  • EP 89 Kevin Condon, CEO/Founder at PayByCar and Verdeva

    Kevin Condon is an experienced chief executive officer with a history of working in fintech, transportation policy, B-2-B media and public policy. Kevin is the inventor of PayByCar and Efficient Vehicle Assessor (EVA) platforms that change how consumers do business from their cars.

    PayByCar is an in-vehicle transaction company that makes in-vehicle payments easy, safe and fast. All it takes is a toll transponder and smartphone, but if you don’t have a transponder, you can use PayByCar’s non-toll tag. 

    I caught up with Kevin right as PayByCar is getting ready to tip into greater scale. Here are the highlights of our conversation:

    ·        The massive market of in-vehicle transactions.

    ·        The future opportunity-U.S. citizens spend $800 billion annually while in their cars. 

    ·        Developing and vetting the concept.

    ·        Building a two-sided marketplace.

    ·        Getting the word out: earned media and enrollment partnerships.

    ·        The social aspect of building a small ‘d’ democratic tech solution that the masses can attain.

Summers [summary] =>

    There is a global resonance, a societal energy behind the topic of diversity and inclusion. Yet it remains a challenge for people to get the diversity inclusion equation correct in the workplace. Frans Johnasson, Founder and CEO-The Medici Group is creating a great disruption to changing organizations, especially large-scale global companies meet the diversity challenge with his successful program called Renaissance. 

    Frans knows that diversity inclusion drives innovation. He is a breathing testament with his long-time work on the subject and is influenced with his own background of being raised in Sweden by a Swedish father and an American/Cherokee mother.

    Frans is also the author of two books–The Medici Effect and The Click Moment. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science from Brown University and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School. He is an international speaker and has been published in Harvard Business Press.

    Diversity inclusion is an urgent challenge in the world today, and so is the need to innovate, grow and adapt. I hope you will accept the challenge and learn from this very insightful conversation. We discuss:

    ·        Diversity looks differently depending on where you are in the world; however, working with teams from many countries doesn’t mean you’re inclusive.

    ·        How do you activate diversity?

    ·        How do you activate innovation?

    ·        How to make behavioral shifts in the workplace to scale ideas forward and generate positive business impact.

    ·        The necessity of building community and networking in the technology industry.

    ·        How the Renaissance program removes the pain points of change management.

Summers [summary] =>

    Thejo Kote was a co-founder of Automatic, which was sold to Sirius XM for $110 million. Although Thejo was a success, he experienced a lot of painful lessons about running a company and knew he wanted to do it better next time. The most inefficient area he saw was non-payroll spend and that no one had designed a fully articulated, consolidated software solution to fix this broken process. That gave Thejo the idea to start Airbase. 

    Today, Airbase is the leading spend management platform for small and midsize companies. It combines comprehensive accounts payable, an advanced corporate card program, and employee expense reimbursements into one system. Airbase automates accounting and operational workflows for a faster close, real-time reporting, and a consistent platform experience for all non-payroll spend. So far, the company has raised $30.8 million in venture funding.

    Highlights from our conversation include:

    ·        Team collaboration over nine countries and 100 individuals.

    ·        The reason behind having a free tiered version for smaller companies.

    ·        Favorite tools for working remotely, Slack, Notion and Asana.

    ·        Insights on venture funding.

    ·        Asking people in your network to open doors for your business.

    ·        The value of case studies to sell your brand.

Summers [summary] =>

    At the start of the pandemic, everyone started thinking of the best ways to clean and disinfect our environments. Those harsh chemicals and cleaning products aren’t healthy for the professional cleaners that use them, don’t reach all the places that need to be cleaned, or consider the effects on the environment.

    Using his background in mechanical engineering, Grant Morgan developed a portable and financially enticing product for disinfecting hospital areas. Within six months, Grant and his co-founder developed and booked over $5 million in sales, raised $15 million in capital and started a company, R-Zero. 

    The company’s lead product, Arc, is a Hospital-grade UV-C power device, proven to destroy surface and airborne pathogens in a thousand square foot room in just seven minutes. The UV-C disinfection unit can destroy over 99.99% of pathogens to make commercial space as safe as possible for employees and customers. It incorporates IOT connectivity and data science to automate workflows.

    R-Zero is a biosafety company with the mission of developing technologies and products to reduce deadly pathogens such as the Coronavirus, Influenza, norovirus, E. coli, common cold, and other common infectious diseases.

