Song and Rants! Finally, the true expression we have all been waiting for.

Today ushers in a new era of freedom of speech. Now you may climb up on the musical soapbox and deliver your meaningful message to the masses without worry or fear of retaliation by dream crushing imperialist and other proponents of the norm. I declare my rights to battle any enemies of freedom with my music and lyrics. I shall deliver my SONG and RANTS to the oppressed and forgotten masses throughout the world. And we need you, too. Stay tuned, it's gonna be a wild ride.

RISE of the EBRANGELIST the Circuit Riding Sales Rep

You know the type. 
You can spot them a mile away.
In the din of noise, their voice raises above the crowd.

They command attention and they reverberate the message of their passion and their pride.
Like an evangelist they carry a prophetic vision of things to come. And things left behind.
They come from all faiths, all cultures and all political factions, but they rep the one true brand, theirs.
Welcome to the RISE of the EBRANGELIST.
What is their purpose? 

What is their plan?
Why do we despise them? Why do we love them?
Do they matter? Can we believe them? Are their rants the truth, or are they self serving?
So many questions. So many different answers.  

So what is an EBRANGELIST?
An EBRANGELIST is a person that believes in a higher power, the family, the brand and the products which the brand supplies.
They believe in the markets and the people that they serve. They believe in themselves and are confident that they are able to solve difficult problems with innovation and inspiration. They pump it up,
promote it , brag on it, swear by it, spotlight it, sing about it, defend it, dream about it and live by it.
Unlike a super hero, they have no super powers to rely on.
They have no magic dust to sprinkle. They are not hypnotist or mind controllers. They can not see the future.
They are everyday people who teach and listen to the congregation we call humanity.

An EBRANGELIST may seem over confident sometimes, and they may appear one sided, but they are clearly serving you by extolling the virtues, features and benefits of their brand.
At least in their heart and soul.
If you are, then tell us all about your brand.

It might be Fathers Day, but I still vote for mothers!

Fathers Day is almost here. It's nice to be recognized as being a dad.
Thank you, however I would rather give this day up for two Mothers days. Why? Because dads have one purpose most of the time, and mothers have more than one.
 You know what they are. Dad might bring home some bacon, but mom has to fry it, do most of the dishes and other cleaning after she has worked just as hard all day as dad. That's a good woman according to men.
I would be honored to be called a HARD WORKING MOTHER! 

Alas, I don't even compare to the description of my beloved wife and I owe her an apology and an explanation. I cannot keep up with her. 
She is a DYNAMOTHER. Not a dinosaur, but a power producing love machine that keeps the lights glowing and provides warmth and soothes with her coolness.
Me? I whine a lot and sit on my butt,in my favorite chair, watching meaningless tv and wondering how to save the world.
I've got it! (light bulb overhead)
I'll surrender my Fathers Day to Moms all over the world! World saved
Happy Mothers Day 2, to Donna and our mothers
 I'll try harder,

IP, and why I do it!

 When it comes to intellectual property, I admit, I am more of a dreamer than an intellect. An intellect relies on intelligence. A dreamer relies on creativity.
 An intellect works hard on the factual intelligence, the dreamer works on building and starting that intelligence on the dream they envision. The two need each other, like an architect and a builder, a writer and a publisher, and a chicken and an egg.
 Without each other there is nothing.
 For some reason the word Dreamer has lots of social stigma attached. It implies laziness, lack of focus, self indulgence, ego, and a host of other negative connotations. On the other hand a builder or architect is an admired individual who works hard and completes the task.
 Is there such a thing as a hybrid mix of the two? A dreamer/doer?
 Yes, and they are called entrepreneurs. Anyone can be one.
 If dreaming hurts your head, start doing. If doing hurts your body, start dreaming.
 If you ache all over, then start all over with exercises in mind, body and spirit. I do my daily exercise in my home where it's usually quiet. I clear my mind and then look around and ask myself what needs to be invented, improved, promoted, discarded, or saved.
 If it is an object, I give it a quick evaluation and make a decision as to where it will be moved. 
 If it is a concept , I will decide it's feasibility and file it for consideration and future development.  Sometimes I just see if it's been done before. If it has , I try to improve and embellish on it.
 Better mousetraps and wheels can always be reinvented. No telling what spins off, even if you get a little challenged. 
 Call your idea something and it will haunt you until you complete it.
 Worse case scenario, someone steals it and makes it better. That will make you inspirational and that is a very great accolade. 
 Make a name for yourself, then develop it .
   You are going places, and we are gon2.

