The RealReal is Popping in 2018

Man or woman, if you are into fashion at all, you probably already know about The RealReal. Just in case you don’t, it is the most popular luxury consignor online, on app, and now, with a flagship store in New York City.

The RealReal was started by industry visionary, Julie Wainwright, at her kitchen table in 2011. Now, it has over 600 employees, the number one spot in the luxury consignment marketplace, a brick and mortar store, and soon, pop-up shops in select markets across the US.

On the heels of The RealReal’s success with their flagship store in NYC, they are smartly testing the waters in other cities with pop-up shops. Their first pop-up was in New York’s, SoHo, in 2016. It generated 2 million dollars in revenue. According to Allison Sommer, Director of Marketing for The RealReal, the average in-store sale is 6 times that of an online purchase. That is huge for a company that previously only had a digital presence.

Sommer says they are calling 2018, “the year of the pop-up.” The shopping experience is much different in store with the brand and its value becoming tangible. Sommer believes the value of a physical location will create greater brand recognition and loyalty. The RealReal has seen proof of this loyalty and brand awareness after the end of their pop-up in San Francisco, with growth of 500% in the area since.

The next pop-up is slated for Las Vegas, with more stores popping up around the US throughout the year. They are hoping to bring the pop-up energy from markets like New York, and LA, that are familiar with the concept, to new markets around the US, as other digital retailers have previously shown their worth in building brand recognition and creating a broader customer base.

While The RealReal wants to create the most dynamic and new shopping experiences for customers in new areas, they probably will not be able to provide cafes, or flower shops, in all of the pop-ups, like they did in NYC. However, they will have authentication, and gem experts, on staff at all of the shops. They have carefully curated a staff of experts to create a most unique and professional experience for their customers.

Dr. Mark Mofid Stresses Safety

Dr. Mark Mofid has been working with Dr. Gonzales from Brazil to create a better, safer implant for use in gluteal augmentation. Brazil is currently the most popular country to get the procedure done and is a destination for patients around the world who are looking to get a larger derriere. This is proven by the statistics of 20,000 surgeries in Brazil in 2012 compared to the 1,000 or so completed in the United States that year. This small number could explain why the procedure has only made the news in the United States because of celebrities who had the surgery and malpractice. Incidentally, Dr. Mark Mofid believes this could be changed with his invention that will make the lives of the patients better.

Based out of San Diego, Dr. Mark Mofid founded the M. Mofid M.D. FAC Facial and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery practice in July of 2004. Additionally, he is also affiliated with multiple hospitals in San Diego and the surrounding areas including Palomar Health Downtown Campus and Scripps Memorial Hospital. He not only performs gluteal augmentations, but a wide variety of other surgeries such as liposuction, face lifts, breast implants, and many more. He received a world-class education through the prestigious Harvard University as well as the Johns Hopkins University for his residency. At Harvard, he was a magna cum laude graduate when he completed his undergraduate degree. Impressively, during his time at Johns Hopkins, he completed a fellowship in advanced craniofacial surgery. Dr. Mark Mofid is board-certified to practice plastic surgery in the United States and was the leader of the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation’s (ASERF) task force for Gluteal Fat Grafting.

Above all else, Dr. Mark Mofid is committed to the safety of his patients and will only perform surgeries that he knows their body can handle that will produce the best looking results. Unfortunately, many doctors in the field do not abide by these same practices and will perform whatever procedures the patients requests without stressing the risks involved in order to charge higher rates. Thankfully, Dr. Mark Mofid looks out for his patients instead of the bottom line.

Daniel Taub and Iran’s Nuclear Threats Today

We have so many admirable people serving the government, but there’s not many of them that could show the same passion as Daniel Taub, Israel’s ambassador to the UK.

In a recent article from Independent, there’s a lot of practical and expert wisdom from Daniel Taub that we can read about. Let’s recap some of them here.

The Nuclear Bomb That May Come From Iran

Mr. Daniel Taub shared his expert knowledge that the Jewish state of Iran may be in a lot of turbulence because of the threat of nuclear weapons in their midst. Read more: Daniel Taub | Ideamench and Daniel Taub | Crunchbase

However, Mr. Taub still insists that the relationship of UK with Israel is still going to be healthy despite the signs that Iran is going for a slightly hostile position.

However, the newly signed agreement in Geneva would not be a big help in assuaging the threats posed by Iran, according to Mr. Taub’s assessment.

He even added that the most troubling part of it all is that despite the arrangments in the Geneva agreement, there’s still a lot of misinterpretation between Iran and the different negotiators involved in the situation.

Many in Israel have reacted negatively to the agreement, but Mr. Taub is hopeful that there will be a lot of changes and resolutions that could still be done to prevent the issues from escalating.

Another problem that Mr. Taub found in this entire Iran situation is that Iran is a country that just came in from the cold. There’s been a lot of issues happening in Iran lately, and it still needs some time to recover.

Despite that, Mr. Taub is hopeful that the nations can come together and agree on some middle grounds to prevent Iran from pursuing the nuclear threats that the stakeholders suspected them to do potentially.