    And that’s just the start of Grant’s story. In this episode, Grant shares this rare pandemic success story including:

    ·        Innovation and speed to market comes from asking the right questions.

    ·        Making a product financially feasible to other businesses using a hardware as a service model – meaning equipment rental verses ownership.

    ·        Moving from a $1.6 million seed round of funding to $15 million in investors.

    ·        The benefits of data intelligence being incorporated within the product and accessing data in real time.

    ·        Future company growth beyond the Coronavirus pandemic.

    We’ve all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words and visuals are a key deciding factor in consumer purchase decisions.

    • How Vizit’s AI platform dramatically improves customer conversion including ecommerce, packaged goods, marketing messages, etc.
    • The history of building the platform and the team.

Summers [summary] =>

    The fourth industrial revolution is the RPA, which stands for Robotic Process Automation. Leading the revolution is Harel Tayeb, a serial entrepreneur with more than 15 years’ experience in the technology ecosystem, and CEO of Kryon, an enterprise automation software provider. Harel is leading Kryon’s aggressive growth strategy while building a world-class team of curious, innovative problem solvers. The company, based in Israel, has 10 offices worldwide and serves clients including HSBC, Allianz, AIG, Great Eastern in Asia-Pac, Wyndam Hotel and several Telcos.

    Prior to joining Kryon, Tayeb was an investor and advisor at Plus Ventures, a venture capital firm specializing tech startups. He has held several leadership positions at AVG (acquired by Avast for $1.3B) and Como (CondulT Mobile), a mobile app platform.

    The idea of RPA is to have virtual workers. These “workers” do the boring jobs so that employees can focus on more innovation, communication and creating things that are more impactful for the employer and organization.

    In our conversation, Harel shared:

    ·        The growth of RPA and its role in Covid-19 vaccinations in Israel.

    ·        Encouraging RPA development with low code or no code interfaces.

    ·        The opportunities of the “citizen developer.”

    ·        The future of RPA and the workplace environment.

    ·        Leadership insight as an accomplished entrepreneur and company builder.

    Harel also addressed the fears people may have when a new technology is introduced that might replace traditional workers. With his examples, people will easily see the advantages and new opportunities for RPA.

    For this episode we head to Singapore to speak with Yeoh Siew Hoon, a remarkable businesswoman, friend of young entrepreneurs, and the founder of Web in Travel (WiT). WiT launched in 2005 and was acquired by Northstar Travel Media in 2104. Siew Hoon continues to lead the platform, having extended editions across the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Europe.

    Siew Hoon started the company based on her interest on how technology was changing the way people book and plan their travel but over the years expanded the focus and the product lines while staying true to the company’s brand message - Our purpose is to take your mind to new places, so that together we can accelerate travel innovation.

    In our conversation, Siew Hoon shares her story of how she built her company and provides insights on the Asian entrepreneur community. We discuss:

    ·        Building a community around travel technology and trends.

    ·        Telling your company’s story and repurposing content across media platforms.

    ·        Supporting Asian entrepreneurs with the WiT Startup competition.

    ·        Supporting startups by matching investors, sharing expertise and building relationships.

    ·        Cultural aspects of entrepreneurs in Asia compared to places like the U.S.

    Siew Hoon believes everyone should express his or her creativity. She expresses hers by writing books, including Around Asia In One Hour: Tales of Condoms, Chilies & Curries, and her children’s books, Adventures of Habibie The Turtle, and The Story of Baitong and Boon.

    ·        Creating communities.

Summers [summary] =>

    We head to Vienna, Austria to meet Francisco Webber, founder of multiple companies, Natural Language Understanding (NLU) expert and inventor of Cortical.io’s proprietary Retina technology – a technology applies the principles of cerebral processing to machine learning and natural language understanding (NLU) to solve real-world use cases related to big text data.  

    In this episode, we discuss big data and the problems that need to be solved to sort through and interpret that data. Francisco provides insight into semantic folding processing and how Cortical.io (www.cortical.io) is pushing forward smarter machine automation. At Cortical.io solutions are based on the actual meaning of text, rather than on statistical occurrences. We also discuss how the business was built and how they have harnessed a multi-national team to collaborate and innovate.

