Your Online Reputation Helps Build Your Brand

In our digital world that we live in today, most of the time the fast pace of new technology and all its offerings excite the masses. However, danger lurks online in a way that no one expected in the early days of online business. I am not referring to the ever-present threat of viruses and malware, but instead to a very real problem that if not addressed regularly, could spell failure for even the most robust of online businesses. The term “online reputation management” as described by onlinereputationreviews.com is relatively new and developed into a critical aspect of operating an online business. Reputation management is a sometimes overlooked, integral part of Internet business that is so crucial to a company’s online presence, that protecting its name is now more important than any other aspect of doing business online.

To be a credible organization, the company’s core values must align with the expectations that its customers expect. This expectation comes from how companies interact with their customers through advertising, the quality, and timeliness of their products, and how the company connects with its target audience. Credibility helps build the company’s brand, and from that comes goodwill from its online customers that creates a foundation of trust that will earn the company a good reputation in the eyes of their customers.

Awareness is essential

Reaching a high level of respect takes effort and constant monitoring of the company’s online reputation. All the employees of the company have a part in securing the company’s good online reputation because the interaction between staff and customers become the reason that keeps customers coming back. Returning customers are the backbone of most businesses, and should be considered as a primary contributing factor behind a good reputation, online or not. That said, it is imperative that constant awareness of the level of satisfaction that customers receive, and any online reviews about the company be held in high regard and continuously monitored to prevent negative experiences or reviews from damaging the company’s hard-won reputation.

Eric Pulier: Technologist, Investor, Philanthropist

Some people are just destined to do great things. It’s kind of like fate in a sense as the individual’s life has already been mapped out. Entrepreneur Eric Pulier personifies this notion perfectly because he displayed his life’s path at a very young age. Pulier always had a fascination with technology and in just the fourth grade, he programmed his very first computer. While he was in high school those exact traits continued to grow as he founded his first computer database company. The foundation had been set in stone in which it subconsciously sent him on this path to greatness.

 

Eric Pulier was finally out of high school and in 1984 he would begin his college life at the prestigious Harvard University. The American/English Literature Major had a very busy schedule with being the editor and column writer of the Harvard Crimson Publication. Also during this time Pulier was taking classes over at MIT since the schools weren’t too far apart. When being compared to his peers, Pulier plain and simply stood out. In 1988 he graduate magna cum laude, but it was now time to start his professional career and oh what a career it turned out to be. After moving to Los Angeles in 1991 he started a company by the name of People Doing Things. Being technologically gifted, Pulier used some of the most advanced technology to solve issues in education and healthcare.

 

This created a lot of buzz and propelled him into the spotlight. As of today he has been the founder of up to 15 companies, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity, invested millions in capital venture deals, and funded many tech start-up companies. This proud father of four is well beyond his years, but who knows what he will come up with in the near future.

Equities First Continues Growth Despite Stock Market Uncertainty

Individuals with over a million dollars in assets are referred to as having a, “high net worth.” The way that most of these people reached that status is by learning how to successfully position their investment portfolios for gains. Often this is accomplished using “non-purpose” capital. Equities First Holdings (EFH), specializes in high net worth lending. Equities First is involved in lending variable forms of alternate capital, often classified as “unusual” funding.

The type of funding that falls into the category of unusual most often requires Equities First to secure stock as collateral. Once, Equities First Holdings secures the collateral stock, they then provide working capital loans, anywhere from 60 to 80 percent of the value. The interest gains are attractive, because they benefit both the borrower and Equities. The average gain in the interest of these loans over a three year is a high three to five percent.

Equities First Holdings was founded in 2002 by Al Christy Jr. and just in the first eight years, the firm saw an increase in demand for capital loans. During those first years, Equities First Holdings, LLC., successfully completed over 400 loans. At that time, Equities First asset management portfolio was valued at an estimated $40 million.Fast forward to present day and the firm has seen a continual rise in its lending rates. This is especially impressive, because numerous constraints that have influenced lending criteria. Most notably after the US financial crisis, major lenders tightened the regulations and terms for borrowers.

Since Equities First provides secure working capital loans, the changes didn’t adversely affect their business model. As founder and CEO, Al Christy Jr. always monitors the collateral stocks that his firm manages. When asked about the valuation of high risk loans in challenging financial times, Al made this observation, “During a typical three-year loan term, market fluctuation is inevitable, but stock-based loans provide a hedge because the borrower is lowering his or her investment risk in a downside market.”

Equities First continues lending, because fluctuations of stock market prices won’t change the interest gained by the borrower. The working collateral loans provided by Equities are written with a clause that allows the borrower to opt out at any time, without penalty. This applies even if the value of the collateral stock decreases.

In December 2016, Equities First announced that it was granted a money lending license in Hong Kong.

Chris Burch Explains the Life of ‘Technology-Fashion’ Relationship

A few months ago, Chris Burch wrote an article keying out how technological advancements go hand in hand with the fashion trends. Chris Burch is a renowned entrepreneur who has been involved in a wide range of sectors for the last three decades. Burch is the founding father and the seating CEO of Burch Creative Capital. Burch has helped in the establishment of many different companies particularly in the fashion, hospitality as well as technological sector. In 2004, Burch partnered with his ex-wife in opening up the Tory Burch LLC which he continues to own a large share. Burch also invests on Trademark, a clothing venture owned by two of his daughters. Besides, Burch also invests on E.D, Poppin, and Jawbone.

 

Chris Burch was born in Pennsylvania in March 1953. In his early education, Burch was poor in class and got diagnosed with what could be termed as ‘attention deficit disorder.’ Chris Burch, now a billionaire remembers that it had reached a point that his parents were warned that he had a ‘wandering mind’ and so they should have less hope for him in the future. While in high school, his father used to put him to work on the construction sites and he found the work to be quite tiring and this got him thinking of the best and easy ways to make his life better.

