José Manuel González Believes Government Policy Is Too Important To Be Left To Politicians

José Manuel González has been in a battle to save the economy of Venezuela for the last three years. His mission to rid the government of excessive spending and political corruption started after Chavez died in 2013. Chavez spent billions of dollars on social programs, and he helped millions of Venezuelans get out of poverty and function as middle-class citizens. In the process of giving the people more educational opportunities and government programs, Chavez borrowed billions of dollars from countries around the globe. Venezuela is rich in oil reserves, so when crude was selling for more than $100 a barrel, Venezuela had good credit. But that good credit stopped when the bottom fell out of the oil market, and President Nicolas Maduro took over the socialist government. Maduro was handpicked by Chavez, and José Manuel González thinks that choice was a bad one for several reasons.

Although Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world, the people of Venezuela are starving. There aren’t enough food, electricity or medical supplies, and gangs are fighting in the streets to claim what little there is of those commodities. José Manuel González is an agricultural entrepreneur, and he is also the Deputy of the National Assembly in the state of Guárico. González has watched the Maduro government enact policies that have turned the country into a nation filled with domestic issues. In meetings, González expressed his concerns about the Maduro government and José is now considered the opposition by the government. José accepts that title. He is pushing the petition to form a referendum to remove Maduro from office. Almost a million people have signed the petition, according to José, but four million signatures are needed to put the referendum in place.

Venezuela needs another government that is more democratic in nature, according to José Manuel González. The socialist government of Maduro isn’t working and according to the opposition, it will never work. Maduro, the former truck driver, turned politician, doesn’t understand what it takes to run a company, and that is why José Manuel González says government policy is too important to be left to politicians.

Diversant: The Company That Thinks Outside the Box

In today’s business world, you have to stand out and make a difference at the same time. If you look and sound like every other company, how is anyone going to notice you or pay attention to you? Why should they care? With Diversant, they are about as different as they come, and that is what separates them from the competition. They talk on their website about “bringing thought leadership, experience, and passion.” Quite frankly, I don’t think you could find three more important things in a business landscape. They all work hand-in-hand and one doesn’t work without the other.

With leadership, you bring a powerful voice. It means you are willing to make tough decisions, stand up for yourself, and lead a group of individuals. You aren’t afraid of anything and nothing is too challenging or overwhelming for you. You take it on, head first, and don’t shy away from it. You embrace the challenge. You also lead a group of men and women and try to get the best results you can out of them. You work with them, teach them, and truly care about their growth, because you know that their growth is going to lead to the growth of the company.

With experience, it means you have been there and done that. You have seen it all, done it all, and experienced highs and lows. You have not been afraid of them, and you have lived to tell about them. Maybe you have been in a tough situation, but it hasn’t scared you or scarred for you for life. Lastly, there is passion, and without passion, why do you do your job and why do you get up in the morning?

These all traits that John Goullet brings to the table as part of the advisory and leadership board of Diversant. He is also an entrepreneur, which means he knows all about being a leader and starting something up and watching it build. He has brought all of this to Diversant and they are proud to have him on board, just as he is proud to be a part of such a great company.

Brian Torchin: A Drive to Help Guided His Success

Most people know Brian Torchin as the head of HCRC Staffing or as a gifted health care professional. While Torchin is proud of his work as a health care professional, or the leader of HCRC Staffing, it does not define him. Torchin is better defined by what has driven him to accomplish what he has done in his life.

Torchin has had a keen interest in helping people, which drove him into the health care industry. He started with a natural drive to help, which he demonstrated as a child. But he mostly focused on education to ensure that he could help as much as possible. Torchin got great grades that were enough to get him accepted at the New York Chiropractic College. Torchin got his degree there, though that was not enough for him because he also got a bachelor’s in Exercise Science from the University of Delaware.

Torchin worked as a chiropractor for a few years where he was revered as a great chiropractor to the community and gained their trust. Needless to say, he was a hit as a chiropractor. This was easy for him because he got to help people, which is what he wanted to do. But he also began to see a few issues in the medical industry first hand. Torchin understood that many medical establishments have to deal with staff shortages from time to time. These shortages disrupt the practice, and it was something that Torchin wanted to help with, but he was not sure how to do so.

Torchin tried his hand at sports as he thought of how he could help his fellow medical practitioners. He gathered more and more support and contacts when he finally thought of HCRC Staffing. This was to be a focused staffing center that would help medical practitioners ensure they are always staffed with qualified candidates. Torchin would deal with all the background checks and experience checks before his team sent a new candidate to a health care provider.

So, yes, Torchin should be known for some of his accomplishments, but the truth is that this man has only been driven by his drive to help patients and colleagues.  Check out his job listings on
