D&J TELECOMMUNICATIONS USES CURRENT IDEAS FOR PROFIT VENTURES

 DETROIT, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The idea for D&J Telecommunications was created by Bartram Jones and Harrison H. Dickerson III.
 Jones and Dickerson work as tanker truck drivers for one of the major oil companies in the country. Both men had a vision of starting their own business. They accomplished this in 1986, and the company became incorporated on Dec. 18, 1990. Jones and Dickerson believe they have found the perfect way to fulfill their business goals through the use of 900 number services. D&J Telecommunications is an information provider, and is intended to be both informative and entertaining to the general public.
 Before starting D&J Telecommunications, Jones and Dickerson attended a business seminar at the Pontchartrain Hotel in Detroit. There were a number of speakers endorsing several products. As they listened to each speaker, they began to formulate their own concept of how to be successful in one of these chosen fields. They decided to use 900 numbers.
 Jones and Dickerson saw an opportunity to improve upon an existing market by bringing insightful information to the public at large. They closely examined the information to see if the public needed access to it. They also evaluated potential information products according to their own strict criteria.
 D&J Telecommunications takes information in its current form and repackages it in a more marketable form. The substance abuse number provides information on alcohol use and abuse, hallucinogens (cocaine, heroin, marijuana), and depression. The pet care number provides information on breeding, contraceptives, feeding, cleaning, illness, moving and traveling.
 D&J Telecommunications believes that hobbies or existing ideas have the potential to be good business ventures. It's as easy as picking up the phone. The company has several 900 numbers that are available through joint venture, rent, or lease.
