DEVAN AND MORGAN KLINE Burn Boot Camp, the nationwide fitness franchisor designed for women, has paid $3.15 million for a 20,000 square foot building in Cornelius that will become the fast-growing chain’s national headquarters. The Kenton Place building will accommodate a staff of 35 in corporate, and another 20 in the gym on the main floor.

Burn, founded by Devan and Morgan Kline, began franchising in 2015. Since then the brand has exploded. By the end of 2016 Burn Boot Camp opened 26 locations and awarded over 150 franchises. “Our brand gives our clients lasting empowerment, confidence, and physical results,” said Devan Kline.

Record number of businesses change hands in first quarter BY DAVE VIES​​ER A record number of businesses were bought and sold ​around the country during the first quarter, according to BizBuySell’s Insight Report, and it appears we’re following the same trend. Within the Charlotte area, there were 276 businesses listed during the first quarter of 2018 according to BizBuySell​.​​ ​The median asking price of businesses for sale in Charlotte​​was down slightly, at $294,500 compared to $295,000 at the beginning of 2017. Businesses listed in Charlotte at the beginning of 2018 had a median revenue of $549,213 up from $538,534 at this same time last year in 2017. Median cash flow for Charlotte businesses is $119,719 vs​.​the median cash flow of $110,000 last quarter Joe Vagnone, a business and financial broker, says that b ​ usiness is brisk. “This trend has been building starting sometime early 2017.

Dave Gilroy, ​m​anaging ​d​irector of Scale Finance​,​ sa​id​ ​his company has managed ​sales of​three companies in the last six months with two of the three seeing extremely strong interest from​​private equity groups. ​“​These were all high​-​growth software businesses which are attractive to both financial and strategic/corporate buyers under nearly all market conditions​,​”​ he said​. Gilroy added that his firm is currently managing a sale for a lower-tech $35 million construction services firm, which he describes as a non-traditional industry segment for private equity. “​W​e are nonetheless seeing a very favorable reception in the market.”

There are still 246 apartments, the same amount a​ s before. Back in September, Cornelius Commissioner Dave Gilroy said projects like this ​ultimately ​overcrowd schools, congest roads and exhaust public services. “They erode our quality of life over time and drive up our tax rates as studies have shown that their demand for police, fire, emergency and other public services exceed their tax revenue.

New Corvid HQ adds weight to LKN as corporate locale

BY MELISSA ATHERTON Corvid Technologies has officially begun construction on a 100,000 square-foot headquarters building just east of I-77 at Exit 31. Not far from Ingersoll Rand, Lowe’s and LangTree, the $30 million project will be another anchor in what amounts to a burgeoning “fringe city” at the southern end of Lake Norman nearest Charlotte. “We expect to see more headquarters locations and large office users in a campus setting,” said Brian Long, vice president of sales and leasing for R.L. West, developer of LangTree. Over $1 billion in development is predicted. The Corvid campus is located on a ten-acre tract that is part of 270-plus acres owned by R.L. West. Corvid’s expansion plans call for 367 jobs with salaries averaging about $110,000. Employees are primarily scientists and engineers with master’s degrees or doctorates. A state Job Development Investment Grant, at $9 million, anticipates a $764 million economic impact from Corvid over 12 years. “The business-friendly climate at the local, county and state level combined with access to premier engineering talent were all major factors in our decisions to locate the company headquarters in the area,” said Dr. David Robinson, CEO of Corvid. Commercial real estate broker Gordon Allebach, owner of G Brokerage in Cornelius, said the Corvid deal is “fantastic” for both commercial and residential real estate. “From the 30,000 foot perspective, this part of Lake Norman is starting to get a good core,” he said, “and there is something to build on.”

