It all started in 2002, when Hussain Sajwani turned a simple brainstorming idea into a profit structure. The idea was to invest in developing properties in Dubai. He launched his development plan like an epic adventure, and it turned out far better than he could have imagine. With the initial success of that first project, Hussain Sajwani saw that he could change underdeveloped land into sprawling luxury. That first 3 story apartment building had interested buyers, before ground even broke on the project. Because of this, Hussain Sajwani realized that he had a knack for land development and founded his own company, DAMAC Properties.
DAMAC Properties main headquarters is in Dubai and the company specializes in high-end luxury commercial and residential buildings. Since the first apartment building in Dubai, DAMAC has expanded to other regions, these include Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and North Africa and Qatar, and Lebanon. The single idea behind DAMAC Properties was to develop luxury real estate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Hussain Sajwani joined with the business mogul, Donald Trump in 2013 to build two luxury golf courses. The resulting project collaboration opened to the public in February 2017, The Trump International Golf Course Dubai. Now that the conceptual golf course has been completed, Hussain Sajwani has moved to second part of his business deal with a course designed by Tiger Woods called, the Trump World Golf Course; which is scheduled to open in February 2018.
Although, ideally the partnership with Donald Trump has been successful thus far, future development deals will have to wait, since now President Trump has divested himself of the interest in his real estate empire. But, on the business front Hussain has more than property development on his mind. He also participates in donor gift giving, helping several organizations. The highest profile philanthropic gift that he has given to date was one million dollars to “the UAE Compassion Campaign.” The Compassion Campaign is geared towards rendering assistance to refugees in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon. Additionally, DAMAC has provided philanthropic support for the volunteer humanitarian efforts of the UAE Red Crescent Society.

Victoria Doramus, a marketing trend analyst, is a former drug addict who is helping change the lives of victims of the same in society. She hopes to establish an institution that focuses on helping recovering drug addicts in New York. Victoria says that the center will operate based on the 12 principles that helped her work out the problem in the Burning Tree.
Victoria Doramus checked into the first rehabilitation center, Tucson in Arizona in 2016 and did a program for 45 days and learned a lot more about herself instead of the disease she had. The market strategist did not see any progress, and she checked into the second rehabilitation in Connecticut for 60 days with the hope of recovering and showing her mother that she could handle herself.
In January 2017, she flew to Texas and enrolled for a wellness program at the Burning Tree, a foundation that used the 12 steps of drug recovery and a NO-BS recovery approach to help its patients get better. The center’s everyday routine was scheduled to start at 5:45 in the morning with prayers and meditation. Everyone had an allocated chore that they would later work on ranging from moving the lawn to cleaning the kitchen. Later they would all attend mandatory sessions that were meant to help them accept their situations and try to improve bad habits that were draining them. Then they would end the day with AA meetings that were sessions to connect with God.
Having left the institution in August with nothing, Victoria Doramus got a job to help her raise money and eventually flew to New York. She immediately joined Nonprofit organizations working to change the lives of drug addicts as a volunteer. Victoria says change is a process that begins from within and anyone can change if they set their mind.
Aloha construction has been in the industry for a long time now. They have grown from a small family-owned roofing company serving the residents of Southern Wisconsin to a general contractor that now serves residents of Cook, Lake McHenry, and DuPage counties.

They are also well adept in almost all roofing materials available in the market today and have been able to form working relationships with material suppliers to ensure that their clients always get the best bargains for the same. Roofing and gutters go hand in hand, and this is something aloha construction understands all too well. Gutters not only serve an aesthetic value but are the key to ensuring houses do not get water damage. Storm water if not drained properly has the ability to damage a house and expose it to mold easily. It’s thus paramount to the contractor handling the same to be competent. Aloha construction was recently awarded the BBB Torch award for ethics. This award is given to organizations that exhibit an extraordinary level of integrity and professionalism. This is just another in their list of awards, and the CEO has promised only to lead the company to greater heights. This will be achieved through improved cooperation with clients as well as taking on more corporate social responsibilities.
