Adam Goldenberg’s Vision for Fabletics

Fabletics isn’t a new name, but it’s really a household name. The subscription-based online retailer is making a new move, and it’s one that could reap big rewards for Kate Hudson. As the spokesperson for Fabletics, she is the face of the future for the fitness conscious. The brand itself is a big deal for the company, the baby of co-Founder Adam Goldenberg.

While the online sensations has been doing quite well, this retailer is far from done. In fact, Fabletics is now planning to open nearly 100 stores across the country in the next three to five years. Just before spring of 2016, the brand was celebrating the opening of store number seven on entrepreneur.wiki. This is a big deal for those who are in love with the fitness yet fashion conscious.

This is great news for those who want to try on the clothes in person rather than look at them online and make their selection on crosscut.vc. The thought process behind the brick and mortar stores is that the employees will be able to help steer shoppers toward the brand and the subscription service that their original business model encourages. The bonus of the subscription is discounted outfits.

The company still promotes the first outfit is available for just $25, and some of the subscriptions are designed to give them a customizable shopping experience with fashion tips and more. Customers love the program, and for the busy entrepreneur or stay-at-home-parent, this service is a dream. It’s pretty amazing that one could have their wardrobe delivered, right?

The business doesn’t come without its typical challenges that any business would face, but Goldenberg and his partner Don Ressler strive to improve upon customer service and their additional offerings with the program. Today, the company brings in millions in revenue and is growing every day with more offerings and more satisfied customers.

Goldenberg had a passion for entrepreneurship from the age of 15 and was able to sell his first business before he graduated from high school. Goldenberg and his partner Don Ressler met in 2006 when they were both working with Intermix Media. Ressler and Goldenberg launched JustFab together in 2010, and have continued to work together since that time.

Morality Beware, Kyle Bass Predicts Turmoil in China

Kyle Bass, founder of Hayman Capital Management, a hedge fund in Dallas, Texas, expects the Chinese banking system to strain and struggle with their bad loans. The current facts display challenges for China’s 134 city commercial banks. After a forced cleanup of credit unions, in the 1990’s, city commercial banks, scattered from Harbin to Hainan, were created to handle the small lender responsibilities in China. These banks, in recent years have multiplied their risk by dumping money into opaque investment products. One current result is the 90% downturn of profits in 2015 at one lender, China Resources Bank of Zhuhai and Co.

The challenges on the immediate horizon for the Chinese banking industry can not be disputed, however Kyle Bass’s predictions raise a question about his possible involvement. His morally checkered path consists of questionable financial movements. His current scheme is dealing with pharmaceutical companies. First, he “short-sells” their stock and then challenges one or more of the pharmaceutical company’s patents, through his front organization, The Coalition of Affordable drugs. This causes fear in the markets.

The planned and inevitable results are, stock prices go down, Bass makes millions, the pharmaceutical company’s stock goes back up, and their desire to continue to fund research on their drugs goes down. In the end, the people that suffer the most are the patients that need that particular drug to ease their pain, minimize their need for chemotherapy, or to save their life.

According to the article Kyle Bass The Frantic Investments of a Desperate Gambler, Bass is repeating this process with one pharmaceutical company after another. Each time his bank account grows. Considering his past motives for action in his business dealings, it is important to research deeper into China’s current situation, before believing his predictions.

The city banks in China hold 15% of the nation’s commercial assets. They used financial engineering to disguise lending, by buying investments from other investment firms. If these investments go into default, liquidity problems can arise for the small bank. This can cause failure for that particular banking institution and the results can have a domino effect economically in that community.

Kyle Bass’s prediction on China’s small banking situation may have some accuracy, however, considering his history someone may question, “what is in it for him?”

Solo Capital and Sanjay Shah Shines its Light on Autism

Solo Capital Markets was the brain child of its founder Sanjay Shah, a British businessman. Mr. Shah began studying medicine and then decided it was not for him and switched gears and became an accountant. He was employed by several investment and banking type companies including Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley.
Utilizing his experience in the financial world he was able to guide Solo Capital to becoming one of the premier boutique investment companies. He assembled a very experienced team of investment professionals and they set the course to focus on proprietary trading, consulting and sports investments.

Sanjay Shah always had a philanthropic side to his character and personality, but it blossomed after his youngest son was diagnosed with autism and that became his focus. He researched autism and sought to help find a cure and promote awareness. Mr. Shah found through his research that autism is a disability that affects development and is one of the, if not the fastest development disorder in the world. Autism is characterized by development and communication skills difficulties and tosses a quagmire into the mix when it comes to social relationships. Children with autism typically have a narrow but strong field of interests and often experience repetitive behavior. Autism is something that is carried through the victim’s entire life and can be managed.

He founded a foundation called “Autism Rocks” and works to raise funding opportunities through music, more specifically by sponsoring concerts. The first concert his foundation sponsored was held in 2014 and the invitation only event featured the late musician and entertainer Prince. The concerts following have been successful ventures and feature well known musicians, recording artists and disc jockeys.

