One thing in life is for certain: change is going to happen. Now, this is something that frightens and scares a lot of people. They might have grown comfortable and content with a certain way of life. They want to keep things at the status quo. However, that does not leave any room for growth both as a company and as an individual. If there is anyone that understands that, it is Bob Reina of Talk Fusion. He founded and created the company in 2007 because he knew there was a void out there that needed filling and he wanted to be the person to fill that void for others.
The void was happiness. A lot of people were stuck in jobs or suits and they were just plain miserable. As the economy got worse and worse, a lot of people were forced to take jobs that did not bring out the best in them. In fact, it was the opposite. It made them angry people. They started to resent going to work and they dreaded the sound of the alarm clock. Bob Reina saw how tech was changing, and he wanted to change with it. With Talk Fusion, it allowed people the glorious chance to work from home.
This allows them to once again be happy, live out their dreams, and spend time with the people that matter the most to them. That is a tremendous feeling, to say the least. It opens up doors they probably thought were long closed. It all starts with voice, data, and communication, which is something that Talk Fusion excels at, to say the least.
They are getting recognized for this by the the Technology Marketing Corporation. They have won the 2016 Communications Solutions Product Of The Year Award, which is their second award from this company in the year 2016.
It only goes to show that 2017 is going to be incredible for Talk Fusion and everyone that uses it. Right now, there are thirty-day free trials for folks that want to fully experience Talk Fusion and all of its benefits.
Recently, Darius Fisher, CEO of Status Labs, an online reputation management firm, sat down with Daniel Budzinski on the DreamCast podcast. Mr. Fisher touched on a wide range of issues, including his early start in business and how he balances a hectic work schedule with his personal life.
A chance encounter leads to a career
Mr. Fisher, 31, was originally from New York. Born in Manhattan, the entrepreneur was raised in a loving household by parents which prioritized education and encouraged their son to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities and life experiences.
After high school, Fisher moved to California, where he pursued a degree in economics. It was during college that he first realized that he had a knack for running and building his own businesses. He largely supported himself through college by selling used furniture on Craigslist that he bought from distressed sellers. This experience sealed his love for self-employment.
Darius Fisher relates how, through sheer luck, he was at a bar with some of his friends when he met a lady who was in political consulting. It so happened that she was looking for interns and encouraged Mr. Fisher and his friends to apply. Being just 22 and recently out of work, Fisher jumped on the opportunity. Soon he was rubbing shoulders with some of the state’s heaviest political players. The young Fisher, who says that he didn’t even know what political consulting was at the time, spent the next few months making lasting connections with political consultants, lobbyists and crisis managers. This set him on the course to becoming an entrepreneur in the online reputation management space.
He saw the sums that were being paid for managing the reputations of high-profile individuals. Yet many of the consultants and other professionals he worked with were much older, having little to no understanding of the many different technology channels that were becoming ever more important to people’s overall reputation.
Fisher saw that, by concentrating solely on the all-important area of online reputation management, he could create a niche in which there were very few competitors and no one who really knew what they were doing. He eventually founded Status Labs and, in so doing, drove his company to become the nation’s number-one online reputation management firm.

What are Sam Tabar’s investment tips for 2017? Are people willing to make financial solutions for this year? Apparently so. Tabar, who hails from Columbia Law School, and is a well-known attorney and strategist, says that for those looking to increase their net worth, they need to properly plan for retirement. But the investment world can also overwhelm these newcomers.
But Tabar comes off as cautionary. For people who want to get their portfolios filled out, commodity trading investing is not as safe as mutual funds and more traditional bets. For the new person to investing, he does not recommend commodity trading, referring to it as a volatile sector.
But what is most important for an investor? A properly diverse portfolio.
Tabor recommends this because newcomers can get caught up in new and exciting investments but all good things come to an end. Make sure to not have all your eggs in one basket is what he is saying to newbies. Newby investors want to be available when a hot stock blows in.
Tabor has one piece of advice on investing though that stands out from the rest: The ‘present’ is the best time to start investing. Don’t look back one day and think ‘you wish you had!’
Tabor is currently working out of New York City as a prominent attorney and capital strategist.After graduating from Columbia Law School, Tabar worked as an Associate at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP. While he was with that firm, he began more closely counseling clients on how to form a successful hedge fund as well as issue with employment, investment management agreements, private placement memoranda, regulatory and compliance issues and side letters.
Tabor later joined SPARK Group Co/PMA Investment Advisors, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP before leaving that firm in 2014.

Eventually, Brian Bonar found the perfect company to showcase his expertise when he joined the impressive Dalrada business in 1992 as Director of Technology Sales in 1992.

In today’s world, investing has often become synonymous with only rich people or finance gurus and may even be looked down on by the other 99% of America. But Brad Reifler believes it doesn’t have to be so and he says that even though many things about the movie Money Monster that are true, there are still amazing opportunities that can come from investing. Investors just need to heed some words of advice before they jump into investing.
Brad Reifler’s first word of advice is not to just simply invest in the stock market, but to look at other opportunities for funds. Yes, the stock market can have some very good investments that can bring high returns, but it could also be a very volatile place to invest in. Second, Reifler says it’s just as important to know who you’re investing with as it is to choose the type of investment. This is because you don’t want to invest with a company that has a bad reputation for making profits regardless of your portfolio performance. And lastly, Brad Reifler says you have to have an investment objective and stick to it and not get sidetracked by any bells and whistles that fund managers might offer you.
Reifler has built several companies that developed quite a reputation for investment strategies. The first was a discretionary account and global derivatives management company, Reifler Trading Company. Reifler owned this company from 1982 to 2000 before selling it to Refco Inc. He also built Pali Capital, a hedge fund and broker in the equities market that actually did not place control over where clients funds were invested in, but rather helped develop an investment strategy for the portfolio managers to execute. It did well in excess of $1 billion in income and built offices all over the world. And then Reifler started Forefront Capital, a company that started out as a portfolio manager to the wealthy clients, but soon moved towards middle class investors.
Brad Reifler wanted to serve middle class investors because once he had started a college savings investment fund that he had hoped would have enough in it for his daughters when the time came to withdraw. Unfortunately, the money was actually less than what Reifler had put into it. He also once tried to invest his father’s lifesavings in a good IRA account, but he couldn’t find a good one because his father was unaccredited. So after consulting with the SEC, Reifler was able to open an alternative investment fund at Forefront Capital for even non-accredited investors who could start investing in it for as little as $1,000.
