We're a small group of people that serve a BIG purpose!
The mission is to disrupt status quo; to shake up the modern world and pave the way for future generations in order to create greater peace, more mindful humans, and harmony for all.
Whether you come to us for disruption in your personal life or seek help to disrupt your business to get to a new level of operating, we focus on helping you become conscious, mindful, and make you dig deep to discover (or rediscover) purpose.
Simply, we do the following:
Knowing the purpose without an inkling of a doubt is essential. Essential for your business and digging deep into why it operates. Also, for individuals, digging deep into why you are on this planet. Purpose-driven drives more positive energy into the world, it's as simple as that.
We adore calling our coalition as being chock full of changeologists. A changeologist is a natural disruptor. The formal term is someone who enables change. The word was initially brought to life in the book "Changeology" written by psychologist John C. Norcross, Ph.D.
"Changeology is to define, adhere to, and manifest your goals and resolutions."

"DISRUPTION BRINGS CHANGE; CHANGE BRINGS ABOUT GROWTH & AN UNCOVERING OF PURPOSE; UNDERSTANDING YOUR PURPOSE AND OPERATING FROM THAT PURPOSE CREATES FREEDOM!" ~ Natalie Viglione, Founder/CEO
PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM NATALIE VIGLIONE, FOUNDER
I know what you're wondering after reading the above. What is status quo exactly and isn't that an OK thing? The dictionary definition of status quo is simply "the state of affairs," but the reality is that it's a state of affairs that resists progress. When you aren't progressing or taking leaps to drive change, and feeling stuck in one way or another, then the fact of the matter is that status quo has you halted.
Being purpose-driven in your life and as a business owner is imperative. If your business isn't thriving, then it means that your business isn't representing your purpose so it's more than likely not doing what it's supposed to be doing in the marketplace. The fact of the matter is that status quo doesn't work in our complex world. We're asked to transition and meet challenges every day and being "alive" takes a lot more than it used to. The challenge lies in meeting those transitions with strength, courage, and understanding, while yearning to be better than yesterday. That is the formula how each of us personally can help to evolve humanity to get to a better place than we're at today. Life is a work of art that each of us is creating, so being in the status quo isn't being in a position that creates true authentic happiness or success.
I built this coalition, this group of people, to serve individuals and companies in a unique way. A coalition of people allows us to truly use the right expertise in the right spots, rather than throwing a bunch of people at you that add no value.
We're here to help people WAKE UP! I know that it's not a small feat, but this is my purpose! I've taken what I've learned in climbing, striving, and reaching amazing heights over the past 15 years in the corporate world and my life (oh, don't worry, plenty of dark days in there, too), and made a decision a couple of years ago to let my purpose live through me and became an entrepreneur. I bring this to you so that I can activate my life and other's lives in more unique ways. I feel alive now in a way that brings tears of joy to my eyes, and I feel it in the fabric of my being!
IN BUSINESS: When things don't feel like it's going the right way, or the company is at a major plateau, then something needs to shift. Say you're launching a new business or a new product and need to get "out there" and realize you're not quite attracting the right people, something is not right. Or, you've been around, and now you're trying to reach and attain new business goals and can't quite seem to get there. It takes disrupting what you've been doing to reach new heights. It requires a new strategy, a new way of thinking, and digging deep into what it'll take as it's never one thing. We help you become mindful, drive your business' purpose through everything you do, and give you the guidance and support necessary to get sh*t done!
IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE AND YOUR CAREER: If you don't own a business, you still own your life; you're the artist and creator of your own life, so technically you're an "entrepreneur" in that design! Do you keep hitting barriers and you're sick and tired of feeling like you're just not getting where you need to go? Do bad things keep "happening" and you don't know why? You're thinking a lot about what you need to do, but not doing anything? It takes disruption of your current habits to make the changes necessary to move beyond your status quo (that current state of affairs you're stuck in). We use our Disrupt Now ethos and mindset and apply this knowledge to help you become more accountable and take action in the right direction, and uncover or rediscover your purpose!
The cost of staying in the status quo zone? You never reach that future place you want to be. You have a dream, but you'll never achieve that vision. You have goals, but you'll keep missing them. You have a to-do list, but never crossing off enough. We will provide the ideas, concepts, tactics and tools to get your life there, your career there, your business there, and we will make it stick!
We look forward to meeting to go on a journey, and we're a coalition of professionals (of changeologists) waiting to help you kickass!
In Love & Light,
~ Natalie Viglione, Founder