“This is a huge win,” he said, explaining that corporate campuses are “a 10” on the scale of best new projects. “This is a big win locally, exactly what they are going after. Most of the projects I’m involved in right now are looking for large campuses.” Residential Realtors were sanguine as well. “The new Corvid headquarters is great news for Mooresville and Mount Mourne,” said Allen Tate’s Juliet Bowden. “There is a highly educated group of individuals coming to our area that will generate demand for both temporary and long-term housing.” Construction is expected to take about a year. The campus will include a pair of three-story buildings housing a data center, mechanics lab and prototyping lab. Corvid hired Shelco as the general contractor and LS3P as the architect. Shelco is one of the largest privately held general contracting companies in the Southeast, reporting 2017 revenues of $320 million. LS3P is a multidisciplinary firm offering architecture, interiors, and planning. Corvid is a private company that provides technology-based engineering solutions for aircraft, missile defense, armor development, biological systems, and warhead design. The company has a supercomputer system, prototyping plant, ballistics and mechanics lab, and high-fidelity computational physics solvers. Customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Military, and NASCAR. Corvid, which Robinson launched in 2004 with five employees, is averaging 30 percent yearly growth. To facilitate the Corvid investment, Iredell County and the Town of Mooresville provided $2 million in tax incentives. The agreement allocates $3 million to the state’s Utility Account, which will help finance infrastructure improvements. Corvid has satellite offices in Virginia, Alabama, California and Hawaii.

Martin Truex Foundation funding children’s emergency department

The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation is giving $1.2 million to Novant Health to establish a children’s emergency department at Novant Huntersville and an integrative medicine oncology clinic in Charlotte. NASCAR superstar Martin Truex and partner Sherry Pollex say they hope to provide healthy and positive outcomes for children who need specialized emergency medical care as well as to adults living with cancer. The couple created the foundation to advocate for children and teens affected by cancer. In 2014, doctors diagnosed Sherry with stage 3c ovarian cancer. After surgery and chemo, Sherry began healing through integrative medicine, nutrition, exercise and the mind/body connection. In 2015, they rebranded the foundation’s mission to support both childhood and ovarian cancers. In 2016, Sherry launched SherryStrong.org as a health and wellness resource for women fighting cancer. In July 2017, she underwent successful surgery for a recurrence. “This remarkably generous gift from the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation will help Novant Health

strengthen our community by ensuring cancer patients achieve optimal health and healing and children have access to life-saving emergency services,” said Dr. Andrew Mueller, senior vice president of Novant Health and president of the greater Charlotte market. The Novant Health Martin Truex Jr. Foundation Children’s Emergency Dept. is scheduled to open at Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center in 2019. It will be the only one of its kind devoted exclusively to caring for children and teens open 24 hours a day, seven days a week serving the Lake Norman communities. The department will be designed to meet the needs of children and their families and will include a colorful waiting room, a triage room, nine private exam rooms and advanced child-sized medical equipment. It will be staffed by physicians, nurses and other medical providers specially trained in pediatric emergency medicine. The Novant Health SherryStrong Integrative Medicine Oncology Clinic will be housed in the new John M. and Claudia W. Belk Heart and Vascular Institute and Edward I. and Agnes B. Weisiger Cancer Institute, currently under construction at the corner of Fourth Street and Queens Road in Charlotte and scheduled to open in 2020. The Novant Health SherryStrong Integrative Medicine Oncology Clinic will enhance the current Novant Health Integrative Medicine program, which takes a holistic approach to managing the physical and emotional effects of cancer treatment, recovery and survivorship by combining a range of complementary therapies and healthy lifestyle practices with modern medicine.

Cool Breeze Cyclery changes name and location in tandem

VASILOFF.

Cool Breeze Cyclery, a mainstay of the bicycle business in Lake Norman, is changing its name to Trek of Charlotte, to match its stores in Northlake and

Ballantyne. The business has also moved from Exit 31 in Mooresville to larger space in Mooresville Square, at the intersection of Williamson and Brawley School. The showroom is more than 25 percent larger, said majority owner Chris Vasiloff. The general cycling market has been as flat as the coastal plain for the past two years. Nevertheless, Vasiloff is capitalizing on some local trends to eke out a 15 percent sales increase across all three stores.

• Kid’s mountain biking: there are now two Charlotte leagues. • Gravel bikes: Adventure bike looks like a road bike, acts like a trail bike. • Electric assist bikes: Rapid growth in the past three years. “With new greenway construction in our area and the assist that the electric motor provides, families of different riding abilities can all ride together at the same pace and enjoy all the benefits of being outdoors while getting fun exercise at the same time,” Vasiloff said. More growth seems likely with the name change as well. “We wanted to solidify our identity under the Trek of CLT brand as we work to develop a consistent reputation among our existing shops and help with transitions to new shops we may open or acquire,” he said.

