For a young Doe Deere anything colorful and mythical was what was used to keep her entertained. It comes as no surprise that she would combine that love with doing something creative. Always the creative type she started school at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, she sought a degree in illustration and fashion design. Even though this was fun she came to the decision fairly quickly that the way to go for her was to start her own fashion line. Taking what she had learned, grit, raw talent and determination “Lime Crime” was born. At its conception Lime Crime was a clothing label.
Deere reflects that she wasn’t really sure if the clothing line was were her future lay but, as she went forward with the business she found it difficult to find colors for her makeup that was as loud and jaw dropping as she needed them to be. Looking far and wide for products that would compliment the outfits she was designing. Unsuccessful in this pursuit she started to dabble in creating what she couldn’t find. A passion was realized!
When asked how did she come up with the name for her budding company Doe explained that fairy tale, mythical things and makeup have always been something she has loved. She also realized that in most fairy tale words rhymed. As she played with words trying to figure out a name for her new eBay account she liked the way “Lime Crime” sounded and she stuck with it.
Lime Crime is everything typical makeup isn’t, its imaginative, creative, cruelty free cosmetics that any and everyone can wear. Doe believes makeup shouldn’t only be used to hide imperfections but, it should be used to declare the wearers mood, festivity and what feels right at the moment.
At this point in her career Deere is learning everything she can about Generation Z. Generation Z is the young people who were born after 1997; they are the very first generation to grow up completely in the digital age. Doe feels like this group of millennials will change shopping and the internet as we know it. Being one of the first cosmetic brands to have eCommerce as an option to its customers Crime Lime wants to continue to reinvent itself while maintaining the fundamental truth of staying true to yourself. The core values of Lime Crime are to be kind, generous, cruelty free and free spirited.
When building anything great it is necessary to overcome obstacles. Doe and Lime Crime have indeed overcome misconception, hardships, hurtles and setbacks. They were able to proceed and triumph over each challenge because Doe listens. She considers herself a passionate listener; being able to take criticism and compliments from friend, employees and foes alike. With such a positive attitude and a determination to continue to succeed. The sky is the limit and the bottom of the rainbow holds the pot of gold for Doe Deere and Lime Crime.

While there are malls everywhere, some of the more successful malls are the large ones. For one thing, while it is rather fun to visit any mall, it is almost an event to go to a huge mall. For one thing, the larger malls are where people will find more of the unique stores. Smaller and average sized malls are just going to have the usual stores with a possibility of one unique store. At the same time, where the larger malls have full stores, some of the locations at the smaller malls tend to be rather reduced versions of the full store.
Roberto Santiago has made sure that his mall, Manaira Shopping is a large mall that has the full versions of stores. Therefore, people will find everything they are looking for in the store they want. They don’t have to deal with the frustration of only seeing reduced sections. Manaira Shopping, like other malls, features full sections of the store. This is one of the appeals of the large malls. Similar things can be said for the food court. They don’t just have regular fast food joints. The mall actually has more than one area for eating. While one food court has mostly fast food, the other areas actually has full service restaurants.
One thing that customers will say about Manaira Shopping is that it is not just a mall, it is an experience. For people who want to go shopping, Manaira Shopping provides an unforgettable experience. Also, people who go there for entertainment will be overwhelmed with the options that this mall has that even a lot of the bigger malls don’t have. For one thing, they don’t just stop at the movie theaters like other malls do. They go above and beyond to provide features like concert halls and arcade. However, even their theaters surpass other theaters with recliners and full meals being offered to go along with the film. One thing about Manaira Shopping is that it is not just the size, it is the variety of shops that are being offered to the visiting customers.

One of the nation’s highest paid executives is Anthony Petrello, the leader of oil drilling contractor Nabors Industries. With the constant demand for oil despite it’s fluctuating value, and the fairly steady stock values for Nabors shareholders, it’s no wonder Petrello is compensated pretty well for his leadership.
As of the last year his base salary was $1.58 million a year, but he also has earned $7.7 million in bonuses, $16.86 million in stocks and an additional $1.34 million in miscellaneous compensations making his total value at $27.5 million. As CEO and Chairman of Nabors, Petrello manages the strategic planning and technological initiatives of the company from hybrid drilling equipment to proprietary software for operations.
Petrello was hired at Nabors by former CEO Eugene Iseberg due to his knowledge of corporate law and ability to solve problems. The problem solving skills of Petrello actually started when Anthony Petrello was a young man in middle school. His passion was mathematics and it wasn’t uncommon for him to be working on highly complex problems in his free time. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the field at Yale, but then went to Harvard law school to get his J.D. His practice in corporate law lasted for 13 years at Baker & McKenzie including 6 years as Managing Partner at the law firm. During this time he specialized in tax laws, employment issues and business structuring.
Anthony Petrello is married to Cynthia Petrello and they are parents to a young girl named Carena who has cerebral palsy. One of the hardest things for the Petrellos was not being able to provide healing treatment for Carena and being told no cure existed for her condition. But they then joined a new endeavor to join the medical world in researching cures for neurological diseases. The Texas Children’s Hospital has benefited from a $7 million gift from the Petrellos to the Dan & Jan Duncan Neurological Institute and the Petrellos hope the business world will join them in recognizing how important the work at the institute is.
