My big dream is to build a self-sustaining ecosystem of hope and empowerment before I die.
Here’s a sketched map of the workings.
(Picture of sketch)
To start, there are for-profit components (they’re actually public-benefit components) and non-profit components.
Public benefit organizations are… orgs operating for the sole purpose of making a profit, however, that profit (or a % of the profit) is used for a public benefit.
Non profit organizations are… orgs operating for the sole purpose of a public service.
My dream is to use my past experience of running for-profit companies to build profit generating organizations under the Quietly Working umbrella, where 100% of profits will support the non profit efforts under the Quietly Working Foundation umbrella. For my dream to be complete, all of these organizations will need to be able to operate successfully without my involvement, so when I die, they will continue.
Here’s a breakdown of the organizations I have planned and how they fit into this ecosystem.
