You might be asking yourself...

Why "Agathist"?

"Agathist" comes from the Greek word agathos, meaning "good". An agathist is one who believes that all things trend towards "the good".

However, do not mistake an agathist for an optimist. This isn't about finding silver linings, glasses half full, or saying things aren't as bad as they seem.

Agathism is about acknowledging reality, even when it isn't pretty, and doing the work to make it better one action at a time.

That's how we do things around here.

I first had the idea for Agathist in 2017. You can check the receipts for the domain name! But now is the time. I’m really excited about the clients we’re going to meet, the team we’re going to build, and what we’re going to achieve.
