Opening up today’s show was the team of Klara Cadieux (Owner) and Rick Engels (President) of Cadieux Fashion. Launched by Klara in Europe, this fashion line is expanding into the US market beginning today here in Tampa. Klara began developing her fashion line in 2012 and she describes the product line as upscale with moderate pricing. The same materials that are used in all the name brand designs are the same used in the Cadieux brand. Originally from Croatia, Klara studied and practiced fashion throughout Europe including Dubai, France and Switzerland. Her products have been worn by many celebrities and dignitaries abroad and they hope to soon see their product on the Red Carpet in Hollywood, the pinnacle of a fashion designer’s success.
She was joined in studio by Rick Engels, long-time friend and President of the Cadieux brand. With a strong background in Software Engineering, Rick successfully ran and sold his last company after developing an app for the iPad and has now moved onto the women’s fashion industry, a transition few can claim. He jokes that he much rather enjoys the women’s fashion industry over the software sales business and does not miss the daily grind of the software industry. The product is just launching in the US so keep the name in mind and look for it shortly in stores and online, Cadieux Fashion!
My 2nd guest on the program was Michael McNelis, Options Strategist with key2Options. This online platform gives traders in the options market a tool that allows them to predict the ups and downs of the stock market to make effective decisions. The algorithm, originally created by Ashok, Yarlagadda, the CEO, is based on Finite State Modeling and Michael discusses this briefly but we do not delve too deeply into it as it is a complicated discussion. The application helps stock and options investors determine whether a particular stock is bullish or bearish using a numbering system which he explains as well on the segment. We discuss some of the similar products that have been on the market in recent years as well as some of the basics of put and call options but primarily focus on the system and how it benefits investors. They have webinars and meet up groups to assist and you can learn more about this program at www.key2options.com or reach out to Michael directly for more information at 813-330-0900.
