Jeremy Goldstein, a New York City lawyer, wants to help people who have a mental illness. The biggest way he does so is by supporting the nonprofit Fountain House including serving on its board of directors.

Fountain House is a nonprofit which designed a self-help program for both men and women. They are working to recover from a major mental illness including completing educations, building professional skills, and finding employment. Jeremy Goldstein says that mental health is an issue that is affecting people around the world and he gladly supports Fountain House because of the good work they do.

The first wine dinner was held on May 22nd at the upscale NoMad Hotel. The wine they drank was the best that Chateau Latour offers. It turned into one of New York City’s top fundraisers of 2017.

As this event was so popular they decided to do a repeat which was held on May 31st. All of the money that was raised went directly to Fountain House and the people it helps.

Fountain House was established over 70 years ago. The people who have mental illnesses work with this nonprofit’s staff in order to operate all of the programs and advocate for themselves.

They also maintain the buildings owned by Fountain House, prepare all of the food, and provide administrative support services. They also work on community-based projects where they find new friends and develop their skill base, giving them a sense of purpose.

Jeremy Goldstein first joined this nonprofit’s board of directors eight years ago. He has been a lawyer for nearly 20 years and is a partner at his own law firm that he established four years ago. He attended the New York University School of Law and graduated in 1999.

His professional role is to provide legal advice to CEOs, executive teams, and compensation committees.

Jeremy Goldstein also works with individual C-level executives and provides advice about their careers and pay packages.

He says that in order to best advice these clients he tries to really get to know them. He feels that the better he knows a client the better he can meet their needs and give the best advice he can offer.

Are You Motivated Enough For Market America? Yes, You Are

There are a lot of quick sayings that offer a bit of advice for anyone struggling with their career, their income, and even their lives in general.

“Grab the bull by the horns.”

“Seize the day.”

“Roll up your sleeves and get to work.”

“If you’re not working toward your own success, then you are working for someone else’s success.”

Yes, that last one stings a little bit.

And, yes, all of these sayings have something to do with getting yourself motivated. So, how do you get out of your rut? How do you go outside of the envelope, think outside the box, find the means and the method to light a fire under your feet?

Well, there’s an interesting answer to that.

In the old days, when I began my career in psychology, I was told what the key to motivation really was that would push people to change.

Ready for this?

The answer is: It doesn’t matter. When you need to make a change, you could be motivated by a desire for financial independence. You could be motivated by the need for more freedom in your life. You could be looking for more autonomy. You could be sick and tired of working for someone else’s success or really tired at taking orders from someone who constantly thinks of themselves first.

If Market America is the answer to several of your life’s key or core dilemmas, then what’s the motivation that will light a fire under you to prompt you to make the changes you need to make?

Here are some of the stories that circulate from time to time:

There’s the woman who volunteered for every extra assignment that ever came upon the firm she worked for, putting in extra hours, working on Saturdays, taking work home, taking on that really time-consuming extra chore that came up every year … and she ended up getting Demoted instead of Promoted.

Yes, the company was cutting back, so they promoted some guy who had just joined the firm, then told everyone who was on the cutting block if they wanted to stay they would have to take a pay cut and do more to cover for those who had been laid off. Anyone ever had a career like that?

There was the man who drove into the belly of the beast every day, fighting a futile battle against time with several million other commuters trying to survive intense city traffic every day to get to a job he loved. When he had a mild heart attack the doctor asked him what job was giving him so much stress and curtailing the time he could be used to exercise. He answered, “It’s not the job, it’s just that agonizing, ugly, two-hour drive to work and back, robbing my time and stacking up the stress. It’s not the job – it’s getting there in the morning and getting home at night that’s killing me a little bit every day.”

He quit his job very soon after that.

Others work eight hours per day for 20 or 30 years and can’t save a dime. Others find the 45-year plan that will get them to retirement will only see them able to rest and relax when their lives are practically over and spent. They need a better income and they want to start enjoying life right away, not when it’s too late.

Market America Unfranchise owners have different stories to tell. They talk about setting their own schedule, sleeping as long as they want, being their own boss, but expanding their network so dramatically that it feels like the secondary rewards of work – meeting new people, learning new things – is finally starting to erase the memories of the ulcers their last jobs gave them.

One story, simple enough in the telling, involves a woman who lived with her family in a 1,100-square feet house – adequate, but hardly luxurious—and then switched career paths, choosing to develop and Unfranchise opportunity, instead. Now she lives – gets this, folks – in a 17,000 square-feet house with 12 bathrooms!