    Francisco’s interest in information technology developed during his medical studies, when he was involved in medical data processing. Over the course of two decades, he explored search engine technologies and documentation systems in various contexts but became increasingly frustrated with the limitations of state-of-the-art statistical methods. In 2005 he founded Matrixware Information Services, which developed the first standardized global patent database. In 2007 he set up the Information Retrieval Facility with leading academic expert in information retrieval Professor Keith van Rijsbergen. Francisco recognized that the brain was the only existing reference system when it came to processing natural language. While closely following developments in neuroscience, he formulated his theory of Semantic Folding, which models how the brain represents language data.

    Cortical.io provides natural language understanding (NLU) solutions that enable large enterprises to automate the extraction, monitoring, and analysis of key information from any type of text data reducing the time and human effort it takes to complete business-critical data search and review processes. Coritcal.io has been implemented at multiple Fortune 100 businesses and featured in the Economist, Harvard Business Review, Bloomberg and Gartner.

    Cortical.io has offices in Europe (HQ in Vienna) and in the US (New York and San Francisco).

Summers [summary] =>

    For this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, we head to Texas to speak with Jeff Chastain, founder of Admentus and a professional Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS®) Implementer. We have a candid conversation with Jeff about his own career and the motivation to establish his own business. We then focus on the challenges faced by all business builders and approaches to ease stress as a business grows. We all know that it takes very different skills to start a business then to sustain one, and that if you don’t have the right advice, cracks can show up rather quickly.

    Complementing fifteen years in the technology space, Jeff founded Admentus to help entrepreneurs and business leaders embrace systems that can predict success. Jeff is a big believer in the EOS Model™ and mentors and trains founders and business creators on the Six Key Components™ that must be managed and strengthened to be a great business: vision, people, data, issues, process and traction. Of course, here at Disruptive CEO Nation, we also would add networks and coaching to that equation because business builders at every stage need to hear from those that have gone before them to help make their own path a little clearer.

    Sometimes we meet entrepreneurs who amaze us and Jonathan Ogurchak, the Co-founder and CEO of http://stackpharmacy.com/, is one of those people. Jonathan stepped away from a lucrative career as a pharmacist to build a platform that could transform the way #pharma business gets done, and he did so as a father of two children with one on the way and he literally started this great business in his garage (and here we must pause for quick salute to his wonderful wife).  

    In this episode, we hear the #startup story of Stack, a compliance management software designed to simplify the “outside of the dispense” complexities associated with running successful pharmacy organizations; however, the principles and functions of the STACK information ecosystem principles can translate to multiple industries. 

    Jonathan is also Managing Partner of Rhythm Group, a consulting and technology solutions organization, and is a Certified Consultant with Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC). Jonathan has designed programs and services for both Accredo and PANTHERx Specialty Pharmacy focusing on implementing innovative uses for technology, including high-touch pharmacist-driven programs focused on dosing efficiency, clinical monitoring of patient outcomes, and integrated patient engagement. He is on faculty for the Master of Pharmacy Business Administration (MPBA) program through the University of Pittsburgh, leading the Specialty Pharmacy Management curriculum. He currently serves on the editorial board for Specialty Pharmacy Times, holds CSP Certification through the Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board, and serves as an Educational Consultant for the National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP).

    Pedro Pico is both an inspiring businessman and gem of a woman. For this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, we head to Lisbon, Portugal and meet Pedro, whose motto is ‘My secret to get things done is getting started’.  

    Pedro is a creative adventurer who has built a business out of his love affair with food. He produced his own cooking show on YouTube which led to founding Tasty Studio, a company specializing in branded food and beverage media content. He has also hosted hundreds of home-cooked dinners for people from around the world all of which has led to his latest business venture: Drag Taste.  

    Featured by Airbnb as one of the top experiences in the world, Pedro developed Drag Taste with spouse Nikolay (a.k.a. Irina Ganache). They have an amazing team of the best drag queens from all over the world and, under a chandelier of red high heels, they host events such as "Drag-up Cooking Class", where they transform every guest in drag and host a Portuguese cooking class and event. Not to be side tracked by COVID, the team converted the event experiences to virtual and are now the top online Airbnb Experience with ‘Sangria and Secrets with Drag Queens’, where they actually dramatically increased their revenue beyond the ability of the restaurant. Next up? Opening Drag Taste locations worldwide. ​

    Sumaira K. Isaacs is a woman who knows the world and a woman the world should know. When we booked her, our intent to was to explore the close correlation between a country’s open borders and lively tourism to the opportunity for entrepreneurs to achieve business success, but we just happened to schedule this call amid the global COVID-19 pandemic and ended up with a rich conversation about what happens to business when borders close and events cancel.


