Flavio Maluf Cites Entrepreneurs’ Increased Confidence in the Brazilian Growth Industry

Entrepreneur confidence in the growth industry of Brazil has experienced a number of falls from the start of 2015. Flavio Maluf, a Brazilian entrepreneur and Eucatex president, remains optimistic that the sector will experience some growth in the coming months. There is no growth that has been witnessed since August leading to rising pessimism.

Increased Confidence among Entrepreneurs

An increase in the entrepreneurs’ confidence was confirmed by ICI (Industry Confidence Index) in September. There was a 2.1 increase on the index which had suffered a retraction of one point in August. ICI reported that it reached 88.2 points in September compared to 86.1 in August. Flavio notes that this is the highest index result achieved since it got to 88.8 points back in July 2014. The ICI data is usually obtained from carrying out an analysis of executives’ perspectives on their monetary activities and others for the subsequent six months. In September, the institute had gathered opinions of over 1,120 companies.

Looking into the Future

Aloisio Campelo Junior, public statistics superintendent of Ibre/FGV expressed hope that there could be a soft improvement from the analysis of the data presented. Despite the fact that the domestic market is presenting a very slow recovery, the outlook of the coming months looks positive. This is following the over 13 points cumulative increase noted from the third to ninth month of the year 2016. This is a great step in the right direction although the numbers cannot be described as good enough. Another fact that is important is the Level of Installed Capacity (Nuci) which reported a 0.9% increase in September to reach 74.7%, the highest point since December 2015.

EOS and Their Upward Trends

January 10, 2017

For many decades, when anyone thought about lip balm, Chapstick was the brand that came to mind. Chapstick was the leader and dominated in all categories. Even with being the leader, they were still very basic and generic. The shape was the same and there were very few flavors.

This was the way of the lip balm industry up until seven years ago. This is when EOS changed the face of the lip balm company. EOS, or Evolution of Smooth, began as a small start-up and did their research before making their move.

In the beginning, EOS lip balm relied on research and research groups. They found out as much as they could about the client base and what their needs were. Once they had learned as much about the needs and wants of the lip balm industry, they got to work.

First, they brought in a clay artist. The artist created different options for shapes of the new product. Each option was carefully considered and the orb shape was chosen. The next step was to get the product into stores.

Walgreens was the first store to place the new EOS product onto the shelves. Once the happened, other stores like Target and even Lucky Vitamin quickly followed suit. The new orb took off quickly and became a hit. Popular magazines wrote about it on their pages. Celebrities were photographed using the product. Sales began to skyrocket and EOS found itself as the number two lip balm company. Chapstick had fallen below EOS and the industry had definitely seen some changes. http://www.ulta.com/brand/eos

With all of the success EOS has been having, they are still looking up. They have big plans and will continue their successful streak.

December 21, 2016

Former NBA franchise owners, Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment, have filed a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company, claiming that they have made a breach in their contract, failing to abide by their policy over the claims made by Danny Ferry, the former General Manager of the team. Bruce and his team at AHBE have stated that the lawsuit does not pertain to the Atlanta Hawks new owner, Forbes billionaire Tony Ressler, and they will in no way partake in the lawsuit. This all happened around the same time Tony Ressler and his partners bought ownership of the team, ending the 6 year long contract between the Hawks, Bruce Levenson, and Danny Ferry.

According to Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment, AIG, the insurance company in question, did not cover losses that were related to wrongful termination or workplace torts, which brought about the civil action and filing to the Superior Court. They also stated that the insurance company was contacted about the issues and the problem was thought to be settled, but ignored the problem since early 2015. The current spokesmen for the Hawks have stated they are aware of the complaint in question, but have no ties or commitments to the previous owners. Full information on the amount of the claim has not been released, as it has been held confidential for the time being.

Sam Tabar: Donald Trump Might Hike Inflation Rates

December 17, 2016

Sam Tabar is currently the COO at an institution known as FullCycle Energy Fund. He is also the CFO at Awearable Apparel, a company that is based in New York City. Sam Tabar is recognized as an attorney and capital strategist who has achieved a lot in the past. In his international financial career, the hedge fund manager has become fluent in several languages such as Japanese and French in addition to English, his native.

In a recent post, Sam Tabar claims that inflation rates will go high as the new president-elect, Donald Trump, takes office. The capital strategist says that the progress in the labor industry has continued, and the economic activities are increasing when compared to the past years. Unemployment was starting to recover under the Obama presidency, but the policies used by Trump might ruin the progress. According to the hedge fund manager, inflation in the country is below two percent, and this year, it has increased significantly.

