Market America Shop is Really Owning A Franchise

Market America Shop programs are ready to influence the major markets, in a big way. Like any franchise, Market America provides the foundation for financial success, but people still have to do the work. Through a combination of systemization, optimization, standardization, and innovation. Without the use of state-of-the-art tools and integrated management systems, Market America would just be a great opportunity. But add to that top merchandising and marketing training for members, while teaching them how to grow visibly and you have something new altogether.
Market America Shop is really the opportunity of owning a franchise from multiple points for business localization. However, unlike a franchise, there are none of the associated risks. There are also none of the franchise fees, monthly royalty payouts, or the legal territory restrictions. This means Market America members get all the benefits of high priced franchise opportunities, with little to no risk at all. Plus the startup expenses are so minimal, they hardly seem like startup expenses at all. Take a chance, go to a Market America event in your local city or regional area soon. Come see what a great opportunity really looks like, coming from professionals that know modern business and want to teach you.

Preston Smith, Rocketship Education, and Important Lessons

Founded by CEO Preston Smith, at the time having about 15 years of formal practice as an elementary school educator, Rocketship Education has grown into one of the best systems of public schools in America in its 10 years of existence. Having seen all sides of education – master’s degree in a field related to pedagogical theory; being a student in primary, secondary, postsecondary, and graduate schools; and as a long-time administrator of Rocketship Education – Preston Smith knows exactly what successful educational institutions entail. His keen sense of proper pedagogical application has only improved since being involved with Rocketship. Here’s a few things he’s picked up along the public charter school network’s 10 years of operation.

As most people can reason, parents are integral to students’ success rates. However, many administrators don’t have innovative ways of involving them in regular operations. In each and every year Rocketship Education’s eighteen locations plan on hiring new teachers or replacing existing ones, parents are deeply involved in screening candidates for hiring decisions. Several weeks before the interview process takes place, they’re trained to conduct panel-style interviews, with either three or six of them combining with an administrator to thoroughly screen applicants. Once per year, parents also host their kids’ teachers in their homes, as well. This helps teachers personalize students’ learning plans.

Rocketship also diversifies its workforce prior to doing so for its enrollment bases. It doesn’t matter how diverse its students are. Concordantly, schools should only care about if their teachers’ backgrounds match that of its students, something Rocketship Education takes very seriously.

Having two children currently enrolled in a Californian facility in Rocketship Education’s network of schools, Preston Smith actively learns about how to improve the school system. The above sentiments include just a few of the things he’s learned about in the past decade. Rocketship Education is a group of public charter schools located across the United States: 12 in the Golden State; 3 in Nashville, Tennessee; 1 in Wisconsin; and 2 in the nation’s capital, Washington DC. Rocketship was founded in Redwood City, California in 2007 alongside fellow educator John Danner. The system’s students consistently rank with some of their regions’ highest standardized test scores.

 

How End Citizens United Is Advancing Campaign Finance Reform

Politics can often be a very sensitive and sticky business. There is a lot at stake at each election because the people who are declared the victors will have the power to make decisions that will often impact the lives of tens of millions of people as well as the future. The process that is critical to the health of any democracy is the process that many societies periodically undergo that is known as elections. Elections preserve the health of political systems and are crucial to the functioning of that society. The laws that govern how elections are run are often put into place with the intent to preserve and protect the integrity of the electoral process.

In the United States there has been a major transformation with regard to many of the laws that govern how elections can be run. A body of laws that are known as campaign finance laws have been transformed by the outcomes of a pivotal Supreme Court ruling that is known as Citizens United vs Federal Election Commission. The outcome of the Citizens United vs Federal Election Commission case has transformed the way that political campaigns are run in the United States. If you ask the people who are behind the group End Citizens United they would tell you that those changes are not necessarily for the better. One of the outcomes of the Citizen United vs Federal Election Commission is the rise of political organizations that are known as super PACs or super political action committees. Prior to the Citizens United case political action committees were subject to laws that prevented people from donating from than $2500 each to a political action committee and that did not allow organizations like unions or corporations to donate to political action committees at all.

