Porfirio Sanchez Galindo: Master of All Trades

Lost people in this world are only able to gain mastery over one field during their lifetime, be it a language as rich as Spanish or a complicated subject like economics and programming. Only a few become experts in more than one area, but to find a man who has a firm grasp of a diverse array of subjects is a tough ask.

Meet Porfirio Sanchez Galindo, an applied mathematics graduate from the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico (ITAM) in 1998 who shortly after became the Mexican finance minister’s chief of staff in 2000. He diligently discharged his duties as the advisor to the minister on financial matters affecting the entire country as well as the manager of the staff who worked in the finance ministry for six years. Amazingly, he managed to perform these demanding tasks without prior experience. When he stepped down in 2006, he was immediately taken on board by Televisa, a media giant in the Spanish-speaking world and a cable operator of great importance in Mexico, as their chief economist. His role was later expanded to include the duties of corporate vice president and head of the staff. Later on in his career, he sought further education to expand his repertoire of skills in the form of short courses at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2011 and Carnegie Mellon University’s Institute of Software Research in 2012. Apart from all this, he has been at the forefront of a large number of Spanish language publications as a prolific writer and editor, such as National Geographic en Espanol, National Geographic Traveller, and Esq. Latin America. To top it all off, he also serves as a member of the Doctors Without Borders group.

A man of his many skills is a prized gem. Porfirio Sanchez Galindo has been a true asset to the Mexican communities as well as the Latin American countries at large. Having helped many different corporations during his career in Televisa, he is part of the most influential media company in all Spanish-speaking countries in the world. Being both a financial expert and an administration student, he has helped the group in many different ways, and its success definitely has a share of the work of Porfirio Sanchez Galindo.

Waiakea Water: Humanitarian of the Bottled Water Industry

The bottled water industry is an enigma. Water is universal to livelihood and a healthy lifestyle; however, consumers can be environmentally concerned as to how any bottled water company distributes and alters their water source. The very thing that stands for well-being (water) goes against its cause if it hinders the health of the environment. Sustainability and health: this is what a water bottle company should represent, and luckily the criterion of this have been met with the charitable and ever-expanding company of Waiakea Water.

Since its launch in 2012, the Waiakea Hawaiian volcano water company has gradually increased in popularity and revenue (with its sales increasing from 2,304 to 122,400 cases sold annually). But what makes this company unique? Aside from the 100% recycled polyethylene bottle that deemed it as the first premium bottle water to be certified by CarbonNeutral® and the alkaline and electrolyte-rich standards, the water company distinguishes itself as a prime company because of its natural assembly of the water directly from the water source. The water originates both as snowmelt and rain on the Mauau Loa volcano and goes through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock before it is gathered in the environmentally friendly packaging that Waiakea constructs.

“Drink ethically” is the motto that the company thrives on, and conceptually this is greatly shown especially because of the partnership that Waiakea has with Pump Aid. The mission of Pump Aid is to generally provide and improve quality of water for deprived populations. Through this association, for every liter sold, Waiakea donates 650 liters to disadvantaged communities in rural Africa.
The Waiakea bottled water company attributes itself with health. Rich in magnesium, potassium & calcium as well; the company ensures that the well-being of the consumer is always involved. As of now Waiakea has donated more than 500 million liters of water and currently has 2,000 stores in 30 states. For more information on the philanthropic and nature-defined Waiakea springs company, go to waiakeasprings.com to be part of this premium water journey.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Trying to Reel in Amazon

Amazon is not one of those clothing retailers that you can try to compete with if you are not skilled at what you do. In the very competitive fashion e-commerce market, Amazon is in direct competition with thousands of clothing retailers and still manages to bring in over 20 percent of all the sales in that niche. Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has been breaking out of that crowded pack and trying to reel in Amazon each year, having already sold $250 million in sales of women’s workout clothing and active-wear.

 

If you listen to when Hudson talks about the growth and popularity of her athleisure brand, you will discover the secret to her explosion in sales. While not new to the clothing industry, Hudson says reverse showrooming and several unique membership perks are the foundation to the company. One only needs to take a short drive to the Fabletics store at the mall to see these components working in real-time. Inside the store you will see women trying on all the tank tops, yoga pants, and leggings they can find. They will be taking the lifestyle quiz, or just window-shopping, without any pressure at all from the sales associates.

 

The reason that you see such amazing sales figures at Kate Hudson’s Fabletics in this competitive fashion e-commerce market comes down to what happens next at the website. Now that these shoppers have been trying on all the clothing at the mall, the items get uploaded instantly to their membership page. From there, these women can continue and then shop the enormous online inventory. Knowing exactly how each style fit in the store, the concerns about sizing are eliminated, and these women can basically shop on impulse as long as they like.

 

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics keeps throwing those membership benefits to its loyal customers. These shoppers are getting spoiled with free shipping for those online orders, discounts on all the workout apparel, and even the aid of your very own personal shopper. Your shopping assistant will look over your lifestyle quiz answers and then pick a piece of apparel to place in your cart once a month. Love the piece, you buy it, don’t like it, simply reject the offer, it really is that simple. Now you should see why Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has been able to do what so many other companies that are in direct competition with Amazon have not been able to accomplish lately.


What Success Academy Does Differently

Success Academy is a charter school that is located in New York. The school has worked hard to make sure that they are providing their students with the best environment for learning and this has enabled them to score higher on tests, have lower dropout rates and more success with the students who leave the school. Success Academy requires their students to wear uniforms while they are going through the rigid curriculum because they think that it prepares the students for things that will come in their future. They also do many things differently from a traditional school in that they give their students the freedom to learn how they need to.

 

There are many different ways that people learn how to do things. Children need to be catered to and their learning style needs to be taken into consideration no matter what grade they are in. Since Success Academy wants to see children learn as much as possible, they have different classes that are tailored for different learning styles and that is helpful to the students.

 

By making students wear uniforms while they are attending school, Success Academy has created a professional environment for the students to learn in. They will expect to learn when they put the uniform on and they will know what they will be doing. It also allows the students the chance to enjoy everything that they can do without having to worry about what they are going to wear. Success Academy knows that uniforms contribute to the high scores their students receive on tests.

 

Since the curriculum is not focused on test-taking and it is, instead, focused on the students being successful, Success Academy has a higher chance of making sure that their students are able to truly learn instead of just learn how to take tests. This is something that has set Success Academy apart and something that has allowed them to be even more successful. Students learn the material and are only able to be confident in their test-taking skills because they know what the subject is about since they have been experts in it.
