Wengie Breakup Advice Vlog Recap

Wengie Breakup Advice Vlog Recap

YouTube beauty blogger Wengie gives viewers advice about dealing with a breakup. She says that studies show that the amount of time it takes to get over someone is half the time of your relationship, she notes that getting over someone is the hardest part of the breakup, especially if you felt ready to marry the person. She says that even when you feel “over” the person, if you were in love you may always have a soft spot for them in your heart. She says the easiest way to reduce these feelings is to eliminate the person from your life. Do not see them or look at their social media because it could negate all the hard work you did to get over them, even after a long time.

Wengie offers her support to her fans watching the video if they are currently going through a breakup. She says that breakups happen for a reason and that you should take your single time to learn to love yourself again so that your next, better partner can love you too. She also notes that often we get attached to our partner and become part of a duo, so we have to learn to be our own person while we are single. Wengie suggests keeping up with your own interests, hobbies, and friends so that you still have something to do if you break up with your partner; if you give those things up for them, you will feel extra betrayed after the breakup.

Finally, she encourages her fans to share their stories with her. She also tells them not to worry if they haven’t yet found “the one.” She also says that she believes that if a relationship is meant to be, it will work out.

Status Labs – How Reputation Management Firms Handle PR Crises

Status Labs – How Reputation Management Firms Handle PR Crises

Status Labs is a well-reputed Austin-based reputation management firm. However, it dealt with a PR crisis of it’s own when a executive stepped outside of the boundaries of his responsibilities and created a national media story. A slow and steady set of changes brought Status Labs back on it’s feet, and the executive in question resigned by unanimous approval from employees. This challenge has given the company a better understanding of what their clients go through, and why their clients decide to come become clients in the first place.

The company operates around the world to ensure that their clients are able to benefit everything in the power to ensure that their customers don’t have to worry about having their reputation online wrecked. Status Labs believes that “the first page of Google search is the new first impression” as most people often look at the first few links online when they are searching for people. This is a very interesting dynamic which represents a major departure from the way things have been done. In the past, one’s first impression was simply what the person deduced about the person they were meeting. Now, first impressions have gotten more complex as a result of the internet.

The company decided that it would be a good idea to focus on charity efforts and volunteering. These charity efforts brought positive light upon Status Labs, and they also decided that it would be a wise idea to treat their employees better. Catered lunches, allowing pets in the office, a stock option plan, and taking employees on company-wide outings ensured that employees were able to view the company in a more positive light. The company is also more careful about whom they hire so that the fiasco with the executive whom caused the PR crisis can be avoided. In 2015, Darius Fisher was recognized as one of the top rising stars in the PR field and currently serves as the president of the company. He has provided PR and reputation management services to brands, athletes, politicians, and executives alike and previously worked as a political consultant.

Accreditation is both voluntary and important for Securus because it means the company has met the required standards such as honor promises to its clients both verbal and written, works hard to build trust with clients through positive track record in the market place, advertise honestly without defamation to others, tell the truth about the products and services, highly responsive professionally and in good faith, and embody integrity in their business dealings, commitments with integrity and marketplace transactions.

 

One of the improvement by Securus which influenced the accreditation is the effort to establish 220 seat-in-house domestic call center in the largest industry. Securus was able to re-define how customer service was handled in conformity with the BBB standards. In fact, the representatives working for Securus are trained with these standards in mind. Their work is to respond to 2.5 million calls every month and a 99% first-call resolution rate.

 

The BBB accreditation confirms that Securus is the leader in providing technology services to many prisons and many other law enforcement agencies in the United States. Securus Technologies has its headquarters located in Dallas, Texas serving over 3,400 law enforcement agencies, public safety agencies and correctional facilities serving over 1.2 million inmates in North America.

Kate Hudson Talks Athleisure Dresses and Performance Swimsuits with Marie Claire

Kate Hudson Talks Athleisure Dresses and Performance Swimsuits with Marie Claire

For those who can’t go out without their activewear, Kate Hudson and Fabletics have a new wardrobe solution. Marie Claire magazine interviewed the Fabletics co-founder about the company’s new line of “athleisure” dresses as well as the new performance wear swimsuits that debuted on April 1.

