Most New Years resolutions are forgotten by the second week of January, but when it comes to your business you need to see them through. One resolution you should seriously consider keeping is improving your reputation online.

Online reputation management is becoming more important, as consumers increasingly look for reviews and recommendations online before making a purchase. With these five tips, your reputation will glow in the coming year.

  1. Search For Your Name

One of the easiest ways to see what is being said about your and your company is to Google yourself. Notice the good and bad things that are being said. While you cannot delete the negative things that are being said, you can create more positive content to push the bad stuff off page one. But you have to start somewhere.

  1. Take An Inventory Of Your Social Profiles

Go back and look at all the posts you have made to your social networks. Delete anything that does not fit with the image you are now trying to portray. Political or religious posts may turn off potential customers. If you have to ask if a particular post is appropriate, it probably isn’t.

  1. Email Voice

Go through and look at the sent items in your email server. Do you come off as professional? How do you communicate with co-workers and customers? Make your voice consistent in all your correspondence.

  1. Rewrite Your Bio

Write a short bio that accurately describes who you are and what you do. Once you have it honed and ready, post it across all your social profiles and the About Me section on your website. The more this version is read, the more it becomes part of your reputation.

  1. Get Your Name Out There

The best way to create a positive reputation is to publish content consistently. Write for your own website and then branch out into guest blogging for sites in your industry. You should also be publishing on LinkedIn and Medium regularly.

A new year is an opportunity to improve your online reputation, but you do not have to wait to implement an online reputation management strategy. Start today and make consistent efforts throughout the year.

Dick DeVos is known for his many different ventures in business. It is, however, his work at Amway that put him and his career in the limelight.


He began his business ventures when he was young, but his career began in 1974 when he joined Amway Corporation. Before joining the company, Dick was a student at the Northwood University where he did his Bachelor in Business Administration. He did also attend the Harvard Business School although he didn’t graduate.


At Amway, he worked in different departments including; marketing, sale, finance, research, manufacturing, research and development. Through his different projects, he was promoted to the position of a vice president. He was charged with the responsibility of running the different company operations in all the eighteen countries. Later in 1993 he became the president of the company and served in the same position until 2002.


His family acquired the Orlando Magic in 1991 which is a basketball team. He later became the president of the company. He, however, held this position for three years. In 2005, the president of the company, Richard DeVos, his father, split the company among his different company and Dick became a part owner of the company.


After he had left the Amway Corporation, he became the president of the Windquest Group. This is a privately owned company that deals with technology and manufacturing.


In 1993, he and his wife became the co-chairs of the Education Freedom Fund which supports children from low-income families.




He has been involved in different charity works. He is the president of the Dick and Betsy Family Foundation which he has been involved in different projects.


In 2010, he opened an aviation academy in West Michigan which was the first aviation public school in the Nation.


Together with his wife Betsy DeVos he has been involved in arts funding. His foundation has been involved in supporting the Art Prize since 2009. They also committed millions to the Kennedy Center of Arts Management approximately $22.5 million. This institute offers training to art managers.


Scholarships are also another venture that he has been involved in. The Dick and Betsy Scholarship was established in 2008. This is a scholarship that supports the students in MA, MS, and MBA studying at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. The scholarships are offered to students from developing countries.




Dick DeVos was awarded the Spectrum Health Foundation Art of Giving Award in 2010 for his philanthropy work.

An article published in Ideamensch during the month of December, 2016, summarizes an interview with Adam Milstein, the managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties. He talks about his past, his current work, his philosophy about real estate, and what motivates and drives him to succeed.


Milstein came to the United States from Israel in 1981 for the purpose of attending the University of Southern California to pursue a MBA degree. Upon graduation he stayed in Southern California and starting a career in commercial real estate as a broker. He used his life experience in Israel which included service in the armed forces. This put him ahead of the typical graduate. After three years as a broker, he moved into the area of real estate investment. This led to the formation of Hager Pacific Properties along with his partner David Hager.


