Help Us Reach More People

Casting Call!

At Polyface, we are looking to interview and video record several members of the tribe about their experiences with Peak Prosperity for future use on our website and in marketing activities, specifically around how Peak Prosperity has positively impacted their lives (ex: preparing well in advance of COVID-19 shortages thanks to Chris’s early reporting, building a resilient homestead/farm that has significantly increased quality of life, making smarter investment decisions aligned with more sustainable organizations and missions, etc.)

If this is something you’d be interested in being a part of, please email [email protected] and she’ll reach out to you with a simple set of questions to determine whether or not your story would be a good fit for filming at this time. Even if not chosen for interviewing at Polyface, we’d love to hear from you and keep your name for future interview opportunities where there may be a better fit.
