    Remarkable Leaders Radio: 5 Steps to Social Media Success

    in Business

    Picture this scenario: An employee gets charged with a serious offense and the company’s name gets mentioned repeatedly in the news reports.  The reporters found the connection to your organization by scanning through Social Media.
    Or this scenario: A subcontractor tweets (or posts pictures) celebrating the conclusion of a major, confidential project. This alerts competitors, customers, and suppliers, resulting in millions of dollars of lost sales.
    Or this one: Someone looks at your Facebook (or LinkedIn) profile, peruses your “friends” to determine your mother’s maiden name, then grabs your birth date and other freely available personal details. Then they call your bank and gain access to your account by “verifying” your identity.
    The above represents just a few of the challenges we face from both a business and personal standpoint when we enter the vast and exciting world of social media and the Internet.  The question is simply this . . . how do we enter these waters without being bitten?
    Joining me this afternoon on the new Remarkable Leaders Radio Show is Randall Craig, who is one of the leading social media experts in the country to talk about what we need to do to protect ourselves from this risks without isolating ourselves from the opportunities the world of social media provides.

    SMB Roundtable: Oracle Funds' Laurence Isaac Balter

    in Business

    The SMB Roundtable: Laurence Isaac Balter, Fund Manager, Oracle Mutual Fund will be discussing the economy & small business with Valcor CEO David H. Sussman.
     
    BIO: Laurence began his impressive career after receiving his B.Sc. in Physics and Mathematics, and landed his first job as financial analyst for Hawaiian Airlines at the age of 21. 

    Armed with knowledge and ambition, he ventured on his own to start an airline in Los Angeles. Fast forward 8 years later and Laurence had built Sunshine Airlines into the largest solely owned commercial regional air carrier based in Southern California, operating 15 commuter aircraft, and as the primary subcontractor freight operation for FedEx and UPS.

    While embarking on this growth path, Laurence made a lasting connection with Warren Buffett. Mr. Buffett was a big influence, as that relationship was noted in a December 1997 article in Fortune Magazine as an early shareholder. 

    He built the #1 producing independent family wealth office in Hawaii (for a publically traded major brokerage firm). He was also appointed by Governor Linda Lingle as Transportation Commissioner, overseeing the largest employer in the State. 

    As Principal of Oracle Investment Research, his approach to investing is quantitative, disciplined and unemotional. 

    Laurence is an active member of Angel Flight, a non-profit organization dedicated to transporting patients in his own personal aircraft from small towns to receive medical care at major hospitals.

  • Facts to Study Before Leasing Construction Equipment

    in Business

    The construction business begins to recover on or after a depressed market and rentals of project equipment increase, Jakarta, Indonesia is experiencing the significant changes. You might be renting equipment for an impending project, may you may be the owner, the principal contractor, or specialty trade subcontractor. Here are some vital facts according to AXIS Capital, Inc. a group of companies grounded in Grand Island, Nebraska to remember.


    According to the lease contract, the lessee is normally responsible to get insurance coverage for the equipment, in the name of the lessee and the lessor mutually. Not having the required coverage prepared in the pursuant to the conditions of a lease contract signifies that you are in charge for damage or loss of the equipment. In addition to this, be cautious of insurance fraud.


    Not doing a complete graphic and efficacy review of a rental equipment may possibly imply that you could be assumed liable for current dents or damages in the machine. If this is not recorded and verified before the receiving of equipment. You can prevent misunderstanding by doing an in-depth check up while recording every single visual or operating concern re the equipment. Do an examination together with the lessor, give the lessor a report and record of all present damage, and have your own copy. Moreover, you must discard it if it seems to be not fully functional.

  • Points to Think through When Leasing Construction Equipment

    in Business

    As the construction industry begins to recover from a down market, rentals of project equipment are on progress. You may very well be renting equipment for use on an upcoming project whether you are an owner, principal contractor, or specialty trade subcontractor.  Here are significant points to remember by AXIS Capital, Inc., a group of companies headquartered in Grand Island, Nebraska (This Company is a Direct Lender providing quality equipment leasing/financing services along with superior customer service. The company also serves Southeast Asian countries such as KL Malaysia, Jakarta Indonesia, Bangkok Thailand, Singapore and many more.)


    Warning! Do not acknowledge the equipment without systematically examining it first. If you do not do a full visual and utility inspection on a rental product could mean that you may be held   accountable for present damages or defects in the equipment. If a defect is not documented previous to receipt of equipment, it will be your word in contradiction of the lessor’s—and the lessor is possible to have advantageous contract language on its side. The best way to get out of this fight is to conduct a full inspection while taping or taking photos every visual or operational issue with the equipment. Run the inspection in the together with the lessor, offer the lessor with documentation or notes of all present damage, and keep a copy of the documentation. Also be certain to discard the equipment if it does not appear to be completely functional.
