Behind The Scenes.

“Impact Venture Capitalists!”

Morning Team…

I’ll keep this update this morning short.

This past week I had meetings with my executive team, within my different companies, to figure our some operational issues as to how we’re going to continue to make Impact Club the priority.

Things went well. Some people adopted some new roles.


I also made contact with a non-profit organization that offered to team with Impact Club, to build a custom solution to make donation collections easier for members. Nothing yet has come of that…

But I’ll keep you all posted.

The big news is, Impact Club Coeur d’Alene and Impact Club Wilmington. Boy oh boy! Look at ’em go. Both, in their first week of launch, have already rushed past 50 registered members.

To put that into perspective.

Over the course of the next 12-months, that’s more than $40,000 that will donated to local charities in those two communities. By who? Impact Venture Capitalists. That’s who. Impact Club members.

That is the power of Elevated Philanthropy!

PS: Impact Club Boise is back on the jet fuel as well. – Oo-Rah! team.

CRAFT Your StoryEngine

I have said it before.

Impact Club is not the first “Giving Circle.” Impact Club did not invent the concept anymore than Yo Cream invented frozen yogurt. Impact Club, however, is the first to have far superior storytelling abilities.

I learned long ago, after I was rejected from medical school 47 times over a 4 year period, if you can’t tell a story, or enunciate a powerful message, then it’s damn hard to inspire anyone.

Same could be said about comedy.

If you can’t tell a story or enunciate a uniquely funny message, then it’s damn hard to make anyone laugh. Which is why great comedians will work for an entire, year on their material, prior to an HBO Special.

I view my job the same. It’s not easy to build a StoryEngine.

It must be thought about. Scripted. Practiced.


Your StoryEngine is the TED Talk of your organization. So don’t wing it.

The video above is just one take (of many) of me practicing the first page of the first video, to explain the big picture of Impact Club “The Game.” In all reality, Impact Club hasn’t even launched.

We’re still in Beta. There is so much more to come!

We’re still touring, preparing…

Our HBO Special will be later this year or early next. Behind the scenes is where all the work takes place. Nobody sees it. But that’s what makes people say, “You’re a natural,” when they see you “perform.”

Nothing, in all honesty though, could be further from the truth.

Being a “natural,” is just intense preparation.

Love to hear your thoughts!

Hit reply.