Since Donald Trump was elected as the president, the stock market in the United States has been balancing out. The economists in the market claim that the investors seem to have more confidence in the market as the new president takes office. The experts at the futures market have predicted that the Federal Reserve will be hiking the inflation rates by one hundred percent or even more.

The primary goal of the Federal Reserve is to maximize employment rate and at the same time keep the prices stable. This organization is aware that the employment growth is impossible to maintain for a long time, but there is also room for improvements in the short term. The job market had registered an overall growth in the recent past, but the African American and Hispanic employment growth have remained stagnant for some time. Tabar also claims that these ethnic groups have continued to be the lowest income households in the United States. The capital strategist believes that if the right measures are taken in time, the country will be able to avoid getting into serious financial problems as the new president takes office.

Need to Invest in Gold

December 13, 2016

There are many reasons why one should consider researching more about the US Money Reserve and buying gold or other metals to safeguard their monetary savings. Paper money is just no longer as stable as we thought it was, if it really even was. Gold in particular is being encouraged because it’s been predicated that the price of gold will hit a record high soon. Ultimately, it would be wise to have a solid fallback, no pun intended, in case our current money system fails.


As said on the US Money Reserve website, there is a finite supply of gold. That means basically that the government cannot just print out more of it to suit its own needs. Because gold is a scarce resource, it will always be valuable. Through history, gold has always been and will always be reliable currency. It is being predicted that the value of the dollar will decrease and, in turn, gold’s will increase.


Additionally, the main website cited earlier, www.usmoneyreserve.com, goes on to state that now is definitely the time to invest due to all of the wars, tensions in the Middle East and other countries, threats of terrorism and nuclear war, etc. Since the global economy and relations are unstable at the moment, having a currency that is physically solid, sought after, scarce, and in demand will be more and more necessary. Those who choose to invest in gold are not only preparing for their future but solidifying and securing their current savings.


The US Money Reserve is physically located in Austin, Texas. They deal with gold, silver, and platinum. They employee specialists and professionals who can council those who want to invest and help them choose which metals to personally select. They even have a Facebook page with a phone number on it to contact them directly. A couple fun facts are that they have shipped over a million coins since being in business, and the coins are made by the U.S. Mint and “”fully backed by the U.S. Government.”” They have a money-back guarantee as well, so you can be sure that you’re making a refundable decision if you change your mind.


There are many different types of gold you can purchase from the US Money Reserve, including different types of coins as well as bars that come in different sizes, styles and weights. You can buy gold bars that come in 10 oz versions, 1 kilo, or down to 1 oz. You can also buy silver bars. A 13 ounce bar of gold currently goes for about $13,000 and the 1 ounce bar is being sold for about $1,300. A 100 ounce bar of silver is currently being sold for around $1,900 so it is clear to see why gold is the more “solid investment.”

Doe Deere- Helping Women Better Understand Themselves

November 29, 2016

Doe Deere, a native from Russia came to the United States when she was 17 years old. She spent a good amount of time in Russia and in New York City. Currently she lives in Los Angeles. She has always been an imaginative person and spent a good amount of her time on art. She didn’t spend much time on day dreams and dreaming of being such a big name person. Her biggest dream as a child was to be a musician. For this reason, she ended up moving to New York.

Trying to make her life as a musician helped her become a better brander. Because she learned how to make a career and how to market the right way, she was able to get her name out there that much easier. She learned how to understand people and appreciate them. When she started her makeup business, it was much easier than when she first started out trying to be a musician. She was always interested in becoming an entrepreneur.

She spent a good amount of her adulthood living in NYC. She grew up in various surroundings of New York City and by the time she left, she had been in a band and decided to enter into the beauty world. She met her husband in the band they were in and this allowed for them to collaborate on a number of things. She was able to be a part of the band but also to be a songwriter. She worked at promoting the band and this allowed for her to discover how to brand items and sell their image.

What most women do not realize or take to heart is, every person has a piece of themselves that is special. Each person is unique and has a special quality about themselves. If you learn to love yourself and appreciate yourself, it makes it easier for others to do the same. As long as you hold true to yourself, you will be able to allow others to feel the same way. This is what Doe Deere is pushing so hard for women and girls to see. By creating makeup lines that allow for girls and women to wear what makes them each feel beautiful, she is helping them to understand that they hold the key to their own happiness. This is so important for women to learn and by women like Doe Deere, pink or purple hair, glowing unicorns or anything else that might just seem like a daydream, can actually be reality.
