EOS Lip Balm’s Journey To Success

EOS lip balm is known for their ball shape, attractive packaging, and effective formula. This lip balm is also known for its sudden popularity, leaving many business creative and other individuals to wonder how EOS became so successful at the fast rate that it did. EOS realized that the lip balm industry didn’t have anything unique or exciting for consumers, as each stick of balm seemed to resemble the others’ shape; this gave EOS (acronym for evolutionofsmooth.com) the opportunity to create an innovative product for women to use in their daily beauty regimen.

Why did EOS lip balm specialize their product to women? Well, EOS did some research and found that although many other lip balms were presented to males and females, the majority of sales were coming from women, as lip balm had become a staple in their oral care. Realizing that they had the opportunity to tailor a product to women and make it something that was enjoyable (and cute), EOS made an innovative sphere-like product shape for its lip balm, followed by making flavors different than the typical cherry balm. Understanding how the chemicals found in beauty products can affect the body and environment, EOS set out to include organic ingredients in their lip balms, giving women something to smile about.

EOS chose to target women as their demographic, but they also chose to tailor their lip balm product to millennials, which was a step that was very beneficial in the making of their success. Asking beauty guru on Facebook and YouTube to include EOS in their cosmetic review and tutorial videos, this leading lip balm company reached many young females fast and efficiently. Women wanted the new buzzed about product, and since the beautiful new lip balm is effective and cost-friendly, many women still continue to repurchase it.

Dick DeVos Talks About His Family Philanthropy

For the first time, Dick DeVos is talking about the philanthropy he and his family are doing. After years of asking, Dick DeVos finally gave Forbes magazine the figures they had been trying to get for years. The amount of money the DeVos family has donated to charity places the family 20th on Forbes annual list of the top 50 givers. The family gave $94 million in 2014 alone and a total of almost $1.2 billion in lifetime giving. The family decided to release these figures to Forbes in the hope it would encourage others to be as generous in their giving. A family spokesman stated the Forbes list starts important conversations about giving and how to support others in the community.

 

The Devos family are well known for their support of conservative issues, and political candidates and the Forbes numbers do not include these figures. The Forbes list accounts only for money that has reached its recipients, how the family distributes their contributions was further examined by MLive and The Grand Rapids Press using 2013 IRS records.

 

The breakdown shows the DeVoses are big supporters of education, 48 percent of the money donated dedicated to education. Health and community services garnered 27 percent, churches and faith-based organizations received 13 percent, and 12 percent went to arts and culture. The Devos family believe in supporting the local community first. Therefore, 66 percent of their donations stayed in the Grand Rapids area. Donations to conservative think tanks such as The Heritage Foundation are made through the health and community services listings. For a year to year comparison, a family spokesman gave the 2014 numbers to The Press, and they were much the same. Education 45 percent, health and community services 35 percent, arts and culture 15 percent, and 5 percent going to churches and faith-based organizations.

 

Dick DeVos started his career with Amway Corporation in 1974. He is the oldest son of Amway co-founder Richard DeVos, Sr. Amway is well-known network sales company that distributes health and household items through a network of dealers who in turn recruit other dealers making it possible for an individual to move up the chain and eventually create a distributorship of their own. During his years at Amway Dick held positions with varying levels of responsibility, being promoted to vice-president of the company’s operations in 18 countries in 1984. In 1989 Dick left Amway and started a new business, The Windquest Group, a company that invested in several different kinds of manufacturing. In 1991 he was made the manager of the Orlando Magic Basketball franchise, while still staying active in the Windquest Group.

 

Dick DeVos’s interest in politics prompted him to ran for governor in the state of Michigan in 2006, an election he eventually lost to Democrat Jennifer Granholm. Dick and his wife Betsy have four children and reside in Michigan.

 

Adam Goldenberg Makes A Name Change To JustFab

Adam Goldenberg is a marketing branding guru who co-founded a trendy fashion retail company along with Don Ressler. That company, originally known as JustFab is changing its name to TechStyle. Goldenberg explained that the name was changing, not only because most of the purchases came from the internet, but because the company was making plans to upgrade its systems to a more data-oriented interface and was looking to merge silicon valley into the world of fashion shopping on Angel.co. The company primarily operates on an e-commerce platform, but they’ve started opening stores in some states, and have plans to open in many more locations in the next year.

