Bob Reina Recalls The Inspiration For Talk Fusion

Every good business and product has its inspiration from somewhere. In many cases, the inspiration comes from a problem that the person needed to solve for himself and others. In the case with Talk Fusion, the inspiration has come in 2004 from a software called AOL. One thing that he had tried to do is attach a 10 second clip to an email that he wanted to send to his family in order to get an opinion on a house that he was touring. The unfortunate thing was that AOL has sent a message saying that it can’t be done.


This is when Bob Reina has started looking into ways to bring forth the capabilities for sending video in an email. He has experimented and tried many different solutions as well as developed new software so that it could be done. Eventually, he has come up with the solution that has come to be known as Talk Fusion. This has not only solved the challenge of marketers when it comes to getting customers but also made it so that communication can be deeper for people who are used to texting one another for communication.


Talk Fusion is the advantage that many smaller businesses need in order to get to a higher level of success. This type of advantage is one of the greatest things that entrepreneurs get to use in order to bring their business the attention it needs. Businesses need a lot of attention and fame in order for it to profit. As more people learn about the company, the business will have improved chances for profit. Then if the business owner or marketer is very creative with the type of work that he puts in, then he will be able to bring out a lot of conversions and even loyal customers to his company.

Diversant, LLC: Who is John Goullet?

In a competitive world, there are but two forces – the force of despair and the force of perseverance. Despair is just what it is, a loss. Perseverance on the other hand is a lot more – victory, innovation, growth and satisfaction. John Goullet encompasses the spirit of perseverance, both as a human being and as a businessman.

Mr John Goullet is the founder of Info Technologies Inc and serves as the chairman and principal of Diversant LLC. He has been in the Information Technology business for a long time and has used his experience to cut a niche for himself in the ever expanding market.

Mr Goullet is a hardworking man. While talking to Ideamensch, it clearly comes out that he puts a lot of effort and dedication into his work. When he is asked about how he brings ideas into life, he says that he reads and pays keen attention to the various IT markets around the world. So far, he says,there is a shortage of professional IT skills in the market and he uses such data to provide consultancy services for clients and provide professionals with job opportunities. He is also keen on developing talent wherever he goes.

What Motivates Him?

What keeps his engines oiled is the idea that their competition is at their heel. Mr Goullet is, however, not afraid of competition. He says there is a lot to be learnt from competitors – things to be emulated and things to be avoided. As a team leader, he is a great believer in team spirit. He intends to hire more people and the right people. He is very aware of the plague of bad influences that can imported from outside by new senior executives.
