Barbara Sher’s Idea Party


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. Hi, folks. Please don’t post your email addresses here — we don’t want anyone “scraping” them to send you spam. This Idea Party group will continue, as will Barbara’s book clubs, Hanging Out, Sher Success Teams, the Survival Guide, WriteSpeak, and all of her Facebook groups.

  2. I was so shocked and deeply sad to hear about Barbara. I encountered her books a few years ago and regret not being more involved in her community sooner..I feel so deeply about her philosophy and her passion to help others.
    I would love to be a part of an online group, hoping to carry out her legacy her..

    • Einav, we will continue, right here in Barbara’s Club. Barbara made sure we were ready to keep going, just in case this ever happened. We just did not expect it so soon.

  3. I’m sad… I’ve never met someone like Barbara who was delighted to write and didn’t regard it as a chore to help all of us.
    But I’m also newly inspired to carry what I’ve been given from Barbara’s lifetime mission of action – into further ACTION.
    Genius SAVING forever!
    Hope to offer up some of what I’ve already done to “study” Barbara’s inspirations and get some of my writing/outlining/ideas I wrote to those who are about to carry on Barbara’s offerings. Guess it will be Patty who I can offer these to…

    Maybe I’ll read Barbara’s book “I Could Do Anything” to my blind friend on the phone too.

    Is sweet to have played with so many of you here – despite the closed /boards forum at bsher website, are we converging on another site to go further?

    I value the interesting ideas and valuable resources so many of you have gleaned and gleefully tipped to us who could use them.

    Meanwhile, I’m on Brax(dot)me as @An8el if you’d like to find me instead of waiting for me to come back here. Brax is a perfect place for group chatting, because the chats are encrypted and as safe as who is participating. No email or phone number is required to sign up, only a password….but don’t forget that!

    Anyway – hope some of you who I’ve befriended see this and come and find me.

  4. I was so sorry to hear about Barbara. She has helped so many. Please include me in the list. Thank you.

  5. Wow. So sorry to hear Barbara Sher is no longer with us. I have loved reading her books and listening to her videos. This site has been a wonderful resource. Will miss her dearly. Would love to be part of an online group. RIP beautiful Barbara. Kathleen
