  • Posted on December 3, 2016 at 1:35 pm

On August 16, 2016, JustFab Inc, the parent company of subscription brands like Shoedazzle, Fabletics, Fabkids, JustFab announced that it was rebranding and would now be operating as Techstyle Fashion Group. CEO Adam Goldenberg stated in a release, “Our new corporate identity captures the essence of what JustFab has become – where Fashion Avenue meets Silicon Valley – and we’re thrilled to enter this next phase with TechStyle as our name.”

Working along with Don Ressler, Adam Goldenberg is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Techstyle Fashion Group (JustFab Inc.). Mr. Goldenberg is one of those people who can be said to have come out of the womb with just the right business acumen. At the tender age of 15, while the rest of his peers were battling the hormonal demons of puberty, Adam Goldenberg diverted his energy to something productive and founded his first company, Gamers Alliance Inc., an advertising network of gaming sites. Two years later, Gamers Alliance was sold to Intermix Media, parent company of MySpace.

Adam later joined Intermix Media as Vice President of Strategic Planning. At just 20 years old he had been promoted to Chief Operating Officer, becoming the youngest COO of a publicly traded company. It was at Intermix that Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler met. Don had also sold his own company, FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix in 2001. The two entrepreneurs became friends and their conversations inevitably became those of the next great business venture. In 2006, Goldenberg and Ressler Adam Goldenberg decided to start their own company. The coming together of these two business minds resulted in the birth of Intelligent beauty Inc., an internet business incubator for companies in personal care, beauty, and fashion spaces. Intelligent Beauty later expanded to form JustFab Inc, a personalization platform whose aim was to make online shopping engaging, fun, and highly social.

During an interview by the National Retail Federation, Mr. Goldenberg was asked what he thought was the most revolutionary thing about JustFab, to which he responded “Our membership model. It is a unique kind of commitment between company and customer that greatly benefits both.” Today, With more than 35 million members worldwide and a billion dollar valuation it seems fair to say that this membership model is one for keeps.

Equities First Has Launched An Innovative Lending Alternative

  • Posted on November 21, 2016 at 4:39 pm

Equities First Holdings, LLC was established in 2002 and has its headquarters located in Indianapolis, Indiana. This is an American company that offers security loan services for business investors. Equities First Holdings, LLC builds all of its loan transactions on integrity and transparency code. It ensures that business investors achieve loans at a minimum risk.

The Present Loan Concern

Many borrowers look for quick starting capital to expand or establish businesses. Most banks and lending institutions have put down the lid on their loan qualifications in the current state of affairs thereby closing loan opportunities for many prospective borrowers. Many lending institutions have tightened the loan qualifications and increased their interest rates. Hence, many borrowers opt for other alternative loan options.

Equities First Establishes an Innovative Lending Alternative

Equities First has launched an alternative loan option based on client stocks. Equities loans have achieved attractiveness as the substitute loan application for those who desire immediate business investment but may not qualify for the usual credit-based loans. Several business enterprises currently favor this substitute loaning option. It has naturally fixed interest rates and also presents higher loan-to-value ratio. These stock-based loans also provide assurance during the entire loan life cycle. The suggestion of providing loans security based on stocks appears practical and ground-breaking loan alternative for individuals who seek immediate working capital.

Advantages of Stock-based Loans

There exist market fluctuations which may lead to difficulties in borrower loan repayment in typical loan periods. The innovative stock-based loans present a borrower with the shield against any investment risks especially during instances of market difficulty. The Equities First CEO also says that Stock-based loans offer a borrower with non-recourse aspects that allow loonies to default from the loan even when the value of their business stocks decrease in cost. The stock-based loan present the loaned with an opportunity to default from the loan agreement and still keep the loan proceeds without having any additional obligation to the company. The stock-based loans also present the borrower with an unchanging interest charge of up to four percent and a loan-to-value amount of up to fifty percent. The borrower can utilize the stock loans for any reasons and is not limited to the company.

