Our Philosophy: People Profile is an exercise interviewing ordinary people to find their extraordinary, mission-enhancing stories. These stories represent a powerful way to communicate and motivate others. It can come from not only reasoned argument, but argument bolstered by compelling, 1st-person testimony that advances one’s struggles and interest. People telling their own stories can move mountains, and all kinds of people, large or small, can benefit from harnessing the power of true experience stories, such as that provided by People Profile. We intend to bring people’s true, personal experience stories to the world so that we can educate and enrich the lives of those we serve.