    The movement of people is critical to success of business and unless business tourism returns, can there be a full economic recovery? Afterall, one in ten people in the world work in a role that is part of the hospitality and tourism industry. And with the potential for 75 million hospitality jobs to be lost worldwide and forecasts of half the global airlines closing down, what does the post-COVID-19 global scenario look like?


    Originally from Pakistan, with a long base of business in Dubai, and now residing in Canada, Sumaira is an International tourism industry veteran with over 25 years’ experience establishing companies, growing international brands, strategizing mergers and acquisitions, and serving as an expert consultant and advisor. She has worked with companies, tourist boards, associations (serving on several industry boards) and local governments in Africa, Middle East, India, Europe, and North America. Now through the platform of Global Tourism Forum (WoTF Brand) Sumaira is making a difference alleviating poverty and creating jobs by creating a tourism legacy in the developing countries.

    We invite you to spend time with Anna-Mieke Anderson, a B Corp founder and CEO of MiaDonna & Company and The Greener Diamond (www.miadonna.com). Named by Entreprenuer Magazine as one of their 100 Powerful Women in 2019, we thoroughly enjoyed discussing how the passions that inspire the birth of a business still require sound strategies to keep that mission alive.


    Based in Portland, OR, USA, Anna-Mieke is globally recognized as the pioneer of the lab-grown diamond (LGD) industry. After learning the conflict origin of her own earth-mined diamond in 2005, Anna-Mieke challenged the notion that gemstones, particularly diamonds, could only come from a place of unnecessary hardship. In 2007, she launched MiaDonna and pushed the quality of lab-grown diamonds to the highest levels. Today, ten percent of net profits are given to their non-profit foundation, The Greener Diamond, which helps free women and children oppressed by the active conflict diamond mining industry.


    Anna-Meike is a dedicated mother of 2, an avid philanthropist and successful entrepreneur, who is internationally recognized as a humanitarian and activist who works tirelessly to inspire other young women to follow their entrepreneurial spirit. Connect with Anna-Meike via LinkedIn

    Join us as we head to the UK to discuss socially conscious business with Farah Asemi, founder of ecofleet, a sustainable mindful B to C logistics service using carbon-neutral electric cargo bikes and vehicles. In this episode we transverse topics of product development, white label service, warehousing in a city like London and management of a unique workforce. Currently, ecofleet riders do 12,000 laps of the world every year. But what we love oh so much is the branding – it is worth checking out.

    We also cover the question of why enter the #greenbusiness space and Farah shares if the trigger moment when she knew there needed to be a call for change. When we caught up with Farah she was entering her first round of fundraising after starting the company with personal seed money and a government grant. We also cover the unique process to hire riders that will fulfill the mission in rain or shine – ok, this is London – so in rain or rain.

    Prior to ‘cycling into action’, Farah had a successful career within property development and real estate. She trained as an interior architect at the Mount Vernon School of Design in Washington DC. And then specialized in the renovation of London apartments. Farah’s desire to improve living conditions continued with her focus turning to our environment, a cause which Farah has been passionate about all her life.

    In this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, we speak with Dr. Maximilian ‘Max’ Pinker, founder and CEO of HiveNet.cloud. Max shares insights on his startup journey and the vision for HiveNet which is building an advanced distributed cloud computing network whose goal is to be a powerful future force in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency by allowing everyone with a computer to be able to rent out their idle machines and thus disrupt the billion dollar big cloud computing organizations.

    HiveNet is currently at its halfway mark on its roadmap to an anticipated public launch and Max excitedly shares insights into building the company, core development team and why they want to make a positive impact on the environment and society. Max firmly believes that as HiveNet increases the usage of available computers it can directly decrease the need for more new computers thus less electronic garbage will be created.

    Dr. Pinker is a scientist, polymath, and blockchain expert who is happy to make new connections and share the story of HiveNet.

    The phrase ‘purpose driven business’ can all too often be thrown around as a marketing strategy, however, Saddleback Leather was born out of purpose. It is a brand with a presence, a personality, good people and a passion for outstanding quality. 

