Nothing Like Entrepreneurship!

It is so encouraging to witness, serve and support individuals who come to our country legally, abide by our laws and make a contribution for our collective benefit.

One of my SCORE clients fits that bill to a T!

Here, we have an example of a self-starting woman from Canada, the wife of a veteran and mother of a young boy. She had the guts to quit her full-time career in micro-biology to launch her own business making handmade jewelry out of her home. And, upon doing so, has gained the attention of Vogue, Seventeen, Glamour and Redbook magazines, as well as celebrity endorsements. She now has employees and is looking to continue her expansion.

Instead of my recounting her story, you can learn more by clicking here. Doing so will take you to the page of the SCORE contest “What Makes Your Business Unique.” And, while there, please consider casting a vote for her to win “up to” $25k to support the continued expansion of her business and the creation of more jobs for the citizens of our country!

Interestingly enough, the contest allows the casting of up to 10 votes per hour (from each unique device) until February 20!

So, please take a moment to review her inspiring story and cast your 10 votes (only takes a few seconds).

Also know, you too can be an entrepreneur: in business for yourself and the creator of jobs!

If you have an idea for a service or product that will solve a problem, make life easier, more enjoyable or otherwise improve the human condition, please don’t cast it off as whimsical. Develop your idea, seek counsel from someone who has gone before you and see if you can give it a go.

Seeking a mentor (at SCORE) for example, is an extremely simple (and 100% free / no-cost) process.

To do so, visit SCORE.org, click on “Find A Mentor” provide your zip-code and fill out the form to share a few details about you. From there you will promptly be connected to a local SCORE chapter as the first step to receiving the guidance you seek.

In the words of my client…

There’s nothing like the freedom and possibilities of entrepreneurship!

My Vote Has Been Cast!

What a rollercoaster ride this election season has been! And, it is NOT over yet.

A particularly interesting news article mentions the fact that polls suggest our presidential candidates are BOTH the least liked in history. So, it truly is deciding upon the lesser of two evils.

He said / She did!

The most disconcerting part of this process is the clearly biased media which seems to report more on what he (Trump) said than what she (Hillary) did.

I certainly do NOT condone, nor would I defend, what Donald “said” on the recently leaked tape of a lewd (locker room talk) audio recording.

That said, does everyone remember what slick Willy “did” the last time he was in the White House? He wasn’t recorded talking lewdly, he was actually caught acting the part!

And, do we recall what both the Clintons “did” upon leaving the White House? They stole numerous items which they were required to return. Thieves!

Or, that Hillary has received very large sums of money (a.k.a. bribes) from foreign governments while Secretary of State?

Do we want these characters BACK in the White House? Certainly not!

Is it that Hillary supporters have forgotten these (and many other) transgressions? Is it that younger supporters were simply not yet “on the grid” at the time and would not have seen these stories in the headlines many years ago?

The good news is that it seems things can only get worse for Hillary, thanks to the FBI continuing to investigate her use of a private email server as Secretary of State.

Let’s be clear. If you or I had acted so cavalier (and CRIMINALLY) we would already be locked up.

Well, I shan’t sling any more mud.

Any intelligent person who looks into the details of either candidate will clearly come up with the only conscionable result.

Fortunately for me, due to my current project / client engagement, I simply cannot cast my vote on November 8 in my home town.

As such, I went into our town office yesterday and completed my absentee ballot all inside of 5 minutes.

Done! I am committed.

For me, this will have taken all the drama out of what will undoubtedly be another week of frenzy over the shenanigans amplified by the media, regarding both of our candidates for the highest office on the planet.

In closing, please get out and vote.

And, remember, a vote for Hillary is a vote to continue the corrupt political establishment.

Go Trump!
