What I am working on:

What I am working on:
Actually I have so many projects in various stages of completion that I created a website at www.acresofdiamondsintherough.com. Perhaps the most relevant to share here are the fact that we recently incorporated the Community Economic Development Resource Center, Inc. and an affiliated NPO CAN DO Personal, Organizational, and Community Empowerment, Inc. One of our initial projects is publishing (and developing related training programs on) What GOOD Would You Do With A Million Dollars to help introduce the benefit corporation model, equity crowdfinancing, and the principles and practices of CED which include Self-Help, Empowerment, and Capacity-building. www.whatgoodwouldyoudo.com