Adam Milstein is a hard worker who enjoys his work. He is persistent and consistent in his approach to his business. He says you must follow up every contact. Realize that there are no short cuts in real estate investing and that you must be in it for the long haul. Success does not come quickly but is the result of hard work and the passage of time.


When asked for the one idea he follows over and over, it is to understand the issue at hand. Do not rely on anyone else. Understand the problem and be part of the solution.


Milstein is involved in several charitable causes including an organization that provides free books in Hebrew for Jewish families. Family is the most part of his life. He says the best money he ever spends is for dinner with wife and children. Adam Milstein gives back to the community from his success in real estate.


Adam Milstein does not set specific goals. He just loves his work and believes that consistent hard work pays off in the long run. Once you realize commercial real estate investing is not a get rich scheme, you can work hard and success will come. Real estate investing takes patience and the passage of time.

Born on October 1st, 1949 in Washington, D.C., Mr. Bruce Levenson is an American businessman as well as a philanthropist. He is the former owner of NBA basketball team. He co-owned Philips Arena and Atlanta Hawks LLC, the owner and manager of Atlanta Hawks. In 2004, Bruce served as the governor of Hawks on the board of the NBA team. In 1997, he teamed up with Ed Peskowitz to establish United Communication Group (UCG), a specialist in telecommunication, technology, banking, healthcare analysis, data, and news services. Also known as GasBuddy, United Communication Group owns a software that alerts motorists about the nearest low-priced gas stations. This information can be sourced from

Sale of the Hawks

In 2014, Mr. Bruce announced that he would sell the Hawks due to the low fan base and insufficient sponsorship. He encouraged the team’s executives to embrace diversity to avert racial sports in Atlanta. Bruce does not tolerate racism, and during his tenure at NBA, Bruce did his best to make the team fit for any race. As a result, he resorted to selling his shares at Hawks Franchise. Steve Koonin would serve as Bruce Levenson’s agent during the transaction.

However, Steve Koonin failed to strike a deal that would generate 27% profitability as expected. Consequently, Mr. Bruce hired Goldman Sachs and Inner Circle Sports to act as his agent. Although according to Time magazine,  Bruce valued his shares at $ 1 billion, Andrew Zimbalist, a renowned sports economist predicted the sale to be between $700 and $750 million. The sale attracted several bidders but was won by Tony Ressler at $850 million.


Mr. Bruce has supported several philanthropic organizations such as Hoop Dreams Foundation and Community Foundation of Washington, D.C. Besides, as a dedicated philanthropist, Bruce supports the Holocaust Museum and Bringing the Lessons Home Program. Over the years, Bruce supported the Seed Foundation and Seeds of Peace programs to sustain peace. In 2015, Levenson and his wife, Karen headed John F. Kennedy Centre’s concert, which was meant to create awareness about the effects of hatred and defamation.


Omar Boraie is the founder and president of Boraie Development LLC, a construction company that deals in real estate. He first moved to the United States to pursue his PhD in chemistry before developing interests in the real estate sector. Through his company, Omar has developed several buildings that have completely changed the outlook of New Brunswick. Over the years, he has managed to turn old building into attractive properties that have wooed many people to New Brunswick.
When he was venturing into real estate, he points out that the city was awful. At the time, people could not walk past the streets after 4 in the evening. Looking back, Omar Boraie is a happy person because his vision has come full circle. The vision he had for the city has slowly been realized with much improvements expected in the future. Back then, when he gave his vision to some leaders of the City Council, they thought he was crazy. Presently, he has been vindicated by the turn of events.
Omar Boraie started by buying dilapidated blocks and converting them into modern state houses. After he completed buying the blocks, Omar Boraie built Albany Street Plaza Tower One. The building brought New Brunswick the much needed 250,000 square feet of Class A office space during the 1980s. Tower two was completed in 2003 and it is located next to Tower One adding more of Class A office spaces.
After completing the two towers, Omar noticed that in order for the city to develop faster it needed high standard residential units. As a result, he envisioned a New York City style building, which led to the construction of One Spring Street Condominium. Currently, it is the tallest building in New Brunswick with 25 stories that includes 121 residential units. It also offers 40,000 square feet of office space, 10,000 square feet of retail space as well as 4,000 square feet of packing space.
The latest offer from Boraie Development LLC is the Aspire, a 17 story residential high rise deluxe located on Somerset Street within the heart of the city. The Aspire brings to New Brunswick luxury living that is so convenient to would- be homeowners. This is due to its location that is near the train location that offers direct service to New York. Without a doubt, Omar Boraie has played a key role in the resurgence of New Brunswick. However, he is not quick to take all the praise but also acknowledges the contributions made by others in furtherance of his vision.

