Let Us All Work Together To Build Our Communities

  Business advocacy begins at home.

The USA:  This special episode is a salute to the volunteer work done by the 25 million small business owners in the USA.

Over and over here you learn why, "Business is not about greed."

Although there are plenty of greedy people within business, the very first principle of business is that we are only a business when we create something of value and to do this we each must give more than we take.  Small business owners are the major volunteers, especially in Chambers of Commerce. Chambers are the local torchbearers of good business for every community. They are the foremost advocates for a better future for everyone.

As a group, we can become major transformative agents of business, culture and our world. As a group, we need to engage everyone to reward good behavior and turn our backs to bad behavior.

The Chambers recognize and often reward those who do good things within a community. They reinforce the good and they discuss, analyze and attempt to change the bad. Since 1994 we have turned to the Chambers to validate, recommend and guide us with the selection of businesses for each episode of the show. The people within the Chambers know who are the givers and who are the takers. The Chambers know who are the thinker and leaders.

In this program learn from many owners why they volunteer.

When Chambers of Commerce work well, everybody benefits.

Your business should challenge you to be better everyday in every way. If not, you have choices.
