Providing Resources for Helping Solve Our Personal, Community, National and Global Success Puzzles

Welcome to this online Community Resource Center for helping generate expanded capacity for solving our personal, organizational, national and global “success puzzles”.

The primary purpose of this blog site is to coalesce and share information on creative and innovative ways to help “Expand the Circle of Success” and enable, equip and empower individuals, organizations and communities to realize more of their inherent potential for helping address the social, economic and environmental challenges we face.

Some of the featured resources include Ultimate Destiny University for Successful Living, the Community Economic Development Master’s program at Southern New Hampshire University, CENTER SPACE, Community Solutions, and Rodale which established The Regeneration Project and published Community Options, Projects You Can Do To Regenerate Your Community in 1987

Rodale is the authoritative source for trusted content in health, fitness, and wellness around the world. Rodale reaches more than 70 million people around the world through its category-leading media properties, trade books, subscription online properties and integrated marketing solutions.

Rodale publishes some of the best-known health and wellness lifestyle magazines, including Men’s Health, Prevention, Women’s Health, Runner’s World, Bicycling, Running Times, Organic Gardening, and Mountain Bike. Rodale also publishes highly acclaimed books on health, fitness, cooking, gardening, spirituality, nature, the environment and more.

This blog site was developed to supplement a new campaign to establish a national and then international network of CAN DO! Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers that provide expanded access to state-of-the-art development training programs.

The larger vision described at includes the Strategic Implementation Matrix for establishing thousands of local non-profit Community Empowerment Resource Centers that will provide Successful Living Skills for the 21st Century based on about 40 years of successful prototype Community Development Centers.

The latest development is the pending incorporation of Universal Stewardheirship, a new non-profit organization or perhaps a cause-oriented company based on the 4 Ps of Purpose, People, Planet and Profitability.
