Seven-teen year old Sawyer Howitt has been called a genius by many. Howitt works for Meriwether group as its project manager.
That alone a record, the youngest project manager there will ever be to hold such a position. A native of Portland, Oregon, Sawyer was part of RFID’s team that made possible the system that many retailers use today for merchandise tracking and online shopping. He recently decided to give a few pointers to would-be entrepreneurs.
Sawyer Howitt recommends not waiting to begin your venture, claiming that if you are young, your lack of knowledge and wisdom can be made up with energy and and persistence. It is better to start when you are young than to wait until you are wiser. You learn from mistake and you can’t make mistakes until you begin.
Howitt mentioned self-confidence and how important it is. It is not a trait that you are born with, you must learn it and perfect it, he explained. Other people want to be around individuals who have self-confidence. Without self-confidence, the tips described later on won’t even be effective. Self-Confidence is one of the most important tools of a would-be entrepreneur.

He later talked about the importance of networking: advertising yourself in social settings. This can be great for a number of reasons, mainly to meet interesting people. If possible, social media is a great way to get your name out there and meet new people. Introduce yourself to people you may not immediately see yourself having a relationship with, you can’t know what will happen in the future, but you can plan for almost every surprise.
His final piece of advice ties into networking. Surround yourself with the right people. Networking is no good if you are surrounding yourself with people that cannot help you. Try to meet and become friends with people who share similar ideals, people who are knowledgeable of useful information, and people you can trust. Do not be afraid to hire someone better then you at their specific task, you should aim for people who are on your level and not below. Do not hire your friends, unless they fit all the above descriptions. You can trust friends, but are they the right person for the job?

The global companies are usually local. It is not possible for a company to run a one-size-fits-all operation when it has its branches in Europe, USA and China. There are a lot of considerations to put in place like; the regulations of the government, the talent pool, and the cultural beliefs. All these factors tend to affect how the business can be run. David McDonald, the president of OSI Group, says that the company has managed to position itself well. They now have a global network with people from the organization having offices in the branches all over the world. They have a global operation that makes them have a scale in size. In addition to this, they have local management teams that help them understand the local tastes and cultures.
OSI Group has been operating in China for more than 20 years. The presence of the company has grown with the growth of the economy of China. In September of 2013, OSI was able to open a beef-processing facility in Poland. This facility replaced an existing operation and was expected to bolster the staff of the company by 30%.
OSI Group, Aurora III., was able to acquire a controlling stake in Baho Food. Baho Food is a private Dutch firm that manufactures meat products and other food items for the retail and foodservice industries. The company operates in both Netherlands and Germany. David McDonald claims that the addition of Baho Food to their business in Europe has enabled them to increase their presence in Europe. The products and brand that Baho Food has complemented the strength of processing that OSI has. The managing director of Baho Food, John Balvers will remain with the company together with his managing team. Balvers said that he was excited to be part of the larger OSI Group as they have an outstanding relationship with their suppliers and customers.
In 2016 there was a report that was released by OSI on the global sustainability. The report showed the progress that the company was able to make based on environment and supply chain in the 2016/2017 year. The goals that the company had by the year 2020 were also outlined in that report. There were no complaints, about the report, that the firm was able to receive.
David McDonald graduated from the Iowa State University in the year 1987. He attained a BSc. Degree, specializing in Animal Science. After graduating, David joined the OSI Group, and he has managed to rise through the ranks because of his determination. He is now the president of the company.
