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. Hello! My dream is to be a photographer and filmmaker. My obstacle is that I am a vet (DVM, MSc)… and I don’t know how to take the leap without knowing anyone on that field. And I also think that I am wasting my previous studies by pursuing my dream. I’m from Uruguay, South America. If there’s someone out there with an idea of how to achieve it, I’d be glad to hear from you!

    I send a hug to all the dreamers,
    Matilde 🙂

    • I have a friend who earns his money as an Alexander Teacher and writes books on that subject. But he also writes screenplays and plays for the stage as well as directing and acting in his own films (made on a very small budget) and he also auditions and gets parts in off-Broadway plays. I think it might be easier and less time consuming to keep your job (as a veterinarian?), and at the same time be a photographer and make your own films as my friend does. That way you wouldn’t be wasting all your training, you wouldn’t be completely broke, and you would find your own people in that field as he did. Go to colleges with theater & film departments and ask for people to be in your films and plays. They’ll understand that they can’t be paid and it’s good for their future to be on the stage and in films anywhere.

  2. Hey there!

    My wish is to write my final thesis.

    My obstacle:
    I feel like nobody cares.
    My social netwerk is not able to support me in this. And I’m not talking about help with content. I’m actually sure that I can do it. As strange as it might is, I’m searching for someone checking on me. Someone caring that I’ll make it. Writing a short message regularly, just checking: “hey, did you do anything? Any progress?” “Hey, I was so happy to read that you wrote 5 sentences! I’ll check on you tomorrow!”
    Or someone in a similar situation. I check on you, you check on me. Doesn’t have to be deep friendship, but caring for each other in this matter, supporting each other, so we can come closer to finishing.
    My deadline is in July, although I hope to be done before.

    If there’s someone out there willing to care or with an other idea or if you just have an idea where else to search: I’d be glad to hear from you!
    All the best, Lina
