For victims of domestic violence, abuse can come in many forms. Whether it is physical, mental, or emotional abuse the damage left by abusers can be both internal and external and the victims of this abuse need care and healing to move on from the damage inflicted. It is important that survivors set up self-care such as therapy, creative outlets, exercise, hygiene routines, and self affirmations in order to change the abuse outlook that has been pressed upon them during the cycle of abuse.

 

According to alivenewspaper, the state experiences the highest rate of domestic violence in the United States, with some sort of instance of domestic violence happening every 7 minutes. Although both men, women, and children can be the victims of abuse, women experience it at a much greater rate. With this in mind, Genucel has been supporting women and their families who are in need of support following domestic violence in their lives. Women Aware knows how important it is for survivors to pick up their lives and change the narrative they have been told by their abusers. To support this mindset, Women Aware debuted their Moving Beyond Abuse 5K Race & Charity Walk in 2019 in order to support women and families in their community to move on.

 

 

Helping to support the 5K endeavor is Genucel; not only are they making monetary contributions to help make the walk possible but they are contributing gift bags filled with their products to lift the spirits of the Women Aware clients. Genucel knows how important it is for abuse survivors to feel good about themselves both inside and out in order to actively participate in self-care. Genucel’s products help in a variety of ways, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and increasing the firmness of the skin using their patented PhotoCellTec technology. Using this technology, Genucel’s hope is that they are able to ease the burden and journey survivors go through in order to rediscover their best selves. https://yourbeautycraze.com/genucel-skin-care-routine/

 

Guilherme Paulus is currently a billionaire in the Forbes List of the wealthiest men in the world. The man who booms in the tourism sector co-founded a leading tourism agency called CVC Brasil when he met Vicente Cerchiari in 1972 when he was 24 years old. Vicente left the company about four years later. With the guidance of Guilherme Paulus, CVC Brasil has been in a position to provide more than 10,000 clients with high-end travel packages coupled with affordable prices.

When he met Vicente, a leading government official, Paulus didn’t have the capital to establish a tour and travel agency. Their conversation coincided since they aspired to invest in the tourism industry. Since he was a committed student at that moment, Paulus learned more about the industry before joining the sales and marketing department. He would later show some interest in starting an agency that has since assisted clients to travel to their destination through various touring packages.

At the same time, Guilherme Paulus chose a strategic location for the agency. He realized that many Brazilians lacked the opportunity to book their air tickets at their convenience. Therefore, he intended to build the business in order to provide such clients with the chance to travel by convenient transportation systems while developing the country. Throughout his career, Paulus has recognized that it’s vital to give back to the less fortunate who need emotional and financial support. For instance, he is a contributor to the PIET foundation that caters to young generations who aspire to join the tourism sector. His interest is providing extensive care for poor teenagers by channeling funds toward medical care, educational classes as well as psychological counseling.

Guilherme Paulus has received outstanding recognition from different states and governments including France. He is admired for creating many employment opportunities to the youth as well as the established entrepreneurs who would like to be in the business. In 2017, he received Entrepreneur of The Year Award following his contribution to developing the tour industry. Until now, Guilherme Paulus has established a strong reputation as the head cheerleader of the sector.

Transformers movie franchise has made significant revenues in the entertainment world significantly. As an outcome, JD.com (Jiangdong) is taking advantage of movie’s success and partnering with Hasbro and Paramount, which are major companies in the entertainment industry across the globe, to release this year’s sequel titled “Bumblebee.” This film is about a robot/car named Bumble, which found itself in a junkyard in California in 1987 when trying to run away from the war on his planet. After being revived by 18-year-old Charlie, who is trying to find her identity, she learns that the car is unique.

It is relevant to note that this is not the first time that Jiangdong is getting involved in the release of a Transformers sequel. In 2017, the entity collaborated with Hasbro in releasing “Mission Red,” which featured Red Knight and Optimus Prime, as they fulfilled their goal of protecting the energon fuel source. In partnership with Hasbro, JD.com has also put life into Red Knight by presenting to fans an action figure of the robot. Since its release in December 2018, anyone who wants to access this version of Red Knight can only use Jiangdong.

JD.com is one of the largest online companies in the retail industry in China, and it was established in 2004 by Richard Liu Qiangdong. Richard Liu decided to take the business into the e-commerce arena after the then computer accessories business which he had started in 1998 risked closure due to the SARS epidemic that was experienced in 2004. Currently, the company’s assets are worth about $60 billion. Jiangdong has succeeded by taking advantage of partnerships and business opportunities that present themselves. As an outcome, the company launched a sales promotion titled “Super Bumblebee Day,” which played a significant role in boosting the company’s revenues as it coincided with the January 4 release of the film in China. JD.com has more than 300 million customers who are mainly in China. This customer-base benefited companies such as Panasonic and Hasbro, among others, significantly. The customers bought the available bumblebee themed products from all companies by making orders through the JD.com platform.

