Aloha Construction is famous for its transparency and loyalty, and those qualities are what caught the eye of local celebrity Dan Bernstein who has joined forces with Aloha Construction and worked together on several different initiatives.
If you are a local Chicago native, you know who Dan Bernstein is! He is one of the most popular announcers on Chicago’s 670 The Score, plus he co-hosts “Bernstein and Goff” which holds the distinctive title of being the longest-running sports show in Chicago. He is one of the most popular and recognizable personalities in the Windy City and many people hold him in very high regard. For these reasons, Aloha Construction is honored to be paired up with him. Both represent the best of Chicago!
BBB Torch Award-winning Aloha Construction worked with Dan Bernstein on a very important charity initiative that benefited Camp One Step of Children’s Oncology Services. Camp One Step of Children’s Oncology Services helps children who are suffering from cancer and gives them a chance at having a more fruitful life. The camp is designed to give the kids a break from their treatment through fun and wholesome summer camp experiences.
Aloha Construction donated $2,500 dollars to Camp One Step of Children’s Oncology Services and Dave Bernstein launched the “Building Better Communities” initiative that also supported the charity. The two came together over their love for the children of Chicago and their desire to do good work. Their shared values of honesty, transparency and a strict moral and ethical code make Dan Bernstein and Aloha natural allies and partners.
It is imperative that all players in a community come together and do good work, especially as it relates to the children of the community. A shared passion for hard work, honesty and giving back has brought these two powerhouses together in a very important way. It was a good day for Chicago when Dan Bernstein and Aloha Construction decided to get together.
GreenSky Credit is an a typical finance company headquartered in Atlanta that provides loans for housing and home-improvement projects and is doing extremely well. Its CEO, David Zalik, co-founded the company in 2006 and, since then, has stood out for not only his success but also for – unlike many other financial startups – having no difficulties working with big banks. Among other things, GreenSky Credit generates and services loans for major banks and earns tidy profits as a result.
The company is known for being “frictionless.” In fact, clients can apply for a loan on their cell phone and get a decision within seconds. While GreenSky Credit rarely offers loans over $65,000, they do a tremendous volume of business, and they farm out some of their services to contractors to reduce overhead.
Zalik has become a billionaire through his company, but he’s not the type to toot his own horn; in fact, he rarely gives interviews or speaks with the press. Nevertheless, Zalik is drawing headlines in the financial press by taking the first steps towards making GreenSky Credit public, and an IPO to the tune of five billion is being forecast. Because of Zalik’s comfort in both the corporate and startup communities, the Wall Street debut of his GreenSky Credit is something savvy investors are looking forward to.
While running a highly innovative company, Zalik is known for his old-fashioned financial conservatism. The culture at GreenSky Credit isn’t like the go-go image that many startups present. There are no ping-pong tables at the office or catered concerts by rock stars for employees. Like Warren Buffet, Zalik doesn’t waste a penny no matter how successful he becomes. Perhaps this attitude comes from the company’s humble origins; for the first eight years of its history, Zalik relied on a mere 10 million, raised with his own real estate as collateral, to keep the operation going.
There is a growing trend in corporate America. This trend is the realization that giving to charity can pay off in a business sense. Many companies are realizing that by donating more charity its helps people realize that they as a company care about their fellow humans. Supporting communities is also a good move in that it allows individuals to get assistance that they would otherwise be able to get. In realizing the financial benefits to the shrines many corporations are creating charitable arms of their businesses. These charitable branches are able to focus 100% of their attention on finding the best charity for their company’s money. By giving at this type of attention they are able to ensure that they are helping out the best calls available.
Stream energy was one is the first companies to realize the benefit of supporting their community. Stream energy created separate friends called stream cares. This branch focuses on helping out where they can. Stream energy believes that it is beneficial to give back. Stream cares focuses on many different projects. One of these projects that they are very proud of is their support of children in need. Stream cares focuses on providing assistance for homeless children. This assistance comes in the form of financial health as well as help with getting basic necessities. They also bring homeless children to a water park for the day. While this may sound shortsighted this generosity provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to its beneficiaries.
Another benefit of having a dedicated charitable arm of the business means that they are able to act quicker and more decisively. For instance, when hurricane Harvey devastated Houston Texas stream energy was able to act quickly. The company responded immediately to the needs of the citizens of Houston Texas. Floodwaters rose over night destroying many homes and trapping thousands in their homes. The devastation also has long-term effects on many people. It left more vulnerable individuals without home or source of income. This loss can easily put people in situations of homelessness for years after the initial disaster. Luckily organizations like stream cares were available to help people get back on their feet.

