A Great Twitter Tirade From Shervin Pishevar

You could definitely call it a Twitter tirade if you wanted to. Shervin Pishevar recently went on a fifty tweet, twenty-one hour tweet storm related to all of his ideas about the economy and the state of the world as it stands right now. It was something that inspired a lot of people to take another look at the way things are right now.

Shervin Pishevar has always turned heads when he speaks or writes. He has frequently been right about the predictions that he makes. For example, Shervin Pishevar is probably most famous as an early investor in Airbnb. He staked his capital in a company that people thought would never work out at the time. Now, the company has grown to such an extent that it is a household name. That clearly made Shervin Pishevar a lot of money for his personal bank account. Why then would we now also listen to what he has to say about the world economy as a whole? The truth is, that is exactly what we should do.

The tweets started by talking about how Pishevar believes that the stock market is overdue for a correction. That was followed by tweets about Bitcoin, China, and the American Dream (this guy has range!).

The talk about a stock market correction was something that some people scoffed at. They could not believe that someone would suggest that the precious stock market might fall after the kind of run that it has been having as of late. However, there is little doubt in the mind of Shervin Pishevar that this is going to happen. He was therefore pleased in a way when just three days after he posted these tweets, the stock market began to tank by more than one-thousand points. He quickly dubbed it the “#TrumpDump“.

It is not as though his predictions always start to come true so quickly or even at all. It is about the fact that he is more often right than wrong when it comes to these kind of things. Knowing that, we should all consider our options when it comes to who we take advice from and why we do so.

Mr. Hussain Sajwani Is a Revered Role Model In Business

Whether you are running a small tuck shop, a restaurant or a shopping mall, as an entrepreneur, you need a role model. The idea of having a role model is pegged on the lessons an individual is meant to pick from the core of ideas.

As such, Hussain Sajwani has been described as a perfect role model to aspiring youths who would like to join the industry of real estate and food catering. Having manned two businesses after working for various companies after college, the DAMAC owner has an interesting backstory that we must look at.

Background Look

Mr. Sajwani was born in 1954. Interestingly, he hailed from a humble background. His father imported commodities from China’s market. Of course, at that point, he faced challenges that may have discouraged him at some point. But being a good family man, Hussain’s father did not give up on the business.

Instead, he wanted Hussain to join the business and later succeed him. But Hussain was not for the idea. He wanted to explore other options. Consequently, Hussain Sajwani enrolled for formal education at a medical school in Baghdad.

Education Background

Mr. Sajwani did not complete his education. Being an explorer, as usual, he fled to America. That is when he earned full education scholarship and decided to pursue two courses; engineering and economics from the Washington University.

Expanding His Horizons

After graduation, Mr. Sajwani relocated to Dubai only to establish a business tied to the food catering industry. With this organization, Mr. Sajwani has been able to improve the lives of the less fortunate. Read more: Hussain Sajwani | Crunchbase and Hussain Sajwani | Facebook

That is why in 2017, he graced news headlines for donating AED 2 million towards Ramadan. Aside from that, Hussain Sajwani has often rallied his billionaire associates to donate towards charity.

DAMAC Properties

A few years into the establishment of the food business, Hussain Sajwani managed to start DAMAC Properties. He is now the chief executive officer and of course, the founder.

With his guidance, DAMAC Properties has worked with over 1,000 clients by providing the right property in the commercial or residential industry. Hussain Sajwani develops the right policies required for employees to excel.

Barbara Stokes Thanks Cullman For Welcoming ‘Green Homes’ Production Facility

Stokes Development, LLC. is bringing a new manufacturing facility and a host of new jobs to Cullman, Alabama. Green Structure Homes of Alabama, a division of Stokes Development, will be investing $8 million in the new manufacturing facility. Read more at Business Insider.

Once complete, the plant will employ 80 area residents. The company hopes to expand quickly, however. Within three years of opening its doors, Green Structure Homes of Alabama hopes to employ more than 300 full-time associates. If plans go accordingly, this could be a big boost to the economy of Cullman.

Barbara Stokes, who serves as the CEO of Green Structure Homes of Alabama, issued a statement about the new facility. She expressed the company’s gratitude to the people and local government of Cullman for accommodating the company’s plans. While other cities in Alabama had been considered for the new facility, Barbara admitted sentiment played a part in choosing Cullman. She revealed that she and her husband had made a home in the area several years ago, adding that they wanted to do something to give back to that community. Bringing the new plant and the prospect of so many new jobs seemed like the perfect opportunity.

“Scott and I chose Cullman many years ago, when we decided to purchase a home on Smith Lake,” revealed Ms. Stokes. “We found Cullman to be a great location with friendly people. Setting up business here was the obvious choice.”

The new 99,000 square foot building is to be located within the Cullman Industrial Complex. Although the complex was constructed through a city and county collaboration, it was recently sold to Stokes Development in a separate real estate deal. Read more about Barbara Stokes at WDRB.com.

The homes to be constructed at the new facility will be light-gauge steel homes in the style of those built after Hurricane Katrina. Green Structure Homes of Alabama expects to construct between 500 to 600 of the homes each year. Scott Stokes revealed that the homes will be built using state if the art technology and will be resistant to mild and mildew. Additionally, they will be hurricane resistant. What may be even more impressive than the quality of the homes is that each home will take just two days to build at the facility.

Barbara Stokes added that the constructions will be primarily made from recycled steel. She said the raw materials will mostly come from Cullman, but added that they will also have to ship materials in from Birmingham and Decatur. Ms. Stokes added that the steel is designed to resist other elements as well. She says the homes will be fire resistant.
