In this post, I just want to let you know that I failed in 2013. In 2014, I don’t want to fail again. This is my public declaration. Enjoy! xo

I Want to Go MAD
I failed in 2013 because the one thing I wanted to do more than anything else did not get done.
In 2013, I wanted to travel to some country in Asia and live with the orphans there for a few days. My intention was to use that experience to tell their stories in the hopes of raising awareness about their condition. Needless to say, I didn’t do it.
I didn’t do it because I was too busy chasing after money.
I was doing business all year and I didn’t do the one thing that I wanted to do. I don’t want the same thing to happen in 2014. I want 2014 to be a year where I can look back and say that I made a difference for orphans.
That’s why I want to Go MAD.
When I say I want to Go MAD, I don’t mean I literally want to lose my mind. I mean that I want to Go Make a Difference.
Instead of talking about making a difference; instead of thinking about making a difference; instead of hoping I’m making a difference, I just want to Go MAD. I just want to GO Make a Difference.
I have 1 mission. Live with orphans in a different country for a few days and use that experience to bring awareness to them.
I have one rule only. No donations.
If anybody sees what I am doing and feels inclined to support me in anyway, I wholeheartedly receive that support.
But I will not go out of my way to ask for money. I fully intend to fund this completely from my personal resources.
Instead of asking for money or asking for donations, I have a better solution. In my future blog posts, I will recommend certain products and services to you. Just know that every time you purchase something I recommend, you are helping me to be able to Go MAD. By buying, you are helping me fulfill this mission of going to make a difference.
Keep in mind that I am not a very subtle person. If I think that something is going to be helpful to you, I will tell you to go and buy it. I am not going to hint. I am not going to suggest, I’m just going to say “this is good, go get it” that’s kind of my approach.
I have one timeline. 3 months. I don’t want this to drag on. I don’t want to act like I have all the time in the world. By April 2014, I should be able to say “mission accomplished”.
I don’t know whether this plan will work. What I do know, is that I need you. I need your help. I need your support. I need your criticism. I need your feedback. I need your wisdom. I need everything you’ve got. I need you to go on this journey with me.
There is nobody in this world that has accomplished anything of any consequence on their own. All I ask you to do right now is to subscribe for updates via email (see below).
Let’s do this.
