The Champion Of Women In Southeast Asia, Malini Saba

Malini Saba has a big heart and a passion to help women in Southern Asia who may not have access to various social and healthcare services they need. Saba is a businesswomen with a high acumen in finance and entrepreneurship, and the two biggest companies she’s started are Saban and Stree. Malini has been a part of several successful US startups that have now become online powerhouses, and in her tireless work, she raised $10 million in 2004 to help the surviving victims of the major tsunami, and raised $1 million to help start a major South Asian heart disease research center for an El Camino, CA hospital.

 

Saba’s story has been one of endurance and perseverance. She was born to a relatively poor family that moved from Malaysia to Australia, and had very little to survive on. She was married at a young age and afforded the opportunity to travel to America with her husband, but times were still tough with little money and only being able to afford a small cramped apartment. But she determined to try something that few people of her status would have ever thought to do. She decided to become an investor, starting with just a little money.

 

 Malini Saba got advice and insights both from college professors and local financial experts, and was gradually able to build her savings up to start the major businesses she would become known for. She first founded Stree in 2001, in an effort to build a company that would afford impoverished Asian women the chance to get healthcare, legal help, and other benefits they would not be able to afford. In fact, former President Bill Clinton and Queen Noor of Jordan even attended and inaugurated the opening of this company.

 

Most of Saba’s main investments and startup companies have been in the oil and natural gas industries, but she also has invested in other well-known companies such as PayPal and Sycamore Networks. Saba is continuing to work today to bring more awareness and new startups to benefit the impoverished regions of Asia. She hopes her story of perseverance through hardship will be an inspiration to future generations of Asian women.

From Xenia to Doe, Music to Makeup, Fairy Tale Rock to Fashion: A Lime Crime

Doe Deere is a name that is often heard in households containing an avid beauty fan, but few know a good portion of knowledge about this little Russian spitfire. The majority of Deere’s traits have fueled her success in some way, so it is undoubtedly important to know what makes Doe Deere not only a great female entrepreneur, but worthy enough to be deemed the Queen of Unicorns. From her childhood makeup stories to her appreciation for being recognized for her victories, this is one interesting little lady.

A Russian Upbringing

Born in Russia as Xenia, the girl seemingly came into the world colorful. Her interest in fashion could be depicted at an early age, while her CEO skills were put to the test as she ran a temporary tattoo business at the age of thirteen. Her biggest passion was always music, though, and Deere conveyed that throughout the majority of her daily activities.

Of her most favorite memories from Russia to share include moments spent with friends experimenting with makeup. In fact, Deere clued Galore Magazine into a pretty outstanding secret: She was once horrible at makeup application! So horrible that it became a popular inside joke with her friends.

Packing Up and Moving Abroad

Deere moved to the United States in 1999 to pursue music. Getting her feet wet in New York City not only allowed her to perform with her rock band, Sky Salt, but also allowed her to meet her beloved husband of many years, Mark. As a way to make money, the girl with the cherubic face designed and sold dresses on eBay. This fashionable talent allowed her to begin crafting her makeup, which she began selling under her domain name, Lime Crime, once fans became apparent.

The launch of Lime Crime in 2008 forced Deere and Mark along with their three cats to move to Los Angeles where they currently happily reside.

Lime Crime’s Success

Of the soundest reason that Lime Crime is so successful as a makeup company is not necessarily because of the zany colors that you do not often come across, but because of the marketing skills demonstrated by their CEO. The company is mostly internet-based and, despite the challenges of that reality, it allows it to maintain its fan base more personally and in a way that grows their business by sustaining constant exposure.
