Announcing the Campaign to Help a Selfless Veteran Fund his College Education





Help a Veteran Get His Teaching License

Plainfield, NJ -- March 30, 2015 -- Darnell Knight, military veteran and college student, announces the campaign to seek funding to cover the cost of finishing his teaching degree and getting his teaching license.

Darnell has suffered a great deal in his life. Being raised by his grandparents in a less than safe neighborhood, Darnell saw his share of hardship, death and despair. Despite successfully fighting his way through high school and making it into college, Darnell suffered a major car accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury that both required significant rehabilitation and recovery efforts before he was able to return to his regular life. With all of these setbacks Darnell was still not deterred, and not only finished with his Bachelor’s Degree, but continued on to pursue his Master’s Degree in education.

This is where things took a turn for the worse. Due to an error created by his college’s new accounting system, suddenly Darnell found himself with a past due balance of $2,500, none of which he had in cash or credit to pay back. Although he attempted to work out a payment plan or use the GI bill (military benefits that can be used towards college credits), he was told he had to pay his balance in full or risk being disenrolled mid-semester. At the same time, he was also diagnosed with worrisome masses on his thyroid that his doctors expressed great concern over. On top of all this, a job he truly cared about, working as a youth counselor, ended suddenly and he was not offered a full-time position. Darnell spent the following year nearly homeless and destitute, begging for friends and family to put him up for a few nights on their couches before moving on.

Luckily for Darnell, he has spent the last 6 months slowly paying back some of his debt through a call center operator position, where he has done very well and has enjoyed his work. He has finally been able to pay off the past due amount and is able to re-enroll in college to complete his degree.

Darnell is seeking funding in the amount of $50,000 to cover his bills as well as the tuition that will not be covered by the remaining 7 months of his GI bill benefits. Darnell’s goal is to complete his education and apply for his teaching license, giving him the opportunity to work with at-risk youth at a larger capacity that he had been able to as a youth counselor.

Please considering donating to help a military veteran reach his dreams after years of hardship.

VWEB Technologies. LLC Announces Hootshare - Streaming Video Live from Everywhere





Streaming Your World, Live!

Dallas, TX  – March 30, 2015 – VWEB Technologies. LLC announces the development of the Hootshare application and website to allow users to effortlessly stream live media from their mobile device, and share it with anyone they wish through our website and existing social media networks.

First, Hootshare is a mobile application that is tightly integrated with the website Hootshare.com. The idea is to stream live video to the website so friends and family can see what you are doing in real time. Then Hootshare archives the video for later playback for those that cannot watch right now. 

Second, the founders wanted Hootshare to be social. Social Media is a great force in today’s society. People want to share what they are doing. Hootshare lets you do that without delay, in real time. You can post links to your Facebook and Twitter accounts right from the app, without interrupting the stream. Once the stream ends, those links remain active and will point to the archived version of the stream. 

Additionally, the founders wanted to make Hootshare secure. Some people will share with everyone, drives interest in your activities and builds the Hootshare brand. But, we all know there are times when you need a little privacy too. So the founders of Hootshare have built a follow system that lets you decide who can see your streams! 

Hootshare is built to be fun and easy to use, as intuitive as possible and did we mention fun?

The Future of Hootshare
So far we have the website and the initial (iOS) mobile application completed. The creators of Hootshare are almost ready to start beta testing, and begin working on the Android version. They also need to grow their infrastructure by adding more servers to handle the load when they go live. They dont want any server crashes!  The founders are continuing to do R&D to enhance both the web site and applications with new and better functionally. That's why Hootshare needs your help! With your generous support, Hootshare will be the phenomenal success we know it can be. And of course, we want to give you credit for all your support!

About Hootshare
Hootshare began its journey in early 2011 by the two founders, Tom Hodges and Gary Dean. They first came up with the idea of a mobile application that can stream video in real time rather than record it on the device. This idea went through several iterations and we finally settled on the Hootshare model.

