Fabletics’ Plans to Open More Stores

Fabletics is a new fashion company that majorly deals with fashionable yoga pants. Its products are affordable since they offer discounts to their customers. The co-founder of the business, Kate Hudson, designs her apparels to make the consumer feel sexy. Different types of memberships are offered by the company to its members, and the best of all is the VIP membership. VIP shoppers buy clothes at a lower price for example; they pay only 49.95 dollars for three Fabletics that have a regular price of 100 dollars.

Products from the company’s pins are sold online. VIP members get a recommendation of the best outfits for them every month. The company sends a new set of handpicked outfits to the user on every first day of the month. The user logs into her Fabletics account at the beginning of the month to make a selection or to choose the ‘skip this month’ option. If the consumer fails to log in by the fifth of every month, 49.95 dollars, which is the minimum cost of an outfit, is credited to their account. The handpicked outfits are not shipped without approval, and the consumer can use the 49.95 dollars credited to her account in making a different purchase. Membership can be canceled by calling 1-844-322-5384. Customers can return products for exchange for free and a restocking fee of 5.95 dollars is charged by the company if the client asks for a refund.

Fabletics is currently growing at a fast rate. The company has a plan of opening about seventy-five to one hundred physical stores in the next five years or less. The brand currently owns six stores, and it has a plan of opening the seventh one this spring. The stores will enable the shoppers to try the Fabletics clothing by fitting themselves and also give the company’s staff a platform of encouraging the customers to subscribe to its online service. The advantages of the online service are the great discounts that customers enjoy when the products are sent to them once a month and charged on their credit card.

The co-CEO of JustFab (The parent company of Fabletics), Mr. Adam Goldenberg, told the Forbes magazine that the firm has been receiving complaints from users who do not understand the subscription service, but currently, the complaints have reduced to about 5 to 10 per month. He still considers the complaints as too many even though the company sells about 800,000 commodities each month. This is an indicator that the customers like the program. Forbes research through the Better Business Bureau on the effectiveness of the JustFab online distribution systems indicated that the company currently receives few problems about its service. All subsidiaries of the enterprise such as Fabletics are currently listed separately.

What to do in the Face of Mud Slinging

If you have a career, or even a job, it is likely that at some point in your professional career, you will face some level of criticism. Whether it be from your boss, colleagues, clients, or competitors, it is nearly impossible to go your whole career without some level of criticism. But it is very important to know what to do in these situations so as to protect your individual reputation as a person and as a professional in your field.

According to searchcleanup.com, the most important thing you can do when someone is attacking your reputation is to take the high-road. If you are an entrepreneur this can be particularly difficult sometimes, because your reputation is everything that you have worked so hard to build. Without the trust of your current and potential customers, you will not have a business at all. Therefore, it is easy to get defensive in the face of negativity. However, Forbes.com warns that by playing dirty back, you could cause greater damage. In a recent article posted to their website, they listed the five top ways that you can avoid such disaster.

First they start out by reiterating that it is important not to get into a mud slinging match. Of course it is easy to hit back when someone strikes you first, but try to keep in mind that by hitting back, you are not actually solving anything. Try to keep your character in tact by ignoring the enemy’s comments and remarks. Secondly, they advise that it is a good idea to reassure your clients that business will continue to go on as usual. It is natural for your customers to fear a disruption in your business in this time, so you will want to remind them of what makes you great by avoiding to become distracted with the negativity. If you start to feel overwhelmed in the process, it is important to reach out for help.

Is Laidlaw in Over it’s Head?

It seems that Laidlaw has bitten off more than it can chew. Relmada Therapeutics recently amended their complaint to the investment and brokerage firm. They include even further charges against Laidlaw in Nevada. Relmada succeeded in including both the failure of fiduciary duty as well as fees associated with damages to their list of complaints against Laidlaw. Relmada’s success in the past year should have yielded higher stock prices. Yet its stocks have declined because of Laidlaw’s consultations.

Relmada Therapeutics Files Amended Complaint Against Laidlaw and Its Principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern

Laidlaw and Co has had a losing streak for awhile, with more that 60 complaints under its belt to date. Laidlaw showed a failure to establish and implement adequate policies concerning anti-money laundering. They also had a failure to report customer complaints and monetary damages. Finally, Laidlaw created and distributed misleading, exaggerated and incomplete communications with the public. Principals James Ahern and Matthew Eitner have interesting backgrounds. James claimed he graduated from Assumption College in 2002. However, official college records don’t show him attending past the year 2000. He holds no degree, and at 36 years old, he has little experience to run a major investment and brokerage firm. Matthew Eitner doesn’t fare much better. This 38-year-old with a B.S. in criminal justice has no business working with a pharmaceutical company. Matthew has zero experience on healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology business. Why then is he managing the investments of Relmada? It’s not a surprise that there are problems between these two companies. This is a warning to anyone investing in a company using Laidlaw: expect some drawbacks if you use this firm.
