Words from Darius Fisher

“Chance favors the prepared mind” is Darius Fisher’s favorite quote. We know this because Fisher revealed the information in a recent interview at the Small Business Forum at Web.com. Fisher spoke about the many things necessary for an entrepreneur to be successful. While the interview was not as extensive as other ones Fisher has given, there are some excellent insights to be found in the text.

 

Fisher’s company, Status Labs, is absolutely successful. The digital media and reputation management firm has attracted clients from all over the world. In the interview, Fisher mentions he was a copywriter before co-founding Status Labs. Upon launching the company, Fisher reveled in the opportunities provided to him. He does take his job as an executive very seriously. Status Labs’ success is a result of Fisher’s constant, committed hard work.

 

According to Huffington Post, in his role as president of Status Labs, Darius Fisher has taken a number of intriguing steps to improve the operation of the company. Being accessible to the media should be cited as an example of how he has raised the profile of the company and drawn in scores of clients. What may sometimes be missed is the many excellent employee-friendly policies he has instituted at Status Labs. An employee-friendly workplace is one that retains those people who are affiliated with it. Employee retention always plays a solid role in a company’s success potential.

There was a post about JustFab and it turns out, JustFab is introducing JustFab Plus, a line of essential and casual clothing at great prices. Being a subscription shopping service, a membership is required to shop at JustFab Plus, however it is well worth it. I love the use of real plus size models so I can get an idea how the clothes will look on me. From the sneak peak, the clothes look trendy, stylish and well made.

If you’re considering a membership at JustFab, get a VIP membership with exclusive VIP pricing. First, you take a fashion preference survey so each month; a selection is personally selected for you. You can always skip a month, without charge as long as you do so the 5th of each month, according to the JustFab website. Unlike other major retailers, JustFab does not charge extra for larger sizes; a pair of XS shorts is the same price as the 2XXL size shorts in the same style. JustFab lets people like me wear the same fashions as celebrities, without paying Beverly Hills prices. For example, there is a pair of black high heels on the JustFab website that Christina Applegate wore on the Tonight Show for less than $40 with VIP pricing. These are the exact same shoes, and they are stunning.

Soros Predicts A Future Financial Catastrophe

George Soros predicts that yet another financial crisis could be in the cards for and investors. This not only emphasizes a need for caution within investment, but also an need to be aware of market fluctuations. Billionaire George Soros was interviewed on a forum in Sri Lanka, relating his thoughts on the subject. This interview illustrates that the international struggle for financial stability.

While China attempts to find a new growth model on http://www.nybooks.com/contributors/george-soros/, the country’s currency devaluation is creating international unrest. Soros related that a possible return to positive interest rates will be a challenge for the developing world, paralleling the financial events that unfolded before 2008. The link between global currency, stock , and commodity markets currently seem destabilized as they were in the first week of the new year.

The yuan’s decreasing value is still a concern and there are signs that China’s economy will slowly move from investment and manufacturing, two industries that have dominated the Chinese sectors. The middle class is now promoting consumption and services. China will also suffer as $2.5 trillion was taken from total global equities this year through Wednesday. Losses in the market only increased within Asia on Thursday due to halted Chinese equities.

Soros described China has having “a major adjustment problem,” This inability to adjust has produced a volatile environment that seems unlikely to get any better. George Soros has had successful predictions regarding the market before, so analysts are ready to take heed. Investment in the yuan may also be risky due to political situations within the country. He points a comparison to Greece, which suffered such a serious financial crisis around 2008 that they country’s national historical treasures were to be sold off for debt compensation.

George Soros, owns a hedge-fund firm that has gained about 20 percent annually from 1969 to 2011, and touts a net worth of about $27.3 billion. Starting his career in the 1950s within New York city, he was able to gain a reputation for investing success in 1992. It was within this time period that George Soros netted 1 billion on the estimate that the U.K. would devalue the pound. George Soros has always had an ability to gage the volatility of markets around the world.

This time around, China is the source of instability is surging this year. The Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index on http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/03/10/billionaire-smackdown-george-soros-funds-effort-to-stop-trump-mobilize-latinos/, also referred to as the fear gauge, is up 13 percent. These number are alarming considering the additional Nikkei Stock Average Volatility Index. Data shows that the cost of Japanese shares protection has now climbed 43 percent in 2016. While some may be optimistic about the stability of the yuan, the international market is not transparent enough to make accurate predictions.

With this information in mind, it is advisable for investors to stay far from the yuan until international markets warrant a lower score on the fear gauge. While the 2008 crisis wiped the slates of many companies and individuals, many analysts may wonder if investors are likely to suffer major losses again, as the word is out and the caution within finance has increased significantly.

