My Painting for Today

Capturing the Majestic by Michigan Author Richard Rensberry

My painting for today is the wolf. Cunning and poetic, they move through the forest of our hearts like the wind. They instill the beauty and fear of the wild. Poems for Teens:

Marketing Idea For Small Business Is Building Strong Brand 

With Kenaf Partners USA’s utilization of Books Make Booms custom books strategy for small business, kenaf is well on its way to becoming much more recognizable as a valuable commodity worldwide.  Kenaf, along with hemp are the most versatile fiber producing plants for a whole new generation of end product industries.  Relatively unknown just a year ago, kenaf is now accessible to the general population via our first two kenaf books: Seeds For Life and Seeding The World.  

Kenaf, Seeds For Life https://www.booksmakebooms.com/kenaf.html was a number one best seller on Amazon when it was first published in 2018.

Kenaf, Seeding The World https://www.booksmakebooms.com/kenaf.html followed the success of the first book in 2019 and was enthusiastically received and translated into French for educational purposes in order to help establish a paper industry in Togo, Africa.

Marketing Idea For Small Business Will Highlight Kenaf-Crete In Third Kenaf Book

In 2020, our Books Make Booms marketing idea for small business brings you– Kenaf, Housing The World.  It will be the third book in the kenaf series written and published by QuickTurtle Books® in partnership with Kenaf Partners USA  https://www.kenafpartnersusa.com  

HousingTheWorldCover

This book is meant to open wide the communication lines for the basic establishment and utilization of kenaf in the construction trades.    Kenaf-crete’s versatility and ease of use have many advantages over traditional construction practices.  Kenaf/hemp fibers and core are being realized for these purposes and home building from kenaf-crete and hemp-crete has the potential for exponential growth well into the future. 

With the advent of 3-D printing it seems that the sky’s the limit when it comes to the building potentials in this medium.  Used as printing stock, kenaf fiber can construct homes as well as furnish them with modern plant based plastics and fiber compounds for making just about anything.

Hemp-crete already has a foothold in the construction trades with company’s like Hempitecture https://www.hempitecture.com with their goals for eco-friendly and sustainable housing.  Hempitecture offers education workshops for a new generation of professional contractors interested in pursuing careers in the hemp-crete building industry.  Hempitecture’s workshop attendees have come from all parts of the world in order to be trained as hemp building experts.  

Books Make Booms is currently in talks with Hempitecture’s CEO Tommy Gibbons for the creation of a hemp-crete custom book.  We’d love to partner with and help Hempitecture achieve their lofted goals and purposes for housing.  Their entrepreneurial spirit is truly on the forefront of the hemp and kenaf explosion soon to come. 

Biodegradable hemp-plastic upgrades from traditional fossil fuel plastics is the realm of a company called Zeoform https://www.zeoform.com.  Zeoform is a revolutionary cellulose based material that has the potential to change everything.  Made from cellulose fibers and water – and absolutely nothing else, their patented process converts cellulose fibers into an industrial strength moulding material capable of being formed into an unlimited array of products.

Zeoform is 100% non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable and ‘locks up’ carbon into beautiful, functional forms.

Kenaf is a perfect marriage for producing the cellulose fibers needed and used in the Zeoform process.  

Supplying this rumbling volcano of an industry with kenaf and hemp fibers will be a welcome boon for many farmers of the future willing to make the leap to kenaf as a rotational cash crop as described in Kenaf, Seeding The World https://www.amazon.com/Kenaf-Seeding-World-Rotational-QuickTurtle/dp/1940736552/ref=sr_1_15?keywords=richard+rensberry&qid=1578765584&sr=8-15. 

Kenaf, Housing The World is getting much closer to reality.  Its namesake book will go to press this spring, 2020.

Community Sustainability

We believe firmly in community involvement and sustainability.

I get my truck fixed at Cliff’s Repair just a few miles down the road.  He didn’t start the business to please shareholders or to separate himself from the operations to play golf and rake in corporate profits.  Cliff started the business to help those in his community because that is what he is good at, and that is why he is a small business success.

We purchase our farm fresh meats from Pampered Beef, also just a few miles down the road.  We buy or eggs from Fairview Berries.  We support our local coffee houses and restaurants.  We buy all of our farming and home needs from our local feed store and local lumberyard.  We love our Amish General Store and Country Corners Bulk Foods.  These are all successful Michigan small businesses dreamed up and started by local residents with the goal to help.

It does not matter whether you live in a big city or a rural setting like ours, there are community members that have one intention for their business, and that intention is first and foremost, to help and serve those in their community.

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!
