For Xenia Vorotova, America has always been that beacon of hope and opportunity and overall great society that welcomed all to its shores. Xenia Vorotova was born in Izhevsk, Russia where she idealized the land of the free. through magazines and Hollywood movies, Vorotova was completely in love with the idea of one-day setting foot in America.
That dream would suddenly come t fruition as their mother announced that she along with her sister would be moving to New York City. Vorotova quickly understood that this was her chance to make it big in America, as the saying goes, if you can make it here (N.Y) you can make it anywhere. At the age of 17, Vorotova was on her way to the big apple with her family and to begin her dream.
As the family arrived she quickly realized the enormous scale of the city, something that no movie ever did justice to it. However, they knew that the reality was that in a place like New York, you either swim or sink and she and her mother work ready to work hard. Although her mother was accomplished accounted back in her home country of Russia, here in the United States her credentials meant nothing unless she had proper paperwork behind it. Performing jobs such as cleaning for the wealth was their only means of work and even that was not enough to keep them from having to check into a homeless shelter. Stuck living in a tiny room with her sister and mother, Vorotova wondered if her family would ever be able to live the American dream.
It was not until the year 1999 that they finally caught a break, a social worker would introduce them to Dorchen Leidholdt, a lawyer and advocate for immigrant families that have fallen in hard times. She quickly noticed Vorotova’s (Doe Deere) talent and helped her get into the New York Fashion Institute of technology. In the end, Doe Deere, a moniker that Vorotova began using in 2000 would go on to own and operate her own makeup company in the form of Lime Crime.

The APM models involve providing quality service and the complete repayment of the cost of care measures. More advanced APMs provide clients with a high revenue with a trade-off where providers accept risks regardless of patient consequences. A bundled payment refers to a situation whereby a paying client revokes a single fixed settlement fee of all the care and services provided to a certain patient during a specified period. If the hospital staff provide a service less than what was expected, the client receives more than the initial cost agreement. If the hospital staff over exceed expectations than what was the determined bundled price, they are set to be paid much less.
Bundled payments for Care Improvement-Advanced Initiative (BPCI-A) qualifies as an APM in that it meets the three based qualifications: utilization of EHR (electronic health record) that is certified, payments are made based on quality of service akin to the MIPS requirements, and the candidates carry a higher nominal amount in regards to financial risk. Due to the double-sided risk of the voluntary bundled program, hospital staff is tested with CMS if they qualify for the 5% bonus by receiving feedback from patients. March 31st marks the date for the first QP determination.

Through Sherpa Capital where he is the former managing director, Pishevar has invested in top companies such as Uber, Hyperloop One, Airbnb and others. Through his efforts, there is a huge number of companies that can attest to doing well due to the impact he has had on them. On matters economy, he well versed and can guide others on the direction to take.
In February 2018, Shervin Pishevar tweeted about the performance of the economy and other matters. He pointed out that the economy would not do well in the coming months. There was every indication that the economy would since every economic indicator was going down. The stock market was collapsing at the time of the tweets. Pishevar was projecting a 6,000 points drop in the market. The performance of the economy is directly linked with the performance of the equities market, and therefore there is no way the equities market would lose, and the economy remains intact. Shervin Pishevar also pointed out all assets that support the economy would be overvalued, and as a result, none would come to the rescue of the economy.
To make matters worse, Pishevar insisted that the measures that are normally taken by the federal reserve to support the economy would no longer work since they have been used so many times that they are no longer effective. The Federal Reserve is used to pumping money into the market, an outdated method that can no longer achieve the objective according to Shervin Pishevar.
Shervin used the tweet storm to lay out his thought about bitcoin. In his opinion, bitcoin is a great idea but could not maintain the high prices it had at the beginning of the year. He predicted that the prices would reach the $2-5k range. It did not take long before this prediction came out true. Bitcoin has been on a meltdown for months now.

He said in the case of stock-based loans, the interest rate ranges from 3 and 4 percent and that loan-to-value ratios vary from 50 to 75 percent; it is “non-recourse” the borrower does not have to use the money for a particular purpose and therefore can decide to opt out of their borrowed loans without having to pay outstanding interest even when their collateral value has reduced.
