ODAAT overtaking 5 year plans in Texas:

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

 Happy birthday, Ben Franklin! Born this day in 1706, when he was 21 years old he started meeting with a group of his friends once a week for the purpose of mutual improvement. They meet for over 30 years, and Franklin, who had very little formal education, called it "the best school."

Our Small Business Chamber of Commerce, Inc, which was formed with the purpose of helping local chambers of commerce, service clubs, and others to form groups similar to Franklin's original Junto, is now listed in the Wikipedia "Junto (Clubs)" article. See the link to it I just posted on our Facebook Page, http://Facebook.com/Small.Business.Chamber, and while you are there please "Like" the page (if you haven't already) and "Share" the Page with your Facebook friends as a way to help celebrate Ben's 306th! (If you'd like a print of our Small Business Chamber, Inc logo, the portrait of Ben Franklin you see here, contact the artist via the link on our website, www.SmallBizChamber.org.)
