Hussain Sajwani: Dubai Real Estate Tycoon

Hussain Sajwani is the founder and Chairman of the luxury real estate development agency DAMAC Properties, located in Dubai. DAMAC has made an impressive statement in the real estate industry with their glamorous advertisement perks, including brand new Bentley’s with a new apartment buyer’s agreement! But, Hussain Sajwani has not always been in a glitzy billion dollar business position.

With humble beginnings in the food service industry, Hussain Sajwani worked to expand his revenue and reach a larger, more profitable clientele, going as far as working with the American military during Desert Storm. Hussain Sajwani felt that he needed a more profitable margin that he wouldn’t be able to accomplish in the food service industry.

He continued in food until 2001 when Dubai began to allow foreigners to own property. Since his entrance into real estate business, Hussain Sajwani has made immense strides towards success, including teaming with American President Donald Trump on new projects in Dubai.

For many years, DAMAC Owner Hussain Sajwani has had close business ties with Donald Trump and his real estate firm, The Trump Organization. DAMAC, along with the Trump family, have come together to develop two Trump-branded golf courses in Dubai.

Due to speculation by the American people, the Trump family, consisting of wife Ivanka, daughter and two sons, handle the majority of business transactions between the Trump Organization and DAMAC. Read more: Hussain Sajwani | Forbes and Hussain Sajwani | Twitter

DAMAC Owner Hussain Sajwani started in food service and has worked for years now to build his billion dollar real estate business.

With elaborate and extensive advertising, collaborating with large scale companies like Versace and having a business contact list the world could envy, Hussain Sajwani is a force to be reckoned with in the real estate industry of not only Dubai, but the world!

Jeunesse Global spreads American Dream throughout the world

Health and beauty entrepreneurs Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis had spent a lifetime creating and building some of the most successful and innovative businesses in the industry. The couple had reached their late-60s, looking back on a lifetime of successful entrepreneurship and meeting market needs with skill and passion. Now, Ray and Lewis believed that they wanted to finally hang up their hats and enjoy a life of retirement, spending more time with each other and the couple’s many grandchildren.

But after only a couple of weeks of loafing around their pristine Florida mansion, Ray and Lewis quickly realized that it was the rush, thrill and challenge of the entrepreneurial life that filled them with meaning. They quickly vetoed retirement, setting up yet another health and beauty company from their garage. But this time, the goals would be very different for their new company. The couple had long ago reached a level of financial independence that would give them a top-tier lifestyle without the need to ever work another day in their lives.

Talkspace: Innovative Messaging Application

Communication has been an essential part of our daily lives in the 21st century. People would always need to connect online so that they can talk to their friends and family. There are also some applications which are designed to meet certain needs of an individual, just like Talkspace which allows someone to speak with their therapists using an app. Talkspace was designed so that people who are having issues with visiting a therapist can just talk to them online. Some people lack the confidence to speak with a real therapist, and they believe that by using Talkspace, they could be able to express what they have in mind without limiting themselves just because they are shy.

The number of Talkspace users around the world is constantly increasing. Some of those who have downloaded the application stated that they downloaded it because they do not have the time to visit their therapist, and it is very convenient to use. Time and money are also saved once the app is downloaded. On the therapist’s part, they stated that they would be downloaded the app because they know that their patients are getting better if they would be talking to them whatever platform is available. The app is similar to Snapchat, but it is somehow controversial because of how it is being used to speak with a therapist. Still, people are enjoying using it.

In Talkspace, people can send messages, photos, and audios to one another. Using Talkspace can ease the burden of speaking, and according to some therapists, some people effectively communicate using only photos, and they are fine with that. These people are having a hard time expressing and explaining themselves if they talk face to face, so using the app would help them describe how they feel. The therapists are also stating that it is vital for someone to respond to the messages that they are receiving because when they reply back to the sender, they somehow feel appreciated. This is good, according to the therapists, especially if someone is going to serious treatment and medication. Talkspace is the future of communication, and many people are starting to like it.
