Squaw Valley Ski Corporation/Andy Wirth

Squaw Valley Resort Passes a Big Hurdle; CEO Andy Wirth Pleased With Expansion Talks

Posted by ACioe1 on

The Placer County Planning Commission has just given Squaw Valley Resort the green light to proceed with their expansion plans. Although this was a big moment for Squaw Valley’s team, they cannot proceed with their expansion projects until they get approval from the County Board of Supervisors in the fall.

Squaw Valley CEO Andy Wirth said that the most important takeaway from the meeting was a frank discussion about traffic issues in the Tahoe region. The increased traffic has been the major concern for many expansion proposals in the greater Tahoe area in recent years.

Andy Wirth hopes to solve the traffic woes with innovative plans for an advanced mass transit system. While he does not have a specific plan yet, Wirth hopes to have a cost-effective transportation strategy for north Tahoe on paper either this or next autumn.

According to CBS, Andy Wirth has been the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Corporation since 2010. In addition to his CEO role, Wirth serves on the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority board. He has always had an enthusiasm for mountaineering and the great outdoors. His first official job after college was working for the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation in 1986, a company he continued to work with till 2010. He also worked as a ranger in the San Pedro Parks Wilderness Area. Read more: Andy Wirth | Powder Magazine

Many people have probably heard about Wirth due to his skydiving accident in Lodi, CA. After jumping out of a plane in 2013, Wirth realized that the plane flew too far from the sanctioned drop zone. When a crosswind blew him to the right, he grabbed a pole on his right.

Unfortunately, this pole ripped his right arm off. As he fell further down, Wirth’s canopy got caught in wires and branches. Wirth knew he had to stave off the bleeding, so he stuck his left fist into his right armpit. Luckily, another skydiver found him within a few minutes, and Wirth was able to instruct her on how to help him. A helicopter eventually picked him up, and Wirth made a full recovery after over 20 surgeries in a hospital.

Andy Wirth is nothing if not determined both in his personal life and in his professional work. His greatest concern right now is figuring out a way to reduce the traffic in the Tahoe area. He hopes that his upcoming plan will help visitors have an exceptional experience visiting the world-class ski resorts around the Lake Tahoe area.

Flavio Maluf Taking Stock Of Brexit’s Effect On The Brazilian Economy

Posted by ACioe1 on

Not long ago when the most shocking event happened in Europe, the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the fallout is still being measured internationally, including in countries like Brazil. The immediate effects of the UK’s leaving the EU include the pound currency being devalued, and in the future, a drop in foreign investment and free trade with the UK is expected to have a big impact, according to Flavio Maluf, a Brazilian economist and financial advisor. On a more positive note for the Brexit, Maluf does believe that there will be some trade benefits for Brazil, as the EU no longer regulates the commerce standards between the UK and Brazil. However, the 2 countries are not major trading partners, and the trade benefits may be relatively small compared to the negative effects.

Flavio Maluf’s Background

Maluf is the owner of Eucatex, a major Brazilian enterprise. He got his degree in business administration from New York University’s business school, and stepped into the Eucatex board of directors in 1987, where he oversaw the trade and exporting department. In 1996, Maluf became a company executive and helped lead Eucatex to expand its global reaches. The company manufactures its tiles and furniture products from Eucalyptus, an indigenous plant to Brazil and an environmentally friendly material, hence why his company is named Eucatex.

In 2010, Bloomberg tells us that Maluf helped Eucatex open up a new manufacturing plant in Sao Paulo and other operations that have helped Eucatex grow its production capabilities and find new markets. Maluf has wisely managed the company budget and has helped Eucatex churn a profit, with the latest figures at 10 million valued in Brazilian Real. In addition to serving at Eucatex, Maluf has also served at several international financial firms including Sistema S.A. Corretora de Títulos e Valores Mobiliários, and Citibank. As head of a company that’s thickly involved in foreign trade, he’s known as a trusted voice in Brazil when it comes to economic forecasts. But Maluf is also involved in local charities on the side, including the Idio Carli Hospital and Maternity Ward.

Online Reputation Is a Priority to Any Business

Posted by ACioe1 on

Online reputation should be a priority for any business. Many companies ignore the importance of online reputation until they become victims of a bad online reputation that threatens their business.
To avoid situations that may be costly to your firm, it is crucial that you know how to manage your online reputation to keep your business services running smoothly.
To keep your online reputation, Business 2 Community recommends a few practical steps.

1. Claim Your online profile
It is recommended that you claim your business’ online profiles on review sites such as Google or Facebook. Ensure that the email associated with the reports is regularly tracked so that customer reviews are addressed on a timely basis. Ensure that your business profile stays up to date with descriptions, contact information, and links to your website.

2. Activate social media accounts
Besides reviews, your company should have active social media accounts. Address the comments posted on your account and post all relevant information on the enterprise. Avoid fighting negative comments since they have the power to destroy your company’s reputation.

3. Respond professionally to online reviews and social media comments
Use a professional tactical response when addressing all comments and reviews. You should consider online reputation as a customer service extension. Therefore, it is critical that you show commitment while addressing the reports and observations. Ensure that your responses meet the issues of each client in the best way possible.

4. Do not fight back in case of negative review
If you someone leaves a negative review about your company, consider them as your weaknesses and work out to fix them instead of fighting back. Negative comments are a good source of business ideas.
For instance, they might point out market gaps that your company is not serving, which helps you improve your service delivery. Additionally, they provide a platform to show how you can handle your customers. Bad reviews are a customer’s honest way of informing you about your business and its brands.

5. Ask your customers to review your business
You should ask your customers to give comments about your business online. Clients will always give positive reviews when satisfied with the services received. Address them with expertise to avoid dissatisfaction which invites online defamation.


Wisdom of Kabbalah/Spirituality

Kabbalah and the Kabbalah Centre

Posted by ACioe1 on

Kabbalah is something that many people have heard about. But while the word itself is well known, there is not a lot about it that is known by the general public. Learning about what Kabbalah is and familiarizing yourself with the Kabbalah Centre can introduce a whole new world into your life that you were not realizing was important to have.
Kabbalah is based in the Judaism religion. What it is can differ depending upon who is discussing it, but Kabbalah is basically a set of teachings that are meant to explain the relationship that exists between Ein Sof or infinity and the universe or God’s creation. While it is much more complicated than this, this definition is the very basic breakdown of what Kabbalah is.
Kabbalah was originally taught to those over the age of 40. This was the age that it was thought that this was the age of wisdom. That is part of the reason that the Kabbalah Centre was so different from the original teachings. This centre is based out of California and they offer courses on both Kabbalah and Zohar. Some of these courses are offered online while others are offered at various locations throughout the world.
The Kabbalah Centre has locations in North and South America as well as in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The vast number of locations makes it easy for people around the world to study with the Kabbalah Centre. And studying with the Kabbalah Centre is made easier by the fact that you do not need to have a lot of experience with Judaism and its teachings to begin studying.
Kabbalah is complicated to understand but learning through the Kabbalah Centre is a great way to begin the process of learning what Kabbalah is all about. There are enough locations as well as online courses that it does not matter where you are when you decide to start.
