Independent personal development observations, ruminations, reminders, and teachings by Zero Dean based on real-life experiences and an eight+ year journey intentionally living beyond comfort.

Because my posts are written in response to life experiences, current ruminations, or lessons learned from my journey (2010 to present), there is no set schedule or agenda (other than to provide value).

Zerosophy reaches a *combined audience of over 300,000 people per month (*includes social media).

No ads • No sponsors • No affiliate marketing links • No annoying pop-ups • No seminars • No free ebooks • No “secrets to success” • No mystical motivation • No insincere enthusiasm • No superficial ego-boosting posts • No manipulative marketing tactics • No emphasis on materialism over happiness • No desire to imitate anyone or conform to the status quo • No insistent requests to subscribe to blog or follow on social media • No hidden agenda • No one to impress. • No hypocrisy — I live in congruence with the lessons I share. Love it or hate it. Content is written to be helpful and meaningful, not perfect or popular or designed for likes.
