JustFab is an online fashion retailer that is revolutionizing the fashion shopping experience, bringing stylish outfits at an affordable price to customers around the world. The founder and co-CEO of JustFab, Adam Goldenberg has made this company popular not because he started it with advanced knowledge of fashion design, but because he is a fun-loving, creative individual who is always willing to bring new ideas to the table. He and his colleague Don Ressler have hired some of the best fashion consultants, including Kimora Lee Simmons as president and creative director, and have received funding from some top investors, including Josh Hannah, who have allowed the company to take off and market its products internationally. Adam Goldenberg has made JustFab a top-notch fashion outlet going up against the likes of Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren.
Adam Goldenberg was a creative marketer all the way from childhood. His first interest was gaming, but he decided to turn it into a business when he built his own website for Gamers Alliance, a company that advertised different gaming websites and connected gamers to their niches. Intermix Media, the company that founded MySpace became very interested in Goldenberg and his business, and hired him as Vice President of their strategic planning division. Goldenberg put his ideas to work for Intermix Media, helping them explore new markets and after just 2 years working for them, he became the youngest Chief Operating Officer for a publicly traded company on en.wikipedia.org.
Goldenberg had many wonderful experiences with Intermix, but none more so than meeting up with Don Ressler, another young entrepreneur who had started up his own fitness brand company Fitness Heaven, and the two became friends and partners in future endeavors. Goldenberg and Ressler left Intermix Media in 2005, deciding to start fresh with their own company. The fashion industry is what appealed to Adam Goldenberg, although he admitted when he got in he knew very little about the terminology. Still, he and Ressler decided it would be fun and worth the risk to try, so they started up Intelligent Beauty, a beta company for trying out new fashion product lines.
In 2010, Goldenberg and Ressler decided to go big by starting up a company that would deliver a fun unique shopping experience. And that’s when JustFab was born, a new enterprise that would change the online retail scene at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/25/for-intelligent-beautys-a_n_1624707.html. Goldenberg and Ressler’s friend Kimora saw the potential of this company, and she brought her ideas and twitter followers over to it, helping it become a very popular brand. The company has been able to generate millions worth in revenue since.
Sam Chaudhary Had an educational app startup in mind and traveled to California to conduct his research in order to make one important discovery. In order to make it successful he had to discover what teachers considered the worst part of being a teacher. he aimed to create proactively create a solution to their problems in order to create a positive culture with the classrooms and schools.

The app is also utilize in the over 90% of the school districts and operates in over 180 countries around the world. last summer, more than half a million people downloaded the app each day during the back-to-school season. This number is above and beyond the count downloadable apps like Yelp and Tinder.
Even though Chaudhary did not imagine the level of success his startup would experience from the beginning, he and his cofounder were able to raise $1.6 million in seed funding when the startup company was first introduced in 2012. During the following year, ClassDojo was able to attract $8.5 million in first round venture funding. Two years later, the company performed their second round of venture funding and raised an additional $21 million. Educational professionals, venture investors and analysts alike were obviously impressed with the quality of the app and fully supported the company’s hopeful achievements.
ClassDojo is an communication platform that is similar to a social media platform. It allows teachers, parents and students to connect inside and outside of the classroom on a consistent basis. Students are empowered and encouraged to participate in class and behave well by receiving points as incentives on the app. Students are also able to share their classroom work with their parents by downloading their assignments.
Parents can monitor the increase or decrease in their child’s account balance in order to evaluate the activity in the classroom as well as review their childs’ assignments in order to identify areas where the child needs additional assistance. Parents can collaborate with their childs’ teachers to All of this can be accomplished without the parent physically being in the classroom, which is empowering for concerned parents.
Teachers can communicate with parents in order to provide feedback on a regular basis as opposed to waiting for periodic parent and teacher conferences. Teachers also have the ability to utilize the app in order to create a community of support, encouragement and collaboration that is beneficial to the students. Chaudhary may have needed more than 90 days and visa to get the app created, but it appears he has identified what makes a teacher’s job difficult and successfully created a solution that not only makes the role of the instructor easier, it also strengthens the communication between all parties involved.

An article posted on Bustle.com investigated another in the long line of quality hair care products from WEN by Chaz, with a little twist. The product reviewed is called a cleansing conditioner, the article (http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened), dubbed it as an all-in-one product. A shampoo, conditioner and styling treatment are the components of this Wen by Chaz product.
The twist? The author of the article, Emily McClure, actually did the product evaluation personally. Not only did McClure use and evaluate, she also included a photo journal covering a full week. Along with the daily pictures was the evaluation of this Wen by Chaz conditioner, to go with each corresponding day.
The “Wen” line is the child of Chaz Dean, who serves a client list that resembles a who’s who of Hollywood headliners. With a background in cosmetology, Dean finds himself doing something he loves, and doing it well. How well? That is evidenced by the great success of this hair care product line.
Wen by Chaz is now a recognized and trusted name. The product finds itself on the shelves of popular hair care stores like Sephora, on networks like QVC and online sites like Amazon. The wide range of products offered by Wen and the intentional focus of keeping this product line as natural and healthy as possible are leading reasons why Wen by Chaz has met such success.
The results of the aforementioned article reviewing the Wen by Chaz all-in-one cleansing conditioner was positive. If there was anything to note, it was the time needed to use this product properly. With that in mind, the article suggested that this product may not be the very best of the Wen line for women who don’t have the time on a daily basis, so a product for every day use may be a better option. No surprise that this is yet another winning product from Wen, in this particular case there is an eye witness account to the fact.

Securus Technologies The company has continued to provide a number of different technology enhancements to correctional facilities across the country. Today, hundreds of facilities use the company’s products and services, which are ultimately used by millions of inmates and family members across the globe.
The primary product that the company has been selling today has been a unique video visitation service. This video visitation service allows a prison to set up a terminal within their facility where an individual can communicate face-to-face with a loved one, friend, or even their attorney. Through the use of this system, an inmate can see a family member on a more regular basis without requiring them to come all the way to the prison and without having to deal with the frustration and anxiety that comes with live visitation. Any family member can use the system as long as they are approved by the prison system and have a phone, tablet, or computer that allows for video visitation.
While the technology is often used for simple conversations, Securus has revealed many surprising ways that inmates are using the technology today. One of the most rewarding ways is that it has allowed prisoners to continue to help their children with their homework. Various prisoners at facilities across the country have children that are in school and need a similar level of help when it comes to getting prepared for school.
As opposed to having to go to a tutor, they are now able to link in their imprisoned parent, whom is then able to go through assignments on a daily basis. This can help to ensure that a prisoner and their family member continue to feel the same bond that they would if the prisoner was not longer imprisoned. In the future it is also possible that a prisoner could use the technology to further improve their own education by video chatting into a live classroom setting.
