Lake Tahoe Sking and Olympic Valley Incorporation Struggle

The beautiful mountains and countryside of Lake Tahoe house some extraordinarily exquisite fun ski resorts and slopes. People from all over the world enjoy making their plans to come ski and snuggle in Tahoe. Each of the resorts offers quaint fireplaces and extremely breathtaking views.

Snow blankets the mountains yearly and offers sports enthusiasts the thrills of racing down on skis, snowboards, boogie boards, tubes, and snow machines. In most years past, the ski resorts were lucky enough to get the snow they needed to support the tourist. In the recent years when snow was scarce, the ski resorts suffered revenue loss.

The CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, Andy Wirth, helped the community and resorts by helping to repair and rebuild the reputation and marketing for the area. Andy was deeply involved in the Olympic Valley incorporation efforts. He met with the groups of investors and helped to rebuild the area without the incorporation.

Andy Wirth has been working with the resorts for over 25 years. He was born in Germany and moved to the states to attend Colorado State University. After completing college in Colorado Andy went on to Scotland to complete his education in business. Marketing is one thing Andy handles really well. He is previously working with the Reno Airport to help them entice tourism to Nevada and to Tahoe again. Managing a global marketing firm helped him to increase his experience and knowledge in advertising.

Andy enjoys sports and Skydiving. His wife and he reside in Truckee California.

After a recent skydiving accident, Andy took on the efforts to raise money for the wounded warrior project and the Navy Seal foundation. He is always large in the community and willing to step up to help anytime he is needed. He spent time as a backcountry park ranger.

His wilderness training took place in the San Pedro Parks. Working in the state park gave Andy Wirth the desire to pursue a career out in the open country. He has made a wonderful career with the ski resort.

When you visit Nevada you will see many different types of cultures and people. The streets are full of Casinos where gambling and nightlife provide employment and fun for many.

Casinos are just a few of the things one can do for fun in Nevada. The lakes and rivers are numerous. The small towns like Virginia city are full of history and fun. Good food and entertainment are important in Nevada.

The drive up to Lake Tahoe is beautiful. The tall trees are breathtaking. The snow covered mountains blanket California and Nevada together. Lake Tahoe is the center of a truly remarkable landscape that anyone will love to visit. Make sure to visit the area and read the article on Andy Wirth in the Reno Gazette-Journal.

Andy Wirth’s Love for Squaw Valley

Recently in the Auburn Journal, the journal did a cover story on the success of resorts and the very few that remain open for years. One of the most successful resorts in the United States is the Squaw Valley Ski Resort which is currently owned by Andy Wirth, a businessman and a lover of nature.

Squaw Valley is world renowned for its quality terrain and the fact that it once hosted the Winter Olympics. In current times, Squaw Valley is Mr. Wirth’s current project that he is working on with the purpose of remodeling it and improving the structure. Andy Wirth has already invested $70 million into renovation for the purpose of making it more appealing to customers in this competitive market.

Located in Northern California, this ski resort has continued to remain competitive with more and more customers traveling to this ski resort year round. Andy Wirth, as an individual, has continued to improve the ski resort within the help of his community located all around the resort.

The community of Squaw Valley have come together with Andy Wirth to have over 500 meetings for the purpose of thinking of new ways to improve the ski resort without negatively affecting his community. In addition to this, Mr. Wirth and his neighbors have thought of ways to also reduce the overall impact to the environment as a result of more foot traffic and remodeling. The solutions that the community came up with ask for not only new investments, but also new ideas.

The community outreach is one of the many reasons as to why Andy Wirth has remained a successful business owner. His goal with expanding and improving his resort has been to spark economic growth and wealth within the community and to offer more jobs to individuals looking for work.

This new and improved resort has made a promise to now promote year round activities as well as environmental stewardship. Since the project was first introduced, it has been announced that the project has been reduced in size by over 50 percent to the original plan to be constructed on over 82 acres of land.

A Company that Really Helps Others Helps Itself

Qnet is a company that is committed to charitable causes. This organization has been around since the late 90s. Co-founders Vijay Eswaran and Joseph Bismark quickly discovered that the best way to stay relevant and profitable is by helping other people with their problems. This company goes out of its way to ensure that people have what they need when they discover a need.

