Adam Goldenberg is the founder and CEO of new fashion startup JustFabulous, which most people know simply as JustFab. a company created in 2010 with high quality, low prices, and an emphasis on customer feedback in mind.
Adam Goldenberg is very open about his business model, and is eager to share it with other upcoming startups and entrepreneurs. There are three main characteristics of his company that encourage growth and prosperity in its market:
1) Metrics-driven–Goldenberg and his team are quite fond of looking at numbers. They look at the company’s metrics on a daily basis–sometimes even more often than that–to determine if there are any shifts or problem areas in certain markets they’re trying to reach.
2) Customer feedback–rather than focusing his company on solely his own ideas, Goldenberg keeps his Twitter and Facebook pages readily available for customers to use to provide feedback.
3) Hiring process–Goldenberg makes it very clear that, to work for his business, an adequate (or even amazing) resume is not enough. Potential employees must be able to demonstrate not only a passion for his company on fabletics.com, but also a passion for the fashion industry as a whole, as well as everything else the candidate pursues in their lives. This ensures that JustFab hires only the most dedicated workers–workers who love their field so much that they will be self-motivated to work their hardest.
In addition to running his own startup, Goldenberg has also been the director of online fashion retailer Dermstore.com since 2009, and the founder and CEO of Intelligent Beauty, an online parent company that operates other businesses in the health and beauty market.
From 1997 until 1999, Adam Goldenberg was the founder and CEO of award-winning international gaming network Gamer’s Alliance, Inc., until it was purchased and acquired in 1999 by social media website MySpace founder Intermix Media, of which he remained the Chief Operating Officer until November 2005, just six months before the company closed in May 2006.
Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. In a hilarious twist of fate conservative activist James O’Keefe was caught red-handed trying to lie his way inside the Open Society Foundations (OSF). OSF is a progressive organization funded by George Soros. O’Keefe’s attempt was foiled when he failed to hang up the phone after leaving a hasty voice mail on OSF member Dana Geraghty’s phone while pretending to be the fictional Victor Kesh.
After dictating the voicemail O’Keefe can be heard snapping at someone else in the room about not interrupting him while he is on the phone. He then goes on to reveal his plan about infiltrating OSF. The recording also captures O’Keefe conniving to get more information about Geraghty by connecting to her through LinkedIn. He decided against that when he realized that she would have been able to see his profile as well. O’Keefe also directs disturbing language that has implied sexual innuendoes towards Ms. Geraghty as he refers to using her as a “point of entry.”

The fraudulent attempt was forwarded to OSF President Chris Stone. He commented that O’Keefe’s lack of intelligence regarding the proper use of technology and overall ignorance makes him look like a bumbling idiot. Stone was still very disturbed by it though because it indicates a lot of under-handed activity going on in the background.
OSF is a privately-funded grant-making institution founded by George Soros in 1993. Its aim is to advance initiatives in education, justice, public health, and independent media. It has spent over $11 billion towards these goals and has an endowment valued at over $1.5 billion. George Soros believes that the world’s issues need to be responded to as appropriate as they occur instead of trying to solve every problem with a standardized approach. His reasoning is that events don’t happen by themselves in a vacuum. They manifest organically similar to the way the financial markets operate. That is why he designed OSF to respond dynamically to needs around the world as needed.
George Soros is a well-respected billionaire business magnate and global philanthropist. His early encounter with the hate-mongering Nazis in his youth helped to shape his worldview that a capitalism-driven society is one of the best ways to preserve freedom for all. Through his formal education and natural business acumen Soros established a very lucrative career that has enabled him to become a self-made billionaire.
