Cheerleader Teams Always Do Well With a Car Wash Fundraiser

There are a lot of advantages to cheerleading squads that other sports simply don’t enjoy. I guess that goes without saying, especially in high-school, but I would submit to you that the same applies for those in college – let me explain and give you a real life example here if I might.

Over the years, I’ve participated and planned many car wash fundraisers. It started in High School as I was the president of many clubs on campus and Senior Class President also. One thing we always needed more of in our clubs and organizations was money – there was never enough for our unquenchable thirst for grandiose events. In those days I had a business washing cars, boats and aircraft, mobile car washing and we used the equipment to clean cars at those fundraisers. Eventually, we got really good at organizing them and making a decent amount of money.

Still, we could never make as much as the cheerleading squad for obvious reasons. First, they could out sell us 3:1 in pre-sale car wash fundraising tickets and during the day of the event they’d pull cars off the street in droves with a simple sign “Cheerleader Car Wash” and a couple of girls on the corner in bathing suits. Hey, that’s just not fair, but that’s life. Yes, a definite advantage indeed. Needless to say, if you are a cheerleader parent or student advisor and your squad needs money – a fundraiser of this type is quite easy to hold and quite apropos for the summer months.

The other day, I was talking to a mom at Starbucks who had a daughter who made the cheerleading squad in high school for the next calendar year. Her sister was a cheerleader a few years back at that same school and the mom remembered how expensive it was for cheerleader camp, competitions, uniforms, and travel expenses, and the mom really didn’t want to go through that one again, nor did she want to be assigned duty at “another damn bake sale” I think were her exact words. I explained the car wash fundraising strategy and how they could do pre-sale tickets, and use a busy corner to host the endeavor.

She did remember doing at least one fundraiser of that type a few years back and thought it was fun, but said she remembered getting sunburn, and I explained with proper planning no one has to get burned and her daughter’s squad could make the money they so desperately needed. Please consider all this and think on it.

Living Life On Purpose – Easier Than You Think

People often contact me to discover their purpose for this life. This profound question has been kicked around for eons, centuries with psychics, fortune tellers and in many conversations. However, your purpose isn’t the way the majority of people think. You may have asked yourself this question a million times or not. In those deep philosophical conversations, this question seems to pop up over and over again.

Everyone has a take on this contemplation or not. Some like to contemplate it like they may contemplate their navel, a mole, or a bunion. Like… what is this all about? Why do I have this? Is there a deeper meaning to my navel, my mole, or my whatever? Maybe there is no deeper meaning you might muse. Or maybe your body is drawing your attention out of your computer/brain to connect with your body? Could be!

Back to the question at hand… What is the purpose of life or, in fact, what is the purpose of my life? Maybe there is more than only one purpose. Maybe there is a plethora of purposes.

Purposes to contemplate or activate:

How do I participate in life?
Am I fully present in what I am doing?
Am I “out-of-body” co-existing in another dimension?
Am I in the correct profession for me? That’s right..correct, not right!
Do I like my life?
Do I like my relationships?
Do I know the difference between like and love or romance?
Do I really know what love means or Tina’s song..”What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Do I feel good about my Self?
Do I like my Self?
If I don’t, why don’t I like my Self?
Do I have many limitations going on in my computer/brain?
Do I know the real me?
Is the real me buried deep underneath the rubble of life?
Or, is the real me about to burst forth?
Is there more than one purpose in life?

The 16th question leaves room for expansion… and you can ask a million questions, as you discover more about who you are. Why would there be only one purpose to life? You are multi-dimensional, so why not embrace having more than one purpose? How about having a plethora of purposes? Here are some ideas:

Purposes of life:

Being a great friend to Self.
Being a great friend to friends.
Living my life consciously,
Living my best life!
Living fully engage in each moment
Getting involved in every aspect of my life.
Avoid giving my power away.
Laugh at my Self.
Avoid taking other people or my self seriously… if you do, go live on Sirius.
Allow your Self to experience each moment.
Live each day as if it were the first day of your life.
Be impressed by the people you have brought into your life to learn about your Self.
Be impressed with your Self.
If you are creating lots of trauma and drama, write a new script and get off this traumatic reality show.
Live your reality from your Heart.
Choose role models who are real role models vs following indoctrination and conditioning.
Get “it’… you have many purposes.

In the final analysis, your purpose for an in-body experience is for mental, emotional and spiritual growth. While this may not sound profound it is the most profound purpose for your eternal life. How you create your mental, emotional and spiritual growth is where you can put your unique footprint.

