Whitney Wolfe Herd Changing the Rules of Dating through Bumble Dating App

Dating can be complicated, mainly when you have found your date online. The people these days are wary of using dating app, but at the same time, can’t help using them. It is because their lives are too busy, and have little option but to use dating apps to meet strangers. It is with one of those strangers they hope to fall in love and settle down eventually, but it is a far-fetched dream as the journey of using dating apps can be the far end of extremes, and sometimes it’s all about luck if you know what it means. However, for women, the bitter experiences with using dating apps is part and parcel, and no matter whom you ask, they would say that they have often woke up at the wee hours of the night to see their inbox in dating app full with unwanted messages and pictures.

Whitney Wolfe Herd founded Bumble dating app to help women get rid of such experiences and provide them a clean background with using dating app. Bumble has strict rules in place for abuse and bullying, and some moderators ensure that no members go against the rules or strict action is taken against the members who go off-track while using the app. In Bumble dating app, men cannot message female members unless female members contact the male members. It ensures that the women are no swamped with a long list of messages from men, which eventually female members have to delete, sometimes even without considering. Nothing of value comes out of such system where the female members are not given the space to think about whom they are interested in or would be excited about talking or meeting.

Whitney Wolfe Herd has introduced some unique features in Bumble, which has helped women to be in control of the dating game. Bumble has more than 12 million members currently, and more members by thousands are joining the app. The Bumble dating app has been giving its arch rivals heavy competition, and even dating giant Match.com recently offered acquisition offer of $450 million, which Whitney Wolfe Herd, CEO of Bumble, rejected. Whitney has studied International Business at Southern Methodist University and is based in Austin, Texas. Badoo, one of the most extensive dating based social networks, owned by Andrey Andreev, is the majority stakeholder at Bumble. Whitney Wolfe Herd was glad to announce recently that the company made sales of $100 million in 2017, and that the figure would multiply manifolds in the years to come.

A Brief Story of Why Adam Milstein Is The Man To Emulate

We have many leaders today that are trying to change the world. These leaders have the skills, attitude, and virtues to deal with the challenges of the modern day environment. But, we don’t have that many leaders today who are willing to put their neck on the line to defend the values they choose. Fortunately, there are people like Adam Milstein, an activist who puts his money where his mouth is. He’s an activist and has the experience to show for it. This is an article to enumerate some of what he has done.

Israel Army Participation

Did you know that Adam Milstein was once a conscript of the Israel Defense Forces? That’s right. In the age where everyone just wants to appear brave and virtuous, Adam seems to have skin in the game by actually putting his life on the line. He literally put his life on the line by risking it. How’s that for setting as an example? It was Nassim Taleb who said that real virtue has to have real risk involved, and because of that, people who show the real proof of their sacrifice would be worthy of emulating.

We could also add here that Adam Milstein was also brave enough to join the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Being part of the tragic war means that he was able to fight with the Egyptian Front, most especially under the leadership of General Ariel Sharon. This is not the real reason why you should consider Mr. Adam as an activist that’s worthy of being an example. It’s the fact that right now he still shows some skin in the game that makes his efforts stand out.

The Businessman

You may be able to get the man out of his roots, but you can’t get the roots of a man. That said, the roots of Mr. Adam Milstein is still in business and that is why right now he’s still part of the expanding real estate business of his father and why he’s still in the business of creating construction projects that truly improve the lives of people.

Clay Hutson may be best known as the man behind the awesome concert you just went to.

Recent Successes

One of his recent successful events was the DiGiCo’s very first SD11 console debut. The tour was headed by Staind frontman Aaron Lewis, who just released his country-inspired solo album called Town Line. Mr. Lewis has performed in several concerts ranging from 700-seater functions to crowds of 50,000 contained in arenas. Clay Hutson performed several roles in this event as he was involved in the sound engineering and tour managing of Mr. Lewisunder DiGiCo.

