Move Over Pudding: The Proof Is In The Cream



Oil and water don't mix, but that's certainly not the case when it involves oil and butter.


These two ingredients are the secret sauce in making La' Shea Essentials feel naturally luxurious.  Company founder, Folasade Ayegbusi, has launched this new natural product --  which consists of 100% Organic Argan Oil and 100% Pure African Shea Butter.   "I was a lost consumer searching for a product that could reduce unwanted dark black spots on my legs," she says.  Unfortunately she was unsuccessful in finding a natural-based cream or lotion that could alleviate this problem.

The issue motivated her to do some extensive research into the market, which ultimately led to the creation of La'Shea Essentials.  "I wanted a top quality fabulous feeling product," Ayegbusi says.  "Sure enough, that's what I came up with."  

Argan oil plays a vital role in making this product a big hit for women.  "It can be used as a full body moisturizer and can help reduce stretch marks," Ayegbusi says.  "The oil is also extremely unique due to its nutrients, which make women's faces feel smoother, clearer, and more radiant."  It adds moisture and shine to dry hair, as well as helps to reduce frizzy ends.   The oil is also beneficial to hands and feet, especially on cuticles and nails prone to cracking and peeling.

Jaasta Announces Launch of Crowdfunding Campaign to Bring Breakthrough E Ink Keyboard and Zero Sound Mouse to Market



The time has come for a superior keyboard and mouse, two devices that are a part of a great many computer user's day to day lives. Jaasta is on the verge of this breakthrough announcing their crowdfunding campaign to bring both an incredibly functional E Ink Keyboard along with the world's first Zero Sound Mouse to market.

California, USA, December 15, 2014. The idea of a dynamic E Ink Keyboard is one that moves a great many people to the edge of their seat with excitement. The ability to change keys based on the software being used, clearly breaks through a wall set by conventional keyboards, and could speed up both productivity and learning speed to levels not previously approachable, in the opinion of many experts. Forward thinking company Jaasta, in recent exciting news, announced the launch of a crowdfunding campaign to bring their own Jaasta Wireless E Ink Keyboard along with the world's first Wireless Zero Sound Mouse to market. The anticipation surrounding the new project is incredibly high.


“The Jaasta E Ink Keyboard and Zero Sound Mouse will change the way users think of these two everyday accessories,” commented a spokesperson from the company. “Seeing our E Ink Keyboard is believing. Once a person uses one they will likely never want to return to using an old-style keyboard ever again.”


The specs announced for the keyboard, which changes its display based on the active application, include: a Large (3.5-inch) interchangeable touch-pad with multi-touch navigation for easier web browsing, easy indoor and outdoor readability and large characters on very quiet keys. Media hot keys are integrated - mute, play, volume up or down - for controlling wireless connected TV and laptops from up to 33 feet. The battery life even lasts a full twelve months.


The Jaasta Zero Sound Mouse, is the first zero mouse entering the market. It comes complete with an internal 8gb memory and a SuperSpeed usb input port for a user's flash drive, making it the perfect companion for the company's E Ink Keyboard.

The crowdfunding campaign has garnered a great deal of excitement.


Jennifer B., a tech blogger from Boston, recently said, “Jaasta is doing really interesting things and I can't wait to see their E Ink Keyboard and Zero Sound Mouse. This is one campaign to get behind for sure! Totally recommended.”

Green noted, “We’re humbled by the success and growth we’ve enjoyed over the past 10 years and are grateful for the support of our clients and employees who have made it all possible. I’m proud to say that each of our attorneys approaches the attorney-client relationship as a partnership of sorts, with each of them committed to the ethical handling of our clients’ legal matters. We look forward to continued growth in the coming years, while remaining true to the principles we value – those of honesty, dedication and integrity.”

Announcing The Kidney Cancer Bills Funding Campaign for the Wiedow Family



San Francisco, CA – December 11, 2014 – Wendy Wiedow is a wife and the mother of a precious and brave little 9 year old girl named Tracy. Four years ago, her family were all together living in their own home in West Virginia, celebrating Christmas 2010 with her husband Walter and their two girls Cindy age 10 and Tracy then age 6.

Those were the innocent and happy days of December 2010. A dream world so far away now....but little did we know then that just one year later Walter would have lost his job as a coal mining shuttle car operator we would lose our home to foreclosure and the worse nightmare of all, we would lose our little girl Cindy to kidney cancer.

