When an idea hit Rich Behen while still in college he didn't push it aside. He graduated Northern Illinois University, went on to become a Certified Public Accountant and start his own accounting firm but continued to work on his idea.
Rich did not allow failures, lack of time or money to deter him. For 30 years he worked to bring his dream of a lightweight easy to mount plow for use on small vehicles (ATVs, Tractors, etc) to fruition.
In January 2012 he become the founder and CEO of Nordic Plow which in just over a year has been so successful that the estimated sales this year are $2.5 million.
Inventor and Farmer, Andrew Beard~Born in Alabama in 1849, Andrew Beard spent the first fifteen years enslaved on a small farm in Alabama. A year after he was emancipated, he got married and became a farmer in a small city outside of Birmingham. While in Birmingham, he was able to develop and champion his first invention (a plow). Three years later, he patented a second plow. These two inventions earned him almost $10,000, with which he began to invest in real estate.

Governments and central bankers are still trying to convince people there's economic recovery underway.
But the actions they take look like they expect more turbulence ahead.
It appers the fasten seat belts signs are being lit, but will they give us an outright warning to assume a crash position?
Meanwhile, President Obama allegely presented a State of the Union address this week. But Mr. Obama sounds more interested in fostering division during his remaining years in office; vowing to veto Congressional action and to plow forward with his vision of fundamentally transforming America.
And there are ominous signs the Islamic State wants to put Mecca under new management. Can the Saudi royals keep dumping oil and still keep their kingdom politically stable?

This Matt's first "real" winter in 12 years... yet it seems like yesterday.
Holy s#!t, people! Winter makes you all crazy! Give me the "good ole days" of 50 being cold, not "a warmup" in between arctic snowstorms. I swore I would never own a winter coat again. Guess what my wife boiught me last month. Driving on these roads is like riding a bicycle, you never forget... I just wish I didn't have to remember.
Enough about that, what makes you crazy during the winter? Is it the shovelling, sweeping, scraping of ice and snow off of your cars, sidewalks and driveways? Do they plow the streets well where you live? What's it like getting around town? Do people drive better or worse around this time of year? Are you in LA and want to rub it in about how gorgeous the weather has been? Share your tales of wintertime woe, as we gather 'round the fire and spread a little "holiday cheer".
