Adam Goldenberg is a successful businessman and the co-CEO of JustFab Inc. Following JustFab’s successful year, Built in LA recognized him as one of the three CEOs you ought to know. In 1999, he sold Gamer’s Alliance to Intermix Media. At the time, the gaming network was two years old. In 2006, Goldenberg established Intelligent Beauty, an internet-branding platform. Subsequently, he created JustFab, four years after founding Intelligent Beauty.
In a short time, JustFab has gained exceptional traction. In 2013, it raised $55 million to enhance its operation. Additionally, the company purchased ShoeDazzle, a shoe discovery service. Presently, its own program for celebrity stylist membership is used in over five countries. The company is also increasing its offerings with new undertakings like Fabletics, an athletic brand.
Speaking on what other entrepreneurs can learn from how he has run JustFab, Adam noted there is the need to understand the market. The company has also adapted well to its business. He went on to posit that they observe data and other crucial information on a daily basis. This strategy helps them to identify any deviations from the norms and undertake corrective actions in time.
Additionally, he asserted that he has been a firm believer of openness within his organization. By sharing numbers with his team, whether good or bad, it helps each one of them to understand the tactical changes that are required. While speaking about their hiring strategy, Adam Goldenberg contended that they focus on the candidate’s passion. This is in addition to focusing on what they sale rather than how to sell it. These factors have enhanced the company’s success in the competitive market.
In August 2014, JustFab raised $85 million in a funding round spearheaded by Passport Special Opportunity Fund. Existing investors like Matrix Partners and Shining Capital also participated in that round. This fund brought the company’s total funding to $ 300 million. It also turned the firm into a unicorn, which is a company that has a valuation of more than $ 1 billion. When asked how he feels to be part of the $1 billion club, Goldenberg noted that they never view themselves as a unicorn. Adam asserted that all the credit should go out to the team of hard working professionals that are committed to creating excellent brands. The team is also dedicated to making the company’s customers happy. Recently, JustFab rebranded to TechStyle Fashion Group. It aims to reinvent the fashion business industry by engaging each customer and delivering trendy outfits at an affordable price.

YouTube beauty blogger Wengie gives viewers tips on how to use everyday objects in their makeup routines.
The first hack is to store your sets of false eyelashes in a pill container. Place a set in each of the day compartments. The next hack is to use a triangular scale ruler to help shape your eyebrows. Use it to mark your shape points with concealer, then blend it together for a clean look. Next, Wengie suggests using products with built-in primer. She uses a Clinique lipstick and says the primer makes it last longer and go on smoother.
Wengie’s next hack is to rub Vaseline on your body before spraying on perfume; this makes the scent last longer and ensures it won’t dry out your skin. Next, she suggests using a fork to create a nose contour. Tame your eyebrows by spritzing an unused toothbrush with hairspray. Crumble expired eye shadow into clear nail polish for a new polish color.
Put a piece of tape on the outer corner of your eye to create an eyeliner stencil. Store your makeup brushes in a straw holder to keep them free of dust. Create your own makeup remover and makeup brush cleanser using baby shampoo, coconut oil, and water. Mash up a ripe strawberry, then use it like toothpaste for whiter teeth. You can also get whiter teeth by rubbing the inside of a banana peel on them.
Cover your roots in a pinch with regular or brow mascara. Make your favorite lipstick metallic by dabbing highlighter powder on top of it. Hold a spoon over your eyelid as you apply mascara so it does not transfer onto your skin and ruin your eye shadow. Draw patterns on a cheap clipboard with hot glue to create your own brush cleaner. Put bobby pins on each side of a blush brush to make your own fan brush.
Cone Marshall has remained bold and focused to delivering solutions to clients in different specialties who are looking for tax and estate litigation experts. The firm has in the recent past seen an increase in clients from other jurisdictions and the New Zealand market has also responded fairly to the changes that have been instilled.

