Another great way to partake in National Coffee Day is to eat foods that are coffee-enhanced. Consumers can enjoy coffee jelly, coffee olive oil, coffee bread, coffee syrup, or coffee ice cream.

Robert Deignan: How to Thrive in Business

Robert Deignan knows how to become successful in the tough American market. As the chief executive officer of a company called ATS Digital Services, the businessman knows what it takes for an individual to make it in the tough environment. Robert Deignan co-founded this company with the help of a friend, and he has been offering digital support to customers in the local and international market. To become a successful individual in the current world, the businessman advises everyone to use the following tips:

Follow your Gut

Regardless of the size of the business you are about to start, it is important to trust all your instincts. As an investor, it is your role to sit down and analyze every negative and positive feature about the idea you about to bring into the market. For many years, the businessman has been following this inner feeling, and most of the times, he finds it to be correct. When taking on this route, it is always important to have discipline and courage so that you remain focused and in the right path. Sometimes you will realize that following your decision will be hard, but always trust yourself. Hesitating, according to Robert Deignan, is one of the most dangerous things in business. Decision making in business needs to be undertaken at the right time.

Don’t choose to work with the people who are close to you

Robert Deignan has been successful, but he has also learned his lessons in a hard way. Having people who are close to you is a way of failing in business. Sometimes, people are tempted to employ the people who are close to them in their company. This idea, however, can be too risky for a business, whether it is new or thriving in the market. When the people who are working in your business are close to you, your judgment, in most cases, will be clouded. Friends and family should always have a position in your life, not in your business. These are the relationships that will only destroy the business. People who are not related to you will respect your business and give you the best.

Winning the Junk Email Fight

We have all had the problem of going through our mailbox to find ir filled with junk. Some of it is spam others are things that we have signed for to at one time that proved to be worthless. Jojo Hedaya is working to win the battle over junk email. He noticed the problem when is partner was not answering his emails. The response was that he could not find them amongst all the other emails he was getting. This led to the creation of the website unroll.me.

Jojo Hedaya; the co-founder of unroll.me along with his partner Josh Rosenwald at age 24, took on the problem of junk email. Unroll.me goes through your email subscriptions allowing you to easily unsubscribe to things you don’t want. It does require you to give them permission to go through your email, but in most cases it is not a problem. First of all, no one is personally going through your email but there is an algorithm that checks for subscriptions. The list of your subscriptions comes to your mailbox once a day at the time you set.

Jojo was born on December 30th, 1989. They both attended Jewish high schools. He attended college but did not actually graduate but switched between two different schools. They started to unroll.me in 2012 and it has been doing quite well with it. At that time they put all of their resources into the project not knowing if it would work or not. Neither one of them would advise a young person to dropout of college and try to start a business but in their case, it worked out.

Their main advice is that it is important that you learn a skill, that you can market and bring to whoever you work for. They both think that it is best to do what you love and if that means starting a business then go ahead and start a business. If it is easier to do what you want to do while working for someone else go ahead and do so.

The powers have given Randal Nardone a competitive advantage over other CEOs and COOs from other companies as he understands the limits to which legal procedures should be followed, even when the company is challenged with legal suits.

Randal Nardone was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of Fortress in 2013, where he was given overall-head roles such as being in charge of all the legal and financials of the company. It was a natural role for Randal as he was a legal expert.

Randal came up with business strategies for Fortress Investment Group that led to the company’s success. His influence on the decision making processes was partly out of the experience he had while holding executive positions in the law firms that he worked for, as well as his excellent leadership skills.

CEO Randal Nardone Continues to Lead the Fortress Investment Group

Mr. Mudd’s decision was dictated by personal matters that demanded all of his present attention. Randal Nardone is a co-founder of the Fortress Investment Group LLC, along with Rob Kauffman and Wes Edens. The threesome founded the Fortress Investment Group LLC in 1998 and became the three Principals of the firm.

