Pattern of Purpose
is a communications
studio helping people and companies, spot and share their genius.
A client once said, “Sometimes it’s easier to say yes to what others want than risk your true calling.” We feel that. When you’ve gotten to where you are by making others look good, it can feel counterintuitive to build a platform of your own. We ease into that process with one simple, yet powerful question: What do you want to be known for?