I don’t care who you are, that’s a lot of square feet and that’s a lot of bathrooms.

There are many ways to hit the glass ceiling. Women often face the inevitable crush of that glass ceiling simply by being a woman working in a man’s world. They are given a smaller salary than their male co-workers from day one, then they get overlooked with the opportunity for a promotion comes along.

As awkward as this may sound, women are not the only ones who get overlooked when a promotion comes along. Yes, they are summarily rejected at times, dismissed out of hand. But companies generally promote one person at a time, so there are many men who are also passed by.

It may be your training can only get you so far. Maybe it’s a two-year degree you have, while a promotion requires a four-year degree. Maybe it’s some obscure reason – the boss just doesn’t think you’re management material. What do you do?

Well, water is the universal solvent and working for yourself is the universal solution to many hurdles, including income and status limitations or simply being the unlucky one who is never going to get that promotion, anyway.

You’ll never hear an Unfranchise developer complain about their boss and you’ll rarely (if ever) hear of one say they feel left out in the cold. Market America is a marketing/sales company at its core, but it is world famous for its incredible conference and training meetings, where you can meet tens, hundreds and thousands of fellow Unfranchise developers. The support this company offers is simply unparalleled. They offer training, training, training and then some more. Their system relies on networking, networking, networking, which means your connections to other people will increase, if not vastly improve once you get the ball rolling.

And why should you do this? That’s entirely up to you. Your motivation belongs to you. If it gets you started, isn’t that enough?

In addition to his other roles at this company, he is on its board of directors and that of several of its subsidiaries.

OSI Group has existing food brands in Australia which are Colonial Farm, La Ionica, Golden Farms, and Bannockburn. Turi Foods is a family-owned business and is Australia’s largest poultry processor.

When the new company launched, David McDonald released a statement in which he said that both companies behind Turosi have strong reputations with their Australian customers. He saw enormous potential with this new company with many ways they could attain new opportunities. Both companies continued to operate their food processing factories in Australia such as OSI Group’s in Victoria, QLD, and NSW. Visit their website: http://officialdavidmcdonald.com/

Nick Vertucci Explains How Being Good In Real Estate Carried Over To His Poker Game

Nick Vertucci is a Southern Californian entrepreneur who owns and operates a real estate school, Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy. He teaches people his methods of how to make money buying homes, renovating them, getting renters, and eventually selling the homes for a big profit. He wrote a book about his life and career as the chief executive officer of NV Real Estate Academy that came out in 2018, “Seven Figure Decisions“.

What a lot of people don’t know about Nick Vertucci is that he’s also a professional poker player. He has participated in poker events in California and Las Vegas. His first tournament took place on September 26, 2004. This was a No-Limit Hold’em Championship in which he took eighth place, earning $7,530 in winnings.

He had appeared on the “Moving Violations” poker show that ran from 2007 to 2011. He played in a tournament that included Don Cheadle, Robert Sanchez, Antonio Esfandiari, and Jennifer Tilly among other top-performing poker players. They played Poker After Dark and while Nick Vertucci did very well it was Antonio Esfandiari who ended up becoming the biggest winner.

Other people that Nick Vertucci has played poker with include Ben Affleck, James Woods, Phil Helmuth, Mike Matauso, David Benyamine, and Kenny Tran. He says that his skills in real estate carry over to his poker game in a number of ways. First is that he learned how to read people and so he is pretty good at calling other player’s bluffs. In real estate, he had to bluff broker’s so that he could buy houses on more favorable terms.

Another thing that helps him play poker is knowing how to be adaptable. There are going to be a lot of unexpected changes that take place during the course of a poker tournament, just like there is when buying and selling real estate. He says that poker players need to know ahead of time how to deal with unexpected events and make progress towards being the big winner of the night.

José Auriemo Neto, JHSF CEO, Files for IPO

José Auriemo Neto is the president of JHSF. Although he is still quite young, years of working in the family business has allowed him to gain a lot of experience as well as a solid vision of the market. Since he was young, he has always displayed strong leadership qualities. This is especially evident through his participation in the International Youth Coexistence summit held in Japan.

Although he was already working as the parking administrator at JHSF, José Auriemo Neto continued to pursue Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of Sao Paulo. Unfortunately, his passion for JHSF prevented him from completing his course. Instead, he eventually chose to follow in the steps of his father, Fabio Auriemo the then head of JHSF.

