Welcome to Big Little Life. A concept, a business, a resource centre and most importantly – a family. We are Chris, Vaida, Boris, and a bub on the way.
We minimised our stuff, pulverised our debt, unplugged ourselves from the grid and hand crafted a bus into home.
We are tired of popularist content and people aiming to be “Influencers” when they don’t actually have a message – empty vessels make the most noise and clearly we are living in a world full of those. But rather than point the finger of blame, we want to redirect the ship and start spreading the ideas that are going to help society in the future. The irony is we want to be influencers ourselves, but we want to influence people with evidence, creativity and genuineness that will spark positive change.
We identified two voids that we wanted to fill:
Leadership; we want to lead by example and show that anyone can take simple steps to live a happier sustainable life while also being business savvy; and
Unity; in a world where everyone is searching to corner their niche, people have become mono-focused and lost sight of the big picture. It’s time to start drawing people together again. Just because some ways of living life might not work for you, or us, or others – doesn’t mean we can’t all work together.
As a family, we decided to focus on what we value in life and use those values to define success. We believe the world is good, but can be much better with some conscious effort and help. We are here to share our experiences, thoughts and knowledge, and since everyone learns differently we are packaging our content into written, audio and visual media.
Big Little life is also about helping businesses transition into a sustainable and socially conscious future. As you might see we are passionate about positive change and we take that into the business world too. We have combined our skills in business, graphic design and environmental management to provide businesses a unique opportunity to become sustainable and also brand that story to stand out from the crowd. We love devising sustainability initiatives and then promoting that awesome work in the way it deserves.
Chris is an environmental scientist, biologist and business coach. Vaida is a graphic and web designer, style enthusiast and photographer. Boris is a Bernese Mountain Dog and Bub is still incubating.
We hope you can see that change is possible, because we are just everyday people that decided to become conscious to our own lives and our own decisions. Come along for the ride. Big Little Life – it’s a lifestyle unto ourselves: one little family striving for big things!
