Josh Verne and Knowledgeformen

Josh Verne has over twenty years of experience in management and building companies from scratch. His vision and acumen reflect a management style that gets things done through others because he has done this, so it is evident that his management style gets results.

 

Verne is known throughout business circles as the CEO of Flocku.com, a college based informational forum that caters to students and millennials.

 

In his latest venture, knowledgeformen.com, Verne sets forth the principles that have helped him to become successful in a managerial capacity. A manager who forces his employees to respect him or her is missing the boat, as leadership is earned through exhibiting results, which in turn, creates respect.

 

Another attribute that is vital for management, according to Josh Verne is to be a good listener. Employees have good ideas, and it is a good practice for a manager to listen much, and speak less.

 

Learning how to lead a balanced life is very important for men, and especially men who are in leadership positions. Just chasing the money or positions in life can lead to a very unbalanced situation in other areas. By the same token, a man’s family life and what is involved there can be perfect, but if the man is not earning enough in the way of income, his family will suffer.

 

It is good for a man to be realistic regarding his situation in all areas and decide what he needs to work on to bring out the best in all sectors. Time allocation is one of the keys to this dilemma which is sometimes difficult to measure, but putting things down on paper is a great help in this area.

 

One huge factor for men and their relation to everything around them is to determine what they are passionate about, and then find the keys to pursuing that passion. Verne states that there are very few successful people who lack passion for what they do. If a man does not have a passionate goal that “puts fire in his belly” he will not get too far in any endeavor.

 

Passion and purpose are what drives a successful man, and that is contagious to those around him, states Verne.

Bruce Levenson Involved In Lawsuit Against Insurance Company

Bruce Levenson, part of the former Hawks ownership group, has filed a lawsuit against New Hampshire Insurance Company for breach of contract. Levenson put the Atlanta Hawks went on the market last January and the team was purchased by entrepreneur Antony Ressler who paid roughly $850 million. Along with his former ownership of the Hawks, Levenson is the co-founder and partner at United Communications Group.

Levenson also served on the Board of Directors of the Newsletter and Electronic Publishers Association and has been the President of the “I Have A Dream Foundation” of Washington as well as much involvement with numerous other philanthropic groups.

Levenson is now involved in the lawsuit that was filed in Superior Court of Fulton County in September for breach of contract and insurance bad faith. Levenson claims his former company was insured under a policy that included coverage for certain losses related to employment practices including wrongful termination. In April of 2015, notice was given to the insurance company for claims that should have been covered.

In a report by ESPN News, former Hawks ownership reached a buyout agreement with Ressler in June of 2015. Per court documents, the claim amount is undisclosed and the suit states the confidential limits of liability stated within the insurance policy are sufficient for the former Hawks ownership claim. The lawsuit goes on to state that the insurance company has refused to even acknowledge the claim or that the policy has been triggered. Thus making this a breach of contract between the two parties.

While the full amount has not been disclosed, the lawsuit seeks an additional 50% penalty of the unpaid loss and the attorneys fees. The insurance company, thus far, has not been available for comment.

Gooee Gives LED Lighting An Upgrade

It does all this while also monitoring and providing control over the performance of the lighting.

Designed for commercial and industrial use, Gooee’s smart lighting system also allows for the integration of 3rd party apps and sensors. This means the system has the potential to track not only customers through a store but products from the warehouse to the point of sales as well, giving retailers and manufacturers a leg up.

Fabulous Style with Fabletics

Fabletics is an online retailer founded by Kate Hudson that specializes in sportswear and accessories, particularly for women. Membership costs $50/month and includes a variety of benefits. Members can access catalogs online, receive exciting deals via email, and customize their own outfits. In 2015, Fabletics began to open retail stores in malls across the country to supplement its extensive selection online.

To accompany a recent gym membership, I went to a Fabletics store to view athletic clothing options. I was unfamiliar with fitness clothing, but the workers knew exactly what to do. They asked for a few measurements and the details of my training schedule. Giving me a handout with some options, they then directed me online as well where I could view even more selections. They assured me that everything would be customized to my preferences, and after browsing through their offerings in the store, I was extremely impressed with their standards. All the materials were flexible and looked very comfortable. While waiting for them to grab some leggings from the back, I talked to a nearby customer who was in a similar position, although she had much more experience. She told me that orders were prompt, efficient, and always correct. She had never encountered any drawbacks from Fabletics, and although she had some fitness clothing at home, the options at Fabletics are state of the art in terms of comfort and style. She assured me as well that I wouldn’t be disappointed. Even more importantly, they were stylish in the gym that afternoon. Fabletics contacted me by email to check whether everything was to my liking. I really appreciate this type of communication, because past retail stores have operated like large businesses with no concern for the customer. Fabletics even sent me a coupon and details on how to join their store online. Overall, I would highly recommend Fabletics to any individual who wants to be active and stylish at the same time.
