He also cited that most investors nowadays are using similar investment tools, a factor that places the average investor at a deprived position.

NGP VAN Promotes Equality Through Political Campaigns

August 13, 2018 • divinefuel

Canvassing may seem old-fashioned in the digital age that we live in but it is still an important tool in any campaign according to the makers of NGP VAN. NGP VAN provides software solutions to assist Democratic and progressive campaigns to gather and analyze data and has been used in many of the larger campaigns since 2008. While social media has changed campaigns and social advocacy in many considerable ways NGP VAN believes canvassing door-to-door is still one of the most important tools that can possibly be utilized.

 

Canvassing is a way to be able to discuss political and social issues that are affecting communities with potential voters in a personal way that will leave an impression. NGP VAN expresses the importance of making sure that voters don’t just feel talked to like they are watching a political ad on TV. When speaking to them they should know that their input is not only welcome but encouraged as well.

By using the tools available from NGP VAN canvassing routes can be created in an effective manner that takes into account the needs and preferences of those who are doing the canvassing. There are different considerations such as if the volunteers for the campaign have access to a vehicle and which areas they are willing to work and when. By keeping track of these variables in the way that NGP VAN does it makes it possible to cover more area and also ensure that homes don’t get repeat visits.

Many people may feel like they don’t have much power when it comes to participating in the democratic process but NGP VAN aims to help ease these fears. Getting involved in politics personally can be as easy as contacting your local campaign headquarters and asking how you can help or even just taking the surveys that can be found online. Women and those involved in the LGBT community are especially urged to participate as there are many issues happening during the current administration that are impacting their lives more than others. Achieving equality is becoming more important to fight for and NGP VAN recognizes the potential impact of politics.

Customer service is a critical aspect of the culture at ATS Digital Services. Robert wanted to operate a company that treated customers with respect. He only hires people who are passionate about helping customers with their problems.

Financial Capital

One of the most significant hurdles that new business owners face is having enough capital to get started. Some people have a business plan that requires a massive capital investment. Others have to borrow money to get started. Although borrowing money is not always a bad thing, some business owners end up deeply in debt. Robert recommends that people begin a company with as little debt as possible. Avoiding debt can reduce the overall risk of starting a company.

Hiring Employees

Robert did not hire his first employee until his company was financially successful. He teaches new business owners to spend a long time looking for employees. Some business owners hire the first person who applies for a position. Quickly hiring an employee is the wrong approach for anyone who wants to manage a sustainable company.

OSI Industries: Form a Butcher Shop to Meat Market of the World

August 2, 2018 • divinefuel

OSI Industries is a global leader in the protein generation and supply sector serving foodservice distribution and restaurant industry supply chains all over the world. The company has recently celebrated a century of success, growth, and innovation and in in the middle of a historical expansion period, which will further increase its market presence and customer reach. The company operates 65 facilities in 17 countries with more facilities and further expansion into new international markets planned over the next five years. Directly OSI Industries employees more than 20,000 people with a few thousand more employed indirectly at its own upstream supply chain providers and its relationship dependent business partners. The OSI Industries of today has come a long way from its humble roots and is now the primary corporate entity in its sector.OSI started out as a simple one-man operation. Otto Kolschowsky opened a small corner butcher shop, not unlike thousands of others just like it in small urban neighborhood in major cities around the country at the turn of the 20th century.

For Otto, however, it was the truest embodiment of the old adage of being in the right place at the right time and doing the right thing that would lead to his shop growing into the multi-billion dollars annual revue generating international conglomerate that it is today. In Chicago at the in early 1900’s the meat packing and butchering industry was king, and being the latest member of a long line of butchering men in the Kolschowsky line, Otto had the kills to take advantage. His reputation grew quickly and so did his business, being expanded several times and even having to reorganize to include wholesale division. When his sons joined him a rebranding took place and Otto’s Meats became Otto & Sons. This was still not the greatest advancement to the business that was to be, that would come from someone else entirely, a clown in fact. Around the same time that Otto & Sons was enjoying its highest point thus far of its success, the franchise burger stand craze was sweeping the country. The forerunner of that tidal wave of burgers, fries, shakes, and malts was undeniable McDonalds.

Roy Kroc’s little burger stand had grown into a cultural phenomenon, and as they opened more and more restaurant, welcoming an ever-expanding system of franchise owners into the McDonalds family, they needed protein suppliers of the highest quality in the local regional markets. IN the upper Midwest that meant Otto & Sons. After a successful relationship of more than 25 years Otto & Sons, now known as OSI Industries found themselves being in the enviable position of occupying the slot of sole protein provider to the McDonalds restaurant system in more than 80% of its global markets. This led other food service providers to want to enjoy the same level of quality and service that McDonald’s had long been the recipient of and once again OSI started to grow. Today the company that started out as a one-man operation, run by an immigrant trying to make a living for his family and live the American dream, is the foremost innovator and most recognizable entity in the protein source sector. With new products, new operational methods, and more expansion on the horizon, it’s is certain that OSI has positioned itself to be the world’s meat market for many more generations to come.

Dick DeVos and his Appointment to the FAA

July 5, 2018 • divinefuel

Did you know that Dick DeVos, previous CEO and President of Amway, now works with the FAA in Washington? Last year, DeVos was inducted into the Management Advisory Council by the Federal Aviation Administration. The council advises the FAA on all sorts of issues related to the aviation industry, especially for policies, regulations, and budgets. DeVos hopes to help with future growth as well. He believes that there have been some challenges facing the FAA as technology has given way to certain issues with security, ticket sales, and employment.

 

The Council is made up of 13 members who are from transportation and security, former airline executives, and others in business who can help with the FAA’s new plans. DeVos has experience in both business and aviation, and he has been on the front lines to see how the aviation industry has fluctuated each year. In some cases, there have been some incredible highs and lows.

 

DeVos started out as a pilot when he was very young. He would eventually become the leader in sales for Amway during his presidency at the company. However, it was his drive for aviation that persisted all of these years. He also has a love for his hometown that has given the economy so many ways to grow over the past 10 years, although DeVos would say that he started the trend in the 1990s.

 

There was a period of time when DeVos was closely working with business leaders in Grand Rapids to formulate the economy and allow the city to grow as rapidly as possible. While he still works with city leaders, many of the projects have been in place now since the 1990s and have allowed the city to thrive. A few of those projects were built under Grand Action, which was a committee that DeVos helped form in the early 1990s with other business leaders in Grand Rapids.

 

Grand Action and the DeVos Family Foundation contributed a lot to the planning of the new Grand Rapids, bringing in businesses and cultural landmarks to the downtown area to support new growth. DeVos also focused on bringing more people to the area through the airport. He began to work closely with the CEO after the re-launch of Gerald R. Ford International Airport in 1999.

 

His new relationship brought him in contact with the CEOs of Air Tran Airways and Southwest Airlines, as well as others that had terminals at the Grand Rapids location. DeVos worked with many of them to secure an expansion construction deal that would lead to a new business traveler area, food court, and technology in the terminals. The renovation has been successful and will be completed in 2018.

 

That’s not all that DeVos has done for aviation. He also worked with kids and built a charter school to train pilots at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. His views on education and training for the aviation world may also be helpful to the FAA.
