We Do

At Upstream, we believe INSPIRATION and INFORMATION are essential in developing the desire to create change, the belief that change can happen and the understanding of what needs to change in order to achieve our desired outcome. However, the inspiration we gain from others is short term and does not lead to long-term TRANSFORMATION. 


Transformation happens over time through learning, application and practice. Before we can begin to make changes in our lives, we must first understand WHY we react, behave, feel, think, and believe what we do. When we understand the problem at its source, why the problem exists, and have a systematic process to follow, we are able to create meaningful and lasting change in everything we do.
