After coming across an article on Yahoo News about the Last Sardine Cannery in the US closing then continuing onto an article about Last of Their Kind businesses in the US from CNN Money that was posted on the Business Opportunity Weblog I am really starting to wonder if the USA has basically become the annex of China. Since we seem to be getting most of our ‘stuff’ from China and have been graciously provided economic assistance from them in the form of loans aren’t we basically getting a ‘rebate’ from them since we are such good customers?
So, I thought that it’s time for some good old American entrepreneurial spirit and start a business that is American based and American in philosophy. That is a concierge business that not only provides time and money saving services to businesses and households, but also provides community sustainment. Can this work? I mean, after looking at the local and national economy, you would think that this could be a bad time to start such a venture. The difference here is that this service based approach has three fronts. First, provide community sustainment by the recycling of clothing and technology tied with the donation of staple and non-perishable food items back to the community. Second, as the company grows, provide jobs to others as independent contractors (miro-entrepreneurs). Third, provide a socially conscience business model for others to use. Another difference here is that this is NOT a non-profit group that one might suspect a socially oriented enterprise might be it is a Limited Liability Corp. (LLC) and has the ambition of TOMS Shoes, but initially at the local and regional levels. So, at the grass-roots level, my wife, son and myself formed DMR Services, LLC to provide a range of support services to homes and businesses while providing a community building ideal.
We really need to take back more than just oil reliance from other countries. We need to take back ourselves as a nation that provides more for its-self and breaks the global reliance we seem to have while still being a provider to the global community that has been ‘pushed’ to the background. We can do this! It starts with each individual wanting to grow a sustainable community with much less government support (from ALL parties).
