Doe Deere’s Journey to Success as an Immigrant

Doe Deere was born in Russian, but she like many focused and determined immigrants are on track to make America great. Her entrepreneurial spirit and unstoppable efforts have led to the success of her makeup line, Lime Crime and her new fashion line, Poppy Angeloff.

Doe Deere, like many immigrants came to America seeking an opportunity to succeed in life. At 17, she arrived here with her mother and sister. They started out in New York where they struggled and at one time became homeless with some help they changed their circumstances drastically. Doe Deere went to the Fashion Institute of Technology and her sister was able to attend Columbia University with the help of the leader of a non-profit organization called Sanctuary for Families.

From the homeless shelter, they moved to the projects in East Harlem. While it wasn’t the best living situation, it was an improvement from what they were coming from. Both she and her sister had their own rooms and they had a kitchen to prepare their meals. Despite their dire situation, Deere’s family felt like things were looking up.

After not being employed for a long time, Deere’s mom was finally able to secure work as an accountant, the profession she had in Russia.

In the 2000’s, Doe Deere started experimenting with makeup and in 2008 she founded Lime Crime. At that time, she was employing 35 people out of her Los Angeles head quarters. For nearly 20 years, Doe Deere has been working hard to accomplish the American dream. Clawing her way up from homeless to CEO, Doe Deere has created a uniquely creative line of makeup that has specific traits.

Lime Crime is a line of makeup that is vegan. Deere does not use animal by-products to formulate her products. Beeswax is also excluded. By communicating directly with her customer, Deere has had a successful product line. She encourages interaction with her customers through social media, Snapchat, FaceBook and YouTube. Because of her interactions with customers, she knows what they want and she delivers it repeatedly. Doe Deere’s Lime Crime is a product of her struggle and her desire to make it anywhere after making it in New York.

Whitney Wolfe Is Always Creating New Things For Bumble

Whitney Wolfe is one of the most successful businesswomen in the world today. Her work has opened the door for countless women to gain that confidence when it comes down to dating. Bumble is the name of the app she co-founded, and she worked tirelessly to help bring it to life with the best programming professionals, coders, and experts. Whitney Wolfe created this app to give women that safe haven when it came down to dating.

Bumble utilizes a different program to help people get their matches. When a man and a woman first start swiping and a match is made, the men are not allowed to message the woman first. If the woman decides not to message the guy she matched with, the match disappears. The men then wait and wait for 24 hours to see if the woman decides to send them a message. This has helped drop down the amounts of useless disrespect women deal with on social media sites like Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and other dating apps. Men usually believe they can get away with incorrectly treating women online and harassing them. This app helps eliminate that by a landslide.

Whitney Wolfe has worked with the the team from Badoo to help build. In fact, she was spoken to by a man from Badoo about a possible new change for working with her to build Bumble from scratch. It’s incredible how the app has formed from being non-existent to now having dozens of young talented women and men working on maintaining this app.

She never intended on building an “app.” She wanted to create a platform that works on giving women that safe space when talking to men they may be interested in. She doesn’t care about not following the rules or not being exactly what the public wants. As CEO, she is aware of where the app is headed and she wants to bring it there.

The app has already added in numerous new features over the last year or two, and they continue to make new changes to make it better, more interactive, and more intuitive for users.

Stepping Up-Desiree Perez of ROC Nation one of six female music executives to call Neil Portnow out on his “out of touch” comments regarding women in music.

Legendary music executive Desiree Perez of ROC Nation was one of six female recording industry leaders to respond this week to Neil Portnow, the president of the Recording Academy’s comment that women in music need to “step up” if they want to advance their careers.“Neil Portnow’s comments are not a reflection of being ‘inarticulate’ in a single interview. They are, unfortunately, emblematic of a much larger issue with the [National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences] organization as a whole on the broader set of inclusion issues across all demographics,” the women wrote in a letter sent to the Recording Academy’s board of trustees. The strongly worded letter also called the Academy, which presents the Grammy awards, “woefully out of touch with today’s music, the music business, and even more significantly society.”

The letter was signed by Jody Gerson, the chief executive of Universal’s publishing arm; Michele Anthony, an executive vice president at the Universal Music Group; Sylvia Rhone, the president of Epic Records; Julie Greenwald, the co-chairman of Atlantic Records; Julie Swidler, the general counsel of Sony Music; and Desiree Perez, the chief operating officer of Roc Nation. The letter makes it clear that these executives write on behalf of their companies, encompassing the three most influential music conglomerates in the world.

Due to the criticisms of Portnow and the Academy as a whole by Perez and the executives as well as artists such as Pink and Kelly Clarkson and the calls for Portnow’s resignation by industry lawyers and talent managers, the Academy has announced that it will create a task force to review it’s work in order to “overcome the explicit barriers and unconscious biases that impede female advancement in the music community.”Desiree Perez, COO of ROC Nation, is best known for her work with Jay-Z, but she has also worked with many top female artists such as Beyonce, Rihanna, and Mariah Carey. Her skills as a negotiator, her toughness, and her compassion have helped her to succeed in a male-dominated industry. Her recent criticisms of the industry are in line with her support of artist Mariah Carey’s involvement in the Time’s Up Movement and her assistance in spreading the #MeToo movement.

Standing firmly as the directional guide for all unique strategics, Julie Zuckerberg makes a large difference in respects to Technology and Operations, as well as the Infrastructure and the Front Office sects of Deutsche Bank.

Helane Morrison: A Great Role Model For the 21st Century

I think Helane Morrison is one of the greatest female voices in the American financial industry today. In a world where over-sexualized women like Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian get all the buzz, it is refreshing to see a strong role model like Helane Morrison who can teach today’s girls the value education and hard work.

In this short article, I will take a look at how Morrison got to this position of power. I hope to inspire all young girls reading this article to follow in her footsteps towards leading a virtuous, successful, and powerful life.

Morrison was born in Brooklyn, NY, and began her studies in journalism at Northwestern University. After graduating with a B.S. in journalism, Morrison enrolled in the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law, where she received her J.D. in 1984.

Morrison first worked as a law clerk for Richard Posen in the US Court of Appeals in the Seventh District. In 1987, she passed the California bar. She also worked with such legal luminaries as Harry Blackmun in the US Supreme Court for a short period of time.

Eventually, Morrison moved to work with San Francisco’s Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin law firm for a few years.

One of the most important moments in Morrison’s career came when she joined the SEC. She eventually became the very first woman to be promoted to the role of a District’s Chief in 1999.

Morrison’s actions during her time at the SEC, I believe, show her passion for pursuing corruption at the very top of the business world. During her time here, she took some bold legal actions against financial fraud at famous companies like HBO & Co., and even against the General Counsel of Google, Inc.

Today, people can find Morrison happily working at Hall Capital Partners LLC where she serves as Managing Director, General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer.

One of the reasons why Morrison joined Hall Capital is, I believe, quite telling. She believes the culture of diversity that Hall Capital emphasizes has made it into one of the greatest money managing companies in the Bay Area.

With three women at the helm of the company, Morrison is happy to be a part of breaking down gender stereotypes. She hopes that the work of diverse management at Hall Capital will re-define the image of corporate America for the 21st century.