Standing Up For Human Rights Anywhere and Everywhere

  • Posted on November 16, 2016 at 11:35 am

When Oppression Hits Home

For Thor Halvorssen autocratic regimes aren’t some remote frustration happening in a country he’ll never visit. His homeland of Venezuela has a history of dictatorships and the toll has personally affected him. His Swedish father has seen prison time for standing up to South American dictators and his Venezuelan mother is a living victim of a regime supporter shooting.

Even among his extended family tragic fates are common such as the current incarceration of his cousin by the current Venezuelan regime. With these tragedies burned into his memories Halvorssen’s fight for human rights across the world is one he takes very personally.

Taking Every Risk Imaginable

When Thor Halvorssen decided he wanted to take up the fight against oppressive regimes he chose to tackle one of the world’s most challenging problems. Normally trying to solve a serious global crisis like poverty or disease epidemics is welcomed by just about any government, but human rights activists must face off against a virulent enemy.

Human rights violators generally don’t welcome muckrakers or negative attention to their public service. Halvorssen has routinely put his life on the line as he travels the world helping people stand up for themselves. When he decided to interview the head of the United Buddhist Church of Vietnam he was arrested by the Vietnamese government and thrown in prison. It wasn’t until he convinced the authorities that he had intentions of converting to Buddhism that he was released.

The Human Rights Foundation

Halvorssen has achieved most of his success in fighting for freedom through the Human Rights Foundation. Established in 2005 by Thor Halvorssen the foundation helps to bring about change by exposing abuse and giving the oppressed a voice.

Under his authority the foundation fights for human rights anywhere and everywhere. If there are journalists held captive in a political prison in Eastern Europe or human trafficking victims forced to toil away in a mine in Africa he is there for every victim.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner’s Are Affordable And Effective

  • Posted on November 11, 2016 at 2:16 am

Wen hair  cleansing conditioners were first introduced by celebrity hair stylist, Chaz Dean. Many years back in his career he developed this product in order to help women gain as well as maintain healthy feeling and looking hair. It has seen a great number of reviews and high ratings from women over the years, most notably the write up from Emily McClure from Bustle Magazine. She detailed her experience over the course of a week using the Fig version of WEN cleansing conditioners, showing off her great results in the end.

Despite her extremely fine and difficult to manage hair, Emily found results with the product, which she showed off in photos on her review. WEN cleansing conditioners are at the very least a must try for women who want to test all natural products and least the latest innovations in hair care. Regardless of the hair type a women has, WEN’s unique formula has been designed to effectively penetrate through past product buildup and provide a deep cleanse to leave the hair looking and feeling healthy.

Chaz Dean himself spent a lot of time getting the formula for the product just right by testing out many different natural ingredients. In the end, he created a product capable of sealing in the natural moisture of the hair without stripping it. He introduced it thru QVC ads. WEN is also highly compatible with other products in hair care and styling, because it contains no filler or cleaning chemicals. It was also part of his mission to create a product that was affordable for women so they didn’t need a lot of money to maintain healthy and beautiful looking hair. This is why every bottle of WEN comes at the fair price of $40 dollars, or even lower, which is a steal compared to what salon’s sell their high end products for. WEN cleansing conditioners in all varieties are sold exclusively through Amazon and Sephora (http://www.sephora.com/healthy-hair-care-kit-P374589).

Marc Sparks is a Shining Example of Entrepreneurship

  • Posted on October 24, 2016 at 9:05 pm

Marc Sparks is the perfect example of what a serial entrepreneur is. He didn’t just start up one or two companies, he started up several. His entrepreneurial experiences started right after he graduated from high school in 1975. Since then, he’s been involved in dozens of startups.

And like a true entrepreneur, some were incredibly successful while other turned out to be horrifying disasters. It’s safe to say, Marc’s 34 years of experience has most certainly made him a very knowledgeable man. And just recently, he finally put that knowledge on paper to share his wisdom with aspiring entrepreneurs.

Only of Marc’s favorite things to do is to take an idea that most would think cannot be done and turn it into a successful business. That is why some of his ventures turned out so badly. He keeps a few portfolio companies stashed away at Timber Creek Capital, LP; his own private equity firm.

