There’s no secret that a successful company always has a successful legal backing to make sure that they are always on the right track. But the reality of finding a good lawyer for a company isn’t something you can just google.

Bruce Levenson: Former Atlanta Hawks Owner Has Given Back A Lot To Washington DC

Bruce Levenson and Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment (AHBE) have made some news recently in a court case regarding the team’s former insurance company. Levenson and AHBE sold the Atlanta Hawks back in 2015 to Forbes billionaire Tony Ressler’s group, but former General Manager Danny Ferry had attempted to file a complaint with AIG insurance which was subsequently rejected. AHBE decided to buyout Ferry’s contract and pursue legal action against AIG for failing to honor their policy. The case appears to be dragging out in court.

Bruce Levenson has been successful both as an NBA owner and as the owner of a publishing company prior to that. He graduated from Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and also attended law school at American University but never became an attorney. He first started as an editor for the Washington Star, a now defunct newspaper. But he soon began becoming interested in business and industry news, so in 1977 he and his friend Ed Peskowitz started their own publishing company in their own home. That company became United Communications Group (UCG), a company that originally started buying journals but has since evolved into a business startup and big data research company. They are also the founders of GasBuddy and the now independent TechTarget.

Levenson purchased the Atlanta Hawks back in 2004 and also bought the Atlanta Thrashers as part of the deal. He owned the Hawks for nearly 12 years. Levenson has also been invested in philanthropy in the Washington D.C. area. He’s been active in non-profit groups such as Hoop Dreams, Community Foundation of DC, and the “I Have a Dream” Foundation. He’s also given to the Holocaust Memorial Museum and started programs for young people to learn the importance of the event. He’s also given to Jewish organizations such as Birthright Israel and SEED Foundation. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html

Doe Deere Shares Her Secrets to Success

In a recent interview that Doe Deere did, she explained how she was able to make her dreams come true, with the success of her business Lime Crime, a makeup company with flare. She also wanted to explain how other young women can make their dreams come true as well.

 

Doe grew up in Russia, where as a child she figured out how to make temporary tattoos. She showed them around her school and started selling them to her classmates. This was her first entrepreneurial venture. Later she moved to New York City with her parents. New York was her stomping ground as a teenager and young adult. She currently lives in Los Angeles.

 

As a child, her big dream was to become a musician. She met her husband while playing in the same band. She says that playing in the band helped her learn about promoting and marketing. When she met her husband, they realized that they worked very well together, so it wasn’t long before they started Lime Crime.

 

Doe was always attracted to bright and unusual colors. In 2008, she found it very difficult to find these colors in makeup, because the trend had been more neutral colors. This is when she started making her own makeup. She says she was surprised to find that there many other people who liked the same colors. So, Lime Crime became a real company.

 

Their mission is to build a new way of thinking about makeup. They sell their products via the Internet, a new concept for makeup. They provide colors that are bright and very unique to the industry. They offer makeup that allows people to truly express their mood. All their products are certified as Vegan and animal cruelty-free.

 

When asked what she recommended to other young women with the entrepreneurial drive, she says to simply follow your heart. Find what really interests you and tune into it. You will find a way to build it into something successful. She claims that her love of color and flare, was the driving force behind her success with Lime Crime. So, whatever your passion is, is where you will thrive.

Anthony Petrello’s Call For Children’s Neurological Research

Sometimes those who understand the needs of various causes do so because they have dealt with them personally. Such is the case of Anthony Petrello, Chairman and CEO of Nabors Industries and a new spokesperson for children’s neurological research. Anthony Petrello is the father of a young girl named Carena who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, a condition that’s prevented her from doing many things that other young children her age are able to do. It was very hard for Anthony and his wife Cynthia Petrello to have to have to deal with, but with their gifts to the Texas Children’s Hospital and newfound friends who have helped them in their endeavors, the Petrellos have gone all-in in their efforts to help find cures for CP.

Anthony Petrello has come a long way in his career to be where he is today. He grew up in a typical New Jersey neighborhood just outside the busy metro area of New York City and the subject he did best at in school was math. So much so that he earned acceptance to Yale University and was considering going into the field full time after getting both his bachelor’s and master’s in advanced mathematics. He had a change of heart and decided instead that financial law was his thing, so he went to Harvard where he completed his J.D.

Anthony Petrello was in the corporate legal field for 13 years when he worked as an associate and later Managing Partner at Baker & McKenzie law firm in New York. While there he primarily represented affluent clients and performed services such as underwriting, tax guidance, arbitration and other financial law matters. In 1991 he accepted a position at Nabors Industries as Chief Operating Officer and in 2011 he became Chairman and CEO after longtime leader Eugene Isenberg retired. Petrello has helped Nabors invest in drilling technologies and develop proprietary software and automated systems. Nabors currently owns one of the largest land and offshore drilling rig fleets in the world. In addition to being Chairman of Nabors, Petrello is also on the boards of Hilcorp Energy, Stewart & Stevenson LLC and the Texas Children’s Hospital.

Goliath meet David: Here Comes Fabletics

There are many challengers to the mighty Amazon’s 20% stronghold it now carries in the fashion e-commerce realm but one, in particular, is standing up to be noticed; Kate Hudson’s Fabletics. If you are unaware of who Kate Hudson is, she is an actress and the daughter of Academy Award winning actress Goldie Hawn and actor, comedian Bill Hudson. In three short years, Kate has turned her Fabletics into a $250 million e-commerce empire.

 

First off, Fabletics is an online subscription retailer that is best known for selling women’s sportswear and accessories. Recently though, they have moved past offering only sportswear by adding swimwear and dresses to their inventory.

 

Fabletics relies on what the industry is labeling “reverse showrooming”. Showrooming, in general, is a term applied by the industry where people will browse for clothing in a physical store but then purchase those items at a lower price online. But Fabletics uses a membership model to take care of both offline and online shopping. It’s their membership model that allows Fabletics the ability to offer valuable personalized service as well as on-trend fashion at the price of their competitors.

 

In that regard, they have many physical locations as well as their expanding online presence. Because of this, and the fact that Fabletics runs many events and other activities, a whopping 30-50% of the customers who walk into their stores are already members with another 25% becoming members once in the store. Fabletics is taking this amazing data and turning into more physical stores, enhancing their e-commerce presence. Of course, none of this works if Fabletics can’t provide an extremely competitive price on their products, but this is where they shine as they try to strengthen their online position.

 

But how does one get started with Fabletics? It’s quite simple, but unique. The interested party takes a quick “pop quiz” which allows Fabletics to create personalized outfit recommendations that fit their specific lifestyle. As Fabletics adds to these recommendations, you will have the opportunity to choose from thousands of styles or accessories based solely on your personal likes. Fabletics also gives you the choice to begin as a guest or become a VIP Member which allows you access to shop for additional savings and fun perks.

 

Fabletics continues to grow. It’s presence in the fashion e-commerce trade is undeniable. But where they go from here is up to you. Happy shopping!
