Nipsey Hussle, Beloved L.A. Rapper And Activist, Lived As A Patron To His Community Facebook News NETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO Apr 1, 2019 – 4:52 pm Remembering Nipsey Hussle Twitter The GRAMMY-nominated rapper was fatally shot outside of his clothing store, the Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles, on SundayJennifer VelezGRAMMYs Apr 1, 2019 – 12:06 pm GRAMMY-nominated rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside of his clothing store, the Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 31), police confirmed. He was 33.Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, highlighted life in South Los Angeles and the socio-economic struggles people in the community faced, from single mothers working to feed their families to his own rise from financial struggle, through his poignant lyrics. He released his much-awaited official debut album, Victory Lap, in February 2018 after years of releasing several mixtapes, including The Marathon mixtape. For Hussle, creating the album was a weaving of his experiences and represented a coming full circle on his own terms. “We want to just hear great lyrics, great music, great flow and great storytelling and so I just wanted to really be intentional that that was the goal with the album,” he told the Recording Academy. “You know, I even had a conversation with the label people and it was just like, you know, the heads of the label, but what do you all expect from me on this one? Because for me, but my goal, my big picture goal to move forward and to make a step toward what my goal is as an artist, I need to make something really authentic and really organic on this first one.”The debut album was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was a project that Hussle made with fans in mind.”When I went into recording this album I [had] a ton of mixed tapes … So I just went back through all of my projects and I listened and I put myself in the mindset of a fan. And I was like what made me a fan in it, you know? And each project had two or three moments that people really held onto,” he said. “Some have more than others and I wanted the album to be a collection of those moments. I didn’t want to be nostalgic, but I wanted to be aware of why they’re connected.Hussle, a native of the Crenshaw district in South Los Angeles, was also an entrepreneur and activist who was heavily invested in his community. A day before the launch of his album, he opened a co-working STEM Center in the area called Vector90 Too Big To Fail. He owned a clothing store on Slauson called The Marathon Clothing.Beyond being a businessman and an artist, Hussle was also a loving father of two. Fatherhood served as an inspiration for his music:”Fatherhood has affected and inspired me deeply … when I went about doing music, I was really in the studio, spending the night, you know, sacrificing my personal time. Just really putting all my energy and time into the studio and I thought that was the most effective way to do it, he said. “But then having a kid, my daughter years back and then my son recently, it made me understand a balance and you might even get more inspired leaving the studio some time, going out and living and just taking her, your daughter, your kids somewhere and you might come back and what you’ve been trying to do sitting in this room wasn’t going to get done sitting in this room.You had to go out and breathe a little bit and come back in and you refresh and you ready to go. “Hussle saw life as a metaphor for a marathon that included not only his resiliency, but also his community’s. “Make sure that you stick to what you believe in,” he said. “The story that I’m telling on this album made the moment that I’m in even more special and important because it shows you the distance and the ground we covered.”Hussle is survived by his girlfriend, actress Lauren London, and his two children.One Take: Nipsey Hussle On L.A., Ice Cream, Kendrick Lamar & MoreRead more Nipsey Hussle Lived As A Patron To His Community nipsey-hussle-beloved-la-rapper-and-activist-lived-patron-his-community Email