After Walter lost his job, the Wiedows tried desperately to keep their home for their little girls sake, but in the end with very little income coming in they just could not make even the lowest of mortgage payments. So they took their belongings from the house and just let it go into foreclosure. They moved into a small two bedroom apartment in a high crime neighborhood an hour’s drive from their home.

One day on a Sunday in late June after church, Cindy came out of the bathroom and she was not smiling
with her drawing book as she would normally do, but just walked slowly over to her mom in the kitchen and said "Mom...my water-(pee) is red". Well, the thinking at the time was she has a urinary infection (girls get them at her age). They took Cindy to the doctor first thing Monday morning, and yes she did have a urinary infection, but the doctor said just to make sure, he would send out all of Cindy's test samples to have them analyzed.

A few days later the doctor called and he wanted them to see him at his office. He told them Cindy has cancer and she must go to the hospital right away for further tests. Those further tests would
reveal Cindy had Wilms Tumor (Kidney Cancer). After months of out-of state cancer treatments, their beautiful loving daughter and sister Cindy died at home with her family around her, she was 10 years old.

After Cindy died, the Wiedows decided to pick up and move out west. One day while driving south of Las Vegas Nevada, they stopped by a medical clinic to get Tracy a complete physical. The nurse there told them that Tracy has a slight discoloration in her urine and were told once that Tracy may have a genetic predisposition kidney cancer. “Oh no!” Wendy said…”Not our only surviving
daughter Tracy!”

They did not want to wait this time like her sister Cindy did. So they got a map to find the nearest hospital and had Tracy checked-in. The test results came back and Tracy did have Wilms Tumor (Kidney Cancer) but it was in the very early stages. They stayed near the hospital for 6 months while Tracy got surgery/radiation/chemotherapy. One day the doctor told them Tracy is now cancer free, and Wendy fainted into Walter's arms. The Wiedows can live again!

They now owe medical, housing food and travel expenses that have ballooned to a mind boggling total of $114,387.59 They are now poorer than they have ever been in their lives but they are happy because we have "Our Faith in The Lord" and knowing our precious little Tracy is now Cancer Free!

Endeavour Magazine interviews Luigi Wewege, CEO of Vivier & Co on the outlook of Boutique Financial Services



Endeavour Magazine interviews Luigi Wewege, CEO of Vivier & Co on the outlook of Boutique Financial Services

Auckland, New Zealand
The Global Credit Crunch had relatively little effect on the New Zealand banking sector. In part, this fortunate stability was a result of the health of the country’s financial market and lending sector, which always faced much sterner regulation and control than many other countries during the boom years between 2002 and 2007.  For such reasons, since the 1990s, New Zealand has been the destination of choice for global investors, who have been well rewarded for their faith. Particularly, those from countries such as Japan and China, who flocked to place their household savings in New Zealand, have since received interest rates well above their domestic offerings. 

“This has seen a global uptake in investors who want to enjoy the attractive rates offered from New Zealand, without exposing themselves to exchange rate risk,” says Luigi Wewege, CEO of Vivier & Co, one of New Zealand’s most prominent financial companies. 

Founded in 2001, the company was heavily focussed on domestic assets and New Zealand clients. “More recently,” Luigi tell us, “the management team has found a way to obtain secure, higher yielding investments. It therefore decided to take advantage of the company’s good reputation and efficient cost base to offer our services worldwide. These include above average deposit rates, coupled with security and lasting stability.”

This boutique financial institution now services the unique needs of an international clientele. While headquartered in Auckland New Zealand, Vivier Group enjoys a presence on virtually every continent with offices in Johannesburg, Lima, Orlando, Dublin, London, Paris, Munich, Dubai and Hong Kong, “We also have many clients outside these main hub cities,” Luigi is quick to point out.

He continues to note that, as a Financial Service Provider, Vivier & Co’s business is relatively straight forward. Put simply, they offer a higher interest rate on savings - in any major currency - than available almost anywhere else. The company also maintains a Bankers Blanket Bond with Standard and Poor's A+ rated insurers, providing a NZD2,000,000 indemnity on any one claim/loss in the aggregate.  This is a simple and effective product that satisfies a global problem for investors seeking a higher yield but with complementary safety.  Additionally, they offer bank accounts to companies and individuals who wish to do business outside their country but face difficulties opening an account abroad.

