Herborium Group, Inc. (OTC:HBRM) CEO Discusses Future Opportunities in Tech-Driven Natural Wellness and Beauty Sectors

HBRM

Herborium Group, Inc. (HBRN) is a botanical therapeutics® company that addresses dermatological and other health and wellness concerns via its proprietary medicinal products that are supported by science-centered content. In an exclusive interview with the Capital Gains Report, HBRN CEO Dr. Agnes Olszewski discussed the company’s track to take advantage of promising opportunities arising in the natural segment of the wellness industry, particularly as it applies to skincare, and an important boost to this area of the market can get from the application of artificial intelligence. HBRN’s Approach of Integrating Medicine and Beauty The global natural cosmetics market is growing at a fast pace and is projected to reach $79.6 billion by 2033, with an annual growth rate of 5.1%. This rise is driven by the emergence of a new category of advanced, natural ingredient-based products available via conventional retail channels and online retailers, as well as the growing prominence of safer and more efficacious science-based beauty and wellness culture, which fuels the accelerated demand for natural beauty products. Dr. Olszewski said, “One of the most important trends in the healthcare and beauty sectors is the merger of clinical skincare with natural skincare to create safe and validated “hybrid” products that actually work while maintaining their natural ingredient profile.” Herborium’s acne treatment represents such a unique product. AcnEase is a systemic, all botanical ingredient-based, proprietary, clinically tested acne treatment for teen and adult acne, that also improves symptoms of an inflammatory skin condition called rosacea. Dr. Olszewski said, “We are presently working on the second generation of this clinically validated skincare solution that has better consumer characteristics -- broader application and simpler treatment routine -- and improved business profile, such as increased margins. The company is also approaching the most advanced science in clinical skincare - stem cell-based products. We are working to add two highly innovative products in this category to our 2023 and 2024 product portfolios.” The company pursues a cross-sectoral approach, aiming to use clinical testing in order to integrate pharmaceutical and nutraceutical market segments. Exploring the Power of Artificial Intelligence in Natural Skincare Sector Another strength of HBRM has to do with the use of pioneering technology as applied to the development of natural skincare products and a total solution that would address consumer concerns in the skincare sector. On May 11, 2023, the company announced signing a Letter of Intent with Adrecom, a US-based technology and e-commerce company with offices in North Carolina and California, to purchase and further advance AI technology that will power HBRM's natural skin health and wellness platform. It completed the first stage of designing this platform and is currently in the midst of testing and further advancing it. Dr. Olszewski says, “Herborium’s unique approach is the active use of technology in the natural segment of skincare and skin wellness.” The AI platform will deliver streamlined and more precise diagnosis, curated, personalized skincare counseling, products, and other related services such as nutrition and esthetician-provided recommendations. This step positions HBRM as a frontrunner in the novel skincare industry, opening up new ways for innovation and potential revenue streams. “Our AI-based platform offers an integrated, personalized approach to skincare and skin health,” says Dr. Olszewski. “At the moment, an integrated platform for natural skincare and skin wellness does not exist.” As medicine and wellness develop in parallel with advancements in using AI technology to support a personalized approach to treatments and more common wellness and beauty solutions, HBRM is a first mover in this space as it is capable of combining its natural ingredient-based products and relevant, cutting edge content with advanced AI technology. Growth through Partnerships HBRM is currently commercializing its products and has already established a strong presence in the United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe through a network of specialty retailers, distributors, and e-commerce platforms. With a well-established customer base and strong brand recognition, the company plans to establish new sales targets by building curated partnerships with other product originators. “We are presently in advanced talks with two companies—one from the US and a second from South Korea that are well known in the cosmetic and skin wellness industry for high-quality biotechnological applications in skincare,” says Dr. Olszewski. Conclusion Natural ingredients and the potential for an AI-driven personalized approach to skincare mean that Herborium’s products have the potential to gain popularity with consumers quickly. They are capable of connecting medical and beauty applications with a focus on natural ingredients, filling an important gap in the market.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Gastonia, NC Has Grand Opening for New Father-Son Team Tony & David Marder

