Andrea Visits Iceland

A few weeks ago I used the travel voucher from Linda Steven Rivelis to visit the wonderful and magical country of Iceland. While there I saw some of the most beautiful and fascinating landscapes I’ve ever seen. I also had the opportunity to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, which are truly incredible. When I asked a native Icelander if they were still amazed by the Northern Lights, even though they can usually see them on any given clear night, they responded that while they still find them beautiful they generally don’t notice them unless they are around tourists.

Every place has something incredible or unique about it. It may even be so great that people travel from all over the world to see it. This exchange reminded me that while it’s great to travel and experience new things, it’s important not to take for granted the wonderful people, places, and natural beauty that exist right here where I live.

LLIFE™ – Living Legacy Initiative for Entrepreneurs has a new website!

A product of Campaign Consultation, the concept of LLIFE ™ Living Legacy Initiative for Entrepreneurs – emerged when Steven and Linda Brown Rivelis were in Prague and coverage over Warren Buffet giving $32 billion to the Gates Foundation erupted on all news outlets.  They witnessed firsthand the international brouhaha regarding Buffet’s philosophy that “giving is every person’s responsibility”.   It occurred to them – separate from organization mission or departmental goals – a singularly focused service, dedicated to the individual entrepreneur to achieve their personal philanthropic passion, could fulfill a need.

Then seven months later, Campaign Consultation was named one of the top 100 inner city companies in the United States by Inc. Magazine.  Shortly after a Harvard symposium and award ceremony, Inc. Magazine asked Campaign Consultation to present on corporate citizenship at their Inc. 500 conference with founders and CEOs of such companies as Newman’s Own, Burt’s Bees, Honest Tea and Under Armor.  As if to confirm Linda and Steven’s earlier hunch, private business owners began asking for help to map their personal philanthropic initiatives.   Thanks to Buffet, Gates and feedback from many business leaders, Campaign Consultation founded LLIFE ™.
