Architects are the people who have the fervor, vision, and systems-brained ability to build innovative and disruptive businesses that change the landscape of their industry and the world.
The Architect sees business as an infinite, never-ending game to master. They look for innovative ways to solve problems better than they’ve ever been solved before. Solutions, systems, and entire businesses that effectively solve problems are the core direction architects go.
Businesses are the most effective way for them to express their innermost psyche.
Architects are firey beings–and without being grounded in their inner work and self-care practices, they easily burn out through working too hard.
The Architect thrives when they have purpose and fulfillment in the businesses they create.
Architects can create big results with seemingly less work through the power of systems creation. They think: what’s the most scalable, repeatable process possible–and how can we use that to accelerate.
An Architect's Core Motivator
The Architect holds the masculine quality of being “the container,” or “the structure for which chaos can be held.” As people, Architects are ambitious, problem-solving visionaries.

You walk your talk and have scaled your genius through successful digital products such as courses, podcasts, masterminds, and coaching programs.

Honoring This Archetype
Your Primary Archetype Is Your North Star
Honoring your Architect Archetype truly means you honor yourself as the vessel, first. The Architect archetype is, of course, the type who is powerful with systems, numbers, conversions, strategy, vision, business, and building something out of nothing.
And because they’re the builder, the innovator, the disruptor of structures–they must manage their firey energy and take deep care of themselves.
The Architect’ worst enemy is themselves and their self-destructive inner patterns. Architects who do their inner work are the ones who thrive in business scaling, growth, and lasting success so they’re not the bottleneck.
