Saint Patrick’s Day: Be Green with a Green Business Opportunity

Move over cupid and red hearts! Green shamrocks and leprechauns are taking over!  For many Saint Patrick’s Day is a day of celebration filled with green, gold, shamrocks, and lucky leprechauns.  But for others March 17th is a day where the Irish celebrate with a meal of corn beef and cabbage and wash it down with an ice cold beer – maybe a Green one.  But what many overlook is the true meaning behind this green covered holiday.

Saint Patrick is seen as the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland known for bringing Christianity to the country.  But the legend Saint Patrick is most known for is driving the snakes from Ireland.  You are probably thinking of how did he do that?  But you too can be like St. Patrick and “drive the snakes from Ireland”.  However, instead of snakes your will be driving trash out of our environment.  When you stop and think about it, we have a lot of trash that goes undetected surrounding us throughout the day, in our offices, homes, and around the town.  Now think of how often you think about doing something to fix our obvious trash trouble.

It is actually a very simple problem to solve.  In fact, you already have the tools and skills to do so.  By starting your green business, not only will you be able to work from your own home or be your own boss, but you will be passing the knowledge to other companies that they could be saving money by recycling.

I can’t exactly say you’ll be canonized as a Saint and have a holiday named after you, but Saint Patrick started small too! So the next time you pass a celebrant of Saint Patrick’s Day, think of how you can make every day green and drive the trash from our environment by creating your own entirely eco-friendly business.

Presidents’ Day- Barack Obama

born August 4, 1961 is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama previously served as a United States Senator from Illinois, from January 2005 until he resigned following his victory in the 2008 presidential election.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review. He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004.

Following an unsuccessful bid against the Democratic incumbent for a seat in the United States House of Representatives in 2000, Obama ran for the United States Senate in 2004. Several events brought him to national attention during the campaign, including his victory in the March 2004 Illinois Democratic primary for the Senate election and his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. He won election to the U.S. Senate in Illinois in November 2004. His presidential campaign began in February 2007, and after a close campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party presidential primaries against Hillary Rodham Clinton, he won his party’s nomination. In the 2008 presidential election, he defeated Republican nominee John McCain, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. In October 2009, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

As president, Obama signed economic stimulus legislation in the form of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. Other domestic policy initiatives include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010 and the Budget Control Act of 2011. In foreign policy, he ended the war in Iraq, increased troop levels in Afghanistan, signed the New START arms control treaty with Russia, ordered US involvement in the 2011 Libya military intervention, and ordered the military operation that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. In April 2011, Obama declared his intention to seek re-election in the 2012 presidential election.
