I quit my last job in 2014. My mother Carol, praise her name, passed away unexpectedly. I committed in that moment to living each day to the fullest. I was locked up in prison for years for marijuana, I was a teenager, afraid and alone. My mother loved me unconditionally. She loved me so much that it gave me the will to live, to love myself no matter how much hate, violence, and trauma I survived. My Mother birthed the love I now generate in my heart for all life. I honor my mother’s legacy through Stier Forward, everything I’ve been a part of since. Take a look into the center of our logo, can you see a C in the middle? Mama Carol loved me unconditionally and this eternal transformational gift has propelled me from the jail house to the White House - and that was just our warmup. I am on earth to empower the divine feminine. Stier Forward has shaped governments, foundations, and the private sector to be feminine, egalitarian and inclusive. Join us, it’s really groovy here. - Carol and her son JD
