Martha Stewart's Image Makeover: How Prison Helped Her Change

SAVANNAH, GA, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prior to 2001, Martha Stewart had been the do-it-yourself darling and domestic queen of homes and kitchens for decades, so it would seem out of character for her to do something that would cause her to be arrested, tried, and convicted. However, in December 2001, Stewart became involved in an insider trading scandal that led to her being sentenced to five months in prison. Interestingly enough, she was never convicted for the insider trading itself. So Georgia-based developer and hotelier, Charlton Claxton, is taking a look back at why she went to prison in the first place and how it ended up changing her public image for the better.

Where It Started
Martha Stewart’s brand was soaring after the 1997 launch of her company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Stewart was the chairwoman, president, and CEO of the thriving company, which included television, print, and merchandising divisions.

Stewart then became the first female, self-made billionaire in 1999 when the company went public. The IPO was $18 per share and by the end of trading reached an incredible $38 per share. But Stewart’s downfall came after she sold all 3,928 shares of her ImClone Systems stock in 2001 to save herself from a $45,673 loss. She obtained information about the stock illegally from a former broker contact.

Where It Ended Up
After a six-week trial in 2004, Stewart was found guilty on felony charges of conspiracy, obstruction of an agency proceeding, and making false statements to federal investigators. She was sentenced to five months in federal prison and two years of electronic monitoring probation.

At trial, she came off as “Mean Martha” – rude, demanding, cheap, and petty. Stewart's polished yet chilly image had taken a beating in trial testimony. And the continuous daily news coverage of her entering the courthouse toting pricey handbags and wearing stylish heels didn't help.

Then, she went to prison and turned into “St. Martha” – humble, empathetic, and advocate for the oppressed. On her first day outside the lockup in March 2005, she waved graciously, chatted, and served hot cocoa to the press. So how did her transformation from Mean Martha to St. Martha happen in just under five months?

Prison Begins
The beginning of Martha Stewart's image overhaul actually began in 2004 when she called a news conference to announce she was reporting to prison early, despite a pending legal appeal. Wearing a white suit against a backdrop of color swatches (all thoughtfully chosen), Stewart projected a change in attitude that began the repair to her reputation and the kickstart to propel her company forward again.

In September 2004, Stewart asked the judge to start her sentence as soon as possible. She added personal and heartfelt details to her announcement: she would miss her dogs, horses, and cats, and wanted to be home in time to plant a spring garden.

Three weeks later, Stewart traveled to Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia for the prison intake process: fingerprinted, strip-searched, and assigned a bunk bed in a building with 60 inmates and two showers.

What could have been a terrifying experience for her was made easier by making friends. At Christmas, in an open letter published online, she asked her fans to think of her fellow inmates and seek sentencing reforms.

Release from Prison
Stewart left prison in March 2005 in a crocheted cape made by a fellow inmate, and she even paid for a flatbed truck that would give photographers a better view. Back at her estate in New York, Stewart barely waited for the sun to come up before delighting the encamped reporters and photographers by appearing outside with her dog and horses and taking time to discuss lemons and cappuccino. She even sent out paper cups of hot cocoa.

And going to prison gracefully and admitting her wrongs ended up being a very good thing – financially. Stock prices for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, which had lagged, quickly doubled. And as she worked off time in Alderson Federal Prison Camp, she found herself popular enough to be given starring roles in two television shows.

Where She’s at Today
After finishing her prison and house arrest terms, Stewart refused to keep a low profile. She was soon back on the air with "The Martha Stewart Show" and signed deals with Home Depot, PetSmart, and Michaels.

Stewart's comeback has experienced some failures along with its successes. In 2015, Sequential Brands Group announced it would acquire Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in a deal valued at $353 million after the company posted losses 11 out of the previous 12 years.

However, in the last few years, Stewart has reemerged as a beloved and still shockingly relevant personality. She was a surprise hit at the 2015 Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber. In 2016, she launched a meal-kit line called "Martha & Marley Spoon." She even hosts a cooking show on VH1 with the rapper Snoop Dogg. And, her Twitter account is one of the best online.

But to Claxton, it makes sense. Stewart is constantly evolving, and she's determined to come out on top!

