Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg Invest in Quality Fashion Intelligent Beauty

 

 

 

Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg are not only entrepreneurs but also, successful investors who have conquered the fashion industry. Don Ressler started off as a businessman when he established Fitnessheaven.Com. In 2011, the firm was bought by Intermix Media. Don merged with Adam Goldenberg who was the then Chief Operating Officer of Alena Media at 19 years old. Although the company made over millions, News Corp purchased it in 2005. Adam and Don were left out of the profit sharing business hence their decision to quit the business and form their company. Having known that they had excellent marketing skills especially online, they formed an advertising agency. The two held a meeting with the former team of Alena and developed strategies for the success of the company. Adam’s living room was their office. Brand Ideas was the name of the enterprise, but after two weeks, it became Intelligent Beauty.

 

 

DERMSTORE

 

 

Intelligent Beauty traded and harvested enough profits to form another company called DERMSTORE. DERMSTORE was a skincare cosmetics shop which offered its services online. Two years after its formation, it gave life to SENSA, a weight loss system. SENSA employed Dr. Alan Hirsch who was in charge of product development. The two companies never released profit statements though they made so much according to the growth reports. In 2008, the firm received a donation of $43 million from Crossover Ventures, a technology company.

 

 

JustFab

 

 

Having launched two companies from its commencement, Intelligent Beauty founded JustFab in 2010.JustFab accepted a donation of $33 million from Matrix Partners, which Don Ressler negotiated. Joining the team as President of the company as well as Creative Director was Kimora Lee Simmons. By December of the same year of formation, the company had registered four million people. In April 2012, JustFab announced its six million membership mark. Adam and Don Ressler raised another round of funding leading them to secure $76 million. The amount was generated from Rho Ventures, Crossover Ventures and Matrix Partners.

 

 

Fabletics

 

 

Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg discovered that through the success of JustFab in the first two years of operation, the firm started poaching investors hence its expansion in new markets. Since most of their clients were parents, JustFab invested in Fabkids in 2013. It also purchased European Online Fashion site called The Fab Shoes. End of 2013 marked a huge success for JustFab in Europe as it had acquired 3 million members. In October the same year, JustFab generated Fabletics. This marked the beginning of a high-quality athletic wear portal co-founded by Kate Hudson. The line focuses on providing athletic wear in all sizes for a healthier and comfortable lifestyle.

Cowboys Plan to Keep Rookie Dak Prescott as Their QB

The Cowboys suffered their second loss of the season when they fell to the New York Giants. The offense was nowhere to be found, and a lot of the blame has been put on rookie QB Dak Prescott. However, reports now indicate that the team is planning to stay with the rookie under center, rather than starting Tony Romo.

 

Prescott’s rise has been well documented. A mid-round pick who was passed on by every team multiple times, he was never intended to start. Then Romo, one of the highest-paid QBs in the NFL, got hurt in the preseason. Prescott came in, lost the first game — again to the Giants — and then won the next 11 straight.

 

The controversy is that Romo is sitting on the bench. He’s healthy again and it means the Cowboys have a ton of money tied up in a player who is essentially a backup. There has been talk that they could go back to Romo if Prescott starts to look like a rookie.

 

That being said, as long as the Cowboys were rolling off the wins, they weren’t going to change anything. You don’t make a move when the team has the best record in the NFL. The team still isn’t going to make the switch now, since they don’t want to overreact to one loss. They think Prescott can get back to winning and be ready for the playoffs.

 

This will absolutely be worth watching, though, if the Cowboys lose another game this weekend. They play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

 

Kanye West and Donald Trump Meet

Donald Trump doesn’t have a lot of supporters in Hollywood, but one celebrity has been supporting the President-Elect for a long time. Rapper Kanye West, famous for his support of Beyonce and criticisms of President Bush, recently  visited Trump Tower  to meet Trump in person. The two posed for pictures in the lobby and refused to answer any questions, with Kanye stating he just wanted to take a picture. Trump and West then headed upstairs for a meeting that included Ivanka Trump.

