Social Entrepreneur is on a Mission to Empower Others through Juggling
Nashville, TN, June 5, 2018 Dr. Jacob Weiss is on a mission to help people re-imagine the stories they tell themselves about what they can or can't do. He and his team are launching Do Good & Juggle, a new social enterprise that partners with life-changing programs for children, families, and communities, to transform their mindset from "I can't..." to "I can!" through the creative process of learning to juggle.
In celebration of World Juggling Day on June 16th, Do Good & Juggle kicks off a series of programs designed for families, non-profits, and corporate teams who seek out opportunities for personal or professional growth, while also empowering others.
Do Good & Juggle's flagship product, the Buy One Give One Juggling Ball Set, makes the joy of juggling accessible to all members of the community. For every set of juggling balls purchased, the company donates a set of juggling balls to community partners who provide life-changing programs for children & families.
For every corporate training and team building program, the team donates a motivational workshop to their non-profit partners.
"Have you have ever seen something and said to yourself, 'I can't do that...' or 'I'm too old to learn something new...' before you really even tried?" asks Dr. Jacob Weiss, Director of Do Good & Juggle. "Learning to juggle is a simple, yet incredibly powerful, cross-training that develops a growth mindset for any goal or challenge you face in life, in school, or at work."
Weiss has seen first hand the impact that juggling and laughter can have on communities. For the past 10 years, he and his team have toured the world, performing at venues from Madison Square Garden to the White House, and donating visits to local children's hospitals, non-profits, and underserved schools.
"When we visited a teen resource center, the staff wasn't sure what to expect at first, and by the end of the afternoon, they said it was the most transformed they have ever seen their students," Weiss recalled. "It is an incredible moment to see that spark of inspiration light up a person's face, and to watch families re-connecting by playing and laughing together, sometimes for the first time in many months."
If you have or know a group that would benefit from Do Good & Juggle's Buy One Give One Juggling Ball Set and Path to Success message, the team is building a network of community partners. More information and opportunities to connect are online at www.DoGoodandJuggle.com/launch.
