Business owners are a breed of Americans that exemplify the American spirit. No two owners troubles or successes are the same but the spirit of their ingenuity, creativity is the same. We believe these crafty people want better for America and if we can do our small part to help them by helping their employees then we’re all in.
My favorite companies and their industry disruption:
– Aryaka Networks, your Verizon and Comcast bills will go down.
– Pinterest, gone hightech is tackling machine learning and AI. I didn’t see that coming.
– GRAIL, Bio-technology with $1 Billion of Bill Gates’ money, that has to be on the list.
– CourseRA, providing education to get underemployed back in the game. Nice.
– Uptake, using sensor data to make decisions, this is coming age of internet connectivity, everything and everyone will be connected.
– Wish, direct access to product manufacturers (many in China), if Americans are the low cost consumers they’ve proven to be this will do well.

The Top Four Reasons Owners Need A Healthcare Buyer’s Advocate
Compensation, healthcare & employee benefits are often significant sources of frustration for business owners. By the end of this article, you’ll see that finding your own buyer’s advocate is not only a good idea; but, a necessity.
There is a new service called independent evaluators that focuses on helping business owners and their employees. This new service changes the purchase paradigm by offering a business owner their own buyer’s advocate.

When’s the last time you asked yourself why am I here? When you ask why am I here what is the conversation you have with yourself, how do you answer back?

Does your intellect process this question?
