Keith Mann: Battling For The Good Cause

In today’s world, nothing is going to happen unless someone goes out there and makes something happen. That is truly the law of the land. Things do not fall into people’s laps and things do not happen by mistake. When it comes to the success of Keith Mann at Dynamics Search Partners, it has not been overnight. He has worked long hours, stayed up late, and he has put in all of the time to make it happen. As with anything in life, it is all about being prepared. The more prepared someone is for something, the better chance they have of having success in that particular field.

 

It is the same for the children that are attending school at the Uncommon School Districts. They have to work hard if they want to make something out of their lives. However, they have an inner drive in them. When someone has had to live in a rough situation or they have to deal with a lot of roadblocks in order to have success, it molds them, without a shadow of a doubt. These kids are wise beyond this years because they have seen a lot and experienced a lot in their young lives. In many cases, they have had to step up before they were ready.

 

That is why Keith Mann holds fundraisers for the Uncommon School Districts and this most recent one raised over twenty-two thousand dollars. He knows this is money they need and this is money that is going to impact them in ways they never thought possible. For these kids, they thought that going to a four-year college was only a pipe dream and it would never actually happen for them. However, now they are seeing there are good people out there that want to see them succeed and want to see them grow. They are battling for them because they believe in them. It is a powerful thing when someone believes in someone. Wonderful things can come out of that and it can really open a ton of doors for them in their futures. They will never forget this good deed and they will pay it forward.

Find the Light with Kabbalah

What is Kabbalah? Whether you just learned about Kabbalah or have been wondering about it for years, many people are curious about it. Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that serves as a spiritual supplement to every (or no) religion. It is based on the Jewish faith but students need not have a background in Judaism to study Kabbalah. Translated as “to receive,” Kabbalah teaches its students about how the universe works and how to receive real fulfillment in their lives. Studying Kabbalah helps us make sense of our place in the world and work through the chaos that plagues many of our lives.

In order to achieve true happiness and fulfillment, Kabbalah teaches that we must leave our comfort zones. When we get out of our selfish “rut” and show kindness to all people, we will finally know life as the Creator meant it for us. When things are going wrong, Kabbalah gives you the tools to be your best self and create positive change in your life.

The Kabbalah Centre was founded in 1984 by Phillip and Karen Berg. The Centre’s headquarters are now located in Los Angeles but there are over 50 branches around the world, including major locations in Toronto, London, and New York City. A number of celebrities have been associated with the Kabbalah Centre. Singer and actress Madonna is the most devoted celebrity student, as she has changed her lifestyle to fit Kabbalah’s teachings and she frequently studies with her own personal Kabbalah Centre rabbi.

There are so many ways to study with the Kabbalah Centre. If you live in a city with a branch nearby, check out the Centre’s many events and lectures. Enroll in courses and classes both in-person and online. More independent or advanced students can read the Centre’s many publications or visit their online museum to study ancient Kabbalistic texts. For more individual attention, sign up for the Kabbalah Centre’s mentor program or study one-on-one with a rabbi.

The Deere Philosophy: Follow Your Gut

Ranked as one of the Top Inspiring Female Entrepreneurs, Doe Deere is aiming to make dreams come true through her company, Lime Crime. The whimsical entrepreneur helps women and girls follow their dreams and express themselves, unapologetically with bright, fun colors. The Queen of Unicorns (with an international fan following), launched her cruelty-free makeup line, Lime Crime Cosmetics in 2008.

Working closely with a chemist, the Russian-born, New York-raised, beauty executive develops a magical line of highly pigmented lipsticks, eye shadows, and nail polishes. As one of the first cosmetics companies to sell cosmetics online, Lime Crime continuously pushes the envelope to make e-commerce shopping a fun experience for their customers. In fact, it led the way in designing the online lipstick swatch, which has now become an industry standard.

 

The name Lime Crime is the result of an accidental purpose. An excited Deere came up with the name ‘limecrime’ while registering her e-commerce store to sell her DIY fashion line on eBay. The color lime reminds her of her favorite color (bright green). The word crime came about as she started thinking about her dream and a funny thought popped into her head—wearing the vibrant shades of lipsticks, eye shadows, and nail polish might be considered a crime in some circles. Plus, the two words rhymed, which fit right into Deere’s empowerment philosophy.

 

Today, the name is the guiding force for the company, encouraging women to color outside the lines. Deere tries out all the products herself before sending them to production to ensure her customer’s have a genuine Lime Crime experience.

 

Deere often speaks at events like the PHAMExpo to explain the details of this color revolution and the power that comes along with being true to one’s self. As a woman who started a business on her own terms, she knows that women are most successful when they find their own voice. It is one of the reasons her makeup line has names like “No She Didn’t” to describe blue lipstick. She advises women to, “Stay true to your vision, no matter how odd it might be. Don’t be afraid to be different and stick out, and you’ll succeed.”

 

Strategic Operations In Regional Banking

Banking is one of the most important functions in society. No matter the size or popularity of the financial institution, Banks give people a safer way for retaining hard earned funds, provide loans, advisory services, and many more. The Texas Bankers Association held it’s 5th annual event on November 7th of 2016 that Nexbank attended. This event is an actual conference type of forum for professional advisors, consultants, and bank leaders of the banking industry.

Regional Banking with Nexbank is just as efficient and progressive as International Banking in today’s time. This yearly event is all about strategy or strategic opportunities. Being in such a competitive field, regional banks have to stay up-to-date with industry trends and concepts. Innovation is the key and in this ever growing market, banks will need to stay competitive by offering clients/individuals some of the best innovative features of the 21st Century.

NexBank Capital Inc. was well represented this year as company President and (CEO) John Holt served as one of this prestigious event’s panelists. This is a great place for exploring organic growth, branches, and strategic opportunities in banking, but here’s a little more information on (NCI). NexBank is one of Texas’ most prominent financial facilities as well as one of it’s most successful. As of June 2016, this bank reported $3.5 Billion in total assets. President John Holt has the strenuous task of keeping this organization on point and with such successful financial records, NexBank’s growth will surely continue well into the future. Another aspect to why the bank is so popular is that it implements customized financial services. With this style of modern banking, NexBank is fully in-tuned with life in this digitally advanced age.

Along with properties that Jason Halpern has in New York City, he also has properties in New York state.

That means that he needs to have many more of these to be able to have the same amount of capital as what he has in the properties in New York City. He knows that he can succeed with these properties, though, and he always makes sure that he does that in the area that he is in.
