Goettl Air Conditioning Repairmen is on the march towards generating a tremendous amount of revenue thanks to owner Ken Goodrich. Goettl had been in business for decades, but was not really experiencing much growth until Goodrich bought the company in the final month of 2012. Goodrich made a host of business decisions designed to get Goettl back on the right track. If the current revenues figures are any indication of success, this is a massively successful business.
Revenue figures for 2014 reveal the company generated $20 million. That is a $9 million increase over the $11 million earned in 2012.
None of the company’s turnaround of good fortune was accidental. There were a number of critical steps Goodrich took to ensure the company would get on the right fiscal track once again.
Ken Goodrich has discussed the extremely negative effect competitors and their criticism had on the company before he took charge of it. The specifics of the criticism are not the main issue here. The most serious issue of concern is the massive impact the criticism had on the company. Goettl was knocked off course as the company was not able to function effectively when competitors put on the pressure. Goodrich suggested all criticism should be taken seriously, but no one in business should ever be paralyzed by criticism. Under Goodrich’s leadership, the company was able to deal with drama instigated by competitors and address things in a better way.
Goodrich also made major changes in the personnel. Numerous terminations were made and new people who shared Goodrich’s vision were brought on to manage the new direction of the company. Goettl’s staff has expanded to 84 employees and there are almost 60 vehicles comprising the current fleet.
The sheer volume of changes performed when new management took over may surprise many. The alterations were vast and extensive. The information technology (IT) changes alone were incredible in scope.
The new name of the company help rebrand the enterprise in the marketplace. The first inception of Goettl was launched in 1939 and was a a family business. Over the years, there have been many changes to the company and the air conditioning industry. The current incarnation handles residential and commercial companies and repairs HVAC, heating, and air conditioning systems. Other services are offered including a special maintenance program.
Look for even more changes for the better from the new Ken Goodrich version of Goettl.
Healthy Living was served with a lawsuit in federal court by Nutrimost. The lawsuit state Healthy Living stole a promotional video Nutrimost was using on their website. The video appeared on the Healthy Living website can’tlosediet.com, with only a slight change.
The video on Healthy Living’s website contained customer testimonials by the Nutrimost System, and also one by the author of the diet, Dr. Ray Wisniewski. References to Nutrimost were removed, and replaced with “Can’t Lose Diet”.
Both videos make identical claims about the program. One is that you can lose 25 to 45 pounds of weight in 40 days without the use of exercise, and you will never feel hungry. In addition, you will never need to use harmful drugs, hormones, or undergo any type of surgery.
A cease and desist order was received by the rival company, but the video was still being shown, although the length of the video was shortened down from the original version. The website has not shown the video since.
Nutrimost wants the courts to bar Healthy Living from ever showing the video again, and in addition they want over $300,000 in damages to the company. The damages are for loss of “reputation and goodwill”.

British millionaire Sanjay Shah, founder of Solo Capital, is the epitome of the final transformation of Dickens’ famous Ebenezer Scrooge. While Mr. Shah may never have been referred to as miserly it is his giving nature that would have Dickens proclaiming him as a “blessing.” As a young lad growing up in London Sanjay had many opportunities and decided to study medicine at prestigious King’s College. After determining that the medical field was not his calling Mr. Shah planted himself in the financial world. It was during his time as an accountant for such successful companies as Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley that Mr. Shah came to the realization that there had to be more to life than the simple work-week schedule. Not wanting to waste any of his personal time he decided to start his own brokerage firm. He invested his own money in a small rental property and hired a small workforce, thus starting Solo Capital. Today, Solo Capital retains thousands of employees and is arguably one of the premiere international boutique financial services companies in the world. Solo Capital is well known for their work in proprietary trading, professional sports investments, and financial consulting.
While he has enjoyed extreme success with Solo Capital, Mr. Sanjay Shah also owns more than three dozen other businesses across London, Dubai, and other parts of the world. His success has not hindered his desire to help others. Mr. Shah is noted for his philanthropic endeavors. He has supported Plan International for over ten years and is highly involved in helping those less fortunate than himself. Perhaps it is the fact that he has faced personal adversity that strengthened his desire to help others.
His youngest son was two years old when Mr. Shah and his wife received the news that he suffered from autism. This lead Mr. Shah to the decision that, based on his position, he needed to become more involved in the research and understanding of autism. He created the organization, Autism Rocks, which partners with musicians in order to bring public awareness to the disorder. In June of 2015 he invested $100,000 of his own money to purchase the domain Autism.Rocks. Both he and his wife continue to support this and other charitable organizations around the globe.
Avi Weisfogel has started a GoFundMe campaign to support Operation Smile. He has set a goal of $2,000 to give to the organization. The desire of the organization is to provide surgical procedures for children at no cost. The hope is to also offer services to young adults who have issues with the mouth, such as cleft lips or cleft palate.
Recently, Avi took part in an interview where he shared his thoughts about the program. He believes that each child should be able to have access to the dental care that is needed. Children should have hope regardless of whether the family can pay for the surgery needed or not. Avi has a passion for helping children, which is why he started the campaign for Operation Smile. The program works hand in hand with hospitals and doctors to determine the best plan of attack when it comes to surgery. The organization wants to find as many children as possible and offer the help that they need. Mission work is done around the world. At times, medical equipment might need to be purchased or transported to another country so that a doctor can use it for patients. The money raised will go to this endeavor.
Avi Weisfogel has a background in sleep treatment and sleep disorders. His dental practice is called Old Bridge Dental CAre. The New Jersey community has recognized him as “Best Dentist” for several years.
Along with his dental work, Avi conducts lectures about sleep disorders. Dental Sleep Masters was founded in 2014 as a way for dentists to help those who have sleeping disorders by placing dental appliances in the mouth. He believes in helping all patients get the sleep that is needed so that they can have a functional life while also helping with their dental needs.
