Good day... I know most of you opened the Pfennig up this morning hoping to get a blast of Chuck's witty writing style.  Well the airlines arranged for Chuck to stay in San Francisco a little longer, so you'll have to wait another day.  The currency markets continued to get hammered by the US$ on Friday with the dollar index climbing all the way back above 76, a level we haven't seen since mid February.  The dollar did sell off a bit in early European trading, but it has started to climb again as I write.

Get a Finger on the Trimtab
As R. Buckminster Fuller taught, a trimtab is a small lever the size of your thumb that steers huge, megaton steamships on the ocean.

You could push the boat all day with thousands of people and never move the ship. But put your finger on the trimtab and it steers easily.

You and I must get our thumbs on the trimtab of our lives. What effort and ease is most effective to steer our lives in the direction we'd like to go?

Do you know what you want? Do we as a people, a nation and a human race remember what we really want?

"The secret of business is to know what nobody else knows" - Aristotle Onassis

Laughlin Associates has spent the last 35 years making sure our clients are educated on the most up to date business strategies available. That is why we want our clients to have the first chance to reserve seats now for a new, live seminar "Wealth Accumulation and Protection Workshop" September 10-12, 2008.

We will be marketing this dynamic, powerful workshop to the public starting August 1, 2008. After that we cannot guarantee space. We are limiting the seating to 75 people so the speakers can spend one-on-one time with the attendees to develop a game-plan for success.

You owe it to yourself, your business and your financial future to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. Knowledge is power, and the right knowledge breeds success.

[Bill] Carroll also discovered a unique tool for their Macs to stay in touch with clients. Basecamp, a project management application by 37signals, lets coworkers and clients keep tabs on projects. “Clients can log into a secure site and see how things are going with their project,” says Carroll. “That used to take several phone calls or e-mails.” Clients can also upload financial data to Basecamp using bank-level encryption. “That’s very important to us because we’re constantly trading sensitive financial documents with our clients,” says Carroll.

“SaaS Capital is as different from a traditional lender as SaaS itself is from an on-premise solution,” said John Girard, chief executive officer of Clickability. “We have been amazed at the level of understanding the team at SaaS Capital has demonstrated regarding the unique characteristics and opportunities of the SaaS industry. They’ve even taught us a thing or two about our own business.”

Uncommon Sense

As you know common sense dictates that before you build a house you must have a foundation. Before you dig footers and lay the concrete, you must have a plan, and hire an architect to complete approved plans.

Building businesses, companies, organizations, management teams and websites are no different. As a frame of reference you may conceptualize your relationship with GBDS.US as your business/organizational/web architects and engineers.
