Who does all this crazy™ stuff?
As an organisation we look for people who are crAzy™ enough to believe that they can change the world and want to change it consciously. We attract people whose desire is to work with like-minded individuals in an organisation whose sole purpose is to leave a legacy of humans and organisations who consciously change the world for the better, far into the future.
Since we advocate entrepreneurialism, our “staff” members are not staff at all. Everyone here has multiple income sources and contracts their services to crAzy™ always wins. We call them the crAzy™ crew members. To keep the crAzy™ going, each crew member receives executive coaching as part of their engagement and has access to our extensive library of business, motivational and other texts. This ensures that they stay empowered, not only to change the world through crAzy™ always wins, but also to live a legacy of their own creation outside the organisation.
Each of the crAzy™ crew members is highly experienced in key aspects of business management, marketing, human resources, business process and administration. For highly specialised projects and/or industries we have a pre-qualified panel of experts whom we utilise on a project by project basis
