Webster's Dictionary:  ardently
desiring; strong wish; high desire.

You do know there is a methodology for turning a dream into a reality, yes?

It's a simple process to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

It's not magic and it produces a predictable result: accomplishment.

Start with the attitude that it can be done and you're going to discover how to do it.

Make sure the little voice in your head is offering positive suggestions in moving you forward and not doubts that hold you back.

Devise some action steps that you can achieve.

Create an empowerment team that you can count on to offer constructive input.

Come have breakfast with us any Wednesday morning and discover how we can assist in you successfully fulfilling your vision for creating your future.

"There are those who will attempt to convince you that you must learn everything there is to know about electricity before you can successfully operate a light switch. Their mantra is 'business plan.' "

"To be successful in your venture, no matter the nature of the venture, you must first believe in yourself and your vision. When you can believe in yourself, you can trust yourself. When you can
trust yourself, you can trust other people. When you can trust other people, you open up an entirely new resource mix."

On This Day In History - July 31st
Writer Daniel Defoe pelted with flowers for libel crime
A pamphlet satirizing England's High Church has gotten its author, Daniel Defoe, into trouble and leads to his arrest for seditious libel. Legend has it that his popularity provokes folks to toss blooms instead of brickbats as he's locked in a London pillory for three days.
Spanish fleet packed with treasures founders off Florida
Gold and silver coins worth 14 million pesos, miles of gold chains, precious jewels, and other priceless treasures bound for Europe are sent to the bottom of the briny sea when a hurricane hits off the Florida coast, sinking 11 of the dozen ships in the Spanish Treasure fleet.
A pulp novel vigilante armed with an ability to cloud men's minds, ' The Shadow debuts on the 'Detective Story Hour,' a popular radio program. His appeal will grow until he gets his own radio serial, which will run for 24 years, spawning one of the most well-known catchphrases in American radio history.
North America gets its hands on Game Boy
Nintendo releases the black-and-white handheld console, letting gamers play 'Super Mario Land,' 'Tetris' and other titles on the go. The Game Boy (and subsequent color version) will go on to sell more than 100 million units.



I bought a new Dodge 3500 Ram Tri-Flex Fuel Truck  It'll run on  hydrogen, gasoline, or E85.
Had to go back to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work.

The service technician explained that the radio was voice-activated.

'Nelson', the technician said to the radio.

The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?'
'Willie!' he continued, and 'On The Road Again' came from the speakers.
Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant 'Georgia On My Mind'  replaced Willie Nelson.
I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say,  'Beethoven', I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said,
'Beatles', I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Well, yesterday, a woman ran a red light and nearly smashed into my  new truck, but luckily I swerved in time to avoid her.  I yelled at  her, 'Crazy Bitch!'
The radio replied, "HILLARY or PELOSI ?"
I love this truck..
I can't believe my grandparents voted Democratic again this year in Ft. Lauderdale. They NEVER would have done that when they were alive!

Since 1983!
  A not-for-profit cooperative association of independent businesses, founded from an economic development research project on the
importance of small business development conducted by the
 Houston Chamber of Commerce in the late 1970's.

With our first Co-Op meeting held March 14, 1983, to date we've worked with 51,584
 people, generating 44,270 tips, leads, referrals and items of new business, generating revenues exceeding one billion dollars, founded the Entrepreneurial Development Center - Houston's first and Texas' oldest small business incubator and co-working space, First Houston Small Business Seed Capital Fund - literally the first small business seed capital fund in Houston, the Womens Business Center - first business incubator for women business owners in the country with residency space and the Virtual Business Center - the first remote business incubator in the world - all totally without public funding, grants, gifts, donations or contributions. 

Co-Op companies have won virtually every award for business growth in Houston, some nationally and some even internationally.
Our Entrepreneurial Research Division conclusively demonstrated "entrepreneurship" could be taught in a classroom environment, resulting in colleges and universities, globally,
commencing entrepreneurial courses.
