In RAISE MONEY, you'll discover
  • HOW to embody your ideas, content, and products so others are dying to get involved...
  • HOW to know who will suck your vision dry, and focus on lifting beloveds to create lifelong, delighted investors and collaborators that will always take you Next Level...
  • WHICH unspoken fears and hidden triggers you need to instantly know for each kind of partnership to move forward
  • WHY partners will buy your proposal, but reject others... 
  • EXPERIENCE generating support that's usually available only to those with multi-generational financial stability.
  • LEARN the Science of Being On Path, forwarding projects that come fom your innate compass. We we tell you how to do this with velocity,  clearing any blocks that come up to stay On Path and On Purpose. 

The real rules have nothing to do with the ins-and-outs of venture capitalism...

Today, everyone has an instant bullshit meter and not too much time.  Before you can spill your elevator pitch, your 9 seconds of genius, their bodies are reading your energetic field -  and they can tell if you and your project are part of their Big Picture.  Even if they're not very aware, not very conscious, and seem to like you plenty.  They can tell if you've come to give or to take, and they'll know because it will either feed them or drain them.  If you aren't clear at the cell level, your project is screwed.

In RAISE MONEY, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite REAL fundraisers.  Not a single online marketer in the bunch.

You’ll be immersed in the science and truth of successful presentation - when it starts, how to prepare and what to focus on.  You'll completely understand investor behavior...when you need to back off, for how long, and precisely what to do when it's time to lean in.

In this information-packed course, you’ll also discover...

  • Why it's way easier than everyone makes it...
  • How to engineer contagious enthusiasm that will lead to the real source of your funds...
  • How consistent, persistent funding habits are formed (and destroyed)...
  • ...and how to comfortably create a movement that supports your vision

From CI's lifelong collaborators, you’ll learn:

  • How to tweak your pitch to intrigue whomever you're talking to, based on neuro-emotional economics and energy medicine
  • The paradigm shift that makes it unnecessary to consciously apply this newfound knowledge in your day-to-day conversations - you'll know it that well
  • The latest neuro-emotional research on what really motivates partnership choices
  • What actually happens inside the human brain as investors make their decisions, and how to use that in your favor
  • Clear, specific tools to create more effective brands, funding campaigns and viral content
  • How to unlock the "boy's club" amongst "those who have," and why they know they need your vision
  • When you want to use long-term cultivation and events to slow things down and build a movement
  • How much business plans play into this whole thing...and when you don't need them at all
  • What's worked and what's sucked, for real

9 Key Areas to Master, & How. 
5 Family-Oriented Funding Experts.

Our handpicked guests create results with integrity. We chose them for 4 reasons:

  • They each have ten-to-twenty five years of demonstrable expertise in their field
  • Their style and ideas apply to individuals, companies and organizations, online & off
  • They are fantastic teachers, because they are engaged, fully-present parents who organize their days around their families.  Once you hear their voices, you'll breathe a huge sigh of relief: this course is for good, tender, and kind people, with better things to do than obsess over marketing, fame or scarcity/affluence dynamics.

Our Promise?

You will intuitively understand how to RAISE MONEY for any initiative that cleanly resonates with who you are as a contribution.    You will learn how to embody your Big Picture, allowing you to gather exponential resources of all kinds, so you can share your work now, not only when the check is in the bank.  You'll be given exactly how to find your funders, what they need, and how to cultivate the ability to make your vision land with every gesture, expression and sentence you speak.  You will set out to raise funds, and walk away as a philanthropist.



With 15 years experience of hugely successful funding, consulting, donor training and investor management, David and Maya have gathered priceless, hands-on intelligence in an exclusive domain that's elusive, at best. 

They’ve tested all kinds of conventional ways to start businesses and build momentum (on-and-offline)....and have followed quite a few popular experts and teachers...

And what's so is...

The mogul-mindset takes up too much space to let in the big deals.  

They're missing the gold that comes from the basics of old-fashioned relatedness and full-on respect for community, elders, and collaborative peers. 

What Maya and David will reveal thru specific, unbelievable story after unbelievable story is going to turn you into an intuitive resource-raiser.  Exponentially more powerful than fundraising alone.

  • We believe this whole process will surprise you. In fact, we're pretty sure you'll raise your capital goals by 50%.
  • You'll discover surprising and totally unexpected partners when you realize the power in what you're really doing. (It's way bigger than you even believe)
  • Plus, you'll get the secret frameworks they use to turn one-time investors into multiple deals over the course of years and months.
