Dr. Avi Weisfogel Takes Sleep Apnea Treatment to a Higher Level with Dentistry

Who knew that dentistry may hold the solution for a common problem that plagues many of its sufferers? Dr. Avi Weisfogel has known for 20 years the important role that dentistry can play in helping patients overcome sleep apnea. He has been at the apex of those using specialized dental devices to treat the condition. He is an expert in the scientific literature that details the facts about sleep disorders and the latest treatments.

Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep that causes a marked decline in sleep quality and its rejuvenating effects on health. These pauses can be as brief as a few seconds or could last a full minute or longer. Often, a snort or choking sound is heard when breathing resumes and it can also affect the sleep quality of a partner.
One’s health and appearance can be noticeably affected when quality sleep is curtailed or overlooked. Facial appearance can be particularly impacted by sleep deprivation. Saggy eyelids and puffiness are dead giveaways that the amount of sleep isn’t adequate and these may be just the tip of the iceberg. Wrinkles may appear prematurely and be more pronounced which leads to one looking a decade older instead of possibly ten years younger. Seven to nine hours of sleep per night is recommended for most people and can have a noticeable effect on appearance and outlook.
Inadequate sleep can be a byproduct of busy lifestyles. The cumulative demands of career, family, and other pursuits can make a lack of sleep a distinct possibility for many. Many people jokingly say that they’ll get adequate sleep when they are dead, however, the potential ill effects of sleep deprivation are no laughing matter.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been the catalyst for helping many dentists realize the positive impact that they can have with patients suffering from sleep apnea. His organization, Dental Sleep Masters, is an excellent way for dentists to learn more about this new area of dentistry. This allows patients who need it to get innovative treatment options and helps dentists build their practices by offering additional services.

Jose AuriemoNeto launches JHSF to towering heights

JHSF Participacaoes is one of the oldest and most well-known real estate developers in the country of Brazil. Founded in 1972 by Fabio Auriemo, the company has grown into one of the largest constructors of luxury real estate in the country. It also operates an enormous portfolio of luxury properties, including hotels, shopping centers and luxury condominium buildings. The company has been instrumental in the development of Brazil, bringing many of Brazil’s largest cities up to the level of their first-world counterparts.

Today, JHSF Participacaoes is run by the son of Fabio Auriemo, Jose AuriemoNeto. In his tenure as CEO, lasting more than 15 years, AuriemoNeto has led the company through a period of phenomenal growth. While the company had a large international presence, even when AuriemoNeto took over at the helm, today, it is inarguably the largest luxury real estate contractor and all of South America, with large holdings in Uruguay, Salvador, Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro and even Miami.

Throughout his reign at the top of JHSF Participacaoes, AuriemoNeto has become known for taking on huge and ambitious projects. One example of such a project is the ParqueCidadeJardim development, located astride one of the most heavily trafficked arteries in the city of Sao Paulo. The project came about when AuriemoNeto noticed a large tract of vacant land next to a major highway. He envisioned the perfect location, complimented by easy entrance and egress from the highway and other nearby streets, for a sprawling, mixed-use luxury development.

Eventually, the development would entail nine residential towers, four Class A office towers and a 180-store shopping center that is home to some of the world’s most renowned brands, including Luis Vuitton, Reebok Academy and a Cinemark mega-theater. The complex has been a runaway success, with nearly 100 percent occupancy since the day of its opening. The project has proven that Brazilian cities have the market for world-class, luxury real estate and are capable of competing with some of the most in-demand cities across the globe, including London, New York and Dubai.

Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. is the Company of Choice

It is very difficult to be accidentally successful, but if a company has a plan and works at it that is the formula for ongoing growth and success. Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. started as a small regional title and document company, and today is one of the largest and fastest growing companies in its industry.

 

Eight of the top ten retail lending and mortgage companies rely on Nationwide for their source of closing documents such as title release, lien release, abstracts, and all of the other necessary documents and forms.

 

Nationwide can reach out to all of the jurisdictions, counties, and storage facilities that hold these documents. That amounts to some 3,600 separate entities all across the country that have to be available at all times. Nationwide has invested in the personnel and the technology to make all of this happen.

 

There are closing meetings that occur every hour of every day where people are purchasing houses and other properties and relying on the proper delivery of closing documents. If those documents are inaccurate or they don’t arrive on time, the closing has to be postponed, and some buyers may choose to do business elsewhere.

 

The importance of accuracy and timely delivery cannot be overstated. Nationwide has a compliance rate of 99.89% and a failure rate of only .78%, which points out that Nationwide delivers documents on time and accurately nearly 100% of the time.

 

Danny Byrnes, Vice President of Sales at Nationwide puts everything in perspective when he talks about the past 25 years when Nationwide has put all of its programs together. The company has made a concerted effort to hire the right people to oversee the process, and they are the best in the business. The company has also made the investment in technology that is necessary to carry the load.

 

There are best practices placed at each level of performance to see to it that the shortest path to perfection is applied. Byrnes goes on to say that just about everybody has audited Nationwide’s systems from clients, tax jurisdictions, consultants and Nationwide themselves. There are not any questions that have been left unanswered.

