The Manse on Marsh Accepts Second “Caring Star” Award

The Manse on Marsh has recently accepted the “Caring Star” award from Caring.com’s annual consideration. This award has very selective criteria for consideration beginning with a 4-star all-time average rating by customer review and ending with the requirement of at least one 5-star review between Dec. 1, 2014 – Sep. 30, 2015. The Manse on Marsh received an all-time average of 5-stars with 5 5-star reviews during the award timeframe. This is the second consecutive year that the San Luis Obispo County location for the company was awarded this honor.

The Manse on Marsh assisted living campus in San Luis Obispo County used a top of the line Care Planning System which enables the caretakers to fine tune all of the support for their residents. It includes such features as the point system that breaks down care into numerous categories such as medication management, meal reminders, grooming assistance, and more. This individual point system allows for very personalized care plans and also ensures that the resident and their family are only paying for the support they need instead of paying more for one-size fits all option like other assisted living communities.

The CEO and co-founder of Caring.com, Andy Cohen, stated that the “Caring Star” award was intended not only to recognize the quality of businesses like the Manse on Marsh but also help steer prospective residents and their families towards trustworthy communities that had strong reputations and consistently positive reviews. It is well documented in recent studies that most soon-to-be residents use internet-based consumer reviews as the main determination in choosing which community to trust. They value it even more highly than medical professional or in-person recommendations according to studies. In response, the Manse on Marsh Executive Director and CEO Logan Sexton noted that the winning the award a second time simply showed that residents and their families appreciated all the innovative and hard work that their assisted living community staff put into their day to day happiness and care.  Be sure to follow Manse on Facebook for continued updates on the facility.

Just Fab hits $1 billion

Just Fab, Inc. named a new CFO and COO, Tod Tappin, as of June 30,2016, who is known for his IPO transition strategies. His previous position at Rubicon Project, as their CFO and COO, guided them onto the public marketplace in 2014.

JustFab, Inc. is the parent company of Fabletics and Shoedazzle, and is worth $1 billion as of July 2016.
Shoedazzle, founded by start-up guru and former attorney, Brian Lee, attorney Robert Shapiro, Kim Kardashian, and represented by Kimora Lee Simmons, joined with Just Fab in 2013.

The Wall Street Journals quotes Mr. Lee as attributing the success of his many start-ups to pairing with celebrities with substantial social media stardom.  Learn more about JustFab: https://www.linkedin.com/company/justfab

Fabletics, a fashion athletic brand created by actress Kate Hudson, had $150 million in revenue, attributed to their e-commerce business, and plans to open 75-100 retail stores in the future. Six have opened at present and they attribute 40% of sales to current sybscribers.

Both companies, along with most under the Just Fab brand are subscription based shopping services, and have been largely successful in social media due to the famous faces behind the labels. Read more: Fashion Unicorn Startup JustFab Inc. Taps CFO With IPO Experience

Despite Mr. Tappin’s success at going public, he has chosen not to put Just Fab on the public market just yet. A wise choice perhaps, given the common practice of start-ups often being snubbed in their initial market openings. Currently, JustFab, Inc. has 3 million customers as of 2015 and growth has slowed considerably as of late.

Don Ressler: Leveraging The Power Of The Internet

Before the internet, women that wanted to find clothing that is signature, rare, or perhaps even one-of-a-kind would have to troll avenues in major cities to boutique- shop. These shops are often a bit stuffy, and one might have to go to several of these shops just to find one item of interest. Sites like “JustFab.com” have changed so much about the way we shop, and really it has changed for the better that founded by Don Ressler and his partner. One can find signature items, all just a mouse-click or swipe away, and have them delivered to their door the next day, in most cases. It is so nice to receive a box of clothing and accoutrements you have purchased, and those that you can try on in the comfort of your own home. Should you not like something, it is as easy as putting it back in the box, and sending it right back to the company in question. =

JustFab.com realizes it is in a very competitive space, so as to encourage customers to shop their site almost exclusively, they offer a VIP membership according to Don Ressler. The next time you want shoes, apparel or handbags, going to JustFab.com, creating a boutique for yourself of all your favorite items, and then becoming a VIP to earn member credits. These credits carry a monthly fee, but when you think about all the money in gas and parking you might have one-day wasted going to the mall, it seems slight in comparison. In addition, the option to “skip a month” is available to VIPs. There are also great sales that are run just for VIPs, so it is a nice program for those that are fashion-addicted!

