More About Stefan
Years ago I was living in a van and staying at Salvation Army. I went through a lot of ups and downs in life, and ended up with them doing an article about my life on the cover of their magazine. I’ve now been partnering with them for years, first with donating cars and vans to single moms there to help them get work, and now, by Gods Grace, http://HireBlack.com, a website Rick Schwartz said could be worth $950k is actually advertising positions they have open, along with hundreds of thousands of other jobs. This stuff is more valuable than domains. Makes me so happy that giving away free domains to help people in business is one of the great blessings of my life.
My life as a “word person” is tied to my faith, and about finding opportunities for people to succeed. I owe everything I know to other people and just want to pass it on. Rick Schwartz and Jothan Frakes were two domainers very helpful to me. Perhaps it’s all about “People connecting” in my opinion.
I teach a class at a local university bringing homeless friends in, to be a college professor each Wednesday night. The combination is compassion personified. A normal day is often meeting with a company or university regarding Diversity Equity and Inclusion, and working on housing/jobs for someone on the streets. Today I went to a small deli to find one of the women we work with employed.
I’m always thinking of how a domain can make a difference. We started a church on FirstMetaChurch.com, a thriving job board on HireBlack.com, a Metaverse company teaching at Web 3 and Metaverse conferences globally on BlackMetaverse.io, and an easy to remember ministry/organization on HelpAnyway.com.
My personal journey through 8 surgeries, dependency on prescription meds, detox, and now helping others find faith and freedom, drives me to use the strength of words to uncover the power of “I won’t forget that.”
Just words to remember.
