Working To Support Oneself and Help Others Like Betsy DeVos

One thing that has a huge influence over how far one is going to go in her life is her motivation. If one is only working for herself, then she is probably going to only get so much work done compared to someone who is motivated to help others and give back to her community. Betsy DeVos is one of those people that have decided that she wants to give back to her community. However, her way of helping goes deeper than other forms of help. While people do try to get their feet wet with some form of philanthropy, Betsy makes sure that she is involved in something that is going to make a huge difference in the lives of people.

Betsy thought about what she was passionate about. She thought about what she can do for the community in order to build it. This is when she has decided that the best way she could help her community is by focusing on the school systems. One thing that she has seen is that the educational system is beginning to lose its usefulness. She has seen that the current system at the time was not as effective as it may have once been. Therefore, she has looked into ways to bring forth options that will make sure that children are getting the education they need.

Betsy DeVos has then decided to get into office so that she could influence the laws so that she can bring forth funding for schools. After all, she wants children to be able to go to safer schools. Not only do children get to learn in safer environments, parents can rest better knowing that their children are safe and presented with the best opportunities to change their world.

One thing about children from poor communities making a life for themselves is that it is inspiring. Visit dbdvfoundation.org to know more about their foundation.

Musician Turned Girl Boss: Doe Deere

Russian native, Doe Deere, is the sparkling creator of the well-known cosmetic brand, Lime Crime. Deere moved to New York when she was 17 years old and stayed there until 2012. When Deere, known as the “Queen of Unicorns“, moved to New York she pursued her dream of working as a musician. While performing in a band in New York she met her husband, and the two learned to function as great teammates. She also learned valuable lessons for running a business during this time. Doe attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, as she also enjoys fashion. She enjoyed being creative with her music and clothing, but realized there wasn’t much available on the market for her when it came to makeup. It seemed to her that everyone was into the “less is more” look, while she wanted to experiment with bright colors. And so, in 2008, Doe Deere began making her own cosmetics, and Lime Crime was born. It became successful when she realized that there were many other girls out there, like her, who were drawn to bright and daring lipstick colors. Today, the Queen of Unicorns encourages girls to follow their hearts. While it may sound cliche, she hopes that everyone will do the things they love and not settle for a life of anything less. Even if you feel alone, you aren’t. There are people out there feeling the same things you are, and it’s okay to speak up for what is in your heart. If you look at the Lime Crime website you’ll see this line, “Always rebelling, never boring, Lime Crime’s here to shake things up. If we aren’t obsessed with it, we just won’t make it!” And that pretty much sums up Doe. She is a fiery trendsetter, following the things that make her happy. To top it all off, Lime Crime is vegan and cruelty free so you don’t have to feel guilty about your purchase! The message of Lime Crime is simple: be yourself, follow your dreams, and don’t be afraid to stand out. Doe currently resides in sunny Los Angeles and continues to make cosmetics for free spirits like her.