D9 Brewing will more than double in size D9 Brewing plans to more than double the size of its Cornelius brewery, and at the same time add even more science to the art of brewing beer. D9 CEO Andrew Durstewitz, an engineer for 15 years, has grown the threeyear-old company from $100,000 a year to what’s expected to be a $4.8 million year in annualized revenue in 2018. Microbreweries and craft brewers comprise a macro industry, with $23.5 billion in annual revenues, according to Statista. The segment is growing, even as the business of mass-producing beers is flatter than yesterday’s brew. Overall U.S. beer volume sales were down 1 percent in 2017, while craft brewer sales continue to grow at a rate of 5 percent by volume, reaching 12.7 percent of the U.S. beer market in 2017. Durstewitz, who started the company with another engineer and a chiropractor, will expand the operation to 30,000 square feet, increasing capacity to 30,000 barrels of beer a year. The brewery is located in 12,000

square feet of space on Treynorth Drive right now. Making great beer is a science. Indeed, D9 develops new beers with the help of wild microflora purified and cultivated in the lab. Unlike standard brewing technologies, which typically add ingredients at the beginning or the end of the fermentation, D9 adds microflora at different stages in the fermentation process to deliver precise flavor profiles. After aging the brews in oak, D9 uses a centrifuge to clarify the brew. There’s minimal contact with open air; dissolved oxygen stays below 16 parts per billion during the packaging phase. D9 has 15 full-time employees and over 27 event and part-time staffers. “We’ve kept our mission of inspiring and supporting community at the heart of all that we do,” Durstewitz says. “While this mission has been our primary focus, we’ve also stayed intent on growing a business that has more than doubled in size each year since its inception.”

Arts Center groundbreaking is planned for next year

Summer is Here! Are You Ready?

BY MELISSA ATHERTON The Cornelius Arts Center’s pre-design phase is complete but questions about funding, programming, parking and traffic remain. “The stars have to line up for a project like this,” said Greg Wessling, chairman of the Arts Center Board of Directors. “This is our optimal dream program,” the former Lowe’s corporate executive added. The Arts Center planned for downtown Cornelius is currently scheduled to open in 2020 on a 1.85-acre parcel just west of the Police Station and across from Town Hall. The Town of Cornelius purchased the site for $1.495 million. Architectural firms C Design and Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture have been hired; construction is scheduled to begin in August 2019, about a year later than planned. Revitalizing Cornelius’ downtown is one of the principal goals. The dream plan includes: A plaza, outdoor amphitheater, flexible theater, auditorium space, ceramics and artists studios, classrooms for music, visual arts, digital design, dance, workshops, art galleries, outsourced food services, rooftop space, community and special events rooms. Arts Center Executive Director Justin Dionne said the amphitheater and green space will provide opportunities for street festivals and special events. He said there is also potential for movie nights and concert series.

The arts center, the jewel of the community’s proposed art district, will be a “public-private endeavor” with the town of Cornelius serving as its landlord, Wessling said. Private funding for the estimated $16-20 million project is still an open question. Dionne said the pre-design phase findings pointed to the need for a budget-led process before a finalized cost estimate is secured. PMA Consulting has been hired to assist with initial campaign planning and assessment. “It’s really hard to raise money when you don’t know what you’re raising money for,” Wessling said. The project originally called for a regionally significnt ceramic studio—sort of a “Nutcracker” level draw—but that’s been scrapped. Partial funding for the project comes from $4 million in downtown reinvestment bonds approved by voters in 2013. Additional funding is expected to come from private “naming” donors. Allen Tate Realtors recently presented a check for $6,345 to the non-profit arts center. Wessling said $28,000 in donations have been made this fiscal year. He emphasized that fundraising will not officially begin until July. “We haven’t really asked anybody for a dime just yet. We don’t know exactly what the project is yet,” Wessling said.

Growth Strategies

Pull your salesteam in the same direction with a great book list Getting everyone in an organization to pull in the same direction sometimes seems like an insurmountable task. A leader works from department to department encouraging, instructing and keeping the strategy alive. Within a department a manager interacts person by person to create a collaborative team working contiguously on a multi-part plan to achieve their goals. Because business units also work autonomously, it can Sales Coach be tough keepCHERYL KANE ing everyone on one path, working tasks with excellence as a standard, solving problems in tandem, and finding ways to work together between business units free of internal dissention. One way to help revitalize a unified vision or refresh the level of teamwork in an organization is to clarify everyone’s focus with a common read activity. You can draw upon a current best seller list or draw upon writings that have continued over many years to offer propelling motivation to highly successful people. These sources may offer you and your sales team fresh clarity in your strategy, motivation, and approach to everyday processes. Groups across the nation are about to start their summer common read programs so why not your sales or leadership team, too? Start by defining your goal: Do you want to showcase the value of excellence as the standard for performance, perfect your navigational accuracy (vision), strengthen the tenacity of your team in a highly competitive market, enhance your team’s ability to communicate with different kinds of people, or assist individuals in seeing their capacity as something greater than they do today? No matter your purpose there are excellent books available on what-

