Michael's story is in: "Better Times Ahead: April Fool"
It ends with Agenda for American Greatness--how we get back to No. 1 again.
Saturday, March 5, 2011
Pending Book: “Better Times Ahead: April Fool - Looking Back on The Future of America.”
How can America “Win the Future” as President Obama has said we must when it has become the world’s largest debtor nation, ranks 12th among developed countries in college graduation (down from No. 1 for decades), 23rd in infrastructure in the world, and when we’re 27th in life expectancy and No. 1 in obesity, with an aging population that is pushing health costs through the roof?
“It CAN be done!” says Michael Fjetland, the author of “Better Times Ahead: April Fool - Looking Back on The Future of America.”
Michael is a Fortune-500 trained international negotiator who went from milking cows a farm in Iowa to negotiating billion dollar deals with experiences in over 50 countries. He went through a layoff during a recession and lost it all. He came back as an entrepreneur -- to negotiate international kidnapping and fraud cases in the Middle East and Europe. He became a TV terrorism analyst in Houston on 9/11, a very long way from farm life in Iowa. Now he is founder CEO of a successful ‘green’ company that saves energy, cuts solar heat and provides security for your weakest link.
His unusual life experiences fits our uncertain times. America is at a crossroads. The cry for freedom and democracy is breaking out in the Middle East after decades and, in some cases, centuries of rigid monarchs and dictators. Extremism is on the rise in all religions, not just Islam.
