While many people may know that Hussain Sajwani is an Arab businessman and the founder of DAMAC who is listed as one of the top billionaires in the world by Forbes, they may not know where he came from or what he has accomplished. The truth is that he grew up working with his father on-and-off at his father’s commercial shop. Sajwani learned quite a bit about the business world during this time and discovered a love for entrepreneurship as well. As soon as he was able to, he worked hard enough to receive a government scholarship to go to an American college, and that college was the University of Washington where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics.
Husaain Sajwani went to work after this and quickly learned enough to startup his own catering business. This business was an instant success and has continued to be over the years. Soon after he found his first success in the business world, he founded DAMAC, which is a luxury property development company that has built thousands of properties ranging from apartments to homes. Since his humble beginnings, he has worked with a spread of well known people and brands including Tiger Woods, Versace and Fendi, and the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.
The DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani, has paired up with Donald Trump as a business partner who has helped to design, build, and maintain the golf courses that serve the residents of DAMAC’s luxury properties. He has been close enough to Trump and the Trump Organization that his entire family visited and took part in a New Year’s Eve celebration at Trump’s well known Mar-a-Lago estate. Donald Trump referred to Hussain Sajwani and his family as “beautiful people,” and Sajwani in return has commented that he would love to continue the business relationship with Trump and his organization.
Hussain Sajwani has also been a philanthropist for most of his life, and his AED two million donation to the Emirates Red Crescent charity organization went to put clothes on the back of a million kids who were in dire need of keeping warm.
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:

In getting to know Sam Adrangi, you will find an eclectic, analytical, decisive businessman. The road to his current endeavours shows timeliness of preparation and no fear in confrontation. The ease with which he’s taken on his various accomplishments evokes envy.
Authentic to his lifelong love of writing, he focused on literature and creative writing during high school and his early years in college with the aim of becoming a journalist. With the brave recognition that traditional journalism was a dying sport, he made the adjustment to economics and finance. He wisely continued to feed his love of writing and learning by loading up on history and literature classes in his curriculum. Sahm Adrangi also left no career possibility stones unturned while earning his Baccalaureate of Arts degree at Yale University, and made an impressive go at it as Kevin Wicks in the 2003 award winning Hollywood film ‘Swordswallowers and Thin Men’ which was shot on campus.
His vocational focus has always included prolific writing and the general appreciation for the pen. During his upbringing, he always desired to share his thoughts on paper and to encounter the inner psyche of others in like fashion. As an integral part of his self preparation for economics, he made it a point to read relevant chronicles. For instance, during the summer of his senior year, he devoured such books as “Den Of Thieves,” by James B. Stewart, and “Barbarians At The Gate: The Fall Of RJR Nabisco,” by Bryan Burrough. Both speak in detail of the Company climate and misguided motivations of a few bad men. He also imbibed the life, economic and investment perspectives of Warren Buffet primarily through his biography written by Roger Lowenstein, who would later write the surgically scathing account “When Genius Failed: The Rise And Fall Of Long Term Capital Management.” From this self study, Sahm Adrangi developed an appreciation for a clear line separating wise from unscrupulous investment aims and methodologies.
Today, you can find a trail of lazy, greedy, pretentious, self proclaimed business persons whom Sahm Adrangi has expert and unabashedly dissolved under the acidic strokes of his ready pen. As a business economics columnist for a major publication in Canada, he mastered his craft of analyzing any type of company from a financial perspective. Consequently, he relocated to New York City, New York, the mecca of economic investing. After some traditional stints in the finance industry at three establishments, he felt adept enough to start his own business rather than wait for the estimations of man to promote him through the ranks.
In July 2009, he launched his own fund management firm where he presides today as Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Kerris Dale Capital Management, LLC. Sahm Adrangi first drew the confessional curtain on several shell companies supposedly housed in China. From that moment on, any bogus operation bent on gaining something from nothing and for everything in someone else’s pocket had to consider themselves as served and on notice; likewise for once successful businesses faltering and clinging to crazZy glue labeled as new objectives that, upon examination, show no legitimacy of stability at present and definitely not long term.
Today’s most challenged establishment is Eastman Kodak, a Dow Jones Industrial Average original listed from 1930 to 2004, that five years ago declared renewability through KodakCoin, Kodak KashMiner and KodakOne. Neither has saved the Company’s finances yet and Sam Adrangi, who predicted their demise in 2014 is sticking to his short on them. Similar firms called out for either their lack of leadership, or product and service sustainability or healthy business fundamentals include QuinStreet, Inc., Proteostasis Therapeutics and The St. Joe Company. Sahm Adrangi uses a simple investment strategy of finding failing companies, buying in to short them, exposing their quakeable weaknesses, then watching them inevitably fall while watching his gains climb. Kerris Dale Negative Reports, then, function more like the administration of Castor oil versus some secret pouring of poison. Anyone valuing economic well being will appreciate them, and the doctor gets paid.
Stock investment is one of the easiest methods of investment yet on the most confusing. For those who have experience working in the investments industry, analyzing the best stocks to invest in is never a hard thing. For beginners, however, stock investments can lead to losses. Beginners tend to follow the crowd instead of thinking on their own.A good example of an investment opportunity that has attracted a huge number of beginners is the cryptocurrencies investment. People are just buying bitcoin because they hear it is the next big thing. Only a small section of those investing cryptocurrencies understand what they are. This tendency to invest blindly has been the reason many beginner traders lose investment capital. They invest in markets that are overhyped and immediately they join the prices start going down.
According to Paul Mampilly, a prominent investor in the U.S stock markets investment opportunities need to be scrutinized. An investor should only place money in a certain stock when they are sure that their predictions align with the markets currents. Failure to do due diligence is simply gambling, and we all know how gambling behaves. No investor should gamble with stock investments. A decision to join a particular stock should be after thorough research and satisfaction that the market is going up.The technology sector is an area that presents many investment opportunities. People who would like to look for long-term opportunities should prioritize this sector. Spotting an opportunity is easy than in other sectors. Technological innovations that are replacing traditional ways of doing things are the best investment opportunities.
This has been proved true by the cell phone industry. Cell phones were an innovation that came to replace the landline telephones.Today, cell phone manufacturing companies such as Samsung and Apple are some of the biggest some of the biggest companies in the world. Investors in these companies have earned enormous profits as the companies have developed from nothing to multinationals in a very short time.Some of the technology sectors that investors should now focus on are; electric cars manufacturing, Virtual entertainment, precision medication and 3D printing. Paul Mampilly is advising investors to keep a close eye on these industries as they possess potential just like the cell phone industry

In a live interview, David Giertz states that financial advisers should speak to their clients about social security and explains the need to do so. He says that from a survey of the Nationwide Financial Retirement Institute that constitutes consumers who have retired and those who are ten years shy of retirement, the respondents indicate that their advisers are not giving them any information on social security at http://facebook.com/david.giertz2. 4 out of 5 people would rather change their financial advisers if they are not getting any advice on social security.
According to David Giertz, Social security is complex as it constitutes 27 rules that need to be understood. This complexity is what makes many advisers to ignore the topic. It is important for financial advisers to talk to clients concerning social security to ensure that they retain as many clients as possible.
Social security constitutes 40% of the retirement benefit, and this is a huge share of the amount thus warranting attention. To optimize on the retirement benefits on LinkedIn.com, people should avoid turning on social security too early. This is the knowledge that needs to be passed on to people since the results of the survey indicate that one could lose up to $12000 in a year.
