From Food to Land: The Path to Success for Hussain Sajwani

It’s a big jump to go from selling sandwiches to selling high rises and building golf courses. But that’s the journey Hussain Sajwani took to become one of the biggest real estate moguls in the United Arab Eremites.

In the 1980s, Sajwani got his start in business by running catering services for energy workers in Abu Dhabi. Soon he attracted bigger clients, like the U.S. Army and the construction corporation Bechtel. While successful, he did not see the sort of profits he would have liked. So Sajwani decided to expand his business dealings.

Real estate was an area the Hussain Sajwani family had done real estate dealings before, usually involving small-to-medium sized hotels. But Sajwani wanted to go bigger. In 2002, he founded DAMAC Properties. His big focus was on a new law by the UAE that allowed foreigners to own property within the country.

One of his first projects was the purchase of land in an undeveloped part of Dhubai that he turned into a 38 story residential building, in just six months time. Read more: Hussain Sajwani | Forbes

Since then, the DAMAC owner and chairman has helped oversee Dubai’s transformation into a city of luxury buildings. Sajwani’s firm has been responsible for the construction of the Casablanca Boutique Villas, AYKON City, and EVO Townhomes.

But it’s not only buildings Sajwani helped develop. He has teamed up with current U.S. President Donald Trump to build the Trump International Golf Course Dubai at the Akoya development. The course opened in 2017. Another Trump and DAMAC collaborative golf course, designed by Tiger Woods, is scheduled to open in 2018. Both men got together for a press conference shortly after Trump’s inauguration, and the new president referred to Sajwani as, “An amazing man.”

Sajwani has also been active in charitable efforts. In 2013, he donated AED two million for a campaign to purchase clothing for poor children throughout the world. It is estimated this money benefited 50,000 needy children.

Sajwani has also not forgotten his business beginnings. His original catering business is still part of DAMAC.

Securus Technologies Helping Us Break Up a Drug Ring

I work in a prison that has a huge gang population. The problem we face on a daily basis is that the gang leaders have their soldiers doing the crimes and getting in trouble for the sake of the gang, while the leaders work in the shadows. These soldiers will only make a move when the word comes down, and as officers, we usually are in reaction mode instead of attack mode.

 

If a gang member is told to assault another gang member, we have to be there quick enough to stop the assault and keep everyone safe. Usually during these attacks, officers as well and the inmate are injured, and we see this happening more frequently as the jail is way over capacity.

 

One of the things we used to rely on was information from informants, but the gangs hand down a very harsh punishment on anyone they think is talking to the police, so this information is getting harder to come by. During an upgrade to the jail, Securus Technologies was employed to help upgrade our dated inmate communication system. The team at Securus Technologies trained us on the LBS software so that we could be in a position to intercept information being passed from one inmate to another or from people outside the jail.

 

During my first week of using the new LBS software, I was able to hear two brothers who are in this jail talking about how they received instructions to take down a rival gang member during a basketball game in the yard. The officers and I were able to discover that knives were already made and hidden under the fence, easily accessible by the inmate who was going to initiate the attack.

 

The new communication system has already saved countless lives and helped to keep me and my fellow officers safer in the jail.

Things clients wish they knew about social security benefits-David Giertz

Many pensioners on CNBC.com start claiming their social security benefits as soon as they reach the legal age of 62 years. While many assume that this is the natural thing to do at the age, there are statistics which show that waiting as long as possible after retirement before asking for the benefits will help you get more each month. In fact, people who seek the benefits earlier end up losing up to $300,000 over a period of 25 years or roughly $12000 every year. One experienced financial advisor thinks that the time has come for financial advisors to start being honest with their clients about the social security benefits. David Giertz did an interview with the Wall Street Journal, and this is what he had to say.

First, he noted that the main reason the topic is avoided by many of the investors is the sheer amount of information that has to be covered on Twitter. It is not easy to explain thousands of rules to every single investment client that one handles.

Unfortunately, statistics also show that 4 out of 5 customers will drop their advisor the moment they suspect that the topic of security benefits has been avoided at https://vimeo.com/davidgiertz. David encourages the people to be told about the best ways to maximize their social security benefits for the sake of their sunset years.