The Citizens United case changed all of this by allowing corporations to donate to political action committees. Often these corporations can pour unlimited amounts of money into super political action committees. They are able to do this because of the idea that corporations are citizens who have the same rights to free speech as human beings. This of course creates a playing field that is not level because it can give corporations to the ability to sway the outcome of an election in their favor even when that outcome will negatively impact the lives of actual human citizens. That said a group that is known as End Citizens United is working to live up to its name and to put an end to the results of the Citizens United case. According the group’s website their mission is to reduce the role that “big money” plays in politics. One of End Citizens United primary goals is to raise money to elect candidates to office who will challenge the changes that the Citizens United case has wrought upon the American political landscape. The group has noted that it plans to raise money to support the election of candidates who will advocate for campaign finance reform if they are elected to office. According to USA Today, End Citizens United raised $4 million for its cause during the first quarter of 2017.

Adam Milstein Enhances His Advocacy For The Jewish People

Having created a name for himself in the real estate industry, Adam Milstein is fully engaged in ensuring that Jewish community understands their religion and cultures. The Israeli real estate mogul is one of the world’s leading investors in the sector. He makes his investments through Hager Pacific Properties, his company that has $2 billion in investment.

Unlike many professionals who have distanced themselves from advocating for religious groups, Adam Milstein has decided to take the bold step and reach out to the Jewish community. He has also been involved in philanthropic activities aimed at improving the lives of the Jewish Community. Adam Milstein makes his donations through the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation.

Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation supports and mentors Jewish students across the globe. This move is aimed at ensuring that the students’ connection with Israel is strengthened. Adam’s wife, Gila, is also an active philanthropist. Adam and Gila’s efforts have seen an increasing number of Jewish students learn more about their culture and heritage. This situation provides them with invaluable educational experience that they might have not enjoyed. Lack of such education would lead to the erosion of the Jewish heritage. Adam Milstein’s success as a philanthropist has seen him rank as one of the leading philanthropists & social entrepreneurs.

Adam Milstein has also enhanced his service and philanthropic activities to the Jewish community by establishing the Israeli-American Council. The organization is charged with the duty of forging a strong relationship between The United States and Israel. Over the years, the real estate investor has worked hard to ensure that the organization enhances its influence on America’s policies towards both the Jewish community and Israel. This success can be attributed to Milstein’s strong personality and the courage to always speak his mind on issues affecting the Jewish community.

In the recent past, Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation started a meme competition for purposes of supporting Israel culture. The participants were allowed to send their pro-Israel memes. The public started voting for the memes on 3rd August 2017. Winners of the competition received cash prizes of $2,000. The event was full of fun as people showcased their creativity. Adam Milstein posited that the use of memes was the quickest way of promoting the Jewish culture. Jewish organizations and pro-Israel entities sponsored the meme contest.

Contract Attorney: Karl Heideck

On January 23, 2017, Mayor Jim Kenney of Philadelphia signed a new law into place. The law stated that employers in private businesses are restricted from investigating an applicants’ past salary information. A short while later, the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce began to dispute the law. They argued that it is unconstitutional to block employers within the private sector from accessing an applicants’ payment history.

According to http://weeklyopinion.com/2017/08/child-car-seat-law-in-pennsylvania-karl-heideck-explains/, the purpose of the new law was to bring equality between men and women, in terms of salary amount in Pennsylvania. It is obvious that, on average, men get paid more than women throughout the nation. Therefore, lawmakers intended to make things a bit fairer. The law consists of several conditions that must be followed, like prohibiting employers from using applicant salary information without consent, intentionally asking for salary information to applicant, requiring salary data for employment consideration and penalizing a job candidate when they refuse.

Employers who break the law may get fined $2000 each time, even if they are not directly involved. Many started to worry and go against the new ordinance, some even considered filing a lawsuit against the city. Concerns that the law would conflict with free speech began to float around. This led the Chamber of Commerce to file a district court motion on April 6, 2017, just two months before the law went live.

