Christian Broda Called The Dollar Strength Months Ago

Some economists acted surprise when the proverbial other shoe dropped from China. People in the financial industry have been studying the moves from the Chinese government for months. The recent drops in their stock market has caused investors in the United States to ignore the relatively good news that has been released about the economy. The idea that housing starts were up and consumer confidence increased quickly gave ways to fears that China could bring the whole thing down. The stock market saw tremendous amounts of market capitalization dissipate in the last week.

The bigger question is, should any economists or companies that employ economists have been surprised by the recent events? They are paid to study the movements of the economy and the market. What will happen to the U.S. Dollar? If they have been listening to Christian Broda, they would have placed their bets six months ago that they dollar would continue to strengthen throughout the year. When many were saying that the USD would lose its position as the reserve currency of the globe, Broda flatly said it wasn’t going to happen. Broda went on the record as early as 2009 explaining why he felt the dollar would be handled carefully and the inflation would be kept very low. Broda, who is a Duquesne Capital Management managing director and University of Chicago professor, has been outspoken about his belief that the dollar would weather numerous storms in 2015.

There are still some economists out there who are clinging to the belief that the Fed will raise interest rates in September. These brave economists think it’s the perfect time to raise rates simply because of the incredible volatility of the markets. Others argue that would be insane because it would slam the door on already-slow growth. One could argue that a rate hike could be slid in because the “bad news” has already been baked in stock prices, especially in the last few days. Few people could have predicted that the United States of America would have stayed in an ostensible “zero interest rate environment” for all these years. Will the Fed, under Chairwoman Zellen finally begin to cut ties on the “cheap money” that’s been flooding the financial markets for so long? That’s the trillion dollar question that will soon be answered. Major investors and institutions have to make the right calls now before Yellen makes her announcement. If they don’t, they can sit back and watch while their huge investments are vaporized. Some are openly questioning whether the Fed will make a move for the markets like they’ve been doing, or for the betterment of the economy. Everyone will have to wait and see. Investors are placing their bets now.

TOWN Residential Focuses on Growth and Transparency

Manhattan and New York City’s residential market is doing great according to Andrew Heiberger and he feels that his company, TOWN Residential, is in the perfect position to take advantage of that market. CEO Andrew Heiberger founded TOWN Financial in 2010 in Manhattan with a focus on NYC luxury real estate, high-end rentals and new development marketing for condominiums. Two years ago, TOWN had nine offices and over 520 licensed real estate agents and has since grown to eleven offices with over 650 real estate agents and staff.

Earlier this year, TOWN formed a partnership with the Miami based brokerage and development firm Fortune International. Fortune sold $4 billion of real estate last year and claims more than 35 percent of Miami’s real estate market. They have more than one thousand agents and will share marketing, communications and social media with TOWN. TOWN has many clients looking for properties in Miami and Fortune has clients looking for properties in New York City, so this partnership looks to be beneficial for both firms. Heiberger is already set to expand his business to London and he is also looking to expand in Los Angeles.

Heiberger is committed to being open and transparent about the amount of business TOWN does because he sees it as being beneficial to his representatives and clients. They want to know how much business TOWN does and how they compare to other brokerage firms, but some people feel this information should be confidential. Opening the books and sharing real numbers can be helpful in showing the type of growth that TOWN is going through. For instance, at the end of 2014, TOWN had $1.86 billion in total sales and lease which was 15.6 percent more than the end of 2013. As of June 30, 2015, TOWN had 2,056 sales and leases worth a total of $1.188 billion which is a 22 percent increase over the same time last year.

Town is a growing brokerage firm and they have the numbers to prove it. Heiberger is strategically looking to make partnerships with other brokerage firms to increase his growing operations. As long as the real estate market continues to strengthen, TOWN will continue to have success.

Andy Wirth Lands Reno Airport Board Chair Position


Andy Wirth has had a long history of success in business enterprises. For the better part of the past couple of decades the man has been known for his work as the CEO of Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe reason. As the CEO he has managed to grow these two resorts into world class destinations that have brought almost countless numbers of tourists to the states. Now Wirth is setting his sights on another target and way to help his home: the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board. The ride to the top wasn’t always smooth and one deviation in 2013 might have meant none of this would happen.

In October of 2013 Andy Wirth and a few friends were going skydiving out in Lodi, California. Taking their regular routine it seemed like everything would be simple for the experienced and licensed skydivers. Wirth had become an avid fan of the sport and he had done hundreds of jumps over the years. However, something went terribly wrong on this jump and Wirth ended up disoriented and forced to put down his chute amidst a vineyard. The Squaw Valley CEO ended up clipping a steal beam and losing his arm before getting caught up by his chute.

With the danger of bleeding out prevalent, Wirth was forced to stay calm and make sure that he wouldn’t die while waiting for help to arrive. So mastering his shock, Wirth began humming a song and staunching the blood flow. Soon after he was saved. Then followed 50 days in a hospital and more than 20 surgeries in order to get his arm re-attached. You’d think that would give the man reason to calm his life down, right? Well, you’d be wrong. For Andy Wirth, working is a passion.

