Fabletics, A Great Success in Female Entrepreneurship

Fabletics is a brand of workout wear that was started by Kate Hudson, the actress. The brand’s success has grown far beyond her imagination. What’s unique about the business model that’s been used by Fabletics is twofold. First, the company offers a subscription service where customers can receive new workout wear each month. Second, the once only online business is not in the process of opening retail stores as well. This model has been used by a few companies and has proven to be rather successful. The “reverse showroom technique,” as the term has been coined by companies such as Warby Parker and even Apple, eases the minds (and wallets) of those wary of online shopping.

 

Prospective customers are now able to preview the “athleisure” wear online and then purchase it in store. Several other companies are now taking on this approach, including online giant Amazon. This approach gives maximum exposure to the consumer and at the same time instant gratification. Saving consumers time and money is appreciated and leads to increased sales. By picking a smart executive staff, Hudson has taken the company from trial and error to record levels of success, even paving the way for other subscription services to take off, even for male consumers, a once thought unlikely demographic for this type of marketing.

 

The “reverse showroom technique” as it’s called allows the company to understand where its customers are to provide maximum leverage. Also, the online component is used in the retail stores as well, such as when an item is out of stock. This not only promotes the online business but credibility with those who might not shop online ordinarily. The results are already proving themselves to be effective. Fabletics has already started with more than a dozen stores and is planning on adding even more. Prospective customers can even go online to take a lifestyle quiz to see which type of “athleisure” wear is perfect for them.

 

Kate Hudson’s new brand has not only grown to impress herself but has certainly gained the respect of the business world as well. This success is a huge step for the world of female entrepreneurship everywhere.

Sweetgreens creating sweetlife

Nathaniel Ru founded Sweetgreens in August of 2007. Nathaniel and his co-CEO’s Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman took an entrepreneurship class together at Georgetown University. They created Sweetgreens with two things in mind; first they wanted to feed people better and second they wanted to make a brand that would stand for something. They didn’t feel as though there were enough healthy eating options near Georgetown and once they graduated they decided to open Sweetgreens. When Georgetown University was mostly empty during winter break Nathaniel, Nicolas and Jonathan realized that their restaurant would make it. People were still frequenting Sweetgreens for a healthy dining alternative. Learn more: http://www.thehoya.com/nathaniel-ru-jonathan-neman-and-nicolas-jammet/

 

Sweetgreens serves farm to table food in a fast food chain restaurant atmosphere. Sweetgreens factors in organic, local, healthy and fresh when they are creating their rotating menus. As of October 2016, Sweetgreens had 64 restaurants with over 1,700 employees. Sweegreens currently has locations in California, Illinois, New York, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

Nathaniel, Nicolas and Jonathan are tech pioneers and over thirty percent of their companies transactions are made via their company site or mobile phone app. These co-CEO’s are bicostal and do not believe in a true corporate headquarters. They do have an office in Los Angeles but they are hoping to grow their company more nationally. Sweetgreens shuts down their office five times a year and the office staff works within the various restaurant locations for a more hands on approach.

In 2009, after opening a larget Sweetgreens location in Dupont circle, they had a lull in customers. Upon realizing they needed a reason for customers to come to this new location they started playing live music. This connection between music and food was the beginning of a larger trend they would create. Eventually they started bringing their food to local farmers markets and incorporated music there as well. Six hundred people showed up to this event and they decided to name it sweetlife. This new yearly music festival that Sweetgreens incorporates with their food draws upwards to twenty thousand people yearly. In addition to those coming for the music and Sweetgreens food, local farmers and food trucks also attend the music fest. While constantly asking “why” when coming up with new marketing ideas, Sweetgreens is becoming a strong leader in the healthy and convenient life style while incorporating fun and creativity.

Adam Milstein Speaks Out Against BDS Agitation

Adam Milstein, the famous American Israeli philanthropist, is speaking out about the need for “boots on the ground” in college campuses. The problem stems with the BDS movement, which stands for Boycott, Divest and Sanction. This movement has been harassing and intimidating pro-Israel and Jewish people on college campuses. Many groups have worked hard to combat this hate, but the problem is only growing.

 

Let’s have some examples. At the University of California, Los Angeles, the student judicial board tried to prevent a Jewish student from joining by saying that she had dual loyalties because she was Jewish. The Foreign Minister of Israel was called smelly in a public lecture at Harvard by a student. A Jewish student who was running for student senate was harassed at Stanford. Not only that, but physical assaults are rising as well.

 

It’s not only on campus. Both on college campuses and off college campuses, there are large and hostile demonstrations against Israel. These are much larger than the pro-Israel demonstrations where a few activists try to counter the protests. You can notice that many students are afraid to show up at the pro-Israel counter demonstrations.

 

It’s much more than that. The truth is that the BDS movement is well funded by large organizations with huge budgets. They pay people to stay on campus and agitate. This is often funded by SIP. SIP is an organization called Students for Justice in Palestine. They have more than two hundred chapters across America and get funds from all sorts of organizations at home and abroad, such as Palestine Legal.

 

One person helping to combat this is Adam Milstein. He donates a lot of money to causes that are important to Israel and for helping it out. He founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation. He helps support the Israeli American relationship.

 

He was born in Haifa, which is a city in Northern Israel. He served his mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Forces and then graduated from the Technion. He got a Bachelor’s of Science in business and economics in 1978. He moved to the United States in 1981 with his wife and his two children.
