About

Think for Yourself is an independent publishing collective made up of creatives, activists, entrepreneurs & authors who believe that in producing amazing, perspective-changing work and compelling stories, we can empower people to better succeed in life. We are independent, inclusive and determined to inspire people to live life to the fullest.

Why This Exists

Our core efforts tend to revolve around empowering people who create high-quality work to take their creations to the next level. Joel believe that through tapping into our own happiness and creativity, our inherent nature is to help other find their happiness and creativity. This, we believe, is our ultimate human potential.

We want to be part of a positive movement in consciousness – one that removes traditional hurdles and replaces them with colorful trampolines. Quite simply, we want to liberate.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
~Buddha