The nonprofit trailblazer of heart health awareness aims to educate young women with fun and interactive activities that encourage a heart healthy lifestyle.

At Heart N Hands we create a positive environment so that transitioning to a lifestyle that embraces physical activity and a healthy diet is supportive and comfortable.”

— Cynthia Hunter-Johnson, BP, MA

NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES , January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Heart N Hands, the nonprofit trailblazer of heart health awareness, is excited to announce the expansion of its first affiliate chapter in Nashville, Tennessee. The 501 (c) 3 organization, founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Essence Banks, aims to educate young women with fun and interactive activities that encourage a heart healthy lifestyle.

Cynthia Hunter-Johnson, BP, MA, will lead the Heart N Hands Nashville Chapter. A versatile philanthropist who has dedicated her knowledge and expertise to spreading awareness of heart health, Hunter-Johnson will coordinate events and programming in synergy with the organization's mission. She is joined by three members of the Nashville Advisory council, Annessa Cook, LPN, Dr. Nevonna Davis and Theresa Miller, MBA.

As heart disease continues to be the number one killer of women, Heart N Hands' goal is to spread awareness regarding heart disease prevention and overall health and to offer support and educational tools to act as a catalyst towards a healthy mind and body. "At Heart N Hands we create a positive environment so that transitioning to a lifestyle that embraces physical activity and a healthy diet is supportive and comfortable. Whether you want to begin your journey by eating healthier or trying different forms of exercise, we encourage and motivate you at the starting line," Hunter-Johnson says.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Heart N Hands found innovative ways to continue its mission.

Other accomplishments include providing fitness instruction and heart health education to over 100 Girl Scouts in the Louisiana East Chapter who earned their “new” Heart N Hands "Love Your Heart" patch.

A heart disease survivor for 16 years, founder and president of the board Essence Banks started Heart N Hands when she realized heart disease could affect everyone. "When they told me I have heart disease. I thought it was impossible since I did not have any risk factors, I'm not overweight, I don't smoke and don’t have any of the typical heart disease risk factors. That's when I decided to educate young women, especially young girls. Our goal is to empower young girls to take their heart health in their hands by providing them with the heart related information, educational tools and support they need to maintain and sustain a heart healthy lifestyle," she says.

Heart N Hands partners with several organizations that share its focus to provide girls with important heart health and wellness information to improve the health of our communities. They have held educational seminars or events with the American Heart Association, WomenHeart (National Coalition of Women with Heart Disease), Girl Scouts, Girls on the Run, Kendra Scott, Links, Inc., college sororities, as well as various other nonprofit organizations. For more information about events, programming and to get involved visit www.heartnhands.org.

Mana raises £1.5M to help inspirational creators teach their skills and share their passion

Mana Learner and Creator

Share your passion with Mana

ex-Apple and ex-SoftBank co-founders of Mana raised £1.5M led by Flash Ventures to help everyone to make a living by sharing their passion.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mana, a London-based pre-seed startup, has successfully raised £1.5 million in funding led by Flash Ventures to create the world’s leading platform for everyone to make a living by sharing their passion.

Mana’s platform allows inspirational creators to teach their skills by building a personal channel to post subscription content, host 1-to-1 sessions and organize live classes. The platform attracts creators across four major categories, including Tech and Startups, Careers, Academics and Lifestyle. To learn more about Mana, visit: https://mana.tech.

James Lo, Co-Founder & CEO of Mana and formerly of SoftBank Vision Fund and McKinsey, commented, “The barriers to entry to teach skills is far too high today – you either need to know how to put together long, well-animated courses on a MOOC platform, or sell your personal brand so well you get millions of views on social media. Many skilled people aren’t necessarily social media marketing experts; but on Mana, they can deliver personalized insights in 1-to-1 or live settings, and get paid more by 100 subscribers than 1 million views.”

Mana already received over 350 applications to join as Creators within the first 3 days of release, including senior executives at late-stage startups, product managers and engineers at megacap tech firms, consultants at top-tier management consultancies, investment bankers at bulge-bracket banks, and many other high-quality applicants.

