A Bountiful Life Circle of Advocacy

A Bountiful Life is many things. It began as a Program of living abundantly. It became also an informal (now crystalizing)  Boutique for resale and consignment of designer goods, accessories, and collectibles.  A Bountiful Life publishes comic self-help books , inspiring fiction , and handbooks. It also produces a podcast available on iTunes. Each activity of A Bountiful Life furthers the business program's Core Principle.

The Core Principle of A Bountiful Life is that, working collaboratively, in the spirit of optimism, we can ALL live richly abundant and supremely fulfilling lives together.

Today, we are revving up our innovative, multifaceted business model. This month, we will host our first open house at the A Bountiful Life Boutique in Chicago, IL for guests invested in improving their's and other's lives. At this landmark event, we will formally announce our intent to develop the A Bountiful Life Circle of Advocacy.

The Circle of Advocacy will bring together persons who have faced and overcome adversities, so that we may, with our combined knowledge, adopt techniques and strategies to coach others facing similar adversities so they may with all deliberate speed achieve positive outcomes. Adversities may include financial duress, psychological illness, substance use disorders, bereavement, occupational dissatisfaction, terminal or chronic illness, and more. The Circle will begin as a kind of think tank with periodic online and face-to-face meetings, then grow into a network of for-hire strategic life coaches who utilize our fully-developed, innovative coaching modality that will help clients dynamically face and overcome life's most daunting challenges.

To build this network, we will require startup funds for printing, technology, legal assistance, business plan development, branding, and basic organizational infrastructure, such as phone lines, websites, publications, online forums, and more. The Circle of Advocacy will be developed as a profitable business, but one designed to help people thrive. Our business plan, when finalized, will lay out a strategy of development, profit, and impact to attract macro investors.

However, we are at the startup phase in this process. We have begun development and registration of linked corporate and nonprofit entities in the implementation of our plan, such as Alternative Events, LLC (under which A Bountiful Life falls as a business program) and the nonprofit Consumer and Civil Rights Protection Project (through which low-income clients are currently being served with preliminary coaching strategies as we beta test our methodology). That said, we are asking our initial investors to support the development of A Bountiful Life Circle of Advocacy with micro investments of $25.00.

Your return on investment will be your knowledge that you are a true participant in the Bountiful Life Core Principle. Consistent with the Core Principle of A Bountiful Life, you will through your investment of $25 be acting with us, collaboratively, to build a coaching network that will reach thousands of clients in difficult life situations. By making this simple and small investment in our project, you will be among those laying the foundations of a grand support network utilizing modalities of dynamic, short-term coaching emphasizing solving specific life problems expeditiously, thus enabling greater access to coaching (which typically is an ongoing, costly, long-term arrangement) by reducing the client's necessary financial commitment to coaching fees. Your $25 investment will help make all of this possible.

We do not, however, just want your micro investment of $25. We actually want you to join us in this endeavor. Which is to say, we will reach out to each investor of $25 to join our ever-expanding Circle  of Advocacy, help us refine our dynamic coaching strategies, and, when our business is solidified, potentially join us as a for-hire strategic life coach, helping clients around the world overcome adversities based on the accumulated knowledge, skills, and experience of the Circle. This new project is very exciting for us, and we hope you will want to be a part of it. You may participate with us in-person in Chicago or join us through communications technologies from any part of the world. Let's begin then. Thank you for your support.
