Global TV. Locally-produced episodes.
Upon the foundations of Small Business School several new television series shall arise. First, to be called by the rather large title, The Best Businesses of the World, there is good reason to believe that this series will be focused on some of the very finest businesses in existence today.
Small Business School has been a "how-to" series that focuses on best business practices of those small business that are loved in their communities and respected within their industries. Usually about 200 businesses are nominated from within a broadcast area, then the governor, mayors, and other local business advocates vote and a businesses is selected. A requirement has been that the founder of that business must still be alive and the focus of the show is examination of the key business decisions of that person. Although most episodes have focused on privately-held businesses with fewer than 500 employees, large businesses and publicly-traded companies have been profiled.
These episodes are just a half-hour and usually include six to twelve key ideas that are then used as a basis for a case study guide. This series is made for educational television.
The next generation of that show will expand and build on that format.
Global listings of good businesses
All to be dynamically online: Every listing in every country will be made from somebody who loves that business. Every listing will eventually be qualified by a group of business advocates within that country and the second list from every country will emerge. This listing will always be of the top 100 businesses and as many as 2000 businesses within a given geography. Eventually every geography will be divided by television signals to every 4 million people. Within this entire global village, there should be less than 2000 yet more than 1000 listings! More...
The earlier foundations
The Small Business School listings of wonderful businesses began in 1994, first with the people who were nominated and selected to become the focus of an episode of the show. And, as people watched those first episodes, many wrote or called and said, "I know a business that is as good as that one! Do an episode of the show about these people. They are wonderful!"
In 1995 when the Voice of America began broadcasting the show throughout the world, again letters, emails and telephone calls would come virtually every day, "Do an episode of the show about this company!" More...
Let's get to know the world by Time Zones
UTC or Coordinated Universal Time: UTC is a useful tool to keep the entire world on same relative time with each other, but it is confusing to understand time zones and it clouds of our very understanding of the nature of time. Throughout this website and television series, every time zone will be known by the number of hours behind the beginning of the new day. When it turns 12 AM in Kiribati, it will be 9 PM in Sydney (less 3 hours), 8 PM in Seoul and Tokyo (TZ4), 7 PM in Beijing (TZ5), 4 PM in Mumbai (TZ8), 11 AM in London (TZ13), 4 AM in NYC (TZ18), and 1 AM in Hawaii (TZ23). Once we know in which time zone a country or city is (and we know the time zone we are in), calculating the current time of another becomes easier.
