Motilium For Sale

February 3rd, 2014 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


Motilium For Sale, Every Alaska Native corporation (ANC) and many Tribal businesses started a company without having a business.

Businesses are usually created because a product or service provides value and attracts paying customers. Behind the product/service is an extremely talented individual or group which brings the product/service into existence. Regardless of available talent, 50mg Motilium, Native enterprises first created a business then searched for a product or service. This is business development in reverse.

I currently serve on two Native enterprise boards, one is an Alaska Native village corporation board and the other is a Tribal enterprise board, Motilium For Sale. Motilium uk, There are major differences between the two business entities with the major one being land ownership. The ANC has land and the Alaska Tribal business does not. However, both entities seek to start and grow new businesses for the benefit of their tribal members and shareholders, 30mg Motilium. Many village ANCs and Tribal businesses attempt this with little to no capital. Motilium For Sale, However, there is somehow still an assumption by some tribal member/shareholders that starting a business is easy and creating profit is a forgone conclusion, based purely on the idea of having started a business. This group sees failure in business as unacceptable. Motilium paypal, There is also an assumption these business entities should be profitable because other similar ANCs and Tribes are profitable, that somehow all Native entities have access to the same resources and talents. Of course, these assumptions are false, Motilium craiglist. Not all ANCs and Tribes are created equal. This group measures the success of their corporations by how well it compares to the most successful Native corporations, Motilium For Sale.

Creating a profitable Native enterprise from nothing is extremely difficult and very rare. 1000mg Motilium,

If it’s so hard to start a Native business then why are some Alaska Native Corporations so successful?


The top 20 Alaska Native Corporations create a misleading picture of the Alaska Native corporation community. It’s true, the top ten percent of the ANC community is financially successful. However, 250mg Motilium, if one looks a little deeper at the top performing ANCs, we can see a majority of their start-up businesses did not begin from “nothing” and can actually be placed into two major categories; Natural resources and government contracting.

ANC-regionals Motilium For Sale, ANC businesses outside of these two categories are most often the result of acquisition as opposed to internal start-up . 20mg Motilium, I’ll admit it can be confusing as ANCs are large holding companies diversified with many operations, real estate holdings and stock portfolios. They are quasi-private entities with limited information available to the public and therefore a mystery to many.

Natural Resource Businesses


Natural Resource businesses are geography based, Motilium coupon. Either you have the good fortune to have valuable resources located on your land or you do not. The companies that create revenue from these resources have not created new value… they are simply exchanging value or selling assets, Motilium For Sale. In many cases, Motilium us, a natural resource business is not self-sustaining.

The top ANCs were built on natural resource businesses and continue to prosper from their land holdings. ASRC’s initial primary revenue came from oil and gas leases. In 2012, 500mg Motilium, Nana’s Red Dog Mine produced 170 million in net proceeds for NANA prior to sharing through 7(i). Motilium For Sale, The Native corporations in Southeast Alaska are blessed with rich timberland. Every Native corporation in Southeast Alaska engaged in logging their land. 750mg Motilium, Each created a new business to perform this activity but now, thirty years later, only a couple remain. No new products or services were created, Motilium japan. No unique talent was needed. Board and management did not create anything new for the world, they just sold what was already there before they arrived, Motilium For Sale. They transferred the wealth in the trees into dollars for company bank accounts. 100mg Motilium, Once the trees were gone, the timber businesses closed.

Government Contracting


Alaska Native corporations and Tribal business can receive preferences when contracting with the U.S. government, 150mg Motilium. Motilium For Sale, Dozens of ANCs have filled their holding companies with a plethora of SBA 8(a) businesses. This program has provided ANCs with a real advantage and has allowed them to prosper as government contractors. As of 2009, Motilium mexico, about half of all ANC revenue came directly from doing business with the U.S. government.