 

Byrnes points out that the expertise of management and the technology have kept the costs way down and the result has been that clients pay a fraction of the cost of what competitors have to charge.

 

Due to these facts, the future looks very bright for Nationwide as they continue to grow and provide services to more customers.

Marc Sparks is just one example of the many self-made individuals who have risen to the top through hard work and dedication, but every one of them is equally astounding. Sparks did not become a successful entrepreneur with a college or formal education. He was an average Texas high school student whose massive success few could have predicted, but he has a talent of his own. He has the calculating mind of a business man that Sparks refers to as his “grace of God.” Read more: @msparks5010

Now, he is at a point in his life where he has had the opportunity to operate numerous businesses and even write a book, They Can’t Eat You, about how he achieved his success. He has also had a hand in charity, donating money and time to worthy causes, particularly toward a homeless shelter in Texas called The Samaritan Inn.

More recently, Marc Sparks and his business partner Lynne Sipiora put their new idea, Spark Tank, into play. The concept behind this new program is to work with social service executives and find great business and entrepreneurial success.

Sanjay Shah Offers Insight to New Entrepreneurs

Recently, Sanjay Shah granted an interview to Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio. On the show hosted by Eric Dye, entrepreneurs gain business advice, motivation, information as well as inspiration from entrepreneurs all over the world. On the interview, the Autism Rocks and Solo Capital founder provided much insight on a range of topics as well as advice on how to become a successful business owner. He also spoke of the motivation behind Autism Rocks.

According to Sanjay, the most important thing that anyone thinking of starting a business should never underestimate is the amount of money one needs to start. He continues to advise aspiring business owners not to assume that they can do all the work themselves.

Since starting his work with Autism Rocks, Mr. Shah has combined his passion for music and his love for family with his entrepreneurial drive with a view of funding autism research and create awareness of the neurological disorder.

Sanjay Shah started his journey by studying medicine. He later realised that this was not what he desired and later became an accountant working for various investment banks that include Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. He went on to form Solo Capital after being made redundant in the 2009 recession.

Shah founded Autism Rocks with the aim of developing awareness on autism and raising money to go toward research on the same. The organization achieves all this through concerts and partnerships with world-class recording artists. Shah’s youngest son, Nikhil, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4. While having a cup of tea with Snoop Dogg, Shah developed the idea of raising money by staging various gigs. In 2014, the first Autism Rocks concert was held. Since then, the concerts have featured artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Snoop Dogg, Drake as well as well-known DJs.

Solo Capital Markets is a London based financial services firm founded by Sanjay Shah in 2011. The firm was in March 2015 reported to be worth £15.45 million, with assets totaling £67.45 million and a cash flow amounting to £30.26 million.

 

Bob Reina Focus for Talk Fusion

Many entrepreneurs of technology gain their status from revolutionary ideas, but few of them have much of a working resume besides video game rankings. However, Bob Reina is an entrepreneur who was a hard-worker before he found success in technology, and he is still working hard to fuel the success of his current projects. In his younger days, Reina was a full time commendable police officer. Graduating at the top of his training academy class, he was destined to create something great. Apparently, Bob was born with natural talent because he went on further to acquire a Criminology degree at the University of South Florida. Today, he applies his degree to the inner workings of his impressive business venture, Talk Fusion.

The video communications company, Talk Fusion, began as an idea, but it developed from a belief in its powerful service and determination to see through to the image’s full creation. In 2004, Reina wanted to send a short video clip of 10 seconds to a colleague. Unfortunately, he could not find the email capabilities he needed to make it happen. It was then that Reina realized an opportunity to create a powerful web application that could change email forever. America Online joked that the task could not be done, but Reina felt otherwise. With his new idea close at hand, Bob contacted a friend who was a genius in information technology, and the two of them created a prototype of what is now a full-fledged system of video emailing.

Using Reina’s strong leadership ability to recognize market trends and promote changing technology, the video telecommunication service charges ahead, managing to spread quickly, gaining plenty of global recognition. Since 2007, the Talk Fusion product has expanded into 85 countries worldwide. Now, the company is the 8th largest internet video provider, surpassing many big names like Yahoo!, AOL, Viacom, MegaVideo and CBS. Among its accreditations is the active participation in the Direct Selling Association, an organization that encourages professional and ethical business practice in direct selling objectives. Currently, Bob Reina empowers other people to recognize their own personal dreams in successful ways.

Majeed Ekbal: Revolutionizing Grocery Shopping

Brick and mortar stores are in trouble, because online giants like Amazon deliver goods directly to the clients. Expresso Inc. has taken this concept and extended it to the grocery sector. The company’s founder is Majeed Ekbal, a recent graduate of Washington D.C’s American University. Ekbal admits that convenience is the driving force behind his business. He even takes the convenience a step further than Amazon, giving customers the option to have the groceries left in their car trunks. Not everyone will trust the service enough to give them a copy of the key, but everyone can benefit from the convenience.
