Goettl Air Conditioning Renovates A 94-Year-Old Woman’s Home Free Of Any Charges

Recently, Goettl Air Conditioning partnered with The Sunny Plumber to donate $14,000 of work to a 94-year-old Las Vegan woman. The charity work will significantly improve the living condition of the social security-dependent woman.
For the last 33 years, Jean Jackson has been living in her one-bedroom trailer in Nevada. Over the period, she has relied on two small window air conditioners to make the trailer livable. However, things have not been easy for her. Recently, the old air conditioners broke down. Her efforts to repair them did not succeed. This is because the air conditioners are not in production and there were no spare parts left in Las Vegas stores.

Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber: Good Deed Brings Cool Relief
Jean’s only option was to replace the air conditioners with new models. However, she depends only on Social Security money, which is not enough to finance such expensive undertaking. This meant that she was to either weather the summer heat at her home or move to a nursing home for the summer in order to avoid the risk of a heatstroke attack. According to her nurses, she had previously been admitted for a heatstroke attack. This way, it was risky for her to live at her home without a working cooling system.
Although young people can survive the hot Nevada summer, the heat is quite dangerous to the elderly. The difference is based on the inability of seniors’ bodies to adapt quickly to change in temperature. This problem is caused by chronic medical conditions that are common among older people.
The charity work by Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber saw Jean’s trailer being fitted with modern air-conditioners, new wiring and ultramodern plumbing system. More importantly, Goettl went a further step to ensure that the new ACs were custom made for the home. This means that Jean will enjoy cooler summers and warmers winters.
Ken Goodrich, the owner of both companies, believes that businesspersons have the responsibility to look after their communities. Helping the less fortunate in the society does not only improve the business’ image in the community, but also promotes it. Besides, helping people is satisfying.
About Goettl Air Conditioning
In 1939, Gust and Adam Goettl founded Goettl Air Conditioning. The company was moved to Las Vegas Valley in 1968. It operated in the area for four decades before it was forced out by the recession in 2007. It has since returned to Las Vegas. The company specializes in making and selling of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. They also provide installation, maintenance and repair services to their products.

The Importance Of Online Reputation Management

A recent article in Forbes gave tips brand managers can use to control online reputation management ( It explained what people can do to prevent online reputation problems and repair them when they occur. It also pointed out the folly of ignoring a negative online reputation and how it can impact a company’s bottom line. One company mentioned lost $2 million in sales in one year because of a poor online Reputation Defender.
Don’t Ignore It

Businesses ignore poor online reputations at their own peril. Instead they should investigate and address the issue causing the hit to their reputation. They should also check on their online reputation regularly to ensure there aren’t a preponderance of negative statements about the company. At the very least they should put a positive message out online. Reputations take years to build and can be ruined if negative statements are allowed to hold sway.

Be Proactive

Properly vet top-level executives before hiring them. Seek to hire only executives with strong personal reputations. They have the best chance of being perceived as industry experts and thought leaders. This can help assure customers and potential investors your company is in good hands and on the right track and attract positive media attention.

An Ongoing Process

A company’s reputation can take a hit and head into a downward spiral in the blink of an eye. Brand managers should be constantly putting out positive stories about the activities of the companies for which they work. This can help to create and maintain positive online reputations for those companies.

Have A Plan

Every company has issues from time to time. The ones that are usually able to overcome them quickly and save their reputations are usually the companies that have a crisis intervention plan in place. That plan should involve using every online platform to which the company has access to get a positive perspective. A quick response can often counteract a negative rumor before it spreads..

4. Hire A Professional

The cost of a negative online reputation is higher than hiring a pro to create and maintain a positive one.

Adam Goldenberg Uses Great Decision Making To Build Clothing Membership Company

It looks like for LA CEO wunderkind, Adam Goldenberg, has yet another success with his latest business venture. That company is JustFab and it has seen some great growth since it was first founded by Goldenberg and his partners in 2010. The company has been a success for a couple reasons. The first being the innovative business model and the second being the practical knowledge and expertise that the founder brings to running the business.

In 2010, Goldenberg saw the success that VIP membership shopping companies were having. He thought “why couldn’t that work in the fashion industry?”. That’s what led him to found the company JustFab at JustFab is a VIP membership company that is dedicated to bringing its customers great deals on clothing and fashion accessories.

Members of the company’s service pay a membership fee. This payment can be made monthly or on a yearly basis. It is whatever is best for the customers. Sometimes the membership can be more affordable if it is all bought at once and paid for on a yearly basis. Members of the website will receive huge discounts on different fashion items. Adam Goldenberg has partnered with a lot of popular brands to make the company’s services very desirable for just about any consumer. The ingenious business model of JustFab is the cornerstone of its success. The company couples its great sales with some top-notch funding. The company on raised over 50 million in revenue last year alone. The success can also be attributed to the experience of its founder as well.

Adam Goldenberg has used that experience to guide his actions more than ever. He understands that importance of metrics more than ever after learning and growing from his past two successful companies. He has the intelligence to know when to stick with a product that is working. He also has the wisdom and lack of ego to abandon a product or idea that he may have had if it is not performing as well as he had hoped that it would. This is a skill that a lot of young CEOs have not yet developed.

Adam Goldenberg cultivated these skills through his last two successes. The first was the gaming network “Gamer’s Alliance”. This was his first notable company. He built it and sold it in 1999 before starting the brand incubator “Intelligent Beauty”. He ran the brand incubator until 2010 when he founded the clothing membership company.

Recent Events with Laidlaw Shed Light on Some Important Issues

An associated injunction against an investment bank might not seem like a news story that would be especially gripping. But the case in question actually sheds a lot of light on how some very important industries function. On one side is Laidlaw & Company, a high profile investment bank. And on the other is Relmada Therapeutics, a clinical-stage company which specializes in treatments for chronic pain.

I never really gave much thought into how medical companies fund their research. But looking into the case I was struck by just how difficult it must be to get vitally important medications to market. I also became quite aware of how complex these situations can be. That might well be the reason why the court issued a temporary restraining order and associated injunction against Laidlaw and Company. This was in response to allegations from Relmada that Laidlaw had been intentionally spreading false and misleading proxy materials. It’d be quite easy for people to form the wrong opinion about a case which involves so many complex and confusing pieces of information.

Personally, I decided that if I wanted to understand the case than it’d call for additional information about Laidlaw. Their own website provides a wealth of succent material about both the company and the people who work there. One item that I found particularly noteworthy was just how successful Laidlaw is. I hadn’t heard of them before, but they seem to be one of the major players in the investment sector. They’ve been in business for over a hundred years now. And during that time Laidlaw has been able to expand into the international market.

A company that successful is obviously doing something right. But I felt that it was best to look at the senior executives within the company rather than at distant history. It was easy enough to find information about Matthew Eitner and James on Laidlaw’s website. This, in turn, told me something very important about the company. The fact that both men had a brief biography on the site meant that they took some pride in associating their name with the company. This is especially important given that both men are also heavily involved with charitable projects and community efforts. Specifics of the case aside, they have an impressive history of good works and professional victories. Having good people at the top says a lot of positive things about any company.
