Vijay Eswaran Says That Students Should Focus On Being Job Creators

Technical institutions and universities should teach graduates to become job creators. Vijay Eswaran contends that after graduating from college, most people seek for jobs instead of creating one.

He points out at the many tech graduates who have remained jobless despite of having the technical skills that they can use to create opportunities that could create jobs not only for them, but also to other graduates and members of the society. He encourages job seekers to apply for opportunities that match their qualifications.

This strategy will enhance their chances of securing job opportunities and eliminating the needs for making hundreds of job applications. Vijay Eswaran is the executive chairman of QI Group, a conglomerate company that is based in Hong Kong. Read more: Executive Chairman of QI Group Vijay Eswaran Talks Business and Philanthropy

Vijay notes that many tech graduates are reluctant to take risks and venture out on their own. This is because they have inadequate business skills. Eswaran is urging institutions to come up with programs and courses that would inspire these graduates to take risks and create employment opportunities in the society.

The entrepreneur adds that many graduates are conservative thinkers. This way, they are ready to work for other people. These potential jobs creators end up wasting a lot of time before they are confident enough to venture out on their own. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran:

With the ever-increasing presence of artificial intelligence in devices and equipment, automation, and robotic technology, job opportunities have continued to dwindle.

Moreover, the world’s population is continuing to grow. This way, there is an increase in the number of qualified people who are seeking for job every day. The executive leader was speaking during a student forum held at Universiti Malaya.

In addition, Vijay Eswaran talked about the different mentality among job seekers. In China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea, job seekers are willing to first work for other people to gain experience. Later, they come out of employment and become their own bosses while creating employment opportunities for other graduates.

Vijay contends that tech graduates should analyze the pros and cons of both approaches and decide on the ideal options. With a settled mind, individuals are able to channel their energies and establish themselves in the industry. Moreover, Vijay Eswaran talked about the ever-increasing competition between startups in the field.

Goettl Air Conditiioning Comes Back From Adversity

Goettl Air Conditioning was first established in 1932 by brothers Adam and Gust Goettl. Their enterprise was the first to bring the evaporative cooling system and refrigerated air conditioning to the marketplace. Obviously when these two technologies were made available it changed the lifestyle of thousands of desert dwellers.

Goettl has helped and serviced five generations of families over the years and they have especially prided themselves on the fine customer service that has been their trademark as well as fair pricing.

In the late nineties Goettl was purchased by a large national management company and things began to go downhill right away. It was just that the day-to-day items that need local attention were not able to be practiced in the normal way. The large management firm also spent more time counting their money than they did addressing customer service needs.

The employees of Goettl became frustrated because there were not the means to offer the quality of service that had previously been the norm, and they began to wonder about their future with the company too.

In 2013, Ken Goodrich purchased Goettl and it was one of those “finally something can be done” situations. Goodrich has spent his entire business career bailing out companies who were in difficulty and then bringing them back to profitability.

Goodrich saw that there were little to nothing in the way of profits, and a very poor morale issue with employees. He immediately took action and scheduled visits individually with employees and customers. He implemented a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee program which covered everything the company sold, serviced or installed.

In addition there was a pending lawsuit due to prior shady business practices, and Goodrich had to settle that as well. Slowly, but surely Goodrich reinvigorated the company by getting the employees excited about where the company was headed. He emphasized that the focus would be on the customers and their situations and when that got into place, happy customers would equal higher revenues.

That very prophecy came to pass as the company currently enjoys annual revenues in excess of $50 million.

Another good strategic move was the acquisition of Southern California’s Walton’s Heating and Air. Walton’s, owned by Todd Longbrake focused primarily on the commercial HVAC area of the business promised to bring additional business from that area. Goettl had always been a residential heating and air company, and the two disciplines coming together proved to be a winning combination.

Finding Pitchers to Pitch Your way into the Fantasy Baseball Playoffs

The 2017 fantasy baseball season is winding down to the end. Potential playoff spots in your league are on the line. If you’re striving to earn one of those spots, pitching points may be what gives you an edge.



While there were some young, relatively unknown hurlers who have held their own thus far, when rosters expand on September 1st, a couple quality pitching starts could catapult you on a pathway to your fantasy league title.



Check Here First



6 weeks into the season, a few of young pitchers made the list as potential fantasy adds from the waiver wire. A couple have either faded from the scene, or been injured. Eddie Butler hasn’t proven rotation worthy for the Cubs, and Hansel Robles has been parked on the DL most of the second half.



