The Founders Journal 

Turning Mindfulness into Meaningful Insights

Capture your startup journey. The Founder’s Journal lets you visualize your progress, stay focused on the positive, and track just how much you are growing.

  •  Intention: Work with more purpose and direction
  •  Insight: Discover how you work and where to improve
  •  Inspiration: Wake up more creative every day

One of the best (and cheapest) investments you’ll ever make in yourself. Before you know it you’ll have months of data to see how your methodology and technique has changed during your journey as an innovator.
