Super Rad Video

“Impact Venture Capitalists!”

Morning Team…

I hope you all enjoy the gluttony of Thanksgiving, football, fights about politics, and of course, the family you spent it with. It’s good to be back after a week off. And I have a special video to share.

Tattoo Tom was the first eve Impact Club winner.

Northern VA.

Last year, on December 19th.

Well, our production team, part of our sister media-company Advice Givers, had the chance to catch up with Tom and Stillbrave to capture a special transformation. I’m extremely proud of our team:

Take a peek:

Here’s Tom’s post, “SUPER RAD VIDEO”

Above all, the way I have felt meaning and purpose in my life, and made a good living and income, is to focus on giving to others. Do for others (with zero expectation), and others will do for you.

That is what’s special about the work we get to do through Impact Club. Tattoo Tom gives without expectation to the families battling cancer, that he helps. And we’re able to do the same for him and others.


We are getting close. The goal is January 2018, to launch the entire back-end infrastructure of Impact Club. I know I’ve talked about it, for what seems like forever. I know… I know.

But I also know I don’t want get it wrong.

This is the foundation!

I recently read where, before writing the first chapter of Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling planned for seven years at Hogwarts. Harry Potter is one of the most read books of all-time.

…Before creating the first Star Wars movie in the 1970’s, George Lucas planned for at least six films and started at episode four, rather than episode one. Almost 40 years later, the entire world (at the entire world of Star Wars fans) continues to be excited with the release of the Star Wars film.

(Something that would not be possible if Lucas hadn’t thoughtfully and largely planned ahead.)

So, I have been planning ahead.

I know how special Impact Club is. Not just to me. But to you. So I want to be sure to do right by you, and all the incredible charities that we – as a Community – have had the chance to impact through Elevated Philanthropy.

T-minus January.

2018 will be a huge year for us Impact Venture Capitalists!

Keep inspiring,

From Eric Verdi – Impact Club Frederick (Year one, update)


On Tuesday November 14th we hosted the 4th Quarter Impact Club at our partner facility, The Blue Side Tavern, in downtown Frederick. The night, it was ELECTRIC!!!

There was something special in the room this evening. A sense of community, a sense of camaraderie, a sense of a greater purpose.

When we started back on February 22nd we weren’t quite sure where this would lead. People came and they were excited, but they weren’t quite sure how to act and how to interact with one another. Remember in Middle School, where there were groups of 4-5 people and those kids all stuck together and didn’t talk to anyone else. They didn’t know the people that weren’t in ‘their group’ and they all kind of stuck together.

That was Impact Club Frederick at the first event.

Even though the donation to Heartly House was incredible at $18,200 and by the end of the night when the check was presented to them the walls between the groups started to break down and we started to become one.

This time, you could sense it from the beginning as members poured into The Blue Side, that the members had ‘broken down the walls’ and new friendships and relationships have formed throughout the 4 events this year. There were hugs, handshakes, meaningful conversations between people who didn’t know each other before Impact Club.

That is the power of the community of the Impact Club.

We meet once a Quarter and have a MASSIVE impact with one local charity, but more than that we hang on every word of all 3 charities that present. We get to hear their Story. We become emotionally attached to ALL 3 of the presenters and their respective charities. At the end of the night, yes one charity has a great donation, but all 3 have shared their Story with 265 friends.

The common theme between Impact Club members is a purpose to something greater than themselves. And those walls, those barriers between the different groups, once you come into the Impact Club is broken down.

We are all ONE.

We are for a common purpose of doing good and making an impact in Frederick. And we… you are doing just that. Nearly $100,000 has directly affected THOUSANDS of those in need in Frederick and for that, I THANK YOU!!!

See you in February!!!


Well said, Eric.

Congratulations Team!
