Shameless Plug Post
Stuff that gets me excited about work
I’m too excited to not share what we’ve been up to lately. It may just be relevant and life-changing for you as well. Here goes:
One - OVERDRIVE PRIME. If you’re a founder frustrated by the process of raising capital, this is for you!
We’re launching a program to help founders raise capital. OVERDRIVE PRIME is about teaching the Founding Wheel Method - we have used it to raise $1B in Angel, Seed, and Institutional Capital. Most of the companies we work with raise between $1M-$2M and increase their valuation 50-100%. Amazing value that comes with a high cost in a one-on-one setup is now available at a fraction through OVERDRIVE PRIME. If you want to learn more - join a FREE Live Webinar we’re doing. Register Here. If you can’t make it at that exact hour, register anyway, we’ll just send you an invite to the next one. I promise it will be great. If you want to find out more about us - you can check out the Third Drive website.
Two - Ukraine Relief Network. I was honored to be invited to my second Men’s Toolbox lunch as a speaker last week in Houston, TX. An amazing event with a room full of professionally successful men in search of significance. The speech was pretty much my crazy life story and the things I have learned to move from suffering to success and significance. My only ask was for support for the Ukraine Relief Network - the work we’re doing with refugees. We raised $42,000 in one day and are rapidly approaching the $250,000 mark in just a couple of months since starting this.
If you’re interested in contributing to this work or want to throw a fundraiser for the Ukraine Relief Network. I would love to hear from you. The needs are overwhelming and we’re doing great work in Lviv and Kyiv.
Three - Ascend Academy. We started our school year at the Ascend Academy in Maputo, Mozambique. It’s an after-school academy where kids from the poorest of the poor spend a few hours every day receiving mentorship and learning English and computer skills. We took a break for COVID and we’re now back at it. It’s a brand new program that will change the very trajectory of the youth in it. Our aspiration is that every single one of them will be out of poverty by the time they graduate high school. Learn more here.
Thanks for reading this all the way through. This is some of the stuff that brings joy to my life because it changes people’s lives. Be it a young entrepreneur raising capital, a refugee in Ukraine, or a kid in Maputo.
If any of these strike a chord or resonate and you want to get involved. Send me a note, a prayer, or a donation.
End of shameless plug.
