In the year 2005, when the Dallas area of Texas was going through a period of deregulation in their electricity market as well as the entire electricity market of the State of Texas, Rob Snyder and Pierre Koshakji launched a company that offered energy services to clients across Texas. Stream is the name of the company which started out as a provider of energy but has since then grown to more than that. Three years from the time it was founded, the company expanded its reach to the State of Georgia, then to the North Eastern region two years later. From there, the company was able to expand to more than seven states including Washington D.C. Stream Energy has also been able to launch a different division of the company that offers wireless services and mobile phone services called the Stream Wireless. Despite expanding to several states, Stream Energy has maintained its headquarters in Dallas, Texas.
The Stream Cares Foundation
Giving back to the society has become a culture at Stream Energy. The company has started a division of the company known as the Stream Cares Foundation which is in charge of all the works of charity that the company partakes in. one specific course that is close to the heart of Stream Energy is helping the Homeless. Stream Cares works with the Hope Supply corporation with which the company supplies food and basic needs to the homeless. The company also assists the Hope Supply Corporation to supply the homeless with diapers, schools supplies and more other supplies that children require. Stream cares also works with the HABITAT foundation and the Red Cross with whom they work on finding settlements for the homeless in the Dallas area and beyond.
When Hurricane Harvey hit the areas around Houston, Texas, Stream Energy’s Stream Cares Foundation was among the first organizations to reach out to help the victims of the crisis. Through the foundation, the employees of the company helped find shelters for the victims who not only lost their homes but also lost their property, families, friends and even pets.

Nick Vertucci recently released his first book titled “Seven Figure Decisions: Having the Balls to Succeed.” This would look back at his life over the years and how he has been able to surmount numerous challenges to become one of the leading real estate investors and educators. He breaks down quite a lot and demystifies real estate and gives some of the key reasons others should invest in the sector. His journey in real estate began after the 2000 bubble. At the time Nick Vertucci had invested almost his entire savings in tech.
This would prove very detrimental, and for someone who had a young family, it could not have come at a worse time. He was, however lucky enough not to ignore the pleas of a friend who had invited him for a real estate seminar. This would mark the beginning of a new journey in the real estate sector. He began by reading and researching as much as he could on what to expect and what challenges he had to overcome before succeeding in the industry. This quest for knowledge would prove valuable once he got into the industry. He made his first investment using his remaining savings luckily the deal went well, and he was able to invest more as the days went by.
In the process, Nick Vertucci developed a strategy that worked for him, and this would be his saving grace once the mortgage crisis hit in 2007. During this time even, big players in the industry were badly hit and by the time the crisis came to an end some had completely closed shop. Nick Vertucci, however, had managed to make some smart investments during this period and he would capitalize on them after that. Today Nick is committed to teaching others the value of investing and how to achieve financial freedom while at it.
