The Power of Socializing

social networking

Socializing is a concept long studied by sociologists, psychologists, and anthropologists to understand the behavior of an individual’s degree of participation in a community.  Theories have been developed about social networking and the benefits of belonging to a social group.  The power of socializing is unlimited.  Not only can social engagement connect you with others, it can also help you reach your goals, increase happiness, stay mentally sharp, feel supported, reduce stress and lengthen your lifespan.

The founders of Karma International have perfected the world of socializing and provided a classy environment for like-minded, influential professionals to engage in social interactions.   Karma International provides an exclusive platform of private member-only events at least once per month, such as glamorous parties and soirees with celebrities, yachting and sporting social events, and other unique get-togethers at art galleries and high-profile homes.  Members are often encouraged to invite guests to expand the social circles by bringing in new, sophisticated and interesting prospects.  However, the only way to guarantee access to the finest and most exclusive social events and to enjoy the full privileges of Karma International is to become a Karma member.  Membership has its own set of criteria to maintain the exclusivity of the organization.  Once Karma members join, they build their social networks and they find it easier to become more socially engaged with their peers who become lifetime friends.

Enjoy some of the most spectacular bikes in the county.

The adventure continues, cruising through the oak tree lined roads of Trabuco Canyon and down through the back side of South Orange County to the Ortega Highway, Route 74, as we descend and climb through the national forest, we’ll pass through some great mountain/valley scenery to our next destination for lunch at Hell’s Kitchen. Hell’s Kitchen is an eclectic motorsports restaurant of a devilish nature, located along the Ortega Hwy. After lunch at the Coffin Bar, well ride the last few miles to the to the top of Mt. Elsinore, and make our final stop at The Lookout Roadhouse, where you will truly be amazed at the breathtaking view as route 74 sits thousands of feet above the lake and its valley.

After a brief scenic stop at the Lookout, we part ways, and those heading back to Orange County, San Diego or Los Angeles can ride back down the Ortega’s to the 5 freeway in San Juan Capistrano, or those going to Riverside County areas, can continue onward on the Ortega Highway to quickly descend 10 miles down to Lake Elsinore and on to the 15 freeway.

We are meeting at 10am at the Orange Hill’s Restaurant and depart for the Ride after Brunch at high noon sharp!

The total distance of the run is approximately 100 miles.

Karma’s Monthly Spotlight

Karma’s June Spotlight: Rudy Baldoni, Member

In order to obtain a Karma membership, one must be an established business executive, who enjoys the good life and a thought leader throughout the industry with strong ties to philanthropy and a commitment to overall greater good. The ideal Karma Member personifies our organization’s goals through their character and not just at our socials, dinners and other networking events, but in their own everyday business environment.

A Karma International Membership signifies a deep-seeded dedication to philanthropic efforts, revered success in the business world and an ever-growing entrepreneurial spirit. As an organization, we seek to foster valuable relationships with like-minded individuals to enhance their professional and personal lives.

This June, in honor of Father’s Day, we would like to introduce Rudy Baldoni, Chairman and CEO of Newport Investment Associates. Serving on the board of directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters Orange County and Inland Empire, Rudy takes great pride in providing both advocacy and mentor services to the youth in his community and worldwide. 

Karma International: Why does philanthropy play such an important role in your life, and when did this passion begin?

Rudy Baldoni: Since 1995 I have been involved with the Orange County division of Big Brothers Big Sisters, becoming a member of the board in 1999 and the Chairman of the Board in 2012. BBBS is the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported child mentoring network. I’ve been raised to believe in continuously giving back to the community, so the value of supporting local charities has always been instilled in me. However, my involvement with BBBS is when my philanthropic spirit noticeably peaked. To be immersed within a non-profit organization is an eye-opening, inspiring and truly rewarding experience that has forever changed me. For over 100 years, BBBS has worked tirelessly to give each child the chance needed to move forward and thrive in life. It is a movement I am immensely proud to be a part of, and child-focused philanthropy is a cause that I continue to wholeheartedly support.

KI: You’ve been a mentor to many individuals throughout your career, but who has been your most inspiring mentor?

RB: A mentor is somebody with the ability to guide you through life as both a teacher and a friend. For me, that special someone has always been my father. As a physician with great business acumen, he showed me the stepping stones to successful entrepreneurship, providing me with all the right tools to successfully start and manage my own business, Newport Investment Associates. Additionally, he has shown me time and time again what it means to be compassionate, cooperative and thoughtful – subsequently fostering my charitable actions. Now, as a father myself, I am glad to have had countless moments spent with my father learning our family’s history that I can now pass on to my children and share with my wife. This Father’s Day, everyone should take the time to thank the male mentor in their life – be it a father, grandfather, brother, friend or volunteer.

KI: As an entrepreneur, what has inspired you and given you the motivation needed for such success?

RB: I’ve had the privilege of being surrounded by numerous business mentors throughout my life and career. Because of this, I have mastered the art of observing those around me who have proven successful and emulated their actions. It is imperative to take positives from other people, as well as learn from their mistakes. Spending time with my children has been a top priority for me, which has led my life and career in the perfect direction.

As well as cherishing the time spent with family, I’ve also enjoyed my time with Karma International. Becoming a Karma Member has helped me network and learn more through other entrepreneurs’ experiences – it’s a rewarding feeling to be part of such a prestigious group of business-minded mentors.

KI: What has been the most beneficial aspect of your Karma International Membership thus far?