ever device one wants to access them through. When you roll out the reading plan be sure to explain how and when you will bring everyone together in conversation, so the common read becomes a commonplace topic of conversation in the workplace. Cheryl welcomes your communication at (704) 595-7188 or email: CherylKane@cherylkane.net.

Motivation & Self Control Seeing One’s Capacity Mindset, by Carol S. Dweck was mentioned by Bill Gates in an interview I read. He said it had been recommended to him by his wife years ago and was truly influential in his thinking. I have read it twice and know I’ll read it often-I’ve marked passages throughout, so I can find them quickly; it helps me show someone ‘how’ the way they ‘see’ barriers to problem solving, challenges, or possibilities might be stalled only by their viewpoint.

Charles’s Duhigg’s books, The Power of Habit, or, Smarter, Faster, Better, and Willpower: Rediscovering The Greatest Human Strength by Roy F. Baumeister, and John Tierney, might offer fresh insight and understanding of our behavior. Those seeking self-improvement or who wish to have new ideas on how to manage a team may find these helpful.

Excellence Through Error Free Processes

Interpreting, Understanding Other People Better awareness of how others perceive the world and communicate with us can help us decipher those we deal with every day; we might find them less antagonistic, locate ways to interact with them more successfully, and help us understand why some people react to us when it may have previously perplexed us. Deborah Tannen’s books, Talking 9 to 5, or, You Just don’t Understand, may help your teams learn to communicate more effectively with each other and with customers.

The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande is one of my perennial favorites. It reminds me the simplest way to an excellent product is not always about memorization and perfect recall but rather freeing one’s mind up to concentrate on the context around a situation. His other books are enjoyable reading as well. Bringing your team together to increase sales, perfect work processes, see a single vision more clearly, or strengthen their personal potential, can find momentum through common reading of a good book. Through everyone perceiving the book’s interpretation a bit differently, discussions can be insightful and invigorating; everyone and the organization can benefit.

schools that are exempt from some of the regulations that traditional public schools must follow. The outflow of students seems directly proportionate to families not being satisfied with CMS. A new report from Helen Ladd at Duke University and John D. Singleton at University of Rochester suggests that charter schools drain resources from the public school system. Since school districts have fixed costs such as utilities and central office administration, the mother school district loses the average funding for a student while they still incur fixed costs. The number of charter schools has grown rapidly since the state lifted the charter school cap in 2011. Since then, the number of charter schools has increased from 99 to 173, and the number of students attending charter schools has risen about 150 percent. It stands to reason that traditional public school systems will continue to face added budget pressures if the charter sector grows further. Given the CMS bond referendum which snubbed North Mecklenburg, it also stands to reason that towns would look for options to increase

capacity. “HB 514 simply gives the Town the ability to pursue charters at some future date, subject to citizen approval and perhaps via a referendum. HB514 adds a potential option for future boards to consider,” said Cornelius Commissioner Denis Bilodeau., explaining that municipal charters are not in the realm of possibilities right now due to budget constraints. In North Carolina, counties are responsible for financing their own capital programs. Meanwhile, new charter schools—and public schools—create construction jobs as well as classroom and support jobs. There was no support for HB 514 in Davidson, suggesting that it could be a long time before the local towns get into the charter school business. The Ladd/Singleton study says losing funding based on one student’s departure doesn’t result in the fractional reduction of a teacher or a bus route. The study, released in December, found that charter schools had “significant negative fiscal” effects on Durham Public Schools, the Orange County school system and four oth-