Is Bill Gates gon2?

Hi Bill are you gon2? If not why?email me 4ntv@comcast.net.

Is Warren Buffett gon2?

Hi there, I'm looking for Warren Buffett. If you see him or have his phone number email me at 4ntv@comcast.net. Thanks, I lost his contact info.

Amazon could be more AMAZING.

What a great company! Jeff is the man! But I thought amazons were women.If they are then we know they are AMAZING. My wife is an amazon, who doesn't need a man, but still tolerates me. I love her and I'm very proud of her. She is the one who gets things done around here, and I owe her my life.
So, respect women as much as men. And if you have a problem with that email me at 4ntv@comcast.net! CYA soon!

Comcast could save lives with First Aid TV

Poor Comcast, things aren't going so great are they? You can fix it by being a better listener and by being a better servant. Before you get all upset and disconnect me, hear me out. High speed internet has become a matter of life and death. The advances in the medical
field due to technology have been made possible thanks to high speed access and the people who bring it to us. Yes, you are already saving lives and we thank you for that. Now, about the tv content and all those extra channels, can you help us save some more lives by maybe providing some first aid tv. If you need some content email me 4ntv@comcast.net. P.S. And could you send me Brian Roberts email? The real one. Thanks.

I don't work for Google, Google works for me!

We all want to work for a great company, and Google is one of my favorites. So is Amazon and Yahoo and Facebook and (you get the idea put your name here).
The best employer you can have is yourself.

Set your own hours,eat snacks,give yourself a raise,take a nap and on and on.
But, it can also be the worst job you ever had.Unsteady, low pay,no respect.

Ever been there?
I have and some times external forces make it impossible to make money and just fit in! Maybe we are trying too hard.
If you want to meet the hardest working people in the world look at an entrepreneur. They wish a week was 40 hours. They wish money grew on trees, and they wish someone would acknowledge them and their contribution to the world.
I'm still working on mine. Are you?

Together we are the hardest working people we know! Let's support each other!
This is our bottom line, have a wonderful life!

The Nashville Entrepreneur Center and music.

If you weren't at the CMA theater yesterday, you missed a defining moment in entertainment history. Project Music held its first music startup cohort showcasing eight remarkable companies tasked to save an industry from itself.  A noble effort was put forth by some of the most creative and dedicated individuals and teams focused on expanding the revenue base for all concerned. This was no small task and I'm sure that great fortune is in store for these amazing entrepreneurs. I would also thank the people, mentors, and sponsors who took interest and spent time supporting this project.
 I tip my hat and raise my glass to the brave souls willing to take on such a challenge and would encourage all of the rest of you to follow your dreams also.
Sometimes, we surrender to the status quo of normalcy, only to regret our lack of inspiration and fear of failure. Don't let that happen to you. You are super cool, creative, and worth your weight in gold. This world is nothing with out you. We need you.
When I tag my post with " You are going places, and we are gon2"

please be aware that you are mentioned first, for a reason.
Thanks for reading, see you soon.

For crying out loud!

Some of my friends say I really flipped out with my last post.
OK, I admit that Gon2 might not be ready to sell for  18 and a 1//2 million. At least not yet.
With your help, we can double that.
Become a world broker in a broken world.
You have the power to tell the truth about where to go and who to  see.
 If there is a way to get 100 honest opinions on 500 destinations, we can use this info to rank the destination. There may be a margin of error, but basically we will have a general consensus. I don't know about you,but I seem to lean towards the majority.
I like at least a 75% answer, for non critical applications, but for safety issues I like the 99.9 truth.
Let me ask you,what % do you trust?
50,000 opinions on any thing (but, politics and religion) is a sizable and valuable collection of data. Data that will be consumed by the seekers of big data.
Big Data grows exponentially, it rises and falls, and changes with trends and times. You can trust it at least 50% of the time.
Digital life is won or zero.
Thanks, for reading!

