The Housing & Community Development group was also involved. Kevin has already had a major success story as the result of his program. Kevin has known Jerel Brown mother since the time that Jerel was only 10 years old. She and Kevin used to work together in the local government of Baltimore City. She felt that she was locked out of the housing market because of her low salary. They could not find upgraded properties that were affordable to them.
Then they talked to Kevin Seawright. He encouraged them to get a renovated home in Baltimore’s metro area. They jumped on the opportunity. Jerel’s mother said she felt excited to finally own a home. The house itself looked like something out of a magazine. Kevin felt honored that he could bring the Brown family joy in this way.
According to Crunchbase, Kevin Seawright and RPS Solutions continue to look for ways to spread the joy of home ownership to more first time home owners in the Baltimore area. His target is to increase the home ownership rate to 48.3% which is the statewide level of home ownership.
Startups often get their start with a lot of uncertainty, but what matters most is that they get the proper incubation period. This means that they have a time period of coming up with a sound business model as well as how to achieve the goals that are a part of that business model. Every entrepreneur is light on resources coming into starting a new business, and that’s why Marc Sparks started Timber Creek Capital LP.
The new office is designed to accommodate three companies during their incubation stage. This means that they are able to collaborate in an environment that is not only attractive, but it’s also important that these companies are able to meet with the right folks to get guidance on the legal aspects of business as well as design, digital resources, and how to generate revenue.
Everything from the design of the office used for collaboration, as well as tumultuous experiences have all contributed to the journey of entrepreneurship for Sparks. Sparks shares his own story in his book, They Can’t Eat You. Sparks encouraged entrepreneurs to not cut corners and to focus on excellence in their business.
Sparks has had his fair share of disappointments, failed business attempts, and he also knows the mental focus required to be a successful entrepreneur.
Sparks helps entrepreneurs through his firm Timber Creek Capital, LP, but he also teaches that it’s important to give back through his Sparkey’s Kids. This organization is designed to give 1,000 laptops away to at-risk children across the country to encourage their love of learning.

Raj Fernando is one of the leading entrepreneurs in the United States who holds deep insight into the dynamics of U.S. financial industry and risks associated with financial trading. Perhaps, his intuitive leadership style also led him to devise various security policies for the Federal Government.
Unlike most well-known financial experts, Raj started his career as a volunteer at Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the largest commodity exchange in the world.

He was noted for his work in offering a safe environment for commodity traders by creating a transparent and competitive market. Actually, he was also a key speaker on the Commission’s panel for disruptive trading practices. As such, it is also notable that Raj had realized early in his trading career that financial institutions are as much concerned with generating revenue as securing financial transactions. In fact, the need for a sound financial system that can prevent illegal practices was in greater demand after the events of 2007 financial catastrophe, which included some of the largest US financial firms.
In 2015, Raj sold Chopper Trading to DRW Trading Group. Instead, he is currently focusing on activities at Scoutahead.

As the President and Co-founder of Highland Capital, James Dondero has been able to leverage his position and vast array of resources to provide much needed relief to The Dallas Foundation, a charity organization that focuses on improving and renovating communities in Northern Texas.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that James Dondero has given back to the community. In fact, he has a long and storied history of managing his acquired wealth and ensuring that it is re-invested back into local Texan communities. In Dondero’s mind, it’s important to give back to the community that played such a pivotal role in helping him to make his own living.
As a testament to both his and Highland Capital’s success, they recently released a statement indicating that they had a budget of more than $3 million specifically allotted for charitable donations. It was precisely because of this need that James Dondero and his associate, Mary Jalonick, decided to partner with The Dallas Foundation and form the Highland Dallas Foundation. Through this partnership, it is hoped that James Dondero and the rest of his company can more directly utilize their philanthropic energy and directly contribute to the communities that need their help the most.
In terms of past experiences, Dondero previously worked with The Dallas Zoo, The Perot Museum, and The Bush Presidential Library. Through all of these different endeavors, James Dondero developed a deep respect for those less fortunate than himself. In fact, many of the people that have worked with James in the past have noted just how irregular his brand of philanthropy is in this day and age. Generally, wealthy executives tend to focus on writing big checks that can get publicity rather than actually ensuring that their money goes to the people it’s meant for. With Dondero and his array of philanthropic works though, it’s clear that he’s more concerned with helping people than making a headline out of it.
With this new initiative, it looks as though James has no interest in pulling back on his philanthropic efforts and will likely continue to have a big impact on Texas in the future.

There investors all over the place who have made a pretty penny by mimicking the trading activities of George Soros. Many are wondering if his latest trade is something that they should imitate for their own interests. This trade has been somewhat controversial among the investing community. You can make an argue for it and against it using facts. The trade is even more interesting because of the fact that the managing director at the Quantum Fund rarely makes trades anymore.
Soros sold these holdings because he fears that the market is going to experience losses because of the backlash against the rising cost of prescription medication. Pharma companies do not have a good image in the public eye as of late because of these rising prices. Many people agree with George Soros and are following suit. There is a growing faction of people that think that maybe he jumped the gun a little early on this trade and are sticking to their guns.
Those that say he jumped to early on the sale are basing this opinion around the presidential election. Many of them expect Hillary Clinton to be elected. She has promised her constituents sweeping reform for health care companies. They think that these reforms will make the market bounce back in the coming years. The health care industry does have a way of making money in the long run.
Soros has made a legendary career out of betting against certain markets. Soros’ first famous trade of this sort came in 1992 when he bet big against the British Pound. When it crashed, his fund made over $1 Billion. He also made a lot of money when he made a similar bet against the housing market before it crashed in America late last decade.
There are good reasons for people’s opinion to go either way on this issue. The market could bounce back and show huge returns again, but George Soros does have a long reputation of being right when it comes to these sorts of things.
Soros has been largely retired over the last decade. He still runs the fund, but lets others handle the day to day operations. He has stopped into make a couple of big blockbuster trades. This is just the latest big trade he has made that specifically bets against a specific market sector.
