Idea Plotting at its core means taking action on your dreams.
Get the ideas out of your head and test them in the real world.
Learn from the experience of idea application.
Finally, take the experience of an idea acted upon to refine the original idea and iterate forward or level up to imaginations not yet fathomed until action and feedback are set in motion.
Excellence shall be the endgame but Idea Plotting–by nature–is about the path to excellence, the process, the work, a means to a quality end point.
The endgame, as we imagine it, is to be a relentless proactive positive force in the world providing vetted information to help those on the path seeking to have a positive impact on the social, natural and political world.
Actively engaging in the habits that will lead to transformational insights.
Idea Plotting relishes the pursuit, and celebrates the now achievable.
An ethic of playful execution of not yet known possibilites.
It’s the questions that drive us and the dreams that move us.
A do-aucracy. Start today.
Idea Plotting launched with little fanfare in the fall of 2016.
Slowly we have been adding content as we discover our interests and encounter feedback from readers.
The foundation of our first articles focused on crowdfunding because it is a trend we have been following and one many of our writers have been involved in via actively launching their own campaigns on platforms like Indiegogo and Kickstarter.
Idea Plotting will not be limited to only covering topics of crowdfunding. We started there because that is our current passion and what we know best.
Going forward, it is a natural progression to go from crowdfunding to stand alone ecommerce, on platforms like Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, and others.
Not to mention Fulfillment by Amazon, one of the easiest ways to continue to build a business after a crowdfunding campaign has been successful.
Our blog is currently focused on crowdfunding and the services surrounding having success with crowdfunding.
