Check out The Ghost...

check out the ghost...

This is a car advertisement from Great Britain. When they finished filming the ad, the film editor noticed something moving along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist. They found out that a person had been killed a year earlier in that exact same spot. The ad was never put on TV because of the unexplained ghostly phenomenon. Watch the front end of the car as it clears the trees in the middle of the screen and you'll see the white mist crossing in front of the car then following it along the road.....Spooky! Is it a ghost, or is it simply mist? You decide. If you listen closely to the ad, you'll even hear the cameraman whispering in the background about it near the end of the commercial.

Happy Halloween from Your Friends at Hair News Network!

Limited-attendance Webinar w/ Neil Ducoff: The "New Normal"

thriving - #1c
An invitation from Strategies' founder/CEO Neil Ducoff:

You are not alone in wondering why the tried-and-true approaches to growing a business are either sputtering or just don't work anymore. The reason is simple: They were designed and well-suited for a different kind of normal, one that died in the final days of 2008.

thriving - #1bIt's time to embrace the "New Normal." So what is this New Normal? At its core, it's driven by three absolutes: Adapt, overcome or die. The New Normal is change on steroids. And while most leaders recognize that the business game is different, they haven't adjusted how they lead, their tactics or their systems.

To help you lead your company at a pace that's greater than the pace of economic change, I've designed an exclusive two-hour "master class" Webinar. This session will be limited to just 20 business leaders, which will provide plenty of opportunity for interaction.

The class will be on Monday, November 21, from 1 to 3 p.m. (Eastern). The cost of $199 will include a recording of the session that you can share with your team and management team.

Here's some of what we'll review: 
  • The six ways the New Normal will continue to make you work harder for less - unless you change now
  • A point-by-point comparison of the New Normal vs. the old normal
  • How to use the New Normal as the catalyst to gain employee support to change behaviors and systems once considered "off limits"
  • Why No-Compromise Leadership is integral to flourish in the
    New Normal
  • What the New Normal business model looks like based on the Four Business Outcomes: productivity, profitability, staff retention and customer loyalty
  • What a continuous adaptive culture looks like and how to achieve it in your business
  • A 90-day leadership game plan for leading in the New Normal 
I hope that you will join me on November 21. Together, we will face the New Normal - and succeed.

No compromise!

P.S. This is the jump-start you need to launch for the holiday season and 2012. The limit of 20 attendees will be strictly adhered to, in order that participants will have ample time for questions. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity!

The pitfalls of building a beautiful spa

Professional Spa News
The pitfalls of building a beautiful spa
Building a new spa or updating an existing one takes planning for the spa to be a beautiful and relaxing place, but more importantly the design has to be effective and practical to use. Since this is not a cheap undertaking you need to look at prices, suppliers and budgets. So, how come many projects are over priced and can’t be finished on time and within budget?

Besides of careful planning you need to consider following issues: what do you offer, how do you operate and manage your spa on a regular basis and how can you implement your plans to improve customer experience and optimise operations. These are only some of the questions you should ask your architects and designers.

The failure of many promising projects is an alarming sign in our industry and one of the reasons for it is the failing communication between spa owner and architect.
