Friends, I’m getting the hang of this blog thing, I think. I have been collecting interesting news items and reading more about what makes a PWAC. Someone recently asked me about whether “PWACINESS” is actually a new idea or not. Haven’t “elites” always existed?

It’s a good point. My view is that while there always have been the elites in societies they were traditionally what I would call hereditary elites. Where monarchies existed, the elite came from the loins of the so-called royalty. In our culture, our elites came for the families of our richest citizens, many of whom EARNED their wealth in the entrepreneurial scrum of 19th Century America.

Today, elites (PWACs) will come from the ranks of the SMART. If you have the SKILLS, ATTRIBUTES, ATTITUDES, and INTELLECT to add value, companies and organizations will want, NO –NEED you regardless of where you come from.

The Talent Shortage may possibly do for people what BILLIONS of DOLLARS in spending and legislation have thus far failed to do. Create equality of opportunity for all…well, ALL that are willing to invest the time and energy it takes to cultivate these important skills.

It brings the question: Can ANYONE be a PWAC if they work hard enough? Your thoughts?

The book finally came out last Thursday and hit AMAZON.COM on Tuesday, May 26.

I must say that it is pretty thrilling to see your name on the cover of a book. I guess that’s one more check off on the bucket list.  I am already starting to collect errata and additions for a future 2nd edition. If anyone has any links or referrals of site or people, please post here or email privately to GMSparzo@gmail.com. That address is exclusively for my writing projects.

I also want to express my appreciation for my friends who have purchased the book. Look for news on the date for a booksigning party in Connecticut sometime in late June.

Have a great weekend.

As The PWAC Manifesto gets closer to publication I will be talking about the concepts discussed in the book and hope that readers will then engage in a lively dialog. I’ll also be using this site to gather data for a follow-up book in Fall 2009

Are You a PWAC?

January 24, 2009

PWAC, pronounced, “P-WAC” stands for People With A Clue, the title of an upcoming book by author Gregory M. Sparzo. Due out this spring it talks about the world wide shortage of high skilled value adding individuals who are critical to the success of businesses, economies and a country’s standard of living.

We’ll be talking more about it as we get closer to print date.
