Diversant is a large IT staffing firm that has offices in states across the United States. Since joining the company in 2010 Goullet has led it into being one of the fastest growing private companies in the US, according to Inc. Magazine.

John Goullet obtained his Master’s degree in Computer Science from Ursinus College in Collegeville Pennsylvania. He then worked as an IT Consultant for about 11 years when he then switched over to the field of IT Staffing. Due to working these two sides of IT he was able to build a deep knowledge of the industry and market trends. He went on to found IT Staffing company Info Technologies and provided staffing solutions to S&P 500 corporations as well as mid-market companies. He then decided to partner with Diversant and together they were able to expand their reach and revenues.

In an interview with ideamensch Goullet goes over his thoughts about IT Staffing and entrepreneurship. His biggest advise to do over and over again as an entrepreneur is to look at what the best run companies are doing and then emulate their best practices. He also advises that you need to hire the very best people you can, and give them a stake in the company. He also emphasizes having a largest group of trainees that you can and to create a culture of responsibility in your company.

He believes that new government regulations are business opportunities in the services industry. He states that any time the government comes out with new regulations there is a way to use them as a moment of opportunity for your business. He is also a firm believer in “productive paranoia”, which is a mentality to cultivate where you believe your competition is always one step ahead and so you need to push yourself and your company ever harder.

Anime Analysis: Lights, Camera, ACTION!

 

If you’re an anime fan, then you know that anime and action go together like oreos and milk. In the wide anime market you’ll find no end to the amazing and breathtaking ways it can take with it’s action. Some like it artistic and meaningful, while others are brutal and bring you no end to the gore. My personal favorites are Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure and Hellsing Ultimate. Jojo seems like fighting for fighting’s sake at first, but there is actually a lot of thought and strategy behind each fight. Hellsing Ultimate on the other hand, is just violence turned up to 11. It revels in showing you gore and tons of blood, though it still isn’t completely mindless. There are many others I can suggest, but let’s move on or I will be here all day.

 

The action genre has also given many memorable characters. The best two examples for 90s anime off the top of my head are Kenshin Himura from Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin in the West) and Naruto Uzumaki from Naruto. Kenshin Himura is no doubt my favorite anime character of all time. He’s a man slayer turned wanderer who is wants to bring peace without the killing. The man has a moral code not he is not willing to compromise. Naruto is pretty much one of the world’s most recognizable anime characters. While I fell out of the series personally, I understand why people like the character. He started off hate for most of his childhood, but became one his village’s greatest heroes through grit and effort. Both these characters in eyes represent high points in the genre.

 

So, in summary, if you want smart characters playing every battle like chess, or just violence in the most extreme ways possible, the action genre is for you. Pick up a few series today, find some list of the best, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Fabletics Success a Pointer to a Better Way of Doing Business

Competition in the fashion industry is cutthroat. The e-marketing fashion space is dominated by Amazon, which is not your usual two pence competitor; they’re one of the most recognizable brands internationally. The American consumer satisfaction index revealed that Amazon was the most popular company in America in 2014 based on more than 70,000 interviews. Currently, it commands 20% of the online fashion market.

 

In only three years, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has claimed a seat at the table with the big boys. Building a $250 million business in such short time is no small feat, but Kate Hudson’s has done it. They have positioned themselves as a high-value brand and using a mix of customer focused strategies, they have found success both online and in their physical stores. One strategy that is working for them is reverse showroom technique

 

Showrooming has been a threat to many real businesses. It entails a situation where customers visit multiple online stores with the intent of researching on quality and prices and then buying where the prices are the fairest. Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has found success with reverse showroom technique because they established an online shopping website early enough that has enabled them to create effective customer relations and brand loyalty.

 

Fabletics creates a membership through a subscription that allows them to offer personalized services. As much as 50% of the people who walk into their physical stores are already members. It is not hard to believe that another 25% of the other walk-in customers become members because Kate Hudson’s online presence has enabled to them to know what their customers want which is what they stock in their physical stores.

 

Kate Hudson had done her research before she started Fabletics and she seems to realize what people want. Fabletics sells athletic and leisure clothing through its online and physical stores and relies on the information they gather from their subscribers to know the local markets and to position themselves strategically. They have been able to build customer loyalty by offering high-quality cloth wear at much lower prices than their competitors.

 

This model has worked so well for Kate Hudson’s Fabletics that they are adding more physical stores to their sixteen current ones. They have already set base in places like California, Illinois, Florida and Hawaii. Like other companies such as Warby Parker and Bonobos, Fabletics is combining high-quality products with data science among other cutting edge strategies to compete effectively with Amazon.

