People often talk of "degrees of separation." The success of any business is proportionate to how well connected your people are to decision and policy makers.
There is no substitute for high value friendships and contacts. Whether opening new markets, seeking funding, or looking to acquire, long term relationships with the right people mean getting business and keeping business.
The strength of the company is RELATIONSHIPS.
All Owners and CEO's know their companies.

- What has been lost in the inertia of daily business over time?
- What is not percolating from inside because of "comfort zone".

Place-making and Social Value Creation.
Comments on Future Economy
Improving the value of a community
Place-making is branding the collective real estate of a community or municipality for the purpose of stimulating the economy, jobs, and investment for the ultimate purpose of creating value.
The strategies recognize that a "place" being "made" requires a collaboration and the cooperation of developers, real estate investors, stakeholders, banks, local business owners, community leaders, government, etc. who all figure out how to create value collaboratively.
The topic is widely known as part of attracting the CREATIVE CLASS to former industrial cities which need to be re-imagined in order for people to flourish and for economic development to occur.
We began this process in Long Island City with a Community Symposium February 27/28, 2013. Johns Hopkins University is a center of study and application of Place-making, and its Associate Professor of the Carey Business School assisted along with our collague, David Wilk, an authority on Place-making and Corporate Value Creation.
Facts and Assumptions that Support Investment in Growth and Business Development Today.
The NOW Factor
Various Local, Regional, and National markets and categories of customers served by your company will benefit from an unprecedented SURGE of underlying economic support based on FIVE FACTORS that are happening right NOW.
The First factor that is changing the business community, due to special commitments by the Trump Administration, there is expected to be a $3.0 Trillion surge in re-patriated capital to the United States.
The Second factor is that Construction and Infrastructure projects in the United States will benefit from both Tax law changes as well as re-patriation of capital.
The Third factor that is unique is that the 421 A program in New York was dormant for over a year and construction commitments dropped. That is now reversed and the New York State Affordable Housing Act will mean major commitments to large scale commitments of all types.
The Fourth factor is that ENERGY Costs are increasing, refocusing attention on efficiency, staying local and buying local ..
The Fifth factor is that the recent changes in banking regulations will mean that Community Banks will be less regulated and therefore able to support the local business community….lifting the barriers that
have prevented small business growth since Dodd-Frank was passed.

Consequences of Not Taking Action NOW

Building a Knowledgebase
A Knowledge Base is a store of information.
Information about markets, customers, products, facts, people, procedures, proposals, letters, and ideas collected over time and available to a team empowers its members with knowledge.
Customer Relationship Management is only one aspect of a Knowledge Base.
If set up correctly, it can significantly improve your customers experience with your company.
"Bring Me the Winner"
An older jewish gentleman walked into a restaurant, sat down at a table, and looked at the menu. After a while the waiter came to the table and asked for the man's order.
The man replied that he would like a lobster.
A few minutes later, the waiter returned to the table with a lobster...with just one claw.
The old jewish man looked at the lobster that had just one claw.
He said to the waiter, "This lobster has only one claw."
The waiter explained that "the lobsters are flown in from Maine. They are in tanks. The lobsters fight. This one lost his claw."
The old jewish man replied "Then Bring me the Winner!"
