Sweetgreen Is Trying to Change the American Diet, and Nathaniel Ru is Rooting for the Best

Sometimes, we just want simple food that is enough for a simple meal, lunch, or dinner. All of that gourmet stuff does not end well if we consume it all the time, so simple food has to have a place in the diet of every citizen nowadays with so much food that is high in carbs and processed.



Sweetgreen, for example, is a company that follows that line of thinking, as they are leaders in the market of healthy and natural food. Americans are certainly acquainted with the restaurant chain Sweetgreen as it is sometimes the number 1 pick for a healthy diet.



Eating healthier is a good thing, and the group of entrepreneurs Nicolas Jammet, Nathaniel Ru, and Jonathan Neman, who founded the company in August 2007, certainly agree, as their main philosophy is to help control obesity and diseases that come from heavy diets.



These co-founders are certainly very successful in the foods market, and there are more than forty locations where you can find the Sweetgreen restaurants. In fact, there are over 65 stores in the U.S. as of June 2017, and more local places where Sweetgreen food can be bought are being planned to be added shortly.



The food that is served by Sweetgreen is simple, but it is not easy to make, as a lot of thoughtfulness goes into the preparation and organizing of the dishes, and they have a very professional look, while the chefs of sweetgreen are real artists in the kitchen.



On that same note, the Sweetgreen food is meant for everybody. Because there is a typical association of junk food with being cheaper than quality food, the Sweetgreen staff certainly disagrees, as they believe that they have found the perfect balance of providing food with the essential benefits that are necessary to have an energized and fulfilled day, while having cheap and welcoming dishes that is meant for anyone to try out.



According to Nathaniel Ru, the philosophy of the company is certainly to improve the daily diet of people around the world, in a modern society where junk food is much more accessible. Nathalien Ru stated that the plans for him and his co-founders were to create a brand that would stand for that statement even if it meant less success – they would not delve into the less healthy food for the sake of popularity. Maintaining that brand’s phrase as a pedestal was one of the reasons why the group achieved such a success.



Another nice thing from the company’s managers is that they are not centered in the company’s main headquarters because there is none. They operate in a way that they are always visiting their restaurants and being close to the delivery of the end-product, analyzing the reactions of their customers and making sure that the Sweetgreen food is at its top quality.


How Fabletics Differentiates Itself From Wal-mart, Target, Under Armor and NIKE

The fashion industry is such a big industry that all types of stores are involved in it on some level. Even discount mass merchandisers like Wal-mart and Target have gotten themselves involved in the industry. However, they do not have all of the creativity that Fabletics has. Even with activewear companies like Under Armor and NIKE, there is a limit to the creativity of these items. Therefore, people who want something unique would have to make some adjustments to these items. However, Kate Hudson has brought something new to the industry. This company is called Fabletics, and this company is doing a lot of things differently with the clothes that are offered.


The first thing people will notice about the clothes is that while they are essentially workout clothes, they come with designs that make them really fun to wear. People who try on these Fabletics outfits are going to experience a greater level of confidence. They approach their fitness with a greater energy than with clothes from other brands. This is one of the reasons that customers are attracted to the company as a whole. People not only get to see the differences in the items but also feel the difference in these items.


Another more important aspect of the success of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics brand is the marketing. She has used a lot of different approaches that not only encouraged but also inspired people to wear Fabletics brands and enjoy the styles they can come up with. One of the best things about Fabletics clothing is that it is not just designed for working out, but also other occasions like dating, workplace events, family gatherings and other events.


Perhaps the best way that Fabletics differentiates itself from Wal-mart and the other stores that sell fashion is that it is subscription based. The subscription works when it comes to saving customers money. For one thing, Kate Hudson was passionate about finding a way to save money for the customers without having to resort to unethical means of providing clothes. Everyone that is making the clothes is fairly compensated and cared for.

The Programs That Betsy DeVos Pioneered Are Still In Use

In the 1980’s, Betsy DeVos began her philanthropic career with the onset of the programs that she felt were necessary to make a difference in the educational system. She didn’t do this for the same reason that lobbyists were trying to make changes. Instead, she did this so that students would have more opportunities and they would be able to get more out of the education that they were receiving. She wanted all students to have the chance at the best education possible. In some instances, this means that students need the chance to be able to attend a private school.

The first opportunity that Betsy DeVos took to make sure that she was creating reform in the school system was the creation of a voucher program. This allowed students the chance to be able to go to private school. The only difference in these students and the ones who attended the school in a traditional way was that they were able to pay with vouchers instead of having to pay cash for the education that they were going to receive from the private school. It made a difference in the way that things were done for children and for families who could not afford it. Read more about their foundation at dbdvfoundation.org.

After Betsy DeVos realized that the program was working and was something that was going to work well for children who came from families of poverty, she wanted to do more to be able to help them. She also wanted to show them what she was going to get out of the different opportunities for them and that allowed them the chance to see that they could do more with the educational opportunities that they had. They could take their lives and their careers even further than what they were able to do in the past with a public education.

As Betsy DeVos created more opportunities for students and showed them different things that they would be able to do in different situations, she learned a lot about the educational system. She is now an expert on the system and knows the right way to be able to do things. she has used her organization to help people out and to make sure that they are getting the best educational opportunity possible. She knows that this is an extremely important part of education and it will make a huge difference for the students who she helps out throughout her career.

Betsy DeVos not only works to make things better for students on her own but she has also gotten her entire family involved with the process. This is something that she is confident with and something that she knows how to do the right way. Read her interview with Philanthropy Table.

Madison Street Capital Secures ARIES Deal

According to a press release posted online in January this year, Madison Street Capital was one of the key players behind the successful deal reached by the clients ARES Security Corporation and Corbel Structured Equity Partners. In the deal, Madison Street Capital played the role of key financial advisor (actually the exclusive financial advisor) and was charged with the responsibility of negotiating subordinated debt investment as well as minority on behalf of the clients.

The announcement of the deal was made in a press conference that was attended by the presidents of both companies involved and was announced by the Madison Street Capita CEO Charles Botchway. Speakers and representatives lauded the deal as a huge milestone that had taken considerable effort to pull together but which they expected would in time gradually be able to improve the fortunes of both companies.

In the words of the current Ares Security Shareholder and President Mr. Ben Eazzatta, their company was thoroughly impressed by Madison Street Capital reputation and the work that their team members had put into making the deal a reality. He was particularly grateful for the valuation analysis, due diligence and the process of eventually raising the capital as contributed to by the later company over the year 2016 when the deal was being worked on. The press release went on to further reveal that Aries Security had chosen to go with Corbel because their evaluation clearly showed that they presented the best option for creating equity value of more significance.

Although this may probably be one of the biggest deals that Madison Street Capital has handled this year, this is definitely not the company’s first rodeo. It is an internationally recognized investment bank with operations in and across most of the biggest cities in the world. Among the services that the company provides include valuations for both private and public companies, financial opinions, handling of mergers and acquisitions as well as many more.

The main head offices of Madison Street Capital are located in Chicago, Illinois and therefore it did not come as much of a surprise that this is also where the press release was made. In addition to their main headquarters the company also has additional offices located in North America, Asia and Africa as well. Over the years the company seems to have shifted more of its focus towards what have come to be referred to as middle market investment banking services.

George Soros Re-emerges in the Political Scene

The billionaire who is popular known for the $27 million he spent trying to defeat George Bush’s presidential bid in 2004, has recently reemerged as a top donor of Democratic politics. Soros donated over $25 million as a boost to Hilary Clinton and other candidates running on a Democratic Party ticket. Some of Soros’ associates expected him to donate more during the election campaigns. Following Clinton’s defeat in the presidential race, George Soros is reported to have described the U.S. president, Donald Trump, as a potential dictator.

Soros Argument on Endangered Democracy

Soros has openly described the U.S. presidency as a dictatorial system. His assertions are based on the fact that Trump’s cabinet features incompetent extremists and retired generals. Soros does not fear that the democracy of Americans is endangered, he is fearful for how Trump will deal with other countries.

According to Soros, since the US will be occupied with internal problems, the minorities will suffer most from her foreign policy. Trump will endear himself to dictators and this will promote dictatorship in different parts of the world. Instead of fighting for democratic principles, Trump will choose to broker deals that are in the best interest of the US.

Soros is mainly fearful about the EU and how Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president, poses a big threat to the union. Putin is a fierce critic of open society. From the get go, Putin has had the intention of controlling social media. He has used social media in the past to spread misinformation, fake news, and disorient and destabilize democracies. It was this strategy that Soros believes helped Trump win the presidency. Soros is fearful that these same methods will be used in elections in Netherlands, Italy, and Germany.

The Philanthropic Efforts of Soros

Soros began his philanthropic activities in 1979. Five years later, he formed and “Open Society Foundation”. Years later and Soros began dishing out huge amounts of money towards different causes. He established many foundations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. He currently has foundation in more than 70 countries worldwide. Soros’ main philanthropic activities target the refugees. George Soros has in the past pledged $500 million to organizations supporting refugees and migrant particularly those that are located in Europe. He has also shown his love towards PACs that mobilize marginalized voters. For example, in 2016, he pledged $3 million to a Political Action Committee whose aim was to mobilize Hispanic voters.

In 1944, the Nazi occupation of Hungary split Soros with his father who arranged to have them shipped out to England. While in England, Soros graduated from the “London School of Economics” and proceeded to be one of the most renowned and wealthiest investors in the world.

Study Conducted on PodcastOne

Norman Pattiz is a man who has had a significant impact on the media since it’s humble beginnings with the radio. In fact, Norman is known for pioneering some of the biggest radio channels in the country and is known for being a prominent member in the field of advertising.

His radio channels were known to be the leading broadcasters for numerous top sporting events in America like the Superbowl and the NBA.

But because of the dawn of youtube and other sites which can give their listeners the ability to listen to music whenever they want, the humble radio started dropping as a medium of mass communication.

Norman, however, wanted to show the world that the radio is still prevalent in this area of digitalization and decided to rebrand it as a podcast. Bringing this idea to fruition is his podcast company PodcastOne, which is one of the top podcast networks in the country.

Norman has partnered with numerous famous personalities from the field of media and film to collaborate with him and give his listeners quality content that they won’t get elsewhere. The podcast network has partnered with some of Hollywood’s biggest names like WWE star Chris Jericho, to give his listeners a diverse range of shows to choose from.

But when the podcast network took off, Norman felt like it still did not meet his expectations of what the future of podcasts or radio should look like. He thus decided to give advertisers a place to showcase their products, making the podcast network one that gains a lot out of advertising revenue.

It also currently holds the position as one of the top advertising driven podcast companies in the country. Learn more about Norman Pattiz: http://www.metro.us/boston/the-sports-podcast-revolution-podcastone-sports-radio-and-audio-s-future/zsJpjt—gEnNaaBqfWHbk/

But to make his podcast network succeed, and to get more listeners and advertisers in the mix, Norman paired up with Edison Research to conduct an in-depth market analysis to show the impact that these ads have on the people listening to these podcasts.

The results showed extremely high recall rates for a number of the products that were being advertised in the middle of their audio shows. By also knowing what products have a higher recall rate among the customers, Norman can now get in more advertisers with products that sell among his audience members.

According to Bloomberg, by making the podcast network more advertiser driven, Norman Pattiz can rake in the revenue he needs to invest into quality content to give his audience an all-around entertaining experience with PodcastOne.
