GreenSky Credit is an a typical finance company headquartered in Atlanta that provides loans for housing and home-improvement projects and is doing extremely well. Its CEO, David Zalik, co-founded the company in 2006 and, since then, has stood out for not only his success but also for – unlike many other financial startups – having no difficulties working with big banks. Among other things, GreenSky Credit generates and services loans for major banks and earns tidy profits as a result.
The company is known for being “frictionless.” In fact, clients can apply for a loan on their cell phone and get a decision within seconds. While GreenSky Credit rarely offers loans over $65,000, they do a tremendous volume of business, and they farm out some of their services to contractors to reduce overhead.
Zalik has become a billionaire through his company, but he’s not the type to toot his own horn; in fact, he rarely gives interviews or speaks with the press. Nevertheless, Zalik is drawing headlines in the financial press by taking the first steps towards making GreenSky Credit public, and an IPO to the tune of five billion is being forecast. Because of Zalik’s comfort in both the corporate and startup communities, the Wall Street debut of his GreenSky Credit is something savvy investors are looking forward to.
While running a highly innovative company, Zalik is known for his old-fashioned financial conservatism. The culture at GreenSky Credit isn’t like the go-go image that many startups present. There are no ping-pong tables at the office or catered concerts by rock stars for employees. Like Warren Buffet, Zalik doesn’t waste a penny no matter how successful he becomes. Perhaps this attitude comes from the company’s humble origins; for the first eight years of its history, Zalik relied on a mere 10 million, raised with his own real estate as collateral, to keep the operation going.
There is a growing trend in corporate America. This trend is the realization that giving to charity can pay off in a business sense. Many companies are realizing that by donating more charity its helps people realize that they as a company care about their fellow humans. Supporting communities is also a good move in that it allows individuals to get assistance that they would otherwise be able to get. In realizing the financial benefits to the shrines many corporations are creating charitable arms of their businesses. These charitable branches are able to focus 100% of their attention on finding the best charity for their company’s money. By giving at this type of attention they are able to ensure that they are helping out the best calls available.
Stream energy was one is the first companies to realize the benefit of supporting their community. Stream energy created separate friends called stream cares. This branch focuses on helping out where they can. Stream energy believes that it is beneficial to give back. Stream cares focuses on many different projects. One of these projects that they are very proud of is their support of children in need. Stream cares focuses on providing assistance for homeless children. This assistance comes in the form of financial health as well as help with getting basic necessities. They also bring homeless children to a water park for the day. While this may sound shortsighted this generosity provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to its beneficiaries.
Another benefit of having a dedicated charitable arm of the business means that they are able to act quicker and more decisively. For instance, when hurricane Harvey devastated Houston Texas stream energy was able to act quickly. The company responded immediately to the needs of the citizens of Houston Texas. Floodwaters rose over night destroying many homes and trapping thousands in their homes. The devastation also has long-term effects on many people. It left more vulnerable individuals without home or source of income. This loss can easily put people in situations of homelessness for years after the initial disaster. Luckily organizations like stream cares were available to help people get back on their feet.

Jeunesse Global has risen to become one of the most important brands in the global health and beauty industry. Starting from the humblest beginnings, Jeunesse went from a garage-based startup that was the brainchild of a retired Florida couple into one of the most rapidly expanding and high-selling companies in the world of health and beauty.
But as unlikely as this story sounds, Jeunesse cofounders Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis were no ordinary Florida retirees. The couple had been known for decades as two of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the North American direct-selling business, having formed dozens of companies that were highly successful.
As Ray and Lewis approached their 70s, they thought they would give retirement a try. But the couple didn’t anticipate the loss of action, excitement and meaning that would come with endless days of idleness and boredom. Within just a couple of weeks, Ray and Lewis had already resolved to start another company. They began selling a few health and beauty products out of their garage. And the rest is history.
Throughout the growth of Jeunesse, the driving factor behind the company’s success has been its ability to spot market niches that had gone unanswered by the biggest names in the industry. One example of the company’s innovative products is its Instantly Ageless micro-crème and facial cleanser.
Instantly Ageless was conceived as a low-cost means to deliver salon-quality care to those who require high-end skin cleansing but have neither the big money nor the big time required to go to salons. Instantly Ageless also packs one of the most potent anti-aging substances known to modern beauty care. Called APT-200, Jeunesse Global’s patented anti-aging molecule has been clinically demonstrated to erase the worst effects of aging from users’ skin.
APT-200 is able to reduce wrinkles, prevent the formation of new wrinkles and restore youthful elasticity that has been lost to the aging process. The molecule is also able to give facial skin a healthy and vibrant glow that only Jeunesse Global products can deliver. It is one of the many products that Jeunesse has developed to create Generation Young.
