Branding, Marketing, Fashion and Podcasting with Maddie Orlando
I’ve learned that you really have to fake it til you make it in the beginning. Even if the entire process isn’t clear to you, you'll figure so much out just by going through the motions. I also learned a lot in University and it was a really great period of time for me to mature and figure out what I wanted to do with my life, but I don’t think it’s always necessary. I’ve learned much more about what I’m doing now by actually doing it.

Paul de Jersey on Building a Successful E-commerce Acupressure Therapy Business
When we first launched, we didn’t have a brand, we didn’t have anything. We just bought the product and I started selling them locally to people I knew just to see if I could. We wanted to validate the product and concepts before we dug too deep into our brand and distribution strategy. We literally just bought the product and started selling it with no plan. I think that’s what honestly worked best for us. We just took it really in stride in the sense that we knew we were hustlers and we knew we could move them. We just started selling locally to stores without packaging. The first sale is one you'll always remember. Our first sale, I was talking to this trainer and he just said “I’ll buy a mat for 50 bucks” so I ran back to my house to get it. That was one of the first guys I talked to and he bought it.
Tom Wang On Building A 7 Figure Amazon Business
If you were to tell me in 3 years you’re going to have a seven figure Amazon business, have 5 or 6 employees and this going on the side I just wouldn’t believe you. I’m super grateful to be in the position I am today. Pretty much at this point I feel like Amazon is a business where you can automate it quite well because Amazon does a lot of the heavy lifting for you. My coaching business, I’m super excited about it because I know where I came from, I know there are’s other people out there who like me always wanted to start their own business and this is something that worked for me.

Merging Hardware and Software With Brandon Afari
chargeFuze is a great avenue to get into locations, build a new concept, and to solve a problem. We’re an advertising company as well and we’re building a foothold. This is similar to what Uber has done from going to ridesharing, to self-driving tech, and they’ve just pivoted into so much development that goes just beyond the simplicity of ride sharing. I think chargeFUZE has that same potential and opportunity to develop into so much more. This is a starting point to build a network and a framework. Once you have the user base and the location, you have so much control over what you can put out in the market.

8 Tips For The PA Application Process
1. Apply early. It is always a good idea to apply early. Applying early can help you avoid delays, allow for timely processing and improve your chances of being admitted to schools using rolling admissions. Rolling admissions means your application will be evaluated in the order received. This alone can increase your chances of securing a seat since most PA programs have very limited seats. 2. Volunteer as much as you can, medical and non-medical. I cannot emphasize enough how important patient care and volunteer hours are. Simply put, the more healthcare and volunteer experience you have the higher your chances to receive an interview. Not only will you be able to impress the application committee and be able to answer those “random challenging” interview questions, but also you will be more prepared for PA school.
Mindset During Times Of Uncertainty With Patrick Schwarzenegger
Success is such a funny word, it’s so relative to different people. For some people it could be that job promotion, or that raise in your salary, or finally selling your business for a hundred million dollars. If you don’t have the why connected to that success, once you reach it ,you’ll be hit with a wave of pleasure and it’ll wane ,then you'll be out searching for that next hit and rush of dopamine.
Creating A Distinct Video Production Agency With Your Story
At first it was just picking up the phone and DM’ing people on Instagram. Most of our clients were from direct contact, we were cold calling every day 20 or 30 people. We started sending messages on Instagram and using BombBomb to send videos of us pitching people, seeing how we can help them, and seeing what their goals were. The retention and what you get back from people when you seriously dig into their websites and make a personalized effort is amazing.
Local Marketing With Geo Landing Pages By Toolsy
With many businesses wanting to attract local customers and boost their conversion rates, having sound local marketing and SEO is more important than ever. Location-based results have a strong influence in determining which pages are ranked on the Google search engine. Geographically targeted landing pages include several technical elements that make them rank better than other pages, and in many cases help you outrank domains with higher authority (Backlinks).
HonorSociety.org Membership Review 2020
College is a pivotal time in a student’s life to learn, network, grow and seek new opportunities. One avenue many students look to give them a step-up is what’s called an honor society. So, what is an honor society? An honor society is a group or organization that evaluates, ranks and recognizes excellence among students. Many honor societies create groups around similar interests such as leadership abilities, academic excellence and overall character.
HeyTutor.com Review 2020
Recently, online tutoring has become one of the most popular resources of students of all ages to learn any subject or topic they want to. One thing that makes online tutoring preferred by most is that students can take their classes online either on a mobile device or on their computer. Plus, it’s relatively cheaper than in-person tutoring. Students love that they can have a look at different courses offered by different tutors and choose one that works best for them.

KANGABOOTS are something that are different and unique, and I’m just grateful that so many people have been receptive to them.

