Conservative Lies

The Success Of George Soros Continues In The Wake Of Conservative Lies

The attacks on democratic political donors of recent years have continued apace, but few have taken such a personal level as that of the various attacks on hedge fund specialist George Soros. The Hungarian born financial specialist has spent the majority of his career fighting for success on Wall Street as he also fights to create a fairer world for people in countries where democracy has been restricted by dictators and oppressive political ideologies. One of those who has played a major role in attacking Soros has been the conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck who has been an important figure in shaping the view of Republican’s of George Soros.

The life of and career of George Soros often come across as that of an uplifting movie script where a young person on the brink of death fights to become one of the richest people in the world. Soros was born in Hungary in 1930 and saw his own freedom taken away with the occupation of the country by Nazi German forces who were attempting to exterminate members of the Jewish faith; the Soros family fought hard to hide their true identity during the occupation through the use of fake documents and a false identity created by George’s father.

Unfortunately for George Soros surviving the Holocaust was not the end of his ordeal under an oppressive ruler, but only the continuation of problems when Hungary fell under communist rule.

The attacks aimed at George Soros often twist the facts of the life of the refugee to try and undermine the hard work and skills of the former refugee; but these attacks have so far failed to halt Soros from continuing his good works around the world and within the borders of the U.S. George Soros has been a major supporter of liberal policies on Forbes.com and politics in the U.S., going so far as to provide funding for the Presidential campaigns of Democrat’s John Kerry and President Barrack Obama.

The tireless work of George Soros continues through his not for profit Open Society Foundations, which was recently halted from working in parts of Russia because of education programs designed to bring democracy to the oppressed of the country. Soros also works with less visible groups trying to bring democracy to various parts of the world and has achieved major success in countries including Georgia in his bid to end communism in Europe. Conservative commentators, such as Glenn Beck, have tried to reduce these achievements to reasons to mistrust George Soros without explaining the good work he has completed in many parts of the world. The personal attacks on George Soros follow a long history of antisemitic attacks on those who look to bring peace and understanding to the world we live in.

Women in Business

Doe Deere-Making the Future Vibrant

Doe Deere is the CEO and Founder of the colorful Lime Crime Cosmetics line. She was born in Russia and raised in New York City and is on a mission to prove that cosmetics are more than just cosmetics, but are a way to express freedom and self-expression.

Doe started with her own fashion line on ebay back in 2004 where she modeled everything herself. She developed the idea for her own makeup line when she couldn’t find the colors she wanted to wear anywhere. This is when Lime Crime was born.

Doe believes that beauty is what feels right at the moment. She developed and launched her very own line of vibrant, enchanting, and cruelty-free cosmetics in 2008, which gained an international fan following.

The Lime Crime name came from Doe’s favorite color and her dream to create vivid and bright makeup that should almost be illegal to wear!

Doe started out small and achieved success and the support of other women-owned entrepreneurships and business. She also speaks at public events such as PHAMExpo and Vegas Nay’s Stardust Tour in order to promote the importance of following your dreams and finding your own voice. She also enjoys being a mentor to female entrepreneurs through Intagram. Doe also regularly donates to Bide-A-Wee, an animal rescue organization that is a no-kill shelter in New York.

A typical day for Doe includes a briefing with her Creative Director and a meeting with her President and VP, before another meeting with her COO. These meetings help everyone stay on the same page. She then spends time at her lab to develop new products. Doe keeps up on her emails on the go from her iPhone 6+.

Picking up on the way consumers have changed their shopping habits from shopping in stores to online, Lime Crime was one of the very first cosmetic companies to pioneer the “on-lip” lipstick swatch.

Does success hasn’t been all uphill, but has had it’s fair share of challenges. She went through a security breach in 2014 and has had to restore her customers’ trust in her brand over time. She partnered with Trustwave and Norton to ensure that is would not happen again and it has made Doe and her company even stronger.

Doe wishes she had started Lime Crime sooner, but has learned many things on her way to becoming a successful entrepreneur, like the importance of following your gut, no matter what and to treat her employees with love and respect.

Doe gets support from her hubby and Lime-Crime partner, Mark, and they have been together since they met in a rock back 16 years ago.

Doe is an inspiration to women all over the world to dream big and to grow and nurture your ideas, because you never know what they’ll bloom into!
