Juju’s Question or Topic
Juju started a non-profit organization called Hope for Tomorrow. It helps children in their local community in fields of art, music, and dance. They want to have a center where kids can come and learn. Right now, she has partnership problems with Amanda, her co-founder, and her best friend, particularly with their business plan.
Gary’s Story and Advices
It sounds like Juju’s communication plan involves raising money, which is ludicrous of a plan to start a non-profit during this time when nobody has one. Starting a non-profit during a global pandemic when we lost 22 million jobs in four weeks is a real stretch.
It is better to start a Zoom and Google Hangouts, inviting people to come and educate them. Therefore, taking the mission into a digital free platform that can help lots of kids.
Gary understands Juju since she wants to communicate without hurting Amanda. So she can say, I love you with all my heart, but are you okay? It shouldn’t take four weeks for you to put nine things down on a piece of paper. Let’s do it right now over a coco.
