Living In A Transparent World: College Athletes

Living in a Fish Bowl; College Life as an Athlete
College sports are a big part of college life and is also a billion dollar business that generates revenue for the school and for the athlete. Athletes receive many benefits from playing college sports including name recognition and perks. Because college athletes are pretty much in a fish bowl, they have to be specially careful with the impression they make to others. The biggest issue is that with the benefits come some risks.

The reality is according to an blog post by Recruiting Realities that most young teenagers don’t think about what they post on social media. There are 9 Social Media Dos and Don’ts for Student Athletes that college athletes need to adhere to or risk a ruined reputation or worse.

Transparency can be a good thing and may open doors but could also backfire if caught doing something illegal or damaging. College athletes need to remember that anything they say and do might be taken the wrong way at anytime. The best prevention according to some social media experts is to limit time on social media and monitor behavior outside social media. If you need to use a monitoring product like BrandYourself do it. Student athletes can be proactive in owning what you say on social media, understanding that social media is an effective tool and stay consistent with the message you want to convey about yourself.

How to Grow From A Reputation Crisis

Status Labs is an online reputation management firm that has been making waves in a good way for the past couple of years. Led by CEO Darius Fisher, Status Labs has grown exponentially while grabbing clients from over 25 different countries. In a twist of irony, perhaps, Status Labs suffered from their own reputation crises a few years ago thanks to a former employee behaving inappropriately outside of his role at Status Labs. How did Status Labs respond? The same way that they advise their own clients.

When Fisher saw that Status Labs was facing a potential reputation problem a couple of years ago the company immediately made some proactive moves.

The first thing that Status Labs did was change the structure of their leadership, bringing in fresh blood at the top of the ladder. Next the company immediately went on the PR offensive by re-establishing themselves as a valuable member of their local community. This took the form in Status Labs reaching out to take part in several important local charities including: Caritas, Urban Roots, The Capital Food Bank of Texas and more. Cementing themselves as a company that gives back to the community makes it easier for the community to be more forgiving in the future.

Next up Fisher and the rest of Status Labs took a long inward look at the culture in their own office. Fisher knew that taking care of their employees should become priority number one. Giving stock options, catering lunches on Friday, and allowing trained pets in the office were just a few of the perks that were implemented. These things, along with company outings, made for a close knit group at the office and thus a better product at the end of the day.

Going through a reputation crisis isn’t exactly all bad so long as you learn from it. The way that Status Labs bounced back is an example of how to handle any sort of issue that gets thrown your way.

An Interview with Thor Halvorssen Attempts to Explain Sanders’ Socialim

Thor Halvorssen is the founder of the Human Rights Foundation, and recently, on The Intelligence Report with Trish Regan, Mr. Halvorssen discussed Bernie Sanders’ Socialist agenda and it’s effect on America. Bernie Sanders opinions have even caused unrest in the liberal party to which he belongs.

 

Mr. Halvorssen stands in defense of many countries around the world who presently employ socialism. A pure socialistic country is founded on those principles, but he states that they cannot be run successfully as Democratic Socialism, which is what Bernie is introducing. The difference between the two types is that Democratic Socialism has a leader or president overseeing the government.

 

A country such as Venezuela is a perfect example of dysfunctional socialism. The economy there is in big trouble, and as the government tries to bring it back into balance, the country is experiencing extremely high inflammation of over 500 percent during the past year. The leaders are now setting the prices for goods and commerce, and Venezuela is in critical shape.

 

Thor Halvorssen is a young conservative who is standing for the democratic rights of American citizens. Fox News also has a conservative bias, so Thor represents that position expertly, and human rights are upheld through his voice.

 

Socialism in American is displayed in programs such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Road Systems and the Veteran’s Administration, and they are already established. The citizens trust and rely on these programs, but they despise the term “socialism.”

 

Political polls that have been conducted over the years reveal that 45 percent of Americans would vote for an atheist before they would vote for a socialist because the term socialist is too offensive.

 

Thor explained that Bernie was introducing Democratic Socialism for Americans, and in a Democracy that simply would not be acceptable for true Americans accustomed to democracy with some socialistic groups.

