Helping Small Businesses

EforEthical

A major part of building a successful small business can be considered an art.  A valuable part of that art is applying personal character strengths and virtues to create and build that business brand.  Success can depend on many things, but I believe the make or break point of almost all start-up businesses rests on the application of basic virtues: such as manners, truth in advertising, true help, keeping one’s word, reliability and so forth.  The Best of Me from a to z is a list of virtues for life and business that when correctly applied, can elevate that art.  It is beautifully illustrated for children and adults.  This book was winner of the 2018 TCK Readers Choice Awards and is applicable to our everyday walk through life and business.

Grandma Quilts

Grandma's Quilt Ad

Winter is here….and our grandma quilts are out of the cedar chest and about the house. They are full of magical memories of love and warmth, kisses, sweet apple pies, and stories shared beside the fireplace as the icicles drip off the eaves of time.

Halloween Tricks, No Treats

Halloween Tricks

Natural selection came in the night and trimmed our forests.   The power went with the trees that fell and the limbs that broke from the burdens of wet snow.  Not even the snowplows were ready for this one.  Next springs lilacs are going to look like a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.

Happy Halloween!

dancing in the wind,

soft white cotton

It’s gossamer wings

in whimsical flight,

it’s caterpillar dreams

in broad daylight.

Caterpillar Dreams

I emerged from a cocoon and flew away.  But, I have returned today with all of my legs moving.  It is raining and I was dreaming I should stop by to say hi.  Hi, there.  May your wings take you beyond your dreams.

Books Make Booms Creates Small Business Marketing Magic For Kenaf

We are currently partnering to have our custom book Kenaf, Seeding The World translated into French.  This project materialized when the English version of our book made its way to Togo, Africa, via Elizabeth Simonetti, a Kenaf, Seeding The World book buyer.  She had seen the book described and listed on KenafPartnersUSA.com and then ordered a copy from Amazon.  In Togo, she presented the book to an interested non-profit that is now helping Elizabeth spearhead the translation.   Once translated, the book will be distributed to Togo farmers in order to introduce kenaf as a rotational cash crop. 

Togo, Africa, is primarily an agricultural country located in Western Africa. The link below gives some good basic information regards this small nation.  https://www.britannica.com/place/Togo 

 

Understanding the value and uses of the plant kenaf within Togo’s agricultural population and economy should be of great value in raising the quality of life for its 8 million residents in the future.  By utilizing all the various parts of the plant for domestic and commercial purposes, kenaf will go a long way toward supplying food, clothing, and housing for both animal and human betterment in Togo and beyond.
