Ronald Fowlkes was once a Marine who served on the front lines for his country; he has also been a leader of a SWAT team in a huge city in the United States after leaving the Marine Corps to serve in law enforcement.

 

Much like many U.S. veterans, Fowlkes has a strong, abiding love for his country — he also strives to make it a better place with his help. When he was given the opportunity to mentor kids, he jumped to it.

Mr. Folwkes also mentions that he was once a member of the Marine Corps’ Special Operations and the U.S. Army’s prestigious parachute school. By sharing some of the personal stories about his life, he can help kids understand that there are people like him that are putting all the effort and everything on the line for them. Ronald also mentions that the youth are free to ask him questions that they wouldn’t necessarily ask. Ronald also wants to make sure that the children get good guidance so the future decisions that they make will be the correct ones. Fowlkes also quipped that sports are quite useful to get through to the kids.

 

Ronald Fowlkes has also enjoyed his role as a mentor and a father. Fowkles’ son has played ice hockey for three years with the Saint Louis Blues’ Triple-A team. Ronald Fowlkes may not be the coach of his son’s hockey team, but he is the trainer and the man in charge of the hockey equipment.

 

Ronald Fowlkes also stated about his role at being the equipment “guy” for his son’s team that he can teach the youth about the importance of taking good care of one’s gear. Having well-maintained hockey gear can sometimes be the difference between winning and losing.

Certainly not each and every person has what it takes to make it big by themselves as a successful businessperson while also holding the position of owning a company. The people who don’t own the traits required to succeed in a small sized business, your efforts probably will not lead to prosperity. Including certain characteristics, one also requires the market which promotes running your own business. While some areas are better niches for business prosperity, you can obviously overcome this with the right strategy and execution.

 

Extensive institutions that require reporting to higher-ups usually hinder successful traits to emerge. Independence is needed and a feeling of freedom comes from making your own decisions and developing yourself. You’ll also need to work long hours until your goals are exceeded. Independence is hindered in this way because of unnecessary obstacles that make true progress suffer.

 

 

 

By the time meaningful change happens, it causes a broad influence on a smaller sized company which requires faster reaction time because bigger businesses simply engulf those disturbances. Visionaries must quickly and strategically respond to such alterations of outcomes to inspire positive market conditions, on the flip-side, businesspeople who aren’t willing to take decisive actions will simply see the negative results that occur afterward on services and revenue.

Can you name over 10 different brands of bottled water? Do you drink tap water? Did you know that tap water isn’t as safe as it is made out to be? The truth about tap water is that it is full of chemicals. Though these chemicals are put in place for cleaning the water, the chemicals do just the opposite if you’re consuming this stuff for a considerable amount of time. Did you know that bottled water is one of the top-selling beverages in society today? Bottled water brings in billions of dollars per year and the numbers have been growing stronger with each passing year. One of the drawbacks to bottled water comes from the actual plastic bottles. Last year, over 50 billion plastic bottles were used for drinking water, but 38 billion plastic bottles were found rotting away in the environment.

You don’t have to be a mathematics genius to see the discrepancy. This means that only 23 percent of the plastic bottles were actually recycled. These pollutants are aggressively damaging the environment at a slow rate. On the other hand, there is a bottled-water brand that is making a huge difference. Waiakea Volcanic water is at the top of its game thanks to its many benefits. This brand has only been in business since 2012, but it has helped to revolutionize the game. Waiakea has taken the first step by producing the world’s first degradable bottle. Yes, this is fully degradable to the highest degree. The bottles will degrade in an estimated 15 years because the average plastic bottle is stated to degrade in about 1,000 years.

Waiakea also donates water to the less fortunate on a regular basis to the people of Malawi. If you haven’t figured it out by now, Waiakea is a Hawaiian-based company. All in all, this only scratches the surface of what this phenomenal company has done and more great things are in store for the years to come.