Now be creative, be clever, write down all the ways you can fulfill your purposes. Begin to create your life with these purposes in your heart each and every day. When someone asks you… “What is your purpose?” Ask them… “Which one do you want me to talk about? Go out and be on purpose, with your purpose to create your mental, emotional and spiritual growth!

Even though the digital platform is flooded with all kinds of reading material, journals can bring in a lot of revenue through a variety of channels. Journal publishing services in particular have a lot to contribute to the spectrum of content distribution this year.

Why Journals for 2018?

Looking at journals as a medium of content propagation and educational publishing, there are many benefits. First of all the feasibility of sending journals in a subscription based business model to audiences is very high. Subscription based businesses are quite the trend nowadays owing to their economical aspect and direct delivery to subscribers.

Choosing suitable distribution channels

Innovative Mindset in Society Is America Losing the Edge in Innovation?

Is America losing the edge in innovation? How can this be? Where did we go wrong? What happened? Could it be that we’ve changed our education system and society in a way that gives less incentive to innovators? That would be a travesty since our entire national identity is in part founded on the ‘can do attitude’. Let’s discuss this briefly and you tell me if you see it too.

Are we losing our ability to think creatively and innovatively solve problems? I believe so. We also seem to be losing self-reliance, no need to solve problems – all the problems have already been solved. No need to think, just look up the answer on Google. Suddenly, there is no accountability or integrity – passing off copied ideas and plagiarism for innovation.

Look, I am not Luddite, and I don’t live in a cave, I know there is innovation out there – it’s just that I see an ocean of imitation and very few pearls of innovation in comparison. Everyone is busy liking, friending and forwarding – searching online for the daily highlighted viral original concepts rather than coming up with new ideas themselves. Maybe that instant gratification of a dopamine blast is as good as that “Ah-Ha Moment” when you solve a problem or when the light-bulb of innovation dings that bell inside your brain?

There seems to be a deep desire among members of our society to be creative and innovative, just as companies know there is a distinct advantage to the having a robust Research and Development Department and maintaining an innovative edge in their sector. Perhaps that’s why everyone and their brother claims to be an Innovation Expert Consultant. It’s rather hilarious how many of these ‘innovation coaches’ promise to teach us how to innovate, yet, I dare to ask; how many of them have original thoughts themselves. Is this yet another case of; ‘those who can’t teach’.

As an innovator myself, I find it amazing what is passed off as creative or innovative in this day and age. I guess we all have free speech in America and one is free to call themselves an innovator if they wish without any proof or examples of creativity of innovative attributes – but that doesn’t make it so. There is no honor in continuing this façade, we are only hurting ourselves and we cannot fix the problem until we address the reality and the problem here. Do you see it too? What should we do? Please consider all this and think on it.

3 Great Benefits of Using an Electric Skateboard

The electric skateboard is very versatile, portable, and easy to ride with minimal effort. Also, they are an environmentally friendly way to travel. Let’s take a look at a few of the positives of having an electric skateboard:

Use less effort

With no need to constantly push, you are less likely to get worn out after traveling across town. The travel distance for a single charge of the battery can vary with the different models, but they do have the potential go as far as 25 miles or more. Also, they are just as easy to charge between each use as a smartphone or similar device. Because there is no need to use a lot of effort, you won’t feel worn out even after making a relatively long trip.

A further great thing is the fact they are built with rubberized, wide wheels that give a very reliable grip that leads to a smooth and comfortable ride.

Control the speed

It is possible to have a lot of control over the speed of the electric skateboard. For instance, the conventional model has the potential to go extremely fast downhill, while its flat speed over a sidewalk is only as fast as your leg power. The majority of the electric models give the option to travel at a steady speed, which can be in the region of 11 MPH. There speed will stay consistent on both a flat road and a hill with an incline that has an angle of about 15 degrees. Also, with the ability to travel at a consist speed it will be easy to arrive at a planned destination on time. Similar to having more control over the speed of the skateboard, there is also the option to slow it down and even use a reliable braking system.

Electric or manual

The electric skateboard is a highly versatile product and often gives the option to switch between an electric and manual unit. For instance, the ability to perform tricks at a skate park is likely to be a lot easier with the manual push style mode. After the fun action at the park, the electric feature can be reactivated to make the trip home faster and easier.

Overall, the electric skateboard is a lot of fun and is a great way to really embrace the future of this activity. Also, with the more leisurely way to travel, there is a greater opportunity to appreciate a journey and take in the local surroundings.
