The plan gave users 1 GB of 4G data and reduced the speed to 3G after that amount has been used. It also beefed up its smart phone lineup to include the Samsung Victory and Galaxy S3 and S4. In January, FreedomPop launched a new global hotspot and SIM that offers free data in 25 countries and plans to expand its coverage to an additional 40 countries before the end of the year.

The new global plan allows users 200 MB of data and charges $10 for an additional 500 MB. The new global plan can be use with any connected device or smart phone as well. The global hotspot is currently priced at $49.99 and will eventually cost $99.99. The global SIM is only $10 and will be updated remotely as new countries are added. FreedomPop aggregated cellular networks around the world allows users a seamless single data connection.

The team honors the work done by the Navy SEALS and raises money for the Navy SEAL Foundation.

Andy Wirth was instrumental in combining Squaw Valley with the adjacent ski facility, Alpine Meadows, into a combined mega-ski resort connected by a new gondola that allows skiers from Squaw Valley to ski the trails at Alpine Meadows and vice-versa. Along the way Wirth spearheaded an opposition drive to incorporate the ski area that would have taken control away from Wirth and the ski area itself.

Andy Wirth recently was appointed to the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board. His immersion into the tourist industry in this piece of paradise is complete and you can be certain that he will continue to tirelessly work toward the betterment of the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows areas. We only hope he limits his skydiving.

Marc Sparks Advice For Entrepreneurs

If an individual went through a lot of struggles as they were progressing through their life, he or she will want to pass on wisdom to others going through similar trials. There is much that can be done to avert struggles.

A man who suffered embarrassment while dating or in some other context in high school may want his son to avoid that, so he will share his wisdom. In his page, Marc Sparks has done something similar. Since he has gone through a lot throughout the course of his journey (as narrated in his book They Can’t Eat You), he actively labors to share his wisdom with people who are going through something similar. In this article Sparks shared a bit of his wisdom so that young entrepreneurs would be able to take steps toward success.


If we apply ourselves, we can accomplish anything. Marc Sparks believes that the key to success is internal rather than external. It is about focusing one’s mind and inclining oneself to achieve what he or she has always wanted to.

The reason that people fail is that they give in to a negative mental disposition, which informs them that they will fail and that they should quit. But Sparks believes that focus is the key to success and through that, one can accomplish anything.


Communication is central to everything that we do. If you are going into a job interview, you need to be able to relay to the potential employer the reasons that you would be an ideal candidate.

Even if you do have strong skills in your industry, you will not succeed if you cannot communicate those skills to other people. An unskilled person can even convince a potential employer to hire them on the basis of their communication skills. A proper presentation can define success. Sparks believes that there are three ingredients to a good presentation. Read more: Marc Sparks – President @ Timber Creek Capital and Spark Tank DFW

A Real Story Theories will only get us so far. Rather than focusing on what might work, Sparks believes that it is important to focus on what has worked. That is what captivates an audience.

Good Images It can be easy to zone out during a presentation. People often have a very short attention span when reading a big blog of text or listening to somebody drone on for a long time. An well-constructed image will keep the attention of the audience.

Simplicity You have a lot of knowledge.

But technical jargon can be overbearing. Explain it in simple terms. Use The Team Everybody on your team has different skills. Bring them in to the presentation so that the audience can see what everybody is contributing.
