Hern indicates, in his interview, that he has the utmost confidence in his executive and strategy team; giving them the necessary freedom needed, to execute profitable sales on behalf of the company.

Some investors may be a little discouraged by the fed’s interest rate hike and perhaps by the inverted yield curve that some analysts have warned about. But even though some investments may be slowed down at the end of this year, others are primed to take off in 2019 including petroleum according to Banyan Hill’s Matt Badiali. Badiali has experience working in and investing in the energy sector, and when it comes to petroleum, he says this is a boom that’s been growing over the last 10 years. The US has pipelines that run throughout the nation that independent companies own and profit greatly from when oil companies are in a boom and have oil flowing through. What Badiali also mentions is that these companies running the pipelines are Master Limited Partnerships, the kind of companies representing freedom checks that he discovered not long ago. Matt Badiali says that though 2018 has put a slowdown on MLPs because of the fed’s actions, he believes lowered interest rates and the ability to borrow more money will prove highly beneficial for them in 2019.
Matt Badiali has had a successful career in geology as a consultant to a major oil drilling company as well as an environmental initiative. He always made it a point not just to analyze rocks, mineral deposits and geological readings, but also to make recommendations to drilling oversight managers and foremen at various sites. Badiali has applied much of that same approach as an investor who likes to personally see what he’s buying into before he does so.
Matt Badiali writes newsletters primarily pertaining to natural resources and energy stocks, but he also is knowledgeable on precious metals and has talked a lot lately about freedom checks. These are also investments that look like stocks, but they actually pay out higher dividends thanks to the laws governing MLP companies and the fact that US energy independence movements have made the time right for buying them. In fact, the total profits coming into freedom checks over these next few years is said to be over $30 billion. You can learn more about Badiali and these investments at his Banyan Hill page and subscribe to his newsletters there.
The creator and CEO of Equities First Holdings is Al Christy, Jr. and he wanted to find a way to fill the dilemma that consumers are currently stuck. He is allowing consumers a way to secure loans that are secured by stocks as a different way of assisting individuals to obtain money for their businesses. Stock-based loans allow for a higher loan-to-value ratio than other loans, but they have a fixed interest rate. This allows borrowers to feel confident when accepting these loans. He has clarified the difference between traditional loans and stock-based loans. A person can’t get a traditional loan before first being pre-qualified. After being approved, he or she can only use the funds for the specific reason. Also, conventional loans have variable rates, and the loan-to-value ratio can only be expected to be between ten and fifty percent.
If there is a margin call, the borrower’s collateral is in danger of being dissolved.

Sherpa Capital founder, Shervin Pishevar is one of the most notable business persons in the U.S. Among his notable investments is Uber; which is currently a global transport conglomerate and making billions in profit. Pishevar is also a venture capitalist with other numerous investments. Recently, he decided to open up about his thoughts on the current economic and social matters affecting the nation. Additionally, he decided also to share his predictions on the future of the economy. Among the topics he addressed through his tweets was immigration, Space X, technology, bonds, and bitcoins.
Too much economic power for monopolies
According to Shervin Pishevar’s tweets, he firmly believes that the biggest companies in the United States such as Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet, and Facebook will remain to be that for the foreseeable future. He stated that he doesn’t expect anything revolutionary out of California especially Silicon Valley as most of these monopolies are looking to set base outside the country taking incredible talent with them. He added that these monopolies have too much power and are strangling the tech industry preventing other such big companies from emerging.
The country will lag behind
The Sherpa Capital founder went ahead to say that this technological chokehold that the country is placed into by the monopolies will lead to it lagging behind other countries soon. He specifically pointed out China as the country ready to take the place of U.S.A if it lags behind. Shervin Pishevar went ahead to warn that the country’s economy is heading to a problematic place which may hinder its development. This may give China the opportunity it needs.
The red flags
Shervin Pishevar stated that there are a lot of red flags today that are an indication of the tough times coming ahead. The crashing bitcoin sector is one of these indications. He said that the bitcoin prices will continue falling and the volatility of the bond and stock markets makes thing even worse. He said that from his analysis it was challenging for the country to pull through this coming financial storm still on its feet.
As most cyber security experts predict more companies and organizations will experience data breaches in the years ahead, it is increasingly important to place a greater emphasis on data storage and security. However, due to the complexities involved with this task, most companies and organizations know little if anything about where to turn for assistance. But for those who discover CloudWick and the services it can provide, the creation of a security operations center becomes much more efficient and effective.
Relying on a team of experienced and knowledgeable data scientists, engineers, developers, and other IT professionals, CloudWick can create a security data lake that can safely and securely store vast amounts of data for any company big or small. To do so, it relies on developing a data lake that can capture and ingest a variety of incoming data, including network, virtual, machine, and cloud data, into one security data platform. Once this is accomplished, it can greatly reduce the inefficiencies found in most of today’s siloed security systems, even if the data is stored on-premises or in a cloud.
