This top-rated company was honored with the prestigious Torch Award in 2017. If there is one company that deserves this award, then it is surely this one. The Torch Award is sponsored and is presented by the Better Business Bureau, and it goes to companies that provide great ethics. These great ethics must be provided on a consistent basis throughout the year. Of course, great ethics is just a normal part of Aloha Construction’s DNA, but the company was just one of many other companies that made the list. An independent panel of about 15 judges narrowed-down the choices and Aloha Construction was the last company standing. “Businesses that operates in an ethical manner and understands their clients’ needs is what this award is all about,” said Steve Bernas, CEO of the BBB.

The company is family-owned, and it has completed over 18,000 projects since its inception. The future of the home-improvement industry is in great hands and Aloha Construction is leading the way.
Hussain Sajwani is the founder and Chairman of the luxury real estate development agency DAMAC Properties, located in Dubai.

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.

A whimsical and intensely pigmented cosmetic line by Lime Crime, founded by Doe Deere, brings to life the essence of fairy tales along with beauty.
Meet Doe Deere, CEO and founder of Lime Crime, who started off with a mission to revolutionize makeup from the way you shop for it, to the way it makes you feel.
Lime Crime hosts a vast display of everything from iridescent, bold lipsticks, to semi-permanent hair dye and eye shadows, just to name a few.
What sets the brand in a league of its own is it’s all certified, cruelty-free and vegan products. You can be bold with your beauty and confident that it’s safe for your body.
Doe Deere began her career as a budding fashion designer, studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. In 2004 she embarked on a DIY online fashion site which featured her own designs and clothing, which she showcased by modeling them herself.
Realizing how difficult it was to find bright, bold shades of cosmetics, Doe decided to formulate them herself. Combining her love of fairy tales, makeup, and imaginative, vivid colors she began creating her own makeup, sowing the seeds of what was to eventually become Lime Crime.
By posting online makeup tutorials and hosting giveaways for her makeup and accessories, she noticed the feedback was more remarkable and considerably larger than it was for her fashion designs.
Discovering her niche, she never looked back.
In 2008 Lime Crime was founded, with a unicorn for a mascot that represents individuality and rare beauty. Doe Deere came up with the name from her favorite color, bright green, and cosmetics so vivid and bold that wearing them might be considered a crime! Talk about a fun way to brand the products!
The vegan and cruelty free makeup offers loose, pigmented eye shadows, liquid to matte lipsticks, iridescent lip sticks, semi-permanent hair dye, pop on nails, and much more.
The fan base call themselves unicorns as well, since it takes bravery and confidence to rock bright, shimmery colors, that defies expectations. The colors are innovative and usually hard to come by, so being a unicorn definitely means you’re going to stand out from the rest.
Lime Crime is sold online and also available in retail stores in the U.S and worldwide.
When asked what trend excites her the most, Doe Deere says it’s definitely Generation Z and their immediate social media feedback that keeps her in the know. She believes Generation Z, the first fully digitized generation who grew up with the internet and all things digital, are going to change the future of online shopping.
Doe Deere’s accomplishments also include being named one of the Top Inspiring Female Entrepreneurs by Self-Made magazine. She is an avid supporter of women ran businesses and animal rescue operations.
“Beauty should make you feel happy.”
The future of Lime Crime is as bright as its colors, with an Instagram following of 3 million people and counting, along with the unicorn fan base, it embodies happiness and inspires individuality, something to be appreciated and admired.

On Sunday, January 21st, the U.S. Money Reserve was proud to be the sponsor for the 47th annual Barret-Jackson Scottsdale Auction.

The U.S. Money Reserve is also proud to be the sponsor of several other auctions the Barret-Jackson company organizes with locations in Palm Beach, Florida, Mohegan Sun, Connecticut, and Las Vegas, Nevada
It is a proud moment indeed in the history of the U.S. Reserve. Founded in 2001 the company has quickly proved itself in the marketplace as being robust and competent within the realm of precious metals and precious metal investments.
Today the company has seen much prestige and recognition for its excellent services. It now is considered the world’s premier precious metals equity company and has aided 400,000 customers to solidify their assets and diversify their portfolios.
They have also shown initiative in moving into the future with the technology age that the 2010s have ushered in, with a recent complete renewal of their online site. The reworked version of the website aims to improve buyer experience in a few specific ways. Read more: US Money Reserve | Twitter and US Money Reserve | Facebook
The website is designed to help educate the buyer on their purchases and to simplify and streamline the customer experience. As a result, those interested are not only able to make informed decisions, the ease of transaction is facilitated for those who do choose to purchase.
However, even though the company is in the here and now, they remain in touch with their roots in the historical role precious metals have had to play in the course of U.S. financial history. 35th president of the U.S. Mint and the current president of the U.S. Money Reserve, Philip N. Diehl, has certainly not forgotten the gravity of the historical importance of precious metals within American history.
A former chief of staff for the U.S. Mint, he has seen their relevance up close and is committed to ensuring the highest levels of service in his role as president of the U.S. Money Reserve today.

