Become A Compassionate Entrepreneur, With Trades Of Hope
Empower and become empowered, with Trades of Hope.
From time to time, as a business owner, you’ll get the opportunity to become something more than “just another entrepreneur”. Sometimes, you’ll get a shot at making a real difference in someone’s life.
At Trades of Hope, they make giving you that shot that business.
Start Giving Back To The Women Of The World
The work done at Trades of Hope falls into the category of charity, but that’s reducing it a little too much. They are an active, socially-conscious brand that sources ethically-crafted fashion and accessories from women who might otherwise be sidelined from earning an income.
They outsource the selling to you, a vendor, and the proceeds go back to women who desperately need it.
The work they do pulls these women away from the poverty they struggle with every day, as well as the systems that oppress them. Sex slavery. Sweatshop work. Even just the oppressive lack of education that goes hand-in-hand with constantly having to work for a paycheque that never comes. Their work puts the power back into their hands, and we’re proud to say they currently employ artisan partners from more than 16 different countries.
And Here’s Where You Come In
So how and why should you get involved with Trades of Hope?
We’re glad you asked:
- Giving Back: One of the more frustrating parts of working with impoverished women is hearing “I’d help out if there was something I could offer, but….” With these products in your shop, you’re actively helping to put money in the hands of women who need it. This is your opportunity.
- The Fashions Are Unique and Gorgeous: This isn’t some pity project where you’ll be left hocking ugly bracelets to customers who don’t want them. Some of these garments and fashion accessories look good enough for the runway.
- It’s Good For Business: Being involved in charity isn’t only morally good. It’s also a great way to promote your own business. Affiliate yourself with a movement that’s helping women around the world, and enjoy being able to call yourself an ally.
- Actually Earn An Extra Income: Don’t get us wrong: charity is the more important part of this process. But they offer vendors at least 25% of the earnings from the sales of these items, meaning you actually get to benefit from each sale as well. And that’s just good business.
- Promote Products From Across The World: The nature of their service is that they offer businesses the opportunity to sell accessories from many different countries. Bring in a multicultural palette to your shop, and breathe some new life into your product line. With this kind of eye-catching offering, you’ll have them hooked the moment they walk through the door.
Trades Of Hope: Join In Giving Back
It’s not hard to justify charity work. As humans, we want to help out as much as we can. What’s important, though, is to recognize that charity work also helps the people who do it and that there are more reasons to do it than just giving back to some nameless person you’ve never met.
With Trades of Hope, the benefits are clear.

Facebook Stock Drops after Reports of FTC – Mark Zuckerberg Is Worried
It’s no surprise that Zuckerberg’s focusing his attention on improving Facebook. Since it’s officially become the largest past time of the world, fake news has become a menace — something that the Russians allegedly exploited to influence the 2016 US election. Publisher pages cluttering up people’s newsfeed is eclipsing updates from friends and loved ones — a growing complaint amongst Facebook users.
“The world feels anxious and divided, and Facebook has a lot of work to do — whether it’s protecting our community from abuse and hate, defending against interference by nation states, or making sure that time spent on Facebook is time well spent,” Zuckerberg wrote, before reiterating his personal challenge for 2018 is all about fixing these important issues.

Facebook is facing its biggest test ever—and its lack of leadership could sink the company
Facebook is facing an existential test, and its leadership is failing to address it.
Good leaders admit mistakes, apologize quickly, show up where they’re needed and show their belief in the company by keeping skin in the game. Facebook executives, in contrast, react to negative news with spin and attempts to bury it. Throughout the last year, every time bad news has broken, executives have downplayed its significance. Look at its public statements last year about how many people had seen Russian-bought election ads — first it was 10 million, then it was 126 million. Top execs dodged Congress when it was asking questions about Russian interference. They are selling their shares at a record clip.
The actions of Facebook execs now recall how execs at Nokia and Blackberry reacted after the iPhone emerged. Their revenues kept growing for a couple years — and they dismissed the threats. By the time users started leaving in droves, it was too late.
There’s no outside attacker bringing Facebook down. It’s a circular firing squad that stems from the company’s fundamental business model of collecting data from users, and using that data to sell targeted ads. For years, users went along with the bargain. But after almost a year of constant negative publicity, their patience may be waning.
Facebook did not initially respond to questions or a request for comment from CNBC.
Broadcom’s Qualcomm Takeover Blocked by President Donald Trump
President Donald Trump has blocked Broadcom’s $117 billion bid for Qualcomm, citing national security concerns. The United States is particularly worried that the takeover could boost China’s influence in 5G technology. We asked foreign investment and technology research experts to share their thoughts on the decision.
President Donald Trump issued an executive order Monday blocking the impending takeover of the chipmaker Qualcomm by its Singapore-based rival Broadcom.
In doing so, he most likely sent millions in advisory fees for those working on the bid up in smoke.
Moelis & Company, Citi, Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley were advising Broadcom on the merger. Those banks would have shared $110 million to $135 million in fees if the deal had completed, Jeffrey Nassof, a director at the consulting firm Freeman & Co., told Business Insider in November when the bid was first announced.
Bank of America, Citi, Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan, and Morgan Stanley were also helping arrange debt financing, while Silver Lake Partners had agreed to supply $5 billion in convertible debt financing.
Qualcomm had resisted the takeover offer, hiring Goldman Sachs and Evercore to aid its defense. Had the deal gone ahead, Goldman Sachs and Evercore could have made $120 million to $145 million in fees, according to Nassof.
Now that the deal has been blocked, Qualcomm’s advisers are likely to see some payout, though it’s not clear how much.
