Victoria Doramus: From Success to Homelessness and Back Again

Some people work a menial job and live in poverty before achieving success in their chosen career. The biography of Digital and Media Print Professional Victoria Doramus is a mirror image of that scenario.

At the height of her career, Victoria served as West Coast Director for the brand strategy, generational research and trend forecasting firm Trenda. During that time Victoria Doramus created the Trenda Files. The Trenda Files are a reference guide that helps companies target specific demographics. Fortune 500 companies have used the Trenda Files.

Drug addiction and alcoholism undid all that Victoria Dormus had accomplished. Adderall and cocaine were her drugs of choice. Victoria penned a currently unpublished autobiography, “Adderall: A Love Story”. Between 2011 and 2016 Victoria had gone into rehab twice. Between the two facilities, she had invested 115 days on failed attempts to get sober.

Despite her best efforts, Victoria couldn’t stay sober. She found herself in NYC penniless, homeless, and estranged from friends and family. A desperate attempt to support her habit led to Victoria Doramus being arrested. That arrest marked a turning point in her attempt to get sober.

Last year, Victoria entered the Burning Tree rehab center. Burning Tree’s rigorous program of prayer, meditation, introspection, group meetings, and mandatory chores helped her to get and stay clean. After Burning Tree, she moved into a sober living house. The house rules required that residents work at least 30 hours a week. Victoria found a job waiting tables.

The struggle to overcome addiction imbued Victoria Doramus with empathy that led to philanthropy. Currently, Victoria is developing plans to open her own sober living home. In the meantime, she supports a variety of charitable causes including the Amy Winehouse Foundation. AWF attempts to prevent addiction through education.

The non-profit Best Friends Animal Society provides an alternative to euthanizing abandoned animals. Best Friends takes animals from kill shelters and finds them homes or allows them to live out their lives at the BFAS sanctuary. Internationally, Room to Read works in impoverished nations. Room’s mission is to promote literacy and to champion equal education for girls.

Jim Toner Real Estate Entrepreneur and Positive Thinker

Jim Toner is a real estate investor and an entrepreneur. According to him this is the time for people to get into the real estate market. The potential is there to make a lot of income. The market itself was not bad over the past several years. Unfortunately many people lost their homes and lost money in general. Jim Toner says that all of this was really a case of people making bad business decisions and the resulting trouble was an accumulated effect of all of this. The market is recovering and now is the time to try out the real estate market. If one is prepared and makes the right financial decisions the potential is there for wealth accumulation.

Attitude is very important in life. If one has a defeatist attitude then this will hurt one but if one can keep pushing forward and not let anything get in the way of their success then chances are that in this market one could come out a winner. Jim Toner knows how fear and indecision can defeat a person and his motto is don’t let fear get in the way but instead conquer it and put it in it’s place.

The fact that real estate prices are relatively low at the present time makes this current market good for buyers. Combine this with associating with positive thinking individuals and one will be on their way to making good money in the real estate market. One must also not neglect themselves. According to Jim Toner one must concentrate on their physical well being along with their spiritual,mental and emotional fitness. All of this must come together to make one a success in life.

Another important part of success is time management. Jim likes to exercise in the morning and he likes to read literature that keeps him on the positive side of things. In this way he can start his day on a positive note. After this he begins his workday. Many people like to work for other people because of the financial security involved. Is it really as secure as one may think? One cannot really control their financial life by working for someone else. Working for one’s self is a much better option. It gives one much more control over their finances. According to Jim Toner becoming an entrepreneur has always been a challenge but in today’s economy it is the right way to go. The opportunities are out there. One can make their own hours. One can work as much or as little as they want. This is important because it is important to relax with family and friends and just have a good laugh from time to time. Watch this vimeo documentary featuring Jim Toner.

The Philanthropy Of Stream Energy

With the onset of the internet, and all it has brought us, the word “stream” has taken on so much more meaning that a babbling brook leading to a river. Even when we hear it now, the connotation is that progress is being made, in some way. Either Dallas firm “Stream Energy” wanted to connect thoughts of their company name to progress and innovation, or it was just the nature of the way they directly sell energy that the name was arrived at. Either way, the very name of the company does them a lot of good.

The company is not squandering success, however, as there is altruism in the way Stream Energy uses their philanthropy for success. Recently Hurricane Harvey, in August of 2017, decimated parts of Texas, triggering paralyzing floods in Houston and the surrounding areas. The damage caused from this hurricane was over $100 million, and a lot of that represented individuals suffering loss of their homes, cars and other possessions. Insurance companies were not exactly fast to respond either, so it is nice that local companies, who are doing well, rushed in to help.

