Not too long ago, Steve was appointed as the new CEO for Papa Johns, following the former company head being dismissed from the company. Steve’s first order of business is to bump up Papa Johns standards all across the board. Even more than that, Steve has assured that the actions of a single Papa Johns employee do not reflect the tens of thousands of employees around the world that work hard for Papa Johns to provide the very best pizza to every customer.
Steve Ritchie Papa John’s has been working with the Papa Johns franchise for more than 20 years, quite literally starting from the bottom. In that span of time, Steve has shown off his work ethic and desire to go above and beyond. One of Steve’s first moves to make amends for the company was to issue an apology on behalf of Papa Johns that went out to all employees and customers, ensuring them of the positive course ahead. Transparency is the best policy for the company moving forward according to Steve and he wants all customers and partners of Papa Johns (@PapaJohns) to be aware of there actions in the coming months and years.

Born in Washington D.C, Ted Bauman attended the State University of New York where he managed to graduate with a BS in administration. He also attended Georgia State University where he graduated with an MBA in Finance. He finally furthered his studies at the University of Cape Town where he earned his postgraduate degrees in both history and economics. Ted Bauman currently serves as a leading editor and writer at Banyan Hill publishing, an occupation he has maintained since 2013.
In all his entire life, Ted has always been trying to help people acquire adequate resources they need to lead a sovereign lifestyle. He protects people from government oversight. Ted is the editor of Bauman letter, a publication that aims in protecting people’s privacy and helping them multiply their gains during their working years before they retire. He uses concrete examples in his journals to portray some of the important financial tips. Rather than being an executive editor at Banyan Hill, Ted Bauman is also a researcher and executive writer for the United Nations. He has also worked with the government of South Africa and various nonprofit funding agencies in Europe.
In one of his articles at Banyan Hill Publishers, Bauman recommended the store of assets beyond the reach of financial institutions. He stated that even if one would like to keep his valuables close at hand, then he would require a home safe or lock box that is waterproof and fireproof. He continued by stating that staffing of the valuables in the house would make them vulnerable to theft and disasters such as fire outbreak. He helped to drive this point by use of a concrete example of his relative, who had stored some of the items he valued in his house, and one day his house almost burned to the ground.
Ted Bauman has also reviewed the topic of protection of investments deeply. He believes that creating a defensive strategy of asset protection is better than the greed of trying to immerse huge gains within a short period. Most of the successful investors have used this tip; they are always willing to plod along and wait until their investments blossom to tangible profits. According to Ted Bauman, he also believes that investing in stock and Bonds is an assurance of protection of one’s investments.
Matt Badiali is unique among other financial analysts due to the fact he is a trained geologist. The natural resource sector can be one of the most volatile sectors for investors, yet he has helped his subscribers double or triple their initial investments with some of his stock recommendations. Matt Badiali has remained bullish about the long-term prices for oil. He recently tweeted about an article calling for a potential $100-barrel oil soon. Oil prices had been on a tear until 2015 when they crashed. Many analysts believe one of the biggest drivers n the price of oil is that in November, sanctions on Iran will take effect. Companies are not allowed to purchase Iranian oil once the sections start and many are anticipating that there will be a deficit of over a million barrels of oil for the world market.
Venezuela, a country that used to produce a lot of oil, is going through its own economic and political issues and will not be able to fill in this gap. Consumers are expected to increase their fuel consumption because the US economy continues to grow. Most financial experts remain optimistic regarding the US economy and expect to see continued growth. If oil sentiment remains bullish, more traders will take the long side of the oil trade, which should continue to drive up oil prices. There are other analysts who feel higher oil is going to hurt the American economy, particularly the average consumer. They believe that the pain that will come for the average American when it comes to filling up their gas tank will end up slowing economic activity.
If gas prices begin to stifle economic growth, President Trump and his administration will face political pressure to deal with the issue. Matt Badiali has remained optimistic that oil prices would rise. He increased his name recognition after he introduced “Freedom Checks” to the investing public. Many of the companies that give out these checks are involved in oil and gas operations here in the US. Matt Badiali feels that many of these companies are going to increase the size of their “Freedom Checks” over the years to come and the share prices should reflect the higher profitability from higher oil prices.
The social media platform Twitter has given more people a voice and way to be heard like never before. Today, millions of people use the service on a daily basis, some of which gain quite a following when they use it. One Twitter user that has frequently gone viral with his messages is Shervin Pishevar. For the past few years, Shervin Pishevar has continued to build a strong following and interested audience due to his predictions for the global economy.
One of the main reasons why Shervin Pishevar continues to have a good following is that he has been a very successful investor himself. Pishevar was one of the earliest investors in Uber and a variety of other companies that have since become some of the best and strongest in their respective industries. While Shervin Pishevar always seems to be vocal and open on Twitter, he recently had a long stretch in which he continued to be open and vocal with his predictions.
During a recent 21-hour period, Pishevar sent out dozens of Tweets that gave predictions for a wide variety of different topics affecting the global economy. One of the most impressive predictions was on his prediction for Bitcoin and other crypto currencies. After seeing these digital currencies soar in value, Pishevar accurately predicted that they would crash in 2018. He even predicted that they would fall to about 5,000 per Bitcoin before leveling off and gaining stability. At this point, he prediction appears to have been very accurate.