In the healthcare industry, new services or products that claim to be the next greatest thing are a dime a dozen. But, what if there were a service or product that actually lived up to its claims? There is, and this new service comes in the form of a company that was created by Dr. Mark McKenna. The company is called OVME, and it allows its customers to take part in a revolutionary system that connects them directly with healthcare practitioners who employ aesthetic treatments. OVME offers its patients Botox injections, help with losing weight, and cosmetic surgery that can help people to feel their best.
Dr. Mark McKenna draws on the best of the best in the aesthetic medical industry by connecting patients with only the best in the field. While OVME is just getting started, it is already slowly becoming a well-known company. Dr. Mark McKenna knows that one day OVME will be a brand that most people will be familiar with. People know that Botox injections can be risky, and they want to know that the professional they are hiring is the best at what they do. This is what McKenna’s company will be offering, and he plans on disrupting the industry by offering a brand that can eventually be accessed all over the United States.
- Mark McKenna has created a medical service that functions something like Uber does. Soon, people will know that if they want custom-ordered cosmetic medical services that they can simply get on OVME’s website. Once there, they can log in and pick out the service they want. They can then take a look at all of the practitioners in their area and choose the one with the best ratings and that feels like a match for them. After scheduling a consultation through the app with the health professional, they can get that done and then book a time for the procedure to take place. This can take place in the comfort and familiar settings of their own home. While this is wonderful news for patients who have been hoping for a service like this, healthcare practitioners will love it too.

Graham Edwards was recently appointed as the new executive chairman of the Telereal Trillium Company after serving since 2009. With his appointment as the chair has led to a series of reshuffling in the company where the former managing director known as Russell Gurnhill will assume office as the chief executive. Meanwhile, Gurnhill’s former office will be occupied by Adam Dakin with his main role being in charge of business and services.

The Telereal Trillium Company has partnerships with several other organizations in the property sector such as the DVLA, Aviva, Royal Mail, and BT. Besides, the London based company has its targets focussed on a growth strategy that will help the organization own the largest portfolios in the real estate sector of the United Kingdom.

Jeunesse Global has risen to become one of the most important brands in the global health and beauty industry. Starting from the humblest beginnings, Jeunesse went from a garage-based startup that was the brainchild of a retired Florida couple into one of the most rapidly expanding and high-selling companies in the world of health and beauty.
But as unlikely as this story sounds, Jeunesse cofounders Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis were no ordinary Florida retirees. The couple had been known for decades as two of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the North American direct-selling business, having formed dozens of companies that were highly successful.
As Ray and Lewis approached their 70s, they thought they would give retirement a try. But the couple didn’t anticipate the loss of action, excitement and meaning that would come with endless days of idleness and boredom. Within just a couple of weeks, Ray and Lewis had already resolved to start another company. They began selling a few health and beauty products out of their garage. And the rest is history.
Throughout the growth of Jeunesse, the driving factor behind the company’s success has been its ability to spot market niches that had gone unanswered by the biggest names in the industry. One example of the company’s innovative products is its Instantly Ageless micro-crème and facial cleanser.
Instantly Ageless was conceived as a low-cost means to deliver salon-quality care to those who require high-end skin cleansing but have neither the big money nor the big time required to go to salons. Instantly Ageless also packs one of the most potent anti-aging substances known to modern beauty care. Called APT-200, Jeunesse Global’s patented anti-aging molecule has been clinically demonstrated to erase the worst effects of aging from users’ skin.
APT-200 is able to reduce wrinkles, prevent the formation of new wrinkles and restore youthful elasticity that has been lost to the aging process. The molecule is also able to give facial skin a healthy and vibrant glow that only Jeunesse Global products can deliver. It is one of the many products that Jeunesse has developed to create Generation Young.

Shervin Pishevar is considered to be one of the most influential venture capitalists in the world today, and as the co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop One, as well as Sherpa Ventures, he has made a career of identifying and investing in upstarts that would eventually rise to prominence, becoming globally recognized brands. Companies such as Airbnb, Warby Parker, Slack, Rapportive, Dollar Shave Club and Rap Genius were all recognized by Shervin Pishevar for their enormous potential long before they became mainstays in the eyes of the general public. The graduate of the University of California, Berkeley initially studied in the field of molecular cellular biology, making the transition into the world of entrepreneurship shortly after college after realizing the potential within himself to flourish in this field. Due to his stellar set of credentials, the world often pays close attention when Shervin Pishevar speaks, as he usually takes to Twitter to deliver his perspective regarding the general state of the market and the future of the American economy.
In his glorious return to Twitter, after a short layoff, Shervin Pishevar touched on a number of topics that are due to change the climate of America, including the future of the stock market. During the delivery of his succession of tweets, which spanned 24 hours, he stated that the stock market would soon experience a 6000 point drop off. With the stock market currently in flux, which has been occurring since the early part of the year, this prediction seemed wholly feasible, but not many people saw the 1000 point loss that followed. Losing 500 points in just 30 minutes, the entirety of the market began relinquishing its perceived safety, which had been consistently championed by the US President, Donald Trump. Shervin Pishevar immediately addressed President Trump following the Dow Jones’ substantial loss, tweeting that “Presidents should not be cheering the stock market,” and following it up with a hashtag named “TrumpDump,” which quickly caught on throughout the Twitter community. If Mr. Pishevar, who has been correct on so many occasions regarding financial issues, is correct, the United States is in for a number of drastic changes.
