Anyone who gets married in a $100,000 sponsored wedding with 7,500 spectators in a stadium doesn’t think small.
Meet big thinker Dave Kerpen, a salesman, entrepreneur extraordinaire, and New York Times best-selling author, who at age 37 is founder and CEO of Likeable Local, a social media company for small businesses, and co-founder of Likeable Media, a word of mouth and social media company.
Eight years ago Kerpen wanted a big wedding, and lacking the money to pay for it proved no obstacle. Kerpen and his wife, Carrie, persuaded 1800Flowers.com, Entenmann’s, and other companies to fork over much of the cost in return for sponsorship.
The wedding venture’s success led the Kerpens to start an event company, which quickly morphed into Likeable Media, and 1800Flowers.com and Entenmann’s followed right along as clients.
Like other successful leaders, Kerpen has extra sensitive antennae that helped him recognize early on the impact of social media. Unlike the dime-a-dozen social media companies, Likeable Media and Likeable Local differentiate themselves with the concept of likeability.

"Don’t fall for the illusion that anyone else is obligated to live according to what’s important to you in any way or at any time, even if they say that they intend to. If they do, be grateful. But if they don’t, be unsurprised; they’re just being true to themselves and making decisions accordingly."

So North Carolina’s current DA [District Attorney], Phil Berger Jr has continued most cases. Berger has only tried 6 criminal cases in the past 6 years. He makes over $100,000 each year to try one court case.

Craig Blitzer, a candidate for this years DA, is fed up with Berger backing up cases. Berger’s father, Berger Senior, sets up the budget for the DA and suddenly realized he should cut DA staff for the new DA.

Melanie is another candidate for DA but she’s inexperienced and has only been involved in 2 criminal cases. Craig Blitzer has been involved in 117 criminal cases.

Blitzer will definitely become DA. He knows what he’s doing. He’s backed up by heads in Raleigh, NC. He actually cares about crime.

Went to my second political fundraiser. I knew very few people and pretty much only went for food.

My back is so much more flexible even before my back injury. Thank you to my acupuncturist and yogis that inspire 🙏
