We are living in a world where being an entrepreneur is something to be embraced, no longer wined at. Entrepreneurs for a long time have been the miniature backbones that have kept our economy constantly growing. However, despite how successful entrepreneurs can be nowadays it still isn’t an easy job. Just ask Status Labs CEO Darius Fisher. Fisher has been an integral part of the digital reputation and management world for the better part of the last three years. Now he is sitting down and talking about what makes him tick.
If you ever get a chance to sit down and talk to Darius Fisher you’ll immediately come to the realization that he is a focused individual, ready to bring his company to the next level. Asked what made the biggest difference in his entrepreneur based life he answered that it was focusing on “the direct line to the money”. Fisher’s favorite book is “How to Win Friends and Influence People” and he is a firm believer in the power of a prepared individual. Though Fisher can spout off every entrepreneur platitude in the book, he also lives by the words.
From 2012 to 2015 Fisher observed and helped partake in over a 1,000% increase in terms of growth from his company, Status Labs. During this period of time Status Labs went from being a moderately successful PR firm to becoming one of the most active companies in the industry. Based out of Austin, Texas we have seen Status Labs get embraced by their local community. Status Labs is now opening up offices around the globe, bringing on more clients than ever.
Fisher is as much a part of Status Labs’ success as his employees. He has been a steady hand on the steering wheel for a company that is navigating some mysterious waters: places where companies like his have never been. As more and more people turn to Status Labs for their PR management ability we expect the company to explode more in growth, leading Fisher to become something of a household name for entrepreneurs and those who follow them.
I’ve taken a very proactive approach on saving money. The very first thing that had to be cut out of my life was my cell phone bill. I was paying for my service along with the service for my daughter, but the bills were getting to be too much. I could live without a cell phone, but my daughter acted like it was the end of the world when I shut her phone off. I realized after having an emergency and no cell phone that having a phone was very important.
I got some information about FreedomPop when I read through a recent review that was done about their services, and I was elated to learn that they have free cell phone service. I also found out about their unlimited cell phone service for under $20, so I came up with a plan. I would get the free service for myself and get the unlimited service for my daughter. I knew that I only needed my cell phone to make important calls, especially making calls to emergency services, but I believe that my daughter would talk on her phone too much and run up our bills again, so the unlimited service was best for her.
It was easy for us to sign up for the service because I did it on the FreedomPop website. I also was able to order sim cards for both of our phones, and I only paid $10 total for the cards. We got the sim cards in the mail in less than a week, and my daughter barely turned her phone on before she started using it and making phone calls as if she was missing something so important. I have 200 minutes of talk time that I get to use for free with my service, which suits me just fine.
I also have text messages and data, so I’m not missing anything by using the free service that FreedomPop is offering me. I never worry that my daughter will use too many text messages or minutes because they are unlimited, and she mostly uses Wi-Fi at home, so her data isn’t a problem either. FreedomPop has made it possible for me and my daughter to get cell phone service for under $20 a month for the both of us, and I don’t know any other wireless carrier that could do that. FreedomPop has awesome services at awesome prices!

Securus Technologies has implemented important changes in prison communications. One important aspect of prison life is the continued contact by the prisoner with friends and family. When a person is convicted of a crime, they must pay a price for their actions. Usually, they are incarcerated in federal or state facilities that are often great distances from their hometowns. The burden of visitation had been placed upon the family and friends of the person convicted, and they had to travel long distances to stay in touch with the person serving time. This was expensive and time consuming not to mention dehumanizing to be subjected to full body searches and the prison atmosphere.
Developments in social media and the internet, and put in place by Securus Technologies has changed this. Now friends and family can stay in contact with those incarcerated thanks to video and audio communication services provided by Securus Technologies. A phone call, with video added, takes the place of an expensive visit to a prison facility. In the case of this example in the Vimeo video, the toddler would have a difficult time traveling and visiting her father in the prison facility far from home. This new technology helps all members of this family and other friends and family of those serving out their sentences waiting for the time when they can return to society.
Securus Technologies, founded in 1986, is based in Dallas. The company employs more than 1000 with contracts in 2600 correctional facilities in the United States of America.
A recent Vimeo video using the technologies in place by Securus shows an inmate father talking with his toddler in the comfort of the family home. This connection is vital for inmates to maintain with family members as a part of the rehabilitation process.
Thanks to Securus Technologies communication can now take place under more pleasant conditions. The inmate has a reason to behave responsibly in order to receive this special privilege of communication with home, friends, and family. Prison guards applaud the program as well. It is a time-saving process that allows the prison staff to have more time to perform remedial work on the prisoner.
This Vimeo video tears at our heartstrings to see this separation, but our hearts are warmed by the process that allows for this type of tender communication. Watch the short Vimeo video here: Securus Video Visitation – Kids