Joining up with Morgan in Naples, Devan opened a new women’s only fitness club called Lightening 900, which would ultimately become the prototype for Burn Boot Camp. The Klines moved to Charlotte in 2012. Their real love and attention was always focused on the boot camp and Devan decided to open a site in the parking lot of a local gym. The experiment succeeded and Burn Boot Camp was on its way. The name may have changed but the goal remained helping women improve their health and wellness. The Klines’ goal is to reach a total of 1,000 franchise locations in the next few years. Franchisees can expect an investment of approximately $100,000. Each facility has a retail center with

supplements, retail, and accessories in addition to their exciting and everchanging membership offers. Additionally, each franchise is equipped with an online affiliate program that includes assistance around buying and selling equipment. The franchise, which had been based in makeshift office space in Huntersville, runs on a five-pillar philosophy focusing on mindset, whole food nutrition, burst training, strength training and environment to achieve success. “Many of our franchise partners were first introduced to the brand as clients, and fell in love with it after seeing how effective our philosophy is,” said Kline. “Our family like franchise system extends into the atmosphere of each location. Clients experience a supportive community in every camp and we are truly grateful to facilitate life-long friendships.”

er North Carolina districts. The study found that charter schools are creating a fiscal burden for the Durham district between $500 and $700 per student. The share of charter students in Durham now approaches 16 percent. For Iredell County, the report estimates a negative impact of between $200 and $500 per student, less in Cabarrus County. The North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools says our

world has evolved to a place where choice is part of all aspects of everyday life. “Charter schools utilize 100 percent of their allocated state and local funding to purchase buildings, pay employees and run the school. They must be innovative and focused on what provides them the greatest return on investment and optimize their service to their students,” the association said.

3560 Trinity Church sold for $1.8 million

Average Days on Market

Source: Lake Norman Realty

A high-price home sale has occurred in Concord where a 10-acre estate sold for $1.8 million to buyers who looked at luxury properties all over the region. Mario Mitchell of Coldwell Banker in Charlotte represented the buyers who looked at homes in Waxhaw, Tega Cay, Fort Mill and Lake Norman before se-

lecting the Trinity Church home. “When it comes to the very high end it honestly doesn’t matter the location per se,” Mitchell said. “I believe our luxury market is based on lifestyle and whether the buyer is interested in South Charlotte, Lake Norman or Cabarrus, there are plenty of options

based on their lifestyle.” The house, at 3560 Trinity Church, has five bedrooms and nine baths in 10,000 square feet of space. The property features a pool, a carriage house and an outdoor fireplace. Mooresville-based Anchor Real Estate listed the property at $1.99 million

and sold it in less than a month—quite speedy in this price range. Mitchell said buyers at the top high end of the local market want to “access the lifestyle...such as water, shopping, dining options, outdoor activities and access to an airport to jet away easily for business and pleasure, which each of these markets has fantastic options.” Houses in many price ranges are being sold almost as fast as they go on the market. Case Schiller, the respected Dow Jones research division, says home prices in Charlotte rose 6.2 percent year over year vs. 6.5 percent nationally. Super hot markets like Las Vegas rose at the rate of 12.4 percent while Chicago weighed in at a scant 2.8 percent increase from March of last year to March of 2018. From February to March, Charlotte prices rose 1 percent, ahead of the national average of .8 percent. Las Vegas prices in just a month’s time rose 1.5 percent; San Francisco, 2.1 percent and Seattle, 2.8 percent. David M. Blitzer, managing director at Case Schiller, expects more price increases, based on supplies. “Looking across various national statistics on sales of new or existing homes, permits for new construction, and financing terms, two figures that stand out are rapidly rising home prices and low inventories of existing homes for sale,” he said. Months-supply, which combines inventory levels and sales, is currently

Hot Properties at 3.8 months, lower than the levels of the 1990s, before the housing boom and bust. “Until inventories increase faster than sales, or the economy slows significantly, home prices are likely to continue rising,” he said. Of course, supplies are tight, especially in homes priced JENNINGS below $750,000. It plays out in local data, says Abigail Jennings, president of Lake Norman Realty. During April, average days on the market (DOM) for Lake Norman was much lower for homes priced under $750,000 than for those priced over $750,000. Of course, data is skewed somewhat becomes of the smaller number of sales at higher price points. According to Lake Norman Realty research, homes priced between $350,000 and $500,000, on average took 73 days to sell this past April. Interestingly enough, DOM this year for that price range is down 36 percent from April 2017, Jennings said, explaining that a total of 43 homes transacted in this sampling. DOM was comparable in the entry-level luxury price range, from $500,000 to

$750,000. It took an average of 87 days to sell in that price range, down 13 percent from April of last year, according to the Lake Norman Realty research. But between $750,000 and $1 million, homes are taking longer to sell—88 days, which is 22 percent longer than the same time last year. The pool, though, is smaller with just 16 deals in this range, Jennings explained. For homes priced between $1 million and $2 million—there were only 11— DOM came in at 139 days, up 33.7 percent from April a year ago. For homes over $2 million, Jennings said DOM was 116 days. There were only seven such sales this April, none during April of 2017. She explained that a properly priced and staged home will sell much faster than the averages demonstrate, even in the upper price brackets. “Multiple offers are being seen regularly in this limited inventory market,” Jennings said. Best practices are for buyers to act quickly when they find their dream home. “For sellers, don’t be tempted to overprice if you want your property to sell. Properties priced above market value are not selling quickly, especially in the upper ranges,” Jennings said.

