HERE'S A SNEAK PEEK OF THE GOODNESS…

“When it comes to business, competition is a very old model.”

— Carol Benson

“I believe that the work begins inside. It’s an inside out process. Your business will only grow as much as you do.”

— Carol Benson

“Consciousness, from my perspective, means greater awareness and a willingness to consider different perspectives and viewpoints than my own. That is the beginning of consciousness, once you can not make it an ‘us’ and ‘them’ viewpoint.”

— Carol Benson

“Consciousness means taking it all in and looking at a whole new way of doing business that includes not only your own values, missions, and personal growth, but it includes the same of anyone who’s working with you. With your employees, partners, and clients, it’s not just about your own self-interest. In becoming conscious, you include the self-interest of others. By connecting it all together in a cooperative model, everyone grows.”

— Carol Benson
