Gagandeep Singh - Finding Opportunities to Volunteer

There is a common misconception that we live in a dog eat dog world. Yes there are individuals who are vicious in the pursuit of their goals and will have no problems stepping on others via despicable methods to get there. However, if the world at large was of that opinion, there would be a lot more heartache and pain around; and there is a lot already.


There are people who are kind, and willing to help out in whatever way possible. People who are willing to give back to society. These are volunteers. Volunteers understand the importance of giving their time to help others. Volunteerism is a virtue and should be extolled as such. Gagandeep Singh has this virtue. He gives his time to his home community by teaching children boxing and helping to build Sikh Temples in his home community located in Queen’s New York.


He also understands that your community does not necessarily have to be your immediate surroundings, but the people you identify with for whatever reason. In this case we refer to his donations to the less fortunate female population, to aid them in marriage. He makes his donations through his company, J&G General Contracting Inc.


There are volunteer opportunities all over. You may look to your immediate community, or even outside your own country. The key to choosing how and where to volunteer is tied to your skills and interests. If you are interested in children, then you may prefer to volunteer at a children’s home or in a hospital. Conversely, if you presser working with adults, you may volunteer in a retirement home or a hospice depending on what you hope to accomplish. It would even be considered notable to volunteer in the office of a non-profit organization, a few extra hands in the office would help them set their minds to more important tasks on their agenda. The basis of volunteering is giving. Wherever you find your hands are needed, offer to help and you will be on your way to finding the volunteer opportunity that’s right for you.

Honesty is key. If you can’t be trusted no one will be comfortable working with you and the job will be get done satisfactorily. Your business is a reflection of you. If you run an honest business, your employees willfollow suit and your customers will appreciate it. You will notice because they will keep coming back; each time with more people.


A simpler and more commonly used word to demonstrate courage in convictions is confidence. Confidence is essential in any business especially when things are not going your way. You are the leader. Your employees will look up to you for guidance especially in times of crisis. Despite how you may feel you must keep company morale up, remain calm and confident so that your employees can look to you and emulate your behavior.


These are qualities that Gagandeep Singh has and will exercise in his positions of the two companies he is affiliated with. He understands their essence and why they are important and at his young age, he should to be commended for his efforts to forge his own path as a leader.

The Importance of Basic Healthcare Training - How to be Prepared in an Emergency

While many people know the value of life-saving techniques such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), it is estimated that nearly 70% of Americans feel helpless to act when they see someone suffer a cardiovascular attack.

With nearly 88% of cardiovascular emergencies taking place at home, having knowledge of basic lifesaving techniques could make the difference in an emergency ending in disaster or a heroic, lifesaving act. Those suffering from a cardiovascular event are up to three times more likely to survive if they receive CPR and less than 8% of those suffering an attack outside of a hospital survive.

One study has shown, those who simply watch an educational video on CPR, or see an informational pamphlet are more likely to act in the case of an emergency. Taking several minutes to view the information in the following link could save one of the 383,000 lives annually who suffer a cardiovascular attack.

The statistics are overwhelmingly in favor of taking the time to learn CPR. The person you may save could easily be a spouse, parent, or child.

Gagandeep Singh, a young Hofstra University Student and son to immigrants to the United States, believes in being prepared in the event of an emergency. With experience as a home health aide, this 21-year-old Engineering student is certified in CPR, and he wishes more would do the same. He believes it is our responsibility to one another as a community to be prepared and to act in the event of an emergency.
