In 2018, we came up with a new approach to all our efforts that would enable more instructive presentations, in addition to the ones we have been producing. With our previous approach, our goal was to promote "Enlightening Education" through promoting classes catered to a specific group. Now, our upgraded goal is to promote 1) Enlightening Education and 2) Informative Opportunities. We intend to include all kinds of businesses that are looking to promote their excellent services. All too often, it seems that people are left without help because they just don't know where to look for their needs. And sadly, they persist in their lack of knowledge of what's out there. Our grand objective is to fill that hole and create the bridge to the best opportunities and services out there.
In July of 2017, we gave it another whirl. This time we invited Joel Buxton of Idaho Falls, a family counselor, and Jeni Griffin of Idaho Falls, the executive director of SPAN Idaho, or Suicide Prevention Awareness Network. They each presented on their particular subjects and each were excellent.
It is now time for us to branch out and gain insight on all of the worthy causes or great opportunities out there that people would grab onto if they just heard the "pitch".
On June 29th, 2016, we gave it another go at offering some presentations for funeral directors in Idaho. This time, we invited Dr. John Liljenquist of Idaho Falls to also present on Understanding Anxiety and Depression. His thoughts were inspiring! Our greatest objective with "Just a Pitch" is to promote the best education, information, and opportunities to those who need them most. And to branch out to every opportunity possible, from trip advising to counseling, the best masseuses to real estate opportunities, etc. We will do all we can to make it work.
Back in 2015, my brother and I created our first class presentations for funeral directors. This particular class focused on compassion, the number one characteristic of funeral directors. We taught two of this presentation within a week.
Here is my journal entry from the time we were doing it:
Thoughts and Feelings:
As I have my first class tomorrow, I feel nervousness and anticipation. We have created quite a fun plan which can always be improved. I pray that the Lord will help as I strive to influence the directors to have more love and compassion in their work.
It hits me that this creation is all an act of self-driven faith (with the help of Austin). What a success this has been so far. He's great with people and positive. "
