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?
