Our Guidelines and Principles


Welcome to the third space community.  This is a conscious business community where people come together to share, contribute, and collaborate from the heart.  What we value is storytelling.  We are in the midst of a telling a new story.  The story of conscious business. 

Our Responsibility to One Another

In the third space community, honor and respect are key to how we work together.  As we cultivate right relationship with one another, we learn to work from the inside out as our thoughts, words, and action aim at being spoken from the heart.   We appreciate each others quality, gifts and contribution while ensuring that these are aligned with a shared and holistic vision.

Our Agreements As We Move Forward Together

The purpose of these agreements is to help each of us to participate in a more holistic way and in the interest of all:

The Four Agreements
By Don Miguel Ruiz

      1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
      2. Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
      3. Don’t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want.  Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
      4. Always Do Your Best: Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self judgement, self-abuse, and regret.

Our Commitment to You

We will work together as Community to grow the story of Conscious Business.

Privacy Agreement

We request that we each do our part to keep our sharing spaces private and respectful.  When something is shared in a private Facebook group, live call, or webinar,  keep personal information among the participants and refrain from sharing it outside of our community.

If you share a story that you don’t want shared in any form, even anonymized, then make a request of the group not to share.   If you are fine with a story to be shared with your name attached, then let others know.

Our default agreement is that it is ok to share things in anonymized form without permission. Any exceptions (i.e. “Do not share at all” or “no need to anonymize”) need to be stated explicitly.  Even when they are not, we will trust each other to exercise care and discretion.
