What inspired you to start your business?

“Confused Girl in the City” started as a blog 6 years ago. I was lost at the time and wanted to share my feelings with others. I figured I couldn’t be the only confused one out there. It’s funny how we feel we’re the only ones when every human being has either been there, is still there or is going to be there again! My blog took a life of its own and put me on a spiritual journey to find my true nature. Along this journey I met a healer who had a profound effect on me. He had a collection of crystals and told me to pick two to take home. I had these crystals in my room and felt so much joy when I walked past them. One day I was meditating and I had a vision of creating a line of women’s activewear that was inspired by these crystals. So with no money and an idea, I started the journey. I had no idea how I was going to make it happen but I knew I had to do it. I used my part-time job money to fund my business and step by step I was able to create an international activewear business. Now, six years later, I have sold my designs all over the world, we have been featured on Thrive Global, Yoga Digest, Yoga Magazine, Silicon Beach Magazine and on the cover of LA Yoga. We are in select stores in LA and expanding.

What’s the biggest professional risk you’ve taken?

Moving to Bali and Europe. I had to make the business completely mobile and this meant that my margins of profit were less. But it proved to be a success because I have a book coming out soon and my influencer business is making more money

What drives you to keep going each day?

Without purpose people perish. I believe that my purpose is to help other women find their true nature by me finding mine. Every day has a new lesson for us.

Ford’s market cap tops $100 billion for the very first time

Published

on

Ford Motor’s market value topped $100 billion for the first time ever as the automaker’s stock hit a new 52-week high Thursday.

The organization’s shares hopped Thursday by as much as 5.7% to $25.87, hitting another 20 or more year high, prior to shutting at $25.02 a share, up 2.3%. Its fairly estimated worth dropped to $99.99 billion.

The additions have been energized by Ford’s plans to build production of electric vehicles, including the Mustang Mach-E crossover and an upcoming electric version of its bestselling F-150 pickup that is expected out this spring. The efforts are part for a Ford+ turnaround plan led by CEO Jim Farley, who assumed control over the helm in October 2020.

Ford’s presently worth more than crosstown adversary General Motors, at about $90 billion, as well as electric vehicle start-up Rivian Automotive, at $72 billion, which has failed to support acquires following a blockbuster IPO in November. Ford proceeds to altogether trail Tesla, which has a market cap of more than $1 trillion.

The automaker is evaluated overweight with a value focus of $21.83 an offer, as indicated by a normal of 22 examiners arranged by FactSet. Be that as it may, not all Wall Street examiners haven’t totally gotten tied up with Ford’s turnaround.

“The stock market’s attraction to the Ford EV story continues to take us by surprise,” Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas told investors in a Thursday note called “Ford Market Cap Crosses $100bn: What’s In the Price?”

Morgan Stanley’s value focus for Ford is $12 an offer. Its bull case for the stock is $25 an offer, as indicated by Jonas.

“Ford’s share price movement is impressive and management deserve credit for changing the strategic narrative, triggering a re-rating,” Jonas said. “However, at this juncture, we believe the risks facing Ford and the sector are rising faster than the opportunity.”

Jonas refered to worries including the auto industry’s historically cyclical nature returning, challenges in scaling EV production and more competitive and engaging EVs entering the market against Ford.