Going back a few decades, all photos that were taken had to be sent to a location to be developed. As a result, people would take photos and have to wait hours and sometimes days before they could see the photos. However, with current technology innovations, the devices on that are used for shooting photos now are primarily digital. By using digital devices, the photos that are taken can be seen immediately.

This has changed the way people take photos. Now, people can take photos without any training at all regarding shooting photos. The technology on is so advanced that people can literally point and shoot to take photos. This has been one of the main reasons why the popularity of shooting photos has increased so much in the past decade.

Although technology has made shooting photos easier and more convenient, many people still struggle with shooting good photos because they lack the basic understanding of shooting photos. No matter what technology is used for shooting photos, the people who actually take the photos must still know how to take a good photo. Technology can help some, but technology cannot replace skill, experience, and knowledge regarding shooting photos.

Always someone willing to help people who want to learn more about shooting good photos, Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa recently provided a list of common mistakes that people should not make related to shooting photos.

5. The majority of the pictures are taken while traveling
6. The composition is not correct.
7. The person taken the picture is not close enough.
8. HDR is excessive.
9. The colors are too strong.
10. There is no topic.

The Sefirot Of Kabbalah

Kabbalah believes that at the center of our lives are ten sefirot. The sefirot are what make us who we are and greatly impact our lives. They can make us happy and productive or feeling inadequate and unhappy. The sefirot are further divided into two main categories.

There are sefirot of the mind. These include the three sefirot of chochma, bina and da’at. Chochma is awareness of our thoughts and channeling our thoughts to a creative and fruitful purpose. Bina involves the action to the thoughts in chochma. It involves taking chochma and putting it into practice for our benefit. Da’at is learning and using knowledge to empower our selves. It also involves drive.

The remaining seven sefirot are categorized as sefirot of emotion. They include the sefirot of hessed, gevurah, tif’eret, netzach, hod, yesod and malchut. These sefirot cover the areas of love, compassion, empathy, restraint, discipline, communication and satisfaction.

How The Kabbalah Centre Espouses Kabbalah Study

The Kabbalah Centre is a not for profit organization that was established in 1984 by the Rabbi Philip Berg. Before the Kabbalah Centre, the study of Kabbalah was restricted to scholars and was not widely available to the majority of people. Philip Berg and his wife Karen wanted to change that. They wanted to make the study of Kabbalah more accessible to the masses. That was one of the driving forces in establishing the Kabbalah Centre in 1984.

Today the Kabbalah Centre provides people with several different ways to study Kabbalah. There are the traditional classes that are similar to a university course. Then there are study groups, where people study Kabbalah together and have discussions on the material. Online courses, that utilize technology to connect people from all over the world have also recently appeared. They follow a course format such as those found in colleges about material contained in Kabbalah.

The Kabbalah Centre offers a very practical approach to the study and interpretation of Kabbalah. Its goal is not to train masters or scholars of Kabbalah. Rather, the goal of the center is to help transform people’s lives for the better through insight gained by studying Kabbalah.
