In order to answer speculation about how much charitable giving he and his family have done, Dick DeVos recently revealed that he and his wife have given almost $139 million away. Various charities have been the beneficiaries of this philanthropy with quite a bit of it going to education, leadership, arts, community building, and religious causes. In just 2015 he said they gave $11.6 million to a number of charities. Adding in the what the rest of his extended family has given, the DeVos’ gave away $104 million in 2015 which placed them near the top of Forbe’s annual “America’s Top Givers” compilation.

Education is the most important cause for Dick DeVos which is why about 25% of what they gave away to charities was for educational causes in 2015. Dick has said that there are too many public schools in the United States who are failing children, primarily in zip codes that have a lot of low-income parents. This is inherently unfair and Dick DeVos argues that educational reforms such as vouchers and charter schools are the answer to this state of affairs.

Another priority is the arts which received about 20% of the money his family gave away in 2015. This was on top of the $22 million they donated to found the DeVos Institute of Arts Management which is located at the University of Maryland. This institute is designed to provide tomorrow’s business leaders in the arts community with the skills and knowledge needed to properly run a nonprofit arts institution.

Dick DeVos’ father is a co-founder of Amway which is a global multi-level marketing company. Dick was involved in Amway even at an early age. He attended Northwood University and earned his degree in Business Administration. He attended Harvard Business School as well Wharton School but didn’t graduate as he left these programs to work at Amway. He was very successful at Amway, especially when he was named a Vice President at the firm. He led the company’s efforts to expand internationally which resulted in the company’s international sales going from 5% of revenue to more than 50% in just six years time.

In 1991 Dick DeVos was named the CEO and President of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise after the team was purchased by his father. Also around this time he and his wife, Betsy, co-founded The Windquest Group. The Windquest Group, which he still heads, is a company that invests in green technology and industry. One of their main products is The Green Machine which is distributed by his company. This technology uses the waste heat created in the manufacturing process by converting it into usable energy that can provide electrical power.

Following his time at Oklahoma, Hufnagel served as Assistant Coach at Harvard University from 2009-2013 and helped shape the professional career of current Brooklyn Nets and NBA All-Star Jeremy Lin; Vanderbilt University from 2013-2016 and California from 2014-2016, where he recruited two standouts who went on to become top NBA draft picks and helped lead the Golden Bears to an NCAA Tournament birth.

If you’ve never heard of Wengie you need to go check her out right now. She has a super bubbly personality that is hard to not get addicted to watching. She is always trying to find hacks to make her life, and our lives, easier. Below is a list of some of her “10 Simple Life Hacks That Will Change Your Life”.

 

#10: The Straw Chip Clip

This chip clip hack is actually pretty great. I have used it myself and love it. All you need is two large straws. Cut one straw all the way along one side so it has a slit all the way down the side. Take the uncut straw and wrap the chip bag around it and then slide the cut straw over that to create a great airtight seal!

 

#4: The Nonslip Slipper Hack

This hack is for slippers or flipflops you wear around the house that either lost their grip or have none to begin with. Simply use a hot glue gun to make lines or a zig-zag pattern on the bottom of the slipper to create a great grip that will save you from slipping in the future. Make sure the glue is dry before walking around the house so you don’t accidentally make a mess.

 

#2: The Headphone/Bread Tag Hack

If your headphone cord gets all tangled up every time you put them in your pocket or in a bag, you should definitely try this hack! You know that fun colored tag that comes on your loaf of bread? Well, don’t throw the next one you get away. After you’ve finished untangling your headphones, wrap them around a few of your fingers. Once you’ve done that, take the bread tag and place it on your headphone cord to keep them neat and tangle free for the next time you need them.

Eric Pulier is always working to improve technology both for corporate and non-profit projects. He’s most known for his enterprise SOA programs and cloud platforms that were developed with US Interactive and the Computer Sciences Corporation. Now he’s out on his own investing in tech startups including his new vAtomic Systems. This company uses gaming technologies and incorporates them into real life scenarios in its apps and turns them into useful services. Pulier believes in young people and their creativity to design futuristic technology, and that’s why he serves on the Board of Innovation at XPrize. Pulier himself was a young man who followed his own creative mind to become an IT entrepreneur.

 

Pulier had two interests growing up in computers and literature. When he attended Harvard he majored in literature and also wrote columns in the Harvard Crimson newspaper. After completing his studies at both Harvard and MIT, Pulier relocated to the greater Los Angeles area to begin his career as a software and systems developer. He worked with People Doing Things for a few years, a non-profit group that used computers to address issues in healthcare, education and finance. The first company he started was Digital Evolution in 1994, and the companies he founded afterward became focused on large business solutions.

 

In 1998 Eric Pulier made CRN’s VAR Business list of Top 30 eVisionaries due to the software he brought to the business market. He started exploring cloud systems and virtual machine technologies when he founded Akana and Desktone in the early 2000s. His first major cloud enterprise software and network management system was ServiceMesh, a product that was soon bought and added to the Computer Science Corporation’s cloud suite. Pulier was an executive with the CSC for a few years until he left to explore seeding tech companies.

 

Pulier’s work with the government also was documented during the Clinton administration. He worked with the Clinton Global Initiative and also had the privilege to setup the Presidential Technology Exhibition to celebrate President Clinton’s reelection in 1996. He also helped design virtual reality systems for Starbright World, a program that helped patients in children’s hospitals have fun with 3D games.


Tammy Mazzocco has developed an interesting pattern of how she conducts her real estate business. She is very successful in the Central Ohio community orf Pickerington. She is a residential real estate agent working with RE/MAX, and she thoroughly enjoys her work. To know more about Tammy visits her About.me page.

Tammy gets a big kick out of helping families find their dream homes as the way she sees it most families are just a little bit, if not a lot, vulnerable. First of all, they are usually moving into a strange area, and for most of them, they are making the biggest financial commitment of their entire lives.

So Tammy is a good listener, but she is also a good source of information and facts about the areas where real estate is being sold. Pickerington is a small town with a population of around 20,000 people, but the four counties surrounding the town hold nearly another 1.9 million people. This is a fertile field for a real estate salesperson. Many people are looking to escape to a more country setting, and that is where Tammy comes in.

Tammy is all about work and spends much of her time out showing homes to new prospects. She knows that if she is not spending her time there, she is not in the real estate business because people have to see what is there to buy. Prospects that are willing to spend all of that time are serious about buying a home, and she gets to know her prospective clients very well.

When asked by others what makes her tick she responds that the setting of goals keeps her on track and moving. She set goals on a yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily basis, and then breaks them down so that they are more easily accomplished. She says that the best advice anyone ever gave her was not to take her too seriously and to never fear failure, as it is just a fleeting moment in time and must be gotten through to reach success.

Tammy treats the time and investment of her clients just as she would her own and doesn’t back off of that. She claims that when her clients see her sincerity in those areas they understand, and it makes them more anxious to do business with her. She makes no bones about it that she is there to transact business and find her clients the best home in the area for their needs. It works because it is true.
