When three graduates Jonathan Neman, Nicholas Jemmet, and Nathaniel Ru sat down in Georgetown to wonder what they were meant to do after graduation, they had no idea that they would control one of the off-putting startups in America. The Washington-based whole and hip farm-to-table salad chain started with its first shop in Georgetown. The company was funded by over 40 friends and family members. They have over 31 stores in the country with a vision to make them 40 by next year. They also have completed a three-round venture capital-funding activity that has raised over $95 million. Peter Elion, of Bloomberg Reserve, had an interview with the co-Chief Executive Officer and co-founder James through Sweetgreens video office in Washington, D.C.
All of them come from an entrepreneurial background. We didn’t have an appealing look like a startup. None of their investors wanted to fund us. However, they managed to prove them wrong with our immense success. Jammet’s parents ventured into the food industries founding the world-famous La Caravelle Champagnes. Nathaniel and Jonathan too, although their parents were not in the food industry, were also entrepreneurs in their respective fields. While still in college, they never wanted to create the brand. Therefore, their desire was to build their venture in many ways. They also wanted to find a healthier food in the town in their proper way.
They had the necessary discipline. While the salad foods were not the best option for a nutritious meal, they had a million ideas about how to disconnect the remaining brands in the market. They still look at their original business brand. When we were selling a dream to people to fund us, the plan of activities helped them.
The company pitch has never changed. They keep adding to it. However much they sell a lettuce leaf, they sell a set of values that mean business. They portray a high degree of professionalism in the way they hire people, in the food served, in the forms they run, and the way stores are built. The people had great opportunities from their startup. They kept hitting each other with solid ideas for brainstorming. When we look at our previous business plan, our supporters offered a lending hand because they believed in its workability. That is all about the life of an entrepreneur. For this reason, a better belief in passion and success is the best thing that can happen to us.
Sweetgreen is a U.S.-based chain of casual restaurants. They serve seasonal, healthy, and simple food. The company was founded by three principals Jonatham Neman, Nicholas Jammet, and Nathaniel Ru after the graduation ceremony. They studied business administration at the University of Georgetown.

As the world revolves, fashion and technology have evolved. A part of this natural progression has been the fusion of fashion trends with technological advances. Christopher Burch, veteran fashion retailer and owner of Burch Creative Capital, discusses what kind of changes have already occurred and what trends can be expected in the future; with the fashion industry merging with the technical industry.
Burch addresses the current surge of interest in wearable technology, by taking a look back at past trends. Beginning in the 1970s, he says that hip-hop culture with its big, booming beat boxes changed the way people played music. First users were content with just hearing music from local radio stations while traveling. Then starting in the 80s and 90s, there was a transition to recording personalized versions of music and creating storylines.
Before long people started dressing like breakdancers and hip-hop artists. And suddenly, it was no longer a cultural phenomenon, because quickly young people from all walks of life, thought it was fashionable to wear loose, baggy clothes and colorful emblems as everyday outfits.
Consequently, Burch says there was a further intertwining of fashion and technology, as designers sought creative expression through “Avante Garde” designs. One important influence during this time period was young Dutch designer, Anouk Wipprecht. Wipprecht saw the connection between fashion and technology as something to be imparted into fun, funky clothing. She went on to create a drinking making dress and a self-painting dress, as a result.
Christopher Burch is the ex-husband of successful fashion icon, Tory Burch. In 2013, he was added to Forbes’ annual list of billionaires. Burch helped launch his ex-wife’s brand in 2004. But, he is a man of many different hats; a serial entrepreneur with several companies, including a preppy retail outlet, the wireless charging solution, Powermat, an office store, which sells outlandish and unusual office supplies, and he owns several properties with homes in the Hamptons, Indonesia, and Nantucket Island.
At first glance, Burch looks like a “gentle” man of leisure. He has maintained an active interest in the fashion world since the inception of his ex-wife’s flagship store. Not only is he involved with multiple businesses as a self-made billionaire; he also has two adult daughters, who recently launched their own fashion businesses. In addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors, Christopher Burch also continues to author numerous articles, related to fashion, business and creativity.

The song Milagro was a composition by Hermanos, Luigi Giraldo, and Archie Pena. The entire production was handled by top producers in the market led by Emilio Estefan, while Norka Luque handled the singing part. Just after it was released, the song the popularity of the song spread like fire. The song is a composition and a perfect mixture of Caribbean rhythms, reggae, and Mediterranean sounds. The song motivates people who are struggling or going through stressful situations to continually remain strong and keep on working hard for a better life.
Besides her successful music career, Luque is admired for her courage even in adversity. In 2007, she had a setback when she was diagnosed with epilepsy. The Latin Singer, however, did not let this deter her from realizing her dream and becoming a successful musician. The word impossible is nonexistent in her vocabulary. She went against all odds to go through the challenge of epilepsy and came out successful. She became an inspiration to people with disabilities and shortcoming. Her message was that nothing should get in the way to stop someone from realizing their goals or being the best at what they do. More information about Norka Luque’s life and story is found on her Facebook page.

