Week 13: Grassroots

UPDATE:
Everything we do is grassroots. Our efforts are done from passion. We don’t get paid. Dream Big has always been a personal endeavor since the inception during my college years. From the time my Creator woke me up in the middle of the night and put this in my

Week 12: 3rd Party Vendors

Week 12: 3rd Party Vendors

UPDATE:
Since the beginning of time, we’ve always been 3rd party vendors. Our relationship with schools have never been “official” business until after a few weeks after the start of school. It’s not the best business model, so I don’t recommend it. We’ve just always had great people helping us.

Week 11: Last Worst Decision

Week 11: Last Worst Decision

UPDATE:
With all the storms down south and east, hurricanes can’t be controlled. I think of the devastation that couldn’t be stopped. Mother Nature is no joke. There’s no money or negotiating. However, our local disaster could have been prevented.

Not only am I deleting

Week 8 – Continue the Drive

UPDATE:
This week has been a struggle. We migrated completely to SSL on the website, and more problems arise. Now, the donation function won’t work. Our operations of running this campaign with fundraising and creating programs at the same time is difficult. However, I believe the pain is worth the

Week 7 – Millions and Billions

Week 7 – Millions and Billions

UPDATE:
My bad for missing week 6. I told you that these were real-time journals and sometimes I just don’t have the time if I’m not intentional. That’s why planning is so important. Hopefully, we won’t miss anymore- but no promises.
The last couple of weeks were talking to folks

Week 4 – Putting it on Paper

Week 4 – Putting it on Paper

UPDATE:
Every great plan has been documented on paper. Without documentation, the plan doesn’t exist. In some circles, there will be some that may view it as a lack of fortitude. For anyone that’s serious about accomplishing a task, the plan requires a strategy to be laid out, fleshed out,
