I had received a few phone calls on my phone that showed the name Perksconnect. I had no idea who or what this was, but it showed up on the call log, so I went to check my messages. The message I was left excited me, because the caller stated that she was looking for a massage therapist to take care of employees from two major companies in my area: Winn Dixie and Holy Cross Hospital. In the Voodoo Pantheon, there is an important group of female loa (goddesses) whose first name is Erzulie. While all of them share in their role as Goddess of love, art, and sex, each has additional areas of life which is theirs to defend and assist. Erzulie is three in aspect: she can be Erzulie Freda, a virgin goddess likened to the Virgin Mary; Erzulie Dantor, loa of jealousy and passion; or La Siren, a personification of the sea and goddess of motherhood. As Freda, her color is pink, her animal a white dove. As Dantor, her colors are blue and gold. She is associated with the Lukumi Orisha Oshun, and sometimes Chango (as Erzulie Dantor).

The Business Legends are movers of the industry. They have made revolutionary transformations to the way we live, to how we approach life, and to how we breakthrough beyond what was commonly known as impossible. As for the Franchise Oversight Board, Cuomo had initially wanted the FOB to have the power to impound NYRA funds – including purse money – and to appoint an outside financial adviser if the FOB found that NYRA’s finances were at significant risk.” In the compromise version, the draconian impounding sanction would require a unanimous vote by the FOB, including the votes of FOB members appointed by the legislature. That may satisfy some Albany politicians’ desire for a slice of the power pie, but it doesn’t do much to calm NYRA’s and horse owners’ fears. Those fears were already high, given Cuomo’s statements earlier this year about reneging on the contractual deal that gave NYRA and the horsemen’s purse account a share of the enormous profits from the slot machine palace at Aqueduct.

It all started right here for me, I was graduating High School with a low GPA, and no talk of going off to College. Things really weren’t looking so bright for me on the outside at age 17. I struggled all through school, mainly because of my lack of focus, and drive. I never strived to go to College, even since the beginning of high school, with no real solid reasoning. Maybe I didn’t have enough outside influence, or someone pushing me to go to school after high school was finished, but for whatever reason, I never had planned for it. So in the end it made it that much harder for me just to graduate, because of my lack of drive. I signed up as a consultant mainly for the discount and the books. Realy there is nothing to lose.

Putting aside their egos, The Wells Fargo team pulled the plug on the vast majority of its international operations, accepting the truth that it could not be better than Citicorp in global banking. Wells Fargo then turned its attention to what it could be the best in the world at: running a bank like a business, with a focus on the western United States. That’s it.

Silent auctions are a great way to raise additional funds at any event. Putting together the right basket makes all the difference. Themed baskets are the best way to accomplish this. While individual gift certificates for restaurants and local businesses are great, they may only appeal to a few individuals at the event. Combine them with other items to make the basket stand out and appeal to more bidders. RM200 million from the Working Capital Guarantee Scheme Fund specifically allocated to start-ups.

We all know that we dress one way for the beach, another way for church, funerals, weddings, etc. One would hope that as a woman matures, so does her sense of style. Gracefully say good-bye to the micro minis you wore at 16, skimpy half tops and very low rise pants that expose your midriff, seductive plunging necklines and sausage tight clothing that desperately cling to the bygone days of your youth.

Traditional advertising costs money, and isn’t very effective in many circumstances. What about word of mouth advertising for your business? It’s free, and it’s the most effective type of marketing. When you buy something do you head to YouTube to research commercials, or do you head online to read reviews, or maybe call a friend or family member to ask their opinion of a local plumber? You use word of mouth, and you trust it, whether you realize it or not!
