Mods feel free to move...not sure if I put this in the right place.
First of all, sorry about the length of this post. I tried the shortened and condensed version but it left way too many windows of opportunity for
the trolls. I know that they’ll still find their way in but I have to believe this version has limited the liability a bit.
What I would really love is if we (here on ATS) could participate in building a business plan…it’s time to share our thoughts and hash this stuff
out or we are ALL going nowhere fast. Post your thoughts and ideas and let’s look for continuity.
I respectfully request that the trolls stay away from counterproductive measures that include an unnecessary dissection of a business plan’s
numerous components. Let’s just try to agree on some basics before we rip it apart. Thanks.
In the last six months or so the “revolution” based threads have increased here. That same sentiment (calling for a revolution) is starting to
spill into the streets. Not a day goes by anymore where I don’t hear someone in my community or family members/friends calling for a revolution.
It seems that after the words there is little or no follow-up. In other words, there is no start to the revolution. Or is there? Is the sentiment
enough; and if it is, what is it that is being started?
The reason (IMO) for the lack of obvious signs that something has started is because we all have our own ideas of what a real revolution is. We all
seem to be prioritizing based upon personal needs. Moral, ethical, religious and personal tenets mold our responses almost immediately when we
conjure up thoughts of resistance or change. Where do we start? Why can’t we get a grip on what we need changed and agree to move forward?
How can we start the ball rolling and get some momentum here? What is the consistent thread that is sewn into the fabric of humanity? What is it in
our individual cores that we can all relate to? When we answer that question, then we can truly start.
The problems that we are ALL faced with are a total degradation of humanity and a lack of appropriate and effective human response. A moral code
needs to be resurrected and shared by all. So where do we begin?
Whatever the effort, it has to be sustainable. There has to be a core of adherence. Much like a great business plan, there needs to be a well
thought out series of events that maintain an order that feeds directly back into the strength of the core (purpose). We’ve got to ask ourselves
what is our purpose? This is just like a business decides what it sells/provides to become profitable. There has to be a start-up phase that affords
opportunities to test ideas and to bring to market the concept. From that phase (start-up) we would be up and running with a better understanding of
effective efforts and a true awareness and recognition of obstacles/competition. This is when the plan takes a more deliberate course that leads to
profitability and or the exit strategy.
Q(s): So where do we start? What can we all agree upon?
A(s): How about basic human rights? I know that this isn’t a new or novel idea but what can we do with this core to make it effective and
sustainable? Hell…maybe even profitable?

Hopefully you have now read this list and have a starting point that we can share our thoughts on.
Take this list and ask yourself one question;
If it were my business to successfully promote and implement these human rights what would I do and where could I start?
Maybe the better way to handle this is to answer some questions about the phases of operation. The product/service that we are selling is basic human
Let’s try this:
Phase 1 Concept:
I have populated this based upon the fact that we are bringing basic human rights to market. Let’s make this product/service as popular as
Phase 2 Research & Development (planning):
This is the phase that we would technically be in now;
Let’s consider the following (your ideas here)…
• Demand Analysis-
• Identifying Competition (obstacles)-
• Identifying Other Obstacles-
• Support (how do we support those who are participating?)
• Market Analysis (where do we begin in an effort to obtain sustainable traction while developing an indestructible foundation?)-
• Exit Strategy- is there one--or is this ongoing?
The other phases that we can hopefully discuss later would be:
Phase 3 The Young Business
Phase 4 The Growth Stage
Phase 5 The Expanding Business Stage
Phase 6 The Established Business
Phase 7 The Mature Business Stage
Phase 8 The Exit Strategy
I look forward to your answers and for those who do respond, thank you in advance for putting your thoughts and minds on something that is
productive…let go of the doomsday stuff for a while and try to imagine this world as a better place that is suitable and comfortable for all of the
human race. We are all connected and we are all desperately needing to understand and properly utilize that connection.
