Have you ever wondered why Ms. Doe Deere of Lime Crime has so many followers on her Instagram? Why is her business so successful and popular? Really and truly, how does she do it? First of all, Ms. Deere is an internet sensation due to her witty and creative mind and persona; this she knows well! She is also a hard worker, and believes in the power of doing what one truly loves! She is a firm CEO with the cosmetics and makeup business, who also knows how to kick back and have fun while she does it. This I greatly admire in a woman! She is a woman of business who knows her business like no other! She has also had the unique privilege of meeting Prince at one point in time, prior to his recent departure from this world. You may even find a photo of the two of them together in any Google search. Doe Deere may be seen branding her products, smile and personality, or even her own employees as they work hard to make the company all the more off a success than it is today. She may also be seen with uniquely dyed hair colors….on some days light blue, on some days, pink, on some days green, etc. She truly is a woman who does not say ‘no’ to a challenge, including that of diversity and of ‘spicing things up’. Such qualities in one individual alone have surely brought her to the top where she is today, and continue to only do so! Women: take heed here. This message of inspiration and encouragement is for all of you out there! You may have come across several photos of Doe Deree on social sites, her beautiful face painted with hues that speak about her brand, Lime Crime. Doe Deree is an entrepreneur that has ventured into the creative industry, specifically beauty and her brand Lime Crime is among leading companies that are offering make up, clothes, accessories and beauty ideas. In an interview with Galoremag, Doe Deree explains that her love for color and artistic illustration began right from childhood and she nurtured her passion into what is now a successful career and business.
During her first makeup experience, she was only nine. Together with her two best friends, they wore outfit to conjure spirits; long, witchy skirts and ragged tops, but something was lacking in the setup. She could not proceed with the ritual without having her face painted to match with the clothes.
Therefore, Doe Deree took her bag and picked tools for makeup smearing. With this, she piled dark pink eye shadow and brown lip gloss, on herself and the two best friends. However, her friends thought she was not in her senses, but her craftiness made the experience memorable. Her success at this level allowed her to believe she could do more than just painting.
Best and worst moments in makeup
Despite what most people believe, Doe Deree has also had rough times in her pursuit for makeup and beauty. Until she attained the age of 20, she was not good at makeup, but that did not repulse her from exploring the world of makeup and fashion. After coming across theatrical makeup brands, she began experimenting with different ideas. Looking good was not the focus, but mastering the art, which she achieved quite well before her mid 20s.
Lime Crime: What’s in a name?
The name Lime Crime traces its origin from Doe Deree’s eBay store launched in 2004. She needed to name the store and the first keyword that popped in her mind is limecrime. At that time, nobody thought of such stores as brands, so everyone picked a handle haphazardly.
She registered limecrime as a brand since she had used the name before on eBay and was able to reap good results. Most people thought Limecrime would not be persuasive as a brand since there were other suggestions that would fit fashion and makeup more accurately. She kept it anyway and to her surprise, it has become one of the biggest and most admired brands in the fashion market.

Do NOT let any one tell you, ladies, that you are not special…..that you are not someone….that you can never rise to greatness. You can. The power of belief lies within each and every single individual, of which no two are alike. The choice to write your destiny and seal your fate once and for all are in your own hands. The pen of the writer is yours….what will you write as your success story? See Ms. Deere as but one example of the many in successful, entrepreneurial women who have, quite literally, “re-written the rules” in regards to what it takes to be successful and how to ‘stick with it’ in any industry. Did you know that Ms. Deere has been listed as a Top Inspiring Female Entrepreneur by Self-Made magazine? If that does not rustle your feathers towards what can be done, then note this: she also leads the fight for freedom, naming her each and every true follower a “fearless Unicorn”. A unicorn of hers in one who works hard and does not accept ‘no’ for an answer….and is willing to re-write the rules of awesome, writing one’s own! A Unicorn, according to Ms. Doe, is one who is typically not average and goes above expectations….making a mark on society in any way big or small. She often speaks of them.
WEN by Chaz has been around for some time now and built up a major global fan base. Loyal customers love the healthy way the no-lather shampoo cleanses and cares for any hair type out there.
Chaz Dean is the well-respected California celebrity stylist who developed the unique cleansing conditioners to treat the hair from root to end by adding body, strength and super shine. The secret is in his holistic approach and lifestyle. Chaz Dean removed the nasty sulfates and other chemical compounds that give shampoos and conditioners frothiness, because these harsh detergents actually ruin the hair shaft. His natural, plant-based formulas create big, beautiful hair. Check out http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html.
That’s the kind of Hollywood mane Bustle.com blogger Emily McClure dreamed of. So, she decided to test WEN by Chaz for one week and post her results.
Emily is cursed with limp hair that doesn’t hold a style long and occasionally frizzes. She chose the FIG cleansing conditioner and scheduled a daily morning WEN wash followed by blow-drying and styling.
Right away, as Emily massaged Wen into her medium length locks, she felt the difference. Her hair swelled in thickness and lay smooth. After she completed her styling, she was wowed. Her hair was super glossy, bouncy and soft. She began posting daily hair selfies to show proof that WEN by Chaz really delivers a healthy, Hollywood mane. Emily loved the compliments she was receiving on her “new” hair.
As long as you stick to a morning wash, and then follow it up with a blow-dry and styling, your hair on WEN will always look beautiful, Emily concluded. If you throw off the routine and skip a wash or try WEN before bedtime, the results are not as big and bouncy.
Following his resignation due to growing health concerns this February, the former chief executive officer of the buyout firm CCMP Capital Advisors died at only 52 years of age on March 12th. Though more details were not made immediately available, the New York based company’s spokeswoman, Alexandra LaManna did reach out via email to confirm this much.
As a founding partner of CCMP, Steve Murray was there to see just how it evolved from JPMorgan Chase & Co. in 2006 so as to avoid conflicts with clients of the bank. Specializing in middle market leveraged buyouts and growth equity investments, CCMP was able to raise their funds to an astounding $3.6 billion just last year alone.
The firm’s CEO, Greg Brenneman released an email stating how saddened they are to have lost their friend and former partner. “Steve was a terrific investor and deal maker.” On average, the firm invests anywhere from $100 million to $500 million of equity per transaction.

