Online Retail Takes Off
Online retail is something we take for granted today, but it was hard work doing everything needed to bring up off the ground. Much of that hard work as done by Adam Goldenberg. Originally known for his websites making millions of dollars in the early 2000s, he quickly made a name for himself when he partnered up with Don Ressler. This relationship has had a serious impact on the world of online shopping.
JustFab Is Front And Center
There honestly isn’t anything more prominent in the push towards online retail than the work down at JustFab. Enlisting the aid for Kimora Lee Simmons, Adam Goldenberg went to work trying to create one of the most popular sites he could imagine. With all of the success he saw it was only natural to take that success and try to bring it into something that would generate even more money. This is where he got the idea of Fabletics from. It would take a similar focus as JustFab, but the focus would be something entirely new.
Extending The Success
Fabletics was going to be a success from its early stages. The work of Kate Upton made it possible to turn this brand into something very few people would ever recognize. Like JustFab, the brand started out on the internet but it grew yo be so much more than what it originally was. Now, we can see that the brand is something more than typically expected. There are millions of fans of Fabletics and they are willing to spend great amounts of money at the website entrepreneur.wiki. In fact, they have even managed to promote physical stores where you can buy the clothes found on the website in person.
Watching Over His Empire
Adam Goldenberg and his business partner Don Ressler have managed to create one of the most important and most respected names in fashion today. If it wasn’t for their work, we simply wouldn’t see much of what we now recognize today. It wasn’t an easy risk to take and it wasn’t something people took for granted. Goldenberg will be remember for years to come thanks to the accomplishments he has laid out. From the 2000s until now he has done more fashion and ecommerce than just about anyone else to take on the business and he’s still doing everything to advance it.
Dick DeVos is an investor and always has new business ideas he’s willing to try out as the owner of The Windquest Group, a Grand Rapids company that owns shares in many energy, manufacturing and non-profit entities. The company recently bought a brewing company that won several awards for best tasting liquor products. But Dick and his wife Betsy, who is also the new US Secretary of Education have also given away millions of dollars to help needy areas of Michigan. Most of their gifts have gone to education, but others have gone to business coalitions, churches, art and science exhibits and political activists. The DeVos’s recently announced their total giving amounted to over $139 million in lifetime donations.
Dick DeVos started his career in multilevel marketing, the model that his family’s company Amway Corporation has used for 60 years. He was director of different sales operations in the company in his early days, and then became a vice president and manager of foreign offices in the 1980s. Dick’s father Richard DeVos Sr. also purchased the controlling stakes in the NBA’s Orlando Magic in 1991 and Dick briefly served as the team’s President from 1991 to 1993. When Richard DeVos Sr. retired as CEO of Amway in 1993, Dick stepped into the role and soon the company was generating billions in international sales. Their revenue exceeded $4 billion in 2002, the final year that Dick ran the company. After that year Dick resigned as CEO to attend to other matters.
Dick and Betsy have worked to change the environments for both Michigan public and private schools. Through their foundation they’ve not only given to private schools, they’ve also started initiatives to help families afford private and charter schools. Eventually they decided to start a school of their own that not only provided high quality education to students, but also inspired them to pursue their dreams including flying. This school is hosted at the Gerald Ford Airport and is known as the West Michigan Aviation Academy. But beyond education, Dick DeVos has worked to change the business climate in Grand Rapids and even bring initiatives to attract business to the city through efforts at the Grand Action Committee.
Dick and Betsy haven’t just sought to enact reforms through financial gifts, they’ve been active in politics for many years and held positions including Betsy’s tenure as chairperson of the state’s Republican Party. Dick DeVos wasn’t pleased with the direction of the state’s economy under then governor Jennifer Granholm, so he sought to unseat her during the 2006 election. That effort failed by a 14-point margin, but he wasn’t about to give up in mobilizing Michigan’s grassroots activists to stand up for lower business regulations. In 2012, DeVos helped get lawmakers to pass a right-to-work bill that Governor Schneider signed into law.

