Philip Diehl’s Interview at EPN is Exceptional

The Entrepreneurial Podcast Network is home to the excellent program Enterprise Radio. The subjects covered on this program vary. Consistently, the show acts as a forum to interview outstanding members of the financial and business community.

Recently, the president of U.S. Money Reserve, Philip N. Diehl, made an appearance on the show. Diehl gave an excellent, comprehensive interview that shed a lot of light on the subject of gold investing and the company he runs.

U.S. Money Reserve is a business that has been able to establish itself as one of the top providers of precious metal coins in the United States. The Austin, TX seller has completed millions of dollars in purchases for scores of clients. Read more: US Money Reserve TV Commercials –

The company prides itself on customer service, a point the company president, Diehl repeatedly made in his well-regarded podcast interview some time ago. Diehl is also a former director of the U.S. Mint and, while running the Mint, he made sure customer service was the top priority there as well.

Good customer service means shipments of coins will be processed without any unnecessary delays. Representatives from the company will also work extensively with clients to be sure they are making the right decisions about the coins selected.

The U.S. Mint’s customer service was lacking before Diehl implemented a host of changes. The process shaped Diehl’s governing philosophy and he has imported that philosophy to U.S. Money Reserve.

The arrival of a brilliant new e-commerce website further ensures that U.S. Money Reserve is able to deliver on high expectations of customer service. Learn more about US Money Reserve: and

The site is designed specifically so customers can peruse brilliantly recreated visual images of various outstanding coins. The recreation of the coins is so brilliant, viewing them on the website won’t be far removed from what it is like to examine them in person.

Diehl reveals on the interview that U.S. Money Reserve prefers to deal in coins produced by the U.S. Mint because they are legal tender backed by the federal government. The quality and legitimacy of the coins are never in question. Investors should not ignore the critical traits of purity and legitimacy when seeking to buy precious metal coins.

Goettl Air Conditioning Owner Offers Military Graduates A Special Endowment

Three years ago Nick Hughes left the United States Navy and had no idea what type of career he would pursue. For him, becoming a civilian was a scary new beginning. However, now he is about to graduate from a two year applied science program that has taught him the ins and outs of air conditioning technology. His future success after graduating from the College of Southern Nevada has been aided by his receipt of the Post 9/11 Veterans Tools Award proudly sponsored by Goettl Air Conditioning owner Ken Goodrich.

The award is very distinct from traditional scholarships because it is designed to help graduates pursue work in their chosen career after graduation. The award gives recipients, and in this case Hughes, the ability to purchase $1,000 worth of tools he will need as he advances his career. I cannot imagine how helpful this is going to be, but I am sure Hughes is overwhelmed as I would be.

This is the second endowment provided by Goodrich who is one busy man. Not only does he run the highly successful Goettle Air Conditioning company, but he also awards students from multiple generation families in air conditioning the ‘Son of a Gun’ scholarship and sponsors the J. Duncan Goodrich Air Conditioning Technology Lab at CSN.

Goodrich stated that he created the award because he has learned over the course of working at his company that military men and women make great employees and he wants to help them get a positive start in the HVAC industry. The award is available to graduating students annually.

Goettle Air Conditioning was started in 1939 and moved to Las Vegas in 1968. In 2013 Ken Goodrich purchased the company when it moved to Arizona and reopened a branch office in Las Vegas where he first remembers loving the product. Today there are field offices in Las Vegas, Tucson, and Phoenix.

Serving these areas and those that surround them, Goettle Air Conditioning offers a complete list of repair, maintenance, and replacement services for HVAC systems with a special concentration on improving energy efficiency and indoor air quality. The company also works with commercial HVAC systems as well.

Electrifying Venezuela Village Named New Lightning Capital of the World

Those who say lightning never strikes twice need to check out Lake Maracaibo, in the village of Congo in Venezuela. According to the New York Times, NASA has declared it the lightning capital of the world.
This village by the Catatumbo River experiences lightning displays an average of 297 days a year as reported by Aserne. The area features a lightning tourist camp that caters to storm chasers. According to Manuel Gonzalez from Catatumbo Camp, tourists can sit back in the camp and drink a cold beer while watching the storms roll in. He also explains that the lightning storms are relatively safe for residents, who are protected while indoors by wooden floors, but that the electrical charges are dangerous for fishermen who are sometimes fatally struck on the lake. Between one and three people are struck every year in the area.

In receiving top honors, Lake Maracaibo unseated the Congo Basin in Africa as the world lightning capital. A wealth of weather data collected from a satellite has allowed precise analysis of lightning trends and led to NASA making the change in billing. The topography of the Venezuela village plays a major role in the weather; the Andes Mountains form a horseshoe basin full of cool air around the south of Lake Maracaibo while the Caribbean on the north provides warm breezes that meet with the mountain wind for optimal lightning conditions.


Two Day Work Week for Venezuela Not Exactly a Holiday

In an effort by Venezuela to continue combating their energy crisis, President Nicolás Maduro announced that he is mandating a two day work week for public employees.
This catastrophic situation is the result of the culmination of the country experiencing an economic recession as a result of decreasing oil prices, political mismanagement and a nationwide drought haulting production of hydroelectric power. Citizens of Venezuela like Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa struggle for access to basics such as food, household goods, internet to use facebook and medicine after having many years of flourishing as a world leader in oil supply.

Caribbean and Central American countries might soon be able to decrease their dependence on Venezuela for oil as the United States and other countries increase production of energy alternatives such as that from Shale mining, wind energy and solar ability.

Their fate may be determined during the upcoming energy summit in Washington DC which will be led by Vice President Joe Biden.

Venezuela Reverts Back to Former Time Zone

For nine years, Venezuela has had its own unique time zone, GMT -4:30 hours. Former President Hugo Chávez created this time zone back in 2007 by moving Venezuela’s time zone back thirty minutes. He wanted school children to have enough light as they walked to school.

Now as news went all over Facebook, President Nicolas Maduro has decided to revert back to the former time zone. This time, the change is due to Venezuela’s drought. The drought is so severe that the Guri Reservoir, Venezuela’s largest freshwater lake and one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, has reached record lows. Since a large percentage of Venezuela’s electricity is generated by the Guri Dam and other hydroelectric dams, the drought is creating both water and electrical shortages.
Expert Diaz Granados said “by adjusting the time zone and adding more daylight towards the end of the day, we hope that people will use less electricity”. The new time zone, GMT -4 hours, will go into effect on May 1.
To combat the power shortages, Maduro has also cut back on public sector workers’ hours and increased holidays.
