Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water will be the first bottled water brand to use a fully degradable plastic bottle. The company announced that its new one hundred percent recyclable bottles will be launched sometime this year. The technology behind the new plastic bottles will help the speed up its degrading process to fifteen years, as oppose to regular bottles that could take over a thousand years to fully break down. Waiakea Water is hopeful that many other companies that use plastics will tag along and utilize this nano-degradable plastic technology and helpsave the environment.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is an American bottled water company that was founded on June 1, 2012 by CEO Ryan Emmons. Ryan Emmons created the Hawaii volcanic water brand after vacationing at his Uncle’s home in Oahu, Hawaii and tasting the naturally filtered water from his well. He wanted to find a way to share this pristine water with everyone in the world and after a few years, Waiakea Water was launched and was the first premium water brand of its kind.
Waiakea Water’s main source comes from therain and snowmelt that courses through the gorgeous snow-capped peak of Mauna Loa, an active volcano that’s located on the biggest island of Hawaii. The naturally filtered water carries natural alkaline that provides theWaiakea Water pH with high levels ranging from 7 to 8.8. The premium water tastes smooth and is filled with essential nutrients and electrolytes that helps promote energy and other benefits.
After teaming up with the charitable and ethical organization Pump Aid, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was able to donate 650 liters of clean water for every liter sold to many rural regions of Malawi. Pump Aid is well-known for their contributions to the African nation and has installed many wells and ‘Elephant Pumps‘ across every rural part in Africa. As of 2016, Waiakea and Pump Aid had donated over 500 million liters of clean drinking water to Malawi.
Talk Fusion was born after a house tour by its founder, Bob Reina, during which he attempted to email video content to his family and the service provider did not allow it. This served as the “light bulb” moment and he immediately called an IT expert friend of his to develop the idea. Much to their fortune, this idea and its subsequent business, not only were great, but they came about at the right time to spell success; it experienced swift growth because of the fail safe formula of encountering a problem and finding its solution better than the rest.
At first, customer attraction came by way of Reina’s previous experience. In the world of network marketing, it is common and well advised to speak to people one already knows and have a business relationship with. Specifically, speak to them about business in terms of the potential benefits. This was the very strategy Bob applied, coupled with spreading the word to everyone else he knew, whether these were individuals involved in the network marketing industry or not.
The company has developed a number of products that have focused on providing pure results with a humanistic touch; Bob is passionate about helping others and believes in giving back. The marketing strategy is based on direct selling, another area in which Reina is well versed. So much so, that Talk Fusion’s products have reached more than 140 countries.
As for the future of Talk Fusion, it looks bright. As an innovative company and one in constant evolution, it remains on top of all the changes that happen in the world. It is a leader and trendsetter in its industry and it is currently working on an educational platform called Talk Fusion University. Its goal is to provide associates the knowledge they need to elevate their business and procure further success.
Bob Reina is a graduate of the University of South Florida and a former police officer who graduated at the top of his police academy class. He worked as a part-time direct selling associate, an industry which helped him obtain two decades of experience he greatly benefited from. Experience has taught him that success requires commitment over many years. Learn more: https://twitter.com/bobreina
His days start at 5:30 a.m. when he checks his emails and arranges the day’s activities. He arrives at the office by 8:30 to find a team already working toward the next big idea that will contribute to the continued realization of the company’s vision. His own schedule is full from the beginning of the day until the very end, sometimes later than that. He makes it a point to never slow down because of the importance of leading by example.
In Mexico, it has been nearly 80 years since they allowed any kind of foreign company to invest and own oil projects on their land. The 1938 political rule made it so Pemex was the only company allowed to drill and extract the precious earthly liquid. However, things have changed. With the international shakeup of the economy of virtually every country on earth in 2008, even Mexico started to look outside of its borders to find a solution.
That solution, it turns out, materialized in a competitive bidding process in 2015 when many companies put their name in the hat to have the rights to a profitable oil well off the coast of Tabasco. The well, estimated to hold anywhere from 100 million to 500 million barrels of oil, is said to have a high chance of success by industry experts.
The three companies, Premier Oil (London), Sierra Oil and Gas (Mexico), and Talos Energy (Houston) will have almost equal shares in the project, with the bulk going to the Mexican company. While Mexico will receive most of the benefit, it is a far cry from the past where Pemex dominated the market. Talos will operate the well, taking over the bulk of the responsibility for day to day management.
Talos Energy is a Houston based oil and gas company with a fast growing and exciting history. It was started from the ashes of success with Phoenix holdings, their parent company, putting $600 million into it. They quickly grew from a small office of about 10 employees all the way up to 120 in record time thanks to quick thinking and a marketing plan by management.
Instead of the usual perks like casual Fridays in the office, Talos gives their employees something else to be excited about. They all have profit sharing. That means even the scientists working in wells and analyzing samples will get a percentage of the revenue of the company. The team works hard but is rewarded as a result. 16,000 barrels of oil are pumped daily by the firm, who operates mainly off the coast of Texas and Mexico.
There are a lot of interesting tidbits about Bob Reina on the Internet, but one of the most interesting is the fact he is a former police officer. Because of this, he has a certain quality about him as the CEO and founder of Talk Fusion. Talk Fusion is a video communications service with video newsletters, video emails, video conferences, and video chats. These are all set up for people that are looking to do things differently in their lives, much like Bob Reina himself. Bob Reina was a police officer, but he saw that he could do something else with his life. He saw he could make a difference in a wider arena.
As everyone knows, 2007 was the year when technology really took off and really went to the next level. It has only grown since then and become even more remarkable than most people probably ever imagined. These days, I imagine most people don’t know how they would live without it. It is such a part of their life and it is such a part of the way they communicate. Bob Reina is showing people it can also be used to chat with other people and it can be used to really get someone’s name out there if they are looking to get into business for themselves. That is the ultimate dream for many people.
Let’s call a spade a spade: who wants to work for someone else? Unless someone loves their boss, which is rare, they want to be the person calling the shots. They want to be the person in control of what happens in their life. They don’t want someone to write their own story for them. They want be the one behind the pen. When they write their life story and they talk about how they started up their own business, they will remember the time they were first introduced to Talk Fusion.
It was one of those experiences they won’t soon forget. Bob Reina started this company for a reason and the reason was to change the game and change lives.
