Letter from the Publisher - Why
One of the recurring questions I'm asked is, "How did you get involved in
publishing, particularly on the Internet?" Well, there's a long story behind this, but to save
your sanity, I'll give you the short version.
I've always loved to write. My particular style is to simply write the way I
speak. Although, some grammar critics seem to enjoy tearing apart my style, I feel it's more
important to get a message across, rather than worry about what the critics say. I suggest you
do the same. The truth is, if you can speak, you can write. Most people that read are looking
for either, enjoyment or a solution to a problem they would like to solve, or at least, gain a
As an entrepreneur, I have enjoyed numerous successful careers in diversified
industries including Automotive Engineering, Marine/Boating, Health & Fitness,
Environmental, Spirituality,Residential Building and Self Improvement.
One major component all of these areas have in common is they require a significant amount of
writing. They also require a broad range of knowledge, but more importantly, a strategic
methodology to get points across to diverse audiences. I learned about strategy while serving in
the U.S. Marine Corps, and to this day I still implement a lot of what I learned there into
every business venture. Although the industries I was involved in changed, the basic strategic
format for each is the same.
Over the years, I've learned, the core of the economy in this country is only as
strong as its people and the small businesses they support. The larger corporations have done
more to hurt this valuable mix than they realize. We are learning more everyday about how
corrupt and mismanaged many of the huge corporations are. Our economy has been on a downward
slide for quite some time, and we are now seeing the results of what Corporate America has
I believe the solution is to reinstate the core values of what mainstream
America knows is a winning combination. There is nothing stronger than people working hand and
hand to support one other and the small businesses that gives them not only employment, but an
opportunity to share their knowledge for the benefit of all. When the people's importance is put
before the greed of huge corporate profit and executive bonuses, we feel a greater desire to
share with one another. Whenever there is a crisis, people come together to assist one another
in a way only an open heart can achieve. If you take the time to research small businesses, you
will find most operate based upon strong personal values. Certainly profit is important, but
only to fulfill the needs of the people working in the business, and to guarantee they will have
a place to make a decent living in the future. I've found that most small businesses also share
an open heart philosophy.
I feel by establishing a publishing company, which is focused on bringing people
and small businesses together, with the same philosophy of helping one another, I am doing my
small share in giving back what I have enjoyed over the years. If we can all work together and
assist one another in any way possible, it will help to turn the economy around and return the
trust we once had in one another.
Whether you are operating a small business, working for a small business or
retired, you all have something to share. Your experiences in life and the knowledge you have
achieved is of great value to others. By offering you a place on the Internet to connect with
others World Wide, I hope to bring your expertise and opinions to light. Whether you simply want
to share a story of interest or market a product (or yourself) the tools are now available to
you in one simple location.
Please feel free to write about any topic of your choice. I guarantee your
opinions and expertise will be rewarding for many others interested in your topic. Just
remember, if you can talk, you can write, so start today. You will be surprised at how many new
friends you make and the ripple effect you have on humanity.
So until the next time, be well and live your life consciously in awareness.
