Handy Guarantees a Clean Home for the Holidays

Let’s face it. Sometimes you don’t have time to clean. In fact, towards the end of the year, it’s virtually impossible. Not only are the kids involved in school and after school activities, you’ve got work, shopping and other errands to do. In addition, the Holidays are coming up. This means that even if you’re going to someone else’s house for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years, you still might have to cook.

Even if you don’t have to cook something to contribute, you might not have time to clean. You might have one event to go to; or you might have several. People with large social circles often have many events to go to throughout the Holiday season; and this is just what’s possible. According to pepinherstep.com, for the most part, everyone is responsible for having guests over for at least one event and likely several.

Peace of Mind

Even if you do your best to clean your home for company, you’ll never do it as well as a professional cleaner will. Have you ever looked at the maid’s cart at a hotel and wondered what was in all those bottles; or casually watched them clean and spray an empty room while you waited for an elevator? Perhaps a maid has even shared a tip or trick with you that finally made you realize:

  • The products they use are different,
  • Their systematic methods are more efficient and provide a more even clean,
  • The products they use are more effective, and
  • The experience they have gives them more methods at their disposal to get rid of stains, disinfect and everything else you need them to do

Professional cleaning services are great. In addition, there’s a new business that makes finding the right maid quick and easy. Handy is a new app based cleaning service, where you can order a qualified home cleaner on-demand. The cleaners are well-screened and extremely professional.

$17 Million Reward Shows How SEC Whistleblowers Are Changing The Financial Industry

The head of the SEC whistleblower program at Labaton Sucharow, Jordan Thomas, has a long history of working with investors and financial professionals who have been the victims of financial wrongdoing; the reputation of Thomas as a financial expert saw him involved in the creation and writing of the Dodd-Frank Act that laid the groundwork for greater regulation of the U.S. financial industry. For the past six years Jordan Thomas has been working with the Labaton Sucharow law firm as the head of the SEC whistleblower lawyers that has recently announced the award of the second largest SEC payout to an individual whistleblower of $17 million.

Jordan Thomas has created a team of financial experts, investigators, and attorney’s who are all looking to bring evidence of financial wrongdoing to the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Labaton Sucharow believe the first step any potential whistleblower should take is to discuss their concerns of financial wrongdoing with their team of qualified experts, who will investigate the claims and evidence presented to make sure the complex rules and regulations of the SEC have been broken before presenting the evidence to the SEC.

The $17 million payout shows how seriously the SEC are taking the regulation of the financial industry as whistleblowers providing high quality evidence can be awarded between 10 and 30 percent of any fines paid based on the evidence of the whistleblower. The challenge for any whistleblower is to make sure they have evidence of the rules of the SEC being broken that is presented in such a way they receive any financial reward provided for them; Jordan A. Thomas and his team are determined to make sure they guide their clients through the process and receive the highest possible payout after fines have been levied by financial authorities.

Anybody who has even the slightest interest in the working of the financial community will understand the complex nature of the work of the SEC, and will know how difficult many of the regulations can be to understand.

Former Hawks Owner Bruce Levenson Files Lawsuit Against New Hampshire Insurance Company

Former ownership group of the Atlanta Hawks, led by Bruce Levenson, has filed a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company (also described as AIG) for a breach of contract over settlement claims made by former general manager Danny Ferry. The AHBE says that Ferry asserted the claims were covered. Despite these assertions by Ferry, the claims were not paid out by AIG.
Levenson, originally from Washington DC, attended Washington University in St. Louis before going to law school at American University back home in DC. In 1977, he founded United Communications Group, best known today for developing the mobile app Gas Buddy, which broadcasts current information on gas prices to its users.

In 2004, Atlanta Spirit, with Levenson as a majority partner, purchased the Atlanta Hawks from Turner Broadcasting, known best for CNN. At the time, Levenson also purchased the Atlanta Thrashers (a member of the NHL). The Thrashers were later sold in 2011. From his time of purchase of the Hawks, Levenson has also been a member of the NBA’s Board of Governors. Levenson hired Danny Ferry as general manager in 2012.

Levenson, of Jewish descent, went with his wife and basketball team to the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. in March of 2014. In addition, Levenson brought his mother-in-law Irene Boyarsky with the team. Boyarsky is a Holocuast Survivor. Levenson and Boyarsky discussed the experiences and impact the Holocaust had on his family both at the time, as well as the influence it continues to leave both on his family and community today.

Later that year according to Forbes, Levenson agreed to sell the team to the team’s current owner, Anthony (Tony) Ressler. Included in the group that purchased the Hawks is former NBA player Grant Hill and Spanx founder Sara Blakely. Ressler’s group purchased the Hawks for $730 million.

Madison Street Capital founder and CEO welcomed the nomination by M&A Advisor, saying his employees appreciate the recognition for their tireless efforts.

Understanding the Entrepreneurial Journey and Achievements of Don Ressler

Don Ressler is a dedicated professional with a great career as a businessman and his journey in entrepreneurship is a motivation to many young people looking to establish successful businesses. He has managed to come up with startups that have grown into strong and competitive businesses in the area of online retail subscription.

The first attempt at running a business for Don Ressler came when he launched FitnessHeaven.com, which performed well and within a short duration he sold the company to Intermix Media with the sole aim to raise funds. During these developments, Ressler met with Adam Goldenberg and they partnered in his next step to form Alena Media. Adam Goldenberg was then the COO at Intermix and his ideas were much similar to the vision Ressler had.

In 2005, Ressler and Adam handed over Alena Media to News Corp in a bid to raise funds for a bigger venture. The capital they got through this deal went into the establishment of Intelligent Beauty, which came with several brands. One of the brands that came together with Intelligent Beauty is DERMSTONE, a cosmetics marketplace and online skincare store.

The company further invested in more brands and two years after inception, they came up with SENSA, as weights-loss brand that contributed a lot to the growth of Intelligent Beauty on entrepreneur.wiki. Although Intelligent Beauty did not release results and information about their performance, they recorded massive sales from the two brands in two years.

Ressler and Adam Goldenberg had similar experience in online marketing and prior success was a tool they could use to advance their practices in online businesses. They were motivated to start a new business, which would operate as an online subscription retrial namely JustFab.

About JustFab
JustFab, launched in 2010 by Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, is a fashion-focused online subscription retail. They appointed Kimora Lee Simmons as the President of the company in 2011 and this was followed by strategies to expand its online presence. This growth needed funds, so they approached Matrix Ventures and agreed on $33 million funding. They also in 2012 approached several venture capitals and were awarded $76 worth of funding to help the company penetrate into other markets, specifically the UK, Canada and Germany.

FabKids
JustFab acquired FabKids in 2013 and despite the similarity in names, the two companies existed as completely separate entities. FabKids offers fashion and accessories for kids and operates in a similar manner like JustFab.
