Eric Pulier: Much More Than a Series of Accomplishments

Eric Pulier is a Los Angeles, California-based entrepreneur, computer technologist, published author, editor, technical genius, public speaker for premier technology conferences the world over, a time and money donating philanthropist and a Magna Cum Laude Harvard graduate (1988). He’s founded and co-founded over fifteen companies. These include Akana, Desktone, People Doing Things, ServiceMesh and vAtomic Systems. One of these (this year) sold for an incredible $350 million.

Just a portion of Pulier’s skill sets include Cloud computing, leadership, networking, executive management, business start-ups and strategic partnerships. His curriculum vitae is amazing. What some may not know about Eric Pulier is that he also owns a restaurant and a nightclub.

However, business phenom Eric Pulier is much more than a series of accomplishments, accolades and impressive titles. When one looks past all of this, one sees a man who is guided by simplistic, yet critical and somewhat spiritual ideals. He knows the importance of maintaining a positive mindset, of surrounding himself with those of a similar mindset, how to take something very small and make it really big and why it is so important to give back to others, in a meaningful manner. He is a man who lives what he believes to be true.

Pulier is also a family man. He’s a father and has four children. It is clear, while simply glancing at the organization’s for which he has assisted and given-to, in some manner, that he is also passionate about the needs of others, children in particular. The breadth of one man’s benevolence is unknowable.

Effort to Replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 Bill

There is a campaign under way to replace the face on the $20 bill. It was started by a group that is not too happy with the fact that there are no U.S. bills with a woman on them. There is the Sacajawea dollar coin, but dollar coins have never gotten much traction with people. This dollar coin is at least gold in color, which was better than the earlier attempt at a dollar coin that was silver colored and that people kept mistakenly giving away as quarters. However, bills are where the real value in money is, and that’s what we reach for when paying for just about anything. The campaign to replace Andrew Jackson’s face on the $20 bill is down to four finalists: Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt and Wilma Mankiller.

All of these women have achieved some level of fame for their work in trying to help advance civil or human rights. That is what makes them stand out to Dr Jennifer Walden and countless others. What’s more, the face of Andrew Jackson is one that definitely should be replaced by someone else.  He famously orchestrated the trail of tears march in which the Cherokee Indians were removed from their land and forcibly relocated. He did this despite the fact that these Indians took him to court, and the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in their favor. In an unprecedented act, Andrew Jackson simply ignored the court order and moved the Cherokee anyway.
