The Ampersand Guild

There's so much to learn

As a symbol, the ampersand is more than additive; it’s multiplicative. It signifies the power of building on the ideas of others.

Have you noticed everything has a “plus” appended to it these days?

Apple+, Disney+, Paramount+, Walmart+…

There’s certainly an additive property to these, but here at Timeless & Timely, you may have noticed that we don’t simply do “plus”.

We take a deeper and more thoughtful approach to things. We know your time is valuable. We appreciate the impact of history, literature, and great thinkers, wherever you find them — and we think you deserve more than just more.

More than more


So we have “&” Subscribers. Or, as we call it:

The Ampersand Guild

Why a guild?

Historically, a guild is “an association of craftsmen or merchants formed for mutual aid and protection and for the furtherance of their professional interests.”

And I like to think we’re doing that here.

Helping you improve yourself by focusing on things that have mattered throughout human history and continue to matter today.

Timeless character strengths and leadership principles.

Why “&”?

We chose the “&” symbol, which can be traced back to the 1st century A.D. and the old Roman cursive, in which the letters E and T occasionally were written together to form a ligature.

It’s the embodiment of collaboration: two letters that combine to make a universal symbol of linking two or more ideas.

And isn’t that what understanding the past and connecting it with the present is really all about? Looking for trends and creating something new, something better.

It could be a better product, a better world, or simply a better version of you!

That’s what we aim to bring our Guild members.
