Fabletics Offers the Whole Package and Stays Competitive with Amazon

Amazon commands a large piece of the fashion e-commerce pie, but Fabletics is quickly catching up by providing the convenience, style and affordable pricing consumers desire. Fabletics understands that quality and price aren’t the only factors needed to draw in and retain customers. Fabletics stays competitive by utilizing a subscription based membership with individually selected recommended styles. Customer experience is important, and the brand pursues consumers by providing high level service, unique experience, and cutting edge clothing styles.

 

Fabletics utilizes a quiz for all new visitors to the site, which takes each online shopper’s location and preferences into account before displaying recommended styles. On top of that, customers can select from new releases every month. The athleisure trend is growing, but Fabletics stays relevant by offering desirable fashion at much more reasonable costs than big brands. Fabletics also avoids losing sales to showrooming, where customers sample clothes offline but then buy it cheaper elsewhere. By starting online and building their reputation, and getting to know individual consumer trends, they avoid the pitfalls of pop-up stores. They have several brick-and-mortar stores, but the clothing that customers try on in store goes into their online cart. Therefore it doesn’t matter where the customer shops. They also use local data to determine which clothes to display in their physical stores.

 

Fabletics understands new consumers, and it shows. It also helps to have Kate Hudson as their winsome brand representative. Kate Hudson co-founded Fabletics with JustFab in 2013 when she saw an opportunity to inspire people to fitness. She keeps the brand personable by starring in Fabletics commercials and even planning and filming one herself on her iPhone. You can also see her personal style picks online.

 

Hudson looks for new business and marketing opportunities all the time, which resulted in a plus size line and a men’s active wear brand. Even though these additions are more work, she recognizes the value of supporting all customers on their fitness journies. She keeps a close eye on the progress of different styles so that she can determine what to keep and what to take out of stock. This helps keep Fabletics relevant and meet customer demand.

 

From the moment a customer logs onto Fabletics website, the brand works hard to satisfy their demands. The athleisure trend is growing, and Fabletics expects to continue growing as well. If you would like to learn more about Fabletics and what style picks will be selected for you, check out the Fabletics Lifestyle quiz to see which gear is best for you!

Meet Clay Siegall, the genius behind antibody drug conjugates

One of the most innovative areas in cancer research, in the last few decades, has been the advent of targeted cancer therapies. This term broadly refers to a class of drugs that use various means of specifically targeting malignant tissues, rather than systemically releasing large amounts of cytotoxins into the patient’s system. These drugs have allowed for the treatment of various types of cancers, without the horrendous side effects of traditional chemotherapeutic regimes.

No single person stands larger in the world of targeted cancer therapy then Clay Siegall. After having founded Seattle Genetics, a pharmaceutical company dedicated to the research and development of a class of targeted therapies known as antibody drug conjugates, Dr. Siegall has gone on to prove his acumen both in the field of business and as a bona fide giant of the medical research field. Through his development of antibody drug conjugates, a form of targeted cancer therapy that uses human-like antibodies as the means to deliver lethal cytotoxins directly to the surface of the malignancy, Dr. Siegall has been able to radically extend the life expectancies of those patients suffering from certain types of cancer.

One of the areas in which Dr. Siegall has demonstrated that the concept of antibody drug conjugates is a viable and effective means of treating cancer is for the disease non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Like many types of cancer, this disease has seen almost complete stagnation in research efforts since the 1970s. The survivability rates of the disease, while generally high for being a form of cancer, had not materially improved for more than 30 years. But after Dr. Siegall led Seattle Genetics to develop a novel form of antibody drug conjugate, which specifically targeted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma tumors, the life expectancy for those suffering from the disease has steadily risen.

What’s more, for those patients for whom being administered the drug ADCetris, Seattle Genetics’ antibody drug conjugate for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, is indicated, the side effects of traditional chemotherapies are almost completely absent. This means that not only can patients receiving ADCetris expect to live nearly as long as those without the disease, but they do not have to endure the terrible effects of traditional chemotherapy.