Instead of ignoring the plight of their fellow Texans, Stream Energy was galvanized by what happened and used it as a vehicle to be proactive. They used company money for the betterment of others suffering catastrophic loss. It is not often, however, that we hear of a company really giving at a time when the need is so acute, and unfortunately it is actually somewhat rare. Stream Energy took on the suffering of those affected by the hurricane, helping to alleviate some of the byproducts of that awful disaster.

In addition to direct help, they also actually took to their website promising those affected that they would not be held responsible for any late fees, nor should they be concerned with due dates on their bills. In fact, Stream Energy is so committed to helping others at times of need, they created a branch of the company, Stream Cares, to deal exclusively with supporting philanthropic efforts. There was not a lot of fanfare regarding creating this arm of the company, but rather classically and quietly, they set out to make this happen, and they did.

Adam Milstein Visited Europe’s Concentration Camps

Gila and Adam Milstein went to the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland with 100 American scholars and philanthropists to learn more about the Holocaust. They learned about the inhumane conditions that Jews and Gypsies had to suffer in. They visited mass graves in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland, where Nazi firing squads killed thousands of people. They went to the Rumbula Forest Memorial to commemorate the 2.4 million Jews killed by neighbors in the hidden Holocaust.

Many are unaware that the anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany could happen in America. The “Never Again” slogan should become a mindset and an action plan. The Holocaust was the result of discrimination, intimidation, and systemic racism. Europe had anti-Semitism for a long time. The Nazis used the hatred to marginalize the Jewish people and conduct history’s largest genocide. Over 400 decrees and regulations boycotted, delegitimize, and sanctioned Jews’ lives. The dehumanization led the public to agree with the final solution.

Adam Milstein says anti-Semitism has increased in America and Europe among the radical left, the radical right, and the radical Muslims. Jeremy Corbyn, with the help of the radical leftists and radical Islamists, has ignored and espoused anti-Semitism. Radical right figures in Estonia, Germany, Italy, Poland, and other places have denied the Holocaust. European officials placed on the blame on Germany, without placing any on their countries’ leaders who collaborated with them. Poland recently outlawed the use of the phrase “Polish death camps.” One of Germany’s parliament parties claimed the Holocaust was a “small spec of bird poop” compared to their long glorious history.

Adam Milstein says that when people don’t fight against anti-Semitism, they help it become mainstream. World powers did nothing to help the Jews during World War II. Jews should use the power they have now to fight back, before they lose it. Support Israel as a safe haven in times of crisis. The country accepted survivors of the Holocaust and those that were threatened by various governments.

Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel accompanied Gila and Adam Milstein to Auschwitz. The past tragedies should be turned into future lessons.

Gottlieb and Weisbrod Colleagues Once Again

Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod are once again collaboration and making plans for the future, after nearly two decades of running separate funds. The two have worked in the past at Merlin BioMed Group, and are once again combining their deep healthcare investment experiences under one roof.

 Mr.Weisbroad’s academic accomplishments includes an MBA in Finance earned from Columbia University, as well as an impressive track record in healthcare and biotechnology investment. In 1998, Weisbrod with the aid of the knowledge and experience gained, co-founded the investment management company Merlin, which focused on investment in the healthcare sector.

The team that worked under Weisbrod’s supervision and helped with the growth of Merlin included Jacob Gottlieb, who acted as a manager in the year 2000. He, alongside other portfolio managers helped the company gain major clients, including pension funds and wealthy individuals, and was a key player in making Merlin a success, which resulted in returns of over 100% in both 1999 and 2000, before closing down in 2007.

In the years that followed, Weisbroad created a firm named Iguana Healthcare Partners, with a similar investment strategy as Merlin, while Gottlieb created Visium Asset Management with an initial capital of $300 million, a firm that grew and became a hedge fund worth $8 billion. Despite its massive success Visium came under fire in 2016 when three of its executives have been accused of insider trading, and further charges were brought, against the company’s former CFO and against the company itself. Gottlieb’s record remains clean however, as he has never himself been charged, and is currently working on winding down the company.

Despite the problems that Visium is facing and the work needed to wind down the company, Gottlieb is already carefully planning his next move within his new venture, Altium Capital. Similar to his former company, Altium Capital is also a hedge fund. With this being a new beginning for Gottlieb, the firm’s first investment was a stake in Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc, as the field of health-care investment is where Gottlieb proved to be very successful in the past. Oramed was founded in 2006, and their most revolutionary product waiting approval is an insulin capsule, which can prove to be a significant change in the lives of people that have diabetes, as it replaces the need of an injection.

The two former colleagues, Weisbrod and Gottlieb, successful financial entrepreneurs, can provide the industry with exiting changes for healthcare investment opportunities.
