Grow Submitted to Lift.do

Below is the application I submitted to Lift.do.

The text can be found below it.

Application for the Lift.do 4 Week Trial Program

Summary:

At 29, I find myself at a critical juncture. I am either going to commit to wholly growing my company,  or wholly growing myself within a company. I hope to achieve effectively making this decision, and then successfully creating the right environment to realize what I choose to pursue.

I’m looking to join a highly effective team, whose product or service is going to change the world.

Story: 

Thank you. My name is Rolando Brown.

After years of helping other people to accomplish their goals, it can be quite a moment when you find someone willing to help you with your own.

Whatever Lift ends up becoming, I appreciate you all for your intentions.

Intention is vital in the practice of realizing human transformation and potential. It’s a remarkable, and generous thing to set the intention of helping others achieve anything. In my own effort to help others, it has sometimes been difficult to highlight ways I could have equally used the help. With the goal of practicing generosity without expectation, I found myself very rarely asking for anything. So this feels like a significant moment.

I hope to achieve identifying, applying for, interviewing and being offered to accept a job, at a technology & community driven company.  I hope to focus on strategy, growth opportunities, customer service & community development.

In particular, I aspire to be a thriving members of a technology team that is driven by  human transformation, and responsible for delivering and maintaining a leading consumer product. I would love to be able to work from NY for three weeks a month, travel to the Bay Area, CA for 3 to 5 days a month, as well as visit other critical markets in the United States and/or abroad.

Furthermore, this company would valued my recent entrepreneurial experiences as an independent consultant, record label owner, community organizer, and writer.

It would be awesome if this company was clear, from a human resources perspective, that I was valuable investment. And that I could identify, strategize, inspire and help shape breakthrough ideas and processes.

I am a Father, a Poet, a technology and communications consultant, and a founding member of a collective called MVMT (www.mvmt.com).

I’ve organized over two dozen events, and have a rich social network across the country.

I presently train people how to transform their relationships with technology and technology platforms such that they develop a practice of experiencing technology as an expression of their humanity. I’m working on several projects for ZeroDivide.org.

I helped to publish two impact reports on innovative job creation during my work with Inner City Advisors.

I am asked to speak to young leaders often about my story and work.

I have several people who I work with weekly, acting as their leadership and strategic coach. I listen, and make critical connections on their behalf.

I have invested several years of my life into both the private and the public sectors, paid and unpaid.

I have made music and poetry, and still do.

At 29, I find myself at a critical juncture.

I am either going to commit to

wholly growing my company,

or wholly growing myself within a company.

I hope to achieve effectively making this decision, and then successfully creating the right environment to realize what I choose to pursue.

I’m looking to join a highly effective team, whose product or service is going to change the world.

If Lift.do can help me achieve this, I will be eternally grateful, and mutually generous.
