I want to be an Expert Fund Raiser to help the poor

I maybe an ex-bankrupt but I have managed to achieve a semi-retired lifestyle thru a strict system of financial goals which I will explain to you.  I have helped my ex-wife achieve financial freedom by getting insurance which she has received almost S$1,000,000 in payouts so I do not have to worry about supporting her and my children.  During my divorce I gave my half share of  my house to her and told her to rent out our HDB flat for regular payments of $2,500 to feed my children so I have the freedom not to worry about my family finances. Nobody has helped me even though my aunt is a millionaire and my mom has a rental HDB  which she derive rental income for her retirement, I never take a single cent from them. My brother has a doctorate and he is a lecturer in Nanyang Polytechnic but we could not get along because of her wife which is very money faced. My mom has invested more than S$50,000 for my brother to study in Australia and with his own inheritence of S$65,000, he totally spent all on his overseas education. I will depend on my own skillset of IT trainnng and the use of Internet and Social media to raise funds for the poor and help non profit organisation. Even though I have yet to achieve all my financial goals but along the way I know I will achieve them, it is only a matter of time. I am straight in line for my inheritence of a 4 rm HDB flat which my mother owns and when the right time comes I will have enough monies to do what I want to do. Even though because of my bankruptcy which was recently discharged nobody believes I could do it but I  have a system and knowledge how to achieve great amounts of monies, which I will only review when I achieve financial success. So now bear with me as I await all my financial goals and if you are able to help, donate some money thru paypal on my website so I am able to use it to help the poor and non profit organisation.

I do not believe living in a life of luxury and even when I achieve financial success, I will still stay in my 1 room rental flat and spent less than S$1k a month on food. I do not need a lot of monies to sustain myself even though Singapore is such an expensive place to stay.  My retirement plans is to accumulate at least S$1 million so I don’t have to worry about money when I  grow old.

And I will still achieve everything

KING OF EXPORTING SINGAPORE BRANDS OVERSEA
CONCEPTS OF THE 21ST CENTURY WHERE YOU CAN WORK ANYWHERE
 
Behind TCC is Thaksin who will take over (1)F & N, and S’pore Govt will takeover (2)MacDonald’s through a proxy. When (3)McCafe is listed with (4)(Dunking Donuts?), it will be as valuable as Google.through a proxy. 
And I will takeover Bidadari land without a single cent, if I am not accurate, I will pay you back every single cent you lose. 
 
CapitaLand earnings is chicken feed, with your capital, I can expand these ways. I will separate into REIT for Shopping Malls, Ascott for service apts, Hotel 81/Fragrance Hotel for franchise, and Lifestyle Brands for franchise. 
 
Next I will go after Hotel 81 or Fragrance Hotel and merge with (5)Han’s Restuarant to expand in SEA, franchise style. Ascott brand is more suitable for Europe. CapitaLand is going after those who’s value has been realised almost 85% and the margin is only 15%, I am building on at least a 60% profit when fully realised. Without even controlling the above, I would have already taken a controlling stake in VISA.
 
(6)A & W Restuarants selling HotDogs, Pasta and Pizza in SEA, franchise style.
 
(7)(Billy Bombers-I can always use another name) Restuarants concept similar to Hard Rock Cafe franchise, selling lifestyle food and alcoholic drinks 
 
(8)Singapore Food Alley(Foodcourt) concept, franchise style
 
And F & N is the supplier of my range of drinks in SEA, everything is interlinked, and I control most of the range of different types of restuarants worldwide, cash money everyday, recession proofed, targeting middle income families and very affordable, so I am so confident I do not worry about business everyday, under my umbrella “Lifestyle Brands Worldwide”, behind it a food research lab, and a design decoration & equipment outfitter for all my restuarants. And behind eveything is social media clubs, where members can subscribe to join activities and interests and get email addresses, everything IT technologies can offer. And non-profit organisations can also function this way.  
 
7-11 brand is valuable but profit margin is not suitable based on ROI, does not meet my target. Like Coke brand. Unless you want to sell to new markets like North Korea. Singtel is not valuable unless I complete all my projects in about 10 years time.

