Malini Saba is the founder of Saban. She is among the most remarkable female investors, businesspersons, and philanthropists in the world. Malini kick started her career life in the 1990s in the Silicon Valley. Here, Malini tried investing in various firms, before she made a decision to start her own venture. I see this as very inspiring and motivating to women as well as men out there. She began Saban, which would later turn out to be the most substantial investment. Saban primarily operates in three varied locations in the world, specializing in different business activities. In China, Saban operates in the oil and gas industry. The firm also holds interests in the real estate sector in Australia and India as well as technology in the United States.

 

Aside from being a remarkable businessperson, Malini Saba is an impassioned philanthropist. Malini donates and contributes money to various charity causes with the ultimate aim of creating sustainable societies. In 2001, Malini Saba started Stree: Global Investment in women. Bill Clinton and Queen Noor inaugurated the organization. The foundation aims at providing reliable access to education and healthcare services to both children and women from low-income backgrounds.

 

The funds were dedicated to starting the first Research Center for the South Asians. This donation was only a year after she made a $10 million pledge to the victims of Tsunami in India and Sri Lanka. Malini Saba serves as the chairperson of Saban. Malini was born, raised and attended schools in Perth. On completing her schooling, she moved to the USA and resided in San Francisco. Malini was a dedicated and skilled entrepreneur from her early years.

 

Malini took full advantage of every opportunity, which she came across when growing up and in school. In San Francisco, Malini enrolled for business classes, which she gave her full attention. She gained the relevant entrepreneurial skill set and knowledge about the various aspects of business. In school, Malini would make sure to attend every conference, which would offer opportunities to meet with successful investors and entrepreneurs. Because she had plans to start her own business venture, she took all the advice from successful businesspersons seriously and into practical use. Through the conferences at her school, Malini was able to create substantial links with other entrepreneurs. In over 25 successful years of business, Malini has been successful through capitalizing on the results of her market trend analysis.

Many people are attracted to the stock markets because they are positive that stocks hold the key to making a fortune without working very hard for it. I know this sounds crazy to many people but the facts are that this claim is mostly true. All you have to do to confirm it is to watch the stock market. At any point in a day, thousands of people are betting a stock will move up in price while thousands of other people are betting it will drop. Betting is actually an apt description of what is going on too because at the end of the day there will be some winners and some losers. It’s a zero sum gain activity for the majority of participants.

How are these people getting their information? This is another piece to the puzzle. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of so called “experts” picking which stocks to buy now because these “experts” are positive that their picks are good investments. But, are they? The answer is, probably not. In a recent article published in the Huffington Post, Dan Solin, a New York Times best-selling author wrote an article covering this very topic. IIn the article, Dan points out succinctly what the major forces at work in the markets are, especially in the area of stock “experts” picking the “right” stocks.

Doe Deere is a New York City based make-up artist, author and entrepreneur. She is most recognized for her vibrant and artistic style which helped launch the success of her internet makeup brand Lime Crime.

Doe Deere’s unique style and brand have been dubbed a fashion anomaly. Lime Crime has managed to make waves in the fashion industry since it’s introduction to the market in 2008. The brand was launched for online retail and was niched for the girl with a more dramatic taste. The brand focuses on the use of intense lip color and twisted patterns that create a bold look for any user. The company also prides itself on making cruelty-free vegan products.

The line was invented by Deere after she struggled to find a make-up line that matched her vibrant clothing style. Deere was designing, stitching, and selling garments on Ebay at the time and wanted to establish a make-up line that was just as expressive as the clothing she was selling. Finding herself at a dead-end, she introduced Unicorn Lipsticks as her first product under Lime Crime. The product was an instant success and prodded Deere to introduce additional lip products under the brand name.

While Lime Crime has been a tremendous success as a company, many people are interested in the mystery of the designer and owner, Doe Deere.

The journalists who have managed an interview with Deere have discovered that there is more than meets the eye with the young entrepreneur. Behind the glitz and the glam is a sensitive, hardworking businesswoman dedicated to her company and her people.

