What Was The Motivation For Colibri Studios

 

I was a television producer in my previous career. This required me to spend a lot of time working to bring other people’s ideas to life. I later became more interested in the creative aspects of content creation. From there the idea for Colibri was born. I needed a place where I could bring all of my own ideas to fruition under one umbrella. Colibri is that place for me.

 

What Is A Typical Day Like For You

 

A day for me begins with meditation. This allows for me to begin each day with renewed energy and focus. I usually share a light breakfast with my family before commuting to the office. I take a moment to focus on the day’s objectives and then work until around noon. I eat lunch with my family every day. Lunch is the main meal for my family and also provides us with quality time together. My afternoon work schedule is much more flexible than in the morning. I take the time to return emails, read, or even watch television.

 

What’s An Exciting Trend For You

 

Virtual Reality. There is a push now to use VR technology in many positive ways. Education, healing, there is even the possibility of granting a dying patient their last wish. Personally, I am most excited about what VR can mean for education. This technology seems perfect for museums, allowing for them to create new types of exhibits.

 

What Habit Makes You Most Productive As An Entrepreneur

 

I mentioned meditation. Meditation is very important to me. I also try to nurture my creative spirit. But some time I just take a time out. Taking a moment to laugh and play with my son really keeps me grounded by reminding me of what is truly important to me.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Not Afraid to Compete with Amazon

The online apparel market is littered with businesses who thought they could compete with Amazon on one level or another. Regardless if you lower your prices or increase customer service, Amazon simply continues to make 20 percent of all the online apparel sales year after year. One company is not afraid to go after the retail giant, and they are closing the gap faster than anyone could have predicted. Kate Hudson’s Fabletics not only is moving to pass Amazon in sales of women’s active-wear, they are looking to build on their $250 million in sales they accomplished in only three short years.

 

When Hudson was asked to share some of the secrets to the success of her athleisure brand, she gladly talks about only two aspects of her company, reverse showrooming and her membership perks plan. Hudson says by focusing on these two areas, her company has been able to bridge the gap to Amazon faster than any could have imagined. Look at what is happening inside the Fabletics retail shops in any mall, you see women of every size and age trying on all the workout apparel, window-shopping, and even taking the Lifestyle Quiz offered by the company to enhance membership perks.

 

To the surprise of the competition, many shoppers actually leave the store without busing anything. Hudson says that is just fine!

 

The reason shoppers leave the Fabletics retail stores empty-handed is because they know each of the pieces they wore inside the store was instantly uploaded to their online account. That means they can continue on with their busy day, then hit the online site and just keep shopping. Since they now know how each piece fits, they can shop confidently and grab new colors, styles, or arrivals, and fill the cart with far more than they would have considered buying at the mall.

 

The Fabletics customer is being pampered every step of the buying process, and it has certainly been a key to the explosion in growth of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics. Each member is given free shipping for all their online orders, they are offered preferred member discounts throughout the year, and they even get the assistance of their very own personal shopping assistant. This is no ordinary shopping experience, Hudson has found a way to keep the customer engaged and happy either in the mall or at the online site.

 

Amazon and eBay are not set up to pamper in this manner, part of the reason Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is poised for big things this year.

Under Auriemo Neto, JHSF is expanding portfolio and assets under managment

Ever since JHSF Participacaoes was founded in 1972, it has continuously been expanding. Starting out from just a regional developer, it has become one of the largest and most important luxury development firms in all of Brazil. This progress has taken off at an exponential rate throughout the reign of Jose Auriemo Neto as its chief executive officer.

Under Auriemo Neto’s leadership, the firm has grown from a developer and property management firm with less than $50 million under management into a multi-billion-dollar, publicly traded company. Today, the firm is currently managing tens of millions of square feet of the most sought-after luxury real estate in the country of Brazil. It is also owner of a property portfolio that includes billions of dollars in assets under management. This makes JHSF Participacaoes not only one of the largest real estate developers in the country but also one of the largest asset management companies.

This explosive growth has taken place as a direct result of Auriemo Neto’s perspicacious vision. Auriemo Neto saw early that Brazil had tremendous potential, far greater than anything that it had already realized. Auriemo Neto believe the Brazil needed to shed the stereotypical image it had throughout much of the world as a third-world backwater that was only worth noticing for a few nice beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. Auriemo Neto went about transforming the country from an underdeveloped, poverty-stricken nation to the leader of Latin American luxury real estate and second homes for the global elite. To know more about him click here.

One example of a development that has dramatically increased the interest in a Brazilian city for the global rich and famous is the development of Parque Cidade Jardim. Located just off one of Brazil’s busiest highways, Parque Cidade Jardim is a sprawling complex of nine luxury condominium towers, four Class A office space towers and the largest luxury mall in all of Brazil. The development has millions of square feet of the most luxurious office and living space anywhere in the country. It is also one of the few places where people can currently shop at such stores as Luis Vuitton, Reebok Academy and visit a Cinemark mega-theater.

Through innovative luxury developments like these, Auriemo Neto is helping to take Brazil into the 21st century.

Betsy Devos Makes Serious Changes in Education

The reality for people that are looking at the education system is that there is a need for improvement. Betsy DeVos has put a lot of time into helping people realize this. She knows that there are a lot of changes that needs to be made, and she has doing all that she can to ensure that more people see that there are improvements in education.I do believe that Betsy DeVos is making a great attempt at improving the education system, and I think that everyone is going to be impressed with the way that she handles the change in education reform. Betsy DeVos is putting a lot of time and effort into the concept of building better charter schools. This is a very interesting concept in my opinion because it really challenges more people to look at the benefits of school vouchers and how kids can get a better education even if they are not linked to a great neighborhood environment.

There certainly is a discrepancy in education in different areas, and I think that Betsy DeVos is going to have a lot to say about helping kids get an education regardless of where they are living. So many people have struggled with improving the education system, and it appears that people are always looking for a better way to help their children get educated. Parents are all for the charter schools that Betsy DeVos has put in place because they know that this is going to equate to better opportunities despite where they may live.Betsy DeVos knows that the education system is broken, and she is trying to do her very best to make sure that more people benefit from a greater level of education improvement under her watch as Secretary of Education.

I don’t think that people realize just how much Betsy DeVos has dedicated to education. A great portion of her life is rooted in philanthropy. She has given greatly to the education system. She has put for a lot of effort to make improvements on education with her husband, and I think that this plays a major part in how well she is able to make improvements in the system. More people are looking at the education system now that Betsy DeVos is bringing all of this attention to it. I think that this is great because it means that more people are going to pay attention to what is wrong. For a long time people have just been looking at the education system and really not paying any attention to what is actually wrong with it. Betsy DeVos, in my opinion, has made it possible for more people to see the improvements.