From Mechanic To Hollywood Real Estate Mogul With Jacques Massachi
What advice do you have for those that may want to pursue a career in real estate investing? I would recommend that anyone looking to get into real estate start by targeting one geographic area rather than being all over the place. Learn every street, every corner, and every property owner in one area. Find your niche and work it. Eventually, you’ll find out what that neighborhood needs, what it has too much of, what the traffic counts are and more. Get to know the movers and shakers, the Chamber of Commerce, and the neighborhood council.
How Frank Litvack Sold Conor Med for $1.4 Billion
We raised privately about $80 million, publicly about $200 million, and we sold it to Johnson and Johnson for $1.4 billion. From start to finish was about 8 years. I can write a book on that experience. In short, at the beginning when you work on these medical startups nobody wants to invest in you. They throw you out. All the best venture capitalists are rude to you, and you somehow cobble together some money. You get a few people to believe in it, and you make progress. Then, all of a sudden, everybody’s interested in it and everybody’s throwing money at you.
How Mark Blumenthal Became A Top Industrial Real Estate Investor
Any advice for those wanting to learn about getting into real estate? First, I’d start with Am I Being Too Subtle by Sam Zell. The second thing I’d say is to get an internship. Be it with a commercial real estate brokerage or with a commercial real estate investor, you have to understand what it is that you’re getting into before you just jump in and say, “This is for me. This is what I’m going to dedicate my life to.” I’m a strong believer in dipping your feet in the mix.
Industrial Real Estate Opportunity Amid Coronavirus With Mark Blumenthal
What is the biggest opportunity in commercial real estate post coronavirus? Industrial real estate is the biggest opportunity. A couple of things have presented themselves with the Coronavirus. First, the need for increased warehouse capacity. Look at the grocery stores. Look at the soft good stores. Look at all of the stores that are still open. It’s unlike anything anyone in the United States has seen before. Walking into a grocery store and seeing shelves empty. Produce is empty, toilet paper is out, cleaning product is out.
Photography, Writing and Creative Directing Tools With Lauren Moghavem
Build your identity as a photographer before anything else. Get your content together, build your website, set up your Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and FaceBook, and put your resume together. Then apply to apps like GPS Radar and send out emails to people you're interested in. If you’re in fashion photography, go to fashion capitals and do some street photography. Learn how to just snap photos really fast.
How Ryan Neman Built A National Tutoring Agency
It started off slow. It was kind of just a side business for us that we never knew would turn into this huge business. We were just two motivated guys that wanted a business to generate a couple extra bucks on the side. We wanted it to be something we were also passionate about. We made our way into one city at a time starting with Beverly Hills, and branching out into other parts of LA, and now the entire nation.
Harvard and Consulting Tools With Noah Stern
I was at Harvard from 2015 to 2018. I started at the Kennedy School, then HBS and then my third year I did electives across both schools. Both programs were fantastic and doing them in an integrated fashion was really valuable. The Kennedy School allowed me to go deeper on the public policy issues I find interesting. I got to hear from world leaders all the time. Leaders from abroad, U.S. senators, heads of state, ambassadors, diplomats, and nonprofit leaders across a wide array of topics.

Health, Wellness and Food Combining Tools With Kenzie Burke
I threw in the towel with everything else. I quit all of my jobs. I had about $500 in savings and I had no idea how I was going to do it. I just needed to pause for a second. I noticed how young girls perceived themselves. I saw that there weren't a lot of girls eating. I saw that there’s a lot of comparison, insecurity and hurt. I had felt all of those things myself. I wanted to do something about it.
Does Visualization Actually Work?
If you expect to achieve your goals, if you expect to reach your potential, if you expect to have your dreams come true. What I'm about to explain to you is mission critical. You must become a master at visualization. For those of you that are like, what the heck is she talking about? I did not sign up for some sort of meditation. Wooooo spiritual thing. Don't worry. This is Mel Robbins. There's always science and research involved in everything that I talk about.

How Neal Borsuk Became Los Angeles' Top Medical Interior Architect
Any advice for those considering a career in architecture? For architecture, I’d say visit SCI-Arc during thesis reviews and see what they’re doing there. I think it’s in September. It’s bloody incredible! I’ve been going to the Venice Biennale. Every year it rotates between art of architecture. It’s like going to a convention of architecture or art and you just walk the pavilions. It’s an incredible experience for your eye and your brain. I’ve been doing it for the last 4 years and I love it.
A Different Kind of Fitness With Pauly Solo
I am mercilessly honest. I don’t sugar coat things even if it’s to my own detriment. You could argue that I’d probably have 50% more business if I would water it down, put my arm around people and say, “Hey, we’ll gettem’ next time.” What makes me different is the confrontation. If you fail because you did not do what was necessary I am not going to allow you to leave the studio without forcing you to look at yourself in the mirror (metaphorically). Aside from the highest level of fitness, I’d say my biggest differentiator is that I’m going to tell you what you need to hear instead of what you want to hear.