 

Sources close to the President-Elect have stated that West is not being considered for a role in the administration. He was in New York City to look for a new apartment and further his entertainment career. West did not mention his statement that he would be running for president in 2020.

 

West was hospitalized last month during a concert. His wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed recently, and his mother’s anniversary falls in December. West spent nine days in the hospital being treated for exhaustion before his release. The remainder of his tour was cancelled, and tickets were fully refunded.

 

Both West and Trump are known for their controversial, headline-grabbing statements. The two seem to admire each other, with Trump referring to Kanye as a long-time friend. In 2015, West attended a Hillary Clinton fundraiser with his wife, who has not commented on the election results.

Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie Will Tour Together

Two of the most successful singers of all time will soon be teaming up for a concert tour that is sure to be a huge success. Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey will be performing a total of 35 shows and the tour will get started on March 15th in Baltimore. This will be the first time that the pair of superstars have ever toured together. Lionel Richie first rose to fame as the lead singer and primary songwriter for The Commodores in the 1970s. After writing a string of smash hits for the group, Richie decided to go solo. This proved to be a wise decision. He went on to become one of the biggest selling musical performers of the 1980s. His 1983 album “Can’t Slow Down” sold 10 million copies in the United States and won the Grammy for Album of the Year. Ritchie also teamed up with fellow superstar Michael Jackson to write the “We Are the World” single to benefit impoverished people in Africa. It went on to become the biggest selling song of the 1980s.

 

Mariah Carey dominated the 1990s pop charts the same way that Ritchie had done in the previous decade. She eventually became the largest selling female solo artist in music history. Two of Carey’s albums have sold more than 10 million copies in the United States alone. There is some anticipation about Ritchie and Carey teaming up on the “Endless Love” duet that Ritchie made famous with Diana Ross in 1981. Carey also did a version of the song with Luther Vandross.

 

Brad Pitt Custody Filings to Remain Public

For a decade, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were the biggest celebrity couple on the planet. They were the darlings of the tabloids. Photos of the attractive pair and their many children were regularly posted on celebrity gossip sites. The couple recently called it quits when Jolie filed for divorce. The split has become a rather messy one because of the aforementioned children. Pitt wants to make sure that he is allowed a decent amount of custody. Pitt already agreed that the children will live primarily with Jolie.

 

Pitt was recently denied in an attempt to have all of his court filings sealed that pertain to the custody of his children. A judge ruled that the nature of Pitt’s request did not fit the criteria that is typically used to make it necessary for court documents to be sealed. Sealing the documents would have made them inaccessible to the general public and members of the media. Pitt attempted to have all future custody filings sealed after a custody agreement that he previously made with Jolie was leaked to the press. The leaked documents indicate that Pitt agreed to only see the children if a therapist was with them.

 

Pitt claimed that the reason he wanted all of the custody filings sealed was to protect the privacy of his children. All of the kids are minors. However, Jolie’s lawyers believe that Pitt’s actions are an attempt to protect himself from unwanted media scrutiny. It remains to be seen if Pitt’s lawyers will file any other motions regarding this matter.

Recently, her final film script, including notes scrawled by the actress in the margins, reached a modern auction. It carries a minimum reserve bid price of $20,000.

Marilyn Monroe achieved celebrity status as a sex symbol in Hollywood films during the 1950s. She spent much of her childhood in an orphanage after her mother suffered mental problems and became institutionalized. Following World War II, the young actress adopted the stage name “Marilyn Monroe” and appeared in a series of hit films. Her good looks and dyed blonde hair helped her win leading roles in popular movies, despite a lack of extensive stage experience. She starred in successful box office hits, including Niagara, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire.

 

After a 1946 divorce, she became linked with several famous men romantically. She married baseball star Joe DiMaggio, but that union ended quickly. In 1956, she wed playwright Arthur Miller, but they divorced in 1961. She reportedly committed suicide under mysterious circumstances in 1962.
