Goals
$5 of $20,000 per month
I'm going to be very honest with you, I've always been scared of success. I've run away from many opportunities to build and create something. To commit to one thing. I would find excuses like, "It doesn't feel right", "I don't think we're on the same page", "I'm not ready yet". Funny enough, when you read them out without any context it sounds as if I'm running away from commitment, a relationship. And maybe I am. 

People usually think that I'm not scared because I change my life so much, I travel and I moved around quite a bit. The thing is, I am scared. I'm scared of failure. I'm scared of disappointing others. I'm scared that when the time comes I won't be a good enough bet to invest because of lack of clarity in my life. So I kept my dreams 'achievable', something that I can control.

The thing is I cannot control you, I can't show off many achievements in the past that will persuade you to invest in my newest in neither me or The SideCast. 

The only thing I can do is share my vision, my dream. Since I've done The Kennedys and started The SideCast with Coco, I've never felt more alive, happier. I don't get paid to do The SideCast; I do it at night, in the airport, on my friend's couch, in Bangkok, in Bali, in Lithuania, on my holiday, on the beach, in a tree... I'll even do it on my own if I have to (company is nice tho..). Why do this then, you ask? There might not be tangable rewards but there is an emotional happiness and a sense of fulfilment. Our passions define us, they connect us with the universe, the energy and the people. 

It would have been hard to imagine that I and Coco will start the morning with a glass of prosecco with Nusara Chinnaphasaen in her cosy home, dance in Chris Taylors living room while he’s jamming away, climb a tree with Andy Duncan and observe Cecilia Pignocchi as she graffitied the walls of NDSM. This podcast gave us the opportunity to truly get to know people outside their work environments and learn about their passions!

After each interview, I and Coco felt energized & would get into deep discussions about what we learned and how can we apply it. Talking with other people about their passions fueled our own creativity and inspired us to find time for our own personal ideas. That's why I hope that it might inspire each and every one of you to go for the project you've been postponing; write that script for a tv show you had, paint naked in your living room, knit winter socks just to relax. Whatever that passion is - go for it! So here I am. Going for mine. 

I've never realised how much my life was connected with passion projects until recently. It's like gold, spread around my life, showing me the way. Only once you see it, you realise it's always been there for you.

Now, I'm ready to share this joy I discovered with you. There are many dreams for The SideCast, first of all, keep the podcast rolling, travel and meet many inspiring people and learn about their passions, organize networking events, dinners. Secondly, I would like to financially support and help facilitate passion projects of single mothers, children without parents or living in rough social situations. Make passion projects less a privilege and more a lifestyle for everyone to express themselves and be creative with their lives. And lastly, open a creative retreat for passion projects in the countryside of Lithuania, buy a small country house surrounded by nature and a small local community. 

So here it is. My dream. My vision for SideCast. I've only shared this with a couple of people. Obviously, I'm scared but I'll like you to be scared with me. The power of passion has taken me this far but only with the power of support we can take it further.. 

I've always been scared of sucess, until now.