For the most part, CCMP hones their focus in on the consumer, industrial, health care and energy sectors. With investments like Cabela’s Inc., Quiznos Corp. and Warner Chilcott Plc., the success of the firm has been cemented.
Having been raised in a suburb of New York City located within Westchester County, Steve Murray earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College along with a Master of Business Administration from Columbia University before gaining a promising position as a credit trainee with Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co. back in 1984. It was there that he would eventually rise to become vice president of middle market lending and join the private equity and leveraged finance unit of the company in 1989.
This particular unit preceded what would later become CCMP. Three mergers later, Manufacturers Hanover joined with JPMorgan in 2000 naming Steve Murray head of the bank’s buyout business just five years later.
Prior to the spinoff, CCMP was known as JPMorgan Partners largely investing in middle market deals with the bank’s private equity clients. In the beginning, the merger did anger certain other founding groups such as Henry Kravis of KKR.
JPMorgan struggled to bring them deals which could have been seen as favoring their in-house firm. However, the relationship has healed and is considered much better separate than together. While Steve Murray leaves behind a legacy of leadership and integrity, he is most importantly survived by his wife Tami A. Murray and their four children.
As reported in an article by Business Insider, Ed-tech startup Class Dojo is changing the way teachers communicate with parents and students. This startup is going viral and catching on with millions of users all accross the world. Launched in 2011, in Palo Alto, this revolutionary app is now used in 2 in 3 schools and 90% of school districts. According to the company, it is being used in 180 countries accross the globe.
This impressive little app has an impressive reach, despite it’s humble origins. It started in Palo Alto. Created by Welsh born Sam Chaudry and his partner Liam Don. Chaudry came to Palo Alto on a 90 day tourist visa, and spent the first week living and working in the same little room with Don. In order to create their app, they reached out to teachers, and tried to discover what they would want out of an app.
90 days later, the pair returned to England without a completed app, but they never stopped asking teachers the same question “What’s the worst part of teaching?” Their persistence and perseverance has paid off, and today the app is the most used and downloaded educatational app. The app has been credited with creating a positive culture in classrooms and schools.
According to Lindsey McKinley, head of communications at Class Dojo, the app was downloaded nearly 550,000 times during the back to school season last year. Positive feedback and publicity mean that this app is continuing to go viral, so the numbers could be even larger next year.
The app creates a special social media experince for each teacher’s classroom. It allows students, teachers, and parents to communicate with one another in a way that is familiar to them. The app, which is availble for download through the Google Play and iTunes stores, is a communication platform that allows teachers to post photos and videos of students artwork.
The communications platform created by Class Dojo makes communication between teachers, students, and parents much easier and much more effective. It solves many of the problems that teachers previously had with communication. Teachers can send individual messages, post photos and videos, and send mass messages. They can also translate messages into multiple languages, a feature that is shared by parents.
Class Dojo raised nearly $21 million in its Series B round of venture capital fundraising, and it is easy to see why. The app has revolutionized the way teachers and parents communicate. In addition to the other features of the app, students are given cute monstar avatars and are rewarded for positive behavior and skills learned through the app. Parents are also able to check in and see how their child is doing on a daily basis.

A complaint was filed some months ago within Nevada district courts by Relmada Therapeutics. The complaint was since been amended and a temporary injunction has also been filed. Relmada claims that Laidlaw and Company is in breach of contract and also seeks restitution against this company for unpaid costs and fees. While this seems on the surface to be an adverse finding, Laidlaw remains strong and unbowing in its dedication to stockholders and its company. A letter sent to shareholders concerning this matter reflects this and focuses on moving forward positively.
Some people may not be aware of Laidlaw and Associates this far. With solid figures at the helm in James Ahern and Matthew Eitner, Laidlaw has blazed a path to the top and created a noted presence in the work of stockbroking and shareholding alike. While occasional setbacks have occurred in the past with some clients, Laidlaw has been quick to address any such items and to resolve them with payments to meet customer satisfaction goals.
James Ahern is a recognized figure in New York as well. Ahern attended college in New York. He has also been in business within the world of finance for over a decade, and his clients know him for being both considerate of their interests and sharply intuitive in business at the same time. While these complaints seem to pose temporary roadblocks for Laidlaw, the future is looking bright and promising for these trailblazers to forge on ahead!

Use An Elevator Pitch. Journalists only have a limited amount of time to listen to your story, so keep it to about 11 seconds.
Focus on One Topic. Only contact a key journalist who specializes in the one, and only one, topic you are describing.
Tell an Interesting Story. It is a story you want conveyed, not an advertisement, so keep it too the basics: timing, significance, proximity, prominence, and human interest.
Identify Your Audience. This should probably be an Assignment Editor or a Managing Editor. Invite them to join in social media with you, especially on sites like LinkedIn and Twitter.
Cater To Journalists. They demand a lot, so give it to them: lots of accurate data, good photographs, and answer any of their questions.
