What's you background?
background is sporadic at best. Most of what I
have done includes at least one of the following:
Real estate, Business Development, Marketing Strategies,
and Philanthropy, but everything has been driven
of my favorite business strategies is to find
a building I can buy for $.40 on the $1.00 roughly
10,000 square feet, start a business in it that
supports the community of a 3 mile radius. Once
I get the business operating at a profit, I sell
it and keep the property to become landlord. (Don't
tell anyone my game!)
I am a typical Entrepreneur.

COMMUNITY PROJECT: ENTREPRENEURS is much more
than a Reality Show. It is an unprecedented year
long "project" that allows us to partner
with the University system in a creative effort
that provides students and professionals with
a real life business experience that will prepare
them for post school opportunities and/or assist
them with their entrepreneurial goals. Aside from
creating a "working" Business, the contestants
will also experience the importance of philanthropy
and community service, by initiating campaigns
that will enable "The Company" to raise
up to $250 Million for charities , Nationwide
in 2005. Televising the project allows us to reach
past our goal of leadership development and preparation
for future endeavors, and allows us to assist
organizations such as the Kauffman Foundation
and other entrepreneurial development programs
in the promotion and awareness of the opportunities
available to individuals at their Universities
and in the public and private sectors. Part of
this project will involve the incorporation of
a company entitled READY (Real Entrepreneurial
Applications & Development for Youth).
Contestants will create and operate an International
Business. They will participate in various projects,
ranging from idea to operation. Each project will
contribute "in real life" to the overall
functionality of the company (TBA). Group dynamics
will continue to change until the final 16 contestants
have been chosen. Eliminations will be determined
by excusing the least productive contestants and
the group dynamic will continue to change until
there is one contestant remaining. A well-known
Host, various twists, conflicts, group mergers,
challenges, (local millionaires, Business Executives,
and celebrity guest), the elimination process,
the "Real Time" creation of an International
business, and the GRAND PRIZE CHOICE will draw
in a variety of viewer demographics and hopeful
participants for the next season.
Live Auditions were held at Jillian's, Raleigh
NC USA July 17, 2004. Afterwards, hopeful participants
registered online through August 13, at entrepreneurs'
website, www.realseriousbusiness.com . Potential
participants sent in a resume, a business or academic
recommendation, and a 3-5 video illustrating why
they would be a good "Entrepreneur".
The first couple of tasks resulted in reducing
the contestants to (7) teams of (10). The next
task will require each team to consolidate to
(2) teams of (8).
The "Final (16)" will compete and be
given the chance to politic, strategize, and prove
their worth to be the "last one standing".
[Most filming will be done with these (16)]. These
finalists, no matter when they are eliminated,
will continue to participate in the group challenges
and functions of the company. One of these individuals
will have the opportunity to re-enter the contest
via a "wildcard" vote.
The "Winner" will have the choice of:
1) owning their own business, $75,000.00 operating
capital, company automobile, and a corporate condominium
or 2) $50,000.00 CASH. Group perks are awarded
for the team that best completes the "Challenges".
& OUTSOURCES: The CEO, Business Consultants,
and the Entertainment Expert, will assist with
the challenges and appear in each episode. The
other service providers, who are actual agents
of the company, will have special appearances
throughout the series.