Smart Kitchen at MacDonald’s using Zwave Technology, Echelon is old technology

(San Jose, CA – July 10, 2007) – Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON), a leading provider of networking technology that is used to manage and reduce energy consumption, today announced that McDonald’s Corporation has chosen its LonWorks® technology to network its restaurant kitchen equipment in order to create the “kitchen of the future,” which aims to lower energy consumption and increase operational efficiency. McDonald’s is encouraging its kitchen equipment manufacturers to include Echelon’s power line technology in new equipment for its restaurants.
“We are committed to being a market leader in environmental responsibility and energy management, so it’s great to have a proven platform that we can use to address such an important issue,” said Bob Langert, McDonald’s vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility. “Echelon’s technology will also enable our franchisees to create restaurants that are easier to operate, facilitate preventive maintenance and provide new services while saving energy.”
McDonald’s is using Echelon’s power line networking technology to provide communication and data exchange between various pieces of kitchen equipment in its restaurants to allow the development of business process improvement applications, manage energy use, and reduce maintenance costs. This communication occurs over existing power lines, making for easy installation and retrofitting of equipment while enabling McDonald’s to install the equipment without tearing out walls. McDonald’s tested various alternative technologies, including radio frequency (RF), but found Echelon’s power line technology to be the most reliable and cost-effective solution.
Echelon’s i.LON® Internet Server will be used to collect data from McDonald’s kitchen equipment, reducing labor costs spent on gathering data and creating reports while reducing potential data compilation errors.
Food safety issues are a concern in the industry and smart equipment can provide the data needed to support Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) requirements of health departments. This will save labor costs now spent on reading thermometers and creating reports.
“Open, standards-based technologies are very important for McDonald’s because we believe the food service industry will follow suit and realize the benefits of networked equipment, including streamlined operations and energy reduction,” said Bernard Morauw, senior director, Worldwide Equipment Systems for McDonald’s Corp. “The LonWorks platform allows multiple manufacturers around the world to have clear open standards to provide integrated solutions to McDonald’s restaurants.”
The LonWorks enabled “smart kitchen” equipment could easily integrate with other existing or planned building sub-systems, such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and lighting systems that are also based on the LonWorks protocol, in order to extend energy management capabilities throughout the entire restaurant. Such measures are an element that can facilitate LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for the restaurants, and further reduce energy use.
“McDonald’s has always been a market leader at the forefront of innovation and we are pleased that Echelon’s technology is part of McDonald’s commitment to environmental leadership. By choosing a LonWorks solution, they are laying the foundation for ongoing energy savings for years to come,” said Ken Oshman, Echelon’s chairman and CEO. “LonWorks technology is a robust, future proof solution that will allow McDonald’s to continue to find new applications for improving business. The use of LonWorks technology by McDonald’s is a testament to its flexibility and reliability.”
About McDonald’s Corporation

We now have the technology to automate every single processes, from McDelivery to customised ipads that replace the POS system, one click payment via NFC within 10 seconds and the completion of order within 1 minute, by linking every single processes and routing the information to every station, via Zwave technology, every single equipment can be monitored for temperature and control, even lighting, aircon, staff management with automated accounting, stock taking and order and supply, creating enormous economies of scale and productivity, jobs for the biggest number of branches all over the world. I can triple MacDonald’s income by diversifying into the manufacture and maintainence of smart kitchenware. I can even spin off McCafe to the equivalent of StarBucks. My objectives is creating jobs for everyone, I have no interest in taking over MacDonalds.