Mana is also working with nano-influencers with more than 10,000 followers. Bobby Tang, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, and formerly of Apple and Amazon, commented, “Many social media influencers are creating phenomenal learning content, but barely making a living in an ad-based model where they constantly need to ask viewers to Like and Subscribe. Our subscription model empowers these creators to make a living with 100 appreciative fans. Our proprietary recommendation algorithms focus on quality of engagement, rather than absolute popularity, so that users will see relevant and inspirational content. This allows creators with small, but very engaged follower bases to grow and be discovered by new audiences.”

Lo adds, “The beauty of Mana’s model is that it translates across professional areas like career advice to things we do every day, like cooking and fitness classes. On the same platform, you can chat with a top professional about your resume, get personal feedback on your cooking from your favorite foodtuber and correct your push-up form during a live class by the fitness guru you follow.”

Mana will launch a private beta in Q1 2021 and aims to raise a further Seed Round by the end of 2021.

Lo said, “We are incredibly proud of the team we have assembled – from high school drop-outs who taught themselves programming; to engineers who paid their way through university by working night-shifts at supermarkets, we are a team of self-made individuals helping everyone make a living by sharing their passion.”

“On behalf of the LATLC Board of Directors Legacy and Leadership Council, I would like to congratulate and welcome Daniel Kramer into the role as President,” said Gerald Marcus, Past President and LATLC Honorary Board Member. “Since 2015, our organization has benefited greatly from his support.”

Kramer brings almost a decade of previous experience in non-profit boards and fundraising. He was elected to the LATLC’s Board in 2015 and played a critical role in raising funds and advancing its mission. Notably, Kramer spearheaded the charity’s expansion by developing a new trial lawyers’ chapter in Orange County: the Orange County Trial Lawyers’ Charities (OCTLC).

2021 Strategy. Over the next year, the LATLC will focus on:

– Monetary Donations: expand fundraising capacity.
In 2020, LATLC donated over $400,000. Since its inception, LATLC has presented over $5 million in grants, gifts, and goods to 106 partner charities.

– Education: expand college scholarships.
In 2020, LATLC awarded $30,000 in college scholarships to 12 high school seniors based on academic achievement and financial need.

– Expand: Continue expansion efforts.
In 2021, LATLC will officially expand to Orange County, with hopes to expand to the Bay Area by early 2022.

– Youth Sports Programs: expand youth sports program sponsorship.
In 2020, with COVID-19 quarantine orders, LATLC could only sponsor $19,639 and 1000 baseballs. However, since the program began in 2014, 120 youth sports programs received over $164,000.

– Signature Events: expand quantity and capacity of special events. As health restrictions permit, expand LATLC reach and ability to support critical annual activations for events such as:
1) Day of Dignity: provide clothing, towels, showers, toiletry kits, a hot meal, and access to medical, dental, and housing services to those experiencing homelessness.
2) Great Tryke Giveaway: present customized tricycles to special needs children and adults through SoCal Trykers
3) Comfort and Joy: expand partnership with LAPD’s Newton Division to create, identify and distribute holiday gift bags for more than 500 families and individuals with necessities including toilet paper, paper towels, diapers, cooking oil, rice, and children’s toys.

LATLC Mission from 2021 President, Daniel K. Kramer

Lilach Mazor Power, Founder and Managing Director at Giving Tree Dispensary

The only dispensary in Arizona with majority female ownership, Giving Tree is transforming the patient experience with its new, open concept retail space.

We look forward to welcoming new and long time cannabis shoppers to engage, explore, and learn about our trusted products while still providing the same elevated service and patient care.”

— Lilach Mazor Power, Founder and Managing Director at Giving Tree Dispensary

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Giving Tree Dispensary (“Giving Tree”), an Arizona-licensed, vertically integrated seed to sale cannabis company, today announced it is moving to a new retail location on Monday, January 25th, at 701 W. Union Hills Drive in Phoenix. An official Grand Opening with event promotions and giveaways will take place on Friday, February 5th.

The only dispensary in Arizona with majority female ownership, Giving Tree is transforming the patient experience with its new, open concept retail space. Its former dispensary operation will be converted to expand cultivation and triple manufacturing capacity.

“We wanted to create a new kind of shopping experience and versatile retail environment at Giving Tree. We look forward to welcoming new and long time cannabis shoppers to engage, explore, and learn about our trusted products while still providing the same elevated service and patient care,” said Lilach Mazor Power, owner and founder of Giving Tree.

