Dick DeVos: Someone Who Has Made Plenty of Steps

As someone who is trying to be an entrepreneur, I am looking for examples of success. Among the examples of success I see is Dick DeVos. He is someone that has worked plenty of different jobs and have taken on plenty of different high end opportunities. He has also made some wise investments of his time and energy so that he can continue to bring his net worth to a higher level. His father has started up the company called Amway Corporation. Given that his father was a very successful businessman, this gave Dick the challenge of rising from the shadow of his father in order to become his own man with his own legacy.

Dick has managed to run a full successful career. Among the activities he has been involved in was being the owner of the Orlando Magic franchise. He has been appointed by his father to manage the franchise. At the same time, he was involved with the Windquest Group as a manager. This is a lot of responsibility to take on for a businessman. Dick DeVos is also father and a husband.

Above all, Dick DeVos is a philanthropist. He has a foundation which helps children get the education they need. He runs this foundation with his wife. It is called the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation. One thing that Dick believes in is the value of education when it comes to either maintaining or even improving one’s circumstances. He is also someone who appreciates the efforts that people make in order to reach higher levels of success beyond what they can do working a dead-end job.