Many companies give to charities. It is a part of their corporate responsibility. This is nothing new. However, Qnet takes the philosophy of helping people to another level. They have a philosophy that demonstrates how much they care for people. When they see charitable organizations that address specific causes they join in and give a helping hand.

The products that Qnet makes are also created with helping in mind. Since this company wants to help people with their health; they refuse to sell any products that will cause their body harm. They only sell products that are life affirming and none that promote disease. The vegan lifestyle is important for Qnet and having animal based substances in their products is not the way they do business. If they sell a consumer a product that could damage their health; then that would undermining Qnet’s core values.

The leadership of Qnet really believes in the philosophy that if you want to better yourself; you have to better those around you. In other words, you must help people to be at their best if you want to experience the same success. This philosophy is one reason as to why Qnet is such a profitable organization. They help to endorse and support people in need directly and through the products they sell. Many people in Asia like this company and are loyal customers because of what they stand for.

Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off

Andy Warhol, in his book “The Philosophy of Andy Warhol,” once talked about how he loved it when he realized he was in a rut; even going so far as to say that his friends would call him up and wish him well on enjoying his rut. There has been a discussion in the press about the pleasures of just “staying in,” dispensing with the business of setting up a time to meet, and enjoying a night at home. To some degree this is probably an inevitable sea change–a return to what was once the cultural norm after broadcast media became commonplace; however, now that we have so many options in and out of the home the decision is definitely more one of choice than necessity.

Speculation in the article brings up the social media options we now have, which begs the question: “Are we ever really alone?” Cultivating extensive media contacts means that, almost inevitably, someone is going to be around. An article in the “New York Times Style Magazine” asks the same question. While acknowledging that dogged alone time is not the best human life stratagem—substitute “mandatory” for “dogged” and people might start throwing phrases like “cruel and inhumane” around—it is noted that binge-watching “Orange is the New Black” may rank pretty high if you’re looking for a low-risk option for passing the evening. Also being discussed is the notion that right now there is a meme which puts a value on the trait of being an introvert.

Regardless of your plans for the evening, or your personality type, JustFab is a great website for the latest in knockout fashion. Every month they offer something new that will make your evening dazzle.

After signing up to be a JustFab VIP member, you get 20 percent off of your first purchase. Every month you get a new selection of clothes to choose from. If you don’t want to buy anything that month, simply log online between the 1st and the 5th and indicate that you want to skip that month.

Handybook is the Cleaning App You Deserve

We are living in the unbridled age of digital connection where people are expected to be able to connect with anyone, anywhere, at anytime. This has obviously led to a social evolution, but it is also changing the way that we approach even the most menial of tasks. Handybook, developed by Oisin Hanrahan, is the big new application that is making your life easier and you don’t even know it. Focused on connecting people who need services with people who offer services, Handybook has quickly found a niche to exploit and they are doing it with gusto.

Oisin Hanrahan and partner Umang Dua have been working together since 2012 where they were students at Harvard Business school. As roommates the two wanted to push their extra time together toward brainstorming for the game changing business idea. Looking around their apartment, which was littered with unfinished furniture being put together, they had their big eureka moment: home cleaning services. Getting to work right away the pair were soon deep in the throes of developing the Handybook that has become so popular to so many people nowadays.

Handybook is so simple in its concept that it almost belies the eye test. Essentially Hanrahan and Dua created an app that connects the suppliers with those that need a job supplied. At its core, Handybook couldn’t be more simple and perhaps that is why they’ve found attaining funding to be a simple process. Simple is the name of the game for Handybook and fans of the service will quickly tell you that.

Right now the application is running out of 13 major cities in North America with their biggest focus being on markets like Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, and Boston. According to Hanrahan’s numbers they are moving more than 10,000 total jobs per month between freelancers and those that need their services. The most common job requested involves house cleaning but there has been a renewed focus on getting more jobs in the mix for people to request. Freelancers are heavily screened and the app is secure, making it the golden haven for people who need work done.
