The American Dream: Building a business around one's passion...

You can become the best in the world...

Get Yourself a Big Goal. This key part of The American Dream  focuses the drive and courage you need. It becomes the basis of those restless nights of new thinking, going over things one more time, which opens the way to breakthrough insights.

Keep dreaming, be gracious and have tenacity Pictured just below is the result of such thinking. Hope LanCarte was a child when her father started this business.  Then the restaurant could seat 18.  Today it seats over 1000. 


Hope LanCarte surrounded by family.  They all work every day to make this little piece of paradise more like heaven on earth.   

This show is about The American Dream

This television series definitively confirms a definition of "the American Dream" offered by historian-author, James Truslow Adams. Back in 1931, he said that the dream is  that "...life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement (regardless of social class or circumstances of birth)."

Evidences of that dream can be found in most every episode of the show. Those in the left column simply jumped on the page.

There is always just a little bit more...
•   Our vision of business and life
•   Our simple global initiatives
•   The first principles of this business and life
•   A possible future of television
•   Global television

It is about being ethical, becoming successful, and giving back because you can.
