We live in a really screwed up world in so many ways but today one person can accomplish so much more than they ever could at any other time in human history. The internet has given us the ability to reach people all over the world — lots of people.
I wrote a blog post a few months ago that was getting over 50,000 views a day. 50,000 people! Do you know how hard it would have been for me 20 years ago to reach 50,000 people? But in 2015, you can have your voice heard.
There is a guy living in a Utah cave on ZERO money named Daniel Suelo — he has a blog. He runs it off of computers at his local library. Too bad that guy doesn’t believe in money; I could build him a much better platform to have his voice heard.
Seth Godin often talks about how today we really can change the world around us.

The internet is a powerful thing. Is there something in the world you want to change?
You can and we want to help.
