We Are Crazy Enough: A Worldwide Movement

How it all began

We always believed in thinking differently and embracing new adventures. After successfully creating our first company at the ages of 20 and 22, and dedicating over four years to building it, we found ourselves at a crossroads. Despite our achievements, we felt a void—a yearning for deeper understanding and a desire to make a tangible impact on the world.

Our motivation stemmed from a profound desire to learn more about our world, to understand ourselves better, and to inspire others. We wanted to break free from the constraints of everyday life and seek out stories and experiences that would transform us. This burning curiosity and a quest for meaning led us to conceive the “We Are Crazy Enough” movement.

In just eight months, we made the bold decision to sell everything we owned and meticulously plan an extraordinary journey. Our mission was twofold: to find and share stories of remarkable individuals across the globe, and to challenge ourselves with the most exhilarating and unique experiences. We created a list of the craziest adventures worldwide and committed to stepping out of our comfort zone, embracing our fears, and living life to the fullest.

Our adventure took us across six continents, where we collected over 50 signatures of inspiring people on our flag and completed more than 100 unique challenges. From skydiving to surfing, climbing towering mountains to meeting indigenous cultures, each experience was a testament to the beauty and diversity of our world. We connected with Paralympic champions, Everest conquerors, and activists fighting for women’s rights, each encounter reinforcing the power of human resilience and determination.

After more than 400 days of adventure, discovery, and inspiration, we can confidently say that if you have a dream, you should pursue it with all your heart. Make memories, live an unforgettable life, and dare to think and act differently. The world is vast, full of wonders and extraordinary people waiting to be discovered. Be CRAZY ENOUGH to embark on your own journey, and you’ll find that the possibilities are limitless.

Why we decided to sell everything and travel the world

To be Inspired and Learn with Inspiring People

Our path crossed with some of the most inspiring individuals one could ever hope to meet. Paralympic champions who defied physical limitations to achieve greatness, climbers who conquered the formidable heights of Everest, and activists fighting tirelessly for women’s rights in India. Each person we met embodied the spirit of being CRAZY ENOUGH—enough to dream, enough to persevere, enough to make a difference.

Challenge Ourselves in Order to Grow

By stepping out of our comfort zones and embracing the most exhilarating and unique experiences, we aimed to push our limits and discover our true potential. These challenges, whether skydiving, training with Shaolin Monks in China, or scaling mountains, are opportunities for personal growth, teaching us valuable lessons and making us stronger. Each experience reinforced the idea that growth comes from facing our fears and pushing beyond perceived boundaries.

Spread a Positive Movement Worldwide

Our mission is to spread the message that anyone can achieve great things by being CRAZY ENOUGH. By sharing our journey and the inspiring stories we encounter, we hope to ignite a global movement that encourages positivity, courage, and bold action. We believe that showcasing these incredible tales of determination and success can motivate others to pursue their own dreams and make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.

Discover the World in a Unique Way

Traveling the world and immersing ourselves in diverse cultures and environments allows us to see the beauty and complexity of our planet. We chose to explore in unconventional ways, such as meeting indigenous communities and partaking in local traditions, to gain fresh perspectives and a deeper appreciation for the world around us. This approach not only broadened our horizons but also enriched our understanding of the myriad ways people live and thrive.

A Community of Crazy Enough people

As part of our “We Are Crazy Enough” movement, we embarked on an initiative to uncover the hidden gems of human experience by going to the streets and connecting with random people who had crazy enough stories to share. This initiative was born out of our belief that inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places and that everyone has a story worth telling.

We wanted to break down barriers and show that extraordinary lives are not just found in the headlines or among the famous, but in everyday people we pass by on the street. By listening to their tales of courage, resilience, and adventure, we aimed to shine a light on the incredible potential within all of us. These encounters enriched our journey, providing authentic, diverse perspectives that deepened our understanding of what it means to be CRAZY ENOUGH.
