M1nd breaks new ground, proving Jeunesse Global’s innovative mojo

Throughout the last 100 years, few goals have been pursued with as much zeal and as little success as the quixotic attempts at increasing intelligence in individuals and populations. From the school desegregation movement itself to the No Child Left Behind Act of the George W. Bush Administration, program after program has been tried to raise the intelligence of groups of people and individuals alike, all in unrequited vain.

But there have been a few limited successes. One example is the introduction of certain classes of psychotropic stimulants, which psychologists determined were able to help people focus. In many cases, this increase in focus has actually enabled students and others who require high levels of sustained focus to do better on tests that are valid proxies for IQ. Whether or not these drugs, such as Ritalin and Adderall, have the ability to actually increase intelligence is still a source of debate. But there is no doubt that they work to increase mental stamina and ability to focus on a sustained basis.

There is another mechanism by which these and other drugs may work to effectively increase intelligence. That is because while researchers have never found a reliable way to unequivocally raise intelligence, they have found a wide range of ways to lower it. And it turns out that one of the most effective ways to immediately and significantly lower intelligence in almost anyone is through simple sleep deprivation. Ritalin, Adderall and other prescription stimulants are highly effective at reducing or completely eliminating the effects of sleep deprivation, especially over limited time frames.

This has major implications. Because almost every working American is sleep deprived, this has a severe negative effect on overall intelligence and, by extension, productivity. Now, Jeunesse Global has devised the first-ever mental energy drink. Known as M1nd, the drink is able to act on the brain in much the same way as prescription stimulants. But M1nd is 100 percent all-natural, having none of the potentially dangerous side effects of drugs like Ritalin.

M1nd has been shown to reverse the effects of sleep deprivation and help users to concentrate more intently and for longer.

Meet Arab Billionaire Real Estate Developer, Hussain Sajwani

Emirati businessman and real estate developer, Hussain Sajwani, is the founder and CEO of global leading real-estate development company, DAMAC Properties, which specializes in luxury property development and is credited with using such fashion powerhouses as Versace to design the interiors of its luxury apartments; as well as enlisting the services of Tiger Woods, who has reportedly designed golf courses that are curiously managed by Donald Trump Properties. Sajwani, who is listed as the fourth richest Arab on Forbes most recent billionaire listing, has a reported net worth of over $4 billion. Although, his DAMAC properties is one of the world’s most successful property management companies– boasting more than 40,000+ holdings globally–Sajwani’s entrepreneurial beginnings were a bit more humble.

He was born in UAE in the 1950s, as the son of a local Emirati businessman, who successfully sold items like pens, watches and other assorted Chinese-imported goods from his small shop. Sajwani, who regularly visited and observed his father at work in his shop every day as a young boy; apparently, had bigger goals and was one of the first Emiratis to be awarded a government university scholarship to study in the United States. He went on to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics from the University of Washington.

Once he returned home, he first worked in the finance department, as a contracts manager at UAE public utility company, Abu Dhabi Gas Industries. However, after only working the corporate grind for a short time; Sajwani made his first foray into entrepreneurship as a food caterer, eventually establishing contracts with U.S. government and military contractors, such as Bechtel. Hussain Sajwani’s catering business is still successful today and is now called Global Logistics Services. The company has grown from its humble beginnings to currently managing more than 200 projects and serving more than 150,000 meals a day globally in the Middle East, Africa and the Russian Federation. In addition to providing meal catering to military sites, Global Logistics also provides food services to construction sites, educational institutions and five-star hotels throughout the world and also offers site management, power logistic services, and employee management.

After the success of his catering company, Sajwani turned his astute business-stewardship to luxury property development in the 1990s when it was still a relatively new concept. He was responsible for leading the charge in building several hotels in the early 2000s for the growing surge in foreign business and trade in Dubai at the time. In 2002, Sajwani founded the now hugely successful, Hussain Sajwani of DAMAC Properties, which is publicly traded on Dubai’s version of the Stock Exchange and employs more than 2,000.

Hussain Sajwani: The Real Estate Empire Owner Who Got Hit Big But Rose Again

There are many success stories in business today that describe how leaders have shaped the landscape of the real estate industry, but none of them could probably compare to the success that Hussain Sajwani, DAMAC owner and founder, has achieved so far. And in an exclusive interview with Arabian Business, we learn more about how he was able to grow his empire and the challenges that he had to go through to rise higher.

 

The World’s Tenth Richest Arab

We can already read from Forbes official list of billionaires that DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani is now the tenth richest Arab in the world. He is even estimated to be worth $3.7bn, especially after DAMAC had just been declared as the world’s fourth-biggest public firm in 2017, only having Emaar as its only real and worthy competition. However, all of this success would not have been possible without the kind of risk-taking and perseverance that Hussain had to have to reach it.

 

The Build, Lease, Sell, Next Business Model

It is also revealed in the interview that Hussain Sajwani’s prime business model for DAMAC properties can be summarized in one line: Build, Lease, Sell. Next next-next. What makes him stand out is not through overthinking, but by doing. He always does things that other non-risk takers won’t do. So when he builds infrastructures, he immediately sticks to a simple business plan and moves on to the next phase, applying the same formula. Such simple strategy has already generated some of the best profitable results in the entire career of Mr. Hussain.

