As an entrepreneur, education can be extremely expensive, especially just starting the schooling process for the first time. Keith Mann is currently working on changing that along with other aspects. Keith and Keely Mann understands just how stressful taking risks can be when starting a new business without any support system or safety nets. When first learning to run a business as well as keep it going it requires quite a large amount of money upfront. This is where Keith and Keely Mann got their spark of inspiration, by helping entrepreneurs all over, each year by gifting one student a chance to earn the Keith and Keely scholarship. Keith and Keely have paired up with the prestigious Uncommon schools to distribute their scholarships.
This idea stems back from when Keith started on his own business from scratch, Dynamic Search Partners. At the time, Keith was taking serious leaps of faith, to which most call risks, behind those risks was an even stronger fear, money. That is something Keith can always recall how difficult it can be for the less fortunate. This scholarship program provides students with lower income a better chance for a higher education.
Keith man himself is considered by many to be an ambitious industry leader, with just under two decades of extensive experience in his field. The company in which Keith started and maintains, Dynamic Search Partners, was created to provide expertise on hedge funds and alternate investing. Being an entrepreneur and being in alternate investing are really two of the same, in the sense of investing some money into something, then at a later time making a profit on selling it. As an entrepreneur it comes with a lot of major benefits compared to most average jobs. With benefits also comes taking risks, that can make it incredibly difficult, but that’s how the old saying goes, if its truly worth it, it won’t always be easy.
TOYS for BOYS’ Co-founder Danilo Diaz Granados is know throwing some incredibly lavish events. This summer was no different. The event, which was held in Miami, featured helicopter rides, world class cuisine, bottles of Dom Perignon, and finished off with a sunset boat ride. The lucky guests were hand selected by Granados and each guest was invited to attend a private and intimate breakfast at the Dame Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum sales center
“I wanted to create an opportunity that would give our guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Danilo Diaz Granados said. “Men in Miami now have a place to check out the most extravagant, one-of-a-kind products and places.”
Granados joined his guests on a thirty minute helicopter ride to the Palm Beach Race Track where each guest got a chance to get in a car and take a lap on the track. The guests then flew back on helicopter where they were treated to champagne and lunch hosted by Dom Perignon. The evening was then wrapped up with a sunset boat ride hosted by Van Dutch and Technomar, where guests got to experience their newest boats firsthand.
Granados is a man fueled by his motivation for his desire to succeed. After graduating from Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, where he received his degree in Economics and Entrepreneurship, he took his skills to Miami achieve his dreams. Having graduated in 2010 it only took two years for him to sign as the Manager of Movilway, an electronic payments service based in Latin America. The next year in 2013, he co-founded TOYS for BOYS’ after realizing the Latin community in Miami did not have a luxury boutique store that catered to their needs. The company sells luxury watches, jewelry, sunglasses, as well as exotic cars all in one place designed for the male Latin community in the Miami area.
George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, is united two very strange groups — Neo-nazis and Pro-Israel groups. That’s right (pun intended), these right-winged groups have banded together in order to attack the Hungarian Jewish businessman.
Before we get into the strange bedfellow alliance of Neo-Nazis and pro-Israeli groups in this crazy George Soros conspiracy, you must first understand George Soros himself. The self-made man is in his 80’s and he grew up in Budapest. If you did your math correctly, you now know that Soros grew up Jewish in a Nazi occupied territory during World War II.
His family fled. His father, seeing the coming storm, traded his family’s wealth for fake papers and a new last name — Soros. When the Nazis came knocking, the Soros family had fake identities to avoid persecution on NY Times. But the war stopped a young George from going to school in his youth.
His family immigrated to London where he attended the London School of economics. He used a meager scholarship from a religious foundation and worked as a railroad porter and waiter to put himself through school. He then used his education to amass billions of dollars while earning the nickname “The Man Who Broke The Bank of England”. He famously shorted the pound to net over a billion dollars in one day.
So, we know George Soros is a self-made man who survived a world war and pulled himself up by the boot straps to make millions through capitalism. You’d think he’d be the poster child for right-winged conservative politicians and talk show hosts. Well, if you think that; then you’d be wrong. They hate him.
They hate the man because he has used his money to fund groups like MoveOn.org, the Open Society’s Foundation and the Drug Policy Alliance. Now you might see the George Soros conspiracy come into focus. The man funds open societies, equal rights, the legalization of marijuana, government transparency and he is fervently pro immigrant. Of course he’s pr immigrant because he’s an immigration success story.
So, the right-winged media tries to tear him down and they’ve attempted to use the latest George Soros emails from the George Soros Wikileaks database. Wikileaks has produced a treasure trove of emails hacked from the Democratic Party’s database. Some of them are incredibly bad for Democrats, like the ones forcing Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to resign because of her involvement in rigging the Democratic Primary against Bernie Sanders. But the George Soros emails are incredibly mundane. But that doesn’t stop the right-wing zealots from attacking the philanthropist. Visit Open Society Foundations website to know more about George Soros.
Inside the George Soros Wikileaks emails, you’ll find messages from Soros himself indicating that he is against some of the racist actions of Israel in regards to Palestine. He’s also against the treatment of Palestinian people who might be fleeing a war-torn part of the world, much like he did. But these emails have Pro-Israel right-wingers and antisemites alike attacking Soros, accusing him of hating Israel on one hand and inciting a migration of Jews to Europe on the other. Just proving the absurdity of the attacks on Soros.

Status Labs, a reputation and crisis management firm, has suffered a crisis of their own. After an toxic executive operated poorly and dangerously for the company, they knew that their company morale and image was at an all time low.
Darius Fisher knew just how to help the spirit of the company.
First, he recognized that community outreach on behalf of his company was dismally low. They did very little in terms of giving back to the community. It had never seemed like a necessary step for a business of their size. However, when Fisher of Status Labs began pushing his employees to give back, he found something special happened. Not only did the relationship between the company and community grow, individuals began to grow as well. He found that eventually, employees began going to the food bank on their own, instead of him insisting on them going. Overall, through their dedication to the community, individual employees within Status Labs were able to find a better emotional state for themselves.
That however, was not enough to boost the spirits of the company back to the original hopeful levels that had been experienced when the company was first created. To do so, he knew he needed to restore a sense of fun and happiness in the work place itself.
One of the first measures he incorporated was to cater food into the office every Friday for lunch. These communal meals shared between employees served to strengthen the bonds they had for each other. Now, instead of independently getting lunch and not speaking to each other, they operated as a group.
Next, he opened up the company space to employees pets. This served to restore some of the youth and joy to the company that had seem to be drained out. Instead of rushing back home during lunch hours to walk pets, people were ale to see them all day.
Finally, Fisher told each employee every day that they were unique and vital to the success of the public relations company.
These measures served to increase the health and morale of the office community.
