Interesting breakdown of US debt- 2/3 of it is owned by the US.

It's interesting when a company sells, how they rationalize the sale to their customers. Something is off about how this post finishes at the end- why would the customers be excited about this?

I spent most of yesterday afternoon reviewing and working on the positioning of our products and services. Sorta a gut check and refinement of the core ideas. We've got a lot of exciting pieces of this puzzle coming together on the product side of the business.

After more than two years, it's exciting to know that our mission statement work still holds up. http://www.zurb.com/article/263/the-dreadful-mission-statement

Can someone explain to me why we're so worried about a AAA rating when we're 14 trillion dollars in debt? Makes no sense. The damage was done a while ago. Let's stop spending money we don't have.

Interesting article.

"Indeed, since the dawn of the Great Recession, more Americans have started businesses (565,000 of them a month in 2010) than at any period in the last decade and a half, according to the Kauffman Foundation, which tracks statistics on entrepreneurship in the United States.

The lures are obvious: freedom, fulfillment. The highs can be high. But career switchers have found that going solo comes with its own pitfalls: a steep learning curve, no security, physical exhaustion and emotional meltdowns. The dream job is a “job” as much as it is a “dream.”

This is new to people? I spent years doing 80 hour weeks to get a business off the ground. It's not for everyone. And the risk/reward is not always there.

I think now is a great time to give go-getters in companies more room to flex their entrepreneur skills to create growth.

Think he hits the nail on the head when he says we're in a slow decline, the kind people tend to ignore and not act on. Also interesting to hear a proponent of increased government intervention, especially in light of the recent colossal failures of congress.
