Sharing Stories: What Will It Take?

When change happens, it is not because one spokesperson is telling the story of one group. Change happens when everyone’s stories of everyday life are… Continue reading


Hello!

These days we all hear a lot about the power of telling your story - the story of the work you are doing, and why that matters.

And while those stories of our own successes are important, it will take more than those individual stories to create the world we all want. It will take the tsunami of stories of the differences each of us is making, wherever we live or work.

This week, Rebecca Hurd continues her exploration into what happens when we all share each other’s stories:

What would it take to gather and share stories of what works? What would it make possible for everyone around the world if there were a searchable repository of those stories - an archive where any of us could learn and apply what works, in our own circumstances - and then share THAT with everyone, too?

We know Rebecca's questions and ideas will get your creative juices flowing. And we can't wait to hear what that makes possible for you!


As always, we deeply appreciate the work you are doing to bring out the very best in our world.

GroupThe BIG Discussion : November 5th

Continue reading


Hello!

Have you ever wondered what it would take for your organization’s decision-making to reflect the world you want to see?

Well, you're not alone. We've been wondering the same thing!

Next week, we'll be considering that question with leaders in two forward-thinking organizations who see themselves as part of a movement vs just an organization or business. Put those dates on your calendar - you will not want to miss these conversations!

And then on November 5th, our own board will have a monumental discussion of what that means for Creating the Future. We know that we do not have to do things the way they've always been done. But then what does that mean we should do instead?

We want your thoughts and ideas about all of this, which is why we are inviting you to join us for these discussions. (To learn how to join in and actually discuss along with us, click at the links above.)


As always, we deeply appreciate the work you are doing to bring out the very best in our world.

5 Crowdfunding Lessons

Are you thinking about crowdfunding for your business or community effort? These 5 lessons from our own successful campaign could make the difference between success and disappointment. Continue reading


Hello!

In the past few weeks we've spoken to people from 3 different businesses and community groups, who were blaming themselves for disappointing crowdfunding results. "Other people raise tons of money. Why didn’t we?"

Not surprisingly, crowdfunding success is first about the fundamentals. From there, there are tips and tricks that can help boost your success. You’ll find both at this week’s post.

Here’s what we can tell you for sure: Done well, crowdfunding is about way more than money. It’s about building community. And that alone can lead to all kinds of success.

So if you are thinking of putting your toes in the crowdfunding waters, we hope these easy-to-implement strategies encourage you to dive in!


With deep appreciation for the work you are doing to create a better world,
