Laguna Beach, California (PressExposure) April 17, 2009 -- Original Prosperity Rock: Something small that can make a big difference
Despite all the doom and gloom talk these days, there are people who see silver linings among the dark clouds. You can count long time friends Jack Harrington and Denny Freidenrich among those who believe better days are just around the corner.
The two University of Southern California fraternity brothers just launched Original Prosperity Rock, LLC -- an e-commerce web site that is right for these challenging times. After purchasing an Original Prosperity Rock, for only $7.35, visitors can explore an exclusive web page where valuable links to employment and other career related resources are listed. Harrington and Freidenrich call these links âportals to prosperity.â
Harrington and Freidenrich are experienced counter-intuitive types. Harrington, a dentist from Carson City, Nevada, conceived and built Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park -- the first and only water park in Hawaii. Last spring, the park was sold to Village Roadshow Ltd. of Australia.
Freidenrich, a fund-raising and communications consultant from conservative Orange County, California, helped raise more than $1 million for Barack Obama in 2008. He also is an accomplished writer whose commentaries regularly appear in newspapers and magazines coast to coast.
âToday, with unemployment, home foreclosures and bankruptcies all on the rise, Denny and I know how tough it can be to make ends meet,â said Harrington.
âWe also know a reversal of fortune, like being laid off your job, doesnât affect just the worker. Being unemployed impacts an entire family,â he added.
The two entrepreneurs hope their Original Prosperity Rock delivers an abundance of prosperity which, loosely defined, is interchangeable with success or wealth. It also is synonymous with economic growth and profit.
âIn ancient times, rocks like ours were offered as tributes. Nowadays, weâd like to think they lift peopleâs spirits,â Freidenrich says.
âAs you can imagine, having an Original Prosperity Rock in your pocket or on your desk is no guarantee of success, wealth or profit. With this disclaimer aside, our hope is the Original Prosperity Rock gives people confidence to keep looking for new financial opportunities, no matter how difficult times become,â he concluded.
Comparisons to another rock are inevitable. So, what are the similarities between todayâs Original Prosperity Rock and the Pet Rock of the late 1970s?
âThereâs no denying the fact they both are rocks. The Pet Rock of thirty years ago was meant to be a light-hearted, novelty item. In order to create additional value, certificates of authenticity and a book about ways to care for your Pet Rock were developed,â Harrington points out.
âToday, there is nothing light-hearted about the state of the economy, in general, or how people are dealing with the loss of their job or home, in particular,â Freidenrich adds.
âJack and I believe the Original Prosperity Rock is a tangible symbol of hope for a brighter future. The added value that the Original Prosperity Rock offers is immediate online links to employment sources, for example,â he notes.
âWe also encourage people to share their stories via our web site at [http://www.originalprosperityrock.com]. People may be down now, but they are not out. The Original Prosperity Rock is a meaningful way to express oneâs feeling that we are all in this economic tsunami together,â Freidenrich reports.
