November is the month of Thanksgiving and the day itself comes around. As an entrepreneur and as a human being it is my favorite holiday of the year–by far. It is, of course, a refreshing pause from daily business tsuris, as well as the only holiday devoted to pure gratitude for… everything — all our abundance and our very existence.

But it is also a reminder that thankfulness is a key to business health. I’ve always believed it is the simple things that make for success in business. Not the brilliant, not the celebrated, not the strategically complex. One of those simple things is the act of saying “Thank you”. I always take time to say it, to mean it, to write it, to email it, even to tweet it. As I would like to put it “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

I genuinely am grateful, for all those who are supportive of making every step coming closer to success, particularly to those smart hard-working team members who make the difference, for their care in making my time efficient and specific. No matter how busy my day, how far or close I maybe be, I like to express my gratitude for their effort.

. It doesn’t just acknowledge someone’s effort, kindness, intent, or action. It recognizes the person himself. It’s even more important than acknowledging the principal person you are doing business with because it sets a tone for discussion.

I am thankful for the opportunity to thank you all my dearest love my children, my family, my friends, my team and all others close and far away. Happy Thanksgiving!

Every year I look back on the biggest challenges that life brings us but also looking at the greatest opportunities what came to us with thanks. Life never hands out things that you can’t handle. How you approach it will determine how you come through the other side. You can assume the victim role and feel sorry for yourself, or you can reach into the essence of who you are and find your inner strength. Then demand the self-worth and ability to rise up and meet your challenges heart on. You need to believe you can do this — you are powerful, you are amazing and you are inspirational!

Today we are giving thanks to all who have been supportive and kept us going from darkness to the ultimate light. From unconnected to be connected. This is just another year I praise to be surrounded by my beloved ones, my advisors and supporters, my team of smart developers and engineers and all those appreciated connections from around the world. Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for your continued support @Kumbaya

Women in particular struggle to get funding. They face huge barriers despite a wealth of evidence that has shown that investing in women has a transformative impact on their whole community: Income in the hands of a mother influences child’s health that’s almost 20 times greater than when controlled by a father – United Nations Development Program study

logoThanksgiving is a special day to celebrate families and friends we care & cherish. In most of the western world, we are as blessed as we are spoiled, I know I am. Like most of us, we get flustered ov
er the silliest things – like when my cellphone doesn’t get a good signal, when a flight is delayed or when my computer takes too long to load a website. Millions & billions of people in the world do not have the luxury of mobile phones, cannot afford air travel and do not have computers. Today, we have billions of people with no or little electricity, clean water, health care or basic education.

So how can we avoid this virus of selfish immaturity? Thankfulness is the antidote. It melts our pride and crushes our sense of entitlement.

We at Powerstorm ESS have developed electrification technologies that are affordable and sustainable for the emerging markets. We can help to improve the lives of those in most desperate need and will have tremendous impact to their wellness and our future. Let’s work together to get them the much needed Electrification.

Communicate in proverMen and women communicate differently.  That is no secret.   In order for women in developing countries to learn to share power with men, and thereby become more effective in promoting food security, rural development, and contribute to other societal advancement, we must become critically aware of gender-sensitive communication. These are vital building blocks that will have an impact on generations to come.

Poverty has a different definition in the emerging world than it does in developed nations.  The term ‘poverty’ is used broadly in the emerging world to include lack of material resources, minimal or no access to healthcare, limited access to education and information, deprivation of civil rights, minimal — if any — access to economic growth opportunity, professional training and access to capital. In broad strokes, alleviation of proverty would mean betterment of any of these challenges, although measurement of improvement is difficult to measure.  Change takes time.  A fast track to addressing poverty at all of its levels is access to information.  Access to mobile communication is the difference between abject poverty and hope.

This hope will quickly turn into action as newly empowered communities will have access to information beyond the traditional media of television, radio and telephone, which are now all accessible via Internet.  Great personal evolution and economic growth will result when previously isolated communities reach out to the rest of the world.  Likely, their shortcut to commerce come through embracing digital currencies over cumbersome microfinance instruments.

At Powerstorm Capital Corp., we see a future on the near horizon where our hybrid power solutions will greatly contribute to establishment of thriving communities throughout the emerging world.