The court determined to stay the rule, and the City of Philadelphia decided to wait an undetermined amount of time before bringing it into effect. In response, people believed that employee rights would be negatively affected and getting a job more difficult. The Chamber failed to provide examples of companies that would be negatively affected by the law, so the filing ultimately got dropped.

Karl Heideck is a contract attorney, who has over ten years of experience within the Greater Philadelphia Area. Heideck just recently was listed by Hire Counsel in 2015. Over the years, he learned a ton working for Pepper Hamilton LLP and Conrad O’Brien.

Heideck received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Swarthmore College in 2003. After that, he studied at Temple University’s James E. Beasley School of Law and earned a Juris Doctor in 2009. Currently, Karl Heideck works in several areas such as commercial litigation, compliance consulting, corporate law, risk management and employment proceeding.

Fabletics, a Company that has thrived on Strategy Rather than on Tradition

Systems fail when we choose to adhere to traditions, leaving new approaches entirely unexploited. However, Fabletics, established in 2013 has decided to deviate from the norm. Today, it thrives mainly due to leveraging the power of the crowd as well as using the reverse showroom technique to woo customers. Just like any modern-day company, Fabletics has gotten to appreciate the role that technology plays in doing a profitable business. Bundled up with the will of its executives, Fabletics has emerged as a real competitor against powerful brands like Amazon. Today, Fabletics is worth more than $250 million.

 

Unlike any of its many competitors, Fabletics has succeeded as a company mainly because it has chosen to offer quality products and services to both its male and female customers. Identifying the power that customer reviews hold in marketing any corporation, it has been the agenda of Fabletics to lure in more clients through the positive feedback left by past customers on their portal. Since customer reviews indirectly recommend a corporation to the world, Fabletics has left no stone unturned in exploiting such a promising avenue.

 

Also, Fabletics has been quick at creating newer and better strategies meant to benefit the brand. It is only recently that Fabletics decided to partner with Demi Lovato, a pop star renowned across the globe. For many years, Demi Lovato has fallen in love with the Fabletics wear because they empower women by rebuilding their self-confidence. Demi has always appreciated the fact that Fabletics, through their athleisure brand, has been able to provide fitness attire that can also get worn during casual occasions. Talk of a perfect match! Today, Fabletics is run by Don Ressler, Adam Goldenberg, and Kate Hudson, with Kate Hudson being the brains behind the fashion wear. As an individual with no prior experience in running a business, Kate Hudson has been the drive behind the success of Fabletics.

 

Since joining Fabletics, Kate has always had the interests of the corporation at heart. From day one, Hudson has helped review budgets and design social media strategies that ensure that Fabletics makes profits eventually. Above all, Kate Hudson has always inspired the design team at Fabletics to come up with new trends in fashion that are not unique and appealing to see. If it were not for Fabletics joining hands with the TechStyle Fashion Group, then all actions would be in vain. As a refurbished brand, Fabletics has thrived because it chose to use feedback from customers to its advantage. By identifying flaws in its products, Fabletics has been able to come up with better items.

 

To a large extent, investing heavily in the customer care department has been able to help all Fabletics clients meet their expectations. For the best experience, Fabletics encourages you to take its Lifestyle Quiz, a test tailor made to help you find the right product for your needs. If it’s the yoga, run, gym, or cycle outfit that you so much desire, Fabletics is the company to consider.

The Impact of Lacey and Larkin to the Immigrant Community in the United States

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are generous individuals who are committed to supporting the Hispanic community in Arizona and across the United States. The two philanthropists are professional journalists and also executives of the top news magazines that are called Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times.

Michael and Jim have always advocated for the rights of the immigrants in Arizona, and they used to write stories about how Joe Arpaio (the former Maricopa County Sherriff) harassed them.

Arpaio did not like the articles that were written about him, and therefore, he sent his deputies to arrest the two journalists in October 2007. The detention of Lacey and Larkin violated their Fifth Amendment rights, and they decided to seek justice in court. In 2013, a verdict was made by a federal judge who ordered the Maricopa County government to pay a settlement of $3.75 million. The fortune was invested in starting an initiative that is known as the Lacey and Larking Frontera Fund.

