Betsy DeVos Is Looking To Change The Minds Of Americans Who Are Stuck In The Past

Standard

Betsy DeVos is a Michigan-based entrepreneur who has been working to change the minds of people stuck in the ways of the past for many years. It has been her intention to get rid of the mindset that believes that students in the United States must attend a school based solely on the location of their home. She feels this is a very limited way of looking at educational possibilities and has been advocating for educational freedom for Americans for most of her adult life.

 

Betsy DeVos hopes that more people will wake up to the fact that we live in a digital world. With the rise of the internet, there are now many new educational possibilities. One of these is that young students don’t need to show up to a specific school building to receive an education. DeVos commented in a recent interview that digital learning as well as blended learning provide new opportunities for young students who pick up technology rather quickly. She believes it would be silly for the American educational system to not embrace digital learning so it can reach more students.

 

Betsy DeVos is also an advocate for homeschooling, which she feels is a completely valid educational option for many people today. While it used to be that mainly rural kids were homeschooled, there are now many urban families who are opting to do so. The reason is that parents are getting tired of having their power taken away by rules that force their kids to attend a failing school. DeVos is also a proponent of charter and private schools. She has been fighting to change laws so they allow for tax credits and vouchers, which can help to pay the tuition costs into these kinds of schools.

 

While some people believe that charter schools are the complete answer to the educational woes that the United States is facing, Betsy DeVos has pointed out that these schools are difficult to get started and that they take a lot of resources to operate. She does believe that they are a better option than many of today’s public schools, but she also hopes that people will take a closer look at private schools. DeVos has supported private schools through donations from the Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. In fact, her charitable organization donated over $7 million to the educational sector in 2015, and some of that money went to private schools in need.

Some of the attributes that differentiate entrepreneurs from other businesses personalities are their ability to identify a unique approach towards the development of solutions to the current world problems, their passion to make that dream come true and most importantly, their ability to take risks in the pursuit of their ideas, visions, and dreams. It takes a very strong person to venture into the business world with their startups and visions that only them can see how far they can go. Most often than not, entrepreneurs risk all their savings, credit and reputations to achieve their goals which are sometimes not achieved and in cases like that of Hussain Swajani, they experience success and become recognized businesses. Hussain Swajani is a renowned businessman and a risk-taking entrepreneur who is known for two of his business ventures, the DAMAC group, and global logistics. Global logistics was his first business venture in the United Arab Emirates. It started as a small catering business located in Dubai, before gaining clients like the United States Army among others. The revenue acquired in this business was later used to start a real estate venture that is now known as DAMAC properties.

Detailed Background Of The Risk Taker’s Businesses.

It was after working with the Abu Dhabi gas company, GASCO, that Mr. Swajani ventured into the entrepreneurial world in pursuit of a catering business idea. Through relentless hard work, day by day investment, and business ingenuity, the young Swajani was able to lead his business to unexpected growth. It didn’t take long before big institutions like Bechtel, a United States construction company, and the United States Army became clients. From a small idea and a huge risk on the part of Mr. Swajani, the venture is now an international food company catering for parts of Asia, the Far East, and North Africa among other areas of the world. When the real estate market opened up in Dubai, Swajani decided to try his luck risking the finances from the previous business. The Damac owner is now experiencing yet another successful business career in the real estate industry.