Announcing the Campaign to Provide Funding for a New Documentary



Help provide funding to document the recovery and rebirth of a very lucky man

Phoenix, AZ -- March 22, 2015 -- Billy F. Mullin announces the campaign to seek funding to cover the costs of filming a new documentary about his recovery and rebirth from a long series of illness of injury.

At the age of 16, Billy contracted a rare terminal form disease known as  Meningital Coccidioidomycosis, caused by a virus trapped in the valley fever fungus that is stuck in Billy’s spine. This illness caused him to have a stroke, paralyzing his entire left side. Due to the severity of this illness, his doctors gave him a grim 2 year life expectancy.

Defying all odds, Billy has now reached the age of 27. However has not been an easy journey. Since being diagnosed in August 2004 he has suffered several setbacks, requiring that he re-teach himself how to walk 3 times, spent countless days in the Hospital or in bed unable to move, received more than a dozen spinal taps, and required brain surgery 6 separate occasions. Billy’s doctors have warned him that he may require several more surgeries on his brain throughout his life to repair the damage caused by his illness.

While the seriousness of his illness coupled with the lengthy hospital stays made it impossible for him to completely finish film school, he attended enough of his coursework to realize that his true dream is to become a film maker. Hence, he decided to start a documentary about his own life and explore the passion he has for the art of tattooing.

The plan for this documentary is to film the process of completely transforming his appearance through the use of large pieces of tattoo art covering both of his arms, portions of his neck, and 70% of his torso. Throughout the documentary, Billy will couple the process of his tattoo sessions while telling his life story and subsequent illness through interviews with various important people in his life.

Billy is seeking funding in order to complete the documentary and tattoo artwork. While he admits this is likely to be a costly and dangerous venture, he believes this is the best way to explore his love of film while allowing himself to be reborn out of his previous suffering.

Announcing the Medical Campaign to Help Cynthia Hart



Cynthia Hart/Kizerian Beating The Odds

Salt Lake City, UT  March 15, 2015 – Mary Hart is the proud daughter of Cynthia and Jimmy Hart. Her Dad passed away October 6, 2014 from ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease.) During this time, Mary’s mom got the help she needed through sobriety so she could be there for her husband and family. Mary was her father's power of attorney and primary caregiver, but couldn't have done it without the help of her mother. Without her, the death of her father and the recovery process would have been unfathomable.
Mary and her mother have been through a lot this past year. Mary’s mother is the strongest woman she has ever met, she’s her everything; her hero, and is the one keeping her going and giving her strength and hope. Three months after the love of her life passed, Cynthia was sadly diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian cancer. She successfully had the debulking surgery done, and is now living with Mary in Salt Lake City while completing 6 cycles of 2 different types a chemo; paclitaxel, and carboplatin (chemo every week, 1 cycle=3 weeks). After the 6 cycles of chemo, Mary would like her mom to go to a medical facility outside the U.S. that will be able to help her maintain remission and prevent the cancer from coming back. U.S. statistic for women with ovarian cancer stage 3C, is that 1 out of 6 women live 5 years. I cannot settle for that.
The first step to furthering treatment is to investigate the cause which they have raised enough money for. The doctor whom Mary has spoken with (outside of the U.S.) traveling to Utah this month to collect samples which will then be sent to various countries. Once they're able to know what caused her mother's ovarian cancer, they'll be able to come up with a specific treatment plan after finishing chemo. The treatment cost is unknown until they find the cause, but she has been told treatment could cost between $10,000-$20,000, not including travel  fees. Mary changed the goal amount to $25,000 hoping they can raise enough to find out the cause and the rest to cover all of her of her treatment and plane tickets. And GoFundMe and WePay takes out a nice percentage out of each donation. Once they figure out the cause Mary will change the goal amount to the treatment amount + the fundraising fees for this website.
Please help Mary’s mom get the chance to live and grow old. Please help give her mom the time to fulfill her life. She understands everyone has their own problems, but any type of help would be greatly appreciated.. If you or anyone you know is willing to help throw fundraisers, spread the word, make invitations, get companies on board, etc, please direct them to  http://www.gofundme.com/cancerkissmyass

Announcing the Campaign to Help a Struggling Selfless Man



Help provide funding to help a man support his family

Denver, CO  March 14, 2015Frances Mukaikubo and her fiancee, Edgar Harper, announce the campaign to raise money to help pay off their substantial debt. Edgar has been supporting his fiancee and her ailing mother for the past few months. After making the difficult decision to purchase a home for all three to share, Edgar experienced cut backs at work that resulted in a devasting loss of income. As neither his fiancee or her 93 year old mother are able to work, their home and bills rely on his only income. All three face impending foreclosure if they can't get back on their feet very, very soon.

