This hike has multiple available trails. We hope to do the moderate/difficult hike, which tends to be steep in places. If you want to join and prefer a more casual hike, let us know and depending on interest, we will consider a less aggressive trail.

See you there!

Of course it isn’t really magic – it just feels like it when you organize your business horizontally instead of hierarchically (vertically). The biggest business in the world got to be that size by using a very similar paradigm. Now you too can gain this business advantage that is so effective it almost seems unfair.

Whether you are a novice just contemplating starting your own business, a one-person business wanting to expand, or an established business of any size looking to grow – and simultaneously needing to regain the kind of innovative inspiration that made the business successful early on… this is an event you won’t want to miss.

This event is also a good fit for business owners who hope to retire one day, but have found that they have become indispensable to their enterprise. To those in this situation we offer a viable solution to the problem.

Discover Reason-based Religion and Learn why real Christians don’t vote.


This meeting will explore the feasibility of a reason-based religion in contrast to religions based on faith. Persons with reason to attend include frustrated Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and others who are tired of praying or meditating for outcomes that never seem to happen. How long, for example, have most people been praying and/or wishing for world peace?

This relatively new concept will also be of considerable interest to atheists, agnostics, and humanists, who don’t require a deity in order to behave ethically; and who could benefit by having a closer relationship with a whole community of ethics-minded individuals.

Bring your friends and let’s change the world!
