Investing isn’t easy to hop right into and succeed. As a matter of fact, most investors start out losing money, choosing active approaches high in fees and risk that doesn’t pan out well.

China’s economy is intrinsically linked to that of Brazil

Brazil imports high quantities of raw materials from China, more so than any country in the world. Similarly, Brazil conducts more transactions with China than entities from any other nation. As such, it’s important for investors to keep a close watch on current events in the Chinese financial sector.

Brazil’s political landscape could bring changes

Not too long ago, finance minister Guide Mantega drafted an economic plan that infamously failed. While it’s impossible to predict the future, if tried and true politicians fill the role of finance minister, it’s likely that Brazil’s overall market will improve.

Don’t stray from the largest banks

Itau Unibanco, Bradesco, and Banco do Brasil are three of the ten largest financial institutions in all of Brazil. Banks without immaculate reputations may withhold or outright steal investor’s money. As such, investors should never wander outside the offerings from Brazil’s top ten largest banks, no matter what.

U.S. Money Reserve Helps Raise Funds for Hurricane Harvey Victims

U.S. Money Reserve has taken a lead role in helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey get back on their feet in the wake of the devastating storm. They are working with the Austin Disaster Relief Network in a partnership to bring crisis relief as promptly as possible.

The relief efforts of the combined endeavor will include financial assistance, transportation for emergency housing units, and the opportunity for victims to receive counseling for emotional and spiritual needs.

A relief fund was organized by the precious metals dealer and they generously matched all donations in the month of September. U.S. Money Reserve utilized the YouCaring website which gave people an opportunity to help support the victims and they matched each donation dollar for dollar.

The natural disaster was an event that hit close to home for U.S. Money Reserve as several of their employees were directly affected as well as many of their customers. Although the company’s headquarters are in Austin, they also have offices in Beaumont and Lumberton which are much closer to Houston and felt the full weight of the storm. They were eager to help Houston which was so welcoming during the days of their founding.

Hurricane Harvey caused an enormous amount of damage and it was the first hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. since Wilma in 2005. Read more: US Money Reserve | Built In Austin and US Money Reserve | Twitter

Its devastating effects were felt over the course of four days and the rainfall that it generated was estimated at 45-60 inches. This caused widespread flooding and escape routes which used to be roads became rivers.

The number of people who lost their homes entirely was in the thousands and the possessions that they were able to bring with them were minuscule. The tragic loss of life was over eighty people and many lives were forever changed.

The aftermath of the hurricane left many additional problems to contend with and contaminated water was one that became a serious issue. Toxic chemicals and sewage were two things that made the water dangerous and there were others also. The estimated damage was put at around $180 billion.

U.S. Reserve is one the leaders in the precious metals business and they have extensive offerings of official government issued coins that contain gold, silver, and platinum. They were founded in 2001 and have steadily grown to become one the world’s largest private distributors of these products.

They also offer their customers an industry-leading expertise which has helped them serve over 400,000 people. They are led by the renowned former director of the U.S. Mint whose reputation is at the apex of the business. Philip N. Diehl has enjoyed a remarkable career and knows precious metals like few others.

Nathaniel Ru’s Sweetgreen Business Model

Many people might think the idea of a restaurant company that sells nothing but salads might be a absolutely dreadful business idea; if you did you would be dead wrong. The company that is proving this is Sweetgreen, a independent and nation wide restaurant chain that took off after receiving creative backing from big names like Danny Meyer, Steve Case and Daniel Boulud. One of the primary reasons for the food chain’s success is its menu items which consist of absolutely nothing but salads. They are not, however, just any old salads but freshly made with a wide variety of delectable variations, all sourced from local farms who ship their produce directly (which naturally helps family owned farms as well by cutting out the middle, so to speak). If the companies food could be summed up in three words it would be, organic, healthy and fresh.

 

The companies co-founder, partner and CEO, Nathaniel Ru has publically stated that he and the Sweetgreen team wanted to make a restaurant whose product would make people feel good rather than just full; one which would be healthy and sustainable. That is to say, a restaurant that stood for something. The 32 year old Californian also noted in a recent interview with Forbes that the company has seen great success in differentiating itself from other similar venues such as Chipotle by entering the market in locations and areas that are not conventionally thought of as fast food zones such as tech and high business sectors.

 

However, it is not just what Mr. Ru and his team are doing on the ground and in their stores that is bringing so many people clamoring for salads as if they were made of gold, for there is also the question of technology. All of the founders and leaders of Sweetgreens (including Ru) are extremely tech savvy and worked in the technology industry prior to creating the restaurant chain which gave them a huge leg up in terms of graphics creation, app and mobile tech designation, SEO, hosting and all the other particulars that have now become a integral component of any successful modern day business model.
