_DSC0059_resizeDennis Wong and his sister are the co-founders of YOR Health, a nutritional products company that has improved the health of numerous Americans. YOR Health is just the latest in a series of successful business ventures for Dennis Wong. Dennis Wong of YOR Health describes the unlikely journey of his carefully assembled team as they attained their goals in the nutritional products world.

Q: How did the story of YOR Health begin?

Dennis Wong: A friend and mentor from China was essential in providing expertise and invaluable advice.

Q: What industry did he recommend becoming involved in?

Dennis Wong: This mentor was supportive in the establishment of a real estate development firm and general contracting company.

Q: What was the name of this company?

Dennis Wong: The company was called Vision Builders. It served the Los Angeles area for 11 years.

Q: How was this success attained?

Dennis Wong: The team positioned itself to purchase substantial amounts of foreclosure properties from the banks when the real estate market crashed.

Q: Why not stay in this field?

Dennis Wong: As the real estate market began to suffer in the United States, the China real estate market was exploding. Therefore, investments were redirected to China.

Q: What types of business trends were prevalent at the time?

Dennis Wong: There was a new trend emerging that involved reselling long distance.

Q: What developed from following this new trend?

Dennis Wong: A telephone company of which I was a part in China grew revenues by more than 150 percent due to the team’s efforts.

Q: How was this knowledge applied to other projects?

Dennis Wong: Eventually the team taught the new corporate management team of this company how to rebuild an effective infrastructure, which completely revolutionized their business operations.

Q:  What circumstances contributed to this success?

Dennis Wong: Through the core value of relationships the company was revitalized.

Q: What was the core mission of all businesses improved by the team?

Dennis Wong: The emphasis was on building great relationships, which is imperative for long lasting business.

Q: What happened next?

Dennis Wong: By 2000, the long distance industry had run its course. The decision was made to open our own network marketing company to take advantage of another trend: the Internet boom.

Q: What did the company offer?

Dennis Wong: From 2000-2007 this network marketing company offered various Internet products and services such as web hosting, email services, e-commerce shopping, dial-up Internet service and voice over Internet service.

Q: What partnerships were established from this new company?

Dennis Wong: In 2005, the company held contracts with a few of the largest voice over Internet providers and had a larger reselling territory footprint than Vonage.

Q: What areas were included in this coverage?

Dennis Wong: The company covered most of North America, while Vonage only covered the United States. However in 2007, the company’s monopoly in the voice over Internet industry began to fizzle out.

Q: What was learned from this shift?

Dennis Wong: We determined that these products and services were just not sustainable. The one sustainable aspect is the sales team, so then the focus shifted toward new products in the marketplace.

Q: Why do these team members succeed?

Dennis Wong: They prevail because of the incredible support among all team members and the feeling that they are valued as members of our family.

Q: How will YOR Health progress in the future?

Dennis Wong: The company is firmly entrenched in this new expanding industry as far as network marketing. The innovative products of YOR Health are all presented from this unique marketing platform.

In today’s one on one chat with the staff of Presentation Solutions, Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento based financial consultant, speaks of planning early and alleviating boredom after leaving your Nine to Five.

Presentation Solutions: Thanks for joining us today. Retirement is a hot issue. What do you say to young folks just starting their career that haven’t gone grey enough to think about planning ahead just yet?

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: I tell them to start now. And I always means now as in right now.

Presentation Solutions: So, the sooner you begin to build a nest egg, the better? Why not wait until you have extra money to save?

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: If you wait until you think you have the extra money, you never will. Start now! By putting away even a small percentage, you will help cushion your golden years.

Presentation Solutions: We understand that you say there are four main stages to retirement. What are they?

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: Pre-retirement, early retirement, full retirement, and final retirement.

Presentation Solutions: Can you go into detail a bit about each stage?

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: Pre-retirement is essentially the planning stages. This is when you decide what you want to do and how much you will need to do it.

Presentation Solutions: Leading to early retirement…

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: This initial active retirement stage is when people are the most active. This is the part of retirement that should be the most enjoyable…it can also be the most expensive depending on how long you are able to get up and go. Many new retirees get bored. I recommend a part time job during this stage to not only supplement savings but to also help ward off boredom.

Presentation Solutions: So, early retirement is different from full retirement?

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: In my book, yes it is. Full retirement is the relaxing stage. You are still able to take care of yourself but do so at a slower pace. This is the time to get out and meet other people of a certain age to enjoy the local scene…a social group, a book club, that sort of thing.

Presentation Solutions: Which brings us to final retirement.

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: This is commonly the part when health and mobility become an issue. Most adults at this time begin to really think about either moving in with family or entering an assisted are facility.

Presentation Solutions: So, how hard is it to plan for retirement?

Dennis Dachtler, Sacramento Wealth Planner: It can be tough for many Americans. Stocks, bonds, insurance…it can be confusing. I definitely recommend using the services of an experienced retirement planner like Dachtler Wealth Management to help organize and manage your assets.
