In a world increasingly dominated by large institutions and very
specialized businesses, John Groom has taken a different path, engaging
in a wide variety of entrepreneurial ventures, always trying to find a
new and better way of creating value.
While America's major corporations have defaulted on debt and required
government bailouts, Groom has an immaculate credit record. Groom does
not seek or accept any government subsidies or grants, or SBA loans. His
media ventures are self-financed. The real estate ventures involve high
net worth equity investors, but no loans or debt.
Since 1987, Groom has focused on real estate developments and various
media ventures, primarily book publishing and web publishing. Groom's
media ventures have been recognized by CNN, USA TODAY, Reuters, Playboy,
the Boston Globe, Yahoo, Fox Business TV, and many others), To learn

subscribers. In late 2013 we expect to launch a major new web initiative,
as well as publish an exciting new book about the compatibility of
science and religion by Doug Ell.
Decisions are made very quickly, because there is only one decision
maker. We have a well-defined and time tested method of developing new
projects based on extremely low overhead and outsourcing all non-core
functions, including research, editing, web site development, graphic
design, programming, web hosting, and many others.
We have worked with hundreds of professionals, including accountants,
lawyers (contract, trademarks, intellectual property, litigation)
engineers, surveyors, and many others. We now have a number of contractors
from around the world working on the forthcoming attitudemedia web
venture. Current and past contractors have resided in the US, Canada,
Argentina, China, Bangladesh, Romania, Scotland, India, Pakistan, New
Zealand, and elsewhere.
