The Wopida, Training and Service Group is an association of entrepreneurial spirits who support each other in creating ecologically sustainable, profitable businesses that are led by missions of integrity and value.
We provide training and services that empower 21st-Century entrepreneurs to create holistic- and ecologically sustainable and profitable enterprises. We do this by respectful facilitation and co-creation of missions that are clear and concise value propositions (Mission = vision plus action) and support each other in being accountable for integrity of action, in the spirit of the Four Agreements, outlined by Don Miguel Ruiz, 1997 thru Miguel Angel Ruiz, MD:
Wopida is the Dakota word for Gratitude.
"When I founded the Group in 2006, I had been reflecting on the gifts of my family treegifts of resilience and love of Nature. My parents had moved from Ohio in 1938 to begin a life following the “call of the loon,” the state bird of Minnesota, and a sound that seemed to echo their passion for the peace and serenity they found discovering nature. Thus, as their third son, I was born where the prairies, deciduous woodlands and waters meet, in Wakpecute Dakota territory overlooking the Straight River in Faribault, Minnesota." - Tom Weaver
