AmWay Forms Only A Portion Of The Career Of Dick DeVos

Like me, most of us probably know of Dick DeVos for the work he completed with the AmWay Group throughout the majority of his working life, but after completing a little research I was pleased to see this only forms a small part of the work of the Grand Rapids, Michigan native. As a member of the AmWay Group Dick spent almost four decades working with the company and brought unprecedented levels of success to the business founded by his father; I believe the six year period from 1986 onwards was the era that made the name of Dick DeVos when he increased the annual income of the international sales of the company tenfold.

 

Eventually, Dick DeVos made his way to the position of President of AmWay after proving his worth as the President and CEO of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise owned by the DeVos family at the time. My impression of Dick as an excellent business leader was only proved to be correct when his restructuring of AmWay led to even greater success than the company had achieved in the past. In 2003 I was shocked when Dick DeVos decided to step down as President of the restructured AmWay group and retire from major business dealings; however, Dick has not stood idly by, but has continued to seek out investments that interest and excite him along with his wife Betsy as the leaders of The Windquest Group.

 

Perhaps the area Dick and Betsy DeVos have become most associated with are the education reform programs they became involved in back in the 1970s when this movement was seen as being a radical group; Dick and Betsy began seeking reform in their home state of Michigan and have now spread their work across 17 states in the U.S. In my opinion the work of the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation to bring continued economic success to various parts of the U.S. will form a major part of the legacy of the couple in Michigan and beyond.

 

Josh Verne A Successful Entrepreneur – Talks About How To Be Successful In Life And Business

Josh Verne is a successful entrepreneur who has over 20 years of expertise in building and selling businesses. He is the kind of entrepreneurs who puts passion into whatever he does, and he believes this is the only way to have success in life and business.

 

The CEO of Flocku.com, Josh Verne also believes that vision as an art of finding what others can’t find or invisible to them. It was taken from a quote of Jonathan Swift. This quote has driven him through his journey to success.

 

Josh Verne has dedicated a major portion of his life to creating, grow, and trading businesses and realized that few key points in life and business drives you to successful life and business. If someone can maintain these key points, success is just a matter of time for them.

Don’t be a Boss, Be a Leader

Leaders and Bosses are the two types of management positions. A Boss utilizes his power and title to rule over, demands respect, does everything that he thinks the best. On the other hand, A leader earns respect by valuing his people before himself and uses this respect to moving the things forward by achieving goals that they set together. To be successful in life, one should become a leader, not a boss.

 

Everything should be win-win

Every deal you made should be win-win. The deal should be equally beneficial for both client and sellers. Don’t make any deal that is win-lose. A deal should be a win for the buyer, a win for the seller, a win for employees and a win for society. No matter how tricky a deal, to win for all but there is always a way to win for all. If someone sticks on this key point, the success is very evident for him, his company and his employees. This practice will boost your business, employees, and reputation of the company.

Magnises Card 101

Are you interested in a VIP social life without massive spending? Billy McFrank is offering you an exclusive credit card that will ensure that you enjoy life to the fullest. Billy is a technology expert based in New York City, and he started Magnises when he realized that there were no reliable networking communities for young people who wanted to have fun and interact with other people.

According to Crunchbase, Billy McFarland came up with the idea of starting a platform where people from different industries such as technology, fashion, and finance could connect and have fun at the end of the day. The platform was recently launched, and it has already registered many members from the New York City.

Here are some interesting facts about the card that everyone should know about:

At the moment, it is only useful to people living in New York City

Some of the individuals with the Magnises card are internationally based, but the card is only used by the people in NYC. However, the platform will soon expand to other parts of the country.

A significant percentage of the card-holders are 21-29 years old

At the moment, Magnises is comprised of young individuals, and their income or occupation doesn’t matter. These people are allowed to use special perks and add value to the lives of the members of the private club.

Members are required to pay annual fees

Since it was launched, the Magnises card is open for all people to apply. The application form is mostly filled online on the company website. A phone interview is conducted later on, and if a member qualifies, they are required to pay an annual renewable fee of two hundred and fifty dollars.

The founder of the company has a lot of knowledge in technology, and this ensures a smooth running of the activities in the platform. Members who have joined the club say that they are experiencing a good time.

Starbuck’s Adds New Livio Bisterzo Product

Starbuck’s is the biggest storefront coffee retailer in the United States. This is something that most people can just guess on their own because of the companies ubiquitous presence on the retail landscape of America. A lot of people don’t realize that the company is also a giant in the food retail business. That makes sense, though. You need to have something to go with all that coffee.

One area where the retail giant is trying to expand its food offerings is the grab-and-go type snacks that people love. These are especially effective at a store like Starbuck’s because of the nature of the business. Most people are either purchasing there in the drive thru or doing a quick “in and out” in the store. This means that this type of snack is perfect for that business model.

On top of that, Starbuck’s customers are health-conscious a lot of the time. This is why Starbuck’s is looking for a great quick snack that also has great implications when it comes to health. They seem to have found their latest product to fit that mold in Hippeas.

Hippeas are a puffed snack that is chickpea based. It is a light and quick snack that is sold in bags and is easy to eat while on the go. Another great aspect of this food product is that it can fit just about any diet plan or dietary concern that just about anyone has. The snack is gluten-free, vegan, and it is even kosher. This means just about anyone can eat it safely.

It also packs a pretty good nutritional punch given its size. Each serving of the snack product contains about 100 calories. It also provides the consumer with 3 grams of protein. The snack is light and healthy and even has some good nutritional value to the consumer as well. These are all things that Starbuck’s was looking for in its next snack product.

