Regardless of the industry you are in you can learn quite a bit from people and businesses in other industries. The women empowerment dating app Bumble shows how to take a very successful product and expand it in new and different directions. While Bumble began life as a dating app it has since been extended into a product that can help make new friends as well as new business contacts.
Bumble is the brainchild of Whitney Wolfe Herd, an innovator and entrepreneur in the tech industry. She came up with the concept of a dating app where it is strictly the women who get to make the first move. Using this idea she co-founded Bumble and is its chief executive officer. Even if you don’t use or care about dating apps any business owner can learn quite a bit from the smart moves she has made with Bumble. Visit on her twitter account for more updates.
Before Whitney Wolfe Herd came along every dating app relied on men starting a conversation. How Bumble works is if both a woman and a man swipe right on each other, which is the way of showing interest, the woman has a day to send a message to him. If she doesn’t the connection disappears. The business lesson from this is that while you have a target demographic you’re not actually trying to reach everyone in it. It makes a lot of business sense to appeal to a smaller segment of the market rather than chasing everyone which usually results in being like everyone else in your industry and not achieving a lot of success.
Whitney Wolfe Herd has a reputation that has expanded well beyond the tech industry. Her business smarts and original vision resulted in her getting a non-voting position on Imagine Entertainment’s board of directors. This board, led by co-chairmen Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, chose Whitney Wolfe Herd because she would bring a fresh perspective. They wanted someone who thinks differently than the other board members do while at the same time understanding the importance of story-telling and how important human connection is.

When the stock market experiences difficulties, people in the financial industry think of the TINA acronym which stands for “there is no alternative”. When investors think about trying to get different stocks at the later stages of a bull market, many of them have to remind themselves that their stocks that have remained a safe bet so far will probably continue to earn them the most returns with their investment. Near the late stages of a bull market, many investors tend to consider bonds as a safer option that is guaranteed to pay at least some dividends.
Many investors are also turning to cryptocurrencies during this troubled time in the market. After seeing the possible benefits of investing in cryptocurrency, Ian King decided to show more interest in the subject by being the cryptocurrency for the publishing giant Banyan Hill Publishing.

