High Five For Autism Rocks!

Sanjay Shah is an aspiring and talented musician, He is a British Millionaire and a philanthropist. But most importantly he is a father. But not just any father, he is a father of an amazing boy who just happens to have autism. Sanjay Shah with such great passion and love for his son created a Go Fund Me account called Autism Rocks to not only raise money by rubbing elbows with famous and well loved musicians and actors by performing concerts and prodigious private events for the cause but also to raise awareness about autism. All proceeds are given to Autism Research Trust (ART) who then supports the incredible Autism Research Centre (ARC) based at Cambridge University. The great thing about what Sanjay Shah is doing is he is bringing attention to the fact that autism doesn’t need a cure but rather for people to be more understanding and educated on what the cause of autism is and how it effects each individual. The Go Fund Me campaign Autism Rocks is a force to be reckoned with as the mastermind behind the campaign works on getting the word out there in a way that most everyone can understand and that is through music. This is a man who adores his son and cares for his fellow man, He has been in magazines, in the news and in the spotlight for years as a humanitarian and a sponsor of children in India and is now using his knowledge and his reputation to help those who cannot always speak for themselves. The children and adults with autism. His 4 year old son Nikhil is helping to pave the way to a better more positive perception of autism. The Autism Rocks Campaign will hopefully raise the money necessary to help in the research and study on what autism is, what we need to understand about the condition and also how to help parents, families and doctors to treat the symptom’s of autism and help provide a long and wonderful life for those who are affected by autism.

It is vital that he gets his message out, so that he may funnel whatever resources in his possession to the relief fund that he has pledged himself to aid. He does not believe in complacency, and his business success is a testament to that fact.

Where There’s a Need, There’s a Fixer

A person’s reputation can make or break him. The preconceived notions the general public formulates prior to actually meeting someone has a gigantic impact upon every single dealing we, as humans, have with one another. While the internet has brought us the power to research a person to our fingertips, it also has brought us the ability to form these notions, quite possibly, in a biased manner that could be detrimental to a generally good person.

How does this happen? Google search engines pull up information in a chronological order, with the most recent first. If the most recent thing happening in a philanthropists life is the arrest of a drunken relative, her efforts to get a new project to, say, fund a girls’ school in Africa, could be severely impacted in a negative manner.

There is no need to despair. There are people in this world who specialize in fixing those dinks and dents in a person’s public persona in order to get the positive vibes flowing again. These “fixers” are highly specialized public relations people who work through various social media outlets and Google search numbers to put out the positive on a person.

One example of this is a company called Status Labs. Status Labs, headed by president and co-founder Darius Fisher, works exclusively to revive the seemingly dead public online profiles of various individuals involved in politics, showbiz, and high profile businesses. His business is handling digital marketing and online reputation management in addition to the usual public relation functions. Darius Fisher is well versed in making a client’s search results work for the client and the client’s business.

Fisher’s Status Labs has grown in the four years since its founding to a staff of 30. Status Labs has offices in multiple cities and has a wide range of clients running the gamut from athletes, politicians, Fortune 500 brands, CEOs, and many more. In this day and age of information, it is good to know there are people out there working in the trenches to balance the information so the good doesn’t get lost in the bad. These “fixers” help to keep things fair and business flowing.
