People who are in dire need of psychotherapy often have a hard time approaching it because of the difficulty and fear faced by a patient. The idea of walking into an office and pouring your heart out sitting right in front of a complete stranger was a difficult one to imagine let alone execute and left a lot of people procrastinating on it. Addressing this very problem, CEO Oren Frank started a company by the name of Talkspace in the year 2012. The purpose of the company was simple, to provide professional psychotherapy to billions of people around the world with ease by making use of their mobile phones.
Recently, Oren Frank Has decided to take the next step in the company’s journey by hiring a Chief Medical Officer. Assuming the role of Chief Medical Officer at Oren Frank’s company is Neil Leibowitz, a former United Health Senior Medical Director. The Arrival of Neil Leibowitz means that the physicians at Talkspace will be able to provide a prescription for medication when required. With anxiety and depression reaching dangerous levels in young people the company will be focusing even more extensively on mental health and has also changed its policy of not intervening during an emergency such as one where a patient could be harmed. Employees are now encouraged to find contact information during such times. Connect Oren Frank on Twitter
CEO of Talkspace, Oren Frank is very passionate about his work and takes it to his twitter account to talk about various mental health problems and its causes and effects. In some of his recent tweets he has pointed out important issues such as how to convince a victim of mental illness to seek help, how today’s teens suffer from loneliness stress cyberbullying and various such social problems and even shared an article explaining the actual cost (in numbers) that declining mental health will have on finance and economy around the world.

Jeunesse Global was created in 2009 by Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis when they discovered the powerful properties of stem cell research on skincare. The company has grown to more than a billion dollars in annual sales and they have thousands of distributors working around the world.
One of the more well-known products is the Luminesce line. This product line was developed by dermatologists and Dr. Nathan Newman, a physician who has used stem cells to help improve the body. The formula contains APT-200, a human growth factor with more than 200 different kinds of growth factors. Dr. Nathan Newman reveals that stem cells derived from adult human adipose are more efficient than plant-derived stem cells.
Dr. Donna Antarr is one of the members of the company’s scientific advisory board and recently shared some tips and tricks to get the most out of the Luminesce line. She revealed the best way to use the products and apply them in a certain manner. She reveals the line can help improve the appearance of all skin types, regardless of age. The product has more than seven products that create a complete nighttime and daytime routine.
The routine includes the Youth Restoring Cleanser, the Cellular Rejuvenation Serum, the Flawless Skin Brightener, the Daily Moisturizing Complex, the Advanced Night Repair and the Body Renewal. It also comes with the Ultimate Lifting Masque which is not used every day. Instead, it is recommended that clients use the masque once or twice each week.
The star of the line is the Cellular Rejuvenation Serum which has the highest concentration of APT-300. It is the best selling product in the line and provides the skin with a radiant glow that your friends will be begging to know what you have done to your skin.
The serum should only be applied to clean, dry skin and is best used after the Youth Restoring Cleanser because the skin will be able to absorb the ingredients better. It is best to massage the serum in upward circles because it will encourage the skin to stay in a lifted position. Apply 1-2 pumps morning and evening.
David Zalik is a college dropout, and a billionaire. The CEO of GreenSky Credit found a niche lending market that offers loans to people for home improvement projects. Zalik offers cheap financing with a very simple application process. In a manner of seconds, customers can find out if they are not just preapproved for financing, but receive a full approval. Zalik does not charge any interest or require any payments for the first 12 months of the loan.
GreenSky Credit is a $3.6 billion company. The business model is simple, match consumers with banks offering home improvement loans. In 2016, the Atlanta-based company ranked third in overall value when compared to other finance-related tech companies who receive venture capital and remain private. The only two fintech companies that came in ahead of Zalik and his company at the time were SoFi and Stripe.
Zalik moved from Israel to the U.S. with his family when he was just four. Zalik did not attend high school and was once enrolled at Auburn University. Zalik left Auburn to put his attention to a computer-related company he created. Zalik is on the radar of many media outlets, but he eludes almost any attention that comes his way. He rarely answers any emails, phone calls or any other communication from any media-related agency. When Bloomberg interviewed him on Aug. 31, 2016, it was his first interview.
Although the attention is tough to avoid, Zalik formed partnerships with well-known banks such as Fifth Third Bancorp and SunTrust. In 2016, Fifth Third bought a $50 million stake in GreenSky Credit. Unlike chief rivals such as Lending Club, whose stock has plummeted nearly 80 percent since its high in 2014, Zalik and GreenSky Credit seem to have found a niche market, and the company is receiving high praise form fintech insiders.