India has the potential, resources and talent to become the engine of global economic growth. Anil Agarwal, Chairman, Vedanta Group, stated that India’s potential of attracting investment worth $100 billion is a great opportunity to create value for its people. Vedanta, India’s only diversified natural resources company, is participating at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2015, held on Friday and tomorrow. While attending the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Agarwal said, “I am confident it will emerge as a global investment destination and an easier place to do business.” Also Read – Punjab & Sind Bank cuts MCLR by up to 20 basis points The Indian government needs to take a broader perspective of its policies and reduce process time to ensure a faster and transparent decision. Stressing for higher extraction of natural resources in the country, Agarwal, while commending Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious ‘Make In India’ mission, suggested that it needs to be supported by ‘Find In India’ and ‘Mine in India’, thus skilling the youth and creating thousands of SME’s and create job opportunities. Vedanta has created value for all the stakeholders, including the Union Government, and has produced tremendous job opportunities across the natural resources value chain. It is Agarwal’s dream for Vedanta to be India’s flagship and world class diversified natural resources company which represents the country on the global map. Also Read – ‘The great gold bull market has begun’Agarwal is committed towards poverty eradication and making India a self-sufficient economy. He believes that for every young individual to truly become an active participant in India’s economic growth the tripartite network of government, academia and industry is crucial. It will engage, enable and empower these bright minds thus boosting not just employability but also enterprise.Today India looks poised to grow at over 7.5%. While, it is a robust rate, Anil Agarwal is confident that it can achieve double-digit growth. The nation’s billion plus population houses over 600 million women. 50% of its total population is between the ages of 0-25, which makes India one of the youngest nations globally. Such demographic wealth is unmatched. But it can only be tapped when its youth are educated, when its women are empowered.

Both Kolkata Police and West Bengal Police have taken up several “Safe Drive Save Life” programmes, following direction of the Chief Minister.

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. As entrepreneur Marc Andreessen famously wrote in The Wall Street Journal a few years ago, “Software is eating the world.” Traditional businesses are being disrupted and everyone is talking about starting a new software-based business. Clearly an opportunity is out there, but founders with prior software experience have an advantage.For nontechnical founders with business backgrounds, the big challenge in starting a software company is navigating the technical part of the operation. From my vantage point as a nontechnical founder and as someone who has worked with many nontechnical founding teams, I can offer five tips to entrepreneurs who are short in tech skills but aiming to build a successful software business: Related: Avoid Loss in Translation. Put Developers and Creative Staffers on the Same Page.1. Target the right market. Nontechnical founders are typically businesspeople. Ideally they can leverage experiences and connections from their prior career to use in the new software business. If $1 million in theoretical revenue can be identified from existing connections, the company is well positioned. To pivot into a new industry, think big, but start small and choose a niche so as to have clear target customers to call on. 2. Assume that the company will be building software for a while.Building the software product for a company is not a project. It’s a journey. The organization needs the ability to respond to customers and continue to refine its product until it finds a market fit.Don’t start a software business unless a dedicated technical team can be kept running throughout the journey to make the product better each week. The more dedicated the technical team is to the long-term journey, the better.3. Start selling to prospects right away. In software, “build it and they will come” is not a reality. While the technical team is working on an product (which can take months), develop customers, That way when the product launches, business customers will be lined up.Use Powerpoint and mockups to demonstrate what the company is building and presell the product. Not only will it build the business faster, the founder will gain insight into what customers want to use and are willing to pay for. Remember: The product will never be done so don’t wait to start selling.Related: Turning the ‘Challenges’ of Being a Woman in Tech Into Opportunities 4. Stay focused on strengths.Given that a founder needs to be focused on finding customers for the product, avoid the temptation of trying to control the decisions of the technical team. Give the team clear guidance and let the team work on the solution.Assuming that the technical team is experienced, be a good listener, collaborate and build trust. Be a product visionary without specifying every detail. Now get back to selling.5. Build maneuvering room for the business to stay alive.Time flies when a startup is being built and so can the budget. The #1 job of a nontechnical founder is to ensure the software business has budget runway to keep the team working on the product and build a user base. Create a realistic and conservative rolling one-year road map for the company and do everything possible to outperform the milestones.Compare the company’s performance against these milestones to attract more customers or additional investment into the business. The more that members of the team outperform the goals of the original plan, the more leeway is realized. Be sure to set very realistic expectations up front. Underpromise and overdeliver.The earliest stages of any software company will involve some very hard tasks: identifying a problem to solve, building the software to address it, selling and marketing the software and being sure to not run out of money. Nontechnical founders don’t have the skills to develop software but need a proven technical partner who can be trusted. But once that technical gap is filled, be sure to stay true to what makes nontechnical founders successful and focus on building the business.
