#MYGIVE4 and The Art of Active Networking!
Organized by: Mark E. Sackett
Grateful for the new donations last week!
March 26, 2017
I created a series of events around the world, currently in 16 cities called "The Art of Active Networking". These events have turned the concepts of "networking" and "connecting" with people who care about making the world a better place.
I teach and spread the concept of giving to one and other through what I call #MYGIVE4 at every event and in all my groups. I believe that giving to each other binds us together in kindness and recognizes the common struggles we all share. I have never met anyone rich or poor, hungry or full, employed or jobless, sheltered or homeless, religious or agnostic, LBGTQ or of any race that does not struggle. Just like you do!
So in 2009 I started doing these events. Now over 14,000 have attended. We help you with your struggles, We help you connect un unique and passionate ways. I teach everyone how to give just 4 hours of every week towards helping others in these 4 ways:
1.) Give of your ideas and talent at no cost...Use your vast experience and expertise to help someone with their project or problem, of course at no charge!
2.) Give of your time...Volunteer for a non-profit, help a neighbor, carry groceries, do a beach clean-up, offer help to someone struggling etc.
3.) Give of your money...Donate on this site, or to any crowdfunding campaign, drop a quarter in a hat on the street, or to someone in line at your coffee house for no reason at all, pay it forward.
4.) Give of your network referrals, recognizing that how we do business and how we build sustainable, long term relationships and friendships is through "know, like and trust" based referrals...Go ahead refer someone, it can make all the difference and open some doors!
I believe we can change the world with #MYGIVE4 and "The Art of Active Networking". I know that the power of us all working together is so much greater than anything we can accomplish on our own!
I charge $20 for my events only to cover the costs to do them. I lose, rather invest, about $30,000 of my own money each year to keep it going. I consider this my church as it were. I want to expand it because I see all the good my members do for each other 24/7 all over the world.
It’s expensive to source venues and plan our events, we’re raising donations to allow us to bring “The Art of Active Networking” to even more cities! Please consider a donation to help us expand. The more people we can help using #MYGIVE4 the better we can all do together!
If you know a Veteran, they are always FREE to any of my events. Anyone who brings 4 paying people also gets in FREE. Consider helping me expand this to more cities so we can help more people.
#MYGIVE4 has the power to become the gold standard for giving! If you want to help me, I welcome you. If you ever have any questions at all, this is my mobile: 415-602-9500
I am blessed to have a great career that has paid me well enough to be able to do this. As it grows, I see that it simply takes much more annually to sustain it. Id love to welcome you here or to any of my events worldwide!
