Today I finally start my “Startup Weekend Mission.” A grueling 3 month journey I have crafted to facilitate a Startup Weekend event every week in a different city around the world.
The motto for this journey is: Learn. Design. Empower.
The ultimate goal is to find new ways to empower the world. My approach is to first learn as much as possible. Learn about best practices, learn about diversities in culture and how that affects change and entrepreneurship, then learn about myself and how I can have the most impact on this world. Once we are able to know what it takes to design the strongest communities, this will lead us to be able to empower this next generation to truly change the world.
I am not sure how you truly prep for a journey like this and I have no idea where this will lead me after. Maybe I will help connect entrepreneurs that start the next Facebook, maybe I will come up with my own idea to change the world or maybe I will just come back and nothing will have changed. All I know is that I am ready to take this leap of faith because I do believe something big will come out of it. I feel as if I do need to take some action to create my own destiny and this journey will help answer some of those major “meaning of life” questions I have.
Today I start in Jacksonville, Florida. I will Learn, Design and Empower that community. I hope the rest of the world is ready! 😉 Feel free to join me on this journey and wish me luck!
