My idea is to interview successful, passionate professionals around the country about their career path to transform their stories into resources that assist aspiring individuals determine the direction of their careers. To get this idea of the ground, I plan to tap into the resources closet to me...my friends and family.
My problem is what can I give friends and family in return for their help. I know that I can offer small businesses direct marketing and online advertising, but what about the people who just want to contribute?
I`d like this post to be a brainstorming session, and to effectively do this I think a little additional info is required.
- Our immediate plan is to conduct a cross country tour featuring 200 interviews with some of the most passionate professionals on the planet.
- The tour will span 14,000 miles in three months
- Our "resources" will take the form of a book, along with our website www.pursuethepassion.com
- Our needs that family and friends will be contributing to are things like places to stay, lunches and dinners on the road, fueling our fire by filling up the gas tank, publicity, and donations
So how can we give back? Credits in the book? Inclusion on our sponsorship page. Cleaning the toilets?
ANY ideas you have would be MUCH appreciated!
