We are forever on a journey of faith, of learning and of growth. We are Spiritual beings living a human existence. We will be tested; we have experiences that will push us to the limits, almost to a breaking point.

So many times in life we question what goes on around us and in our lives. We are challenged in almost every direction, from our jobs to relationships and from death to illnesses. At times, we may even feel like it is not even worth the effort.  We all have from time to time. We all question why we are here, we question our worth when we do not feel we are appreciated or valued by another. We question our beliefs, we question our abilities, and we question our strength when times are tough. We beat ourselves up for making what seems like a wrong choice, or bad decisions. These are all experiences teaching us valuable lessons to help us grow, embrace them for they are creating your strength for tomorrow.

It is alright to get upset when things are not going right, no one said that you had to be practical or prudent every second of every day. Just do not stay in that place, learn to acknowledge your emotions and embrace them … they are a part of you. Then release them and find out what you can learn from what the challenge was. We are forever learning as we grow.  Do not be so hard on yourself … you are doing the best you can.

Try to be happy.

Take a breath, a big deep breath. Now put your hand on your heart, you feel your heart beating, you feel your chest rising and falling. Remember this, as long as there is breath left in your body and your heart is still beating, you, my friend, have a purpose, and we need you.

So you are not confused there are three types of CrowdFunding:


Many people are racing to CrowdFunding from around the world.

Equity Crowdfunding for Business:

Realestate falls into this category and this is being regulated by the SEC. example:

Reward based CrowdFunding:

In return for backing a project, backers receive different rewards depending on the amount of funding they commit (defined by the business or entrepreneur behind the project) Example:

Donation based Crowdfunding:

It enables individuals to directly share their money with causes and projects that they feel strongly about and thereby empower others to create impact. Example:

Crowdfunding is not only about personal projects, giving or helping others. Crowdfunding could be your personal business receiving money from around the world and the donations will go to your project.

My project is helping Filipino students to better their lives by providing financial assistance to further their education. This is an extremely exciting project after observing their poverty first hand. Myself, I cannot change the world but I can make a small difference.


What would be your Crowdfunding project?

Let's change the world together one person at a time. Grow your personal financial portfolio while working on your own project.  This Crowdfunding is powerful and extremely exciting. Let's help ourselves. Let's help others. This is so exciting to help ourselves and others at the same time.
