It was and going to be quite challenging ...
It made me feel a bit nauseous yet excited ...
... and it had something to do with kids.
No I'm not pregnant ha! :)
Early this week I published my very first issue of Kids Nation magazine. It's a free bi-monthly mag dedicated to empowering kids around the world.
It was actually something that I had in mind about 12 years ago. But I didn't think much of it, because it all seemed impossible - my limited resources, budget, time, etc at that time.
Twelve years on, my resources, budget and time are still limited :)
I completely forgot about that dream until a few months ago when I was applying for a funding.
It really got me thinking:
What was the purpose of my business, other than making money?
Where would I see myself in 5, 10 years time?
What legacy did I want to leave?
Those were BIG questions for me. As I was thinking about all these questions, I remembered again about my dream of having a mag that is positive for the next generations.
So ... Kids Nation was born.
It was an exciting journey indeed! I got to meet (virtually) contributors and writers from different parts of the world.
|Yay! So happy to meet these people:)|
Lots of thinking, planning and coffees to keep me awake :) Tons of love and support from my families and friends.
You can read the magazine for free here
and please kindly spread the word about this mag :)
Today, I also want to ask you the same questions:
What's the purpose of your job or business, other than making money?
Where do you see yourself in 5, 10 years time?
What legacy do your want to leave?
