In the modern entertainment era, Ryan Seacrest is one of the most recognizable figures in the industry. Between his various ventures such as American Idol, On Air with Ryan, and Live with Kelly and Ryan, he is actively engaging with the U.S. audience. At the same time, he is involved with the fashion industry through Ryan Seacrest Distinction and Polish. Lastly, he gives back some his wealth to those less fortunate through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. However, despite his positive public image, he reveals another side of himself during a recent New York Times article.
A typical day for producer Ryan Seacrest begins at the crack of dawn at 6am with some moisturizer, and a check of the forecast. He will then go downstairs and enjoy his favorite drink before heading out. As he got into his 30s, he began to realize the importance of working out daily. On an average day, he would hit up the gym during work hours. Even during a vacation, he would frequently bring a trainer along to ensure he kept his workout pace.
The most essential quality to his kind of work is being able to manage time. He has trained himself to focus on long term in the afternoon and devote his mornings to forward thinking tasks. Ryan Seacrest also finds it relaxing to put away the phone for a period of time. On the side, he maintains a vegan diet and splurges when appropriate. The entertainment industry can be draining, but he has found a way to balance professional and personal time.
At the end of the day, Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) truly enjoys his job from the bottom of his heart. American Idol was recently revived by ABC, which has put him back in the public spotlight. He learned the ways of being a top-notch host from Dick Clark. He was one of America’s great entertainment figures, and Ryan Seacrest has done an amazing job of filling that role for the current generation.

With the success that EOS Lip Balm has experienced a constant inquiry is how it became a global brand. The amount of women that don’t purchase lip balm products is a rather small percentage of the female population. This statistic kind of surprised EOS developers Jonathan Teller and Sanjiv Mehra. their entire vision was to give women an option that is amusing and appealing without sacrificing the aspect of being non-harmful to the lips. This collection of principles gave birth to the innovative beauty company EOS. The company known for its colorful containers of lip balm that present in a variety of different flavors. Both founders knew that in order for their company to be successful thay had to tap into what women want in a lip care and lip balm product. They soon realized that their were very few innovative companies in the industry. Most products looked like they were manufactured by a single company. Not to mention, despite popular belief most lip balm products aren’t geared specifically for women which is what Jonathan and Sanjiv wanted to introduced to the masses.
It took the business partners longer than they expected to design the shape of EOS lip balms and other products that would be distributed via the company. They chose to be patient and wait until they had designed a concept with women in mind to start offering products. The design they eventually settled on was a container shaped like an egg. this makes the container unlike any other lip balm container in the world which in turn shows the uniqueness of the company. This has made it a household name throughout the world in the industry. Many companies, despite the industry, can learn a thing or two from EOS and its founders Jonathan Teller and Sanjiv Mehra.

Sometimes individuals can pick up habits that take complete control of their lives. The path to restoring your life after letting something like addiction control your life can be a tough one. Victoria Doramus is an individual who has gone through many challenges to recover from addiction. She realized that not only did she have to change her life around, but she felt obligated to help others as well. She believes that animals, as well as helping humans, is important. She chose to back Best Friends Animal Support, an animal shelter that is trying to end the vicious practice of killing unwanted cats and dogs that are taken to typical animal shelters.
In the 1980s there was even more neglect for many unwanted animals in shelters across the United States. It was common to immediate kill cats and dogs that no one wanted to adopt. Millions of cats and dogs were killed each year. This caused a group of friends to band together to take in many of these neglected animals and provide a safe place to care for them. The animals that were unable to find a home were not killed and were able to live the rest of their lives in the safety of the shelter, however, most of the animals were fortunate enough to eventually be paired with a kind and loving family. The shelter was then called Best Friends and it operates today as a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving as many animals as possible
Victoria Doramus (@victoriadoramus) believes it has been therapeutic for her to support this animal shelter because its core principle is to value all animals, even the ones that society has seemed to forget about. The shelter relies on donations from people to operate and they can assist as many as 1,600 animals at any given time and provide them with the medical needs, food, and the love each animal needs.
