The dating world can be scary for women to traverse, and that’s exactly what Whitney Wolfe set out to fix when she released her dating app Bumble. Unlike other dating apps on the market, Bumble only allows women to make the first move which helps them to avoid some rather uncomfortable conversations that seem unavoidable when it comes to trying to date online. The highly feminist concept has been met with contempt by some, but Wolfe continues pushing on and has seen her app become a huge success that branched off to include features for friends and business connections as well as dating. Read this article of Whitney Wolfe at Deadline
2018 has been a huge year for Whitney Wolfe and Bumble. Among some of the things that have happened this year with the app includes starting a venture fund to support women founding companies and considering creating an initial public offering. Even though they were busy doing all of this, their company still managed to keep growing their app in many different ways.
With more than 41 million users and growing, their Chief Executive Officer Whitney Wolfe believes that they have barely started seeing the potential that this company may have in the future. In the beginning, she wanted to create a dating platform that gave women the power when it came to communication and she believes that they have managed to do just that.
One of Bumble’s newest investors, Priyanka Chopra, is supporting Whitney Wolfe with her decision to expand the dating app to India. In India, there is a lot of distrust towards men by women in the dating world. While they want to connect with potential romantic partners, they also want to feel empowered and safe in the process. They believe that their expansion into India will be met with a good reception and users will be excited to participate. Chopra will be working closely with Whitney Wolfe to help address the specific needs of women looking to date in India as the market tends to be aggressive. It is reported that she is deeply involved with the project even down to the marketing of the app.
You’ve been hearing all about freedom checks, but these checks aren’t federal. They have nothing to do with your tax refund. These are not Trump bonus checks either. These checks are the result of a tax-free investment opportunity. In fact, it’s assigned it’s very own special tax code. That’s right; it’s Statute 26-F. What does this mean?
The Statute 26-F has everything to do with energy related businesses and those who choose to invest in them. If you choose to invest in one of these energy companies, you could be well on your way to earning additional funds. Companies that are master limited partnerships are required to pay out bonuses to those who invest in them. The status of the master limited partnership gives you the ability to earn these tax-free checks.
The Trump bonus checks are altogether different. Those checks are nice to get, but they don’t require an investment to be made, but they are similar in nature to the freedom checks in that they are not tied to the government either. Trump signed an executive order in March of 2017 that would essentially give payments to those who were over 65. What’s the reasoning behind this?
Trump believes that the Obama administration imposed hardship among most people. Therefore, he wanted those who were on SSI and saw decreases when living expenses increased to receive that money. Those retirees would receive monies back to make up for those losses.
Either way, the freedom checks and Trump bonus checks are wonderful and they can certainly improve the lives of those who receive them. If there are extra checks available, wouldn’t you want to know more about them?
President Nixon was forward thinking, in that he wanted the country to utilize natural resources to increase it’s overall wealth.He also promoted that law, so that those who invested into these companies would be rewarded as they should. Freedom checks could help those folks retire who didn’t think it was possible.
For a man who began his career in the oil and gas exploration industry, Hussain Sajwani has come a long way to reach the top of the luxury real estate industry in Dubai with a close working relationship with U.S. President Donald Trump. Hussain Sajwani and his family are well known in the United Arab Emirates for the success of the DAMAC Properties group and for the many good works he has completed as a philanthropist; however, around the world, Hussain Sajwani has only recently been discovered by many people through the close links he has formed to the Trump Organization headed by the current U.S. President.

Entering the luxury real estate market in Dubai seemed a far-off dream for the DAMAC owner in the early 2000s when his chain of mid-market hotels was performing well with members of the former Soviet states. Dubai remained the target for Sajwani but an outdated rule barring foreign citizens from owning property in the city made thoughts of becoming a luxury real estate developer in the city a distant dream. A change in rules regarding property development opened the door for Hussain Sajwani to enter the luxury real estate sector and establish one of the leading luxury real estate companies in the world.
Hussain Sajwani has made the leap into the world of luxury real estate development’s elite in recent years because of his close association with the Trump organization. Sajwani and DAMAC Properties have already opened their first Trump-branded golf resort in Dubai which has continued the long history of success attached to the DAMAC brand in the Middle East. A second golf resort will soon open which has been designed by golfing legend, Tiger Woods and will also bear the Trump name backed by funding sourced from Hussain Sajwani. The move to The White House of Donald Trump led to an end of international business deals until the President completes his term when Hussain Sajwani has already stated he has a $2 billion real estate deal waiting for the New York real estate mogul and politician.