Why the Work of Betsy DeVos is Cut Out for Her

If you’ve heard the saying, “You’ve got your work cut out for you”, then you know how I see the future of Betsy DeVos. She couldn’t have been appointed at a better time when the schools have been their weakest, and when reform for education couldn’t come soon enough. It never ceases to amaze me just how much the schools are lacking, and I can recall how fortunate I was to have a solid education in a private school. However, I never saw government sticking their nose into the business of education, and that is something I would like to see Betsy change. I can safely say that her work is right in front of her, even if it is limited to this one issue. There is no shortcut or easy way to reform the educational system, and reform is desperately needed.

What if every child was able to get a quality education? Right now at this very moment, they cannot. Children are limited to what they can get because of the zip code they live in. Regardless of where a child lives they should have rich opportunities and a rich curriculum. Those who are less fortunate right now could easily become better when they are given an opportunity. The children may not realize it, but those who are leaders do know and should be working with Betsy to bring positive change. Read more news on LATimes.com

Betsy has decades of experience in politics as well as working with educational groups and organizations. Her knowledge and experience is so valuable and vital to the health of the school system. It is also important that she work quickly to help the state get their children a curriculum and foundation they can understand and build on. I have heard other parents with older children discuss Common Core and just how hard it really is. Isn’t this making learning harder?

My hope is that Betsy DeVos can bring reform to this challenge and ensure that students are able to get a foundation that they build on. Learning should not be difficult or stressful, but rather challenging and insightful. Her view on bringing policies closer to home to be worked on is ideal and it is one that will give the schools freedom to work with students on different levels. It is Betsy DeVos that will bring opportunity to the school system rather than inequality as it stands right now. I am thrilled that she is an advocate for school choice. I believe that is just one of the many aspects of living in a free country. I should be able to choose what school my daughter can attend, and I see that change coming with Betsy DeVos in place.

Is Fabletics The New Amazon?

Amazon is big, and no one can deny it. But Fabletics by Kate Hudson is creating ripples in the e-commerce market. It is a $250 million business in just three years! This is due to the unique strategy behind this business promoting workout attire.

 

Fabletics is being promoted as a high-value brand. Earlier it was all about price, quality of goods and so on. But this is not the recipe for success anymore. There is much more that customers want today. This would include customer experience, exclusivity, brand image and so on. The strategy of Fabletics is placed around these factors, and it is readily paying off.

 

Fabletics already has 16 physical stores and plans to open a few more this year. They know what their customer wants and aim towards providing them exclusive and personalized service. Besides, their clothes would be priced lesser than the competition.

 

No one can deny the “reverse showrooming” strategy of Fabletics as it has paid off so well. The e-commerce giants have been highly concerned about customers browsing on their site but making purchases from other places that were cheaper. But Fabletics is all about building relationships. Hence they build a rapport through local events and other activities. This way they have members even before they walk in through the store. Any activity within the store also gets added to their online cart. Hence online and offline shopping behavior working in tandem has led to success for Fabletics.

 

As per its customers, Fabletics has come out with innovative schemes where they offer monthly memberships. The members can get personalized outfits for their workouts. There are no compulsions here. You can buy when and if you want. No purchases mean no monthly charges. Fabletics will ask you about the kind of workouts you do. Next will be the kind of workout clothes you prefer; like gym shorts, capris, tops and so on.

 

The quality of their workout clothes has been exceptionally good. This is vital in order to get customers and retain them. Clothes have to be strong and able to retain their flexibility. Next, the colors should not fade too soon. This is an essential requirement of workout clothes.

 

The customers are highly focused on style today. Fabletics understands this well. Hence they have the latest styles in their stores. They like to keep trendy stuff as well as fun stuff. This way, people have a huge variety to choose from. They are bound to find something that they like.

 

Fabletics is true value for money as per its customers. This is because members get special privileges. Hence they pay much lower than they would at any competitor. Besides, the quality is very good. On the whole, it can be considered as a really good deal.

 

In the case of any online experience, navigation is the key. Fabletics offers easy navigation on its site. The sizes, prices, colors and other details are clearly visible. The only issue is that one has to hurry as items get out of stock really fast. But there is an efficient customer service that will take care of issues if any.
