With Two Hands

Here at The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™, we are a bunch of doers.  Put simply, we like to get things done rather than just talking about it.  Action creates results. And the result we are going after is supporting people in finding their passions and purpose so that they can pursue a career that they enjoy!!!!…

We KNOW we are on the right track

The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ is based on a few simple ideas. Simple, yet so powerful they literally could solve many of the problems we currently face as a society. First is our mission – helping people determine their passion and then assisting them in leveraging that passion into a stream of income so that they…

One last thing…..

I am certain many people reading this, those who have been following The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ all along, and even those who may have only casually heard about what we are doing are asking the same thing: WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO DO SOMETHING? Today I am pleased to tell you that we are NOT…

The First Day

On Friday morning, we stepped into a new era. What the legacy of the next four years will be is yet unknown – as is anything that lies in the future. But what I do know for sure is that whether you are celebrating or not, there is a statement that we all must begin to…

I cannot wait for 2017! In case there was any doubt, I am excited – really excited for the coming year. 2016 was an “interesting“ year to say the least. Aside from all the major events that took place all over the world and in the United States, those of us here at The ZIPPER…

Bullying and What We Can Do About It

Bullying is on the rise in our country (Source: http://www.bullyingstatistics.org/content/bullying-statistics.html) and unfortunately, so too are the dramatic and sometimes tragic outcomes of bullying.

Going out on a limb here – Thank You! (in advance)

As we begin the 2016 Holiday Season by celebrating Thanksgiving, all of us here at The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ want to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone following along, engaging on social media, tweeting back at us, and generally showing interest and support in what we are doing. We also want to thank each…

“They” are not going to fix this

Recently I shared a meme within The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ Facebook Group.

The quote:    The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ is a non-profit organization and as such, we cannot, and do not, endorse candidates for public office…

Getting to the root cause of the issue – I’ve found it!

The Answers Can Only Be Found Within Our Youth Years ago (hard to imagine saying that), when the first inklings of The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ started rattling around in my head, I really had no idea what I was contemplating.
