More Courier Service Guidance...

One thing that I have learned over the years is that you need to educate yourself before making any business decisions. Choosing the right company for your courier service needs is no exception. As a Houston courier service provider, I unfortunately, run across so many other courier service providers that are inexperienced, unlicensed, uninsured and not prepared to provide the level of service that customers deserve. I run across them because my company has to fix what they have done… Continue

Introduction to Business Coaching

Many people often confuse business consulting with business coaching. What's the difference? Well, a business consultant is someone with industry specific experience that can come into your business and 'fix' whatever challenge you may be facing. This is usually accompanied by a hefty pricetag! Of course, if another challenge arises, you've got to call the consultant back out.

Preserving Flowers

The different methods of preserving flowers follow the same basic principle, to remove moisture slowly while maintaining as much of the original shape and texture as possible.

Air Drying Flowers

Begin air drying your flowers by hanging them upside down in a dark, dry and warm place. Drying flowers may take one to three weeks to complete. Dried flowers can be used to create your own potpourri by gently removing dried petals and adding a few drops of scented oils. Or create your… Continue

The Danger of Uncareful Use of Social Media

It is true that Twitter (or any other social media), used correctly, could advance your business marketing. But I sometimes wonder, has technology nowadays conformed us to be willingly "stalked virtually"?

Mind you, I have a Twitter account myself.

A friend of mine sent me a link to this article. It’s a story about a PR account executive/vice president named James Andrews from Ketchum in Atlanta who flew to Memphis to visit FedEx, one of the agency’s biggest clients. Andrews’… Continue

Giving Back

It's amazing how we let ourselves focus on our own spheres and don't really stop to think of what we have done to help someone else? In the last 24 hrs did you ever stop to think about helping someone?

I have been waking up early, exercising, and then boom! WORK! WORK! WORK! Mind you it's especially hard for me to stop working since I love what I do. I always wished there was more time in one day. It's always GO!GO!GO!, and I have failed to really stop to think about what really… Continue

Dinosaur Extinction Traced to Lack of Web Site

If your business doesn’t have a Web site, or if yours is out-of-date in terms of content, navigation, technology, optimization, look and feel, you’re headed for the fossil bin. You’re a dinosaur.

Think about when you personally need a product or service. Where do you go? The Yellow Pages? That would place you in the Mesozoic Era.
