I started 2011 owning and operating the real estate company I started in 2006. I lived in Victoria BC. I had a random cool idea for raising some money for charity. The main things I was working on were company culture, systems for the business, and reintegrating back into daily life after traveling for almost all of 2010. It was time to settle back in and get down to work.
Now it’s 2012.
I don’t own the company anymore. I live in Central America. That idea to raise some money for charity has turned into an online fundraising platform that has funded 18 schools in 6 countries. A friend and I came up with the Early Entrepreneurs Experiment, which has launched in 3 countries, raised tens of thousands of dollars and taught hundreds kids to be social entrepreneurs. Now the main plans are to 1) finish the platform for individuals and non-profits to raise millions of dollars for legitimate and world enhancing projects, 2) to launch the Early Entrepreneurs Experiment world wide and be accepted into general curriculum – teaching kids to be entrepreneurs and how to change the world for the better through business, and 3) to film a ridiculously cool documentary made up of 12 separate YouTube size episodes highlighting amazing and world changing work being done by friends of mine in Kenya, India, and Cambodia – it will be a mix of adventure travel, extreme sport feel, and giving on a massive scale – Adventure Philanthropy.
What the F happened?
Happy New Year.
