    For years luxury brands have mesmerized us with highly desirable products and services. They inspire us to dream bigger and leave us desiring more. You can learn so much about attracting ideal clients from these dream building brands. I had a client (let’s call the brand was called “Arnanda”) this client had on their list On the outside, it seemed that this client was a success but this client was struggling financially to reach more high-end clients and make a profit. On the other hand, another one of my clients from Italy, who had worked as a consultant for Salvatore...

    The troubles continue for cereal giant Kellogg’s as it announced layoffs of more than 400 Texans working in company distribution centers this summer. In this latest round of layoffs, 421 employees will lose their jobs in two Texas distribution centers–201 in Fort Worth and 220 in Houston. Part of a larger ongoing cost-cutting measure, the cereal manufacturer told the Texas Workforce Commission it plans to cut most of the affected staff between July 29 and August 17, according to The Dallas Morning News. In February, the beleaguered Kellogg Company announced it intended to axe around 1,100 jobs from payroll nationwide,...

    Ever feel like your job in Hollywood or your large trust fund has left you out of touch with the working class in America? Well, now there’s a new way to reconnect with the hoi polloi: Buy a pair of $425 jeans that promise to show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.” Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom was previously best known for dropping Ivanka Trump’s brand back in February—unofficially out of political spite, officially because of declining sales. The company is now desperate to ruin its own brand further by selling a pair of working class-inspired pants, so that...

    Recently, much has been made of the role that artificial intelligence will play in taking our jobs. From manufacturing to driving to fighting wars, AI’s ascendancy into the workforce elicits everything from celebration to consternation. Depending on who you ask, AI will save jobs, or create jobs, or will banish humans from the job market forever. While the singularity is a long way off, the anxiety has set in. Salespeople are nervous, too. A million business-to-business salespeople are already in danger of losing their jobs to websites by 2020, according to Forrester. The basic sales jobs are already migrating to...

    MARCH 11, 2017 —After several major department stores, including Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, dropped Ivanka Trump’s products, citing poor performance, the company's revenue boomed in February, mostly from online sales. Though the first daughter divested herself from her eponymous brand in January, a wave of high profile news surrounding the label – including calls for boycotts – combined with full-throated support of the brand from the White House made the sales of Ivanka-brand items more political than ever. Abigail Klem, who took over as president of the fashion label after the election, confirmed the company’s rapid growth online since last...

    The Telegraph ^ | 02/18/2017 | Chris Graham
    There's no such thing as bad publicity, as Ivanka Trump is discovering. The president's daughter was caught up in a row this month when Nordstrom said it would stop selling the her brand of products. Although the upmarket department store said the decision was simply down to poor sales, Donald Trump accused the company of treating his daughter "so unfairly". His senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, was then "counselled" by the White House after urging the president’s supporters to buy Ivanka's line of products, which includes clothing, jewellery, handbags and other goods. The encouragement may have paid off as her perfume...

    The whole mess about Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, shoe sales, and other accessories, is not about retail sales or whether or not the daughter of President Trump has a product capable of performing in the current market.  Sure, Kellyanne Conway should not have plugged Ivanka’s products. She holds an official government position, and she’s not supposed to promote any product on the market, but she’s new at this, she now knows about the ethics questions that have arisen (the Trump administration says she has been “counseled” on the issue), and she now realizes (though I think she already knew...
  • Are Ad-Blockers Saving Internet Users, or Ruining the Internet?

    Ad-blockers may seem like an answer to an internet user’s prayers. No annoying pop-ups, no promos before videos and no concerns about accidentally clicking on a virus. But for ad-driven websites, they’re a revenue leech that needs to be pried off. This is becoming one of the internet's biggest debates. More countries are cracking down on ad-blockers—the EU’s European Commission even proposed a rule this week that would allow media companies to ban users who use ad-blockers. The debate is no longer on the fringes with tech’s biggest names, including Facebook, weighing in. “Ads support our mission of giving people...

    They stood in line at Trump Tower, sometimes up to half an hour, handing over their cash for mementos of the president-elect: mini, gold-wrapped chocolate bricks stamped “Trump.” Trump monogrammed sweaters, towels and glassware. Trump cologne. “I bought it for my two sons,” said Shanon Loggins, 47, of Lufkin, Tex., showing off a golden shopping bag embossed with the Trump crest that carried two bottles of “Success by Trump,” a fragrance for men. “They need to be successful,” she explained. Business is good for Donald J. Trump. People are flocking to his Midtown Manhattan skyscraper, dining in his restaurants and...

    In 2008 and 2012 the firearms industry saw a surge in both gun and ammo sales thanks to the presidential election, and while this cycle is no different for gun sales — in fact, this maybe a record year — ammo is a different story. Mark DeYoung, chief executive officer of Vista Outdoor, a conglomerate of shooting and outdoor brands said consumers just aren’t buying up ammunition like they had in those years. “As you’ll recall, we were out of stock,” he said during a conference call with investors last week. He thinks consumers built up a vast inventory...
  • July Gun Sales Crush Previous Record (2.2 million checks)

    08/02/2016 3:10:18 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 33 replies
    The number of gun-related background checks performed in July far exceeded those of any previous July, newly released numbers from the FBI show. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, processed nearly 2.2 million checks last month. That represents an increase of almost 600,000 checks over the previous record set last year. It is also an increase of more than a million checks over July 2011. The July record is the latest in a string of 15 record-setting months for firearm background checks. July also saw an increase over June’s numbers as the gun industry’s seasonal lull comes...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 06/27/16 | Paul Bedard
    Gun sales are on a pace to break last year's record of more than 23 million, a boon to the U.S. industry and gun stores thanks to election-year worries about gun control and recent terror attacks, according to government figures and experts. Under Obama, background checks for guns reached 141.4 million through the end of May, amounting to sales of about 52,600 a day, according to the FBI. Last year, the FBI conducted more than 23 million background checks, which are generally used to figure sales of new and used weapons. Domestically, manufacturers have reported producing about 21,000 guns a...
  • Gun sales surge among gays, lesbians after Orlando shooting

    DENVER -- Gun sales are surging in the wake of Sunday’s deadly mass shooting in Orlando, Fla. The tragedy is generating new debate over gun control reform and the right to bear arms. Gun shops typically see a spike in customers after mass shootings. But this time, many are seeing shoppers they’ve never really seen before: More gays and lesbians. George Horne, the owner of The Gun Room, Denver’s oldest firearms dealer, said Tuesday business is booming at his store. "For this time of year I’d say its three to four times what we normally have," he said. Background checks...

    U.S. retail sales unexpectedly fell in March as households cut back on purchases of automobiles, further evidence that economic growth stumbled in the first quarter.The Commerce Department said on Wednesday that retail sales declined 0.3 percent last month after being unchanged in February. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast retail sales edging up 0.1 percent last month. Retail sales excluding automobiles, gasoline, building materials and food services ticked up 0.1 percent last month after an upwardly revised 0.1 percent gain in February. These so-called core retail sales correspond most closely with the consumer spending component of gross domestic product. Economists...
