“How” and “Wow” – that is the question and the reaction we get when we talk to people about e-Partners in Giving.
The “How” is pretty standard: “How did you come up with that idea?”
• Other people have a different response altogether…“Wow! You REALLY quit your job to start your own business?”
This is definitely a crazy adventure for every member of the e-Partners in Giving Family, but once you step back and look at the whole picture, it doesn’t seem that “crazy” at all.
The concept of e-Partners in Giving is simple: Give people a safe and easy way to give back through charitable donations. Recently, we have taken that mission statement and made it genuinely radical: We want to help change the world – one donation at a time.
We truly feel like we have developed a business model that has the potential to have a profound social impact.
The “Wow” aspect – specifically the tremendous risk taken by some members of the e-Partners Family – is fairly easy to wrap your mind around as well.
When you discover a niche/opportunity in the market place – and believe in it as strongly as we do – taking the radical leap of faith is easy. (Whether that leap is quitting your job, investing your life savings, or simply saying, “I want to be a part of that.”)
It’s our passion about e-Partners in Giving that drives us and makes us unique.
Another part of the “Wow” aspect has been the conscious decision to take control of our lives – making a radical career change in order to do something that fuels the fire of our inner soul.
This excerpt from the book “Into The Wild” by Jon Krakuer captures exactly what we’re referring to: “So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future.”
Our “adventurous spirit” is currently riding an amazing roller coaster – one that has the potential of touching many different lives in many different ways.
We know that’s not much of a “story,” but if you would like to read more about the “How” – where the idea for e-Partners in Giving came from – stay tuned.
