Launching the scholarship bondbreaking advising service
Months ago, I wrote about wanting to set up a simple service to advise anyone considering breaking their scholarship bond. I have thought a lot about it. I thought through many ideas for how to position it. Should I buy a new domain? Should I write a collection of articles first? Should I have testimonials from happy clients?
Basically, I ran into the problem that many of us face with projects: I failed to ship.
Last week, a total stranger emailed me for advice on her bond. This hasn’t happened in awhile. (Been getting a lot more startup related requests lately.) But I was reminded of what I had set out to do in the first place. Pay forward my good fortune at being able to break my own bond years ago. Put myself out there. Help people live more fulfilled lives. Help people as only I can.
She didn’t need me to build a fancy website. She didn’t need me to establish my credentials in some bio. She didn’t even need a form. All she did was find my posts on bondbreaking - hooray for the power of search - and email me. Hopefully she got something useful from my exchange with her. I am immensely grateful for her trust and for the chance to help her. (If you could spend 90 minutes of your time and have a stranger tell you that you are one of the most inspiring people she has come across in her life, you, too, would do the same.)
So I have decided to just ship. Here I am hanging out the shingle.
It’s here! Check it out:
