How Does the Online Idea Party Work?

You have a dream or a wish, and an obstacle to getting there. (If you don’t think you know your wish, work through my kick-starter and read this post. To learn why you must put logic aside to find your dream, read the following.)

The online Idea Party is here to help you – and the other fellow party goers – with your wishes and obstacles.

Voices from Success Teams and Idea Parties:

Having a team to report to and hearing what everybody did each week is very exciting. It’s kept me moving all year. In the past I made some good starts on my own, but found, every time, when the energy ran out, I ran out. Now it doesn’t run out.

I would do a painting a year, a sketch a year. If it was only me I know I would never do it. Having to tell you makes all the difference. It’s crazy why I didn’t do this years ago, it’s so easy all of a sudden.

  1. My biggest dream has been to become a scientist. I took a little detour after high school since I was not completely sure of that dream and had other interests besides. I studied traditional music for 3,5 years (I am on an academic leave, but I will not graduate since it will take another year and I’d rather move on with my life). Now I am working as a guitar teacher to actually afford anything.

    I have found a perfect major to study in the Netherlands, but I can’t afford it. It’s Cognitive Sciences and Artificial Intelligence. From what I’ve read about the course, it incorporates all of my interests that I’ve had and also has the mathematical and computer science side to it (I was very good at maths in school but didn’t realise I actually also loved it until much later, the same goes to computer science and programming).

    Since my family is not supportive I have no means to actually pursue this bachelor’s degree in the Netherlands (if I manage to get in). It costs 2060 euros per year (3 years). I’ve still to research similar courses elsewhere, but so far this was the first option I found and it immediately ignited a spark in my eyes.

    Does anyone know of any scholarships or grants a 22 year-old Estonian female could apply to having been away from science for a couple of years, but who is eager to learn and get back on track?

    • If you have a moderate command of the English language, there are free online classes at MIT that get you quite far in maths. If you learn on your own and et some command of higher maths, then score extremely well on entrance or scholastic exams, you will be offered a scholarship somewhere, maybe even a better fitting program than the one you’re looking at in the Netherlands. Self-study could get you quite far in other ways as well: your interests and studies can bring you in contact with other thinkers who can help give you advice or a leg up. Maths are easily learned on your own if you have the desire, hence the suggestion for online format to start. Good luck!!

  2. Hi everybody,

    My biz partner and I have a group of artists that all need a warehouse space to use together, cooperating together and enriching the space and the art therein together.

    We need a space large enough to host a scenic design studio, a photography studio, a sound stage and some offices at least.

    It’s a big dream and a big ask, but my dream is to make this happen for all of us together so that we can change a whole bundle of lives and create some real differences in the art community.

    Obstacles include money and construction, legalities, and fear. lol.

    If anyone has any offerings, that would be sweet. We are open to suggestions, not just physical help! Thank you!!

  3. Hi everyone! My dream is to start an improvisational choir of 4 to 8 people to put together a concert program and perform aroumd the world.

    Onstacles: finding singer dedicated to a project like this. 2.money to pay for a project like this. 3. Someone to manage and get bookings 4. Income… How would i pay my bills?

    This is one hot dream. Ive met a few singers who could do it but they are married, have children or a job and can’t commit to it. Need help.

    • Hey Megan!

      I love singing, and could send you some recordings if you’re interested. Every year, I quit my job to travel, and I like the idea of traveling and singing/performing. So I can up and take off this summer, and even graduate this Spring Semester, so could continue traveling after the summer is over.

  4. Hello dear tribe-

    My intention/wish is to be gifted a stay at the Gerson Clinic (or similar) so that I may revive this ill body, so that I may become well and strong enough to continue the work I’m meant to do on this earth and to continue to accompany my children as they grow into adulthood.

    Another intention/wish is to be gifted with a vehicle so that I may get around in a bubble that is temperature controlled and noise controlled and fragrance-free.

    Another intention/wish is to be gifted with a visit or two or three to the dentist to take care of the cavities that have developed in the past four years of my illness.

    Another intention/wish is to be gifted a custom-tailored program to address the c-ptsd that has developed on account of the gunmen incidents.

    I have set my intentions; may the universe get behind me.

    Thank you for considering my wishes!

  5. My burning desire is to have a large art space where children can come and create.
    What’s stopping me:
    A space.
    Money to pay for the space and art supplies.
    A salary of $50,000 to support myself.
    Thank you for your kind support.