Pishevar also gave a variety of longer-term predictions about the global economy. One of the more concerning thoughts was that the United States would soon fall behind emerging markets, such as China and India in a variety of ways. One way that they would fall behind is in regards to technology innovation. While the United States, especially the Silicon Valley region, used to be considered the most innovative area in the world, Pishevar sees a slowdown. One of the reasons for this is that the innovative companies, such as Apple and Google, are now mature and stable companies that could have other priorities.

While investment in the Real Estate Industry seems one of the risk areas to invest in, there are those entrepreneurs who have proved they to be oracles in the sector. One of these people is Hussain Sajwani who is the founder, the Chairman and the president f DAMAC Properties one of the largest companies in the industry in Dubai. Many companies and investors have been forced to cease their existence in the real estate industry market because they have not been able to cope up with various challenges and risks in the sector.
In one of Hussain Sajwani’s interview, he talks about the flourishment of DAMAC Properties under his management. He says that one of the things that have made him and his team keep going is their ability to see the changes and plan on the ways to react accordingly before they have adverse effects on the company’s operations.
For example, during the 2008 economic crisis, Hussain Sajwani says that he and his team had been able to take a close look at the early stages of the crisis and although many businesses were put out of the market by the crisis, DAMAC Properties remained unaffected. This is one of the fundamental principles that any entrepreneur should embrace to ensure not only their survival in the market but also to ensure that they make maximum profits from their investments.
An entrepreneur should always have a nose for new, and whenever that is a difficult situation, he or she should have the ability to see an opportunity in it. Poor entrepreneurs who are pessimistic will always look at difficulties in any chance. During the year 2012, Hussain Sajwani and his team were able to see that the market would enlarge due to the influx of people during the Arab Spring. They took the opportunity and developed the Damac Hills and Akoya Oxygen to cater to the broad market. This served as one of the best steps in the development life of DAMAC Properties.
Besides, philanthropic work is also one of the key factors that enhance the growth of any business entity. Hussain Sajwani (@hussainsajwani), through DAMAC Properties, funded a lump sum of money to a campaign that aimed at providing clothes to the less advantaged children all over the world.

If real estate entrepreneur Jim Toner were a fictional character, he’d be the guy on the next stool at the diner, listening to our hero respond to the counter gal that has asked how he’s doing as precursor to taking his order. Our hero is a bit down, noting that though is heart is true, he’s having difficulties and lamenting that the chips aren’t falling his way. Jim tells our hero that if he’s decided to keep at it, he needs to stand up straight, set his shoulders square, grab the bull by the horns and kick it in the teeth, because any other course of action is just wishing and whining. But he’s not a character in a novel, he’s a real guy who’s been up, down, and up again, and is willing to share his experience to help others realize their goals. Much of his advice comes in the form of re-enforcing precepts we understand but don’t internalize.
Clear your mind, Toner does this through a 2-step process at the start of his day. Waking at 5:30AM he spends 30 minutes thinking pushing the detritus of the past from top of mind. Then he spends a couple of hours in a robust workout. A gym rat from youth, he lives the discipline of practicing pushing past limits in his regime, every day, all the time. Limits to achievement are largely self-imposed, one of the kernels of truth in SEAL training is that when you think you’ve reached the end of your rope, you’re actually at about 40% utilization and there’s a lot more in the tank. You have to train your mind, your primary roadblock to success, to push past that because you can.
According to Jim, when he’s finished priming his engine, about 9:00AM, he starts his professional day. Jim Toner writes books, does motivational and content speeches and radio shows (his 12 Little Houses Plan is a model for achievement in real estate), and provides private counseling for select clients.
Clarify your idea, break it down into a process with components small enough to achieve, and identify who you need to help get it moving. Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman says if you can’t teach your idea to a child you don’t understand it.
Three factors he speaks of are counter-intuitive:
