Nathaniel Ru Builds Modern Restaurant Chain

Sweetgreen is the brainchild of Nathaniel Ru. He is a leader that has been quite successful in bringing fast food to new generation in a different way. He could have put the same old restaurant dynamics in place and given people what they were used to. This was not his way though. He didn’t want to just slap a new name on an old restaurant model. He was much more interested in doing something that was outside the box. No one could foresee the unbelievable surge of energy from customers that would frequent these Sweetgreen restaurants. Customers would become super excited about the brand, and they would tell friends about this modern restaurant chain.


He states that he is basically telling a story through the design of the restaurants. That is why locations in Los Angeles are different from the Sweetgreen locations in Chicago. He has become someone that is paying very close attention to detail. He did not want to develop the same type of design for restaurants where there were obviously some different vibes in these cities. It has been very important for people to see that Sweetgreen was different than the other restaurants out there, and this contemporary vibe has shown people that.


The open kitchen allows customers to see ingredients that are being used. That is an interesting thing that people do not get the chance to see everywhere they go. In many areas it seems almost foreign to know what is going on in most kitchens or dining establishments. That is why this restaurant hits customers with the unexpected as soon as they walk in. From this moment of entry customers know that they are getting something that is different than what they are used to. That is exactly what Nathaniel Ru is striving for. He wants the customers to have something much different than what they are accustomed to. This is what sets the stage for another type of environment.


There are some customers that are ordering through the app. This is also a contemporary experience that is not available with all app users. That is what makes this restaurant stand out. It is like Nathaniel Ru made plans to capitalize on appealing to millennials.

Shea Butter for…Hair?


Shea butter has long been used as a staple in the lotion, cream and moisturizer industry. Very few people, though, know that it can actually make a great hair moisturizer. For the same reasons that it is great for the skin: moisturizing properties without a lot of greasiness, it is great for the hair. It is easy to use, inexpensive and does not contain a great deal of chemicals like many of today’s hair products do. Many women are now turning to shea butter for their hair needs because of all of the benefits that it comes from.


One company who knows how to do shea butter the right way is Eugenia shea. This is a company that is dedicated only to shea butter and getting it to as many people as they possibly can. They focus their efforts not only on selling the shea butter but also on teaching people how they can use it in their skincare and body care routine. Eugenia shea has made sure that they only provide their clients with the best skincare possible and that they are able to help their clients get the most out of their shea butter routine. They want to make sure that the people they help with shea butter know how to properly use it and all of the benefits that come with it.


Another way that shea butter users can rejoice: longer lasting perfume! Since shea butter is naturally scentless, it can be used in combination with any type of perfume and will help it to last longer on the body. This means that users’ perfume will last for a much longer time overall and they may end up needing to use less of it, saving them money. To use shea butter as a perfume enhancer, simply dab some shea butter onto the pressure point where the perfume is being applied and apply the perfume.

Check out what they have available, if you’re interested in trying shea butter as a part of your skin care routine, by visiting their website here:


Dick and Betsy DeVos Give Back-Changing The Lives of Children

Betsy DeVos is a well-known activist and graduate from Calvin College. Even in her university days, she was involved in politics while on campus. Politics and charitable work have been a passion of hers ever since. It has been more than three decades since she graduated, and she has had an active life all along. She was the Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, lead many campaigns, and even run political action committees. She is not the only person with a political background. Her husband, Dick DeVos, was nominated for the Governor of Michigan by the Republican party.

The DeVos family often combines forces to look for ways to solve social problems innovatively. Currently, Betsy is the chairman of the Windquest Group. This company is all about clean energy. The firm was founded by Betsy and her husband back in 1989. DeVos’s husband was also the president of Amway and the Orlando Magic NBA franchise. Though they have had many roles in life, the ones that they hold dearest to their heart is their nonprofit affiliations. The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation is one they value.  Additionally, she is on the board for the DeVos Institute of Arts Management, which is located at the Kennedy Center. Perhaps, her most known role is being a leading advocate for Alliance for School Choice as well as the American Federation for Children.

Giving students a choice in where they attend school is a powerful movement she advocates. These programs are now in 17 states as well as the nation’s capital. Educational choice is a powerful option for those who live in impoverished neighborhoods or have poor school systems. It allows parents to choose a private school in these areas as opposed to the public school system. To date, more than 250,000 students utilize this program. Indiana alone has more than 10,000 children on the program.

The program was considered radical at first, but both Betsy and Dick were a part of it from the beginning. Her life changing experience happened in Grand Rapids at the Potter’s House Christian School. The school has been in the community for more than 30 years. While checking the school out for the possibility of their children, they found that many people in these schools were low-income. These parents would do anything to keep their kids out of the public schools in their areas. The atmosphere was safe and they were learning. In a neighborhood where crime and violence are commonplace, having an option like that is miraculous to some. That is why the DeVos family is so passionate about children and their choices. They had the funding to put their children in the finest schools, but they know that not everyone has those options.
