Microgrants

This video, as adequate as it is, doesn’t hit the spot for how passionate I am about impacting the community. However, I must say it does come close. Very close. I firmly believe that in order for our communities to improve and prosper there must be a stand of responsible people that will engage in the work to make a significant difference in the lives of others. Don’t get me wrong, there is an equal part to play in each of us.

My point is that many have the heart to do good, yet may lack the skill to get the work done. Or the may have the heart and the skill, yet lack the navigational skills to bring them to a place of contentment with where they want to be in life. We all have a journey to take in life. By no means have I arrived. I press to be all HE desires for me to be. What intrigues me about this video is the good work taking place to help individuals with microgrants. Not loans, grants. The grants come along with coaching and mentoring too.

The work of Microgrants looks like a tremendous example of social enterprise. For more information about this effort click here.

I continue my quest to make an impact in this I love- Jacksonville, FL.

App Next Steps

This post may not mean much in the grand scheme of BlogX. However, I am committed to the process. Further, as a follow up to my kick-off yesterday I completed my business plan minutes ago.

This is key moving forward. I have been communicating via email with a potential seed investor (PSI) about the prototype. Fortunately, they appear to be attentive to what is possible. Much to my surprise I got an ask for my business plan.

I am not sure who said it…”if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” True statement. Even if you don’t know all the details a guide is better than not having one. This will help to navigate your thoughts and actions. Plans help to add structure to our ideas. The effort put into it is a sign of your commitment to the project. I look forward to hearing back from the PSI.

I hope to be able to share more exciting news as it relates to the development of my app.

Even if my plan is rejected, I made the attempt. This is what counts right?

Kicking Off The Campaign

Today is the day that I kick off my campaign to raise the necessary funds to build my app.

Earlier this year I participated in a business competition where I pitched my idea about a web-based/mobile app. My idea was not selected to place nor did I win. However, my desire to build and launch an app remains. My blog is one of the platforms I am using to get the word out about the app.

Exactly what will the app do? Motivate and inspire people to turn their frustrations into assets. This app will be one of the largest pick-me-up-when-I’m-down tools you have ever seen. Yep, and it will be all right in your pocket. So buy a square today and let’s help change lives.
