Some people are incredible at promoting and advancing a brand, and when it comes to e-commerce on Huffington Post, the opportunities are out there, but the competition to outlast is cut-throat. Numerous companies end up shutting down.

California businessman Don Ressler is an example of “survival of the fittest.” He and Adam Goldenberg, his co-CEO of the popular online fashion subscription retailer, JustFab on TechStyle.com, are known as branding geniuses in the industry. They debuted the label in March 2010.

Don Ressler is also the co-founder with Goldenberg and actress Kate Hudson of the women’s active wear brand Fabletics.

He has been busy working steadily in the internet arena for some time now. At a young age, Ressler became savvy at brand building and developing new companies in e-commerce. He was very successful at raising capital and generating huge sales.

Don Ressler sold his fitness start-up, Fitness Heaven, to Intermix Media, and that is where he first met Adam Goldenberg. The two worked on the e-commerce division of Intermix, creating major revenue for the company, and eventually the pair left Intermix and established their own incubator, Intelligent Beauty, in 2006.

From there, Ressler and Goldenberg kept launching brands and driving commerce on LinkedIn. Many had warned Ressler that selling fashion online wouldn’t work, and that the concept was best left to peddling books and CDs. However, JustFab and Fabletics keep soaring to new heights, as women from around the world sign up to become VIP subscription members to receive great deals, variety and value.

By the way, JustFab Inc.’s business name has been changed to TechStyle Fashion Group. However, Ressler reveals that TechStyle Fashion Group remains the umbrella company to Fabletics, ShoeDazzle, JustFab, FL2(for men) and FabKids. All of these Golden State start-ups continue to thrive rather handsomely, because the fashion and accessories offer appealing on-trend designs, affordability and great quality at http://brandettes.com/interviews/don-ressler-of-fabletics/. Former model Kimora Lee Simmons serves as the company’s president and creativity director.

There are three attractive reasons why El Segundo, CA was chosen as the perfect location for TechStyle’s headquarters. The company is settled nicely in spacious surroundings with healthy room for office expansion. Then there is the convenience of El Segundo bordering an international airport. Thirdly, TechStyle is close to the beach.

While others tend to tread water in the challenges of e-commerce branding, Don Ressler is swimming comfortably along the waves.

In the age of globalization, it has become increasingly important for both government and multinational companies to understand the nature of international legal system. Without learning about the similarities and differences between the legal system of two nations, it is impossible for governments and private entities to forge better relationships with stakeholders in other nations. Accordingly, comparative law is the study, which compares law of different countries.

Besides, focusing on the legal systems of a country, the comparative law also looks at variations of law in various regions including common law, civil law, Hindu law, Jewish law, and Muslim law. In fact, understanding the nature of secondary law is sometimes more important in an ethically diverse nation or in a country riddled with conflict. By making comparisons, lawmakers can help institutions and policymakers make better decisions.

It is also notable that comparative law is divided into several disciplines, which includes comparative constitutional law, comparative administrative law, and comparative civil law, among others. Actually, comparative law can be interpreted as micro or macro analysis of a legal system of two countries. Overall, the purpose of the comparative law is to get a deeper knowledge of the legal system of two countries; to help policymakers and other stakeholders formulate better regulations on a broader scale; and to contribute to the unification of legal systems of countries.

Perhaps, a viable example for the need of comparative law is the need for unification of law during the formation of European Union. Therefore, in this globalized world, comparative law can prove vital in devising laws that affects two or more than two countries. It is also important to understand that comparative law differs from other similar fields of general jurisprudence such as international law.

One of the leading authorities in the comparative laws is Sujit Choudhry, who has a wide ranging impact on the constitution building process in many countries. His in-depth knowledge of legal affairs in countries such as Egypt, Jordan, Libya, and Ukraine is used by policymakers to understand the nature of conflict. Professor Choudhry has law degrees from Harvard, Toronto, and Oxford.