A two-story lakefront traditional at 134 North Shore Drive sold for $1 million after being listed at $1.149 by Lawrie Lawrence. Recently remodeled, the three-level home has four bedrooms and four full baths.

Opinion

How partisan can you get? Look right here. BY DAVE VIESER Republican legislators are considering a bill which could dramatically hinder bipartisan efforts to modify or cancel the CINTRA I-77 toll lane contract. The proposal would require that the state legislature get 60 days advance notice before the toll lane contract is modified or canceled. It would also require that any change in the contract be approved by the full state legislature. Kurt Naas, a Cornelius Town Board member and founder of the Widen-I77 anti toll group, scratched his head. “I’m confounded as to why our representatives continue to make it more difficult to do the right thing,” he said. The proposed changes were actually included in a long list of technical bill modifications which surfaced late Tuesday in Raleigh. North Mecklenburg officials believe this 60-day lead time would give CINTRA way too much warning that the toll lane contract was being changed or canceled.

The 60-day notification period really is puzzling. If you were going to fire someone would you give them two months notice? Somehow this latest development sounds more like politics at their worst. It puts our local Republican legislators in a bind. Mecklenburg County Commissioner Jim Puckett, who says NC Sen. Jeff Tarte and NC Rep. John Bradford are trying to help, says the I-77 mess requires a political solution as much as a financial one. It appears that the whole issue about changes in the I-77 toll lane contract arose after Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper requested bonding authority in the proposed 2019 state budget to address potential changes in the toll lane contract. Those changes had been discussed for months by the bipartisan I-77 Advisory Group, and the expectation was that the governor and State DOT would drive the bus, so to speak, to implement whatever changes were ultimately agreed upon.

Book Review Author Michael C. Bush, the CEO of Great Place to Work, asserts that companies must maximize their employees’ human potential, since competitive strength today comes from your workforce and its performance. In the past, businesses valued knowledge workers for know-how and problem-solving skills. As computers become increasingly competent, certain skills might no longer command premium salaries. However, software can’t incorporate essentially human characteristics like creativity and passion. For that you need dedicated employees. Managers who develop their workforce’s human potential and build an inclusive, high-trust culture can boost productivity, flexibility and innovation. Bush and his research team detail the Great Place to Work For All approach, but could do more to place it in a broader organizational behavior framework. getAbstract recommends their worthwhile data and solid advice to executives and HR professionals.

The group members had already voiced nearly universal agreement to complete the current construction, then to alter the I-77 expansion in Mecklenburg County from two toll lanes to one general purpose lane and one toll lane. The NCDOT had argued successfully in court that the public interest was protected because the DOT, in their sole discretion, could terminate the contract at any time. Now it appears that, if this bill is approved, termination would also require approval of the entire legislature. It seems like the leadership in the state legislature just can’t accept the fact that the I-77 CINTRA contract was a mistake. It’s already cost Pat McCrory his job, and if this bill is adopted, other GOP officials may also fall by the wayside. More importantly, it puts another roadblock on legitimate attempts to fix this whole I-77 toll lane mess.

The Soul of Money Asserting that money must connect to your soul, activist Lynne Twist seeks the truth of her relationship with “scarcity” and “sufficiency” in a series of encounters with people at the extremes of poverty, wealth, fame and anonymity. She finds inspiration and resistance in the scenarios she shares from her 50 years as a global activist and a fundraiser for the Hunger Project. Twist grounds her discovery in social theory and personal observations. Fundraising professionals, nonprofit managers or social entrepreneurs will enjoy her varied experiences and will likely emerge rightly feeling virtuous, enlightened and impassioned to address the social ills that money can ease. getAbstract recommends Twist’s insights to activists, students and professors, NGO personnel, philanthropists and policy-makers who will appreciate her insights about making money mean more.
