Uncategorized
  With a million products that promise to erase bags under the eyes or zap a zit, the average medicine cabinet can get a little crowded. Instead of stocking up on every "promise in a jar," here are the core ingredients that are actually necessary for the ten most common skin conditions (for example, you should know that there are better solutions than lip balm for those cold-weather chapped lips). 1.

Mp3 Players Just Keep Getting Stranger: A Look at the X-Mini Happy Speaker

Uncategorized
  This assignment recently came across my desk, and my head perked up all of a sudden. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of music. I can't get enough of it. I probably spend a good 8 hours a day with a set of headphones on my head (which will be a review for another time...I'm planning on ordering a particular brand of headset, and I'll give you the inside scoop when they arrive). Music transforms me. I own thousands of mp3 files (all purchased / obtained legally, thank you - support your local artist), and music is capable of evoking the most amazing range of emotions inside me. So when I saw the chance to review an mp3 player, I jumped at the chance.…

How I Develop Successful Sales Teams

Uncategorized
  "Why can she go golfing in the middle of the work day?" was a common complaint during the summer months. My sales manager's response to those who complained about my extra perks was very motivational.

Management supported his efforts because his team always made their sales quotas early and they were motivated each month to achieve success. The Sales Management Model "The worker is not the problem. The problem is at the top! Management!" is a well know saying of Dr. Edward Deming the founder of Japanese…

Zoloft Side Effects I Have Experienced

Uncategorized
  Zoloft is a miracle drug to some, offering an escape from anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, depressive disorder, and panic disorder. I have personally been taking Zoloft for ten years. A little longer than the time I have been using my skin care product I bought with the help of vitamin c serum for face reviews. I am very happy with Zoloft, but Zoloft does have side effects.