Automatic processes to link everything in a typical MacDonald’s branch

Automatic processes to link everything in a typical MacDonald’s branch

1) POS System
It is possible to create applications to report sales and accounting automatically where there is an option to do time reporting 3 times a day  to the management or to login via Internet to do any tasks. Accounting processes can also be automated to create views so that if the management so wishes, a report can easily be generated within minutes, creating business intelligence to give insight to any branch.
2) Linking To McDelivery 
Whatever can be done on a POS system can easily be extended to McDelivery.
3) Using RF technology for automated order and stocktaking
Stocks can be updated in real time with a simple terminal like an iPad, where it is even possible to know everything in a cold store, a substation like a frying station or just plain packaging for all McDonald’s products. Once stocks run low, an application can easily be customised to make a new order from suppliers, it is possible then to use GPS location to find anything in a store in the main warehouse, so that supplies can easily be controlled, manufactured and delivered.
4) Temperature monitoring and control of kitchen appliances via Zwave Technology
Zwave technology uses a network mesh where it is possible to link every kitchen appliances to monitor temperature, conditions or completion of any processes. Once maintenance is required it could easily sent a message to the head office to dispatch the maintenance crew. As I mentioned earlier, diversification in this area of business could easily generate new revenues where it is possible to get up to 3X more revenue than the present business model where you can maximise labour productivity with less unskilled crew, creating mass value for franchise owners. Therefore with control over every reporting tools, management could easily give directions to franchise owners to get the maximum ROI for every branch in MacDonald’s network, where it is possible to increase the new number of franchisees by another 50% worldwide. Even the spinoff of McCafe could be easily generated by creating interest from investors by studying the appropriate products that is required for each local branch, the markets is big enough if you do not have destructive competition directly with StarBucks, Coffee Beans and other competition.

My main objective is to create jobs for everyone and I do not expect anything in return.

To add value to McCafe, takeover Dunking Donuts to compete with Starbucks

Dunkin’ Donuts is an international doughnut and coffee retailer founded in 1950 by William Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts;[1] it is now headquartered in Canton. While the company originally focused on doughnuts and other baked goods, over half of its business today is in coffee sales, making it more of a competitor to Starbucks than to more traditional competitors such as Krispy Kreme.[3]
The company has opened more than 10,000 locations in 32 countries worldwide [3], which include more than 6,700 Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the United States and more than 3000 international locations.[4] This figure compares with the 17,009 stores of coffee chain Starbucks, whose baked goods are usually prepared out of shop. Nearly all of Dunkin’ Donuts locations are franchisee owned and operated.[5] Only 75 franchisees exist west of the Mississippi River, mostly in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.[6] Within their Northeast home base, however, Dunkin’ Donuts is particularly dominant and can be found in many gas stations, supermarkets, mall and airport food courts, and Walmart stores across the region.
Dunkin’ Donuts, along with Baskin-Robbins, is co-owned by Dunkin’ Brands Inc. (previously known as Allied Domecq Quick Service Restaurants, when it was a part of Allied Domecq). Dunkin’ Brands used to own the Togo’s chain, but sold this in late 2007 to a private equity firm. Dunkin’ Brands was owned by French beverage company Pernod Ricard S.A. after it purchased Allied Domecq. They reached an agreement in December 2005 to sell the brand to a consortium of three private-equity firms, Bain Capital Partners, the Carlyle Group and Thomas H. Lee Partners.

In the United States, Dunkin’ Donuts is sometimes paired with Baskin-Robbins ice cream shops. While such locations usually have two counters set up for each chain (much like the Wendy’s/Tim Hortons co-branded locations), depending on business that day, both products can be bought at the same counter (usually the Dunkin’ counter), much like the Yum! Brands stores.
The company’s largest competitors include Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks, as well as small locally owned donut shops. In Canada and parts of the northern United States, Tim Hortons is a major competitor. In Colombia Donut Factory had been its local rival, although Dunkin’ still is preferred and has encouraged this desire by adapting their donut selection to local tastes.[7] Mister Donut had been its largest competitor in the United States before the company was bought by Dunkin’ Donuts’ parent company. The Mister Donut stores were rebranded as Dunkin’ Donuts. Dunkin still controls the trademark rights to the Mister Donut trademark through various new and amended older trademark registrations with the USPTO.
————————————————————————
First advantage, ready market worldwide, second, branding where McCafe can be side by side Dunking Donut, extended markets for both products where automatically I can list McCafe with as big a capitalisation as Starbucks after that. Whatever ROI you invest will be doubled. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity where the returns are guaranteed, you will not lose money.
You make money then you want you can reward me, I actually do not need anything in return. Once I complete my own projects I will worth more than Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook combined.
