Our small team with huge talent is gearing up to unleash our FundRazr application to the world. We believe FundRazr can change the face of fundraising and fee payments in social networks. This may seem like a bold statement but it’s boldness that changes attitudes, industries and trends. As Steve Jobs, a true visionary of our time, states:
- “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”
Since our time is limited and we have much to do in order to change the game here at ConnectionPoint Systems I’ll keep this brief. I was truly touched last week when Daryl and I reached out to our friends to become a fan of FundRazr. We needed just 100 fans of our Facebook application page to allow us to gain the vanity URL that we can use to link to our application in all business dealings. In less than 24 hours the message I sent out to 100 of my friends to take 5 seconds to support us and become a fan had an 85% response rate – that’s huge. Those of you who did this for us are superstars. Daryl and Agathe also had their friends come on board and before we knew it we had over 100 fans and a fancy new URL – www.facebook.com/fundrazr – check it out now if you haven’t already.
This only amplified the power of social networks to me, and the viral nature of it that allows you to share, engage and connect in more ways than one can imagine in no time at all. I think this is summed up perfectly in this rather amazing video `Did you know’.
It manages to encapsulate some incredible facts in less than 5 minutes including just how much impact technology is having on the world, how dramatically the population is changing and much more. It finishes with the question `So what does this all mean?’
In my personal opinion, this means that everything we think we know and understand today will look entirely different tomorrow, this may seem extreme but seriously watch the video and acknowledge that this also means whatever you think is impossible is in fact truly possible. So continue to think beyond today, beyond the confines of your every day world to imagine the unimaginable. Dare to be different, to change the game and to make positive change in our world. Dare to dream like you did when you were a kid, nobody told you to stop did they?
On a much less grandiose note, let me know if you wish to be part of our closed beta launch, especially if you organise or manage a club, team, group or cause! firstname.lastname@example.org
