Just want to share a recent article I did on leading my orchestra online: "We conductors are a funny breed; once we get a taste for it, it’s hard to stop..."

I have been working a start-up recently to give me something to do after retirement and a little extra income. The business has recently been registered as a corporation with the Philippines Securities and Exchange Commission. Nowhere to go but up now! Anyone out there looking to do business in Southeast Asia should drop me a line.

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.

The Cost Disease

[I]n the past fifty years, education costs have doubled, college costs have dectupled, health insurance costs have dectupled, subway costs have at least dectupled, and housing costs have increased by about fifty percent. US health care costs about four times as much as equivalent health care in other First World countries; US subways cost about eight times as much as equivalent subways in other First World countries...[A]ll of the numbers above are inflation-adjusted....And this is especially…See More

"Yeah I understand it, just wanted to point out that semantic shifts have happened with the Jewish race as well. Also, it's probably more justified than the other shifts for the reasons you mentioned, except for maybe the word negro."
