Online Reputation Management Companies Are Your Best Defense

Ones online reputation is an afterthought. Negative information about yourself is being shared with millions of people on the internet. The internet seems to be a simple tool to gather information or for entertainment, but it can be a hotbed of drama for those who find information about themselves.

The realization that your name, address, phone number, where you work, including a collection of recognizable people with your last name, could be published on the web, without your permission. This information is not private because it is in the public domain. Do you have any recourse? Can you have false, embarrassing information about your character flaws or defamatory information about yourself removed from the public glare? The answer is “maybe.”

A cottage industry, Reputation Defender companies, has flourished to repair your reputation. Perception is everything. Your reputation is sacred to maintain your standing with your friends and employer. Online companies cover your back and promise to protect your reputation using specific methods. However, there are exceptions, such as attempting to remove public records.

Removing negative information about you from the internet is a slow and arduous procedure which requires constant follow-up. The internet must regularly be scrubbed to find any information about you. It is reported that 92% of U.S. companies consider the information they find about you online, before the interview. At least, 34% of hiring managers decide not to hire you based on an online search. Your online record is permanent.

Online reputation management companies will educate and teach you how to attack negative information about yourself. These companies are not your lifelong partners. You cannot escape archived information about yourself. In October of 2001, a digital device called a Wayback Machine was developed. This digital tool archives all internet information and then it continues to analyze any new versions of the information.

The information control on the web is not just to manage reputation. Facebook is constantly changing its algorithms to detect information it finds to be damaging. The internet is a megaphone of your voice and the voice of others who speak about you. Watch what you say.

Dick DeVos Details His Family’s Charitable Giving Over The Years

Dick DeVos, the son of one of the co-founders of Amway Corporation, recently detailed just how much he and his family have given away over the years. The total came up to almost $139 million over the course of he and his wife’s, Betsy, lifetimes. In just 2015 they gave away $11.6 million to various charitable causes. Adding in the money given away by his extended family including his father, they gave away $104 million in just 2015 which places them as 24th on Forbes’ “American Top Givers” list.

A large portion of the money that Dick and Betsy donate is for educational causes, including the West Michigan Aviation Academy, Potter’s House in Wyoming, and the Compass College of Cinematics Arts among others. In total, they gave $3 million to education causes in 2015. Much of the money goes to causes that back school choice. Dick DeVos has said that it’s very unfair that a child’s zip code is the primary determinate in the quality of the education they receive. Children in poor communities who have sub-standard education deserve a much better education than what they are currently receiving.

Arts and culture are another big focus of their charitable foundation, the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. They gave $2.4 million in 2015 to organizations such as the DeVos Institute of Arts Management which is located at the University of Maryland. They also support ArtPrize, an annual art competition that is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Dick DeVos started his professional career at Amway in 1974. He was involved in many different parts of the business including marketing, manufacturing, finance, and research and development. He earned a role as a Vice President in 1984 and led the company’s effort to expand internationally. When he took over in this role, only 5% of the company’s revenue was from international sales. By the time he moved on to another role, international sales made up a little more than half of Amway’s revenue.

In 1991, Dick was tapped by his father to be the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Orlando Magic NBA team which he had recently purchased. Dick served in this role for a few years before he rejoined Amway as the company’s President. During this time, he also co-founded a company his wife called The Windquest Group which is an investment company that focuses on technology and manufacturing.

Dick DeVos is a graduate of Northwood University, earning his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. He also attended both Wharton School’s and Harvard Business School’s executive study programs, although he didn’t graduate from either. He has been given honorary doctors by three universities; Central Michigan University, Northwood University, and Grove City College.
