This is what Carol says about partnering with SCORE:
  
I am beyond thrilled to be partnering with SCORE nationally and would love to partner with you personally to help achieve the goal of creating one million successful new businesses by 2017.
As you well know, small businesses are being touted as the growth engine that will save our economy. But I am sure you that would agree it will only be the case if we can change the success statistics related to small business. I believe in the mantra, “if you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail” and with up to 90% failure rates of businesses, entrepreneurs need more interactions with valuable advisors like the ones at SCORE.

Other book thoughts :

  • Too Big to Fail Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System---and Themselves by Andrew Ross Sorkin : This book reads like a exciting novel with a inside view of how Wall Street works where connections are everything . In my mind folks like Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase are the real heroes and my esteem of Wall Street went up. Reading the book I now feel America will rise up to any crisis putting any differences behind and act quickly. here is a extract from a Washington Post review:


  • If Lehman failed, Citigroup, Merrill Lynch and others were in danger. The task of saving financial markets fell primarily to President George W. Bush's Treasury secretary, Henry "Hank" Paulson, the former leader of Goldman Sachs; Timothy Geithner, head of the NY Federal Reserve (later the Obama administration's Treasury secretary); Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase; and Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve chair. When Paulson and Dimon had worked on Bear's rescue, Paulson had urged Dimon to offer $2 a share. Dimon went to $10 so shareholders would not reject it. Paulson thought that was better than Bear deserved.
    • Himalayan Dhaba by Craig Joseph Danner – I am a sucker for all books India, tales of the Raj days is my favorite. I picked up this book at the temporary library Montgomery County has setup in the Lake Forest Mall while the Gaithersburg library is being renovated. While the book is fictional author Craig Danner actually worked in the Himalayas as a doctor . Now wonder some of the details in the book are so close to reality – taxi drivers, dhabas, porters unloading luggage from buses. This is a good book , however I caution you that this book is not for those who expect a happy and cheerful book but definitely a adventure and a eye into a vast new world.
    • Searchial Marketing: How Social Media Drives Search Optimization in Web 3.0 by Dr Alan Glazier @eyeinfo :- I have  read preview copy of  this book yet and I have been told I am part of this book atl east as a contributor for a blurb on the book’s cover so i am eager to get a autographed copy soon. How did a doctor school himself in the intricacies of social media and search engine marketing to not only create a success for his business but also become and expert speaker on the subject, the book will definitely tell you.
