Hacksburg

A hackerspace or makerspace https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace
aka a non profit membership based organization which is a crazy large garage of tools to work on projects and bounce ideas off one another

As a board member I tried to make sure we had diverse and frequent classes

we attended events and pitched for members and donations

Tried:
Meetup, posted paper flyers in starbucks, kroger, panera, facebook group,
advertised on facebook event, facebook, twitter, next three days, reddit, roanoke times calendar, craigslist events, CRC newsletter, DBI newsletter, partnered with Let's Code Blacksburg, patreon, give big NRV, amazon smile, kroger community rewards, paypal donate button

We have had no turn out to most classes

We have not netted new members through anything I tried

We have not really gotten any donations of equipment or money from anything i did

I am a fucking useless failure

Racksburg

I organize the annual bazaar which raises funds for Rack Gives Back
I did the normal
posted paper flyers in starbucks, kroger, panera (paid 25 to have it designed)
advertised on facebook event, facebook, twitter, next three days, reddit, roanoke times calendar (was printed in the paper), craigslist events, CRC newsletter, DBI newsletter

physical signs up outside as well

paid twitter ad, paid facbeook ad, plus paid table fee, all out of my own pocked

No one came, this is our fourth year, 3rd in same spot

how am i such a fucking failure?

failed to raise money for our turkey dinner drive and wasted the time of the artisans who attended, and their money

tea

The business is 4? 5? years old

I had to discontinue the tea of the month as it had few members and the work didn't justify the time and effort

it doesn't break even

i rarely get orders, and probably all my own fault I am bad at advertising, no idea how

people complained too many herbals, flavored, so i stocked pure, no one purchased them

I can't do anything right