Don Ressler is the mind behind JustFab.com, and he created this subscription-based, ecommerce fashion retail company in 2010, after having a lot of success with several other sites he has built over the previous decade. His first startup, FitnessHeaven.com, was purchased in 2001, and he went on to be a part of several ventures after that. Adam Goldenberg has been Mr. Don Ressler’s partner on several deals in the past decade, and JustFab.com is no exception. Together they have built a special online retail shopping experience that carries a very unique personal touch.

The general idea of this site is that items are hand-picked for you, based on stylistic findings as revealed by your shopping habits, and what you peruse when you browse the site according to Don Ressler. They also have every customer get started by answering a personality quiz. This helps them to get to know more about their shoppers and can help in targeted, marketing efforts going forward.

 

Happier Classrooms App By ClassDojos

The growth mind set appears to be the new buzz in learning circles especially at the elementary level. It is becoming more and more important to know the particular motivation which places learners on a fast lane in developing their mental capacity. ClassDojo is breaking this jinx with its innovative videos aiming to help teachers, parents and students learn about the growth mind set.

 

In a news article that appeared on Edsurge, ClassDojos is reported to have produced a show that uses critters as a learning strategy about “growth mindset.” The Fransisco-based startup has a series of five animated clips all on growth mindset. Each of the clips is accompanied with a discussion guide for parents and teachers and will be available on ClassDojos’ Big Ideas website.

 

The concept by Class Dojos’ is well researched and proven right by Stanford University’s Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS) with whom they have teamed up. PERTS is an important partner for the project given the group’s role in studying student’s motivation and resilience.

 

PERTS has with it, a sizeable number of teachers who they work with. They boast users in 1 in 2 U.S. classrooms. According to Liam Don, the co-founder and Chief Product Officer, this gives a perfect fit for ClassDojos who are looking to scale.

 

On the part of PERTS, this project gives them a chance to offer student-centred intervention, having had previously concentrated on just parents and teachers. They might have previously partnered with City Year and Khan Academy to disseminate the idea but it is with ClassDojos that they are doing animated clips befitting school children.

 

ClassDojos prides itself as a solution provider keen on developing the easiest way through which teachers can encourage students and extend their best moments to their parents. The mission of the company is to reinvent classrooms by bringing all the stakeholders pertinent to the leaning process in one platform.

 

The process over outcome approach used by ClassDojos in their solutions is part of their winning game. The potential of the app is apparent as evidenced by the amount of venture funding they were able to mobilise -a whopping $21 million.

 

Cruch base rates the company as among the fastest growing education-based technology companies of all time. Thus far, the company has made footprints in over 2/3 of US schools and 180 countries around the globe. With its solution in use, schools and classrooms are converted into closely-knit communities, connected by the belief that together, they will improve education.

Bringing Shaygan Kheradpir to Coriant

 

Strong leadership is always needed for a company, no matter how big or small that company is. The recent changes at Coriant, for example, are more proof that this sentiment rings true.

Coriant, an optical transport vendor that operates in the telecom industry has just recently appointed none other than Shaygan Kheradpir to the position of company CEO. Kheradpir earned the position simply by being a hard worker, notably by working very closely with the company’s senior management team dating as far back as early 2015, and cooperating with those vendors. Even when he was serving as an operating executive while working at Marlin Equity Partners his hard work did not go unnoticed, which is part of what got him selected for this new executive position. Kheradpir now replaces former CEO Pat DiPietro, who will serve as the vice chairman and also operating partner for Marlin Equity Partners.

Before Shaygan Kheradpir came to Coriant, he was simply a regular citizen, born in London, England but raised mainly in Iran after he moved there. When he came of age he enrolled in at Cornell University in the United States and moved there while he studied in the school of electrical engineering. Eventually his work there earned him a promotion that was to be him as the chief information officer (CIO) of the company.

In the year 2000 GTE and Bell Atlantic formed a merger and Verizon Communications was the end result of this. Kheradpir remained in the position of CIO at Verizon and his main goal was to manage small groups that would be responsible for developing any new technology that could be put on the market. One of the team’s big contributions eventually led to a better use for Verizon FiOs’ fiber optic initiative and digital video recording, effectively changing the way that customers could view and use live television. Kheradpir’s time at Verizon saw a significant reduction in the number of IT staff and budget needed to run the company. He was also responsible for cutting down on the number of purchases the company would make from vendors, particularly ones that had used failed business models to do work.