    This episode of Disruptive CEO Nation enjoys a conversation with company founder Dave Munson. He tells of the unlikely journey of how an appreciation for a well-made bag led to years of figuring out how to make it work, selling products out of his truck, selling on eBay, and ultimately building a robust ecommerce platform. This episode also covers the challenges that can come when building a factory and production line in Mexico and operating an operations and sales team out of the US all while trying to maintain as much of a virtual workforce as possible. 

    Dave Munson leads with the belief that ‘competing on price is a race to the bottom’. Saddleback focuses on nothing less than top quality and products have a 100-year warranty – it’s why their tagline is whose tagline is,“They’ll fight over it when you’re dead”. But Dave is always quick to say, they are a people business cleverly disguised as leather bag business. Today, Saddleback is a wonderful success story where true brand fans, word of mouth marketing and some interesting videos allow Saddleback to support over 200 workers at their factory in Mexico (where daycare is free and a school has been started).

    Monica Weintraub – Down to Donate, Turning #Slacktivists into #Philanthropists

    Monica Weintraub wants to teach people to do good the easy way. As the founder and CEO of Down to Donate, Monica has delivered into the nonprofit space a charity subscription service whose goal is to redefine what it means to donate and stand up for causes. Her long-term vision is to create the world’s most extensive network of philanthropists, while helping each of Down to Donate’s vetted nonprofit partner organizations receive monthly gifts from the community.

    In this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, Monica will share the story of her seven years in China where she founded her first company at the age of 23 in the ESL industry. Monica reflects on some of the challenges in the nonprofit space and how Down to Donate seeks to engage the slacktivist generation in a model that they are comfortable with while simultaneously educating donors about the world’s pressing issues through a crowdfunding-meets-subscription based platform. She believes that micro-donations and the set-it-and-forget-it method can lead to big impact.

    Martin is a pure-bred engineer. He has had the interest from a very early age. All the preferred toys let him tinker with something. The only logical step was to study engineering at university. After his second year, he started working as a mechanical engineer for Estanc, a company specialised in pressure vessels.

    After that, he went on to work at Nordic Gas Solutions. There he continued with pressure vessels and constructions as a mechanical engineer but also climber the industry ladder by taking care of production management and client/supplier communications.

    It was there when it became very clear for Martin that some things are quite skewed in the industry. The ordering process was very clumsy and time-consuming. This planted the first seeds for making a change in the industry. After sharing some early thoughts with friends a family, the overall outline of Fractory started hatching.

    From there, a team of 3 co-founders was established, some startup competitions won and the journey got started.

    Bio:

    Ryan Preisner is the co-founder and CEO of boldSOCKS. In his current role, Ryan oversees all of the backend business processes and operations needed to run and grow the company.

    After graduating college, Ryan found a job in a corporate environment working for a large food service distributor as a Marketing Analyst. He found his interests and skills leading him towards opportunities to build efficiencies in business through systems and data. This prompted Ryan to go back to college to continue studies in Computer Information Systems. Ryan was promoted to become the Product Data Supervisor and was able to use his skills to help the organization solve complex data challenges. This included building systems used to create new product data for over 35,000 items by large teams requiring coordinated approvals and hand-offs. Although Ryan found success in his role, he lacked contentment and began dreaming of entrepreneurial ideas.

    Using the skills obtained on the job and in school, Ryan began experimenting with starting his own venture on the side. This included buying and selling snowboards on eBay, buying pallets of returned electronics, building a snowboarding app, and eventually boldSOCKS.com. boldSOCKS was born out of Ryan’s desire to have fun with his work apparel and identifying an opportunity for a sock retailer to carry the best brands and patterns of socks. From the beginning, Ryan had a desire to use boldSOCKS for good and have a mission beyond simply selling socks. This originally started with what they called Bold Contributions, but has evolved into strategically supporting clean water initiatives with the Statement Sockwear brand, ensuring ethical production of their products, and developing a company culture that cares for all it impacts.

    Ryan was born, raised and still resides in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area with his wife Sarah. They have three children (Breckin, Greydin, and Emberlynn). In his free time, Ryan enjoys playing hockey, hiking, helping his wife in their garden, and spending weekly one-on-one time with their kids.

