are affected immediately, and soon after, the whole global supply chain.    The US had the fortune...

Why Community Gardens Fail

Community gardens are started with the best of intentions - to get people in the community working together and to provide healthy food access to places where there usually is none.  The issue of food deserts is a real one in many parts of the country and addressing...

Opportunity For All in Creating the Hyperlocal Future

The world is changing exponentially, but humans seeking out convenience, connection, or a good deal seems timeless. So when we think about what the future holds, and where we might place a new business idea within it, at least we can take comfort that the known variables are the core human desires which apply to all of us, no matter your age, race, nationality, or occupation.

The Future of Food is in Our Hands

We are free to create the life that we want. The power is in our hands, under our control. It always has been, and for the foreseeable future, it still will be.
