Brainstorming and accountabilitiy

An Idea Party is an opportunity to brainstorm, get ideas for your goal or dream, or discover what you really love to do. Joyanna Anthony is Barbara Sher's Canadian Director.  Barbara, wrote "Wishcraft", "I Could do Anything If Only I Knew What it Was" and many more.   Did you know that about 70% of the population doesn't know what that is. We share ideas to help you discover that passion and how to do it in baby steps. At our last Idea Party one opera singer sang her "pitch" which lit a light for another performer. Many were introduced to using social media to help promote what they do including a clothing designer.

Are you one of those people who love dong twenty things at one time.  You are called "scanners" and at this meeting we'll show you how to get one thing going. Attendees get 3 minutes to stand up, share what they are doing or want to do, where they have a challenge or problem, then Joyanna facilitates the brainstorming and collectively the group solves the challenge. People think laterally, out of the box and give that person new ways to reach their dream or find their passion.
It's a process, and attendees were challenged to take one of the ideas and do some sort of action on it and report back on the meetup site. Look forward to our next meetup on Thursday, April 24th, more to come here.

    Again, many thanks to all our idea makers - several dreams were launched into a more real form in that they got ideas, connections and solutions to their queries... Now it's about follow up, and being accountable to someone that they do it. Our next event is Thurs. May 22nd, bring friends, the more the merrier. And many thanks to our Door Lady KJAER NELETIA PEDERSEN - clothing designer and creator
