Are your core corporate growth opportunities limited? Do you seek new avenues for expansion? Is the timing opportune to consider such a quest? If you are the owner or executive of a small to mid-sized manufacturing or service company then this book is a must-read.
The text includes a broad range of diversification options supported by numerous practical examples of companies of all sizes that have embarked on a strategy involving diversification.

It lists the many and various types of diversification – vertical, horizontal, and tangential – available for growth and explains how they might be identified, evaluated, and effectively pursued. Opportunities and risks of each of the categories are addressed as well

Janet Mills,
Attorney General
State of Maine
Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate

Janet Mills has spent her life fighting for the people of Maine. From her time serving as a District Attorney and State Representative to her current role as Attorney General, Janet has been a tireless advocate for working families, small businesses, and those who have been left behind.

After the 2008 economic crisis left thousands of Maine families facing bankruptcy, it was Janet who successfully sued financial ratings company Standard and Poor’s, holding them responsible for their role in the collapse. Then, Janet used settlement money to fund programs that helped Mainers avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes.

More recently, Janet has led the charge to fight Maine’s opiate crisis. When the Governor’s office refused to take action, Janet took on the pharmaceutical companies, suing them for lying to patients about their products. Bent on saving lives, Janet went on to use settlement funds from these lawsuits to purchase significant amounts of Narcan and distribute it to police officers around the state, in many cases personally driving shipments to rural Maine police stations.

Guest:

Shawn Moody,
Republican Gubernatorial Candidate
Owner, Founder
Moody’s Collision Center

A lifelong common-sense conservative and successful job-creating entrepreneur, Shawn Moody is running for Governor of Maine to ensure Maine continues to be successful for years to come and that every Mainer achieves his or her full potential.

Shawn Moody is best known for the successful business he has grown to 11 locations around Maine.

The son of a single mom who struggled with illness in-and-out of the hospital while trying to raise Shawn and his siblings; Shawn learned firsthand what it meant to struggle and it to overcome adversity.

Growing up in a trailer park in Gorham, the same town in which he now lives, Shawn and his brother and sister worked together with their mom, a hair stylist, to keep the family together.

As a young man, Shawn knew that his way to success in life was a career and a job. At the age of just 13 Shawn started working with automobiles as his hobby and, by that age, had already rebuilt engines and began overhauling cars.

Shawn later started a business in his mom’s garage which has grown to Moody’s Collision Centers, one of Maine’s most successful entrepreneurial companies with 11 locations and nearly 200 employees. Moody’s has twice been named “Maine’s Best Places to Work” statewide.

Moody’s employees are collectively coworker owners. Moody’s employee ownership is a reflection of Shawn Moody’s approach to problem solving, which is based on empowering people and challenging them to achieve success, which benefits everyone from the top-to-bottom of an organization.

As a successful job creator, Shawn Moody knows Maine’s success for years to come is grounded in continuing to grow our economy, create jobs, and improve wages for people all over Maine. He will work to end any job-killing red tape and ensure Maine government works with our small businesses and job creators to succeed, rather than hindering job growth.

Shawn also knows Maine must live within its means. Any state spending must be smart and prudent. The People of Maine must be assured they are getting a dollar’s return for every dollar spent. We must root out waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars wherever it is found.

Independent Gubernatorial Candidate Terry Hayes

Terry Hayes
Independent Gubernatorial Candidate

Hayes For Maine

Terry Hayes is the only candidate for Governor with the experience, independence, and courage to unite Maine, fix a broken political system, and lead our state in a bold new direction. Terry talks straight and tells the truth, puts people over partisanship, and rolls up her sleeves to get the job done.

As Maine’s first independent State Treasurer and Clean Elections candidate for Governor, Terry is beholden only to the Maine people, and not to party leaders, special interests, or wealthy campaign contributors. Republicans and Democrats have twice elected Terry to serve as Maine’s first independent State Treasurer because she has consistently risen above the partisan fray and helped to right the financial ship of state.

As Maine’s next Governor, Terry will bring the same no-nonsense, non-partisan leadership to the Blaine House, uniting Republicans and Democrats around common goals to tackle Maine’s toughest challenges and making Maine the best place to work in America. Terry will lead with integrity, model civility, and champion fiscal responsibility, accountability, and transparency in government.

An outsider on the inside of state government, Terry has a track record of challenging politics as usual in Augusta and forging consensus between Republicans and Democrats. The Bangor Daily News has called Terry a “maverick” with “bipartisan gravitas.”

A PROBLEM-SOLVER

  • When Governor LePage withheld $600 million in transportation investments, Terry worked tirelessly to broker an agreement that released the funding, putting 4,500 Mainers back to work fixing Maine’s roads and bridges.
  • When Democratic and Republican leadership drew partisan lines over how to manage Maine’s unorganized territories, Terry negotiated a compromise bill that improved land use management policies to protect our forests and waterways, preserve our heritage, and expand public input.
  • When Maine had the opportunity to create special tax-advantaged bank accounts for persons with disabilities, Terry partnered with key stakeholders, including disabled citizens, advocates, and financial institutions to develop and implement a sustainable, consumer-friendly product that makes saving possible and affordable for disabled Mainers.
