The Deepest Wound of War: A Moral Conscience

Posted by on in News
Perhaps the worst wound of war is the injury to veterans’ moral consciences. They participated in the death and injury of hundreds of thousands, enemy or not. Killing is something that nearly no one desires to do. It is abhorrent to almost everyone. Veterans that participate in war carry a particularly heavy weight. They have to do things that can injure their souls. Certainly snipers must deal with this. Too often in these recent wars children with weapons have been their targets. I know of one sniper that was unable to stop the firing from three windows of a building that...

Veterans await order to attack Tent City!

Posted by on in News
The homeless camp called Tent City has been vacated after the city of Gainesville, Florida evicted its occupants. However the residents left a lot behind, including tents, clothes, bottles and miscellaneous trash that make the once beautiful wooded area look like a dump site. Interestingly, the City asked the property Owner to allow the homeless to stay on the property while a new homeless facility was being developed. The new facility is now populated, Tent City is vacated and who pays is being debated. The City feels the Property Owner should pay for the clean up, the Property Owner feels the...

It's a real tough road for ANY business to stay "alive" in this economy with the amount of competition out there today. One of the toughest things to obtain is the funding needed to open, sustain and grow. Banks have decided that they are able to send a lot of small business away preferring instead to focus on more established companies that already have loads of money and have established a relationship with the local bank. The banks have become afraid to "step out there" and help the individual who may be new in business. Many people to include veterans are...

  No. 1: Identify your audience. It may seem like a no-brainer, but many businesses fail to identify just who to talk to. Once you know “who” then you can go about “how” to reach them. No. 2: Reaching out to local media One of your audiences will invariably be the media. You can’t pitch all media outlets the same way. TV has different needs from print and radio and vice versa. But before you pitch ask yourself: • Is your product or service the first, best or brand new? • Is it award-winning or trendsetting? • Does it solve a...

Business Success = Social Engagement

Posted by on in For Businesses
What has made the social networks so incredibly popular is the intrinsic need in human nature to communicate with others, to be ‘liked,’ ‘connected,’ ‘friended,’ and even ‘followed.’ We like being a ‘member,’ to be in a ‘community,’ a ‘group,’ and to ‘join.’ Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn, the most popular online networks have opened the proverbial “Pandora’s box.” Now that we have tasted Apple’s elixir, we are like Adam and Eve who ate from the forbidden Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Our innocence is no more. There is no going back, ever! A true and undeniable paradigm...

The Big Advantages of Being a V.O.B.

Posted by on in For Businesses
It a tremendous advantage to be a US veteran owned business. It sets you apart from your competitors and lifts your business to a much higher level. Unfortunately, most V.O.B.s do not know how to incorporate these benefits into their branding, marketing and recruiting strategies. My recent book, The Patriotic Business Plan: Strategies for Sensational Success goes into great detail and gives a step-by-step procedure to follow. But here are the very basics: Let me use a real example. HirePatriots was just contacted by a V.O.B. that is frustrated because he has started a business consulting firm in a big city...

Our Work is our Witness

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
In his letter to Titus, the elder on the island of Crete, the apostle Paul exhorts Titus to encourage Christians to practice “good deeds;” especially, good deeds that “meet pressing needs.” (Titus 3:14) Paul asserts that the purpose of Jesus Christ in calling us is to “purify a people who are zealous to do good deeds.” (Tit 2:14) My wife, Tori, and I seek to practice this admonition every day. It is our calling to provide One Day jobs for US military, veterans and their spouses. These jobs around neighbors’ houses “meet pressing needs.” They help the veteran and the home...

Say No To Blame Storming

Posted by on in Social Media
What is Blamestorming? It is an accurate representation of organizational dysfunction, spending paid time to develop a strategy that does not correct the problem. We’ve all heard terms such as scapegoat, witch hunt, damage control, the blame game and the infamous blame by absence. They are all different terms that define a pretty common business technique. Are there any benefits that result from blame storming? The perceived benefit is causation has been determined removing the blame from the group assigning it. Therefore the benefits are individual based, focused on others maintaining their individual brands by placing sufficient distance between themselves and...

Two Poems for Valentine’s Day

Posted by on in Interesting
            1.              Incomparable               I’ve seen granite exposed on mountain peaks Glow from grey to rose to blue, Even seagulls soar and pelicans glide Over a sea with the rainbow’s hue. But of all this world’s wonders, I’ve known of nothing to compare With the beauty of your heart: So open, trusting, bare. 2. Cosmological The boundaries of infinity Are not beyond your heart. Within your smile The galaxies fly. Concerning your soul The stars sing. And it is your beauty That causes wind...
