JHSF needs no introductions. The Brazilian company has over the last two decades grown to become among the largest in the real estate industry. Total the company is valued at more than $3 billion. With plans to expand into the United States (Miami and New York) and Uruguay (Punta del Este), its value will likely significantly increase in the coming years.
JHSF is known for pioneering innovative moves in the real estate industry. Over the course of the first few years of the company’s existence, it purely dealt in residential and mixed residences. It later decided to expand into the shopping mall business and developed its first mall in 1997. The company again divested into the hospitability business by purchasing the Fasano Group of Hotels. Only two years ago, the company again made a daring move by kicking off the process to develop a business airport in Sao Paulo.
JHSF’s recent success could not have been achieved without the input of Jose Auriemo Neto. Mr. Neto has been the company’s Chief Executive Officer for the past 14 years. He is one of JHSF’s most loyal servants having been with the company since 1993. In totality, he oversees a workforce of about 500 employees at the four decade-old company.
Mr. Neto has excelled at almost everything he has done. He studied at the world acclaimed Fundacao Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) University in Sao Paulo. Additionally, in his time with FHSF before being named chief executive officer, he heavily involved in the launching of the company’s services and shopping center departments. These moves marked the company’s shift from a conventional real estate and thus began his journey to dominate the entire industry.
Jose Auriemo’s strong inclination for leadership extends far beyond JHSF. He has previously served as an executive officer at the leadership group, Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO). In fact, his contribution to the organization was so significant that he got two consecutive terms in 2003/2004 and 2004/2005. He has been a member of the organization for more than a decade now.
Flower’s are known for two things in particular: enchanting aromas and striking aesthetics. Orange Coast College possesses a flower that is legendary for lacking both of those characteristics, and the fanfare they have built for it is equally intriguing and beguiling. The enigmatic flora in question is the corpse flower, a rare breed world renowned for its repugnant smell, substantial weight, and incredible bloom. Orange Coast College has named the flower Little Dougie, and according to an article on the Orange County Register, thousands are poised to gather to experience his ‘unique’ aroma first hand.
Hailing originally from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the corpse flower gains its scent from beetles pollinating within. Charmingly enough, the flower gets its name from the fact that it smells like some things dying inside of it. Little Dougie comes in at an impressive five feet and thirty pounds. And while it may seem Dougie’s name is ironic, it’s quite fitting considering his species potential; corpse flowers can weigh up to two hundred pounds. Furthermore, the corpse flower will have its first bloom after roughly a decade of life, with all future blooms happening between 3-5 years until death. That in mind, Little Dougie’s coming of age is quite an event, something the Orange County College knows quite well. Dougie’s senior, Little John, attracted over one thousand visitors to the college for his bloom. With a live stream running at all times and the college bracing for impact, Dougie is poised to surpass his predecessor by a good amount.
The Orange Coast College is far more than Dougie’s living quarters, however. The Campus is an impressive 164 acres, and just a short ways away from Southern California’s famous beaches. The offering of 135 courses of study makes Orange Coast College the premier community college in Southern California and has ranked number one in the area for some time now. With semesters in every season, there is never a wrong time to sign up. If one hopes to get the best education available in Southern California, as well as witness Dougie’s big day, the Orange Coast College is the best option available.

Dick DeVos is an American entrepreneur born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is the son of Richard DeVos, recognized as the 67th richest man in America whose net worth amounts to more than $5.1 billion. He married to Betsy DeVos, and has been doing philanthropic works together.
Even though he was born with a silver spoon, Dick DeVos was taught by his father to work hard in order for him to achieve his goals. He did not get any privilege as a child, even if his family is wealthy and well-known. He was raised by his parents to become someone who knows how to strive and persevere in order to become successful. This lesson that was implanted into the mind of the young Dick DeVos has given him the advantage when he faced the real world. Dick DeVos had his first job at his father’s company, Amway, and he was given different low ranking positions and was being assigned into different departments. He never complained about not being given a high ranking position, and he worked his way to the top by performing well and doing his job right. After serving at a number of departments inside Amway, he was promoted until he became the company’s vice president. Dick DeVos used his skill in order for the company to be driven into success, and because of him, their profits soared high, beating any previous records that they have. Dick DeVos worked for Amway for six years, and decided to leave the corporate world and has told his father that he will join their newly purchased basketball franchise to be one of their managers.
Dick DeVos did not stay for long being a basketball manager, and decided to go back to Amway when his father resigned as the president. His return to Amway has made him the company president, and during his leadership, he tried beating the previous performances that Amway did back when he was still the company vice president. He also spearheaded the expansion of their business into other countries, and they managed to penetrate unreachable markets. Amway has undergone several milestones under the leadership of Dick DeVos, and when he thought that his mission with the company is over, he decided to step down once again, and focused on taking care of his family.
Dick DeVos and Betsy DeVos is currently looking after their own foundation, and has been raising funds for the organizations that they are helping. The two loves to donate to charities and organizations around West Michigan, and their foundation is focusing on five key areas: community, education, arts, justice and leadership. One of their key programs are giving some vouchers and scholarships for American children, ArtPrize competition, Children’s hospital, and so much more.
Are you a young entrepreneur? If you want to be successful, it is important to choose the right place to live in. How many people you have access to and how many resources you can access will largely depend on the city you live in.
Sawyer Howitt, a successful Young Entrepreneur, gives us some advice on which are the best cities for young entrepreneurs.
The first is San Francisco. This is not a surprising choice. It is a hub for young entrepreneurs and tech startups. Twitter is based there. So are many other startups, including Yelp and Uber. Almost half of all residents have higher degrees of education, and the median income is over sixty thousand dollars per year. You will have access to many entrepreneurs in San Francisco.
The next is Austin, Texas. This is also a very attractive place for entrepreneurs. One million and seven hundred thousand dollars in loans are given out to small businesses for every one hundred thousand residents that live there. The next is Salt Lake City, Utah. It is known as a clean and developed city. Brigham Young University is located in the area, and the students at the university have raised over seventeen million dollars, which they have given out to startup companies. Palo Alto, California, is another good choice. Paypal, Facebook, Tesla, HP, and Pinterest have all done business in Palo Alto. Finally, Santa Monica, California, is another great choice for young entrepreneurs.
