I don’t see consumption as a bad thing. If you consume the right things you can have really wonderful objects around you and a really wonderful lifestyle because of those objects.

“In the end of the day it comes down to problem solving. That’s what I teach.


It’s how do you solve problems and how do you give tools to people in order to solve those problems. How do you not get dismayed or defeated by problems because that’s what life is. It’s a series of problems that you have to learn how to solve. Sometimes it seems easy and sometimes it isn’t.” -Nick Moen
