Start Small

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

The most successful companies in the world did not start as they appear, they have gone through stages to become successful. Handy is not exceptional, from cleaning chores to supplying commodities in a large population.

Handy is a brand which was formed by Umang Dua and Oisin Hanrahan in the year 2012. Its initial objective was to help clients in cleaning jobs at their homesteads and workplaces. However, it has expanded its operations. It deals with a wide range of home products. The brand is growing very fast due to its strategic position in the internet and the quality services it provides to its clients. Handy is convenient to its customers. Clients just go into the handy website, enter their zip codes and the work they want to be done as well as the time they want the chore to be done. After doing all that, they are given a price quote. This saves time as the client does not have to move looking for a maid to perform the home chores.

If something is damaged during work, it pays for it. To avoid such from happening, qualified personnel is employed by the organization.

Handy services are active in more than twenty-eight (28) cities. The brand has expanded in the range of products it provides to its customers. Furniture delivery has also been introduced. Delivery is done when the consumers request on the organization’s website. One can get furniture to decorate his/her bedroom, sitting room or any other place on Handy’s website.

Each brand in the organization has its own delivery network. According to, the company also deals with installation of home appliances like television sets, Boiler Installation, Cabinet Refacing and boulder placement. The price of the services are attached to the service type in the website. This makes it possible for consumers to prepare before making orders.

The company also offers discounts on some installations. This has attracted several people to its services. Another strategy used by the firm to gain consumer trust are the after sales services offered. After sales, services include delivery to home places and free installation of some home appliances bought from the industry. Handy provides a wide range of goods and services from which the consumers make their choice wherever they are from their website.





The Inspiational Kabbalah Centre

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

The Kabbalah Centre opened in Los Angeles, California in 1984, and is a non-profit organization with over fifty worldwide branches including New York City, Toronto, and London.


The Centre provides schooling online on Kabbalistic and Zohar teachings as well as through its city-based and regional centres and worldwide study groups. Philip Berg is the director and developer of the Centre and he works alongside his wife, Karen Berg. The Kabbalah Centre is made up of international, multi-ethnic staff who teach the Kabbalistic way and offer helpful guidance to students worldwide.


Rabbis traditionally believed that the teachings of the Kabbalah were too complex and too easily misunderstood to be taught to anyone other than mostly male, devout students who were over the age of forty.


The Kabbalah Centre supports the belief that all spiritual beliefs are merely branches of a universal wisdom and resemble the teachings of Kabbalah. The Kabbalah Centre has a strong association with astrology which is a part of Judaism and was studied by Jewish scholars during the Middle Ages. Kabbalah teachings also hold true to the belief that a person should be aware of their relationship with God above all else. In Kabbalah teachings, Light is considered to be the actual essence of God.


The Kabbalah Centre supports the idea that everyone has a connection to the spiritual world of light, as taught by the ancient concept of Klippot, but that it is actually blocked by Klippot, which is a restricting spiritual energy, from entering one’s physical being. It is believed that through vigorous study, one can remove the violence and negative behavior of Klippot.


Some Biblical passages are even thought to be codes to life as well as universal laws which Kabbalists and the Zohar have unraveled throughout history. The Kabbalah Centre has created a series of what is known as the Books of the Bible containing Kabbalistic excerpts to compliment the Torah’s weekly portion.


There is even a celebrity following by the rich and famous such as Madonna, who regularly studies with a Kabbalah Centre Rabbi, Mick Jagger, Ashton Kutcher, Ariana Grande, and Donna Karan.

Dick DeVos Finds Success In Business And Philanthropy

Monday, October 17th, 2016

The role of business people in their local communities is something I have had a great interest in, particularly for the DeVos family of Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have known about the DeVos family and their impressive work for a number of years since the business was headed by Dick’s father, Richard; philanthropy has been a major part of the work of the DeVos family since the early days of Richard’s ownership of the AmWay group that was marked by his own positive attitude to philanthropy. Dick DeVos has continued this work with a prolonged period of philanthropy that includes educational development, an investment in the arts, and plans to improve community links throughout the Grand Rapids, Michigan region.

Success means different things to different people and I believe Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy see success in more than just business terms; Betsy and Dick have both had an interest in politics that has been reported in a Philanthropy Roundtable article I read with Betsy DeVos. Understanding the political situation in the world is something Dick DeVos has always been good at and impressed me with the way both he and his wife, Betsy have crossed political lines to find success for the future for their impressive work in the area of educational reform.


I believe Dick DeVos has performed a major service to the people of many states in terms of education reform after embarking on programs of change across the nation far from their Michigan home. Success in this area was achieved in Florida, which I believe has become a standard bearer for education reform across the U.S. through its use of school choice and school vouchers; using some of the fortune Dick DeVos built with the AmWay Group to provide help for those in need of education reform continues to this day.


Dick DeVos has also provided a number of services and programs of assistance for the people of his home state of Michigan designed to provide them with a better standard of living and financial security. I was particularly impressed to read through Wikipedia that Dick DeVos had been working on the Grand Action Plan for Grand Rapids that had made inroads into creating a more stable economic environment for the people of this area of Michigan.

JustFab Knows Their Customers

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

When it is time to run a business, one must know what they are doing, first and foremost, and they must know what kind of customers they are appealing to, at the end of the day. The customers are the lifeblood of any company on Too many times, people create companies and the companies they create are for themselves or just to make money. They don’t even take the feelings or thoughts of the customer into consideration. They become an afterthought. That is why when Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler put together JustFab, they wanted to do it different. They wanted to truly listen to the customers.

There is a big difference between listening and hearing the customers on A lot of CEO’s might hear what the customer is saying, but they aren’t truly listening to the words that they are saying or the meaning behind it. Most people will explain in detail what they want, but the message gets lost because someone is not understanding it the proper way. Someone doesn’t reach the success of Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler without being smart and knowing what they are doing and how to reach out to customers. They also know that it is important to surround yourselves with quality people.

They have brought in fashion leaders to help them in this pursuit. They have not been shy about admitting that, at first, they had some questions about fashion and didn’t know everything there is to know. That is what makes them great CEO’s. A lot of people are too proud to ask for help or they think they have all of the answers. A smart CEO on youtube.comand one that is going to last for a long time is one that admits what they don’t know, asks questions, and brings in the right people.

If Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler were going to do this, they were going to do it right. They were going to pour their hearts, souls, bodies, and minds into this. Adam Goldenberg care about it and want it to be as successful as possible. They know the fashion industry is booming and now is the time to strike and pounce on it. They also know that a lot of women have been looking for something like this and it speaks to them and means something to them. They have a responsibility and it is not one they take lightly.
