“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”

-T.S. Eliot


I believe we are all called to explore beyond the increasingly stifling security of a corporate paycheck. It may seem scary and risky and full of difficulties, but what we’ll find on the other side of that exploration will be familiar to us: home.

My friends said I was foolish.

My family said I was stupid.

Even I worried I was acting carelessly.

After all, I had a good job and could comfortably support my family of 6 on my income. But I was walking away from it. Not just the job but the entire career.

And I’ve never looked back.


More and more people are desperate to do the same. They want to opt out of corporate work. They want to opt out of their place-less workplaces.

No more bland email writing, or featureless desks that go on for eternity. No more lethargic conference rooms or online meetings that make them want to gouge their own eyes out. No more politics, alliances of convenience or eggshell walking.

No more doing abstract work in an abstract environment for an abstract company who doesn’t care about you.  No more lying to their faces about being “one big family here in the office”.

They’d rather do tangible, messy work with their own, real family.

But how do they get there? How do does one upend their whole lives and land on their feet?

How do we go from sweaty palms and scarcity thinking to taking a risk?

How do we go from steady corporate paycheck to independent incomes?

How do we go from an hollow resume to legacy building work?

How do we go from narrow-minded corporate culture to expansive family culture?

How do we go from being bound by corporate values to living our family values?

Answering these questions is exactly what the Pioneer Family does. We help people get from the left side of those questions to the right side. While your path may be different than ours, we’re ready and able to help you because we’ve put in the hard work ourselves.

We’ve taken, and are today, taking steps into our personal unknown with faith. Come and join us.
