Mack was born in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, on December 7th, 1919 to Charles and Mamie (McClure) Roberts. He joined his sister Letha who was seven years old at the time. He died at Windsor Place Nursing Home in Coffeyville, Kansas on May 30, 2013 at the age of 93 years. When Mack was two years old the family moved to the farm three miles east of Caney, Kansas. He attended grade school at Pleasant Hill, eventually graduating from Caney High School in 1937. During his teenage years he accepted Christ as his Savior. He liked to tell about hoeing corn for ten hours at ten cents an hour! In 1940 he decided to go to California – hitch hiking part of the way. He stayed for about a year acquiring many fond memories which he has repeatedly shared. He told about working for several Safeway Stores even carrying out groceries for movie stars. He returned to Kansas and worked for Cessna and Boeing Aircraft Companies in Wichita. He was drafted into the Army but was discharged after about a year because he could not smel ...

'8 SaaS apps that are changing the way we do business': Thanks to a growing selection of Software as a Service (SaaS) apps, the mundane yet tedious activities of any business strategy can now be automated. These apps can capture the nuances of a customer’s online behavior while leaving no room for human error — why waste employee man hours on a repetitive process when there’s a game-changing app that’ll do it for you? These SaaS apps are only getting better and better. I asked a panel of 8 successful young entrepreneurs the following question: What newer SaaS do you think has the power to change the way we do business soon and why? Below are their top picks. Which of these do you use, in or out of the office? 1. Infusionsoft and OfficeAutoPilot There’s a fleet of new SaaS apps like Infusionsoft and OfficeAutoPilot that are allowing small- and medium-sized businesses to play like corporate giants.

Founder's Blog: Interviewed Annkur Agarwal, a hardcore entrepreneur whose startup just got chosen by the 500 Startups accelerator "I do love the way 500 Startups does angel investing. Pankaj Jain, Dave McClure, Paul Singh - they understand angel investing and internet businesses. It is hard to find that in India"
500 Startups appears to be on a mission to take over the world.

TC Fridays: And you thought Dave McClure was only a smart mentor! Recently, five Indian startups made it to the 6th batch of Dave McClure’s accelerator and seed investment fund 500 Startups.

Directed by McClure himself, the video is a spoof on Macklemore’s Thrift Shop with rapping from the startups themselves (oh yes!). Check out the video below and tell us if Indian startups were to do it, whether they would mess it up, or like McClure mentions in the video, make it F*g awesome. Share your comments below.