Every Native corporation listed on the “Top 49ers” list derives revenue through government contracting. Government contracting accounts for a majority of the earnings for many of these successful companies,, Motilium For Sale. In 2012, Motilium ebay, revenue from government contracting made up 84% of KTC’s (The Kuskokwim corporation) revenue. This was a decrease from 2011 when 95 percent of their revenue came from government contracting. Motilium india,

ANC Opportunities


Should ANCs continue in government contracting and natural resource development. Yes, of course. Motilium For Sale, They would be foolish to not take advantage of every opportunity available. The revenues gained provide benefits to Alaska natives that are greatly needed, 40mg Motilium. In fact, without these successful businesses Alaska Natives would be in dire straits. 200mg Motilium, These businesses provide the ability to sustain native culture, language and ways of life on the brink of being lost.

I am proud of my Brothers and Sisters who have created this prosperity. However, I would like them to look ahead and take a second look at today’s situation, Motilium For Sale. What happens when the natural resources are depleted and the government preferences go away, 10mg Motilium. What about the rest of the Alaska native village corporations… the ones with their incorporation papers but no business. The ones surviving on 7(i) payments or the ones not surviving at all. Motilium australia, They don’t have the good fortune to be near natural resource wealth and to have the wherewithal to start federal contracting businesses.

Starting from Nothing is very difficult

Motilium For Sale, Today, I am a director on two boards that ask the same questions. How can we make much needed revenue for our tribal members / shareholders. What businesses can we start. Are our only choices natural resource development and government contracting, Motilium canada.

The first step in starting a business outside the two main categories and with no money is to acknowledge it will be extremely difficult. With this understanding comes the acceptance that some attempts may come up short and fail, Motilium For Sale. Failing in Indian Country is a death sentence. Motilium overseas, This is a serious topic I will address later in another paper.

The next step would be to truly understand the fact that successful start-ups are only created by talented individuals. I believe in acquiring talent from wherever you can find it. Motilium For Sale, I also believe in Native businesses growing their own talent. Both methods work and are needed, Motilium usa. What’s important to understand is no business operates successfully for very long without talented individuals. In regard to these “talented” individuals, it’s more important to have the “right” individuals as opposed to business minds with high IQs.

ANCs and Tribes value education. Many ANCs have successful scholarship and intern programs, Motilium For Sale. We are now seeing the dividends of those programs paying off with the return of Alaska Natives with PhDs, JDs, MBAs and diverse work experiences returning home to work for ANCs and Tribes. Unfortunately, much of this talent is attracted to the Regional corporations and large village corporations and tribes instead of the small village ANCs and tribes.

The future of the Native enterprise


The Native talent pool is growing and eventually talent that only went to large Native enterprises will spill over to fill all positions; even in the smaller Native businesses. New Native leaders are emerging and are bringing with them new ideas of what a Native enterprise should be in the 21st century. Motilium For Sale, These Native institutions may lack a "what" and "how" for their business but have an incredibly powerful "why". It's this understanding of "why" they are in business that has brought them this far and will propel them into the future.

My wish for ANCs and Tribes is to grow talent from within, exploit unique strengths, provide tremendous value and to build enduring global brands that align with their Native values. However, let us first agree that it will be challenging and that we may stumble and fall because creating a successful new business is very hard.

No RX Clonidine

March 28th, 2010 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


ShareholdersWS

No RX Clonidine, I attended one of Senator Murkowski’s community meetings on the “Southeast Alaska Native Land Entitlement Finalization Act” in person and listened to several more online.  I’ve also read many of the letters to the editor in the Juneau Empire.  I’ve noticed an alarming trend in those who speak in opposition to the Haa Aaní Bill. 20mg Clonidine, One gentleman from Edna Bay wrote an “OPEN MESSAGE TO SEALASKA CORPORATE EXECUTIVES” and several other comments in the Juneau Empire where he espoused a continuous chant of “corporate greed” in relation to Sealaska.

I am not a corporate executive, Clonidine craiglist, Clonidine usa, but as a tribal member of Sealaska, I can no longer stand by while people like him take advantage of the anti-corporation sentiment of the day to denigrate Alaska Natives, Clonidine canada, 150mg Clonidine, simply because of their congress-mandated designation.