RB: Karma events provide all of its Members with the opportunity to network with one another.  Along with providing fun and a great atmosphere, Karma also offers entrepreneurs a tremendous outlet to participate in charitable events, donations and campaigns, as well as a place to promote our own initiatives. I recommend Karma International to any professional I meet, thanks to its high-caliber events, networking opportunities and overall passion for giving back. As an entrepreneur and mentor, I believe the organizations philanthropic efforts will leave a lasting impact on our community.

Karma’s June Spotlight: Jenny Alter, Ambassador

Jenny Alter, Karma Ambassador

At Karma, we’re always looking for intelligent, charitable, and business-minded young women who wish to make a difference in the corporate and philanthropic worlds, through our Karma Ambassador Program. This month, we shine our spotlight on an Ambassador who has perfectly balanced her charitable actions with personal and professional accomplishments.

We would like to introduce Jenny Alter, a nuclear pharmacy services consultant, devoted equestrian, competitive triathlete, committed to helping pediatric cancer research combat cancer, brain disorders, obesity and diabetes, among other devastating health conditions. This distinguished Karma Ambassador tells us more in Karma’s June Spotlight:

Karma International: You’re an equestrian, cyclist and triathlete. What motivates you to maintain such a healthy lifestyle?

Jenny Alter:  My father is one of my biggest supporters and motivators when it comes to competing in triathlons and equestrian events. He’s an established business owner who trained race horses as a hobby, so naturally my interest in sports peaked at a very young age. During my adolescence, I competed in various equestrian competitions. Now between balancing my career, the Ambassador Program and charity events, I try to find time to participate in Polo Chukkas at the California Polo Club and Santa Barbara Polo Club.

I also enjoy regularly training and competing in triathlons and cycling races. Running and biking give me a renewed sense of energy and a goal to achieve. I take pride in being the team captain of the Los Angeles Cyclotron’s Cycling Team, where I strive to motivate others and build one strong, unified team.

KI: We hear your cycling team is participating in a benefit ride for the American Diabetes Association. How does philanthropy play a role in your daily life?

JA: Yes, this October in Santa Barbara, we will be cycling to benefit the American Diabetes Association, an organization I’m proud to support. While my dad played a big role in my athleticism, my mom is the driver of my passion for charity. She’s inspired me to give back more than just money, but time and dedication as well. As a result, I’m also involved in the event planning committee at the Lollipop Theater Network, an organization that provides entertainment for children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses.

Along with attending some of the best events across the nation and meeting skilled entrepreneurs, I know that every Karma event benefits an important cause, like raising awareness for autism or creating a support system for homeless and less-fortunate children. Karma differentiates itself from other membership organizations by combining its high caliber social interaction with its deep ties to philanthropy, which is what led me to its Ambassador Program. Being so immersed in my sports and athletic hobbies, as well as my career, Karma has provided me with the social, and philanthropic, opportunities I had been searching for. I am grateful to spend what little free time that I have with an organization that has fun while making a difference.

KI: Can you tell us more about your career and future goals?

JA: After earning my Bachelor’s degree from Florida State University, I began my career in medical sales. In 2011, I accepted a position as a nuclear radio-pharmaceutical (or Nuclear Medicine Sales Consultant) services consultant for a well-known Fortune 100 healthcare company. To date, I continue to work to advance the diagnosis and treatment of diseases through the use of radiopharmaceuticals and new bio tracers.

In the future, I hope to become a business owner in the healthcare industry. With this goal in mind, Karma has provided me with endless connections and experiences, leading me to meet similar business-minded individuals. Through the Karma Ambassador Program, I’ve acquired skills not taught in a typical classroom, from networking to having fun amongst successful entrepreneurs – all while working toward my business goals and aspirations.

If you’d like to donate to the Nautica Malibu Triathlon benefiting Pediatric Cancer Research, please follow this link.

To donate to the American Diabetes Association via Jenny’s Los Angeles Cyclotron’s Cycling Team, please go to  http://main.diabetes.org/goto/jennyalter

If you’re a young woman with the same drive, ambition and charitable involvement as Jenny, please inquire about becoming a Karma Ambassador. We are always open to accepting new applicants.

Are you a notable Karma Ambassador with a great story to tell? Then please contact Karma’s EVP Marvin Epstein to be featured in next month’s spotlight.

By coming together for this extraordinary event, sponsors and guests were able to raise $120,000 for the charity, which will be used to provide homeless children and their families with education, support services and community advocacy through Project Hope Alliance. We extend our limitless thanks and gratitude to presenting sponsor, Memento Mori Wine, whose award-winning creations were enjoyed throughout the evening.

With a French Riviera-inspired theme providing a breathtaking backdrop both inside and outside of the venue, VIPs, Karma Members, Ambassadors, celebrities and guests adorned in all white enjoyed an exclusive event, highlighted with good company, great music and a sensational atmosphere.

The night’s festivities were elevated by an electrifying performance from Grammy-nominated artist, Nadia Ali. In addition, a splash of bright summer color was seen during an exclusive fashion show from esteemed designer Hale Bob.  Hale Bob owner Daniel Bohbot walked on stage with the models to make a toast of thanks and success to the event.

On behalf of Karma International and all of the White Nights guests, we are grateful to our other major sponsor Trace3, and all of our supporting sponsors, including, XB, Mint Collection, Rockstar Energy Drink, Orange County Register,  Hint, My EPK, and our exclusive media sponsor, Orange Coast magazine, the trusted source for dining and events information in Orange County.
