What's the challenge?
To start a community for people who want to face their fears. We're working on developing an online platform where people will be able to upload, document, and share their stories facing challenges, which will serve as mutual inspiration for everybody. We'll also have local community leaders in different cities of the world organizing events to face fears collectively
What are you afraid of?
I'm afraid of failing on this entrepreneurial journey, going completely broke, not having enough people willing to participate in this initiative, and disappointing the ones that are.
How was the experience?
Ever since my project was discovered by the media, I started to receive thousands of messages from people all over the world showing their interest in starting their own project about facing fear. I received all kinds of questions like: how do I make sure I don't quit? How do I find 100 different things? Is it affordable to do? And so on. So I decided to write a book giving my audience all the necessary tools to face their fears while sharing my own experiences. But as soon as I started writing, I realized that there needed to be a digital compotenet to this. I couldn't just talk about my tools, I wanted to give them a usable tool to really do this. Also, I wanted to give them a sense of community and constant motivation to keep going and never stop facing fears, something that a book couldn't really do. This is when I decided I needed to start a platform where people can get inspired by looking at others' experiences and reading about their personal advice. About the affordability question, no, it is not affordable to do such project, but this shouldn't be approached as a project like I did, it should be a lifestyle. So I want to be able to give my community the opportunity to join monthly events sponsored by us to face fears collectively in their own city. I used to be excited about facing my own fears, now, I'm excited to help others start their own journey. When we share our experiences we have the power to inspire the world, so let's do this together.
