Now more than ever, America needs the creativity, innovation, and leadership that small businesses provide.

In 2002, I left corporate America to launch my own small business, CorePurpose, Inc. with a mission to assist companies of all sizes in focusing their collective talents on the actions that have the greatest impact for their success and in focusing on strong business fundamentals as a foundation for growth.

From December 2006 to December 2008, an opportunity to work with a talented team of staff and volunteers at the Arizona Small Business Association was just too good to say no to.  Together we tackled big challenges like health-care, workforce development, and raising the awareness of the importance of growing local businesses as an economic development strategy.  As CEO of the organization, I had the opportunity to work with thousands of businesses across the state, see how they were making a difference every day,  and  to experience first hand the power of small business as a driver in our economy.

2010 begins The Decade of Our Success, I am excited to use this blog as the beginning of a conversation on what we can all do together to  focus on our strengths, overcome challenges, and get our economy back on track.

I’m seeing great things happening under the radar as I make connections with companies in the Southwest and around the world.  Don’t let all the bad things in the media spook you – there are some really cool things happening all around us!

I hope you will stay tuned and join in the conversation.

    This all sounds very interesting. I have a TV show that features non-profits and charities, as I am a domestic violence and cancer sur-Thriver myself, and our local and state PBS channels like my show but need me to find the underwriters. How is that possible in today’s economy especially when I have no media sales background. please feel free to check out my web site and youtube clips to help answer my question.

    Aurea…You might want to check out http://www.CEOSpace.net where I’m certain you will ultimately be able to ‘connect’ with those who have the funds you desire, require and deserve to press your project forward… Many others Have.
    I too see that many great things are happening and will continue to happen as we go through a Shift in the Marketplace…as Greed takes a Back Seat as we move into an era of Co-operative Business and Mutually Beneficial Alliances…It’s about Time.

  3. Dear Joan,

    You’ve got a great blog – we really like it!
    We’ve got a great new product, and I think you’ll like it too. We are launching this new service in your area first of April.
    We hope that if you get to use it, you will love it, write about it, and then should any of your readers join our program, we will be happy to compensate you 20% of the membership fees for the life of their participation.
    ShoppingNanny.com is an online service that enables mothers and women shoppers to save money at the grocery store. The Shopping Nanny acts like a coupon expert who matches and combines savings specific to each shopping list. Ultimately, our members don’t have to spend the time to look for deals – the Nanny does it for her. If you look at the attached file below, I think you will understand what we do.
    Of course, if you have any questions, just email me back.
    Any way, if you would like to test this for 3 months for free – please reply back, and we will set up an account code for you to use (to also share with your readers).
    We hope you love this great new service.
