One of those things is the combination of short- term goals and growth plans fo follow for the next year or two. The other helpful thing is that he does not schedule meetings and conferences when issues need to be taken care of. The time wasted on planning a meeting could be used for directly resolving the problem.

Betsy DeVos is the wife of Amway heir Richard DeVos and has a long history of activism in the Republican party and as an influential voice in school choice. Her husband, Dick DeVos is the son of Amway co-founder, Rich DeVoss. Amway was a small soap company in Michigan until the elder DeVoss and his partner Jay Van Andel turned it into a multi-million dollar company.

Betsy and her husband are also very active from a philanthropic standpoint, actively chairing and participating in different charitable interests and causes.

Betsy was recently named as Secretary of Education by President Donald Trump and was confirmed by Congress in that post. She has served in various posts for the Republican Party and various capacities in political posts on a local and national level.

Her work on school choice sent shivers down the spines of Democratic lawmakers who looked upon everything that was not in their sphere of thinking as bad. Betsy has long been an advocate of school choice, as many parents are sick and tired of getting non-answers from school officials on the local and state levels.

According to Betsy, there are three choices for students which are available. Of course, there are the public schools which do very well in middle class to wealthy areas and poorly in the inner cities and impoverished areas.

Then there are the Charter Schools which are usually run as “for profit” schools which also have a good track record, and are not normally found in the inner cities.

Then there is homeschooling which has a great track record. Students tend to do better at homeschooling because there is a minimum distraction element and more time can be spent with a home schooled child than having to deal with all of the distractions in a classroom.

Betsy DeVos is adamant about her and her husband’s desires to improve American Education for everybody, not just middle class or well-to-do people. She goes on to say that our education today is relegated by zip code and geographical location, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. Read her interview with Philantrophy Table.

The days of stacking students in rows of desks in a classroom where they listen to a lecture for 30 or 40 minutes is going by the wayside. We have so much technology available today that kids are eager to tackle and learn from, the old ways are becoming outdated very quickly.

Technology makes it possible for children to learn from anywhere, not from just one physical place. That is why having more choice in where learning takes place is tremendously attractive to many parents and students alike. Learning is not just for suburban kids either, because inner city students do just as well with the technology too. Read more news on Los Angeles Times.

Having to receive education in a specified “school building” is diminishing as a concept with both students and parents as more imaginative ways of learning are taking hold and being embraced.

Brian Bonar is a longtime innovator and IT guru who also possesses financial skills and investment knowledge. He’s spent years in the hardware and software development industries and has transformed some of these companies into full service staffing organizations.

Bonar is the Chairman of the Dalrada Financial Corporation based in San Diego and has founded several subsidiaries through this company. He’s also served on business advisory boards for many other corporations and always believes in finding a better way for businesses to operate in strategic partnerships, especially in professional employer organizations (PEOs).

PEOs are a model that Bonar’s companies have operated under, including his most recent acquisition at Trucept Inc. A client company can outsource their accounting, payroll and employee benefits to a PEO in order to focus on daily operations and business strategy.

A PEO can also serve as a talent recruiter and hire new employees for the client company, but the client company still reserves the right to manage employee tasks and can terminate the employee if they wish. Trucept has cut down on the amount of staff members needed in this capacity through using proprietary software and automated solutions to track employee activities and manage the payroll.

Brian received his business and IT training at two prominent schools in the UK. He got his bachelor’s degree at Strathclyde University in Glasgow and his MBA at Staffordshire University in Stoke-on-Trent. He began his business career at IBM UK as a consultant, and then became Procurement Manager of the tech giant’s motherboard sales division servicing enterprise clients throughout the globe.

Brian Bonar then became head of a team of software engineers at QMS, a quality management company serving different industries. After several years at QMS he joined Adaptec and Rastek, two companies that distributed printers and copiers to various corporate customers.

In 1994 he helped develop a SCSI printer for Bezier Systems. He also began one of his first PEO companies while at Imaging Technologies when he partnered their printer manufacturing and installation services with SourceOne Group.

Bonar founded the Dalrada Financial Corporation in 1999 and while serving there has also been on the boards of Allegiant Professional Services, The Amanda Company, AMS Outsourcing and The Solvis Group.

According to Crunchbase, Brian Bonar is also buying restaurants in the suburbs of San Diego on the side and transforming them into tourist favorites, including Bellamy’s in Escondido and Bandy Canyon Ranch not far from there.

He even chose Master Chef of France Patrick Ponsaty to manage both of these restaurants and has allowed him to hire top notch staff in the process. Brian also works with the Boys and Girls Club of San Diego in his spare time as well as enjoying boating and golfing.

