Jay Z and his friend, OG Juan, had an epic night out during President’s Day weekend of 2018. They spent an amazing amount of money on OG Juan’s birthday party which culminated in a bar bill that topped $100,000. A photo of the receipt was posted online and quickly spread with people wondering how in the world they spent that much and just in the world is OG Juan anyway.
It was soon found out that OG Juan is the president of Jay Z’s firm, Roc Nation. He is married to another top executive, Desiree Perez, and together they manage most of this company’s activities. He was turning 50 and so they all decided to celebrate this milestone in a blow-out style.
The people invited to the party gathered at New York City’s Zuma restaurant. This cost $13,000. The party headed to Inwood’s Made in Mexico where another $9,000 was spent on a round of drinks. The party was just getting started at this point, though, and the cost didn’t come anywhere near what happened later.
There were still 6 people celebrating OG Juan’s birthday when they gathered at the Playroom, a popular high-end nightclub. 40 bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne was bought. Yes, 40, not a typo. They gave some of these bottles out to other people in the room and poured out dozens of rounds. The tab for this amount of luxury wine? $91,135. That was with the tip of a bit over $11,000.
OG Juan and Jay Z decided to take a picture of the receipt and put it up on Snapchat. Everyone was soon talking about it. What people didn’t know until later, though, was that Jay Z didn’t actually pick up the tab. OG Juan wanted to pay for his own party and so he was the one who handed over his credit card.
Recently, Sunday Riley skin care products were featured on Oprah. They are now one of Oprah’s favorite things for 2018! The items were also reviewed in Allure magazine and were the topic of one of the writers conversations over lunch with her friend.
Sunday Riley’s website is personal and welcoming. She (@sundayriley) writes in a warm and clean tone that makes you feel like you are her best friend. She relates to being a busy mom of four and barley having time to shower let alone get to a yoga class. She lists the products of her Subscription box for wellness 2018 on her website an provides pictures and descriptions of each item.
According to Deanna Pai writer for Allure magazine she had never heard of the products that Sunday Riley has launched and became intrigued after having lunch with a friend who mentioned the items to her. Immediately the friend remarked about how the packaging seemed safer than most because it didn’t seem intimidating like other brands that warn about using Retinol. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative and can cause some reddening and exfoliation of the skin if used improperly. She also commented on how the names were “cute” and she would buy the just because the names sounded safe and fun.
The two went on to discuss the products in more detail and finished there lunch. They did some investigating of the products and the name brand itself and found it hails from Houston and the oil is formulated in a safe amount of Retinol and other ingredients. Just enough to do the job. Sunday Riley products are very well researched and she herself is a chemist and studies the formulations in great detail before launching a product. The cost of product is high, however, does not derail her fans from getting new product as soon as it becomes available.

Presently, it is engaging in long-standing efforts to curb homelessness in Texas. It has funded numerous events to provide food and clothing for homeless children.

Most people who drop out of college don’t fare too well in their careers; sure – college dropouts include the likes of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerburg, though most people who start college just to drop out aren’t as successful as the aforementioned trio.
David Zalik – while his name isn’t as popular as the above three tech giants, he’s made a name for himself as one of the world’s few billionaires – founded GreenSky LLC of Atlanta, Georgia, 12 years ago. Today, GreenSky is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, is worth more than $5 billion as of 2018, and Zalik is worth more than $2 billion.
Here’s how GreenSky does it
GreenSky makes the entirety of its revenue through GreenSky Credit, a lending programthat is operated primarily through its self-titled mobile app. Very few other lenders make obtaining financing for whatever applicants could want as easy as GreenSky Credit does; one way that GreenSky Credit hedges risk against its broad debtor base is by only offering a maximum of $65,000 to each debtor – and that’s only to its most trusted debtors.
Applicants can opt to receive as little as $1,000 at once if they choose to, however.
GreenSky Credit is a unique lender
When most people think of lenders, they think of banks and other financial institutions who lend their own money to debtors. GreenSky is unique to most lenders in the industry because they don’t put forth their own capital – they essentially serve as an intermediary between lenders and applicants.
GreenSky Credit can be selective in its application process, though one offset to its exclusiveness is the ease in which clients can apply for loans. They don’t have to visit banks in person or otherwise take chunks of time out of their respective, busy days just to take a gamble on whether they’re going to receive funding or not. GreenSky Credit lets its home improvement crowd of business-use clients stay on the job and apply on their lunch breaks – it’s that simple.
Real estate is a form of investment that capitalists are encouraged to take. When it comes to performance, this sector has been doing exemplary well with the returns taking a positive trend. Limitations are also encountered such as poor geographical and climate conditions. This is not different from what was encountered in St Joe Company as per the research carried out by Sahm Adrangi alongside Kerrisdale Capital. St Joe Company is an establishment that is coming up very well. This firm has been established in Panama Beach where development has been ongoing.
Most of the times, valuation is conducted by different individuals using different methods. This is done specifically to enhance accuracy. Sahm Adrangi is also a financial analyst who comes up with computations to prove that indeed St Joe Company had been overestimated. These estimations had been done in terms of the firm’s present value. Sahm Adrangi also conducted extensive research on the company shares and found out that they had been undervalued. This devaluation had come as a result of some commercial developments that had been planned but never happened. Overestimation of land holdings and failure among the part owners also contributed to the devaluation.
St. Joe Company had an intention of establishing enterprises that will generate monthly income and a recreation site for the customers. This firm has also embraced diversification by buying a particular piece of land that had been lying idle with the intention of improving it. When it comes to purchasing of land usually, this is a legal process that takes time. Sahm Adrangi has challenged the company for lack of advancement on the investment. He went ahead and stated that the only solution that will sort out the delay is proper valuation of the property.
In any organization, the shareholders happen to be the key players. They may be either the reason behind the success or failure of a firm. Sahm Adrangi advised that liquidation of shares can be a solution to overvaluation. He based his argument on the new rules placed by the SEC. The only way that this would work is by depriving some of the shares of the holders.