Talk Fusion, the global direct sales leader through video marketing, recently announced a new item of motivation added to the rewards available to the company’s Independent Associates. The formal announcement was made on November 7, 206, in a broadcast for all employees and contract workers to see. The trip award is called ‘Destination: Milan.’ The first Associates awarded this new incentive will receive the money in December, 2017. This award is a powerful motivator for all of the company’s many active Independent Associates.
Milan is a major center for fashion and thus, for premier shopping, eating fine cuisine, and sightseeing trips to explore local culture and history, which stretches back many thousands of years. For those people who are officially qualified to receive this new award, Talk Fusion will pay for air travel and accommodations in a first-class resort hotel. Their spouses are also included in the trip.
Talk Fusion provides a great assortment of incentives for their Independent Associates, such as diamond rings, Rolex watches, and even Mercedes-Benz cars. Of course, fun-filled trips to Florida, Hawaii, and Dubai have already been enjoyed at various times.
The Associates earn extra money by promoting Talk Fusion’s All-In-One Video Marketing Solution and the connected small business opportunity. When they earn the “Diamond” level of achievement, they become eligible for the Milan trip. Reina says there are other incentives possible in the future, based upon the dynamic growth the company has enjoyed in the last few years.
Starting a new business is always a very difficult thing to do. The sad reality is that the vast majority of new businesses fail within a matter of months. This is also the case with tech startups. Eric Pulier is one of the very few people who has been able to consistently have success when it comes to creating new tech startups which become profitable in a short period of time. This is despite all of the competition from other companies that are already established. Eric is now one of the most famous people in the tech startup world. Many people seek him out to get his advice regarding what they should do when they launch their own startup.
Eric is a Harvard graduate. However, it is interesting to note that his degree is not in a field that relates in any way to the field of technology. In fact, Eric had no aspirations to have a career in the tech world. He graduated with a degree in English literature. It was only after he graduated that Eric realized that his destiny was to have a career starting tech companies. He found that there was a great deal of money to be made because the Internet was only going to become more popular. He knew that there was going to be a great demand for many different online businesses. Eric decided to focus on the cloud because he could see that it had a wide variety of applications that had not yet been capitalized on.
Venture capitalists are always trying to do business with Eric. This is because he has proven himself to be a very safe person to invest money with. Investors know that they will most likely get a very large profit if they invest money into one of Eric’s tech startups. It was very hard for Eric to attract investors in the early days of his career. He is happy that he now has many more investors than he knows what to do with. He can choose who he gets involved with to finance his various projects.
It was at quite a young age that Jennifer Walden figured out what it was she wanted to do. This was also helped by the fact that both of her parents were also high achieving and well to do, as her father was a dentist and her mother was a surgical nurse. Their support was a great push for Jennifer to be successful. After high school, Jennifer Walden went on to attend the University of Texas, where she earned her degree in Biology. She later went on to study in Galveston at Texas University, where she managed to successfully acquire her M.D. This is when she went on to work in Manhattan at the Ear, Eye, and Throat Hospital. This opportunity led to an 8 year long stay at the facility, where she worked with Dr. Sherrel Aston and gained a considerable amount of experience.
By 2011, Jennifer’s personal life was becoming a little more demanding, as her family was starting to grow. It was because of this that she ultimately decided she would make a move back to her hometown in Texas to be closer to family. This was not the end of her career though, as she is still a leading plastic surgeon who has since been advancing her career from Houston. Being a top surgeon in the field is a quite demanding job, never mind the added aspect of being a mother and trying to spend time with family. Luckily, Jennifer excels in this type of situation and loves the challenge, which is made a little easier by the extensive amount of support she receives from friends and family.
The high level of success that Jennifer has been able to achieve in her field is testament to her strong work ethic and determination, as plastic surgery is a male dominated field. Jennifer takes a lot of pride in how far she has come, even making it onto the board of directors for the ASAPS. Despite having to balance work time and family time, the level of support and family she has to encourage her will make the journey much more rewarding.
