CEOCFO: Mr. Feldman, what is the concept behind World Business Services?
Mr. Feldman: For the past twenty-
CEOCFO: Are you still doing that?
Mr. Feldman: Absolutely, every day. I love what I do because I can help people every day. I have no desire to retire. And, neither does my wife Linda. We met at University at Cal State Hayward which is now Cal State University, East Bay. We have been married 48 years and I belong to a club of men that are married to women that are too good for them. It is a large club. Linda got her graduate degree in child development and besides doing the books for our company she is a substitute teacher in the Petaluma school district. I always tell people what Linda does with children in helping them is ten (10) times more important than anything our company does in business.
CEOCFO: What is your business model today and how did you get there?
Mr. Feldman: My business model now allows me to do business with any business or organization no matter who they are in helping them save money or increase sales. As for how we got there, after Linda and I had graduated Cal State Hayward where I did my Undergraduate degree in mass communications and my Master’s degree in counseling, I then taught interpersonal relations and personal growth at Chabot Junior College. After a couple of years of counseling, I really enjoyed helping parents and kids. However, I was drained. At that time Linda and I were traveling around the country and I was being sponsored to play tournament bridge professionally. So, I decided I would make a living of that. I traveled for many years and went on to represent the United States in the World Championships of Tournament Bridge three (3) times and headed up an organization of professional bridge players. It was a one-
At that time, there were some product managers from Rockwell as well as bridge player friends of mine who asked me to be part of their startup venture to help Pacific Bell develop their packet switching network, where one of the applications would allow people to play Bridge over the Internet. I got my business acumen from a guy named Roger Free, who developed the high-

When I sold Hotel Connections in 1994, I started World Business Services, whose business purpose was to identify one-
CEOCFO: Is there something you would consider vital when starting a business?
Mr. Feldman: If they have never run a business, I would tell them that before they decide to spend money or go find investors or friends and families that will invest in them, it is important to seek out free resources. The SBA has a great organization free service called SCORE.org that will help them with their business plan. They would also be well advised to seek free counseling from experienced business professionals before they launch their business.
CEOCFO: Can you give us an example of how you helped a business?
Mr. Feldman: From the refund standpoint there are businesses that do not know they are entitled to refunds. We have identified that anybody that has accepted credit cards can get a refund on fifteen years-
What makes us different is we have the ability to offer mid-
CEOCFO: We came across a press release about the California certification regarding the government. Would you tell us about that and why now?
Mr. Feldman: I was approached last year by an organization called NorCal PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Center). They talked to me about getting certified to have our programs so that we could be a government contractor. That was unique for us. This year we got certified by the State of California and we are excited about it because typically the government is looking for procurement.
What makes us different there is because we are offering cost savings. For example, we can facilitate free equipment of a new phone service system along with cost savings on phone and internet bills. We can also facilitate deployment of free green energy equipment for any client whose electric bill is over $10,000 per month. We can deliver all of those things without any capital expenditure of debt service. We are very excited to help the government save money which is new.
CEOCFO: How do people find World Business Services?
Mr. Feldman: The easiest way is they can take a look at a one-
CEOCFO: What is ahead for World Business Services?
Mr. Feldman: Back when I was running Hotel Connections in the 1980’s, I helped Citicorp develop their global multi-
What I really want to be able to do is find someone who is socially conscience who can work with me on developing WorldBusiness.com globally to create American jobs and to really put together a new global B2B portal that will benefit everyone but particularly provide safe business transactions and payment solutions on a global basis over the internet. I am not the person that is going to be the vortex in bringing that opportunity to the marketplace. It is more of a matter that I need to partner with somebody to take that piece of my business, which is a stranded asset, and develop WorldBusiness.com for the greater good. I know that my company even though we own that domain name, could help a lot of people going forward by finding either a visionary business person or company, particularly now that internet business has been exploding on a global basis.
