Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg are the Co-CEO of TechStyle, the company doing things the uncommon way.

The path of these serial entrepreneurs crossed when they sold their companies to Intermix Media. Don Ressler is one of the pioneers of the e-commerce space; he sold his firm FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix Media in 1997. At almost the same age of 17, Adam Goldberg was selling his company Gamer’s Alliance to the same Intermix Media. Before starting TechStyle, the two highly motivated serial entrepreneurs founded Intelligent Beauty, which went on to inspire the now blossoming TechStyle.

Don Ressler is an established entrepreneur on the web with start-ups that have not only been profitable, but have also become major hits amongst the global online population. He started out with the healthy living website, FitnessHeaven.com. He later co-founded the online performance advertising firm, Alena Media, alongside Adam Goldenberg, the COO of Intermix Media.

The successful platform was eventually purchased by News Corp in 2005, after which the two started Brand Ideas (now known as Intelligent Beauty), a firm focused on building other people’s brands. Under Intelligent Beauty, Ressler was able to successfully launch the weight loss program, Sensa, alongside the one-stop online shop for all things skincare, Dermstore. The third company Intelligent Beauty aided with its brand-building expertise was JustFab, a fashion retailer that runs via customer subscription, which has turned out to be one of Ressler’s greatest successes thus far.

TechStyle Fashion Group is not like other companies. The company has a creative and innovative edge with membership-based clothing, beauty and accessory companies under it. The first company under TechStyle was JustFab. JustFab is a clothing company that enables its members to get athletic clothing and accessories personalized for each member every month. It was JustFab that eventually became TechStyle reflecting the way the co-founders tend to blend technology and fashion. Its headquarters typically depicts the Silicon Valley style with modern, colorful and playful workspaces.

However, the company is not just committed to seamlessly combine fashion and technology they show a consistent commitment to social responsibility as well. As much as the company cares about its members (with clothing that make people feel happy about themselves and their looks), it shows almost equal care for improving lives in the community. The company has hosted some charity projects and events, and have been involved in community gardens and other projects that improve lives. The Cinderella Project is an example of an event that they hosted for a charity group. The group donates accessories and gowns to students who want to attend prom but are handicapped because of finances.

Adam Goldberg as Co-CEO specializes in data, margins, internal systems, and marketing for the company while the other Co-CEO Don Ressler specializes in grooming the company’s talents, the vision, and the customer experience. Their roles are pivotal as TechStyle claims more ground in the future.

The creative industry of fashion has a lot of room for new ways of designing clothes. It also explores some different business models to profit from. The reason that Don Ressler’s TechStyle company has been such a hit with people is because of all of the creativity that has gone into bringing the company to life. While the products are more than worth bragging about, the bigger selling feature is the method of marketing and selling. One of the ways that it reaches out to customers is by having them sign up and pay for membership while it collects all of the information it needs to give the customer the type of items they want.

The marketing is probably one of the best aspects of the company. The way they approach marketing does not involve leaving it in the hands of the ad agency. As a matter of fact, they take the time to do all of the marketing on their own so that they can personally reach out to the customers and connect with them. They take on many different platforms for marketing. There is the television commercial marketing. They also upload videos to Linkedin and other social media platforms.

The best way to market a company these days is by actually connecting with the audience. One thing a fashion designer and business owner like Don Ressler can do is get involved in discussions on topics related to the industry that they are getting involved in. For instance, Don Ressler can talk about the different aspects of fashion. He can share his insights on style with others who have taken an interest in style. For one thing, people are going to be asking a lot of questions about what they should wear.

Given that Don Ressler and his company TechStyle believe in freedom of fashion, he is going to encourage people of all sizes and shapes to dress in the way they want. The only thing he encourages is that they wear something that will help them feel confident and valuable so that they will be able to take on their lives in a much better fashion.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey who are co-founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media were arrested from their homes in October, 2007 in the night and they were jailed by the then Maricopa County Sheriff.

It was later held that both journalists were wrongfully arrested. They were both compensated with a total of $3.75 million which they gladly donated to fund the activities of human and migrant rights organizations in Arizona. Both of them are being celebrated for the singular act of selfless contribution to humanity.

There are so many organizations that fight against abuse of migrant rights in the United States that you can join either join or support. These organizations are doing a great job and they need volunteers and donations to fund their activities.

If you do not have the time to become a volunteer, you can contribute your quota by giving voluntary donations.

What goes around comes around. You never can tell whose right will be abused next. It could be yours or that of someone very close to you. One of such organizations is Border Angels. This organization offers free immigration consultations and services in both English and Spanish. It was founded by Enrique Morones. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Border Angels distinguishes itself among other human right organizations by offering additional services like prevention of avoidable deaths and reduction of harm through day laborer outreach, border rescue stations and desert water drops.

This organization also raises awareness of issues bordering on immigrations, border issues and undocumented migrants.

In 1986, there was a trip to the Canyons in North County , where Enrique saw children, women and families living in a disturbing manner in even a more disturbing environment. This was the spark that started the voluntary works and it snowballed into the establishment of Border Angels.

The organization is headquartered in San Diego, California. With tremendous donations and volunteers from well-meaning Americans, the organization has been living up to its motto of “Saving people’s lives and making a difference”.

