This has been a very busy week. I've been juggling different aspects of my marketing business --- using a diverse set of skills --- developing a few websites, coming up with marketing strategies, doing SEO, designing a book with lots of illustrations, creating posters and networking with 3 Chambers, Rotary. and a few nonprofits.

My business partner and I started a Property Management company last year. One of the properties that we manage has been trying to get internet connection for months but in my area there are only 2 internet providers (Spectrum and Frontier) and neither want to spend the money to connect the main cables. The residents are on a warpath and I see murder in their eyes. My people deserve the best so I'm honing my investigative and diplomatic skills with the internet companies.

I also met with a few people and discussed a potential new business involving plastic. (Shhhh! This is still under wraps.) We've made an initial game plan ... redesign of an existing product, and sourcing the raw material and production. It's a long shot and even if nothing comes out of this exercise at least I developed a friendship with a fellow dreamer.

Such is the life of a Trep (entrepreneur). More than the money, we enjoy the process of making things work. We want to create jobs and help families grow. We are dreamers --- no, visionaries! Sure it's risky. But that's what makes it exciting. It's stressful but it can be so rewarding. Why don't you try it? Pray about it, start small, team up with those with complementary skills and just do it.

A few of you are in a career transition and are doing the job search rounds but I want to encourage you of another option. You can start your own business. There's no excuse being idle and waiting for manna to come down from heaven.

Many of you who read this are my fellow Treps. You know exactly what I am talking about. Keep it up boys and girls! Remember Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg ... like them, we have the power to change the world. To us, failure is just another lesson to be learned.

The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and actualizer. He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen. -- Robert L. Schwartz

Silly Brits plan a carjack. Short and funny.

Interesting history behind this musical masterpiece. I was not aware of the profound symbolism.

Property Management is a challenging occupation . Caught between Tenants and Owners can be precarious. Frontier offers Hot Spots and is used by RV Owners and Works almost every where.
