Sasha's Quest to Be the Next Oprah

$2,350 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 55 months
UPDATE: I will donate 10% of funds to Room To Read. Books and self-learning have always been very important to me, increasingly in the past couple years. (Yes, I really do get text messages from the library). This organization works to decrease poverty by increasing literacy rates in countries around the world. By doing this, I hope to share the generosity you're sharing with me. Thank you for your support and overall Awesomeness! 

To My Friends, Family Members, and Living Creatures of this World:

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be directly mentored by multimillionaires? I mean, how in the world did they do it, right? How do people become super successful and financially free?

If you ever wondered about this, so have I. And for the past two years, I've been on a quest to find out. 

Luckily, an amazing opportunity came up this past March.

I had the chance to apply to Blacksmith Liberty & Entrepreneurship Camp hosted by uber successful entrepreneurs Simon Black and Craig Ballantyne. Every August, they hold this camp to teach, mentor, and invest in people they believe to be the next Richard Bransons, Steve Jobs, and Oprahs of this world.

The competition was daunting and I even reconsidered turning my application in. I was up against thousands of applicants around the world and the program is harder to get into than Harvard (~3%). 

But to my surprise... I was one of the 65 who GOT IN!

This August, these are just a few things I will be learning from the best:

-Building a Business: How to start with an idea, make it better, and build a real business around it
-Lifestyle design: Living where you want, how you want, doing what you want
-The PT lifestyle: How the entire world can be your oyster

The whole camp is entirely free, the only thing I need to worry about is getting to LITHUANIA by August 5. 

So I am reaching out to humbly ask if you will consider going on this journey with me?

The funds raised here will go to the airfare, hostel, and transportation costs to get me to the camp. 

If you feel like I have left a positive mark on your life, I would love to accept any generous donation you can offer :)

As a small token of gratitude for your support and care, I am offering various rewards for your participation in this part of the journey. Even if you're not able to contribute, I want to thank you for spending a few minutes of your busy day reading these words - your support is already felt and it goes a long way! Thank you everyone!

All the best to you,


P.S. If you're wondering how I got in, here's a link to my application video.

P.P.S The reward levels are named after some of the embarrassing nicknames people called me at school.
