📣 Micro-blog content for small business owners to run their businesses without a GLITCH.💥

BIZ Glitch is for PROACTIVE Business Owners who love accountability buddies!

The project includes 366 pieces of business-related content. Running a business is both a sprint and a marathon. There’s always new stuff to learn. And sometimes, it’s after the mistake has already been made.

The focus of this project is to motivate small business owners to learn and be reminded of all that we must manage on a daily basis. 

We saw, firsthand, how small business owners lost millions of dollars by not knowing how to prepare for a business loan request. This process can test a small business owner on how challenging it is to be organized with the various aspects of running a business. 

Join us in our free Geneva for open discussions about issues that pop up so we don’t feel alone trying to debug the glitches of small business ownership.

View the collection in its entirety on Opensea. You can sort not only by the traits of the artwork but also by what date each token represents. Each glitch token represents a calendar date.

{ EXPERIENCE }

As an SBO and entrepreneur for 20+ years, Linda Rey has worked with thousands of SBOs all over the United States. Her career spans almost 40 years in the insurance field including owning an insurance agency.
Linda Rey’s professional experience includes (in no particular order):

* Sales, marketing & branding strategies
* Insurance underwriting
* Implementing management concepts
* Personnel development

In 2017, Linda Rey sold her business and with her partner, Trevor launched Aurora Consulting, a Commercial Financing Brokerage and content creation business to help entrepreneurs expand their enterprise with unique, cost effective business financing solutions.

Trevor is a retired mortgage loan officer with over 30 years of experience in lending and who has specialized with government loans.

He’s also a professional musician and an aspiring published author. He’s currently a full time content creator with extensive financing and business consulting experience.

When the pandemic hit, their financing brokerage shut down as Lenders scrambled with the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

As entrepreneurs do, they pivoted and sought to help business owners learn the fundamentals about business financing and how to apply for the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL).

They developed a national reputation assisting business owners all over the country and helped to secure over $70 million (that could be quantified) in disaster funding for small business owners.

[ MISTAKES ]

It’s easy to NOT know everything about running a business. We fly by the seat of our pants, wing it and learn as we go. We can’t read a textbook and be ready to build a flawlessly profitable business.

It takes grit and grace to pull off the challenges that come along with running and managing an SBO on a daily basis.

[ WE DON'T KNOW ]

We don’t know that a mistake is around the corner no matter how benign or colossal that mistake may be when it happens. There are a couple facets that make this troubling.

1. We don’t know what we don’t know.
2. Some learn from mistakes and recover swiftly and some don’t recover at all

[ WHAT & WHY EXACTLY ]

This NFT project is a MISTAKE of the Day concept where we outline a daily consideration that’s vital to running a business.

After being hired by 500+ clients in the last two years, we saw grave deficiencies in the approach of how SBOs were managing various aspects of their business. This led to a need to generate content encompassing these categories.

{ ARTWORK }

This 366 Glitch Project includes an art collection with 366 non-fungible tokens (NFTs). You do not need to know anything about Web3 or NFTs to get the 366 glitches but an NFT will be reserved in your name. If you have a Web3 wallet, email Linda@AuroraConsulting.biz.

Simply, due to Linda Rey’s passion for collecting art since the mid-1990’s. Art has always provided a sense of intrigue, whimsy, peace and calm. We wanted to evoke this emotion with the collection. We want each NFT to have some beauty built into it to politely distract from the boring business banter

Art is like magic; and after working with countless business owners during our entire combined careers, we wanted to make the concept of this project as approachable and digestible as possible.

Every Biz Glitch NFT includes a hand-made image by the artist, DKleine (see below), who draws and then glitches each piece to create a series of unique works. Only a few Biz Glitch NFTs include the original signed image from which the hand-made variants are created.

The artist’s process is, at the beginning of each stage, a unique piece would be created from which a series of derivatives are made.
Derivatives would still be individually hand-made but there would be only one image from which all derivatives are created.

Oh and there will be Zombies too in honor of Halloween and the month of October.

{ ARTist }

DKleine began exploring blockchain technology in 2016. Initially blogging and then writing for marketing teams, he eventually joined the team at Cointelegraph.

Through interactions in his writing career, DKleine encountered figures who introduced him to the world of cryptoart.

He wrote about “Immutable Trash” for Cointelegraph Magazine and began his exploration of this new world as a writer turned artist.

He now creates art and hosts the NFT-focused podcast, NFP with DKleine.

{ Let's talk COMMUNITY }

Our goal is to build a network of trusted professionals to have vital Q&A sessions on a particular topic and so holders can communicate with others for inspiration, motivation, accountability, and access to information vital to the day-to-day operations of a business.

We’ll be using Geneva for the community platform. We look forward to sharing that with you when it’s developed. We want to build a network of like-minded business owners looking to grow and excel in their field. Learning from others with common interests and goals is the most satisfying way we know of to propel excellence.

{ CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION }

Once 100% minted out, 6.5% of the proceeds will be donated to Dress for Success. This organization focuses on empowering women all over the globe. Their mission includes: Empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

{ FAQ's }

We spoke to countless business owners during the pandemic. We saw them struggle to get approved for a disaster loan. The business loan process, in general, is arduous and fraught with hurdles and hiccups.

Many were delayed in getting approved, or worse, didn’t get approved at all because they simply didn’t have basic systems and processes established in their business to meet the lending requirements.

This demonstrated that there are likely many more small business owners who may not be aware of certain things that are critical to business operations until it’s too late.

Yes, you can download a sample of 7 glitches by filling out this form.

If you don’t own a business, you don’t need this project.

If you plan to start a business, no matter, what size the business is to be when you start, this will be helpful.

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. It’s a cryptographic asset on a blockchain that has varying properties that differentiate them from one another.

Contrary to the dollar, a dollar has the same value no matter if you have a $1 dollar bill or 4 quarters.

NFTs are digital assets with ownership in content such as images, videos, music, events, etc.

You don’t need a crypto wallet to receive the 366 glitches via email. If you do have a web3 wallet, we can arrange to transfer the NFT to your wallet.

Email us at Linda@AuroraConsulting.biz and we’ll set up a call in the meantime.

$97 for all 366 glitches.
or .06 ETH if you have a crypto wallet.

Glitches are emailed to you. You can choose either one glitch per day or 7 glitches sent in one weekly digest email. When you click on the banner “Grab a Glitch,” you’ll choose daily or weekly. Once you complete the form and payment, you’ll start receiving the glitches. If you want to purchase with crypto, email me before you do anything and we can make that happen.

We’re currently using the Geneva App for discussions about all the topics we cover over 366 days. It’s in its infancy stage but you’re welcome to pop in and be an “OG” you deserve to be!

Thank You
