How to Minimize Attacks with Search Cleanup

For an owner of a small business, having a good reputation can be the most important factor that determines whether your business succeeds or fails. Having a good reputation can be the difference it takes to getting top clients, securing capital or bank financing, and even attracting employees. While you can do everything right and with a lot of integrity, all people run the risk of being attacked online.

 

If you are attacked online, the first thing that you should do is do everything you can to clean up your online reputation. Along with the help of the website searchcleanup.com, you can ensure that the amount of negative news about you and your company is reduced. They will do this by both working to clean up bad content and by also replacing it with good content.

 

Another tip to follow is to ensure that you follow the high road. While it can be tempting to get into an online battle with the attacker, this will likely only lead to more negative press. The best thing you can do is ignore the situation as it is bound to resolve itself, particularly after you have enlisted the help of searchcleanup.com.

 

After you have been attacked online, it would be a good idea to reach out to your clients to explain the situation. While most of them will likely have a hard time believing the negative information, it would be beneficial to get out ahead of the story before anyone else hears about it. This will give your clients extra security that any negative information about you and your company is false.

 

Brad Reifler Really Helps the New Investor Sort Things Out

There are a lot of investors that need help. Some people get brokers to do the dirty work of taking risks, and they essentially sit back and leave their financial future to someone else. Others may join a 401K plan and put this on auto pilot as well. This is the out-of-sight and out-of-mind type of reaction that most people use to stray away from their investments.

Reifler has managed to do something different. He has given people some tips on investing because he has decades of experience. He knows that sitting your investments on auto-pilot is not a true option. What Reifler has learned can help a lot of people out.

In business he knows that he should focus more on non-accredited investors that do not have the ability to invest wisely. He has presented these investors with better options to building a financial future. Reifler knows about loss because he has invested in things like a college savings plan for his daughter that he thought was a sure thing. When he saw that there was less money than what he put in at the end of this it was a wakeup call.

Brad Reifler has become someone that is able to invest with more knowledge because he has studied the world of investing. He is the CEO of Forefront Capital. He helps those people that are trying to build their own portfolios. What he passes down as advice is the same type of advice that he would give his own clients.

Brad has stated that it is going to be pertinent to get involved with your fund managers and know what they are doing. It is nice to think that they will just have everything in place and you will not have to do anything. This is not realistic though. You still need to do your homework.

Another reality is that there are fewer people that are putting all of their money in stocks because there are more opportunities to diversify and see better returns. The stock market is too risky to push all of your portfolio off into this sea of confusion. The returns are great when the risk pays off, but there should be some level of security with other things that are less risky. There are mutual funds. There are also annuities. There are many other things that Brad Reifler would recommend for building diverse portfolios.

How to React When Your Reputation Is Under Attack

Any entrepreneur knows that in order to succeed in the business world, one must work hard to build up a reputation of integrity and trust. You may think that once you have built up a solid reputation, you can continue operating your business with no problems in that area. While this might happen if you’re lucky, this isn’t always the case. Your business may face attacks on its reputation from various sources. Now that sharing information online has become so easy, negative information about your company can spread very quickly. These attacks can come from your competitors or disgruntled former customers that are never happy, despite your best efforts to resolve their issues. If you let this negative information go unchecked, your customers and potential customers could see it and believe it is true, even if it is full of inaccuracies.

 

A company that has experts in online reputation, such as SearchCleanup.com, can give you some useful advice on how to manage attacks on what you’ve worked to build.

 

The first thing to consider is that you shouldn’t get into a mud tossing game with those who attack you. If you get angry at them, you will come across as unprofessional. You don’t want to stay completely quiet, but instead respond in a measured way. You should then proceed to let your loyal customers know that your business is going to continue as normal. Give them the assurance that you’re in for the long haul and the problems you’re facing won’t cause you to slow down or close your business.

 

Remember that those who value you and your business do so because they’re happy with what you offer. Therefore, the more value you put out, the more the focus shifts away from those that attack you. Focus your energy on improving your products and services, putting out more content or anything else that you know is valued by your customers.
Finally, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. A good source of help could be SearchCleanup.com, a company that helps you remove negative articles online.