Right now they are falling behind on their bills, including the mortgage, HOA dues, utilities, etc.. Due to the amount that Edgar travels each day, his car also needs significant repairs, which includes new brakes, shocks, struts and replacement tires to keep it safe on his job. He has to drive over 200 miles in the mountains, here in Colorado, in the winter everyday and he needs a really safe car to do his route and make it home safely to us. He has already slid off the road while working this winter, and luckily did only minor damage to his car that he can't get fixed because of the insurance deductible.

This campaign is solely about raising money for the necessities so the family's life can start and then Edgar will be take all responsibilities of keeping the home viable and profitable. The family is seeking $5,000 to help pay off the expensive car repairs as well as the bill they have become delinquent on. Please breathe life back into this family, and they will take every dollar donated and use it to repair Edgar's car, pay off delinquent bills and hopefully set some aside in savings so they can be a little more secure in their financial future.

Why Banks Want Your Business to Have a Permanent & Professional Address



As a startup or small business, what is the smartest way of doing business? Many businesses confront several challenges in order to ensure their survival in a highly competitive business world. The most crucial challenges are:

  • Financial Problems: Most startups and small businesses have limited budgets, limited resources, and limited assets. They need loans to execute various business activities.

  • Securing New Clientele: Startups and small businesses need new clients in order to expand their business. This can be quite challenging in our highly competitive marketplace.

  • Credibility and Professionalism: In order to continue getting consistent business, all businesses need to project a credible and professional image in all that they do.

  • Quality Service: To stay ahead of their competition and sustain their presence in the marketplace, businesses must offer quality service and products.

Startups and small businesses need to conquer and monitor these concerns to maximize their growth. The smartest way to tackle all these issues is to have a permanent and professional address dedicated solely to their business. This speaks volumes about the stability of the business. If someone is working out of their home and uses their home address, prospective clients may be unsure about the stability and reliability of the business.

All of the concerns above can positively or negatively affect one's business, however, it can be argued that financial concerns are the most important. Unless, you have sufficient financial resources, it is nearly impossible to grow and meet your business goals.

Many banks and lending facilities steer clear of loans involving fledgling companies starting out from the entrepreneur's home. For the same reason many prospective clients shy away -- they all have the question in mind of whether or not the business will be there in 1-5 years. They may see the business as immature and they know the mortality rate for immature businesses is quite high. There is a greater risk. The potential to lose money is significant.

The absence of a permanent and corporate address discourages banks, lenders, and potential clients. Home businesses are often not viewed as "real businesses". All of this will subsequently hamper your business growth, potential investment, and performance in the marketplace.

But, what are you to do if you aren't exactly at a place where you can move your business out of your home? Or, what if you want to be a home-based business? Virtual offices are a smart way to get that professional impression for your business. Due to restricted budgets, many startups and small businesses can’t afford to have their personal corporate offices. Instead, they can rent virtual offices receiving mail and receptionist services, if desired, along with access to meeting rooms and offices for special occasions. There are many companies which offer virtual offices to help you smartly grow your business.

Kowerk Executive Suites in West Palm Beach is a leading provider of various kinds of virtual office solutions to businesses with variable demands and budgets. The company also offers other services such as providing shared office spaces, private office spaces, meeting rooms and so on. Furnished with the latest technology and equipment, Kowerk offers an ideal working environment for businesses where ideas are exchanged, networks are strengthened and business grows like never before. What a smart way of doing business! For more information contact http://www.officespaceinwestpalmbeach.com.

