"The services offered by Leo Campos Aldunez & the Community Networks Group are unique and effective, and have become a primary part of my small business network over the past 5 years. Leo is very easy to work with, prompt, personable, thorough, and most importantly for my small business, Leo gets results. My investment in Leo's services is always returned multi-fold. I recommend him to others without hesitation."

"Leo Campos is an intellectually stimulating personality who loves to engage in literary & political conversations as well as in taking action on issues of the day. Leo has used his passion and concern for political and social problems of our time to inform the public on community engagement activities which he promotes through his social e-marketing network. He has run this service very responsibly for a number of years. I have used it on many occasions to publicize my professional/volunteer activities and I have never had cause to be disappointed."

WAYFINDERS BUSINESS COOPERATIVE ® | At one time, we thought technological changes would simplify our lives. However, technology has helped create information overload. Small & medium enterprises, independent contractors, non-profits/charities, social enterprises, and civil society at-large are often unable to take advantage of tools/applications because they cannot navigate their way through the complexities of modern management science/technologies. In an effort to grasp the nuances of innumerable options, people often spend hours tumbling down the internet rabbit hole only to find themselves more confused than when they began. Instead of clarifying options, explorations leave them in a morass of information with no vision on how to implement new strategies. Instead of moving forward, even the most innovative business stalls.

ANOTHER WAY | But what if these same organizations and individuals had easier access to advanced management tools and practice? Wayfinders Business Cooperative© helps member organizations/businesses with the knowledge, support, and guidance they need to fully participate in the local economy. The cooperative offers training in, and the use of, the advanced management tools, methods/open data that make large corporations successful. Online business match-making, collaboration and innovation applications support formation of regional industry clusters. An online marketplace supports local shopping. As social enterprise, taking full advantage of both digital and face-to -face opportunities, members create a simple, yet powerful environment in which they do their greatest meaningful work with minimal stress.

COMMUNITY ECONOMICS | Members share in the benefits traditionally provided by the cooperative model: education, community knowledge, mentorship, democratic member control, and built-in resiliency. Using the power of community, they create an intelligence matrix to which each contributes and from which each draws on a routine basis. By contributing their knowledge to the cooperative, members help others while helping themselves and the entities they represent and/or are associated with. Wayfinders Business Cooperative© is in the early stages of development. Should this opportunity interest you, get in touch.

SERVICE & COMMUNITY - As usual, we remain at your service. YOU and the individuals & communities we serve remain at the center of what we do. We thank you for your support and welcome your feedback; if we can be of assistance don’t hesitate to get in touch. We invite you and your friends/colleagues to subscribe to our Infomail Newsletter – and, if you appreciate this site, “like” and share it via your social networks as you see fit. You can also now follow TCNG on Twitter! Have a safe & enjoyable winter season, wherever you may be.
