Who dares offer a job for life?  Joe does.

Southwestern, New Mexico: In this episode of the weekly television show, we go into New Mexico as guests of the Chamber of Commerce of Las Cruces and Silver City. When we asked them, "What is your biggest business problem?" both said "Job creation." So, we asked, "What businesses are creating jobs?" When all the nominations were in,  we emerged with a list of over 100! 

Small Business is the job creation engine of an economy.

The reason is simple. Small business is not about going out and getting a job.  It is about creating good work, first for oneself, and then as the processes and procedures begin to work very well, then for others. 

When you start a business, you are forced to answer the question, "What are my gifts and talents?"  You are forced to be an adult... to say, "I'm in charge."  Once that settles into a way of life, we say,  "I want to be in charge of my life.  I'll take full responsibility for myself... for my health... for my future well-being if I ever retire."

So, we asked practically every small business advocate in the state  of New Mexico, please tell us, "Who would represent your state well?" and it was quickly obvious that any five businesses from the list 100 would be fine. In this episode we visit with five businesses and try to learn why they are being so successful in creating work for others. 

We learned a lot.  Go to the Key Ideas and the Video

The Millers bootstrapped their business. Most of us do. Financing the start or early-stage growth is never easy. Key Question: Where do I find the money?

Hattie watches as the #1 product is demonstrated, their Saris Bike Rack.

Buy a Business
They sell to the world and they get the best designers from all over the world. Yet, Sara & Chris Fortune bought a business that had some land mines. Their story is about integrity over all.


Sell a Business
You may be doing so well one of your customers or one of your suppliers may come knocking on your door. Biosite is now being sold to a much larger business -- one of their customers. They both sell their products globally.
