Now, he would never come out and say that because that is not the kind of individual and person that he is, overall. He is a humble person, but make no mistake about it, he has earned everything in his life. He is from the old school where people were blue-collar workers and went above and beyond. They didn’t complain about the long hours. They simply got the job done. Bob Reina is getting the job done, every single day as the CEO of the company and also as a human being.


It made major headlines when Bob Reina made a massive donation to the Tampa Bay Humane Society. It was said that he saved countless animal lives. That is Bob Reina. He cares about animals. He knows he has wealth and he knows that with that wealth, he can do something special and he can do something good. That is how he wants to do it. He does not want to phone it in, settle for less, or simply go through the motions. That is not in his DNA and it is not in his makeup. Learn more: https://ideamensch.com/bob-reina/

How Boraie Development Promotes The Arts

There are many factors that go into building a strong community. In order for communities to thrive entrepreneurs must be able to have access to the resources that they need in order to launch or run their businesses. These resources can involve having access to storefronts or technical assistance from local government agencies or associations that have been organized to serve the needs of entrepreneurs. Healthy communities must have clean air and water and local schools that are adept at educating students. Arguably another key ingredient for a thriving community is to have a thriving local arts scene. The arts are an important part of public life in that they can bolster the local economy by providing attractions that will draw tourists to the area. The arts are also important because they can give locals the opportunity to express themselves or to the chance to learn something new or be exposed to something new through an artist’s performance. In Middlesex County, New Jersey the State Theatre has long been a local arts institution that has contributed to the area’s cultural life.

The State Theatre once served as a sophisticated gathering place for locals to watch early Hollywood movies and see performances from entertainers during the early 1920s. Today the State Theatre serves as a venue that hosts dance performances, musicals such as Jersey Boys, performances from the New Jersey symphony orchestra as well as community events. For more details visit Bloomberg.

In 2016 the theatre served as the host for a fun community event known as the Free Summer Movie Series. One way to ensure that the arts have a positive impact is for them to be made available to people from a wide variety of backgrounds. The theatre’s 2016 Free Summer Movie Series was sponsored by a local business owned by developer Omar Boraie. Due to the sponsorship it received from Omar Boraie’s company the State Theatre was able to offer fun entertainment to local residents free of charge. Helping a local arts institution to have the resources it needed to produce a summer event is just one part of the impact that Omar Boraie’s business Boraie Development LLC, has had on Middlesex County. Boraie Development company was one of the key players that helped a community in Middlesex overhaul its local properties. Omar Boraie took a risk on a local housing and property market that paid off in a big way for both Boraie and the city.

The Sweetgreen dream team

Fast food chains are not always the first thing that comes to mind when trying to eat healthily. In fact, most of us dream to have a restaurant that is convenient as a fast food chain with the added benefit of not clotting our arteries with fat. Sweetgreen’s is here to the rescue, with its yummy salad recipes and quick service.

But how can Sweetgreen compete with the established major chains? Answer: With an unconventional business model.

Cofounder Nathaniel Ru majored in Business at Georgetown University. While in accounting class, Nathaniel bonded with his classmates who shared his passion for entrepreneurship. It was then, when Nathanial and his former Georgetown University peers, set out with a goal to make healthy food more accessible to those in a hurry.

Setting their location in the collegiate dense part of Georgetown, the founders had managed to survive the winter, a time when the town empties as students leave for winter break. From the time they set their first location in Georgetown, the company has successfully grown to 27 locations across six states. Read more: Sweetgreen Entreprenuers | Fortune and  Nathaniel Ru | Crunchbase

From the beginning, these founders knew that healthy fast food is a niche that needs a sound strategy to pull off effectively. Fast food is a niche that requires extensive planning since the resources available at each region would differ in supply and demand.

So, the team had to take unconventional routes. For instance, to help them focus on the customer’s needs, the founders decided that there will be no centralized headquarters for the company.

Not having a static headquarters, the company founders are able to occupy their time at the restaurant’s locations to gauge what the consumer would really want from their experience. From their feedback, they learned that the customer just wanted the freshest ingredients at the lowest prices. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: http://observer.com/2016/04/jobs-report-sweetgreen-co-founder-jonathan-neman-lives-the-sweet-life/

So, the team optimized their menu items to fit what was locally available near the restaurant. Since the menu is different for each location, this gives every Sweetgreen the opportunity to take advantage of the supply and demand conundrum.

Although their menu might not be consistent, their values of leaving the customer with a memorable experience are.

Investment Advice on Stock Market from Igor Cornelsen

Igor Cornelsen is among the world’s leaders in the field of finance. He has been a pioneer in investment strategy, and he has offered financial advice to many investors.

He has also provided expert insight into the methods that can be used to take advantage of the damaged stocks to maximize profits. Currently, Igor Cornelson is the sole Proprietor of Bainbridge Inv Inc. Learn more about Igor Cornelson: http://igorcornelsen.tripod.com/

According to Igor, investing may be an overwhelming financial practice for many people. Nonetheless, he maintains that investing is quite difficult with high risks when people do not understand what they want.

Therefore, Igor notes that investors are not supposed to lose their money. Even though it is practically impossible to reduce all the risks, depositors should try everything possible to reduce the risks and avoid losing money. Investment is primarily for profit gains but not losses.

Igor also advises potential investors to start as soon as possible since time is a critical element for most investments. He maintains that no person is too young to invest because early investments help in maximizing the profits.

Igor also notes that financial advisers are important when starting investments, especially those that are still in infant stages. Read more: Igor Cornelsen fala sobre os bancos brasileiros e o que fazer antes de investor

Before investing, individuals should seek and get a solid understanding of how to go about their investment and the viability of the investment options they choose. Additionally, Igor states that it is vital for all investors to ensure that they have diversified portfolios.

That helps in increasing a person’s possibility of gaining more income from different sources. Depositors should strike a balance between a sound investment and uncertain ventures as well. It is a good technique for ensuring that if the risky ventures fail, the sound ones succeed such that there will be no extreme loss.

Igor Cornelsen is, however, concerned about the Brazilian banking system. He states that the Brazilian government should come up with additional market-oriented reforms and fiscal austerity. That will enable investors to feel more secure and access loans easily even in the private banking system.

The process of becoming a dentist requires years of education; dental students are required to have a Bachelor’s degree, take predefined prerequisite courses, attend a four-year professional dental program, receive a Doctor of Dental Surgery or a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree and lastly, pass a licensing examination.

According to the American Dental Association, 80% of dentists practicing in the United States are general practitioners; the remaining 20% that choose to become specialty dentist will undergo additional specialized training.
