What if love, itself, was whispering to us from the universe?

The 21st century will be humanity’s most challenging era. Finding your place and creating your dream life amidst the chaos is hard enough, and then there’s all these big, society-spanning problems to solve as well.

It’s okay to feel dispirited and overwhelmed; to feel conflicted, maybe even a little guilty, about wanting a better life for yourself but also wanting to make the world a better place. Can we do both at once?

I found myself in that exact situation when I hit my rock bottom in 2017, after losing my long-term relationship, my job, my sense of self, and finally, my cat. It was in my darkest moment yet that I suddenly felt like love whispered to me, helping me see a world healed from its pain and suffering, and showing me how we could get there.

After starting down this new path, my life completely turned around within two months, and has been getting better ever since. Now I’m going to share how to get the mindset that made this possible, the mindset of Love First.

Love First is the story of love, speaking to us from the ‘verse. All over the world people are creating a special kind of beauty, whether as art or business, science or faith: beauty that both helps us grow as individuals while also moving society’s needle forward. These are the whispers of love, reminding us that there is no challenge humanity has created for itself yet that we haven't also overcome—eventually.

Love First is a quest to identify these whispers so we can replicate them. It is also:

💖 A framework of principles, designed to create a culture of shared values to bridge our political, ideological, and digital divides.

💖 A personal and professional development practice that uses storytelling to lift people up around us, with us, and create a rising tide for everyone.

💖 And so much more yet to be revealed!

I have an 18-year plan laid out, involving a variety of services, products, storytelling platforms and events. I’m devoting my entire third chapter of my life to getting this story started, whatever it takes. Because here’s what getting started with Love First myself has given me already:

  • Deeper connection and relationships with the people in my life;
  • Enormous creativity and inspiration;
  • A near-total reduction in stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness;
  • Optimism and courage against the despair in our world and the bleakness of our future;
  • My dream life in every way that I’ve asked for.

What supporting this Patreon gets you

The methodology, practices, and stories of Love First will be shared freely, over time, to be available to everyone with an internet connection. All of the development that goes into it will be shared on the Patreon, with different tiers getting more input and access over its progress, as well as other benefits.

$4 tier: MVP’s (because value does not come from wealth) get access to the active development of everything Love First. The Patreon essentially serves as the raw stream, the development blog, and MVP’s get early access to all content that gets published on Medium and GoingLoveFirst.com.

$16 tier: Enthusiasts additionally get access to the research: the sources, notes, and learnings that form the foundation behind Love First. This includes a monthly book summary with overviews of highlights and practices from the best and latest personal development books, and the Love First perspectives on them. Enthusiasts also get access to the weekly Questions Box.

$64 tier: Supporters additionally get a monthly one-hour call with me, private personal development training and coaching in the Love First curriculum. Supporters also get a Producer credit on the Love First website and select future productions, as well as helping pick the Monthly Binge (a Netflix, Hulu, or HBO show).

$666 tier: Investors additionally get access to all secret notes, future plans, road map, and more. Twelve Investors together will enable full-time development on Love First.
