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 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.
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?
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.

Hawaii volcanic water is taking the world by storm due to its many profound benefits. Not only is volcanic water naturally pH-balanced, but it is chock full of nutrients, electrolytes and minerals that are good for your body and health. One of the most well-known volcanic water companies in the world is Waiakea. Waiakea has been around since early 2012 and provides a delicious water alternative to those who want more out of the bottle they’re drinking from daily. Since the company has been in business, Waiakea has manufactured and sold over a million bottles. The water itself originates in gorgeous Hawaii at the base of the Mauna Loa volcano. The water first comes from the snow-peaked volcanic mountains and passes through volcanic rock to naturally filter the liquid. Once the water reaches the bottom of the volcano, Waiakea will collect it and bottle it to be sold. Further filtration is required to meet Health Department standards.
The founder and current CEO of the company is Mr. Emmons. He is the face and name behind the brand and has been a devout member of the Water Filtration Organization for many years. The Waiakea company is currently worth $10 million as of last year, making it one of the largest and fastest growing companies in the world. Waiakea has its headquarters in California, where the water is bottled and sold to the public. Each Waiakea bottle that you purchase has pure, natural volcanic water inside, which has a plethora of benefits you would not get from regular bottled water. Not only is volcanic water full of minerals and vitamins, but it’s a natural source of electrolytes as well since the water has to pass through volcanic rock to reach its source. Waiakea offers a number of different bottle varieties, from single bottles to 24-packs available for purchase either through their site or locally.
Waiakea uses only the most sustainable sources to bottle their water, which makes them the first Carbon Neutral certified water bottle company. For every purchase that is made, Waiakea will send part of the proceeds to aid social programs in Hawaii. Along with this, Waiakea will provide one week of clean water to a needy area for every purchase when you buy their water.
The FBI has seized BackPage.com and arrested two of the people who used to own and operate the website. This is not the first time Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been confronted by law enforcement officials, and it likely won’t be the last. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: https://angel.co/jim-larkin-1 and http://james-larkin.com/about/
The first time they were arrested courts ruled that Lacey and Larkin’s first amendment rights had been violating, calling into question the legitimacy of former Sheriff of Maricopa County Joe Arpaio.
This time authorities are alleging that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin knowingly participated in prostitution rings. You see, Backpage.com is a competitor to Craigslist, a website that hosts personal ads for yard sales, car trades, and much more. Everyone knows that their is prostitution happening on sites like this as well, but the creators of Craigslist aren’t being persecuted the same way Michael and Jim are.
Michael Lacey was trying to enjoy his life with his new bride when the FBI raided his home. Lacey and his fiancee had just been married and were planning their wedding celebration when the agents raided their home, guns out, in riot gear. It was like the FBI was taking down Pablo Escabar, but in reality they were raiding the homes of a harmless journalist.
Michael Lacey has hired one of the best attorneys available today. Paul Cambria is an expert on first amendment law, successfully keeping Larry Flynt, famous porn producer out of prison.
“We don’t believe he should be detained,” Cambria said in reference to Lacey’s arrest. “Not for a minute.”
The attorney also explained that believes the removal of Backpage.com from the open web is a clear case of government censorship. The website’s adult section had been removed since January of 2017, and to top it off, Michael Lacey is no longer even a part of the company.
“Any time that the government shuts down a major form of speech,” Cambria said. “It has a chilling effect.”
Who are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin?
As the owners of the Phoenix New Times, Lacey and Larkin pursued corrupt politician and incumbent Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio had been targeting immigrants as long as a lot of Arizona residents had been alive. A lot of Maricopa County had no idea what it was like to have a normal Sheriff protecting their community. Instead, they had Joe Arpaio, who was rumored to torture prisoners and commit illegal arrests.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are responsible for informing the public about Arpaio. They may have even played a role in the ending of Arpaio’s reign as sheriff.
Now, at Front Page Confidential, Larkin and Lacey continue their actions against Joe Arpaio. Expanding their scope, not only by preventing Arpaio from sitting in congress but also targeting national level politicians like John McCain and Paul Ryan, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are a voice for the American people and the first amendment.

Sentient AI: The Customer Might Not Always Be Right, but They Do Deserve An Excellent Ecommerce Customer Experience
I worked retail for a number of years. Though I do not miss it, I did learn a great deal from the experience. You might not always agree with what your customer has to say, but they do have the right to express their opinion. They might not walk away with exactly what they want, but at least you can give them the same experience as you give everyone else.
Five Tips You Can Use To Improve Your Ecommerce Customer Experience
1) According to research done by Sentient AI( Artificial Intelligence), you need to know your product inside and out. You cannot get by only knowing the bare minimum. I can tell you based on the first-hand experience that your customers will not like it. They will go elsewhere for the same product. If you do not know anything about what you are selling, then you should not be selling it.
2) You should be nice and friendly to your customers. Customers can tell if you are at all interested in serving them. If you approach them with total disinterest, then they will feel it and move on to someone else. You might not like the person you are serving, but you still need to smile. I know it can be difficult at times, but you need to try.
3) You should say thank you every time someone makes a purchase online. If you say thank you, they will want to come back and buy from you again. Saying thank you is habit-forming. Saying thank you will also increase your e-commerce sales, according to Sentient AI.
4) You need to train your staff and not just some of them. You also need to use the same training. I saw a great deal of haphazard training when I worked retail. Customers will have a more positive experience with you when all your staff is trained in the right way.
5) You need to show respect to your customers. You might not agree with their attitude toward you, but you should never let your emotions overtake you. You should try to put yourself in their shoes. They might be having a bad day. You never know what their story is. The image they present to you during the transaction might not be the whole picture, according to Sentient AI.