“As regards to distribution, we have an international advisory board, with members based around the world,” he says. “And we offer local customer service directly through teams responsible for each major language and/or jurisdiction.”

While New Zealand may have dodged the worst of the global credit crunch, institutions like Vivier & Co still face their share of hurdles. The underdevelopment of a buoyant financial service sector in multiple locations is one of them, “Outside of highly developed hubs such as Singapore and London it is difficult for people to gain access to boutique financial services,” Luigi points out. 

The other hurdle is a lack of consumer awareness about the meaning of boutique financial services, which means that Vivier staff often face the challenge of explaining the advantages to clients.  But when it comes to personal service, they are very well looked after.

The staff working at Vivier & Co benefit from a companywide devotion to their development. “We are offering products that are not available via the usual high street banks,” Luigi says, “so it demands a more personal level of customer contact, in particular when dealing with clients that look for tailored solutions going beyond the scope of traditional services.”

 “A Boutique Financial Institution must attract and retain staff who are incentivised to deliver these investment solutions efficiently and effectively,” he adds. “Smaller than a traditional bank, we can be more flexible and focused with our staff as well as with our clients.”

Development includes a full scope of industry training, as the financial regulators in New Zealand set strict rules in relation to anti-money laundering and ‘knowing your client’.  All of Vivier & Co’s staff are well versed in these rules and apply them in their day to day work. Examinations are also available for RFAs and AFAs, Registered Financial Advisers. The company also has to belong to a dispute resolution scheme. This ensures clients can have confidence when they deal with a financial adviser: that they are professional and meet appropriate standards of competence, care and diligence. Training takes the form of attendance at seminars on compliance and related matters.

Luigi points out some of the specific customer services for which Vivier & Co are renowned: “We offer above average returns along with far higher security than normally available. Interest can be paid gross without any deduction of tax,” he says. “We have also limited the amount of costs for transfers on inward and outward deposits, minimalized account charges and removed market risk volatility.”

And, importantly, Vivier offers a more personalised customer contact that can be found almost anywhere else. This particular aspect of the company, their person-to-person approach, is one of the keystones to its position in the industry. Luigi explains that after-sales service and customer commitment are critical elements of the business, “We cannot and do not take our clients for granted, as happens with many high street institutions,” he says. “We listen to each client’s particular needs and develop a deep understanding of his or her financial goals.”  

In this way, they can work together to make the best financial decisions, something that is hard to achieve with a retail bank. It’s yet another reason why Vivier & Co is so highly respected and enjoys relationships with such a great number of satisfied customers who not only return, but also spread the word: “A positive recommendation from a client is worth its weight in gold,” he adds.

Of course, Vivier & Co is not the only financial operation offering boutique services but has found the best solution to outplaying the competition is by offering far higher quality. Thusly, they continue to make highly selective loans, secured directly or indirectly against real estate located in the UK and Ireland, both of which are stable members of the European Union, while at the same time, ensuring costs are contained by providing straightforward products and keeping a close eye on overheads.  

“This winning combination allows us to continue offering above-average interest rates and thus staying ahead of the other players in the market place,” is the company’s mission statement.
With 2014 almost at an end, Luigi is looking at the next year with anticipation and excitement, as there are a number of new developments on the horizon.

Earlier in 2014, after several months of negotiations, the purchase was completed of Vivier Mortgages Limited, a Dublin based home loan company. This will enter them into the mortgage industry, as well as offer a chance to take part in the fast moving Irish economy. Similarly, the Vivier Property division has recently established an association with first rate, experienced developers in the United Kingdom. This will allow the group to invest in a wide range of residential real estate that will expand the asset side of the balance sheet and offer even more security to their clients. Finally, the Vivier Technology division has entered the scene as a crucial part of the offering, “A short while ago, the company mandated a top design firm to rewrite the entire website.” Luigi explains, “At the same time, we have signed up with a new debit card organisation, affiliated with VISA and MasterCard. This will allow us to simplify account opening procedures and online banking as well as to improve data protection and functionality from anywhere in the world.”

Each of these projects has demanded significant human resources, Luigi explains, “The group has called on experts and specialists worldwide to accomplish these goals, which have required considerable capital.”

This capital was sourced by the shareholders and demonstrates the level of confidence they have in the company’s long term goals, “Quite rightly they trust that this investment will be vindicated by stable expansion of the client base, growth of the balance sheet and ultimately the success of the group as a whole.” Luigi concludes.
