Make of Break With Terry Baltes

Many names are out there in terms of hospitality and real estate. One, for example, is Terry Baltes. He is, for one, the owner and founder of BALTES COMMERCIAL REALTY LTD.

Mr. Baltes’ company is based in Dayton. He resides there himself. Both he and his company are but one sole personal & business name in the business of real estate and customer hospitality, of which many may be remembered….due to their quality and way of treating others. For that is what will really make or break them, as they say.

How attentive is a business to the details? How integrated are the employees and executives to carrying out such details, and the overall mission objectives of the company at large? These questions must be asked by any who are willing to succeed in any business great or small, but I specifically refer to that of the hotel real estate industry here.

According to this unique and wonderfully written online article piece listed above, which was released just earlier in July of this very year, I quote:
“As hotel guests increasingly come to expect amenities that used to be special perks, such as free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfasts and premium bed linens, the industry may be reaching a customer satisfaction plateau, according to the J.D. Power 2016 North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index Study,SM released….” (pg. 1, paragraph 1)

What this goes to show is that a 20 year study has gone a long way in attempting to measure overall guest satisfaction within these businesses. Many factors have been accounted for. They include check in and check out experience, food and beverage service & quality, length of stay, and much more!

Adam Goldenberg, Don Ressler, And The Creation Of JustFab

Adam Goldenberg was a child prodigy when it comes to business. At age 13, while other young teens were busy playing video games, Goldenberg took the money from his Bar Mitzvah and started his first company. It was a bulletin board service hosted on the internet. In 1996, two years later, Goldenberg transformed the website and made it into a place for people to get together and play games. It was called Gamer’s Alliance. By the next year, Gamer’s Alliance was a huge success and Brett Brewer, the president and founder of Intermix, bought the site from then 17 year old Adam Goldenberg.

Impressed with the young Goldenberg’s business savvy, Intermix offered him a job. Two years later Adam Goldenberg made history when at age 19 he was promoted to COO of Intermix. He became the youngest person to be the COO of a publicly owned company. For many people that would have been the end of the story. But for Adam Goldenberg, it was just the beginning. Almost 12 months later, Intermix purchased a start-up focused on health and fitness called Don Ressler, founder of, and Adam Goldenberg worked well together at Intermix. Eventually Goldenberg and Ressler teamed up create Alena Media, a performance advertising and e-commerce company. It generated millions of dollars and soon parent company Intermix along with Alena Media were purchased by News Corp.

When Intermix and Alena Media were sold in 2005, Adam Goldenberg was only 25 years old. Goldenberg and Ressler decided to start a new business together. They ended up starting several of them. The first was the brand building company Brand Ideas. They also started Intelligent Beauty, an online cosmetics and skincare marketplace, and SENSA, a weight-loss system. The companies were very profitable. In 2010, Goldberg and Ressler another company. It was called JustFab and was an online subscription clothing retailer.

Dick DeVos Among People That Are Pushing the Fundraiser Past its Goals

When running a fundraiser, it is an exhilarating feeling when the goal for funding is reached. However, when it gets past that goal, that can bring about even more hope. The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts is one of the fundraisers that have reached and passed its goals. This is thanks for some very big givers in the fundraiser. A lot of entrepreneurs, business owners, and otherwise wealthy people can be really generous when it comes to giving. The only thing is that the cause has to be deemed worthy of such an amount given. If it is, then it will receive tons of funding from donors.

Among the people that have given so generously is Dick DeVos, a philanthropist and entrepreneur who has a history of owning franchises and working in higher level positions in different companies. Among the companies that he has worked in high level positions at is Amway Corporations. The company that was started by his father which provided people with household and hygiene products. Dick DeVos has eventually worked for the company as Vice President. He would move on to become one of the owners of the Orlando Magic Basketball franchise. Afterwards, he would get involved in political activities.

