German gold bullion company Karatbars has launched a new report on the benefits of buying gold for security and investment. It explains that gold is a worldwide currency that is exempt from VAT and protected from inflation.
–Karatbars, the gold buying service based in Stuttgart, Germany, has launched a new report on the benefits of buying gold bullion. Gold can provide insurance for a customer’s portfolio as its value doesn’t move in line with other assets such as equities or property, and because it’s a universal finite currency it is held by most banks.
More information can be found on the Karatbars website at: https://karatbars.com/?s=gankagold35 .
Karatbars is a company that offers customers and clients the chance to buy affordable 999.9 pure gold bullion as well as its own speciality line of gold merchandising, collector items and gift cards. It allows customers the independence to own, manage and control their personal Karatbars purchases, and strives to provide the highest levels of customer service for its clients.
The company website explains that its clients are primarily individuals, families, consumers and traders, and that these customers should expect to be treated with respect, with any concerns they have dealt with quickly and competently.
Karatbars emphasises that, in essence, gold is money and money is a currency. This means that gold is a form of currency, and is accepted in 194 different countries. It states the main reasons to buy gold are that it offers protection against inflation and currency reform, it allows the client to easily access global cash, and it is a stable investment in times of crisis.
In addition to this, the company says that gold is and will remain unimpaired, and there are limited resources and it is not reproducible. Global demand for gold is higher than its supply, and the purchase and sale of investment gold is exempt from VAT.
It goes on to underscore that many financial experts advise investing in gold, because of its safe nature. Karatbars says that experts advise having 10 – 20% of assets in gold, as a way to protect finances and family, as well as ensuring wealth preservation for the years ahead.
Full details of the history of gold and how to buy it for security and investment are detailed on the Karatbars website.

About a year after Tami Longaberger sued current Longaberger parent JRJR Networks over $1 million she loaned the company, JRJR has countered, suing Longaberger for fraud.
In the lawsuit filed Thursday in Texas, JRJR — previously known as CVSL — accuses her of failing to disclose millions of dollars in tax liabilities when JRJR Networks bought the Newark-based company in 2013.
Tami Longaberger was traveling and not available to comment Monday. However, her attorneys said the suit “lacks merit.”
“(We) anticipate it will be vigorously defended,” said Steven W. Tigges of Zeiger, Tigges & Little LLP.
The suit, filed in District Court of Dallas County, Texas, says that when JRJR Networks bought the Longaberger Co., it was unaware that the company had made a tax increment financing agreement with Newark on May 1, 1996, for $4.1 million.
The agreement was related to roadwork, lighting and other improvements made when Longaberger’s basket-shaped headquarters building was built. The original tax agreement was revised on April 1, 2007, to $2.6 million.
Those agreements “were not disclosed by (Tami) Longaberger” at the time of the purchase, the suit says.
To date, the Longaberger Co. owes $577,660.05 to various local taxing entities under the agreement, according to the suit.
In the suit, JRJR Networks is demanding that Tami Longaberger — who resigned in May 2015 as CEO of the company her father founded — pay the liability or release JRJR Networks from its obligations to pay the tax.
The suit’s allegations seem to be at odds with the parent company’s comments in October 2015. At that point, Licking County Auditor Mike Smith said the company owed hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes, and a CVSL spokesman said that the company had stopped payment because it was challenging the property-tax valuation of the headquarters building.
Longaberger CEO and President John Rochon Jr. said Monday the tax obligation came to light when the company engaged a real-estate agent to look at options for the iconic headquarters building.
When the company found out about the tax obligations, “it was a shock,” Rochon said.
“But much has come to light” since Tami Longaberger’s departure, Rochon said.
“We do everything we can to save her company … then we find out her intentions were filled with malice.”

Maria Price is driving in style. Pink style to be exact. But hey, this isn’t her first time receiving a pink vehicle. The Mary Kay Independent Executive Senior Sales Director has recently earned her second Cadillac.
The Mary Kay pink Cadillac is an iconic symbol of success, the most coveted incentive awarded by Mary Kay. These vehicles are only given to the most dedicated.
“It’s been a blessing and a challenge. I like to work. Mary Kay makes women successful,” she said.
Price received her new pearlized pink Cadillac XT5 Crossover, her fourth Mary Kay career car, in August at Luke Fruia Cadillac in Brownsville, USA. Mary Kay independent sales force members earn the use of a pink Cadillac by meeting and exceeding goals set within their Mary Kay businesses.
Price, a native of Mexico, began her career in Mary Kay as an Independent Beauty Consultant in 2012 and as a direct result of her accomplishments, became an Independent Sales Director in 2012.
As an Independent Sales Director, she chooses to provide education, leadership and motivation to other Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants and offers her customers high-quality products.
“I just want to be an instrument that God uses for women without hope due to little or no education, legal status or are single parents,” said Price.
“I want them to know that here they can shine like if they had a Harvard education.”
Price is a mother of six, who after working as a waitress for 11 years, got married and found her passion with Mary Kay. She prides herself on making her customers happy and making them her top priority.
“Cars earned by the independent sales force through this exciting program serve as a symbol of their hard work and success in their Mary Kay businesses, and the pink Cadillac is the ultimate, most recognizable symbol of achievement,” said Darrell Overcash, president of Mary Kay Inc. U.S.
“For 50 years, Mary Kay has continued to provide a rewarding opportunity selling irresistible products, changing the lives of women around the world.”
Since the Career Car Program’s inception in 1969, more than 144,000 independent sales force members have qualified or requalified to earn the use of a Mary Kay career car.
Currently, 6,032 Mary Kay career cars are on the road nationwide with approximately 1,318 of those being the coveted Mary Kay pink Cadillac.
Two pink cars later, Price owes her success to hard work and dreaming big.
“You can have so many things, cars, diamonds and trips, but you have to work hard,” she said. “You have to dream and think big.”

