Fabletics Takes on Amazon?

It would take a great deal of chutzpah, for a business to consider going head to head with the online giant, Amazon. However, this is, in fact, the plan for Fabletics, an athleisure company that has become synonymous with Hollywood actress Kate Hudson. Founded in 2013, Fabletics is as an online subscription retailer, and purveyor of women’s sportswear, footwear, and accessories. The company, which is headed up by Co-founders Kate Hudson, Don Ressler, Adam Goldberg, and Chief Marketing Officer, Kristen Dykstra went from being an obscure startup to a $250-million-dollar company, making Fabletics one of the most sought-after women’s athleisure companies online.

 

As far as competing with Amazon, Fabletics is primarily focused on one small portion of the online giant’s market share, the fashion e-commerce market, which makes up 20 percent of Amazon’s annual sales revenue. Bear in mind, this is not the first time that Fabletics has gone head to head with a competitor; they have successfully competed against popular brands like Under Armour and Lululemon. So what makes Fabletics so popular? Its simple, the company uses their subscription service to market products that not only appeal to their customers but also, encourages company loyalty. In fact, a significant percentage of the company’s sales are derived from repeat customers.

 

Obviously, competing with Amazon is akin to the story of David and Goliath, but one has to admire the ambition of a startup, so confident in their brand, that they would be willing to give it a try. Of course, Fabletics is not relying solely on online sales; the company has opened several brick and mortar locations, intended to complement their online presence. According to several reports, the brick and mortar locations will not only drive foot traffic to their stores but also, bolster their already successful subscription service by 25 percent.

 

How successful will Fabletics be in luring away Amazon customers? Well, it’s probably to early tell, but one thing is for certain, Fabletics has enjoyed year over year sales growth since the company was launched, in 2013. So, even if they don’t tap into Amazon’s fashion e-commerce market, they are still one of the most successful online startups to date. If this article has piqued your interest in Fabletics, you’re encouraged to visit one of their retail locations, or visit them online, where you can take the company’s lifestyle quiz to help you find the Fabletics gear, that’s just right for you.

A Synopsis of Cryptocurrency Market Performance with Jordan Lindsey

Cryptocurrencies continue to dominate investment headlines and online money making discussions among private investors.

There’s a very simple reason. In 2012, a single bitcoin was worth $15. In December of 2017, one bitcoin was worth nearly $20,000. Gains of that order of speed and magnitude just don’t happen with standard distribution frequency. It was a rapid rise, of a technology kick started by financial freedom seeking idealists and techno savvy individuals responding to an 8 page whitepaper written under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.

Things went great for several years.

But then several things happened beginning in December, 2017. The Chicago Board Options Exchange and its competitor the Chicago Mercantile Exchange both launched bitcoin futures during that month.

Against the high optimism of the bulls that helped to run the market from its $997 price on January 1st, 2017 to its $19,367 high on December 16th, professional investors and clearinghouses found themselves realizing the fulfillment of what they saw coming all along. The bull run stalled, contract volume became slim and then short momentum grew as the price per bitcoin was more than halved on February 1st, falling to $9052.

Fueled by confirmed fears about the vulnerability of the cryptocurrency to wide volatility price fluctuation, further bearish sentiment helped the price sink to the $5900 range on February 5th.

As an explanation for the turn of events, analysts have pointed to the newness of the markets and the need for them to mature. There was widespread sentiment among professional investors and analysts that the launch of futures in December, 2017 would provide that stability. What seems to have happened instead is that it burst a rapidly growing bubble and resulted in not only bitcoin’s decline but that of other alt coins as well.

Litecoin with a high of $321 on December 11th traded as low as $106 on February 6th. Ethereum was at $1321 on January 8th. It dropped to $571 on February 6th as well.

Ripple spiked from $0.23 on December 4th to $2.81 on January 1st, only to lose its earlier gains, trading at $0.60 early on February 6th.

Market volatility remains a critical factor in the short term outlook on the performance of bitcoin and other alt coins.

Elysium Health: Improving People’s Well-Being

With the rising cost of healthcare in the United States, there are many people who want to invest in healthier life choices. Elysium Health is a consumer science brand that seeks to help people live healthier, longer.

Cellular health is a critical aspect of living a healthy lifestyle. However, this is an area that few people worry about. Elysium Health has a product that can help clients support their cellular health.

Why Diet Matters

One of the most important aspects of living a healthy lifestyle is the type of food that you eat. Some people eat mostly processed food throughout the day. As a result, their bodies do not get enough nutrients and vitamins that they require.

A healthy diet should be comprised of natural food choices. Some people complain about the cost of such food. However, it is much less expensive to purchase healthy food now than it is to deal with a chronic illness later in life.

Exercise

Another critical factor in maintaining strong cellular health is exercise. There are some people who do not spend much time exercising during the week. But regular exercise is a critical aspect of maintaining muscle mass and bone density.

A proper exercise plan should consist of both resistance and cardiovascular training. Although it is difficult to get accustomed to a new exercise plan, you should find the time to incorporate one into your daily routine.