Shea butter is truly a phenomenal natural substance with substantial benefits that improve skin, and many consumers that use shea butter tout over the results that they experience through its use.
Shea butter is actually derived from the western Africa Shea Nut Tree and has been used for centuries in Africa and other countries to protect and moisturize skin. The nuts are dried and ground to a powder and are transformed through boiling. The result is a fatty substance that rises to the top and solidifies to create the fabulous butter.
The butter is not only used as a base for effortless massage therapy, but it is also included in cosmetic ingredients such as soaps, hair and scalp conditioners, topical anti-inflammatory creams, lotions, bath products, and lip balms as well as preparations for skin diseases, nasal decongestants and arthritic conditions.
Its benefits are well known in that shea butter helps the skin retain natural oils that contribute to the production of collagen and other essential skin components. It soothes, moisturizes and repairs skin tissue, and it alleviates areas of crepey skin, stretch marks, scars, bruising and burns. Shea butter is effective as well with the stimulation of hair growth and hair relaxation.
There are a number of shea butter products in the marketplace today and one company, EuGenia Shea, launched in the spring of 2015 by former Wall Street analyst Naa-Sakle Akuete has shown that shea butter in its purest form can provide all women the utmost in pampering through the use of Eugenia Shea products.
Akuete’s Ghana based EuGenia Shea business was launched through her mother along with the devotion and work of all-women cooperatives. They not only harvest the shea nuts but they train and work in the production process in an ongoing basis with the turnout of numerous brand offerings, which include fragrance gift tins such as grapefruit, lavender and other scents as well as pregnancy, dermatological and everyday type products for the skin. Customers can even subscribe to their shea butter, to replenish EuGenia Shea collections as often as they like.
Shea butter is a truly remarkable cosmeceutical, and its natural consistency offers users innumerable advantages over other chemically laden skin preparations, which are simply unable to replicate the benefits of pure shea butter.

If there is one thing that is almost as old as humanity itself. It is religion. There have always been religious beliefs that often centered around different aspects of humanity. Among the common issues that were addressed with religions were questions of life and death. Over the ages, there have been plenty of religions that sprung up. They each have some common themes. While many people believe that there is one correct religion, there are some that believe that each religion is only a small part of the key to universal understanding. This is where the Kabbalah Centre comes in.
One thing that the Kabbalah Centre does is present students with ways of finding the truth without the requirement of knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish texts before understanding the teachings. Among the sources of information that it uses is the Bible. The Kabbalah Centre believes that the Bible is a code of life or an unseen mystery that certain gurus will unravel and reveal. As a matter of fact, there have been books on the Bible that have teachings from Kabbalistic sources. This is to help people understand the purpose of the Bible and the messages that come from it.
Another interesting concept that the Kabbalah Centre presents is the idea that the five senses grant people access to only 1% of reality. The rest of the reality is something that is beyond the five senses. However, the rest of the reality is what causes the mere 1% of the reality that is processed by the five senses. Another thing that is taught by Kabbalah is that everyone has direct access to the spiritual realm which is blocked by Klippot which restricts the spiritual energies from making an entrance to the physical body. However, if one practices Jewish law, meditation, and Kabbalah teachings, then he will unlock the experience for himself.

