Power Properties

With my husband is in the construction and remodeling industry I found Brandon Power and his company Power Properties fascinating. Mr. Powers acquired over 600 units in the Lakewood and old east side Dallas neighborhoods. He then renovated, leased, maintains and manages these units.

Taking a home and renovating it and restoring a neighborhood is such a great idea. Power Properties started doing this 13 years ago and continue to have a successful company. Their philosophy is, create a living space that makes you feel good. They do this by adding architectural appealing features like hardwood flooring, high ceilings and quality fixtures.

If you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area you should check out Power Properties condos. I don't beleive you will be disappointed.

My husband and I own a construction/remodeling company, so I tend to keep an eye on the construction industry. I found K-Designers to be an interesting company.

K-Designers is nationally known and has locations in Washington, California, Oregon, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Colorado, Nebraska and Minnesota.

K-Designers was started by Larry and Lee Judson in 1978. They started with only four employees and now have over 900 employees. They believe their success has been and will continue to be because they give their customers the best value for their money. K-Designers has received numerous awards for recognition in the field of home improvement.

I personally do not agree with having surgery that is not necessary. Although I found Dr. Joel Roskind an interesting physician. He is a plastic surgeon and teacher with moral ethics. He has worked for American Association of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) as Facility Inspector. He is also advocate for patient safety. Dr. Joel Roskind currently consults with other physicians and surgeons helping them prepare their ambulatory surgical facilities for inspection.

His primary interests lie in enhancing the facial and body image, breast surgery, liposculpture and laser surgery.

Linus Gitahi

Another intriguing individual I came across on the internet is Linus Gitahi. He is the CEO of Nation Media Group the largest media firm in East and Central Africa. The company remains true to its stated mission to be independent, subject neither to factional, commercial, religious or political interest. He also serves as non-executive of Equity Bank, ltd Afrika Investment Bank and Federation of Kenya Employers.

Although being the CEO keeps Linus Gitahi busy he still finds time to be involved with the sport he loves, running. Linus Gitahi finds time to blog about runners. He explains that runners do not train alone, he explains that running in a group gives you more discipline. Linus Gitahi is an example of an individual that knows how to balance his work and his personal interest.

American Tax Relief

It is that time of year when most Americans stress over their taxes. I came across American Tax Relief, they specialize in helping people with their delinquent taxes. Most people don't know there is help out there when it comes to delinquent taxes.

American Tax Relief can help you settle tax debt for a fraction of the debt.They can help stop wage garnishment, bank levy, tax levy and property seizures too. If you have unbearable monthly payments they can help. They can also help with state and business payroll tax. I have recommended American Tax Relief to several of my friends. We do not need to fear April 15th or the IRS, there is always a solution to every difficulty.

Mohammed Babangida

While scanning the internet I came across a fascinating individual. Mohammed Babangida, he is a very versatile and interesting person. He is a successful business man in the last 15 years he has worked in the oil and gas industry, banking, real estate and security service industry. He also sits on the board of several banking commitees.

If that isn't enough to keep him busy, Mohammed Babangida is also an avid polo player. He plays with the Kaduna Polo Club. Mr Babangida works hard and plays hard. Mohammed Babangida also knows how to relax. He does this by listening to jazz, rhythm amd blues and traditional African music. Mr Babangida is a husband and father and lives in Nigeria State, Nigeria. Although, he is known throughout the business world and Polo community.

Amos Tamam

I always enjoy reading about people who have a successful career that they worked hard on building it from the ground up. Amos Tamam is an individual that has done just that. Mr Tamam trained as an electrical engineer at Tel Aviv University in Israel, when he came to the United States he began servicing taxis at a fleet garage in New York City. Now he is the CEO of Verifone Transportation Systems, Inc.

That is a success story! How did he do it you ask? Amos Tamam possesed great technical ingenuity and a creativity to develope the processes and products to solve problems for fleet owners. Ultimately, the greatest invention was to provide the fleet owners the ability to process credit cards using wireless technology.

This was a bonus for the taxi companies and the people using taxis. It provides a reciept for the passenger and the convienance of not worrying about cash. The benefit for the company is a record of passengers and if a passenger leaves something in the taxi, it can be returned. That is a bonus for both the company and the passenger. Thanks to Amos Tamam and his ingenuity.

United American Insurance Company

While searching the internet for affordable insurance I came across a company United American Insurance Company. I was impressed that they were listed in the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) top 5 insurance companies. My interest in United American Insurance Company was sparked so I continued to find out more information on this company.

United American offers a wide variety of coverage for people under the age of 65. They are also premiere providers in Medicare Supplement coverage. Their rates are competitive and worth checking out.

I also noticed that United American Insurance Company has several career opportunities. Their headquarters are located in McKinney, Texas. The company offers web-based, classroom and on the job training. The also provide incentive travel to exciting destinations. With the economy struggling, this is defiantly a good opportunity.

Driving and Cell Phones

While searching for a topic to blog on today, my oldest son came up with this topic. Occasionally, I have to go up into the city/suburbs to go shopping or visit my sister. It amazes me while driving in the city how many times I look over at another car passing me and see a person talking on their cell phone. These are usually the people that pull out in front of you, causing you to brake to avoid hitting them. We actually counted our close encounters one afternoon. Four near misses just driving to my sisters house. That's right, FOUR in one short trip.

Some cities have laws that police can ticket you for using the cell phone and driving. Just like the speed limits and laws pertaining to wearing seat belts are created to provide safer road travel. People that are not paying attention to to road and other drivers are just as dangerous for the other people on the road as drunk drivers. When you are driving a vehicle you have a 6000 lb (approx) weapon and need to be paying attention to what you are doing. Do you remember taking the driver education classes when you were a teen? One of the main things they taught was to focus on the road and pay attention to what other drivers are doing as well. Dialing a phone or texting takes your eye off the road. Most phones now have a feature that has voice activated dialing and are blue tooth adaptable or have a speaker feature. These features were created for safe application while driving.

I must be fair and say I talk on the cell phone while driving too. I use the speaker phone and have someone in the car dial the number or dial the number while at a stop sign. Let's get real though, 20 years ago cell phones were a rarity. People got along just fine without them. In our fast paced world we have taken a product and abused it's use. I think if we all did some self reflecting we would see that the phone calls we are making and the texting, could wait until we were not driving. We have become self absorbed and possibly put other lives in danger while we chit chat.

Next time you start to dial or text while driving down the road, you may want to rethink the importance of that phone call. If someone calls you or text you while driving, you can always return the message later. The chance of you injuring someone else or your self is not worth it. Instead of saying "hind sight is 20/20", let's say "foresight is better".