James Larkin was a labor leader. He organized trade unions and led strikes all over Ireland. Not everybody agreed with his methods of doing this, but at the end of the day he got things done. He achieved great successes by just holding his ground and not allowing workers to be maltreated.
His life goals all started back in 1876 when Irish emmigrants bore him in slums. He grew up there and got accustomed to living in slums. He even went to school and worked to support his father. After James Larkin senior passed on the family did not crumble, because it already had an industrious man in their midst.
He married Elizabeth Brown in 1903 and in the same year became a member of the Irish Labour Party. He also joined the National Union of Dock Labourers in 1905 as a trade union organizer. He was sent on his first duty on behalf of the union to Ireland. His work was to organize workers. James Larkin did so and even arranged strikes. Most of their demands were met and requests accepted. Learn more about James Larkin: http://www.irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/artsfilmtv/books/the-definitive-biography-of-big-jim-larkin-372254.html and http://spartacus-educational.com/IRElarkin.htm
However, something went wrong within NUDL in 1907 when James Larkin and James Sexton rubbed shoulders. This disagreement led James Larkin to go against the union’s directives by conducting a workers’ organization in Dublin. He was released in the same year.
In 1912, the Irish Labour Party was formed. The two that were behind this great formation were James Larkin and James Connolly. The Irish Labor Party led the strike in Dublin that came to be known as the Dublin Lockout.
James Larkin decided to go to the United States of America in 1914. He was arrested six years later for criminal anarchy. Two years later, after spending an incomplete term in jail, he was relieved of the charges and deported to Ireland.
Ireland was his parents’ original homeland. That is also where James Larkin first worked on behalf of NUDL. Ireland is where he was laid to eternal rest after he passed on in the late January of 1947. The milestone achievements he had made, however, can never be reputed.
According to Jim Winkler, the vice president of sales at Market America Unfranchise, having a positive mindset translates to business success. In his Basic 5 series, he expounded on how to use the right attitude and knowledge to succeed in business.
Information is essential in business. Stay in the know by checking the Market America Unfranchise news features. Knowing what is happening will shape your business activities. Stick to reliable and well-known sources to avoid getting the wrong information. For your Unfranchise business, the Better Business Bureau is a reputable outlet.
Winkler also notes that successful people work harder. Before the money starts flowing in, they have the right attitude and put in an extra effort. They are not fixated on giving excuses as to why the business may not work but concentrate on accomplishing their goals and believe that things will eventually work out.
Many business people are not born lucky and have had to work for their success. Winkler got far in business by actively putting in resources to help him learn different skills. He suggests listening to audio recordings as these are flexible and can play in the background when doing other things such as exercising or while shopping.
Schedule weekly calls with your partners to succeed in business. Communicating consistently boosts knowledge. Note any issues you would like to discuss beforehand to make the best out of the time you have. Also, connect with the Market America Unfranchise community by taking part in conference calls, meetings, and through social media.
Winkler emphasizes that it is essential to take Market America Unfranchise as a business and not as a hobby. While a hobby costs money, an enterprise creates wealth. Start with the aim of seeing your business grow. With these pointers, it is evident that the right attitude determines how successful your business grows. Apply them to excel in what you do.

Whitney Wolfe is doing what she has to do when it comes to establishing a company to a completely new line of people that may have become discouraged by dating apps. There are a lot of apps out there that have spam users and people that are making inappropriate comments. Whitney Wolfe is putting things in place that can help lead to a much better dating app experience.If there are users for Bumble that are being contacted with spam all that they have to do is un-match and report if this is spam. Users that are connected on Bumble can also select a comment if these are inappropriate users. There are all types of ways to help Whitney Wolfe build a better dating app company, and people are excited about the way that she has managed to handle this.
Technology is changing and a very significant way, and more people are talking about what Bumble is doing in this day and time. Whitney Wolfe initially had an idea to create an anti-bullying app, but now her mine is focused heavily on the dating app community and establishing a completely new way for people to date.The dating apps have been something that Whitney Wolfe has been successful with developing. She has done this for a while, and now she is expanding to embrace the new community that is looking for a way to network through Bumble. Everyone that signs up for the Bumble dating app does not always go into relationship mode. Some of these people are simply trying to connect with others that are interested in the same things that they are interested in.
Whitney Wolfe knows that people are tired of the same old social media tactics that have been in place before. She realizes that she can do something that may not have been commonplace in the dating app community. That is why she was really taking the time to embrace the dating apps and see how these apps were developed before Bumble was created. She is also taking time to conceptualize a new way of looking at app technology. Wolfe did not want to be someone that was creating a clone of everything else. She wanted to go in with a fresh mind and develop apps that had a certain sense of familiarity, but Whitney wanted to make sure that Bumble was new and exciting.
Imagine three young men on campus, all finance majors, walking to their favorite cafeteria to look for a snack. One of the three notes that for all the trouble they go through to get a snack, the food is not even healthy enough; and immediately, this becomes a light bulb moment.
They realize that they can create a brand of healthy and organic alternative food and snack choices for everyone on campus. The only challenge is that even though they are finance majors, they haven’t done much of what would be called business before. This is the story of Nathaniel Ru, Nicolas Jammet, and Jonathan Neman.
When they realized that their idea might have a chance of selling to their customers, they decided that it was time to think about getting support regarding funding. They came up with a business plan, and they started looking for prospective business rental spaces for their idea.
The first location that they got was owned by the same person that owned the rental apartment where they lived. Ru states that when they approached the lady, she told them that she might consider leasing the space to them, but only if they had a solid business plan. They went back and drew a good business plan, and with her help, they got a consultant to help them with the process.
They realized that to make the brand, they needed to invest in the local community. They created a business model which was so efficient that the fruits and vegetables which are in season are what is served in their shops. They make sure that all the products they sell are organic and that wastage is kept minimal because this reduced the carbon footprint.

The next hurdle they had to deal with was marketing their product to customers. They realized that their target demographic would buy more if there were a convenient and digital way to make a sale. They created an app, and currently, about 30 percent of their sales are made using this application.
They have done a great job marketing their brand. Sweetgreen has spread its influence locally. They are now in 40 locations across the country, and the business is still expanding.
