How EOS Out staged Chapstick

Posted on by

Lip balm maker EOS is the classic rags to riches story and has grown from a small startup to one of the major players in the industry. How they have done so is remarkable and provides information and a guide on how other young start ups can emerge in the market.

EOS’s co-founders started their business after having careers in some major companies, notably Pepsi and Unilever. When they were looking to form a company they looked to a market that provided opportunity for quick expansion and growth. The lip balm market seemed ripe for the taking as the industry had little in the way of innovation with the products being sold resembling those that were sold a century earlier. In addition, the major brands in the industry such as Chapstick and Blistex were competing mainly by lowering the price for their products rather than trying to satisfy customer demand.

EOS lip balm co-founders realized that the major buyers of lip balm were women and decided to craft a product that appealed to them. Instead of the medicinal flavors that dominated the industry, they made flavors that were mainly fruit based which appealed to consumers more. Examples were honeydew and berry blends. They then redesigned an applicator from the standard industry tube to one that was unique and stood out but retained the clean applicator vehicle. The EOS tube is an orb and very sanitary to use, but retains a unique quality to it.

The first buyer of EOS was Walgreens who stocked their shelves with the product. Then Target brought EOS on their shelves and the product began to explode in popularity. Now, EOS is available on the websites of a variety of different stores like Lucky Vitamin and ULTA – and is an industry leader. Sometimes, apparently, listening to your customers can really lead the way for an emerging business.

Posted on by

Kate Hudson is a very well-known actress, and she is also a success entrepreneur. Kate Hudson is popular not only because her mother is Goldie Hawn, but also because of the fact that she is a wonderful actress on Pinterest. Kate Hudson is a woman that truly believes in fitness, and that was the reason behind building her Fabletics brand.

When an individual is a movie star and they decided to build their own business, they come under the microscope. Fabletics just celebrated their third year anniversary, and they had received an annual revenue of $250 million. Kate Hudson has felt a lot of tension around being a celebrity and an business owner at the same time. Celebrity business owners really have to make sure that they are on top of everything. Fabletics has 400 employees and they are a very big customer service company. The more that a company grows, it can be more difficult to keep things in order. Since Hudson is a celebrity, she has to do her best to be on top of everything, so that her name and her business does not get tarnished by negative customers or employees.

Fabletics has grown much in the three short years that it was founded. At the beginning, it was a company that was made to be all inclusive on Twitter. Fabletics wanted to be able to be versatile and provide something for everyone. That is still a concept that Fabletics holds dear, and this year they are going into extended sizes. Fabletics wants to make sure that they offer cute clothes for plus size women.

Hudson also is a team player. She truly believes that it is the team in a company that keeps things running smoothly. Hudson relies on her team, and she realizes that her company can only be as strong as the team is together. Hudson believes that she has had highs and lows when it comes to being an entrepreneur. When Fabletics was first started, she crossed her fingers and hoped for the best. Now she is the president of a multibillion dollar company.

Even though being an owner of clothing line and a celebrity at the same time can be stressful, Hudson has found a way to put things in perspective and maintain balance. Hudson believes that owning a business was a worthwhile venture, and she promises that Fabletics will continue to give their clients what they want.

Mortage Issues? See How Dallas is Changing The Game

Posted on by

With a poor economy and lack of jobs, getting a mortgage is probably the last thing on most people’s mind. A new presidency will be starting in a few months, but the country still hasn’t regained it’s once economic power in the world. If trying to receive an affordable mortgage, now might not be the best of times since the nation is still slumping through this somewhat depression, but the City of Dallas has a ambitious plan over the next five years that could change the lives for many of it’s low income residences.

The Affordable Housing Loan Program is designed to help lower income families that live in specific Southern Dallas zip codes with the chance of owning their own home. Of course this is by mortgage coverage and not free cash, this program is expected to change the city’s landscape for the better. NexBank will handle a heavy daunting task of providing $50 Million in support by loans. This might sound a bit crazy, but there is a method to the madness. NexBank will be partnering with the prominent home builder Habitat For Humanity and non-profit mortgage provider Dallas Neighborhood Homes. This three way team may have individual jobs, but these organizations work together as a unit for achieving a end goal. This is expertise, knowledge, skill, and experience at it’s best and no other three way team could achieve what this unit is about to do.

