--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you ever feel lost?  Feel that you don’t have control of your life, your kids, your job or your future?  Don’t know where to start or what to do to gain a purpose in your life?

We believe that we all have a purpose and a desire to make a difference – it just gets buried in the day to day lives that we live.  We want to help people recapture or find the drive to succeed – to become an entrepreneur for yourself and your family and help others achieve that goal.  Take responsibility of your life and your purpose.

That is why A BILLION ENTREPRENEURS THE MOVIE is being created. It is the first step on a journey to help teach people to find their purpose as we redefine the word entrepreneurship.  By having an entrepreneur in every home, we believe this will have a profound impact on the world and will inspire generations to come.

Being entrepreneurial and on-purpose has shown many benefits from early childhood to adulthood.  Below are a few benefits based on the National Content Standards for Entrepreneurship Education.

Benefits of Entrepreneurship Include:

  • Elementary students show an increase in attendance, higher academic achievement, and learn to use opportunity recognition and problem solving skills.
  • Middle school students show a decrease in teen pregnancies and substance abuse, increased self-esteem and respect, and encouraged risk-taking and learning from failure.
  • High school students translate problems into opportunities, use strategies for idea generation, and become entrepreneurial thinkers who also have the skills and tools to start their own businesses.
  • Post secondary and adult students see changes in personal and career attitudes including self-worth, ability to control one’s own life, and show motivation and personal responsibility.

This is where we need your help!

We need to hit our goal here on Kickstarter so we can continue to inspire entrepreneurship and encourage the global community to find their purpose, which will in return build a better world for all of us.

As a special gift, you get access to our ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAM with any contribution level.  Our video program is a guide to help you define and develop your purpose.

Here is a brief list of the video modules in the program:

  • Finding My Life's Purpose
  • Leadership Skills
  • Think Big, Grow Big
  • Building the Best Me

There is a total of 10 video modules with accompanying workbooks that allow you to follow along and fully engage and integrate what you learn into your life.  

So if you are ready, find your path to a better life while spreading the message of entrepreneurship, responsibility and life purpose to people all over the world!