So it doesn’t surprise us to see the experienced CEO being sworn in as chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board alongside three other new members. Wirth brings a host of professional experience in the industry with himself to his chair and he has the vision and abilities to utilize the position appropriately, leveraging more traffic to the area. Wirth has already spent time as a liaison on the board and this is a sensible step up.

Alongside Andy Wirth we saw Lisa Gianoli, Jessic Sferraza, and Jenifer Rose all sworn in. Wirth spoke highly of their abilities and promised listeners that they would use everyone’s vision to “take our airport to a higher level”.

Google and Stanford Research Advances Image Recognition Software

Google and Stanford research working separately are forging ahead in the field of image recognition software. Image recognition software is a method by which a computer may identify objects by collecting data and searching a database to identify that object. Google and Stanford using natural language processing and merging it with neural networks have created advanced AI networks capable of accurate product recognition.

This new advance in the software allows it to teach itself to pick out an object from a group with great precision, whereas previous versions could only recognize a single object. After the software recognizes the object, it will write a caption beneath it. Already large retailers are taking advantage of the new advances in image recognition. It’s revolutionizing online shopping, and a user can simply snap a picture with their cell phone to begin a search for that item. The software searches massive databases of images to find a match. When the match is found the information about that item is returned to the user allowing for real-time shopping by the consumer.

Slyce a visual search provider was founded in 2013, and it’s working with six major retailers to bring real-time shopping to their customers. Visual search providers like Slyce work with retailers to provide technology to work with images streamed in by a consumer. Proprietary image technology is integrated into existing retailer applications and databases, and when a consumer scans in an image, it’s streamed to an established database which enables it to match up with the scanned in picture. The matches are exact, and they enable the shopper to proceed and purchase the item on the spot.

Slyce has four retail applications available that can be downloaded to use when shopping with their retail clients. They are all iOS and Android capable, but each provides different services. The application SnipSnap clips coupons and allows the consumer to redeem the coupon right from their device. Pounce searches databases to pick out a product from an uploaded image. Pounce and Craves search fashions databases at retailers like Macy’s and Neiman Marcus and allows real-time shopping. Slyce’s Drivetrain application works on the retail side.

The new research and advances by Google and Stanford in image recognition software is making it possible for companies like Slyce to bring the advances to industry and the public. Soon a consumer will be able to focus on one object out of a field objects and then search the web for the information it needs to buy that product in real-time. It’s a complex process, but no longer out of reach.

A Look at Organo Gold Coffee

Organo Gold is a Canadian based coffee company founded in Richmond, British Columbia.

Ganoderma lucidum, a particular type of mushroom, known widely in Asian culture as a medicinal and supernatural mushroom grows on wood (from both live and dead trees) in the more tropical areas of Asia.

This plantation happens to be one of the biggest in the world. Organo Gold is a company committed to sustaining the world and giving back to the planet and the people living on it at the same time. In more recent events, Organo Gold has teamed up with boxer Manny Pacquiao in an effort to improve the lives of others.

Bernardo Chua, the CEO of Organo Gold, is a Philippians native. He once served as President of the California based company Gano Excel. In addition Chua has successfully headed a number of MLM programs. Organo Gold is by far his biggest venture to date.

Products offered by Organo Gold include: various types and flavors of coffee including, black coffee, café latte, café mocha among others; an assortment of red, green and black teas; nutraceuticals including, mycelium, spore powder and even grape seed oil; and personal care products such as beauty soap and toothpaste.

Marc Sparks Emphasizes the Need for Amazing Customer Service

Almost all of us have dealt with customer service before. Customer service is the difference between getting repeat customers who happily refer their friends and family to your business or customers who never come back again and possibly tell everyone they know not to do business with you.

Entrepreneur Marc Sparks covers this topic on his blog. He has helped over 60 companies get their start over the past few decades with his private equity firm, Timber Creek Capital.

Since he has been in the business of helping other businesses get started and thrive (or sometimes not thrive), I’m sure he knows first hand how customer service affects the income coming in.

I agree with Sparks. It doesn’t matter how much money a company spends on advertising if they don’t follow it up with outstanding customer service. If someone chooses to do business with you and buy your product, make sure you treat them well! I think the best thing to do is to keep in mind what you expect when you’re on the other side.

In the post, Sparks goes on to list research statistics about how the percentage of people who buy from a company again due to awesome customer service and how many discontinued shopping with a particular company due to terrible customer service. He also describes what people surveyed thought constituted great service and what they hated about customer service.

Making mistakes is part of being human. Everyone makes them once in a while. Sometimes people get frustrated trying to figure out how to hook up their cable box to the television or they forget the password to log into their bank account. Sometimes a fast food worker forgets to put napkins in the to-go bag when you drive through or maybe even some of your food. When a corporation deals with these problems in a quick and efficient way, they are on the path to being on top in their industry.

In today’s world of internet marketing where there are several websites dedicated to reviewing and rating every single item, place, and person, it’s easier than it’s ever been to research a company’s reputation before ever doing business with them. Whether you’re an Uber driver or a CEO, your reputation is dependent on satisfied clients. A company’s reputation is the principal ingredient for a successful business.
