Demand for environmentally friendly products is on the rise. Increasingly companies are responding to the demand including hair care companies. Recently, Dan Bethelmy-Rada Matrix/Biolage’s Global Brand President talked about his company’s line of all natural products for hair called R.A.W. R.A.W. was developed under guidelines established by L’Oréal as part of their Sharing Beauty With All program. Rada explained that from the ingredients to production to the packaging R.A.W. represents a 100% commitment to protecting the environment.
Dan-Bethelmy Rada states that all natural components like Moroccan volcanic clay, Bolivian quinoa husk, and Bulgarian coriander have replaced parabens, silicone, and sulfates. He added that all of the R.A.W. ingredients are combined using green chemistry. Raw product packaging is 98% biodegradable.
Satisfying L’Oréal’s standards and meeting their deadline for developing the R.A.W product line proved extremely challenging. Research and development take time and cost money. Testing is especially expensive. The cost of testing figures into the price of the finished product. The trick for Rada and his team was to conduct the needed tests while keeping the selling price as low as possible. As an example of the difficulties, his team had to contend with Dan-Bethelmy Rada sited having to move back the launch of the R.A.W product line until the right all natural clay could be found.
After bringing R.A.W to market the next challenge was to bring consumers and hair care professionals around to the R.A.W way of thinking. The #LiveRaw digital campaign was launched to spread the word about sustainable living. On Instagram, the Our “@Biolage” page contains videos that discuss how to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle. A program teaching hair stylist sustainable practices like water and energy conservation has reached 700 salons.
As of this writing, the R.A.W line has been on the market in the US for several weeks. Dan-Bethelmy Rada reports that the reviews have been “…90% positive“. The positive reception the line has received reflects consumer praise not only for the concept behind the R.A.W hair care products but their quality as well. R.A.W was recently released to European markets.

You might have heard about the philanthropic efforts of Stream Energy in the news. If you read the patch.com article, however, you would see why these efforts can be easily distinguished from other charitable effortsseen within the business community. Two things distinguish the efforts of Stream Energy.
The people that run Stream Energy and the people that direct sell for them actively participate in each of the charitable programs that the company engages in. This says a whole lot more than merely cutting a check! Also, Stream Cares is the company division handling matters of charity. That’s correct; the company has a dedicated arm for philanthropic efforts. This sort of thing was unheard of years ago yet it occurs a great deal with millennials beginning startups. This dedicated branch teams with other charitable groups to assist Dallas locals (and other Texans) that find themselves needy. Their efforts are impressive.
When Hurricane Harvey tore through Texas, Stream Energy was one of the first companies that donated money to the cause; even beating the federal funds. There were 56 inches of rain in the city of Houston, and Stream Cares was there. Remember when tornadoes hit the northern region of Texas (the day after Christmas?) Stream was there. Stream Energy, through Stream Cares, raised thousands of dollars. Stream’s corporate division matched what the direct seller contractors donated. This is something Stream does to bolster the amount of assistance provided through the arm. When local veterans that were needy where taken to a nice steakhouse only to be fed burgers, ribs, and steaks with all the BBQ fixings? Stream Cares was behind this too! When the rough winds blow or veterans are in need, Stream uses the arm to provide philanthropy with a personalized twist.
Stream sells direct energy, cell phone service and other plans for families that are on the market for cost-effective options. Their associates are direct sellers that are recognized as independent contractors on their tax returns. This means that each associate can provide their own high level of entrepreneurial effort, not only in business and direct selling but in philanthropytoo.

