The Traveling Vineyard’s business model is similar to other direct selling companies in that men and women have the opportunity to demonstrate and then sell products at an in-home demonstration, however, there are differences that distinguish the Traveling Vineyard as as a superior option.
First, Wine Guides for the Traveling Vineyard don’t have to store inventory, they only need a tasting kit needed for in-home tasting parties. In the beginning, consultants buy a Success Kit, which contains everything for two demonstrations, including ten bottles of wine, tasting glasses, a Sommology Kit and a carrier, however, except for tasting bottles, Wine Guides do not stock inventory. Secondly, independent consultants for the Traveling Vineyard do not have to deliver wine purchases to their customers, the company handles the shipping. Unlike with other direct selling products, Traveling Vineyard Wine Guides do not have to spend time arranging to deliver merchandise, leaving them additional free time to spend with their families.
Another reason to opt for being a Wine Consultant with the Traveling Vineyard is that their heavenly wines are affordable, generally under $25 a bottle. Since demonstration participants have already had a sample, and learned about the wine and which foods to marry it with, the wines practically sell themselves. Finally, it is a cinch to entice friends and family to buy wine if they are wine drinkers or host a tasting themselves.
With an A+ BBB rating and a member of the Direct Selling Association, the Traveling Vineyard offers a genuine chance for a home-based business for ambitious men and women who either need extra cash or individuals who are looking for a new career where they will enjoy themselves while working.
Securus Technologies is among the companies that lead in the provision of technological solutions for public safety, corrections, investigation, and monitoring. Securus Technologies released several correction statements to various press releases that were made public by Global Tel Link. Securus Technologies terms the publication of the Global Tel Link’s as inaccurate and misleading. Securus Technologies’ press release aims at providing clarification and correcting information on several Global Tel Link’s claims.
The GTL stated that the decision made by the United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board on GTL’s US patent No. 7,256, 816 gives permission GTL to go ahead with a fourth validated patent to pursue injunctions and damages against Securus in awaiting violation lawsuits in Texas federal court. On the other hand, Securus corrects this claim made by GTL by stating that GTL will not be in a position to pursue claims that they have stated because of the case in Texas in currently stayed, instead they will now move ahead to the District court. In regards to the 816 patent as well as the other patent Securus is moving for the hearing, patent No. 816 has neither been accepted nor GTL is in a position to seek damages or injunction that it has claimed.
Consequently GTL made claims that the PTAB approved all 55 claims of the 816 patent that seeks to protect the GTL video visitation monitoring technology a crucial security characteristic that gives corrections employees to monitor video visitation between the inmates and their friends and family members and a technology that is required in all U.S. jails and prisons that make use of the video visitation technology. These claims made by GTL are totally inaccurate, this is because GTL is only asserting a single independent claim and a bigger number of dependent 816 patent’s claims in its lawsuit with Securus. Securus Technologies is assertive on the fact that it doesn’t apply claimed fundamental security feature revealed by that one independent claim.
The unicorn queen, Doe Deere, founded the popular cosmetic company ‘Lime Crime’ in 2008. Originally born in Russia and raised in New York City, even as a young girl she always had a passion for creating. Before she became a successful business owner, Doe Deere’s, first passion was music. She played in a band with her now husband and business partner for awhile and then moved on to her love for makeup.
Bright colors were her favorite kind of makeup. Unfortunately, bright makeup wasn’t so popular and really hard to find. For that reason, she decided to take it upon herself to create them and soon enough ‘Lime Crime’ was born. Today, Lime Crime has a following of 2.6 million on Instagram. The company gained great attention because other girls, to her surprise, were interested in those bright and unusual colors. Her customers also love that her makeup is animal cruelty-free, a huge plus! She gives them the nickname “unicorns” because, just like her, they were born different and aren’t ashamed of it.
Being a business woman wasn’t always easy for Doe. She dealt with discouragement from others and setbacks in the company. She was once told that it would be impossible to sell makeup online because women wanted to try it on before buying. Well, She definitely proved her critics wrong. Later, back in 2014, her company’s website was hacked of some customers information. Though it wasn’t her fault, she took responsibility and worked to gain back the trust of her customers.
Doe is a brilliant example of a person that goes after their dreams and sticks with her vision even when things go wrong. She’s become a role model and inspiration to young female entrepreneurs. She was recognized on the self-made magazine alongside with Suze Orman and Arianna Huffington. In her words, quoted from galoremag, “I love what I do and It feels good to be recognized”.
