Doe Deere Says Dreams Do Come True, Especially For Unicorns

Trendy, colorful, and uninhibited, Doe Deere is an inspiration for us all, to follow our dreams. In a recent interview, Deere sat down to share some of her secrets of success and struggles. From leaving home to chase her dreams to becoming the leader of a successful cosmetic brand, she reminds us all that even our wildest dreams are in reach.

As a young child, Deere tapped into her ambition and spirit of entrepreneurship. When she was just 13, she started her first small business. Many of her classmates hadn’t yet stumbled upon temporary tattoos, but she had. The cool edgy look peeked the interest of her peers and classmates and the business-minded 13-year-old found a way to transform her temporary tattoos into cash. Not half bad for a girl just barely in her teens.

Since then, Deere knew that she was meant to be a leader. Born and raised in Russia, she left home at the age of 17, in hopes of becoming a musician. Her desire to perform led the ambitious teen to New York City, where she would perform several small shows while trying to establish herself in the industry. When her attempts were unsuccessful, she turned to her second love, makeup. Deere has always had a passion for art and self-expression. When she failed to find suitable options for lip color, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Though her music career was unsuccessful, what she did do was gain valuable experience in marketing and self-promotion, and in 2008, she used it to launch her business. Lime Crime was founded with a vision to revolutionize the world of makeup. Deere wanted to change to the tradition of boring, traditional colors and give makeup lovers something to smile about. Under the leadership of the self-proclaimed “Queen of Unicorns” Lime Crime has reached the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Since its launch, Lime Crime has grown from a small lip color startup to an online universe for uninhibited makeup lovers.

Securus Technologies Changing How Officer Conduct Business

One of the hardest jobs in the world is working as a guard in a prison. I know firsthand because today I am employed in a prison in Texas that has the highest concentration of violent gang members who would jump at the chance to hurt me and my team. To maintain order, we have to be vigilant in our efforts because it only takes a second for inmates to overpower an officer.

 

In the past we used to be able to keep the peace because there were less inmates, but overcrowded conditions have made it hard on everyone inside the jail. Inmates are crammed inside small cells with individuals they might not like, while others are placed in tent camps in the heat because we can not fit them in a cell. This makes for very tense times, so we value every resource at our disposal today.

 

When we were in contact with Securus Technologies about updating the inmate call monitoring system, little did any of us at the time realize that this resource would significantly improve the working conditions for all the staff inside this facility.

 

Securus Technologies is a Texas based company that employs thousands and has already installed their call monitoring system in thousands of prisons. The LBS software is the key to the success of the system, being able to listen to every second of every call these inmates are making, and quickly alert my team when there is any chatter bout concerning subject matter like drugs, weapons, contraband, gangs, or violence.

 

The advantage we have now and why this prison has seen such a reduction in violence is because my team can get ahead of any potentially dangerous situation now instead of always being in the position of trying to chase down the problem after it occurred.
