Doe Deere: “Lime Crime” an American Dream

Home | Business | Doe Deere: “Lime Crime” an American Dream

How does a homeless newly immigrant child go from waiting in church lines for food to become one of America’s most successful CEO’s? Introducing Doe Deere, founder of makeup company “Lime Crime” and advocate for empowering women through her products and company message. Doe Deere employees a team of over 35 individuals all leading the way to show women that they can be anything they want to be and more.

Doe Deere’s journey has been filled with hope, despair, and change. Doe was born in Russia and live there throughout her younger years, yet, she always knew that America was the place she wanted to be at. She recalls admiring all the American movies, loving the music and being enchanted by the English language. Her dream to move to America would come true at the age of 17 when her mother decided to take her and her sister across the pond.

New York City, “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere”, a quote Doe Deere often read. Her hopefulness to make something out of herself in the land opportunity was for the taking. Unfortunately, the light of that dream began to deem in the struggle her family dealt with to just pay the bills. Doe’s mother was an accounted in Russia, however, here her transfer papers were slow moving which meant that her accolades meant nothing. She was forced to take on cleaning jobs and eventually the family would end up at a Manhattan homeless shelter. There, during the cold nights huddled in one room and the waiting in line for food, Doe Deere kept her hopes of America buy daydreaming about becoming a fashion designer.

In 1999, the family would finally begin to recover. Dorchen Leidholdt, a social worker came to the aid of her family. Leidholdt would find her mother an accounting job, her sister a scholarship to Colombia University, and for Doe, a route to the Fashion Institue of Technology. Moving forward to 2008, Doe Deere would finally realize her American dream in the form of “Lime Crime”. Doe Deere has demonstrated that those who make America great, may not even start as Americans.


The Goodness That Comes with Waiakea.

Home | Business | The Goodness That Comes with Waiakea.

The bottled water market is numerous with hundreds of water brands. There is an estimated a hundred billion dollars in this industry across the world with the Italians as the number one consumers of bottled water. A few years back, selling bottled water was not well recognized but currently, the water market has become very competitive. Companies now add a little something to the water to make it clearer and stand out. With the added ‘little something’, companies claim that the uniqueness and goodness are what makes the water standout from the rest. All this is done to promote the companies’ bottled water.

A post shared by @ waiakea on

With all these to light, many people might actually be asking what makes the water different from millions of bottled water in the market. To begin with, Waiakea water was founded in the year two thousand and twelve and is located in Hawaii. Come to think of it, when you think of Hawaii, what is the first thing that comes in mind? I would guess the natural goodness that comes with the vibe of Hawaii. Waiakea water is all Hawaiian, including the name. Waiakea is coined from the words wai akea which translates to broad waters. Incorporating the culture definitely promotes the good feeling of buying anything Hawaiian.

Since the commencing of the company, they have made enormous strides by taking the extra steps. Their creativity has contributed to the growth of the brand since the water filtered is actually volcanic water. Waiakea water is filtered through water running fourteen thousand feet of the porous volcanic rock through Mauna Loa Volcano. Not only does Waiakea water brings the awesomeness in saying you are drinking volcanic water but it also thrives in taking care of the environment. The business is certified carbon neutral because they use low emission vehicles to distribute and deliver their products.

Beyond taking care of the environment, three percent of their revenue goes to local programs in the community and non-profit organizations. Also, every liter of water bought, Waiakea company donates a full weeks supply of clean water to the people of Malawi in need of these services. That aside, they use degradable bottles and recyclable plastic thus saving the environment from pollution. What isn’t literally good about Waiakea?



The End Citizens United’s Mission

The End Citizens United’s Mission

The formation of End Citizens United was triggered by the decision that was made in the year 2010 about the case that was presented between the Citizens United vs. F.E.C. The decision that was made to allow big corporations to spend as much money as they need in America’s elections would entirely change the United States’ politics for as long the law still exists. The worst of it is that the court issued legal permission to big corporations and individuals to spend money without being scrutinized which means America’s elections can now be bought. This could mean the big corporations could select the leaders of their choice by sponsoring them with any amount they need. However, this decision only marked the beginning of another fight. The group’s financial information is available on OpenSecrets.Org.

The Formation of End Citizens and its Grievances

The End Citizens United political committee was started in the year 2015 to spearhead the fight against big corporations funding political parties with ill intentions. The End Citizens United represents the average Americans and they are not funded by big money but they receive their donations from grassroots. Some of the problems that come with the 2010 Supreme Court decision include the rich groups funding their aspirants who will end passing laws that favor big corporations at the expense of the average Americans.

Apart from their commitment to put an end to the Citizens United, they are also focused on ensuring that pre-reform candidates are elected and also doing away with using money in politics among other commitments. The End Citizens United political committee intends to fight this war by ensuring that the issue of big money politics becomes a national concern. The End Citizens have shown their support to the pro-reform Democrats candidates which have received several critics in the past. However, they have responded to these critics by stating out that despite the fact that there are some Republicans and independent candidates have shown their fight against this fight against big money politics, there are many Republicans members of Congress who have shown that they are determined to protect the 2010 Supreme Court decision from being reversed.