Sealaska is not owned by a single founder… not a group of investors and not by a wealthy family.  Sealaska is owned equally by more than 20, Clonidine overseas, Clonidine paypal, 000 Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshians.  There are no stock sales, Clonidine ebay, 10mg Clonidine, stock options, or “get rich” exit strategies.  Sealaska will not be sold or bought or taken over by another corporation.  We are a Native Institution with the unique responsibility of combining business goals with Native values, Clonidine india. Clonidine us, The differences between Alaska Native corporations and other American corporations are dramatic and profound. It is clear to anyone who looks at the original content of ANCSA that it was designed to assimilate Alaska Natives into the mainstream of American capitalism.  However, dozens of amendments have been made since then, such as the “1991 Amendments”, which dramatically changed the Act by continuing the restrictions on the sale of stock and allowing shares to be gifted to descendants.  Alaska Natives prompted these changes to ANCSA, which continue to this day, as Alaska Natives define their relationship with their Native corporations based on their Native values and heritage, No RX Clonidine.

Recently, Clonidine uk, 500mg Clonidine, Sealaska members voted to do the most “anti” for-profit corporation act imaginable.  They decided to devalue their stock and therefore all future dividends by inviting young people to enroll in the corporation.  This is proof positive that sharing with the next generation is far more important than any individual’s dividends.  This act of sharing is at the heart of Native people who understand we are all related and at times we will need each other as we move through life.

Perhaps the single fact that most deflates these negative comments is that 70 percent of the revenues from Sealaska timber harvesting is not even kept by Sealaska, 750mg Clonidine, 30mg Clonidine, but shared with the entire Alaska Native population through the Section 7(i) provision in ANCSA.  These funds are vital lifelines for many struggling village corporations throughout Alaska, including several located right here in Southeast Alaska.  Our trees aid other indigenous people in Alaska, 250mg Clonidine, 40mg Clonidine, many of whom are less fortunate and are grateful for anything to make it through this challenging economy.

The profits from timber which Sealaska retains go right to the core of Sealaska – our culture, Clonidine mexico, Clonidine coupon, language, heritage and our future generations.  Sealaska has spent tens of millions of dollars giving young people a fighting chance in life through education, 1000mg Clonidine, 50mg Clonidine, myself included.  Our spruce and hemlock put me through college and I do not take this lightly.  The generosity of the scholarships extends to not only tribal member shareholders, but their descendants as well, 200mg Clonidine. Clonidine australia, Sealaska created the Sealaska Heritage Institute, the driving force behind saving our endangered languages.  Tlingit, 100mg Clonidine, Clonidine japan, a language that once echoed through our majestic forests, may be extinct in my lifetime.  Environmentalists talk about biodiversity, but what about cultural diversity and language diversity?  I’m not asking environmental groups to fund language programs, but when they prevent us from funding these ourselves by harvesting our trees – this is what they are stopping.

The unjust labeling of Sealaska Corporation as greedy is insulting.  I welcome discussion based on the merits of the legislation, but disparaging remarks about a group of people who have endured the worst of our country’s past behavior is neither welcome nor productive.  The gentleman from Edna Bay, and others who share his view, owe the hard-working people in the Sealaska family and all of our tribal member shareholders an apology.

We lost one of our last remaining fluent speakers of Haida on October 29, 2009.  Woodrow Wilson Morrison, Sr. was born February 3, Hydrochlorothiazide overseas, 50mg Hydrochlorothiazide, 1913 in Hydaburg, Alaska; he was 96 years old.  According to haidalanguage.com there's no more than 2 or 3 dozen speakers left in the world.  I've heard the number in Alaska is around 10, Hydrochlorothiazide uk. 250mg Hydrochlorothiazide, As a producer for "Northwest Indian News", I was working on doing a story on Ben Young (Kiisxaat), 500mg Hydrochlorothiazide, 1000mg Hydrochlorothiazide, the great nephew of Woodrow Morrison.  Ben has committed himself to learning the Haida language.  He lived in Hydaburg and was studying closely with Woodrow and his grandfather Claude Morrison.  The Television show "Northwest Indian News" has since lost its funding and I never did get a chance to do the story.  Currently, Ben and his wife live in Fairbanks while attending University of Alaska, Hydrochlorothiazide craiglist, Hydrochlorothiazide ebay, Fairbanks.

