In the meantime, if you want to help me with the Hip Pocket Fund (my thin wallet) to cover my time to write, expand and maintain this web site, just buy a copy of my book, "Mastering Your Marketing". It is an educational publication that just might help you achieve a higher level of success in your career and business. At first blush, it might seem expensive: $299.00 plus tax in Virginia. However, this is comparable to most self-paced learning texts, and a lot less than a seminar using the same material or a private college course on the subject (parts of the pragmatic, real world instead of academic, content of this 24 step Guidebook have now been used in a private college for several years as an alternative to about 40% of the content of a dominant marketing text from a top ranked publisher. The third class enrollment -- January 2011 --doubled! Also, a private University professor (MBA program) started using it as a supplemental business development planning text in January 2011, and is continuing to use it in 2012 and 2013. The Fall 2011 schedule had twice as many marketing classes based on student demand for the learning experience driven by the content of this book. SHOCK: A professor at a public UNIVERSITY, after looking at the contents, said he hoped his students do not learn about this Guidebook -- it makes learning about marketing-driven business planning too fast and easy! He added, those that do use it probably will ace the business planning course! The reality is working business owners do not have four years to sit in a classroom -- time is real money to them -- and this Guidebook saves them a lot of time, effort and money). Private consulting on the subject requires a retainer deposit (call me regarding my availability and for more information).
The book has a 30 day money-back guarantee. See details regarding limited and controlled distribution of the book at www.RGIofVa.com (the guarantee does not apply to resales, illegal copies, or copies not purchased directly from Randall Group, Inc.) This reflects our confidence based on buyers during the past several years: once they get it, and realize the power of its contents, they do not want to part with it. "Mastering Your Marketing" will show you how to prepare your own custom marketing-driven business plan or leverage your present business.
Please go to www.RGIofVa.com for more details and to order by phone, mail or on-line, i.e. credit card purchase. Mastering Your Marketingand the other publications that I have authored are available only in English, and we do not supply copies outside of the United States. Any copies offered from outside the United States should be considered illegal copies, and we would appreciate notification of such offers if you get them.

ABOUT THE USBA.us
This is a service to enhance the outlook for the ultra-small business community in the United States: 3,000,000 independently owned firms seeking the pride and freedom of entrepreneurship by doing business with each other.

This web site is funded from my hip pocket by earned advisory fees and sales of educational business books and publications I have authored since 1979 (i.e. by John C. Randall ) at RGIofVa.com. Buying these valuable "real-world based" publications is a fully-deductible business expense, not a charitable item. Publications from the Randall Group, Inc., have a 30 day money-back guarantee (see web site for details). The ads on this site are NOT google(tm) or amazon(tm) ads, they are simply links to sites that you can explore and use if you wish to contact me for my services and publications. Also this entity does not endorse any use of social media as a primary means for development of an independent enterprise or church, even though many do so (at their own risk of dependency). Hint: Get your own domain name and independent web site hostiing and e-mail service.
I may also be available as a speaker for your group, conference, convention, trade show, radio or TV broadcast, etc. Contact me at John@JohnCRandall.com for availability and rates. Also, if you are an aspiring politician, you might wish to contact me for insights that are not published.

P.S. If you did the math, you discovered that I am only 85 years old. I am still very much alive, serving clients and blessed to be healthy, living life to the fullest, day-by-day, and all the Glory goes to the one true God: the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
