Crowdfunding



 Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? Do you need some seed money but your friend and families are not in a financial position to help you. Crowd funding can be an option for you. So, what is crowd funding? It is a way of asking people to support your vision. At the end of the day, you just might need some extra coins. I am not endorsing any one particular site, but here are some places on the web:

Jamaica Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) contributing to reducing Global warming.



The involvement of young people globally in the understanding and addressing of climate change is fundamental to future success in the reduction of global warming. It is universally acknowledged that a reduction of climate change will result when young people take an interest in their environment.  As the Jamaica STEM UK contact I will collaborate with Institutions in Jamaica and Institutions in the United Kingdom (UK) to promote the importance of embedding STEM subjects in the Jamaican education system. The Jamaica government working is already working in partnership with the European Union and the United Nations Environment Programme in a project aiming to reduce the risks caused by natural hazards and to increase the resilience of vulnerable areas in Jamaica due to climate change predictions, we will see rapid changes in rainfall distribution and rising sea level which are growing concerns for the people and the Jamaican government.

Demonstration and experimentation in school STEM workshops will build the confidence and offer more understanding of the need to use environmentally friendly generation of energy and to reduce the use of fossil fuels without too much disruption to local communities in the fourteen parishes of Jamaica. I have already spoken to Three Higher Education Institutions in the UK with the objective to a partnership with a well established Higher Education Institution in Jamaica on STEM initial Teacher training courses. In my present role, I am promoting collaboration with STEM institutions in the UK and Jamaica to promote joint Research ventures into understanding the importance of STEM subjects into our Universities initial Teacher training and STEM workshops in STEM High School academies.

In Jamaica like the UK we are very serious about tackling global warming leading to climate changes which will have devastating effect on our wild life and indeed agriculture, “I am calling to Jamaican Diaspora members and friends of Jamaica involved in STEM in the UK to email on douglasmorganuk@yahoo.co.uk. The STEM initiative can eventually link young people to apprenticeships schemes to ‘earn as you learn’
Thanking you in anticipation.

10 Entrepreneur Explosion Mindsets


The mindset of an entrepreneur is unique. That is why so few of them are in existence. This is not a bad thing because we can’t all be a Steve Jobs or Usain Bolt. What is exceptional will never be ordinary. Cultivate a different way of thinking. Here is a blueprint to consider:

1.            Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, and wear the fancy clothes. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

2.            Over prepare then go with the flow.

3.            Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

4.            The most important sex organ is the brain.

5.            No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

6.            Frame every so-called disaster with these words “in five years, will this matter?’

7.            Always choose life.

8.            Forgive

9.            What other people think of you is none of your business.

10.          Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.

10 Entrepreneur Vibration Thinking




Why are entrepreneurs unique? They don’t go along to get along. They see a need and find a way to capitalize on it. How does that idea vibrate into a profit making venture? Meditate on these vibes:

1.            Make peace with your past, so it won’t screw up the present.

2.            It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

3.            Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

4.            If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

5.            Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but worry? God never blinks.

6.            Take a deep breath; it clams the mind.

7.            Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

8.            Whatever doesn’t kill you really does me you stronger.

9.            It’s never too late to happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

10.          When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

Do NOT Marry Someone Until You Can Honestly Answer These 10 Questions

You *must* have these internal conversations before walking down the aisle. Maybe you've been together a while and are considering taking a big step, or perhaps you just started seeing one another and aren't sure if you should stay the course. Whatever your situation, a check-in is never a bad thing. Read on for 10 tough questions to ask about your relationships before moving forward.

1. Is for better or worse making me better or worse?

Does your partner encourage you to be your best self, or does he or she get intimidated by any triumphs and feel more secure when you're not putting your best foot forward?

2. Do we really accept one another?

There will always be things you want to change about the people in your life, but no one should be in a situation where they feel they aren't allowed to be authentic and accepted as the unique, special (yet flawed) person they are.

3. Who am I?

How can you know if your partner is a good match if you have no idea who you are?

4. Am I happy to be in this relationship?

The idea of sharing a life together is not to find someone to complete you or make you happy. But let's face it: being unhappy at home can seep into other areas of your life . . . and fast. If you're always fighting or just generally not feeling great about your twosome, it doesn't mean you have to bail out (counseling might be a good option) but marrying someone in the hope that it changes things is a bad, bad idea.

5. Am I feeling trapped?

Do you really want to be in this relationship the majority of the time or do you find yourself wishing for a way out? Do you stay because you've invested time or are you really invested in your mate?

6. What am I doing to hold us back?

Maybe you could be more attentive, more thoughtful, quicker to let things go, or the first to bring up going to counseling. Whatever it is, take this as your sign to step up.

7. Is this relationship balanced?

Do you feel you're both on the same page in terms of compromise, care, support and sacrifice? Or is one of you doing most of the giving while the other just sits with their hand out?

8. Can we have fun together?

Have you ever seen two people sit across from one another in silence at brunch as though they are being forced to walk through their day together? Not. fun.

9. Can we have fun apart?

Co-dependency ain't cute, y'all.

10. Why am I in this relationship?

Is it because you respect, love, trust, and value the person you are with? Or because you're afraid of being alone, worried about finances, or have built a life you're scared to leave?

The benefits of Bitt Coin


By Janice K. Maxwell

Multiple streams of income is no longer an option, it is a necessity. Entrepreneur must be a way of life for islanders and diasporans.  No longer are companies hiring for 40 years. Flexibility is the new paradigm in the working world. In today’s working world many companies are only employing part time or contracting the work. Getting paid for service rendered has a new paradigm shift from standard currency. 

Bitt coin distribution will be cheaper, faster and better for the Caribbean community.  It allows for value transfer to occur digitally. These new financial transfer companies will look at the fundamental legacy based systems that serve a monetary purpose and make the system more efficient. It will be more stable and mobile transfer with integrity. Technology now comes to the world of finance in the Caribbean with ease.

Bitcoin is a pair to pair electronic cash system that went through a process using electricity. No one person or entity has full control; therefore, making it transferable and accountable. It serves as a network protocol i.e http, smtp and as a value system. This became a store of wealth and was designed around deflationary principles. Only 21 million bit coins will ever exist over a 64 year period. Bit coin is an open source program that was released on the internet that a community built around and it started to serve a purpose that create good utility for consumers. Every sequence that the bit goes through will do so on a block chain.


This is a series of transactions that is chronologically timed stamped one after the other and stored in a container called the block chain, which produces a block chain. That block is tied to other blocks. The next chronical block is in the form of a math sequence called merkle roots. This means everyone will have the same uniform ledger that can not be altered or destroyed. It also means that central banks can issue out their national currency digitally on the block chain. Digital cash issuance means you can prove the validation process. Consumers can get their goods using digital dollars visa vie having money on their mobile phones. This will reduce on the fees that take away from the actual amount of remittance that was originally sent as well as reduction in time for the funds to be available.