Offering a diverse product portfolio, Giving Tree features its own house cannabis brand as well as its esteemed Kindred and Katatonic product suites. Other top-tier Arizona brands will be available at the new location, including Venom, Baked Bros, Aries, Cresco, and PuraEarth. Renowned for quality service, Giving Tree’s innovative risk-free 30-day product guarantee allows customers to exchange any product if they are not satisfied.

The new 2,400 square-foot dispensary is optimized for product exploration and social engagement, featuring a lounge-like ambience and interactive, shareable elements. Customers may also place orders through touch screens for quick and seamless purchasing.

Dedication to a personalized experience will continue at the new location with the support of the approachable and knowledgeable team.

The company added numerous team members last year, broadening its global staff to nearly 50 individuals.

Since its inception, Giving Tree has stayed true to its name and social responsibility values, donating over $100,000 in funds and volunteer time to the community. Recently, Giving Tree completed a successful fundraiser for the National Brain Tumor Society and built gardens at Streetlight USA, a shelter for young girls rescued from sex-trafficking. This year, Giving Tree plans to provide gardening education at the shelter and a day devoted to harvesting and cooking the vegetables grown.

The launch of the new Giving Tree location follows a milestone election year for the industry with the passage of Prop 207 legalizing recreational marijuana use in Arizona. The state cannabis market is estimated to reach $41.5 billion in 2021, according to research firm New Frontier Data.

Giving Tree is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. For more information visit GivingTreeDispensary.com.

Biobased-Diesel.com Editor Ron Kotrba Partners with National Biodiesel Board on Commemorative Book

Biobased Diesel Daily logo biobased-diesel.com biodiesel renewable diesel SAF

Logo

In partnership with NBB, Kotrba is documenting the stories of early figures who helped shape the multibillion-gallon U.S. biodiesel industry

The work committed up front, from the R&D, vehicle testing and fuel specifications to the boots-on-the-ground state and federal policy efforts, laid the foundation for the industry today.”

— Ron Kotrba, Editor, Biobased Diesel Daily

WARREN, MN, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ron Kotrba, editor and publisher of Biobased Diesel Daily, is partnering with the National Biodiesel Board to write a book celebrating the organization’s 30th anniversary in 2022. To commemorate NBB’s 1992 founding, the organization plans to document stories of individuals and associations instrumental in its development and growth. A coffee table-style book will unfold the story behind the industry’s greatest successes and share narratives of industry influencers.

A small investment in “soy diesel” research by the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council in 1991 is widely viewed as the foundational roots for the U.S. biodiesel industry. Today, the U.S. biodiesel industry employs tens of thousands of people, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improves air quality, adds to U.S. energy security and independence, provides significant value to farmers, and lowers the cost of animal feed for livestock producers.

“We wouldn’t be on the trajectory for six billion gallons by 2030 if it weren’t for the blood, sweat, and tears put in over the years from our founders,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “The stories will help bring to life how a novel idea grew into a carbon-reducing solution for our country. Biodiesel is making a difference now because of what has been accomplished over the last 30 years.”

Kotrba, the former editor in chief of Biodiesel Magazine and longtime biofuels writer and editor, is documenting those stories through interviews with key individuals in the sector.

“When I began covering the biodiesel industry in early 2005, national production was maybe the total of one or two large biodiesel plants today,” Kotrba said. “The work committed up front, from the R&D, vehicle testing and fuel specifications to the boots-on-the-ground state and federal policy efforts, laid the foundation for what the industry looks like today.”

In August 2020, Kotrba founded RonKo Media Productions LLC, which provides professional writing services and is the publishing company for Biobased Diesel Daily, the next-generation source for news, information and perspective on biodiesel, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel.

Kotrba’s Biobased Diesel™ suite of products includes Biobased Diesel Weekly, an e-newsletter sent every Tuesday free of charge to subscribers' inboxes, and Biobased Diesel Biannual, a free print magazine. Subscribe to the weekly e-newsletter and print magazine for free by filling out a short form in the website footer at biobased-diesel.com.

NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel and renewable diesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors. Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel and renewable diesel are better, cleaner fuels that are available now for use in existing diesel engines without modification.
