Personal Evolution Company!

Mission Statement

We are seekers who find the state of humanity inadequate. We believe the unrealized potential of the individual is both the source and solution to this problem. Our goal is to inspire fellow seekers to tap into their unlimited potential, through a personalized combination of philosophy, science, technology, and community.

Our Goal

To improve the lives of billions of people.

Our Definition of Personal Evolution:

The process of shifting your perception by removing the contradicting thoughts, beliefs, and actions that stand between who you are now and who you want to become.

James & Steph Purpura

James and Steph’s journey of transformation is nothing short of extraordinary. Before they met 15 years ago, both of their lives had hit rock bottom. They were both financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. Life had beaten them down and shattered their self-esteem. At the lowest point in their lives, they met and were united by a shared vision of creating and becoming more. They started the only place they could by working on themselves and helping each other grow. They believed in each other but more importantly, they challenged each other every step of the way, and never settled.

Shortly after meeting, Steph wrote James’ first resume and taught him how to send an email. This began James’ unlikely career in technology. Around this time, they also started a family. Fast forward fifteen years, after many ups and downs and a lot of hard work, Steph and James recently sold their tech company, one of the world’s largest construction software companies. They now have five beautiful children and live an extraordinary life. Through this journey of self-creation, they developed a personal philosophy centered around perception. They believe perception, more than any other factor, will determine how someone’s life will turn out. James and Steph started Powerful U as their way to give back to the world. They believe that through the knowledge they accumulated on their journey they can help others live the life they desire. Their dream is to bring personal development to the masses by making it affordable and readily available to all seekers. This event is the first step in realizing that dream. An event of this magnitude would normally cost well over a thousand dollars. To stay true to their vision, they are selling tickets for much less and offering a scholarship program so all that want to attend, can attend.
