Live for a Living is a company built on a philosophy.

An idea that we can achieve greater life fulfillment when we follow our passions and put people and experiences first.

We focus on people.

People. The lost currency of today's culture. Live for a Living strives to put people, relationships, and life experiences ahead of money.

The more you pour your time, concern, and general care into others, the more people trust and want to be around you. The net effect of such is a broader, more intimate network of people helping people, be that via business, athletics, emotional support, inspiration, motivation, or any number of personal needs.

We play like children.

Some of us have forgotten the importance of physical play in our lives. Current culture has us glued to our phones, tablets, laptops and desktops; and the idea of getting outside and experiencing life is becoming foreign to some.

There should be no such thing as play vs. work. The Live for a Living philosophy contends that to do your very best work, you must have ample play in your day to flush out stale thoughts, worry, frustration, and general angst.

We work hard.

No, really, we do. We are communicators. Our experience - over 25 years buried deep in the trenches of brand-building, marketing, and advertising. How well we do it, makes or breaks our ability to survive and grow the Live for a Living concept.

Our breadth is our strength:

Christian Griffith
Founder

Christian is not a fan of routine. Not a fan of status quo, unfounded expectation, nor our current culture's drive for money, power, and material possessions.

Once upon a time, life was very different for dude. The big house, cars by Infiniti, private schools, and a housekeeper. Fancy job, in a fancy office, with a fancy title; but none of it made dude happy.

What drove Christian was the wild, unique, and yea, sometimes extreme experiences in which he was constantly chasing. The people he met became his excitement. The experiences, his life currency. His goal, to inspire others to see the same.

"Standing at death's door changed me forever."

Suffering through Survival Run Nicaragua on Isle de Ometepe, a volcanic island in Nicaragua.

It's October 29, 2015, and I'm uncomfortably awaiting the season 6 premiere of Animal Planet's MONSTERS INSIDE ME. The show was telling the story of "Arthur," the little amoeba that entered my body, ate through the walls of my intestines, set up shop on my liver, and tried to kill me

The amoeba was called Entamoeba Histolytica. Stands for "Tissue eating amoeba." You can click the link and read really scary, geeky science stuff, or you can trust me when I tell you that it was eating me, killing me, and rapidly growing inside of me.

"This was the largest liver abscess I have ever seen in my career," said Dr. Blass, Infectious Disease, Emory St. Joesph's Hospital.

I thought I was going to die.

Like, real death. Everything goes black, death. The real thing.

That's all it took.

"Dude, you almost &*^%* Died!"

It's always been a reality I just never accepted; and while that was great for my athletic comeback and seemingly medical miracle stories, it was not good for me. As the effects of the physical damage faded away through personal diligence and training, so did the mental and emotional awakening that I'd hoped would spark real change..

It never actually faded away, just pushed down. Neglected, sorta.

It took me seeing myself on national television, crying, and telling myself, back to myself, "Dude, you almost &*^%* died!"

I had been kicking around the idea of serious change for a long time before finally committing on October 29, 2015, but I was always scared to pull the trigger. Always seeking that "right time," until I realized the right time is when you make it the right time.

I quit my 9-5 job two days later.

I've decided to LIVE FOR A LIVING.
