ToVieFor meets a core need of up to 100 million women in the US. An online location where cost-conscious shoppers can bid for high fashion items through a unique sale. Members can choose the price that they want to pay within a particular time as long as there is inventory.
Discounts can drop as low as 70% off retail during a 10 minute period.
To participate in a sale, it can cost anywhere ranging from .99 to 4.99 depending on the retail value of the item up for sale.
The example in the video displays price dropping. The price will drop by $100.00 in 10 minutes. However, if 500 members are participating in a sale, the price will drop by $250.00 in that same 10 minute time span!
Ladies can finally avoid knock-off handbags and luxury items and men now have a location that they access around holiday and anniversary time. It’s a win-win for all who love fashion delivered by technology.

Quick trip down memory lane as Dux Raymond Sy interviews Microsoft Certified Master Tom Resing and yours truly, Shadeed Eleazer. The interesting thing about this video is that Tom and I were discussing his pursuit of the coveted MCM cert and its great to see that he made the journey and completed his goal.
This video was recorded in New York City, which is always one of my favorite places to deliver presentations.
Just the energy of the city alone is enough to motivate one to greatness.
