A rise is a spot higher than the ground surrounding it. To rise is to move upward or in the case of the sun it is to emerge above the horizon shining light into the darkness.

In 2020 a viral pandemic gripped the world and suddenly people found themselves without jobs, without a support structure and without any vision of the future. For many people this was the moment that was going to define their generation and they had two choices; buckle down and weather the storm or use what they could to build something better.

At The Company Inc. we also had choices to make. We could sit idly by and wait for the world to start spinning again or we could be the creative wizards that we are and seek out the shining lights in the darkness and bring their stories to the world.

Stories of people who elevated themselves beyond the limitations of their surroundings. People who were determined to do more than move forward and get through tough times. People who hope to come out the other side stronger and more resilient. People who knew they could Rise.

Theirs are the stories of becoming the light in the darkness, hope in the misery, and success born from failure and we are blessed enough to be a part of sharing them with the world. We hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired us.
