BizZne$$ BuzZ is all about your business. Small business is in trouble and they have been as far back as the “rocking” that occurred in 2008. The 14.2 percent loss of many brick and mortar small businesses happened by the year 2015 (source, NFIB 2015 Report). Already being squeezed by Internet predators, like Amazon, E-Bay, etc. They are literally sucking the life out of small businesses by customer and profit “siphoning.” B2B Networking Groups and social media disappointments abound. Small business needs a “counter” to these Ecommerce tsunamis and that mechanism is the power of UNITY, RELATIONSHIP and the Law of RECIPROCITY. This is an EDGE that is a non-compete. The “perfect storm” of shut down/customer distancing, lack of capital and uncertainty are the devastating effects of COVID19 disruption. Our mission is to provide your business the boost that it needs to recapture your personal visions, rejuvenate your operations and to bring about a platform that represents your interests.

2/10/2021
Marketing expenditures for a Small Business is one of the most important and costly outgo's of capital that must be spent month in and month out. The most dangerous mistake that any business can make is to pull their horns in and NOT continue to put out their message and expand their customer reach. This is a formula for eventual disaster. Now, enter COVID19. Marketing as we knew it prior to this event has been largely anesthetized and the choices of venue's radically reduced. Virtual. The...

Eduk8tshon. I purposely misspelled the word education largely because since March 3, 2020, it has been largely absent from our society due to the current COVID19 Crisis. Human Capital. A term that I have seen and heard numerous times to express a word that has been formerly known as EMPLOYEE. Small Business in America is still the largest EMPLOYER of our total workforce and the value of this critical element of a business infrastructure seems to be largely LOST due to the political diatribe...

Converting Debt to Wealth An Exit Strategy?

1/20/2021
One of the greatest thrills of my lifetime was when I signed my first loan docs for the first home that I purchased in my young life. At times like that the emotions run high and the blood to the brain becomes impinged because we never really do read all that stack of paperwork at escrow office, do we? The first time I really paid attention to those documents was when I purchased my present home and discovered that box that says, deferred payments and the total in that box. Oh my, almost...

In any Small Business you have Hard Dollar vs Soft Dollar Costs to incur. One (Soft) is much more malleable as (Hard) is mostly fixed expenses such as Lease Payments, Insurances, Payroll etc. Merchant Processing is for the most part in the (Hard) category and can be frustrating as it deals with the LIFEBLOOD of any Small Business which is your CASH FLOW.

Debt Creating Wealth: A Formula For Current and Future Success

12/9/2020
The War of 1812 more than doubled the nation’s debt. It increased from $45.2 million to $119.2 million by September 1815. The Treasury Department issued bonds to pay a portion of the debt, but it was not until Andrew Jackson became president and determined to master the debt that this “national curse,” as he deemed it, was addressed. By selling federally owned western lands and blocking spending on infrastructure projects, Jackson paid off the national debt after six years in office. This...

It's Christmas time again. In 1946 a movie entitled Its a Wonderful Life starring James Stewart was released and has been influencing and charming audiences for many generations thereafter.

Survival Of The Fittest . . . Non-Profits

11/18/2020
Having been the CEO of a Non-Profit, Community Based Organization in the past I am well familiar with the challenges of the day to day operations and their resultant outcomes. Non-Profits have the same characteristics as any business entity. They have lease obligations, insurance, employees/payroll, marketing expenses etc. The ONLY thing that really does not enter their realm is taxation and that is a great advantage. Non Profits from every source of information I can garner are taking huge...
