Airport Revelations

I’m sitting in Dulles Airport in DC after an awesome week. Now I’ve got my moleskin out, and I’m etching ideas down like I was carving in stone:
*Four books on this work: adultism, the future of youth and my own life’s story.
*Two children’s books: one on listening to your own voice and one on finding your place in changing the world.
*One motivational book about my Cycle of Engagement and how to use it personally and systematically.
*A new website that acts as a sophisticated wiki focused on youth power, coupled with a youth power library, coupled with an organizational and individual directory.
*A million dollar budget built almost exclusively on fee-for-service training with some foundation funding.
*A permanent training academy located in the DC area that will operate year-around and employ yth and adult educators from around world to train yng ppl and adults from around the world.
*An inexpensive, easy-to-buy and own youth-driven t-shirt company franchise with a franchise-in-a-box opportunity complete with some type of training that focuses on social messaging.

There are a dozen more in this moleskin, and now I’ve got to marinate on them. Let me know what you think!

    That’s something I’m game with and can do presently. Perhaps not on the content creation side (yet at least), but in terms of technical help. I also have a server I can lend as a temporary home.
