George Soros was originally born in Hungary and migrated to the USA seek greener pastures. As a young man he had grandiose dreams to make it big. He realized as while still young that money made the world go round and he sought to make as much of it as possible. This attitude is what has worked for him so well. George Soros New York hedge fund manager is arguably one of the most politically powerful individuals on earth. He has extensively used his resources to shape the political landscapes of several countries including the United States. He has managed to topple some dictatorial regimes that have continually oppressed its citizenry. He is currently known to affect American politics in more profound ways than any living person.

Soros influence can be tied to his personal fortune amounting to $13 and another $25 in Investment in assets. His firm Soros Fund Management is one of the most successful hedge funds in Wall Street. In his book The Alchemy of Finance, Soros views himself as a self important personality by even comparing himself to renowned Economist John Maynard keynes. Despite his high regard for himself, Soros is a soft man at heart. He is considered one of the most philanthropic persons in the country. Through his Open Society Foundations, he has provided funding to non-profit and human rights organizations to further his cause for a democratic and socially equal society. The Open Society Foundations are set up in several countries around the world and are not limited to the United States.

Soros has had critical reviews of oppressive regimes and most accurately George bush. He was against Bush’s administration on foreign policy. The 9/11 attacks was a confirmation by Soros of the deteriorating foreign policy and soros called out the president. Soros claimed that Bush was the very definition of all that was evil and he didn’t have the ideals of democracy and human rights at heart. He sensationally claimed that terrorism was at large a consequence of economic sabotage and exploitation of poor countries by wealthier counterparts. Soros aim was to improve the social conditions of people around the world and push governments redistribute wealth. He called on rich countries to provide international assistance to the less developed ones. This was in line with his agenda for the world.

Healthy Spirit, Healthy Body: The Joseph Bismark Way

I thought it was funny to see a businessman primarily described as being interested in a healthy lifestyle. Health is Joseph Bismark’s way of life, as described in the blog Left Handed, Right Mind.” But for Bismark, health doesn’t just mean eating your vegetables and exercising; he is concerned about the health of the spirit, too, and the health of the planet. The company for which he is the managing director is called the Qi Group, and it encourages the use of materials recycling, solar power, and paperless workflows. 

Bismark learned about the importance of being healthy in his body and mind when he spent several years in an ashram in the Philippines. He decided to leave the ashram to bring his values to the world of business. I think it is very important for businessmen to love wellness, and not just to focus on money all of the time.

Bismark is a dynamic leader and believes strongly in encouraging teamwork, creativity, and entrepreneurship in his employees. He thinks that everyone can do great things. These values have led to success for his company. He is also affiliated with the RYTHM Foundation, which gives back to the community. 

We need more business leaders to be inspiring examples of humanity. We need them to care about the health of human beings’ bodies and spirits, as well as the health of our world. Joseph Bismark’s commitment to health is therefore an inspiration to many.

After four years of being in active business, the company merged with US Interactive LLC in the year 1998. His love for technology and solving social problems was already evident in the first two companies he formed and that is why opportunities and more challenging ones kept knocking on his door.

This man proceeded to be part of the team that established Starbright World which was a company that dealt exclusively with chronically ill children.
