The Success of WEN by Chaz Haircare Products

Haircare is one of the biggest and most profitable industries currently today. This is a multi-billion dollar field that covers a wide variety of products and services. Haircare is important, but not so much in a “vain” way. It’s more so a reflection of self, but did you know that many people aren’t properly taking care of their hair? Most people tend to make the same basic mistakes for haircare maintenance. Women love their luscious locks and tend to wash their hair over three times per week which is a mistake. This much cleansing actually strips the natural oil and moisture right from the scalp leaving you with dry, fragile hair.

Another mistake people make is by the use of extremely powerful formulas. These formulas may help you achieve a certain look, but they’re slowly perpetuating the issues of dandruff, dryness, hair breakage, and hairloss. The best thing to do is to stop using these products because they are full of chemical additives and these very additives are the culprits to producing greasy, bad hair. If you’re in need of some help with maintaining your hair throughout the year, Chaz Dean can be of some help. Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/) is one of the best celebrity hairstylists in the world.

Soros Bent On Denying Trump Presidency

George Soros is well known for his political and monetary contributions to the Democratic Party. He certainly was one of those who helped back the campaign of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election. It has been reported that Soros donated nearly $25 million to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and other major Democratic races throughout the country in 2016. While things did not turn out the way that Soros had planned, the billionaire hedge fund manager plans to get some of his other wealthy liberal friends in making sure that they can do all they can to interrupt a Donald Trump presidency.

George Soros has spearheaded a closed door meeting in Washington this week where some of the major Democratic fundraisers are attending. It is also being said that the Democratic minority house leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Elizabeth Warren are attending. Soros believes that bringing together the core of the Democratic Party now will help them set a new agenda and have hopes of derailing a Trump presidency. The most important thing is that they have their eyes set on taking back the White House come the election of 2020.

George Soros rises again

The meeting taking place in Washington is the first gathering of the Democratic elite since the lost election in November. It is believed that there will be discussions on local and national elections across the country over the next two years. One of the main goals of the new meeting will be one to discuss how to thwart the progress of Trump’s 100 day plan or his goals for his first 100 days in office.

One leading Democratic strategist says that Trump’s 100 day plan is one that is a ‘terrifying assault on President Obama’s achievements’. Other critics believe that there will be some strong looks at the Democratic Alliance by George Soros. The Democratic Alliance has been a major funding source and benefactor of the liberal party and their influence could be one that could help tip the political power in the United States back to the left. There are those that believe that the Democratic Alliance wields too much power and that they could actually be a part of the reason that the Democrats lost the 2016 election.

Democratic Alliance chairman Gara LaMarche though says that the party needs to pick up the pieces and that there should not be any ‘finger pointing’ and that all efforts must be made to ‘resist a Trump administration’.

The three day meeting is taking place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington. Some of the other key strategy points that the liberal meeting will be discussing is increasing voting turnout, the rethinking of the polling process, and the importance of channeling funds to local and state races.

Madison Street Capital Is A Global Merger And Acquisition Firm

Chicago-based Madison Street Capital’s reputation is not based on being a commercial lender or a bank. Senior Managing Director, Karl D’Cunha, likes to make that clear before any transactions begin. Madison Street Capital is a boutique investment firm that specializes in small and medium size mergers and acquisitions. Karl D’Cunha thinks Madison Street Capital is successful because the firm excels in capital restructuring, bankruptcy direction, buyout advice, employee stock option plans, tax compliance, business valuation and corporate governance. The restructuring advice, portfolio valuations, tax planning, business exit strategies and wealth management information that Madison Street offers clients is well above the norm in the investment industry. But Karl D’Cunha also makes it a point to tell clients that the firm bears no responsibility for lender performance when financing is involved in a transaction. Madison Street will identify possible financing opportunities, including, revolving credit facilities, debt refinancing, mezzanine and term loans, syndicated loans, secured lending facilities, and revolving credit opportunities. Madison Street Capital is a financial arranger, not a lender.

 

 

Madison Street Capital was founded by Charles Botchway and Tony Marsala. Both men have an extensive background in the merger and acquisition industry. Botchway is an expert when it comes to identifying companies that will perform better together, than apart. Marsala has been recognized for his leadership in the merger and acquisition industry. He recently received the “40 under Forty Award” for his work in the M&A industry. Tony was also recognized by the M&A Advisor Award program for closing a merger between Dowco, and a Mexican company. Marsala has a proven track record in the emerging market segment of the M&A industry. Read more: https://ideamensch.com/charles-botchway/

 

 

The investment industry is going through a transition period. Investors have been nervous about what’s happening in China, and they are nervous about the Feds reluctance to raise interest rates. Trump’s candidacy also played a role in keeping the investment industry guessing. Now that Trump is the new president, investors are pouring money into various assets. Trump may have played his election tune to the working man, but investors stand to make serious money in 2017, thanks to his political agenda. Madison Street Capital executives are gearing up for an excellent M&A year.

 

 

But there are issues in the industry that must be addressed. More big mergers and acquisitions will be put on hold in 2017, according to some investors. Madison Street Capital has no plans to change their place in the industry going forward. The big mergers don’t appeal to Madison Street executives. No one is sure what 2017 will bring in terms of regulation and policy changes. But Madison Street Capital is prepared to adjust, according to Karl D’Cunha. Adjustments are part of the firm’s business model.

Smart Moves By EOS

There were three founders behind the lip balm brand EOS. Jonathan Teller, Craig Dubitsky, and Sanjiv Mehra collectively had many years of experience in startup incubators and product packaging design. They were able to team up and consider what was missing in the market and develop a startup company who’s product packaging design was a major contributor to it’s success.

What were these little colorful orbs and what was inside? Nobody really knew because there was a lack of marketing information available. I guess the only way to find out was to pick it up and see what was inside. Consumers were not disappointed when they found a lip balm they didn’t have to stick their fingers in to apply. The natural formulation and delicate scents were different and could be used many times a day due to their gentle ingredients. They were healthy, fun and modern little orbs of lip balm. They were selling themselves.

Dubitsky left to form another startup and Teller and Mehra continued to develop the product by eschewing hype and marketing and instead investing time in a way to make their products in house. They had machinery made that could make their balms and products without having to rely on an outside manufacturer. This control enables them to turn out new flavors and colors every season, and to control how much or how little of the product they make. After their first success in Walgreens they were able to rapidly supply chains like Target, and Walmart. Online retailers ULTA and eBay soon began selling EOS products too.

It was only after they had achieved success on the shelves that they decided to broaden their marketing endeavors by featuring products in edgy music videos and using celebrity endorsements overseas from hip young stars to reach a wider audience.
