Businesses small or large can achieve a multitude of marketing and philanthropic objectives with one well-conceived campaign, Non-profit organizations with their business partners can have the needed funds to complete their organization mission.

Most people think of wills as the only way to transfer property upon death, however, there are several instruments one can use to transfer property to loved ones upon their passing. First, let’s understand that even I you do not execute a will your property will pass to your heirs – despite the commonly held belief that property will pass to the “state” the law of intestacy requires that property pass to your “heir(s)-at-law”.
If you want your estate to pass to certain people then you must place those directions in writing. If you put your desires in writing you can distribute your estate to anyone you wish. Every given week, I have people that come into my office, for reasons all their own choose to give their estate to charities which is perfectly acceptable given that their desire to do so is placed in writing.
Many families residing in Menifee have questions about the history of the place they now call home. The families that have lived here their whole lives or have family roots here have stories of how it all began. Centrally located in southwestern Riverside County, Menifee is rich in history. Dated back to the 18th century, the land was originally inhabited by the Luiseno people, specifically the Pechanga band. The area fell under the Spanish rule surrendered by Mexico to the United States in 1850 as a result of the Mexican-American War. Mining during the early 1880's brought a discovery of significant quartz lode by miner Luther Menifee Wilson, which is where Menifee received its name. During the 19th century, farming was also common among the valley. Gold, silica, feldspar, and pink quartz were all part of the land. Families such as the Kirkpatrick, Newport, and Zeider's all followed and would become part of the Menifee history.
Around the early 1960's, a contractor from Phoenix, Arizona by the name of Delbert "Del" Eugene Webb, had a concept of designing an active 55+ retirement community in the middle of the area of Menifee. This became a CDP (census designated place), meaning an area of concentrated population identified by the United States for statistics, not legally incorporated under laws. Del being a big fan of golf, having played with Bing Crosby, Howard Hughes, Bob Hope, and Robert and Barry Goldwater, designed the master planned community of Sun City with two golf courses, two recreation centers, and retail shops. It consisted of a 4 square mile mix of residential and commercial activity. He built other "Sun City" communities with the same concept in Arizona, Nevada, and Florida in the 1970's and 80's. The average household in Sun City, CA in the year 2000 was 2-3 people. With 8,750 households the population was 17,773.
We don’t start a business to hire employees, we start a business to fill a need and provide a service.
So many people have big dreams and they don’t understand it takes a team to accomplish the bigger goals. Finding the right people can make all the difference but setting the correct expectations can make or break a business. If the expectations are too low, nothing gets done but if you push people to new heights they never thought they could reach, the business and the employee can grow. This improves moral with everyone involved and the customers will notice a positive direction for the company.
Delegation is very important when a person has a team to rely on. Sure the main person can do everything better than anyone, but the head guy can not do all the things all the time. Therefore, proper encouragement and training can help the employee to not only become proficient at what they do, but they can get so good at it they become the teacher. Henry Ford was called out for not knowing everything about his company, and he simply stated that he did not have to know everything; he just had to know the people to ask everything to.

MENIFEE –Beginning April 1, lost or abandoned animals found in Menifee and not reunited
with owners by the end of the day will be sheltered at the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus.
Currently, Menifee contracts with the Ramona Humane Society for animal sheltering. At the beginning of March, the Ramona Humane Society announced they could no longer provide sheltering services for the city. In response, the city has contracted with the County of Riverside to shelter animals while maintaining the existing arrangement with Animal Friends of the Valleys to provide animal control services.
Animal Friends of the Valley will continue to respond to animal control calls and collect stray or lost animals. Throughout the course of the day, they will attempt to return lost pets to owners by using microchip information or license tags. If owners are not located, the lost animals will be transported to the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus, located at 581 S. Grand Avenue in San Jacinto., 92582.
