Silent Partner Consulting

enabling your cooperative self interest

The risks and the rewards from creative and natural entrepreneurship are greater, and of far more value to society, than illusions of security enslaving human cogs in the social machine. - Allan R. Wallace

 

Founder's Bio

About Silent Partner Consulting:

SPC has three objectives:

1)    Develop talented and experienced leaders into independent consultants assisting small businesses

2)    Help small and start-up businesses facilitate best available techniques in management, finance, and communications

3)    Apply excess funds to charitable, special need opportunities

 

Large corporations have access to many expensive resources of outside assistance. A small business, the foundation of the entrepreneur's dream and creator of jobs, has few. SPC helps fill the support gap, enabling a small business to acquire tools essential to compete. Over the last decade a new engine to the economy has emerged, the netrepreneur. We help these start up and small businesses sort through massive amounts of data to find the information they need.

One example of no-cost and low cost assistance is Bastiat Free University; founded by Silent Partner Consulting to offer university level distance learning courses. The goal of BFU is to help business people that lack a degree find the knowledge they seek.

Let us be your silent partner.

 

The primary model for Silent Partner Consulting is to cultivate, organize, and ameliorate independent consultants, classic entrepreneurs, and netrepreneurs to support small and start-up businesses. Income beyond expenses derived from this activity will go to special situation charity or Christian outreach.

 

Current strengths include:

executive and specialist recruiting

information technology and web design

marketing design and sales training

business plan creation, evaluation, and implementation.

 

In an adjacent model, small groups of entrepreneurs, netrepreneurs, and consultants interact in a moderated incubator environment to create new enterprises.

 

 

The Goals of Silent Partner Consulting

The anticipated result is that Silent Partner revenues will cover all consultant operating expenses. Any excess will be used to support administrative expenses for SPC and its parent JrPM. At that point any SPC revenue remaining and 100% of solicited funds will be used for direct support in situations of great potential, (such as hospital construction), or great need, (as in disaster relief) or will be passed through to Junior Partner Ministries.

Allan R. Wallace trains visionaries.

 

Preamble to Allan R. Wallace's biography:

I remember as a a young man reading about a quandary that had faced Billy Graham. The young Billy wanted to promote Jesus, not himself. Graham soon realized that he could fill a tent, and latter stadiums, with people wanting to hear Billy Graham talk about Jesus; but he couldn't fill a store front with an ad that said "an unknown evangelist will speak to you about your relationship with God."

We seem hardwired to consider the source, I'll reveal Allan R. Wallace as a source.

I have avoided putting up a biography for three primary reasons. First, I did not want the emphasis on Allan R. Wallace. Second, privacy is far too rare a commodity today, it would be nice to preserve even a bit. Finally I personally distrust biographies as they seem to present only positives and those positives in the best possible light. The temptation is to keep it short by stating only the best of my rather checkered life.

There have been a few serious questions about what kind of person is behind these organizations. The suggestion was made that greater success would be possible if I bragged a bit. I think it is more likely critics than prospective students will review this -- but I could be wrong.

I have also had respected doers suggest my biography should be included at my sites. This biography is done out of respect for their hard earned insight. OK -- I've done all the following stuff (and more), but some of it was a long time ago, and some of it I no longer want to do.

 

"My own reflection distorts the view through the window." - Allan R. Wallace


Biography:

Education: degree in Psychology from the city college, degree in Business Administration with a Finance concentration from a California state university. I was accepted into a private university with full scholarship for advanced studies, and I declined. A voracious reader, I learn more each year from books and interaction with insightful people than I learned in all my years of public school combined.

Sales: Top salesman of newspapers while still in grade school, and a salesman of everything from shoes to water beds to small businesses since. Trainer, manager, mentor and tormentor in the sales field. Director of a sales and sales management school. Past member of the National Speakers Association for professional public speakers.

Business: Managed retail and direct sales organizations. Director of a computer training center. Worked in both staff and line positions from start ups to Fortune 500 companies; General manager to National sales manager. Started my own companies and charities. Retired the first time at age 35. I had less personal time when retired as I concentrated on my family, finance, and volunteer executive positions.

Finance: Senior accountant at a Fortune 500 company. Investment consultant. Successful speculator in stocks, derivatives, real estate, etc. for over twenty five years. Etcetera. Boring stuff if you are not into finance (if you are an investor check my financial site here).

Consulting: Consultant for start up and small businesses. When divorced I did a John Gault and went back to work as a blue collar hourly employee. I continued to consult with and start small businesses on the side. Started Junior Partner Ministries to support and train missionaries. Formed Silent Partner Consulting to aid in the education and development of small business owners.

Conclusion: Do you really know more than when we started this exercise? One person that had asked me for a biography was working with a Non Government Organization (NGO). He said he would like to promote BFU, "it is a wonderful concept," but his constituents would be afraid of fraud if they did not see a biography.

I personally think a fraud would write a beautiful biography, some of it even true. That would indicate a biography has little value unless you intend to research it closely. The problem seems to be that the Bastiat Free University site says what we do, and what you can do, but it doesn't say much about who we are.

You now know a bit about who I am - I hope that is a comfort.

If you want the other side of my biography, talk to my ex-wife.  Just so you don't have to look too deep to discredit me - besides the satisfying successes - my personal learning curve has included two bankruptcies and a divorce. If you need more, talk to me over a cup of coffee, when we get together we can talk specifics.  It is not me that is important - it is the ideas - think about them.

Bastiat Free University is part of Silent Partner Consulting which is part of Junior Partner Ministries. The original free university concept was to assist those that have a small business, but have never had the time to pursue a degree. The idea was expanded after discussions lamenting the availability of affordable education focused on rational learning. We therefore "Just Did It!" For a sample of BFU philosophy visit the College of Human Interaction.

"If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it." - Albert Einstein

We will not file for government tax free status, we will not seek donations from foundations, we will not pursue government grants. Thank God we will not become an NGO.

We have started free, we want to stay free. Anyone feeding at a government trough must expect to be herded, penned, branded, milked, and/or slaughtered. I can't help but believe a lean elk wandering the mountains is more fulfilled than a calf being fattened in a stall.

As I've said elsewhere, "The risks and rewards for you from creative entrepreneurship are greater, and of far more value to society, than illusions of security that enslave human cogs in a social machine."

If you want to support BFU, that would be both nice and helpful, thank you.

Your Bastiat Free University will grow faster, educate more students, and do other important stuff with extra money. We will keep going regardless. There are lots of mountains for this elk to wander.

"An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: What does happen is that the opponents gradually die out." - Max Planck, pioneer of quantum theory

Don't look for me in this biography; if you really want to meet me, look at Bastiat Free University.

You will notice we did not follow a strict format for construction of this biography. In fact our whole site is far more informal than modern education dictates. The information age is developing a freer form of communication.

Footnotes and bibliographies are being replaced by hyper links. Links can be opened in a separate tab and enjoyed or reviewed later, unlike foot notes that are seldom referenced -- except as a basis for argument. As the Cluetrain Manifesto declared: Hyperlinks subvert hierarchy.

English is a very fluid language, it is hard to read and understand an essay only 500 years old. Society is also fluid, this new age will require new organizations. Those now graduating from college are using archaic standards to please their obsolete institutions. These graduates will of course have a vested interest in maintaining the oppressive and inefficient industrial age standards they have been taught.

Essays written by new millennial kids will probably expand on the free form of blogs rather than structure dictated by educational Luddites. I expect to learn as much about evolving form from final essays of BFU students as about their grasp of the subject.

"Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation." - Bernard M. Baruch