In 1976, Burch and his brother founded Eagle’s eye apparel with only $2000. With the capital, the two partners bought sweaters for $10 which Burch was to sell to his classmates for $15. Their company slowly expanded and within a decade it had managed to make supplies to the national market and record over $140 million as sales. Burch has been in the fashion industry and closely associated with the technology industry for more than three decades. Therefore, the successful entrepreneur is well placed to explain the trends in both the technology and fashion industry.

 

Burch insists that both fashion and technology grow hand in hand creating some positive impact on each other. According to Burch, for example, a protective wear worn around the neck designed by Anna and Terese, cyclist’s airbag shows how technology can rely on fashion in need to protect their final users. Another instance is that of the firefighters wearing the Frontline Glove which were designed by Rajan and Cannon. This particular glove has ensured the safety of the firefighters as they are in a position to communicate clearly using signs hence preventing more accidents in the scene. Designers such as SegraSegra have used tubes of bicycles to make jackets and t-shirts. Emma Whiteside used old radiator copper to make a great gown. According to Burch, such designers portray the way in which fashion-technology relationship is headed, and that is more technological advancements, more fashion trends.

The Rapid Success of the EOS Lip Balms

The modern woman and man is more concerned about using natural beauty products. The concept of natural beauty products is not a new thing. Originally people made their own soap, perfume, and makeup out of mainly natural ingredients. Natural beauty products made a downward spiral when chemical beauty care products proved to be more efficient in some ways and were marketed everywhere. They were sometimes more effective in the short term, but in the long term chemical beauty products may have a negative impact on the health of a person.

The EOS company has quickly grown in popularity. In part this happened because they use natural and organic ingredients to help heal lips. Because so many modern men and women are concerned about using natural beauty care products, the EOS company deliberately chose to create a lip balm that was certified organic. They knew that by dong this they had a bigger chance of gaining more sales then other lip balm companies that don’t use organic or natural ingredients in their lip balms.

Another step the EOS company took to appeal to more modern generations was to change up the look of their lip balm (http://www.ulta.com/smooth-sphere-lip-balm?productId=xlsImpprod3490245). Sometimes the same old product makes consumers bored. This is why some soap companies make different shaped soap. This is why some shampoo bottles are vastly different depending on what company makes the product. The EOS lip balm company took that idea and changed the container for their products so they would have a signature look.

With the right marketing EOS became a $250 million company in just seven years. Instead of using the approach other beauty companies have, they took a leaf out of the book of the YouTube beauty vloggers like Michelle Phan. Michelle Phan has marketed several products on her channel and has even marketed her own makeup line on her YouTube channel and social media pages. EOS lip balm followed that marketing concept and marketed their lip balms with the help of YouTube vloggers. They also asked various millennial celebrities to try out to the product and speak positively about it.

Tapping into the thought process of how younger generations select products they want to buy on Racked has been the defining part of why the EOS lip balm was so successful. They have truly changed the way new products may succeed or fail in this modern world. Read the full EOS history on fastcompany.com.

 

Helane Morrison: A Look At Her Years With The SEC

When Brooklyn, New York native Helane Morrison took over as San Francisco’s SEC administrator it was a signal for local traders and anyone doing business in her jurisdiction to get and keep their ducks in a row. Morrison’s move from the San Francisco District Office of the SEC’s enforcement division to become administrator endowed her with more power to go after businesses with shady practices. That’s what she’s been doing ever since she joined the organization. Her promotion made it possible for her to expand the SEC’s presence and impact.

 

As SEC administrator Morrison took charge of the San Francisco office’s jurisdiction over both examination and enforcement programs. She was the first female chief of the district. Her district included Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Northern California, Northern Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Still, her plan was to keep the momentum the San Francisco office had created going. Since 1996 when she joined the SEC Morrison has overseen many major enforcement actions. Some of those investigations resulted in enforcement action against Dean Witter, California Micro Devices and Republic Securities of New York. During that time her staff doubled and the organizations workload increased tremendously.

 

Helane Morrison was San Francisco District Administrator for 6 years. After working with the SEC for 11 years, she resigned to become investment advisory firm Hall Capital Partners LLC’s chief compliance officer and general counsel. It was another great career move for Morrison. She had practiced law with San Francisco law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin for 10 years prior to working with the SEC. Her position with Hall Capital Partners enabled her to leverage the skills she gained through the years to ensure the company avoided issues with customers or regulators.

 

Morrison’s work at Hall Capital Partners has been so impressive she was promoted to managing director and made an executive council member. Not bad for a young woman that left New York to pursue a Journalism degree at Northwestern. During her time on the West Coast Helane Morrison has earned a Juris Doctor from the law school at University of California, Berkley. She has also clerked for U.S. Appeals Court judge Richard A. Posner and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun. Morrison has also developed a reputation as a defender of the rights of consumers of all ages.

 

Helane Morrison has accomplished much and she continues to make her mark in the San Francisco area.

Another thing to ask is what to expect. This way there won’t be any surprises with your surgery. You want to know what will happen and how it will go when you get done with the surgery. If there are any surprises, you want to feel as though you can call and talk to them.

When you are looking at Doctors for your surgery needs, you should be ready to ask a lot of questions so you know what you are getting into. The last thing you want is to not feel like your doctor is the right fit. It’s also important to make sure you know everything you can about the doctor and the surgery you are getting ready to have. Take your time and do your research. You can and will find the best Doctor for you and the surgery you are getting ready to have and that is the most important thing for everyone.
