a Social Enterprise
mission of István JOÓS
humanity evolving into connectedness through
ﬁnding the balance (wisdom) of free will (honest
selﬁshness) and love (honest service)
to enable & encourage people connecting and
learning about themselfes through each other –
thus serve my own development, and that of
others toward true and honest balance in life
I need to have BRANCHES.
These have the main purpose of GIVING.
Having only roots killed me, because I did not have purpose
and meaning and value in my life. I had no direction to ﬂourish.
Being selﬂess IS important.
I need connection.
Balance of the two.
That is honesty.
That is wisdom.
I must have ROOTS.
These have the main purpose of TAKING.
Trying to grow whitout roots, denying my selﬁsh needs also
killed me. I can not stand straight and give if I am not rooted.
Being selﬁsh is ALSO important.
1. to do my best for my personal balance
2. to utilize my technology knowledge to open
possibilities for people to connect, learn directly

charisma to ecourage others to dare to make the
scary step toward honesty about their true present

open to everybody to enhance
born Nov. 15, 1974 – a scorpio from the year of
the tiger working on the challenge of a 29 path
studied history and law in Hungary and in the
US, but got carried away by early rise and abrupt
fall of own internet business (1997-2006)
focused, enthusiast, content in my mission
as enabler of experiences that do leed to
growing understanding & consciousness
be a source of change puting into practice all I
learned about people and myself
merge lessons from my two distinct phases:
1. being selﬁsh is NOT the way (30 years)
2. pretending that I am a saint is NEITHER (5 ys)
utilize 12 ys of experience in web technologies
success & living – honesty about needs of ego
my experience is that I have to dare working on
(= invest myself into) what I am REALLY good at
& enthusiast about – fair money is a sure effect
I largely shifted from owning to being, but there
still are desires I could not yet let go; these I need
to fulﬁll for my equilibrium, peace, creating power
thus I balance spending to honor and develop
