Dick DeVos has built a strong business reputation through his work in many different areas of the DeVos family business empire. The career of DeVos began with his working in different areas of the AmWay Group to gain business experience before he was given a leadership role in the 1980s with the group; initial successes led to Dick DeVos being given a role heading the Orlando Magic NBA franchise the DeVos family purchased in the 1990s. DeVos later returned to the AmWay Group as President and led the company through a successful period of expansion and profit. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2010/09/amway_heir_dick_and_betsy_devo.html

Posted by jakeharris - September 12th, 2015

Most people complain that there isn’t enough time in the day to do everything, but that doesn’t seem to bother Joseph Bismark who simply maximizes the time he does have to fit a bit of everything in. The leading businessman took time out to speak to asPire magazine for a feature according to Reuters about his holistic focus on health and wellbeing. It turns out that in addition to being the Director of the QI Group, he also regularly practices a vegetarian diet, reads, and follows a careful exercise regime on a daily basis.

In the article Joseph discusses how he believes that wellness and health has to be approached to include both body and mind. To this end, he makes time to work out, practice yoga, meditation, mindfulness, swim, and cycle. In the article he discusses several apps that help him with his exercise routines such as MapMyRide which allows him to track the duration, speed, pace, and calories burned during each ride.

Bismark is a revolutionary business leader known for his overwhelming sense of spirituality and the fact that he is not afraid to mix his beliefs with business. He is often referred to as dynamic and believes that every single person can find success and do extraordinary things. People simply have to focus on their mind and body wellness to get there.

Healthy Living: Good to the Last Drop

Posted by jakeharris - August 31st, 2015

Since ancient people discovered the taste and energy derived from the little coffee bean, we have been cultivating coffee plants and roasting the beans to satisfy just about any discriminating taste. It is often the first thing we reach for in the morning, and we sip on a flavorful cup of java throughout the day.

As a coffee fan, I enjoyed reading an article that was published recently on prnewswire.com. According to the article, Organo Gold established a new operation in Turkey. Organo Gold is a gourmet coffee company based out of Vancouver, British Columbia and now serves nearly forty countries. This company has flourished under its CEO, who founded it seven years ago.

Of course, Turkey is well-known for its love of coffee and established one of the world’s first coffee houses back in the 1400s. It is a cultural icon for the Turkish people, so Chua so it as a prudent investment of time and resources. According to the article, he sees the markets in Europe, Asia, and Africa united through a program Organo Gold calls the Global Footprint Initiative. Chua and his company are working globally for responsible harvesting and using renewable energy resources. He reaches out to other companies to encourage them to be eco-friendly and globally responsible.

Like most people around the world, Turkish citizens are practicing a better lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and consistent exercise. Chua hopes to take his product and enthusiasm for healthy living to the people of Turkey. Not only does Organo Gold make and sell premium coffee, but they also market their own brands of teas and personal care products.

The article mentions the fact that this special coffee comes from a blend of a certain Chinese mushroom, the Ganoderma. Ancient Chinese herbalists wrote about this mushroom and its beneficial properties. Many people enjoy the many health benefits that Organo Gold coffee offers and they love the taste.

Bernardo Chua and his team are proud to see the growth of his gourmet coffee company. In 2008, Chua founded the company as a network marketing corporation, says the article. He has won many awards, such as the Napoleon Hill Foundation Gold Metal. His company uses multi-level marketing to get others involved in the gourmet coffee business. People are finding success in working for Organo Gold. Chua is enthusiastic about their new market in Turkey and hopes to continue to spread their love of flavorful coffee and healthy living.

Consider Handybook Cleaning for Keeping Your Home Tidy

Posted by jakeharris - August 19th, 2015

Keeping your house clean can seem like a never-ending process that takes up most of your free time and energy. To mitigate some of the time and effort required to maintain the upkeep of your home, you may consider hiring an outside service to take some of the burden off of you and your family. In fact, the digital revolution has never made it easier for those seeking to streamline their home cleaning needs.

Founded by Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua, Handybook is one of these digital applications available on the Internet that makes it a breeze for you to contract a home cleaning service, not to mention a handyman or plumber, all through your iPhone. Emulating the approach of Uber, the car ride service, Handy book operates as a virtual marketplace that facilitates scheduling and payments and connecting contractors with customers.

The application currently operates in 13 cities nationwide with four offices now opened in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Boston. The mobile app essentially seeks to remove much of the uncertainty often associated with hiring a contractor. Users simply have to input their zip code, the cleaning service required, the start time for the job and a price quote is generated that includes both tip and tax. If you find the price and contractor suitable, your credit or debit card on file will be charged to secure the service.

This approach streamlines much of the traditional approach taken by consumers in evaluating contractors. In the past, you would have to screen potential services by asking for references or seeking referrals from friends, family and/or work colleagues. Trust was and still is the chief currency, as the cleaning service will have access to your belongings.

Most cleaning services, whether contracted through Handybook or outside sources, will arrive at your property prepared to get to work with all of the pertinent supplies such as brooms, brushes, vacuums and cleaning products. At the same time, there may be occasions when a cleaning service may request to use your supplies, particularly if you make custom requests.

The Handybook app enables you to designate the areas you would like to be cleaned ahead of time in generating your price quote. In other cases, it is important that you consult with your provider to make sure they understand which rooms you want cleaned and in the manner you desire. Identify areas that require special attention because of recent spills or damage.

In terms of cost and payment, Handybook takes care off all of this before the job is contracted. If you elect to go with an outside provider, it is best to discuss with the contractor ahead of time if there will be any extra charges based on the type of residence you inhabit or special cleaning requests you desire. For example, at times extra charges may apply if your home is located in a gated community or if your home is part of a larger housing complex and there is a lack of parking available on the street.

Ultimately, whether you elect to use the Handybook app to find a cleaning contractor or go with a provider you find through other means, keep in mind these tips to ensure you receive the highest standard of service and care in maintaining the tidiness of your home.

What Makes a Good Dog Food Ad?

Posted by jakeharris - July 25th, 2015

When it comes to the food that a dog eats, humans get to choose what they buy. Pet owners need to decide just what kind of food they want to purchase for the pets in their lives. A dog is not going to watch a television advertisement and choose which food is right for him or her, so it is important that dog food brands make advertisements that are appealing to the pet owner, rather than the pet. Those in charge of advertising for pet food companies need to know just how they should be making the ads that they create, and they need to know just how to appeal to those who will be buying their dog food.

Beneful seems to know just what they need to be doing when it comes to creating a good dog food ad. This brand uses adorable puppies to draw buyers in. This brand takes something that they know the pet owners love – cute animals – and they use them to help convince the pet owner that their food is right for their pets. From a Rube Goldberg machine that features a wagon filled with cute puppies to a variety of other animal focused advertisements, Beneful seems to know just what they are doing when it comes to creating pet food ads that are worthwhile and appealing.