 

Another successful ongoing event where Mr. Hutson managed several aspects of safe production was in OneRepublic’s Honda Civic Tour. Not only sponsored by a big car company, top performers One Republic were also high profile musicians in the industry. He was assigned to make sure that all rigs and LED sets were safely attached, but still meets the idea and design meant for the tour production.

 

Previous events that occurred during the summer were DiGiCo’s SD7 systems installed for the summer tours by artists such as Rihanna, Eminem, Jay-Z, and U2. These artists are provided with the best tools in sound engineering offered by Clay Hutson and his team.

Passion is the Answer

Reasons Why I Love the Fabletics Reverse Showroom Model

One of the brands I’ve been most impressed with this past year is Fabletics. The brainchild of actress Kate Hudson, Fabletics is an “athleisure” wear company that is bringing the trendiest of athletic wear to over a million monthly subscribers. I will admit that I can’t stand going into a physical store these days. The prices are typically higher and the overall experience has me waiting in lines or sifting through clothing to find my size (not to mention trying on clothes under hideous fluorescent lighting is always a horrifying experience).

 

That is what I love most about the reverse showroom model used by Fabletics. Instead of physical locations, Fabletics has an entire showroom available on its website. The best part is that when you visit Fabletics website for the first time you are invited to take a simple Lifestyle Quiz. The quiz contains just a few questions on what type of workouts you like to do. It also gathers sizing information. After completing the quiz, you only see the styles of clothing that cater to your specific taste and are available in your size. The idea is genius.

 

The reverse showroom model is also excellent is due to the fact that an online showroom gathers data from every visitor. This helps the marketing team know what items are popular and ensure everything is stocked properly to always meet member needs. Because Fabletics is a membership model, people receive a full outfit each month, rather than spending hours filtering through a mass of items.

 

I should have expected nothing less from Kate Hudson. She is known for her acting, yet has really showcased her business acumen. She founded Fabletics to fill a niche in the world of athletic wear. Women had access to either low-budget clothing that didn’t last, or extremely high-priced athletic wear that offered little originality. Fabletics was designed to fill that gap. Fabletics offers quality athletic wear in a huge variety of styles that can all be bought at an affordable monthly rate.

 

Kate isn’t just the pretty face of Fabletics. The company is truly her baby and she is deeply involved in its success. Kate partnered with TechStyle Group to found Fabletics with the vision of it being something new and fresh. From day one Kate has been involved with directing social media, advertising and selecting the styles that fit the Fabletics brand.

Black Friday week is still going strong! Shop the sale in stores and online. (Link in bio)

Securus Technologies Continues Striving For Better Improved Safety With JPay Acquisition

In a continued attempt made by Securus Technologies, for improved public safety, this firm signed a Stock Purchase Agreement that ensured the acquisition of JPay Inc. This buy out has resulted in JPay to function as a wholly owned subsidiary of Securus Technologies, which can be now considered as the parent company. This merger has not in any way disrupted the operations of JPay. In fact, it has provided this payment and communication platform with added benefits of being associated with the new parent company.

 

 

In the recent past, Securus Technologies has also been responsible for creating Wireless Containment Units that ban calls made from inmates using contraband devices. These wireless units also ban calls from unknown numbers to be received by phones while within prison walls. Eight corrections units within the country have embraced this new technology with other jails soon to follow their lead.

 

 

According to a recent article posted on PR Newswire, this acquisition has ensured that Securus Technologies gets a lead in sectors such as corrections, payments and public safety. The primary purpose of this buy out, was to combine the two forces to create a better jail system that runs on modern equipment, the latest security and with high tech hardware as well as cutting edge software programs to ensure that the greater good of people’s safety is always put forward.

 

 

In another article posted on PR Newswire, it was revealed that Securus Technologies had recently been given an accolade of the highest standard. This accreditation was provided by the Better Business Bureau as Securus Technologies had maintained a clean track record of honest and transparent operations as well as straightforward advertisements. This accolade was also granted because this firm had established an improved call center to deal with customer grievances in the first call itself with an overall customer satisfaction score of 4.3 on a scale of 5.
