LITTLE HARBOUR, Jost van Dyke, VI - It was a touching moment last evening, Wednesday June 6, 2018, on Jost van Dyke (JvD) but not because the Leader of the Opposition and Chairman of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP), Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1), spent time with JvD’s favorite son—Mr Philiciano O. Callwood aka ‘Foxy.’

It was a special moment because he met, as requested by the children themselves, with members of Foxy’s Early Learning Entrepreneurs Center (ELEC) —located in a booth next to Foxy’s Bar, where they are taught entrepreneurial skills at a young and impressionable age.

Early business lessons

Hon Fahie engaged with the children for some time on their many items for sale—from cupcakes to home-made hand chains—and even patronised the booth with a purchase from the lads.

The ELEC programme, is aimed at fostering a new generation of JvD business persons.

    Fahie, I like your “flip the pyramid” touring plan. Make your rounds and gather all the required data to develop your manifesto for the people, by the people. Don’t sell us short like those in the present government who thinks that we are all brain dead and lack the necessary intelligence to develop and advance our country. All we need is the proper leadership to unite our people so we can all start working together with a shared/unifying vision.

    Foxy’s Early Learning Entrepreneurs Center (ELEC), for example, is an ingenious concept and should be incorporated in every community in our country as well. The earlier our children learn these skills the better. This puts them at an advantage to understand how to build real economic wealth, which in turn, drives our economy on a completely different level of control. They will be able to develop a totally different mindset in their thinking on how money really works. I can share more on this, but I think you get the point.

    I have always admired Foxy’s ingenious mind, but of course, some may not agree. People like him and our ancestors, like Noel Lloyd, are not supposed clean-cut mainstream types because they are beyond the groupthink minds and are much more expansive in their way of thinking. They are visionaries, so their minds think differently. The ignorant ones from all persuasions of supposed intelligence, may even categorize them as crazy, which they are not. Too intelligent for the average minds to recognize. However, I digress.

    Getting back on point, you are doing it the rightway, which demonstrates your level of maturity this time around. The solutions you seek to move our country forward- are, indeed, with the people and not on the outside. I iterate- Don’t sell our People short.

    Building an economy on tourism when you cannot meet the basis need of the local ,most American city and small town ,have the same national chain as each other's,.In the Virgin Island where. you only have a Kmart and no other major competitive store like Walmart ,which can supply the needs of Islander,Kmart days may be numbered in the Virgin Island,they are liquidation,stores left and right,they close a Kmart and Sears store in our city ,not because they not profitable,but was a business decision,without any store like Kmart,where the Island people get supplies,all supplies and good come from the mainland US,banks catering to corporate crooks ,will never spread the wealth to the massive,their is not one major American bank branch,having them could make people move to island close to their money
