CEO Lori Senecal: The Businesswoman with No Limits

comdon
March 6, 2017

The most memorable thing that Lori has ever talked about in interviews is that actions bring about opportunities. This is one of her advice to the many women she mentors. According to Lori, even if you are not so sure what course you want to study in college or what firm you want to work with after graduating, move out there, get a job and during these job opportunities will come flowing. You will get the direction of your life.

Lori Senecal is not the average woman you meet down the streets of New York. She has worked with worldwide-recognized companies like Coca-Cola and BMW. She has been in different top management positions, which she excelled and has seen her become a Global CEO today at Crispin Porter + Bogusky (CP+B), reports the Wall Street Journal. This is a position she has held for almost two years now since March 2015. She is a successful lady in marketing as she views it in terms of technology and innovation.

Before becoming the CEO at CP+B, Lori had worked in different companies including and positions such as being the President of McCann-Erickson Worldwide Flagship, being on the board of partners at MDC and working at Nestle. In all places she worked, her role as a strategist planner saw the firms/agencies grow globally, expanding their market through her innovative plans. Lori’s main lesson that she has learned throughout her career, and in all these places, she has worked, is that as an employee, one has to come up with a lucrative way of supporting the firms to believe in their core strategy. If a company encourages creativity, Lori is able to bring about unique ways of promoting creativity and increasing productivity.

Lori’s main observation throughout her career is that women tend to be shy to apply for open leadership positions. They wait until they feel comfortable about the skills required to make a move on those leadership positions. Women also prefer to be appointed instead of applying for various positions. According to Lori, one can create her top position in an agency or company by doing best what they know, and doing it in a unique way. You don’t have to necessarily change your line of expertise; all you have to do is to take your knowledge reach out to many and be profitable.

Lori Senecal’s skills as a leader come from her upbringing. Being the fourth daughter in a family of four girls, she had to be creative and business oriented. She picked these traits from her parents, and the fact that her sisters were all very smart and active people.

Opened for leasing to the general public in early 2016, the rental apartment development known as the Quincy is one of the latest luxury developments to open up in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Here is a quick laydown of the features and amenities available at the Quincy.

 

You will find the Quincy at 120 Nielson Street between Liberty and New Street. It is located within walking distance to public transportation such as NJ transit bus lines and many restaurants, shops and theaters. The NJ Transit commuter rail station can also be reached by walking or a short car or bus ride.

Fabletics And The Reverse Showroom Strategy

comdon
February 21, 2017

Back when Kate Hudson launched her athletic apparel brand Fabletics in 2013, she was, to many, yet another Hollywood actress trying to put her name on a brand. Hudson had become a fitness and wellness guru on Instagram. Millions of followers were eager to see her next cute workout outfit or exercise tip.

 

She launched Fabletics to capitalize on the “athleisure” trend. This fashion trend refers to wearing workout clothes as everyday wear. The look was starting to take off and Hudson herself was a fan. She aimed to create an online company that sold high-performance workout gear alongside cute and casual dresses and gym bags that have high-fashion style.

 

When Fabletics was finally launched four years ago, it implemented a unique shopping model. The subscription service model was just catching on and Hudson saw potential. In addition to customers being able to purchase Fabletics items on the website, they can sign up to become VIP members. When you become a VIP member, you receive a full workout outfit in the mail each month for a monthly fee of $49.95. Fabletics picks the outfit out for you based on a questionnaire that you fill out upon signing up. You can opt out at any time.

 

When Teri Hutcheon, blogger of afoodiestaysfit.com received her first workout outfit in the mail, she couldn’t believe the value of the VIP membership program. For $49.95, Teri got an entire outfit made with high-quality materials. Many competing athletic apparel companies charge that much for a single pair of leggings or a high-performance sports bra.

 

Today, Hudson’s company is worth over $250 million. The company earns more than Amazon’s athletic apparel department. To encourage more online sales, Hudson launched several brick-and-mortar Fabletics stores around the country to act as reverse showrooms.

 

The reverse showroom technique was made famous by Apple. Instead of using the stores to earn additional revenue, stores exist as a vehicle to get more customers to sign up to the VIP membership program. Customers who prefer to try on clothing in person before committing to a monthly fee can do so. About 25 percent of customers who enter a Fabletics store end up becoming VIP members before they walk out.

 

This unique concept proves that Hudson is a true entrepreneur at heart. Fabletics stores have earned the company more revenue and Hudson is planning to launch several more all over the world during the next five years.

Mark Sparks the Entrepreneur’s Entrepreneur

February 20, 2017

Mark Sparks is a well-known entrepreneur from Texas who has made a name for himself in all sorts of different ventures, which many deem not worth investing. His entrepreneurial journey began as early as after finishing high school where he invested his time and effort to several ventures some of which would falter but some blossom to become a path to his success.

Mark is deeply religious and stated that every challenge that he or any other entrepreneur for that matter happens to face is God’s way of reminding them of their responsibility and keep them in check.

He attributes his success as by the Grace of God for he has nowhere near the educational background to justify the things he has done so far, having sold millions of dollars worth of self-made products and companies.

In an effort to reach out to upcoming entrepreneurs, Mark wrote a book entitled ‘They Can’t Eat You.’ The book describes his rise to success and the failures he faced such as some of his start-up companies collapsing costing him millions of dollars.

According to Good Reads, Marc Sparks wrote the book as a means of encouraging the lowly entrepreneurs who have not really succeeded in their ventures by showing them that failure is part of the entrepreneurial process and that success does not just come in a day.

Apart from the book, Mark in conjunction with Marc USA launched a program by the name ‘Marketing Sparks’ that aims at helping upcoming entrepreneurs with the chance to work alongside marketing experts, to hasten their development process.

Entrepreneurs that pass through the program will be hoped to have gained valuable strategies and tactics that will help improve their chances of succeeding in the entrepreneurial arena.

Sparks believes that there is a collaboration and output in a business setting are always maximized when there is a systematic flow in the office. This belief led the entrepreneur to move Timber Creek Capital, LP to a site where he felt this could be easily achieved and that would be conducive for start-up incubation. Every move he makes always has the upcoming entrepreneurs’ best interest at heart.

Even as the entrepreneur strives to help the upcoming entrepreneurs, he also uses his wealth to give back to the community. He is involved in several philanthropies all around Texas. He often donates money to a program in Dallas that drives the youths to get their high school diplomas to give the youngsters a better chance in life.

Apart from money, Sparks volunteers himself at a local homeless shelter – The Samaritan Inn. He goes an extra mile by working with Habitat for Humanity, building houses for the less fortunate. He truly is a gift to Humanity.
