Doug Levitt is the person who created a project called the Greyhound Diaries. Seeking adventure and wanting to travel within his native United States, Doug Levitt embarked on a journey across the country by Greyhound Bus. The experiences and stories he compiled while traveling by Greyhound Bus culminated in a project that Doug Levitt named the Greyhound Diaries.
Mr. Levitt could very well afford to travel by airplane or car across the United States. However, Doug Levitt wanted to capture a very different side of America. There are millions of people struggling to get by. Many people cannot afford the luxury of airplane travel from one city to the next. The Greyhound Diaries tell the story of the forgotten person in the United States. It is the story of people who are not covered by the media or newspaper, but are out there among us.
Left with no other alternative, these forgotten people travel by bus across the country. The Greyhound Diaries describes the experiences Doug Levitt shared while he was in the shoes of such people. It is a project reminiscent of Great Depression era projects. Artists, writers and historians were hired by the federal government to document people’s hardships. The Greyhound Diary is similar to these programs. One major difference though, is that Doug Levitt financed the project on his own.
A Closer Look At The Greyhound Diaries
Greyhound buses run through corners of America that many airline carriers don’t go to. This allowed Doug Levitt to see hidden rural, urban and suburban areas of the country where most people don’t ever go. While traveling by bus, Doug realized a very important thing. People will naturally tend to see what they share in common. Instead of viewing each other as different and as rivals, traveling by bus had made Doug realize that we all share something in common.
Our current way of life though, makes it easy to forget what we share in common with others. The Greyhound Diaries describes this experience through journal entries, songs and poems. It is an artistic endeavor as well as a social endeavor about a forgotten class of people.

He is putting together a large book that is filled with a lot of stories from people that are struggling. He is doing this through his travels on the Greyhound Bus. He sits with people who are traveling with people and talks with them as they share their stories about their struggles. He gets to know where they come from and where they are going.
Doug Levitt himself is a writer, songwriter and singer. Among the things he plans to do with the stories he gets from the people that he talks to is to adapt them into songs as well as put them in his book. These stories that he is collecting are not just sad stories, but they are also very inspiring. For one thing, he is not just looking to show people in pain and needing help, he is looking to show people that are doing things about their circumstances. He is also looking to show that there is still hope for people in all circumstances.
The Greyhound Diaries are going to be filled with stories that warm harts and shed tears. With all of the inspiration that he is gonna get from people, maybe he could shake the people who are more fortunate out of apathy. One thing that he is trying to do is put a human face to the struggles of the world.

Highland Capital Assets is the industry leader in alternative credit methods for institutional investors, and arbitraging distressed assets. Highland’s investment advice combines macro-level economic forecasts and micro-level investment advice on loans.
Dondero’s credentials are impressive. Prior to founding PAMCO, which became Highland Capital Management, he raised over two billion dollars in returns for Protective Life Insurance Company, and began his career as an analyst in 1984. He graduated with honors from the University of Virginia, and in a career spanning thirty years, has been a pioneer in credit-oriented solutions and collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs).

Teaming up with Linda Owen, renowned for her leadership in the Dallas philanthropic community, James Dondero has brought her on to manage and execute on Highland Capital Management’s charitable giving programs as they expand and extend their reach. Owen will be the liaison between Highland Capital Management and the Dallas Foundation, which provides research and suggestions on ways for philanthropy to have the greatest impact in the local community.

Given Bob Reina’s knowledge of the industry, he knew just what the consumers needed. He provided those needs with Talk Fusion, a service for video chat. He has taken the time to develop this software program with multiple purposes. He is very confident in the ability of his invention to carry out those purposes. Bob Reina is confident and passionate because he has started from a vision. His vision was that of a more prosperous and well connected world. In pursuit of his vision, he did some research and learned all that he can about the industry so that he can build something that could bring a great advantage to entrepreneurs as well as others.
Bob Reina’s Talk Fusion is built to connect people together. In a world where people communicate mostly through text, people only experience a superficial form of connection. However, people who are on social media tend to feel a greater sense of isolation as opposed to people who take the time to actually connect with others. Fortunately, Talk Fusion changes that with video chat so that people can actually connect more deeply. They get to sit and talk to each other, see each other, and hear each other.
Talk Fusion is also powerful a marketing tool. Where a lot of internet marketers were stuck with using text in email marketing, Talk Fusion has opened up the potential to reach more customers with video marketing. Internet marketers are now able to use video in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of what they have to offer. With effective marketing, a business will grow. As a business grows, there will be room to hire more workers. Bob Reina wants to help people build and grow their business so that there will be more job opportunities. Talk Fusion gives business owners the edge that they need in order to pursue their goals.
