Good evening gents, I have finally found something I feel that is my passion and calling. Health. I have joined a company that truly cares about their customers and partners! This company is truly a blessing to me and my family! If you are interested in health, would like to shed a couple pounds, or even gain some lean muscle, contact me and I will put you in the right direction! Ciao!

I've held jobs, lost and found jobs (all three sometimes easily and sometimes not so), started businesses (ditto), and really do want to start another one. But how to convince my wife that it's less risky -- or at least no more risky -- than a "real" job these days?

One thing I know I need both at home and whatever I'm doing for work: how to pitch -- there's a book Good in a Room and maybe even her coaching or at least webinars: www.goodinaroom.com

Hello, my name is Starkovich from Texas.  I'm launching a lifestyle consulting and management business.  I am on Facebook right now, but will be doing a website in the next months.  I am going to be focusing on helping people who want to move from one social class to another by teaching them the rules and strategizing their lives to be who they want to be.  I will also help them network with others to have relationships to replace the ones they may be required to leave behind in their pursuits.

Uptown Seb,  what is the name of your company?  Do you have a website?

Comment by Ewin on February 9, 2012 at 9:53pm

Thomas, I use the normal social networks (Facebook, twitter) I have recently added Pinterest which is really unique and a lot fun.  I wrote an article about it and will post it when it is published.

Hi Gentlemen.  I own Ewin's Dry Goods.  I love the process of growing an idea.  Looking forward to many good discussions.

Does anyone in this group have experience and/or knowledge about starting and operating a freight brokerage business?  Fair warning--I'm looking for brains to pick.

The Moving Crew - is my small business. I seem to work more hours than all of the 'employees' that I know, and always have, but I love what I do and I love running this business. My partners, Damon and Mike, are great guys and we do some excellent moves. I'd love any comments, critiques, pointers for the website.

I grew up in a family business and being an entrepreneur comes naturally to me. Working on an idea for a local beer pub in my town, too. Life is good...

I've been using it to promote my podcasts and I'm having A LOT of success.

I actually purchased http://jamesdibben.com and it points to my LinkedIn page.

You can even argue that iTunes is a social media platform with where they are heading and I get a lot of podcast traffic from there.

How can I improve my leadership abilities?

Good evening gentlemenRecently I have been promoted to a Corporal in the US Marine Corps reserve. I was happy being promoted especially cause it was a meritorious promotion and around my two year mark. I only had one problem about this, I feel I lack leading abilities. While I am very good at my job and have good conduct I never really had any leadership experience. I have no idea how to be with my junior Marines how to gain their respect as a leader and their trust. Especially since some were…See More

Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More
