A mind expansion-oriented professional, with benevolent leanings and public-spirited interests, describes an evolutionary entrepreneur. Well, at least that is my definition.
There are countless individuals around the world who have reached a level of success and wish they could do something of value for society, but don’t know where to begin. They are stumped thinking, erroneously, that they need vast financial resources like Melinda and Bill Gates to make a huge impact. I was one of them.
In 2003 I founded a 501 (c) (3) non-profit with the mission of raising public awareness about the value of volunteering and to provide opportunities for service to homeless and underserved populations. We sent volunteers around the world to build houses, classrooms, churches, work in orphanages and teach. We sponsored volunteers to Thailand after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and provided computers for schools that were devastated after hurricanes Rita and Katrina.
Volunteers contribute sweat equity and raise their own funding to participate in overseas service trips. Additionally they offer an amount for the purchase of local supplies to be used for the reconstruction, building or clean up project.
The agency’s administrative costs and overhead are covered by private contributions. The expenses are minimal since most of what the organization does is possible through donated office space, utilities, office equipment and supplies. In the eyes of the world, this effort is insignificant but in the eyes of each participant and beneficiary, these are life-changing experiences. The non-profit is currently dormant as a result of the financial crisis in 2008.
I thrive on helping people in whatever way I can. For me, it is in service to others that I expand, evolve and experience true unconditional love. I pondered what else I could be doing to balance my philanthropic heart and passion for financial success.
In my quest, I came across individuals that have been life changing. Their understanding (look for my next blog on this topic) of success is mind-boggling. More importantly, their messages rings true to me. These are progressive masters and thinkers who live unconventional lives with passion, peace and purpose. I’d like to share some of them with you.
BRUCE LIPTON & GREGG BRADEN – BE THE RIPPLE THAT TURNS THE TIDE
As if on cue and just when I was about to give up my search for the perfect career, one that allows me time freedom, financial success, mobility to work anywhere in the world and the ability to help others, that’s when I found SFM and DEA (check out this or any of the links on this page).
As an affiliate and working with evolutionary masterminds has changed how I view the world. I have direction. I have clarity. My thinking has expanded exponentially. I can be a financially successful professional and philanthropist working smarter. I have more fun, play more and work less. Most importantly, I can reach and help far larger numbers of people with my laptop through digital marketing. I’m no longer tied to an old model of what success is. In the process I’m living my dream life. I travel as long and as far as I want while growing my business and assisting others create their lifestyles, too. I’m an evolutionary entrepreneur.
Wishing you success in all your endeavors!
