Betsy Devos: Education Reformer and Philanthropist

Have you seen Betsy Devos in the news lately? The new US Education Secretary has only a little under two years left to complete the education reform that she set out to do in her appointment in 2016. It’s been slow going as many states are not eager to implement educational choice, although states that have been implementing the programs have been praised by Devos for their hard work and dedication to student education.


That’s what Devos says that it’s all about. She also has said recently that she doesn’t believe people really understand what private choice or educational choice is, although they are critical. She believes that these choices are helping students, instead of the administration, which some don’t like. She voiced her opinions on a recent episode of “60 Minutes” with Leslie Stahl.


The US Education Secretary also shared how philanthropy has helped her education reform goals. She has been backed by Mark Zuckerberg, Sam Walton, and Bill Gates. These donors have provided more funding to help with educational choice programs, such as tuition needs for private schools. This is where Devos has begun to shine, as she shows that public funding isn’t going towards private education. However, philanthropists can help with more programs to fund students interests in charter schools and private schools.


She believes that the best examples of the new programs can be found in Florida and Louisiana. However, she states that Florida is the one with better programs. Students can currently choose between magnet programs, private schools, homeschooling, virtual schools, and charter schools. Florida also has a tuition-based scholarship program that provides funding for students to get a private education.


Devos has said that those who are against educational reform like this are stuck within the public school mentality, where schools are failing. She says that this is all about helping students and parents choose the right school and curriculum for kids. Without these choices, parents are stuck with failing schools simply because of the district where they live. That’s not the right way to do education, according to Devos.


While people are still against educational choice, Devos has had other battles added to her plate, including the US school safety reform initiative, which has begun launching ahead of the 2018-2019 school year.

Lessons on financial fitness from Graeme Holm of Infinity Group Australia

Graeme Holm and his partner Rebecca Walker are the founders of the Infinity Group Australia. After working with different banks in the country, they realized that banks were in business to make profits without caring whether their customers were benefiting or not. They took six months developing a business plan that would address the financial needs of the people. Their key focus was the Australian mortgage market where people struggle a lot with loans repayment.




Australians were suffering from lack of guidance on how to manage their finances. Graeme Holm wanted to offer solutions that would guide everyone on how to manage their finances better. He wanted to change the scenario whereby banks were offering very poor deals to their customers.




There is no guidance from the banks on how the borrower could utilize the funds well, yet they expected him or her to repay the money on time failure, to which one is slapped with extra charges. Holm believes that banks want to see their customers struggle with repayment so that they can earn more from interest rates and penalties.




What solution did Graeme Holm come up with? He brought a different approach to the management of finances which involves borrowers working with personal bankers. From his experience of 17 years in the banking sector, he is conversant with all matters finances, and he is best suited to help Australians with debt reduction.




Infinity Group Australia offers a variety of services in property investment, debt reduction, and retirement strategies. Once you start working with Infinity Group Australia, they will not leave until you have repaid the debt in full.




Clients who have worked with the company so far attest to saving in three months what they did in 12 months previously. An average of $41,000 is the amount most of their clients are saving in 0ne year. With such amounts, it becomes straightforward to clear a loan in a short time.




Infinity Group Australia conducts research that goes into the daily household spending of the clients. Most families tend to waste their resources on household expenses unknowingly. The personal banker will help the client develop a weekly budget that will cater for expenses such as travel, entertainment, gas, and foodstuffs.




The company discourages clients from using their credit cards. Graeme Holm believes that if you cannot afford to buy it cash, you do not need it. Credit cards are the worst enemy in financial management.




The bottom line




By working with Infinity Group Australia, one will be able to cut on cost while at the same time maintaining a comfortable life. This company will help you live off debts by facilitating quick repayments.

Direct Sales the Right Choice for Bernardo Chua, ORGANO

Direct selling is driving business strategy taken by award-winning ORGANO creator Bernardo Chua. It’s worked well enough to earn the company he founded in 2008 the #55 spot on the list of the largest network marketing companies in the globe. The distinction was awarded by Direct Selling News in 2014 after the Vancouver-based ORGANO, then called Organo Gold, increased its sales by 26 percent in a year.

This distinction recognizes the efforts of Bernardo Chua and his ever-increasing staff to expand the brand. In terms of direct sales, ORGANO has more than a million distributors worldwide. That number is on the increase as the company looks to expand its reach to more than 35 countries. Toward that end the company has joined the ranks of the Direct Sellers Association of Canada, which aims to promote a high standard of consumer protections among other directives. Visit for more details.

Direct selling is a method of making products available for purchase in a non-retail setting. ORGANO uses the principles illustrated by Napoleon Hill in his 1937 best-selling book “Think and Grow Rich,” according to officials at the company. Hill espouses “the mastermind principle and process” and understanding where one “wants to go” with a business plan among other philosophic ideas aimed at the end point of growing wealth.

Other marketing strategies introduced by Bernardo Chua include adding more celebrity endorsements to promote ORGANO products. Such initiatives have led to the creation of the million-plus army of individual distributors. Also, the company updated its online retail location called ShopOG.