The Benefit of a Compliance Officer

In present day, I have found that compliance offers often go hand in hand with public as well as private industries. Compliance officers are often relied on in order to provide fast and easy solutions as well as fix potential fraud. Though a compliance officer is not often heard of, they exist in every major corporation for that sole purpose. They are the risk managers that allow the company to continue to grow. The profession has not been around long, yet has grown exponentially in the last 20 years of being a recognized profession. In present day, the most federal and state regulations there are, the higher demand there is for compliance officers.

Industries that have the highest demand for compliance officers are industries that are often highly regulated such as banking, insurance, and even the gaming industry. Compliance officers are crucial for preventing and fixing mistakes that can result in legal actions against the company. All in all, a compliance officer is given a set of federal and state laws that the compliance officer has the job of making sure are followed by the company. As this profession in growing rapidly, there are even now majors that can be pursued in University that allows individuals to study specifically to become a compliance officer.

Compliance officers do only regulate risk as well as manage any risk, compliance officers are trained specifically to fix to problem at hand and to fix any damage. One specific example that I have of a risk management professional is Helane Morrison of Hall Capital. Helane Morrison, though not intentionally become a compliance officer, has used her strong legal background in order to help the companies she works for to fix any potential problem that could prevent further growth and expansion. Her job is seen as crucial to Hall Capital as she not only manages risk, but also fixes it.

Helane Morrison joined Hall Capital Partners in 2007 and has since then assisted the company immensely. This means that she is skilled in finding the problem within the company and fixing it immediately before any actions can be taken against her company. With Ms. Morrison’s experience in both the public as well as the private sector, she has proven to be invaluable to the company,

The most important step of the M&A process is an accurate valuation of the net value of an interesting company, ripe for such a change. Many people are unaware the best expertise in evaluating and analyzing a business are investment bankers, especially well seasoned veterans of M&A research, such as Martin Lustgarten. He is tops in his field with a track record for detecting real value in a company as opposed to simply believing the target companies press releases and public-facing spiel.

 

Lustgarten considers every aspect of a likely M&A candidate company. He looks at the property owned, the inventory kept, and all the liquid assets a business possesses in order to arrive at an accurate valuation for it in the market. This work requires a sort of Michelangelo Man, in that knowledge and skills in several different areas are required to do a comprehensive job as a M&A analyst. He has many successful examples of his work for many happy clients. They made the smart choice of hiring Lustgarten to perform part of the “due diligence” a Board of Directors requires before committing to either acquiring a target company or merging the business with that company.

 

As one of the best asset determination professionals in America, Martin Lustgarten has made a great career and built up his own investment bank. In his long career, innumerable client businesses have brought him in to apply his detailed process and produce a final valuation report that they can rely upon to help make the final M&A decisions. He has also assisted many private businesses in going public on stock markets. Some of his work involves helping clients make complex transactions with stocks, bonds, and assets, and always finding value where the company’s management has missed it.

A Review of POP TV’s Queens of Drama

Queens Of Drama is a great tv series that I anticipated watching for a very long time. I will do my best not to spoil anything in this review! In short, this show is a reality drama television program in America. One thing I like about this particular show are the stars. Some of these stars are Donna Mills, Chrystee Pharris, Vanessa Marcil,Hunter Tylo, Lindsay Hartley, and Crystal Hunt. My personal favorite person on this show is Crystal Hunt. The running time of the show is 30 minutes. I think this is a very good length for a reality show like this one. By the way, it is a very exciting and dramatic experience to watch this show. I have watched every single episode many times. I would strongly recommend you watch the first 10 episodes on season 1 first because they are extremely interesting. This is an amazing show for anyone looking to watch a reality show in their free time!

Crystal Hunt has a very sound and interesting career. Her career began when she started to appear in beauty pageants when she was just 2 years old. Her Facebook following shows Crystal Hunt is no stranger to stardom. One of her main talents is acting so she also started appearing in commercials. One of these advertisements was for NSYNC. This commercial was about the prevention of drug use. She was very young when she starred in this video, but she did an amazing job.

From there Crystal Hunt starred in many different soap operas. One of the first soap operas Crystal Hunt starred in was Guiding Light. She played a popular character named Lizzie Spaulding. With this performance, as well as a few others, she got a Daytime Emmy Nomination. Hunt also appeared in two major films. These movies are Sydney White and The Derby Stallion. Crystal went on to appear in a few more shows.
