At HigherLife, we believe in the power of story… your story. We want to help you share it with the world!

Whether you are looking to grow your business, extend your audience, or more effectively connect with your donors and potential customers, sharing your story in a creative, compelling, and authentic way can dramatically improve your impact and results.

As a publishing company, we offer a full-service, collaborative publishing model that offers you the benefit of our nearly 50 years of experience in the industry. In HigherLife, you have a capable partner in the superior development, design, and packaging of your story.

As a marketing company, we specialize in creating custom-built strategic marketing plans for individuals and organizations, businesses, and brands aiming to define core questions and identify good-sense tactics to extend your story in compelling ways.

As a coaching and consulting company, we work with corporations, small businesses, and charitable organizations in specific industry and market segments to help them more compellingly connect with their core audience. Our programs combine strategy development, marketing, consulting, branding, publishing, video, and new technologies all working together to help you generate more response and results from the people you want to reach, whether you are selling a product, looking to increase donations, create awareness, or offering a service.

Values you can trust. In many ways a company is like a person.  It has a personality. It has a character, values and a “mission”, a reason to exist.

Here’s who we are as a team and what we stand for.

Our vision:

Elevating and amplifying stories that can change the world. We bring stories to life – publishing and marketing ideas, information and insights that help people. We want to see individuals and organizations become who they are created to be and as a result, improve our culture and society.

Our mission:

To provide our clients with innovative solutions that produce results by authentically and compellingly connecting them with the audience they want to serve.

Our core values:

When you engage HigherLife it is our goal that you see these values reflected in how we work with you and how we treat you. We’re not perfect…but perfection is our goal and excellence is our standard.

Creativity – We encourage and reward people who challenge the status quo and boundaries of conventional thinking. Our profession calls for “out-of-the-box” thinking and our team works together to bring our clients the best ideas and possibilities to meet their goals.

Excellence – We take personal responsibility for our role as leaders in our industry and pursue excellence. We are a performance driven, results oriented company of experienced professionals who know how to get the job done at the highest level.

Integrity – We are dedicated to earn the trust of our clients and serve our community with the highest moral and ethical behavior. Our goal is to deliver on our responsibilities and commitments – we intend to do what we say we will do!

Relationship – Our client relationships are at the heart of everything we do. We crave the challenge to listen to our clients, understand their needs and make every effort to exceed their expectations by providing them with creative solutions and services.
