The supernatural is coming to the Jericho Network in “Beyond the Darkness“, a new program announced by Norman Pattiz in December of 2016. The Jericho Network, headed by WWE star Chris Jericho is one of the many that are part of PodcastOne, the largest advertiser-supported podcast network in America. Hosting “Beyond the Darkness” are Dave Schader and Tim Dennis, who are already known for their otherworldly broadcasting and are expected to bring a new plethora of fans to the network. Chris is proud to welcome this paranormal addition to his network and evolve it beyond its simple start as a wrestling network.
Norman Pattiz launched PodcastOne and PodcastOne Sales in June of 2016. Pattiz began his digital career after leaving his radio network Westwood One, America’s largest radio network in the Broadcast Industry. He met Kit Gray, a representative of several podcasts, who helped Pattiz recognize that podcasts were essentially a digitized Westwood One. Now Pattiz’ days are filled with his small PodcastOne business that has made a huge name for itself in the industry already. He says that he loves the democratic nature of podcasting and how a program’s success depends completely on the consumer. Norman is not new to this form of business but adores learning the ins and outs of a new digital platform where information flows so uninhibited that anyone and everyone can become an expert. It goes against his long-held belief that knowing the craft is the secret to success, but instead emphasizes the importance of content and the interest of the consumer.
Pattiz formed the broadcasting network Westwood One in the seventies and served as Executive Chairman following its rise to fame. It included news stations, sports radio, traffic radio, the Mutual Broadcasting System, and several other famed programs. He was appointed in 2000 and, once again, in 2002 to be on the Broadcasting Board of Governors of the United States of America, which serves over US nonmilitary broadcasting services. In 2009, Pattiz was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and received the Giants of Broadcasting Award from the Library of American Broadcasting, he has received many other prestigious awards and honors throughout his longstanding career in the industry.
Fabletics is an online clothing fashion retailer that sells Athleisure wear. It was first started in 2013 by actress Kate Hudson and some two winning businessmen named Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler. These three business leaders had the idea to bring high quality fashion to the masses at an affordable price. Their business is now a big online hit and it is on its way to becoming a highly-rated fashion business.
Fabletics sells athleisure wear as its central product. This style of fashion wear is designed exclusively for females. Athleisure wear is stylish enough to be worn for casual outings and it can also be used for sporting or more active related events. Kate Hudson and her co-founders wanted to create a fashion line of clothing that would allow women to have this kind of flexibility. They have succeeded.
As of 2017, the company has been valued at $250 million-dollars and their future is looking bright. The reason why this company is so successful has to do with the approach that it takes toward its clients. The founders of Fabletics utilizes the process of reverse showrooming to increase their sales and to provide a detailed clothing experience for their clients.
Reverse showrooming is a process that allows women to visit a brick-and-mortar Fabletics outlet to try on clothes. As a client tries on different clothing items, a sales person at the store adds her clothing selection into an online shopping cart. In other words, if a customer wants to try on a unique athleisure wear styled dress, the sales associate will then scan the item and store it away within that particular customer’s online shopping cart and information.
The customer can then purchase the item or leave it in her cart and buy it at a later date. The sales associate will then take her clothing selection and start to bring items into the store that matches her clothing style, colors and design. This way a customer can have the type of clothing experience that she enjoys.
Reverse showrooming provides Fabletics a practical way to stay competitive as an online fashion business. While this company has brick-and-mortar locations; it does classify itself as an online business. Since it does, this organization must compete with big internet giants such as Amazon.
The problem with Amazon in terms of the fashion business; is that it dominates at least 20% of all internet related fashion sales. Amazon is a powerhouse when it comes to product price reduction. They are simply beating out other businesses because they can push huge volumes of products at low prices.
Enterprises such as Fabletics have a hard time competing with this company because they cannot undercut their prices as low as Amazon. They simply could not survive if they did. Fabletics is no exception to this reality. However, they also have managed to find a way to sell their product at a reduce cost without going broke. Fabletics have grown and survived over the past three years because of their outstanding customer service and their superior product.

In an article in Fast Company, EOS’ founders discussed the origin of their company and how they were able to displace larger and deeper pocketed competitors who were already entrenched in the lip balm market.
The story of EOS is really one of a company that took a grass roots approach to developing their business and reimagined the lip balm market at its very base level. EOS lip balm saw that their competition was not actively improving their product and were relying on economies of scale, existing distribution channels, and price structure to profit in the market.
EOS redesigned the lip balm market by creating products that were of higher quality than their competition, had a more modern take on lip balm, and was delivered in unique applicator orbs that were surrounded in bright colors.
When designing this product, EOS focused on the tastes and preferences of female buyers of lip balm, who constituted the largest subset of the lip balm market. High quality oils were used to found the base of EOS lip balm, such as coconut and jojoba oil, and only organic an all-natural ingredients were used in the product. EOS was even careful to have machinery custom designed to make their lip balm so that their competitors could not copy the products easily. It is only now, almost a decade after EOS was launched, that the lip balms produced by their competitors are emulating the products related by EOS.
EOS is not resting on their laurels and I, instead, launching new products into the personal care industry that are being perceived as being an opportunity for the company take advantage of similarly complacent competition. Regardless of the success that EOS is able to experience, their success of EOS in the lip balm market is a story of how effective and more nimble a small competitor can be, even when entrenched against larger and more powerful competition. EOS products are available on target and Costo nationwide.

Brazilian law has not always been very business-friendly, and in the view of many people, this lack of encouragement has been detrimental to the country’s development. However, things are slowly changing, and the government has introduced a new taxation system for very small businesses, also known as micro-businesses click here.
A micro-business is a one-person or two-person business. This definition includes freelancers, although lawyers are other service professionals are excluded from the definition in Brazil. Registering as a has a number of tax benefits, but is only possible if the business’s gross profits do not exceed 60,000 reais per year.
Individuals and partners who register as a micro-business pay a monthly pension contribution. Although they must file a federal tax return, they need only pay income tax if their net profit exceeds a certain percentage threshold over gross profits, which is 32% for most services, but lower for other businesses. Taxes are only owed on profits above that threshold, and personal deductions also apply to the taxable income.
These new small business registration schemes allow entrepreneurs to start small and build their business. As their profits grow, they may opt to incorporate their business or simply move up to other forms of small business organization.
