10 Successful Women Share Their Best Life Advice

Success is something everyone wishes for but wanting it is an easy game –  to become successful, you have to make a difference. I believe serving others in a whole new manner is what we call success in business, Jim Rohn once said

“ Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Do not wish it were easier, wish you were better”

Nature has already told us, evolution comes with adaptability, if you are not flexible enough for handling the casualties coming your way, success will be a Gordian knot for you.

Success is not gender-biased:

Like men, women are also contributing an almost equal share in the society, gone are the days when people thought women incapable of handling office matters although women are apt in managing house chores you can not judge a lady by she being a homie.

Success is for hard workers, brave and resilient persons. Success and fortune do not show up for men only if someone is still assuming that women cannot be successful they must give it a second thought. It is the 21st century and our world is already experiencing the phenomenon of globalization, new opportunities are showing up every day both for men and women, more specifically for those who are ready to avail them.

It will be difficult to count the number of successful women and jotting down their life advices, but a few women and their precious advices can also work as a cherry on top for those who are already motivated and planning for start up their careers, before mentioning their advices here is a pro tip.

The Importance Of Oak Partners Letter To Theresa May

The world we are living in is so diverse, yet so complicated. For the past few decades, numerous changes and revolutions in the political system took place with a lot of countries switching from communism to capitalism, and organizations such as the UN, NATO and EU having a huge impact on the proclaimed sovereignty of countries all over the world. The main goal of this organizations was to keep the peace, yet it seems like the exact opposite is happening – big countries such as the USA, UK, France, Germany, Russia, and China are trying to make an economical and political impact in various regions. The free trade seems to be jeopardized, and the difference between first and third-world countries is now bigger than ever.

As most of you know, the UK unsatisfied with the monetary EU policies as well as the current state of the free trade decided to leave this organization, and that will finally happen in March 2019 (it is not an easy process, that is why it lasts for over two years). With this said, and the UK economies in need of huge reform, the Oakstone Partners group, decided to send an informative letter. Oakstone Partners is an organized group of people with political, economics, government, international trade, and law background they constantly engage in multiple projects concerning the state of the UK country. More about them you can see at the website www.oak-partners.com.

The Letter To Theresa May

Source:independent.co.uk

The Oakstone Partners group consists of five main figures: Right Honourable Baroness Verma of Leicester – Chairwoman in London; Sandeep Chadha – Co-founder and Head Advisory; ArvindSreedhar – Co-founder and Head of Capital Market; Pedro Rebelo De Sousa – Chairman in Lisbon; William Smithson – General Counsel in Lisbon. Sandeep Chadha, the co-founder, was the one signing the letter as a representative of the group.

Their letter to the Prime Minister Theresa May begins with a sentence about the previously organized conclave, at the Dorchester Hotel, on which multiple politicians and business leaders were invited. The goal of the meeting was to discuss the so-called new rules of the UK’s upcoming economy – a thing that concerns everyone. Sandeep then goes and lists a number of people that were invited including Baroness Sandip Verma; few members of the House of Lords (Lord Howard Flight; Lord Robert Smith – the Chair of British Business Bank; Lord JiteshGadhia); Mr. Phillip Bouverat – the Director of JCB; Mr. Andy Baldwin – EMEIA Area Managing Partner; etc. This group of panelists, businessman, and spokesman agreed that the global trade is under a great threat and that something should be done about that.

Then again, Sandeep suggests that he has no concern over if UK will continue calling for better free trade at the G20, but simply wants to discuss the best way to implement it. Along with that, they expressed the great concern over the happenings in Saudi Arabia (where basic human rights are constantly in danger), the ongoing blockade of Qatar, as well as the whole condition in the Middle East with the refugees still coming to Europe in waves of thousands. The thing is, the UK public, in general, is concerned as it has historically good relations with Qatar and Qatar does invest a lot in the UK, so this situation is not suitable at all. Thus, that is why Sandeep calls for a better reaction of the UK politicians about the ongoing tensions in the Middle East, and he asks for a diplomatic note to be sent to Saudi Arabia with the goal of swiftly ending the blockade. Also, the war in Yemen is a huge threat, as well as UK businessman, do have a lot of shares in that country as well. By looking at www.oak-partners.com and seeing the group’s ongoing projects, we can conclude how important it is for this Middle East problem to be solved.

Sandeep, and the Oakstone Partners, clearly want that the situation at the Middle East settles as soon as possible, as it suits both the UK businessman and the UK public in general.

