For the last 4 years, I’ve been living and breathing the Lean Startup culture, meeting folks through 8150.co and a vast array of other places. Getting stuff done and selling services through platforms like Fiverr, Mechanical Turk, Upwork. Then I go on another Habitat for Humanity build (It has been awhile, love it). Meet a bunch of great, fellow Americans, making a difference in one family’s lives. We built the house, mission accomplished!
But I look at the family budget. I get to know Tabs, the father of the family, suffering from Diabetes, can’t do the traditional work of a man his age in the village. He has English skills, has a fairly modern Android phone. This guy could do Fiverr! My fellow travelers have no idea what I’m talking about; they don’t know what Fiverr is, can’t see what I see. So I must reach out to my entrepreneurial friends and colleagues. Please give my GoFundMe Campaign a look!
- Social Media Love, Likes, and Shares
- Help Tabs find great service offerings on Fiverr and help marketing them
- Still, need a few contributions to implement the full plan
I’m also kicking my consulting practice up a notch. Starting to reach out more through LinkedIn. I share a bit of my 30-year experience working with outsourcing teams here in the article: Vendor Assessment with the Joel Test.
