Welcome to NORTIA Magazine

NORTIA is the only magazine that takes a view of success and development using a personal approach. NORTIA readers understand that the world has elements beyond our control and that the relationship between ourselves and the world we live in requires an introspective look at what we want and how we choose to get it. No longer should we look outward for our opportunities, luck and favourable moments, instead we should look deeply at out our lives and define success for ourselves.

Our readers understand and embrace that they are responsible for their long-term success and happiness, and need to be proactive in finding the inspiration, motivation, and resources to achieve their goals. Some may choose to be leaders of a Fortune 500 company; others may wish to be more open with their self-expression instead of allowing others to define them. Whatever you decide, NORTIA understands that our readers desire the freedom and control to make all meaningful personal decisions and we are committed to helping you define success for yourself.

Our articles are here to provide the confidence to pursue your own fortune and destiny, to deny our limitations and emerge as a self-fulfilling individual.
