Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Lead the Crusade for Minority Rights

Ever since Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey started working on their own, they knew the ideas they had were the best ones they could use and that was something that helped them see how things were getting better.

Every time they worked on different journalism pieces or different things that would help the minorities see positive things, they felt they were doing everything right.

They also knew their ideas were among the best and that’s how they planned on helping other people out with the issues they faced. Even when things were difficult for both of the men, they never stopped working to do more.

By the time they started doing things the right way, they felt it was an important opportunity to keep giving back. They also felt things would continue getting better if they started a great foundation to help other people. The ideas they had were some of the best in the world and that’s how they worked on the opportunities they needed.

It helped that they always wanted to keep giving people positive experiences and they knew the positive options they had were among the best in the world. Even though they struggled with some issues, they felt it was important to keep giving the minorities the best chances possible.

Thanks to Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, minorities now have more chances than ever. They have the ability to choose different things and that gives them all the options they need. Without their help, minorities wouldn’t get the most positive experiences. Read more: Michael Lacey | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

They would struggle and they might not even have jobs. They would constantly have to go up against powers like Joe Arpaio and that made everything hard for them. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey wanted to change this and that’s what motivated them to keep doing everything the right way.

As long as they knew what they were doing, they weren’t afraid to keep giving back in different situations. They also knew everything would get better as long as they had the motivation to show others how everything worked.

When they started the Frontera Fund, it was their way of motivating other people the same way they had motivation on their own. They always knew they could try things that would help them see the positive aspects and the positive experiences they could take away from the world around them.

Since they tried so hard to help other people and they knew they had to do things the right way, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey always prepared for the positive opportunities that would come from everything they offered. They also showed people what they could do and how they could make things better for everyone.

It was their goal of helping and their goal to keep doing things right so they didn’t need to worry about what was going on. It was also something they felt motivated to do so they could keep giving other people the chances they deserved to see positive opportunities in their paths.

Dr. Villanueva Challenges Dental Stereotypes through Total Culture Change

A patient may appear comfortable visiting a dentist, but the doctor may want to complicate it. All that patients want is good services that are guaranteed with the presence of excellent equipment. However, dentists also need to perform non-clinical and administrative duties in addition to what they are trained for. This is when the MB2 Dental offers solutions to these professionals thus enabling them to focus on what matters, and that is maintaining professionalism in their dental services.

The focus of Dr. Villanueva is on creating a dental culture where the dentists-owned company focuses on support, autonomy, and personal growth. The business is meant to promote better relationships between dentists and makes them relate better professionally. This explains the importance of the recent retreat that the company has had. With the uniqueness of this business setup, it is almost impossible to find a dynamic structure resembling the MB2 anywhere in the world.

With the recent trip to Cancun, dentists from different places came together to exchange ideas at a professional and personal level. This attracted dentists from Alaska, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas, and New Mexico. The retreat was meant to help the dentists unwind and ease the pressure of taking requests from their patients back to the places where they practice.

Dr. Villanueva started this company on principle belief that doctors can help each other achieve their professional goals regardless of how complex they appear to be. For him, working as an independent dentist may work, but it will not be as effective as when the dentists collaborate in one way or another. He has a leadership program that encompasses over 78 affiliates and 533 employees who help in the six states that the company has been instrumental in helping dentists run their practice. With this, dentists can maintain a balance work- life relationship that makes them have a whole life.

One of the primary services that MB2 offers its clients is the relief from office work. The management of office operations is handled by the program leaving the dentists to focus on what they like doing best, and that is the dentistry bit. Some of the business operations for which expertise is needed and where MB2 comes in to help include billing, finance and accounting, accounting, collections and marketing. The MB2 also helps with credentialing, recruitment, and business development. With this, a dentist can concentrate on his practice without neglecting the crucial business aspect and thus success is guaranteed.https://www.glassdoor.com/Overview/Working-at-MB2-Dental-Solutions-EI_IE710847.11,31.htm

Whitney Wolfe: The Queen Of The Bees

When thinking of the female entrepreneur Whitney Wolfe, many may first think of her dating apps that she created: Tinder and Bumble. Realizing that some people want to look for friends on the internet as well (instead of strictly dates), Whitney Wolfe set out to expand Bumble, as she created Bumble BFF.

The expansion of Bumble BFF did not stop there, as Wolfe wanted to create a physical place that her matches could meet up at. Although not all of the Bumble app users are located in New York, many people will still get to experience the new beehive, brought to life by Whitney Wolfe herself.

The beehive is decorated and styled to look like a real-life, human version of the inside of a bee’s home. Dates, friendships, and anyone interested can kick back at the honeycomb pop-up, with the first location being in Soho, New York. We can anticipate for a successful turnout with the hopes of more beehives being created, because this yellow, bee colony hangout spot would be perfect for Instagram pictures, and even a new Bumble profile pic! What a creative aesthetic!

Designing a hangout spot isn’t the only creative skill that Whitney Wolfe has. She created handbags after graduating college, with a major in International Studies. However, one of her most creative twists was her creation of Bumble. Bumble was truly the first place that really encouraged the power of the woman in the field of dating. Traditionally, women were coached to wait for the man to show interest, and not to respond too quickly. Whitney Wolfe felt that these rules needed to be broken, and so did the females that quickly learned to love Bumble. On Bumble’s dating app, the female is actually required to initiate interest in their matches. There is even a time-limit, as matches disappear from the profile in 24 hours!
