Inspired by Inukshuk

​Inukshuk (pronounced in-ook-shook), is a stone monument erected in the image of humans. Inukshuks serve as direction markers in the open and expansive Arctic. They are a tool of survival and a symbol of unselfish acts of the Inuit people. The Inukshuk symbolizes co-operation, balance and unselfishness; the idea that teaching and group effort is greater than individual effort.

Each stone is a separate entity yet each supports, and is supported by, the one above and the one below it. No one piece is any more or any less important than the other. Its strength lies in its unity. Its significance comes from its meaning as a whole. The Inukshuk reminds us of our interdependent responsibilities to invest our efforts today, to direct a better way for all of us tomorrow.

"I have been balancing stones for quite a few years now, so inukshuks seems like the obvious extension. For balancing stones, the goal is to make it look as delicate and precarious as possible, where as it seems the idea with the inukshuks is to make it as solid as possible."

A WORD ABOUT TESTIMONIALS AND ENDORSEMENTS

The financial sector is a heavily regulated industry. While some regulations have been circumvented (such as the broker-exemption to the fiduciary standard of the 1940 Investment Advisor Act) or some have been repealed (like the Glass-Steagall Act which had previously kept investments separate from commercial banks), some such as the restrictions to testimonials, are justly enforced. The SEC rightly prohibits any statement concerning a client’s experience with an adviser or an endorsement by a celebrity, client or anyone else because such testimonials are deemed to be selective by definition. Publication of an offer to provide a testimonial is also prohibited. That is why you will never see testimonials on this site nor endorsements of us on social media sites, such as LinkedIn.
