Lori Senecal – Combining Advertising with Technology

Lori Senecal is Global CEO of CP+B (Crispin Porter + Bogusky}. Her appointment to this position was prompted by her incredible ability to use technology solutions to resolve business challenges. She is well known to be willing to step out of her comfort zone in order to achieve success.

Lori knew from high school on that she wanted to be in the business world. She loved gymnastics and starting coaching the sport in high school and continued while she was in college. Since gymnastics is an individual as well as a team sport she found that the coaching helped her to develop leadership skills and learn how to set goals and always be consistent. For more details visit her LinkedIn account.

When asked how she makes money, Lori said she made money when other people made money. Working in advertising definitely requires performance and perseverance to succeed. One of her strategies is to know everything about a business before they become a client. One of the toughest decisions in business is having to tell a teammate that their performance is not meeting the needs of the company.

Lori Senecal joined CP+B in 2015 and has had a strong impact in bringing the company forward. In 2016 Advertising Age (a magazine that delivers news and data on marketing) recognized CP+B as being among the “Creative Innovators of the Year” and Lori as one of only four “Agency Executives to Watch”. The company has acquired several coveted accounts. Hershey and PayPal are two of those clients.

A habit she believes makes her successful is approaching leadership with vision and follow through. This helps her focus on making ideas a reality.

A typical day for her starts with a workout, internal meetings with the leadership team and external meetings with clients to any pressing issues they may have so she keeps communication open always. Lori’s recent purchase of a Fit bit has really helped her to remember to get up and move around during her business day and get those steps in!

He became a partner at this firm and practiced in the areas of corporate tax and business laws. After 13 years in law he left to join Nabors Industries.

Petrello’s primary goal right now is to fund cures for cerebral palsy and other brain disorders.

EOS Lip Balm is Leading in the Industry Because Entrepreneur Mehra Focuses on Flavors and a Fun Expereince

EOS Lip Balm, and its introduction to the public has been very quiet, but recently it has overtaken the all-time leader in the lip balm industry, Chapstick and Blistex. EOS or the Evolution of Smooth has come on the scene with over 14 flavors in a curious round ball applicator. This was a tremendous change to the cylindrical tubes of Chapstick that only offered the original, cherry, and mint.

EvolutionofSmooth.com launched seven years ago, and it slowly grew in the market debuting in Walgreens’, Walmart stores and Target. As the fledgling company slowly gained popularity, celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian, and Miley Cyrus picked up the trend in Hollywood and millions began to take notice of the natural, organic lip balm in the ball-shaped containers. Organic products are in high demand, and EOS is now second to Burt’s Bees, which is also natural.

The future of EOS is bright. Marketers’ in the company project that sales will be near $2 billion by 2020 and today, the upstart company has become a leader in the lip balm industry.

The company today is valued at $250 million, and EOS outsold both Chapstick and Blistex. The colorful and tasty organic balm is fun and tantalizing to wear. As the user refreshes their lips, flavors like honeydew and grapefruit add a twist and a kiss of flavor, which Chapstick couldn’t compete with.

The little balls of EOS lip balm have become popular in the unisex and millennial generations. Mehra, the owner and founder, did not want EOS to be a fad or a gimmick, so the shape of the container changed several times before the “little round white balls” were decided on. Besides being organic, the variety of flavors is the next best-selling feature. Mehra specifically said that he wanted to be a desirable experience each time the user put it on.

Adam Goldenberg the Co-founder of JustFab and Fabletics

Adam Goldenberg is probably one of the most famous entrepreneurs among online shoppers. Adam Goldenberg is the co-founder of JustFab, currently known as Techstyle, which is an umbrella of e-commerce fashion retail stores. He founded the company back in the year 2006, with his business partner Don Ressler. He had met Don Ressler when he was working at Intermix.

