We Hate To Run

Starting a successful online retail company with physical outlets may not look like a smart business move. Nonetheless, athleisure brand Fabletics has successfully managed to juggle the two undertakings. In most cases, retailers start online before opening up physical stores later. By going against the grain, Fabletics has established a name for itself in the e-commerce market. The status quo in the online fashion retail business is already being challenged. This has set the precedence for upcoming retailers.

 

Tough Balancing Act

 

Fabletics started as an e-commerce business. Its founders realized that by relying on online stores, the company wouldn’t compete favorably with more established retailers such as Amazon and Warby Parker. To counter this, the founders decided to open physical stores alongside its online store. So far, there are more than 20 physical outlets, which are meant to serve customers who cannot access its online store. Managing both platforms has been a tough balancing act. Nonetheless, it has given the company’s executives the resilience for forge on, and the hunger to succeed.

 

Fabletics has numerously been compared to the new kid on the block who steals the show from the old guard. Actually, this is true if its profit margins and subscriber numbers are anything to go by. The strategy that has been employed is not only bullish but also ambitious. The company has been seeking to provide its subscribers with real value. It recognizes that e-commerce has taken a new twist with clients preferring high-value brands. Fabletics seeks to satisfy the shipping needs of two categories of clients: those who are comfortable online and offline. This has been the secret behind its impressive growth.

 

Online Customers’ Database

 

Fabletics has an extensive database containing its subscriber’s tastes and preferences as far as athletic wear is concerned. Therefore, its stock is customized to suit the preferences of each subscriber. Customers visiting its online and physical stores only see items that are appealing to them. Omnicart software is used to reveal customer’s reactions towards items that are on sale on the online store. This helps its employees to pinpoint unpopular and unappealing merchandise.

 

Fabletics’ founders Adam Goldenberg, Kate Hudson, and Don Ressler also play an active role in its operations. The three have built a business empire valued at $250 million from scratch. With the expected opening of more locations, this figure is likely to increase exponentially. Its membership subscription model has also made it popular among athleisure enthusiasts since they no longer have to actively participate in shopping; online or offline.

The Georgetown Genius

Georgetown University has one of the most respected business schools in the country. When someone from Georgetown University decides they want to start a business, people listen and ideas become reality. Naturally, Georgetown graduate Nathaniel Ru peaked the interest of big name investors when he decided he wanted to enter the world of fast food. Normally, most businessmen don’t see amazing successes in their first attempt to open up a business, but this is exactly what happened when he and his friends founded Sweetgreen.

 

 

What Sweetgreen Means To Food

Sweetgreen isn’t just another fast food joint. It is an attempt to change the way we think of fast food in general. America is facing a serious health epidemic, and our fast food industry carries much of the blame. We need a new approach to fast food that considers our need for healthy food above all other interests. This is what Sweetgreen does. It gives the convenience of fast food without all of the health problems so often associated with the modern fast food industry.

 

 

Why Millennials Love Sweetgreen

Nathaniel Ru founded Sweetgreen in 2007. This was a year that brought many of the biggest changes in culture and technology we see today. Facebook was growing, Twitter was founded, and the internet entered its adolescence. Sweetgreen is a product of all of this and Millennials naturally take a liking to the restaurant. A great example of this is the Sweetgreen app. Although there are other fast food restaurants that have allowed their customers to use apps to order food online, the Sweetgreen app takes things a step further. The money you spend at Sweetgreen will actually go towards philanthropic goals and towards improving the world.

 

 

The Mission He Set Before Him

Nathaniel Ru has set some ambitious goals in front of him. Not only does he want Sweetgreen to become a successful franchise, he wants to make the restaurant stand for something bigger. There are so many things going on in the world and someone needs to find a way to solve these problems. He wants Sweetgreen to serve as part of that solution. At every step of the process Sweetgreen is designed with the goal of helping others in need of assistance. This isn’t always the most proitable solution, but it speaks to the causes Nathaniel Ru holds dear.

Lung Institute is a holistic medical facility that aims at providing solutions to chronic lung diseases. Our various medical personnel gained global recognition in successful application of revolutionary stem cell therapy for chronic lung disease treatment, visit lunginstitute.com for more info. Lung diseases are devastating because they inhibit people from enjoying their favorite activities or spending time with family.

Patients undergo series of screening to establish a proper treatment option for them. Proficient doctors at the Institute study medical history of patients and consider their present conditions so that best treatment results are achieved. PR Web explains stem cell therapy involves withdrawal of stem cells from the patient’s body. We reintroduce the stem cells into the body where they ultimately rest in the lungs hasten healing, and prevent Inflammation.

The Lung Institute doctor, Jack Coleman, Jr., presented at the Third International Congress in Italy. The event was held to discuss the application of stem cells as a therapy for chronic lung infections. Dr. Coleman affirmed that traditional processes of introducing new medications are expensive and limiting to new technologies like stem cell therapy. Although technologies such as stem cell therapy are better treatment methods in the contemporary medical field, the process of making it available to patients is slow and cumbersome. The modern way of introducing new technologies in the medical field increases the time taken by new techniques to be used for the treatment of infections.

Since stem cell therapy uses natural healing abilities of the stem cells, hence, the treatment is holistic. Sufferers of chronic lung diseases are unable to enjoy their favorite activities because they are weak. After treatment, their lives would be elevated, hence, they would not need to walk around with oxygen. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is also used together with stem cell therapy to reduce inflammation in the lung region.

Wanting great hair is not about vanity. It is about having confidence and feeling young and healthy. Women always feel better about themselves when their hair looks great. Anyone can have beautiful hair if they know how to care for it properly. Here are the five best steps for looking great every day.

Wash Hair Less

Shampooing every day is unnecessary and it will lead to damage. Usually this damage includes flat, overworked hair and an itchy scalp. Hair loss is a common side effect. Avoid this by washing only when it is absolutely necessary. For most women this means no more than two or three times a week. Use a dry shampoo in-between if the roots begin to look greasy or limp.

Shampoo Hair Correctly

Shampooing removes the excess oils found at the root. Shampoo only the first third of hair and rinse. Make certain to massage the scalp while doing so to remove dead skin and improve circulation around the roots. Do the opposite with conditioner. Applying this to the scalp will flatten the hair when all that really needs help are the ends.

Use Natural Products

Avoid chemicals whenever possible. Look for natural hair products that provide a gentle cleansing and conditioning. Do the same when coloring the hair. Use natural hennas instead of harsh colorants.

Treat it Gently

Hair is the most fragile when it is wet. Towel dry carefully by blotting the hair and wrapping with a thick towel to absorb excess moisture. Carefully comb through the strands after removing the towel. Never brush wet hair or the strands could break.

Lower the Heat

Shower in warm water. Wrap hair in a towel for 15 minutes before blow drying. Use the lowest setting on the dryer, keep it several inches away from the head and move constantly instead of focusing on one area. Use the lowest setting on styling tools or seek out styles that do not require flat irons or curling rods.

One of the best ways to keep hair healthy is to use products that cleanse without stripping.WeEN hair by Chaz is the perfect solution. It is a hair care system that eliminates the damaging sulfates found in most shampoos.

Wen by Chaz is the product line created by Hollywood stylist Chaz Dean. It uses natural ingredients that deep clean the hair to remove oils and product buildup. The result is hair that is stronger, thicker and more manageable. The Wen by Chaz line gives women lustrous hair almost instantly. See, http://www.ebay.com/bhp/wen-hair-care.