He uses his firm like a headquarters to plan out and launch his ventures a full scale. He comes up with short-term and long-term goals and growth plans for any business model he decides to follow through on. He doesn’t like to waste time with the traditional process of setting up meetings and conferences. He’d rather address and resolve the challenge instead of sitting around, waiting on paperwork and confirmations.

Marc’s book, They Can’t Eat You, is a riveting expression of his life during his most exciting ups and downs. He talks about how painful it was for him to write the book so honestly. He expects that most aspiring entrepreneurs will learn more from failures than they will from his successes.

For example, his story about his successful software company that sells $200 million worth of product every year doesn’t really have any lessons to learn in it. But the story of how he lost a billion-dollar market gap, in just 90 days, is far more educational and inspirational.

Aside from his entrepreneurial genius, Marc is also about giving back to people. He has had a lot of involvement with Habitat for Humanity. And unlike most other successful businessmen, he has personally helped construct a dozen homes. He also believes in helping America’s youth excel in life. He’s a big supporter of American Can! Academy.

Everyone wants to take the best care of their home, but not everyone has the time to give their home the care that it needs. Those who are interested in making their home look its very best should give Handy a try because of the different services that they offer. When many think of Handy, if they know about the company, they always think about home cleaning services. Although Handy does clean homes, they do a lot more too.

Assembly services are available through Handy as well as cleaning services, plumbing, moving services, painting and more. If a home needs any kind of care, then Handy can be the company that fulfills that need. Those who want a painting service done by Handy workers can hop onto the website to get an estimate on how much it will cost to do the service. The cost of the painting services will vary, depending on how much work needs to be done.

Those that set up an account online can also make their payment online as well by using the approved debit or credit cards. A professional worker that is background checked and insured will come out to the customer’s home to do any job that they have been hired for. Many like the assembly services that Handy offers because it allows them to get their entertainment center as well as other types of furniture assembled.

Plumbing services are also very popular from Handy because not all local plumbers can be available when they are needed, so those that go to the sohostrut.com website can easily get a plumber out to them as soon as possible. Most services can have a service person come out to the home the very next day, and satisfaction is guaranteed for every job that is done by a Handy worker.

It is quite affordable for most prison families and can be exactly what you need when trying to boost the way you view video messaging services in the prison system.

Raj Fernando’s Reign at Scoutahead

  • Posted on October 13, 2016 at 2:50 pm

While still in school, Fernando would volunteer at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange before his way up as the executive member of the Chicago Board of Trade between 1991 and 2001. He attended Beloit College to pursue a bachelor’s degree in economics and history and later the University of London for advanced studies. While working as a volunteer, Raj acquired extensive entrepreneurial knowledge and experience that helped him establish Chopper Trading in 2002. Under Raj’s helm, Chopper Trading’s addressable market expanded significantly, having traded on the LSE, Eurex, ICAP-Broketek, and CME. In 2015, DRW, a Chicago-based trading firm acquired Chopper Trading. Consequently, Raj Fernando unveiled Scoutahead, the internet startup in 2016 to improve business and professional productivity and growth through advanced and reliable communication systems.

As the CEO and Chairman of Scoutahead, Fernando supports various humanitarian efforts in the United States. He serves on the board of directors for PAWS Chicago and board of trustees of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Besides, he supports initiatives of humanitarian organizations such as the Clinton Foundation and Wounded Warriors. In 2011, Raj was appointed to the International Security Advisory Board responsible for advising then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. He later stepped down citing extreme instability in the international markets.

Raj Fernando’s tenure at Scoutahead

In the past decade, companies from all over the world have been ditching the traditional annual employee review process and replacing it with informal check-ins between managers and employees. As the CEO of Scoutahead, Raj Fernando commits to developing a platform that would facilitate and improve real-time performance review system. The traditional performance appraisal is no longer relevant for most businesses. It is criticized for restricting innovation, creativity, and not promoting collaboration at the workplace. However, Scoutahead fills the gap by providing a platform that facilitates real-time performance evaluation and enables employees to solicit feedback from their colleagues before their formal review. As such, Scoutahead provides a platform for employees to take charge of their real-time growth. According to Raj Fernando, abandoning performance appraisal helps employees to improve their talent management efforts; therefore, they are allowed to take charge of their growth.