Flavio Maluf is high-ranking executive of the Eucatex company in Brazil. He joined the firm more than three decades ago. Maluf has served in the trade, industrial and sales sectors of the company before his appointment as president. Below are some of Flavio Maluf’s insights into tax incentives and the impact they have on societies and businesses.
What is the point of fiscal incentive laws asks Flavio Maluf? He answers that they are meant to spur the economic and social development of the nation. Maluf admits that many entrepreneurs struggle in launching new businesses in Brazil. This is because of high taxation and regulation.
What is the solution to this? Flavio Maluf believes it is fiscal incentive laws that give new businesses breaks from the heavy tax and regulation burdens that would be imposed on them by the government. Fiscal incentive laws can be made to target a certain sector says the Eucatex executive. For example, laws can be made that will target the medical, scientific or technological industry. The goal of these incentives would be to foster innovation in these sectors that can help society and other sectors of the economy.
Under standard taxation, money goes directly to the government. In Brazil, there is a lot of corruption and management. In general, it can be said that governments often squander any money they receive. The situation is perhaps especially severe in Brazil.
Fiscal incentive laws divert money from the government and instead let it flow directly to businesses, consumers, and society in general. With lower tax burdens, companies can invest in more equipment. They can also hire more people. Higher wages may result as well.
A lower tax burden can mean can also mean that companies can lower prices. This means that the consumer will benefit. Higher wages and low prices can mean greater disposable income. This means an improving economy.
The concept of a tax or fiscal incentive is pretty simple states Flavio Maluf. It can span varying levels of scope. For example, it can be on a city-wide scale, an industrial scale or even a national scale. The scope of the fiscal incentive laws depends on the government policy and goals.
The tweet-storm that Shervin Pishevar produced on February 6, 2018, is an apt example of a mind that takes in information from several sources, analyzes it, and distributes a verdict based on experience. Shervin Pishevar had itemized such thoughts before, but not to this extent. The 50-tweets over a 24-hour period encompassed a panorama of views on the American economy. One of his most interesting points was the place and fate of industrial giants like Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Alphabet in our economy.
In tweet #41, Shervin Pishevar notes, “Giants built on monopoly frameworks will fall. As they should. That’s how evolution works. Old forests burn to make room for the new.” When Pishevar mentions monopoly frameworks, he is talking about mega-corporations that adopt the practice of buying up and eliminating entrepreneurial enterprises that may or may not affect their bottom line. These huge corporations purchase all possible competitors to retain and manipulate their share of the market.
Shervin Pishevar is looking to the past to find the future. In 1913, Theodore Roosevelt demanded and signed the original antitrust laws. These laws were necessitated by the same monopolistic tendencies of those at the top of the economic food-chain that exist today. Pishevar points out the natural economic evolutionary pattern that destroys monopolies.Antitrust laws are one way that monopolies are broken up, as seen in the breakup of the Bell system in 1984. Most consumers asked “why” after a consent decree ordered the breakup in 1982. To the consumer, Bell looked like a perfect company that took care of the communication needs of the nation, just as the monopolistic corporations do today. However, the actions of Bell after the breakup of clinging to the old land-line systems and existing off the profits of the long-distance communication system spawns doubts that the wireless communication systems that birthed social media would ever have existed if Bell had not been broken up.
Another problem for monopolies is that they exist in a world separate from Main Street. Monopolies continue to demand high prices for inferior products when their product is the only one available. Competition is the force that creates innovation. Eventually, invention will overcome the static nature of monopolies as the consumer demands the superior product. Shervin Pishevar knows these facts. He has experienced the shock of monopolistic control and the excitement of busting that control. His tweet is an expression of that excitement.
As an eminent age-reversal company on the multi-level marketing (MLM) platform, Jeunesse has provenitself an honest solution for those who are looking to take on an entrepreneurial role as well as those who want to undo the many years of age acceleration that’s been caused by the unnatural lifestyles we live today. Fired up in 2009, this alternative health and wellness company was created by Randy and Wendy as they exited retirement to begin new lives as pioneers in the age-reversing side of the medical market. Their commitment to the development of their Youth Enhancement System has proven incredibly successful and continues to grow more popular by the day.
The Youth Enhancement System
The founding tenets of the company were based on the noble concept that nature still holds the title of most powerful technology ever, and this is never reflected better than in the power of the body to bounce back from its own falls. The problem today is that our processed diets and highly sedentary lifestyles in conjunction with an over-reliance on computers has deprived us of the physical and mental provisions that are needed to stay healthy. Worse, the body isn’t receiving all the nutrients that it needs to recover from its own illnesses.
As such, the Youth Enhancement System is introduced into the body using several forms of media that take the form of liquids, powders, gel packs, capsules and others; these are used to help the body absorb the specific nutrients that are present in each of the nine product categories in the Youth Enhancement System. The nutrients themselves are all-natural and impart several benefits to your well-being, including:
A sleep-enhancing blend that helps you stay tucked in all night and wake up feeling refreshed
A juice mix that replaces coffee and energy drinks to get you rolling more quickly
Mood-lifting and energy-promoting formulas that keep you flexible, quick on your feet and ready for anything
A unique protein blend that sharpens your mind down to a razor’s edge
Fitness enhancers that encourage the conversion of fat to muscle while keeping your appetite under control
The habanero pepper comes from the Chinense species of pepper. This type of pepper packs a wallop of capsaicin which helps your body to release a natural painkiller known as endorphins. Endorphins are exactly what runners speak of when they feel a runner’s high and is similar to an opiate molecule.
These opiate-type molecules lock into a particular type of receptor in the brain to give you a calm sensation. And the health benefits of habanero peppers don’t stop there.
Researchers filled test tubes with harmful bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella. The researchers then added ketchup, lemon juice, horseradish and habanero hot sauce to the test tubes. Ketchup had absolutely no effect on the bacteria while lemon juice and horseradish killed some of the harmful bacteria. But even diluted 16 to 1, habanero hot sauce killed all the bacteria within minutes. Habanero pepper is perfect for a full-body cleanse.
And you can add habanero pepper to your food with ease using The Original Habanero Shaker. This incredible condiment allows you to shake habanero pepper flakes over your food as you would shake red pepper flakes over your pizza. You get that incredibly balanced smoky and buttery flavor that is backed up by plenty of heat.
Researchers have also proven that the heat of the habanero pepper fades with time. That means you can build up a tolerance to the spice rather quickly while receiving all the health benefits of the habanero pepper itself.
Joel Friant, a serial entrepreneur, originally debuted this habanero shaker back in the mid-90s. But as a serial entrepreneur who believes in free markets, Joel Friant was spinning a lot of plates back then. The habanero shaker came off the market for a short period of time while Joel Friant began flipping houses and performing research.
Joel Friant became obsessed with what makes a business person successful after the 2008 stock market crash. He began to perform his own research and came up with his own business success program called The Income Thermostat. But now he’s brought back this incredible habanero product by popular demand.

The magazine publication Inc. 5000 periodically releases a list of businesses they consider to be among the top in the country. In their recent edition they published a list of companies, which included the bottled water brand of Waiakea. Not only did the Waiakea brand make the magazine’s list of successful businesses, it placed at number 414. This placed the bottled water in line with such seasoned companies as Microsoft, Zappos and Timberland. This placement was a highly prized achievement by Waiakea’s founder, Ryan Emmons.
The success of Waiakea water can be attributed to its founder’s unique strategy to market it as both an eco-friendly and socially-conscious brand. Since the water is sourced on the big island of Hawaii, it was easy to promote it as coming from a sustainable resource. The water comes from the snow and rain that falls on the peaks of the Mauna Loa volcano. Since it is constantly being renewed, the source of the water is never depleted and never impacts the surrounding sustainability of the natural environment.
In addition to promoting the water as eco-friendly, CEO Ryan Emmons also chose to include the water’s beneficial health properties. This water is naturally enriched with several essential minerals, including potassium, silica and magnesium. This enhancement occurs as the water passes through underground layers of volcanic rock on its way to a natural aquifer. The rock formations not only help make the water a healthier beverage to drink, they also give it a pH level between 7.8 and 8.8, which makes it better suited for penetrating the cells of the body for a more thorough process of hydration.
The social-conscious aspect of the brand comes from the company’s choice to use recycled plastic in the creation of the bottles used to contain it. This company has also taken steps to reduce the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere by putting a more efficient manufacturing process into place. The team behind the Waiakea brand of bottled water have also partnered with Pump Aid to help bring clean water to underdeveloped communities such as those found in South Africa.