In December of 2017, the SoftBank Group, a Japanese tech-to-telecoms group, acquired the Fortress Investment Group for $3.3 billion. In spite of this fact, Randal Nardone continues to serve as the Chief Executive Officer for the Fortress Investment Group. The reason that this is so is because the Trump administration has place strict restrictions on the ability of foreign corporations to both acquire and run American companies. For the SoftBank Group to even acquire the Fortress Investment Group, it must first receive the approval of the CFIUS, which would only approve the acquisition if the SoftBank Group agreed to renounce the day-to-day control over the Fortress Investment Group’s business operations. The Fortress Investment Group’s expertise in the alternative asset investment industry was so desired by the SoftBank Group that it assented to CFIUS’s mandate.

Shervin Pishevar’s Tweets Are Not So Strange Now That The Stock Market Is Imploding

The largest one point-drop in Stock Market history happened in February 2018. And the third largest one-point drop happened in November 2018 when the market slide by more than 840 points. That decline shocked most investors. But Shervin Pishevar, the hedge fund investor behind Hyperloop One, Uber, Warby Parker, and Airbnb knew it was coming. Pishevar told investors to be careful when he spent 21-hours on Twitter warning investors of the investment challenges in 2018 and beyond.

Last March, when Donald Trump was riding high after a tax overhaul that reduced the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, investors thought Trump was an economic and investment savior. But as his tax cut plan started to take shape, investors knew the benefits of the tax cut wouldn’t trickle down to middle America. Economists now say Trump’s tax cuts will hurt more than help investors in 2019. But Shervin Pishevar knew Trump was just giving his rich friends a break without addressing what the cuts would do to the national debt.

Shervin Pishevar sent more than 50 tweets last March during his tweetstorm. He warned investors about a Bitcoin collapse. And he warned investors about the bond market. He also sent a tweet that predicted the overvalue market situation that investors face now. Shervin warned investors about inflation, and he warned investors that the Feds quantitative easing plan wasn’t going to help investors make any money in 2019.

Unemployment figures hide the fact that highly educated workers are taking low-paying jobs, but it does make the unemployment figures look good. Everything that Trump talks about in a positive way, isn’t that positive for investors, according to Shervin Pishevar. And now that some of his tweet predictions are coming to the surface, Pishevar has gained some of his credibility back in the angel investment world. But that doesn’t make things easier for investors who want to produce income in 2019.

Pishevar’s tweetstorm prediction didn’t make sense at the beginning of 2018. Pishevar didn’t send those tweets to scare investors. He sent them so investors could find assets that will protect them when the Trump train hits a wall in 2019.

Stream Energy Featured on Patch for their Philanthropy

Few natural catastrophes have been as devastating as hurricane Harvey was to the country. The storm left behind catastrophic destruction of property, people were removed from their homes, and many fatalities were recorded. Many philanthropists came forward to address the calamity. However, one of the few that stood out in their efforts to restore hope to the victims of the catastrophe was Stream Energy. Their efforts were even recorded on Patch. The role of the energy sales company was to help the victims of the hurricane cope with the financial burden which they left behind, and they have managed to reduce instances of homelessness in Dallas and other hard-hit areas.

Stream Energy spokesperson states that it has always been their tradition to help people in sticky situations. Their charity, known as streams cares, is in place to try and reach even more people affected by the storm. The name of their charity, Stream Cares may be new, but their activities have been going on for the past 12 years. The company is an accurate reflection of how those who have the ability and have drawn their success from the community, can use the same resources to enrich and empower the same community during their time of need.

What sets Stream Energy apart from the other companies which have existed before is that they have separated the charity part of the organization from the rest of the business entity. As a result, the activities of the charity are run independently, which increases their effectiveness. The company is, therefore, breaking new ground as far as corporate social investment is concerned in Dallas, and they hope to extend this to other cities.

Stream Energy has formed partnerships with other entities in a bid to reach their agenda. For instance, they have been able to collaborate with the Red Cross and the habitat for humanity, and both companies have been instrumental in helping them cover more ground in charity work. Stream also partnered with an organization called Hope to provide diapers and other support to new and nursing mothers. Given time, this organization is going to transform the world of philosophy completely.

