Every philanthropist’s story begins with struggles and oppression. George Soros is no different. Soros was born in Hungary and experienced a Nazi-occupied homeland during his childhood. As he got older, Hungary adopted Communism. Fed up with his home country, he moved to London for a few years before landing in the United States.

Once in the U.S., he got a job on Wall Street. He spent the next decades dominating the market, earning billions throughout his career. Now, George Soros is one of the most infamous hedge fund managers. His aggressive strategies once devalued the British pound, earning him infamy and $1 billion.

Despite the negativity surrounding his career, he’s actually a great man. He’s spent the last 30-plus years funding his Open Society Foundations. Open Society is one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the world thanks to Soros’s $18 billion donations. No one knew about his massive donations until NY Times covered his generosity in an article.

Obviously, he didn’t donate all $18 billion in a single transfer. Ever since he founded the organization, he’s been donating $800 or $900 million each year. According to Mr. Soros, he plans on donating an additional $2 billion within the next couple of years.

Even though Open Society isn’t the largest organization in the world, it is the most widespread. Open Society operates in more than 120 countries, helping with all sorts of issues. Lately, the organization’s been focused on the United States. A lot’s happened since Donald Trump became President Donald Trump.

There’s no argument that the number of hate incidents has risen since Trump’s victory. With no support from the government, innocent people are victimized every day just for not being red-blooded, white Christians. Open Society and Mr. Soros have made it their personal mission to prevent as much future violence as possible.

Currently, the U.S. is in the middle of a war with more victims than soldiers. Sadly, even the people just trying to help victims are being victimized. George Soros has gotten no different treatment than the rest of the “unwanted Americans”. Many right-wing supporters believe George Soros to be an evil man.

Because of his political affiliations, that’s not surprising. What is surprising are the reasons they hate him. They don’t like the fact that he supports Black Lives Matter and the Women’s March. This is all according to JPost.

A man who is well known in the areas of philanthropy and who is equally as good in business, Adam Milstein offers what he believes to be the best knowledge to pass on to others about giving back to the community and about business.

There are a number of people that Adam Milstein contributes to being one of the people who inspire him but the number one person is David Hager. David is his business partner and the one person who is always leading the way. He carries a good head on his shoulders and he knows how to use psychology. Using his brains to stay in the game is one way that David and Adam have been able to be successful.

In order to know what not to do, someone has to first fail at the task. For Adam Milstein, this came in the form of learning to not put all your eggs into one basket. While Adam was going to school, he was taking art and selling it to the Israel temples. He thought that this business would be such a success that he purchased a large amount of inventory right from the start. When this inventory did not sell as quickly as he thought it would, he learned that this would be his first mistake.

The one piece of information that he wants to pass onto others is, you have to be willing to do something over and over again if you want to be successful. You also must not rely on others to be able to succeed. You will have to be a piece of the solution if you expect it to work.

When Adam Milstein is asked about the one type of job was that he has had which he actually thought to be the worst one, he goes on to say that there was never one job that he has ever hated or been bad at. You have to enjoy working if you want to be good at it or if you want to be able to be successful in that field. If you can do this, you will find it easier to be in business.

Brazil is a federal state governed by three arms of government, the Executive, the Legislature, and the Judiciary. The legislature formulates and passes laws while the executive approves and implement those rules. Conversely, the judiciary is the custodian of law, meaning it is responsible for interpreting the law. Brazil anchors all its regulations in the Federal Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land. Brazil passed and promulgated its Federal Constitution 29 years ago. The mandate of operating the judiciary rests with the judges who are appointed from the most experienced attorneys in the land.

While Brazil anchors its laws in the supreme law of the land, the Federal Constitution, it is completed by several other legal documents. These documents include the Costume Defense Code, the Civil Code, the Commercial Code, and the Criminal Suit Code. Brazil applies all these codes in compliance with the supreme law of the land, the Federal Constitution. Brazil’s Federal Constitution subdivides the nation into small units of administration referred to as the Federal States. The constitution allows these states to formulate their laws, but they must abide by the provisions of the Federal Constitution.

Lawyers are the only legal experts recognized by the Brazilian legal practice. In an initiative geared towards strengthening Brazil’s legal practice, the government has embarked on building new law schools across the country.

The path to becoming a lawyer is long and difficult. Going through law school can take up to six years. Additionally, law schools teach only the basics of law. They do not teach students on the realities that they will face in the legal world.

Karl Heideck, a lawyer based in Philadelphia, has some pointers that should be useful for an aspiring lawyers who are in law school.

The first thing a student in law school should do is check the requirements needed for the states where one intends to practice law in.

Mike Baur recently gave insight into raising young entrepreneurs, and what parents need to know. Baur is co-founder of the Swiss Startup Factory, a Zurich-based think tank that takes novice entrepreneurs and shapes them and their innovative ideas into the next big thing.


According to Mike Baur, as a parent, you inspire entrepreneurship by boosting emotional skills that children will need, such as the convenience of taking risks, effective problem solving. “Emotional and social skills are very important, as well as a positive attitude towards failure,” says Baur. “This will help shape a child’s behavior.”


Here are three tips to boost your child’s entrepreneurial calling;


  1. Promote Effective Problem-solving


When a problem arises in the life of your child, brainstorm ideas to find a solution together. Assist kids with identifying problems, and lead them to consider several scenarios and solutions. They should learn to consider all sides of a situation, and then select the best option.


  1. Help Kids Learn From Failure


One essential tool for entrepreneurs is to try, try again. Influence your child to try and if they face failure, learn and try again. Baur says to remember that criticism is an opportunity to point out flaws and help your child brainstorm how to modify and resolve the issues. Children must learn how to handle criticism and find the positive message.


  1. Let Them Make Decisions


“Expose kids to what it feels like to make a decision and they will feel good about it,” says Baur. This will develop early independence, but limit their options, and as they grow give them more choices so they will become confident in major decision-making.


  1. Boost Their Sense of Mastery


Entrepreneurs take big risks, but feel comfortable doing so, and this does not happen overnight. Children need freedom to test their limits, and master their fears. When a child is faced with a risky situation, give as much help as needed, then slowly transition so they can gain independence.


  1. Challenge the Status Quo


We grow up learning to follow rules, unfortunately, this practice hinders entrepreneurship. Baur says, a great alternative is teaching kids to challenge the norm and seek what other innovative paths they could take and why.


Baur’s Zurich-based startup, the Swiss Startup Factory, mentors upcoming entrepreneurs on all matters to jump start their business. With a successful track record, Mike Baur prides himself on helping young innovative minds grow their businesses and see their dreams transform from ideas into successful ventures.