    Ryan Roff

    Ryan Roff is a social entrepreneur with a passion for using business to create measurable change and social justice. He is an owner of boldSOCKS in Grand Rapids, MI and the co-founder of Statement Sockwear (a sock brand with a social enterprise model). Ryan represents the creative and marketing side of boldSOCKS. He currently oversees the strategic and creative development of the brands under the boldENDEAVORS umbrella (boldSOCKS.com, boldSOCKS, boldSOCKS Retail and Statement Sockwear) and casts the long-term vision for the company.

    Before boldSOCKS, Ryan worked as a the packaging coordinator at a major foodservice distributor where he was able to blend strategic brand decisions, art direction, and project management while coordinating the creative development of over 1,000 pieces of packaging artwork and the redesign of four private brands.

    He then moved to a mid-sized agency where he managed the strategic development and implementation of integrated marketing campaigns across various channels and tactics that included apps, web, print, trade shows, social media and videos.

    Ryan now lives on the Northside of Grand Rapids with his wife Brooke and one-year son. Together, they enjoy biking, hiking, camping, climbing, cookouts and being outside. While on the Northside, Ryan and his wife enjoy connecting neighbors through social gatherings and recently developed the Northside Happy Hour—a group of more than 30 people that get together from the neighborhood to enjoy a cocktail every month.

    Or grew up in a humble Israeli family. His mother was an elementary school science teacher, and his father a travel agent. At the age of 21, Or found himself at a crossroads, either pursue a degree or find a job. He knew that attending college would be a financial strain on his family and felt that the employment opportunities available to him were disappointing, so he took a leap of faith and decided to move to NY to follow his dream of becoming a real estate mogul.

    Or began his career working for a small boutique rental agency. His job was to lease apartments to young professionals and students. Being a quick learner, it took him merely a year of working in the field to confidently start his own business. He began leveraging residential properties and offering them as alternative accommodations for tourists. This way lodgers could avoid steep hotel bills and save money when they travel. While business was booming, and his company was growing fast, Or, still eager to learn more about real estate, took the next logical step in his career and joined GFI, a commercial real estate brokerage.

    Not long after joining GFI, he had an idea he believed would fundamentally change the way people live. In his own life, he had moved between 7 apartments in just 6 years and describes the experience as needlessly stressful and expensive. Or's vision was to provide end-users with turn-key apartments, and to constantly improve the user experience by integrating user information. This way, renters would save both money and time while enjoying a more flexible, user-friendly, living environment.

    Or believed so strongly in the success of this venture, that in April 2017 he decided to invest all his life savings into it. He worked on improving the concept for almost 6 months before embarking on his first Friends & Family investment round. Following his best friend's advice, he named the company Roomrs.

    Today, Roomrs is a well-known real estate co-living operator which manages more than 400 rooms across 40 buildings. The team quickly grew from 3 people into a 25 people operation. Recently, it secured a seed round of 2.5M.

    Kurt Phelps, CEO of GNR, one of the nation's most successful high tech recruiting firms, has over 20 years experience working with executives to build some of the most powerful corporate teams in the industry. Over the last 2 decades, Kurt found that executives rarely put the same time and effort into networking, developing their digital presence, and establishing their own personal brand as they did for the companies they work for. To solve this problem, Kurt created Phello, the world's first SaaS platform, which allows professionals to organize their years of contacts, communicate with their network on a regular basis, and develop their personal brand and digital presence—laying the groundwork to be top of mind when new opportunities arise.

    One of the co-founders of Eat Your Coffee – creators of the original, naturally caffeinated snack bar. Founded as coffee-deprived college students rushing to our 8am classes, we were looking for a better way to stay energized throughout the day. We joked about eating our coffee, started developing some recipes in our dorm, and sold them in the library for a semester. About three years later now, we've officially graduated from Northeastern University, sold our bars into over 600 retail stores and 700 offices around the country, raised nearly $3M, and sold over 1 million bars and counting. It would be great to learn more about the book you're working on and if there's a fit for our story

    Davis holds a bachelor’s degree in International Marketing, a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Huntington University and a credential in Executive Coaching. She holds a certificate from the National Institution of Health in Protecting Human Research and was named to The Wall Street Journal’s Women of Note database as an innovative woman who shares her expertise and inspiration. In 2015, she was featured by American Express’s Thinking Outside the Box Forum.

