My name is Jeff, a husband to a wonderful woman, father of 4, stepfather of 2, and grandfather of one. I've been an 'entrepreneur at heart' all my life. Today I'm a work from home entrepreneur helping others by reviving the American Dream of prosperity.

I started my first business venture at age 12 when a friend and I built a race track for motorcycles. We held weekly racing events that filled the grandstands with spectators. Throughout my adult life I have owned and operated various types of businesses that spanned the retail and service sectors.

About 7 years ago I began to study and analyze the Internet. I came to the realization that it is, without a doubt, the most powerful business tool ever known to mankind.

So I started looking for ways where that powerful tool could be used to help small businesses, as well as, those who would like to own a small business but were lacking the knowledge or experience to do so.

So, my mission is two-fold...

First, I am on a mission to help revive small business America.

The independently owned, mom & pop businesses are struggling. But, there is hope!

It's been proven that with a powerful web presence, along with proper search engine optimization, any small mom and pop business can compete with the same mega stores that have systematically destroyed them.

As a former owner of various small businesses, I am passionate about this subject. Hopefully, my articles will convey the challenge that small business America is facing. If this is a mutual concern, please join me.

Secondly, I have always had a desire to improve the lives of others. I now carry out that desire by helping people achieve the work from home dream by starting their own business. After all, "Working from home, and earning a living online, is the new American Dream", isn't it?

Thanks for reading my articles!
