This might be an unexpected statement coming from two capitalists but, “we’re not in it for the money.” The operative word in this proclamation being “it” with “it” being blog ad revenue. If you told us tomorrow we could make a couple hundred grand on ad revenue, we might re-think this pithy mantra. However, as it were, we just cleared the 3-figure mark on revenue from advertising.
A marketing failure? Not even close. The Freestyle Entrepreneur (TFE) has been and continues to be a fantastic learning experiment. It’s also a tremendous avenue to forge new relationships, lend credibility and voice to its owners / authors, and keep on top of the latest online endeavors.
We at TFE feel the leaders of a community or country must do everything they can to help develop and assist those within that community. The future success of the community depends upon it. Sometimes that’s something as valuable as creating a job or building a business. We’re not in a position to do that just yet.
As an alternative, TFE will donate 100% of its ad revenue for 2008 to the V Foundation for cancer research. Folks aren’t able to focus on business-let alone their lives and families-if they’re fighting cancer. This nasty character affects people of all ages, socioeconomic statuses, and geographies. It’s past time we knock cancer down for the count. The V Foundation is a 4-star rated charity on Charity Navigator and uses very little of its funds for administrative costs.
We challenge all the friends of TFE to donate to their charity of choice and we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