    But it isn’t just her education and credentials that qualify her to do what she does for others. Davis is a self-starter and has always been her own boss. At 18 she became a licensed realtor for the state of New York and sold real estate for 3 years. She later became a contractor for Mazda USA and traveled the country for six years as an automotive product specialist and speaker. Simultaneously, her entrepreneurial spirit led her to create Hoo-Kong in 2013, a jewelry line designed to empower its buyers to be the unique, world-changing individuals that they were born to be. While designing jewelry and managing her small business, Davis sought to fill a void in the fulfillment of her passions and launched the Never, Never Give Up campaign as a social responsibility endeavor under the HK umbrella. The campaign quickly gained traction and eventually overtook the jewelry line as the centerpiece of Davis’s business. Hoo-Kong organically evolved into the digital media platform it is today.

    Hoo-Kong now provides tools, resources, and services to help individuals help themselves; discover, learn and grow. This fall Hoo-Kong will be expanding to offer Online Leadership Consultations anytime, anyplace, from any device. By developing this online tool and app it’s aim is to provide confidential support to executives, entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders so that may effectively perform within their organizations.

    Fueled by the desire to instill confidence in others, especially women and girls, Davis spends her spare time volunteering and donating her energy and resources to different causes. In 2015 she sponsored the suicide prevention stage play To Die Alone. She has also led pro-bono workshops on personal and professional development for disadvantaged youth in New York City and volunteers as an English conversation tutor at AAFSC, empowering women through literacy and language development. Davis believes education is a powerful tool and volunteers with GED preparation at Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow where she assists adults in acquiring the academic skills necessary to lift themselves out of poverty and create a better life for themselves and their families.

    Davis makes a concerted effort for her team to discover and share free business and tech courses to bridge gaps between readers and opportunities for growth.

    When asked her favorite quote Davis sites Itochu, “I am one with infinite missions, my workplace is the entire world.”

    Founder & CEO Gnatta

    Founder & Chairman FM Outsource

    Founded his first company in 2012, now runs two successful, profitable businesses with a combined turnover of £5m. Both have been built entirely self-financed, taking on no debt or external investment.

    He founded his first business due to the belief that the way customers and organizations communicate was broken – this has turned into a passion of his and he now runs a successful digital outsourcing firm and a successful technology business producing superior call center technology.

    Jack is a thought leader, regularly sharing his views on customer communication, and the customer service industry in general.

    A large part of Jack’s success so far has come from his focus on hiring the right talent (especially developers, initially a challenge for someone with no coding background) and creating the right culture for each business: one a 400 strong outsource operation and one a 30-strong tech team. His success in doing so has taken both companies to where they are today and his honest, engaging style has played a massive part in this.

    Success By Design: Designer Water “Embodies Alkaline Water Benefits”, Experts Say

    CENTURION, SOUTH AFRICA, May 7th, 2018 – While high PH alkaline water has long been regarded as a “miracle of nature” by those well-versed in holistic medicine, it’s been only recently that it’s become the subject of extensive scientific research. One prime example that is packed with “vitamins, bio-available minerals, antioxidants, and incredible healing properties” is Designer Water, the high alkaline pH bottled water produced using the best available filtering methods in Centurion, South Africa.

    “Water is the essence of life – but I dare say that this phrase should be more specific. High pH alkaline water is what provides the full spectrum of water’s life-enhancing qualities. Our micro-clustering technology ensures that each and every bottle we produce contains the highest quality high pH alkaline water, meaning its nutritional profile and amazing properties remain intact” said Mr. John Thompson, Founder and Managing Director, Designer Water.

    High pH alkaline water benefits have not gone unnoticed by celebrities, either. Mark Wahlberg, Hollywood’s highest paid actor, sat down with Mr. Thompson in December 2017 to discuss how alkaline water changed his life, and how he decided to make selling it one of his many business ventures.

    However, Mr. Thompson was quick to note that high pH alkaline water’s popularity has transcended the realm of exclusivity, seeing as people of all walks of life have come to embrace it as an inextricable part of their lifestyle.

    “We’ve received emails and video testimonials from people from all around the world who rave about the transformative ways with which high pH alkaline water has improved their health and overall well being. Whether they were looking to increase their mental clarity and focus or address the symptoms of various health conditions impacting their quality of life, our customers have stated, time and again, that they will be consuming Designer Water for life.”

    In addition to bottled high pH alkaline water, Designer Water further offers alkaline water products, alkaline water machines and water ionizers through its e-Shop.

    Those wishing to find out more about Designer Water products and its franchise opportunities can do so by visiting the company’s website or by calling 087-550-1231.