Summary

At the Sandeep Chadha sincerely thanks the Prime Minister, with the hope of a swift reaction on her side. It is yet to be seen how will the UK act concerning this problem, and what will be the results of the upcoming G20 that is surely going to be the most important international summit in years.

Donald Trump And Theresa May Meeting

/

It seems that Trump is somehow managing to address any internal and foreign issue not only of the US but also pretty much of the entire world. In the last few days, he talked about Brexit, Boris Johnson as PM, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, EU, trade war and so many other things.

As we all know, Theresa May presented a Brexit plan, but soon after that, Mr. Trump stated how that would probably significantly impact the trade deal that the UK has with the US. It didn’t take long for POTUS to slightly alter the tune, or at least it seems like he is changing it, as he said how he and Mrs. May had “probably never developed a better relationship.” All that from his first UK visit as president.

On the other hand, according to May, Brexit gives the opportunity for both the US and the UK to create jobs for their people and she wishes for the two countries to sign a free trade deal. We could also hear Trump commenting plans for their long-time allies to exit the EU and on that occasion, he stated how it as “a much different deal than the people voted on,” and that he advised Mrs. May to do it completely differently.

Source:thescottishsun.co.uk

The news regarding this interview came while Trump’s were at a dinner with the British Prime Minister. Just to clear few things up, Sarah Sanders, White House spokeswoman commented that the president “likes and respects Prime Minister May very much.” She continued by saying that he “never said anything bad about her.”

POTUS stated how he advised Mrs. May on Brexit but that she didn’t agree and took a different approach. Just like always, he used this opportunity to say how EU wasn’t fair in their trade with the US and that they already have enough problems with them, implying that he does want to make a good deal with Brits.

According to political analysts, it seems that Trump’s interview suggests that it will be hard for the UK to get good deals with the US and at the same time to comply with the rules that are imposed by the EU. The main goal of Mrs. May is to be good with all sides but is that truly possible.

European Inability To Handle Donald Trump Could Cause Iran Crisis

//

The European officials showed us that they don’t know how to handle Donald Trump. While trying to get on his better side, they ended up on the side that is ruining the Iran deal.

The Iran deal is a multilateral agreement which guarantees that Iran won’t be able to acquire nuclear weapons. Trump and his office are on a path to destroy this deal, and if this happens, it won’t be just another funny Trump blunder. It will have a devastating impact on Iran, region, and European politics. If this occurs after years of negotiating this agreement, it will be a sign that European countries have a weak stance compared to the one America has, and that they have little to no influence in the Middle East.

Agreement that has been signed by Iran on one side and the United States, Russia, China, France, Great Britain, Germany, and the European Union, on the other, forbids this Middle East country to stockpile enriched uranium, and thus they are rendered unable to produce nuclear weapons. With this deal, Iran gave supervision of its nuclear facilities to foreign inspectors which would make sure that no bomb is manufactured secretly. In exchange for this, all of the countries that signed the agreement lifted international sanctions imposed on Iran.

China and Russia firmly support this agreement, not because they are naive but because the alternatives are far worse. If this deal collapses and Iran gets sanctions once again, the first thing they will try to do is to get themselves armed with nuclear weapons. They have an example of how much respect you can get from world powers if you arm yourself with atomic arsenal just like North Korea did. From a country on outskirts of society, they became feared just because Kim Jong Un developed nuclear facilities and ballistic missile capacity.

If sanctions are imposed on Iran once again, the only way that US could stop them from following NK example would be to launch an invasion. This absolutely isn’t necessary since the Iran deal was signed by both International Atomic Energy Agency and the U.S. government which confirmed that they are working in compliance with it. The ones that are breaking the agreement are the United States of America who failed to provide Iran with economic benefits that were promised. Donald Trump refuses to aid Iran economically without an explanation, while one of his advisors even said that he would tear it up on May 12th.

In response to these treats European leading countries and their leaders, all went to the US to try and persuade Trump to do the right thing. French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and British Prime Minister Theresa May, all had separate visits to the White House to try to persuade Trump to stick to the Iranian deal.

The right thing to do would be to threaten trump that EU will continue to respect the deal regardless of US stance. French president even suggested that a new deal could be struck if all parties agree. But, this is not necessary, the current deal is good enough, they should try to stay loyal one to another instead of trying to go in the direction Donald Trump wants.

