Everyone has a chance to achieve a lot and make a huge difference in life. There are a lot of factors that go into how much one can achieve. Among the factors are the associations of the individual in question. If one associates with people that are about building and achieving goals, then she is going to improve on her chances of achieving a lot throughout her career. She is also more likely going to be admired and respected as a person if she associates with the right people. Fortunately for Betsy DeVos, she has found herself with the right people in her life so that she could achieve a lot in her career.
One person that she is involved with is her husband Dick DeVos. Dick himself is an achiever. He has been the leader of many different companies which included his father’s company, Amway. He has also been involved in philanthropy and charitable giving. This has brought forth an example to Betsy DeVos. She has followed in the footsteps of her husband and has joined leadership roles in other companies as well. She herself has developed a passion for helping out the unfortunate children of poor communities.
Both Betsy and Divk DeVos work together to run their nonprofit foundation in order to support different schools in the communities that they are involved in. One of the most important goals that Betsy has achieved was bringing forth the chance for children to get their education in the safest possible environment. One of the issues that she has seen is that children were assigned schools based on their district. This has resulted in a lot of children missing out on higher quality education. Even with high quality education, the stresses of the poor community can take away from the energy one needs to be able to apply himself to the classes that he is taking.
Betsy DeVos is using her influence to bring about greater education in the lives of children so that they can do everything they can in order to build their own lives and make sure that they are able to provide their children with a better life.
