Today small businesses are struggling and surrounded by economic doom and gloom, and business growth and business survival is critical to our entire nation’s economy.Today as consumers, we import more than we export and job loss from this strategy has created economic devastation that affects the entire United States. It appears that our economic strategists have forgotten to leave the world better than they find it; instead, they choose to get rich, at such an overwhelming cost to the rest of us. You cannot help wonder what has become the primary teaching in the top business schools, perhaps “Gluttony 501!”
In a devastating economy, developing renewed business success is critically dependent on cultural adaptability. Cultural adaptability is a rediscovering process critical to the survival of any business. Business complacency is an example of untrue leadership or non-leadership, any company that becomes complacent is certain to fail.
The markets will continue to evolve and the amount of market change is unknown; what is clear is that “The Markets Drive the Business” and business resiliency are vital to capture this market change. Rediscovering business success and having the right people on the bus is not enough, more important is having the right people in the right seat; this is a never-ending rediscovering process.
All the books that have been written about the rediscovering process can be summed up into one rule; “Rediscover, rediscover often, and never stop rediscovering your business”. Businesses managed by this rule create success in all directions, is fun to work at, have the very high morale and low employee turnover, and rediscovering is the spirit of success!
Self is influenced by rediscovery, the natural by-product becomes amazing possibilities, resulting in sustainable success!

Two Types of Intellectuals In Our World

Two types of intellectuals in our world, the first being a person who makes productive non government good paying jobs for others, and the second type, a person who is only concerned with preserving their own employment. The first type represents the entrepreneur, the shakers, and movers, with an indisputable focus for making jobs; and the natural by-product becomes making money. The trouble with the second type is they do not leave the world better than they find it; this has largely a negative effect on society. The second types are easy to spot, they are always the first to criticize others or brag their self-proclaimed intellect in public.

Here is the big problem; perhaps over a time span of 40 years, the first type of intellectual outnumbered the second type by 10 to 1. Today the second type of intellectual out numbers the first type by 3 to 1. What becomes significantly interesting, the second type of intellectuals reading this statement will now have a greater concern for validity of the ratios or measures outlined, then the historical reality of this written paragraph.

What does this mean, it took over 40 years of selfish intellectual learning to advance the economic chaos we are experiencing today, and it will take many years to reverse the effects. Reasoning behind this lag in reversal is the second type of intellectual is slow to build up interest, or become motivated, because in their eyes, it’s someone else’s problem.
