Business, Inspirational Women

Only people with high principles can maintain extraordinary moral standards without getting themselves compromised by the social rot around them. Doing the right thing is often imbedded into everyone’s body of knowledge. However, very few people conduct their affairs by the book. People who previously upheld high moral value often drop their guard and entangle themselves in shady dealings more so if they are in the financial world.

Helane Morrison has defied common perception that to make it one has to get involved in corruption. From the early stages of her career in journalism and public service, Helane tirelessly worked to eradicate corruption and protect potential victims. The financial world is renowned for its dirty deeds but Helene is playing an important role in exposing crooked stockbrokers. This has made her a significant, influential and powerful figure in compliance for almost three decades. She has no plans to slow down any time soon but hopes to continue exposing shady dealers.

Business, Politics

The DeVos family is lining up behind Marco Rubio as a republican presidential candidate. They have given Rubio an endorsement coupled with financial assistance. The decision to back Rubio came after the dropping out of Jeb Bush. They are now doing whatever they can to help Marco Rubio to gain some momentum in the race. They do trust that Rubio will do what he is supposed to do in order to gain an advantage in the race. For one thing, the DeVos family is very involved in Republican politics. 

Dick DeVos is one of the sons of Richard DeVos Sr. He has worked in the Amway Corporation starting in 1974. The company distributes personal care products and health products through various dealers. At some point, Dick left the company to start a new business according to his LinkedIn resume. In the early 90s he began the management of the NBA team, Orlando Magic. He has returned to Amway in 1993 to serve as the President of the company. He was also involved in Amway Corporation’s restructuring (source: http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2010/09/amway_heir_dick_and_betsy_devo.html).

In 2006, DeVos has gotten involved in politics when he ran for Governor of Michigan state as a republican. He ran with the use of his own finances. Dick and his family have personally known the candidate that they are currently backing since 2006 when the candidate Marco Rubio was pushing for the expansion of choice laws for schools. This has resulted in better education for children. 

Dick and Betsy give to education, community initiatives and many more causes through their family foundation. Their philanthropic endeavors are focused mainly in Michigan, but they are dedicated to improving education across America.

Betsy shares her approach for creating more quality educational opportunities for children in Detroit.
