Company Description:
Useful and unbiased information on all types of insurance. We're here to answer your insurance questions. If we don't know the insurance answer we will find out.

Response:

Yes, there is no fear here that you are being given a sales pitch.  You can trust the ethics of the site. This gives back something to everyone whether you are buying your first vehicle or your first home. Perhaps you have gone years without asking a question and yet you really do not understand what you have covered.

It is also a tool for the new broker for looking up terms, helping to prepare for exams and developing a better understanding of the insurance process. For an agent with vast experience this is an opportunity to read about current news and perhaps submit an article for the benefit of all the readers.

Ask us a question - we're here to help!

Response:

Thank you for this opportunity to appear on your blog.

I believe my company meets a socio-economic need by supporting small businesses in America.  The nation is supported by small businesses that provide the majority of jobs in the U.S.A.   As small business goes, so goes the economy. 

As an independent small business person myself, I have have the luxury of choosing whom I will solicit for business and whom I may coach and share ideas. I actively select against businesses that I find to be socially unfriendly and frequently may offer special pricing to those that my heart calls to support.

Contact: Danielle Wallace

Company Description:
Hi everyone, Thanks for being part of this community. We will visit your website regularly. Let me introduce ourselves. We are two mom's in a small town in Iowa, who wanted to be crafty. We started to upcycle clothing and blankets and made cool new things out of them like gifts, baby clothing, accessories etc. It was so much fun doing this, that a new idea came up and now we have an online store, a store in our town and a work area where people can come to be crafty, have something nice to drink and socialize. Also we'll have workshops for especially children to craft and learn about recycling. We hope to be a non-profit business soon.

Response:

We definitely  have a social purpose.

We like the way we interact, a lot of new ideas came just by talking to each other, even "mommy-issues".

Now we invite other mother's, students and other people who want to do something good for the environment,  share information, be crafty and have something nice to drink ( we will bake something yummy too).

This small business is part of a  building where more (non-Profit) businesses are located to help a community grow and create more interactions in a town like Fairfield. There will be an Art show, a recording studio, a place with computers where especially the younger crowd can hang out, a stage for bands to practice, etc.

Our "Open House"/ opening date will be January 30th, so we hope to see some people who are interested. This company will be a good thing for the future.

Location: Fairfield, IA
Website: http://www.peopleclaim.com
Type: online alternative dispute resolution and consumer diligence
Contact: Christian Zambrano

Company Description:
Peopleclaim provides cost effective online dispute resolution. Our automated process does not require lawyers, mediators or other intermediaries. Most claims can be resolved in a fraction of the cost and time that is required by litigation or other complicated dispute resolution processes. You can use Peopleclaim for any type of dispute including product or service providers, professionals, websites, or even government agencies. For more information visit www.peopleclaim.com

Response:

We started Peopleclaim with the idea that there should be a better way to resolve common commercial or consumer disputes without litigation, arbitration or other form complicated and expensive dispute resolution.   The problem of litigation is huge, and impacts nearly every business and consumer in America.    Litigation is estimated to be a $200 Billion plus business, growing at 3 times US GDP.  According to a 2004 study, every American family of four pays an estimated $3,300 annual “tort tax” just for medical malpractice related health care costs.  Just ask anyone who has been though a protracted legal battle- it’s never fun and rarely profitable for either side.

While there will never be a substitute for competent legal counsel and litigation for complex legal disputes, many types of common disputes can be better resolved though direct party to party negotiation.  In fact, it’s estimated that about 92% of every case filed in court, ends up being resolved through negotiated settlement between the parties, as opposed to an adjudicated decision by a judge or jury.  Why?  The answer is simple, litigation is slow, complicated and expensive and the outcome is always uncertain.  Disputing parties usually decide after a year or two of legal bills that making an offer to settle is in both sides best interest.  This has lead to the emergence of mediation practices as many law firms, but mediation can still be expensive and time consuming.

Peopleclaim is a fully automated process of dispute resolution that allows the parties to negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement online, and without the need for lawyers or mediators. The “claimant” engages their claim counter party via an email or physical mail notice on the site  that includes the main issues or events leading up to the dispute, a list of requested resolution terms-e.g. damages, repairs, change in policy etc- outlining what they want to resolve the matter fully, and any supporting documents or exhibits relevant to their claim. 

The parties can make offers and counter-offers, ask questions or request more information prior to settlement.  Unresolved claims, post- generally after 14 days on Peopleclaim’s public registry where they can be viewed by search engine users.  Public posting provides an ongoing incentive for settlement by the parties and allows consumers and businesses to view the dispute histories of people or businesses they might want to do business with.  Public posting also allows other parties to offer settlement suggestions to the parties in order to bring an “online consensus view” of the disputes and proposed terms of settlement.

Type: restaurant & bar
Contact: Ken or Wendy Gordon

Company Description:
Tucked away in the scenic beauty of the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina, the Gamekeeper is a four diamond restaurant famous for its scrumptious game meats (e.g., ostrich, buffalo, duck, antelope, elk, venison, rattlesnake, and more), the fresh, local and organic seasonal vegetables, and the bourbon-soaked bread pudding. With the help of our devoted and talented staff, the Gamekeeper astonishes its visitors by providing them with the finest modern mountain cuisine, an extensive wine list, and a friendly and attentive atmosphere. The Gamekeeper has steadily grown since we purchased the restaurant in 2000. In fact, the restaurant has become so popular that our guests request souvenirs, recipes, and even catering services. In the near future, we would like to be able to provide full catering services and even a cookbook or two. Because the fall season is our busiest time of the year, be sure to make your reservations early so that you can reserve a table or private room.

Response:
As for a social purpose, we make it a habit to purchase produce that is locally and organically grown as well as meats that are humanely farm-raised.  We are members of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, Appalachian Sustainable Agricultural Project, New River Organic Growers Association, Humane Farming Association, Watauga County Humane Society, The Carter Center, and Appalachian State Park Council.  Every year the Gamekeeper hosts the High Country Conservancy Wine tasting in which proceeds go towards land trusts that are created in order to prevent the overdevelopment of the Appalachian Mountains.
