Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water began in 2012 in a city south of Hilo on the Big Island. Ryan Emmons started the company and sources the Waiakea spring water from the Kea’au Aquifer at the base of the Mauna Loa Volcano where it filters through 14,000 ft of volcanic rock. He attended the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Branding and Entrepreneurship.
During his time he partnered with Matt Meyer to focus on sustainability in beginning the company. He was a Rath Scholar. Ryan grew up spending summers and winters in Hawaii with his family, and when he realized he had access to the naturally filtrated water he decided to start a company that provides a healthy, sustainable, and ethical bottled water alternative.
It is a carbon neutral company and is one of the first water bottle companies to receive the certification. Organic Auhority has it that Waiakea water participates in local reforestation projects. The manufacturing process of the recycled bottles reduces carbon emissions by 90%, and it is powered by 33% renewable energy.

The company is based on the platform of a charitable giving and global responsibility. For every liter of water purchased, the company donates 650 liters of clean water to Africa through Pump Aid. This has provided clean water to over 1.65 million people to date, and built more than 3,2000 Elephant pumps. Combined, this has provided more than 500 million liters of water.
According to Baby Boomster, Waiakea water has seen enormous growth and the product is now available in over 2,000 stores in the United States. This growth prompted the construction of another factory in Hawaii. The packaging is eco-conscious and differs from typical bottled water.
It is BPA free and made from 100% recycled materials. Waiakea water is healthy and more importantly it is naturally alkaline with a pH of 8.8. It is rich in electrolytes such as sodium, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Waiakea contains silica which is shown to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.
In January 2017, Waiakea ranked #1 in volcanic water. It received more award for health and environmentalism than any other beverage in North America.
Finding people that will fit into a certain industry’s culture is always a challenge. Once the people are identified and recruited, the next step is to keep them. Executive recruiters are trained to pick the best of the best during a certain period of time, but many recruiters drop the ball when it comes to going above and beyond to find long-term employees. Recruiting employees that contribute their talent and ideas to one company for years is not easy. Julie Zuckerberg, the head recruiter for Deutsche Bank in New York, knows how to recruit executives that want a permanent home. Trying to find the perfect person for a certain position takes intuition and some knowledge of the position. Zuckerberg likes to follow a few important steps when she is recruiting for Deutsche Bank. Julie is constantly in contact with other recruiters, executive search firms, and university placement offices. She knows social media plays an important role in finding executives these days, so she is online networking and searching for candidates. But she looks internally before she starts to search externally to fill a position. Promoting and making lateral moves from within does a lot for company morale.
Julie knows how to tap into the existing employee pool and get tips and information about potential candidates. Using employees to find new recruits is one of the best ways to find people that will fit into the culture. But that’s not always the case. Using employees to help recruit is a delicate undertaking for an executive recruiter, according to Zuckerberg. Julie knows how to use all the tools of her trade effectively. Old behavior is the best indicator of future behavior, and Zuckerberg doesn’t forget that when she is recruiting. Julie likes to recruit executives that can function effectively, and be productive immediately, so she follows a strategy that makes sure the people she recruits can do that. The easiest way to recruit is finding talent within the company, but that’s not always possible. That’s why she is constantly networking with other recruiters. Recruiting is a never-ending process.
Zuckerberg is a seasoned executive recruiter. She has recruited for Citibank, Hudson, and Recruiter Network. Julie studied philosophy at the City University of New York-Brooklyn, and she attended New York Law School. Zuckerberg learned early in her career that talent is the first quality to look for when recruiting. It’s hard to train people that have missing talent, according to Zuckerberg. She looks for strengths first, Julie doesn’t believe that candidates with questionable habits and weak performance can be trained to do something they don’t care to do. Zuckerberg measures talent and compatibility first, and that strategy has paid off. Benefit packages mean a lot to new recruits, especially if they are part of the Millennial generation. Flexible hours and benefit plans that can be synced to a spouse or a partner’s plan is another method of recruiting high-achievers. But Julie still has time to run and to appreciate art at various functions. She is also a photographer and a nature lover.

Doe Deere is the creative force behind the Lime Crime cosmetic company. She developed her business in 2008 after discovering a need for makeup that was colorful, fun and allowed wearers to express themselves in an unapologetic manner. At that time, she had found it very hard to find colors in the makeup aisle of local shops that were not neutral and made with a sole purpose of hiding imperfections. Doe began formulating her own cosmetics because she believed that makeup should be about what feels right at the moment instead of what would make the user look her best.
The business woman first started over the Internet where she would film YouTube videos of herself wearing her cosmetics. Her followers instantly loved her look and showed an interest in purchasing makeup that was bold and daring. She came up with name herself by combining her favorite color with the word “crime” because wearing shiny and metallic colors could be so distracting to others that they could be illegal in some places. Deere began formulating whimsical shades of lipsticks, eye shadows, and nail polishes to sell to the public. Her line instantly became successful and continues to attract a faithful following as well as new-comers who want to be more outrageous with their ensemble.
Deere wants to be a role model for female entrepreneurs and remains an advocate in helping women open their own businesses by discovering her passions. She has been a spokeswoman at events such as Vegas Nay’s Stardust Tour and PHAMExpo to encourage women to be their own bosses. she has mentored other female entrepreneurs who have needed advice when launching their products and services.
At Lime Crime, Doe Deere begins each workday with a meeting with her Creative Director to comes up with ideas and discuss long term and short term goals. As a CEO, Deere then meets with her President and Vice President. She has a lot of meetings scheduled but it keeps everyone in her business on the same page. Deere often answers customer service inquiries right from her smartphone.
Deere comes up with new products for Lime Crime by waiting for inspiration to come to her. She admits that it could take several weeks for her to get inspired, but once she has a great idea for a new line she gets right to work on it. To her, this is what make Lime Crime’s makeup authentic. The founder focuses strongly on the e-commerce market. She markets through social media so that she can get instant feedback and connect with her fans. However, she does have some products sold in physical retail stores such as Urban Outfitters for people who like shopping in brick and mortar stores.