As many companies and organizations know all too well, the costs associated with IT upgrades and changes can become very high, often prohibiting smaller companies from making the changes necessary to protect their data. However, as CloudWick has developed new and innovative data storage methods through the data lake, it has been able to reduce the costs and complexities associated with these changes. As a result, a company’s security stack can be converged, consolidated, and modernized so that it can be placed onto a more secure data platform. By doing so, the data platform itself becomes much easier for employees to use, since it requires no prior cloud, search, or big data experience.
Rather that sit back and wait for the inevitable data breach to occur, more companies are now relying on the services of CloudWick to create security operations centers for data storage. In doing so, various aspects of a company’s IT system can be integrated with one another, resulting in greater security measures being in place 24/7.
It’s nothing new for a company to step into the world of charity, but it is uncommon to start your own foundation to see it through. Dallas’ Stream Energy announced that it’s working with local charities and organizations in Texas and across the United States with their new foundation Stream Cares. This is a foundation that got rolling during Hurricane Harvey, helping Texans recover with some financial assistance. They’ve also worked to address Dallas’ growing homelessness problem with the Hope Supply Co.
Stream Energy’s goal is to improve quality of life in their immediate community while making it clear to current and prospective clients that this is a company invested in where they live. One such charity is Operation Once in a Lifetime. This Dallas charity is known for working with veterans and their families, giving them financial support as a way to respect and honor their service to the country. Stream Energy partnered with Once in a Lifetime to donate transportation to military veterans in need, taking them to a December luncheon in their honor.
This event was then followed up with another, the American Girl Doll Experience, held for the daughters of military members. Stream Energy co-hosted 10 little girls where they were able to choose and have lunch with their very own American Girl Doll. The company covered all expenses for that afternoon.
Kimberly Girard, the Senior Event Manager for Stream Energy, stated that the devotion to charitable causes that directly affect Texans is part of the company’s internal culture. The employees are mindful of their philanthropy, and Stream Cares intends to identify the best ways to devote time and resources to causes that reflect that giving nature and line up with their concern for everyday Texans.
This is a significant development for a notable company in this state. According to WalletHub, Texas is a state that doesn’t give much back, falling behind less populated states like Minnesota and Utah in terms of charitable donations and volunteering. By taking up a new charitable foundation, Stream Energy has the opportunity to play a role in how the city of Dallas, and indeed the whole stat of Texas, looks at caring for their local communities and the people who live there. Making use of their inherent generosity, the company expects to make their leadership more profound and show the business community that this is the way forward.
Alex Hern has no idea how people who don’t center themselves do things. He’s never been the type to function in that style. Tsunami XR’s head is a man who takes getting things done 110 percent seriously. This Chief Executive Officer doesn’t appreciate things that hurt his contemplation abilities even for a second. That may be the reason he’s done so much to get far in society. He’s a technology firm co-founder who grasps outstanding outcomes. He’s a life sciences master who grasps routes that can aid people who long for those outcomes.
Alex Hern works tirelessly all throughout the year. He’s not someone anyone will spot on nonstop exotic vacations. That’s not proof that he doesn’t think highly of seeing the world. It’s simply proof that he has so many things he needs to tackle all of the time. No one would ever refer to Alex Hern as being a slacker of any kind. Slacking isn’t even a word that’s part of his expansive vocabulary.
Hern gets a lot out of doing kindly deeds for others. He even likes to do them for the people in his immediate family. His daughter is a little girl who has a zeal for aiding animals. Hern identifies that as being a fantastic trait. How did he award her for that incredible personal characteristic? He awarded her by offering her a bit of cash for the creation of a local dog walking company. Hern’s child likes work and animals and because of that wanted to mix the two universes together. Walking four-legged creatures around the community can be brilliant for children who want to be able to score money. It can be brilliant for children who know how to employ their resources in wise manners. Alex Hern always wants to guide the world’s kids.
Bernardo Chua is an ambitious businessman that founded Organo Gold in 2008. This network marking firm has become well known for their gourmet coffees, among other things. It was Bernardo’s idea to use coffee as a way to introduce an old medicine from ancient China, which is the Ganoderma. This mushroom has been used as a medicine for many centuries throughout China and it was Bernardo’s grandmother who told him stories of the mushroom and its healing effects. By infusing the Ganoderma with coffee and other products, Bernardo is bringing a healthy additive to the coffee industry.
Bernardo Chua had some help with starting off Organo Gold. It was Holton Buggs and Shane Morand that helped Bernardo get started and create a widely successful business model that would put him on the international map. Organo Gold is privately owned today and functions as a network marketing company that sells products in more than 40 different countries around the world. Organo Gold has done a lot of marketing for the Ganoderma and its effects, which can be found in most of Organo’s products, including their toothpaste which has a minty flavor despite containing the Ganoderma.
The company has continued to grow at a steady rate for the past 10 years, allowing them to extend their reach and their product line equally. Bernardo is going to keep infusing Ganoderma with as many products as he can as long as the benefits transfer and so far they have continued to find more uses for the mushroom. They are not only making an impact on coffee culture around the world with their healthy alternatives at Organo Gold, but they are helping people live healthier lives on a daily basis through quality organic products that are all infused with an ancient Chinese medicine, Ganoderma.
