Meet the Team

This team believes that we are all somehow connected. We may have different family, health, financial, political, religious beliefs, values, or living situations, but for the most part can agree on wanting to live out our time on earth to our fullest potential.  Maybe that is why many of us strive to move up in an organization, make more money, spend more time with family, travel, try to become healthier, and why many of us make a “Bucket List” of things to do in life before our time here expires.  Regardless of what it is we are trying to accomplish, we all strive to be happy and live a life worthy of being shared with others.

We want to encourage individuals to take “Happiness” to the next level!  To help people realize their life dreams through the stories of others and to find support and make it happen.   Sometimes people lose focus of their dreams or find them hard to achieve. This site is geared to connect and inspire people to pursue a dream and to explore what is out there through stories.  No dream is too small or too big to achieve and share. It is incredible what the power of a story can do and the effect it can have on others.  Help us share/tell your story or report on someone else’s dream or aspiration. Let’s build this community!

Neal Piper, CEO, Founder

Neal PiperOver the past 5 years, I have been fortunate to see the beauty of 50 countries in all 7 continents.  Through my journey, I have been able to peel away the layers of complexity that exists in different cultures. From hanging out with a Masai Tribe in Kenya, enjoying Chai Tea with an Egyptian in Cairo, to learning about Rugby from the Maori people in New Zealand, I have learned to appreciate the uniqueness that exists in all of us. I learned that although each culture is unique, we have a lot more in common than we have differences.

To me, the definition of “Living the Dream” means trying something new or adventurous every day. Taking pride in work, traveling the world and learning from different cultures.  For someone else, “Living the Dream” may mean having a loving spouse, becoming a parent or becoming an aspiring chef.  We all dream differently, and have many dreams. The key is that we follow our dreams with passion and live life to the fullest along the way. I created this community to share this goal and create a community with like-minded people.

I have been fortunate to travel around the world and hear stories about challenges, fears, dreams, and aspirations.  With all the negative media out there, I am excited to be part of an endeavor that brings positive motivation for living life to the fullest through a supportive community of LTDers.