Mr. Shah is a trustee of the Autism Research Trust, which provides financial donations to the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University. He took on the role of Trustee Director in 2013 and has worked tirelessly to bring awareness to a medical affliction that is largely misunderstood. His efforts have been applauded within the autism community and many families are the recipients of a positive experience through the awareness Sanjay Shah has brought.

The Importance Of Creating A Wikipedia Page for your Business

 

A recent study has established that Wikipedia is a big bureaucracy. This is because it does not give every person the freedom to create and circulate knowledge in addition to decentralizing power. The new study indicates that Wikipedia has shifted from its initial ideals to a conservative corporate bureaucracy that is governed by a few people. The results may be surprising for the enthusiasts of the site. Wikipedia has shunned from creating a top-down management structure for its editors and contributors. One can rank as a super contributor. The position comes with a number of editorial privileges. However, power over contributors should not fall under it.
Simon DeDeo and Bradi Heaberlin, researchers from Indiana University, examined 15 years of Wikipedia data. The data included over 5 million articles build up by contributors numbering into tens of thousands. The researchers found out that Wikipedia is still governed by the iron law of oligarchy. The data also showed that despite of the community growing quickly to nearly 30,000 people; about 89 percent of the basic standards remain the same, halting the growth of Wikipedia page creation. They influence everything ranging from how Wikipedia editors select and edit content to how they interact. About 100 users created these articles during the early days of Wikipedia, mostly before 2004. The basic standards were established as loose standards that were to be changed with time. This change is yet to be effected.

US Money Reserve President Speaks on Eliminating the Penny

There are many forms of currency out there today. These forms of currency are becoming more obsolete due to the massive amount of credit and debit cards that are in use. The modern age is looking down on physical currency, and there are many who are very upset at the penny. There is a big movement in the United States where individuals are trying to get the United States to stop manufacturing pennies. They say that these pennies are costing more to make than they are worth and they costing the government unnecessarily.

There are others who claim that stopping the printing of pennies would greatly disrupt the economy today. They claim that the unbalance from the loss of penny printing would be a ripple effect that would make unnecessary changes in the market. Philip Diehl, U.S. Money Reserve president is claiming that these changes would not affect the marketplace and the penny should be done away with. Diehl also states that only 25 percent of transactions are done with cash anymore. This goes to show that there are less and less people who are using these coins to begin with. This adds to the argument stating that pennies are becoming more obsolete every year.

In his CNBC Squawk Box interview Diehl states that there are very few transactions that would even be affected from the elimination of pennies. Rounding pennies up to the nearest 5 cent would not be something that would make a huge difference. The U.S. government would be able to save money each year not having to print pennies. If the U.S. government were to eliminate the printing of pennies each year the savings would total just over 105 million dollars. This is something that has many individuals in power very interested about this notion that keeps gaining more attention.

Solid Predictions, Solid Financing–Is Kyle Bass Trustworthy?

Kyle Bass has made a huge name for himself in the last seven years through two successful financial predictions, associations with a known socialist, and engineering of the stock market through a legal loophole that got congress on both sides of the political fence jumping like bean-shaped racially insensitive Spanish-speaking pupae. Or Mexican Jumping Beans, for the individual not entirely short-circuited by politically insensitive prose. The point is, Bass has been surprising people and hopping all over the place, and it makes sense to keep an eye on him.

He jumped onto the scene in 2007 when he predicted America’s lending practices vis-a-vis Frannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to lead to the bursting of an economic bubble in the very near future. Lo-and-behold, exactly that happened in 2008, and suddenly everybody was paying attention to Kyle. He decided to double down on his professional trustworthiness by taking on Japan next, and again successfully predicting an economic implosion that resulted in stimulus packages. With this in mind, it makes sense that many agree with his assessment that China will likewise undergo economic bubble-bursting in the near future. Kyle Bass believes this will happen within the next one to two years, and he believes the reason for this is that the Chinese economy has expanded–ostensibly–some 400% in the last eight years. They’ve done this expansion through loans which were made in excess of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Basically, China’s made some bets that can’t be cashed, and the Asian bookies surrounding her are going to be looking for payment.

Is Kyle’s assessment correct? Well, it’s hard to say. Whether or not he’s trustworthy depends a lot on where the observer is coming from. For example, he’s got ties to Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, a well-known Argentinian socialist. But by the by, hedge fund manager Kyle Bass is also an Argentine; so is his relationship to Kirchner benign or implicit? It’s impossible to say from an exterior perspective without hard data.

The other mar/accolade Bass has is his ability to devalue big pharmaceutical stocks and cash in on it legally through a loophole in the American financial system. Bass made a company called The Coalition For Affordable Drugs. The idea was to diminish the cost of medication from big pharmaceuticals. This was successful, and collaterally the stock of big pharmaceutical organizations dropped, and Kyle made a pretty penny. Seems kind of like rigging the game, doesn’t it?

So will Kyle’s predictions about China prove trustworthy? It’s difficult to say. About the only conclusion anybody can really come to is that Bass means business, and he’s got his finger on international financial pulses one way or another.