Deltasone For Sale

October 28th, 2009 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


The forum entitled "Showcasing Solutions: Strengthening Alaska's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Deltasone For Sale, " occured Thursday, October 29, 2009 in Anchorage. Deltasone coupon, The invitation letter to the conference began with  “Alaska has a long tradition of innovation. Articulating new and better ways of doing things is part of the Alaska vision...” - I hear that said all the time about Alaska and it’s not true, Deltasone japan. 10mg Deltasone, I know these statements are referencing the history of Indigenous people's ability to survive and prosper in a challengeing environment but what about today.  Is there entrepreneurship happening in Alaska?  According to an Alaska Dispatch article written by Joshua Saul, the answer is "No", Deltasone craiglist. Deltasone paypal, According to Chancellor Fran Ulmer in the "State of the State" presentation given recently in New York, 35% of Alaska’s economy is Government spending.  Where is the innovation in that sector?  The forum's vision of creating “business incubators, 250mg Deltasone, Deltasone uk, business accelerators and cluster knowledge centers around the state” can not be sustained with only the publicly-funded entities leading the way.

Below you will find a video of a Native American success story - The Tanka Bar.  This is the first product of "Native American Natural Foods".  The story is inspirational for rural Alaska communities - for those folks who dream of selling salmon jerky and other products to the world.  However, the Tanka Bar factory, although remote, is still located on a road system connected to millions of customers.  The age-old Alaska problem of  "cost of goods to market" comes into play in venture like this occuring in rural Alaska.  My question is: “Are there any examples of how someone has taken the disadvantages/weakness associated with entrepreneurship in Alaska and turned them on their head, Deltasone For Sale. Can remote location/distance from market be an advantage?”, Deltasone usa. 30mg Deltasone,   What is the advantage of having a small population or a cold climate.

Perhaps through recent applications in new technology, Deltasone mexico, 50mg Deltasone, Alaska can become more than a subsidized state exporting natural resources.

Buy Zyprexa Over The Counter

August 24th, 2009 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


alaskadispatchcomThe "Alaska Ear" reports the following:


Buy Zyprexa Over The Counter, NEW GAME . , Zyprexa coupon. Zyprexa ebay, . Earwigs report Alice Rogoff, 500mg Zyprexa, 750mg Zyprexa, an Outside zillionaire with an interest in Alaska Native art, has bought Alaska Dispatch, Zyprexa japan, 100mg Zyprexa, the news Website started last year by Tony Hopfinger and Amanda Coyne. (www.alaskadispatch.com).


Rogoff, Zyprexa canada, 20mg Zyprexa, who is being called co-owner, will be the publisher while Tony remains editor.


Now in the process of expanding, Zyprexa overseas, 10mg Zyprexa, Dispatch has hired Channel 2 reporter/anchor Jill Burke -- maybe the best TV reporter in town; Maia Nolan, one of Ear's favorite local bloggers; and News-Miner reporter Rena Delbridge.

It adds up to a promise of good content, 50mg Zyprexa, Zyprexa craiglist, but the eternal question remains: Will they be able to make enough money to survive when the Rogoff cash dries up?alice_rogoff

Where Can I Buy Flovent

August 22nd, 2009 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


juneau_empire_pic Where Can I Buy Flovent, August, 18, 2009, the editor of NativeCo.com, Morgan Howard sent a letter to the editor in response to a previous letter published.


This letter is in response to a “Letter to the editor” (August 11, 40mg Flovent, 500mg Flovent, 2009) by Gretchen Goldstein.