Under the administration and management of José Auriemo Neto, JHSF has evolved a lot especially in recent years. In fact, the changes in the company are the reason for the outlets segments getting consolidated all over the country. For the second time in just four years, the company is expanding. This retail company has managed to solidify its customer base which is largely made up of class A consumers (55%).

In February, 2018, the JHSF with José Auriemo Neto at its helm started to initiate a public stock offering. Within that one month, the company managed to raise an impressive R $ 1 billion. Unfortunately due to the uncertainty surrounding the electoral period in Brazil, the Brazilian stock exchange market has not been very receptive to their stock offers in recent months.

In July, 2018, JHSF interrupted its stock exchange process for the negotiation and sale of its minority interests to XP Malls in four of its assets: Shopping Cidade Jardim (Sao Paulo), Shopping Bela Vista (Salvador), Shopping Ponta Negra (Manaus) and Catarina Fashion Outlet. This was a very successful operation for JHSF. In fact, this operation was so successful that the company managed to raise an impressive R $640 million- all this under the administration of José Auriemo Neto.

The Catarina outlet is among the latest outlets to be inaugurated by the company. It was inaugurated in October 2014 and underwent its first expansion in 2015.

These investments will help further and improve the clinical needs of the company. The funding is very important because everyday more and more are dying. It is important to have this funding because a company cannot move without money.



With the funding he received, he can now propel his cause forward and help more people who are suffering from this disease. Through advancements in his clinical research and laboratory trials that these investments will open doors to.

The Vital Role Social Media Analytics Play In the Highly Competitive Global Business Arena

The internet can be a hostile terrain of information flow that for the untutored and the weary may seem like an unchartered frontier especially for the business minded. Not all trading enterprises manage to get a firm foothold on the global business arena that the internet readily provides for the simply reason that a majority of entrepreneurs who wish to have a piece of the action hardly understand the rules that govern online transactions.

Of particular note is the failure by many an enterprising individual to understand the rules of social media engagement, and how a thorough grasp of social media analytics, like those explained in an insightful NetBase article presently doing the rounds on the web, can produce a competitive edge over the competition. It is now an open secret to everyone that the ubiquitous web-based social media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter etc. are an absolutely necessary tool for buying and selling goods on an international scale.

There is cut-throat business competition occasioned by the globalization of all sorts of commercial activities. And there is no gainsaying that many traders view the internet, as either a blessing or a curse, depending on which side of the success-failure divide they find themselves. However, the truth is that any traders who optimize the use of social media to spread word about the products and services they offer, perform immensely well on the internet market.


The Big Question

The biggest question many individuals and international brands, big or small grapple with is how they can unearth, determine and estimate the effectiveness of the social media analysis they should trust, notwithstanding the difficulties of identifying the most suitable tools to use. Another snake in the social platform pit which effectively bars the faint-hearted is determining the right budget to use. A glance at what the multinational giants spend can make an upstart quail back in fear!

But that need not be the case because supporting analytic agencies like NetBase are quietly watching and ready to pounce on you from the trading sidelines with free but valuable advice. There are numerous platforms that provide analysis compatible with any budget size. So you don’t have to sit back biting your nails and waiting for a miracle to happen!


Wait a Minute

What is meant by social platform analytics? According to the experts from NetBase, the term simply means the art of collecting data for helping in business decision-making from all online sources but specifically from the major social channels. The analysis take different forms, however, the bottom line is to assist all businesses to apply appropriate insights for both short and long term success strategies.


Although the analytics might come across to many as the study of space technology due to the complexities involved, basically all it takes are three levels namely:

A} Identification of basic goals of the business.

B}The determination of the main social performance indicators or KPIs {Key Social Performance Indicators}

C} The measurement and analysis of social data.


Just to put it briefly, A above means the act of imparting purpose to your analytics by setting clear objectives for the business, improving traffic, creative positive brand awareness and building downloads. B means knowing the kind of metrics that contribute to failure or success, which might vary depending on the goals of the business. In a nutshell, you must understand the rules of social engagement; try to establish the attitude of the market to your brand, your services or your products. No less important, is your ability to convert the traffic into the social channels you use into active sales.


Lastly, the minute you understand what counts, you then need to apply one of the many tools recommended by the gurus for the analysis of real data to evaluate the nature of your business with a view to making the right adjustments and decisions.
