A Beacon of Hope – Interview with Amber Connect CEO

Read an inspiring story of transformation, an interview with Mr. Dushyant Savadia, the CEO and founder of Amber Connect in the Jamaica Gleaner.

A Beacon of Hope

You could say that Dushyant Savadia has mastered the ‘Art of Living’ after managing to steer his life off a destructive path.

Savadia was born into a well-to-do family in India. However, the younger of Dinesh and Smita Savadia’s two sons was a bit of a problem child. Searching for something to fill an unhappiness he felt inside, the youngster turned to alcoholism and smoking at the tender age of 14 years.

“At one point, I was drinking up to a litre of rum every night,” Savadia told Flair. He was also a chain smoker, puffing his way through 40 to 50 packs of cigarettes every day. He remembers being very angry and aggressive in his youth. His parents did all they could for him, Savadia said, but nothing helped. They tried for several years until when he was 19 years old, his father, angry and frustrated, threw him out of the house.

Now on his own, Savadia was forced to find a way of surviving without his family. He travelled to Dehli and found work as a waiter. He found something else, too. He was introduced to the Art of Living Happiness Programme. It is a holistic wellness programme that focuses on helping persons find happiness and contentment within themselves. He eventually, through this programme, learnt self-control and developed a spirit of giving. Read more: http://tiny.cc/BeaconOfHope

GPS Tracking For Your Car

Read an article “GPS tracking for your car”, published in Jamaica Observer on April 19th, 2016.

GPS tracking for your car

The high rate of vehicle theft in Jamaica has led to an increasing number of people investing in tracking devices to secure their possessions.

Last week, police uncovered a motor vehicle ‘chop shop’ operation at Point Hill in St Catherine after personnel from a security company tracked a stolen vehicle to the location.

While this may be your most rewarding investment, finding the right device may prove a bit difficult depending on your needs and budget.

According to a new start-up Jamaican company Amber Connect “securing vehicles to combat the rise of car theft and carjacking has been offered traditionally at steep prices with out of date technology”.

There is the option of tracking your vehicle through a security company that offers monitoring services with a periodical fee. Or, you may opt to use a device that allows you to monitor your vehicle from your personal computer or smartphone with minimal or no fees.

If you choose the latter, Amber Connect says its GPS vehicle trackers are invaluable tools for monitoring your car through its Amber App to keep you informed and in control 24/7.  Read more: http://tiny.cc/BusinessFeature