George Soros’ Generous Contributions towards Political Campaigns.

George Soros showed his support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid by donating 6 million dollars in December 2015 to Priorities USA Action, which is the primary PAC backing her. This big check raised his total donation amount to 8 million dollars in 2015, after previously donating 1 million to Priorities USA and another 1 million to America Bridge 21st Century. According to information obtained from the US Federal Election Commission, the super PAC raised 25 million dollars in 2015’s second half and a total of 41 million dollars that year. Thirty-six million dollars were still unused at the beginning of 2016.

According to the Politico Magazine, other figures that donated in the second half of 2015 include the Hollywood tycoon Haim Saban and his wife Chery Saban, who jointly contributed 3 million dollars. Donald Sussman and Herb Sandler gave 1.5 million dollars each and Working for Working Americans, which is a union-connected PAC also donated 1.5 million dollars.

Mr. Soros is viewed as an indicator of future trends among the wealthy Democrats. He is among the few people who have been willing to donate millions to back political campaigns. In 2004, he gave 20 million dollars to groups that supported John Kelly’s presidential bid. Soros later cut his political spending after Kelly lost. He was intensively persuaded to donate in 2012 but only gave 1 million dollars to Priorities USA to fund the reelection of President Obama. He, however, regretted to have chosen to support Obama instead of Clinton, who gave him a chance to discuss policy. Soros’ massive donation is expected to motivate conservative billionaires to give more than 1 billion dollars to super PACs.

George Soros is a Hungary-American business magnate and philanthropist. He is the founder of the Soros Fund Management, which is a very successful business and has played a significant role in the creation of his wealth. He also established the Open Society Foundation, which conducts charity activities. Mr. Soros was born in 1930 in Budapest and witnessed the Nazi occupation in his motherland during the World War II. In 1947, he fled to England from the Communist-dominated Hungary. Soros went to the London School of Economics where he studied finance before moving to the United States to start his career.

Mr. George Soros participated actively in philanthropy since 1979 when he began by donating money to assist black students to join Cape Town University in South Africa. His charity organization, Open Society Foundation, is currently active in more than 100 countries and strive to promote the principles of human rights, an open society, and transparency.

Halvorssen Slams Socialism – Supports Sanders

In a recent interview on Fox Busness Network’s ‘The Intelligence Report’, Thor Halvorssen slammed Socialism as being antithetic to basic human rights. Going over several definitions of Socialism and what they essentially mean, the Human Rights Foundation Founder and President cites personal experience when it comes to how Socialist Governments usually end up operating. However, the biggest shock in the interview came when he announced that he had actually made the largest allowable contribution to Senator Sanders’ Campaign.

One might wonder why someone who has experienced personal tragedy at the hands of an Authoritarian Socialist Government might donate to a Presidential Campaign that many, even on the left decry as Socialist. Thor Halvorssen explains that while he does not consider Socialism itself to be the issue, rather the way the policies are varied out by the Government in charge, he mentions that the other Democratic frontrunner is, in fact, much worse.

He goes on to explain that the other candidate for the Left has taken in the past, and continues to accept donations and other funds from nations that practice questionable Human Rights policies. She has accepted “… Millions and millions of dollars” from Dictatorships like Algeria and Bahrain (to name a few) that execute people for being homosexual, have little to no freedom of the press, and even “ban Christmas.”

Mr. Halvorssen then goes into more detail about his personal experiences with Dictatorships that operate with a Socialist Mask: that his Mother was shot by the Venezualen Government under Hugo Chavez, his father was a Political Prisoner, and his first cousin currently is one, as well. It is easy to see that Thor is passionate about Human Rights, especially as they translate to the US Presidential campaign, and how the candidates stack up with regards to world Human Rights issues.

The interview really brings into focus the idea that Americans face a huge responsibility at this time in the election cycle. We must all do our own research into the candidates for whom we are considering voting, because the victor will be responsible for relations with nations who may or may not be involved with egregious human rights violations.
