When Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler met while they were doing business, they both had already been very successful at the businesses that they had from the beginning. They were both startup geniuses and knew that, if they came together, they would be able to form something that was life changing. This was the JustFab business model. They both worked very hard to ensure that it was a success. Through smart business moves, they brought JustFab to the top of the charts for online retailers on youtube.com in a very short amount of time and made it be one of the most popular options.
Adam Goldenberg started out with success. Before he was even old enough to drive, he was already starting his own company. The company was focused around video games and was something that he felt could be really entertaining for people. Adam Goldenberg made some money from it, continued to be successful, built up the value and sold it to the company that used to own Myspace. He made money off of that deal but he also made money off of the game long after it was sold because he was able to collect money from it.
The second business on vator.tv, while much different, was still a success. He wanted to make sure that the business was even more successful than the last and that he would be able to sell it for even more money. He was, essentially, flipping businesses to make the most amount of money for himself. He wanted something new, though. Goldenberg wanted something that nobody had ever done before and something that was uniquely his (and his partners’). This is where JustFab came into play and where he made the decision to start what is now one of the most successful brands on the Internet.
To this day, JustFab continues to be successful. Women like it because it gives them the convenience of shopping online and having their own personal style coach. It gives them a chance to really enjoy shopping and get the most out of the experience. This is something that will last for a long time. While there have been copycats of JustFab since its inception, none have managed to do quite as well as the original site has done.

Equities First Holdings (EFH), a leading global lender and provider of alternative shareholder financing solutions, is noticing growing traction in margin loans and stock-based loans in an economic climate where financial institutions have tightened lending criteria. Equities lending is becoming a worthy alternative for borrowers who either do not qualify for more conventional credit-based loans or need to raise capital quickly.
Recently, several banks have reduced their lending options, increased interest rates, and tightened credit qualifications, though some options still exist for borrowers. The Founder and CEO of Equities First Holdings Al Christy, Jr. finds that loans collateralized by stocks are an innovative borrowing alternative for people hunting for working capital. Stock-based loans characteristically provide certainty throughout the life of the transaction as they offer a fixed interest rate and have a higher loan-to-value ratio than margin loans.
Christy notes that stock-based loans provide a hedge during a typical three-year loan term since the borrower is reducing his or her investment risk in a downside market, though market fluctuation is inevitable. The executive also adds that most of these loans have non-recourse a feature that permits an individual to walk away from the loan at any point so the borrower can keep the initial loan earnings with no additional obligation to the lender. Borrowers of stock-based loans can anticipate a fixed rate between three and four percent in addition to loan-to-value ratios ranging from 50 to 75 percent. With a marginal credit, the individual can expect loan-to-value ratios between 10 and 15 percent. Besides, in case of a margin call, the lending firm can liquidate the borrowers’ collateral without warning.