Over the years, Border Angels have been able to reduce the number of deaths along Californian border by providing well maintained water stations in the desert and in several other ways. This became necessary since 1994 when the implementation of Operation Gatekeeper began. It led to increase in military presence in the United States/Mexico border.

Many years of hardship push thousands of people from Latin America and Mexico to risk their lives coming into the United States through the border without any form of documentation in search of a better life.

A lot of these immigrants see the United States as a land of opportunities. Indeed, America is a land of opportunities but America is not as receptive as it used to be.

Every year, more policies are put in place to make it difficult for immigrants to get into America. It is rather unfortunate that since the inception of operation Gatekeeper, over 10,000 people have lost their lives during the journey because it is fraught with inadequate water, inadequate food and even extreme weather condition.

This situation is what the organization is trying to change. You can also volunteer or donate to support Border Angels and to save lives. For more information visit borderangels.org

Making considerable returns from the investments in stock markets from across the globe is not an easy task. It is risky and needs a lot of strategic planning to make significant returns out of it. However, it is also important to note that stock markets have a lot of potential as an investment tool and people continue to make big money out of it.

Igor Cornelsen, who has served in the banking industry of Brazil for long is now a stock market and investment consultant. He is hopeful about the stock market investments in Brazil as it is a fast-growing economy and has a lot of potential.

Even as the country witnessed some hustle in the last few years under the previous government of Dilma Rousseff, it has now stabilized, and the political, as well as financial situation in the country, is getting better. Read more: Igor Cornelsen gives you the basics on Brazilian banking

According to iCrowdNewsWire, Igor has some advice for the investors who are considering adding Brazilian stocks to their portfolio. Igor says that it is essential for the people to know that the Brazilian economy is highly reliant on its banks, and the moves made by the bank must be followed to understand which way the market would move.

He says that the investors must acquaint themselves with the banking basics of Brazil to make smart investments that help them get considerable returns in the future. Igor currently stays in the United States in South Carolina and heads a firm by the name of Bainbridge Inc, which provides investment and financial consultancy, primarily focusing on damaged stocks investment.

Igor Cornelsen also added to his advisory about investment in Brazil that the investors should strictly follow what the trading partners of Brazil are doing and how their economies are faring.

China is highly relevant in this context as it is the most significant trading partner of Brazil, and its growth would automatically trickle down on Brazil as well.

Igor says that once the currency of Brazil can get out of its overvalued mode and attain its real value, the world market would become a level playing field for the exporters and manufacturers in Brazil.

The Game of Thrones has not just been an entertaining film to watch but also a big lesson when it comes to cyber security. As its seven season draws to an end, the last showdown between the dead and the living also draws closer. As you keenly watch Jon Snow together with his allies as they prepare their forces for the coming war, it is clear that there is similarities that exist between the nights watch defenses and cyber security teams when it comes to the real world. Night’s Watch comprises of a family of unsung heroes who have sworn to safeguard the Seven Kingdoms safe from the northern border of Westeros. It is particularly their duty to defend the Wall against the invading forces of wildings, white walkers and wights. This can be compared to the responsibilities of the cyber security teams of today when it comes to keeping the corporate data safe from cruel cyber attackers.

The Night’s Watch has taught people a lot about being aware of zombie accounts. For one, it has shown that once an employee has left your organization, their digital account can still be a threat to security. According to research, more than half of ex-employees have zombie accounts. These accounts can be therefore used to access corporate data and apps. Cyber security teams should therefore ensure there are no active accounts of ex-employees in order to mitigate this increasing risk. The Game of Thrones has also taught us to take potential threats seriously. It is important for the leadership of any organization to make the appropriate investments so as to fight the increasing security immediately.

There are two categories of people in the world; the first one is of those who perceive life as a beautiful bed of roses that’s worth spending every moment on while the second category is of those who take life as a bad and long stormy night full of tosses and turns. One of the main reasons why people in the second category perceive life that way is depression. The problem has always been subject to scrutiny and a whole lot of misconceptions. Whenever there is mention, the society tends to think that it’s a problem which exists in fiction only, but the truth is that it’s real and millions of people across the world struggle it. According to a recent report by ADAA, 6.7 % of the total population in the US is of people who go through depression. However, it’s not that obvious to everyone as some people tend to create and hide behind masks of happy people. Therefore, it is a disease and not a disability which means if people change their attitude towards it; it’s possible for people with depression to get well. Another condition which is commonly misunderstood is borderline personality disorder. Victims of the disease tend to inflict pain on themselves to deal with emotional pain. They also think that everyone wants to hurt them. It commonly comes as a result of past traumatic experiences. Instead of judging them, the best way to help them cope is to accept that it is a sickness and offer them support during therapies. There are many platforms which provide support for people with depression, BPD and other mental conditions such as Talk Space.

About Talk space

It is a virtual messaging app which links individuals to certified therapists. It comes in handy especially for people going through tough times in their marriages or general life but are afraid to seek help because they want privacy. Through Talk Space, such people can let it all out at the touch of a button without feeling restrained, and the therapists are always available to respond to their texts. Users are asked a few personal questions and are invited to fill a form which is then used to link them with therapists who suits them best.