Source: http://www.marieclaire.com/fashion/news/a19566/kate-hudson-fabletics-interview/

Hudson called the idea of designing athleisure dresses a “natural progression.” After all, it can be difficult to slip into a little black dress for a night on the town when leggings are so much more comfortable.

The dresses are made with the same performance material as the rest of the Fabletics line but are designed so they don’t appear out of place on a date or a night on the town. Hudson said they might not be the outfit for a hike but are made with comfort and mobility in mind.

To add to the comfort, some of the dresses have built-in bras. They also don’t require any Spanx to look great in because the materials naturally tuck in fat just like shapewear.

The line of performance swimsuits allows for even more athleticism, according to Hudson. While exercising in normal bikinis might accidentally leave a woman exposed, the Fabletics swimsuits allow women to run and jump just like they would in other activewear.

Hudson said women should feel comfortable and safe in their performance swimsuits “without compromising a little bit of sexiness and femininity.”

The Fabletics line is very fashionable, but Marie Claire Magazine asked whether activewear could ever be high fashion. Hudson said yes, but it would cost more money. She said that the focus of her company is to motivate people to become fit and active without costing the customer too much money.

The low price of Fabletics activewear is due to the company’s business model. According to their website, Fabletics offers memberships at $49.95 per month. This price gives members access to 50% off of regular pricing on the inventory as well as loyalty points for purchases.

Fabletics was founded in 2013 as a web-based store but now has several brick-and-mortar stores throughout the United States. The company mainly targets women but also sells a men’s fashion line. There is also a children’s line called Fabkids.

Help Keep Your Pets Cool This Summer With These Tips

Help Keep Your Pets Cool This Summer With These Tips

With summer in full swing in the Las Vegas Valley, pet owners need to be aware of how their pets are reacting to the heat. Newly opened air conditioning company in the Las Vegas area, Goettl Air conditioning has provided some tips to make sure that your pet stays safe and cool this summer. Here are some of the tips below.

Tip #1: Pavement Can Be Hot Enough To Burn Your Pet’s Paws

We can walk on asphalt roads, sidewalks and paved trails with no problems because we wear shoes. Our feet won’t feel the heat or in some cases the burn from these surfaces. Pets however don’t wear shoes and often walk barefoot and exposed on surfaces such as roads and sidewalks. In the summer, especially in the heat of the day, these roads and sidewalk surfaces can heat up so much that they can actually burn your pet’s paws. Goettl Air Conditioning recommends that you walk your pet during the early morning, late evening or even nighttime during the summer. The asphalt and pavement will have cooled down and be much safe for your pet to walk on. Alternatively, you can try putting some shoes on your pet. Be prepared for some gazes if you do this however.

Tip #2: Water, Water, And More Water

If you are taking your pet on a long walk in the park or the neighborhood, consider taking some water along. Pets can become dehydrated just like humans do. If you leave your pet alone outside in the yard when you are away from home make sure they have access to plenty of water. Having a shaded spot outside in the yard or a rudimentary structure for your dog to hide from the sun is also a good idea.

Tip #3: Grooming

For pets with thick fur, you may want to consider giving them a nice haircut for the summer. Trim as much hair and fur as you can. This will allow them to better maintain a stable body temperature and improve air circulation. Your pet will not only look fashionable with a new cut, but will end up being cooler as well.

Goettl Air Conditioning Provides Tips for Protecting Pets from the Heat

Goettl Air Conditioning is an air conditioning franchise company that has reopened its doors in Las Vegas, Nevada once again. The company originates from Phoenix, Arizona. It is currently managed by Ken Goodrich, a Las Vegas native who grew up working alongside his father who was an HVAC repairman for Goettl Air Conditioning. Goettl provides repair, installation, estimates and parts replacement for residential and commercial projects. \
