Help! Help! Help! I screamed! The roar of the trucks diesel engine drowned out my cries. I had fallen asleep in a Dumpster and awakened just as it was being emptied into the back of a garbage truck. Totally disoriented, I landed face first in the filthy muck. I spit something vile out my mouth. Before I could gather my wits, I was being propelled forward towards the deadly whining of the trucks compactor. I was about to be crushed to death in back of a stinking garbage truck! Earlier that day, I had donated blood plasma. The donation was my...

A Great Business for Veterans to Own

Posted by on in Biz Ops
I have been helping US veterans find employment and to start businesses for 45 years. Many that I help are service disabled. Some have prosthetics, some have other kinds of injuries; and some have PTSD and find it difficult to work a typical 40-hour a week. I have focused largely on assisting these men and women by creating alternative employment options. One of my options is US Military Maintenance. It is a business for US veterans to own and then to hire other US veterans and their spouses. It is a very lucrative business to have, with an extremely low start-up...

I get inside many companies. Time and time again I see there is a “go to” person in every company. I migrate towards these people and more times than not I find a vet.  Not enough companies have learned the value of a vet. I asked my son-in-law if he put a dollar amount on his military training and his reserve training he said it would be about half a million dollars. What company would turn down a person with such intense training, work ethic and if he is not 15 minutes early to work he’s late. Just like you.  If...

My Dad: A WW II US Veteran

Posted by on in Interesting
 My Dad: A True Artist When Laguna Beach was truly an “artists’ town.” When young and old creatives flocked there instinctually like birds to Capistrano, it was the North Beach of San Francisco, the Greenwich of New York and the North Bank of Paris. My father quit his senior executive job at Northrup Grumman in 1963 and moved our family to this quaint, pubescent town, abandoning his profession as a conceptual artist for the military establishment and devoting himself to producing true art. He had been a star in California high school track in the early 1940s. His nickname was “Breeze”...

2016 time to budget? Free Book

Posted by on in News
It's the time of year everyone considers living on a budget....again. Oh I have been there, it took me several test runs, okay I’ll admit it years to get it right. Eventually I asked for the help of a budget coach and that made all the difference. Since then I have been a volunteer budget coach myself helping others like I was helped. As unemployment rates rose I realized not everyone could have a personal budget coach so I wrote a book with real life stories and I kept it short, who wants a 3" thick book on budgeting anyway!  Even though...

CBS - There was something extra special about one of the pups who graduated from a New York State guide dog school on Saturday. That’s not to say all of the four-legged graduates at Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a nonprofit that provides guide dogs to people with vision loss and children with autism, aren’t remarkable. But one of them, an energetic two-year-old German Shepherd named Klinger, is about to make history. As far as Guiding Eyes is aware, Klinger is the country’s first guide dog specifically trained to run with a blind athlete. After six months of training—including 200 miles of running practice—Klinger is now ready to...

When Faith was 4, her brother Griffin became fixed on the television news reports from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. His heart went out to the children and he began asking his parents to adopt from Haiti so there would be “one less without a house or a family.” Greg and Robin explained that they couldn’t just go to Haiti and bring home a child, but Griffin’s heart would not be deterred. For his sake, Robin began looking for a way they could help a child in Haiti. That’s when she found Operation Christmas Child. Griffin’s heart was comforted as he...

The Virgin Birth of Jesus

Posted by on in For Families
The Birth of Jesus through Joseph's Eyes by R.C. SproulWhen we celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmastime, our attention is most often given to Luke’s account, because it gives us so much information. It tells us of the annunciation of the angel Gabriel to the peasant girl Mary. It includes the story of the shepherds as well as the infancy hymns that are sung by Zacharias and by others during that time. Matthew’s version is much briefer. We notice at the outset that Matthew gives his account from the viewpoint of Joseph, whereas Luke tells his account from...

Maybe you’ve been thinking about going out on your own and starting a business. It’s a pretty daunting thought, yet people with military experience tend to make excellent entrepreneurs.  In fact, a study from the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy reported that veterans are about 45 percent more likely to become entrepreneurs than people with no active-duty military experience.  The most recent U.S. Census data showed veterans owned about 2.4 million businesses that generated $1.2 trillion in receipts and employed 5.8 million people, proving that veterans make their mark on America long after their military service has ended.  Military...

By Robert Rosebrock Veterans Today - Just when you thought the VA couldn’t swim any deeper into the cesspool of crime, corruption and retaliation, they plunged to even lower depths when they issued a falsified arrest citation to “Mr. Patriot” (Ted Hayes) for hanging two American Flags on the front fence outside the VA’s National Veterans Home and then forcefully removed and confiscated them as “evidence.”  Ted Hayes is a legendary civil, human and homeless rights activist as well as a public icon for promoting American Patriotism in honoring our American Flag and the men and women who defend it, particularly those who...
