That would be a shame. She is a beautiful steel-hulled vessel perfectly laid out to serve children and families in Long Island Sound. Her shallow draft with 8-foot center board means she'll go to wind as easy as she tucks into shallow ports like the Connecticut River. Her 17 staterooms could serve 34 guests at a time for week-long cruises from Groton to Bridgeport and back. Full Story

    Have We Separate From Reality? - The month of June was a good one. The S&P 500 was up over 6% for the month, but essentially just took back most of what it lost in the month of May (May was down over 8%). What we are seeing is the constant daily battle between bad news (unemployment, political battles, Fed actions, low GDP numbers, historically low interest rates, European meltdown, etc.) and good news (unemployment, political battles, Fed actions, historically low interest rates, European resolution?, etc.). Do you see the point I am making? Sometimes the same issues fall on both sides of the fence – often on the same day, and it creates this untethered whipsaw in the markets (known as volatility). Not a day goes by when we don’t read competing opinions (disguised as “expert” guidance from financial journalists with no real experience in finance) on the state of the market and its future.

From our SBA resource partner network to our high-growth accelerators affiliated with the Start up America Partnership, we need your help identifying the best mentors across the spectrum.
