I am doing my best to lead an authentic lifestyle, filled with openheartedness and bravery.  Thinking on my life, there have been countless subconscious moments in which I’ve re-considered and regretted the enormity of mistakes, errors, and misunderstandings that I have created.  [Read: I have been stubborn and slow to change.] But anymore, I’m not a big fan of dwelling on errors.  Now that I’m more aware of what life and love mean to me, I find myself working each day to practice a type of positive, wholesome, and creative energetic lifestyle that will heal me, and also sustain the communities that I rely upon.

Dang it, the bees are dying.

In reality, Honey bees — one of 20,000+ types of bees — are dying faster than they can repopulate.  This is an important point for every human to understand.  The bees must survive.  Or, our quality of life and health will decline.  Food will become very expensive to purchase, and many types of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and spices will not be available for consumption under most circumstances.

I continue to share news and updates about my various projects, here, at Alisha’s Blog and also at the PSM website.  It’s a fact that I dream of saving and restoring the bees and the food supply chain.  I dream of creating, brokering, and enjoying a system of community abundance that is sustainable.  I am working to earn money towards this just cause, to support the non-profit organization that I founded in 2012, called Pollinator Support Movement (PSM).  I have come to terms with the reality that bees projects of most any sort are not sponsored.  So, I am okay with raise the money for the projects, myself.  I am happy to have found such deep passionate about something.  What a challenge!

Envision “beeBay” not eBay

Some of my business and artistic projects have been developed over time from concepts that I have worked-on for years.  Since 2000, through the ups and downs of learning to work efficiently as a self-employed person, I have become more adept at researching and developing sustainable business systems.  I have consistently utilized my abilities to create a framework; whereas, I believe can help model how to save the planet by first saving the bees.  I am a fan of transparency, especially when it comes to sharing my collective-benefitting, “alternative economic template”.  This template is a concept called Restorative Retail (RR).  (RR) is a way for me to entice people to spend their money wisely; in order to save the bees and our communities.

Back to square one

My driving desire to lead an authentic lifestyle, filled with openheartedness and bravery, suggests that I should first help to save the bees and educate our communities.  I would do this so that I can survive long enough to fulfill my dreams.  My soul is telling me that I should continue with this work.

The screen shot image featured in this post shows some of the URLs that I have recently purchased.  These future websites might help me in some way to make all the money that is needed for successfully meeting the financial goals that will allow me to help the most and the fastest.

Please wish me luck, that I will be able to know how to do what it is that I am doing.  And, continue to find the people that will help me in the task.  Stay tuned for updates on my progress.  If you feel inclined, please share the PSM FB page, and tell your friends about Alisha’s Blog.

Earning Money To Save The Bees

Written by Alisha “Bee”  |  Alisha is a writer, artist, and social entrepreneur.

Let’s get to it.  

I am an entrepreneur trying to raise money for a bunch of projects.  I create art, music, products, and produce sustainable, community-inspired projects that help to save and restore bees and the food supply chain.  I need your continued support, as I try to build an online and offline-compatible system of doing my own business; which benefits our many ailing communities.  [Read: Social entrepreneurship] #dothework #joybasedcommerce

This post will act as my Spring newsletter.  Here is some progressive news about my Day of Wedding Timeline Organizer Flashcards (“wedding flashcards”) product.  I am giving away half of the net proceeds on this product; to Pollinator Support Movement.  Fifty-percent (50%) of net online sales from this product will benefit (fund) Pollinator Support Movement‘s educational community improvement projects.

Wedding Day Technology (campaign)

My initial “Wedding Flashcards.com” website is being cross-promoted through an ad campaign project that I will be producing.  This ad campaign will aim to widely advertise to North American brides and their wedding team.  All of this ad hoopla will promote sales of my “Day of Wedding Timeline Organizer Flashcards” professional planning tool (product).  Visit weddingflashcards.com to visit the current product website.  Note: sales are not currently being fulfilled.  This website is forever in production and editing.  But, I do plan to update all product web designs as soon as my new start-up budget, or, opportunity allows.

I hope to be able to hire my colleague project partner, Mark Short, as my ad campaign’s creative direction supervisor and designer.  Or, whatever he would want to do.  Mark is one of my favorite creative expert professionals.

Recently, Mark gave me two points on image crop and color for my current (new) wedding flashcards ad campaign concept piece.  I took his easy advice, and then added some conceptual elements to make this image into a sales ad (flyer).  I am already wondering: “If I give this conceptual ad to Mark, how would he interpret it in his own design style?”

Below is the conceptual ad design that I just mentioned:

Re: Ad campaign (Continued):

“My new, promotional ad campaign called, “Wedding Day Technology.com” will feature spacey-sustainable modern art as inspirational themes, and will promote the “wedding flashcards” product.  This campaign will also be cross-promoted at the recently purchased URL, Wedding Planning Forms.com.”  Alisha M.

And, in other news:

Personal Business Card Lesson: My belief is that any business card design of mine should be fun and help to tell my story (for an affordable price).  My moo.com cards have arrived.

If you would like to learn more about moo, please click this link, so that Pollinator Support Movement gets my 50% net profit donation!

For this first lot of business cards, I have placed three images from my Pollinator Support Movement work, in Berkeley, CA (sometimes with Don “Bee” Hughes, a.k.a. Dragon Master), on the back of the cards.  On the front of the slightly-oversized business cards (with rounded edges/corners), I have placed a selfie image that I took while on a hike with Mark.  (Notice how I actually look happy.  I actually am a happy person.)  Oh, and there is a lot of exciting save the bees activism news coming from Berkeley, CA, involving Don Bee.  (I will be writing about it, soon.)  But, I digress.

I’ll post a snapshot of the business cards, soon.  For now, this is one of the three images which I’ve used as the other side to my new business cards: “Don Bee and Alisha Bee in Berkeley CA 2012”

More updates will continue to come as I get further along in all of my projects.
