Projects: Potentially perfect launching pads for building a better-feeling career.

I’m all for using imagination, but it’s not great for testing how something feeels in reality. So if you want a better-feeling career but are stuck, start a project. And if you don’t have a project calling your name, work on someone else’s that you’re curious about—you just might get hooked or get ideas of your own.

My project of writing a book lead to this website and the projects below that I’m birthing soon; I foresee the community center keeping me busy for decades…

A COMMUNITY CENTER FOR PUBLIC SERVICE STORYTELLING + SMALL BUSINESS MARKETING and DEVELOPMENT:

I’ve dreamed off and on about running a community center since I was a teenager. Now, it’s time for that dream to come to life. I’m launching it online and am planning on bringing people together in person in community-based venues.

WHAT:
The center’s mission is to promote worker welfare in America. More specifically, it will strive to help existing U.S.-based small business owners make more money and build wealth, and help aspiring business owners—particularly career changers over 40—get started in that direction. It will also strive to help people gain and stay in good health (and not lose wages due to illness), and to improve working conditions for exploited U.S. workers.

HOW:
The center plans to meet its mission through small business marketing—with a focus on businesses in food, fashion, and health and wealth creation—and by offering low-cost information products and in-person trainings to help aspiring business owners get started, and to connect them with health- and wealth-building resources, whether people, trainings or information. The center will strive to promote worker welfare more generally by creating advertising campaigns to engage consumers to leverage their spending power to “encourage” big businesses with bad practices to reform.

WHO:
The center hopes to attract people who are passionate, or curious, about telling stories for the purpose of uniting people and improving lives, people who are intent on, or considering, improving their own lives through small business ownership, and people who are keen on connecting with other people in person—across cultures and generations—to socialize, break bread, grapple with issues and/or learn new skills.