Since the field of medical aesthetics is growing so rapidly there are many professionals who are looking to find their own type of niche within the industry. “A Glimpse into What Drives Atlanta Entrepreneur Dr. Mark McKenna” talks about how this doctor’s motivation towards greatness is helping him to create his own category within the genre. Dr. Mark McKenna is well known as a doctor-entrepreneur. He uses his superb medical knowledge to help make business decisions that payback in exponential dividends. The work he has done in both the business and medical world are exceptional.
His newest endeavor is that of OVME. This company is unique in the fact that it helps change the way that medical aesthetics are being offered to clients. OVME is pronounced “of me” for a reason. It is a company that is aimed at providing an experience that is completely personalized for the client. They are looking for ways to increase the accessibility and convenience of this field. Dr. Mark McKenna and his colleagues understand that many people live busy lives where they are not able to meet their elective needs on their schedule. While elective would seem to indicate that these are not pressing matters, clients can become on edge when they are not able to properly schedule these procedures. For many of them, these electives situations help increase their overall quality of life and they want to find a way to incorporate them into their schedules as quickly as possible.
So, Dr. Mark McKenna’s motivation towards greatness is patient care. He has a profound sense of empathy that allows him to tap into what clients need to be happy. He wants them to feel as though they are in an environment that is very close to their own homes. They should not feel as though they are in a cold and clinical environment when they are talking about their own personal healthcare needs. He wants to be an advocate for his clients and push a standard of care within the industry of medicine and aesthetics that will hopefully be replicated in many offices across America.
Shervin Pishevar, one of the prominent person in the investment industry has been analyzing almost all the sectors in the United States while at the same time touching on significant international policies that touch the country’s political class. The Uber investor has gone silent for some time now, which caught people by surprise after he entertained his followers in more than 21 hours of constant tweeting. Well, he rested during the dinner and continued his exposure in the next day touching on, one of the core issues, trade between the United States and China.
In his open and candid tweets, Shervin Pishevar indicated that the United States will lose to now one of the largest emerging economy, China, around the world. Although this has been touched sparingly by most pundits and political class in the last few years, nobody has come so openly to the point that the United States will lose to China. Many are wondering what insight Shervin Pishevar to comment on such issues while fully understanding that the country has established itself in the world as the largest economy.
However, nobody should ignore him. Being a professional investor, Shervin Pishevar might have seen what many people have seen. One of the issues he pointed out is that China is building more and modern infrastructure as compared to the United States. This is true and can be verified by anyone who might be interested in determining the authenticity of this statement. Despite building large and infrastructures in its cities and rural areas, China is doing the same in Africa through debt-funded projects.
In recent times, most of the African countries have turned to China as the source of aid abandoning the traditional donors who mostly included the United States and some European countries. This is a cause for alarm that policymakers and government should highlight an urgent matter of priority. The same investments that people are witnessing in the healthcare industry, amounting to more than $300 trillion, should be diverted to the infrastructure industry. Old railway lines should be face-lifted to increase their cargo holding capacity. Besides, the donation policy and the foreign policies should be reviewed to attract growing countries to seek a donation from the United States.
The emergence of financial technology companies, or commonly referred to as FinTech, has taken the financial industry by the storm. FinTech utilizes technology and innovations to improve financial activities up to the point where traditional financial services will walk the way of the dinosaurs. GreenSky Credit was established in 2006 and has become one of the largest FinTech companies in the United States. Co-founder and CEO David Zalik has turned his tech-based lending firm into a multi-billion dollar company. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, GreenSky Credit offers its services to help fund a wide variety of home improvement projects and healthcare related issues that are not covered by the customer’s insurance. GreenSky Credit has provided reliable payment solutions to over a million consumers and had funded well over 12 billion loans since its inception.
