Brkfree is a call to live well. You can live your life in any way you choose. You don’t have to follow conventions or expectations.
It is a conversation on work, life, and adventure. Turns out, you can have your cake and eat it too. It all comes down to intent and design. What do you want, and how are you going to do it? It’s your call.
Here on Brkfree, I write about what I want, what I’ve done, and how I did it. My goal is to help as many other people achieve their dreams as possible. My goal is to help people stop saying, “I want,” and start saying “I am committed to x and here’s how I’m going to do it.”
I also think that personal freedom can be paired seamlessly with doing good things for other people and for the world. That too is all about design. One way I’ve found to maintain our own standard of living and personal freedom while living sustainably is called biomimicry, and I write about that on my site BiomimicryBits. I like that idea because it works, and because it’s convenient: who doesn’t want to have a damn good time while doing good?
Who are we?
We’re me – Peter Croce.
I grew up in the best small town on this blue-green dot: DeLand, Florida, USA. I have some amazingly brilliant family and friends both there and around the globe who continually inspire me.
I believe strongly in the power of business to solve social and environmental problems; I believe in the carrot over the stick. For the last year I worked with a program that does environmental verification for businesses near Portland, OR — basically, we give the guys who are doing good things publicity, networking, and educational opportunities while continuously helping them do better. I chose the position because I believe strongly in the power of another business certification program, B Corporation.
I studied psychology and criminology at the University of Florida, then decided not to go to law school because I believe business has far more leverage to create substantive solutions by real people and, therefore, for real people. I closely follow methods of achieving more abundant, benevolent systems, processes, and structures, like the inspiring field of biomimicry. Brkfree is a conversation centered on doing good through empathetic and innovative intent and design — it’s a fulfilling now as a method of designing and celebrating an abundant tomorrow.
I know we can do exponentially more together than we could ever do alone. So let’s talk.
“Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.”
