Finding new career excelling in your current career except -- also we'll have a special report from the Detroit auto show -- Gary gasoline once again today.
He's in the General Motors area talking about a car that's not a -- That's gonna have the volt engine -- it and I wonder if it has anything to do disappointing -- sales.
Nonetheless let's kick off -- accelerator at Allan hall here in studio.
Joining us sunset you know you have a statistic that that just blew my mind actually just put it on.
On the chat -- half a million new businesses are started in the United States every single month or six million.
A year that's -- it's amazing number that is yeah I didn't realize that many how successful.
Number in any.
-- 21% of those right actually get to five year -- -- successful business that you yourself have.
Been successful in many of those attempts and contributing to others attempts as well that's true I've had forbidden failures along the panel that started ten companies myself.
I still less than half I felt but the successes much bigger than a loss since -- -- -- they better be my wife would be unhappy I had.
-- -- you know what are the telltale signs that a business can work.
The number one indicator for me is there's a huge marketplace where they're going to be lots of customers who have a compelling need to buy that product right.
The reason -- on the show today is you that your columnist for Forbes and your latest column sparks.
About firing your -- and your article -- kiss your busted by.
Wonder -- that.
Well I think there's a couple reasons one there are a lot of employees were very unhappy with their their managers and they are looking for something else to do.
And so we're suggesting to them and today's economy we need more people started businesses -- they'll hire people there a lot of people who are unemployed.
And -- -- -- are the ones who will hire the people of America.
-- small businesses on the back by the economy they create the bulk of the jobs.
-- what we have seen and this is true in the statistics from the government.
Is that so many workers are getting frustrated in it not being able to find -- job.
Well on the job that they want that they're giving up and then telling the government that -- employee.
Doing something on their home but does that really qualify as a good Johnson.
And then you know there are so many people underemployed.
And -- out there and they're struggling to find something that will pay their bills so sort of a mixed thing into.
Yeah -- -- totally out of work this summer -- Yes and you know do you think that we should stop saying just be happy to have a job and really make sure that you.
Like your job and are happy in your job.
You know I think we also lose about two million people a month who quit because -- don't -- -- -- Two million people quit their jobs a month.
A month because they don't like that cost right.
And so they might already have been looking for work and says they get going until you wash the doctor on the way but people are so dissatisfied.
They're not in -- are totally miserable and their jobs two million people.
That's hard to imagine because the job market still pretty tough it's getting better but it's not like -- just snap your fingers in every hired -- -- have -- People -- looking and him up -- doesn't jump.
There -- a recent survey it's showing that 60% of people would take a better box over a pay increase.
Really well I think so give me the money -- humbled that I don't think.
You know as I look at the factors that keep people engaged in happy.
That the -- -- -- -- not number one if they wanna be happy at work doing things that they like to do what defines happiness -- happiness is.
Fulfillment that they cents a are almost -- -- hand I think I can do a good -- matter.
But when a major steps micro manages or doesn't let them -- things doesn't provide resources people get to be very happy quickly.
So why is being on -- -- good for your career in the grand scheme of year.
-- -- Well if you're going to be a notch or it's a lifelong journey it's not something that you kind of -- from corporate backed up -- her back you don't do that one introductory offer forever.
And so it's getting into learning and growing making mistakes fixing it and keeping it going so mine are ten times I've done and I didn't want to work in corporate America.
Did you work in corporate America never never know I know we -- highlight your successes so you have -- venture capitalist and ten.
Different companies one of them being skull candy current and an Angel investor in forty.
So you're -- money to work.
I am and what's happened is a company that I -- that I sold that took that welcome defending give it back.
And you give it in two companies who could grow.
And so I'm sort of a remote camera I'm helping people get to the next stage so that they can grow their businesses and I provide cash for them.
Yes and -- is still grow America is -- -- if -- founder of that.
As well as managing director correct -- can you tell me about that stuff.
I won't go pro America has a specific mission of just helping people all across the United States starting earlier than -- what will hire people.
And it's up a program that were offered for free to everybody United States who wants to learn.
To start -- billions.
So that that's kind of one component of what I do and that's about giving back right as a venture capitalists that's an assignment I have day after day and I'm managing director of that Mercado -- commerce -- partners which is really about fining companies.
That can accelerate their growth and -- Right and what are some tips to his finding here on business to me -- -- -- or serial print -- yeah.