The Lacey and Larkin initiative has donated money to Aliento, which is an Arizona-based organization that was founded by undocumented youths who live in the state. Aliento uses art and campaigns to ensure that it transforms the lives of immigrants. It has focused on advocating for the rights of DACA-eligible immigrants in the United States.

The group has been supporting the DACA plan in the several states across the country. It helps individuals who are eligible for DACA by solving their immigration based problems, training them to be leaders, healing, and offering pro-educational programs. Aliento plans to host a massive two-states retreat that will create awareness on the rights of DACA program activists and beneficiaries. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Phoenix New Time

Aliento has been encouraging politicians and Dreamers to ensure that immigrant children are protected. It has also won the support of various businesses, churches, and school to enable undocumented immigrant youth to accomplish their dreams in the United States.

Aliento’s founder and director, Reyna Montoya, believes that the policies of the Trump administration have been targeting DACA beneficiaries in the United States.

Since Donald Trump took over the power, over one million DACA-eligible persons have been struggling to defend their rights. The current government is unfriendly to them, and it may decide to shut the DACA program. This would lead to massive deportations.

Arizona has passed laws that oppress undocumented immigrants by barring them from having driving licenses and attending schools in the states. Approximately 7 percent of the undocumented youths have been admitted to learning institutions in the United States.

Fundación México is also a major beneficiary of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin’s charity work. The foundation is headquartered in southern Arizona, and it is committed to offering scholarships to bright immigrant students.

Many undocumented youths have failed to attend colleges and universities due to the high tuition fees that they are required to pay. The Arizona laws have also made them ineligible for any support from public funds, and therefore, they cannot access scholarships that are offered by the government.

Three Hundred Collins, located in Miami Beach, is a new and exciting luxury condominium project for Jason Halpern. Plans call for 19 units on floors two through five with the lobby also serving as the amenities area. Square footage will vary from 1,000 square feet to 3,700, most units will have from one to four bedrooms, but there will be four two-story condos and three penthouses. Marble bathrooms and kitchens, wide-plank white oak floors, large terraces, and 18-foot ceilings in the two-story units are only a few of the amenities offered. Residents will enjoy three fitness centers, front desk concierge service, and a huge swimming pool.

The Appointment and Impact of Lori Senecal in CP&B

Lori’s Appointment as the CEO in CP&B

In March 2015, CP&B filed its newly created position of a CEO with the appointment of Lori Senecal. That office would require her to overlook the company’s global expansion and growth as well as the management of the international agencies. The company found her suitable given that her management competence was well known and her pioneering ability to embrace technology would be instrumental in the growth of the agency. On a global level, Lori has been known as a world leader with her innovation and invention abilities to place an organization from a national to an international platform.

In her interview by Laura Dunn from Adage, she stated that the appointment meant that she would have growth opportunities working along talented business people in the advertisement industry. Her commitment from the start was to see global growth of the agency and increase the clientele base which would translate to a better financial position. Check out Crunchbase to know more.

Plan to Exit the CP&B

Apparently, in less than three years since her appointment, Lori’s plan is to exit the company by the end of 2017. That she stated in May 2017, suggesting her departure from the company would provide another talented person an opportunity to grow and take the company to its next stride.

She suggested that her time in CP&B had allowed her an opportunity to realize and attain greater goals professionally and personally more than she had imagined. Her working in the US was fruitful something that was unexpected for her. Visit Forbes to know more

The chairman of the CP&B, Chuck Potter, detailed that the company needed her organizational strength and management competence to soar high as it had done during her tenure. Further, he praised Lori given that since her appointment in office the company has never lost clients something that is incredible given the business dynamics and challenges of dealing with customers. Remarkably, Lori Senecal spearheaded the company’s operations to the extent of attracting new customers like American Airlines because of the high-quality services with a global touch.

Through her leadership, CP&B was able to develop a communication structure that played a pivotal role in the company. The challenge would be to find a person who would take over from where Senecal left and ensure the consistent growth of the company despite the transition. Fortunately, while in office before her departure she is training a group of people who will see a successful transition. You can subscribe on her YouTube account.