Collectible gold coins are an excellent investment for those who wish to avoid stocks and bonds, and they may make purchases given the current value of gold. The market is quite strong, and it provides a support system of investment that will produce quite a lot of cash in the future. This article explains why US Money Reserve gold coins are the go-to item for investors who wish to diversify outside stocks and bonds.
#1: What Are The Coins?
US Money Reserve coins are created using gold designed in a mold, and the mold carries a design that is quite a lot of fun to look at. The coins become collectible items that will stand the test of time before they are sold. They may sit in a family home for generations before they are sold, and it is a collection that will bring prestige to the family because gold coins are seen as a status symbol. Anyone may purchase the coins, and they may offer the coins as gifts if they choose.
#2: The Designs Change
The designs of the coins are altered on a rotating basis, and they become rare items once each run of coins ends. The coins rise in price when they become rare, and they become a collector’s item that may be sold for multiple times its original price. It is quite exciting to own a coin everyone wants, and it becomes the coin in the collection that will validate the rest of the collection.
#3: Owners May Sell At Any Time
Owners are free to sell their coins at any time, and they must sell when they believe the value cannot be any higher. The idea behind a gold coin investment is profit, and profits rise when the coins are sold at the peak of their value. Peak value for every coin is different given its size and design. Owners may find the coins peak when they are most wanted, and other coins will peak when the price of gold cannot seem to rise any higher.
The finest gold coins in the world are produced by US Money Reserve, and the company will produce new designs every year that entice new buyers. Collectors may add to their collections, and they will find it quite simple to purchase new coins when they run across a design they love. Investment is simplified under a gold coin system.
When Bob Reina created Talk Fusion, he had a few people in mind. He had the people in mind that were simply looking for an easier way to communicate with others, which is always nice. After all, two of their most popular features are video email and video chat. These work really well and are great for people that live long distance from one another. They never have to worry about being too far away from each other. These are very intimate and they allow for people to chat in a variety of ways and have that personal touch.
He also created this for people that are dreamers and have great business ideas. Maybe they just have not figured out how to get this business in motion or get it off the ground. They are just confused, which is natural when it comes to life at certain points. Everyone runs into a certain situation where they don’t really know what to do or how to handle something that life has dealt them. There is nothing, at all, wrong with that. It just shows that someone is human and they have feelings and emotions.
Bob Reina, though, has now given them all of the tools they need to succeed and live out that dream and that business idea. They can work from home and they can have everything they have ever wanted right at their fingertips. Nothing can stop them except for themselves. They also know that when they are part of the Talk Fusion family, they are part of something that is all about giving back. That is the DNA of Talk Fusion and especially Bob Reina.
It is no secret that he made a record-shattering donation to the Tampa Bay Humane Society. This is big money that is going to go a long way for these animals. It will change their lives. He has also encouraged his employees to give back as well, as they can give Talk Fusion to one charity of their choosing, which can really impact that charity in a positive way for the future. That is progress.
Igor Cornelsen is an expert investor, and a retired banker. He works with Bainbridge Group with investing in the stock market. He became famous with his investing prowess while in Brazil, where he became one of the country’s top bankers. He managed a large part of the investment portfolio of the country. Currently Igor lives in South Florida, where he enjoys golf and his retirement. He still dabbles in the investing markets from time to time.
The world is beginning to become interested in the Brazilian economy, after last summer’s 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The games awakened an interest people have in the country as an investment target. Brazil needs to focus on becoming the market oriented economy that proved successful for it before 2008. The “new economic matrix”, which was government driven, cause major declines in stock prices in the country. Current GDP growth is less than 2%, disappointing investors. The country is still the eighth largest economy in the world.
Igor Cornelsen recommends that people considering investing in Brazil, should be prepared for a lot of new regulations in the country. The labor market is very rigid, taxes are high, and the bureaucracy are obstacles to investors. Igor claims that the Brazilian market is growing, just fragile. Cornelsen claims that even though the market is tricky, those who put in the work to find the good values, will be paid handsomely in the end.
Igor suggests on his blog that investors change the way they view the stock market. Quick trades rarely work, but investing for the long haul usually does work. Look for companies who have had their stock prices damaged, rather than damaged companies. When you do this, just wait until the tides turn. You will have much more success than looking for a quick profit. Learn more about Igor on Snappages, or you can also see his career story on CNN.
