Hope

It is hard to calculate exactly, but I think it is fair to say we have lost millions of decent-paying jobs. During the Bush years alone, some 48,000 factories shut down. We went from 19 million manufacturing jobs to 12 million manufacturing jobs. Every day we are seeing those jobs disappear because corporate America would prefer to do business in China or other low-wage countries.

Many of us have been forced into becoming entrepreneurs. We lost our jobs and maybe our homes and haven’t been able to find new employment. So, now we must become self promoting entrepreneurs. And we need to learn from those that have done it. Now is the time for creating community based businesses, learning about niche markets and saving what is left of the economy. Will you join The Entrepreneur That Could?

There is plenty of bad news about the failing economy. I mention several indicators in my book. While the wake-up call is important, we need more than bad news. We need a path to pursue. The bad news reminds us that the old methods aren’t working. So, what do we do to feed our families, follow our passions, serve our communities and leave a legacy?

That is what you will find in The Entrepreneur That Could. That is the difference this book offers. I draw from the core principles that serve life cycles, build communities, and developed a land of opportunity for entrepreneurs. The present crisis is real, but it is also an opportunity to rebuild a fair and open economy.

When I talk to small business owners, I hear lots of confusion and even despair. That is usually because they are lacking the pieces of the puzzle and don’t know how to get their business back on its feet. They sense, as I do, that we are in the midst of a tremendous opportunity in this country. It is the corporate model that is screwing with our minds. It is so far from what the Founding Fathers had in mind! I believe that if we get back to those founding principles, that were entrepreneur-growth- friendly, we can get this nation back on its feet.
