You’ll Be Talking About End Citizen’s United For The Next Four Years

February 20, 2017

Corporations and wealthy people have bought your voice in politics. That is the message of End Citizen’s United, a Washington D.C. based PAC working to change the infamous Citizen’s United ruling from the Supreme Court in 2010.

The Citizen’s United decision essentially made it legal for corporations to funnel unlimited money to politicians as election donations on opensecrets.org. In other words, corporations have the same rights as individual people and can donate as much money as they want to elections. The inherent problem with the ruling was it opened the door for “dark” or untraceable money to be given to candidates with no accountability for its origination.

End Citizens United Steps Into The Fight
End Citizens United formed as a grassroots effort to change the impact of the ruling. Supreme Court decisions are usually the last word on legal decisions. However, there is a way to get around their judgments, by passing a constitutional amendment reversing the decision on Facebook.

End Citizens United is leading the fight against the ruling and garnering much support along the way. Founded in March of 2015, the PAC raised more than $2 million and established itself as a major player on the political game field. They also partnered with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, giving them exposure to more than 4 million supporters and financial partners.

Why End Citizen’s United Is Different
There are other PACs involved in campaign finance reform, but End Citizen’s United is taking a different approach on msnbc.com. They are actively seeking out and supporting candidates who support campaign finance reform. They fashioned a questionnaire given to all candidates asking for their opinions on reform. They post the responses of people they support so donors can see who receives their support.

End Citizen’s United also lives by the rules it supports. The company depends on, and receives, most of its support from a grassroots effort and small donations on endcitizensunited.org. They’ve received over 136,000 donations with the average donation being $14.86.
While End Citizen’s United focusses on reversing the Supreme Court decisions, they also hope to influence state and local campaign finance laws. Their end goal is to return the power of the people to the election process and not have corporations have the sole voice in politics.

Led By Experience And Passion
Veteran Political players comprise the leadership of End Citizens United. Congressman Ron Barber heads up their board. He has a 32-year career in government and has owned a private business for 22 years. The other board members are:

Jessica Vanden Berg
Christopher Massicote
Lanae Erickson Hatalsky

The election of President Trump has not stopped the organization from forging ahead on its mission. They continue to grow in support and political power.

How Fabletics Is Dominating The Online Fashion Retail Industry

February 20, 2017

In just four years, movie star Kate Hudson’s Fabletics brand has been able to take over the online fashion retail industry with its clever business strategies and deep understanding of its target customers.

 

Today, the company is worth over $250 million and boasts several brick-and-mortar stores across the country. Despite the brand’s plan to launch additional physical stores across the world over the next few years, the company remains largely based in e-commerce. Its major selling point is the convenient and unique subscription service model.

 

On the Fabletics website, you can find hundreds of athletic apparel staples like jogging pants, leggings, sports bras and hoodies. While many athletic apparel brands offer the same products, customers choose Fabletics because the clothes are both stylish and high in quality, not to mention incredibly affordable. Fabletics clothes are made with high-tech fabrics that are resistant to sweat and are incredibly comfortable to wear during intense workouts. The variety of styles, prints and colors also makes the Fabletics website the ultimate destination for any woman who loves to consistently add to her workout apparel wardrobe.

 

Another thing that makes Fabletics unique is that it encourages customers to join a clever VIP membership program. Upon signing up, members fill out a survey so that Fabletics can determine their tastes and preferences. Then, for $49.95 each month, members receive a full workout outfit in the mail on a monthly basis. This convenient way of purchasing clothing is what has launched the business into success.

 

Joanie and Heather of thekrazycouponlady.com signed up when they discovered what a deal the brand was offering. VIP members receive their first outfit for only $25. Upon receiving their outfits, they were delighted by the high quality and cute styles of the clothes.

 

When Fabletics launched several brick-and-mortar stores last year, business experts were surprised. With consumer data indicating that more and more consumers are shopping online instead of in physical stores, many considered physical stores to be nearing obsolescence. However, Hudson opened the stores using the “reverse showroom” strategy that had proven to be a success for tech giants like Apple.

 

This “reverse showroom” concept uses physical stores to encourage more online revenue. When a customer walks into a Fabletics store, they can observe and touch the clothes and see for themselves that the brand makes high quality products. Then, they are encouraged to sign up to become a VIP member. When they try anything on in the dressing room, it’s added automatically to their online shopping cart.

 

Instead of aiming to earn a tremendous amount of revenue in physical stores, Fabletics stores serve the purpose of redirecting customers to the online VIP membership program. Fabletics online user data dictates which items go into each store. Regional sales trends determine what types of items should be stocked in different locations throughout the country. If a certain Fabletics item is trending on social media, that item will be featured in stores for a period of time.

 

The strategy has paid off. The brand now earns more than Amazon’s fashion department which is certainly no easy feat.

For this reason, he has sat down and reflected in ways through which a young person can succeed in life and business at the same time.

This is a business conglomerate with more than 10 million members. Let’s look at the major key point.

 

  1. Be a leader, not a boss

There are two management positions in any business setup in the world. You can choose one of them. You can either become a leader or a boss. Before you chose to become either of them, you must first consider having an education on both. Bosses and leaders are the most innovative people in the business environment. A boss uses his title to force the people to perform duties and accomplish goals they do not own. For this reason, he also demands respect from the people who are not acquainted in this relationship. As a matter of fact, he is also one of the most innovative people working for the business world in innovation and categorical capabilities. A leader works by influencing the people to take on a mission they own.

