Contrary to what some people may believe, there are a lot of people that help others. However, they do it for many different reasons. For one thing, people help others for reasons that are not always good. For instance, one of the reasons that some people help others is to get something from the people they help. Then there are those that are not sure of why they are helping people. One thing that people need to make sure they understand when they are helping people is that their help is not guaranteed to make the difference they want. Also, if they really want to help others, they have to be in it for the long haul.
Betsy DeVos is someone that is committed to helping others. For starters, she has seen an issue that has hurt her heart towards the children that she wants to help. She has seen that a lot of the children have no choice but to go to schools in neighborhoods that are low in income. Therefore, they have to struggle a little more than others in better school districts. Fortunately, Betsy DeVos has decided to come up with a plan that is going to make things better for the students.
Among the plans she has is school choice. This is to make it easier for parents to enroll their children in schools that are in safer communities. She is bring attention to alternative forms of schooling so that parents can know their options and make sure that their children are getting the safest option for their education.

Betsy DeVos knows that it takes a lot of work in order for her to get her plans off the ground. She also knows that it is not going to help everyone. However, her hope is that she makes some kind of difference in the lives of others. One thing that she wants to do is bring forth a long term change that is going to benefit the lives of children for generations to come. One thing that makes her an example among philanthropists is that she thinks things through.

Bob Reina founded Talk Fusion about 9 years ago, and during this time he’s helped it become an innovation that’s helped businesses and individuals change lives. Talk Fusion uses a special kind of technology that allows users to place personal videos in emails without separately attaching them, or embedding from a separate webpage. But the company has now developed even more mass communication tools for helping businesses and non-profit organizations stay in touch with their followers. Reina is a philanthropist in his Tampa, FL community and now he’s encouraging Talk Fusion associates to change lives through the option to donate an account to any charity they wish. That charity then gets access to all of Talk Fusion’s programs and features. This program has helped many humanitarian organizations around the world in recent years.
Bob Reina probably had no idea just how powerful Talk Fusion would become when he first founded it. Reina is formerly a police officer, a youth sports coach, and a father who was just looking for an idea to start his own business, something he had longed to do since quitting his old job. He got the answer around 2004 when he was traveling and looking at a house that caught his attention. He had taken videos of the house and wanted to send them back to his family, but couldn’t do so because they were too big to send as email attachments. So he got the idea for software that could turn videos into transferrable emails.
It took quite some time to develop, but Reina and his friend were able to develop the video email program and it became the start of their new company, Talk Fusion. Talk Fusion started providing video newsletter services, and eventually added signup forms, web conferencing, live video chat, and now even a web RTC recorder. Talk Fusion also has 30-day free trials that users can signup for with full access to programs. Talk Fusion associates can resell Talk Fusion products and earn commissions based on sales volume, and even qualify for various rewards programs.
I believe that the best type of success can be achieved by entrepreneurs who are philanthropic and charitable. People who find a way to make a profitable business out of what they enjoy tend to be the happiest people. One reason is that they are very passionate about what they do. As a result, they tend to work a little harder at their jobs. This also brings them some kind of satisfaction that leaves room for their compassion. As a result, they contribute to causes like the John F. Kennedy Center for the Arts. The fundraiser that was started at that place for a project has surpassed its goals thanks to the contributions of many.

One of the contributors is Dick DeVos. Dick has contributed money up to the millions when he gave to the fundraiser. He is also no stranger to hard work as his LinkedIn clearly demonstrates. He has been working for his family business starting as a child. He was one of the greeters of the company when it was held in their home basement. This has introduced him into the world of business. He was able to learn how business works and also how to be an effective leader.
He has discovered his passion at a young age to make contributions to society. He has not only founded Michigan’s first aviation high school, but he and his wife established the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation to make charitable donations on behalf of themselves and Dick’s business. This is a very important trait to have when going into business. One has to have a love for people and a generous spirit. If one is all about selfishness, then he is going to be limited in his success no matter how far he goes. Dick’s success has proven to be unlimited even as he struck out in his own business ventures. This is due to his ability to work tirelessly for hours at a time and his willingness to keep people satisfied and give to the people that are at a disadvantage. But don’t take my word for it, listen to the grateful responses of kids who benefited from scholarships funded by the DeVos foundation in the video below.
Business owners often have the freedom to pursue their goals. They also are the most able to send forth money to charitable organizations. They also have more emotional energy in order to care about others that are not as fortunate as they are. At the same time, they have the self respect in order to not allow people to walk all over them. They can also direct others to different resources like the JFK Center for the Arts where they can make contributions. This project will provide plenty of new opportunities.