The young entrepreneur was born in Russia before relocating to New York City. While growing up in the Big Apple she was introduced to fashion and make-up and was instantly hooked. This introduction sparked her dive into online retail and the eventual development of Lime Crime.

Deere claims that her two passions are make-up and fairytales and promotes Lime Crime as a collision of these two things. She names her products and customers after fairytale themes and designs all of her make-up with a fairytale vision. Doe Deere admits that her passion for color stems from a very early age. She had always been into art and fashion and was always decorating herself with the most colorful ensembles as a child. She was quite imaginative and this side of her personality carries over into her work even today.

Deere’s work and entrepreneurship has not gone unrecognized. Most recently, she was named one of the top inspiring women entrepreneures by Self-Made magazine. While she appreciates the recognition, she is more interested in being a role model and example for any woman on a journey of entrepreneurship. Deere seeks to inspire women of all ages and interests but she seems to have a firm grip on the dreamers who are bold, brave, and dare to be different. Her story is one of hope for anyone looking to make their dreams a reality!

The Billionaire Champion for the Ukraine
The bio at the Syndicate Project for the billionaire columnist, George Soros, seems modest for a man trying to save the Ukraine and the European Union. He is a globally renowned business mogul, but he is best known for chairing and founding the Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundations. He’s had best selling novels about business and global financial markets, such as The Credit Crisis of 2008 and What it Means, The Alchemy of Finance and The Tragedy of the European Union.

He has been become more well known with the mainstream in the last few years with his outspoken beliefs and funding of liberal candidates and progressive issues for the United States and Europe. He has also been very outspoken about the European Union’s need to step up to the plate and help save the drowning Ukraine. He feels quite passionately about the country because of his work there in the 1980s and beyond. George Soros was a driving force in assisting countries in the transition to capitalism as communism was beginning to fail. The situation in the Ukraine, which has been ongoing for several years now, has Mr. Soros agitated.

The Financial Pain of the Ukraine
George Soros has been prolific in his intellectual contributions and financial advice about the Ukraine’s financial crisis and Russian problems. He outlined some of the issues in an article for the Wall Street Journal, which can be found in whole by clicking here. Around 2015, the Ukraine was having issues coming to reasonable terms with its creditors. In other words, the Ukraine could not pay back the money for all of the failed projects the International Monetary Fund gave loans it for, and its currency was becoming devalued from inflation because it perpetually owes money to the bond holders of its central bank. In addition to the debt problem, there has been noticeable encroachments made by the Russia Federation in the area, including the annexation of Crimea.

A Better Ukraine May Mean a Better Europe

When Scottish entrepreneur Brian Bonar set out to design and create the kind of restaurant he would want to go to, he didn’t think he would be running it himself someday. But that is exactly what happened when head chef Patrick Ponsanty left to start his own place in Escondido.
This San Diego area restaurant stands out from the usual Southern California offerings in that it is a top quality traditional French restaurant in a simple, ordinary location. This restaurant focus on substance more than it does style. One critic, in Modern Luxury San Diego called it refreshing like finding “the Beatles playing a set at your local roadhouse”.

Since the exit of Ponsanty, this high quality restaurant, has continued to impress and wow its guests. Under the capable direction, the restaurant continues to serve high cuisine such as Suzie’s Farm beet sorbet with filaments of watercress and a disk of goat cheese, wild hare, Spanish bore, and canales from Boudreaux and macaroons for dessert. While elegant, the menu is still approachable, and does not leave diners put off by its exoticism.  Learn more about Brian Bonar: http://people.equilar.com/bio/brian-bonar-trucept–inc./salary/470203

The quality and substance of the cuisine is not to be doubted. It is this menu that won the Bellamy, and its then head chef Ponsanty the coveted Meilleurs Ouvrier de France in 2012. Bellamy is only one 10 California restaurants to ever win the award of which only one other is in San Diego.

