We started paying it forward with our Dream Employee membership in January 2021. Orlena and I are partnering with a group out of Gulu, Uganda, Africa called Elephante Commons. This NGO is being run by our great friends Quinn and Brit Neely. Elephante Commons is a community development project in an impoverished, difficult area to live in. Quinn and Brit moved there seven years ago and began a community center. It has now grown to include a restaurant, small hotel, training and education center, and health care. Their heart and Brit’s big vision is for the people in Gulu to become self-sustaining in their whole life.

Paying It Forward

This year and going forward, we are going to pay a percentage of each Dream Employee membership that we sign up here in the States. We will be paying it forward and sponsoring a membership for one of the community members at Elephante Commons.

You can go to our website at confidencecoach.org and learn more about Elephante and all the amazing work that Quinn and Brit are doing. Everything from learning to be self sustaining to education to healthcare to faith to community care — the whole 10 yards!

Orlena and I have been to Uganda and spent time there. We know, trust and love this couple and their dream. Through paying it forward, we are going to take the Dream Employee membership to a whole new level. Not only will we be helping our business owners and employees achieve their own dreams and goals through the Dream Employee membership, but we will also be going a step further and paying it forward. This cause will reach out to the least, the last, the forgotten, the orphan, and the widow in Gulu, Uganda.

I’ll throw this thought out to you. If you’re looking for a way to not only care and support your people becoming a better version of themselves, but you want your dollar to go deeper and make a difference in the world, this is a phenomenal way of doing it. We’re excited about it. We know the difference that paying it forward is going to make.

We have some surprises coming up over this year that we’ll be bringing to you as our partnership grows with Elephante over the year and into the future. Check out Elephante here.

A goal is not just about what you achieve, it’s about who you become in the process.

Today I just want to say three quick things about the above statement. If you’re like most of our clients, I know you are very goal driven. That is wonderful, but there’s another side to achieving goals and that is it’s not just about the achievement, but about who you’re becoming as you achieve your goal.

Stop for a second and think about your biggest goal. Think about these three questions.

  1. While I’m in the process of reaching my goal, who am I becoming along the way as I’m achieving it?
  2. Is this goal in line with who and where I want to be 5, 10, or 20 years from now? Is it actually creating in me the behaviors, the values, the insight, the things that I want to be 20 years from now?
  3. What conscious choices am I going to make today about my goal that align with who I want to be in the future?

At Confidence Coach, we are here to support and encourage you as you achieve your dreams, goals and aspirations. Feel free to schedule a free consultation.
