An encounter with a saint has shaped John P. Gilowski’s attitude about life.
“During a highly memorable experience, I was once invited to a special dinner for the late Pope John Paul II in New York,” Gilowski said of John Paul II, who has since been given saint status. “During a conversation at this dinner he had asked me how I was able to emigrate from Krakow (Poland), also his hometown for many years, to the United States.”
Gilowski said it wasn’t easy but that he always has been able to find creative solutions to problems.
“After our conversation, he gave me some very simple but extremely important advice, ‘Never be afraid to pursue your dreams,’” Gilowski said. “Up to this day, I’m not only following his advice, but also trying to help others do so as well. Most of us are afraid to pursue our dreams for reasons such as risk, cost, amount of work or uncertainty of the results. Also, many more are discouraged by their friends, acquaintances or co-workers due to different reasons such as unfamiliarity with the pursued goals, lack of creative thinking, fear of the failure or just simple jealousy.”
Gilowski, owner of Encore Global Network and a Carmel resident for 20 years, said fortunately some of our ancestors continued to pursue their dreams regardless of the problems they encountered. Now people are addressing global problems.
“Not only should we encourage creative people and companies with vision and drive to strive toward resolving environmental and social problems, but we have an obligation to help them as much as possible,” he said.
Gilowski said he is helping others with their dreams by offering interactive listings of unique ideas, new technologies, products and professional expertise.
“We are offering help to anyone who has an interesting idea,” Gilowski said. “The Encore Global Network has been developed in the order of promoting innovations as a key to long-term economic growth and is vital to all of us now, and eventually highly beneficial for the future generations.”
The initial help is offered free.
“We profit when people come to us and say they need additional help like marketing,” Gilowski said. “The company is trying to link providers and seekers.”
The stated mission is Encore Global Network is dedicated to forging effective collaborations and strategic partnership between creative people offering innovations, unique products, projects, opportunities, research, expertise, assistance in profit increase and/or cost reduction, and/or new efficient technologies, and companies, organizations, and agencies with vision and drive, facing today’s biggest challenges.
