Low-cost & Pro-Bono, High-Quality Storytelling Services for Projects that are Making a Difference in their Communities.

Making a Living is Resisting

Hustling with Style

In the current state of the world, if you hustle to make a living, you probably struggle. Either because you chose it or you have no other option.

Inequality forces many people to work more hours for less money. The way someone looks or their place of origin, even their gender, defines their work’s value.

That inequality also makes it harder for many people to have access to expensive and prohibitive storytelling services.

In a world of big carbon footprints, those who create, on a small and local scale, are making this world better. That is something that should be encouraged, not difficult to execute.

Easy Access to Tools & Resources

Collaborative Economy & Community

Milpa is Resistance

As in the Milpa, community is everything. Developing long-lasting bonds and relationships gives us everyone more value than only monetary transactions. Caring about each other makes us stronger.

  • Exchange. Not everything is about money; we can exchange services/products.
  • Pay-what-you-can. When you can.
  • Pro-bono. If your situation currently doesn’t allow you to pay with anything, send me a message, and we can try to work it out.

Do you think it’s non-sense? This project is sustained differently, support it here if you feel like.