George Soros Targets Donald Trump Following 2016 Election Shock

The news media has already poured over the events of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election campaign after the polls and experts failed to predict a Donald Trump victory or the seizing of power in the Senate and House by the Republican Party. One of the most important members of the Democratic party in the 21st century has been George Soros, the hedge fund expert and political donor who has been seen as a touchstone for members of the party as they gauge the mood of the public. Close advisors to George Soros explained in the run up to the 2016 election that he had rarely been as involved or motivated politically as he seemed in the days leading up to the ballot, which eventually saw Democrat Hillary Clinton defeated by Republican candidate Trump.

Over the course of the 2016 election campaign George Soros has been reported to have donated over $25 million to the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the relevant Super PAC’s backing her candidacy; the donations made in 2016 are still dwarfed by the more than $27 million Soros provided in funding in 2004 for John Kerry’s election bid as Soros foresaw the coming economic problems linked to the Republican administration on Biography. As a former refugee from Communist controlled Hungary, George Soros believed a left leaning government was the best option for the world as he has been concerned about the European refugee crisis and situation in Syria for the majority of the last two years.

Global events obviously drive George Soros, but he is also concerned with the growing problems of unfairness in the U.S. criminal justice system, which he has tried to assist with a $3.5 million investment in state level elections across 2015 and 2016. Studies from Wake Forest University have shown around 95 percent of prosecutor and district attorney elections in the U.S. pass by uncontested with more than three quarters of elections won by a white male across the nation. In a bid to provide more diversity George Soros and his “527” group have been providing radio and TV advertising for Democrat candidates from minority groups on Politico who have benefited from campaign funds that dwarf those of their conservative opponents.

After deciding against attending the Democratic National Convention to monitor the situation in Europe, George Soros moved quickly following the election victory of Donald Trump to begin working with Democrat’s to create a plan for the future of the party. At the Democracy Alliance event held in Washington D.C., George Soros began working with major Democratic figures in a bid to develop a plan for state level election success in 2017 and 2018. Soros also believes it is important to use every avenue available in a bid to halt the destructive policies of the incoming Trump Administration as he also looks to examine how wealthy donors like himself will work with the party in the future.

Brian Bonar Points Out Smart Moves For Novice Business Owners

“It’s a fact that a large number of new businesses today fail due to a lack of cash flow or mismanagement,” says finance expert, Brian Bonar. Hundreds of new businesses launch every year and very few remain. However, there’s a way to plan ahead to ensure you have a good chance of success. “Just a little careful planning can help owners avoid disaster.”

Brian Bonar is at the forefront of the fast-moving outsourcing industry trend. He’s spent the past two decades building several businesses, from the floor up, and is recognized for his innovation and leadership. He’s built a reputation for making strategic businesses decisions, and incubating new business models into revenue-generating engines. As a finance professional, and award-winning expert, Brian Bonar quickly recognizes what it takes to have a chance for survival.

It All Begins With Cash Flow

Enjoying profits at year end all depends on the proper balance between an inflow of cash inflow and outflow. Understanding your cash flow, or the movement of cash within the business, is critical to success. The cash flow statement points out when you can expect cash to flow into accounts and those times when cash is needed to pay the bills. It also allows the owner to identify where your cash is expected to come from.

“The availability or non-availability of cash when you need it gets to the bones of the matter,” says Brian Bonar. Many novice business owners can’t maintain the status quo because they completely focus on the profit instead of expenditures.

Owners must plan ahead for sources of cash to tide the business over until steady revenue is received. Start by preparing two worksheets, cash to be paid out and sources of cash. This pre-planning can also go a long way with organizing your tax filings. Think ahead about deductions.

Cash Outflow

  1. Startup Costs
  2. Inventory Purchases
  3. Fixed Expenses
  4. Variable Expenses
  5. Liabilities
  6. Assets

Of course, businesses have expenses that are specific to their industry, so owners will have to customize certain expenses.

Sources Of Cash

  1. Cash on hand
  2. Sales
  3. Miscellaneous Income
  4. Sale of Assets
  5. Equity

With these two worksheets, owners can estimate how much cash will be required for the coming year. A cash flow statement can become one of the most useful financial tools available, especially for novice business owners.

Brian Bonar points out, “owners don’t need to be accountants to run a successful businesses, but you should acquaint yourself with basic records.” We all have ideas to start a business, but to be successful you need to begin with basic tools to stay in the marketplace.
