Dr. Jennifer Walden is an American plastic surgeon from Austin, Texas. After earning salutatorian honors from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, she was able to build her own private practice in New York City. Not too long after, she decided to move back home to Texas due to the birth of twins. On the way there, she realized that those in Texas want cosmetic surgery just as bad as everywhere else, leading her to continue her practice. She’s been a practicing plastic surgeon for almost a decade now, and has emerged as a reputable surgeon for clients interested in cosmetic work. Her success in a male-driven field is shown constantly because of her familiarity with her clients. According to Walden, clients feel more comfortable telling her things that they would not tell a male surgeon, which in turn gives Walden a different perspective, or angle to go about when doing surgery. Dr. Walden specializes in cosmetic surgery, which includes breast augmentation and various face/nose procedures. She also is experienced in liposuction, for those clients looking for a fast way to shed off extra fat tissue. Dr. Walden is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a title that only 180 women in American hold. Dr. Walden has established herself as the go-to surgeon for those in need of surgery in Texas, which has helped her expand her business into different avenues throughout her field. Her hard work has led her to become a household name in surgeon circles, and it looks like that won’t end anytime soon. Follow on Instagram
Daniel Taub, the former Israeli Ambassador to the UK, ended his diplomatic tenure in 2015 and said his goodbye to the queen before he left. Actually, he was born in England but being of Jewish descent, he elected to change his citizenship and migrated to Israel.
He eventually became its envoy to the UK. He used his early experiences and training in Britain to the advantage of his motherland and this resulted in the doubling of the trade between his country and the UK during his tenure.
This could probably be the greatest contribution of the former Israeli Ambassador to the enduring relationship between the two countries.
Taub was born and raised in England in a family of Orthodox Jews. As such, he did not have a problem of migrating to Israel. By virtue of his being educated and trained in the UK, his entry into the Israeli diplomatic corps must have been just a natural consequence.

He admitted that he feels privileged that he is able to go to his chosen country to raise his family. But he discounts the view of his detractors that say he is just an envoy to England’s Anglo-Jewry. He still believes though, that England’s Jewish community is important and looks at his diplomatic tenure as very critical in building the bridge between the two countries.
For instance, there was a time when he visited Bradford City during his tenure as Israeli Ambassador to Britain. George Galloway, Bradford MP, had previously declared in a speech that the constituency is an “Israel-free zone” and that no tourists, academics, good or services should be allowed from this country.
But Taub visited the city anyway proving that there are also some people there who welcome Israeli and what this country could offer.
He went there by invitation within the community amidst tight security. After the visit, Taub said that he was surprised to know that there were different attitudes about Israel contrary to what Galloway was promoting.
As a result of his visit, he developed the opinion that Galloway does not represent the real voice of Bradford. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.daniel-taub.com/ and http://israblog.nana10.co.il/blogread.asp?blog=864881
At present, Taub is now working as Yad Hanadiv foundation’s Director of Strategy and Planning in Israel. He started his diplomatic work in the UK in 2011 and relinquished his post in 2015.
He was educated in Oxford, England at its University College. He also studied at Harvard University in the Kennedy School of Government. He migrated to Israel after completing his studies in 1989.

While still students at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. finding a healthy place to have meals was a daunting task for Nathaniel Ru and most of his college friends. They thought of starting one in a tavern on M Street. After only six years, Sweetgreen, the name of the eatery they had started had grown and opened 21 other stores. Read more: Sweetgreen | Wikipedia and Nathaniel Ru | Dynamic Dialogues
After discovering that their landlord at the tavern place had another property at the corner, they called her and she finally agreed to meet with them. Although the three friends were not yet through with their college education, the landlord allowed them to look for business backers and develop the real plan. Since then, Sweetgreen has opened stores in Washington, New York, Boston, and Philadelphia.
Uniqueness at Sweetgreen
Sweetgreen relies on local farmers and purveyors for the supply of most of the ingredients. Unlike many places that just offer their products, Sweetgreen give its clients a reason to consume their products.
The founders of the company were first concerned about “why” in determining what to produce. According to Theresa Dold, the company’s head of digital marketing, most people buy a product because of how it is produced. Read more:
Each Sweetgreen store relies on the core values of the organization. A shop should serve the local community and not a given corporate giant. In every decision that is made, the interests of the company, clients, and the community must be considered. There should be consideration of the long-term effect of every decision taken.
Nathaniel Ru adds that the company tries to ‘keep its real.’ Originality must be observed when dealing with employees, clients, and suppliers. When employees give their best, the customers feel happy and tell their other friends helping in the growth of the company.
Sweetgreen and Music
In 2009, the company opened a new store near Dupont Circle area in Washington. Despite the strategic location of the company, the first two weeks passed without a customer. The company started playing music on weekends. They were giving a reason for customers to come to their store. It was a product of the “why” idea.
Who is Nathaniel Ru?
Nathaniel Ru is best known in the fast-casual dining industry. Together with longtime college friends Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman, they founded Sweetgreen, a chain that serves high-quality salads to its clients in 2007. The company has grown to over 77 stores around America and has employed over 3,500.
Ru has remained determined to decentralize the operations of the company’s restaurants. He wants to each store more self-dependent. A single headquarter should not be relied on for the dispensation of the company’s policy.
It is essential that institutions of higher learning encourage their graduates to create jobs opposed to being job seekers. According to the executive chairman of QI Group, Datuk Seri Vijay Eswaran, students should be encouraged to be risk takers so that they can delve into entrepreneurship that may lead to the creation of employment. He further added that students usually end up working for someone to gain the required experience and skills before they venture out by themselves.

