98-2 Enterprises, LLC was formed from a powerful concept taught by the renowned financial and tax consultant Joe Gandolfo. Many years ago he personally planted the seed that success in life, personal, public service, business, and otherwise was centered around understanding people, their needs, wants, ideas, desires and supporting them to their full potential.

The anchor of 98-2 Enterprises LLC came from decades of watching these principles at work in the world of business, public and private service. People anchored in the skills and values will take us forward in the transition from Industrial Age into the Information Age and beyond.

Values are centered around the belief people are the greatest asset in any endeavor. Needs, wants, and ideas are executed effectively from anchored values and principles. Accomplishment comes through peopleā€¦. 98% people and 2% product knowledge.


As we move forward in life we can be tossed to and fro in many complex directions. This can expose our personal infrastructure to challenges seemingly beyond our capacity.

Stan Davis states "when the infrastructure shifts, everything rumbles."

We can make a successful transition from the Information Age to what many are calling the "Age of Wisdom" using the anchors of Principles and Values.

These two incorporate Faith, Hope, Honesty, and Integrity to form a chain-like link that anchor and support mind, body, heart, and Spirit.


In Michael Abrashoff's book, 'It's Your Ship' he reflects principles of good management....tugboat like style...against weaker management styles.

Management that fosters growth keeps people and processes from running into the shoals.

The concept of "Tugboat Management" is designed to provide support, reliability, focus, and unity in an individual, group or organization.
