Sergey Petrossov might be one of the youngest entrepreneurs in the world; however, he is far from inexperienced. He is the founder and CEO of a company called JetSmarter. This company has quickly caused a tremendous upheaval in the world of private jet travel. This company has changed the way people book a seat on a private plane. In addition to taking a bite out of the private travel world, he also has the goal of disrupting the commercial travel industry as well. In the past, private jet travel was something reserved for the ultra-wealthy. Sergey Petrossov does not see any reason why this trend can’t change. As his company has gotten going, the average price of a seat on a private plane has dropped. Soon, the price might be comparable to that of commercial travel.
Sergey Petrossov was surprised at how hard it was to book a seat on a private plane. In the past, someone had to physically call someone and sign physical papers. Instead, he decided to change the way this process was carried out. He designed an app that people could use to book a private flight from their phone. With the push of a button, someone could be on their way in the luxury of a private jet. Now, more people use this process than ever before. This means that private jets are also being used more often than before. The result has been a precipitous drop in the price of a private flight.
As a result, more people are electing to go with this travel method. This new, streamlined process has made private jet travel accessible to more people than ever before. Sergey Petrossov has become a major player in the private travel industry. He has his sights set on the commercial travel industry next. It will be exciting to watch this company continue to grow and develop.
Sudhir Choudhrie is a popular Indian billionaire with investments in India, London, and other parts of the world. His business interests lie in the field of aviation, hotel and hospitality, healthcare, and arms trading. His massive success stemmed from his humble beginnings. His father died when he was young, so he was raised along by his hardworking mother. She because his role model and inspiration, so he really pushed himself to excel. After earning his bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Delhi, he chose not join the his grandpa’s real estate business. Instead he decided to set out on his own.
Sudhir Choudhrie started his trading business by buying television equipment from the UK then selling those to the government of his country to help their growing television network. From this, he was able to grow his business and expand from importing to exporting of consumer goods, including farm equipment, under his own Magnum International Trading company. One of his main focal points then was the Soviet Union, because they were then India’s largest trading partner. Aside from that, he moved on to establish an investment company called Alpha C&C Group, which to this day has been serving the industry for over 30 years. His illustrious career achievements include being the director of the chartered airline corporations: the Deccan Aviation Ltd and Kingfisher Airlines.
Sudhir Choudhrie also became a non-executive director of Ebookers, a travel website and for a time, he served as Latvia’s Honorary Consul General to India. Because of all his exemplary achievements, Theresa May awarded him the “Asian Business Lifetime Achievement Year Award 2013”. Apart from his business interests, Sudhir Choudhrie is involved in politics. He is a long term supporter and donor of the UK Liberal Democrats. He has been supporting the party since 2004, making donations worth in multi-millions of British pounds from his personal pockets.

One of the most unfair things in America is that college players don’t get paid. Colleges earn billions of dollars from their contracts with TV networks. They then pay the coach like $5 million for sitting on the sidelines. The college players who do most of the work on the field and at a practice get nothing. Kevin Plan, the Chief Executive Officer of Under Armour, also thinks that this unfair.
Kevin Plank believes that a college athlete should get some sort of financial compensation for their name, likeness, or image. They should get paid for marketing and they should be able to get sponsorship deals.
Kevin Plank does not think that it is a fair system. College teams are making a ton of profit. The fact that college athletes cannot participate in making more profit for the college is completely hypocritical. Most major colleges $2 partnerships with companies like Under Armour already. For example, Under Armour has a contract with UCLA for 15 years that is worth $280 million. All the money from the contract will go to UCLA’s athletic program. The athletes will get better facilities and services, but they will not get one nickel of the $280 million.
Essentially, college athletes play for free. Professional athletes can have huge salaries with very generous bonuses and frills. When student-athletes play for a university or college, they cannot get any sort of compensation due to NCAA guidelines. This system has been around for decades.
Is this system fair? According to Kevin Plank, it is not fair.
JD.com is taking a stab at procurement with its latest retail channel. The channel is called JD Business and allows a procurement supplier and contractors to sell their wares to JD’s impressive community of consumers. As Jingdong serves 300 million people the saturation JD Business creates is more than fair. JD.com is also known for its transparency which saves companies time as they know the best quality services offered are trustworthy.
Procurement is the often ignored aspect of running a new business that ironically is one of the most important things a company has to do. It is the task of supplying a business with all the odds and ends it needs to run. Procurement also involves finding contractors to handle simple and complex repairs. Without out procurement employees do not have the supplies they need and the building itself can fall into disrepair. The only drawback to procurement is that it is a tedious exercise. It can also cost a pretty penny.
According to JD Business hopes to neutralize that by not only saving time but money in the procurement process. The channel will help companies find the right suppliers to meet their specific needs. JD Business is another wing of JD.com’s impressive Retail as a Service project. As with JD Chain and JD Open Source, it focuses on using JD’s infrastructure to help businesses operate. Instead of software, however, JD Business will focus on hardware. By inserting itself as the middleman the company gives other businesses a leg up in their procurement needs and once again optimizes effeciency.

Bhanu Choudhrie has learned competition is key in life and in the business world. Why? Because competition compels action. Competition makes one think about why one is better and would make them to become better if they want to survive. See, competition provides one with an impetus to act and improve in their business and in their overall life as well.
What Were the Recent Issues That Pushed Microsoft Back in the Race?
The past few years of tumultuous decisions by Microsoft, Bhanu Choudhrie has seen, that in the face of massive competition allude towards that past period with Gates, where the company had to put out fires and prove its mettle against large scale competitors left, right and center. Bhanu Choudhrie has seen that some of these issues had been enough for people to turn towards Apple as their primary solution provider, leaving Microsoft far behind in the race to be number one.
A few of such problems from the past two decades that immediately come to mind include but are not limited to:
Microsoft Windows ME and Windows 8
Microsoft Windows Phone
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Bhanu Choudhrie and Microsoft Windows OS
It would be quite ungrateful to say anything bad about the Windows operating system, the OS that changed the way we used computers forever. At the same time, it would be quite ignorant not to point out the glaring issues that offerings such as Windows Me (Millennium Edition – also candidly called the “Mistake Edition”), and Windows 8 brought to the table for their users.
Packed with limited features, problematic restrictions, and bugged execution, these two OS in particular created a bunch of problems for their users. While Windows Me is famous for removing access to DOS, creating issues with a successful enterprise execution, and making older programs incompatible; Windows 8 became known for its bugged performance and choppy execution. These problems had been enough for Windows users to switch to best Apple products, and stay with the newer company as its loyal customers even its solutions seemed pricier beyond any reason they could have imagined.
