The parade theme is Encinitas86! Encinitas celebrates 30 years since becoming a City in 1986. In 1986, five unique communities turned into one great City, Encinitas.

The theme for NCEA is 30-years Of Sustainability. We will have an electric vehicle with a 6’ lighted Earth Globe as we did last year and there will be more details to come.

Did you know that in 1986 The world’s largest solar thermal facility, located in Kramer Junction, California, was commissioned. The solar field contained rows of mirrors that concentrate the sun’s energy onto a system of pipes circulating a heat transfer fluid. The heat transfer fluid was used to produce steam, which powered a conventional turbine to generate electricity. 

Plan to Bring a SIGN for your organization (or you can carry one of our earth-friendly signs). Wear green clothing or a holiday themed costume (tree, ornaments, animals, etc.). Please No Santas.

Muhammad Yunus Inspires Social Purpose Forum 10/21/2016

This spring I was  fortunate to attend the UCSD graduation and listen to the Keynote presentation by Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Banker to the Poor, 2010 Author of Building Social Business.

Here is the essence of his inspirational message –

“After completing my studies and returning to my native Bangladesh, I looked around and all I could see was problems, BIG PROBLEMS …. I was overjoyed, So excited. So many opportunities. So many challenging problems to solve.

and  then he said, “Students – Don’t go out and look for a job. Go out and look for a social problem to solve. You will find a lifetime of fulfillment and happiness.  

I think that applies to everyone at every stage of life. Muhammad Yunus was the inspiration for the upcoming  ‘Social Purpose Forum’

Theme for Speakers and Active Networking Presenters – “Be a Social Entrepreneur”.

Objective – Create an insightful and inspirational environment for the attendees and link them to the abundant local, regional and national resources.

Message – Very simple high level message that talks about the activities and challenges of getting your program going, the success and failures along the way. Offer to help.  Inspire the attendees to go out, take a risk and solve a problem.

The ‘Social Purpose Forum’ brings together many influential leaders to talk about Social Entrepreneurship and the synergy between 3 powerful movements

  • Sustainable Living that protects the earth
  • Purpose Driven, For Benefit or B Corporations.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility.

Crowdfunding Seminar: Raise Business Capital Using The JOBS Act

Title III Crowdfunding Regulation of the JOBS Act Seminar on Oct. 1, 2016. Sign up now!

It has been against the law to solicit funding from the general public until just this May when Title III – Crowdfunding Regulation – of the JOBS Act passed allowing us to go online and raise between $100,000 and $50 million to jumpstart or grow our business dreams. It is estimated that entrepreneurs will raise up to 3.2 Trillion Dollars by 2020!

“The Principles of Crowdfunding and How To Raise Capital Using The JOBS Act”

I am writing to invite you to an in-depth seminar on Saturday, October 1st from 10 am – 2 pm with a light lunch catered by GoodOnYa© Organics, Encinitas.

You will walk away with true enlightenment on how to raise money for your business. I will update this post with a map to the meeting room in Encintias, or just sign up and receive an automatic link.

We have 4 major speakers: 

Amy Wan, Esq., Securities Attorney specializing in Crowdfunding law and partner at Crowdfunding Lawyers. 

Ash Kumra, Author, speaker & entrepreneur and national authority on the Crowdfunding process.

Kris Buchanan, Olympic Athlete and founder of the first B-Corporation in the organic food industry in Encinitas, GOODONYA Cafe & Deli.

Matt Morrison, Multi-dimentional business man, leader in for-profit as well as non-profit, and an educator.

It is estimated that Crowdfunding will inject close to $65 Billion into the global economy in 2016, and over $3.2 Trillion by 2020. The Crowdfunding industry has raised capital for millions of individuals from college students to small business owners, to artists and filmmakers, to conscious food purveyors, to the next big tech explosion. 

Anything is possible!

2. The Agenda: AGENDA-CrowdVesting-Media.pdf

The purpose of producing the seminar is to support small business growth in America, create jobs, and allow benefactors to contribute to the success of other people’s lives. 

The Producer: Jerri Nachman

I am a member of the North County Eco-Alliance (NCEA) and designed and built this WordPress website last year. Also a member of Conscious Capitalism San Diego, a group of conscious business owners who are for-purpose, for-benefit, for-profit entrepreneurs.

You may know I have been a marketing director in the securities industry since 1999. Until the JOBS Act was signed into law in April of 2012, just us regular folks could not raise investment capital to either start or grow our own businesses. Now we can. Let’s do it together!

Looking forward to seeing you there! Any questions, please contact me. You can also forward this post to anyone you know would benefit from it.
