Mission Possible

Orientation

Welcome New Recruits to Day 1 of your 10-week training.  In this course, you will learn to start a business that sparks change in your community and beyond. You will choose a business, identify your community allies, assemble your League of Mentors, create your business plan dossier, learn the proper protocols to starting a business, create your not-so-secret identity and become your community’s Most Wanted!  There are 10 missions that you will need to work through in order to become a full-blown agent of change in your community. Each mission starts with a mission briefing from Agent D of the NSA (No Such Agency) and will have field work or desk work. After you complete each mission, you will need to give your fellow agents a Situation Report (SITREP) before you can advance to the next mission.  Throughout your training, keep your eyes open for mission alerts where we will meet in a covert online forum to get your questions answered.  Our enemies are always around so be wary of evil sabotages you will need to solve.  As you make it through each mission you will earn special badges that show you are the best of the best.
Be sure and download your mission map, if you haven’t already. You will find the link below this video. Your mission map is your key to becoming an Agent of Change. As you work through your missions, I encourage you to hang it in somewhere you can see it and mark off each mission as you finish it.
To assist you in your training, you will also find your mission log. Each mission has a section in your log that corresponds to the desk work and assignments you will be given. I highly encourage you to work through each task. You must put in the work in order to become a successful Agent of Change in your community. The missions are  each designed to give you everything you need to start your business.
You will also find our intelligence community where you can meet other rookies agents as well as our most highly decorated agent, Agent D. Our intelligence community is the place where you will go to share your case files, mission updates and get help with your field and desk work. Agent D is our resident expert and has had extensive experience in the field. She will be a valuable ally. Make sure to utilize her expertise as well as share with your fellow agents in training.
Okay everyone, it’s time for your first mission. Head over to the intelligence community & introduce yourself. The ink is below. Also, be sure and fill out your agent dossier. And for an additional challenge and badge we want you to dress up in your best agent gear and take your photo for your ID badge.
