It’s not that common that you want an 8 hour audio book to be another 8 hours, but that is definitely the case with @simonsinek new book; at least in my opinion. High-res

Psyched to have our application in the mix with @Rock_Health - We had a whole 16 min to spare before the midnight deadline :) High-res

Had to #regram this. @paperkary was nice enough to bring some @startonebyone samples into @studiomates The home of many people and companies at the top of my admire/respect/enjoy list :) High-res

A vision and post that has me nodding my head excessively in agreement :)

The New Holstee
We have come a long way on our mission to encourage mindful living. Our friends send us stories when they bump into the Manifesto in far corners of the globe: from remote beaches in Haiti to cafes in Hong Kong. Additionally, we are humbled every day by the incredible stories our community shares on MyLife.
While we are incredibly grateful for the ways in which Holstee has been received, we have spent a good amount of time thinking about what’s next. We have thousands of ideas we’d like to work on. They are all very different, from creating a sustainable home goods line to starting the Holstee cafe or producing a mindful phone. And in good Holstee fashion, we want to embrace them all.
But in order for us to succeed as a startup, we need to be focused. That’s why we can’t do all of these ideas right now, but rather work on one after the other. We envision Holstee will become a collection of startups, offering many different things. One thing that will remain consistent is that everything under the Holstee umbrella will have a common goal: every service or product will exist to encourage mindful living. 
Our big goal is to positively influence 1 billion people on this planet over the next 10 years. The Manifesto gave us a good head start - we estimate that over 100 million people have seen it - but this is only the beginning.
We believe that the inspiring brands of the 21st century will be different than the giants of the 20th century. Instead of defined by their sheer size and power, we believe the brands of the future will be deeply shaped by genuine values. And they will live these values in every breath of their presence. A good example of this model comes from our friends at the Unreasonable Group; they have been (and continue to be) a great source of inspiration for us on this journey as they set out to become the “Virgin of the 21st century.”
So, what does this all mean? Instead of launching more and more products into the Holstee shop, we are launching verticals, which each will live as their own brand and store. Our first step on this journey is Holstee Print, our first vertical.
Holstee Print exists to bring inspiration, meaning and a smile to your homes and offices. We will be selling posters, cards and frames with Holstee content. On our mission to reach 1 billion people, we want to bring mindfulness to living rooms and work spaces across the world. Check out the Holstee Print store.
What do you think of our new direction? And which products and services would you like to see Holstee offering? Please leave a comment here or email me at fabian@holstee.com - I’d love to hear from you.

Do you ever search google for something unrelated to what you are doing? It totally interrupts you but you don’t want to forget? I do constantly. Would you find it useful to have a tool that would quickly capture your search query, but then it would disappear so you can get back to what you were doing and hopefully not lose your focus. It would gather the search results in the background and you could go view them at a better time. Do you think you would use that? (at In my head) High-res