Goldenberg and Ressler helped launch an e-commerce subsidiary at Intermix Media, the division that became a biggest source of revenue for the company. But in 2005, News Corp decided to buy out the company and do away with the e-commerce subsidiary. This, along with other changes at the company upset Goldenberg and Ressler, so they decided to leave Intermix Media and start their own e-commerce and branding company. That company became Intelligent Beauty, a parent company to several health products and cosmetic brands. Goldenberg and Ressler ran this company from 2006 to 2010, and soon they became interested in a new business.

Adam Goldenberg would tell you he knew little about fashion or its terminology, but he believed he could have fun running a fashion retail business, so he and Ressler started up JustFab at http://rgtadvisors.com/bio/adam-goldenberg/. The company became attractive to venture capital companies like Crosscut Ventures, Passport Capital, and most notably Matrix Partners. JustFab raised $85 million in 2014 alone, and soon became valuated at over $1 billion. Joining JustFab to promote the brand were celebrities Kimora Lee Simmons, who brought a lot of Twitter followers, and actress Kate Hudson who soon became the face of Fabletics, the company’s athletic wear division.

Boraie Updating New Brunswick – Next Atlantic City!

Omar Boraie began to create his vision for New Brunswick, NJ in 1972, at the young age of 29 years old. The dilapidated town was being deserted, but Boraie envisioned a future for this city, and put his heart into rebuilding the community.

The forty-year long project is nearing completion, and the vision Boraie saw four decades ago is becoming a reality and he is no longer being viewed as that “crazy-builder.”, says NJ Biz. Omar Boraie traveled to America from Egypt as a traveling scholar when he discovered a town he fell in love with and that was New Brunswick. View his full bio on crunchbase.

New Brunswick Project Nearing Completion

Boraie’s work began when he started buying the run-down buildings on Albany Street. Today the new structure is known as Albany Street Plaza Tower One. Brilliant dreamers are often told they are crazy, and “crazy” becomes the key word for “success”. The term crazy is like pumping adrenaline into the heart, waking up every nerve ending and injecting the energy needed for success.

Albany Street Plaza Tower One is 25-stories high, with 121 residential units and over 40,000 square feet of office units, plus 10,000 square feet of retail stores. Not to worry about parking as the office space, and residential units provide 400 parking spaces. The homes have amenities offering barbecue areas, pet walking paths.

The decision to move forward with Boraie’s New Brunswick vision is partially due to Johnson & Johnson’s decision not to leave the area, but stay and address the issues the city was facing. Dick Sellers, the president of Johnson & Johnson, deserves so much credit for this transformation of New Brunswick being the town you see today. Others involved in the transformation would be John Heldrich and John Lynch, and Mayor James Cahill. Also receiving accolades is Rutgers University, New Brunswick Development Corporation.

The city has proven its vitality before coming back from previous economic difficulties, therefore, it is believed Atlantic City can make another comeback. The city is preparing to reinvent itself once more with plans to expand the Steel Pier. This Steel Pier provides entertainment, rides, food and beverages which bring people and revenue.

The Pier Shops cater to the 25-year-olds and beyond. Relaxed atmosphere and an area inviting for the “shirtless” sunbathing visitors.

Tropicana Casino has always brought people and revenues, entertainment and diversification in visitors.

Boraie Development will create the city’s Tourism Invitation. Boraie plans to build and improve the housing and retail development in Atlantic City.

These plans will undoubtedly launch huge interest in this dream coming to fruition.

Fabletics Can Keep The Difficult Pace With Such Heavy Hitters As Amazon.

It has been acknowledged for a many years as being reasonable, from the consumer’s opinion, that if the cost for a product is viewed as being high-priced, that this in one way or another must correlate to the product being produced with unrivaled quality. In the better part of those comparisons, the consumer will discover, on the contrary, that this is not an intellectual mind-set for economically feasible purchases. A descending movement in the economy has directed patrons to seek alternative approaches in their pursuit of quality merchandise. Consumers will now seek out merchandise that has lists of ratings or comments associated with it, rich and distinctive designer patterns, and to attempt to procure from outlets that will inquire if the shopper has had a pleasant experience with their purchase, even if that purchase was made at a lesser cost.

