I'm an entrepreneur with a strong technical background, whose purpose is to facilitate personal deveolpment of passionate people by taking to reality innovative high-impact ideas.
My portfolio of projects go from Cloud Call Center and PBX unified communications based on Open Source and voice over IP, through several Twitter mashups, Design-thinking for startups, Agile practices combined with PMI, to an alternative photo magazine and my family organic coffee growing farm certified by RainForest Alliance.
I like volcano summits, half marathons, and oil painting, and I'm now looking forward to my first art exhibition and completing a Master degree in Product Design Management.
How about an "exclusive" club for elder people, with lots of benefits (like resort vacations, spa, art or golf lessons, etc.) but to enter this club people would have to apply for a membership based on joining a group couching program
As Montaigne masterly depicts on his essay "To philosophize is to prepare to die", being aware, and looking at death as a normal subject can be a great therapy to stop wandering about the future, and just "Carpe diem" which means "seize the day"
Hi Luciano. I was thinking of a new organization (profit or non-profit), like a multi-layer marketing brand, that could have local groups or people in a retirement home to form they're own local group to join the bigger organization. I see a mix of a network of both profit business network like timeshare/resort/condominium/coupons and a mix of non-profit retirement homes and caregivers joining the network and gaining benefits
Hi Kiran, yes I saw your gamification concept, but could not imagine how it would work in real life. What I tried to put together on mine is some sort of gamification as well, but focusing on the motivators that I saw elder people had on the inspiration phase. That's why I thought of a merge between a "Club" and a Multi-layer business, because I've seen people likes discounts, vacations, spa's, stuff like that.
How could we make a minimum viable version together? Did you see the concept that uses Kinect as well? (http://www.openideo.com/open/mayo-clinic/ideas/xbox-kinect-activity-bank/) that one's very good, but I don't like the fact that people have to earn points to watch TV, It seems to restrictive to me. I think the problem is on motivators.
