When Hussain Sajwani was a young student he made a deal with himself that he would never go into business for himself. He worked many hours after school in his father’s store and said that he would get a degree and become a professional and then he would be able to work normal hours.
However, opportunity changed Hussain’s boyhood pledge and he did start his own business after all. He formed a catering company that very successfully served food to the US Army during the Gulf Wars in the countries of Kuwait and Iraq. That business is still intact today and doing very well.
In 2002, Sajwani formed a company called DAMAC, a real estate investment company that would keep the Hussain Sajwani family in a very prosperous position for sure. When the UAE government made the decision to allow foreigners the right to immigrate to the UAE, Sajwani calculated correctly that there would be a subsequent boom in real estate.
Sajwani became a master of marketing and there were not many places in the country that did not have ads and promotions that the DAMAC owner had placed. One of his favorite ad slogans was, “A Bently For Every Apartment.” Proving that good advertising works, his first project was completely sold out before he even started construction.
Sajwani also used very conservative business tactics. He always pays for the land for his projects in cash in full. That way there will never be any issue with foreclosure. He also finances very little of the rest of the building projects which helps solidify the entire investment. Each separate apartment project has its own accounting system and bank account. Should one project prove difficult from a financial standpoint, it won’t have any effect on the rest of the business.
Securus Technologies has led the way for correctional facility defense for the last three decades. Beginning in the late 1980s, Securus Technologies has expanded from their headquarter office in Dallas, Texas and has expanded throughout the state of Texas and also has a regional office in the state of Georgia located in the city of Atlanta.
Securus Technologies has made it their life work to not only keep inmates safe from the crime inside correctional facilities but to also help prepare them to become productive civilians when they leave the prison system.
Securus Technologies uses several innovations to help correctional facilities keep inmate crime at a minimum. Cell Defender is one such innovative product. This product allows a correctional facility to set up sensors throughout their building so that when a contraband cell phone is used it picks up the signal and locates that cell phone. Cell Defender will then take a cell phone and scan into data in search of keywords that signal inmate crime.
Securus Technologies also has created a product which is aptly called Wireless Containment Solutions. Wireless Containment Solutions specifically targets and annihilates the cell phones’ Wi-Fi capability.
In addition to these products which decrease inmate crime, Securus Technologies will replace those cell phones with ones that they have created which allow inmates to have a better life.
The cell phones created by Securus Technologies allows an inmate to use their visitation hours to call and video chat with their families at home. In addition to this wonderful thing, the cell phone will also allow the inmate to pursue a college degree online. Through the cell phone, an inmate has a true college experience where they are expected to read textbooks, do homework, and turn in reports. This helps them to secure a job upon release.

This year has been devastating for Puerto Rico as it was affected by Hurricane badly. More than a million residents in the country lost power due to the hurricane Irma and even after the recovery efforts were able to restore power to many houses, around 60,000 households were left without any electricity. The recovery efforts were further affected when a stronger Hurricane Maria hit the country. Hurricane Maria was a category five storm that unleashed its wrath wherever it moved across the country.
It almost shattered the island with continuous thirty hours of wind and rain. The winds during the Hurricane Maria exceeded the speed of 155 mph (DailyForexReport). The energy and transportation system of the island was deeply affected due to the Hurricane and is heavily damaged due to it. Many homes have been completely ruined due to the hurricane and the official count of the total damage done by the Hurricane is over $90 Billion.
Many independent organizations are working to reach out to the people in need in Puerto Rico and provide them with the necessary supplies and medical assistance to survive this natural disaster and rebuild their lives. Red Cross is amongst the foremost organizations that are actively working in the severely affected regions of Puerto Rico in conjunction with the government bodies. The volunteers and the employees of American Red Cross have been working hard to help rebuild communities and provide support to the residents in whichever way they can. The Red Cross has also significantly assisted with the distribution of the aid that the country is receiving from all across the globe (https://affiliatedork.com/puerto-rico-relief-and-glen-wakeman).
Even though the government is making their bid to rebuild the communities in Puerto Rico, corporate and individual donations would also help in accelerating the pace in which the reconstruction is happening. One of the individuals who know the importance of giving back to the society is Glen Wakeman, who has also donated to aid the rebuilding of Puerto Rico after the hurricane. Glen Wakeman is the CEO of a SAAS Company named LaunchPad Holdings. He holds Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Economics and has done MBA in Finance from the Chicago University. Glen Wakeman has more than two decades of working experience in the finance sector has worked with companies like GE Capital as well.

