sense of mission: leaving a legacy.

Creating high purpose and high standards

1) I like sleeping ( furniture store)
    I like dancing  (dance supply store)
    I like eating (food tester)
    I like exercising (personal trainer)
    I like laughing (happy pills)
    I like spending time with my family (therapist)

2)  I'm good at socializing (night club)
     I'm good at dancing ( dance studio)
     I'm good at driving (driving teacher)

3) Lower prices
do i have the cash ?
     No i do not have the cash to obtain these goals

Competitive position?

although I might have competition, I have the determination and goals to do so 

Seven Deadly Sins.
I'm okay - you're okay
This produces terminal inaction
We are not okay... We are NEVER okay!
crisis...and a sense of urgency are necessary for organizations to grow.

2) one best way
Silences workers forever.
Kills innovation.

3) Out of touch with competitors and customers 
your next great idea comes from competitors and customers

4)Centralize everything
This is all about controlling things... is bigger actually better ?
When i doubt-decentralize

Seth Godin explains that when your building a business that you don't really have to like it, but having a business that is remarkable is the way to go! Having people thought's and having people even talk about your business is getting your business out there, and having publicity for something people find amazing! In the end they key learning to me that i got from this video is that making a business that is remarkable or memorable is far more interesting and beneficial then to have a business that is known!

 Something remarkable that could be added to our community in Cultus lake could be cleaner water and beaches such as sand. In addition to cleaner beaches, more junior amusement and activity would be a good way to get the word going around about Chilliwack. The way we can do this is adding perhaps a alcohol/drug free disco for younger kids, and indoor amusement park. For Sardis we could use newer technology as ipads, mac books, and pda's. Our entrepreneur class could include weekly presentations at different places for better learning basis.

Richard branson

Richard branson was born 18 July 1950  is an English entrepreneur, best known for his successful tasks known as the virgin group as well as more than 400 other companies. Richard was born in London, he went to school until the age of 13 where he dropped out because he had dyslexia.

Bransons adventure begun in in 1999 when Virgin mobile had launched. He was 9th in the Sundays Time's rich list, worth just about 3 billion dollars. Soon after formed V2 records to re-enter the music business. In 1992 Richard sold his business Virgin mobile to "EMI" for 500 million euros. Later Branson re created what most people thought was risky virgin airlines, virgin trails. The airlines first exploited in Europe and then traveled to America. Another one of his accomplishment's were later in 2007 where he became "Eco-friendly". The virgin earth challenge in the belief that history has shown that prizes of this nature encourage technological advancements for the good of mankind. The Virgin Earth Challenge will award $25 million to the individual or group who are able to demonstrate a commercially viable design which will result in the net removal of anthropogenic, atmospheric greenhouse gases each year for at least ten years without countervailing harmful effects. This removal must have long-term effects and contribute materially to the stability of the Earth's climate.

As a result Richard Branson seemed to be an unsuccessful drop out at only age 13, soon later his business' were worth over 4 billion dollars, and himself being worth 3 billion dollars.  His devoted and kind heart is what seemed to help him through all these years.
