The majority of women recognize Fabletics as being a retailer specializing in athleisure wear clothing that is visually attractive as well as comfortable. Surely they also know that Kate Hudson is the spokeswoman for the company, but few understand the tireless efforts of her and co-founder, Adam Goldenberg, when it comes to the business and marketing aspects of the establishment.

Though Fabletics has nine stores across the United States, they are in the process of establishing over a dozen more. Down the line, the company hopes to take a more international approach to the manner they conduct their business, though they have already achieved that with their online capabilities. Their business in Canada and European countries has allowed them to not only be a store that sells athletic clothing fit enough for the work office but to be a staple in the fashion industry that has second-handedly changed it for the better.

In 2015, $44 billion worth of athleisure wear products were sold. For Fabletics, ten million of their quality products were sold on, which is a statistic that allowed them to reach fifty percent in terms of brand awareness. While these numbers seem more so beneficial to the company, it actually proves more advantageous to the fashion industry and women who have waited far too long for the right to be continuously comfortable.

For a moment, reflect on ten years ago; the office was strictly for suits, pencil skirts, and blouses. Today, women are matching their trendy athletic tank tops to form-fitting leggings and athletic dresses in a way that is both professional and casual. This stimulates a more relaxed work environment, which promotes greater productivity and effective employee engagement. On a bigger scale, it improves the confidence of women who once suffered from low self-esteem as a result of their restrictive, less than flattering attire. Without Fabletics, the fashion industry would still be a fairly intolerant place that would continue to destroy women who were of average size and larger.

Conclusively, Fabletics is a game-changer in the world of fashion. The company’s ability to produce items solely for the consumer has made them both relevant and triumphant in all of their affairs. In less than five years, the company has gone international online and has become a household name. From frumpy sweatpants to attractive leggings and dresses, women of all varieties are comfortably content.

Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber recently donated a whopping $14,000 worth of work to a female Las Vegas Senior citizen. The two companies are owned by businessman and philanthropist Ken Goodrich. The companies reacted to news that the 94 year old lady, Jean Jackson, had been hospitalized by heatstroke after her air conditioner gave out on her.

Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber: Good Deed Brings Cool Relief
Jackson had been relying on two small window air conditioners during the summer to cool her home. She has lived in a one bedroom trailer in Nevada for the last 33 years. Unfortunately for her, her two air conditioners failed to cool her home during the hot summer season and she could not afford to replace them because she survives on her social security. The two air conditioners that she was using were old and worn out. She could not replace them because they are no longer in the market. This meant that she would have to purchase and install a new system.

Hospitalized for Heatstroke

Jackson was once hospitalized from heatstroke after her air conditioner stopped working. Paramedics quickly rushed her to hospital and later advised her to check into a nursing home, a move that she adamantly refused. She has reiterated that she loves her freedom despite her old age.

Older adults residing in Las Vegas have a hard time during the summer more so if they do not have air conditioning. This is because they find it harder to adjust to the extreme temperature changes compared to younger people. They are prone to chronic medical conditions. According to Jackson, dealing with the summer weather was hard for her.

Assistance from Ken Goodrich

When he became aware of her plight, Ken Goodrich decided to help Jackson out by fixing her air conditioning and plumbing for free. He said that it was paramount for the business community in the area to help out the less fortunate members of their community in any way that they can. The sunny plumber checked and fixed Jackson’s plumbing and water line. On the other hand, Goettl Air Conditioning, with assistance from Daikin-Goodman Global, created a custom air conditioner unit for Jackson’s trailer.

Goettl Air Conditioning

Goettl Air Conditioning was founded by Adam and Gust Goettl in 1939. Between 1968 and 2007, the company operated an office in Las Vegas Valley. It returned to the area in 2015 after it was purchased by Ken Goodrich. Today, it offers installation, repair and maintenance work. It handles residential air conditioning systems and heating installation.

According to a recent online article on, a business’ reputation means everything to them. It used to be that consumers had blind trust and just did business with a company because they needed something. With the advent of the Internet, consumers became picky and now do research about a company’s goods and services, says the article. They will read reviews by past and present customers and will make an informed decision whether to choose a company or not. If the company has a poor online reputation, it could be losing a lot of potential business, states the article.
The article which also appeared on explains that disgruntled customers will be more than happy to leave bad reviews. It points out that unscrupulous competitors may leave bad reviews anonymously. In order to keep a good presence online, this article recommends a couple steps.

