To build a strong foundation for his career, Bruce Levenson earned his higher education by studying at Washington University, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Arts as well as earning his J.D. from American University.

In recent Forbes news, Bruce has been appearing because of his involvement with a lawsuit with a New Hampshire Insurance Company. According to the lawsuit, there was a breach in a contract that was made on the behalf of the insurance company. This lawsuit is only involved the former owners of the Atlanta Hawks and not the current owners of the team. Though, the former owners are claiming the the insurance company is not paying according to the policy, which states that it would cover losses that were revolving around certain employment practices, including wrongful termination.

According to several statements that have come out, the standing of this lawsuit and claim is still pending and confidential to the public. The insurance company has continued to claim that there has been no breach of contract for them, while AHBE is going to seek out additional penalty funds if the insurance company continues to deny the claim, since they claim that a representative of the insurance company even stated they should have received a payout for their policy. There is not much more information as to why the statement was made, or how things will progress from here for the two parties.

 

Adam Goldenberg is One of LAs Top CEOs

Adam Goldenberg has built his latest start up success, JustFab, using some simple and proven tactics. JustFab is a VIP membership celebrity style service. The company raised $55 million in capital just last year. This is his latest success story after selling his gaming service, Gamer’s Alliance, in the late-1990s and a turn owning a successful internet brand incubator in the mid-2000s. He is certainly one of the most successful CEOs in Los Angeles and has maintained that success for almost two decades.

Adam Goldenberg has built JustFab by trusting his numbers, using great hiring practices, and selling products that are in demand. It sounds simple, but so many CEOs fail to do this early in the process of building their companies because they are married to a certain idea and won’t abandon something that isn’t working just because they think it should work.

Goldenberg focuses his hiring practices on people who are passionate about what they do. He believes that this fire goes much further than any degrees or awards on Recode that may appear on a resume. Goldenberg does not want to hire anyone that doesn’t care about what his companies are trying to do. The CEOs basic belief is that employees won’t work hard for something that they won’t care about.

He also trusts his numbers and reacts to them quickly. He has said that he and his team look at their numbers on a daily basis at the minimum. He sometimes looks at them by the hour. These numbers indicate customer trends on Bloomberg. He trusts them implicitly and will abandon an idea if it doesn’t start working immediately.

Too many business leaders overcommit to an idea that they have or a product that they have developed because they are emotionally involved in it. This can be a dangerous and expensive practice if it is not remedied over time. Goldenberg is quick to take a product out of the catalog if nobody is buying it. This is even if he thinks that it is a great product. He only sticks with products that are giving him a profit.

Goldenberg is a young star and is one of the leaders amongst the CEOs in Southern California. He has built 3 great companies in just two decades leading companies. He has built these great companies using great hiring practices and by trusting his metrics. This takes an egoless leader who is willing to use the ideas of others.

Town Residential looks forward to serving the people of the area and forming more strategic financial partnerships.

 

Kabbalah and Religion in General

Religion is very funny. People have a lot of different reactions to religion. For one thing, people who believe in their religion tend to get really intense about it. Then there are those that laugh about religion as a whole. One interesting thing is when one group of people insists that their religion is right and the others are wrong. This can result in a lot of confusion for the outsider. When one is faced with the question of which religion is the right one, they may conclude that none of the religion is right. However, there is a source that draws a similar conclusion. The only thing is that according to this source, each religion has a piece of the truth.

This source is the Kabbalah Centre. This center was esrablished recently with the purpose of allowing some people to be able to look at the Kabbalah. One thing that could be said about the Kabbalah Centre is that it has something to say for every religion. It also talks about how the religion fits with the other religions as a part of the ultimate truth. For instance, according to the teachings of the Kabbalah, the Bible is filled with codes to life and unforeseen universal laws that are to be unraveled by the Zohar.

One thing that the Kabbalah Centre is meant to do is inspire unity. One way that the Spiritual Centre intends to unite people is by showing them the strengths of their religion. However, the teachings of the Kabbalah have been traditionally believed to be dangerous and only to be handled by devout students that are over 40 years old. However, for people that manage to get a hold of this source, it is going to be an interesting read. This center intends to bring about a lot of insights that could help people better understand religion.
