An Often Overlooked Step in Information Product Development

December 29th, 2009

Many experts enhance their product offerings with high quality services. Regardless of what you make available to your market, you need to take one very important step.

You can determine what your market wants by studying your own market, studying your competitors’... Read More

Are you still singing “The Economy is Slow” Blues?

December 29th, 2009

Over the last few days I have had several conversations with friends and clients about their businesses. Many are thrilled with the fact business is picking up while others immediately go into, “The economy is still slow. That\’s why my business isn\’t picking up.” For some, The Economy is Slow song may be one they have been singing for so long they don\’t even realize how often they might be affirming this way of thinking. The fact is, in many industries things are picking up. For some of us, we never felt a dip at all in the last year. Actually, there are some entrepreneurs... Read More

6 Secrets to Relieving Vaginal Dryness During Menopause

December 14th, 2009

Vaginal Dryness happens to many women as they age and reach menopause. With time the mucus membranes within the walls of the vagina begin to get thinner and lose elasticity. Estrogen production in the ovaries is less and may cause thinning of the vaginal lining. In itself this does not normally cause any problem – unless the lining of the vagina becomes inflamed and dry in which case it becomes very painful. Vaginal dryness is medically known as \’atrophic vaginitis,\’ and it sounds like a disease, though it is not. It can be overcome with simple remedies, such as, a good nutritional... Read More

Maybe Scrooge was Right

December 14th, 2009

Thirteen percent. That number should make you pause if you manage staff, lead a group, or own a business. It\’s a number recently released from an on-line survey reported by Reuters. According to Right Management, a subsidiary of Manpower Inc, only thirteen percent of employees surveyed said they “planned to stay in their current positions.” Two-thirds reported they\’re looking to change jobs in 2010, and another twenty-one percent indicated they\’re networking now, just in case. Pent-up frustrations and workplace treatment during the economic downturn were the primary... Read More

Viagra for Women? Could the Little Blue Pill Be Right for You?

December 14th, 2009

Millions of middle-aged men have used Viagra in order to improve erections and enhance their sex lives. Ever since the drug was first released in 1998 there has been talk about the possible benefits for women suffering from sexual dysfunction. Certainly Pfizer (and other pharmaceutical companies) would like to expand their sales to the other half of the human population. Once a prescription drug is approved for at least one indication, physicians are free to prescribe it for any other disorders or symptoms for which they believe it would be effective, a practice called off-label prescribing.... Read More

Preposterous Portions: One Reason for the Obesity Epidemic

December 14th, 2009

We\’ve heard the scary statistics about the expanding waistlines of the American public – a 2009 CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) study reports that a third of adults and 16% of children are obese. Proposed culprits include TV, the Internet, inactivity, viruses, lack of sleep, easy availability of fast food, heavy friends, genetics, side effects of medicine, hormonal issues, air conditioning (it\’s too comfortable inside to go outside), safety concerns that keep people within their homes, companies that manipulate fat, salt, and sugar in foods that make us crave high-calorie... Read More

Ask the (Zen) Organizer tm Newspapers, magazines and the airwaves will be filled this month with ways to save this holiday season.

To cut, or to grow?

December 14th, 2009

“To cut, or to grow?” that is the question…..in considering your hair style (and thereby influence your whole image!). In “Growing Pains” Kennedy Fraser (Vogue, Dec 2009, p174) “recalls the chapters of her life through the cuts that defined her—and the long hair she dreamed of again.” Interestingly in one of the last issues of Vogue I noted a group photo of new models. Almost all (with just a few exceptions) had long flowing tresses. It truly seems a symbol of youth! Never before has short-cropped hair been more a symbol of an older woman. And wearing it... Read More