Having great looking hair isn’t by chance unless you have superior genetics. To some degree, we’re all a bit vain, but in a good way. A person’s hair health is a reflection of self in which we’re all scrutinized no matter the color, race, or creed. According to this Wiki article, there are many variables in place that can dictate the way your lustrous locks appear. The weather can play a huge role in how your hair appears depending on climate conditions. Understanding your climate type can be very advantageous if you’re seeking perfection, but one of the best things you can do is by preventive maintenance.

Using “gentle” shampoo and conditioning is a great way to start, but these exact products can be hard to find in this cluttered market. Haircare products from some of your favorite brands can be harmful with long term use. Aveda, Pantene, L’Oréal, Olay, and many more are no exception to the rules since many of these products actually contains dangerous sulfates. A perfect example of this is if you read the label of most products, it will advise you to stay away from open flames. These sulfates, being of a synthetic structure, can and will explode if you’re in dire situations. Luckily there is a brand that takes away all doubt and this brand is known as WEN hair by Chaz.

This haircare line by Chaz Dean is safe for all conditions thanks to it’s organic structure. These are powerful, yet gentle natural ingredients which offers the user Grade A nourishment.

Exploring The Successes Of OSI Group and Future Plans

January 27, 2017

Emerging a leader in the highly competitive world of business takes a lot of planning and execution. Companies that are today successful and established rely on the plans and strategies that are laid by professionals in the management capacity of the companies. It takes a lot of research and testing for a company to understand the needs of the market and to design products that answer the needs of these demands. The food industry is one of the industries where there is both demand and choking competition that can prevent a company from moving to attain its goals.

However, there are companies in the food industry that seem to have mastered the path to success and one of them is OSI Group, a company that has dominated the U.S. food processing and distribution industry for decades. Having been in operation for more than one century, OSI Group has attained what many companies in the same industry can only dream about. It is the best-ranked in the U.S. and to remain at the top the company has been investing in getting to other major markets across the world.

Growing market cover
One of the ways this has been possible is through acquisitions, where OSI Group acquired several companies that are leading in the production of food products across the world. In 2016, OSI Group made a bold move that saw the company acquire controlling stakes in Baho Food, a company that has been operating within Germany and Netherlands. This is a prudent idea that worked by introducing OSI Group to new and better opportunities that will help the company to grow bigger.

Diversifying product variety and enhancing quality
Getting to work with other companies and acquiring controlling stakes is a strategy OSI Group applies to get through to other markets and to broaden its network of product delivery. The system has been growing each day and the company is eyeing getting to other markets in a bid to serve its unwavering need to cover the entire world.

Building OSI Group to this level has not been an easy journey, but with strategies like building products that are designed to offer value accelerated the process. Many of the products the company deals in are unique and their quality at a higher level when compared with what most companies in the industry offer. They also have varieties and good ideas of improving existing products to match with changes in market preferences.

Flavio Maluf Cites Entrepreneurs’ Increased Confidence in the Brazilian Growth Industry

Entrepreneur confidence in the growth industry of Brazil has experienced a number of falls from the start of 2015. Flavio Maluf, a Brazilian entrepreneur and Eucatex president, remains optimistic that the sector will experience some growth in the coming months. There is no growth that has been witnessed since August leading to rising pessimism.

Increased Confidence among Entrepreneurs

An increase in the entrepreneurs’ confidence was confirmed by ICI (Industry Confidence Index) in September. There was a 2.1 increase on the index which had suffered a retraction of one point in August. ICI reported that it reached 88.2 points in September compared to 86.1 in August. Flavio notes that this is the highest index result achieved since it got to 88.8 points back in July 2014. The ICI data is usually obtained from carrying out an analysis of executives’ perspectives on their monetary activities and others for the subsequent six months. In September, the institute had gathered opinions of over 1,120 companies.

Looking into the Future

Aloisio Campelo Junior, public statistics superintendent of Ibre/FGV expressed hope that there could be a soft improvement from the analysis of the data presented. Despite the fact that the domestic market is presenting a very slow recovery, the outlook of the coming months looks positive. This is following the over 13 points cumulative increase noted from the third to ninth month of the year 2016. This is a great step in the right direction although the numbers cannot be described as good enough. Another fact that is important is the Level of Installed Capacity (Nuci) which reported a 0.9% increase in September to reach 74.7%, the highest point since December 2015.

About Flavio Maluf

Flavio Maluf is a Brazilian Businessman and a Mechanical Engineer by profession.

EOS and Their Upward Trends

January 10, 2017

For many decades, when anyone thought about lip balm, Chapstick was the brand that came to mind. Chapstick was the leader and dominated in all categories. Even with being the leader, they were still very basic and generic. The shape was the same and there were very few flavors.

This was the way of the lip balm industry up until seven years ago. This is when EOS changed the face of the lip balm company. EOS, or Evolution of Smooth, began as a small start-up and did their research before making their move.

In the beginning, EOS lip balm relied on research and research groups. They found out as much as they could about the client base and what their needs were. Once they had learned as much about the needs and wants of the lip balm industry, they got to work.

First, they brought in a clay artist. The artist created different options for shapes of the new product. Each option was carefully considered and the orb shape was chosen. The next step was to get the product into stores.

Walgreens was the first store to place the new EOS product onto the shelves. Once the happened, other stores like Target and even Lucky Vitamin quickly followed suit. The new orb took off quickly and became a hit. Popular magazines wrote about it on their pages. Celebrities were photographed using the product. Sales began to skyrocket and EOS found itself as the number two lip balm company. Chapstick had fallen below EOS and the industry had definitely seen some changes. http://www.ulta.com/brand/eos

With all of the success EOS has been having, they are still looking up. They have big plans and will continue their successful streak.