Immigrants like Doe Deere see a Version of America that Born Citizens often Overlook…

It’s no secret that born citizens often take the North American continent for granted. Immigrants like Doe Deere, the founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics, happen to see America differently. The title of her most recent piece in Entrepreneur magazine suggests something simple enough; nobody can come along and make America great as it was already great all along! Deere and many others from countries such as Russia seem to view the country in such a light even when the odds are stacked against them.

Like Doe discussed, many immigrants migrate over with visions of Hollywood movie scenes playing in their heads. When they see our real-life cities, they are typically nothing like what was presented within the popular media presentations. Deere contrasts the real-life NYC, that she experienced for the first time at age 17, with the city she imagined while consuming all those books, movies and magazines as a Jewish child living in Russia.

Doe’s story is not unlike those told by other immigrants. After learning how America differed from its media representation, the family soon went broke. What we see during this next part of her story is a theme that is all too common within these stories; Doe’s mother had an accounting degree that the US was reluctant to accept! Because of this, she was forced to remain underemployed cleaning the homes of others.

As you can probably imagine, the cleaning job doesn’t tide them over for long. The family eventually goes entirely broke and must live off of soup kitchens and shelters until they eventually have the cash flow to live in a low income, urban area. The crime is only briefly mentioned by the author, however. In much greater detail she outlines how much the family appreciated having their own apartment with their very own kitchen!

Doe’s story is certainly an aspiring one. As she is wrapping up she ponders how somebody that was once homeless could employ almost 40 people and become a CEO. Mrs. Deere has certainly proven why the immigrant viewpoint/attitude seems to produce a lot more business owners than the viewpoint/attitude that is all too common among born citizens.

Meet Dr. Eric Forsthoefel

Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is one of the most promising young ER physicians in the Southeastern United States. Educated at the University of Louisville and Louisiana State University, he has practiced in both Louisiana and Florida. Unlike many physicians, Dr. Forsthoefel has a broad background. In addition to understanding biological sciences, he also has a BS in Religion Studies. This has improved his ability to communicate and understand with average working people. Dr. Forshoefel is board certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.

Since 2012, when he started his residency, Dr. Forsthoefel has seen a lot. In the world of emergency medicine, everything can change in an instant. What was a slow day can quickly become a very busy one. During his career, Dr. Forsthoefel has learned to think on his feet and triage cases as best he can. He has become an expert at acute care, treating people with a variety of illnesses and traumas. He has diagnosed and treated broken bones and deep cuts. Dr. Forsthoefel is also experienced when it comes to cardiovascular issues like heart attack, stroke and more.

Dr. Forsthoefel practices at an emergency room in Tallahassee. During his time there, he has become a valued member of the local medical community. Though he focuses mostly on patient care, Dr. Eric Forsthoefel has also become something of an advocate for reform. He has noticed that many people in his community have come to rely on emergency rooms for situations that aren’t emergencies. This can create some real problems at his workplace.

To Dr. Forsthoefel, the issue isn’t that patients are being wasteful, or that they’re misinformed. The problem is overwhelmingly that people lack access to proper primary medical care. With access to a good primary physician or urgent care, people would be able to deal with small issues like ear infections and sprains without going to the ER. However, the way that the healthcare and insurance systems work in the United States can make it difficult for people to access or afford that kind of treatment.

Emergency rooms are required to treat every patient who presents. Dr. Forsthoefel has no problem with this. In fact, he always makes it a point to offer the best possible care to everyone. He tries to offer good customer service in addition to good medical care and advice. However, the strain on the resources at his emergency department is serious. Wait times are long. Another problem is that many of the patients who present are indigent. Because they can’t pay for services, prices for other patients necessarily go up to cover these costs. The middle class is getting squeezed; Dr. F sees this every day.

Dr. Forsthoefel is still in the first phase of his career. As the decades go on, he hopes to remain a force for good in the world of emergency medicine. His community of Tallahassee is also important to him. His patients appreciate the level of service he provides. He hopes to get even better with time.
