I’m So Excited!! A Challenge I’ve Been Wanting

I’m so EXCITED that the crowdfunding campaign I’m working on has passed the $1,000 mark. This may not seem like much but this is a BIG DEAL to me for two reasons.

First of all the campaign is for The Grassroots Oasis, a new event space for progressive grassroots organizing, local music and art in San Diego. These are all close to my heart and I really hope this space sticks around for many years and give San Diego the resources to be a shining example of how banding together a community can create progressive sustainable change.

Second, this is a chance I’ve been waiting for to prove that I can be a great fundraiser. Years ago I created the Investing In Women Grant program and for 3 consecutive years awarded micro grants of $500, to women business owners in the USA. A few years after that I worked at the Women’s Resource Center in Oceanside and closely watched the woman in charge of fundraising. Her work was so rewarding, fun and just a little challenging that I found myself often wishing to have that same experience. Now I’m working on a campaign and if it’s succesful hoping to use that as a door into a salaried fundraising career.

I’ll post another update when we hit the $3,000 mark. šŸ™‚

If you’d like to learn more about this campaign or just love me so much you want to contribute already than visit http://igg.me/at/go-sd. Our end goal is $16,000 which I’ve seen to be an achievable amount for this type of campaign.

Woman Overcomes Fear By Being Set on Fire and Flying!

We don’t learn limiting beliefs until we’re older. Why else would we bother learning to walk or memorizing a whole language? If you’ve ever had a stroke or tried to learn a new language you get this!

Why do we not follow through on our greatest ambitions? Because we can. Ā It’s easy to keep yourself from ever achieving your dreams by allowing fear, doubt and socially constructed ideas stop you from trying or trying very hard. That’s why I’m impressed with people likeĀ Kalah Ruth. This woman not only overcame her fears, but she is helping others do the same.

She used to be afraid to fly, but through coaching she let go of her limiting beliefs and took to the skies. “I used to be afraid to fly! Over the past year I have completed a personal development course to overcome my fears and understand my emotions. I have since co-piloted a helicopter and flew down a zip line while being set on fire. I was only able to do these things because I learned how to clear limiting beliefs and changed my unhealthy habits.

Now she wants to help others live their dream by becoming a coach like the one who helped her. Check out her campaign to become a certified coach at Gofundme.com/l8o0kk. Please SHARE her campaign and if you can, support her financially.
