(The) Donald Trump is an excellent example of American
entrepreneurism in its most colorful form. Synonymous
with New York real estate, beautiful women, bad
hair, 90-story ego, distaste for dishonesty, and
a clear killer-instinct in the business world, Trump
also knows how to use people to make money for him.
hired, the apprentice walked in an entrepreneur
and walked away a winner
by April Y. Pennington
After 13 riveting weeks, Donald Trump made his final
decision and chose entrepreneur Bill Rancic as "The
Apprentice" Rancic, 33, who nine years ago
started Cigars Around the World.com, an online purveyor
of premium cigars (which he sold in 2003), has also
run real estate development company Rancic Properties
for the past three years. Now he will oversee construction
of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in
Chicago. I caught up with Rancic only days after
the announcement to learn more about his thrilling
4 of 5 - How Pipe Dreams Can Become Realities!
by Jon Kogan
Many people want money as a primary goal. And there
certainly is nothing wrong with desiring money.
But first, be sure that your true goal is money.
Can you live, breathe, eat, and sleep money? Do
you dream about money, and want it more than anything?

Women rock! This year has seen some noted achievements
for the sisterhood this year. For starters, there
are more women millionaires and billionaires, moving
and shaking, thanks to Oprah and J.K. Rawling. Speaking
of Oprah, she is making fifty look "fabulous"
and an age to look forward to. The film world finally
got it together an nominated a woman for best director.
It is fitting that the woman should be Frances Ford
Coppola's daughter, Sophia Coppola.
Ways to Support Another Woman
by Yolanda Shoshana
Every Thursday, I have been glued to the hit television
show, 'The Apprentice". It is drama at it's
finest, except there is something that is painful
for me to watch as a woman. When the show began
the women dominated and worked together as a team.
As time progressed the women slowly but quickly
began to rip each other apart and then... there
were none, leaving two men standing for the high
profile position to work for Donald Trump. The "catfights"
between the women have continued and are clearly
evident as they make media rounds. Meanwhile, Kwame
and Troy had a small show down only to be followed
with words of loyalty and strong hugs and handshakes.
When will women learn to stick together through
the good, bad, and the ugly?
A Lesson From
The Apprentice That Can Make You A Master
I have to admit, I was curious. When I saw previews
of a new show called The Apprentice,
it made me want to at least watch the premiere to
see what was going on. Immediately, I was hooked.
The whole idea of candidates - from all walks of
life, not just college grads fresh from their commencement
ceremonies - vying for a position in one of Donald
Trumps organizations piqued my interest.

The Apprentice Bad For Your Health
by Angie Dixon
If you know who I mean when I say Kwame, Bill and
Troy, youre probably a fan of The Apprentice.
I admit Im not a fan myself; I dont
watch much television and that particular show didnt
grab my interest enough to be appointment
watching. I have, however, followed its popularity
with interest, for various reasons.

If you are already in business it is hardly likely
that you will agree with my title. Aren't all businsesses
different? When you think in broader terms, yes,
of course you're right. I want you, however, to
look , for the moment, only at the basics. All businesses
are about turnover, profit margins and overheads.
Basically that is all there is to it. All three
must come together in perfect harmony for a business

Staying Sane While Wall
by David Leonhardt a.k.a. The Happy Guy
Everybody is riding the Wall Street Roller coaster.
Even if you are not invested, the headlines scream
out one word: PANIC! It's hard not to join in the
panicking. The Panic Crowd seems to be having all
the fun these days. But they don't have all the
happiness. You see, it's true what your mother told
you: money doesn't buy happiness, at least not for
most people. But the lack of money does buy pure
to Accelerate Success

show, The Apprentice, Donald Trump would give the
ultimate winner the dream job of working for him,
running one of his divisions and earning 0,000 per
year. On the final episode, the choice came down
to two candidates, Bill Rancic and Kwame Jackson,
for the ultimate job.
