Adam Goldenberg can look back on quite a list of accomplishments in his career, including making his company, JustFab into a “unicorn.” He and Don Ressler co-founded this company back in 2010, and it’s received a large supply of venture capital funding. By early 2014, that venture capital totaled enough to put JustFab’s valuation at over $1 billion, making it a “unicorn.” Goldenberg said while he feels a deep sense of accomplishment on Vator.tv, reaching unicorn status isn’t something he lets get to his head. He does feel it’s an important mile marker for his company and for the fashion industry as a whole as JustFab starts becoming the face of the market.
Adam Goldenberg started out in digital marketing when he was only 15, starting a gaming advertising network called Gamer’s Alliance. This company was bought out three years later by another digital media network, Intermix Media on CNBC.com and Goldenberg was hired at this company. Intermix Media would later found MySpace, and Goldenberg at only the age of 20 became the company’s Chief Operating Officer. In the coming years, he would work closely with Don Ressler, the founder of FitnessHeaven.com who he had become close friends with, and together the two made plans to take Intermix Media to the next level.
Goldenberg and Ressler built a subsidiary company under Intermix Media called Alena Media, a company that generated revenue from advertising as well as e-commerce. But that would be short-lived after News Corp bought out Intermix Media and decided not to continue with Goldenberg and Ressler’s company. The two decided to leave and start their own independent company, and it began with Intelligent Beauty in 2006. They sold various health and cosmetic products, and other miscellaneous items to start with, but then they decided to start a fashion retail company.
They began JustFab with very little knowledge about fashion. In fact, Goldenberg would tell you he didn’t even know the difference between a Mary Jane and a peeptoe. But his connections with other fashion personalities helped fuel ideas for the company, and he and Ressler began implementing a cost-effective way to sell merchandise at a very affordable price on businessoffashion.com. JustFab soon began offshoots from its main hub including Fabletics, FL2, FabMen and later they bought out ShoeDazzle. JustFab also attracted celebrities including Kimora Lee Simmons, and Kate Hudson who recently became the president of Fabletics. It was recently announced that JustFab will be changing its name to TechStyle Fashion Group at http://www.crosscut.vc/adam-goldenberg.

Brad Reifler has been an investor for a couple of decades now. Through his time in business, there are lessons that he has learned and would like to share with people that are thinking about investing, especially the younger generation. He states that following these principles are the foundation that can help one start creating a great portfolio as early in life as possible.
Creating a budget
Brad states that just like businesses make an annual budget, the individual needs to come up with a monthly budget they will be following. The budget will factor in the amount of money they are earning and the fraction of that money they want to be spending on the different parts of their needs.
According to Market Wired, Brad Reifler states that having a good culture of saving is recommended, but it would even be better if they had a culture of reinvesting the little they save for better returns.
Understanding net salary
One thing that one would think is common is the practice of people looking at their pay stub to figure out how they earned. He states that it is very important to look at one’s pay stub.
This is what reveals how much you earned, how much you paid as federal taxes and the net amount you are to receive after the payments. Crunchbase revealed that these deductions are the reason Brad Reifler states that one gets paid less than they actually earn.
The role of compound interest
The greatest thing about making savings for retirements is that the money earns interest over time. As you continue saving, the interest becomes part of the savings, creating bigger saving and more interest.
This means that by the time one retires, they will have a good amount of money in their accounts by the time they get to their retirement.
Technology is taking over everything. What we see, what we touch and what we know is fully connected to technological advances that have influenced the world in one way or another. In its historical march, humanity is linked directly, though not always visibly, with artifacts, invented and built by itself. Technology modifies the social and political landscape, affects the economy and organizational structures, disturbs and modifies cultures. It also creates diversity in the contexts of information and communication; it has invented and perfected in function of the own life of man.

With an endless number of investments and scattered venues, Mr. Becker considers that passion is the key to an entrepreneurial mindset. When bringing ideas to life, he combines what he likes with what he wants to see change or evolve. In a recent feature by The Real Deal, focused on bringing real state close to the society and staring with investments in New York City, he expects to make intelligent real state choices and smart design, to help bring people together what he considers to be the most important part of our communities today: technology.