There's the builder product first and then they go for a customer and they fail most of the time.
He should sell your product rebuilt.
Yeah -- everybody says that sell it market and make it.
That that's exactly it and I see too many people who make this shiny object and now they run out and try to sell myself so its first call have an idea but we'll talk to customer.
And you've got many many times then build -- and then -- probably much function so.
That's that's -- -- point -- -- I guess people are scared at the end results.
Might not be perfect so they won't be able to sell it but you might have the perfect product but no no market.
President Thad -- most of the time.

So really some very something very basic and and I know I have my first -- email address which is actually -- AOL address but I study is it that might.
My personal address but it's not -- not be a good idea for potential employers because it and identifying me in the right way.
A possible in all self -- -- it's really good idea to have eight email address specific to your job search and so -- for instance if you drop to if you dropped -- -- LEV email address.
Or if you were on if you used a provider like lets say Comcast store AT&T -- your email address and you changed it.
Then what are you gonna do a year from now when.
-- employers -- workers may be trying to contact you and their emails are bouncing.
And cracked so what are some tips and things that you should never ever ever include -- email address when -- sending out resonates.
Well other than the obvious that it -- the really obvious stuff.
On the sexy mama went to trees not -- -- stuff -- data we're all about you drew about your drinking habits.
And he laughed but a lot of people's -- that is -- email addresses and they don't -- -- separate one for their job search -- -- but.
Some things not to do would be.
Don't put your professional on it.
Engineer 123 because nobody knows who you are employers when they're searching for -- Miller searching for you by your name not by your profession.

I'll get -- Kind.
Some some of the things that you you -- might not want to include -- you were.
For your email address.

Com Gmail or Hotmail account one that can survive.
If you change your provider if you change you were.

C -- team and I Yahoo!.
The -- lines on the but in this is kind of obvious but I guess a lot of people.
Think maybe we should just you know -- Lauren Dotson -- -- at foxnews.com that's obviously my email address.
As -- yeah looking to work somewhere else I should never include that email address because then fox one -- right or another job.
Think is -- reading the outlook people might be thinking normally Don that he announces they'll see the responses instantaneously but that's a dumb idea.
-- not only would what would foxy it but your next employer would see it and think wow.
If they're using a work email this -- isn't working email address which is really were a property of the property of your employer.
If they're using that to be able to search for another job one it's not very Smart but number two.
Would they be does that mean they're searching for a job on work time and should I be concerned -- -- next employer that they -- to detonate.
Right right you know some of our viewers are making fun of me right now filled.
Johnny -- says line check Terry AOL mail while listening to compact discs.

Excellent first name the best thing -- first name last name.
In some kind of combination if you can't get it.
A first name last name because it's like John Smith.
Use -- period in between period between first and last even -- dash -- the numbers afterwards just to be able to get first name last thing because that's how your searched for.
I agree that this is where I have to challenge you it's it's a basic obtained there's got to be seven million.
You know what if someone writes your name -- it you know they do -- and seven underscore and another Roberts it's getting.
Getting that even Alan and -- -- you don't respond to them.
Well if that's the case.
And if you worried about your that's a good point if you're worried about your name being too common then maybe you can say Robert Smith engineer.
Because -- if you if you're applying for an engineering job that's -- a way to be able to a way to maybe be able to differentiated if you're concerned that your name is too common.

At least a half for everyone is when you wake up in the morning your -- -- sinking ever thought of being who you are.
And doing what you do that you come brilliantly a life as you -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Could almost go down to your knees and in -- entry gratitude of the tremendous good fortune and that's been bestowed on you.
And everybody should lead in life where they feel that we most of the time -- -- all the time.
Okay -- have a positive attitude maybe we should wake up in the morning and think about all the good things about our jobs rather than being so quick to complain.
That -- have too many of us get up in the morning and the domain in the occupied immediately as almighty god there's too much to do what I don't have enough time to do it all that's not a very nice place to be.
Now RA let's start with.
This first if they get because -- found this one the most surprising out of all of them you say do nothing for half an.
Out -- Do not think this is actually one of the toughest pixel -- this that person's take my program fine.
Because what happens is we -- -- -- more -- going on -- it's all the time I call it mental chatter.

