About Create Your Start
Create Your Start is a digital magazine, learning resource & community for all the ‘Starters’ out there who believe starting a business, nonprofit, or movement is possible but are looking for a helpful guide.
We love meeting new people, learning about the exciting things people are working on, and helping those operating businesses to be successful. We do this because we believe there is incredible power in building networks between people, and incredible power to learn in listening to others’ experiences.
If you believe in your business, your idea, or are trying to start something new, this is a great place to start and a great community to learn from.

Our vision is to be a knowledge resource & a community where aspiring and successful organizational leaders can teach and learn from each other.
Our Core Values
Being Givers Not Takers
Adam Grant in his book ‘Give and Take’ writes about the kind of people who are givers, and the kinds of people who are takers.
Givers are those that volunteer their time and knowledge to help others succeed. They do this because they believe when others succeed, they succeed. Givers believe in a positive-sum world.
We try to always be givers.
Real People Not Gurus
This magazine is not about hype. There are so many shiny faces and hype mongers out there promising to teach you to get rich quickly.
Our goal is to always seek out the best advice from those who have started or run a successful business. To share their own stories, what’s worked for them, and the lessons they’ve learned the hard way.
Radical Truth Beats the Hype Any Day
At White Fern, we always try to always recognize the underlying truth of any situation without sugar coating or spinning.
Only by knowing where you truly are, can you know what you have to do to get to where you want to go.
Sharing Genuine Value
Value is something real that makes your life better. It’s real advice that’s actionable and helpful, real insights that hadn’t occurred to you before, real inspiration that pushes you to make a move in the right direction.
This platform is about offering real value and forming a real community of people who want positive outcomes for everyone.