The author states, “Living in harmony with nature is not compatible with clear-cut logging” and “Unfortunately, Flovent australia, 200mg Flovent, the way they (Sealaska) make money often overrides their Native culture’s traditional values.”



Please do not insult Native people by simplifying our world into the black and white world of disaffected environmentalists. Why do anti-logging proponents think they feel the negative effects of logging more than Natives just because we’re the ones doing the logging, Flovent craiglist. 1000mg Flovent, This assumption is a failure to understand the plight of Indigenous people.



No one understands the paradox of respecting the natural world and natural resource development better than us. We’ve been the stewards of our land for more than 10, Flovent mexico, Flovent japan, 000 years… we understand the concept of balancing our present day needs with unforeseen future obligations.



I am a shareholder of three southeast Native corporations – all three have practiced clear-cutting. I understand the realities my corporations faced and know that our leaders have never taken land stewardship lightly, Where Can I Buy Flovent. As a videographer, Flovent usa, 150mg Flovent, I have personally seen the healthy second growth forest near the “small communities of Prince of Wales Island”. I have seen Sealaska’s silviculture practices first hand, 20mg Flovent, 250mg Flovent, from tree planting to stream studies. Sealaska is a leading expert in forestry management in temperate rainforests.



Clear-cutting has such strong negative connotations that few take the time to learn about the practice, Flovent us. Flovent paypal, I suggest reading the front-page article last week in the Seattle Times entitled, “New strategy to save forests: logging”.



In fact, Flovent canada, 50mg Flovent, I embrace our history of “clear-cutting”. Where Can I Buy Flovent,  Clear-cutting has saved us. Our trees have allowed us to be respected and relevant stakeholders in our own country, Flovent coupon. Flovent overseas, The foundations of southeast Native corporations are built on the revenue from clear-cutting.



The timber business has provided enormous positive contributions to the Native community. Sealaska’s timber revenue funded the creation of the “Sealaska Heritage Institute” (SHI), Flovent india. Flovent ebay, SHI is the primary driving force behind saving our endangered indigenous languages.



I understand some believe that no amount of human benefit justifies the commercial harvesting of trees. I disagree, Where Can I Buy Flovent. Some contributions such as language and culture are so vital to our existence, 100mg Flovent, 750mg Flovent, that their loss would be devastating. Trees grow back, 10mg Flovent, 30mg Flovent, but once we lose our language and culture, they may be gone forever.



We lost the Eyak language last year, Flovent uk. We only have a handful of Haida speakers left. Tlingit, a language that once dominated southeast Alaska may be gone in my lifetime. Time is running out.



Where Can I Buy Flovent, The late Frederica DeLaguna said to me, “Without language a culture will die... It will be like what Roman culture is to us today”.  If we can somehow save our languages, our culture stands a chance to survive.



Environmentalists talk about the importance of “biodiversity”, but what about “cultural diversity” and “language diversity”. Our Hemlock and Spruce may help us save our language and culture. Generations from now, our descendants will thank us for cutting our trees.



Ironically, we had to sacrifice our language to become citizens and vote... And now we’ve had to cut our trees to save our language.


These issues are complex and like many times in our history have made for tough decisions. It is our “Native Culture’s traditional values” that provides the ability to adapt and persevere through the rising tides of change.

Buy Strattera Over The Counter

July 10th, 2009 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


Buy Strattera Over The Counter, For more than ten thousand years, Alaska Natives owned vast expanses of land from which they prospered.  Incrementally taken from them for over two centuries, they would have to fight to gain back the land.  At the turn of the twentieth century, Alaska’s indigenous people formed political organizations, learned Western law, and used the U.S. legal system to fight for their Native lands.   The diverse Alaska Native cultures joined forces and fought to finally receive some of their Natives lands back from the United States Government.  The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) passed and started the boldest socioeconomic experiment ever attempted in the history of the United States, Strattera australia. 40mg Strattera,

NATIVECO.COM is the continuation of this story – and the outcome – of that extraordinary fight.
