“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” - Mark Twain
Almost everyone has asked themselves the question "why am I here" multiple times, including myself. Now, I don't mean "why am I here" to intend a physical location but instead refer to the meaning or purpose to our lives. The answer is quite challenging to attain, it requires constant self-reflection.
At this point in my life I have come to realize what brings me most joy in this world is to improve the quality of life of others around me. There are many different ways to do this, but one that is close to Jesse and I is through the means of social business. We believe that creating a sustainable, social impact company whose sole purpose is not only to make money but instead create good in society is a great way we can use our skills to contribute back to society. With a portion of the revenues we generate through the sale of our products at Michael Wynek, we will create a fund that invests in charities and other social businesses that improve the quality of healthcare and education of others within Canada and around the world.
Jesse and I have always held the belief that time is one of our most, if not the most valuable non purchasable asset we have in our lives. It's value cannot be overstated but whose worth is not always realized or treated with respect. Unfortunately, in today's world a lot people take it for granted, they procrastinate and come up with excuses for not doing the things they want to do. As two fortunate human beings who have amazing parents, role models, and mentors, Jesse and I have learned to appreciate time and see the true value that it offers. It is for this reason that we decided to design and sell wristwatches with the aim of creating a social movement of people who value time and most importantly demonstrate it by "DOING MORE"
At Michael Wynek we desire our brand to become a symbol of "DOING MORE", a symbol of helping others and a reminder that every second we have on this planet is truly a luxury we cannot afford to waste. We want people of all backgrounds who come up with excuses to start realizing their true potential by doing. Furthermore for those who are already doing, we encourage them to keep creating and inspiring others to do the same.
Jesse has done a wonderful job of explaining where we are in the process of getting this venture off the ground in his previous blog "Our Start". I hope you stick around to join the movement of doing more and bettering the world, checkout our timepieces to be released in the near future and we wish you all the best in life to succeed beyond your wildest dreams.