Mike Baur is a man with an idea, a great idea. After spending 20 years in the Swiss banking industry and rising to an executive position, he decided to pursue something else. He wanted to take a different tack on life’s waterways. Baur decided that he could do more good for more people by mentoring those young business men and women and showing them how they could achieve success and how to climb the same stairs he had earlier climbed in banking.
He began the Swiss Startup Factory, a company dedicated to showing others the way to success. He realized that many good concepts and business ideas are never fully developed by young entrepreneurs, largely owing to financial problems. His idea was ingenious. Baur would hold competitions for business ideas and concepts and accept the best of these into his Swiss Startup Factory. When accepted the winners would receive a substantial sum for business development, Baur’s mentoring, office space, secretarial assistance, meeting space, and a large list of investors wanting to get in on the ground floor of the next big idea.
Baur began the Swiss Startup Factory in 2014 searching for digital entrepreneurs and those in the newly established “Fintech” industry. His three-month accelerator program is located in Zurich and is ready to help all the winners who are chosen after entering the program.
Mike Baur realizes that creating capital is the first and most necessary step in starting a successful business. He relies on his years of experience working for UBS and Clariden Leu in Switzerland to help all those interested groups pursuing their dreams. One requirement for admission into the program is that the newly formed company must include one other person in the business structure.
Baur is drawing together a group of investors, business people, and movers and shakers from Switzerland like tennis champion and Grand Slam winner, Stan Wawrinka, to make the Swiss Startup Factory a profitable plant producing viable ideas and life changing innovations.
Baur’s concept is offering opportunities to everyone with a great idea. His concept is about sharing and not about the struggle between the entrepreneur and the party providing the capital that previously had complete control over the venture.

When it comes to his entrepreneurial efforts, Eric has always stuck to technology, as it his by far his strongest area.

Many of us know George Soros as an avid investor who amassed a massive amount of wealth by investing in markets where others were too afraid to invest. In fact, his mind-boggling predictions have become a stuff of the legend. However, it is also interesting to note that George Soros is one of the most generous philanthropists. Besides, he also goes all-out to support presidential candidates who matters to him most. Several times, he has publicly stated that his donations for presidential candidates on nytimes.com can mean a matter of life and death for most people in America and around the world.
In 2004, George Soros donated nearly $27 Million to support John Kerry in his presidential campaign against George W. Bush. In fact, Soros hates war, therefore he also tried to stop George Bush from going to war in Iraq. Instead, he believed in gradual reforms through infrastructure and education. Unfortunately, the Republican candidate won resulting in thousands of American soldiers and countless citizens around the world to feel the traumatic experience of war.
It seems that George Soros is feeling the same pressure, once again. This time, he wants to stop Donald Trump from becoming American President. His funding is even more intense compared to the previous funding, in 2004. Until now, George Soros has spent nearly $25 Million in favor of the initiatives to support Hillary Clinton. Experts believe that the funding will increase as the election days approach. It is also notable that George Soros went into the background after the 2004 presidential election. Therefore, his commitment towards Hillary’s cause becomes evident by the Millions that he has poured in her campaigns.
According to George Soros, this time it’s again a matter of life and death for many more people around the world. His funds will help his long time friend, Hillary Clinton, to thwart efforts of Trump. He has also accused Trump for doing the work of ISIS by spreading hate in the American community. Such comments by George Soros makes sense because he is known to fund nonprofits and charities on Bloomberg, which focus on immigrant reforms, criminal justice and religious tolerance. In the past three decades, George Soros has given nearly $13 Billion to human right activists. He has also spent heavily on bringing democratic reforms in the East European Countries. In addition, his massive funding for healthcare organizations is also well-known to the public.
Under these circumstance, it is not surprising for analysts to think that the George Soros of 2004 is back in action on Time. It seems that the intensity is also back because George Soros does not want a person like Donald Trump in the office, who represents everything that George Soros has fought against all his life.

Keith Mann is an entrepreneur and an activist for animals. He has been an activist since he has seen the abuse that is done to animals. Among the experiences he’s had was going to the slaughterhouse in order to see how the animals are treated in order to sell as meat. It was such a haunting experience and a wake up call to him. He has decided that he is going to become an activist for animals so that he could contribute to the cause for seeing them being treated in a more humane manner. Animal abuse is something that is very horrifying to witness.
One thing that Keith Mann has mentioned in an interview is the education system. The education system is rather incomplete when it comes to certain issues. When he learned about these issues with animal abuse, it has changed his attitudes towards animals and meat. One thing that MAnn believes in when it comes to the evolution of humanity is that it grows as it shows compassion for the people that are very vulnerable. Only then, will humanity be able to consider itself evolved. As of right now, a lot of humanity preys on the weak.
Among other experiences that Keith Mann has was spending time in prison cells with different types of inmates to interview them. He has talked to a lot of people that believed that it is acceptable to be violent in order to get something out of the activity. He has noticed how those same people were okay with animal violence in laboratories. They didn’t even care about the damages that it has caused people. Keith Mann himself would not approve of violence even if he had something to gain from it. He also understands that experiments done on other animals have no bearing on the health of humans.
