Adam Goldenberg Is At The Top Of His Game

One of the great things about the world we live in today is that anyone can do anything. There are no longer limits or boundaries out there for people. It is all about what the individual wants to do and how they want to do it. No longer are jobs just for men or just for women. If someone has the desire, the talent, and the dedication to do something, they can do it and no one can get in their way. Adam Goldenberg, who co-founded JustFab with his business partner Don Ressler, is living proof of that. He is everything that is great about the American dream.

One thing that helps Adam Goldenberg is his ability to have a keen insight into what is happening around him in all avenues of his life. Nothing gets past him. Goldenberg is very well-read and keeps his finger on the world around him. This allows him to have a business sense that is second to none and it also allows him to stay at the top of his game. When he notices something, he is quick to pounce on it, deliver it, and make it happen. Many companies fail because they are caught napping. That is not the case with Adam Goldenberg.

With JustFab, Goldenberg was able to see that more people were shopping online. Quite frankly, it is much cheaper to shop online and much easier. It is always great when things can be delivered to someone’s door as opposed to having to deal with crowds and high prices. He also noticed that a lot of people were unhappy with what they were finding in stores, and they would oftentimes come home empty handed. That is the thing about Adam Goldenberg: he is a man of the people. Adam Goldenberg stays alert at all times to what the public is saying and even more important than that, he listens to them.

That is how Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg came up with JustFab. It is a monthly subscription service for $39.95 and it appeals to the taste of the individual. A lot of times stores and big chains might think they know what the customer is looking for in terms of goodies and clothing, but in reality, they have no idea. This is for the customer and only the customer on digitalexperience.nrf.com. Each and every month for that low price, they can have something great to look forward to in their mail.

Diehl Appointed Chair of the ICTA

Philip N. Diehl, former director of the US Mint, is currently the president of U.S. Money Reserve, one of the world’s largest distributors of rare coins, currency, and bullion. He was recently named the new chairman of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA), an industry group representing businesses that deal in bullion and coins.

The ICTA represents its members and helps maintain good relationships with the government agencies and bodies that regulate the industry. It describes itself as the “watchdog” of the industry.

According to Crunchbase, US Money Reserve is well-known for his role spearheading the ICTA’s effort to amend a 2013 Minnesota statute that affected dealers and customers throughout the country.

Diehl put his experience with legislatures to work. One of the keys to his success at the US Mint was his success in convincing the Congress to exempt the Mint from appropriations and make the Mint a Private Enterprise Fund (PEF). Thanks to Diehl’s leadership and political acumen, the ICTA was able to obtain a change in the law in 2016.

Diehl’s appointment comes as no surprise, given his extensive background. During his tenure at the US Mint, Diehl doubled revenues to 2.5 billion and profits to 1.1 billion, while expanding the Mint’s staff by only five percent.

Moreover, he was responsible for setting up the Mint’s website, which quickly became one of the leading retailers of its day, earning $3 million dollars in revenue weekly.

As the new chairperson of the ICTA, Diehl plans to concentrate on expanding the organization’s membership base and finances, as well as fostering cooperation among the different industry groups that are active in the rare coin, precious metal bullion, and paper currency market.

Norka Luque’s Life in Music

This 30-year-old talented singer was born in Caracas, Venezuela, on February 7th, 1986. As a baby, her parents used to get her to go to sleep to the sound of music, and as a young child she delighted in singing, taking part in several singing competitions such as “The Golden Voice” and the Venezuelan folk music contest “School Festival of Gaitas”.

She remembers constantly thinking about music while studying Business in France and working in the Banking sector in Monaco. During those years she sang as part of a funk and rock band called “Bad Moon Rising”, an experience that prepared her for her current career as a soloist.

After relocating to Florida, Norka Luque dabbled in culinary arts, fashion, and marketing, but soon directed all of her energies towards developing a singing career. Her big break came when she met renowned musical producer Emilio Estefan Jr., who agreed to hear her sing and invited her to his studio to hone her talents and refine her interpretation skills, with the help of a professional team of producers including the Gaitan Brothers, Archie Peña and Luigi Giraldo.

In 2011, after 3 years of hard work, Norka released her first single, “Como lo haces tú”, which got her a nomination for a “Premios Lo Nuestro” award for Best Pop Female Artist of the Year. In early 2012 her second single “Milagro” was released. She produced this song in several different arrangements. Its Salsa version held the No. 1 spot on Venezuela’s Record Report for 14 weeks, while its Dance version in English reached the No. 11 spot on the Dance Club Billboard. An Urban remix version, a mixture of Caribbean, reggae, and Mediterranean sounds, produced in collaboration with El Cata, the Dominican urban artist, followed thereafter and became a major hit in the US, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico. Following “Milagro”, Norka released a third single, “Ese es mi cariño”.

Norka suffered a severe health crisis in 2014 due to epilepsy from which she has suffered since 2007. Following brain surgery in 2015, this talented singer has gotten her career back on track, releasing her last single, “Tomorrowland”, this past April.

Madison Street Capital Releases Its Annual M&A Overview

The recent release of Madison Street Capital’s 4th edition M&A overview of the hedge fund industry has given analysts an outlook of how the industry is expected to perform in 2016. The report was released in the first week of February this year. It covers global M&A opportunities, and transaction activities. In summary, the report shows that the transaction volumes in the sector increased by 27% while the performance in the industry went down. The report was released by Karl D’Cunha, the senior managing director at the international investment bank.

Madison Street Capital’s report is valued in the industry as it is detailed, non-biased and global. This year’s report showed that a total of 42 deals were closed in 2015, as opposed to only 32 deals closed in 2014. The increase in the number of closed deals, as measured by AUM, represents an increase of 27% in transaction volumes. However, it is important to note that most of these deals were closed in the last three months of 2015. This indicates that the deal momentum is expected to be stronger in 2016. This information was originally reported on PR.com as posited in the following link http://www.pr.com/press-release/657365/

From the report, analysts have been able to come up with two conclusions. First, institutional investors have noticed that traditional areas of investment in the hedge fund industry are not generating adequate returns. This way, they are allocating resources to alternative asset management sectors. This move is aimed at ensuring the firms can generate enough returns needed to keep them operational. These allocations have been made possible by the high value of assets in the industry, which are currently at an all time high.

Secondly, most hedge funds managers are operating below optimal portfolio levels due to the inability of hedge fund managers, especially smaller firms, to attract new capital. This situation has been worsened by the high pressure for lower fees currently facing the hedge fund industry. These two factors are forcing all hedge fund managers to look for strategic investment alternatives.
