The contract, which entails building modular homes to support hurricane Harvey relief efforts has created several manufacturing jobs throughout Alabama, as well as Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Minnesota, and Florida.

While working at these respective companies, she broadened her breadth of knowledge in areas related to construction and management, and also developed leadership skills that play into her role as CEO of Green Structure Homes of Alabama. As far as the contract with Fema and U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Barbara Stokes is honored to support the government in their efforts to provide quality housing to displaced Americans, in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey. Stoke’s enthusiasm for giving back to the community is probably not surprising to the people that know her best. She has made several donations to charities based in Huntsville, AL, and has worked as a volunteer in several of the city’s communities.

What’s next for Green Structure Homes of Alabama? Well, the government contract that they secured requires that the modular homes being built to support hurricane Harvey relief efforts, be completed by March of 2018. So presumably, that is the company’s primary objective, at least for now.

Into the Philanthropy Game: Jason Hope

There is no denying the fact that technology plays an increasingly important role in our lives. Several jobs now include sitting in front of a computer 8 hours a day, and children are being given tablets in primary school. Our main form of connection is now talking, texting, and communicating via social media sites over our mobile devices. Jason Hope is one of the people who has been following these trends and has been successful at predicting which trends will catch on next.

Hope started to learn about emerging technologies and innovation after he graduated with his MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He is considered a futurist and prominent investor in the sector, and he has single-handedly helped hundreds of companies determine their investment strategies in technology and innovation solutions. He has made millions by detecting trends and getting on board with new, emerging tech, but now he has set his sights on philanthropy as another way of helping the world.

Even though Jason Hope is now in the philanthropy game, he has still focused on technology and new innovations the field. This shows by the organizations he is choosing to sponsor. Starting in 2010, Hope started to donate to SENS, and in that year he gave the foundation a half-million dollars to open a new research facility in Cambridge. Oddly enough, the SENS Foundation has one goal in mind: anti-aging remedies.

These remedies are not your everyday infomercial facial creams and diet supplements, however. SENS is heavily involved with trying to keep age-degenerating diseases from ever affecting humans again. By stopping these diseases, they would help millions of people across the globe to keep from aging more rapidly than they otherwise would. This, in its own right, would be a new Fountain of Youth. Because of the technological and scientific requirements of new discoveries such as this, Jason Hope was more than happy to donate. Since 2010, he has donated over $1 million to this cause. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance on the Internet of Things

Jason Hope continues to donate and work with several organizations and foundations that aim to make the lives of people better and invest in new emerging technologies. He gives annually to several charities, including the Arizona Science Center (where he also serves on the Board), the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and the T Gen Foundation. He will continue to go wherever new technologies take him, and his aim will always be the betterment of humankind in the future.  Jason Hope Pledges $500,000

Lime Crime Cosmetics Launches In China With Help From Revolve

Cosmetics company LimeCrime is using a nuanced expansion formula as they launch the brand in the Chinese market. The company faces a unique dynamic and has created a distinctive, innovative approach for how they will market their make-up in China. To sell cosmetics wholesale in China, animal testing must be done on the products. But Lime Crime’s a vegan brand and does not do animal testing. To avoid this requirement the company has to ship their products directly to the consumer. The company also faces complex transportation logistics, duties, taxes, customer inquiries in Chinese, international returns and counterfeiting.

Lime Crime’s solution was to partner with an e-commerce fashion platform based on Los Angeles called Revolve. The company only recently began expanding into offering beauty products to the type of consumer Lime Crime’s marketing efforts are designed to reach. To prepare to officially roll out its products in China, LimeCrime created a ‘seed audience’ by directing visitors to its website and social media feeds who live in China to visit Revolve’s website. The company also encouraged them to make others aware only Revolve has Lime Crime’s authentic products for sale on their e-commerce service. The unified efforts of Revolve and Lime Crime’s ‘seed audience’ have led Chinese consumers to understand Revolve is the only legitimate source of Lime Crime’s unique, authentic products in the country. The brand’s fans were able gain access to the Revolve e-commerce hub two hours before Lime Crime’s official launch and used word of mouth online to make a larger number of people aware of when the launch was taking place. LimeCrime worked with its group of passionate unpaid influencers to create a groundswell of local interest in the brand in China. Regular people that love the brand.

Revolve is there to speak on behalf of and promote Lime Crime. They are creating powerful, effective content about LimeCrime products that fits in with the brand’s standard marketing message. While Revolve and the Lime Crime ‘seed audience’ may not be ‘first tier influencers’, they have done an excellent job introducing the Chinese market to Lime Crime cosmetics.

Fabletics Taking On Amazon As They take Over Woman’s Athletic Clothing

Fabletics is the hottest name in women’s athletic fashion. And behind this fast-growing company is one of the most unusual co-founders of any company, an actress who rose to fame in a film called “Almost Famous.” Well for Fabletics co-founder Kate Hudson, her A-list status now stretches from Hollywood to Main Street.


Founded in 2013, Fabletics rose from near obscurity to a $250 million dollar athletic fashion powerhouse. The story of this unusual company started when the founders of TechSytle Fashion Group – Don Ressler, and Adam Goldenberg – wanted to start a brand that mixed athletic and leisure aesthetics. At the time, there was no such “athleisure brand” in the marketplace.


In order to sell this brand to the masses, the TechStyle Fashion Group founders turned to the first person they thought embodied the brand – Kate Hudson. And much to their surprise and elation, Kate took a hands-on approach to developing and selling the brand. This wasn’t the usual “endorsement from a celebrity.” The three Fabletics co-founders worked together to disrupt the marketplace.


Beyond the usual promotions and advertising, Fabletics innovated a new marketing strategy to bring their product to the masses. Known as the “reverse showroom strategy,” the brand targets customers who browse online and then buy products at a physical store. Also, when a customer tries on an article of clothing at a store and doesn’t purchase, the item is stored in the customer’s online shopping cart. This strategy helped increase the brand’s conversion rate.


Fabletics has grown like wildfire in their less than five years in existence. In fact, the company grew an astonishing 644% in 2016 alone. Today, the company has over 1.2 million members in addition to the consistent foot traffic coming into each of the Fabletics physical locations.


Of course, none of this success wouldn’t have been possible without the star and endorsement power of Fabletics co-founder and actress Kate Hudson. Known as one of the most physically fit actresses in Hollywood, Kate Hudson is a workout enthusiast who enjoys athletic activities like pilates and yoga.


Today, Kate Hudson continues to be active in the management and promotion of Fabletics. The company is also continuing to grow their product line while also expanding to more physical locations worldwide.


For those interested in Fabletics, you are encouraged to try out the “Lifestyle Quiz” on the Fabletics website. The quiz will match your lifestyle with Fabletics clothing that best fits your needs.

Glen Wakeman and His Commitment to a Good Business Relationship

There are a lot of people who think that the secret to success should always be kept precisely like that, a secret. However, people who think that way are usually those who do not achieve success.

Some of them even write books about their own personal methods on how to be successful, and some even freely tell it through video blogs or articles.
