has a title that says it all. Norm Brodsky has been writing

Like MIT, PARC
(Xerox), Bell Labs, and IBM, this agency of the Pentagon develops highly

between business and its local communities has led to the decimation of the
Middle Class. And, it affords business the ability to make society as a

Any choice you make -any
decision -will benefit from 10-10-10. Are our decisions the right
ones? Or are we being governed, time and time again, and against our best
intentions, by the demands of the moment? 10-10-10 provides you a
concept to get control of your life- home, work, love...: What are the
consequences of my decision in 10 minutes? In 10 months? And in 10 years?
This concept started out as a magazine article in O (Oprah)- and the book
fleshes it out a little (with a lot of stories to amplify). The article in O
may be enough to get you started...
The key facts that small (less than 99 full-time employees) businesses need
to know to assure they are in compliance with the Affordable Care Act
(Obamacare). Facts- not inuendo.
