Start researching! Explore places where you want to do business (or where you're doing business).
Our goal is to develop television programs about these businesses. Though none of us are perfectly perfect, these people are still roll models for us all. Here we can explore the very nature of creativity, ethics and generosity. We can help each other be the best that we can possibly be.
We continue to develop television venues to accomplish this goal: Best Businesses of the World, and then Best Businesses of (the name of one of our 197 countries) such as Best Businesses of Ireland, Best Producers for the Best Businesses, Billionaires' Millionaires, and, of course, Small Business School... all focus on the best within all countries; these are the stories of people who make this world a better place. Every country, city and village of the world... let's discover the deepest insights everywhere! There are literally hundreds of thousands of new businesses that could be, and should be, started to begin serving the global community within local villages.
Time Zones: Cursor over the map and you will notice that time zones are at best an approximation. Also, many countries make up their own policies and define time uniquely for their country. This map is simply a guide to organize lists of great businesses, just 1% of the total within any country. The map is also on a page of simple facts for children (and adults) that will help nurture our global community.
As a starting point, we all need to know our Global Time Quadrants (GTQs).
Now, start your own research team and let us help you. Or, if you need a little guidance, join one of ours.
Your team will be recognized: Eventually there should be a team for every country and every region of a country that is within a time zone outside that country's capital. So, if you can answer the question -- "Where would you like to get to know the business advocates of a region of the world?" -- start a team and let us help you develop it. We can develop great teams and you will make great business contacts as well as connections with key producers and television people within that country or region.
You will help to change the very fabric of television. Eventually it will become a multi-dimensional meeting place to begin collaborating and doing business. The best stories, the richest content, can then be developed into documentaries that are broadcast around the world. Can you help? Please let us know.
The first focus: The information currently listed for each country and region is rough cut. It is a first draft. We will be refining it all.
In time zones 1-to-8 you will notice that the right column has unique information. It is also very rough cut / first draft material. It will be refined as follows:
Est. Population - (USE WIKIPEDIA) Est. Businesses - (DIVIDE BY 20)
» President: Name (EMBED WIKIPEDIA LINK IF AVAILABLE)
» Tourism: Names and links to the heads of tourism
» Commerce-Information: Names and links to the heads of departments
» Chamber of Commerce: Chairman of the Association
» Television: The #1, #2, and #3 stations with the CEO and email of each
» Producers: Any television producers within the country
» Research Team for Excellence: Behind every listing within every time zone there should be links to every marketplace of 400,000 people and their best 1% of their total number of businesses.
The second focus: We begin to identify as many as 10% of the businesses within the country, by owner, by integrity, generosity, and leadership. From that 10% we will encourage the local people to select and we narrow the focus down to the best 1%. In every population of 4 million people, there will be anywhere from 100,000 to 400,000 businesses. Our first list will be as large as 10,000 to 40,000 businesses. The optimal working list in each geography will be 1000 to 4000 businesses. Of that group, there will always be the top 100 to 400 businesses.
Do you know other good people in other parts of the country who might help?
Your invitation: If you know the name of other good people in countries around you, please invite them to volunteer. Send them a link to this page or send us their email address!
The first result:
1. A twenty-four hour, seven day a week, globally broadcast show that focuses on the Best Business within each of the 195 countries with populations over 100,000. As the world turns, during each time zone’s primetime from 6 PM to 10 PM, only episodes from those countries within those four time zones will air.
2. All episodes will be simulcast on the web.
3. All episodes will enjoy an online collaboration event during each broadcast and local hosted by business leaders for a half hour after the broadcast. These best practices will be studied and analyzed and adopted.
4. All the transcripts and case study guides will be constantly indexed on the web as well. The model is http://SmallBusinessSchool.org where over 2000 videos from just 140 of our episodes currently exit.
5. The goal is to have 336 unique, half-hour episodes air each week. That is 48 episodes per day, seven days a week. That's a challenge but not beyond the realm of possibility. For example, if there were twenty episodes per week from the two countries with over a billion population, that would be 40 episodes of the 336. If there are ten episodes per week from the ten countries with populations between 100-400 million, that would be 100 of the 336. If there were no less than five episodes per week from the eleven countries with populations between 50-and-100 million, we add another 55 episodes. If there were no less than three per week from those 56 countries with a population between 10-and-50 million, we add 168 more episodes. The subtotal is now 363. That allows for 10% shrinkage. Plus, the remaining 117 countries with populations under 10 million (105) were to do an occasional episode, there would always be more than enough..
There is a technology ramp-up using variable short segments from 2-to-5 minutes long. We will soon all know the answers to key questions; Which time zone has the fewest people? ...the most populous? ... the most creative and productive? ...international patents per year? ...by industry, i.e. construction, manufacturing, food production, etc? ...high school and college graduates?