Livio Bisterzo is the CEO that is behind the idea for this snack product. He was looking for something that would fit the exact mold that was described earlier that Starbuck’s was looking for. He had been in the food industry in some capacity for the 7 years in the Los Angeles area. He had the idea for this about a year ago.

He has hit the mark with his latest offering. The snack will be offered in over 7,000 Starbuck’s stores nationwide when it hits shelves. It will be offered in two flavors; Vegan White Cheddar and Far Out Fajita.

Securus Provides Facts & Figures to Thrash Global Tel Link’s Misleading And Redundant Press Releases

Global Tel Link (GTL) has stirred a brawl with Securus Technologies, a leader in the provision of justice technology solutions, over a fresh round of allegations. With Global Tel Link (GTL) considering Securus Technologies as a rival in their field, it has thrown attacks in the way of Securus Technologies. The attacks are in the form of baseless and misleading press releases against Securus Technologies to try to discredit them.

 

In light of the attacks,Securus Technologies responded with their press releaseissuing corrections to the GTL press release. According to Securus Technologies, GTL’s press release is misleading at best and fraudulent at worse.

 

The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard A. Smith, was baffled by GTL’s approach. According to him, releasing misleading press releases is an immoral practice for a firm and uncalled for. Another baffling occurrence to Mr. Smith is GTL’s insistence on filling baseless patent litigation suits against Securus Technologies. According to him, the lawsuits are a liability and don’t serve in the firm’s best interest as they cost millions of dollars to pursue and would take many years in court.

 

Mr. Smith continued that Securus will fight back to defend themselves from the attacks. He claimed that it was vital for Securus to stand firm amidst the litigations while asserting their patents in response to the attacks. Mr. Smith pointed to Securus’s superiority in the industry by indicating their extensive patent portfolio. He went ahead to challenge GTL to a technology bake-off challenge as a constructive way to settle differences as opposed to issuing damaging press releases. GTL, however, are yet to respond to the challenge indicating fear they will lose.

 

 

Adam Goldenberg Talks About Pivoting Companies

Adam Goldenberg, the co-founder of JustFab was interviewed by VatorTV’s Bambi Francisco to talk about how his company got started, and he was asked about flash sales and pivot companies. On flash sales, Goldenberg said they were never a way that JustFab was going to operate because they did not match the strategy that the company was built on. And on pivoting, Adam Goldenberg mentioned other companies that changed their models and got rid of features as part of new trends, but Goldenberg said JustFab would never get rid of features such as VIP membership when their customers were happy with it. To Goldenberg, the key to staying successful is not fixing something that isn’t broken.

Adam Goldenberg has built quite a company at JustFab, a women’s clothing line with sister companies at Fabletics, FL2, Fabkids, and Fabmen. But he didn’t start out as a fashion guru. He actually started out as a gaming marketer, building a website called Gamer’s Alliance at age 15. Gaming enthusiasts loved it, and so did Intermix Media who Goldenberg sold the company to. Intermix Media even hired Ressler at only 18 to join their company, and he became the youngest Chief Operating Officer at age 20.

When NewsCorp bought out Intermix Media, Goldenberg and Ressler decided to start their own business, and Intelligent Beauty became their first enterprise on Zimbio. After trying different products, the two decided to go into women’s fashion and JustFab got started in 2010. Goldenberg wanted this company to be different than any other fashion company currently out there, so they decided to cut down on advertising costs and use social media as its marketing tool. The outfits they brought to the company were very stylish, but also affordable compared to the high prices at Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren.

Josh Hannah of Matrix Partners became interested in this company and helped raise venture capital, and later on Passport Capital also contributed at http://www.forbes.com/sites/tomiogeron/2011/09/21/former-intermix-coo-raises-33m-for-fashion-brand-justfabulous/. Model Kimora Lee Simmons came to the company, impressed with JustFab’s business, and brought millions of twitter followers to the company as well. More celebrities such as Kate Hudson and her brother Oliver also came on to help market it, and JustFab has grown in popularity in just 5 years. It recently was evaluated at over $1 billion.

Kabbalah Centre: Best Foundation Volunteer Program

Kabbalah Centre is a global organization that offers online Bible and Kabbalistic knowledge. The center has many global cities and regional study group centers. Developed by Karen Berg, the center has its headquarters in Los Angeles, California, in the United States. The Centre is the biggest global institute that is committed to spreading the Kabbalah wisdom. The center’s primary purpose is to bestow communities with the knowledge and expertise to better their survival and bring peace in the world.

The Kabbalah Centre has been put under investigation by FBI and IRS for economic elevation, particularly after its neglect of the Raising Malawi school project, which left multi-million investments unaccounted for. Besides, media criticisms have supposed that the center is opportunistic with enigmatic leaders, who lure the susceptible rich with happiness, wealth, and health promises.

The Kabbalah Centre Volunteer Program is the foundation upon which the center was put together. The center creates resources to teach students analytical methods that do not contravene with Hebrew and Jewish knowledge. The center does not proffer itself as belief option, but rather harmonizes religion. The Centre considers its globally acknowledged religious principle organization as bright collective wisdom branches. The center, hence, contributes physical locations, online and prayer services, downloads, lectures, and books.

The Kabbalah Centre teaches the wisdom of the Zohar and the original holy kabbalistic wisdom manuscripts. The center upholds Zohar and translates universal spiritual systems and the secrecy of the Bible. The Kabbalah Centre also teaches the idea of universal connection with God. The Center believes that it is only through practice and meditation of Jewish law and Kabbalah knowledge that an individual removes violent and harmful behavior, bringing peace in the society. The Centre has a broad-based, international workforce of instructors that present guidance and training to its universal community of learners. The Centre is considerate to the society. It affords students with the foundations to develop relationships and exchange thoughts with the like-minded populace to expand spiritual understanding.
