MB2 Dental: Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva’s Dental Innovation

Within the dental industry there are really only two paths for a new entrant into the industry, firstly, a dentist can either join a established practice (which offers relatively little autonomy but good stability) or create their own practice (which is effectively the inverse of the previous example, with little in the way of stability but much in the way of personal autonomy). One dentist, however, a one Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, a practicing dentist who has a extensive background in both corporate dentistry as well as his own personal clinic, decided that it was time for a entirely new dental model, a entirely new way of conceptualizing the dental industry itself and the place of dental doctors within it. It was this idea, the desire to circumnavigate the rather stern dicotamy previously mentioned, that drove Dr. Villanueva to create MB2 Dental which vows to put doctors, and thus, patients, first above all other things.

 

MB2 Dental focuses on getting doctors to aid other doctors whilst simultaneously avoiding excessive micromanaging and autocratic interference which allows the companies dentists to do what they do best – focus on their work and their patients. This in turn means that patients themselves are getting leaps better attention and care than they would at most other, more traditional, dental clinics. The primary way that MB2 Dental facilitates Dr. Villanueva’s vision is by setting the company up to be dentist owned which means that personal autonomy is highly incentivised and thus better meets the demands of the free market which is a big plus for all parties involved.

 

When, in a recent interview for Ideamensch, Mr. Villanueva is asked why he thinks he has been so successful he responds by saying that his mentor always told him, “Not to be the smartest guy in the room,” meaning that you should not always be trying to come up with all of the answers yourself (since no one reasonably can expect to do so). Rather, Mr. Villanueva notes, he likes to surround himself with a wide array of advisors, each of whom has a different kind of specialty which then allows everyone to work in greater harmony and with a much higher degree of effectiveness. Simple as this might seem, the practice has been working quite well for Dr. Villanueva as his company is rapidly expanding with no end to success in sight.

 

MB2 Dental currently boasts nearly 600 full time employees and operates in over 70 different brick and mortar locations in over six different states spread out over the United States of America.

 

Lori Senecal: From Coach to Advertising Pioneer

It’s hard to believe that one of the most creative minds in the advertising industry was once just an unknown gymnastics coach. Nowadays Lori Senecal is known for her innovative advertising and marketing strategies. She has been highly successful despite being a self-proclaimed shy introvert. How does a gymnastics coach with a small personality become a pioneer in the advertising industry? The answer is through relentless effort and a consistent work ethic.

Senecal had the urge to pursue a career in business since she was in high school, but was sidetracked by her love of gymnastics. She even competed in competitions before turning to coaching because of her height. Senecal attributes much of her success to her time as a coach. She believes many of her leadership skills were learned and honed during this time. Even though Senecal loved coaching she eventually decided to put all her energy toward pursuing a career in business and enrolled in Montreal’s McGill University as a business major.

Senecal moved to Toronto after earning her degree and took a job in the media department of Vickers & Benson to work on the Ford account. After the demise of Vickers & Benson Senecal became the Canadian lead on the Coca Cola account.

With urging from colleagues who knew Senecal was capable of more she moved to New York to take on bigger goals. In the U.S. she was really able to showcase her creative marketing techniques. She quickly gained notoriety as an innovator and she recently spoke at the 3% conference.

Soon major agencies began courting the female leader. Kirshenbaum Bond & Partners was among the first to offer Senecal a job. KBP was impressed not only by her business knowledge, but by her personality overall. Because of this, Senecal was brought on as president, partner, and CEO. The company has since changed its name to Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal & Partners.

Lori Senecal is the first global CEO of CP+B. More details can be found on Adweek.

On December 7, 2016, Adam Goldenberg appeared on CNBS together with Fabletics owner, Kate Hudson. Hudson said they want TechStyle Fashion Group to go public. Goldenberg said the main aim of the move is “to go bigger.” He added that such a decision needs the involvement of other investors in the company.

Adam Goldenberg projects a subscription fee of $650 million this year by TechStyle Fashion Group. Hudson’s Fabletics brand will contribute around $250 million. Fabletics makes most of its income from its monthly membership fee of $50. Goldenberg said that as the company’s CEO, he has the role of telling people the importance of enrolling in this membership program by Fabletics.