Shogun Iemitsu was the topic of discussion on the iUniverse Podcast by its author Michael Zomber. The show was broadcast on June 12th. The author discusses what inspired him to write the book. He readily admitted to a passion for the culture of Japan. He also enjoys discovering facts with regard to the country’s history. The podcast is well worth it, especially for individuals interested in hearing a side to the famed author, that is tied to the culture which inspires him.
Zomber is fascinated by antiquated arms. During the show, he shares this passion on a global basis. The author has been making it a point to collect antique arms and armor for basically 40 years. He enjoys this aspect of his life and wishes to share the passion of collecting, in this regard, with an audience, once again, on an international basis. It is truthful to observe, he has a acquired a great deal of knowledge about the subject, and he wishes to make as much of the retained knowledge accessible to the world at large. However, the preceding revealed, the author makes it a point, as well, to tell his listening audience that guns are not the only passion which he involves himself.
So what is it that motivates Zomber in addition to weaponry such as guns?
The author enjoys the concept of the Samurai Sword. The subject, of the Samurai Sword, has basically motivated the author to share information, with the world at large, by way of writing stories and screenplays. His storytelling and plays have held the attention of theater-goers as well as book lovers, the world over. Within the historical novels of the author, light has been shed on the reason why such weapons of antiquity are special. The novels, naturally, will have a great deal of influence for readers within the future as well as history buffs. It is correct to state that Zomber’s expertise has made him well known on a global basis. He is well-regarded, around the world, as an expert in the field of history. His documentary about Bushido, Soul of the Samurai is what put the author on the map, as a world-renowned historian.
Zomber and his wife own their own film production company. Renascent Films LLC is the name of the Zombers’ film company. The author and producer, due to the nature of the matter of his subjects, thought it important, as well, to become part of charitable organizations committed to peace.
Michael Zomber and his family reside in the Philadelphia area, and fit well, with many of the experts of antiquity that reside and work in the metropolitan area.
The author has made it a point to become an expert with regard to the culture of the Samurai. The saying that is applicable is: “There is a way and then there is a warrior way.” The warrior way is known as Bushido. The warrior way is about how a person conducts him or herself throughout life. The way in which a person conducts him or herself is considered that person’s lifeblood.
The warrior way, as it pertains to Michael Zomber, is about how he applies the principle to many different areas within his life. Such areas include his interest in his avocations and his work in general–the two areas, many times, becoming one and the same; or conjoining.
So what does the famed producer and writer do on a regular day?
On any number of days, Zomber can be found, working as a film producer, on one of his independent films. He may be in the process of writing, yet, another book. Zomber has authored five books including Shogun Iemitsu, Jesus and the Samurai, Sweet Betsy, That’s Me, Park Avenue, and A Son of Kentucky. The famed author and producer may be on the set of the History Channel. At the latter venue, he serves as expert and historian for shows such as Tales of the Gun.
Regardless of role, Zomber provides his work with an intellect that is strong and a passion that is comparative to Bushido. The author has made a life studying morality, discipline and honor. He conducts the preceding studies in order to keep himself centered and in harmony with the world around him.
Persons wishing to summarize what it is exactly Zomber is best known and does with his time would be right in stating storytelling. The preceding is not far-fetched, since the famed author has acquired an undergraduate and a graduate degree in Literature from UCLA. When Zomber is playing his role as author, his telling a tale is quite apparent. The storytelling tends to spill over in his role as a filmmaker too. The filmmaking is something that Zomber and his spouse, Andrea, oversee, through their own independent production film company, again, known as Renascent Films. The main purposes of the film house include production and distribution of films of an independent nature.
The author’s partnership with the History Channel is a perfected intertwining of his avocation and his creative work. During a period of forty years, as indicated in the above text, the author has been adding to his broad collection of armory and guns. He shares his stories about his passion for guns, on shows such as Tales of the Gun. The show is created by way of Zomber’s acquired knowledge and appreciation of the craftsmanship as well as the culture tied to the weaponry.
The philanthropy area that the author embraces is motivational. The Zombers, Andrea and Michael, are very obvious and vocal supporters of various charitable organizations, on an international level as well as a local level. The charitable organizations which the Zombers participate assist in improving the lives of other people. Such achievements are made by the de-escalation of conflicts and war; and in the provision of increased access to resources which provide much in the way of healthier lives and positive educational outcomes.
Zomber has made it a point to explain that his philanthropic efforts are based on values such as peace, compassionate behaviors and charity. They are also advocates of resolving issues in a precise and peaceful manner. The beliefs of the Zombers have been passed on to a new generation of Zombers, meaning their children, Christopher, and Gabriella.
The author/producer, it is right to say, possesses a great deal of passion for the work he performs. The author, it has been stated, has a deep understanding and sharp intellectual capacity. Zomber’s expertise is wide in scope, which makes the author sought after in way of guest appearances on television shows and radio shows, wherein various topics of interest are discussed.
It is only one’s guess what the famed author will be involving himself with next. The preceding statement is made due to the various projects and passions which the author remains active.
Additional Notes about Michael Zomber:
As stated above, the famed author and producer, Michael Zomber, has been in the practice of collecting armory and arms of antiquity for a forty year period. In summary, he has made it a point to share his expertise with the nation as a guest history buff on the History Channel’s: Tales of the Gun Series. The series includes: Guns of the Famous, Guns of the Orient, Dueling Pistols, Shotguns, Automatic Pistols, and Million Dollar Guns.
As indicated, Zomber is also a global expert on the Samurai Sword of Japan.
His writing credits include more than a dozen screenplays and a good number of novels pertinent to history. Some of his works include: Sweet Betsy That’s Me: A Child of the Civil War, Shogun Iemitsu, and Jesus and the Samurai. All of Michael Zomber’s books are currently in circulation. The producer’s, critically-acclaimed documentary film: Soul of the Samurai was a production, created in partnership with the author’s wife Andrea, and produced at the couple’s film company, known as Renascent Films LLC.
