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.

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.

When they thought the “Closer” hit song had earned them enough, The Chainsmokers and Halsey were surprised by the song being certified diamond by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song was one of its kind as it got a lot of airplay and topped many music charts. It hit a record of 10M shipments in the United States.

The Chainsmokers and Halsey took it to their instagram accounts to announce the good news. With their photos carrying minted plagues, they couldn’t hide their excitement about their new achievement. The Chainsmokers has been consistent in releasing hit songs one after another. The award-winning DJ duo had also released “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Something Just Like This” and many other hit songs. The Grammy award-winning DJ duo consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart.

The musicians started celebrating the new status of their song long before RIAA updated its website to the effect that the song had been certified Diamond. Prior to diamond certification, “Closer” was multiple-times platinum and over time, it rose to Diamond. Back in 2016, the hit song ruled airwaves and at the end of summer, it was among the top songs in the Hot 100 chart. The song maintained No.1 position for quite long.

In various charts, the song competed with top songs from all genres emerging on top most of the times. At one point, it maintained No.1 position for so long that it was pronounced the 4th longest-running No.1 song in the history of the United States.

2016 was a good year for The Chainsmokers and Halsey, thanks to “Closer”. They were nominated to Grammy awards more than once for the song. In fact, it opened up nomination doors for the DJ band. It recorded a lot of sales that year and was also featured in Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronics chart holding No. 1 position for a long time before it was overtaken by “The Middle”.

Before releasing “Closer” The Chainsmokers had released several hit songs and had left a footprint in the world as among the best DJs in the world. However, “Closer” came with its own set of success. On the other hand, Halsey had also proved to be a rising star but the song came with a lot of fortunes and opportunities for her.

Shervin Pishevar is not the type of person to hold back when he has an opinion. In February 2018, he spent 21 hours ranting on Twitter about a variety of economic and business topics. Here are a few of the highlights from those tweets.

You Don’t Need To Be In Silicon Valley Anymore

There is no need to base your company in Silicon Valley if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. Instead, all you need is the ability to create a product or service that meets the needs of your target market. Shervin Pishevar thinks that being a business owner has become a viral concept that knows no physical boundaries.

American Infrastructure Could Be At Risk

Shervin Pishevar is critical of the fact that the United States lacks a long-term vision when it comes to infrastructure. He said that the Chinese recently built a train station in nine days. However, the United States isn’t able to do that because they don’t have consistent protocols when it comes to building bridges, roads or bus terminals. If this problem isn’t corrected soon, it could mean the end of the United States as the sole superpower in the world.

The Stock Market Could Be Volatile in 2018

Both the stock and the bond market are likely to be volatile throughout 2018 for a variety of different reasons. The thing that investors should know is that there could be a significant correction of up to 6,000 points. If you are looking for a safe place to put your money, buy gold instead of bonds.

It may also be a good idea to sell equities to lock in profits before the correction takes place. Bitcoin investors should be ready for the price of the currency to fall to as low as $2,000 a coin in the near future. At this price point, Shervin Pishevar sees the currency once again increasing in value.

For many in the world, the United States is a land where anything is possible, where if you work hard enough anything you want is yours. This image of America was no different for Doe Deere, at the time a teenager in Russia. Her daydreams of living in America would finally be realized at the age of 17 when she and her family moved to New York City. The land of opportunity was waiting for her and she was ready for it, unfortunately, that was not to be her experience in the first few years of her life across the Atlantic. Immediately her family began struggling when her mother’s educational credentials were non-existent in the U.S and had to resort to low paying jobs. Eventually, the family hit rock bottom and lived out of a homeless shelter on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. All Doe had was her family and her dreams of becoming a fashion designer.

It was not until the spring of 1999 when she and her family caught a break in the form of a woman name Dorchen Leidholdt, a social worker bent on aiding struggling immigrant families. Leidholdt would find Doe’s mother an accounting job, her sister a college education and Doe herself would be guided by Ledihoidt to the Fashion Institute of Technology after seeing her sketches. Her family was once again back on their feet, and even though she states that she never wishes that type of struggle on anyone, she would not exchange it for anything as it taught her so many valuable lessons.

In 2008, Doe Deere would finally realize her dream and founded “Lime Crime”. The company became a huge success with high sales and a team of 35 employees ready to inspire women from all over the world to be themselves. Doe Deere thanks America for everything she has, only in America can someone start off as homeless and become a CEO. She urges people to think that maybe, those immigrants who have not taken the pledge yet will be one of the ones to make America great.

An industry leader when it comes to showing readers how to invest profitably safely and more wisely, Banyan-Hill’s roster of experts have all earned their stripes in the investment field many times over, and no less can be said about Matt Badiali.

Early on, Matt Badiali worked his way from a Bachelors in Geological and Earth Sciences/Geosciences degree, to a Masters Geology/Earth Science degree. While actively pursuing his Ph.D in Sedimentary Geology, Badiali’s discernment in the scientific sector caught the attention of an industry leader, who approached him with the opportunity to travel and investigate various energy companies, to assess investment opportunities in natural resources, metals and energy.

Like a duck to water, Matt Badiali hopped aboard the investment train. He’s been using his science-fueled smarts to make investors bolder and better at it ever since. Recently, Matt Badiali made the bold assertion that one of the most undervalued metals, platinum, was slated to make a giant comeback.

Trend-watchers have been less than enthused about some metal activity lately, in part due to trade-war threats involving China, China being a huge consumer of raw metal ores. Though platinum is currently at a record low, demand for the metal is outstripping supply, which is a good sign for a boomerang back up in value. Additional factors that make platinum worthy of investors’ scrutiny include the fact that it’s more rare than gold, besides being an expensive metal to produce, making it likely that production will eventually slow and cause a greater need.

Besides its difficult to procure and produce, platinum has uses across the board in numerous industries, adding to its luster as an investment option. Badiali suggests metal investors looking to expand into platinum check out Sibanye-Stillwater, a responsible mining company that is also a major supplier to industrial manufacturers.

The supply and demand factors that make platinum a Matt Badiali pick to go for in 2018 should not be ignored. The former Duke University, Geology professor and Banyan Hill publishing pundit has spoken.
