Doe Deere, who is also called the “Queen of Unicorns“, is trying to change the make-up game as well as help people follow their dreams.

Doe says that being a musician taught her many helpful business aspects such as marketing and how to make a career. She learned much about how to be an entrepreneur also, even though she says that she has always had that in her. Deere had her first business at the age of thirteen in Russia, where she sold temporary tattoos.

Doe Deere’s unconventional start as a musician was a blessing in many ways. Not only did she learn a lot about business, but she also met her husband during her fourteen year stint in New York City. The make-up mogul says that she learned to collaborate by songwriting and promoting with her now husband.

When asked what advice she has for young women with dreams and ambitions, Doe’s response is simply to follow their hearts and go where they love. She believes that everyone has something unique and special inside of them, and to grow and blossom, they must find a way to tune into that specials.

When it comes to her make-up brand, Lime Crime, Doe says that when she started to company in 2008, most make-up was geared towards the natural look that was so popular at the time. She, on the other hand, gravitated towards bright colors and rainbows, which were very uncommon back then, so she decided to make them. She feels like that is why the company has been so prosperous, because so many other girls loved the bright rainbow colors too. Doe believes that make-up is one of the best forms of self-expression, and clearly, she is not alone. Learn more: http://yourbeautycraze.com/how-beauty-expert-doe-deere-gets-ready


Goettl Air Conditioning Applies Sound Business Practices to Problems

Goettl Air Conditioning was founded in 1932 by brothers Gust and Adam. They introduced evaporative coolers and refrigerated air conditioning to the populace in the desert communities in Arizona and Nevada, forever improving the quality of life for many desert dwellers.

Goettl has had the opportunity to work with five generations of families and has built a stellar reputation for excellent customer service and prices. Families simply called Goettl when they had a need and it went on that way for years.

However in the nineties, Goettl was purchased by a big national management company. Clearly, it is difficult to keep track of all the customer needs from the standpoint of a larger bureaucracy, and things just didn’t get done in the customer area. Thus there developed great frustration from the customer, and the employee aspects.

In 2013 Ken Goodrich purchased Goettl and things began to change for the better. Goodrich had spent his business existence taking companies from near disaster to profitable situations. However, he just about met his match with Goettl. First of all there was a pending lawsuit due to some prior shady business arrangements. Customers were very frustrated and employees were pulling their hair in the attempt to satisfy customers.

Profits were down and chaos seemed to be the ruling factor. Goodrich went immediately into action by scheduling personal visits with employees and customers. He implemented a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee on all products, jobs, installations and everything else. His motto was if the customer is not happy, we do not have a business. He also noted that large companies focus more on the money than they do the customers. He turned that around completely so that now customers are very well taken care of and the employees see a future that is bright. Check out indeed.com for more info.

The other move that Goodrich made was to acquire Southern California’s Walton Heating and Air. Since Goettl was located in Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas, the Southern California location was strategic to capture a new market. BizJournals covered the story quite well and noted that Goettl had always been focused on the residential side of the heating and air business, while Walton’s had emphasized the commercial HVAC business.

Here in this situation, the strengths of each company complimented and strengthened the weaknesses of each company. Todd Longbrake, the former owner of Walton’s stated that company growth had reached its limit and it was time for a change. Since the merger, Walton’s has grown ten times what it was before.

Lacey and Larkin Fight For Latinos

The people I respect the most are the people who stand up against the evils that plagued mankind on this Earth. It is when good people take a stand the evil will never find route on this good World.

Personally, I myself have dedicated my livelihood to eradicating the evil in minds and hearts of people. I am not the only one to do this. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two other people who also decided to take a stand against the tyranny in this world.

It was because these two brave men took a stand that they were able to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund came out of a Injustice that was done to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

The Injustice began when Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the Maricopa County decided that he would retaliate against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin because they exposed the crimes that he was doing. Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook and Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia

It was on there to Media Outlets, Phoenix New Times and Village Voice media, that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin showed who Sheriff Arpaio really was.

They reported, and showed evidence, that Sheriff Arpaio was guilty of racially profiling Latinos, systematically persecuting them, jailing them in substandard cells, allowing Latinos to die under his watch, and misappropriated the funds that the county had given him. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin full well knew that Sheriff Arpaio was known to take revenge against those who spoke out against him.

It was on October 18th that Sheriff Arpaio thought he would enact his revenge. he pulled up to the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin and several unmarked SUVs. He would then illegally break down the doors of their homes, go inside, remove them from their beds, and then illegally detained them.

Michael and Jim were imprisoned for a total of 24 hours. The only reason that they were allowed to leave was because the outcry against this injustice grew to a national scale.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would take the Maricopa County to court and sue them for a grand total of 3.75 million dollars. With the funds in hand, they would then go and start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund.

It was from this fund that they would begin giving other nonprofits grants so that they could also fight immigrant injustice and promote civil right

Betsy DeVos, a Cheerful Giver and a Reformer

In an interview with Philanthropy, Betsy DeVos was asked to paint a picture of success as she would see it when she retired. In response to this, Betsy said that in retirement, she would feel fulfilled if parents were able to pick the best educational environment and setting for their children. Betsy was clear that this she hoped would be the plight of all parents without regard to the area they were from in America.


