Dick DeVos: Tenacity, Drive, and Heart

Published / by BDtop

Dick and Betsy DeVos have come under intense scrutiny over the past year. Every move they make is studied and dissected. They have receive much criticism for their huge political donations. But their large charitable donations have not received much attention. These philanthropic figures only came to light in during Betsy’s Secretary of Education confirmation hearings.

 

In 2015 the DeVoses contributed $11.6 million to charitable causes. That figure is double the $5.3 million in campaign contributions that Dick and Betsy have given over the last 5 years. Giving seems to be part of the family bloodline. Dick, his father, and his siblings have donated a collective $1.33 billion over their lifetimes. That huge number is made even more impressive when you consider that it is about a quarter of the family’s fortune.

 

Dick and Betsy believe that education is of paramount importance. In 2015 they donated over $3 million to educational causes. The majority of this money goes directly into helping individuals. They believe that every child should be given an equal chance at a quality education. They support a voucher system which they believe will help children that are born in the “wrong” district. Dick is a believer that education is the key to success; both for the country and the individual. Every person deserves a chance to succeed. His philanthropic shows his desire to reward hard work with opportunity.

 

Dick DeVos is no stranger to hard work. He worked his way up his father’s company, Amway, to the position of President. He was fortunate to receive much opportunity and tenacious enough to take advantage. His tenure as president of Amway saw the company into its largest expansion. Under his leadership the company expanded into more than 50 countries. Upon his retirement from the corporate world Dick DeVos dedicated himself to helping his community and country.

 

Politics can be a difficult arena. One should only enter if they are prepared to help their fellow man. The DeVos family’s rich philanthropic history illustrates their desire to make their community and country great. Dick DeVos’ professional career shows him to be a man of fierce tenacity. His political activity shows him to be a man of great drive. His philanthropic life shows him to be a man of great heart.

 

All About Him

Published / by BDtop

The name is Scott Rocklage. He is from the U.S. and a proud father of two boys. One of his “dreams” is to have two nice and relaxing properties: One in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains, enjoying the wonders of nature, and other property, by the Ocean, right on the Caribbean Sea.

In regards to his career plans, at this point, his medium-short terms plans are to accomplish more with 5AM Ventures; combining his experience of several years working for the system – with the knowledge that it can bring. What motivates him on this career and encourages him to reach this goal? It is his heart that is always ready to help those in need and mostly among the Latino community. His main motivator? His son Josh. Learn more about Scott Rocklage: http://www.thestylemaponline.com/the-amazing-career-of-scott-rocklage-of-5am-ventures/ and http://www.rennovia.com/team/scott-m-rocklage/

As possible aspects of his current life may get in the way of achieving goals for this year, he was just involved in a major car accident; thanks to God, he is fine but knows that this will take time from his agenda – time that, at this point, is already very limited.

Also, previous to that incident, he received some news of a major surgery needing to get done in just three days from today. He will always face difficult situations that sometimes can move one’s focus and goals, but persistency is the key: Grab the positive and keep reaching goals. Read more; Scott Racklage | Crunchbase

There is a song that motivate him when facing scenarios; it is written in Spanish, but the cursory translation goes pretty much like this:

If there is a mountain that seems impossible to cross or reach or a river you cannot cross to take you to the other side, there’s a God that does what no one else can do. This song both gave him a sense of relaxation in mind and soul and encouraged him.

All I can conclude is that, new challenges will always come: New doors will open, and some others will get closed, but we need to keep reaching for our dreams. Rocklage wants to be successful and will try his best to continue this goal.
