Sweetgreen’s Nathaniel Ru

During their senior year as undergraduates at Georgetown University, Nathaniel Ru and his friends experienced difficulties in finding healthy places to eat. This led to the Georgetown business school seniors considering opening up an eatery to serve the local community with fresh and healthy food. Their idea gave rise to Sweetgreen in 2007. A farm-to-table style restaurant with over 60 stores in operation in the United States.

 

A distinguishing moment for the company came in 2009 when the founders got a bigger space near Dupont Circle, in the middle of Washington. They invited their parents and investors for the opening, but no customers showed up during the event and for the next two weeks. Instead of panicking, the founders came up with the idea of playing music every Saturday and Sunday outside the store. Their main aim was to connect music and food. This idea brought in customers and gave rise to sweetlife. Sweetlife has become the region’s largest music and food festival, attracting as many as 20,000 people.

 

Sweetgreen markets itself not just as a place to buy food but as a why? Company. Theresa Dold, the company’s head of digital marketing, likened the company to Apple in that they first think about why before thinking of the what. In pursuit of this ambition, the company has come up with five values that are posted in all its stores. First, Sweetgreen concentrates on a win, win, win which gives the customer and the community a stake. Second is the idea of thinking sustainably hence building for the long-term. Thirdly, they focus on keeping it real, this puts emphasis on authenticity of operations. The fourth is making it sweet and finally making an impact.

 

Sweetgreen engages in tribal marketing initiatives to help its customers feel connected to a community according to Dold and Ru. The customers can pay through the company’s mobile app which helps them contribute to sweetgreen in School, a program dedicated to teaching underserved students healthy eating habits. Another marketing initiative is to partner with other healthy lifestyle businesses in the community.

 

As the company expands, the founders ensure that it remains focused on its goals and initial aims. Thus, each of Sweetgreen new stores has its architect and a unique design that reflects local tastes. Every store has a food sourcing blackboard to show which ingredients came from local vendors.

 

Nathaniel Ru graduated with a BS in Finance from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business in 2007. He is a co-founder and currently a co-CEO of Sweetgreen. He has been recognized as a key innovator in food and business and awarded various accolades. Among them, named to Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, Food & Wine’s 40 Big Food Thinkers 40 and Under and Forbes’ 30 Under 30.

 

Fighting For A Fair Criminal Justice System Becomes The Goal Of George Soros

The 2016 U.S. election cycle may have been seen as a less than successful one for Democrat’s following the victory of Donald Trump in the Presidential election; however, major Democrat donor George Soros can be pleased his attempts to help liberal candidates succeed in state level elections proved successful across 2015 and 2016. Politico reports George Soros invested around $25 million in the campaign of Hillary Clinton, but also provided around $3 million in funding for the campaigns of criminal justice candidates from the Democratic Party.

During the 2016 election cycle George Soros was reported to be more engaged and excited about the political events of the world than he had in many, a return to the political coincided with a return to investing with his own Soros hedge fund on nytimes.com. After rekindling a 25 year political relationship with Hillary Clinton that had cooled after George Soros backed the candidacy of President Barrack Obama in 2008, the Hungarian born hedge fund expert with a personal fortune estimated at $25 billion began working closely with Clinton to discuss and form policy for her expected Presidency; George Soros eventually provided around $15 million for the Hillary Clinton campaign fund, and a further $10 million for Super PAC’s around the country campaigning on her behalf.

Despite the large sums of money donated by George Soros and other wealthy donors the 2016 Presidential election was eventually won by Republican Donald Trump, who George Soros had earlier in the campaigning season been accused of doing the work of ISIS. The Trump victory on nybooks.com has been seen by George Soros as being a major problem for those looking to protect the legacy of President Barrack Obama, which was a major topic of discussion for attendees at the Democracy Alliance event organized in the days after the election. The three day event for a group of wealthy donors had not originally been on the agenda of George Soros, but became a major aspect his diary as he looked to form a plan to stop the plans of the Republicans and bring the Democrat’s back to power. Visit the site opensocietyfoundations.org to know more about George Soros.

The Democracy Alliance event saw George Soros detail plans for targeting a number of state and local level elections in 2017 and 2018, which is a plan Soros and his advisors at the “527” group have already put into practice. Throughout 2015 and 2016 a number of criminal just positions at state and local level have come to the ballot and been the subject of heavy backing from George Soros across six states. The aim of George Soros in targeting these lower level elections and the provision of major donations to candidates from minority groups have been made in a bid to create a fairer criminal justice system in the U.S. by taking control out of the hands of the dominating white male group of the current time period.

Founder of Sweet Green, Nathaniel Ru

Nathaniel Ru has built his restaurant chain to 40 restaurants, with more to follow. The first restaurant was in Washington DC, established in 2007. Since then it has expanded to New York and California. There are more restaurants planned for Boston and Chicago. The restaurant was started with a number of new ideas that have helped it grow and gain business.

Sweetgreen, the restaurant chain Ru has grown, is dedicated to providing nutritional salads at a reasonable price. Unlike the vast majority of restaurant, in particular fast food places, these restaurants provided food that is actually good for you. Even better is that the salads are substantial and filling and so serve as an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. They offer a variety of salads that are sure to appeal to most people.

Sweetgreen has a unique way of sourcing its food. When it decides to enter a market the first thing it does is talk to local farmers. Ru wants to know what the farmers are growing rather than dictating what they want. In this way they can obtain ingredients that are new to customers. This also has the added benefit of reducing food waste as they are buying what is actually being grown. An example would be broccoli, where the leaves of the plant were being tilled back into the earth the farmers as nobody wanted them. It turns out their just as healthy as the crowns so Ru made a deal to buy these which saves on food waste and gives customers something they haven’t had before.