The development of the biggest tour company in Brazil by Guilherme Paulus

Home | Financial Leader | The development of the biggest tour company in Brazil by Guilherme Paulus

Guilherme Paulus started CVC Tour Company in 1972. Four decades later, it is the biggest tour company in Latin America. It grew so big that he even sold part of it to Carlyle Group. He is now holding about 37 percent of the company. The growth of this company, however, depicts the great work that he has done in the Brazilian tourism industry. He has created something that has offered job opportunities to hundreds of people around the country. Since he created this company, his life changed, and the Brazilian tourism sector changed. Many tourists have been coming into the country through the recommendation of CVC.

Guilherme Paulus had partnered with a friend in 1972 to start this company. In fact, it is his friend who came up with the idea of building CVC and even offered to provide the money needed to start the operations. Guilherme Paulus was young and had no source of money to allow him to finance the company. He was an intern with IBM. After the deal with Carlos Vicente, he started working on the project. He left his job at IBM and concentrated on making the dream of a tour company possible. Four years into the business, he was left alone. His friend was no longer in the business, and it was all alone for him. He had to look for ways of surviving seeing that his friend was the investor in the business. Guilherme was convinced that the idea would work no matter the challenges, he held on made sure that he never allowed anything wrong to happen. By the stroke of the new millennium, he was the owner of the biggest tour company in Brazil.

Guilherme Paulus has succeeded because he has always been a committed leader in the business. His eyes and mind are focused on building an empire that would offer more advantages to the country. So far, it is no longer what he can achieve, but what he can help the country achieve. He has built a successful business that has offered job opportunities to thousands of Brazilians. He has also created another business known as GJP Hotel and Resorts.

How Jason Hope And The Internet of Things Will Change The World.

Home | entrepreneur | How Jason Hope And The Internet of Things Will Change The World.

Hop into your local time machine and travel back to the ’70s or ’80s. You’ll find a world that is completely detached from the digital, internet-driven experience that modern humans are living in. In the impossibly short timeframe of just 30 or 40 years, humanity has changed in a way that will never be undone. We are now more connected, more educated, and more prosperous than ever before. Jason Hope is a futurist who has spent years establishing his reputation for being sharp-minded and focused on issues that are just beyond the bend. Hope is joining many of his futurist colleagues in calling for the enhancement of the Internet of Things. What is the Internet of Things? What is the IoT all about? Let’s take a closer look at the subject. You can find Jason Hope on Twitter @JasonHope for latest updates.

Jason Hope has been a firm believer in the Internet of Things essentially since he jumped out of college and started working full-time in the tech field. Like many other entrepreneurs, Jason Hope is constantly put in front of technology as a means to expand his wealth and help to develop new products that can actually change the world. With that being said, Hope doesn’t believe in the Internet of Things because it is a financially viable thing to do. Hope believes in the Internet of Things because it is the ONLY thing that you can do.

The internet along with surging smart technology has fundamentally changed the world that we live in. From our smart watches which track our location and physical attributes to the smart public transit systems that keep people moving in highly populated areas, the internet has become a life-changer. Hope has seen the signs and he knows that there are more leaps and bounds to make in the coming years and he wants to be there when they happen.

The Internet of Things, Hope believes, can be the most important technological innovation in recent memory. Hope believes that the IoT will become so widespread and integral to our daily lives that any corporations who choose to ignore it now will be doing so at their own economic peril. The Internet of Things isn’t going to be the final frontier for innovation, but it is certainly going to be the most important one.

Jason Hope is a talented futurist with an extensive career as an entrepreneur. He graduated from Arizona State University before getting his MBA from the WP Carey School of Business.

Shervin Pishevar Understands Bitcoin In Latest Set Of Tweets

Home | Business | Shervin Pishevar Understands Bitcoin In Latest Set Of Tweets

I’m glad that someone else finally chimed in on the bitcoin craze. Shervin Pishevar recently went on a tweet rant that lasted more than 21 hours. He touched on a lot of points, but his tweet about bitcoin has gotten lost. It echoes something I’ve been saying for years.

Proponents of bitcoin like to tout the online currency’s unregulated status. Essentially, bitcoin lovers believe that the online currency is inherently valuable because it is not under the regulatory eyes of any government. Instead, it exists online in something called the blockchain.

The blockchain is simply data that is stored on millions of computers around the world. You probably have some of this data on your computer if you are dabbling in bitcoin. This distribution of data makes bitcoin impossible to hack. It also makes it impossible to control.

Shervin Pishevar does not think bitcoin is completely untethered. In fact, his tweet storm says otherwise. He thinks the online currency will drop rapidly over the next few months alongside the stock market to create another recession. This goes against everything bitcoin proponents love about the online currency.

Shervin Pishevar, like me, knows that bitcoin is tied to the stock market. It has no inherent value. Gold, on the other hand, has tangible value. It’s something you can hold, admire and bury in your backyard in case of a crisis. That’s why gold will skyrocket in value as the economy tanks.

People won’t want to hold their bitcoins when things get bad. In fact, there’s nothing to hold. It’s an abstract idea, and, as Shervin Pishevar says, its value is tied to the stock market. It’s not some independent currency that will sore in value when the times get tough.

I’m just glad that Shervin Pishevar is back. He’s disappeared for a while due to some personal issues, but he’s one of the great market minds of today. His tweet storm marks the return of an investment giant. He was smart enough to invest in Uber early, and he set up his own investment business called Investment company. He certainly knows what he’s talking about.
