A Community for navigating life.

Most of us are constantly trying to find our way in work or life, but the map keeps changing. Life In This Future is a guide for a new map: a shared conversation where we harness the strength of community to find our path in the ever-shifting landscape of modern humanity. It's for individuals, groups, businesses, organizations, and really anyone who has honest questions about what we're doing here.

Sometimes the answer is simply a pep talk, and sometimes it's a long-term dialogue. Maybe there's an expert with the insight you're looking for. You might need to gather in a room with a dozen other people who are asking the same questions. Occasionally, it's time to re-evaluate your personal identity or your brand/business. It usually involves other people, and that's where we thrive.

What do you need right now? How can we help? Email us.

LITF will feature various written content, along with a podcast and live events. We're available to consult or partner with you to determine your next steps, because sometimes that's the hardest thing to do.

I really hope you can be part of the conversation.

A former special education teacher and communications manager, I currently spend my time as a husband (to Sarah), dad (to sons Parker & Noah), and entrepreneur (formerly of Workshop Chicago). Living in Chicago’s historic Humboldt Park neighborhood, I also travel with my family in a recently-restored 1963 Shasta camper. Needless to say, I enjoy old things and new adventures.