The restaurant has not suffered under Bellamy. In fact, it could even be said that it has improved. Brian Bonar used his considerable skills as a financier and entrepreneur to find the right people to run and create his dream restaurant. Those skills have allowed Bellamy to continue to appeal to its guests, creating many fans and regulars out of San Diego natives and visitors alike.

As for Bonar himself, he has an just as impressive a resume as the restaurant that he built and currently runs. Bonar’s background is in finance, and he has proven himself to be an expert in this field. Currently, Bonar spends most of his time and energy at Trucept, a company that focuses on temporary staffing, where he is CEO.

He then went on to continue his studies with a Masters in Engineering at Stafford College. Upon graduating, he began to translate this skills to the finance industry and entrepreneurship by working as a Procurement Manager at IBM.

Human rights is a very beautiful thing to have. However, it is also a very easy thing to lose. There is always someone who wants to challenge the rights of others. It is up to people to continue to fight for their rights so that they don’t have them taken away. In many cases, people can’t stand without help. For citizens of tyrannical countries, there are human rights activists that are fighting to raise more awareness of the inhumane living conditions of certain countries. They are also trying to help with finding a way to get rid of the tyrannical rule that plagues the country. Among the most effective human rights activist is Thor Halvorssen.

Thor Halvorssen is one of the prominent activists in the fight for human rights. He is in fact becoming the new face of human rights activism. One thing to notice about him is that he does not fit the common stereotype of human rights activism. He is very passionate and enthusiastic. He also has a love for people. This goes without saying. If one has a love for human beings, he would want everyone to have equal rights. Thor continues to fight passionately for the rights for others.

Among the violators of human rights that Thor Halvorssen is taking on is North Korea, which is currently being run by the Kim Dynasty. Thor himself is deeply involved in the fight for human rights. He often takes some of the punishment that other victims of human rights violations take. Thor accepts it as part of the deal. He understands that it is important for a human rights activist to be able to roll up his sleeves and get himself dirty. Thor does see a long war to fight when it comes to providing more human rights for others that are in countries that are not so free.

For a lot of business people, finding the time to be successful in business can be a full-time pursuit. It isn’t always written in stone that just because you are working long hours trying to fulfill your dream that you will actually get there.

So it is refreshing to see that some entrepreneurs like Mark Sparks have not only crossed the goal line with several of their businesses, they have turned community service into a social science by creating incentive for social service workers to get out and try and receive funding for the ideas that they want to see enacted.

A base in making social services work

Mark Sparks has a history of working within the community to promote change. While he was growing his businesses several years ago, he decided to spend time with his family refurbishing and upgrading a community center that provides shelter and relief for those that do not have what they need economically.

The net result was a type of business that was dedicated solely to the community- one that has created a lot of positive change.

Spark Tank Begins

From that experience, taking a community center that needed guidance and turning it into a showpiece that is optimized to serve more people than ever, Mark Sparks decided to put together a competition for funding among social service people. Known as Spark Tank, the idea was straight-forward: every social service person that worked for a charity or non-profit that wanted funding could submit an application that detailed what they wanted and why.

They would compete with each other in front of a panel of judges for funding money that would be disbursed to the winners. Learn more about Marc Sparks: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/9661324.Marc_Sparks and https://angel.co/marcsparks3

The first round of the competition has already been completed, several non-profits entered and the competition was strong for the initial $5000 check.

A winner emerges

The first round winner ended up being a non-profit that focuses on helping take care of the dogs of people that are alcoholics or addicted to drugs. Too often, when someone is going through a disease or addiction, the pets that are there for companionship suffer and are not taken care of at all.

By taking care of the animals until the person has completed rehabilitation, the animals are able to continue with their lives without being subjected to cruel treatment. Read more:  Marc Sparks – Dallas, Texas, United States, Timber Creek Capital

The other two finalists in the first round also focused on helping homeless or addicted people.

Going forward

As the first round of Spark Tank was a success, the team has committed to two more rounds this year in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The hope is that they will continue to energize people working in social services to innovate in their own agencies. With continued success, the concept may even become regional in nature.
