Doe Deere: Fashion Designer Turned Successful Makeup Entrepreneur

Inspirery is a platform that conducts exclusive interviews with entrepreneurs and celebrity businessmen. Recently, Inspirery sat down for a talk with Lime Crime Cosmetic’s founder and CEO, Doe Deere.

 

Doe Deere is described as the “Unicorn Queen” for her colorful choices in clothing and hair dye and makeup. She was born in Russia but grew up in New York City, this is where she studied fashion design. During her time spent studying fashion design, she would gather the knowledge required to start her own company, even if it wasn’t in the industry she originally intended.

 

The interview started off with the obvious question when the interviewer asked her how she got started in the business. “I began with designing and making my own clothing designs,” Deere replied. “I got the idea to create my own makeup to complement my outfits when I modeled them for the website…I couldn’t find the exact bright colors I wanted, [so] I decided to start making them.

 

Doe Deere says she has always had two passions in life. One of them is makeup and the other is fairy tales. “I decided to combine my two loves to make an imaginative…brand that’s fun for everyone to wear.”

 

The interviewer pressed Deere for her methods of money making next and she says that her magically inspiring and cruelty free cosmetics are available online and an in retail stores all across the United States. Lime Crime’s makeup is even available in some international markets.

 

It didn’t take Deere very long to start turning a profit, she says that she first began selling her clothing independently on eBay in 2004 and in less than a year she was selling her products at a steady-pace. It was eBay where she created her very first online market place. Four years later her makeup store officially launched as a collection of eye shadow, several types of blush, glitter, primers and fine crushes that started at only 12 dollars. Learn more: https://www.limecrime.com/about/

 

Doe Deere took an unconventional path of marketing her products to consumers. She made make up tutorials online, using word of mouth and clicks to make the public knowledgeable of her brand.

 

It was with her makeup tutorial filled blog, which also hosted contests and challenges for its readers, that she made her first sale. Doe Deere says her main marketing strategy now is to always listen to feedback and to give people what they want. “People will tell you what they want,” she began. “So listen to what they’re saying and respond appropriately in social media and in your advertising campaigns.”

 

The interviewer closed out the session by asking Doe Deere exactly where she got the unique name for her brand and she reminded the interviewer that she loves fairy tales. “[Fairy tales] will rhyme just because,” she said. “I loved the way lime crime sounded…and my brand always enjoys playing with words and creating as many fun puns as possible.” As an example she mentioned one of her brand names “Airborne Unicorn.”

Luiz Carlos Trabuco To Choose Replacement As CEO Of Bradesco

Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the acting CEO of Bradesco bank, has announced that he will soon be leaving his current role in order to take over as chairman of the bank’s board of directors. This is big news at the Brazilian financial giant, which is among the largest such institutions in the country.

With more than 5,000 branches, $400 billion in assets and over 110,000 employees, Grupo Bradesco is one of the most important financial conglomerates across Brazil and the entire Latin American region.

As CEO, Trabuco will be responsible for appointing his own replacement. At first, it was widely speculated that he would be looking outside of the bank’s own employees for talent to replace him at CEO. While this claim had some merit, especially given the fact that Trabuco himself had complained at length about the dearth of skilled executives that the country was producing, the rumors were quickly put to rest by Trabuco himself. He stated explicitly that he was not interested in searching outside the company for the next CEO and that he would not be parting from the time-worn company tradition of recruiting executives from within the Bradesco ranks.

This would seem to leave a total of seven candidates who are qualified to be potentially tapped for the CEO position. However, those close to the proceedings say that there are really only two possible candidates that are likely to be in serious contention for the bank’s top spot.

The fist is the company’s 57-year-old chief risk officer. Alexandre Gluher has spent the majority of his career with the bank. As a result, he is one of the most senior people among all of the candidates. Gluher was also responsible for the complete risk assessment and stratification of all of the assets from the HSBC Brazil acquisition, a major project that allowed Bradesco to complete the transaction. Gluher is a widely respected figure within the bank, and he holds a number of advanced degrees and an impressive overall resume.

But those who know Luiz Carlos Trabuco say that he is someone who is far less impressed by soft performance metrics. Trabuco is on record stating that such attributes as seniority and academic credentials rank lowest on his list of considerations for hiring. Trabuco is also known to be a staunch advocate of the adoption and development of technology, viewing it as one of the main vehicles by which the bank can differentiate itself from others in the financial space and drive real customer value creation.

For these reasons, it is being widely speculated that the most likely candidate to replace Trabuco will be the bank’s 56-year-old chief IT officer Mauricio Minas. Although Minas lacks the seniority of many of his colleagues, having only been at the bank a relatively short while, he has accomplished a great deal over his brief tenure.

Among Minas’ accomplishment have been the creation of the wildly popular Next online banking platform. Next has been a major driver of both cost savings and increased organic growth, causing millions of customers to flock to the innovative Bradesco services offered within its interface.

Another key accomplishment of Minas was the complete integration of all of the technological assets of HSBC into the Bradesco systems. This was a major piece of the puzzle in the acquisition of HSBC Brazil, which has been one of the most important components of Bradesco’s recent success. Since the acquisition, the Bradesco stock price has soared, testing its all-time highs of ten years ago.

Combined, all of these reasons make it likely that Minas will be named as the next Bradesco CEO. With Trabuco at chairman and Minas as the operations executive, Bradesco will be well-poised to take on the future.

On his blog Chief Executive Officer Clay Siegall posted an ESPN article about one of Tom Brady’s family version Super Bowl rings. The ring was owned by one of his family members who put it up for auction. It sold for a record amount for Super Bowl rings, $344.927.

In other NFL news on his blog, Clay Siegall has another ESPN article about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber. He has dyslexia but he says that he considers his condition as an asset, not a disability. He says that when he tries to read his playbook it often makes little to no sense. To understands the playbook by reading it over and over again as well as drawing them out on paper. What helps the most, though, is that he does a physical walkthrough of each play so that he can fully understand it.

Clay Siegall is the CEO of Seattle Genetics, Inc. He co-founded this company in 1998 and became the CEO in 2001. When their first drug was approved by the FDA, Adcetris, he said that he and his team had basically no experience at all when it came to launching a drug commercially. Because of this he formed a partnership with another firm, Takeda, to successfully launch this cancer drug in the United States and Canada. He says that in return for Takeda paying his company substantial amounts of money they brought his drug to market and handled the marketing.

Over the past 17 years Clay Siegall has formed partnerships with a number of pharmaceutical companies. He says that sometimes he is approached to form a partnership and sometimes he seeks them out. One of the partnerships Clay Siegall signed was with Astellas and he signed a 50/50 partnership with them for their cancer drug Enfortumab vedotin.
