Guide To Choosing A Great Appliance Repair Company

Appliances make people’s lifestyle easy. However, they need repair when they break down. It is important to hire an experienced and reliable appliance repair firm to make sure that the professionals fix your home appliance properly. Home owners often find it difficult to choose a good firm. There are many firms out there that offer repair services, but most of them do not have skilled professionals. Many of them overcharge, taking advantage of the home owner’s helpless situation. With some valuable advice, people can find the right appliance repair company.

Here are some tips to help you hire the right company to repair your home appliances:

Get referrals

An effective way to find a repair company is to get referrals from friends and acquaintances. When someone you are familiar with, recommends a firm from which he received satisfactory services in terms of professionalism, price and repair services, you know that it is a good company to work for you. If your oven has a problem, ask for more and more referrals of oven repairs companies from your close ones and contact the companies.

Consider insurance and license

You will come across many advertisements of repair firms. Look for the ones that say “Licensed and Insured”. Do not go for firms without insurance and license. Make sure that the firm’s insurance is current and it has a valid license number.

Check out the time for which the company is working

Before hiring a company, find out the time for which it is operating in its place with the same name. Prefer a company more that has a long history in its locality, than a startup that has no history in that region.

Check out internet directors

Check out the prominent business directories in the internet and see whether the firm’s name is present in them or not. Check directories like yahoo local, Google maps, superpages.com and yellowpages.com. For example, if your washing machine has some problem, choose a washing machine repairs firm whose name is present in the directories.

Consider the firm’s advertising

Check out if the company conducts large-scale advertising. If yes, it is likely to spend a huge amount of money in advertising. Such companies need to get this money from somewhere, and most of them get it from the customers by charging a higher fee. Avoid such firms.

Compare a technician from a small family owned business with that of a large company

A local business wants to keep up his reputation in its locality. A technician from such a firm is likely you offer you quality services. On the other hand, a technician from a big national chain may not offer you satisfactory services.

Talk to the technician

If you are considering a firm, enquire about the technician it is sending you. Talk to the technician about the issues in your appliance. If your dishwasher has some problem, ask the technician about his experience in dishwasher repairs service. Explain the problems in the dishwasher and see if the technician is able to tell you about the repair it needs.

With these tips, you can find a good home appliance repair company. A good firm will not only repair the problems in your appliances, but will also offer a great customer service.

Bull Market Flashback to 1982

On August 19, 1986, I landed at the JFK airport, and my dad's old college classmate, James, picked me up. After a few days of staying with him and his family, he dropped me off at college in Montclair, New Jersey.

Coming to the United States was a new beginning for me. Going to college was like diving into a whole new world, where I had to figure out something new each and every day. It forced me to work out how things worked bit by bit.

And so many things that are so obvious today … were so hard to figure out on my own back then. For example, I did not know how to dress for cold weather, and, as a result, I was cold almost all the time in the winter.

What's going on in the stock market reminds me of that time, because today most people are completely baffled. Without you have experience and knowledge of how markets work, you're going to make all the wrong decisions.

And you could end up missing out on something that could absolutely change your life in 2017 …

This critical thing is a bull market in stocks.

And I'm not just talking about a major new bull market in stocks that is going to propel the Dow Jones Industrial Average to 50,000 … and then beyond.

I believe that when this bull market ends, the Dow could easily be 100,000.

I know that many of you think that this looks crazy. However, think back to 1982, which was the beginning of the last major bull market in stocks. People were pessimistic about the future of our country.

One easy way to measure the negative mood of that time period is to look at one of the most popular magazines back then: Time .

The September 6, 1982 issue of Time featured the new bull market that was just beginning.

Inside the issue were doubts that are similar to the ones that people have today about the stock market:

No one predicted it. No one can explain it. No one dreamed that it could keep going day after day after day. But last week Wall Street continued on one of the most unbelievable stock-trading binges in financial history … The frenzy has broken records, and then broken them again … Is this a suckers' rally or the beginning of a sustained bull market ? Why has the momentum been so strong when the prospects for economic recovery are so uncertain?

Now, when you go back to 1982, you'll find two incredible similarities to 2017.

First, there was an incredible technology – the personal computer was just beginning to emerge as an intense economic force in our economy.

Second, you had the coming of age of the baby-boomer generation, the oldest of what had just turned 34.

And today, we have the same two things going on.

First, we have this incredible technological development – the Internet of Things is beginning to revolutionize how our world works in everything from our roads to cars to our health and every part of our lives.

Second, we have the coming of age of the millennial generation – the largest generation in US history at 92 million strong.

An Astonishing Bull Market Rally

The Dow Jones Industrial Average soared from 770 in August 1982 up to 11,750 in January 2000 – a gain of 1,426%.

In other words, if you put $ 10,000 into the Dow index at the beginning of this bull market and simply held, you've $ 14.2 million by its end. Incredible, phenomenal, astonishing gains purely through buying at the beginning of the bull market!

Now, I understand that many of you might be skeptical of what I've just told you.

However, I've spent a decade researching bull and bear markets through history. And this combination of a major technological change and a new generation coming of age is as close as you are going to get to a sure thing in terms of a formula for predicting a major new bull market. And it's one that I'm staking my credibility and reputation on.

