Why were you inspired to do this?
In early 2005 I found myself locked in a hotel room for 48 hours with a dear friend trying to figure out the meaning of my life. I listed all the things I had achieved in my life then listed all the things I wanted to do next. By the end of the weekend, every square inch of the room was covered with “my life list!” The process was inspiring!
What were 3 things you did to make this happen?
Research – I discussed the merits of my idea with friends and began looking for life list resources and was surprised to see such a limited offering for what he thought to be a dynamic process.
Enrolled partners – I considered people I knew who could help me make my idea a viable business. My partners, Bill and Joe both bring strong passion and skills to making the business a reality.
Execute plan – Once we had the team in place the next step was completing our website and finishing our business plan so we could explain our goals for the business to potential investors. Think BIG!
How did you feel once you had accomplished this?
We launched the My Life List beta website on May 1st 2008. Having worked on this vision over the last 3 years there have been many highs and lows. It is quite overwhelming to see a live product in place with a strong team supporting the future goals of the company. Each day we move forward to execute the plan I’m so excited at the possibility for this business. I see this as an amazing opportunity to apply my energy and enthusiasm for life experiences to yield high potential profits and work in the area of my greatest passion. Most importantly, we've created a platform that makes a difference in people's lives!
Additional notes and tips:
Vision yourself doing a speech and talking about what the business is and how it works. It will help you make it a reality. Surround yourself with experts that compliment your skill sets… Have fun!
