“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Damn, Howard Thurman, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Thurman is giving us permission. Permission to do the things we make excuses not to do. It’s a reminder that our best contribution to the world is that passion and enthusiasm you have when you truly love what you do. That nervous anticipation you feel in your gut when you know you’re on the right track.
It doesn’t come down to skill or experience, it comes down to desire. Hard work. Hustle. It’s with these qualities that we’re truly able to discover what we love, what we’re best at, and what matters most.
We all have something that makes us come alive. Maybe you want to start your own coaching business. Maybe you have a social business or nonprofit in mind. Maybe you want to sell hand-made quilts. Whatever it is, with the right tools and that passion you hold within, you can make it happen.
So for you, and for everyone else with an idea, a vision, a dream demanding to be explored, I couldn’t be happier to announce my latest venture, Launch.
Launch is an all-inclusive branding package designed for you – when you’re ready – to take one giant step toward making your dream – whatever it is – a reality.
You may not have all the details ironed out. But you know you’re ready. You understand the value of the investment. You’re ready to take the leap – and you’re ready to partner with a team of entrepreneurial brand experts that’ll help you put together the pieces and prepare for lift-off.
So what’s included?
- Our Understanding Your Branding Workshop in Nashville (travel & accommodations included)
- Custom logo design for your new business
- Memorable and engaging website
- Two dynamic pieces of print collateral (business cards, snazzy brochure, etc.)
- “Launch plan” to help you navigate the first 12 months of your new venture
Building a strong relationship and partnership with each client is extremely important to us. We’ll fly you to Nashville, put you up for a night, take you out for drinks, and most importantly, get a lot of work done. From there, we’ll work with you on putting everything together you need to enter the marketplace as a new company.
Our focus is of course on building successful businesses, but more importantly, it’s in working with individuals who are highly motivated, ready to work hard, and are willing to do whatever it takes.
Entrepreneurship takes courage. It’s one thing to have an idea, but it’s a totally different ballgame when you believe in an idea so much that you’re willing to take risks. Big risks. Financial risks. Relational risks. To make your idea happen.
If this sounds like you. If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of starting a business. There is no better time than now. I’m passionate about working with folks like you, as is our entire team at Proof. I promise you will not find a group of people more excited and more ready to help you in bringing your idea, your vision, your passion, to life.
So I encourage you to head over to the LAUNCH website for more information. And, if it sounds compelling, fill out the application and let’s start a conversation. It may just be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.
Oh, and one more thing. To celebrate the kick-off of Launch, we’re giving away one free Launch package to an aspiring entrepreneur. Submit your application by June 1st to be in the running. That’s right, if you’ve ever even considered taking the leap, there’s no better time than now.
This announcement has been a long time coming. And I couldn’t be more excited. I look forward to joining many of you on your own paths of turning passion into profit and dreams into reality.
(Very special thanks to everyone who helped in launching Launch: Brandon Gnetz, Rob Williams, Sam Davidson, Micah Smith, Kate Hall. And everyone who listened to me brainstorm about this over beers for the past six months. You guys rock!)
