INVEST IN TALENT
I know a very smart young woman who can't find a decent job in this modern world which has Wall Street failing, all the big corps firing workers resulting in endemic joblessness and ALL THAT coming at the same time as rents and food costs doubled.
A plucky lass I ran across told me how she is brainstorming up wild ways to attract a grand job for herself. Her target? OPRAH's TV show. She has taken it upon herself to advise the producers of the show by email and letters on what show THEMES HARPO PRODUCTIONS might perhaps pursue -- - Interesting stuff ...like the plague of doubling food prices, the frugal kitchen (tips) How to fight increasing joblessness ---things that the average viewer might find relevant. As you can see, above at these URLS, each TOPIC had 100 SUB TOPICS for 100 different shows.
She also tossed in some heroic ROLE MODELS that OPRAH might not know about -- perhaps NEW HEROES in international trade as well as the artisans in the third world and what they produced. Or just plan HEROES abroad and in THE USA...like that pediatric Maleria doctor in Africa, Dr. Juliana Otieno.
With inflation rampant, the stock market and Wall Street in disarray, bonds and stocks are fairly over with so she might tout Oprah onto a show about INVESTING in something new. TALENT. Young WINNERS. And that's investing LOCALLY which brings enrichment to a community.
The segment would show us a dozen people who didn't put their life savings in bonds (inflation takes the profits) or stock markets, (Wall Street Fraud, Inflation again dice the profits.) The show's theme would be people who invested in young talent and won.
Back in the eighties, I read a terrific book called "CEO" by Sandra Kurtzig who'd discovered a software service that banks needed, working for Hewlett Packard, and she started that service out of her garage. In a year she was billing millions. And in five years, went public, sold corporation for 422 million dollars. That's what I mean by young talent!
Inspire seniors who have a few million stashed to take a little bit of their extra cash and create a new business, even if it's just a small, local garage based business. Henry Ford, Bill Gates and Sandra Kurtzig all started in a garage!
The concept is that the smart senior would invest in talent involved with some merchandise or service that the community desperately needs.
They would put ads up at colleges and find young people who were about to graduate school in something very high tech like shoe making, dressmaking, nature healing, car repair. I'm stressing things that we all need and might prefer to buy locally rather than buy them at Wal-mart and enrich China.
The investor sets the artisan worker up in a small business. The investor becomes a partner so they should do half the work. For instance, do their books. Salary the younger partner once a week, Friday nite at closing time. Give them job security.
Tell them that after all expenses, when the business goes into profits, you will do a half and half, fifty/ fifty split. I imagine that when the community is beating down their door to get handmade sandals, purses, belts or dresses, or hair cuts or artisan baked bread, that worker will feel like DUMPING the investor. Make that impossible.
It is important to GET THE talented worker TO SIGN to THAT effect in a pre nuptial contract, where you state clearly, 'if the second party walks out of the business, the first party gets to take over the building, the lease, the store name and hire someone ELSE to do that work in order to save the first party's CASH INVESTMENT."
'That's a clear "NO OUT WITHOUT LOSS FOR THE artisan PARTNER" clause. The clause must stipulate that IF THEY WALK, they will take nothing of the business at that point. Not the name of the business, not the business machines, tools or the clients or their purchases if such has been ordered.
That clause keeps the junior partner in his or her place. He/She may do a lot of work 5 days a week, but the investor created this business with hard earned cash so the artisan has to respect that. It's like a marriage, strictly joint custody all the way.
