The Chainsmokers Embrace Pop’s Dark Side

In the two short years since The Chainsmokers first took the music charts by storm, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have rarely left the radio waves, with electronic-tinged, pop hits including Roses, Paris, Something Just Like This, and Don’t Let Me Down. Having first made a name for themselves as producers, the duo clearly know how to craft a hit, but what remains to be seen is their ability to keep the hits coming.

The group first came together in New York City, remixing for indie bands, only falling into pop superstardom, and the group’s name, by accident. Pall and Taggart aren’t as connected to The Chainsmokers’ moniker as they are to their music, stating in past interviews that the name really came about from a college-era predilection for weed and the fact that no one else had taken it.

For all the lack of creativity they’ve given to their title, there’s a new album on the horizon, and The Chainsmokers appear primed to start experimenting. The new music, the duo states, will be darker and edgier, but if the lead single, Sick Boy, is any indicator, will be every bit as hit-worthy as its predecessor. The darkness was inspired, as, the duo claims is all their music, by the society around them, in this case one that is social media-obsessed. Putting melody to the voices of their generation, the new music is not only a reflection of their peers, but of their own disillusionment with superstardom, perhaps best summed up by one of Sick Boy‘s lyrics:

How many likes is my life worth?

For The Chainsmokers, their biggest driver is not a futile attempt to replicate past success, to gain more likes, but to keep making music that excites them, and hopefully their fans as well. They describe it as something beyond just the sound of the music, but instead it is the emotions the music inspires. That, for them both, is the goal, and it is, they believe, most easily achieved by maintaining that balance between pop and the EDM underground scene they started out in.

Mike Baur Knows If You’ve Got What It Takes To Compete In The Big Business World

If you’ve always wanted to run your own company and you’ve finally found that idea you think might be your angle, it may be time to take the next steps to building your company around it. Mike Baur, the founder and chairman of Swiss Startup Factory (SSUF) has been showing new business owners how to do that, and SSUF is the place where they can learn the basics of taking ideas to the building stage. But to really build a strong business in an industry that’s highly competitive, you need to be mentally prepared for the hurdles you will face. Baur has a few pointers he believes entrepreneurs should follow.

 

Starting up your own business means you need to have a network of connections, and you need to build that network. You’ll usually need startup capital whether that’s in the form of venture investing or a bank loan, and Mike Baur says you need to know how to pitch your business to those who you need financing from. You also need to be willing to make changes to your business whenever times change. You never should change in terms of customer service or ethical values, but sometimes you have to adapt the way you so business. But most importantly, Baur says you need to know which risks you’re willing to take and never be afraid of failing when you take them.

 

Before he decided to start a business incubator, Mike Baur was an impressive bank manager both for UBS and Clariden Leu. Back in 1991 when Baur first entered banking, it was a job you would start out in as an apprentice. He was only 16 when he first started learning basic account management, credit and loans. He got his bachelor’s degree at the University of Bern and his master’s at the University of Rochester. He was an advisor to some of Switzerland’s top investors, and made it to a rarely achieved executive status when he joined Clariden Leu.

 

The reason Mike Baur left his position in the big bank was that the 2008 recession and its aftermath left many unpleasant changes in how banking was run. He wanted to get out of the office and take chances on something more exciting that business investing offered. It was certainly a big pay cut Baur took to get the SSUF up and running, but he certainly wouldn’t trade it for the world. The SSUF has seeded businesses from just about every industry, but the internet of things has become a growing field that’s been invested in.

 

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Has Positioned Bradesco For Future Success

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi had decided to become the new CEO for Bradesco back in 2009, the bank was at an interesting turning point. Bradesco had fallen back into the pack and its future was rather uncertain. Cappi even went so far as to temper expectations when he first took over.

In his mind, it seemed unrealistic for Bradesco to aim for the top spot as soon as he assumed control. Becoming the top bank was not the primary objective. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi believed that becoming the best bank to their customers was more important than being considered the best overall.

After becoming president in 2009 and building Bradesco’s brand, he would eventually decide to purchase the local HSBC branch for a whopping $5.2 billion US. This purchase allowed Bradesco to set their sights a bit higher. This acquisition gave Cappi the chance to speed up the process of becoming the number one banking institution in Brazil.

Instead of waiting several years for the natural growth steps to take place, the purchase served to expedite the process. Because of this bold maneuver, the future is considered to be brighter than ever for Bradesco. Industry forecasts underwent an immediate shift and Cappi was given a very prestigious award for his efforts.

ISTOE Dinhero (also known as Money) chose Cappi as the Entrepreneur of the Year in the wake of this transaction. Once the aforementioned transaction took place, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi elected to step down from his presidential chair. From there, he decided to create an environment where others could learn in his stead.

He established a corporate university and spoke to a variety of executives from all levels of Bradesco in order to make sure that the bank was being placed in the best position to win over the long haul. The proper autonomy was also granted to the executives that were promoted to fill his shoes.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi held meetings in the Noble Hall and he let attendees know that anyone who stepped to the microphone would need to have something to say. Trabuco asked all of the meeting’s attendees to have plans of action that could be used to assist the bank going forward. He also elected to open up the search for some additional market professionals that could assist Bradesco in their future endeavors.

While he may have stepped down from his chair after the HSBC transaction, Trabuco remains heavily involved in the day to day aspects of working with the bank. He was even given the opportunity to become a part of the French ministry and his name was ventured as a prime candidate for a takeover.

Those who know him best say that he will leave. One of the executives who is most familiar with Cappi says that he is “born” to work with this bank and thanks to his skillful techniques, they are now positioned to succeed well into the future. Now that he has taken over for Lázaro de Mello Brandão as the chairman of the Board of Directors, that future is now even brighter.

Jeunesse Global continues strong sales with NV foundation and bronzer

Jeunesse Global has taken many in the health and beauty industry by surprise. The company is still less than a decade old. Yet it has been growing faster than any other company in the global health and beauty space. This has left many people across the world curious as to what the magic formula is behind the incredible success of this firm, which was completely unknown just a few years ago.

Part of the Jeunesse success puzzle can be traced back to the company’s dynamic founders. Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis had long been well-known throughout North America as one of the power couples of that region’s health and beauty industry. After spending an entire career building some of the most successful companies in the direct-marketing, health and beauty businesses, Ray and Lewis finally decided that they wanted to try retirement.

The couple retreated to their Florida mansion and began enjoying days of golf, lounging by the pool and dining out with friends. But it didn’t take long for the ambitious couple to realize that they still had the competitive itch that had driven them to excellence for so many years. Lewis began selling a few products out of the couple’s garage. It didn’t take long for Ray to jump in as well, kicking off Jeunesse Global as a going concern.

But the real secret behind Jeunesse Global’s phenomenal success has been its equally phenomenal products. One of those products is the company’s NV foundation and bronzer. As a base upon which makeup can be evenly and attractively applied, NV ranks with some of the best products on the market. But NV is also able to act as a standalone beauty-enhancement tool. Many users find that they no longer need to wear makeup at all when using the product. This is the work of a closely guarded secret molecule that the company simply refers to as APT-200.

This molecule has been specially designed by Jeunesse Global scientists. It is able to sharply reduce the number of wrinkles marring a user’s face, and it is able to prevent new wrinkles from forming. This is just one of the incredible products from Jeunesse.