Unfortunately, European countries showed weakness, and it now looks like Iran deal is about to be replaced or drastically changed. Asking Iran to modify some parts of the agreement wouldn’t be hard, but only if the United States respected their side of the contract. With them failing to comply, there’s no reason why would Iran want to recognize the deal other parties won’t. At this moment it would be hard to imagine that there isn’t something that Iran wants form the US. This is not a one-sided agreement, and Tehran will be sure that everyone understands this. If Trump indeed decides to tear it up, it could have a devastating effect on the entire region. The deal might have its flaws, but we hope that war is not a solution for this.

Merkel Consults with May and Macron, EU ready to Counter Trump’s Tariffs

/

According to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Europe is on the brink of a trade war with the United States. Washington must exempt the European Union from import tariffs which are imposed on the other countries in the world if the trade war is to be avoided. Merkel said that she has support from British Theresa May and French Emmanuel Macron.

The US imposed the aluminum and steel tariffs on China and Canada, and so far, Europe has been exempt from these. However, this is just a temporary measure, and it ends on Tuesday. Neither Macron nor Merkel managed to convince Donald Trump to extend the exemption. Merkel stated that Europe was “resolved to defend its interests within the multilateral trade framework.” She also added that all three leaders (May, Macron, and Merkel) “agreed that the US ought not to take any trade measures against the European Union.”

Merkel didn’t talk about specific steps which would be taken should the United States impose trade tariffs. The way China reacted was a major hit on the United States trade. They placed £70bn worth of its own tariffs on more than 120 American goods. Some of the products include rolled steel bars, wine, pork and scrap aluminum.

Before he met with Trump, Macron told Fox News: “You don’t make trade war with your ally. It’s too complicated if you make war against everybody. You make trade war against China, trade war against Europe, war in Syria, war against Iran. Come on, it doesn’t work. You need allies. We are an ally.”

No Pomp and Ceremony for Trump’s Visit to London

/

The carriage procession up the Mall and the official banquet at the Buckingham Palace are two staples of highest-ranking foreign dignitaries visits to the UK, an honor awarded to many of the previous American presidents. However, Mr. Trump will be exempt from this, during his “working visit” to London in July.

The long-awaited visit will finally take place, and President Trump will be welcomed to the Downing Street, where he will discuss matters with the UK Prime Minister Theresa May, but the meeting with the Queen and other members of the royal family is still not set.

President Trump was set to visit the UK and open a new billion-dollar embassy in January last year, but the overwhelming opposition from the British public caused him to cancel the trip. Even MPs joined the fray, declaring that they won’t let Trump address the Parliament. He claimed that he decided not to go in protest over President Obama selling of the old embassy “for peanuts” although the deal was concluded during the term of President Bush.

The visit was arranged during the Davos meeting, where to leaders met. President Trump will come to London after the NATO summit in Brussels, scheduled for mid-July.

Faced with looming Brexit, the UK is eager to maintain as close relationship with Washington as possible and conclude a favorable trade deal, and Mrs. May is willing to overlook many of the Trump’s antics in order to achieve that goal. Despite that, he managed to rattle her last year by retweeting far-right organization Britain First’s announcements. Mrs. May reacted quickly and sent a message that such behavior is unacceptable. Two leaders seemed to have mended their relationship since then, as both countries took part in strikes against Syria in early April. It remains to be seen whether they can remain on cordial terms, despite Mr. Trump’s rhetoric and America Frist strategy.

Donald Trump Claims Response To Syria Is Coming Fairly Soon

//

The U.S. President Donald Trump stated that America still hasn’t made action plan regarding the situation in Syria. But, the decision will be made “fairly soon.” Talking to gathered reporters in White House, Trump stated that his team is taking this situation “very, very seriously.” The chemical attacks in the town of Douma have put the entire world on notice.

Western powers, led by U.K. and U.S. are gearing up for a strike, but Russia who is an ally of Syria is against taking any rash actions. The envoy of Russia in UN, Vassily Nebenzia said that a war between Russia and America could not be excluded. Talking to reporters on Thursday he said: “The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war.”

France, as one of the countries who want to launch air strikes on Syria, claims to have collected evidence that there was a use of chemical weapons in Douma. According to French President, Emmanuel Macron, his country has solid “proof” of this.

The U.K. cabinet of ministers and its Prime Minister Theresa May stated that they are trying to “deter the further use of chemical weapons” and that they are trying to “keep working closely” with their U.S. allies.