Skin care company Rodan + Fields has signed a 150,000-square-foot lease to expand into Bishop Ranch in San Ramon, California, USA, the company confirmed.
Rodan + Fields will remain headquartered in San Francisco at 60 Spear St., where it signed a lease for 62,500 squarefeet in 2013.
Rodan + Fields has leased 150,000 square foot at 2600 Camino Ramon at Bishop Ranch.
The deal reflects the company’s surging growth and the heightened appeal of the East Bay as a location for companies, with cheaper rents and more available office space compared to San Francisco.
Rodan + Fields had $626.9 million in revenue in 2015, nearly doubling its 2014 revenue of $330 million, according to Business Times research.
Bay Area employees grew to 365 in 2015, up from 250 in 2014.
Company wide, employees grew to 451 from 300 in the same periods.
Founded in 2002 by Stanford University-trained dermatologists Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields, the company uses a direct marketing model with independent consultants who sell its products. It is the second-largest woman-owned company in the Bay Area.
“Our expansion to the East Bay reflects the significant growth Rodan + Fields has been experiencing,” said Diane Dietz, CEO of Rodan + Fields, in a statement.
“Our new offices will enable us to continue the positive momentum as we work toward building a multi-billion-dollar prestige skincare brand.”
Dietz came CEO in January, succeeding longtime CEO Lori Bush, who retired last December.
By next March, the company will occupy 2600 Camino Ramon at Bishop Ranch, where about 1 million square feet of space was vacated in 2014 by AT&T (NYSE: T), which still occupies about half of the 1.8 million-square-foot building.
About Rodan + Fields
Founded by Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, Rodan + Fields’ dermatology-inspired skincare products and proprietary, technology-driven social enterprise platform are changing the way people engage in the skincare category, shop for products and care for their skin.
In 2007, the company made the unprecedented move out of department stores and into the world of social commerce in order to realize the doctors’ vision for providing the closest alternative to a professional skincare experience outside of a medical office and, in the process, empowering entrepreneurial opportunity.
Products are available through Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants and at www.rodanandfields.com .

For over 16 years, Total Life Changes has been providing an amazing line of health and beauty products along with a great business opportunity to millions of people around the world. Earlier this year, TLC launched Envidia, an advanced skin restorative serum with skin cell regeneration properties that is revolutionizing the world of skin care .
Skin care products play a crucial role in the daily health care routine. At present, women are looking for multi-beneficial skincare products which represents a driving force of innovation in the beauty category. Consumer’s preference for convenient and easy to use skin care products is increasing due to busy and active lifestyle of consumers. Total Life Changes approach in their product’s skin care portfolio is to provide innovative solutions, including various upgraded skin care products for resolving complex skin issues for better results.
Envidia is a patented formulation of bio active materials intended to help revitalize the skin and promote a firmer, younger looking complexion. This serum is designed to naturally accelerate the skin’s renewal process by providing the damaged skin cells with the necessary components of healthy, youthful skin.
By supporting collagen synthesis, Envidia may greatly improve the elasticity of the skin and the appearance of smoother skin. “With twice daily regular use of Envidia, this highly active and effective human growth factor serum can help renew the skin to achieve a more radiant appearance,” says Mari Jo Serdoner, Chief Brand Officer at Total Life Changes.
The patented skin restorative serum from Total Life Changes is intended to produce the following results:
· Reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and sun damage for a youthful complexion
· Help firm and tone the skin on face, neck and chest
· Designed to improve the texture and even skin tone for all skin types
Envidia is formulated with patented human growth factor technology which includes: growth factors, cytokines, chaperone proteins, peptides and other active ingredients. Cytokines and Growth Factors are beneficial for skin rejuvenation, due to their multifunctional activities such as promoting skin cell proliferation and stimulating collagen formation . While there are a great number and variety of these proteins, each is capable of promoting its own set of biological effects, from specific to broadly overlapping activities.
Cytokines are secreted proteins that play a role in both the induction and effector phases of all immune and inflammatory responses, including cell proliferation, intercellular communication, and cell death. Chemokines are small cytokines which attract and recruit other cells into a localized area to exert their biologic effects.
Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media contains many of the essential nutrients that the human body naturally produces and that are important for healthy skin. Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media is the main active proprietary ingredient containing growth factors that emit biological signals involved with cell growth and function. Our growth factors come from our licensed human progenitor cells lines derived from skin.
They are grown within ideal laboratory conditions where they can thrive and produce growth factors. The conditioned media they grow in contains the growth factors and proteins that have been secreted by the cells. This media is then prepared and formulated into what makes our serum. Understanding this may help dispel myths (that new human cells are topically applied after being extracted for each batch of cosmetics).
The protein families contained within the conditioned media send signals locally to our skin cells. Some of these proteins are involved in angiogenesis and wound healing while others can promote the synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins, like collagen, and inhibit matrix degradation (thinning of your skin). Envidia is designed to naturally accelerate skin regeneration by providing damaged cells necessary components of healthy and young skin. From wrinkles to fine lines and sunspots, Envidia will make your skin look and feel younger.
Total Life Changes will continue to develop products that offer inventive solutions and the most advanced technology in the skin care and antiaging industry. “TLC is changing the science of aging, Envidia is an essential product in your bathroom cabinet,” says Lucy Sandoval, Executive Assistant.