On August 2016, an announcement was made regarding JustFab’s renaming to TechStyle Fashion Group. The change of name was a sign of the company’s continued use of technology by working with companies like JustFab and ShoeDazzle among others.

Goldenberg said that when they started the company with Don Ressler, they aimed at altering how shopping is done by enhancing on-trend fashion. He said the company has remained true to its vision. He added that this has helped the company become established in the fashion industry.

In April 2015 on techstyle.com, Goldenberg talked about JustFab and its future at the Splash Oakland, an annual event held by the founder and chief executive officer of Vator, Bambi Francisco. In 2014, when JustFab was just three years old, it earned $85 million through membership. This moved the company’s total earnings to $300 million, making it a “unicorn,” which refers to business with over a $1 billion valuation.

Goldenberg said joining that special club will not affect the way they operate. He added that that round of financing did not have as much impact on how the company operates as other rounds they had previously.

He said investing in the unicorns is worth. He noted that valuations are high in both public and private stock on rgtadvisors.com. He said the unicorns that are overvalued will definitely die and exit.

Goldenberg looked at the apparel and accessories’ $360 billion a year market in North America. He noted that despite the industry not growing, changes are being observed on the way people are shopping. Despite the number of customers that are shopping is increasing every day, there is a significant number that will still opt for storefront retail.

Danny Ferry Is the Subject of a Lawsuit by Former Hawks Ownership

The former ownership group of the Atlanta Hawks has sued the New Hampshire Insurance Company. The suit claims that the insurance company breached the contract terms based on the settlement claim made by Danny Ferry, the former general manager. Bruce Levenson is a controlling partner in the former ownership group. The lawsuit will not affect the current ownership group of the Atlanta Hawks.

Details of the Lawsuit

The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County. It is a civil action suit for insurance bad faith and breach of contract. According to the group, they had a policy that insured them against employment practices such as ‘workplace Torts’ and ‘Wrongful Termination’. According to them, they believe Danny Ferry’s claims are covered.

The former Hawks ownership reached a buyout agreement with Ferry for an undisclosed amount on June 22, 2015. The agreement ended a six-year contract worth $18 million that was signed in 2012. Two days after the buyout agreement, the Hawks franchise was sold to the Ressler-led group.

The current Hawks ownership said that they were aware of the lawsuit. However, they said that they were not a party to it since it involved parties that had no ties to the Atlanta Hawks.

What the court Documents Say

In a report by ESPN, court documents show that the amount being claimed is confidential. The documents state that the insurance firm refused to acknowledge that a claim had been made, which would thus have triggered the policy. According to the lawsuit, the insurance firm is in breach of contract for refusing to pay the covered losses.

Securus issues challenge, GTL takes rain check

Recently, Securus Technologies, the leading provider of inmate communications services, challenged its vocal opponent, GTL, to a game of technological one-on-one. The idea was to pit Securus’ widely acclaimed, proprietary video visitation technology up against GTL’s knock-off, dollar-store brand. As expected, GTL made an unqualified dash for the exit. This unwillingness to put its technology to the test signals that GTL doesn’t actually believe in its own core product, much less the fusillade of empty claims it has shot over Securus’ bow for the last two years.

 

First to market advantage

The truth is that GTL and other competitors have been playing catch-up with first-to-market Securus’ video visitation product since launch day, over a decade ago. Securus’ lead, rather than narrow, has widened to a yawning chasm that has seen its video visitation system become the dominant solution across the U.S. inmate communication market.

 

And this is all for good cause. Securus’ early rollout of the first VoIP-based inmate communication solution has saved prisoners and their families millions of dollars while allowing for unprecedented levels of contact between those who are incarcerated and those who love them. These benefits are not measured in mere dollars. It has been shown that prisons where Securus’ video visitation has been installed suffer from fewer disciplinary incidents as well as less contraband and fewer instances of the commission of felonies. This is due to the fact that the privilege of staying in nearly daily contact with one’s family provides an incentive for good behavior that few other things can. On top of this, inmates who stay connected with their outside lives maintain a level of hope that often otherwise dissipates with the passing years behind prison walls. Inmates who maintain hope and a sense of community outside of prison are far less likely to recidivist.
