Adam Milstein is an investor and pro-Israeli activist who has done quite a bit for Jewish Americans. He has also worked with Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate company, for many years and has served the company as a sales agent as well as a managing partner. Adam Milstein co-founded the Israeli American Council (IAC) in 2007 in the city of Los Angeles and now serves as the organization as its national chairman of the board.
Over the years, Adam Milstein has helped to grow the IAC so that it now has twelve regional councils in different parts of the U.S.A. He also co-founded the Milstein Family Foundation with this wife, Gila, and has done a lot to help the Jewish American community through the foundation. Milstein has worked very hard to further the goals of these organizations and as nonprofits, the most challenging part has been securing the funding needed to continue their work. Adam Milstein and his wife not only donate plenty of money to pro-Israel organizations, but they have also donated a lot of their time.
Adam Milstein created the Donor Forum in order to quicken the process of finding funding. The Forum works by letting organizations present their cases in just 15 minutes during a lunch and helps to personally connect philanthropists with the organizations they wish to help. The Donors Forum requires its members to donate at least $10,000 a year to the causes they choose, and any organization that wishes to make a pitch to receive funding from donors must pass a pre-screening first. This ensures that the organizations that the Donor Forum works with are legitimate.
One benefit of being a part of the Donor Forum is that organizations can find out if they will receive funding very quickly. This allows them to get back to the work they are normally focused on. There are many different organizations and presenters who work with the Donor Forum, and a couple of these include JLens and the Reservists on Duty. As a pioneer, Adam Milstein and others are now wondering if anyone else will follow in the footsteps of the Donor Forum to create something similar.
GreenskyCredit is a thriving financial technology company that is revolutionizing the way people obtain loans for a variety of purposes. According to Wikipedia, the company was co-founded in 2006 by David Zalik in Atlanta, GA.
A New Way to Obtain Funding
Unlike other companies that provide financing for their customers, GreenskyCredit actually doesn’t loan the money. Instead, they partner with federally insured creditors who have a reputation for excellence. Greensky Credit works as the middleman by obtaining the capital and brokering the deal between the financial institution and the customer. For example, a contractor will negotiate with a Greensky Credit representative to help the homeowner get ideal terms on financing for a remodeling project or a new build.
Greensky Credit has enjoyed an incredible amount of success since its humble beginnings. It was piloted by David Zalik himself, from his basement for years. Once the company began to gain traction, it achieved unheard of success to the tune of 3.6 billion in total revenue to date as quoted in a recent article posted to Bloomberg Businessweek. That figure is steadily climbing and projected to continue over the next several years.
One of the key factors of the companies continued success is its commitment to providing funding to lenders with favorable credit scores and history. This ensures that the loans are paid and the company is able to collect their share of the returns they are given for bringing the customer to the bank that is lending the money. The company also has employees who reach out to the customer and contractors to present an opportunity for a loan rather than waiting for the customer to come to the lender.
It stands to reason that Greensky Credit will continue to be one of the top financial technology companies in the market. Its revolutionary concept has brought a new dimension to standard practices and paves the way for other companies to follow its lead.
Shervin Pishevar thinks that gold is a good investment in the short term. This is one of the nuggets of positive information I was able to glean off of his latest Twitter rant. The rant lasted a little less than 24 hours and nobody is really sure why the former head of Sherpa Capital took to Twitter so aggressively.
But I’m going to take advice where I can find it. Shervin Pishevar has built empires based on his knowledge of the economy and some of this information is actionable. He believes that gold is going to rise in value as the stock market collapses more than 6,000 points. This dire prediction can actually make an investor a lot of money.
Most people do not know that they can make money off a downturn in the stock market. You can invest in safe bets like gold when the economy collapses. You can also bet against the stock market and make money when everything tanks. And Shervin Pishevar believes everything is about to tank big time.
I would advise pulling your money out of Bitcoin. He believes the cryptocurrency is about to crash down to the $2000-$5000 range. He also believes that Bitcoin will continue to rise slowly over the next two years. I would wait for the currency to collapse before buying up as much as I could so long as I had the money to make a long-term investment.
I would be pulling my money out of bonds and equities, as well. Shervin Pishevar predicts that these two markets will become extremely volatile with the bond market trying to rally after the stock market collapses. It will do so for only a short period of time before it and the equities market collapse. He believes that this is all due to the president’s trade wars.
It seems that Shervin Pishevar also recommends pulling investments out of Silicon Valley. He believes that innovation has stagnated in the tech valley and that others will innovate beyond their comprehension. Innovation, he says, is a borderless idea and not confined to a geographical area.
The end goal of every business person is to immerse a lot of wealth and create a legacy. You want people to remember your time in the industry. The currency CEO of the UTC says that a CEO of a company is a steward. This means that you have to ensure that by the time you are leaving the organization, everything is better than you found it. Well, this perfectly describes Louis Chenevert.
Louis Chenevert is remembered every day in UTC because most of the things that the company is enjoying today, is as a result of the effort that he made and his intelligent decisions. The reign of Louis Chenevert lasted for less than a decade but what he did for the company will last for many decades.
Louis Chenevert encouraged the UTC firm to invest in high innovation future technology. Although this seemed like too must to ask, the firm is now enjoying the fruits of the investment. The GTF engine that Louis purchased from the Pratt & Whitney is currently being used in more than 70 aircraft by 14 airlines. This is because it reduces fuel consumption and emission of gases as well.
Louis Chenevert also believes that the only way a leader can be effective in their job is by having a solid team behind them. You cannot achieve your goals by yourself. You need a team to help in the evaluation of your goals. This explains why when other employers were busy conducting laying offs to get past the financial crisis, Louis Chenevert did not consider this option. Similarly, when others began moving their production units to nations from which they believed they could get cheap labor, he also did not follow them.
Louis Chenevert believes that cheap labor will only compromise the quality of the services. For this reason, whenever he saw engineers on a site that was no longer productive, instead of cutting off their services, he moved them to another productive location. Louis Chenevert encourages the young business people to investin their team to ensure that the services they get are quality. It is through a great team that dreams are lived.