But a recent didn't unit wilders is will be behave as if the boot order will be around us personally -- -- conviction that -- you -- -- -- that it doesn't while we're on the son -- -- around us personally.

There's -- innings I consider that and not -- and then -- have -- make a list of all the people you blame for the bad things and it happened to you.
-- -- -- Have a tendency to think that others to do things to us and we tend to personalize it and see if they did it too harm me in some way.
And a lot of other things that get people guerrilla to work on in my program gators realize that bushels are always acting in what do you think he is they've received so entrance.
When they're acting in that they're perceived so they're -- they sometimes do things which me -- -- do you.
Bar which you think may adversely affect you they're not being militias that are being evil -- -- to get -- they simply doing what they think they need to do in order to improve the lives and somebody and you happen to be collateral damage.
So if you recognize that everybody does this including yourselves maybe especially yourselves.

Any added to what you have to do in order to -- just -- from those balls that balls will be adverse consequences.
But you don't get right -- audit is simply say that's the way it would works.

I think Gary gasoline joining us now from the Detroit auto show you our winds and the vice president of Cadillac is global hey Gary.
They had -- you do and you know back in 2009 Cadillac introduced to converge concept.
Here at the auto show it was a Cadillac version of the Chevrolet Volt well this is -- the production version of that now -- the Cadillac.
ELR -- extended range electric luxury coupe with me now is Bob Ferguson the global head of -- like you know back then.
A lot of people are saying.
The -- should have been a Cadillac is the high cost of via technology involved maybe that would have been a better way to start trickle down the -- they worked out the way it did it mean if -- -- have a little.
About first you know the -- is number one in consumers' satisfaction and it's a tremendous vehicle and it's doing great.
This is a much different vehicle it's a natural progression for us with the technology we take it to a luxury consumer.
The research shows that the receptivity for a luxury vehicle that is environmentally sound is very high.
Really not too many of these gentlemen the faster car was the only other.
Plug in luxury car right now tell -- some of the features on this that are unique to this is opposed to the ball so it.
The the wheels are much bigger they're twenty inch wheels on this it's wider.
The drive train has been tuned.
To put a little more -- and power into it if you sit in this car and drive it.
It'll put you back in -- -- the handling is very tight so it feels like a luxury car.
With a little bit of an overtone of us 42 to about an economy car.
No this is not an economy car this is a true luxury car with a propulsion system that's very good for the environment.
It's going to be hitting the road on September 2014 or before -- -- -- quite fortunate in January of next year January Michigan -- on the same assembly line as the volt we'll build it right here in Detroit at our hand transplant.
Any projection -- low volume for this blue selling a lot of in this -- volume car.
This this car will be exclusive will only make so many for so long.
So that consumers interest that they should step up by this right away I know -- haven't -- price yet -- -- -- is a 40000 dollar car I'm guessing with all the leather and the active suspension at all that this gonna cost quite a bit morbid.
How much can we expect this might -- -- -- we haven't decided on pricing but this will be prices a luxury cars.
It it'd as the nicest interior I think in the entire line it is a luxury vehicle also the pricing will be different in the -- it's also been helped spearhead.
-- growth abroad.
No question about it we'll take this vehicle to.
Markets where we do very well like China today and it.
It'll also be a growth -- for us as we enter the markets Bob Ferguson global hotel like thanks for talking to us big show here for General -- -- got this you've got the -- that.
Some kind of show here -- right.
Everybody's talking about the Corvette I have a good question about the talent clr.
-- there -- only making a limited number is that correct.
Let's just say they haven't said -- many though but expected in the thousands probably not the tens of thousands.
To keep it secret and experience.
For us and unique -- Gary thanks for your reporting today and yesterday.
-- All right that's -- -- -- right now we -- two million people -- month quit their jobs because they don't like their manager would you quit -- job over of that box this is what you said.
