Special Business Secrets

It is only a theory, but not without reason. Too many new business plans start with a large loan when it’s not necessary. Markets and changing times have too many factors for anyone to be right all the time. Real estate flipping is a bit more predictable and depends more or less on how many people are in your address book. But new ventures.. What actually makes a concept successful?

Does the logo need to change? Will your “need” expire in the second year of a three year plan? Does the product need excessive engineering or is it best to shoot from the hip? Can YOU shoot from the hip at this target market or do you need to hire an expert? Which expert should you hire or how should you hone your own accuracy? How do you know who to hire for this industry?

The questions for new ventures can only be answered with testing.  · · · →

Perseverance and Punishment

Perseverance and Punishment

Needless to say, I’m a concerned for our country. It’s not from the economy—the state of which dates back to the Clinton years when the laws were set that affected the housing crisis. No, it’s not which political party is in charge—sometimes I can’t tell the difference, but that’s true of nearly any country’s politics. And, no, it’s not Obamacare—though I still think the country asked for it in November 2008. I finished grieving over the nationalization of Romneycare by the time Obama took the oath of office.

No, I’m concerned about a potential stand-off between honest police and honest citizens.. and it’s all from a misunderstanding.

I was raised as a Michigan Militia Redneck. Yep, a bitter nut who “clung to guns and religion”. That was me. It was how dad raised me. Don’t get me wrong, all my life, dad respected police officers and soldiers and he even taught me to respect every City and State Trooper, even if a traffic cop was in the wrong.   · · · →

War Worry Not

War has been brewing for quite some time. More recently news has picked up on it. But I’m not worried because I already saw it coming. Many thought I was worrying. Quite the opposite. Because I have been alert, worry never crossed my mind. Don’t confuse worry with sobriety. Drunkards might have trouble with this.  · · · →

Credibility Check

The Point

OPINION—Much of what we know from long history is anecdotal at best, coming from tradition. But could that actually be more credible than the academic obsession we have today?

General Eisenhower insisted that as many photographs as possible be taken of the Jewish Holocaust aftermath because, some day, so he claimed, someone would try to deny that any of it ever happened. Now, not even a century later, accredited academians and even Middle-East governments are making the denial Eisenhower predicted. What’s the point in certification if it doesn’t stop such obtuse lies? Perhaps, certifying the lies was Satan’s intention all along.

Tradition tells us that there were two zodiacs. Yes, TWO! The first was held by Noah (the guy with the ark) and his ancestors. Supposedly, Noah believed that the stars told a story of a loving Creator God who would redeem humanity through a suffering messiah borne of a virgin.  · · · →