Is gon2 really worth 18 million?

I recently did an appraisal on the gon2.com domain name and was surprised to find out that someone out there thought it was worth 18,630,835.00.Check it out here.
 I know what you're gonna say. LOL selling it! But even if the next quote was a penny, I'd still have an average of over nine million in net worth. 
Like you ,I'd like to know how these values are calculated and what factors determine the valuation.
 Let's get real.
 If you had a direct connection to every country in the world and helped them develop their tourism and economy,what would the value be? 
The value  of the world in US dollars is aprox. 250 Trillion. If a you earned one tenth of 1 percent to this value the amount would be 25 billion. How would you like a piece of that pie?
 Then do something for your world.
This is a forward looking statement, because we're moving forward.
You are going places, We are gon2!

Happy Spring!

I hope 2015 is your year to realize how amazing your life really is. 
Even if we don't know each other on a first name basis, we both have a lot in common. I want to hear from you this year and encourage you to start or refresh a blog that will bring you closer to your destination or goal.

 Starting a blog, or an open diary, sounds like a lot of work and commitment. And it can be daunting. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and then we feel powerless. Doubt enters our minds and we might feel inadequate and insignificant.
 Who will read my blog?
 What do I bring to the worlds table?
 Who cares about my opinions, dreams, or skills and talents?
It really doesn't matter, at least you're able to be yourself and have people like you to relate with.

I know how brilliant you are. I also know that you have many admirers and they need your infinite "wisdom of the world", (updated frequently) or they will just pine away into a lonely abyss.

Sorry, I didn't mean to get dismal at a time when we need joy and  faith in humanity.Now is the time to" reflect and project" our positive principles for the future of us all.

 Thank you for all you do for us, we humbly await your next expression.

 You are going places, we are gon2.

Does Branding Really Hurt?

"I'm good with faces, it's the names I can't remember!"
Have you ever made this statement? I must admit, I have, and I'm not gonna lie and get myself in more trouble trying to explain away my human limitations. Why do we recognize faces but suffer from brain lag when it comes to peoples names? Can you remember the name of the girl with the dragon tattoo, or do you just remember her tattoo? Her name was Harriet. Ok, I cheated and looked it up on wikipedia. I have often heard of secret societies that match names and personalities with cryptic mental imaging of the third kind. What would we have to sell to acquire such super powers?
Perhaps we just need to reinvent the name tag. Problem solved, don't leave home without one.

Where is gon2 going?

I get this question all the time and the answer is always changing. Depending on what we are working on determines our destination. We really like a lot of geographical points of travel, but often we explore concepts and ideas that may or may not have an earthly boundary. We are in pursuit of answers so we start from here and go to the source. We don't lead you there, or try to get you there, you lead and we follow you.
Why? Because you are going places, and we are gon2. If you are looking for a random place to go or want to check out some new destination for information here are some links:
 For the music industry try MucycleMusicPedaler or maybe Prosedit. There are also places like Songvey and the Pitchinsink.
If all these links give you a headache try N2dr where you can find a cure.
Not getting enough fiber? click on WhyFiber.
Oh, you want to travel? How about China at N2CN.
Gon2 is growing every day. Just like you. If we can imagine it, we will share it, with you and our world. Thanks for your comments and support. Come back soon.

You are going places and we are gon2.

Welcome to my humble blog. I needed a catch all and contact sheet for my projects. Gon2 is a crazy dream and without you we are nothing. I don't usually experiment on humans, but I'm fresh out of monkeys and guinea pigs. The first thing I want to do is introduce myself. I'm Bill Read, and I have a medical condition known as Spontaina Domainia. When I see things I develop domain names for them. I know it sounds weird but I truly believe and accept my debilitation. Please send your support so together we can treat this condition and live happily ever after. Thank you, Bill
