Born in May of 1970 and beginning her international success in 1987, Naomi Campbell is one of the last true supermodels. To date, she has quite an impressive resume including, but not limited to, Versace, YSL, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Burberry, and Chanel campaigns. She has been known as a role model for women of color, fighting discrimination and becoming the first black model to appear on the cover of Time Magazine as well as French and Russian Vogue. She was also the first British Black model to grace the cover of British Vogue, and the first black model on British Vogue since 1966. In 1989, Naomi appeared on the cover of American Vogue’s highly-regarded September issue. She appeared on the cover of American Vogue again in 1992 alongside several other well-known “supermodels” of the era for the magazine’s one-hundredth anniversary issue. Not surprisingly, Naomi also has a respectable list of acting credits to her name, which include the film “Ali G Indahouse” in 2002, the modeling competition reality TV show “The Face” in 2013, and some majorly popular TV shows in the 80’s and 90’s such as “Fresh Prince Of Bel Air” and “The Cosby Show.” She has also attempted to get her feet wet in other areas of the entertainment industry, but was met with little success. In 1994, Naomi Campbell attempted to write a novel entitled “Swan,” for which she used a ghost-writer named Caroline Upcher. Unfortunately, “Swan” was met with rather poor reviews upon it’s release. That same year, she also released an album entitled “Baby Woman,” which failed to reach US or British charts but was commercially successful only in Japan. Since then, after retiring from the catwalk, Naomi remains in demand doing what she does best as an actress and print model.

When you are part on a leadership and advisory board, chances are that you are doing something right and have been for a while. What is a leader you might ask? To me, a leader is someone that is a friend to people but also a boss. That is a delicate line to follow, but if you can do it successfully, chances are that you will have many, many happy employees. At the end of the day, you have to remember that these are people and they need to be treated as such. They have lives outside of work and sometimes you need to be an ear to listen to them, help them, and guide them.
You also need to know when to let them know that they have to work to do and it is time to focus on the work at hand and get the job done in a timely fashion. You don’t want to be too mean, as if you are too mean, you will alienate your employees and that will cause them to be stressed out and tense. You also don’t want them to walk all over you and take advantage of you if you are too nice.
John Goullet knows how to lead a group of men and women and he knows how to be there for them at the right time, but he also knows when it is time to buckle down and get the job done in a timely fashion. This is a man that had his own company, Info Technologies, and it didn’t take them long to earn a profit of $30 million, as they would provide solutions to Fortune 500 companies as an IT staffing company.
A leader is also someone that you can look to during times of trouble and times of doubt, and you know they will have the answers and they will have a solution. You can count on them to come through, no matter what is thrown their way. There is a reason they look to him for advisement, as they know he will lead them down the right path.

JustFab Inc looks like the only subscription company that has survived the hard times. The company’s luck began last year when one billion dollars were fund-raised. In the beginning quarter of 2016, JustFab made a profit in a long time. It is estimated that this year the company will make $650 million, which will be $145 million more revenues from last year’s figures.
Adam Goldenberg, the co-founder of JustFab, is positive that the business is doing well this year. Golderberg also stated that they will announce a new company name this August. This change is in tandem with the recruitment of Todd Tappin, an expert in IPOs, as a Chief financial officer.
According to many retail analysts, including Sucharita Mulpuru, it is interesting how JustFab is getting better while similar companies are collapsing. Adam Goldberg said that they are heading toward IPOs, of course, but failed to state when. As well, he firmly stated that JustFab is more sustainable than other subscription start-ups.
Not only has it acquired its competitor, ShoeDazzle, and a kids brand, FabKids, but has also added a niche for women bags and shoes. Fabletics and FL2 brands are another bonus. As you can learn from the La Times page, JustFab Inc, now occupying a 120,000-square-foot office, is just starting up and is primed to go far.

There is something about Latin music that lifts the spirit and makes the body want to dance. Singers like Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Gloria Trevi, Natalia Jiménez and Ricky Martin have crossed over into the world of rock and roll, and they have turned American dance clubs into sizzling Latino-inspired hubs. Great singers withstand the test of time, so it’s hard for young, talented singers to break into the exclusive world of popular music. But one Venezuelan singer is making a name for herself in the music business because she has what it takes to sing with the best singers in the world. That young artist is Norka Luque, the Latino dance club sensation. Norka released her first single in 2011, and it immediately was a hit in the Latino dance clubs in Miami, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. Norka’s second single, Milagro, hit #11 on the Billboard Dance Charts, and the song found its way into the mainstream dance clubs. Milagro stayed on top of the Venezuelan Music Charts for 14 straight weeks.
Norka’s story is a simple one. Her parents recognized her talent when she was five. She was cast in a Luis Miguel musical when she was eight. That was the year Norka fell in love with Shakira’s music because the musical featured Shakira’s music. Norka continued to study piano, and she took voice lesson through secondary school. Her parents sent her to France to study business administration. They knew Norka would need an education and a profession to fall back on if her dream of becoming a pop star faded. Norka Luque joined a small rock group called Bad Moon Rising while she was studying in France and that was the start of her career in dance clubs. The clubs around her school were filled when Norka and the band were booked to play.
Norka loved France, but she knew she had to move to the United States if she wanted to be discovered by a big-time record producer. After attending a Ricky Martin concert in 2006, Norka made the move to Miami, and she started singing in a club on South Beach. Emilio Estefan, the musical genius behind the Miami Sound Machine, heard Norka sing and decided to produce her first album. The first single from that album earned her a female vocalist of the year nomination in 2011. Her second single, Milagro, stayed on the Billboard dance charts for weeks. Norka is enjoying the fame she always wanted, but she hasn’t left her compassion and love for people behind. Follow Norka on Twitter @norka_music to learn more.