How Emotive Storytelling in Business Brands Builds Client Loyalty



Success depends upon our ability to persuade others to adopt our ideas. If we can’t convince our customers to buy our products or services, we can’t move forward in business. But how best to do that? Storytelling in business is probably the best way you can persuade your customers to purchase your products or services.

What does a story mean? A story is how we make sense of the world. We organize details according to our experiences and interactions in the world and make a story out of them which helps us find our place in the big picture. Storytelling is a novel and innovative way to engage with people emotionally, win their hearts and captivate their minds. Storytelling is as old as human life and continues to be relevant today.

In the words of Peter Guber, former CEO of Sony Pictures, Academy Award Producer, and author of Tell to Win, “There’s no business without story business. To connect, persuade, and triumph in business, you need to ‘tell to win’ with the hidden power of story. Stories create a relationship rather than a transaction. Stories open the heart rather than alert defenses and trigger resistance.”

There is nothing new about brand storytelling. It is as old as business. But with the dramatic growth of social media and content marketing, the scope of telling stories as part of the direct and indirect brand marketing maneuvers has become a vital priority. See how emotive storytelling rather than rational corporate language in business helps build client loyalty:

  1. Building Trust through Truthful Stories. When you tell a story about your brand, it should be rooted in the reality of your brand, products and industry. Honesty, transparency and consistency are indispensable in brand storytelling. If your brand stories lack consistency, consumers will be confused and will look for other brands that meet their expectations. You can ask satisfied customers if you can share their stories. If you have a blog, correctly cite your sources. Share who you are and who your team members are as regular people that your customers can relate to.

  1. Characters in Stories Should Appeal to Audience. Your audience should love the characters in your stories. You can create buyer personas and tell stories from their point of view or tell stories from your employees’ perspective or from a third-person point of view. Creating characters that enable your audience to become emotionally connected to them and follow them will go a long way in building client loyalty. An example of this would be the Gecko in the Geico commercials.

  1. Your Story Should Have a Proper Structure. Your brand story should have a well-defined beginning, middle and end. Start strongly with your characters and setting. Come to the conflict the main character faces in the middle and resolution in the end. Take your audience on the journey of your business along with you. If it appeals to them, they will adhere to your brand, spread word of mouth and strengthen their relationship with you. For instance, in 2013 Chipotle created a video that became an online sensation.
           
Technically, it didn't qualify as an ad. It never aired on TV. But the cute story of a little scarecrow in a dystopian world of processed foods creating a beautiful oasis of a farm and a little burrito stand in a dystopian world of processed foods got over 11.6 million views on YouTube and was a spread across social media. Chipotle's gamble paid off, especially considered they didn't have to pay for placement.

  1. Perpetual Marketing through Storytelling. Your stories should always open door to the next ones. Make your audience want more and continue association with your brand. Keep releasing teasers through Facebook, email, or Pinterest, and post updates regularly on a specific space on your website or Facebook page.

Given the power of effective storytelling in business to woo customers and ensure their loyalty, every business needs to look into seeing how they can apply storytelling to their brand. For start ups and small business, brand marketing is a tough but rewarding task.

Kowerk Executive Suites supports small business in a variety of ways. One way is providing tips and food for thought on how to successfully build up a small business.

What's the biggest hook for catching investors? Customers.



Most entrepreneurs start with a great idea and some expertise in a particular area. They become successful entrepreneurs when they pair their great idea and expertise with money. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs lack the investment capital to launch their business. Fortunately, there are investors who do have the capital but do not have the “great idea” and are waiting for just the right “expert” to stand behind. In addition to being exceptionally capable at doing or making something, there are some things that a business owner can do to get the necessary financial backing to grow their business.
·         Client or customer interest. Getting the interest of clients can translate into getting interested investors. Not only do clients want a good price, but they especially want a high quality product. Clients want a product that is superior to its competitors; a product that has features that others are missing; a product that is better made and lasts longer. An investor wants to clearly see a quality product’s niche in a large marketplace.

