EOS Sets New Lip Balm Standards

For the last 100 years, buying lip balm has been pretty boring. You simply scanned the store for a simple tube of Chapstick: “plain” for everyday use and if you’re feeling a little crazy, you’d pick “cherry”. Then 2009 rolled around and a new company called EOS lip balm began selling pastel-colored orbs everywhere you looked.

According to fastcompany.com, EOS lip balm took over shelves at places like Walmart and Target. It got rave reviews from big companies like Cosmo and Allure. Celebrities even endorsed it, like Kim Kardashian, Christina Aguilera, and Miley Cyrus.

The company, Evolution of Smooth, has become one of the hottest products on the market. They have created a $250 million company that quickly became the second best-selling lip balm on eBay, only after Burt Bee’s. They have even beaten out the older companies, Blistex and Chapstick.

EOS currently sells more than 1 million of those cute little orbs every week and their future looks even more promising. This particular market is projected to increase steadily, due to consumers’ desires for organic and natural products. Those are EOS’ specialties.

Co-founders, Sanjiv Mehra, Jonathan Teller, and Craig Dubitsky came together to find their niche in the drugstore beauty aisle. They decided on the lip balm category because they knew that most products in the category were completely undifferentiated from any others. In other words, everything looked the same. Most brands copied each other but were driven solely by cutting company costs and competing with others on the cost. There they found their opportunity.

They started their journey on creating products specifically made for women. They completely rethought the lip balm format, and hired an artist to find them a new shape. In the end, they created a product that catered to all five senses. It felt good to hold it in your hands, the colors were visually fun, the clicking sound was appealing, the smells were magical, and it even tasted wonderful. The price point could compete with other lip balms. Essentially, Evolutionofsmooth.com products were a quick success. They’re not going anywhere anytime soon, either.

The Kabbalah Centre Opens this Ancient Tradition to the World

The ancient religious teaching of the Kabbalah are said to date back to ancient times when some of the best known biblical figures began passing these mystical teachings down through the ages; the tradition of the Kabbalah is said to date back to Adam who passed the teachings on to Abraham, who passed on the words to Moses. Kabbalah has a history that is often difficult to trace as it was left hidden from the public throughout the majority of human history.

 

Even in the 21st century this form of mysticism still retains an air of mystery based upon the fact many of those who learned the teachings during the Middle Ages are said to have been driven mad by their discoveries. Kabbalah is a form of teaching that requires the individual to open up their hearts and minds to receive the ideas being passed onto them; Kabbalah itself translates as “that which is received” and can be seen as being a way of receiving a new way of viewing the world we live in and everything we do. The teaching of Kabbalah was limited by Jewish teachers to men over the age of 40 who were often actively discouraged from the study as many of the teachings still have never been published.

 

The Kabbalah Centre has been one of the main proponents of bringing the teachings into the modern world where people of all genders and ages are given the opportunity to explore this form of mystic teaching. The director and founder of the Kabbalah Centre, Rav Philip Berg and his wife Karen have pushed forward the Kabbalah Centre after its first location in Queens, New York became a major success; the Kabbalah Centre was given religious charity status in Canada in 1988 and used this as the springboard for bringing this religious teaching to the people of the world.

 

In a bid to bring this traditionally Jewish form of teaching to the world the Kabbalah Centre has evolved to allow students from any faith to explore the works. many refer to the Kabbalah Centre teachings as providing a universal wisdom that can be used to expand the understanding of Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and many forms of new age beliefs.

Bury Bad Articles Knows How to Get Your Business Out of a Bind

Building a following online brings with it the culpability of not getting carried away in the clutter, something out of convenience…I call an online reputation management. It brings with it the responsibility to cater and nurture to your audience with a certain level of professionalism.

Creating a reputation based entirely on truth and avoid the clutter is not easily done; you would have to understand the reason you are building a reputation online, to begin with. In a world of loud noises, it is very easy to veer of the tracks and take the bet. By the time you begin to realize you went off tracks, you would have covered a great distance that it would be near impossible to get back and start over…

Bury bad news by simply focusing on truth and value, though that is easily said than done. Focusing on fact affords you the chance to create a reputation only found in people of integrity.

Many in today’s world treat customers as though packages; a package does not speak, let alone think. Thinking and speaking is the distinction between humans, packages, and wild animals. And although animals do have the capability to think, they lack the very attributes necessary for the completion of the puzzle – speaking and voicing concern.

Which is why it best to treat people with the highest level of respect and professionalism in order to create a reputation that is simple yet effective. A good article helps you build a good reputation, although modern man tends assume Mankind is more susceptible to lies. While that may be true, at least in a brief moment, it hurts your brand in the long run.

It therefore is well to work toward building a brand name that will last forever, than cater to a small group of people who are immune to reality. Everyone does have a choice to make; decisions we make in life do have the capacity to build us or break us; focus instead on the positive than the negative.

Building a foundation on the negative does bring with it consequences; negativity is not a position. It is built on uneven grounds, and therefore…unsustainable. While on the one hand, the positive lays comfortably on balanced grounds, which in itself presents you with leverage rarely available to many.

To win the game, one must have leverage; leverage offers you a strong enough position upon which to stand when in competition.

Wirth’s Appointment as Chairman of RASC a Bright Move for RASC

With Andy Wirth’s election as Chairman of Reno- Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation, the future looks bright. Wirth has served as the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings and has been instrumental in promoting the company as a top tourist destination in the world. His services, however, extend beyond the business world. He has been actively involved in environmental and community service, especially around Lake Tahoe. One of Wirth’s key commitments has been to raise funds for the Navy Seal Foundation. Having faced a near fatal accident, Wirth created the “Wounded Warrior Support,” an organization that supports special operations for members of the Navy SEAL Foundation once they return home.

While accepting his appointment as chairperson of the RASC on January 16, 2016, Andy Wirth stated his belief in the opportunity that the area around Lake Tahoe offers to air service providers. He emphasized that providing this service was going to be central to the business activities of the firm. As chairperson of RASC board of trustees, Wirth will be mandated with the task of promoting air service into the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Already equipped with vast experience in development of airports and air service, Andrew Mirth seems ready for the task. Previously, Wirth was instrumental in securing air services to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport with JetBlue service and Alaska Airlines service. The election of two other seasoned members, Kimberlee Tolkien and Andy Chapman, in to the board of trustees should come as a huge boost for Wirth.

Formed in June 2001, RASC has been instrumental in assisting the Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RTIA) to provide other incentives that help attract and maintain air service to the region around Reno Tahoe. The corporation also unites public and private organizations to enhance the Reno-Tahoe area as an attractive tourist destination all year round. Currently, the air service works with airlines to encourage direct flights to Boise, Orange County, and Idaho among other destinations.