Goldenberg first joined Intermix in the year 1999. Then, he had left high school to work as the company’s vice president of strategic planning. This was following the sale of his company, Gamers Alliance which he founded at just the age of 15, to Intermix. In the year 2001, he was promoted to work as the company’s Chief Operating Officer and at that point he became the youngest COO of a publicly-traded company.

Working at Intermix was life-changing for him. It was a platform for him to meet his perfect business partner Don Ressler. They met when Ressler sold his FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix. In him, Goldenberg saw someone who had the same vision as him and so the two hit it off and they have never looked back. They stayed friends until the year 2005 when Intermix was sold. At that point, the idea of starting a company together, struck.

Itelligent Beauty was born that year. The company worked as an incubator for e-commerce businesses on businessoffashion.com. From there, the two decided that they would be working together. From founding health companies to dealing in beauty products. Through Intelligent Beauty, they got funds to start JustFab.

JustFab was one of a kind, depending on the internet to thrive in the sale of fashion wear according to Vator.tv. The company dealt with almost everything that women like. Bags, shoes, clothes and accessories-you name it. All you needed to do was subscribe to be charged $39.95, every month. From there, you get any item you wanted for that fee. Also, you could shop more if you wanted. The company hit the market with a big bang and soon enough every investor wanted a part of it.

A few years on, Goldenberg and his business partner decided to establish another company of the same nature. However, this time, they would solely deal with the sale of active wear and this time round, they would have a celebrity figure representing their brand. That is how they founded Fabletics in partnership with Kate Hudson.

Sheryl Underwood and Dherbs.com: A Cleanse That Works Fast!

 

There are so many different ways to lose weight today, it is insane and the options are endless! You can get surgery done, quick and easy. You can do overnight wraps to help you squeeze into that fancy dress for your husband’s work dinner party. You can get a trainer or sign up to have healthy meals delivered to your house. Like stated before, the options are truly endless!

But there is the difference of being in it to lose the weight and in it to be healthy. While both are good, one is way more important than the other. The cool news is with dherbs.com, it is both healthy and fast! The results you want, you will get! And you will get it quickly! You don’t believe it? Just ask Sheryl Underwood!

 

Sheryl Underwood’s Experience

In an interview with Steve Harvey on The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Sheryl Underwood shares a quick excerpt on her detox with Dherbs. Through working out with her trainer, eating healthier, meditating and praying, and taking her Dherb’s detox supplements, she lost five pounds in just a few days. But the great thing is, Sheryl went about this detox the healthy way. Instead of just using the supplements and continuing to consume unhealthy food, she combined all aspects and took the supplements with her changed lifestyle. And her results? Phenomenal, and in just a few days! Sheryl Underwood is a well known comedian, actress, and television host for the CBS show The Talk.

 

A Bit Deeper Into The Dherbs.com Detox Cleanse

While there are many different detoxes available, Let’s spend a little time looking into the 20 Day Cleanse by Dherbs.com on Amazon. The point of the 20 day full body cleanse is to clean out all your organs and the crappy stuff in your system. Included in this detox are seven different formulas, and six of those are in tablet form and the final seventh is in activated charcoal that you simply add to water. Each individual formula concentrates on an organ/system to cleanse.

  1. Formula 1: Blood and Lymphatic
  2. Formula 2: Cardiovascular
  3. Formula 3: Gallbladder and Spleen, Liver
  4. Formula 4: Respiratory and Lungs
  5. Formula 5: Kidney, Bladder and Adrenals
  6. Formula 6: Colon and Digestive
  7. Formula 7: Taken before you sleep at night to get rid of leftover toxins and waste.

So for twenty days, you take doses of these supplements in sets of five every two to three hours. Your diet, while being on this detox, should also be completely raw vegan! Which means no animal products whatsoever, and only raw veggies, fruits, juice, plant oils, legumes, and raw nuts. No added dairy or processed sugars of any kind. Why raw? Because when you cook foods, they lose their nutrients. With raw, you are keeping it completely natural.  Learn more by reading the full review from TrustPilot, or their many user reviews on the Yelp page for Dherbs.com.
