Author, Activist Explains Participation Economy
Michelle Williams is an author hoping to make a difference in the world and she needs your help! She is raising money on StartSomeGood.. Recently, I caught up with Michelle to learn more about her work; here’s what she told me:
What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?
We are in the midst of a big shift from passive consumer to active aware participant and this is transforming business, govt, education and society.
This book will give you the jewels and gems you need to understand what this means for us as individuals, looking at the benefits and the pitfalls we need to overcome in a new participation driven world.
“Participation is the New Consumption”.
How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?
To self-publish this book I need to raise $7,500.
I am at 33% of this target now and have 12 days to go, with the campaign to end November 12, 2014.
Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?
The US National Security office says individual empowerment will become the dominant force and will help solve some of our mounting global issues.
This is a book for many but is more a piece to understand how these changes affect all of us, how they are linked from participant driven education, to government services designed with the community and business driven by community with an empowered consumer driving ethics.
This book will show individuals how they can navigate this new participation driven world.
