Adam Goldenberg’s Entrepreneurial Journey

Although there was no financial report to support the claim, DERMSTORE and SENSA were highly profitable.

As part of a strategy to expand its addressable market, Intelligent Beauty launched JustFab in 2010, an online subscription e-commerce fashion retailer on In its first two years in operation, JustFabs received funding from many companies such as Matrix Partner, Rho Ventures, and Intelligent Beauty.

The Study of Kabbalah Inspires Multitudes

In North America, there is a stunning movement away from the major religions. More people, especially younger persons, are declaring themselves spiritual but not religious or agnostics or atheists. While the Abrahamic religions are loosing ground, there is renewed interest in mystery religions and so-called fringe religions. The internet has served as a great source for followers of these other religions who can read and study tenets of these long lost religions.
One religion gaining adherents is the study of Kabbalah. An aspect of Judaism that is complex and easily misunderstood. The study of the Kabbalah was not encouraged until male adherents to Judaism reached the age of 40 and had a strong knowledge of Jewish Law.
The headquarters for this resurgence of Jewish mystery religion is in Los Angeles, but courses are available online and from a chain of Kabbalah centers that have sprung up around the world.

The latest incarnation of this mystery religion was made possible by the efforts of Philip Berg and his wife, Karen.

The Kabbalah has attracted numerous celebrities as adherents. Madonna has been involved in the study since 2004. Mick Jagger, Alex Rodriguez, Roseanne Barr, Britney Spears, Lucy Liu, Rosie O’Donnell, Naomi Campbell, Paris Hilton, Misha Barton, Ariana Grande and Lindsay Lohan have all been involved in the study of the Kabbalah.
In the computer age where everyone is on social media, new ideas can inspire and fill our minds. YouTube proliferates, and there is information about everything if you just look for it. Brilliant minds by communicating can share knowledge and by their recorded lectures preserve their wisdom for the future. There is an enormous amount of information on YouTube and the internet to be appreciated by those who question many things in life and have a thirst for wisdom. To be able to hear Richard Feynman, Alan Watts, Christopher Hitchens, and Carl Sagan via YouTube is an immense treasure.
The Kabbalah is complex but is definitely worthy of study. Its precepts embody the best of all religions.

Kate Hudson wanted her fashions to encourage women to be active and live life to the fullest.

Kate’s fashion sense and unique prints made her clothing line an instant hit.

Dick and Betsy Devos Struggle to Find Candidate

Dick DeVos has previously expressed his interest in the campaign of Florida Senator Marco Rubio. The reason he gave for his support of the Florida Senator was that he believed that the senator represented true conservative values and had fresh ideas for the party. Dick Devos’ support of Marco Rubio caused the senator’s campaign to gain traction, but ultimately the senators could not continue to make a bid for president if he could not win in his own state of Florida. Marco Rubio lost the republican presidential primary in Florida to Donald Trump, who won 46% of the vote. Although it seems that half of the state was supporting Donald Trump and the other half did not, the other republican nominees divided the votes in Florida, leaving Rubio with only 26% of the vote. After this failure, Rubio suspended his campaign, leaving Dick Devos without a major candidate to support.
Since Rubio and other Republican Nominees have left the GOP race, the Devos family has had difficulty choosing a campaign to support. The remaining candidates for the republican nomination are Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. While Ted Cruz is expected to take the majority of the evangelical right wing vote, Donald Trump is expected to win the nomination. Because these candidates do not seem to represent the values that Dick Devos finds important, he has had trouble finding a candidate to back. Though he has expressed his unwavering support of the Republican party, Dick Devos has stated that he will not be funding any major republican presidential campaigns at this time.
The Devos family has stated that they will continue to support the Republican Party on a large scale, regardless of their disdain for the current nominees. Dick Devos has expressed his opinion that regardless of the particular candidate that represents the party’s presidential nomination, he believes that the conservative party holds great ideas that will drastically improve the country. As a man who has a history of activity in the political arena, Dick Devos has seen his share of politicians come and go. He has remained dedicated to the conservative cause for many decades. Both Dick Devos and his wife Betsy have recently stated that they will support the republican nominee for president by attending events and raising awareness even if they are not financially involved in the campaign. They believe that both of the remaining candidates will make better presidents than the projected Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