Minuteman Press International Inc

Tony and David Marder are the new owners of the Minuteman Press franchise in Gastonia, NC. In January of 2023, Tony and David purchased Minuteman Press in Gastonia from retiring owners Pam and Bill Joles, who owned the business for nearly 32 years since July of 1991. On Thursday, May 25, 2023, Tony and David held their official Grand Opening at their shop located at 495 East Long Avenue in Gastonia. The event was sponsored by the Gaston Business Association and had a fiesta theme that included margaritas, festive appetizers, a food truck, and a mariachi band. There were also plenty of raffles as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony that served as a celebration of Tony and David’s new venture while Pam and Bill were also in attendance to help pass the torch. In the below interview, Tony shares how he and David originally came into contact with Pam and Bill, and how that relationship grew to the point of purchasing the business. Tony also shares how he’s been building his business since the purchase and why print is so vital today. You purchased the business after working in the shop for a couple of years. What were your roles/experiences as employees and what drove you to buy the business? Tony Marder: “Interestingly, even before working in the shop, Pam and Bill Joles were previous coaching clients. We met via our local BNI and Chamber memberships. At the time, I focused my business coaching with family-owned businesses and Pam and Bill engaged me to assist. I noticed how they were avid readers and spent focused time on goal-setting and systemization. Just before and during the pandemic closures, I asked if they needed someone very part time for deliveries or light finishing work to fill some of my open schedule. At some point in early 2021, I asked Bill ‘how he intended to land this thing’ and he said, “Why? You want to buy a business?” My answer was, “Absolutely not!” But an hour later I mentioned that I felt this may be a good fit for me and my son David, whom I know to be very adept and resourceful with machines and computers and technology in general. David joined the team as print production specialist in May of 2021 specifically to learn the finishing work. Having a bit of a graphics background didn’t hurt either and he quickly added pre-print typesetting and other aspects of pre-print work to his overview. Knowing this was a good fit and having almost two years of on-the-Job experience with Pam and Bill made it a much easier decision for us to move forward.” What has the support from Minuteman Press International been like for you? Tony Marder: “Having experience with franchise teams, I expected the support system to be there. I was especially impressed with the FLEX software and the strength of the training and process protocols. The local team made the transition easy and the Home Office training team is concise and thorough. Every call or need is quickly handled and everyone jumps in to help with urgency as needed.” How do you describe your business and capabilities to potential clients? Tony Marder: “We can produce anything that can be printed or find someone in our organization that can; we will produce and deliver quickly high quality work that helps them run or grow their business or organization.” What are the high-demand products and key growth areas? Tony Marder: “Our most requested items are business cards, forms, labels, stickers, letterhead and envelopes, booklets, manuals, newsletters and mailings. We would like to feature more mailings, interior signage, posters, decals and graphic design.” What are some of the key ways you’ve grown your business since taking over in January of 2023? Tony Marder: “Relationship marketing via phone and face to face direct marketing to existing and past clients, as well as SEO/SEM Marketing, active membership in the local chamber and Rotary. Planning now for future postcard mailings featuring postcard mailing as well as special promotions.” How would you best describe your community? Tony Marder: “We have a small but dedicated and loyal community. We are a volunteer and philanthropic community of diverse folks raising families and enjoying our corner of the world. We have a lot of natural resources that draws a wide range of individuals to the area spanning entrepreneurs, professionals, service-related businesses and manufacturers. We enjoy the closeness of the Charlotte, NC Metro area without the cumbersome things that make larger cities less attractive. Around here we say that ‘we don’t tell anybody about it, but if they find it on their own then it’s perfectly okay with us.’” Why do you think printing remains so vital to businesses today? Tony Marder: “Print is everywhere. I can’t go anywhere without seeing print in action. Every business or organization uses print at some level; either to run or grow their business. I feel email and social media marketing has its place but lacks a personal touch or relationship that could be developed. Print solidifies other marketing sources and cements brand recognition. People read, so giving them something to read is the best way to keep them engaged.” What are the biggest rewards of owning your business? Tony Marder: “This is a cashflow business with a lot of upside potential. Cash is certainly king when it comes to owning your business and this one is no different. Personally, I’m in it to help my son secure a future and continue to provide inspiration for the team. I’d like to see us increase what we can give back to our community and find more ways to engage the public.” What advice would you give to other business owners right now? Tony Marder: “Attract and hire people smarter than you, then get out of their way and give them room to shine. Find a mentor who has documented experience with the legal, financial and accounting arenas and do not resist being pushed closer to the fire. Get in there and get it done.” For more information about Minuteman Press in Gastonia, NC, visit https://minuteman.com/us/locations/nc/gastonia/ Learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities at https://minutemanpressfranchise.com Contact Details Minuteman Press International Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 cbiscuiti@mpihq.com Company Website https://minutemanpressfranchise.com

Don’t Get Scammed: Tips for Avoiding Fraud After a Natural Disaster

YourUpdateTV

Click to view video accompanying this release: https://youtu.be/YCGvYBaBZes With hurricane and wildfire seasons on the horizon in many parts of the country, damage and loss to homes from these natural disasters can be unavoidable. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) is warning those living in areas that could suffer from a natural catastrophe to not only be prepared for the disaster, but to be on guard for fraudulent contractors and vendors who take advantage of victims in the aftermath. Oftentimes, dishonest contractors target neighborhoods affected by disasters and make unsolicited stops at residential properties. They will take homeowners’ money, often overcharge them, and do shoddy or no work at all, promising that the insurance company will pay for it all. Insurance fraud related to natural disasters costs billions of dollars every year, which results in higher premiums for policyholders. In some cases, individual homeowners are on the hook for up to tens of thousands of dollars they may not be able to recover. On Tuesday, May 23rd, NICB President & CEO David J. Glawe conducted a nationwide media tour with TV stations across the country to discuss how to avoid home repair fraud after a natural disaster and many other consumer-friendly topics, as part of the organization’s third annual Contractor Fraud Awareness Week. During the media tour interviews, Glawe discussed: The steps homeowners can and should take prior to a natural disaster and how preparation can help reduce chances of becoming a victim of fraud; The kind of fraud that takes place following disasters while victims are trying to put their homes and lives back together; The best practices for disaster victims when hiring contractors or vendors and tips for avoiding dishonest contractors; The most common methods fraudulent contractors try to scam disaster victims; and The resources available to help homeowners and other disaster victims dishonest contractors or report fraud when they encounter it.
