Dan and Bryan are both in the 3rd course of Free Agent Academy, Idea. They have relevant ideas to pursue, but wanted some group feedback. Jonathan Pool and I led a brainstorming discussion on their ideas, including feedback from FAA members and some of the public from the live show.
Listen below, and if you have some ideas or comments for them, please leave in the comments section below!
Dan Tate – From Omaha, NE, married with two young boy. “I’m full-time employed with PayPal, the eBay company that processes payments online.”
Idea 1: I’ve posted about my Media in Missions idea that, in brief, is a team of people that creates all the material for a missionary to tell others about their work: print, photo, video, audio, etc. I envision this as a broad flexible idea that could incorporate many individual ideas: young volunteers come alongside professionals in an educational setting, media opportunities both at home, abroad, and online for those in distant areas, as well as short- and long-term opportunities for people to go into the field for a single project or an entire tour. I see the strength of this idea being the interest people have in the updates from the mission field and the challenges being funding, building the team, etc.
Idea 2: Stepping back from the media focus many of my projects have had over the years, I enjoy doing and trying new things far outside art and media. I wonder if building a “We do that” framework from a core team of people that are able to recognize the challenges, formulate solutions, and deliver possibilities would be a better fit to my broad scope. Challenges here start with the idea being so broad I don’t have the refinement necessary to develop the idea and deliver to clients a message of what we do. Consultant is a poor adjective and I need assistance refining how I would apply my broad interests in an advising role to others.
Bryan Morris – Visalia, CA, married with three young kiddos. “I’m full time employed as a car wash tech.”
I am not really clear on what one idea. I thought I would like to do some kind of coaching, but Jonathan helped me realize that is not an exact fit. Coaches tend to work with people on the phone, I need to connect with people. I try to interact with people in the groups but it is hard to focus. These are the ideas I’ve come up with so far.
1 Career coach – Help individuals find the career they were made to do. I would work with clients one
2 Financial coach – Help individuals get out of debt, and make there money behave.
3 Business start up coach – Help individuals take there idea to market.
4 Success coach – Help individuals find success in all area’s of there lives.
5 Coach teens to find there fit in life – Help high school kids to choose a path that fits there wiring.
