On Reputation Recovery

In a recent article, Darius Fisher, the president of Status Labs speaks about how the company has changed for the better over the past year. The online reputation management company has actually caught its own fair share of bad press. If you are working with enough people and your company is large enough, this is bound to happen. The executive (that is no longer working with Status Labs) that brought so much negative attention to the company did so by doing things outside of the company, as well. Even though the former executive’s actions were not within the company, it still affected the way that people viewed Status Labs.


The company spent quite some time rebuilding its own online image. Now, their image is great. Their SEO results look good. The employees and clients that Status Labs works with can rest easy now that everything has been cleared up with the media. In order to show the public the full story and to show the faces of the employees, Status Labs released a letter to the media along with a team photo. Putting their faces out there for the world to see helped Status Labs gain positive press and positive public opinion.


The employees at Status Labs also decided to help their communities out by volunteering to work at charities and non profit organizations. The employees actually seemed to enjoy this part of the process. Status Labs’ employees worked with Dress for Success, the Food Bank of Texas and a bunch of other notable charities.
Status Labs has worked with over 1,000 clients that have seen their online reputations turn from negative to positive. They were able to fix their own online reputation, and now that they have released the right information to the right media sources, Status Labs looks like a company to trust once again. They certainly know how to change the way people and businesses are viewed when they are searched for online. The first impression counts for a lot. Here’s the Huffington Post article that talks about Status Labs.

Democrat, Socialism, or Not?

Bernie Sanders recently stated that if elected president of the USA, he would make it a socialist country. A socialist state is one where the workers manage and control industries through a democratic government. Many people in the USA are opposed to the idea of socialism. They include liberals who believe that socialist governments are responsible for violation of human rights.

In an interview with Trish Regan on Fox News, she talked to Thor Halvorssen about democratic socialism. Thor works with the human rights foundation and therefore his interview on Fox had a lot of sense. He stated clearly that he had nothing against socialism as long as it was practiced by a government that is not authoritarian. He mentioned countries such as Norway, Denmark, and Sweden as examples of countries that have successfully practiced socialism since they do not violate human rights.

Thor’s main objections against socialism were that if it was practiced by an authoritarian government, there was a great chance for the leadership going against its previously set objectives about helping citizens by extorting them. This comes into force because in socialist governments, who by the way people say are similar to Marxists and communists, the government is responsible for setting the prices for common household goods and this, in turn, leads to shortages of these commodities which are otherwise very necessary.

Thor Halvorssen gave a good example of a country where socialism had backfired on the people and brought about great suffering from the shortage of food and other necessities. Venezuela is a South American nation under the leadership of Hugo Chavez. The government there sets prices for everything and therefore causing a shortage that in the end only cause a crisis. Thor himself has had his experiences with socialism on Venezuela. His father was a political prisoner in the country while is the first cousin is still a prisoner there. Thor’s mother has also been shot by this government at one time. All these unrest in the country has been brought by the government making decisions about important issues such as food prices by themselves. The ordinary citizen is left feeling cheated, and it is true at most times.

Thor stated clearly that although he is not for the idea of socialism for the USA, he had his support for Democratic Party candidate Bernie Sanders. He mentioned the current frontrunner’s ties to countries that oppress people as the reason for his choice to support Sanders. That is his choice and opinion anyway.

According to Huffington Post, Halvorssen says that democratic socialism can only work if there is the rule of law. He feels that for the government to eradicate poverty, it should be a creation of more wealth and no redistribution of the same. That is the reason that Thor is such a believer in free markets. If the government decides to control everything, there is bound to be a problem.

Donald Trump Needs a Word of Advice and Support of Charles Koch

Charles Koch has, again and again, lamented this year’s presidential campaign especially from candidates in the Republican party. However, his stand on supporting Hilary Clinton appears to be changing as we near the general election. During an interview in the Kansas offices of his company, Koch Industries, the billionaire and political donor said that he did not envision a support for Hilary Clinton despite the concern raised about Trump’s gain in political potential of being the Republican nominee. Although Koch admitted there is a chance to support Hilary Clinton, he confirmed that it is highly remote.

In another interview with ABC news network, he revealed that it was possible that Bill Clinton was a better president than President Bush raising eyebrows for many people who see it as a left-and-right approach for the candidate they feel would listen to their interests. Koch and his brother David Koch are widely known for their influential conservative donors in the U.S. Koch called the Republican candidates terrible role models because of their strategy to attack each other instead of focusing on the critical issues affecting the country.

Charles Koch has been the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries from 1967, and his leadership had transformed the company into a dynamic and diverse group of companies that have given jobs to over 60,000 Americans and more than 100,000 people around the worldwide. According to Koch, it is the letter from his father that changed his life and made him dedicated to supporting people through donations and influence policies that would make America a better place to work and live.

His interest is what led to the development, and implementation of Market-Based Management (MBM) business philosophy concept he believes can be used by any business including NPOs to benefit the society as a whole. The first book of Charles Koch was “The Science of Success” which he published in 2007, and now the world is waiting for the second book on MBM with the title “Good Profit” to be released in October.

His political role in the U.S. and the fact that he has refused to back the nominee for the Republican Party is something Donald Trump should be worried about. Trump should know better than anyone that Koch network and their allies have political experience for many years.

It was while in this last role that he decided to branch out on his own.

In 1994 Goullet founded Info Technologies which is an IT staffing company. His years in computers and IT work had given him the knowledge to run such a company wisely. The company was an almost instant success, quickly blossoming into a $30 million establishment. But the successful company kept on growing bigger and bigger. In 2010, John Goullet merged Info Technologies with another such company to create Diversant LLC. In all of its phases, Goullet’s company has done more than assign any IT person to any client company.

Handy Can Help Anyone that is Struggling with Cleaning the Home

I have never been good at cleaning, but I didn’t always have to clean. When I was younger I was an only child. I played with things and put them back in place. When I was an older adult with an apartment I didn’t have a lot of space to get messy. I took most of my clothes to a dry cleaner down the street and I ate out of plastic plates. As time progressed, however, I became someone that had more responsibility and more people to clean after. I had to get a bigger home and it seemed like cleaning the home – on my own – was much more challenging. This is where Handy came into the picture.

I have seen the benefit of a lot of a help from Handy over the last several months. I certainly need this company now that I have so much spring cleaning to do. I have actually seen the difference that it makes when I get these contractors to come along and help during the springtime.

It has never been much of an issue to get things put away because I can do this while the contracts get my house in order. There is mopping that has to be done. There is a refrigerator that needs to be wiped down on the inside and the outside. I don’t have the time to do all of this. I would much rather get someone to wash and fold my clothes while I ramble through old things that I am getting rid of.

Handy has been around for a while, but I discovered this company a couple of years ago. I have seen just how much this company has been able to transition from a small cleaning company to another type of organization that does a lot of different things. I know that there are people in place that are going to do things like electrical work if you need that. There are also people that work as contractors for Handy that do air conditioning work. This has given the company a chance to grow. It is like the best possible solution for home interior work. Handy even has painters. I have had several rooms painted by Handy contractors during the spring. Sometimes I get the urge to change the color of a room during the spring so I get Handy involved.

If you are planning on having a band or musical performance at your event, then you should plan to have the equipment provided unless the band is bringing their own equipment. You should have a back up PA system if the band is bringing their own equipment because technical problems often arise. The key to putting on a successful event is planning for the worst case scenario. In this example, you will likely still have a successful event even if the band’s PA system fails because you have your own equipment.

Other examples of items to put on your event checklist are: securing a venue, inviting guests and marketing outreach. There are plenty of important variables involved in event planning.