Ted Bauman recently wrote one his newsletter’s for Banyan Hill publishing about Apple and the company’s stock. Bauman had some information to give his readers regarding his predictions of the company’s future. Apple is a company that many look up to and would be willing to pay higher prices for in the past.

However, Ted Bauman does not see this as something that will continue. Steve Jobs once donated some Apple computers to the schools in the United States. When he did so, he told many he was committed to education. It also seems, he bought the loyalty of buyers from the generation of students who used those Apple computers in their school.

Today, it seems as though Apple sales and revenue are beginning to decline. There are not as many people who are willing to pay more for an Apple product as there used to be. Ted Bauman warns many that the stock for Apple will continue to fall if the company does not find a new loyalty of customers soon.

Apple is a company that used to own the market share for the smartphone. But today, they only hold this market share in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. Overall, the global market share for Apple and its smartphone is only 20%.

Ted Bauman was born and raised in the Washington DC area. After completing high school, he moved to South Africa. While in South Africa, Bauman worked for many organizations. Ted Bauman worked as an ambassador to the United Nations while he lived in South Africa.

He spent more than two decades in South Africa. When he moved back to the United States, he settled near Atlanta, Georgia. He worked as a consultant for some time. However, he found his real passion, which was working with Banyon Hill Publishing, not too long after he settled back in the United States.

Bauman and his wife have a daughter. He enjoys spending quality time with his family. Every morning before Ted begins working; Bauman takes his daughter to school. He enjoys watching her excel in all she attempts.

Alastair Borthwick lived a rich life full of adventure as a writer that covered the world of climbing back in 1930’s Scotland. During this time, the world was going through a great deal of changes and uncertainty as the economy had fallen apart. Unemployment was high and people were finding themselves out of work for extended periods of time. They were looking for things to do that were affordable for people with little to no income and climbing fit the bill.

While climbing and hiking are popular amongst everyone today, it was not like this when Alastair Borthwick first began writing about the topic. The rich were pretty much the only ones who were climbing and they would frequently share their experiences in far off locations. Unlike the elite, he wrote from the perspective of the common people who were taking to the hills of Scotland. From hobos to young people, he met a variety of characters and got into many adventures at the time. He published his book on the subject in 1939 named Always a Little Further.

Even today, the book is still selling and is seen as one of the most important works on the subject. It still inspires people to get into the world of hiking and trying to see just a little bit more of the world. His works on the subject were first published in the Glasgow Weekly Herald. The Open Air column in which his columns were featured about climbing was not the only thing that he did for the paper. He also worked on other features such as the crossword and other columns.

In 1935, Alastair Borthwick left his position at the Glasgow Weekly Herald and joined the Daily Mirror back in 1935. The paper was headquartered in London and he soon left to begin working for the BBC. He was seen as a very gifted speaker and was able to inspire many people throughout his career with his work. Throughout everything, he remained modest about his accomplishments and continued to represent the every man from his early days.

Did you know that your leadership style may be the biggest impediment to your business success? Style, in this case, refers to every aspect of how you run the enterprise. It touches on how you relate with your employees by way of interactions, encouragement, encouraging and welcoming criticism as well as cultivating a sense of belonging for all employees. Paul Saunders, the chief executive Officer and co-founder, closely follows these business reports and here are his top three picks on leadership style changes with the biggest impact on business productivity: Learn more: https://vimeo.com/272365860

 

Be a supporter not a leader

 

According to Paul, there is a thin between leadership and servanthood and every business leader should strive to be a supporter of his team. Instead of the usual delegation associated with most individuals in leadership positions, Paul advice business leaders to consider the more relatable support approach to leadership.

 

He gives an example of the managers at Facebook and how their shift in leadership mentality has played an even bigger role in advancing the company’s mission than their innovativeness. He mentions that managers at the technology company don’t approach their position with a leadership mindset. Rather they strive to sort the efforts of the team entrusted to them.

 

Encourage criticism

 

A business leader should also encourage and welcome criticism. Consider cultivating creativity within the enterprise where every employee is allowed to come up with more innovative approaches to business projects, individually or collectively in a team. More importantly, be approachable.

 

A significant number of employees with revolutionary ideas as well as genuine and cost-saving criticism base never bring them up to the management. They either fear their managers and team leaders or simply aren’t sure how these superiors would react to criticism and this costs businesses both time and resources. Remaining approachable listening to your employee ideas and contributions goes a long way in tearing down the imaginary employee-employer communication barrier.

 

Take everyone’s opinion into account

 

How do you cultivate a sense of belonging within the workplace? By ensuring that every employee is treated equally and fairly. Paul Saunders believes that this should start by ensuring that each of these employees getting an equal chance to contribute to company projects and discussions. Most importantly, take a genuine interest in all these suggestions, criticism, and ideas.
