In this life, where fortunes are not served on a silver plate, having a relentless attitude and never giving up is the secret to great accomplishments. While there are a handful of millionaires out there who have risen from dust to grace; only very few of them have had the opportunity of being millionaires twice. Nick Vertucci is cut from a different cloth and his implacable attitude has propelled him to great success in his life as a family man and as an investor.
Nick Vertucci began his grind immediately after high school and at a point found himself living in his van. Nevertheless, he started selling computer parts and other technology utilities. He showed a knack for business and a strong passion for improving his life and that of his family. Within a short time, Vertucci was dancing in the millionaire club thanks to the booming tech industry in the late 90s.
However, his dance was cut short in the wake of the 21st century during the internet bubble. Vertucci was one of the many people at that time who found themselves on the losing end of the internet stock plunge in the 2000s. This was a tough time for Nick and his family as he struggled to make ends meet as he had lost everything of value. His house was the only asset of value and he would sell it in an attempt to get out of debts.
It is already hard enough to make your first million, but losing it and having to start from the drawing board again is essentially selling snow in hell. Nick Vertucci was in this dilemma and he says this was the toughest time of his life. Vertucci is a man of steel; he did not let his situation run the show. He made many attempts to get back to winning ways to no avail until a friend of him introduced him to a real estate seminar. This was his silver lining and Vertucci being an intelligent man did not let this opportunity pass.
Luckily it would be the sector that he would find his bearing again and he experienced loads of success in the real estate business. He has made massive fortunes in the real estate business and now Nick has found it noble to encourage others in the taxing journey of investing and the road to success. He recently published his new book; Seven Figure Decisions: Having the Balls to Succeed. In his book, he shares his steps to success which he hopes will guide others too. He outlines his four steps to real estate breakthrough, as Seeing It, Believing It, Mapping It and Executing It.

This year, OSI Group celebrates 100 years of continuous growth since its establishment. The company management reckons how the food and meat processing and distribution company metamorphosed from a butcher shop down the street into a global conglomerate. The company takes stock of the strides it has had to take in its journey to establishing a foothold in the leader’s list for the global food industry with over 20,000 employees scattered in 65 facilities across 17 countries to thank. And while hitting such milestones hasn’t always been easy, OSI Group made through it all.
A promising start
The Aurora-based OSI Group traces its roots to Oak Park Chicago where it first opened doors to the surrounding community in 1909 as a butcher shop under the leadership of Kolschowsky. Due to unquestionable business ethics and an economic boom at the time, the small retail meat shop experienced rapid growth that saw to venture into the wholesale market. By the turn of a decade, the business rebranded into Otto & Sons and continued to operate under this brand until Sheldon Lavin took over its leadership prompting the change of name to OSI Group.
Like most companies, OSI foods has had to bear the brunt of the economy time and again, some of which threatened its very existence. Others caused stalls and glitches in operation that have in several cases led to missed business opportunities whose impacts could have changed the course of the company.

For instance, the company missed the opportunity of becoming McDonald’s sole supplier of fresh ground meat when the company first started. The financial strains the company was experiencing at the time limited its production capacity thus making it unable to meet McDonald’s supply demands.
Devastated by this turn of events, Otto’s sons brought in Sheldon Lavin as the company’s chief financial officer, and his revolutionary financing strategies helped dispel doom in the company. Sheldon later invested in the company, gaining a controlling share that resulted in a partnership with Otto’s sons and the renaming of the meat processor to OSI Group.
Capitalizing on innovative technology and strategies
Upon assuming office, Sheldon sought to investigate the biggest crippling the growth opportunities for the company despite its long years of service. At this time, poor strategy and redundant technology kept coming up as key inhibitions. To address this Sheldon steered the company towards the adoption of new and innovative technology for use within their processing facilities. He also adopted a change of growth strategy where the company now concentrates more on the acquisition of existing brands as opposed to building new facilities when it comes to expanding global operations.
