As you may know since the start of 2019 I have been experimenting on an alternative way of living and making a living via donations only for my work. This has made me realise (slow learner here) that I ended up, and still am, depending on people in order for me to fulfil my basic needs.
I really got to experince how communities used to be. People directly exchanged their time for resources without relying on a 3rd party to do so (aka money). An alien concept for today’s culture raised to be independent through personal capital.
This, however, has meant that when other needs, i.e. attending courses, talks, events, workshops or simply having a meal out with friends, have taken a backseat since I’m not able to rely on donations alone in order to fulfil my day to day necessities. This is something that I want to be able to do more of to fulfil my personal needs and self-growth which ultimately helps me help people.
In a community, we have to justify the investment of energy and resources. Therefore, if I am going to continue making my work accessible to the people that need it the most, which tend to be the people that have the less, I would like for the community to provided for my needs if deemed appropriate.
The experiences that I seek will help me expand my coaching toolsets, improve the quality of my content, enjoy time with creative beings and make needed connections for future collaborations.
If you are about to donate, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Thank you for allowing me to carry on exploring and experimenting an alternative way to balance our human & economical needs. And for allowing the coaching to be accessible to all
