“The Sun himself is weak when he first rises, and gathers strength and courage as the day gets on.”
– Charles Dickens
People are often amazed when I tell them that when I started Doobert, I had no idea how to do a website let alone how to build a comprehensive software platform for animal rescue relay transport.
It may sound unbelievable but it’s absolutely true; everything I’ve learned about building and running a website I learned AFTER I started Doobert almost 4 years ago. Even to this day I continually learn what is possible, and I push the limits with my developers to try and continue to push the boundaries of animal rescue technology. I believe in the premise that technology can enable our community to act as one and solve the problems we face. That belief continues to inspire me to push harder.
So if you are struggling to get your animal rescue group off the ground and self-sustaining, or cannot quite get the community where you live to rally around your community cat program, ask yourself some simple questions: Is there a chance? Do I have a shot? Is there something…ANYTHING I can do?
Look for the smallest way to say YES and you will start to build the momentum that will support you. Remember that we gather strength as we go and that you can’t do it all at once, even if you want to. Learn from your experiences and do better each time you try.