CEO David Zalik has worked in the banking industry for years. His savvy idea for GreenSky Credit was brought into existence after the realization that home remodeling contractors were the key to one of the nation’s most lucrative markets, homeowners. Mr. Zalik, a high school dropout turned self-made billionaire, remarkably started his company in his own basement. The company’s straightforward mobile app and its overall services had become a go-to for many contractors across the nation. GreenSky soon shot up in the ranks as one of America’s most valuable FinTech operations.
The company has partnered with 14 large financial institutions including Regions, Fifth Third and SunTrust. The entire operation works by transferring a chunk of the risk and work to affiliated parties, all the while profiting from both sides involved in the deal. Basically, every time a home improvement contractor successfully markets a loan to a homeowner, GreenSky will receive roughly 6 percent of that loan amount. The company is recognized for its ability to service customers who desire smaller amounts than what atraditional bank would typically lend. David Zalik believes that his scalable business will continue to increase its loan volume by the end of the year.
Charity in America is on the rise. There is a pattern of corporate America to reinvest in the communities that made their company’s success. One of the pioneers of such a trend is stream energy. Stream energy believes that it is a just good business to help those who of health debt. The company has created an entire division dedicated to providing charitable donations to those in the charitable branch of stream energy is called stream cares. This branch has done a lot to relieve the suffering of their fellow man. Stream energy has often been on the forefronts of such efforts. For instance, stream energy was quick to respond to the victims after hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey hit Dallas Texas with such force that it took the nation by surprise. Millions of people were suddenly wading through feet of water and struggling. The rising water didn’t mean inconvenience, immense the destruction of millions of dollars of infrastructure as well as personal property. As the city quickly became a giant lake many people found that simply surviving through the event was getting more difficult. Meeting one’s basic needs in such event is incredibly difficult and there are long-term effects to this destruction. After the flood waters received many businesses have to close their doors. These businesses sometimes are only close temporarily for repair but often can close up for good. This fits millions of people a lot of work and makes the process of recovering incredibly more difficult.
Stream cares quickly jumped into the arena to provide relief for victims of the hurricane. This is not, their only effort to help those in need. Stream energy has dedicated itself it’s time to helping children in need. Stream cares has begun a project that aids homeless children with the various needs as well as gives them the opportunity to go to a local water park. For many homeless children, this is the first and potentially only time not forget such a treat. By creating this once-in-a-lifetime event for these children they believe that it will give them at least a day that they don’t have to worry. Instead, these children can focus on just being children for that day.
Even though the stock market has been following bullish trends for several years, Sahm Adrangi and his team at Kerrisdale Capital believe that fundamental investing is still a good way to go with proper research and analysis. Sahm Adrangi states that they have not had a lot of difficulties while picking good stocks for long-term investing while also shorting stocksthat he sees as headed towards a downward trend. Despite some rather mechanical approaches that many investors have been following as of late, Kerrisdale is still sticking with the methods that have worked for them in the past.
Currently, Kerrisdale and Sahm Adrangi have shown an interest in shorting the stocks of the pharmaceutical research company Proteostasis. The Phase 2 data for one of their drugs that are still in the research and testing phases does not appear to be everything that the company is promising according to the investment firm. This is why they have chosen to take a short position on the stock as they believe that the4 gains that the company has experienced lately will surely reverse themselves quickly once the truth of the drug comes out to the public.
Additionally, the company has presented research and evidence that indicates that the land development company St. Joe’s is not going to be able to deliver on the promises that they have made to their investors concerning a large area of land in Florida. While St. Joe’s may have seen a decent amount of success while developing beachfront land, the land that is in question is almost entirely swampland and is not in a convenient location to the many attractions that draw people to the state of Florida. Their shareholders have been waiting patiently for years according to Sahm Adrangi, but he doesn’t believe that any amount of waiting will allow them to see a significant return on their investments as they had been promised by the company. When releasing their short stances on companies, Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale Capital have extensive research to back up their claims. They have absolutely no problem releasing it to the public as they have in the past.
