You don't. Nor should you trust it. Not that they aren't cool or trusted by cool people. Systems can be infiltrated without their knowledge. Knowing people in person makes a huge dif. Especially for quality private communication.

Ever notice how asking the right question often does wonders for removing roadblocks? Fran Peavey's short (30 pages) Strategic Questioning Manual is a must-read for (would-be) changemakers.

Starting a business with an "exit plan" for yourself & investors isn't entrepreneurship, it's just a financial play. Entrepreneurship is investing yourself in building lasting value & a better future

Like in all relationships, staging a plan for loyalty is a good idea!! Loyalty, however, is like ethics ... you can't have it just some of the time.

Instagram'd last night's dinner, an amazing neo-Afghan chicken roulade stuffed with feta, spinach & mushrooms and served with a cranberry burgundy reduction. Amazing. At Kabul in Madison.

Money is not the true measure of value.

"There is something old fashioned about a time bank. Home repair, child care, visiting shut-ins and taking someone to the doctor are now often commercial transactions; a time bank is a return to an era where neighbors did these tasks for each other. But a time bank is also something radical. It throws out the logic of the market — in a time bank, all work has equal value. A 90-year-old can contribute on an equal basis with a 30 year old. Accompanying someone to the doctor is as valuable as Web design."

In this time of high unemployment, time banks, which let people exchange skills and services, are more valuable than ever.

I'm finding more people who are interested in Time Banking in Hendo. Are you still up for it, +Kendall Weaver?
