Background on StreetSmartDirect.com
StreetSmartDirect.com compiles and tracks a comprehensive collection of articles about individuals from all walks of life who overcame adversity and achieved success. The intent is to share insight on individuals who have used adversity as a driving force to strengthen their resolve and about those who influenced or inspired them. The site is designed to provide direction to help individuals find the determination and inspiration to carve their own path toward success.
The articles reinforce the idea that everyone faces adversity and that success has little to do with physical or intellectual gifts if one can find the determination, perseverance and streetsmarts. In sharp contrast, the road is littered with talented underachievers who squandered their potential through lack of effort.
StreetSmartDirect.com has also partnered with major brands of manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to offer the most competitive prices on books, movies, video / audio downloads, music, games, simulation and more. The site is open to virtually any source of products or services that are information-driven, knowledge-driven or digitally based.
The StreetSmartDirect shopping experience is totally user-driven. Users are able to navigate and select from a vast array of major brands and discount distributors within this virtual online mall, or to just enjoy, be entertained and enlightened by the content.