There is no way around it. People need a good online reputation in order to be able to get anywhere in their lives. A bad online reputation can make life very miserable for people. I does not matter which industry one is looking at. It is important to make sure that one has a good image that people would want to associate with. Even health care requires a good online reputation for one to be able to get anywhere far in this industry. As a matter of fact, there is a major challenge in healthcare when it comes to online reputation.

According to Status Labs reviews, one of the largest factors that people look at when it comes to healthcare facilities is patient experience. After all, this is one of the most important aspects of any business. It is how the patient or the customer feels about their experience with the health care experience. After all, one of the things people are going to look at about a company is the customer review. After all, most people that visit the place are going to be customers. Also, most of the customers are not going to be favorite customers of the company. This is why they take the time to look at the online reputation of a company.

It is important for health care companies to have a strong online reputation because health is very important to a patient. If the patient is not in good health, then this could cause a lot of problems for the patient and the families of the patient. Therefore, it is important that health care facilities not only get good reviews, but make sure that they are offering some of the best services that the patient could get so that he could be taken care of and get the recovery he needs.

Dick DeVos and Betsy DeVos has been in the news for their contributions to the political donations, but those are just the icebergs compared to the donations that they have made to the charitable institutions in the country and those outside of it. The DeVos family had donated about $1.33 billion through their lifetime out of their $5.2 billion estimated fortune. In 2015 alone, the couple had given $11.6 million to different charitable institutions as I could infer from their website.

 

 

The primary beneficiary of Dick DeVos donations was to educational causes. In 2015, their main contribution, about 26 percent of their total contribution, was to educational purposes. Also, they awarded about $375,000 to different groups that were supporting education reform something which Betsy DeVos significantly support. It is this contribution that showcases what their priority in life is and it is to improve the education system in the country. They think that the current system is not fulfilling the American student’s dream and it is through this little contribution they would like to support educational reforms and help achieve the necessary steps required for the American dream to be achieved.

 

 

After education, their top priority is Arts and Culture, and the couple donated about $2.4 million to the cause. They started the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland. The remaining part of their donations went to civic, community and other; leadership and development, public policy and others. The couple does not dictate the organizations they donate to on how to spend the money they contribute. It is only when they feel something will make a difference, do they advise them.

 

 

The couple includes their five children in the all the decisions that they make about donating the money. In my opinion, it was because of this, that they added the word ‘family’ to their foundation to show this approach. According to Dick DeVos, their children offer them a new perspective on the different places that the couple should donate to. Also, they also propose about the kind of donations that they should make and what will make a difference to the cause.

 

 

Dick DeVos has held a number of executive positions throughout his business career. From 1993 to 2002, he was the President of Amway and overlooked operations of the company in about 50 countries spreading across six continents. Before that, he served as the Vice-President of the company from 1984 till he was made the President in 1993 and was responsible for its operation in countries outside of North America. It was under his leadership that the company started its business in more international markets and tripled its sales. He was also the President and CEO of Orlando Magic for three years after its family acquired the company.

 

Nationwide Title Clearing Inc is distinguished for its efforts in availing property records online. Title defects are a primary issue in the real estate market with some associating it with wrongful foreclosure while others feeling that it contributes to the stagnation of what would be an easy straightforward transfer of assets in a secondary market. The National Title Clearing Inc staff has stated that property records are necessary for lowering the risks of inability to foreclose or buy back. NTC is involved with document processing and research for the financial and mortgage industry. The organization has taken several steps in making the acquisition of property reports easy. The company has launched a website that makes it possible to access property reports online.

 

 

How Title Defects Occur

 

 

Although title defects are common when an entity or person claims property belonging to another party, they could also arise due to factors such as:

 

 

  • Issues with the wording in documents that is not compliant with an area’s real estate standards
  • Failing to include a party’s signature where it is required for a transaction
  • Previous encumbrances and liens that are part of the title- title deeds should not have any encumbrances if they are to be easily marketed
  • Failing to adhere to filing and recording procedures during the recording of documents concerning real estate

 

Due to the reasons stated above, CEO of NTC, John Hillman, has stated that it is important for such title defects to be addressed before the transfer or sale of property. In a bid to improve the standards of the mortgage industry, NTC has availed the following reports through online ordering:

 

 

  • Tax Status Report
  • Services for Assignment Verification Reports
  • Tax Status (Plus) Report
  • Current Owner Report

 

NTC acquires data from different sources which includes human verification coupled with automation. This practice has made NTC able to successfully service the largest lenders in U.S.A. under strictly audited compliance standards. NTC staff says that the strategy has produced accurate results.
