Thanks for dropping by!
My name is Nancy Gaskins. The Emerald Coast captivated my heart and soul from the first time I laid eyes on the emerald green water and sugar white sand many years ago. 

I vacationed in NWFL for years and dreamed of one day retiring and moving to the Emerald Coast. After globetrotting around the world following my Army Infantryman for 23 years, I was able to finally make that dream a reality in 2009.  

I've always considered myself an Emerald Coast Ambassador. Promoting our region, people, businesses and organizations has become second nature and a way of life.

Join me in my quest to provide affordable options for every household in NWFL to have a VOICE & VESTED INTEREST in making our region a better place to live, work and play.

We believe that actions should speak louder than words, so we hold one another accountable, keep track and record our efforts.

Bridging the Gaps: 

We have 5 Key Focus Areas That Will Help Us Bridge the Gaps Throughout Our Region:

1. Get Everyone Working On the Same Page
2. Financial Fitness & Philanthropy
3. Community Service & Regional Pride
4. Life Enrichment
5. Entrepreneurship

Did You Know?

We have 46K businesses, 6K new retirees each year, 158K Seniors over the age of 60 and 6 THOUSAND non-profits in our region, but most of us are only aware of about a handful; the ones with great marketing budgets, highly visible individuals who are in the news on a regular basis and those who have donors with big pocketbooks. Most don't fall in the category. 

The truth is we obviously thousands of individuals, non-profits and businesses throughout our region doing great things, but they need an introduction, more exposure and access to more resources, customers and volunteers.  

1: Relationships & Collaboration
Get Everyone Working On the Same Page

Everything begins first with an introduction and ample opportunities to build relationships and collaborate. 

Relationships spark our creativity, teach us things we'd never learn on our own, can minimize our mistakes, reduce our learning curve, save time and money, and makes life much more interesting. 

Our publications and life enrichment events and activities will be fun, inspirational, engaging and will include all the necessary ingredients to connect, learn more about one another and will include exciting incentives encouraging each Member to actively support one another in our endeavors. 

** Non-Profits **
The goal is to become a centralized hub for our region; creating and maintaining a database of info about each Non-Profit and host events where these non-profits can come together under one roof to work together on projects, eliminate duplication of services, identify gaps and problems, share resources, discuss and learn how to solve Volunteer management issues. 

Once we do that, we will publish and maintain a Non-Profit Directory, Volunteer Database and Community Service online billboard that we will make available for every household and business in our region. 

2: Community Service & Pride
We provide affordable options for everyday people to have a vested interest in their communities. We will encourage, recognize and reward all those individuals, families, businesses and non-profits who participate and help us make our region a better place to live, work and play.  

3: Financial Fitness & Philanthropy

We provide money management and wealth building classes and opportunities to help you earn extra cash to help make ends meet, get out of debt, increase the quality of your life and plan for your financial future. 

Transform Everyday People Into Philanthropists
Members can also opt to participate in our Community Investment Club which provides crowdfunding Grants for small business startups as well as Grants for Non-Profits. If you can afford $30, $50 or $100, you can afford to participate!

4: Life Enrichment

Subject Matter Experts will present a variety of life enrichment training topics for Members to listen and learn online: live or on demand. From short micro-learning (10-minutes) to 1 hour Seminars. 

The objective of the Life Enrichment Academy is to help each Member equip their special interests, passion and purpose; to create and live out their version of the American Dream...a life worth smiling and talking about!

5. Entrepreneurship
Owning and operating a small business is not for everyone, but everyone can give their input on what type of NEW businesses they would like to have and would be willing to support in their community.