Hair Products that Actually Work

No one said that thick and flowing hair was something that was easy to achieve, and there are tons of women out there that struggle with thin hair that has little to no shine. Luckily, Chaz Dean has come to solve the problem, as he has created one of the best products on the sephora.com beauty market when it comes to volume lifting, shiny and hydrated hair, as Wen hair has absolutely exploded on the beauty scene.

If you have not heard about WEN Hair before, there is a good chance that you do not own a television or open a magazine, as there is a massive amount of exposure. This is based and rooted in the fact that Wen has delivered a huge amount of results, not only to those women that are dealing with flat, frizzy and thin hair, but also to anyone that is looking for some shine and some beauty to their hair. Emily McClure set out to find out whether or not the products that have been released by Chaz really match up to the hype, which Bustle originally posted, and she made sure that she would post her results and let us all know what happened. After deciding that she would use the product for a period of at least a week, she found that her hair felt better in the shower.

This is a distinctive thing that is very noticeable when you are talking about WEN Hair by Chaz Dean, as it truly makes your hair feel fuller. When you are massaging it through your hair, you are probably going to find that your hair is absorbing the moisturizing components, which gives hair that natural, fuller feel. She ended up being happy with the results that she got from using Wen hair, noticing that she had shinier hair that others noticed, as well as the fact that she lost less hair in the shower.

 

 

Philip Diehl The President Of U.S. Money Reserve Said Gold Prices Are Up

The U.S. Money Reserve is one of the world’s top distributors of gold, silver and platinum coins issued by the United States Government. Philip Diehl, the President of U.S. Money Reserve, is a seasoned veteran in the precious metal market. Diehl is the former Director of the United States Mint, and former chief of staff of the United States Treasury. Diehl was interviewed recently by ePodcastNetwork.com, and he shed some light on the gold and silver market.

Diehl said gold coins are in vogue with investors now, and that trend will continue in 2016. Diehl also said U.S. Money Reserve is in a position to help investors move from the stock market into the gold and silver market. Stock market investors are growing more and more skeptical. Professional investors say 2016 will not be a decent year in the stock market because of the China economic situation and the unrest in the European Union.

PRNewswire.com published a recap of the Diehl podcast interview. In that article, Diehl was quoted as saying the price of a troy ounce of gold will continue to increase in 2016. That prediction became a reality when an ounce of gold jumped 1.3 percent to $1,238.20 at the beginning of April 2016 in Europe.

The gold market veterans at the U.S. Money Reserve have been talking about golds popularity for the last year even though prices dropped in 2015. All the signs for a dramatic increase in the price of gold and silver are flashing green, according to Diehl (more on this article: https://twitter.com/moneyreserveinc).

The recent increase in gold prices in the European market is shades of things to come because Netherland voters rejected a European Union trade deal with the Ukraine.

Mr. Diehl also mentioned the fact that the Federal Reserve is planning to raise interest rates again in 2016, and that means another drop in stock prices. When professional investors get nervous about stocks, they turn to gold, platinum, and silver.

The Federal Reserve is weighing the uncertainties in the global investment market, according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal. The Wall Street Journal article said investors are betting that the Feds won’t raise interest rates, because of the China situation and European Union issues, but they are hedging that bet by buying gold.

Philip Diehl believes 2016 is the year when gold and silver prices will go higher than anyone expects.

New Technology For Gift Registry From Slyce

New Way To Set Up Gift Registries

Have you ever tried to set up a gift registry before? Most major retailers have computers and digital scanners that allow you to set up your own gift registry, so that people who are going to your wedding can buy you gifts. I was going to try this myself sometime soon with my wife, but then, I read an article from the Huffington Post about these types of new technologies. This article talks about the trouble that one couple had with the current gift registry systems. It also suggests another approach to starting a gift registry.

The couple in the Huffington Post article encountered some major snares along the way when they were setting up their gift registry. They found that the computer systems were outdated, and the scanner guns that the retailers had for registering gifts often didn’t work right. Then, when they actually set up a registry with a few stores they found out that the registry wasn’t working properly. They had already spent so much time setting up their registries, and they sent the information off to their guests already. This hassling experience can be avoided if we use some of the more innovative technologies that we have available to us currently.

Slyce’s image recognition can be used to take pictures of products in any environment, so you could possibly use this new technology to register gifts. It would be more accurate in terms of registering the right products since Slyce’s system runs off of an AI program. The system is currently checked and regulated by a team of customer care workers who work with the AI to make sure that it is continually suggesting the correct things for consumers.

This technology could be used by people to set up wonderful registries for their weddings. Slyce has partnered with major retailers already. They work with Neiman Marcus, Home Depot and several other major retailers to help sell their products. It works out for everyone involved. Consumers can download Slyce for free. The application makes life easier for the consumer because they don’t have to think of obtuse search keywords in order to find their products. Instead, the consumer can use Slyce to take a simple picture of anything in their environment that they want to purchase.