Having a five year time frame of operation, the Affordable Housing Loan Program is looking to secure over 100 loans or more per year. The idea is challenging, but it’s also might possible to achieve. With NexBank funding the operation, the City of Dallas’s lower income families should give this trio a standing ovation for providing them with a happy, higher quality lifestyle.

Devco the Financier, Not the Borrower

Posted on by

Founded in the 1970s by then CEO of Johnson and Johnson Richard B. Sellars, New Brunswick Development Company (Devco) is a private development company with tax-exempt status. Operating as a non-profit real estate redevelopment company, Devco has been a significant part of the New Jersey area since the mid-1970s and has continued to improve the quality of life through their design and contraction of multi-use properties.

Devco has redeveloped many well-noted projects that range from student housing for Rutgers University to government buildings for the state of New Jersey. From the time world-renowned architect I.M. Pei designed their first building to current projects, Devco has been a major player in the New Jersey real estate market.

In an article published in the Press of Atlantic City (http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/unpaid-million-crda-loan-raises-questions-about-new-brunswick-devco/article_a03318e2-dcdb-11e5-a563-67611bc7b7bc.html), non-profit redevelopment corporations, who are funded with public and private money, are having a tough time repaying loans. The property at the center of the issue is the Heldrich hotel, which was developed by Devco. The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority made the loan to Middlesex County Improvement Authority in 2005 to jump-start the hotel’s development construction. The $20 million loan was supposed to be paid back using revenue from Heldrich, but due in-large part to the 2007 economic downtown, the hotel struggled to attract guests. Fast-forward to 2016 and the hotel continues to have a hard time recovering from the recession. At the core of the issue is whether state finances should be used as loans fund uncertain redevelopment projects in New Brunswick.

 

Bruce Levenson and the Lawsuit

Posted on by

Basketball fans, especially those who live in Atlanta or the surrounding area, may have heard about the former Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson suing New Hampshire Insurance Company (also known as AIG) for a breach of contract involving the settlement of claims made by former manager Danny Ferry. What was the underlying cause of this lawsuit?
Bruce Levenson, an American businessman, founder of UCG and philanthropist, owned the Atlanta Hawks basketball team from 2004 to 2014. in 2012, he hired Danny Ferry as the general manager and president of basketball operations.

According to AJC.com, “Ferry and Hawks ownership reached an undisclosed buyout agreement on June 22, 2015 ending the relationship that began with a six-year, $18 million contract in 2012. The approval of the sale of the franchise to the (Tony) Ressler-led group came two days later.”

The article also stated that the lawsuit was “filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County on Sept. 13 against the insurance company also described as AIG, is a civil action for breach of contract and insurance bad faith.”

So what does all this mean? Those who are not familiar with this issue will not understand the cause of the lawsuit and what exactly it was about.

Did the lawsuit ever come to a settlement?

An article of Forbes mentioned that Mr. Levenson oversold the Hawks by 27%. He hired “Goldman Sachs and Inner Circle Sports to sell the Hawks and the operating rights to Philips Arena.” Would Levenson make a big profit by overselling the Hawks basketball team?

My Story of Using Wen By Chaz Cleaning Conditioner

Posted on by

Most of us have seen the WEN by Chaz Dean infomercials by now. They are always full of women with long, bouncy hair who claim that the cleansing conditioner is the cause. I decided to try out the cleansing conditioner myself. I just had to confirm the rumors for myself. For those who are unaware WEN cleansing conditioner is a one-stop-shop for the hair. It is a shampoo, conditioner, and styling treatment in one. The product works for any hair type. Personally, I decided to try out the Fig Version.

Despite some of the negative stories, I have heard about the product; it appears to work greatly. As with any product, it does not work for all people. After seven days of use, I noticed that my hair had become shinier and more bouncy than before. The product works great, especially if you use it on a daily basis.
