Creating a name for oneself is vitally important in any business role. When one has the backing of the government, it becomes even easier. Such is the current situation with Eucatex CEO Flavio Maluf, who is actively working with the Brazilian government to help spread word of mouth about the importance of sustainability and eco-friendly products. Looking at the Costa Rican business model and eco-tourism, it is abundantly clear that such educationally advocacy programs do in fact work and work well. On top of that, the opinion of a country’s safety changes drastically when one becomes associated with ecotourism and friendly protectionary acts such as saving the rainforest. Not to mention that by relocating some of his company’s locations to areas deemed in need of jobs by the government, Flavio Maluf if creating livelihoods and infrastructure to parts of the world which would not otherwise have them. At the same time, this lessens the desire of clear-cutters to over-harvest the forest. Because why ruin the forest when you can instead have a job which you can pass down to your son and his son harvesting renewable Eucalyptus trees which are non-toxic and have healing medicinal qualities? Read this article of Flavio Maluf at Business and Economics.
Speaking of which, Eucatex has introduced a line of paints and varnishes which are based from natural Eucalyptus oil instead of toxic chemicals that when inhaled can cause serious bronchial and other health problems. They also offer Eucalyptus wood flooring, acoustic boards, insulation boards, general MDF construction boards, and much more.
All of this is thanks to Flavio’s grandfather, Salim, following his dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur. In 1951 he bought the largest sawmill in South America, named “Sawmill Americano”, and by 1965 was shipping 100 tons at a time both locally and to Europe where the wood was seen as more exotic.

In 2002, DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani was best known for his catering and hotel empire stretching across the Middle East. In 2002, the focus of Sajwani changed with a change in rules in the United Arab Emirates allowing foreign nationals to purchase property in the desert state. The University of Washington graduate quickly established DAMAC Properties and purchased a piece of land in an area of Dubai many felt would not be a success for a luxury real estate development. Hussain Sajwani proved his doubters wrong by selling every unit in the planned development before construction even began.
In 2018, DAMAC Properties employs more than 2,000 people around the world with the group now expanding its development plans across the Middle East and parts of Europe. The business portfolio of Hussain Sajwani now takes in various luxury real estate developments across global capitals and luxury destinations. One of the most impressive developments offered by the DAMAC owner is the AYKON Maldives Resort which is being constructed on a reclaimed island and will offer more than 100 luxury hotel suites.
AYKON developments are also planned in London where the first tower will be an impressive waterfront tower built on the River Thames which will be decorated by the experts at Versace Home. KNown as Nine Elms Property Limited, the company behind AYKON One is backed in part by DAMAC International and in a lesser way by DAMAC Dubai.
The DAMAC owner understands the need for a diverse set of companies to ensure he is always bringing in different streams of revenue. The DICO Investments group established by DAMAC Owner Hussain Sajwani now manages more than $3 billion in assets across sectors far from the luxury real estate sector. Maintaining links to the sectors which have proven a historic success for DAMAC and Hussain Sajwani is important to the backer of the One Million Arab Coders program who retains an interest in the catering industry he cut his entrepreneurial teeth in.

Michael Hagele recently commented on his favorite hobby: mountain biking. Michael Hagele is not a professional mountain biker, but he does it so much and is so good at it that he is capable of giving great advice to anyone about the subject. The Bro Talk interviewed Michael Hagele and received some pointers about the subject. Read more about Michael Hagele at Inspirery.
He said that nobody should be intimidated by mountain biking because there are different skill levels. If you are a beginner, you can still mountain bike. Of course, there is some fast, hardcore biking that higher-ability people do. Individuals can gradually work their way up to being higher-ability. Everyone who decides to mountain bike should really think hard about their mental and physical well-beings. If a person doesn’t want to work his or her way up to a higher level, he or she does not have to. If someone feels comfortable staying on one level that is lower, there is nothing wrong with that. You don’t have to prove anything—you just have to have fun.
There are a number of ways that a person can start with mountain biking. One thing that a person can do is attend a camp for mountain bike skills. It is a pretty good idea to attend a camp because you may learn things about mountain biking that you never knew, before. Some of these things that you learn could be crucial to your safety, or crucial when it comes to proper technique. Not having the proper technique can lead to a person wasting his or her time by not doing things the right way and never understanding why. It is also a good idea because of the fact that mountain biking is a thing that is potentially dangerous, and being watched by experienced people may decrease the chance of getting seriously injured.

Jacob Gottlieb is an investor who specializes in the healthcare industry. He recently joined up with someone he used to work with 20 years ago, Stuart Weisbrod. They used to work closely with one another when they both worked at Merlin BioMed Group in New York City. They have once again teamed up and now have shared offices so that they can devise investment strategies together.
Stuart Weisbrod was one of the co-founders of Merlin BioMed Group. It was started in 1998 and exclusively invested in companies in the healthcare sector. This included medical devices, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals. He has worked for several investment companies in the past such as Harpel Partners, Oracle Partners, Prudential-Bache Securities, and Merrill Lynch. He also has an extensive educational background including attending Princeton University and holding a Ph.D. in biochemistry.
When Jacob Gottlieb worked with Stuart Weisbrod at Merlin it had been when the biotechnology industry had been at the height of its revolution. In both 1999 and 2000 Merlin BioMed Group had achieved returns of more than 100%. Both Stuart Weisbrod and Jacob Gottlieb had been able to get major clients due to their investing skill including endowments, high net worth individuals and pension funds. Due to unforeseen circumstances, though, Merlin went out of business in 2007.
After Merlin closed its doors Stuart Weisbrod founded a new investment company, Iguana Healthcare Partners. This company, like Merlin, focused on investing in healthcare companies. Jacob Gottlieb also started his own investment firm called Visium Asset Management. He started this firm with $300 million in seed money and just a year later his company was managing $2.5 billion in assets under management. At its height, his company was operating an $8 billion hedge fund.
Visium Asset Management had to close its doors, though, in 2016. Three executives of this company were accused by the FBI and SEC of both insider trading and mismarking. While Jacob Gottlieb was cleared of having committed any crimes himself he nonetheless had to shut his company down in the wake of this event. His new company is Altium Capital and he considers this a fresh start to his career as an investor.
