Being one of the richest and most influential Arabs in the world isn’t something simply handed to a person. DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani has created his real estate empire by following in the steps of the hard-working entrepreneurs of the world. For each success he has enjoyed, there preceded a grueling journey of education, working for others, and above all, vision and risk taking. However, taking risks isn’t something one does in a wild manner. DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani believes that sticking to simple routines is the marrow that will enrich his business ventures and make his risks pay off in spectacular fashion.
Sajwani began like most young people. He worked after school. In his case, he helped his father, also an entrepreneur, sell watches. Grinding it out after school, however, didn’t detract from Hussain Sajwani’s thirst for education. He excelled in the classroom to the point where he was noticed by the UAE, and in fact became one of their first students to be sent to the United States to further his education. He touched down in the great northwest and studied at the University of Washington, graduating with degrees in Industrial Engineering and Economics.
Itching to immerses himself in the workforce, DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani rolled up his sleeves and began punching the clock for a financial institution. After gaining vital experience the natural next step was to start his own business. He did so by running a catering operation that was so successful it served 150,000 meals per day. Once Hussain Sajwani realized that setting a course and seeing it through to fruition was a healthy business foundation, he set his sights on the massive and intimidating real estate arena. Again, starting small, Sajwani began developing a string of hotels. When the real estate market opened up to the EAU in the early 2000s, Hussain Sajwani pounced. He created DAMAC, and today DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani stands astride of the real estate world, with plans on expanding into China. Hussain has proven that a person carves out their standing in this world with ethics and hard work, no matter the starting point.

In keeping with this sentiment, her headquarter in Austin, Texas is staffed by an entirely female staff, who are afforded many luxuries not seen in other business establishments.
Recently, Bumble went through a big change at their headquarters contrary to the success they are experiencing with their app. Following the Parkland Shooting, Whitney Wolfe chose to ban guns in any of Bumble’s user’s profile pictures, which took a turn for the worst when this action was met with threats against the company and Whitney herself. Making the decision t enstate full-time security at within her office, she also found herself needing a security detail fo anywhere she went outside of the office. Seeing as Whitney Wolfe works so diligently to provide a safe workplace for women, the threats the company received coupled with the fact that those threats were of the sexual nature has made her more determined than ever to make the world a safe place for women, speak out for their rights, and do what she can to provide her clients and employees with the same.

Freedom Checks is an investment strategy that has been one of the most profitable in 2018. The idea was started early this year by Matt Badiali, a mining expert cum financial expert. The work he has done of making sure that the average Americans have on their hands the most profitable strategy is no mean achievement. He has researched and finally came up with the idea that is derived from the mining operations going on in the world. Matt Badiali can relate what is happening in the mining sector, with what to expect the financial market to behave. By making this comparison, he can benefit financially from the changes that are taking place in the mining sector.
Freedom Checks were controversial in the first days of its introduction. Many people thought the idea could not work because it was too good to be true. Matt Badiali was promising to help Americans make huge amounts of money within a short time. The things he was proposing seemed impossible. In the world today, get-rich-quick scams have been on the rise, and as a result, people are trying to be cautious before paying any money.
Freedom Checks idea was generated from the changes in the oil and gas industry. According to Matt Badiali, the oil and gas industry is going to face some challenges that will lead to an increase in oil prices. He is projecting that the prices will be going up significantly due to a shortage of oil in the Middle East. Attention will now be turned to American companies that produce these products. These companies will be in a better position to make huge returns. According to the internal revenue laws, there are companies known as Master Limited Partnerships. These companies enjoy tax relief due to the nature of the services they offer.
Matt Badiali is projecting that Freedom Checks payouts will be huge since the profits these companies will make will also be huge. Since they enjoy tax relief, investors are the ones who stand to gain the most from the Freedom Checks. Matt Badiali believes this idea has the potential to change the lives of many Americans.

As a young Jewish Russian immigrating to America with her mother and her sister, Doe Deere’s life quickly became better in the Big Apple. Though financial tribulations were constantly endured throughout her whole young life, Deere was able to develop a very successful cosmetic brand in Los Angeles.
Lime Crime is a trendy cosmetics company well-known for their long-lasting liquid lipsticks. Lime Crime was a trend setter helping to increase the popularity of these unique lipsticks. Their Velvetine shade of liquid lipstick was constantly in high demand over the course of several years which made consumers long for it even more during that time period.
Doe Deere is thankful for the success of such a thriving company and thanks America for that opportunity — one in which she would not have had such luck obtaining and financially growing in Russia. Her family risked everything to emigrate from Russia, and she is thankful that her mother allowed them to take that risk in order to live a safer and more luxurious lifestyle here in America.
As Lime Crime continues to grow, Doe Deere is proud that she continues to employ more Americans in her Los Angeles business as well as inspiring women across the world. In today’s society, not only women are wearing cosmetics which has boosted the high-dollar cosmetic industry even more. Independent brands such as Lime Crime are setting the standard for unapologetic creativity in the beauty industry thanks to creators and entrepreneurs such as Doe Deere. As an Indie brand with a well-known reputation, Doe Deere and Lime Crime have the opportunity to make a difference and lead the way for other Indie brands to take the competition from the public beauty brands that lack creativity and longevity. Doe Deere’s creativity, in my opinion, is just beginning; her motivation will likely lead her to even more beauty creations in the near future in which we will all hear about.