Dr. Jorge Moll Neto is a Brazilian heart surgeon and entrepreneur. He is the founder of D’Or Hospital Network and president of D’Or Institute for Research and Teaching. Established in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, D’Or Hospital Network has expanded to 32 hospitals around the country.
In a recent medical symposium, Jorge Moll highlighted some milestones for the hospital network. He traced the origins of D’Or Hospital Network to the poor quality public health services in Brazil. According to Jorge Moll, his solution to poor services was the establishment of a network of hospitals in Rio de Janeiro. The D’Or Hospital Network faced many hurdles including cash flow limitations and debt servicing. Also, the health network experienced a reduction in patient numbers arising from the Brazilian financial crisis. During the crisis, a lot of people abandoned the hospital network for public health service or other health providers.
To overcome these obstacles, Jorge Moll introduced what he referred to as “Total Health Management Model.” This model sought to provide quality and affordable health care using qualified professionals and technology. The model will ensure proper patient management from the casualty, through treatment to discharge.
Moreover, Jorge Moll reiterated the hospital network’s commitment to quality which has seen some of their hospitals receiving international recognition. One of the flagship hospitals under the system is the luxurious Star Cup hospital in Copacabana (idor.org). This hospital used 400 million Reais to set up and employs over 600 medical professionals. The Copa Star’s interior décor garnished with woody tones, and a citrus touch ensures that the smell of ether, associated with hospitals is non-existent. Also, the Copa Star is designed to make use of natural illumination which emits a welcoming aura of tranquility.
Jorge Moll studied medical science at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He attained his Ph.D (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jorge_Moll2). in 2004 from Sao Paul University after completing his Neurology therapeutic residence. Jorge Moll has immensely contributed to the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit where he heads. One of the Moll research is the foundation of the affinitive emotions and altruism. He discovered that involving yourself in charity work has the same effect as engaging in a pleasurable activity.

Numerous issues force organizations to curtail the provision of stock options to their employees. Jeremy Goldstein outlines three major ones that include the possibility of stock value dropping considerably thus becoming difficult for employees to manage their choices. Many stockholders will overhang the options because they need to add the associated expenditure in their reports. Secondly, the stock options may create substantial accounting burdens with the relevant costs eclipsing the financial benefits of the derivatives. Lastly, most of the employees usually become burdened by this compensation model because the options become worthless with economic downturns.
However, there are still many advantages of providing stock options to employees. The staff members easily understand stock options hence this kind of compensation continues to gain preference for additional insurance coverage, equities, or wages. The stock options offer a better alternative to all staff. Also, because the stock derivatives only lead to increased personal earnings whenever the company’s share value increases, the employees always get motivated to achieve more considerable success for the institution as their priority. The employees will work towards attracting desirable customers, satisfying their existing clients, and developing services that are innovative. From the company’s perspective, it is often cheaper to offer options other than shares, especially for top executives.
Jeremy Goldstein maintains that companies can still minimize excessive costs while continuing to provide stock options to their employees so long as they employ the correct strategy. The organization must ensure minimal overhang and minimal expenses. Therefore, the best option according to Jeremy Goldstein is to adopt a knockout barrier option. The knockout options have same vesting requirements as well as time limits as the ideal options. Nevertheless, if the shares go below a certain amount, the employees would lose them. The mechanism reduces initial accounting expenses and executive compensation.
Jeremy Goldstein is a famous attorney that many corporations turn to when they require legal advice concerning the provision of employee benefits. He is a partner at Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates which has a dedication towards the provision of legal information related to corporate governance and executive compensation. He has vast experience through his involvement with significant corporate transactions such as Goodrich’s acquisition by the United Technologies.
Jeremy Goldstein is among the leading compensation lawyers. Jeremy speaks and writes about executive compensation and corporate governance. He is also a director of Fountain House which is a charity that dedicates itself to assisting people to recover from mental illness.

Mike Baur notes that one of the critical elements in business is communication. In this point, he acknowledges that communication enables the business to run efficiently and grow faster. He notes various types of communication as the vertical communication and the horizontal communication. Mike Baur emphasizes that for an entrepreneur to understand the two modes of communications one should be conversant with the organizational structure of the business.
Mike Baur notes that the organizational structure should be a clear one that can easily be outlined on a chart. All departments should be headed by one central executive. He notes that each department similarly should have a person heading it. He outlines some of the departments as follows; the procurement department that deals with the purchasing of the materials required in the business, the production department that will be responsible for processing or producing the final products for clients and the marketing department that will seek for potential clients who will buy the products of the business.
According to Mike Baur, there should be a clear central objective that all the department should adhere to while conducting the operations. The common objective should be formulated by the central executive management that should be well communicated vertically to the heads of the various departments. On this note, the heads of departments are required to communicate the same to the junior employees of the firm in their departments. Another mode of communication that Mike Baur outlines as vital is the use of horizontal communication. This ensures that there is communication amongst the departments of the business. Since all heads of departments have the same rank, then their communication is known as horizontal communication.
