Jim Hunt VTA Publications is a very studious person who enjoys investing and finding out all there is to know about it, while at the same time sharing the secrets he’s discovered with anyone who wants to become an investor. Hunt specifically studies the stock market and has figured out ways to buy good value stocks and sell them at the right time. Hunt decided to sit down with Ideamensch to tell them a little about his background and why he started his investment advisory company on

Hunt said he started his company, VTA Publications because he had previously worked at a large bank in the UK and felt the bank was only interested in making profits instead of helping customers on So he decided to start a company that could show customers how to invest by going around the banks and putting their money in their own hands. Hunt says he finds his days most productive by starting out in the mornings with a workout, making all his major trades and business operations before lunch, and then slowing things down a little in the afternoon and spending time with family in the evening. He believes having this balance is what makes his business successful at Hunt is an avid reader who recommends that people starting out with investing and stock trading should read Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

VTA Publications has been the cornerstone of most of Hunt’s work. This company has put together distance learning packages that cover financial subjects of various kinds including retirement planning guided by the bible, learning how to read stock charts, and executing your trades through little-known strategies. They also have seminars about business and investing where businessmen from around the world come to speak, and they’ve been recorded to DVD.

Jim Hunt also started “Wealth Wave” and “Making Mum a Millionaire” along with the company, and through YouTube videos he has shown the steps to these projects. “Wealth Wave” is about an investment strategy to use when a bear market is about to come, and “Making Mum a Millionaire” is about how you can make ten trades that could make you millions and help you become tax exempt.

The Lip Balm industry has been controlled by a few major players for most of the last decade. It is no secret that companies like Chapstick and Blistex had a hold on the industry. This is not a surprise. Chapstick is owned by the mega giant Pfizer and Blistex is owned by parent company Clorox. With this it would become quite difficult for other companies to break into the business of selling lip balm products. This did not deter the Evolution of Smooth though. Fast Company describes EOS as a company that saw a clear void in the industry, and the leaders behind the EOS lip balm saw a great opportunity to get into this market.

What EOS founders would do to make name stand out is get with companies like Disney and Keds to promote the EOS lip balm products. This is what has driven the demand for these products. When EOS made a special Alice in Wonderland collection of lip balm in connection with Disney this lip balm sold out in a day. Some of this lip balm even showed up on eBay,, and people were buying it for hundreds of dollars after it sold out from other people that were reselling it.

This is something that was a portion of the successful for EOS, but this clearly proved one thing: consumers were interested in what was going on with EOS. They saw things like this connection with Keds and the connection with Disney, and consumers knew that this lip balm was something different. The Evolution of Smooth has made people really look at what is happening in the lip balm industry. It is a company with founders that pushed their way into this environment. They had to find a way to get beyond the competition and pave a new path.


In 1955, Richard Marvin “Dick” DeVos Jr. was born into a family that believed in hard work and entrepreneurship. It began with his father, Rick DeVos, co-founder of Amway. A native of Michigan, DeVos has strong civic ties to the state. In 1990, he won his election for a seat on the Michigan State Board of Education. A short six years later, then-governor John Engler appointed DeVos to the Grand Valley State University Board of Control. In 1993, Devos and his wife, Betsy, were co-chairs of the Education Freedom Fund, which provides private scholarships to families of low income. It seems this was the beginning of the Devos spirit of giving.


DeVos was co-chairman of the “Kids First! Yes!” campaign committee. This committee sponsored an initiative that would amend the Michigan constitution to accept vouchers and tuition tax credits for private K-12 education. The Devoses also created the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation which has given monetary donations to such groups as the American Education Reform Council, Choices for Children and Children First America. They also fund Christian schools in the West Michigan area. But, their greatest money gifts are those that go to charitable contributions. These will add up to nearly $139 million over their lifespans. And because of the sheer amount of their contributions, they have several vocal critics. Thus, the DeVoses are disclosing the truth of their giving.


In 2015, the DeVoses handed out $11.6 million in contributions. It is believed that the DeVos family lifetime giving should be assessed at about 1.33 billion. This amounts to approximately one quarter of the DeVos estimated $5.2 billion fortune. Just over $3 million of these donations were to educational causes. A second award of their foundation was $357,000 toward groups that support education reform. Other foundation donations went to various universities and academies in the state of Michigan, but also donated to Potter’s House in Wyoming and Rehoboth Christian School in New Mexico. Devos says that their donations reflect their main concern of improving education, and not just in their home state.


DeVos critics accuse the family of such extreme charitable giving to create a “smokescreen” to hide their donations to political interests. In 2006, DeVos had a failed run for governor of Michigan. He never put his hat in the ring again. A spokesman for the couple, John Truscott, states that the DeVos report of charitable giving is transparent, and the bulk of the donations given are aimed at giving direct help to the recipients. Although the DeVoses believe in strengthening the institution of education, they also donate to civic and community causes, leadership and development, Health & Human Services and churches.


The Devoses tend to donate without any strings attached. It seems they don’t need to know how the money is spent. However, they earmark donations when the cause is somewhere that they can make a difference. One example of this is their investment in physicians and a researcher in childhood cancers. They feel that this connection has helped raise the survival rate of patients with deadly childhood cancers at the local Helen DeVos’ Children’s Hospital.


These days, the DeVos children are also involved in the foundation. Dick and Betsy said that the fresh perspectives of their children help find places that they could be investing further. Thus, the foundation added the word “family” to its name.

A current online article that I just read looks at the issue of how patient reviews can really affect a healthcare provider’s online reputation.

These days, an increasingly large number of consumers are making all sorts of purchasing decisions based upon online reviews from other consumers. It only stands to reason that many healthcare consumers would also decide which healthcare provider to utilize based upon patient online reviews. Because of the potential serious nature and high costs that can be involved, lots of people pay close attention to patient reviews.

According to the author of theonlinereputationreviews article, people are generally more apt to post negative reviews than positive reviews online. These people want their views to be heard, and they often expect to receive a response from the party that they are addressing.

It is usually best to address any negative comments with assurances that every effort will be made to review the posts, and attempt to find appropriate solutions to any complaints. By doing so, the receiver of the comments can build credibility, and help to improve their own online reputation.

When positive comments or reviews regarding a medical practice’s services are posted online, it is equally important that they be received with true gratitude.

It is also recommended for medical practices to use other proactive measures when it comes to maintaining a good online presence. One way to do this is to regularly monitor websites where reviews of medical practices are commonly posted.

Another way that a physician may build and/or improve his or her digital image is to simply ask their satisfied patients to write a brief review online of the services they’ve received.

By remaining proactive and consistently monitoring online reviews, today’s medical practice can be aware of its patients’ levels of satisfaction, and can take the steps necessary to keep its online reputation in good regard.
