The idea of the 1up movement is for individuals and organizations, to collaborate, to enhance economic and social conditions, using a process of social entrepreneurship, while maximizing critical thinking techniques.  The 1up movement only exists when there is a conscious effort, or collaboration, of organizations and individuals putting words into action. Its very essence stems from the combining and sharing of knowledge and resources, all used in a positive way to enhance the economic and social conditions of everyone involved. The movement funnels through social entrepreneurship, and its effectiveness is maximized using critical thinking techniques and practices.

Most people see the name “1up Entertainment” and think our main focus is entertainment.  Others read our articles, and assume, we’re just another group of disgruntled individual letting out our frustrations. 

These assumptions are far from the truth. So what is, “The 1up Movement,” and 1up Entertainment, and what are the purpose of all these articles you continue to see circulating on social media?  For starters, 1up Entertainment/Consulting is only one aspect of “The 1up Movement.”  When I use the phrase, “stay 1up”, it means to stay focused on making positive self-elevation and social change.  It means to avoid the evils and traps of the world, and to think more critically, while making good decisions. Staying 1up means, avoiding the drama, confusion, deceptions, and daily pitfalls.  It does not mean to 1up someone in a malice way, to outdo someone, to belittle them, or to brag and boast in success. 

The idea of the 1up movement is for individuals and organizations, to collaborate, to enhance economic and social conditions, using a process of social entrepreneurship, while maximizing critical thinking techniques.  We do not promote any religious organization or theology, but we accept those who promote non-divisive values and morals, while acknowledging their creator. We have also adapted the idea of embracing a resource based economy over the current monetary one.  Our codes, below, are the guidelines we expect all individuals involved in our movement to uphold, promote, and follow.  Strategically, we like to reach out to start up nonprofit organizations that have great missions and ideas for problem solving, but limited manpower and resources.

Instead of waiting for financial resources from the government (or the establishment), we try to figure out ways to work together to create revenue, awareness, and to obtain resources.  We are anti-capital greed, and pro social collaboration, wealth building, and sharing.  We encourage positive social change, and we denounce anything that has proven to be harmful and destructive, to enhancing the minds and lives of young men and women.  The articles we write reflect a new wave of effective media coverage, which highlights problems, but counters with solutions.  We aim to avoid hate mongering and verbal attacks, while addressing real serious issues.  We allow debates, or perspectives from all sides of the isle, to be presented side by side, for the readers to evaluate both sides of the coin, without using vulgar dialog and hateful rhetoric.  When interviewing musicians and entertainers, we go beyond the music, and we deal with issues concerning their outlook on family, and their codes and philosophies in life.  For those who may not be on board with the movement, we ask that they to try to be more conscious in the content of the work that they create, and to try to be involved in some of the activities that we create for social awareness.  1up Entertainment/Consulting is the organizational and business part of the 1up movement. We provide digital marketing, social media management, and strategic event planning, for an affordable price. With that knowledge, thank you for your time, and please contact us if you would like to build together.  Email: 1upentertainment@gmx.com
