9 Great Reasons to Attend #313DLove Event on March 13

There are so many great things about this #313DLove event, it’s hard to even figure out what “the lead” should be. This list contains my favorite features of the event. Which one do you feel like should be the lead?

The Speakers- http://lovefordetroit.com/speakers.php, This is first here on this list, but I’m not 100% sure it’s actually the first in my heart. What I can say for sure is that I’m blown away by the caliber of folks that will be coming in and sharing their stories with you. While you can see many of these folks speak on the regular, this is slated to be a very unique talk for them. I can’t wait to hear what wisdom they will share.

The Charities- http://lovefordetroit.com/charities.php. I became a philanthropist before I became wealthy. While I don’t recommend it, I do think it is VERY important to give back. Regardless of what you have to give. As such, doing something that supports great LOCAL charities is very important and I sure am hopeful we can make some sort of impact for these great organizations.

The Venue- The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is such a cool place that not enough people know about. We did a little pre-event tour and took some video (http://youtu.be/WZ6p0dBfUEk) of the venue. Take a look at some of the 22,000 square feet of Awesomeness.

The After-Party- What can I tell you? I like after parties because of two main reasons: 1. A lot of work got done and it’s time to celebrate. 2. It’s a PARTY. HELLOOOOOOO. Who doesn’t like parties? There is some discussion on “revamping” the after-party for this event and moving it to a Detroit area restaurant. Details on that will be shared in the next 3 days.

Spreading the Love- I Love Love. Absolutely Love it. Seriously. Years ago I made the conscious decision to look at the world through eyes of love and it’s really made a difference in what I see. When more people can see what’s right as opposed to what’s wrong, we will live in a better place. Speaking of love, check out this cool video about #Loveweek: http://youtu.be/LLR-z7xCOFM

Trending Worldwide on Twitter- This isn’t as much of a goal anymore as it is the logical effect of this great cause we are creating. In 2012, it was awesome to see how this 55 second video (http://youtu.be/AoEdvgaFPiI) got an idea to spread so broadly that it trended the # #313DLove worldwide. We did it again in 2013. And now in 2014, we are seriously kicking it up a notch!

Inspiration over Motivation- There are tons of motivational events. This really isn’t one of them. Why? Because motivation comes from the outside and fades. Inspiration comes from the inside and lasts. You will find this event, and the people who take the stage, extremely inspirational. We think some of that will carry over into your everyday life.

The #’s 1 & 3- Part of the reason this whole thing started was the power in the numbers 1 and 3. 1 represents Leadership. 3 represents Creativity. I think it’s awesome to remind people about how many of us in the Detroit areas are Leaders and Creatives. For those of you who wish to point out the actual # is 7 that just proves that you are actually a 7 who needs to know and understand 😉

The First Year- This is the first year and there is something VERY cool about being associated with something in its first year. We intend to do many, many more of these.

#313DLove To Share Positive Stories About Detroit March 13

DETROIT – The world is paying attention to Detroit. During the past couple of years they’ve started to actually hear a few good things too. There are many other positive stories that fail to generate much buzz outside the metro area. The event is scheduled for March 13 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

“In 2012 we got the #313Dlove to trend worldwide on Twitter. No easy task,” said Terry Bean, who also founded Motor City Connect, a pioneering business networking group who meet online and in the real world. “We trended again in 2013. The idea was to get people to say what they love about Detroit. And we’ll do it again this year. Instead of just tweeting, we are inviting people to join us for a day filled with inspirational discussions from people making it happen in our area.”

The afternoon will be filled with inspirational stories from local professionals, artists, non-profit execs and thought leaders. The common theme among them is they choose to make a difference and continually make that choice. This is but one of the lessons attendees and viewers will take from this event.

Some others are:

Leadership
Creativity
Forming a stronger Identity
Community
Forgiveness
Entrepreneurship

Starting in late afternoon and spilling over into the evening, a cocktail reception held in the rotunda of the museum will let attendees connect, reflect and contemplate who should be selected to speak at #313DLove 2015.

“We are thrilled that the inaugural #313Dlove event will take place this year as Detroit celebrates her 313th birthday,” said Bean. “We are even more excited to partner with the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History to present this outstanding event. And we are blown away by the caliber of doers and makers we have attracted to share their passion and collective wisdom with us.”

The event is co-produced by MITechNews.Com, which publishes a Weekly eNewsletter in partnership with WJR’s Internet Advisor radio show. Also on the leadership team are entrepreneurs Paul S. Funk, an Executive Consultant to Businesses and Non-Profits, and Michele Hirschfield, Opportunity Cost Strategist with Welcoming Results.Com.

“#313DLove equates to surrounding oneself with entrepreneurs who stem from the land of ‘YES’ thus making things happen, period,” Hirschfield said.

Indeed, #313DLove will be an amazing day full of great connections, inspiration and positive energy that will ripple throughout our area. 313 people will be able to embrace the vibe live on-site with us. For those who can’t, we are working on a live stream feed to a computer near you. We will record the speakers and interview some attendees and post those to our web site, http://www.lovefordetroit.com, so we can share Detroit’s message with the world.

Said Funk: “It is a privilege to be part of the 313DLove Leadership Team and get to work with so many incredible people; as speakers, sponsors and our awesome volunteer base.

“This inaugural 313DLove event promises to be the launching point for a whole new mindset of “Doers and Makers” coming together in the spirit of Love and Renewal for our Detroit-area. Come join us!”

Invitation I just sent to His Holiness, the Dalai Lama to speak at 3/13 Event in Detroit

Figure if you’re going to ask for something big, you have to go BIG and ask. While I’m at it, I thought it may be best if I can encourage some of you to ask too. Quietly. Privately. Out loud. On line. Whatever works. This request will need all the support the Universe can muster. Thank you. Here is the letter I just sent.

Greetings and warm salutations-

On March 13 of this year we will host a transformational event in Detroit. We are inviting Detroit area professionals who have done well by doing good in our area. The idea is for them to share what they love about Detroit and what they do to show it. One of the speakers will share about her non-profit, Project Forgive. Another will discuss how art can change a community. Another will share about bringing people together to remove the blight from our city. A former Navy Seal and master facilitator for Tony Robbins will share about the power of our thoughts.
All of this will be done to raise the consciousness of our area. To get people to focus on where we are now and where we are heading. In order to do so we need to acknowledge our shared past and then put it in a box and tuck it away.
To say His Holiness’s presence would be an honor is a tremendous understatement. His wisdom on living in the present, altruism and compassion are sorely needed for our area to come together. It is with this belief that I hope you will give serious consideration to my invitation:
Would it be possible for His Holiness, the Dalai Lama to join us for this event on March 13, 2014? I understand his ability to travel and appear in public is diminished. I pray for his peace and well-being. Perhaps he can join us virtually and speak to our audience of about 300 for even 5 or 10 minutes. It will be a VERY powerful day for our area and his presence, even if it’s remote, will increase the flow of positive energy. Our area can use all of the positive energy we can create and receive.
I thank you for your time and consideration.
