Currently working in insurance, William "Bill" Deyesso has had several years of experience working the real estate development industry, which he considers his life-long passion. During his free time, William "Bill" Deyesso enjoys several sports, including fencing.
Fencing is considered to be one of the oldest games in history. Because fencing originated directly out of wars, the sport has always been extant in areas wherever there is war. However, it was probably the Germanic tribes that conquered fallen Rome that considered swordfight as one of the viable methods of settling grievances. The Germanic empire's influence eventually spread through the entire Christendom.
In Europe, there were three schools of fencing: Italian, Spanish, and French. It is the latter school that predominated in the United States and in Central America. Fencing came to the United States in the 1860s through French immigrants. The first fencing school in the country was established in 1874.
Before William Deyesso was the CEO of Buyer’s Choice, Inc., he served as the executive vice president for Winn Development. Despite the change in focus, real estate management and development remain strong passions for William Deyesso. Here are a few tips for new real estate developers:
1. Know Your Market: Taking the time to learn your local area’s real estate market will be invaluable to your business and help ensure success on riskier projects. Knowing the market means you will have a grasp on local housing patterns, school rankings, bubbles and low points. Understanding the long-term housing trends help you make informed decisions on your own long-term investment strategies.
2. The Outskirts of Town: If you notice real estate prices in your city are rising, it is likely a sign of high demand. When this happens, it is not uncommon for a town’s outskirts to also become in-demand areas. Keep an eye open for any areas close to major public transportation lines, and check with city officials to see if any new transportation plans are in development.
3. Plan With Investors in Mind: While your ultimate goal may be to design a project that appeals to the end buyer, you will first need to impress potential investors, getting them excited about your plans and addressing any concerns they have regarding risk, your experience, and the project itself.
Throughout his professional career in insurance and real estate, William Deyesso has held such esteemed roles as CEO and executive vice president. Also involved in multiple charities to varying degrees, William Deyesso supports the American Cancer Society. The ACS recently updated their recommendations regarding the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine to include males.
When the American Cancer Society began recommending the HPV vaccine in 2007, it was not yet approved for males, and there was not much evidence it was necessary. In light of more recent findings and new vaccines for the virus, the ACS decided to update their recommendations.
The American Cancer Society now recommends both boys and girls begin the HPV vaccination cycle around age 11, as the vaccine works best before a person becomes sexually active and is potentially exposed to the virus. If you miss those early vaccinations, the ACS says vaccinating between the ages of 13-26 is acceptable, but the vaccination will not be as effective in lowering your risk for cancer.
Transmitted through sexual contact, most unvaccinated adults will get HPV at some point in their life. In most cases, the virus goes away without raising any health concerns. In some cases, however, HPV can lead to various types of cancer, including cervical, throat, and vulva cancer.
The United States Centers for Disease Control warns that between 2008 and 2012, 29,000 cases of cancer could have potentially been avoided with the HPV vaccine. To learn more about the HPV vaccine and the American Cancer Society’s recommendations, visit cancer.org.
With experience as a CEO and a corporate executive, William Deyesso has maintained a positive record of corporate leadership and management. Outside of his professional career, William Deyesso is also engaged in a gentleman’s farm in New Hampshire, and enjoys other hobbies including deep sea fishing.
Also referred to as big game fishing, offshore boat fishing, and sport fishing, deep sea fishing usually occurs far out at sea, with water depths of at least thirty meters, or 98 feet. Deep sea anglers often take different approaches, depending on the type of fish they are after.
Bottom fishing, used for fish such as grouper and snapper, refers to an angling method where a line is dropped to the sea floor to hook fish that reside there. Trolling is another method where the boat is driven at a slow speed and tows the fishing line behind it. Trolling is used for fish such as kingfish and mackerel. Lastly, offshore fishing is used by anglers seeking the biggest game fish and takes place far off shore in deeper waters. Fish sought after by offshore anglers include black fin tuna and marlin.
