No matter where you go, business core principles are the same. In this article Willie talks about how he was born in Alabama and wound up in Saipan operating a Lawn Care company. If you read the first paragraph of the article, it is just as relevant here or in Europe or Australia.

I think it's neat to have a look inside the business owner's mind of another country. Good for Willie for making his dreams come true.

Saipanpreneur of the Week: Willie L. Brundidge Jr. (http://www.saipantribune.com/newsstory.aspx?cat=3&newsID=58182) - The only way to take control of your life, raise your standard of living and move beyond merely surviving is to create your own unique product or service that you offer to increasing numbers of people in exchange for the things of value that you desire. This simple formula applies to countries as well as people. A self-sufficient economy has its own products or services of value to export to the world. Similarly, a self-sufficient individual has something of value to exchange in the global marketplace. That thing of value is based on your natural talent, skill, or interest-in other words, your passion!

Today's featured Saipanpreneur is Willie Brundidge Jr., owner of Mozell's Boys Lawn Care and Trash Collection in Kagman. Willie's personal story is an inspiring tale of determination and triumph. Born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Willie joined the Navy in 1977 right after high school. It was his military tour that, in 1980, took him to Guam. After serving for five years, he decided not to reenlist and was honorably discharged in 1982. He attended Guam Community College for two years, and worked many different jobs there until 1993.
