TEDxSoMa guests not only tasted the delicious chocolate but got to learn about what sets Alter-Eco apart: the way they make their chocolate. Check out their website for more info on how Alter-Eco gives back to the communities and farmers who produce their chocolate.

Chaordic Mind

Chaordic Mind | TEDxSoMa | Scoop.it
In 1993, Dee Hock, founder of VISA, coined the term “chaordic” which described systems that are both chaotic and ordered. This term stands for the harmonious coexistence of opposing forces. Life presents us with many chaordic events, opportunities, and business decisions -- it is our job to maintain the balance.

I strive to create a community that enables the balance in these chaordic life moments. Please comment, participate, and get involved. If you have something to say, speak up and be heard. Remember, be constructive and collaborative.
