Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg Provide Their Own Spin To Clothing

With all the talk about Don Ressler, Adam Goldenberg and all of the brands of TechStyle, it might be a good idea to go into what exactly they offer for their customers. One thing that should be made clear is that TechStyle is mostly for women. However, there are some lines of clothing for men. With JustFab, they have a lot of different types of products for women. Among the products they carry are shoes, purses, tote bags, and plenty of other accessories. However, when it comes to clothing, they make sure that they offer something that is unique as well so that customers will continue to shop at their store.


Among the areas where JustFab is unique is in the type of t-shirts they offer. They make sure that they don’t offer anything that does not have a different spin on it. They also make sure that the designs differ in ways that are very likable. Among the tops they offer women are tunics, Criss-cross tops, cross over body suits, and plenty of other hard to find unique pieces of clothing. Of course they are offered in many different colors, fits, and sizes. Therefore, women will easily find something that they want.


Even with the online success of JustFab, there is a flagship store that is available in Glendale. There are no plans to open up anymore locations. However, the other brand, Fabletics, is one of the most successful brands in the TechStyle family. They have opened plenty of locations in many different markets. They have also taken steps to be all-inclusive as well.


Environmental Economic Growth For Brazil

The natural beauty of Brazil and the quality of the air and water that the Brazilian people and unique Brazilian animals must have to live has been compromised by decades of misuse and abuse by local and international manufacturers and users of natural resources on Flavio Maluf has run counter to the trend in the development of a company called Eucatex that converts a natural resource – eucalyptus – into acoustic linings for doors and buildings.

The Eucatex process includes replanting a valuable and irreplaceable natural resource and the husbandry of eucalyptus in a way that ensures generations of raw material and jobs for Brazilians at Eucatex has become known around the world as one of the most environmentally conscious companies in the world.

Flavio Maluf is a mechanical engineer who trained at the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo and studied business administration at New York University. When Maluf assumed a leadership role at Eucatex in 1997, his education and abilities became readily apparent. The company on expanded to three new plants, developed new international markets, and produced new products for the furniture industry and civil construction.

As president of Eucatex, Maluf initiated changes in processes, modernized management philosophy, and internationalized the first eco-friendly company that is home grown in Brazil. Maluf’s abilities have been demonstrated in record growth for his company even during the recent down turn in building and construction in Brazil.

Flavio Maluf is reputed to be what the U. S. calls a hands-on manager. He states that his success and the success of Eucatex would not have been possible without having an intimate knowledge of raw materials, manufacturing processes, quality management, markets, and finance.

Flavio Maluf is passionately and intimately involved in working with local government and local construction business in an effort to produce a turn around in the slump in growth that began in 2013. His efforts have produced a 750 percent increase in market expectations for a revival of the construction industry in Brazilian in the next two years.

Maluf’s thirty-year marriage to Jacqueline Torres has produced three sons. Each of his sons is engaged in receiving an education in Brazil and abroad that will position them for assuming a leadership role in the company that their father brought to prominence in Brazil.

Securus Technologies corrects misleading information published by GTL

Securus Technologies has been a leader in the criminal justice and technology solutions. Their primary goal has been to improve the experience of inmates at the time they spend in correction facilities. The company focuses on providing an array of services to inmates that are meant to enhance their safety, communication and receive essential emergency services. Such services include public information, communication, running investigations, emergency response and monitoring services. The company has grown to expand to other cities and different parts of the United States. They currently have their headquarters in Dallas, Texas where they serve more than three thousand correction facilities. The company avails its services to more than one million inmates spread across North America region.

Securus Technologies recently corrected wrong information put forth by GTL concerning its patents. One of GTL’s allegations was that the federal court had allowed them to seek injunctions for PTAB validation through their 816 patents. Securus later made it clear that the PTAB, a patent body, did not have the right to validate any patent and therefore cannot seek injunctions against those patents. In the same news, GTL had insisted that Securus were not allowed to monitor video monitoring visitations due to infringement of patents.

Claims like that where GTL insists that Securus Technologies does not have their equipment patented are unfounded. GTL insisted that they want to seek damages as Securus used their patents to get access their technology. Securus made a correction to the press release insisting that they have adequate technology. They have more patents compared to that of GTL. The company CEO went on to state they are ready to defend the company from any future attacks by GTL. He also questioned the approach taken by GTL to try solving disputes. The litigation undertaken by the firm is going to cost millions and may take years to complete.

Your Business Has an Online Reputation, Whether You Know or Not

In the modern world, everything has an online presence. Whether it’s a person, a place, or a national landmark, someone has written about it, someone has made a page for it, it’s been mentioned in a tweet or a blog post, something. Chances are your small business has a presence somewhere, even if you aren’t aware of it, and this presence has an effect on your business. Online reputation management (ORM) is a necessity in the modern world, especially with sites like Yelp and Angie’s List where users create the pages and the content being the go-to places to research a business.
According to this article on Supermarket News, citing a Harvard Business study,a one star difference in your average Yelp rating represents a five to nine percent difference in your business’ overall revenue. While it may seem that once they are written, there is no way to change someone’s review or affect their opinion, this is absolutely not the case. Sites like Yelp allow users to edit and change their reviews, which means that until your business has closed its doors, it is never too late to try to engage with your customers and enhance their experience.

The number one thing to keep in mind when you’re engaging with online reviews is to always be positive. Unlike in math, negativity on top of negativity will never lead to positivism. While “the customer is always right” is a cliché with a ton of holes, it is something to keep in mind when responding to reviews online. A customer’s experience and opinions are theirs, and they are correct for them, so you need to make sure to not be defensive or contradict either of these things.

If you want to satisfy a dissatisfied customer, you need to acknowledge the source of their dissatisfaction, apologize, and offer them an explanation for why it won’t happen again, maybe even offer them something to make up for their negative experience. It is the same sort of thing that you would do in purpose to please a disgruntled customer, but for some reason many business-owners don’t realize that offline techniques can still work in the digital world.
