Betsy DeVos: What You See Is Not Always What You Get

On any given day one might encounter different versions of the Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Actually, she would probably argue that she is not the one who has changed. She would say that really it is the perspective of different people that consistently changes about her. She has not been able to maintain a single point of view on what she is and how she operates. A lot of the different perspectives have to do with the nature in which people know DeVos.

 

A Personable And Kind Individual

 

Friends and those who have known Betsy DeVos for some time always say that she is a very polite and personable individual. They say that she is pleasant to have a conversation with, and they argue that the way that she is shown in the media is not fair to the image of the person that they know. Many express great admiration towards this woman.

 

A lot of the reason why some may feel that Betsy DeVos is getting the short end of the media stick so to speak is because they know of the charitable work that she and her husband have done. They know that they lobbied against a multi-sports complex in Grand Rapids in favor of more economically beneficial spending in the city. They know that she was successful in doing that, and they want others to understand this complex character as well.

 

A Ruthless Political Scrapper

 

Another way to view Betsy DeVos is as a ruthless political scrapper. This is the view that her opponents tend to have of her more often than not. It is not without merit that she has earned this reputation. The reality is, she is persistent when it comes to getting the kind of accomplishments that she wants out of her political work. If this means that she has to step on a few people to get to the finish line, then so be it.

 

Many have seen her steady climb into the position of being the Secretary of Education for the entire country as nothing more but a sure sign that she is the kind of person who will get what she wants no matter what it takes. Perhaps that view is correct, but there is definitely room for interpretation no matter which side you are on.

 

Betsy DeVos will remain an interesting and complex character in American politics and beyond. You must decide for yourself exactly how to view this imperfect individual and just see how it all plays out in the end. She is going to have a lot of influence on the educational policies of the country for some time to come no matter how you look at it.

OSI Group: Its Small Beginning Didn’t Hinder Its Massive Growth

The saying “a big shot is a small shot that keeps shooting” has become real for OSI Group. How something ends matters most than how it began. No one would have thought that the small meat market Otto Kolschowsky started would shake the food industry someday. One may not understand how a small butcher shop would grow into a huge food processing firm. When someone has a vision for something, they know it would be fulfilled one day even though it may tarry for a while. Otto left Europe for the United States and started the small family business in Chicago, Illinois, two weeks after his arrival.

The company grew and became a wholesale depot. Otto decided to rebrand his family business after assessing exponential growth curve. Ray Kroc offered Otto’s business an opportunity to supply its products to his big restaurant. Although most people didn’t understand much about business franchising in the twentieth century, Ray Kroc kept the vision in mind. The McDonald’s supply chain transformed OSI Group and its activities. OSI came up with strategic practices that other restaurants and businesses have also used to transform their business activities. As a diligent producer of meat products, OSI has won several prestigious medals from great countries like the United Kingdom, Austria, Poland, and Germany.

The presence of OSI Group in the food industry is large, and this has helped it to maintain a constant supply of quality services and products. It has also helped it to make its prices affordable to its clients. With the increasing demand for the company’s products, the company is striving to come up with the best operations. OSI has some strategies that help it reduce food preparation time and keep the safety standards always high. Most customers enjoy the myriad of food choices OSI has since they suit all taste palettes.

The joint ventures OSI Group has with the processing plants, warehouses, poultry facilities, and farms have earned the company tremendous success. OSI is keen on the quality of its food products and the delivery of these products to the clients. Besides being a top food supplier in North America, OSI has also become a global solution to most food-related needs. The company has secured solid markets for food products in Asia, Europe, and Australia among other countries. Anyone who understands the market scope of this company today and how it started would highly understand the power that lies in the humble beginnings.
