Our intention for this movie is to make people hit the pause button on their life and truly think about what they want to accomplish.

A Billion Entrepreneurs (ABE) - The Movie has raised over $120,000 in the past four weeks for its Kickstarter campaign. The goal is to reach $200,000. The funding is needed to complete the movie , which will be used as a resource for an educational program that promotes entrepreneurship, purpose and responsibility. The movie's Director, Jimmy Newson, originally turned to Kickstarter with the hope of building awareness around the importance of finding one's purpose in life and how that impacts the global community.

"Imagine what this world would be like having one billion people on-purpose and living their lives to their full potential. Wow, what an amazing place we would live in," states Newson.

“We sometimes get so caught up in our day to day activities, that we forget what our purpose and passion is in life. Our intention for this movie is to make people hit the pause button on their life and truly think about what they want to accomplish,” remarks Michele Andriola, Executive Director of A Billion Entrepreneurs Foundation.

The movie is being created to redefine entrepreneurship to mean "taking responsibility for outcomes", with the intentions to inspire those to find their purpose in life.

"When you find your purpose in life, everything becomes clear to you. Even though you may come across obstacles in your way, and you will, you are still able to continue because you are on-purpose," says Rick Sapio, Founder of A Billion Entrepreneurs Foundation.

A Billion Entrepreneurs has over one week left to achieve the Kickstarter campaign goal. As with Kickstarter, campaigns are set up as all or nothing goals. If a funding goal is not achieved, then Newson and his film will not receive any funds.

The ABE Kickstarter campaign runs through October 16th, 2014. To find out more about A Billion Entrepreneurs and to make a pledge, go to http://www.ABEKickstarter.org
