I am a self-made individual that came from middle class, humble beginnings. My life has been rich with triumphs & tragedies. Success wise, I have pushed through the glass ceiling imposed on me... many times. Today, I want to make my horizons benefit myself & my interests, both public & private. I have done so well for others in the past... now it's time for me to breathe in a lifetime of opportunities.
My desire is to further the teachings & lessons learned of the Woodrow Wilson, TR, FDR, JFK, & LBJ eras.
After losing my best lifetime achievement, officially on the very day that George Harrison of the Beatles died... November 30th, 2001, I fumbled around developing my own way on my journey-- bushwacking can be dangerous to your health.
Finally, I convinced myself that I had to MOVE ON and follow my own instincts & visions-- that is when I created Masters & Masters
, An Innovative Private Investment firm.
I had come to the realization that Ideas are worthless if they are not VESTED; therefore, I learned how to invest in ventures with the limited resources I have, which is a lot of Time & Knowledge-- the rest will come through Others that you INSPIRE.
My interests are both Large & Wide... My agenda grows constantly... and you can keep up with these events by visiting my Masters & Masters
My largest interest thus far has to be Lighter-than-Air Technology (LTA). I thought all hope was lost after July 2004 when the Bush Administration cut the US Department of Defense's (DOD) R&D Darpa budget, which involved the gutting of the Walrus project that they had been working on since 2000 or earlier. Guess what? My hope has been lifted because I just found out last week that the Walrus Project is running full blast ahead due to recent alternative technology demands.
Folks, this is a G8 Solution that is JFK-WALKING ON THE MOON stuff of legends... I can't emphasize enough. The benefits of such a leap of technology is enormous. But...
Many Baby Steps have to be made before one can Run & Leap Forward, and if I can achieve traction with any of my ventures... that just gets me one step closer to fulfilling my dreams.
And My Dreams & Interests are To Be or Not To Be in...
o Washington, DC
o Board membership on many innovative Companies & Foundations
o A Global Investor
o A Chairman & sometimes CEO of many of My Ventures
o A Innovator & Inspiration to Other Leaders around the World
o A Quality of Life Advocate
I only have another 40 years of my life to give, so I am in a hurry you see.
Networking is the Key to the Success of Planting Seeds, and I hope by opening up this dialog that other eyes may see, discover, & pass on what they have learned as an opportunity not to pass up. I have high HOPES that these eyes are out there, due to the vast availability of the blog & forum parking lots on the Net. Rainmakers will come... and the Crop of Innovation will be Harvested in due Time.
I don't believe in Global Poverty, I believe in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, which was meant to be guaranteed in the United States' Declaration of Independence,
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