·         Excellent service. Clients want good customer service, and investors want to see satisfied customers. As a business is starting up, there are bound to be hiccups. A good customer service plan is a plan that shows that customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance. Good customer service puts the person before the product. Correcting problems with the product in a friendly and timely manner will make the customer happy. A happy customer gives free advertising, and a happy customer is likely to become a repeat customer.

·         Quality product, quality team. Clients might not be interested in the details behind how their product is made, but they do expect a high quality product that does what it should. Investors, on the other hand, are very aware that good products are made by exceptional people. Because of this, investors expect a team of experts to make sure the desired products are delivered to the public in a timely manner. From concept, to production, to delivery, and into the hands of the customer, investors want to know that there is someone on the team every step of the way who not only knows exactly what they are doing but can claim that they are one of the best at what they do.

·         Flexible, proactive professionals. Clients and investors need business professionals who are flexible and good at solving problems. As problems arise or situations change, entrepreneurs need to adjust quickly. A team of experts who understands its product well has a better chance bouncing back more quickly than a less experienced and capable team.

·         Technologically savvy. Today’s marketplace also demands that entrepreneurs are technologically competent. Investors are going to expect potential business partners to implement the latest technological advances to run their business. Even a wedding cake artist needs to order supplies, keep track of sales and payroll, do taxes, advertise, etc. Clients expect the convenience that technology affords them, and investors know that today’s entrepreneur cannot own and operate a business without it.
Knowing what customers want and giving them something that exceeds their expectations again and again is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur. Giving them what they want means providing a high quality product that changes as the customers desires and needs change. Investors will become business partners to the entrepreneur who can continually deliver what customers want.
Currently, Kowerk is helping over 100 local area businesses realize their business goals in West Palm Beach, Florida. Clearly, they are anxious to assist entrepreneurs and businesses at every stage develop and grow.

Announcing the Campaign to Provide Funding to a Growing Political Party



Help provide funding to the Restoration Party to break ground on campaign headquarters

Denver, CO  – March 12, 2015 – Ralph Tingle, Jr, and his wife Ashley, co-chairpersons of The Restoration Party, an up-and-coming new political party, announces its campaign to raise funding to break ground on their campaign headquarters and to begin building political campaigns across the nation.

In order to reach their funding goal of $250,000, the Restoration Party is offering in return for donations of $100 and more sets of pre-filled Easter Eggs starting with $100 donations up through $10,000. The regular non-sale price per egg is set at $1, so backers are being offered a 50% discount just in time for the Easter holiday.

The funding received through their IndieGoGo crowd fund campaign will go to purchasing the location for their campaign headquarters as well as working toward finding top candidates for office and provide marketing and advertising campaigns for them. Any additional funding will go to continuing to build the political party and providing leadership options for today's American people.

10 Key Pitfalls Entrepreneurs Should Avoid to Maintain a Sustainable Business



Success of a business depends upon many factors. A crucial one of these is your attitude and vision as an entrepreneur. Starting up your own business is an exciting idea but also somewhat unnerving. You may be new to the game or facing new challenges. The question becomes: how does an entrepreneur make his or her business successful?

On the basis of studies conducted by the University of Tennessee and Gallup research, here is a list of key pitfalls every entrepreneur should avoid in order to make his/her venture successful.

  1. Lack of Vision- Why do you want to start a business? What are your goals and priorities? You should have logical and sound answers to these questions. It defines your vision as an entrepreneur and gives direction to your venture. If you are unsure about your vision, your business has dim chances of survival.

  1. Lack of Human Element in the Business- The human element of a business involves a sense of fulfillment for the entrepreneur and any contractors or employees. It can also reflect your clients' desires and needs. It tends to involve a "greater purpose", something more important than simple profit. It brings value to your services and client loyalty to your business. If a business ignores the importance of human element, the prospect of success is low. Sure, making money is a principal objective of your business; but when it becomes an obsession, human element evaporates from the business. The result is that customer, vendor, or employee relations may get impaired. This can kill your business. In order to avoid this, you must give due attention to customer expectations while making decisions and provide opportunity for yourself, your vendors, and/or your employees to meet a higher more valuable need while supporting your business.

