Marc Sparks heavily supports many different charities in the Dallas, Texas area where he currently resides. He supports the Samaritan Inn in Texas, which is a long-term shelter for people without homes to help them get back on their feet. On any given day, they house about 160 people, and additionally about 75 people are turned away each week because the facility is full. That alone breaks Sparks’ heart as he feels he shouldn’t have to turn away anyone – ever! He wants to expand the shelter till everyone has a place to stay. The average stay is about 4-5 months, and the person is able to find a job, get back on their feet, and move along on their own. This is usually done by finding a condo/apartment of their own where they can start again and pay their own way. Seeing people who come back to visit him and thank him for the transformation that the place offered in their lives makes what he does 100% worth it!

Academy” which is a massive network of magnet schools in impoverished areas in Dallas, Texas that help kids get into these schools even if they would never make it into or afford otherwise.

Shared office spaces are one of the answers to a lot of wishes. Before shared office spaces, people had to go to work at a certain time. They had very little control over their schedules. If they wanted to work, then they often had to wake up early and be at the company at a certain time. While some people did not have a problem with that, there are those that wanted to sleep in. Fortunately, there are shared office spaces that are open for 24 hours. This gives people the chance to work at anytime they want. They don’t have to worry about a boss writing them up or firing them.
One of the 24 hour locations is Workville, which offers shared office space all over NYC. One of the great features that come with being at a shared office space is that people are more able to take advantage of all of the different areas in the space. For instance, Workville has three terraces and a couple of cafe lounges that people can rest at. It is almost like a home away from home. Workville is especially good at making people feel at home. When people are more relaxed, they could be more productive as opposed to having a ton of people on their backs.
With Co-working spaces, people have enough respect to focus on their own work no matter what time they come in. They eventually learn when they are most productive. Afterwards, they make sure that they come in at that time so that they can make the most of their productivity. People can also do their work away from the shared office space if they choose. When there is freedom, there is a will to work. People will achieve higher levels of success with the right type of freedom that they can get from the facility.

Wirth also discussed previous years where the ski industry has had to endure extreme weather conditions and the way that these instances have shaped the way that the ski industry responds to drought situations now.
Andy Wirth ended the interview by giving a few substantial reasons for his hope in the continued success of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort, as well as the continued success of the business and sporting companies located in California and other areas affected by the drought.
The radio host from KCRW began his interview by discussing the California drought and the general effect it was having on the economic system in and around the state. Andy Wirth agreed that the the drought was causing businesses to have to work harder to maintain their usual levels, but instead of being negative about this situation, Wirth discussed the importance of developing businesses through rough economic times.
Wirth believes that less than ideal conditions, such as the current California drought, can build executives into long term leaders and solidify their businesses in the economic world.
Andy Wirth stated that some of his most significant shaping as a business leader have come at a time when the economy was not ideal or when his company was experiencing a particularly difficult period. Wirth believes that the current economy will turn around and ultimately result in strengthened businesses and leaders.
During the interview, Wirth was also asked to discuss whether or not his business would suffer greatly due to the drought because of the specific industry he worked in.
Andy Wirth admitted that the Squaw Valley Ski resort faced significant difficulties in the day to day operations of a Ski Resort in the middle of a long lasting, state wide, drought. Wirth, however, quickly dispelled the idea that the ski resort business would suffer a loss because of the difficulties caused by the California state wide drought.
Wirth stated to the interviewer that Ski Valley Ski resort would continue to work hard to deliver quality service to its customers and that they would work as hard as possible to ensure that not a single visitor to the ski resort would experience a lacking resort experience because of this drought.

Coffee is one of the most loved drinks in the world. Recent studies in the coffee industry and the health industry have brought some good news to those that love their daily brew. The company Organo Gold has introduced a new product line that infuses Ganoderma Lucidum, also known as “The King of Herbs”, into their coffee and tea.
Ganoderma Lucidum is a 4,200 year old Chinese herb that alkalizes the body, facilitates detoxification, boosts oxygen delivery through the body, strengthens the immune system, and controls inflammation. The best news of all is that this new line of health improving coffee isn’t just good for your body, it’s pleasing for your taste buds. While the health world tends to lean towards the belief that if something has been around for thousands of years, it simply must work, Organo Gold feels differently about their products. Instead of just blind faith, they urge customers to try a box of tea or coffee and you’ll feel the difference for yourself.
Organo Gold is an independent distributor of coffee and tea products. The company is based out of Canada and run by Bernardo T. Chua. Chua is originally from the Philippines where he spent years working in the multi-level marketing industry. He was an executive with Gano Excel where he was transferred to Hong Kong and then Canada before finally making the move to the United States. He moved to California where he became the president of Gano Excel USA, a company that marketed products with ganoderma.
After years of vast experience in the industry, CrunchBase tells that Chua founded Organo Gold in 2008 which is a group of companies together that operate under the parent company name of Organo Gold and Coffee Connoisseur. His company sells a range of healthy bioactive coffee products that include numerous different healthy herbs or plants. As of 2015, he has rebranded his company to simply be called Organo. Bernardo can be found on Twitter, and he’s also got a few speeches on YouTube worth watching.

This year marks the first year that applications to the program will be made online. The whole process has been significantly shortened to only 30 minutes down from six weeks.
