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...

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.

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...

         2015 State of the Union  In his 2015 State of the Union address to Congress, President Obama encouraged American employers to "hire a veteran" if they want to get the job done. Veterans bring high levels of integrity, commitment, loyalty, flexibility, skills and talents learned in high risk, high stress situations, plus the ability to navigate cultural narratives not taught in most business schools or university environments. So, why aren’t veterans getting hired?  The challenge starts with the narrative. For several years I have worked with transitioning military, from those who enlisted for four years of service to highly-decorated...

Marketing & Recruiting with a Popular Cause

Posted by on in For Businesses
‘Cause Marketing’ is the key to success for 21st century businesses. In a world in which nearly the entire population is ‘connected,’ ‘followed,’ ‘friended,’ ‘linked,’ and ‘liked’ it is critically important for competitive businesses to also from such relationships with their community and with their customers and potential clients. I am not speaking about simply being on various social networks. I am talking about implementing a social strategy that includes your employees and patrons of your products or services. Before the social networks and even more so today companies found that by associating themselves with a higher cause and purpose than...

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4   How About Some Straight Talk for a Change? Although the success rate for veteran-owned businesses is comparatively higher than non veteran firms (start-ups through mature firms up to ten years in business), the failure percentages remain daunting. The latest data for employer businesses (those with one or more employees) (the real driving engines for our economy and growth) showed that although 400,000 new businesses were created, 470,000 died nationwide – a “deficit” of 70,000 no longer there (US Census Bureau) http://thechairmansblog.gallup.com/2014/02/the-us-economy-kidding-ourselves.html (2014). Scrutiny of the 2008-2013 data shows that more than half of all...

A major and significant downsizing of our US military is happening right now. 1.3 million US armed forces members are being pushed out before the date that their enlistment papers and contracts state. This reduction, coupled with the hundreds of thousands of recent US veterans that have transitioned back into the civilian world and that still have not found sustainable employment, threatens to make the unemployment crisis among US veterans a catastrophe. Their finding suitable employment just became much harder than it already is! Fortunately, there are solutions. The National Institute of Training and Education has several training programs for US veterans in...

Video about our Nation's Revered Flag

We are all so blessed to live in America: To be citizens of a country that has been the light of the world since its inception in 1776.

Lying: The Way of the World

Posted by on in News
We all know this to be true. Seemingly, every one lies nowadays. It is the way of the world. Certainly we know that politicians lie constantly. They make promises that they know they will never fulfill. Mechanics take advantage of our ignorance and charge for repairs that are completely unnecessary. Doctors insist that we have surgeries that we don’t need. Dentists too. Bankers and mortgage brokers, contractors, car salespersons, etc. The list is endless. Who believes that the ads we read and see are telling us the real truth? “Buyer beware!” This is an adage that we must live by.Why...

 The Weekend Hunger Backpack Program was designed to supplement meals for children, who depend on their school for breakfast and lunch, during the school week. The program identifies chronically hungry children who are in need of nutritional assistance over the weekend. Volunteers fill the backpacks during the week to be taken home on Friday with enough food for the child and their siblings for the weekend. In Alachua County, one in four children don’t have enough food to eat each day. Lack of access to a nutritious and adequate food supply has implications not only for the development of physical...

Saving US Military Marriages and Families

Posted by on in For Families
I am writing this not just to describe our critical program for US veterans, but also to inspire you to action. This is an effort that all Americans should support. Let’s see if I can convince you. In 2006, after we had begun HirePatriots.com to lift the spirits of our local US Marines and sailors in San Diego, we repeatedly met military couples that were going through divorce and the break-up of their families. The stress of repeated deployments to combat and just the daily hardships of military service was wearing down our exemplary US patriots that volunteered to use their...
