Millions of people prefer to make their purchases online. In-store retail sales are slowly going the way of the dinosaur. Fueled in large part by the spending habits of Generation Y consumers, purchases through digital media are on the ascent. Businesses may be making a good transition to the new market from a technocratic perspective, but their overall strategies are limited. A system to facilitate the physical action of completing sales is in place. Effectively managing the brand’s reputation is often woefully inadequate.

Whatech.com published an informative article that addressed the dangers a business can face once its reputation is in tatters. Specifically, the article pointed out that online consumers take reputation extremely seriously. The consumers also look at security, social media activity, published reviews, and more in order to arrive at their opinions.

Many business owners do not react properly when something appears online that is capable of harming a reputation. They either react too slow, reacting inadequately, or fail to react at all. Many businesses do not even have the current online presence to help craft a managed imaged. As a result, the minute something negative appears online, the negative commentary becomes the only thing people searching online discover. No business is going to live up to its potential in such a landscape.

Dealing with online reputation problems is best handled by turning the duties over to Status Labs.

Marcio compares the drone to “flying” cars that have always been predicted in our future. At the show, Marcio Alaor was the one who revealed the new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt.

Marcio And His Outrageous Success

Marcio Alaor is one of the most successful people that the BMG bank has ever seen. Not because he is the vice president, but because of where he came from before he worked for the bank. He had to work nearly double as hard as others who had worked for the bank in the past.

As a businessman, Marcio Alaor has always been very professional. He has worked to make his clients happy, no matter what position he held. He worked very hard to make the business that he had and make it work. He always made sure that he remained dedicated and driven. If the work that he offered to his clients was not something that he would be proud of or want to have done to him, he did it the right way. He always made sure that the clients of his business were happy above all else.

Before he worked for the bank, Marcio Alaor caught the eye of a business executive for BMG bank. This man was impressed with Marcio Alaor. He knew that the young man was a hard worker and that he was dedicated to his job. This was something that he always looked for in potential employees and he made sure that he told Marcio Alaor he was the right fit for the bank. He offered him an entry-level banking position, which Alaor took with gusto. He worked hard when he began working for the bank.

Part of his hard work at the bank may have been due to the work that he did prior to the banking position. He was a shoe shiner. He worked to shine the shoes of people who worked as executives and big banking positions. This is how he met the executive who offered him the job at the bank. He would not have had the opportunity had he been distracted or not interested in working. He worked very hard as a shoe shiner and the executive liked what he saw. He did not care that Marcio Alaor did not have banking experience, he wanted him on his team.

The job offer paid off for Marcio Alaor. He took the position and ran with it. He was very successful and always went above and beyond what he was required to do. For this reason, he gained many promotions from the bank. He rose his way to success in the banking world and now sits happily on the empire that he made for himself. He is the vice president of BMG bank, a position that he could have only dreamed of in the past. He always works to make sure that he still remains as driven as the shoe shiner he once was.

George Soros: Trump is Helping ISIS

The 2016 Presidential Elections’ campaigning in the United States is now in full swing, and is heating up. Soon, the primary elections will shake out the weaker candidates and, eventually, the contest will be between two candidates, one Democrat, the other Republican.

Still, now it’s possible that multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg will enter the race as well and become the third bidder for the Oval Office.

While it’s still not sure who will win the primaries, Hillary Clinton used to be sure shot on the Democratic side. Things have changed and now she got a serious opponent from her party, Bernie Sanders.

Most recently, Hillary asked the voters to stop shopping around and give her the mandate. Meanwhile, on the Republican side, Donald Trump has become a serious contender, making it quite possible that it will be Clinton vs. Trump during November’s elections.

Trump, with wealth estimated between $4 to $5 billion dollars, is using his own money to help in getting elected. Yet, there’s a man five times richer who’s supporting Clinton’s campaign- George Soros himself.

To aid her campaign, Hillary Clinton claimed that Trump’s remarks about banning Muslims from entering the United States are helping ISIS to recruit terrorists. ISIS has certainly picked up on Clinton’s comments and now, indeed, is using Trump’s speech as a recruiting tool.

Now, George Soros comes to Clinton’s rescue and echoes what she has said. According to Forbes, Soros stated that “Trump is doing the work of ISIS.” In addition, he criticized another Republican candidate, Ted Cruz, while claiming that Hilary will win in a landslide.

It’s still early in the campaign, but already rough statements about Trump’s alleged assistance to ISIS are taking place. Meanwhile, Hillary is becoming more desperate. It’s likely that the comments and accusations on both sides will heat up.

Donald Trump is also a tough opponent, he surely will fire back at Clinton. And George Soros will likely make more controversial statements. More hard rhetoric is to come. In fact, we got ten more months of it coming.

Igor Cornelsen Makes Investing Simple

I used to be scared about saving for retirement. It seemed like something that was impossible to get started with. I just didn’t think that I had the ability to do it on my own. That was before I came across Igor Cornelsen and his advice. Now I have a better understanding of how to invest, and I would say that Igor has become the source of my new found knowledge. He has given me everything that I need to survive in the investment game, and I appreciate his level of dedication to educating those that need the advice.

