Lacey and Larkin: Battling Maricopa County

Sadly, it’s become normal to hear about someone abusing someone else’s rights. It is a bit shocking when that abusive someone turns out to be sheriff. Usually, reporters and law enforcers don’t clash so personally, but the case of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin vs. Sheriff Joe Arpaio was not a normal situation.

Briefly explained, Lacey and Larkin’s local newspaper, Phoenix New Times, wrote numerous stories about Sheriff Arpaio’s shady dealings. The sheriff became enraged and launched a full-scale attack on Lacey and Larkin’s human and civil rights. He even attempted to attack the rights of their employees and readers.

In stories like these, there’s always a lawsuit at the end. Whether the good guys win is always a tossup but Lacey and Larkin won their case.

They immediately committed their money to numerous migrant rights organizations all over Arizona. They also started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund to further help rights groups and free speech groups in their area.

The actions of Sheriff Arpaio speak for themselves. It actually got to a point where he couldn’t even defend what he’d done; it was that appalling. He actually used fake grand jury subpoenas to violate Lacey and Larkin’s rights.

His obsession with Phoenix New Time and its executives goes beyond wrong. He outright abused and violated every First Amendment right and human right of the duo. The man called himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff”. In reality, he was just a horrible man with far too much power to handle.

While most Arizona natives dismissed Arpaio’s actions, Lacey and Larkin saw him for what he really was: a power-abusing racist. It can easily be said that he hated Latinos, especially those that immigrated to this country. The fact that Phoenix New Times reported on all of his misdeeds enraged him more than anything else.

It goes without saying that people responded with outrage when they found out that Arpaio arrested two reporters for no reason at all other than personal vengeance. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

He didn’t just stop at arresting them. He wanted all of their notes and the personal information of all of their employees. He also wanted the names of anyone that might have read their articles about him.

Not even Lacey and Larkin believed the gall of the sheriff. His actions were deplorable, to say the least.

Don Ressler & Adam Goldenberg – A Business Match Made in Heaven

Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg might not seem like the kind of guys who would become friends, and certainly not the kind of guys who would go into business with each other, but with several successful brand name companies under their belts, and a recent rebranding of their most popular brand JustFab into TECHStyle the unlikely pairing seems to actually be a match made in business heaven.

 

It all started when at the age of 15 Adam saw an opportunity to start a small business that would fill a specific niche in the B2B market, offering an advertising platform for gaming companies. After a couple of years of successful growth, he sold his company to Intermix Media, and as part of the deal took a position at Intermix. It made him the youngest chief officer to ever serve on a board of directors filling the positions of COO and VP of the company.

 

Don Ressler also had an upstart company that he built to a thriving commodity which he sold to Intermix. The fitness focused site that Don had developed didn’t have anything to do with the laid-back gaming industry that Adam was a part of, but despite being so different the two became fast friends. Soon they discovered that the two worlds that they had been operating in, might actually be not so different after all and in the process laid out a plan for a new type of operating model that would combine direct marketing of great products to the end consumer who could then take advantage of superb savings on items that they regularly repurchase by means of a subscription retail structure. Out of a lot of hard work and talent grew their first venture Intelligent Beauty.

 

In building their new business model the two men knew that there were two major factors that they would be able to take advantage of which lead consumers to purchasing decisions, pain points and trends. One of the most important factors is that American consumers will become very agitated when they cannot find what they are looking for at a price that they feel is fair for the value. In terms of fashion and beauty products this means finding things that are currently envougue at a price and in sizes and colors that they actually want to buy when they are ready to buy them.

 

Another major factor that dictates the purchasing choices that Americans make is current trends and popular movements. In today’s world, however trends can change and movements can come and go quickly. Most people do not have the time or the desire to keep up with it all. They want solutions that can help them stay fashionable without a lot of effort or difficulty. The business model that Don and Adam developed addressed both of these factors at the same time, giving American consumers solutions that provide them with easy access to currently trending fashion styles and ensuring that they are offered in colors and sizes that consumers actually want at a price point that they can afford this is provided via a subscription model that helps to keep overhead low and reduces the amount of inventory and advertising costs associated with the operation.

 

JustFab and TECHStyle quickly became a success with consumers and have led to the development of other brands which utilize the same type of business model. With the growth of the retail subscription sector, as originated by Don and Adam, America has started to look at buying things that want and need in a whole new way. A combination of both brick and mortar stores and online shops has led to a new reality for American consumers, you can have it all, and you can have it at a great price, the instant that you want it. http://www.entrepreneur.wiki/Adam_Goldenberg

Don Ressler’s Entrepreneurial Road to Fabletics

Co-founder/CEO of Fabletics and serial entrepreneur Don Ressler has a natural talent for building winning companies. Beginning with his first startup FitnessHeaven.com, which he sold to the then parent company of MySpace.com Intermix Media in 2001, Ressler has built a long series of highly profitable businesses.

 

When Ressler became involved with the Intermix, the company’s COO at the time was a 19 year old entrepreneurial prodigy named Adam Goldenberg. The two realized the synergy formed during their business idea exchanges and partnered to start Alena Media, which quickly began generating hundreds of millions in revenue, becoming Intermix’s only profitable entity. Following Intermix’s acquisition by News Corp for $650 million in 2005, Ressler and Goldenberg formed their first incubator business Brand Ideas, which they later renamed Intelligent Beauty.

 

Intelligent Beauty’s enjoyed a success streak that motivated the company’s launch of JustFab, a subscription-based online retailer, in March 2010. JustFab had a highly-personalized model that involved new members’ filling out a “fashion personality test,” the results of which would be used to make handbag, shoes, accessories and apparel recommendations to its customers.

 

The business model was extremely profitable, with the firm disclosing that JustFab was generating $3 million per month in revenue and had 2 ½ million members. Ressler and Goldenberg were able to raise $33 million in Series A financing, put together by Matrix Partners and Technology Crossover Ventures.

 

By 2011, Intelligent Beauty, JustFab and two other businesses they launched were generating $250 million annually. Former model Kimora Lee Simmons joined the firm as president, investor and creative designer.

 

Ressler, Goldenberg and actress Kate Hudson started their athletic firm, Fabletics, in 2013. The JustFab founders spotted a gap in the sporting/athleisure market and saw in Kate Hudson what they wanted their new firm to represent. Being approachable, down-to-earth, good-natured and authentic were some of Hudson’s characteristics that made her a natural fit with the Fabletics vision.

 

By June of 2017, Fabletics was forecasting $250 million in sales for the year.

 

Since it’s opening, the company has had to overcome several challenges including personal attacks on Kate Hudson by the 1970’s musician Cher.

 

The firm’s success seems unstoppable, with 1.2 million members and sales growth of nearly 650 percent as compared with the same period last year. Fabletics has upgraded their inventory system to ensure that they had a ready stock of the more popular items. The company also maintains a top rating with the Better Business Bureau. https://onmogul.com/don-ressler