Dick DeVos is known for his charity which he uses to fund education projects among other things. With his nonprofit charity foundation, he is interested in providing funds to faith based organizations. He runs the nonprofit charity organization with his wife Betsy DeVos. His wife Betsy is a graduate of Holland Christian High School and Calvin College. Dick and Betsy take their faith very seriously and make it an important part of their lives, marriage and every important decision that they make. Among the principles that they have learned is generosity, and it shows in the efforts that they make in donating to different charitable causes.

Amethyst The Minature Dachshund Eats Beneful Incredibites And Beneful Dog Treats

My Minature Dachshund named Amethyst can only eat Beneful dog food due to the fact that she is so small and it is extremely hard to find any other dog food out there that is made in small pieces that she can digest. Beneful dog food is truly one of the best dog food brands out there because not only do they have dog food for small dogs like Amethyst but they also offer dog food for big dogs, active dogs, and even overweight dogs. The type of Beneful dog food that I buy on Amazon for Amethyst is called Beneful incredibites. Beneful incredibites dog food is the best dog food option out there for Amethyst and the best part about it is that it comes in different flavors so Amethyst won’t get sick of eating the same flavor of dog food each day. Amethyst currently eats Beneful incredibites in the dry dog food version which comes in both a beef flavor and a chicken flavor. Beneful incredibites also comes in a wet dog food version but Amethyst prefers dry dog food. Beneful also has a great assortment of different types of dog treats. They have treats [] in all different flavors for Amethyst to enjoy but they also have dog treats that are made to help keep Amethyst’s teeth clean and healthy. The three types of dog treats that I buy on Walmart for Amethyst are Beneful baked delights hugs, baked delights stars, and dental ridges. Beneful dental ridges are the dog treat that they offer that keeps Amethyst’s teeth healthy and pearly white. Baked delights hugs treats are not like every other treat out there due to the fact that they are packed with flavor in every bite. Baked delights hugs dog treats are beef and cheese flavored. Baked delights stars are not just dog treats that are chicken and cheese flavored but they are also shaped like stars. Many dog treats are boring looking and not even close to being packed with flavor but this isn’t the case with Beneful dog treats. I am so glad that Beneful makes dog food that Amethyst can eat.

She has displayed the value of confidence in a business world. She is an inspiration to many people.

Skout is one social media platform that actually brings people together. Many members of Skout have a very positive experience that brings them back. The platform can be accessed online. Skout also has apps that could be downloaded for iPhone and Android smartphones. People can also access it from their tablets. Skout not only inspires people to connect on levels beyond the online community, but they also inspire to carry out positive acts in their community. Communities often gather together to help out with emergencies. For instance, members in the Philippines have gathered together to help out with a local member that is having medical problems.

Can Venezuela Ever Draw In Foreign Investment Again?

The local news courtesy of Atodomomento is filled with salacious reports about the impending collapse of Venezuela’s economy. The one and only silver lining to this catastrophe is the country would be able to rebuild in a manner that avoids many of the mistakes done previously.
The rebuilding process, however, is hardly going to occur in an expedient amount of time. A lot of money has to come into the country in order to reverse the effects of the long-lasting horrific economic depression.

In order for the economy to rebuild itself, foreign investment is crucial. A serious question is going to be asked among many corporations throughout the world. Is it safe to invest in Venezuela asks expert Danilo Diaz Granados? Considering the disaster that has befallen the country, many investors are probably going to be more confident taking their money elsewhere.

Currently, Coca-Cola has had to shut down a large part of its operations in Venezuela. Revenues immediately slowed due to a sugar shortage. Coca-Cola can still sell Diet Coke, but no company wants to deal with such outrageous, money-losing volatility. Trying to get foreign dollars into Venezuela is going to take a long time. The country needs hard currency and investment capital now.

Regardless, foreign companies and governments have to think of their own well-being. It is no one’s primary concern to bring money into Venezuela solely to give the country’s economy a slight boost.