Jose Urena and Luis Perdomo have put up fantasy worthy numbers, while being part of the rotation for the Marlins and Padres respectfully. Neither team is headed anywhere this post season, so look for both these pitchers to continue to get the nod every 5th day.



Perdomo sits with less than 5% average ownership, but has pitched at least 6 innings in six straight starts and seems to be getting stronger. Likewise, Urena has a string of quality starts racked since the all-star break, bar a thumping by the Dodgers on July 15th.



Only problem with Urena is he is no longer a fantasy secret, being owned in roughly half of the standard leagues. So, if you’re still staring at holes in your pitching staff, while trying to earn a playoff berth, which minor league pitchers could turn the tide in your favor?



Two Pitchers to Watch Closely


Wilmer Font – Clayton Kershaw is due to come off the shelfYu Darvish is on the DL

  • Wilmer Font – The LA Dodgers are steamrolling their way towards potentially a record-breaking season. However, their pitching staff is beginning to show signs of wear. Ace Clayton Kershaw is due to come off the shelf, and recent acquisition Yu Darvish is on the DL.


Alex Wood appears headed there as well. Brock Stewart is going to get the first shot at Darvish’s vacant rotation spot, but lurking at Oklahoma City is 27-year-old Venezuelan Wilmer Font. Font has the lowest ERA in the hitter happy Pacific Coast League.



However, the most astonishing stat for fantasy owners to consider is whopping 170 strikeouts in 128 innings. If Steward should stumble, or the Dodgers decide to rest their staff heading towards a run at the World Series, don’t be surprised if Font gets at least a couple trips to the hill in September.


experiencing concerning injury issues

  • Tom Eshelman – The Phillies have a staff of promising young pitchers who held their own most of the season. Vince Velasquez is one of those, but he is experiencing concerning injury issues.


If Philadelphia wants to dig into their minor league bag of prospects, Tom Eshelman is the next in line to fill a rotation spot. Eshelman started 5 games at AA before earning his way onto the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. At Lehigh, he’s nailed down 8 wins, by showing an impressive ability to keep runners from crossing the plate.



His strikeout numbers don’t jump off the stat page, but he also has handed out only 13 free passes in his 107 innings at AAA. If Eshelman can carry that command to the big league level, he could be a worth a flier when the Phillies fill out their expanded September roster.


Monitor all the potential call-ups before they happen, by checking in at That’s how you can adjust your MLB lineups before your competition and maybe steal your way into the league playoffs, or pull off the sleeper pickup of the year that sends you home with the hardware.

Goettl Air Acquires South California Based Walton’s Heating

Goettl Air Conditioning bought Walton’s Heating and Air in June 2017 in a deal whose financial details were not disclosed. HVAC company is family owned with its headquarters in Southern California. The deal is mutually beneficial for both companies. For Goettl Air, it allows them to start expanding into California and solidify their existing operations in Tucson, Las Vegas, and Phoenix. Walton’s Heating will on its part be able to expand way much further than its founder Todd Longbrake, by his admission, could have imagined it growing, or driven it to. Mr. Longbrake had expressed reservations towards the acquisition deal when it was first proposed in 2015. However, after he heard some very positive comments about Goettl Air and its founder Ken Goodrich, he had a change of heart and decided to give it a try. Since the deal was finalized in mid-2015, Todd Longbrake says that Walton’s Heating has grown tenfold.

Although the deal was completed two years ago in 2015, Ken Goodrich held off on announcing it till earlier this year because of some issues with the operations within Walton’s and some marketing complications. Now that all that has been sorted and the announcement has been made, it was also revealed that Todd Longbrake would be retained in the company in the fields of sales management and field supervision. Mr. Goodrich spoke highly of Mr. Longbrake’s work ethic and the ease with which he assimilated to the company culture of Goettl Air, factors which informed the decision to retain him within the enterprise. He also has extensive knowledge of the workings and operations of Walton’s Heating as well as the South Californian consumer market.

Goettl Air is a leader in the HVAC industry committed to offering customers with the best products and services to meet their needs. The company is based in Arizona, although it has recently taken measures to expand into the South Californian market with the acquisition of Walton’s Heating in 2015. Goettl Air was founded in Mansfield, Ohio in 1926 before relocating to Phoenix Arizona at the height of the great depression to seek better opportunities. Upon the relocation, Goettl Air became internationally recognized for their prowess in producing evaporative coolers and other innovative heating and cooling technologies en masse. So committed to innovation in this industry was Goettl Air that they were at one point the owners of over 100 patents. View the complete company profile on
