Regatta Travel Solutions Joins Forces with LeisureLink to Connect Destinations with Vacation Rental Properties


Charlottesville, Virginia (PRWEB) May 12, 2015

Regatta Travel Solutions announced today that they have entered into a strategic partnership with LeisureLink. The new alliance will allow both companies to present a more complete solution to certain Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) that represent both hotels and vacation rentals.

“With so many DMO clients in the Caribbean, we have known for a long time that we need to find a solution in order to work more closely with villa and vacation rental properties,” said Ashwin Kamlani, Founder & CEO of Regatta Travel Solutions. “LeisureLink has the leading private label solution for multi-property villa and vacation rental sites, so it was a natural fit. I have known their leadership team for several years now and like their way of doing business.”

“Our solutions are truly complementary,” said Jim Barsch, COO of LeisureLink “We look forward to collaborating on a variety of projects where the combination of LeisureLink’s villa and vacation rental solution and Regatta’s hotel and attractions solution will create opportunities for DMOs to serve all of their suppliers with best-in-class technology.”

The first joint project will be in Barbados, Regatta’s flagship DMO project. LeisureLink will step in to power the villa and vacation rental component of the project, allowing visitors to VisitBarbados.org and BookBarbadosNow.com to easily book, hotels, villas, vacation rentals, attractions and bundled packages online at a much lower cost to suppliers than other third party travel websites.

Project Juice and Ritual Wellness to Join Forces – Merger to Create West Coast’s Leading Certified Organic Retail Juicery


San Francisco, CA and Orange County, CA (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

In what will be one of the first of its kind in the juice industry, Southern California-based Ritual Wellness and Northern-California-based Project Juice are excited to announce they will be joining forces, merging brands and identities so that they may bring their certified organic, non-GMO, cold-pressed juices, nut mylks, cleanses and plant-based foods to a wider audience across the country.

Uniting the companies under the Project Juice name, each of the new brand’s nine storefronts throughout San Francisco, San Diego and Orange counties will also operate under the Project Juice umbrella. Employees from both companies will operate as a team, uniting Ritual Wellness co-founder Marra St. Clair and her partner Lori Kenyon Farley with Project Juice founders Rachel and Greg Malsin and Devon Briger.

“We are thrilled to unite with Project Juice because it is the best thing for our customers,” St.Clair said. “The merge allows us to be an even better partner to our clients’ in their efforts to live well.”

The merge of the two brands, both leading forces in the juicing field – Ritual Wellness since its inception in March 2010 and Project Juice since late 2012 – with established reputations as being the best tasting, highest quality and most nutritionally-dense juices, results in a strategically curated menu of juices and cleanses, with exciting plans for 2015.

“The cold-pressed juice space has become very fragmented, very quickly, and information sharing is basically non-existent,” said Project Juice co-founder Rachel Malsin. “Through this merger process, we’ve already learned so much about how to be a better company. Ritual Wellness and Project Juice customers have a lot to look forward to.”

Taking advantage of the company’s expanded footprint, with the continued goal of making use of the freshest local and organic ingredients possible, Project Juice will be able to respond to the varying growing seasons up and down the West Coast by dividing sourcing between Northern and Southern California. The business merger immediately multiplies Project Juice’s purchasing power, enabling the company to work directly with more California farms. Purchasing directly from the farm, rather than through distributors, guarantees maximum freshness and quality while helping Project Juice to better support local growers.

Combining businesses also allows the two companies to create more efficient administration and operational systems, ultimately creating more time and bandwidth to focus on product innovations and an improved customer experience.

“Our joint mission is to provide the highest quality organic juice and plant-based foods, and to inspire people to live healthier lives,” Kenyon Farley said.

A revamped Project Juice website will launch in the first quarter, providing a better user experience, while a promotional offer of free shipping, which has long been requested by the company’s nationwide audience, will be the first of many projects under the new merger. Throughout the year, Project Juice will continue to expand with additional retail stores, product innovations and other undisclosed projects.

Inc.com and Americas Mojo Maven Join Forces to Bring The Magic Of Mojo to Small Businesses Everywhere


Asheville, NC (PRWEB) February 05, 2015

You just never know what can happen in a chance meeting. Such a fortuitous event happened last May when Ariana Ayu found herself engaged in a delightful conversation with Jim Ledbetter, Editor of Inc. Magazine and website. They were both attending a dinner at Inc.’s GrowCo Conference in Nashville, TN and found themselves naturally discussing small business and entrepreneurship. Jim Ledbetter, formerly of Reuters (as well as The Village Voice, Time Inc. and Fortune Inc,) became the Editor of Inc. in January of 2014. He asked Ayu if she’d be willing to contribute a few articles to Inc. com, and her column, “Business Mojo” was born.

What is Business Mojo, you ask? Ariana Ayu says, “I always define mojo as the creative power behind success, and that’s true whether referring to a person or a business. Mojo is an internal factor that shines through the outside structure (i.e. a human being or a business entity). As an individual, mojo makes you magnetic, attracting people to you who want what you offer. As a business, mojo does the same; attracting talent as well as customers.”(1)

Inc.com, which turned 35 this year, is one of the leading print and online publications for small businesses and entrepreneurs. It is the perfect fit for Ariana Ayu’s cutting edge business savvy, and an ideal forum for her sassy and topical writing style. Inc. had a lot of peer recognition in 2014, with the American Society of Magazine Editors singling Inc. out with its 2014 National Magazine Award for General Excellence, AdWeek readers picking Inc. as a Readers’ Choice on the AdWeek Hot List, and Ad Age naming Inc. to its sought-after A-List. Inc. was also nominated as a 2015 finalist in two categories of National Magazine Award, including General Excellence. (2)

“People think business is all business, but it’s not. Business is about people,” says Ayu. “When we honor the human factor within business we improve our bottom line, the economy, and the lives of all those we touch.” This applies to large corporations as well as small businesses. Ayu has worked as a high-level executive and board member for a multimillion-dollar consulting company as well as working for and with companies ranging from 1 person to more than 10,000.

“Small businesses are the driving force of the economy and create 70 percent of the jobs in America,” Eric Cantor, R-7th, said in a Nov. 25 news release.(3) Small businesses matter. They are instrumental to the American economy and are the building blocks of the largest corporations. Today, 2 out of 3 new jobs are created by small employers, which employ about 120 million people from the private sector workforce. More than 40% of the high technology workers in America are employed by small firms who also produce 13 times more patents per employee than larger firms. (4)

Ariana Ayu, CEO and founder of several companies, including Ayutopia International, which develops profitable collaborative corporate cultures, personal celebrity brands, and custom branded websites has written a number of informative and entertaining articles for Inc., including “Is Your Management Style Scaring Your Employees?” “The Enormous Cost of Unhappy Employees” and “Business Mojo: 4 Ways to get More Mojo into Your Company Culture.” Her full repertoire of Inc.com articles can be found at http://www.inc.com/author/ariana-ayu.

Inc. is the only major business magazine edited exclusively to guide CEOs and owners of small-to-midsize companies to success. Inc. provides fresh, insightful analyses to give the major players in the business world the tools they need to excel. Each issue, written by managerial gurus and experts, utilizes real life examples of strategies, case studies, and successes and failures edited specifically to illuminate new ways in which its readers can benefit. Big and small organizations alike turn to Inc. to make sense of ever-changing business world. (5)
