The Insedia site, which means to “settle” in Italian, evolved from the concept that people with financial issues suffer at different levels. In respect of that, and consistent with the core team values of Insedia, which are to solve problems within the rules using personal responsibility, creativity, and dignity, we encourage people to join our inclusive mission to help people.
Insedia believes there is no silver bullet to solve every problem immediately, and although there are things people are doing that are working and moving them towards a resolution, some issues will take time to resolve. The challenge to change or tweak the traditional finance models and engage politicians to introduce new legislation is our community goal.
Insedia is both collective (front end news) and collaborative (back end community). The concept is simple-collect information on your issue and then discuss it with like minded people to produce a “synergistic” result. This micro approach is done at your own pace and at your own comfort level. There are people in a similar predicament as you, but they might have successfully solved the issues you are facing.
Most of us want to play by the rules, pay our bills, and make sound financial decisions. There’s no reason creative, respective, and dignified solutions can’t be cultivated by a group of smart people. Unlike banks, with all due respect, it may actually take a community to bail you out. The suffering can end. The abundance can begin.
Join, share and resolve at Insedia. Settle Your Life™.
A driven individual who seeks to challenge status quo, Daniel quickly felt the weight of college debt after graduation. "It's what pushed me out the door to find any job I could just to cover my bills and sacrifice a career I'd enjoy." After working for two fortune 500 companies Daniel came to understand it is status quo which keeps the "wheel of debt" turning. "It's time to stop looking at life through our bank account lens and begin living a life we are set out to enjoy." Daniel believes collectively people can challenge the status quo of debt and create a new path to abundance.
In a varied career that has included web design, research, blog, podcast, social media management, radio and television, Phil understands the impact of the communication culture. "Society has been dominated by opinion dressed up as news and advice for decades. It saturates our media outlets, it has become extremely pervasive and wildly influential. What's important is that like-minded people have an unbiased, non-partisan info center where people can gather with trust to discuss the topic that influences every decision they make.. ..their personal finances."
As an industry veteran of two successful internet start ups, Dan feels technology can offer positive opportunities to actually better day-to-day lives. "A creative software platform can allow people to leverage a community of data to talk to each other and exchange information that can help them make better financial decisions, even while standing in line at Starbucks." Dan believes the ability to research, compare notes, and interact with others in the same predicament, will move a life forward, and yes, collectivity, might even change the world.
With more than 15 years of operations, technology, sales and marketing expertise, Jose is perfectly suited for Insedia’s road ahead. “In the last 10 years, we’ve been weighed down by loss. Not just losses in financial markets or in personal equity, but losses related to human capital that’s so easily overlooked. Debt and its debilitating effects have taken a toll everywhere you look in our culture. Insedia is about helping people and fixing a system that's failed so many of us.”
