Fundraisers, Are You Ready? Five Tips For a Successful Race Day Fundraising Event

Back in 1977, Billy Starr hopped on his bicycle and went for a ride. His mother had just died from melanoma and pushing the limits of the physical body helped Starr grieve the loss of his mother.

On one rather strenuous ride, Starr had an idea. He and his friends would make a weekend of cycling, but instead of just pushing their physical and mental limits, their pedaling efforts would go to raise money for cancer.

Starr had found a deeper purpose in life. It was now time for him to live intentionally and embrace it.

How to Overcome Resistance and Move Forward in Your Life When You Don’t Have a Trampoline

I stare at a blank screen, my fingers hovering over ASDFJKL;. The cursor taunts me with its consistent blink, blink, blink.

Resistance… the plague which stops creators from creating, stops writers from writing, stops changemakers from changing, and stops entrepreneurs from launching.

What IS Your Purpose? There Can Be More Than One, Right?

The key to knowing your purpose is to believe you have one. We all have a purpose and sometimes the purpose is to grow. As long as you are growing as a person, you are on the purpose path.

My path to purpose was carved even before I could properly spell purpose as a child when I quit school at the age of 5.

Knowing school wasn’t for me was a affirmation that I needed to pay attention to every single thing I am going to do because it is going to be different. Do you have to be different to become consciously aware of your purpose? No. It’s a great thing that we’re all born different, saves us a lot of time!

Most people are afraid, afraid to speak their minds simply because it’s different to popular opinion.

Not going to school gave me the luxury of experimenting, spending more than eight hours of the day exploring what I’m passionate about or rather, what gets me excited. Of course I wasn’t left off the hook by my parents, so I had to learn grade 10 textbooks without learning anything formally even once. This was one of the defining moments for my purpose; I never quit education and I wasn’t about to start now. Taking this exam and applying to college really made me question what my purpose was in order to determine which course to take up.
