You may not have heard of Doe Deere, but you may have heard of “Lime Crime,” the successful cosmetic line in which she is the founder and CEO. “Lime Crime” was created from Deere’s idea that beauty isn’t about what looks best, but what feels right at the moment. Make-up shouldn’t just be about concealing imperfections, but a way to express oneself as a form of freedom, art, and self-expression. With those ideas in mind, she launched her own cosmetic line of vibrant, colorful, magical, and bold colors and the consumers embraced it. The cosmetics also were cruelty-free/animal friendly; a cause very deal to Deere’s heart. An animal lover, she regularly donates to an animal rescue organization called Bide-A-Wee, a no-kill shelter in New York that helps rehabilitate and re-home abandoned cats and dogs.
Lime Crime was one of the first cosmetic companies to do most of their advertising on the internet. When she developed Lime Crime, she decided to market it through e-commerce and was discouraged to do this by the experts (understandably) because they believed a cosmetic line was not a fit for the internet. Most women want to try lipsticks on for themselves before buying. Deere stepped up to the challenge and came up with her way of finding your right shade: the “on-lip” lipstick swatch where the color is shown on the actual lips of the model, not swiped on a blank piece of paper. Other makeup companies picked up the idea and now Deere’s tool is a standard in the e-commerce industry.
Deere’s simple upbringing gave her the inspiration for her big dreams and she achieved success entirely on her own. She was born in Russia and raised in New York City. She uses the example of her upbringing to inspire other women that with a passion for what you are marketing and drive and hard work, anything is possible. She believes that the way to lead is to build people up instead of “ruling with the iron fist.” Deere also is an avid supporter for women-owned businesses and entrepreneurship, and welcomes other aspiring female entrepreneurs to contact her for advice through her Instagram page. In her spare time she frequency speaks on the subject of finding your calling and following your dreams and PHAMExpo and Vegas Nay’s Stardust Tour.

Handy is not really a physical company in the sense that it has a building where employees come every day to work, and then go out to a customer’s home to do their profession. Handy is based solely online and does have headquarters, but the workers that are employed by Handy sign up to do the company’s services and handle all of their own business but work underneath the Handy name. The fact that each worker that works underneath the Handy name is independently employed, this is a good thing for those who want lower prices for any services
Since Handy doesn’t have a building in every city that Handy is available, it means that they can save a lot of money, and the savings are passed on to the customers. Home cleaning companies as well as other services that may reside in a certain city, they can easily charge a lot more money than Handy does because they have a physical location that needs to be maintained. Paying light bills, water bills, employees and more can all add up very quickly for other companies, but Handy doesn’t have these problems because they work with individual people who are self-employed.
Those that want to take advantage of what Handy has to offer only need to go to the Handy website when they are ready to order any one of the services that Handy is providing. Onthesceneny.com reveals that not only is the customer going to save money but also time because they don’t have to go looking around for all types of services. Handy services many homes around the USA, but they also service businesses that need it as well. It should be no surprise that a business is likely to be charged a lot more for any services that they need, but Handy charges the same price to everyone.
Depending on the work that needs to be performed and the city the place is located in, the rates may change for cleaning services, but every Handy customer can get great service as well as great prices for the services that are being performed. Sign up for a Handy account before choosing any specific service. Since there are a lot of services that Handy offers, the customer may take some time to look through the different services and fees to determine which ones are the ones they need immediately and which services can wait.

There are a lot of people like us who are using Securus right now to talk to people they love in jail, and we are a part of this crowd. We have been using Securus for a while now to check in with my two nephews who are in jail, and I am the one who makes sure that they are in the best shape while they are in jail. Jail is a very hard thing for these people, and I know that I would want someone to check on me. Securus is keeping us secure, and they are making sure that all their calls are as secure as possible.
Securus often audits what they do, and they make sure that they are constantly upgrading because they want to be sure that they can make every call safe. We are trying to talk about family business when we are with Securus, and we do not want other people to hear that. The only way to make this work is for them to upgrade their software, and we can hear it in the call quality when we check in with my nephews. I am very sure that they get something out of this, and I have assured them that the phone calls are safe.
The best thing that has happened to our family is Securus. They are making it very easy for us to place calls to the jails, and we are making those calls using their video system. The video calls are very good because they give us a clear picture of how it is in the jail, and they are also showing us that there are a lot of things that we can improve before they get out. Securus has created the perfect calling and video system for our needs.
The Affordable Housing Loan Program is setting the tone of the 21st Century for affordable mortgage coverage. The plan is re-writing the books and raising the bar for the country. With thousands of people currently residing in lower income residences, this program will certainly be of some benefit and the City of Dallas is no exception as it embarks on this gut wrenching task.
Habitat For Humanity, Dallas Neighborhood Homes, and NexBank have partnered up to make this dream a reality. The two non-profit organizations specializes in such business as a builder and mortgage provider. They are experts in the field and act more so as the brains of the operation. NexBank on the other hand has the knowledge as well since it specializes in investment, commercial, and mortgage banking, but this premier bank is needed strictly for it’s financial muscle. All the planning in the world wouldn’t make a difference without proper funding and NexBank flexes it’s muscles proudly by offering up to $50 Million in loan support. This is no easy task what so ever, but being worth a total of $3.5 Billion, this institution has proved just how successful it truly is. The Affordable Housing Loan Program is expected to last for about five years, but each of those years are expected to bring in or give out over 100 loans. Certain families that reside in low income areas of Southern Dallas will benefit dearly from the services since mortgage coverage in the area is already limited.
If all goes well, this ambitious project led by Nexbank will be the prefect model to follow for any major American city that suffers with the same issues. These lower income families will now have a place that they can call their own thanks to Dallas Neighborhood Homes, Habitat For Humanity, and Nexbank.
Jennifer Walden is one of the few females that have been able to make their mark in the plastic surgery profession. Since she started her career she has become a world renowned plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery. It’s a fact that Walden is well aware of, and as a feminist and liberal, she hopes to help change it in the future. Walden believes a woman’s desire to bear children is a major reason that there aren’t more female surgeons out there. It takes many years of schooling and training to become a surgeon. A time consuming journey very few women decide to take on instead of bearing children in their prime child bearing years.

She wants young women to know that they can pursue a time consuming career and have a family at the same time. It just takes a lot of hard work and commitment to be great at both. Walden managed to establish her own practice while juggling being a mother of her twin sons.
Walden also wants women that aspire to be like her to know that she didn’t do it alone. She, like every other business oriented mother, had an understanding support system. Walden doesn’t think she would be as successful as she is without the help of her caring family.
