Josh Smith is the current chief executive officer of Modular Greenhouses(http://www.modulargreenhouses.com/), a technological company based in the city of Reno, Nevada. He is designing innovative greenhouses, which aims to maximize the use of natural elements like water and sunlight to aid in the growth of plants. Josh Smith never imagined that his company will grow exponentially, and in order to give back to the community and to those who believed in him, he donates some of his products to lucky beneficiaries, and one of them is the High Desert Montessori School, located on the outskirts of Reno.
The primary objective of Josh Smith why he donated some of his products to a school is because he wanted the children to learn how to grow their own food. He noticed that the children in Reno are dependent on fast food and other unhealthy snack, which makes them obese and unhealthy. With the modular greenhouses that he donated, Smith is hoping that the children will develop an interest in gardening and planting, and he is hoping that the kids would soon grow their own food. He wanted to see them live healthy lives, eating home grown and organic fruits and vegetables.
Aside from the greenhouses that the company provided, they also gave the school a small amount of donation to buy gardening tools and necessities. The school administration thanked Josh Smith for his generosity, and they promised that the children will be learning how to plant and grow their food through the efforts of the teachers and the administration themselves. Meanwhile, Josh Smith stated that he is happy with the initiative of the school to teach the children how to plant their food, but he admitted that this is only the beginning of something else.
Josh Smith is creating a huge number of greenhouses to be given to different schools in Reno and other nearby areas. He dreams of seeing all of the schools in Nevada to have at least one greenhouse, with the children attending the school being taught how to use them, and how they will be maintained so that they would no longer rely on unhealthy food being given to them by the society.
If you’re unfamiliar with Bob Reina, he is the Founder and CEO of Talk Fusion, a purveyor of video email marketing and video conferencing solutions. In 2007, Reina began Talk Fusion by introducing video emails; the concept was a departure from traditional text emails. By using video emails, video files could be integrated into traditional emails, which eliminated the need for a separate email attachment. According to an article in inspirery.com, Reina recognized a potential market for this revolutionary way of emailing when he was unable to send a video- integrated email to his family. After conferring with an IT friend, Reina quickly realized that there was a way to circumvent this problem, and create a successful business in the process.
In an effort to scale Talk Fusion, Reina quickly became familiar with network marketing, which is a business model predicated on using independent representatives to reach potential customers. According to a PR Newswire article, Talk Fusion is marketed in upwards of 140 countries through its network of independent associates. Why did Bob Reina choose network marketing? Well, he realized that he had a great product that could revolutionize how information could be relayed; he just need to get the word out, and network marketing was the most viable option.
In an effort to differentiate Talk Fusion from other network marketing businesses, Reina uses an instant pay plan designed to allow associates to immediately receive a commission payment for any sales that they generate, which is seldom ever seen in the networking marketing realm. Typically, most businesses pay commissions on a weekly or monthly basis. Reina believes that paying his associates quickly keeps them encouraged and represents a “win-win” for everyone involved.