 

The up and coming fashion enterprise known as Fabletics is a high variety, fashionable approach to clothing that numerous patrons use with high confidence for their trendy workout clothes, and they’re very much loved by their shoppers. The fashion enterprise Fabletics was brought into the spotlight by the distinguished actress and creator of the company, Kate Hudson, in 2013, with supplementary aid given by Mr. Don Ressler and Mr. Adam Goldenberg. Fabletics is all the rage with their patrons as a merchandise outlet that is vastly trendy with today’s fashion guidelines. It is this remarkably trendy facet of the merchandise that is the underlying principle behind Fabletics’ steady hold on the clothing category called “activewear.” The trendy outlet known globally as Amazon, provides a multiplicity of merchandise, including clothing, and it has grabbed onto 20% of the clothing category online. Fabletics also has flourished to grow to a $250 million trend setting enterprise within a period of less than five years. The enterprise Fabletics uses a systematically pioneering purchasing policy that supplies a unique and vast selection of fashionable items at their online outlets, as well as to the physical Fabletics’ locations.

 

Fabletics has a purchase plan that maintains an eye on what shoppers are looking for, by documenting their online outlet’s browsing behavior, at each of their many Fabletics outlet locations. This important data is noteworthy because it gives Fabletics truly invaluable information about the variety of wares that visitors are interested in. If a member of the policy looks at any of the merchandise at a Fabletics online outlet location, that browsing history is sent instantly to the physical Fabletics vendors. This is how Fabletics can feasibly maintain their hold on fashion by stocking the identical wares that the browsing history has established that visitors are interested in. This permits for the physical outlets to employ this data to swap out units to on the display to keep up with the changing trends.

 

Other outlet’s physical stores have been shutting down and displaying their wares online. This switch is because visitors browsing at the physical outlets, head online to buy from another business.

EOS A Leader In Lip Balms

For over 7 years EOS has been a leader in the lip balm industry. When they were first introduced celebrities and fans all over the world were seen carrying the bright colorful iconic eggs. Until now not much has been known about the EOS brand and its many creators and inventors. Throughout this article https://www.fastcompany.com/3063333/startup-report/the-untold-story-of-how-lip-balm-upstart-eos-outdid-chapstick

The co-founders and managing partners discuss how EOS came about as well as how it became one of the most popular companies in the world.

Evolution of Smooth.Ca was first established when the co-founder Sanjiv Mehra was looking for a new way to change the beauty world. After much research and dedication he realized the lip balm industry was lacking in unique and interesting flavors and colors. Up until this point most lip balms came in the same flavor as well as the same kind of packaging. Mehra and his team wanted to offer a lip balm that was both unique looking as well as unique tasting.

Each and every EOS lip balm comes in a cool color and unique flavor. Some of the top colors include mint green, red, pink, blue and even white. Some of the more unique flavors include strawberry sorbet, blueberry acai, tangerine, blackberry nectar, vanilla mint and vanilla bean. Aside from the great array of colors and flavors EOS offers a list of high-quality ingredients.

They are sold in a variety of different drug stores and pharmacies and are also widely available online on eBay and Amazon. With so many great products to choose from and such ease and convenience for buying them it is easy to see why EOS is a leader in the lip balm industry.

High Car Payments Can Be A Thing Of The Past If You Work With Ignition Financial

Some don’t know the importance of refinancing their vehicle until they see that their payments are getting harder to pay every month. Even if you have a regular budget that you stick to, anything can happen to that budget, including the loss of money, which may make the budget harder to keep up with. If you are a person who has to stick to a monthly budget, then your car payment is very important. The standard car payments, including full coverage insurance will range from around $200 a month to $500 a month, depending on the type of credit rating the customer has and the interest rates they’re paying.

 

A person who has good credit may see themselves paying $100 a month for their car payments and another $50 or more per month for full coverage insurance, but these types of rates are rare and are only for those who have truly kept up their credit. Good credit can make everything easier, including refinancing a car, but don’t give up if you know that your credit isn’t perfect because refinancing is still a possibility for you and anyone else who has credit issues. If you want to work directly with Ignition Financial, then you’ll see a difference in your car payments.

 

Ignition Financial likes to fulfill the wish that people have when they ask, “can you slash my payments?,” which is a very common question that is asked because many want to save as much money as possible on their car payments. Since car payments are made on a monthly basis, the more money that’s cut from the monthly payments, the more money the customer will save on a yearly basis.

 

Some customers may worry about their credit and may not feel that getting their car refinanced is going to happen, but a lot of people have left Ignition Financial with a smile on their face because they got what they wanted. Not only are cars refinanced at Ignition Financial, they can also make sure that the terms are something that you’ll be pleased with, and you’ll be paying the minimum on your car loan with no markups that or hidden fees within the contract. Stop the high monthly payments on your current car loan by refinancing with Ignition Financial.
