Just Imagine… A 360° Perspective

During our tour of an aircraft carrier a few years back, a jet fighter pilot explained that planes need a 56-kilometer-per-hour wind to take off on such a short runway. To reach this steady breeze, the captain turns his ship into the wind. “Shouldn’t the wind come from the plane’s back?” I asked. The pilot answered, “No. The jets must fly into the wind. That’s the only way to achieve lift.”

Quite often over the course of our past decade+ of seeking to rediscover humanity at its best, it felt like we were flying into the wind. And whenever that happened, good karma kicked in and we achieved lift —or rather our spirits were lifted by unexpected kind words of support. Precisely that special kind of lift came our way recently from Marlene Burns, one of our long-time followers when she reached out to me recently with the following message:

Hey, Dennis… when I went to check out today’s post, it defaulted to the BizCatalyst 360° website. It then corrected itself but I’d like to suggest that you do a promo for it. It is chocked full of such amazing articles (many of which I missed). I just bookmarked it ;)

We’ll her words were just the nudge (or better yet, kick in the pants) needed for us to step back and do something we apparently don’t do often enough –that is to amplify the visibility of all that’s now tucked under the 360° Nation umbrella. I suppose we’ve been so focused for so long on looking forward in our quest to rediscover humanity that we rarely take a breather to look in the rear-view mirror to elevate all that’s sprouted up along the way. And quite frankly, there are still people out there that think we’re all about business (perhaps a function of our Site name), which hasn’t been the case for many years, as illustrated by our tagline; LIFE | CULTURE | BIZREIMAGINED, with Life & Culture dominating our publishing these days.

DENNIS is Founder & CEO & Reimaginator of 360° Nation, encompassing a wide range of multimedia enterprises, including BizCatalyst 360° —an award-winning global media digest; 360° Nation Studios —dedicated to reaching across the world in an effort to capture, produce, and deliver positive, uplifting messages via blockbuster global events, including HopeFest 360° and BucketFest 360° and; GoodWorks 360° —a pro-bono consulting foundation focused entirely on providing mission-critical advisory services to nonprofits worldwide. Everything Dennis does is carried out "for-good" vs. "for-profit", reflecting his belief that it’s time for a renaissance of pure, unbridled wonder. Time to renew in both our hearts and in our souls more joy, more kindness, more compassion, more understanding, and that magical sense of truly belonging to something greater than the status quo. And time to bring the spirit of “humanity at its very best” back to the forefront. More about his "backstory" HERE. Dennis is also a contributing author to the Best-Selling Book Chaos to Clarity: Sacred Stories of Transformational Change.


  1. The community you have created allows everyone, without distinction, to publish their stories and ideas online. Everyone has the opportunity to discuss, comment on the proposed works and create interesting professional networks. A place where you can promote yourself freely and without filters, only with the aim of engaging, discussing serenely, imagining, sharing topics, passions and important values. In short, where a pleasant interaction is created.
    All of this is useful for creating a successful community. But at the base there is your initial contribution. A contribution that is transformed into experience that flows into the distribution of knowledge, into the management of conversations.

  2. Dear Dennis,

    07.35 on cool and sunny Monday morning in Winchester. I have just read your inspiring article. Not just inspiring, but initiating levels of energy this the morning!

    You write clarifying what really goes on behind the scenes of our hearts and minds. Ready for takeoff today and heading into the wind! I have often seen Concord, supersonic passenger jet icon take off from Heathrow Airport, London. As soon as this amazing passenger jet was on the runway, hundreds of people dashed to the windows to witness takeoff.

    Nose pointed down, engines fired up with accompanying sound and vibration as it raced along the runway, soaring into the air.

    BizCatalyst36O has enhanced the lives of many including myself. Not just creativity and evermore desire to write, but genuine friendships we all cherish so much. BizCatalyst36O is not just a platform but a positive element of everyday life. BIzCatalyst360; your creation Dennis, provides a runway to greater things in addition to togetherness, friendship energy, creativity, kindness and camaraderie.

    Thank you Dennis.

    • Can’t thank you enough for your thoughtful comments and never-ending support, Simon. What started out as a vision has emerged as a wonderful community of kindred spirits and friends – more than we ever could have imagined. Which is why we are doing our very best to “re-imagine” all that we do every day “for good”, buoyed by your support and that of so many others. Thank you!

  3. I love the Mascot Bizcat…Finding new stuff daily here and to think a month ago I hadn’t even heard of Bizcatalyst360. Found you through a friend Larry Tyler and so grateful I did. I love this site and the articles and storys. Packed full of good info and talented writers. A true labor of love. Thanks for providing such a wonderful platform!

  4. Thank you Dennis for this great recap!
    This surely is a powerful platform for sharing humanity at its best.
    There are a few ‘Special Channels’ that I didn’t know were there… #superexcited
