Week #1 - The Everest Challenge - Kick-off

The Everest Challenge is in other words the pursuit of happiness. It is a show of determination of a guy who decided to take on the challenge of climbing the highest mountain on Earth. This challenge is based on the knowledge that willingness and desire can overcome many other deficiencies. I know the challenge is going to be a difficult one but I believe that courage is the acceptance that you may not win the challenge but still give it your best in trying to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

How can you help?
The physical challenge is certainly a huge one to master. However there are other challenges that are already setting the bar high at the stage of planning. Each expedition has a cost which is anywhere from 10,000AUD to about 80,000AUD. The total cost of reaching the end of the roadmap is estimated to be about 180,000AUD over a period of 4 years.

To help me progress in this challenge you can:

• Publish the link of this blog on your Facebook or Twitter account, so that you can help me generate interest and attract sponsorship;

• Send me the contacts of people who may be interested in sponsoring the Challenge (e.g. Marketing departments of large firms, Newspaper columnists, TV show producers);

• Click on the ads at the bottom and on the side of this page (each click will generate 0.2$);

• Help me by directly donating by clicking here:

What’s next?

A series of initiatives will be launched to promote the Everest Challenge. A series of weekly updates on the preparation will be provided on this blog, with true inside on the challenges and the struggles moving towards the intermediate goals highlighted in the road map. A section on frequently asked questions will be created and updates on budget and expenditure will be available online. Any suggestions for additional initiatives are more than welcome and I am more than happy for you to join me in this experience, not necessarily climbing the mountains, but helping with any aspect of the challenge (e.g. media, marketing, accounting, etc).