 

Hussain Sajwani is also known for diversifying his assets. Recall, he went in the world of stock market investments in 1997 and 2002, and he also owned holdings in Bahrain under the insurance industry and owned in Oman a ceramics factory. It is through such diversity that he’s able to fund most of his later projects that even made him more money. This doesn’t mean, however, that Hussain had not experienced a significant amount of failure. When DAMAC Properties got so big, it risked itself to ruin by crashing down, but because of such attitude on diversity, Mr. Hussain eventually recovered.

Mike Baur Explains That Ideas Are Flashes of Inspiration

Mike Baur is a forty two year old successful businessman. He is the founder of the startup company accelerator the Swiss Startup Factory. Like its name implies, it is a company that is there to help young people start their very own successful startup businesses.

 

Mike Baur laughed when he was asked whether he could give people a hint on how to come up with good and brilliant ideas for their new startup businesses. He said that he can not give a hint and that he does not have to give a hint.

 

The reality is that ideas will come to you of their own nature, says Mike Baur. Ideas will come to you when you hustle and when you work hard. When you are constantly thinking about new ideas, a sudden flash of inspiration will enter your brain with a brilliant idea that you would never have thought of on your own. The reality is that we all have the ability to come up with these ideas. All you have to do is work hard and make sure that you develop your innovative spirit. Your innovative spirit is the most important thing when it comes to new ideas which you can turn into successful businesses. You have to develop the creative part of your mind in order to be successful.

 

Sometimes you will be trying to buy something when you realize that a certain product or service is missing from the market. It may be missing from the market around the world, or it may just be missing from the market in your own country. Regardless, you should take the opportunity to think how you can fill the gap that exists in the market. If you offer a service that people need but which has not been offered before in your country, you will succeed. There is a very good chance of success, at least. This is because the competition will be low and the demand for your services will be high.

 

You have to have a certain mindset of an entrepreneur, says Mike Baur. This mindset will help you think of ideas to fill gaps in the market. Once you do have an idea, you have to come up with a way to fulfill them. The reality is that these days, it is a lot easier to implement your ideas.

Shervin Pishevar Talks of the Need for American Entrepreneurs to Outsource Talents

Shervin Pishevar is a renowned entrepreneur in America. He has made significant steps since he migrated into the US from Iran. This is evident from the success of the companies he has worked with and co-founded. As an angel investor, he has to be constantly looking at the state of the US economy, tech innovations (where he has mainly invested), and globalization. The current state of the American economy might just be the one that triggered him to storm Twitter with 50 tweets in 21 hours in February 2018.

In one of his tweets, Shervin Pishevar gets nostalgic about a trip he had to Romania back in 2009. Basically, this is intended to show that there is a lot of talent out there that American entrepreneurs need to exploit. After all, there aren’t enough American-born engineers in the United States to supply the skill set needed in their companies. Shervin Pishevar tweets that “Wrote some of the seeds of this on a trip To Romania recruiting a young talented coder to SGN in 2009.” This tweet is followed by a picture of an essay which talks about the need for American entrepreneurs to reach out to the talent across the world. It is where the future lies.

Shervin Pishevar shows support for globalization. He is in line with the idea that the world has evolved, and knowledge is no longer defined by culture or geographical locations. Today, the world can be likened to a global village. America is no longer a monopoly when it comes to entrepreneurship. There are many people out there with skills as good, and even better than those that American entrepreneurs look for in their countrymen.

He notes in his essay that embracing talent from elsewhere is one of the best ways to learn. This is one of the best ways to build a great America, especially with the unpredictable and ever-changing financial markets. Evidently, Shervin’s word has come to be true 9 years down the line. He himself notes that “Now 9 years after that essay the world has evolved away & beyond us. And the chickens are coming home to roost.”

The Fagali’I Airport – Ups And Downs. Today, Standing Tall!

The Fagali’I airport is a small airport located just a few minutes from the center of Apia. Visitors can get a flight going out to Pago Pago and Savai’i territories. Visitors fly in from all around the world, all throughout the year. Weather averages 85 degrees all year long, even in the winter time. The Fagali’I airport is currently conducting sufficient business as suppose. But, there was a point in time when the airport had some issues, causing shutdowns and loss of revenue.

In the late 20th century, around the 1990’s, the Fagali’I airport was criticized by many people because of their grass landing strip. At the time, it was considered as outdated. The owners of the airport, Polynesian Airlines and the Samoan government, decided that it was time for an upgrade and so they took action. The airport was shut down, but re-opened on July 6, 2002.

During the Fagali’I airport’s new commission, adding a pavement landing strip, it would get many complaints about an increased noise level. The noise would pose a hazard on the community. The airport had no choice but to de-commission to improve matters for the sake of the Fagali’I village. The airport de-commissioned in January of 2005.

It would be roughly four years later, July 1, 2009, when the airport would get matters squared away and re-open. The noise levels were under control and planes were flying in and out of the airport yet again. In addition to just re-opening its doors, the Fagali’I airport would add a new flight to its list of destinations: Pago Pago, Capital of American Samoan.

The doors of the airport would open for business again, but another problem would re-surface: a lack of transportation accommodations according to expedia.com. Visitors would land in at the airport, but when stepping outside, behold: no taxis, no buses, no shuttles. Visitors would walk into disappointment and did not want to experience that feeling again.

The Fagali’I airport would make the necessary adjustments to provide sufficient traveling accommodations. And, today, visitor walks into an outside scene where there is more than enough transportation to get them to the nearest hotel, without a problem.

The Fagali’I airport stands tall today.
