HomeTown Competitiveness is a Come-Back / Give-Back approach to rural community building. HomeTown Competitiveness started in 2002 with a simple goal: Help rural communities build upon the assets they already have. Milan Wall, Co-Director of the Heartland Center will help you understand the concept behind HTC and give a couple of examples of communities that have seen a positive impact.
The founders of the program knew that rural communities already have everything they need to be successful. 10 years after its inception, the benefits of HTC can be seen across the country as small communities are attracting new residents and becoming competitive in the global economy.
A Come-Back/Give-Back Approach to Rural Community Development. HomeTown Competitiveness has been helping small towns across America for more than 10 years. It helps them build upon the assets they already have. Learn how HTC can help in your community in this brief interview with Milan Wall of the Heartland Center for Leadershipo Development.
HTC focuses on four key areas:
1. Developing local leadership
2. Increasing community philanthropy
3. Energizing entrepreneurs
4. Engaging youth
Competition is a natural part of life and business, and it can have positive or negative outcomes depending on the situation and the actions we take as it occurs. Younger generations, especially, enter the workforce with a fiercely competitive attitude that stems from the guidance of parents who encourage them to be the very best at what they do. A rugged, individualistic spirit can certainly drive employees to get ahead and soar up the ladder of success, but there is an essential component missing. As leaders, we must establish a culture of collaboration and teach our teams the lessons of teamwork.
This week’s guest is Margaret Heffernan, entrepreneur, five-time CEO, keynote speaker and author of noted works such as “Willful Blindness” and “Women On Top.” Her most recent book, “A Bigger Prize Why Competition Isn’t Everything and How We Do Better,” explores the all-consuming desire to win and why competition so often breeds corruption, lies and cheating. Margaret explains the alternatives to competition in business – the most prominent being collaboration and helpfulness. As the days of the heroic soloist slip further into the past, the C-Suite must embrace a new model of leadership — one that nurtures and guides a team of shining stars. She advises leaders to practice silence and sharpen their listening skills to allow their team’s creative and innovative ideas to surface.
The best leaders surround themselves with talent and creativity. Successful executives are willing to hire those who will be unabashedly honest about what they could do better. When we allow ourselves to absorb feedback from a team of vigorous collaborators, we take the first steps to redefining success. It is our job to create a system where each leader and employee is encouraged to help each other, and we must reward helpfulness instead of competitiveness.

A Grand Lodge provides constitutional protection. Only a Master Mason protects the Landmarks.
Charles Dawin hesitated 7 years to publish his work. Darwin understood his thesis on natural selection was radical. He also knew his peers. He knew as soon as he published, his life would change. Friendships and respect would be lost; they would isolate him and he would be hurt by their smug mockery and ridicule. He could not then protect his own reputation and 'the good name' of his family and be true to science. Darwins history tells us a great deal about the cost of facts that challenged popular belief. Victorians were champions of shaming.
But hind sight has moved Darwin off the black list that did occur. His science was defining. Today it is still misquoted and manipulated to serve a sad prejudicial agenda.
When Charles the student first boarded the Beagle, he had no celebrity, no findings, no research; just a curiosity and talent for observation.
We might say when he eventually published, he was ready to make the sacrifice but that isn't quite the case. Darwin had dithered. Science had moved on and another researcher publishing a monograph that outlined 'his' findings. So was it hurbris that kept him moving? Ego? Competitiveness? We will never truly know. Decide for yourself if he was selfish suppressing science to 'avoid' the hypocity of peers. Would it be fair to think we escape that same chemistry of shame and compliance? Have we not be part of our own process of discovery? Did we not build mind vaults of mystery and esoteria that watermark every page of masonic history?
Why Can't Some Women Get Along? It seems in some cases the claws come out, even before the introductions!!!
Wretchedness ... Ratchetness!
Jealousy & Envy.
Tonight, we talk about the thin line between love and hate and the 'womanly' relationship some women choose to share with other women...cloaked in lies and deceit. Why is it such a competitiveness between women, and or a lack of trust between many? Regardless of race.
Is it greed?
Is it insecurity?
Is it the passion and the need to be number one in everything?? Knowing full well that the diversity and numbers within women cultures, talents and beauty are infinite?
Is it a lack of self love that creates opportunities to bully others... being the Mean Girl?
Or... is it just a case of just being trifling?
We all have encountered these types. Tonight we talk about it, and ways to counter-act or deal with obnoxious vixens.

Todays show: More and More Stuff: "I have never been interested in the “he who dies with the most toys wins” philosophy. I attribute this to being an “old soul.” Having lived many lifetimes, I think one begins to acquire wisdom and an ability to see how little value there is in obsessive acquisition. The more we strive to acquire things and get caught in the grips of greed, the more we will inevitably suffer. When taken to an extreme, competitiveness and voracity can be very unattractive. An obsessive need to have the best cars, largest house, designer shoes, and even the most elaborate parties (see if you can make it through an episode of the television show My Sweet Sixteen to know what I mean) carries a heavy price tag. When we get caught up with “keeping up with the Jones” we will probably eventually lose. Someone will always have more money and better “stuff...” Join me for a live coulimn read and discussion about how we can learn to live in abundance without the need for greed.
Your own jealousies, competitiveness, in-fighting, unwillingness to support one another and pettiness with other black people is what’s keeping you from moving forward. You have people who say that they support you, but when it comes time to show that support they are nowhere to be found. Hmmm. There is enough food out here to eat for everyone, so why are we so afraid that if we help one another that we will no longer be able to eat! Hmmm! Take a look arounnd you and take notice of the culture of people who are excelling in businesses, guess what, they support one another. Hmmm SO WHY CAN'T WE!!!!

New House Majority Leader Elected
California Rep. Kevin McCarthy
Who is he? Coming from Califorina what can we expect?
Jun 14, 2013
Washington D.C. – Congressman Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement in regard to the House passage of the fiscal year 2014 National Defense Authorization Act:
“I am also proud that this bill includes legislation, which I authored, to secure the future of NAWS and save taxpayer dollars by permanently conveying the land used by the base to Department of the Navy. As one of our nation’s premier defense installations, I am pleased that my provision recognizes China Lake’s strategic importance and is strongly supported by the community. I urge the Senate to move quickly to provide certainty and support to our military and the millions who have served with tremendous honor.”
"It strains credibility that the Obama Administration would reject the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline project, and even more outrageous that this political decision comes just one day after the President's own Council on Jobs and Competitiveness endorsed the idea as a job creator"
