Doing so might not be as glamorous as trying to earn massive amounts of money trading options and currency, but the odds of growing one’s capital increase.

Best Hair Product EVER? An Overview of Wen By Chaz

There are a lot of advertisements about Wen By Chaz Dean that are being circulated in the media. Intrigued by the advertisements, I said why not? I gave it a try, and guess what? It is absolutely fantastic!
Before I made the decision to purchase a WEN hair Cleansing Conditioner, I wanted to get some information and review prior to buying it. Wen Cleansing Conditioner, formulated by a Los Angeles stylist, Chaz Dean, is a “5-in-1 formula” made from Glycerin, Chamomile Extract, Wild Cherry Bark, Rosemary Extract, and Panthenol. Wen Cleansing Conditioner’s “5-in-1 formula” will simply your showers as it has all the hair management products that you need in one little bottle as “it takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner.”

Emily McClure, a Fashion and Beauty writer for Bustle, published an article which made its way to the Total Beauty website, regarding her experience with Wen Cleansing Conditioner and was very happy with the product. She said that her hair was shiny, soft, and bouncy. I was convinced, so I put in an order.

I went with the the Hair Care Basic Kit. For $29.95, I received the Cleansing Conditioner, Anti-Frizz Styling Creme, and Nourishing Mousse. I also got a free travel kit along with the purchase.

Personally, I love pomegranate, so naturally, I went with the pomegranate version. I got the products in the mail last month, and I was just amazed. My hair feels amazing, and I don’t think I will ever go back to using any other product. Oh, did I mention that they offer free shipping?

Final Thought

This is a great product, and I have no complaints. I would recommend this to anyone, this is honestly one of the best purchases I’ve made in the recent years. Don’t just take my word for it. Visit Wen’s Youtube channel for additional information:

Impact of Martin Lustgarten on Investment Banking

Throughout his 20 year investment banking career, Martin Lustgarten has learned to predict many things. He can usually tell how the market is going to react to political crisis or stability, the rising and falling of commodity prices and how investors are generally felling about the state of the world.

Martin has developed many contacts that openly share their views with him allowing him to guide his clients in the right direction. His clients are extremely happy with his work because he so openly shares his knowledge gained while operating banks throughout the United States.

One thing that Martin Lustgarten ( cannot predict is when a natural disaster is going to change market conditions. Yet, Martin is the first to state that these events have a large impact on the market. For example, when the twin earthquakes hit Japan on April 16,2016, one of the hardest hit areas was Mashiki, Kumamoto, Japan, one of the largest manufacturing cities in the country. Immediately impacted was the Toyota motorcycle factory that tumbled to the ground. Also, Sony Corporation had to close its nearby sensor and device plant. Nissan temporarily had to shutter its two plants before being able to reopen them after an inspection. One of the hardest hit areas of Japan is the area surrounding Mount Aso that produces most of the milk in the country.

The earthquake that hit Ecuador may have a much larger impact on this emerging market that was already plagued by falling oil prices. The country that relies on exports for 25 percent of its gross domestic product says these exports could be greatly hurt by roads and ports destroyed during the earthquakes.

When a natural disaster strikes an area, one of the first things that a government can do to ensure investments is to repair its infrastructure. Not only does this speed up the movement of needed building supplies but it insures investors that the country has the resources needed for reconstruction. Secondly, governments should help support damaged firms by making investment capital readily available. Research by the World Bank Group and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) shows that the impact on the gross domestic product in emerging markets can be 20 times higher than those in well established markets.

iFunding’s Skelley Continues His Climb in Real Estate

William Skelley, the CEO of iFunding, recently was named as member of the ‘Next Generation of Real Estate Leaders‘ by the weekly television show The Stoler Report: NY’s Business Report.

Skelley is the founder of iFunding, a real estate crowdfunding platform which has grown its business in recent years despite little use of marketing funds.

Because of his accomplishments, Skelley’s name was placed in a small list of other notable rising members in the real estate industry. The ‘Next Generation of Real Estate Leaders’ is an invitation-only association conducted by Michael Stoler, the show’s host and current managing director of Madison Realty Capital. Skelley will be appearing Stoler’s show this spring in an episode focusing on commercial real estate.

CNBC shows that iFunding specializes in crowdfunding, the process of raising capital for a project by using the Internet platform to receive numerous amounts of cash from a large number of people. Unlike usual real estate ventures which requires investor to submit large monetary amounts, iFunding has roughly a $5,000 minimum investment amount. Also, potential investors can make debt or equity investments such as buying bonds for stock shares. This opens the door to a lot more lower-end investors who are looking to get into the real estate market.

Most real estate projects usually range from single-family homes to larger residences to office buildings. Many such project operators are seeking financing within the industry. The company iFunding bridges the gap between operator and investor. The company vets real estate operators to make sure that their investors get intact with ones with proven track records of success and projects that can return a good profit. In return, the investors help turn real estate projects into reality through their financing as operators can reach a wider audience.

Since its inception in 2012, iFunding has helped its investors earn more than $5 million in returns.

Skelley runs the iFunding Twitter, and through that also helped to build a boutique investment bank that underwrote $2 billion for real estate transactions. He was aligned with the hedge fund Rose Park Advisors and served as an advisor to several start-up companies. A former Harvard Business School student, Skelley also previously worked at General Electric and Olympus.

Billionaire Soros Offers Financial Advice

The financial world is similar to a secret society, an exclusive fraternity; not everyone is allowed to enter this arena. But advice of a financial nature, tips, gossip and rumors are eagerly sought out by all investors.

George Soros, philanthropist and financial wizard, has lectured and written extensively on matters economic, political, and financial. In a recent interview by, he offered several tips for all new investors. The first tip seems rather staid and uninteresting, but why argue with a man who made more than $1 billion on a single investment. He said that a new investor needs to find a broker, who thinks along the same lines as the investor, himself. If the investor is cautious and conservative, the broker should be of a similar ilk. Secondly, Soros stated that investments are to be made for the long term. Don’t expect to get rich and move from an apartment to a mansion in a short time. To make investing work you must not be anxious; let your investments work over time. He also offered that the novice investor must keep abreast of, not only, his own investments but of the direction of the overall markets, as well. Read the full article published by PR Newswire:
