The Educational Platform of Betsy Devos  0

Betsy Devos began her 30-plus years of business and political success as a student at Calvin College. In the early 1980s, she married billionaire Dick Devos with who she co-founded the WindQuest Group in 1989. The Windquest Group was and is a company that invests heavily in the technology, manufacturing, and clean energy industries. The couple has been incredibly successful leaders of the company, leading it to be one of the leading companies in the world.Devos also an active philanthropist, doing most of this extensive work with her husband through the Dick and Betsy Devos Family Foundation. But most of her philanthropic work has been political with specifically education in mind.

This aspect of her life has been huge since the 70s and has culminated in her recent appointment as the U.S. Secretary of Education. In a recent interview with Philanthropy Roundtable she fleshed out some of her educational ideals and passions. 30 years of work on the subject have not dimmed her passions and ideals; she remains as committed to developing her educational projects as ever. She is convinced that she has enabled vast progress and is equally convinced that much progress will still be made.She is most optimistic about the future her greatest educational passion, School Choice, especially now that she is serving as Secretary of Education directly under Trump, the top guy himself. But that is only one of her many, many concerns in the role.

Of the many other things she will have to do, probably the biggest and most important will be directly overseeing the $1.3 trillion debt program. Even now she is planning and instigating her strategy, a big part of which will involve giving year-round Pell Grants to low-income students. This phase of the plan began deployment on July 1.This system makes everything a lot simpler. In the former system, there were a variety of plans. So many that it often became confusing. Yes, this will make it less complicated which will be a very good thing. But the biggest benefit is that it will save a whole lot of money. Estimates say that the five-year saving could be around $130 million.

Why Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Has Amazon on the Run  0

While putting Amazon on the run might not be the correct term, there is one company that is giving Amazon a real run for the money as of late. To better understand how big of an accomplishment this can be, look at how Amazon is doing as far as sales in the online apparel market. They are destroying all the competition, and raking in over 20 percent of all the sales in this very crowded market. That does not seem to have concerned Kate Hudson’s Fabletics because they have been gaining ground these last few years and pulling in over $250 million in sales of workout apparel in the same space.

 

Listen very closely to how Hudson talks about her athleisure brand, it is more than just trying to promote the fact she is a celebrity, the merchandise is high-quality, or the prices are low. To hear Hudson, she is talking more about her unique membership program and the reverse showrooming sales practice instead. Drive over to the mall and look at how sales are taking place inside the Fabletics retail store. Here you will discover this in not your average shopping experience. There are women here trying on all the new active-wear, women taking the Fabletics lifestyle quiz, and plenty of women doing nothing more than window shopping.

 

Now where the real money begins to change hands is at the Fabletics e-commerce store. Part of the incredible perks of having a membership is that every piece of active-wear that you try on in the mall, from leggings, tank tops, to yoga pants, all gets transferred to your online profile for you to consider buying at a later time. The advantage of shopping online is that you will discover the inventory is much more diverse. So now that you have eliminated the size concern from the equation, you can simply shop and shop and shop.

 

Additional perks of the Kate Hudson’s Fabletics include discounts on all workout apparel, free shipping for online orders, and even your very own personal shopping assistant who uses those quiz answers to select items you may want to purchase down the road. Amazon should be paying very close attention to the success of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics because if they think this is just another company that will disappear, they are going to find themselves chasing a new top dog in no time at all now.

Oil and Gas Boss Tony Petrello Puts Wealth to Use as Philanthropist  0

Tony Petrello has been recognized year after year as one of the biggest names in the oil and gas industry and his compensation has garnered widespread attention. Less known is Petrello’s commitment to philanthropy, prompted by his daughter’s medical condition.

Petrello leads Nabors Industries as CEO

Petrello has led Nabors Industries Ltd., a holding company of Nabors Exchangeco (Canada) Inc. as the Chief Executive Officer since late 2011. He has also served as its President since 1991. In addition, Petrello also served as the Chief Operating Officer of Labors Industries Ltd. for two decades, from 1991 to October 2011. Tony Petrello total compensation package for fiscal year 2015 was an estimated $27 million.

Hamilton, Bermuda-based Nabors Industries Ltd. is an S&P 500 company that performs onshore well servicing and offshore drill rig servicing in North America. It also operates as a natural gas, oil, and geothermal drilling contractor throughout North and South America, the Middle East, the Far East, and Africa. The company boasts the world’s largest fleet of land-based rigs for drilling, which is serving the company well in the rise of shale fracking.

For Petrello, daughter’s medical condition inspires giving

Despite professional financial success, Tony Petrello faced a personal challenge when his daughter Carena was born prematurely at only 24 weeks and weighing less than one pound. Carena was born with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), a condition that causes significant neurological problems by restricting blood flow and oxygen to the brain. PVL is common among premature babies and can cause cerebral palsy, motor development delays, and other impairments.

Rather than let this heartbreaking news hold him back, Petrello took proactive steps to help Carena and others like her by donating nearly $7 million to the neurological research center at Texas Children’s Hospital and also serving as a member of the hospital’s Board of Trustees.

Tony Petrello earned a J.D. from Harvard Law School and went on to practice with the law firm of Baker & McKenzie as a corporate tax attorney from 1979 to 1991. Petrello then headed its New York office as Managing Partner from 1986 to 1991.

Livio Bisterzo And Green Park Brands Join Forces In The United States And The United Kingdom  0

Approximately a year after Ugly Drinks launched in the United Kingdom the sparkling water will arrive in the United States. This is a joint venture between Green Park Brands and Ugly Drinks. The sparkling waters are unsweetened and contain natural fruit flavors. The 12 ounce cans are available at more than 1,000 retailers in the United Kingdom.

Green Park Brands is an innovations food company based in Los Angeles, California. The company was founded by Livio Bisterzo and their first brand was an organic chickpea snack called Hippeas. Mr. Livio Bisterzo realized Ugly deals with the same segment of consumers and formed the partnership. The agreement is based on opportunity for both companies and according to Livio Bisterzo it is simple.

Ugly Drinks was founded by Hugh Thomas and Joe Benn because they felt most individuals were getting away from the traditional carbonated beverages and sodas. They also saw the struggle to find a brand they could turn to. The brand they have developed is designed to be vibrant, energetic and cool. The way it will be positioned should engage them in the marketplace and highlight the difference between this product and the sparkling water currently available.

Livio Bisterzo says Ugly will need the last two quarters of the year to assemble a team in the United States and make preparations for the launch of the product. The focus is being placed on the specialty and natural markets in the Northeast. Independent retailers will also be supplied and the company will be setting up a facility for production in the area. They want the facility relatively close to their distribution center to cut down on their carbon footprint.

According to Livio Bisterzo they are waiting to see how much velocity and traction they get from the partners and consumers who are in the field. They are also looking into the two current flavors available for Ugly Drinks, Grapefruit & Pineapple and Lemon & Lime. They are trying to figure out if they will be successful in the United States market and two additional flavors are being developed. For the near future the only product manufactured by Ugly Drinks will be sparkling water.
