I’m a FINALIST in EforAll’s 2016 Summer Accelerator Program!!!
May 30th, 2016
It was announced about two weeks ago in an email from EforAll’s Program Manager Jeremiah Hernandez (of U.G.L.Y. Gallery fame), that I’m a FINALIST in the 2016 SUMMER ACCELERATOR PROGRAM!
Here’s a program description: Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) Finalists [in the ACCELERATOR] receive three months of incredible mentorship & weekly workshops, free office space, access to technical experts, and the opportunity to compete for $30,000 in cash prizes to launch your business.
This is what I’M IN Happy People!!!
Excited doesn’t even half explain it
The mind-blowing part to me (and there are several) is that I can’t even FATHOM what is going to happen! Even as I write this, my business concept of mobile art sessions is evolving. I know several Finalists from the 2015 WINTER ACCELERATOR and I’ve seen first hand what going through the program does…it’s ALL in the program name!
I was off the wagon doubting, restructuring and a bit confused as to how do I get the attention of the City. The BIGGEST BANG for the buck is in the damn BUCKS! I need to make more, right? I don’t currently have the ship to carry out that mission, but through this program I’m about to have a BOMB A$$ CREW!!! It’s not coincidence that the “Particle Accelerator” gave the FLASH him powers. I feel this is it…THE ACCELERATOR!!!
Zoom!!! Zoom!!! Zoom!!!
I’ve felt I’ve needed to catch up on SO MUCH time I’ve lost. I could use a boost! The reality is I wasn’t lost, just learning…learning MORE about myself and how ALL my limits were / are self imposed. The BIGGEST lesson that the Universe has placed in my awareness is now in my Vision for my capabilities. Too often I think too small. I DREAM BIG but think small…in terms of brand expansion, business projection, collaboration with artists and organizations, program funding, salary. It’s there in my personal life too. My limiting beliefs have stunted my professional growth…but not for long.
The polishing I need
Not everyone knows what they are here to do on the planet. I know enough to know that I’m on track and because of some BOMB A$$ karma, with a pinch of luck mixed up in my “dream pot” of a brain, that an opportunity has POPPED into range! Even though the scope is out of my range, I know what I’m about to go through is what I need to get where I want and to be MORE of who I am…free. Not bound by my limits or those another would suggest I wear.
Put up or shut up
ALL of my skills and savvy are not ONLY about to be put to use, but MORE like put to the test. This program is the incident that helps endow the good-natured, helpful, kind-hearted, hero batter into a SUPERHERO. I’ve been waiting for the Universe to throw this bone my way for some time! This is a BIG FAT JUICY ONE with some meat and fat still on half of it!
Thank you universe
Now, it’s time to think BIG!!! BIGGER than EVER!!! A knowledgeable group of mentors is about to be assembled for my concept…I have NO IDEA what to expect since this program is so custom to the individual. I’ve spoken in depth with two participants in the WINTER ACCELERATOR. They BOTH mentioned “polish, mentorship, and tears”…not in that order. I’m a bit scared but I know whatever I’m faced with will be to improve my position. Things are looking WAAAY UP!!!
I’d like to think I’ll be able to document the experience as it’s happening…wish me luck on that one!