Charter Schools


Asked about Charter schools, Betsy said that these provided a choice for parents. She says that Charter schools are part of the solution that parents can look to along with virtual schools, and homeschooling. Betsy also spoke of magnet schools, vouchers and tax credits as being among the choices parents can pick from today.


Lobbying Vis a Vis Charity


Asked how she allocates her time between lobbying and charity, Betsy says she does not really differentiate the two and allocate time. Both she says are geared towards improving the work that together with her family and husband she has labored tirelessly for. She is however quick to point out that she is scrupulous about the allocations of resources and personnel in the ‘public-policy advocacy’. She said that as a volunteer, she spends a good many hours challenging and encouraging donors to involve themselves in advocacy as this is how real change is born.


Betsy DeVos


Betsy has spent over 15 years as a school mentor to vulnerable public school students in the Grand Rapids area. She cites that her interactions with children as a mentor had changed her perspective on education forever. This change has been the wind beneath her wing even as she supports creation of better educational choices in America. Before being confirmed as Education Secretary, Betsy served as Windquest Group’s chairman. She equally served on numerous charitable organizations’ boards such as ArtPrize, ‘Mars Hill Bible Church’, Kids Hope, ‘Kendall College of Art and Design’ and the ‘Kennedy Center for Performing Arts’.


Today, Betsy DeVos is the 11th ‘secretary of education’ in the US. Upon being nominated by President Trump, she was subsequently confirmed by the senate on February 2017. Her confirmation was welcome news to her seeing as she has been a champion for children and a voice for guardians and parents. Betsy’s passion for education was sparked when she was still in school by her mum, a school teacher. Seeing how the public education in her area was limited as far as delivery goes, she begun to raise her voice for more educational opportunities and choices. Devos went to Calvin College where she graduated with a ‘Bachelor’s of Arts Degree’. She married her husband Dick DeVos, a philanthropist, entrepreneur and community activist. Together the couple has four children and many grand children.

Why Goettl has continued to scale the height in HVAC service provision

Over the years, air conditioning, maintenance, and installation companies have been emerging around the world. This is to keep up with the increasing population that leads to increased housing facilities. Due to varied weather conditions, it is important to install both house heaters and air conditioners in residential and commercial houses to mitigate on any weather condition. Goettl is one of the leading air conditioning companies that have scaled the heights to offer professional services to people around Phoenix, Tucson, and Las Vegas. The company is focusing on becoming a predominant player in the industry with the aim of expanding its operations across California. Recently, Goettl moved to acquire HVAC company Walton’s Heating and Air in a mid to expand its operations. The company that is wholly owned by the Walton is based in southern California. Goettl showed interest in 2015 in buying the company, but Longbrake was reluctant of selling the company to Goettl because he was not sure about the future of Goettl. This however changed because of the success of the company and positive comments that were being attributed to Goettl. Since then, the company has continued to perform well in heat and air-conditioning installation across California. Goettl employment capacity has also increased to 300 employees with the promise of creating over 200 jobs. Longbrake also retained the sales manager position at the company leading to a successful brand. This is according to a release on BizJournals.

Ken Goodrich purchased Goettl in 2012 when the company was down to its knees and employees were threatening its existence. According to AZ Central this was because of poor policy formulation and working environment which he later changed with new ideas that brought the company back to life. After 18 months, the company had fully recovered and made a profit of over $18.

Fabletics: A Unicorn of Athletic Wear

A unicorn is described as a startup that soars to such incredible new heights in such a short period of time that it is almost unbelievable. It can also define something a startup brings to the marketplace that you just can’t believe didn’t exist before. Both of those things fall exactly under the blanket of athletic wear company Fabletics, who has had such a meteoric rise in the past few years it has been compared to the likes of Uber and Apple.

As technology continues to become more and more tangible in our life and as consumers expect a flawless online e-commerce website, the way companies do things is evolving rapidly and efficiently. Companies such as Amazon that have become continual innovators have forced others to follow. Similarly, grocery delivery has caused all grocery stores to find the need to provide that above average customer experience. Basically, today’s consumer wants what we want fast and we want it without leaving the comfort of our couch with computer or smartphone in hand.

Fabletics has seen incredible growth and market adoption using the technique of a reverse showroom, the opposite of what most modern retailors continue to use. Thought Fabletics does have several physical locations throughout the United States, it’s focus is always on that online retail experience and co-founders say the physical locations are there to compliment the online experience, not vice versa. Not only does Fabletics provide a seamless digital experience, but it goes above and beyond to charm and woo customers to become continuing loyal adopters that actually enjoy the experience of spending money monthly with Fabletics.


When you join as a member, you are offered items at discount prices, increasing the incentive to sign up. Each member receives a tailored user profile as a result of an online Lifestyle Quiz (check it out on their website if you haven’t yet), further increasing the chance of a positive experience coming from every shipment. Fabletics also goes above and beyond in their showroom, keeping items that weren’t purchased in a sub compartment of a shopping cart and providing top customer service.


These little things that make the reverse showroom experience so great at what made Kate Hudson so drawn to Fabletics from day one. She believes on putting her name on quality products and services that enrich the lives of people who purchase them and feels Fabletics does just that, while also encouraging physical fitness and positivity for women.
