    "White Rose" Sophia Scholl

    in History

    Sophia Scholl was born on May 9, 1921, the daughter of Robert Scholl, the mayor of Forchtenberg. Her full name was Sophia Magdalena Scholl. The family lived in Ludwigsburg, Germany from the summer of 1930 till spring of 1932, after which they moved to Ulm and finally to Munich where Sophie attended a secondary school for girls.


    At the age of twelve, she was required to join the Bund Deutscher Mädel (League of German Girls) as most young women at the time, but her initial enthusiasm gradually gave way to strong criticism. She was aware of the dissenting political views of her father, of friends, and also of some of her teachers. Political attitude had become an essential criterion in her choice of friends. The arrest of her brothers and friends in 1937 for participating in the German Youth Movement left a strong impression on her.


    After leaving school in 1940 Sophie became a kindergarten teacher at the Frobel Institute in Ulm-Soflingen. She had chosen this kindergarten job hoping that it would be recognized as an alternate service to 'Reichsarbeitsdienst' (National Labour Service), a prerequisite to be admitted to the University. However this was mistake as policy dictated that she had to serve six months of auxiliary war service as a nursery teacher in Blumberg. The military-like regimen of the Labour Service which caused her to change her views of National Socialism and eventually practice passive resistance.


    In the summer of 1942, the friends began to question and resist the principals and policies of the Nazi regime. The group decided to adopt the strategy of passive resistance that was being used by students fighting against racial discrimination in the United States. This included publishing leaflets calling for the restoration of democracy and social justice. These were distributed throughout central Germany and the Gestapo soon became aware of the group's activities.

    Know Your Numbers to Get More Done

    in Business

    in business you have to know your numbers. And who's better at numbers than the US Census Bureau?

    Still you ask - what does this have to do with your business?

    Well, first understand that you're not alone. Lots of other people have their own businesses too. All shapes and sizes. Loads and loads of them.
     


    If you look at the data that the Census provides - and I don't care if you're in the U.S., or not, this info applies - you'll see some startling info:
     



    There are 22,491,080 Solopreneurs in the US.
    They average 70 hours a week working.



    So what do they get from all that effort?

    They average $45,687.79 in annual revenue…

    90% make less than $100,000 per year.

    Stunned? Shocked? Crying out loud? It's ok, I can totally relate.

    Businesses that have between 1 and 20 employees (there are 5,217,507 of them in the US) average 180 hours of work done per week.

    Yes, that's right - not much more than double the hours the Solopreneur puts in.

    And the kicker?

    These businesses average $457,205.35 in annual revenue.


    Because business today requires more than one person - and more than that, the MORE people you can tap into, the better off you are.

    Want proof?

    The companies that have over 20 employees (2,179,121 of them) average a whopping over $13 million annually.

    So the more people you can tap into on a cost effective basis, the better off your business is going to be.

    People who should listen to the show are entrepreneurs, career coaches,
