Welcome to "Create with Katie": A multi-media web show + collaborative community...
- We're moving the media spotlight to cover the GOOD NEWS of people and projects making a positive difference in the world (YOU might even be one of them)...
- We're rallying community support behind these stories to help their messages have a greater reach and an even greater impact...
- And we're uniting a community together to start collaborating on future causes, projects, and businesses that will help create a better world.
Amidst the darkness of the personal and global problems that are pervasive in our world right now, we're here to be a LIGHT at the end of the tunnel...
It's time for more media to focus on the GOOD happening in the world, and use it's influential power to instigate more creative action and collaboration.
And we are here to do just that. We want to help tell the "new story" of the possible future we can create together, inspired by the creative change already happening in different communities all over the world.
It's a big vision. And we believe in it wholeheartedly. Myself, my team, and our active community of over 400+ collaborators have already been working together on this show and platform...
And now we're inviting you to join us and help make this project happen...
More About Me:
My name is Katie Freiling, and I want to be a VOICE and an ADVOCATE for ushering in this new world.
I have a deep love for life and I care about people and the planet.
I believe that we have the power to choose and create a new life story, personally and collectively.... that we always have the power to choose love over fear.
I feel the pain of the world... I know that most of humanity and the planet is suffering. We've been living in a "disconnected" culture, where fear, competition, and greed have been in power.
In my past, I've felt the pain of disconnection, debilitating fear, overwhelming self doubt, insecurities, and the suppression of my voice and authentic self-expression.
I've been on quite a journey of loving and reconnecting to myself, my power, and my voice... and now I feel called to help be a voice for love and hope in the world.
I believe that we are all intrinsically interconnected with each other and the planet. We could not survive, or even exist on our own. We need each other... now more than ever.
Like other species on the planet that migrate together towards a common goal, it's time for humanity to come together and create a more connected, compassionate, sustainable, and collaborative world. In fact, the need to do so is becoming more and more urgent.
I'm so passionate about "Create with Katie" because I know we can use media and storytelling to create greater understanding, compassion, connection, and hope for the future... inspiring collaborative action, and the creation of a new story together :)
Here's a little bit more about my background...
I've been an internet entrepreneur, video blogger, and coach for the last 6 years, helping tens of thousands of purpose-driven entrepreneurs spread their messages online.
Here's my website to learn more about my past projects and video blog: http://www.KatieFreiling.com
And here's my FB profile: http://www.facebook.com/katiefreiling
I've spent the last 2 years traveling around the world, growing, expanding, transforming, and connecting with many people from all walks of life.
I am now ready to step into greater leadership and service by being a media voice and advocate for the people and projects that are creating this new world in their own unique ways.
This vision came to me 2 years ago in a profound dream... and now the time is right to turn this "dream" into a reality.
More About the Vision For "Create with Katie":
The vision is to travel around the world, following faith and curiosity, to discover emerging stories that are making an impact. We are following the signs to our first international location in Brazil, starting in December, 2013.
We will use video and other forms of creative media to tell these stories documentary-style with clarity, emotion, and impact.
We'll then rally community support behind these stories. Depending on what each particular project needs, we might collaborate on ideas, promote, campaign for funds, or seed new projects.
We already have a starter community of over 400+ people collaborating on the show and the vision for a collaborative platform:
Please join us: http://facebook.com/groups/katiescollaborators
As viewers start watching the show, they will be encouraged to join the community, share their personal story, and start taking action.
We'll be engaging our community with ongoing conversations and collaborative projects to work on, helping people feel more connected and purposeful.
People who already have creative visions and projects will also be able to get collaborative support inside the community.
As we start creating and collaborating together, working towards common goals, deeper bonds will be formed, and the community will become stronger and stronger as a result. People that create together, stay together :)
Our Financial Model:
Our financial model will include crowd-funding, sponsorships, and the endorsement of specific products and services created by members of our community that are sustainable and of benefit to humanity.
For example, we know of several projects that are supporting young girls who are either victims of sex slavery or poverty and they are selling handmade products to empower a new way of life for themselves.
We also know of many innovative, tech products that will provide immense value to our personal growth, health, and businesses that we look forward to promoting.
By endorsing and retailing such items through our online store, we encourage a sustainable, emerging economic model.
Meet Our Creative Director:
I am so grateful to have Malek Houlihan on board as our creative director. He is a brilliant artist, musician, director, and community leader. He has decades of experience creating and directing successful music, web TV, and film projects.
He has a huge heart and is committed to co-creating, through this show and community, a safe space for more people to create freely.
What We Need:
This initial crowd-funding campaign is for creative development of the show.
For us to set up the basic structural elements of the show, enhance and refine our core concepts, and pay for production equipment, travel, and website design, we need and are asking for a seed fund of $15,000.
About one third of this will cover tour and travel expenses, one third will go to equipment and staff, and one third to programming, design, and editing.
We have already invested much time, energy, and money into the development and envisioning of this project... and need your help to take it to this next level.
Several of the perks include endorsements and thank you gifts that will reach a fairly large email list of purpose driven entrepreneurs, many of which also have lists, that may want to get involved in your mission, too.
Both myself and Malek Houlihan have offered private and group coaching, in addition to high-end video production as high end perks as well. I have had 6 years of internet business experience and Malek is a professional creative director, storyteller, and video producer.
Our goal is to give you perks that support and nurture the growth of what you are creating as well :)
We Are Asking You To Join Us:
Please support us in making this creative vision possible by donating and helping us spread the word. All donations and amounts are greatly appreciated :)
We believe in the power of crowd-funding as an innovative new business model, and again, plan on using crowd-funding to support many other projects on the horizon.
Your support here will help seed, grow, and nurture countless projects in the future. It will be a gift that keeps on giving.
Again, please share this campaign with your family, friends, and community who would love to see more good news. :)
Your contribution will not only help make this creative vision possible, it will ripple out and effect the lives and projects of many many people as the show grows.
Media and collaboration together have such an enormous potential for lasting impact. We are investing our full-time energy into this project because we believe in it. And we're asking you to take a little leap of faith, and believe in us by supporting, donating, and sharing.
Thank you so much! Blessings to you!With love,