Their real estate strategy relies on the sequencing of new stores. They open stores in upper class areas of the city in order to be near where people live, rather than where they work. In this way they want to be able to sell not just for lunch but dinners and weekends as well.

In 2007 Nathaniel Ru obtained a bachelors degree Finance from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. That same year he opened Sweetgreen with two other individuals. The goal of the company is to provide local, sustainable food that is healthy and well priced. In 2010 Ru and his partners also launched Sweetlife, which is a music festival. One of the goals of the festival he established is to be carbon neutral and also celebrate healthy living.

 

Thor Halvorrsen: A Champion of Human Rights

Most people have enough empathy in nod in approval when they see a human rights activist. They have enough empathy to sneer in disgust when they see a violation. They might donate a dollar here or there, but they do not give their lives for the sake of others. They do not dedicate themselves completely to a worthy cause. Even when somebody becomes a missionary for a week, they still come home and merge back into their daily life. There are very few people who will dedicate everything to fighting injustice and standing for human rights. Thor Halvorrsen is among the few individuals who fight for what is right with all of his being. Thor is the President of the Human Rights Foundation.

The Human Rights Foundation Fights For Freedom of Worship

Religion is something that people hold dear to their heart. It is more than a few little rituals to them. It is the nature of reality and defines how they are supposed to conduct themselves in the world. However, sometimes people can become so inflamed by their religious beliefs that they want to violently stomp out all other religions. Thor Halvorrsen and the Human Rights Foundation recognizes that this is an injustice. They believe that people should have freedom of worship. Even religious minorities should have this freedom.

The Fight Against Socialism And Freedom To Acquire Property

One of Thor’s central campaigns is the fight against socialism, especially since it seems to be on the rise in the United States. Halvorrsen recognizes this as a troubling trend. This is not because he believes that all socialist governments are corrupt but rather because they can become corrupt quite easily. On socialism, people cannot own land or property. The government owns everything and distributes it. Accordingly, socialism is recognized as a basic violation of human rights. While the central theme of socialist rhetoric may be to help the poor, it actually ends up hurting them.

As the President of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorrsen knows how to identify human rights violations and how to take action against them.

Sweet, Fresh and Healthy with Sweetgreen

Nathaniel Ru and his friends were in their final year at the Georgetown University in Washington DC when they were hit with the idea of Sweetgreen. They thought of the way they could provide a place where they could offer a healthy eating place within the University. After laboring for the first few years, Sweetgreen has managed to establish itself into a 21 store chain across the United States of America. They faced difficulty during the startup as the landlord would not listen to their idea. The landlord had a prior experience with these boys as she happened to be the landlord of the building that these boys lived in.

 

The three gentlemen could not be deterred by the landlord. To show their determination, they would call her at least once in a day for a whole month until she agreed to meet with them. For Nathaniel Ru, this would be the first day he wore a suit as well as the last one. During this meeting, they armed themselves with a business plan detailing their plan and a budget. The landlord advised these three gentlemen to look for an architect as well as some investors. She also advised them to prepare a real plan that would look appealing to investors. Nathaniel and his friends spent around three weeks looking for an architect and financial investors.

 

According to the head of marketing for Sweetgreen, the startup uses as marketing strategy similar to the one of Apple. First, the strategy allows the company to be social and at the same time smart and sexy. The strategy also focuses on been local. Despite having expanded to various cities, Sweetgreen has maintained its core values, and it continues to serve the community. Some of the core values of Sweetgreen include:

  • Win, win and win. This means that everyone should benefit from the startup. This includes workers, customers and even the owners and the entire community.
  • Every decision by Sweetgreen should consider the long term effects.
  • The third core value of Sweetgreen is keeping it real. This means that everyone and everything associated with Sweetgreen should be authentic and original.

 

Over the years, Sweetgreen has managed to open branches in other cities across the United States. There are stores in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. The startup continues to offer healthy and fresh products to its customers. To ensure local participation, Sweetgreen acquires its product locally. Over the years, the company has held educational forums in different states to educate students on the need for healthy living.

 

Markus Rothkranz: Be Limitless

Health guru Markus Rothkranz has worked tirelessly to provide the public with food and health tips. Believing health is an important factor of our everyday life, Markus Rothkranz took the time to explain his tips on the journey to freedom.

Markus centered the video around his phrase “to be limitless you must rid yourself of limitations”. Many individuals seek the need to become free. Most individuals rarely take the time to shed the limitations placed upon them. Markus explains how those limitations will cause you to slow down. Without shedding limitations one can never achieve true limitless freedom.

Markus explains how we are born into limitations. From birth parents and society limit what is an acceptable accomplishment to the youth. By hearing “no” and “don’t do that” repeatedly, individuals manifest the idea that some things can not be achieved.

Markus strongly believes the only way to live limitless is to do what you feel is correct. He recommends all individuals seek personal satisfaction and happiness. Following true happiness will attract positive energy and people into your life. The more positive energy around you, individuals will experience a more powerful outcome. Living in a negative mindset will produce a negative outcome.

Markus urge individuals not to chase money. Finances is only a tool. He believes money will never change or shape the true character of a person. Markus explains the only journey to freedom is positive energy and self satisfaction. Mark recommends everyone take chances and stand out in the pursuit of their own happiness and freedom.