Having a positive reputation in the very beginning is helpful, says the article. If there are a lot of positive reviews for the business, a few poor ones will not really affect things as much. Customers will be too busy looking at all the good statements. This is a case of the good outweighing the bad. It is also recommended that businesses create as many positive social media accounts as they can. This includes having their own websites with positive blogging information.

Another thing to consider is how negative information is ranked on the search engines, the article explains. People are more apt to look at first page negative comments than they are positive ones on consecutive pages. The article outlines a few ways of pushing down the negative comments. If a lot of positive ones are added, they will outrank the fewer negative ones. This will push them further down the search engine pages. Using proper SEO techniques can help companies push down negativity. When content is optimized properly, it will take a higher rank, says the article.

The article recommends that companies have a good online reputation in the very beginning. If online reputation repair is needed, then the negativity needs to be suppressed. These pointers can help a company shine in better light to prospective customers. They can also help rebuild a tarnished online presence, states the article.


When asked to list who some of the best young CEOs in Los Angeles are Adam Goldenberg is sure to come to mind. The CEO may not seem as young as he is because he had success so early in his career and has sustained that success for so long. He has hit the mark again, though, with his latest venture. Goldenberg started JustFab, his most recent startup, in 2010 and the company has seen great success every since. JustFab even raised over $50 million in funding just last year.

JustFab is what is called a VIP membership clothing and fashion company. Clients of the service pay a membership fee. This membership gives them access to special discounts and deals on fashion items through the JustFab website. These items are usually found at a steep discount to their equivalent at retail stores and in other e-commerce sites. One of the biggest assets of the company is Goldenberg’s ability to network with other companies and get their product on his website. One of his biggest partnership is with the company Fabletics. Fabletics is a daily activewear company that is founded and owned by Hollywood actress Kate Hudson.

Finding great partnerships is not Goldenberg’s only usable skill on He has a few other skills that he has developed in his almost 20 years as a CEO in LA to help make JustFab a quick success. Those attributes are the ability to use metrics correctly to abandon a product or idea before it is too late. The other attribute is his ability to hire and cultivate a great staff at

Metrics are a huge part of any successful business. Some CEOs have too big of a personality to be able to react to information about their company’s products or ideas and end them. They can’t take information for what it is and not get emotional about it. Adam Goldenberg does not have this problem. He is not afraid to take any product off of the shelves before it is too late and the company loses even more money off of it. This is even true if he brought the product in himself. This is a great asset for a CEO to have when it comes to reducing losses and maintaining a good bottom line.

Goldenberg also employs great hiring practices with his company. He is known to forego a potential employee that may have a great resume and go with his guy on someone that is more passionate. It is his belief that you can’t teach passion and hard work. The other aspects of business can easily be taught.

Imagine an investment company run entirely by women. Twenty years ago that was a dream, today it is a reality. As a child, I remember that women’s rights and equality in the workforce was something that was talked about with some frequency, but all that talking hadn’t extinguished the blazing truth. Women were struggling with financial sector equality and the very real stigma of being born a woman.

Fast forward to the present and you will see a much different landscape, one with Helane Morrison at the helm of a highly successful investment company in her role as Managing Director, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Capital Partners. Before joining with Hall, she served as head of the San Francisco office of the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1999 to 2007.

With a degree in journalism from Northwestern University, she continued her education and earned her J. D. from the UC Berkeley, School of Law. Upon passing her bar, she went on to work with esteemed judges, such as Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun and then joined with law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. It took her only five years to become partner.

Helane’s experience working with Blackmun shaped her ideology and developed her strength and character to do the right and just work the country needed heading into and out of the great depression of 2008.

Confidence in financial advisors is at an all time low. One of Helane’s priorities is to rebuild investor confidence. Who better to trust than the woman who relentlessly pursued and brought to justice those who dared to defraud senior citizens and the military and launched investigations against cocksure top tier Fortune 500 level executives known for evading prosecution, famously stating, “It is unusual to find so many employees of a single company engaged in insider trading.”

In her success, Helane Morrison never forgot that women, on the whole, weren’t experiencing the same levels of promotion in their careers and she effects change daily by fighting for financial sector equality. Working alongside Co-Chief Investment Officer and President Sarah Stein in the management of over $24 billion in assets and the finances of some of the wealthiest people in America, her role at Hall Capital is uniquely positioned for maximum impact towards the education of young women and the mantra to be tough, survive and thrive.