did you think up such an ingenious idea?
was part of the getting it done mentality. "Entrepreneurs"
is the product of a Business I have been working
on for approximately 5 years, Eventsleader www.EventsLeader.com
short version is: It was going to take a minimum
of $30 Million (US Dollars) to get EventsLeader
started. By being creative, and using some unconventional
resources and ideas I discovered a way to launch
the company by way of a Reality Show and only
spending $2 Million (US Dollars). It sounded like
a FUN idea so I'm off and running with it. Who
new the show itself would be so popular?
is a strong team of people so important?
is achieved by teams not individuals, and anything
that I do, I expect greatness. "Much is achieved
by those who work together".
give seminars on this subject so as not to get
too lengthy in my explanation allow me to state:
My mission in any of my companies or projects
is to recruit, nurture, support, and work with
leaders. If I can create a culture that allows
these leaders to work together, a team is born.
When we attach that team to an idea the result
is the kind of SUCCESS that is unattainable for
is it important to give back to the community?
of all, I give back to the community because I
have the heart to do so. However, I do not feel
it is our obligation, as some governmental programs
may suggest (yes, I am also very politically minded).
It is just like your giving to the church, if
you don't do it with a compassionate heart, then
your giving is in vain.
give because I feel responsible to do so, and
I feel good about doing it.
experience has been when you give to your community;
your community will respond ten fold.
are your mentors, and why?
Jesus Christ because during his time on earth
he was repeatedly challenged. He refused to be
negatively influenced by adversity. He never accepted
no for an answer. He took advantage of every opportunity
he found. He was steadfast in his mission, and
he always conducted himself in a peaceful and
Greg Tingle would have to be my second because
he motivated, he makes things happen, and he is
so darn good looking.

Children- Hunter, Peyton, & Brock
can you disclose about the stage that things are
at, and the overseas expansion?
am in the initial stages of expansion. My feeling
is that I will have a lot more to report in a
couple of months. I am excited and amazed at the
interest we have for "Entrepreneurs"
around the world, without anyone seeing the final
sponsors and supporters are you chasing (that
you are comfortable to disclose)?
will not begin sponsorship drive until mid December.
We will have a finished product "in the can"
at that point and I will be able to show them
the finished product of at least two episodes
at that point.
is your preferred telecommunications supplier
- Virgin, Vodafone, British Telecom or other,
preferred telecommunications supplier will be
the company that best supports "Entrepreneurs"
The Reality Show
is your definition of success?
the positive in failure.
of my "coined" phrases is "The
measure of your success is what you do with failure".
do you like best about golf?
It the only gentlemen's sport.
It is the best test of character. What you put
on the score card, how you react to good and bad
shots, whether or not you use the "foot wedge"
etc. will let you know all you need to about yourself
and others. I have hired and most importantly
not hired allot of people based on their actions
on the golf course. But most of all
It's a lot like my view on life. No matter what
just happened, each new shot is your opportunity
to start over and do better.
would you like to visit in Australia? (may I suggest
Airlie Beach and Proserpine - golf and yachts)
think all of Australia is beautiful. Everyone
I have met from there is so nice and I can't wait
to visit. I am a beach boy, so no matter what
part of the world I am in I will generally gravitate
to the water and/or beaches. Airlie Beach it is!
you have any tips for "The Shark" Greg
Mr. Norman ever asks my opinion of his affairs,
I would certainly put my best foot forward to
accommodate him. However, because of my admiration
and respect for his achievements both in golf
and business it would be counter productive for
me to offer any unsolicited tips to a man that
has already made it.
tip when his does ask will be: Realize you are
already a winner, continue to respect those around
you but walk with an air of confidence and when
you begin the final round on Sunday whether you
are one stroke up or one stroke down. Know that
you will not be beaten this day!
Go Big or Go Home
If you want it, you can have it.
you working on any other projects?
My new book "To The Point" will be ready
for distribution in February 2005
2) In negotiations for my first role in a Motion
3) Contemplating being a co-host on a new national
4) Deciding on Business idea for round 2 of "Entrepreneurs"
The Reality show.
5) Most importantly, introducing EventsLeader
to the world as the Brand for "what to do
and where to go"
this sentence...If I could change the world I
would.....? (I know this question is a little
out there, but think big)
would come up with a non-intrusive charitable
campaign that ingeniously had all nations working
together for a good cause.
would probably call it "Unity 2005"
with a subtitle like "Making a difference"
would also make sure Greg Tingle and Steve Cooke
were on my team to proliferate this idea. Steve
because he is my new brother and Greg because
he is WORLD-WIDE!
you Greg. As you may gather a play on my sense
of humor or lack there of, but I am passionate
about everything I have stated. I look forward
to working with you.
noter: And we look forward to working with Bob
and his powerful team of entrepruners.