According to sources from White House, Donald Trump also Talked with French President.

The UN Security Council has a scheduled meeting for later today to further discuss this crisis.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin is an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and according to Trump, he bore responsibility for “atrocity” that happened in rebel-held Douma.

Donald Trump is at the moment gathering U.S. allies to get the support for the much-needed attack on Syria. During talks with France and U.K., he also used the Twitter platform to threaten Syria and Russia with words that “missiles are coming.” He later denied making those threats and said that air strike could commence “very soon, or not so soon at all.”

But in a most recent statement to the reporters President of The United Stats Mr. Donald Trump said: We’re having a meeting today on Syria… “We have to make some further decisions. So they’ll be made fairly soon.”

Jim Mattis, US Secretary Of Defense also talked to the gathered press and made a statement about chemical attacks: “I believe there was a chemical attack and we are looking for the actual evidence.”

Stay tuned as we bring more news about the development of Syrian crisis.

Donald Trump Still Not Sure How Will U.S. Retaliate To Syria

//

British Prime Minister Theresa May called for an emergency meeting of the cabinet on Thursday, while the U.S. President remains undecided on the manner of retaliation.

Donald Trump still hasn’t decided how will the United States of America respond to chemical weapons attack conducted by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Damascus. The entire western world is gearing up to go against Syrian President.

Chief of Pentagon, Jim Mattis and the rest of Trump’s national security team had a meeting on Wednesday. Before that President Trump gave out a warning to Russia via Twitter: “You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

Head of the U.S. threatened to fire a barrage of missiles on Syria, but despite this, the U.S. is not sure in which way are they going to retaliate. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the spokeswoman for White House, told the gathered reporters on Wednesday, that the president is conducting conversations with U.S. allies.

When asked what military steps are they going to take she responded: “We’re maintaining that we have a number of options and all of those options are still on the table. Final decisions haven’t been made yet on that front.”

The officials of White House were clear that the decision will be made after consultations with closest allies – French President Emmanuel Macron, and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May. The U.K. Cabinet will meet on Thursday to decide which actions will be taken after Assad regime allegedly used chemical weapons against Syrian Rebels located in Douma. Despite Russian claims that Syrian president is not to be blamed for the attack, U.K. Officials doubt that he’s not responsible.

Talking to reporters Therese May said: “All the indications are that the Syrian regime was responsible. We will be working with our closest allies on how we can ensure that those who are responsible are held to account. The continued use of chemical weapons cannot go unchallenged.” This was yesterday, and same as the U.S., the U.K. still has to decide which steps are they going to take.

Interestingly, despite the claims that conflict is imminent, the price of oil remains high. At the same time, Turkey’s currency weakened. Turkey is one of the country’s that has troops stationed in Syria.

This is the second time in one year span that the U.S. needs to take action in Syria. In April of 2017, they conducted swift air strikes that destroyed single Syrian base. This time around the U.S. needs to hit harder.

Assad’s political advisers claim that no chemical weapon was used. They are adamant that regardless of world’s reaction they will, together with their allies Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah prevail as winners: “They will not win in anything they do. We will be the winners.”

In order to avoid breaking of international law, the U.S. will have to strike together with their allies. It is expected that joint force of U.S, France, U.K., and Saudi Arabia would help “to build a case for the humanitarian mandate.”

Donald Trump was clear in one of his Twitter addresses to Russia: “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart.’ ”

Chief of Staff at Pentagon together with CIA Director Mike Pompeo stated that the U.S. is “ready to provide military options if appropriate.” Air strikes could possibly damage one of Russia’s assets in Syria, and if this happens even by accident, it could create a more profound conflict between America and Russia.

Ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Norbert Roettgen said about the situation: “There must be a consistent Syria policy, that is the key thing. There is no real U.S. policy on Syria. Assad and Russia have been given a free hand militarily.”

The high tensions prompted Syrian government to clear airports and military positions in expectations of U.S. air strike. One of the Syrian officials from the Foreign Ministry said: “The Americans are sponsoring the lies of “terrorists” as a pretext to attack Syria.”

European air traffic agency, Eurocontrol, issued a warning to all air companies not to use the airspace above Syria due to the possibility of an air strike.

Talking about the matter Elena Suponina, a Mideast analyst at the Russian Institute of Strategic Studies said: “The risk of military conflict between Russia and the U.S. in Syria is very high. If Trump takes this step and Russian citizens are harmed, the reaction will be very harsh.”
