Unveiled : How I can operate with (just) 1,500 / month
This is a good question, and we have to clarify it so people trust that their investment is put to good, efficient use.
It’s not my favorite, but for a while I can function at this amount, until financial engines kick off and I can work with more comfort and flexibility.
Many middle class earners in project development positions as myself have incomes of $/€ 4-10,000 per month, and arrange their living situations according to family, buzy city life and the need for regeneration… a calm quality office, spacious home, comfortable kitchen, eating out for lunch, week-end treats, holiday escapes… then there’s insurances, second cars, sports equipment, Christmas gifts etc.
Visionary social entrepreneurs – that’s known – are not paid by society, and still have learned to live with their 12-16h/day schedules, fueled by their passion, side jobs not being an option; that’s why Ashoka, Skoll etc invest stipends of up to $12,000 per month, for their level of qualification, office, travel needs etc.
That’s my situation.
I can work on far less and be PRODUCTIVE – just like Matt Mullenweg who leads the billion dollar global ‘wordpress’ enterprise without office or email. My ROLE is to coordinate, communicate, train a global network of partners and ONLINE volunteers (I’ve had 11,000 OVs, winning two United Nations Online Volunteer Awards over the past decade). This works.
I have learned to live light during my travel years in Australia and North America. My family phase is completed (my fabulous son has his high school degree), and I am set to serve the planet with the unique services I have to offer to empower our young generation and their adult allies. My good health comes “free”, fueled by daily meditation, yoga etc. Basic rent and mobility are the biggest factors to spread youth leadership to schools, events, regions…
So – a laptop, mat, good company and fresh food is all I need to live at full pace for people and planet. Sure, free stays in your mountain lodges, Paris and Rome apartments, a mobile home or truck, airmilies – are welcome and wanted in-kind support for me and other YL members to stay fresh and move around. But my basics are covered with $/€1,500.
My impact and productivity are guaranteed. I have been committing 100% full-time on spreading youth leadership since 2002, and there is no reason to change this. I have experienced work in settings from city to campgrounds. I know myself, and what works and what doesn’t.
Pretty soon, I’ll be able to cover my costs from book sales, workshops etc. – so that I can make YOUTH-LEADER the free GIFT to the WORLD that I WISH it to BE. You can tell from the superb media, products and services that It is going to work – once we get through the “start-up phase” of 2017.
For now, I need some investment in me from THE PEOPLE, rewarded with great news and surprise perks.
THANK YOU for liberating my time and helping me do this SERVICE FOR PEOPLE & PLANET.
