The 24 Hour Peace Project. Change the world in just 24 Hours.

The classic question of “What if” at work… What if for 24 hours you thought about how you could positively impact the world around you through your own social entrepreneurial venture? What if, just by spending this time thinking about how you can change the community you end up changing your perspective on life entirely?

What am I asking? I would like you to think of a business idea specifically targeted at helping improve the human or environmental welfare of the local/world community. My challenge is to put this plan in to a one page document and submit it to me all within a 24 hour period of time from when you see this page to when you finally submit it. If your plan is feasible, I’d like to help you get the ground running with the creation of a business plan that you can submit to some venture capitalists focused on social enterprise with my consult. There are no guarantees that this will work but it’s my goal for us to give it a try.

Why am I doing this? There is so much violence in this world that I believe it is time to see what the true power of good can do. I would like us to band together as citizens of the world to improve our quality of life for once and for all. My hope is to get at least one person from every corner of the world to participate. Many people also don’t have the experience to write a business plan or where to start with funding. This is something I have done in the past and would be more than happy to help make your dream a reality. If you can’t commit to writing a plan, try and pay forward as much as you can within a 24 Hour period of time to see how many lives you can touch and change. Please post your experiences on the wall for us to view and enjoy.

Blessings, and I hope to hear from you. Let’s make peace a 24 Hour project. It’s time.