Most of the time, students are limited to job seeking and are never connected into a chain or another. The dynamic world is moving ahead real fast, and jobs are evolving into adopting artificial intelligence. Robotics and other different forms of automation are taking over. The population, on the other hand, is consistently growing.
Citizens in countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan are willing to gain experience first. However, their most significant goal is to become their own employers and bosses to create jobs and lure others within the rich labor environment to work for them. Once done with their education, students may choose to work for humble start-ups or established firms within their locations.
This decision should not be settled on without a careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of both work environments. The choice of a working environment should suit their specific preferences and personalities. Read more: Vijay Eswaran – Philanthropies and Vijay Eswaran | Professional Profile – LinkedIn
Vijay further added that working under someone is never easy, and one may find fresh complains once in a while. However, gaining the basic understanding of the different stages of the business development from startup to corporate would be worthwhile. Startups call for students to be both the leader and a team member. The student will come up with an idea and see it through to the end.
When sharing his experience, Vijay noted that working within a given startup was, indeed, getting more fast-paced and ever-changing. The students need to get into a binding psychological agreement with their employers as they agree to work for business startups. They will be required to consider the essential factors that will help them achieve their goals.
Advancement of the Colored people
The organization is a national Association where all the people of color get their rights. Having been started in the United States, there has been a difficulty in getting better treatments from the natives. The people of color have been treated like second-class citizens for a long time, and this has affected their productivity towards the growth of the society.
Racism has been a common topic in the country. People have discriminated against one another without any support. The people of color have been killed in the streets with no help. The fact that they need to protect themselves has hardened them and given them a negative image in the society. The organization is dedicated to ensuring that there is a complete eradication of racism and the equal resource distribution can be ensured.
The National Gay and Lesbians Taskforce
Most organizations in the United States were formed by people who felt disturbed by the state of events. It is very rare to find the minority fighting for their own rights. With the national gays and lesbians taskforce, things are a bit different.
The organization is majorly composed of gays and lesbians who are tired of living in denial. They have come out openly to support their course and to ensure that they get the best treatments and not to be judged by the society because of the state.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey have been very helpful in the recent past. Since they donated $3.75 million to the organizations that fight for human rights, the two gentlemen have gone ahead a created a forum where people can send their donations to support the fight against human rights violations.
Being that their jobs are very demanding, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey cannot actively participate in the fight against human rights violation, but through their influence, they have done a lot to help the minority groups in Arizona.
The National Organization for women
For centuries, women have been mistreated because they are women. They have been treated as if they do not have rights at all. Their rights have been ignored and violated without any help from any quarters. The National Organization for women is dedicated to ensuring that women get their rights back.

The organization has fought hard for years, and their achievements have been seen. It is through this organization that the gender rule came into existence.
Women have been given place in the political seats as well as in corporate governance. Currently, the organization does not work in solitude. It has included several other groups in order to form a strong bond that would help the society in achieving its goals. Giving women a chance in the current age is the surest way of improving the state of the society.

Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg co-founded Fabletics as a response to a unique need in the fashion market. Retail was a 44 billion dollar business in 2016. These numbers were based on the purchases of active wear. The growth and consumption in this particular market was expected to double reaching 83 billion dollars annually. Read more: LA Entrepreneurs Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg Are Reinventing How We Think About Technology and Fashion
However, despite the huge numbers there were only a few companies dominating the industry. Monopolies are common in many different business arenas. These companies secure huge profits with very little competition. The introduction of Fabletics challenged this business paradigm.
Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg teamed up with high end personalities in order to draw attention to their new business model. Actress Kate Hudson was a primary figure in pioneering the marketing effort for the new company. The objective was to satisfy a need in providing active wear to the female consumer.
Industry research showed that women were the most overlooked consumer group in the active wear market. Females were looking for colorful and attractive workout gear at a reasonable cost. Many of the options on the market at that time came in standard sizes, were very expensive and not flattering to the woman’s physique. Don and Adam saw the need and develop a line of clothing to satisfy and unnoticed consumer base.
They began with Techstyle Fashion Group. The company quickly began to answer the call for a fresh approach to female athletic fashion. However, their efforts were not without obstacles. Don and Adam were in need of a tremendous influx of cash to pursue this business endeavor. Their online business was highly successful at that time.
Yet it still did not provide enough funding to launch into the fashion retail market. It was unlikely that two unknown businessmen were going to create a formidable brand in women’s active wear. The duo was forced to team up with notable names in order to establish themselves as a player in a very competitive industry.
Kate Hudson brought her personal touch to the vision. She was an active and athletic female who desired the product that Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg was trying to market. Hudson enthusiastically embraced her role.
She was motivated by the idea of inspiring women to stay fit and active. Money was merely an afterthought. Kate Hudson, Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler then set out on a mission to create a line of women’s active wear that would be appealing to females of all sizes and activity interest.