I like the simple methods on brandyourself.com that he has used for give investors advice. There are only about three tips that he throws out: know the company that you are investing in, spread these investments out and make plans to consider international investing. That is it. Three simple tips that any novice can handle. I was thrilled to see that there was so little that I needed to know to get started. Most books on financial planning will make it seem like it takes a lifetime of investing experience is needed to starting selling and buying stocks. Igor doesn’t confuse me with a lot of jargon about irrelevant theories. He just tells me what I really need to know. I couldn’t ask for more from a consultant.

I certainly do believe that is why he is successful as a financial consultant. His business does well because people trust him. They believe in the advice that he is given. They are seeking his knowledge because it will eventually give them some sense of independence. That is huge, and more people need to know how to tap into the advice that he is relaying to investors.

Before he retired he was in Brazil. This was where he spent his time. He was an investment banker. I believe he is fund of the international trade because he has reaped the benefits of it. I think that the returns for some Brazilian stocks are better than some returns in America at times. This has made it very alluring to consider what Brazil has in store. I don’t think I would have considered global stocks, but Cornelsen’s theories on the street opened my eyes. He is the investor that knew the ropes and showed me what was out there. I know that there is more out there.

Life of Ricardo Guimarães,the President of Banco BMG

It is often said that people who are born with silver spoons in their mouths feel entitled, but it takes a great person to see past the family wealth and work hard to make a name for him or herself. Ricardo Guimarães was born into a wealthy family, actually one of the most affluent families in Brazil, but has always been hardworking and innovative. His family’s wealth came from the Land Credit Bank, which was founded by his grandfather in 1930 and has since stayed in the family. His father inherited it from his grandfather.

Ricardo grew up learning the business and began working in the bank in 1980 as an assistant. Despite already having a job in the family business, he took the initiative of earning a university degree in Business Administration. He continued to learn at the feet of his father in preparation for him to take over the company. Ricardo took over the company in 1998 and is currently the President of the bank.

Many people would say that under the leadership of Ricardo, the bank has flourished and is leading in the Brazilian financial sector. He did this by using a structure that enabled the bank to close deals with limited interests and therefore making it convenient for those who needed personal loans. However, Ricardo did not only focus his wealth and energy on the bank but also made numerous investments in various industries. He always gets motivation from great initiatives which made him invest in agriculture and mining. Nevertheless, Ricardo is not all business all the time. He has an interest in the country’s football which helped him gain eminence in the sports world.

He is quite passionate about the football club, offering sponsorship to the teams and had held command of a group called Alvinegro Club. He also created an investment fund in football athletes known as the Ricardo Soccer BR1. Nonetheless, being an entrepreneur and sports fan that he is, he learnt to strike a balance between the two by assuring the Brazilian people that his bank does not support any particular team. So the bank neutrally sponsors the football games and also uses that platform for advertisement purposes.

Ricardo has over the years earned the respect and admiration of many people in the country including the most powerful people such as the Secretary of State Government and the President of the Legislative Assembly of Minas Gerais. He received an Honors degree in 2011 which was in honour of his committed development of sports in the country. It is safe to say that Ricardo is carrying the family name to great heights.

The Importance of Client Relationships

As a leading entrepreneur and investor, Brad Reifler has spent decades cultivating client relationships. As a result of his efforts, he has been able to start and build one successful company after another. While much of his time has been spent developing business strategies that would vault his companies to the top of the financial services industry, he has also spent much of his time making sure he got to know his clients and their financial goals very well.

However, what sets Brad apart from so many other CEOs is his commitment to providing personalized attention to each client’s account. Rather than simply let others handle all the details regarding the company’s clients, Brad personally sees to it that each and every client is satisfied with their service and are having all their questions answered in a clear and concise manner.

Using this approach in business is not unique. However, as with any type of business strategy, some people are better at it than others. No matter the situation, Brad has developed a reputation for being perhaps the best at his craft. Having had the experience of starting and building multiple companies, he understands that if his clients meet their goals and achieve success, so does he and his company. In order to make sure he stays ahead of the latest business trends, Brad regularly meets with some of the world’s leading economists to discuss both national and international issues that are pertinent to financial services, and that’s a part of why he’s so followed on Twitter. Rather than sit back and wait for things to happen, Brad believes in making things happen and creating the trends that other companies will eventually follow. By always having a very proactive approach with his companies and clients, Brad virtually guarantees his clients will achieve each and every one of their financial goals.  Brad’s Reuters tips have set the standard for investment advice.

Radicals Threaten the Establishments Insanity Cycle

As far as presidential elections go, the upcoming 2016 election will be the first in decades that the American people have a chance to vote for a selection of candidates versus the two pre-approved choices. Two candidates, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, are about as far apart in views as two individuals can be yet both are exactly what the average American voter is looking for, change.

It has been a while since we have had a non-Bush or Clinton in the White House; the public is ready for something new and with Sanders and Trump satisfying the far-right and far-left, the Establishment is nervously begging voters to “stay sane” and choose one of the pre-approved, Establishment-friendly candidates. The possibility of radical candidate they can identify with in the mix is exciting for Americans and threatens to tear down the roots of insanity that has created one of the most charged political climates in history.

As Jon Urbana demurs on Bloomberg, Trump and Sanders may seem like crazy choices with their ideas and opinions leaning to the farthest sides of the spectrum however voting for the “same” candidates year after year and expecting things to change sounds equally crazy.

The question posed by Robert Parry sums up the urge to “stay sane” by the Establishment and vote for an approved candidate, is perfectly mind-boggling. “Is that ‘staying sane’ or ‘staying insane’?”
