About Adnan Zai

I like to spend my time giving back with organizations that focus on mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs. I have supported after school programs that focus on entrepreneurial and global initiatives in local primary schools. I recently extended my mentoring to include students at Case Western Reserve University.

Leading From a Place of Diversity

The question of immigrants is alive and well in the United States, and the issue as well as the immigrants themselves have been turned into a pawn. In other countries, the idea of immigrants is not quite so polarizing, and leadership roles as well as wealth have gone to people who were not born natively in a particular land. Considering the impact of immigrants’ families through subsequent generations is also an important consideration to make when thinking about immigrants entering new countries. […]

The Tipping Point Has Been Reached

With the turbulent nature of oil production on any given day, the news just got a little worse when dealing with this sticky situation. In an unstable world dealing with an unstable product, OPEC+’s decision to stop oil production last week is likely to make a bad situation worse. And for consumers who are already bone-tired by the high cost of living and the uncertainty of the world, this news is anything but good. Over the Falls in a Barrel Last week, OPEC+ decided to cut production of oil by the largest amount since the pandemic began, and the International Energy Agency has warned that this could tip the scales [...]

The Beginning of the End?

The streets of Iran are teeming with protestors as a worried world watches from the sidelines. With the clash of young people who hold strong convictions coupled with the fierce old-boy Iranian regime, the bloodied streets of Iran are becoming a graveyard. But the protests continue as the citizens stand up for themselves. A country that is so dear to me because I was born there, has yet again made the headlines for the wrong reasons. […]

Developers Past Decisions Led to Many Homes Washing Away with Hurricane Ian

As unpredictable as hurricanes are, there is often no telling what will happen when they make landfall. Hurricane Ian recently proved this adage when it washed away roads and bridges, leaving utter destruction in its path when it came to shore last Wednesday. And a bad situation was made worse by the greed of past developers who built a plethora of houses right where the storm surge should have flowed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nXWK3dZm7M&feature=youtu.be Raging Winds and Wild Water When Hurricane Ian slammed into Florida last Wednesday as a powerful Category 4 storm, homes and businesses were decimated, and roads and bridges were also damaged by the powerful winds and water.

The Continuation of Gender Disparity in Sports

For one of the most popular pastimes on the planet, the soccer world sure has their priorities messed up. Women soccer players around the globe continue to be paid a paltry sum when compared with their male counterparts. It is time to right this wrong and catch up with the times.

The Runaway Inflation Train Continues

If you feel like you are on a runaway train with no end in sight when it comes to the rising cost of goods and services, then you are not alone. Prices have skyrocketed for a wide variety of reasons, including supply chain woes, war in Ukraine, drought, and other natural disasters.