Basis

In addition to a healthy diet and regular exercise, supplements can be a useful way to help your well-being. Basis is a supplement sold by Elysium Health. Basis works by increasing levels of NAD+ in our cells. This critical coenzyme is essential to our cellular processes. As we age, levels of NAD+ decline and those cellular processes break down. But Basis maintains higher levels of NAD+ and supports cellular health as a result.

All the Factors that Go into the Healthiest Water and How Waiakea Stacks Up

There are a ton of factors that influence the health of the water. While many people do believe that drinking bottled water is automatically okay, there are a lot of things that they are not aware of that might be doing them more harm than good. However, many people are not aware of all of the poison they are putting in their body from a company that is supposed to be offering some of the cleanest water available. Fortunately, there is the internet that offers people a lot of information about the bottled water companies including where they get their water from.

People have even started catching on to the more premium waters that have electrolytes and other forms of enhancements in order to make it better for the person. However, there are actually two types of companies that sell these kinds of water. One type is the company that puts the water through a filtering and ionizing process and then artificially adds electrolytes. These types of waters often find themselves with a high ph level. Then there are the water companies that offer people some of the highest quality of water from the springs. These waters have been taken from the source with all of the nutrients added in.

When it comes to Waiakea, this comes from a volcanic source. As a matter of fact, people can take pride in saying that they drink Hawaiian volcanic water. Many people find this to be a rather interesting thing to say. Another good thing about this type of water is that it comes from a company that is doing everything it can to help the environment. It is promoting health in many different ways. They want people to be healthy and they want the environment to be healthy. Therefore, they do everything they can to make sure that they are getting the type of water they need with the electrolytes.

Louis Chenevert: the Visionary Leader

The CEO should be the company’s steward, leaving it better than he found it. These are words the current CEO of UTC, Gregory Hayes keeps reminding his employees. He says it is important that with every task employees carry out, they do it knowing it impacts not only to the company’s immediate aim which is making profit but also the company’s future. This is a lesson he learned from his predecessor; Louis Chenevert.

Louis Chenevert was named the CEO of UTC, United Technologies Corpporation, in 2008. During his reign, he saw the acquisition of the turbofan engine from Patt and Whitney which turned the company’s future for the better. This engine is currently used in over 70 aircrafts owned by 14 airlines. This engine not only changed UTC’s future, it also changed the airline industry. Reducing the fuel consumption of aircrafts by up to 16% and their emissions by 50%, the Turbofan engine they acquired has revolutionized the industry.

Louis Chenevert’s success in changing the industry did not begin when he was the CEO of UTC. It began when he invested in the design and development of the jet engine decades before his appointment. He gave 10 billion that went a long way in developing the engine. In doing this, he was following his desire to revolutionize the industry. And he succeeded. He also made the company a driving force in the county’s economy. Following their expansion, UTC created 5000 new positions and employed over 25000 new employees.

There really is no point in hopping to expand a company when the people you are working with remain stagnant. Louis Chenevert knew that for UTC to grow, the employees would have to grow themselves as well. As a result, he came up with an employee scholar program, this initiative helped several employees to further their education. As a result, when the time came for UTC to expand, they were ready for the expansion.

They say every strong building has a strong foundation. For UTC to go global, the person laying the foundation had to do a thorough work. Louis Chenevert’s vision helped lay this foundation. It has made UTC what we know it as today.

Jeunesse Global: Behind the Promotion of the Company’s Mind-Enhancing Drink

When Jeunesse Global executive Randy Ray first told a group of the company’s top distributors that it would soon be unveiling the first health drink in the world that was proven to increase mental acuity and the ability of users to focus, many in the audience were skeptical. However, as time went on, it became clear that the somewhat lofty claims being made by the head of Jeunesse Global marketing were to be taken seriously. Today, the company can lay claim to the title of being the only company in the world that has successfully brought to market an energy drink that is scientifically proven to increase concentration, alertness and even some measures of cognitive ability.

With its M1nd energy drink, the company has transcended the energy drink category, creating a product that has many of the best properties of drinks like Red Bull while also containing some of the salutary properties of prescription drugs, such as Ritalin or Adderall. M1nd has been scientifically demonstrated to significantly increase the ability of users to focus for long periods of time. It has also been shown to improve the ability of users to perform on some limited subsets of cognitive tests, such as the ability to repeat strings of numbers in reverse and reaction time.

This has been a groundbreaking development for the firm, which was only founded in 2009. When the company first came into being, it was little more than a hobby project of industry veterans Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, who founded the company out of their posh Florida mansion as a way to pass the time. But as sales began to grow, the inveterate couple decided that maybe they should invest more time and effort into incubating its success.

As a result, Jeunesse Global was born. From the beginning, the company focused more than its competitors on bringing business opportunities and great products to those situated in disadvantaged regions across the globe. Today, Jeunesse global has tens of thousands of distributors worldwide, with a particularly strong presence in the East Asian countries.

Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis continue on their mission to bring revolutionary products to people everywhere on Earth.