The Lip Balm That Hatched a Nest Egg

Seven years ago, EOS lip balm, an egg-shaped container of natural, organic lip balm was introduced to the market with unexpected success. The creators of this product took the time to research a market that was otherwise overlooked to expose any vulnerabilities and found that this over-played market was ripe with opportunity.

This opportunity was born out of potential competitors assumption that the lip balm market was saturated and therefore and new product was doomed to fail. However, Sanjiv Mehra, EOS co-founder and partner, spent time to better understand the lip balm market and found that even popular products on Amazon like Chapstick and Burt’s Bees were resting on their laurels when it came to the product.

Devoted research found that lip balm is for women and aimed to design a balm that could please all five of the senses. Creators wanted something new that would be more than a fad and once they had an incredible balm, their secret weapon was millennial pop culture. Advertising traveled through Youtube, Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/eos/), and Instagram via fashion bloggers who fell in love with EOS and put a spell on their viewers too.

The evolutionofsmooth pod is adorable to look at and the shape feels good in your palm and is suggestive of a balm pot without the mess. It has a pleasing taste when you lick your lips and smells unique and natural. There is even a satisfying tiny “click” when the pod is closed. This is one egg, that like their company tag line states, will make you smile.

I Received A Magnises Membership As A Gift From A Friend

I was given a Magnises Black Card membership by my best friend, who already has a membership of her own. I noticed that whenever we would go to certain places, she was getting discounts, and I wondered where they were coming from. She explained to me about the card, but I never thought about getting a membership, but now, I couldn’t do without one. I’ve been a member for just under six months, and even though I haven’t paid for the membership out of my own pocket, it’s definitely paid for itself. I like going to nightclubs all the time, and I can easily go to a club up to three times a week.

Since I’m a club head, I chose to add the ClubPass to my Magnises account, which has been so amazing because I’ve been able to cut to the front line, I always gain entrance to every club that I choose to visit, and I visit a lot of clubs around New York City. Even the hottest club had a rapper performing there, and everyone had to stand in line to gain entrance, but a lot of people were turned away. I was so surprised that my Magnises credentials were able to get me through the door to see the rapper.

Some other great perks that I’ve enjoyed while using the card is the alcohol bottle service, which has been fantastic. I can purchase a bottle to get another one free, depending on where I go, which not only saves me money but makes the membership so useful. I’ve been to all types of restaurants that I used to have a hard time getting a reservation to, but my Magnises card got me through the door. I also was able to obtain discounts at these great restaurants too.

One particular pass I also decided to add to my Magnises account in the HotelPass because I may have times when I need to stay in a hotel around the city because I’m traveling or because I had too much to drink and won’t be able to make it home. The Dream Hotel is the one I stay at the most, and I get such great discounts to stay there that I frequent the hotel at least a couple times a month. I’m paying as little as $79 for my luxury room, and I even received upgrades in the past for free.

I almost feel guilty that my friend bought me the membership, but when my renewal date comes around, I will be paying for it myself because I am sold on Magnises and its benefits. I’ve been to several of the Magnises members-only parties because they have been extremely beneficial to me and the work that I do. I met a guy at one of the parties who worked in industry I was interested in getting into, and he gave me such valuable information that it made my night and was able to give me some perspective.

Thor Halvorssen Risks All To Bring An End To Injustice Across The World

In much of the world human rights simply aren’t respected. Across the developing world brutal dictators rule and use their power to suppress democracy, human rights, and other important basic needs any modern country has. Activists looking to fight against these injustices aren’t standing up to regimes that allow for dissent.

These activists risk imprisonment, torture, and even death as a consequence of their actions. With this image in mind it’s not hard to see why someone like Thor Halvorssen are such exceptional humans. Over the course of his 40 years, Halvorssen has led important organizations in the fight to advance liberty across the world. From the Foundation For Individual Rights In Education to the Children’s Peace Movement, Halvorssen has made a mark just about everywhere he steps.

One of the earliest but most important battles Halvorssen fought was against the slave labor camps of China. In 1999 Halvorssen led a movement to convince the corporation Lucent Technologies to adopt a strict policy against slave labor.

At the time he decided to take a stand against child labor in China the country had Laogai camps across the country with up to 8 million inmates held in these camps being used to make consumer goods. After convincing Lucent Technologies he moved on to focus on other important issues.

Halvorssen’s success in founding multiple organizations has produced many of the positive results he has become famous for. FIRE, the Foundation For Individual Rights in Education, he united both liberals and conservatives in order to advance personal freedom across the world.

While the company was successful in accomplishing this goal, its 5 year run came to a close. The next year Thor Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Foundation where he currently heads as it’s president. Through the Human Rights Foundation he continues to fight for individual rights across the world and for the establishment of free societies.
