Children with incarcerated parents rarely have the Christmas spirit awakened within them. However, the child depicted in their new Christmas video definitely has the Christmas spirit awakened within him. What awakens this spirit is the fact that the young boy is able to speak face to face with his incarcerated dad. He is using Securus Technologies’ video chat service. The dad is able to express Christmas wishes to his son, and he is able to explain to his son how happy he is to witness this process. The son is also able to tell his dad how much he loves all the gifts and how they work.
Securus Technologies is helping families like this every single day. Their new video chat technology is able to be brought into all jails and in all homes. Securus Technologies does not even charge jails to use this new technology. This is because they want to connect those incarcerated with their family and friends. Securus Technologies is also on the move to improve the video chat service even more. They want to help inmates get more time with their family and friends. A big thing they are experimenting with now is being able to leave video messages, either from the inmate to the family member or vice-versa.
Securus Technologies is not only helping inmates through the use of communication. They have other areas of services that exist to help inmates, too. Their self-service technology is a prime example. This service allows inmates to keep track of their own money in a digital fashion. Prisons using this service will be given several different monitors. The monitors are very easy to use, and they rarely ever give prisons a technological problem. If this occurs, Securus Technologies offers 24-hour support for these types of issues.
Inmates can check their commissary balance at any time. This digital feature will display how much money is in their account, and it will also display the amount of money that has been paid to any fee associated with their commissary account. Prisons utilizing this system have seen a total evaporation of inmates claiming that prison employees stole their money. With this system, inmates will know exactly where every penny has gone. This service is also up to date at all times. This means, if an inmate makes a purchase in jail, the commissary account will reflect this automatically. This will help inmates budget their money in an easier fashion.
Leading The Pack
Online retail is one of the fastest growing sectors of the free market. As the internet continues to invade new areas of our lives we will eventually see shopping online no different than going to the store. At the center of the online retail movement is Don Ressler. Since the early 2000s his online startups has managed to generate billions of dollars through his venture capitalism pursuits. These pursuits have included everything from fashion retailer JustFab to startups focused around the social network Myspace. Decades from now history books will give Ressler the same regard current historians give to the likes of Andrew Carnegie John Rockefeller.
Although JustFab wasn’t Don Ressler’f first project it is undeniable that he experienced his most success with the website. Collaborating with fellow web entrepreneur Adam Goldenberg and model Kimora Lee Simmons Ressler wanted to offer online shoppers a personalized experience. For a subscription fee of $39.95 a month JustFab offers customers clothing tailored to their specific body. This business model allowed JustFab to gain a loyal customer base of millions of fans. The addition of Simmons to the team was more than a publicity stunt. She is available in JustFab offices 5 days out of the week.

JustFab raises $85M at what sources say is a $1B valuation
Expanding The Business Model
The success of JustFab proved there was a market for online fashion retail, but Ressler wanted to go even further. He wanted to see if the approach would work for athletic aparell as well. To reach out to a more active demographic he enlisted Kate Hudson for a new website named Fabletics.com. At Fabletics customers can bu athletic wear using a similar model to JustFab. Fabletics has become so successful there are now physical locations where customers can buy the personalized attire the website sells. In the future Ressler plans to open up at least 100 brick and mortar stores.
A Pioneer Strikes Gold
Don Ressler entered online retail in its infancy, built it from the ground up, and now enjoys a view from atop the billion dollar industry. The simple act of creating a successful web startup in the early 2000s before websites like Youtube and Facebook is a marvel, but the billions of revenue these companies made is even more jarring. There are few who manage to reach Don Ressler’s position and even fewer who stay there for as long as he has.

In an article written by Fast Company, they discuss how Evolution of Smooth (EOS), the popular lip balm company that is well known for their natural organic products and the pastel colored orb balm containers; have climbed their way to the top of the market within 7 years of the launch of their products. EOS has outdone their competitors like Chapstick and Blistex. EOS is currently the second best selling lip balm, after Burt’s Bees. See, https://www.fastcompany.com/3063333/startup-report/the-untold-story-of-how-lip-balm-upstart-eos-outdid-chapstick.
Sanjiv Mehra, EOS lip balm cofounder & managing partner, said that since they started up small, they put all their focus on creating and distributing the products. When creating the design they wanted to rethink lip balm entirely and brought in molding artists that sculpted different shapes until they were satisfied with the orb design. They wanted the design to be fun and not boring or dull, because many women use balms in their daily beauty routines. They approached the design from a different perspective then most lip balm companies and gave the design a way to engage with all five of our senses.
Even though EOS was producing high quality products, they had a hard time getting retailers to sell their product. Many buyers were unsure of how to take the new product and assumned that loyal customers would not stray from there favorite brand of lip balm. That was until a female buyer, tried and loved the product. She put it on Walgreens shelves and soon after Walmart and Target picked up the new product.
EOS is constantly releasing new flavors and designs that customers won’t get bored with. Mehra feels that EOS has had great sales this year and that the company is promised sales for years to come.
