Five Essential Building Blocks for a Thriving Work Culture

It's All Premised on Having the Right Players, Says 'Coolest Young Entrepreneur'

What makes a successful business thrive? That's what eight out of 10 new entrepreneurs would like to know, because their businesses fail within the first 18 months, according to Bloomberg.

Adam Witty has managed to turn plenty of heads in the business community as founder and CEO of Advantage Media Group, (http://advantagefamily.com/), an international publisher of business, self-improvement, and professional development books and online learning.

Witty, who was selected for INC Magazine's 30 Under 30 list of "America's coolest young entrepreneurs" in 2011, says creating the right environment is crucial for success. The magazine also featured his company in their top 500|5000 list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in America for 2012 and 2013, when the company ranked No. 42 in Media and No. 36 for Top 100 South Carolina Companies.



Rep. Judy Chu Works to Connect Small Businesses to Foreign Markets

Ontario, CA – Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) joined with Reps. Gloria Negrete McLeod (CA-35) and Mark Takano (CA-41), and the Export-Import Bank to host the Small Business Global Access Forum. The purpose of the event was to provide resources to Southern California businesses to enter overseas markets. As Ranking Member of the Small Business Committee's Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access Subcommittee, Rep. Chu released the following statement:

"Foreign markets can serve as an important tool to boost sales for small businesses, especially as our economy is recovering. But businesses cannot just open new markets overnight. Workshops like this – and support from the Export-Import Bank – can help California's business owners acquire the tools and resources they need to understand challenges like export regulations and tap into new markets," said Rep. Chu. "Tapping into these markets and shipping American-made products overseas create more jobs, especially good manufacturing jobs, here at home."