  1. No Research before Starting Business- It is recommended that you do some research about the area of business you want to enter. It will give you a better view of your particular industry and help you proceed carefully so that you garner positive outcomes along the way. If you take the plunge before doing any research, you might jeopardize your venture by starting up from the wrong location or launching wrong products and services with no demand.

  1. Counter-productive Ideas- For the success of a business, you must have ideas that unify and make sense for your business objectives rather than ones that are counter productive. Having too many unrelated ideas is unlikely to give right direction to your venture.

  1. Lack of Patience- Success is not an instant phenomenon. It takes time. You might have a great idea and expect success to follow immediately, but in business you have to be patient. It takes time for a business to settle and make a reputable place in the market. Give some time to your business by adopting a wait and watch strategy. If you give up early on due to lack of patience, your business can never flourish.

  1. Bad Budgeting- Before starting up a business, you must keep aside your personal and family expenses and ensure that you have a separate budget for business. In the absence of proper budgeting, you might be compelled to take hasty decisions in order to manage your expenses. It can prove detrimental to the progress of your business.

  1. Too Much Confidence- If you are too confident about your ideas and abilities in running your business, you may miss out on tips and advice from experienced mentors. He/she might give you some practical advice about running your business which can prove beneficial for you in the future. Also, knowing where your weaknesses lie can help you to hire or outsource to compensate for them.

  1. No Knowledge of Market- It is recommended that you are aware of the market trends before you start your business. Be familiar with the potential market needs and your competitors in the market. It will help you assess the market well and do better business.

  1. Obsession with Your Product/Service- Often, entrepreneurs get obsessed with their product or service thinking that it is perfect. They may ignore feedback from their customers which is harmful for the business. Your product or service is being used by your customers, so only they can tell you whether it is good or not. Assess the feedback of your clients or customers and determine if it points out a valid area needing improvement -- and then improve.

  1. Desire to Control- In the beginning, you can manage various things without anyone’s help, but this is not possible when your business expands. You must accept this fact and hire an efficient team to do different kinds of tasks. If you desire to control everything single-handedly, it will take away your focus from more important things which are critical for a growing business.

No one can really predict whether or not your business will be successful. Avoiding these pitfalls can give you a head start and help you achieve the success you desire.

Announcing the Campaign to Provide Clean Drinking Water to African Villages



Help save children's lives by providing desperately needed water treatment units

Springfield, VA  – March 10, 2015 – The Sharkawi Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works hard to improve people's living conditions through providing water treatment units, announces their campaign to provide clean drinking water to people living in three villages in Ghana.

884 million people around the world lack access to safe water. (United Nations, "Water for the World." UN News Center. Accessed February 25, 2014) https://www.un.org/en/sustainablefuture/water.shtml
An estimated 622,000 children under the age of five die each year from diarrheal diseases globally, a majority of which are water-related. "World Health Organization (WHO). (2012)."

Every day, people are forced to face these harsh living conditions in remote villages and towns.

At Sharkawi Foundation, they believe that it’s a basic human right for everyone to have access to clean drinking water and electricity at all times. The mission of Sharkawi Foundation is to improve these living conditions and help save innocent children's lives by providing the resources necessary to access clean drinking water.

Through their recent Indiegogo project, the goal is to provide water purification equipment to provide safe clean drinking water to villages that are in need. This will help improve health conditions and save lives. They will focus on Nsakyi, Otiakrom and Bodumase, three villages located in Ghana that are farming communities with a high poverty rate.

Sharkawi Foundation is seeking funding in the amount $100,000 to provide water treatment equipments and solar systems to operate the pumps and the purification systems, since there are no reliable electric services available in these villages in Ghana.

As a nonprofit organization,  Sharkawi Foundations urges and invites you to be part of this humanitarian campaign to save children’s lives in Africa by participating in this campaign to secure funds to buy water purification units to villages in Ghana that are in high poverty rate areas, and are suffering from the lack of clean drinking water.
