Whitney Wolfe Herd is a rare executive, struck gold with the dating app Bumble and promotes female empowerment. Bumble reversed the traditional dynamics of dating because women make the first move. This gave women both empowerment and safety, making it one of the top apps for dating in the United States. Her success story began while attending college at the Southern Methodist University. She sold bamboo tote bags for a non-profit cause and achieved success. Her entrepreneurism continued during her studies in Paris.
Whitney Wolfe Herd joined several different businesses after college including a dating app start up named Tinder in 2012. She headed marketing as the Vice President but left Tinder in 2014 due to a dispute. She never intended to get back into the world of the dating space but Andrey Andreev changed her mind. This was when Bumble was created. The app was unique because it placed a time limit for acting on a match while enabling only women to initiate the first move. Women were no longer feeling harassed so more conversations began. This led to sixty percent of all matches becoming a conversation. Bumble achieved significant success.
During her entrepreneurial success she met Michael Herd on an Aspen skit trip over Christmas. When she found out he had never learned to ski she agreed to provide lessons. Then Whitney Wolfe found out he had been putting her on. Two years after they began dating he proposed on his family’s ranch. They married in a beautiful ceremony in Positano, Italy. Her personal and professional lives were now complete.
The Bumble hive began expanding and two new services were added. Bumble Bizz enabled users to find business opportunities and Bumble BFF friends.

Whitney Wolfe Herd ensured the majority of gray areas such as ulterior motives were eliminated. The age of the individuals searching for business contacts through Bumble Bizz was not revealed.
Whitney Wolfe Herd continued to stand by her principles. After the shooting at the school in Parkland, Florida, she prohibited users from posting images of weapons and firearms.

Assets abroad are regulated by the law 13254. Lawyers from Brazil can engage actively with lawyers in the diaspora through this channel. Ricardo Tosto is well pleased by this opportunity. The law which is widely referred to as the asset repatriation project came into effect in January 2016. It allows Brazilian assets and resources to be returned back to the country. The lawyers work hand in hand to come up with the necesarry documentation that make this possible.
Ricardo Tosto, a partner at Nelson and Associates firm, says that the law provides good ground for the exposure of local lawyers to the rest of the world. They get to interact with their compatriots from countries across the world. The regulation of assets laws, as it is known in other quarters, is not limited to only two countries. Legal processes and procedures can be effectively carried out in a host of nations simultaneously so long as the assets in question are from Brazil.
Congress was in no hurry to approve the project according to Ricardo Tosto. He had to lower both the income tax and the fines rate to 15% from the 17.5% that he had initially proposed. This occured after a series of discussions among members of the house who sought to standardize it.
The exchange rate on the other hand was fixed to 20%, which was its value in December 2014. Earlier reports had indicated that the Union had collected 30% of the assets. Ricardo Tosto clarified that this was not the case. This was occasioned by a difference in the exchange rate fom the time the proposal was made to the time the collection was implemented.
Ricardo Tosto who was a founding partner of Leite also weighed in on the provision for letting some offenders go scot-free. It only denies amnesty to drug traffickers, corrupt officials and smugglers. Crimes like tax evation and money laundry had the possibility of receiving acquittal.
Ricardo Tosto stated that there was need for the lawyersto streamline the process so that this wouldn’t be the case. Laws that would allow for the possibility of tracking down offenders and investigating their activities keenly so as to impose the correct penalties ought to be formulated by the partnership between the lawyers.