Although November 2015 news that Groupon board of directors have replaced Eric Lefkofksy as CEO, a company that he was instrumental in founding, the entrepreneur will remain 2008. This has hardly held Lefkofksy back as he has already moved onto other major ventures.

One of which has been Uptake, a company co-founded with a longtime friend and business partner Brad Keywell. The company, capitalizing on tech’s love affair with big data, uses advanced data science to improve the major company operations and safety. To date, this venture has raised an approximate $45 million.

It has since been named no. 1 on FORBES Hottest Startups in 2015 after a billion dollar valuation. Lefkofsky and Keywell have had their fair share of successes. In addition to Uptake they have also founded venture capital firm Lightbank, a Chicago company specializing in investments. Helping over 100 companies, including several high-profile companies BeachMint (e-commerce)and Coffee Meets Bagel (dating app).

His latest venture is Tempus, a health-tech company letting physicians deliver top-tier results, delivering personalized cancer care. This is possible, once again, due to big data, although a more scientific data set is used for Tempus. Computational genetics is driving ground-breaking research innovations, and this has been of great value to many. Tempus uses an interactive analytical and machine learning platform. It provides genomic sequencing services that not only analyze molecular and therapeutic data, it also gives physicians real-time, data-driven decisions making capabilities.

This technology company has ultimately been championing the fight against cancer through a personalized approach, however it is also a great resource for new researchers. The genomic sequencing services made available through Tempus will be available for a wide network of physicians who desire to analyze molecular and therapeutic data for further cancer treatment. Each patient can contribute to the future of patient care through genetic analysis tools.

Tempus has done this through development of an operating system made specifically with cancer treatment data. Tempus has access to a technology platform that joins anatomic and molecular information to clinical data stemming from medical systems all over the country, and this is why Tempus is truly delivering results. Lefkofsky, the company CEO, concurs that Tempus has plans in the pipeline for better and even more personalized treatments for cancer. The goals of Tempus reflect the CEO’s personal commitment to creating better cancer care for the future.

Lefkofksy is a native to the Detroit area. He would later go on to attend the University of Michigan earning his undergraduate and law degrees. Lefkofsky started his own business after being spurned by a girlfriend in his freshman year of college, selling carpets.


Long-time equity portfolio manager Timothy D. Armour was recently named Capital Research and Management Company director, chairman, and CEO. Amour has over 30 years of experience with investing. He spent all of them with The Capital Group Companies. He joined the company when he graduated from Middlebury College in 1983 with a degree in economics. He came on board as part of Capital’s The Associates Program and worked his way up to equity portfolio manager. Amour was promoted to take the place of former chairman Jim Rothenberg who died recently.

Armour has served in a wide variety roles during his more than three decades with The Capital Group Companies.

His consistently excellent performance has made Amour highly respected and trusted within the company. Amour, who is currently based in the Los Angeles office, takes over the company at a crucial time. Instability in the Chinese market has left many investors feeling uncertain.

But Timothy Armour doesn’t think investors need be alarmed. He sees a country in transition to a open, consumer-led economy suffering growing pains and feels economic analysts need to use new assessment tools to get a more accurate reading of the Chinese market movers. Armour also sees opportunity for savvy investors to identify and invest in strong companies during this period. Chinese internet companies he thinks represent a great opportunity. He points to their higher valuation versus large, U.S. based internet companies as part of the reason the Chinese companies are an attractive investment option.

Armour says he expects China’s economic growth, although slowing, to still outpace those in developed countries. That will allow multinational companies doing business there to continue to thrive. Armour even sees the recent global economic crisis as having strengthened the international financial system in developed economies. He points out troubled assets have been removed and capital ratios in U.S. and European banks have improved significantly. He said the company has investment professionals worldwide using this period of volatility to get attractive prices for excellent companies.

Armour believes in fund managers being active and earning their keep by finding the best vehicles and opportunities for investors. That’s part of the reason many see him as the right choice to lead The Capital Group to continued success.
