+Joel Emmet Doyle that actually makes a lot of sense.I guess the question here then is that whether or not someone took advantage of someone's inherent weakness.

One thing's for sure, this case is batshit crazy, haha. And that woman should be a professional make-up artist. Not to demean her looks, but we can all agree that she's not exactly the attractive type. Imagine what she can do to an average looking woman, or an already beautiful bride.

Story

Small Business Community Organizer
Introduction
I'm a friendly and outgoing guy, currently single, living near the beach area of San Diego.    I like meeting smart and creative people and want as much positive energy in my life as I can possibly get.  

There probably won't be much rhyme or reason to the posts I make here.  Sometimes I write about things going on in my life, other times I post business or political material, and sometimes I like things that are spiritual or related to self  improvement and personal growth - and I almost always like things that are funny or off beat.

I grew up in the American Midwest - Michigan, so I have the common attribute of being a little slow to make friends but then doing my best to hang onto them as long as I can.  I am an open book, but it still takes a while to get to know me  Once you have my trust though I will have your back.  I am fiercely loyal to my friends. 

My nationality is Irish so I like a good stiff drink now and again, and have a penchant for dive bars.   At the same time, I am also trying to get more health and fitness oriented and am working on my own personal growth.  I don't think we should ever stop growing.

Politically, I am a progressive libertarian - figure that one out.  I like yoga but also martial arts.  I am shy but outgoing - open minded but skeptical - tough but sensitive.  I am a patriotic American who considers himself to be a world citizen,  I am nonbeliever on a spiritual path.   Yes, I am a contradiction. 

Business Interests

I have a several different business interests, ventures and practice areas.  Since I am self-employed, I have used the "employment" section of this profile to describe my two major practice areas: Project Acceleration Services and Content Creation Services, as well as two of my ventures: World Startups and the California Trade Network.  These are active and current so contact me if any interest you.or if you see a way we might work together.   My other business interests include:
  • Entrepreneurial Collaboration
  • Small Business Development
  • Startup Venture Acceleration
  • Open Source Development
  • Collaborative Technologies
  • International Business & Trade
  • New Economy / Self-Employed
  • California Economy and Politics

Communities

I run several different communities here on Google+ - some are large and well established, some are small and experimental - all are intended to get people working together for mutual benefit.

Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed, and Small Business.  This is a large and growing public community - more than 60,000 members now -  that I founded for entrepreneurs, small business owners, startup founders and the self employed  It provides a platform where entrepreneurs from all around the world can meet, share information, engage in discussions and sometimes cooperate for mutual benefit.   Some have told me it is the best managed business community on Google+. All are welcome no matter how small or humble the business or venture. 

Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative.  A private community here on Google+ called the "Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative" where we each volunteer of offer a small amount of our extra "brain power" to help each other advance in our lives, business or careers.  

Personal Growth, Self-Improvement & Life Balance.  An open discussion of personal growth and self improvement in all its aspects, from the pragmatic, to the ethereal.  Includes discussions about self improvement, personal effectiveness, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience and even spirituality - anything that involves growing to our full potential and leading better lives.    


Favorite Quotes

"He attacked everything in in life with a mixture of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence and it was often difficult to tell which was which".
Douglas Adams, "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy"

"All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you... But first, they must catch you"
Richard Adams, Watership Down

"Your mind. Your slow, plodding, tenacious mind. There has never been one quite like it, in all the history of the world. Perhaps in the history of creation." 
Stephen King - the Gunslinger.

DISCLAIMER:  I use Google+ as my personal micro-blog to post "whatever I want".   If you are offended by unconventional political and business ideas, unpopular opinions that sometimes go against the crowd, irreverent views about religion and morality, or a lack of respect for the status quo, I suggest that you not follow me.  While I am not totally insensitive to cultural norms, I will not "self censor" to accommodate anyone here.  In addition, I occasionally post material that is only appropriate for adults here so don't follow me if you are underage or might be offended by such materials.  See also: photo and image sharing policy: http://goo.gl/U0ICt
