Non-Profit Fundraising and SHOWING MY BRILLIANCE

Non-Profit Fundraising and SHOWING MY BRILLIANCE

I work with non-profit organizations reward their supporters while fundraising. The program is part of what Amazon Smiles does but it also has a point system that leverages the community’s normal spending.Today I got to speak to a new non-profit who’s focus is helping women with cancer. Right now they are working on the Cinderella Project which helps girls with cancer be able to attend prom with donated dresses. Very worthy cause! From that meeting I got a referral and forever business thinking I told her that we should start up her group first then sponsor the referred church so that her group would have the leverage of the second group. YAY!

Do you ever just feel like you are doing what you are supposed to be doing with your life? I noticed that when I get to present, train new distributors and office staff of Non-profits and Health Professionals, and work the business with business minded individuals I feel a kinda buzz within. I feel alive and purposeful! I LOVE THAT!

Yesterday I got to talk with GMYS decision maker and they are launching a new website. I will have to write up the code to link their site up with their fundraising site (thank goodness that I learned how to program all those years ago!). I also have to write up templates of announcing the fundraising site. Once I get these items completed I have a system that new NPOs will be able to follow!

Later today I have a networking event with “over 200 Miami professionals”. I’m looking forward to this event! The other thing is that last week I had an event and someone wanted to talk to me about the business. As it turned out he was sick from the Thursday until Sunday, so he contacted me this morning and set up a quick appointment for 6p right before the event! I’m excited to talk with him.

A prospect contacted me about changing her presentation tomorrow morning to Thursday. The wonderful thing about this meeting is that she wants me to present to her and 2 other people who are interested in starting a business. The cool thing is that one is from Jamaica and the other is from England! Thankfully my company operates in both countries and delivers to over 200. If you are open to learn more about the company, contact me!

Be Remarkable

Be Remarkable

With the invention of the internet there are so many courses on any subject you could ever imagine. There are so many ways you can connect with people. And so many opportunities to be had. No matter what you decide on: better yourself, open yourself, believe in yourself, and pick yourself!

There is no one else exactly like you on the planet. Be the Best Person you can be everyday and start moving towards what truly makes you happy… some day it may become your primary income!

 

Today a dietitian and 2 vets called about my opportunity. I’m happy there are business owners who see the benefit of supplementing their business with network marketing. I enjoy helping them succeed, knowing that they promote products and services that Build a Better Community!

Take a Leap to the Better Bowl

Take a Leap to the Better Bowl

With yesterday’s post hopefully you stopped to take stock of your life and your feelings. Do you feel fulfilled with what you are doing for work? At the end of the day, do you feel like you made a difference in someone else’s life? Do you wish you had more in life? More time? More money? More freedom?

I chose this picture because it depicts society. The small bowl is overcrowded and limiting while the big bowl has only a few. Wouldn’t you want to switch to the bigger bowl?

A study by the World Institute for Development Economics Research at United Nations University reported that the richest 1% of adults alone owned 40% of global assets in the year 2000, and that the richest 10% of adults accounted for 85% of the world total. With that said Why do people listen to those around them who try to stop them? Getting a good education and finding a job isn’t working anymore. Don’t you think it might be better to do something different?

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE

Every time I hear the song Defying Gravity from Wicked the Musical I cry when she states:

I’m through with playing by the rules
Of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

I’m through accepting limits
‘Cuz someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I’ll never know!

She reached to point to say No I need to do what I want to do and see if it will be better for me. These 2 parts resonate with me. And gives me strength.

Why don’t you take that leap? Is it because a part of you needs proof that you can be great? Why don’t you turn your thoughts around to take the leap because what you are currently doing hasn’t caused something great to happen? Whether the leap is to quit your job, start a network marketing opportunity, perform with a dance class, write a book, talk to that person you like. Regret should only occur when you fail to act. Think of it, if you act and it doesn’t work out you are a step closer to your goal. You know what not to do, or that there is better out there for you.

WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

Are you a person who needs to wait and see? I think Dr Seuss said it Best in the book Oh the Places You’ll Go:

You can get so confused
that you’ll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…

…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.

NO!
That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape
all that waiting and staying.
You’ll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.

Dr Seuss at the end of the book says:

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3 / 4 percent guaranteed.)

KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

… you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!

Believe in yourself and take action! Jump to the Big Bowl! 

Be Yourself – Your True Self

Standard
Be Yourself – Your True Self

I love this quote. The world will try to change you into someone else –  have you ever had a dream, but didn’t follow it because you heard “It would be wrong”, “that’s not how the world works”, or “stop being a dreamer”. I’ve seen the looks of “you poor thing, that will never work” or “I don’t want you to get hurt”.

Don’t let them – Be yourself, follow your dreams, Proudly Show Your Brilliance

There is only one you with your strengths, weaknesses, experiences and dreams. There has been no one like you since before the dawn of time and will never be another like you to the end of time. You are truly Amazing and the world is a Better Place because you are in it.

I think the world would be a much better, more interesting place if everyone had the courage to contribute their Brilliance.

I’m watching the movie The Mummy (one of my favorite shows). A scene that always gets me is when she is upset that the Bembridge Scholars had rejected her application. This saddens me as so many people will see themselves as “not enough” and will give up. Could you imagine a world without Dr Seuss? Theodore Geisel was rejected 27 times. How about Judy Bloom or J.K. Rowling? Walt Disney? Oprah? Thomas Edison? Steve Jobs? Bill Gates? Albert Einstein? Steven Spielberg?

Seth Godin stated “Reject the tyranny of being picked: pick yourself” Are you going to let someone stop you? Or are you going to decide to Be Yourself?

Take that Bembridge  Scholars!