As consumer confidence has increased over the past 12 months, homeowners plan for home improvement projects, but how does the property owner find a reputable contractor? A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau, Aloha Construction in Lake Zurich is making that decision easier for Chicago area residents.
Operated by Dave and Wally Farbaky since 2008, Aloha Construction is a general contractor, skilled in all phases of exterior improvements. Moreover, chances are, a neighbor has done business with the Farbakys, who have replaced or repaired an estimated 20,000 roofs.
Earning and maintaining an A+ rating from the BBB requires a daily commitment to satisfying customers from the entire Aloha Construction team. Rewarded for that commitment, the company received the BBB’s 2017 Torch Award for Ethics. The Torch Award is presented annually to organizations who demonstrate the highest standards of ethics in their business practices. Qualifications for the Torch Award are stringent with a company having to demonstrate ethical practices towards customers, employees, and the communities in which the company operates.
The Farbaky’s ethical leadership sets the example for their entire organization, providing a rallying point for every employee. Notwithstanding, community involvement is essential to a company’s reputation, to an owner’s civic standing; accordingly, Aloha Construction has always donated its time and effort to charitable activities, notably youth sports sponsorships, Boys and Girls Clubs of Bloomington and Camp One Step for children with cancer. In 2016, Dave Farbaky increased the company’s outreach with the formation of the Dave Farbaky Foundation funding ‘random acts of kindness’ for children. A favorite event is a toy shopping spree where children have 60 seconds to grab toys and games. Dave’s hope is that the children have fun themselves, eventually motivated to perform random acts of kindness for others.

His mother is from Mexico and his father Argentina, but Adam Milstein’s parents felt a powerful call to “come home” soon after the modern State of Israel was established in 1948. Hillel Milstein and Eva Milstein married in Israel in 1950. Adam Milstein was their first son, born in Haifa in 1952.
Like his father, Adam Milstein would serve in the Israeli military and both would serve during times of war. The elder Milstein was a sailor during Israel’s war of independence. Adam Milstein would take part in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Milstein fought in Egypt with forces commanded by Ariel Sharon, participated in the crossing of the Suez Canal and the historic surrounding of the Egyptian 3rd Army.
Also like his father, Adam entered the real estate business after his military service, but not before earning a Bachelor of Science degree at Technion. He studied business and economics.
The year 1974 was a significant one for Adam because that was when he married Gila Elgrably. The couple moved to the United States in 1981. There Adam furthered his education by earning an MBA from the University of Southern California. Adam Milstein parlayed his top-flight education and powerful work ethic to achieve considerable success in the field of real estate.

Nick Vertucci was born in a middle-class family who catered for all his needs. Unfortunately, when he was ten years old, he lost his father and therefore his mother took up all the responsibilities so as to provide for Nick and his family. At the age of eighteen, Nick had already begun living on his own even though he was not well off. Some years later, Nick embarked on sales of computer parts and got married and had three daughters.
In 2000, Vertucci lost his entire finances and was left with only his home and for almost 18 months, he did not have enough income thus forcing him to borrow. During these tough times was when one of his friends asked him to attend a real estate training seminar as his visitor. He hesitated but later accepted the invite. At the seminar, he could not completely understand what the speaker said but he knew he had found a solution to his financial problems. When he left the training, he conducted research on real estate and learnt everything he needed to know. It took him over ten years but his determination to succeed kept him from giving up.
Ultimately, Nick Vertucci created a system that enabled him to make money in real estate. After becoming successful, Nick Vertucci pledged to aid others in making money through real estate and provide them with a solution to their financial problems. He discovered that people have the will to succeed but no knowledge of how to do it which led him to start up his real estate academy.
At the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy, which was started by Nick, people are provided with information on how to tackle problems related to real estate investing. This comes to reality with the implementation of the system he himself used, and help from his dedicated task force of industry leaders who assist people in overcoming their challenges and succeed. At the academy, they help people identify various deals, repair the properties and sell their completed projects. The academy also supports their customers in wholesaling contracts and flipping them. They also leverage their IRA and 401k to finance investments and also protect assets.
Nick Vertucci’s Academy helps people realize their dreams of unending financial freedom and creation of wealth. They offer support from initial stages to the end. His students are funded from the millions of dollars raised by Nick’s community of investors and private lenders.