You could also buy a focused exchange-traded fund (ETF), such as the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE: DIA) , to benefit from this major new bull market.

However, if you want to make life-changing gains that can give you financial freedom, you have to find single stocks with the potential to go up 300%, 500%, 1,000% or even more. This is the focus of a new service my publisher is launching early next year. Keep checking back here if you are the type of investor who wants these kinds of gains.

These kinds of gains may seem unimaginable today, but just remember that in the last major bull market we had incredible winners such as Home Depot that went from $ 0.15 a share to $ 52 – a gain of 34,567%. There are going to be astonishing winners just like Home Depot coming in the years ahead.

How Many Bug Parts Are in Your Ketchup?

According to the Food and Drug Administration and their guidelines to our food growers, there are probably quite a few insects in your ketchup, and other foods you eat. Tomato worms, flys, beetles, spiders and rat hair are just a few ‘added ingredients’ that you will consume. In fact, it’s guesstimated that the average American eats one to two pounds of bug parts each year, without even knowing it. Of course, there is a simple explanation for this: despite the worlds best pest control regulations and policies, there is no way our growers can keep all bugs out of our food. So the FDA allows a certain amount of bug parts and rat hair into our food supply.

Bug parts are a natural part of any harvest

When corn, wheat, vegetables and fruit are harvested, the bugs who happen to be in the field become a natural part of the process. Plus, insects and critters (like rats) find access to stored, harvested food and infest that, too. You can easily understand this if you’ve ever worked your own garden. Despite spraying with the right dose of Ortho, you still find earwigs in your lettuce, flys around your strawberries and tomato worms on your ‘maters’. It’s impossible to keep the little buggers out. So you can easily see how this problem would magnify for our food growers (who do an awesome job for us, by the way).

As far as controlling bug parts in our foods, our food growers and the FDA agree that more pesticides are not a valid option. They believe that it’s reasonable to accept more “natural contaminants’ rather than increase the amount of pesticides. And they’re right. Striving for a balanced bug control policy is their best responsible option, so that’s what they do. Which means you and I are gonna’ eat a couple pounds of bugs a year. Hey, it’s added protein, right?

What bug parts are allowed?

Now, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has created grading standards which protect Americans from bad agriculture. Growers must follow these standards, which set legal limits for spoilage and natural contaminants. Working with the USDA, the FDA has created the ‘Food Defect Action Level’ which lists acceptable levels of contaminant for the harvest of different foods. Now, don’t get to squeamish here, but these bug parts include maggots, insect fragments, mold, rat hair, mammalian feces and squashed bugs. Hmmm… wonder how many spiders are in a can of spinach?

So, what’s in what? For a full listing, you can check out the ‘Food Defect Action Level’, but here are some highlights:

* chocolate – 60 insect fragments per 100 grams, 1 or more rodent hairs per 100 grams.

* macaroni – 225 insect fragments per 225 grams, and/or 4.5 rodent hairs per 225 grams.

* popcorn – 2 rodent hairs per pound, and/or 20 or more gnawed grains per pound

* peanut butter – 30 insect fragments per 100 grams, and/or 1 rodent hair per 100 grams

* coffee – up to 10% of the beans can be infested. (doesn’t say with what)

* potato chips – up to 6% of potatoes may contain rot.

Of course, these are just a few out of a long and extensive bug parts list. But it’s an eye-opener into the food gathering process, and the balanced problem-solving approach employed by our food growers and the FDA. Food is harvested for the masses in the best, most responsible way. Unfortunately, bugs are always going to be a natural nuisance and an unwitting participant in our diets. Hey, no process is perfect. Please pass the ketchup.

Scalp Trading – Reducing Risk With Shorter Time Frames

Traders use various methods to trade the equity markets depending mostly on their personalities and risk tolerance. Although when most people think about trading stocks or futures, day trading is usually the method that comes to mind. However, this method requires longer holding periods leading to increased risk. Scalp trading is a technique utilized to reduce risk while profiting from the financial markets.

Anytime a position is opened in the market, the clock begins to tick and with each tick comes added risk since your position is subject to market forces. In order to reduce market exposure and better manage risk, we need to decrease the time frame of holding open positions. Scalp trading is custom made just for this purpose. Allow you to profit as a trader and cutting risk.

This form of trading can be used employing whatever type of system you are most comfortable with such as traditional candlestick charting formulas, crossovers, moving averages or pivot points to name just a few. Whichever tools you choose to employ when scalping the equity markets, the rules remain the same. Always obey your stop loss and exit quickly once your stop is reached – no exceptions. Most of all remember you are not swinging for the fences trying for a homerun on each trade. Scalping is all about small profits and managing risk.

Many experienced traders employ this type of trading using their home computers as well as professionals on the floor of the major changes. Some veterans forego complex market systems and only only on a time and sales screen executing orders when certain levels are reached within the market. Quickly entering and exiting, banking small profits under the radar. By reducing the amount of time your positions are exposed to the market using scalp trading methods, you can greatly reduce your losses keep risk levels in check.

How to Become More Innovative

Can you be more innovative? To be honest, I don’t know. I think 40 percent of the population can never be good at innovating, regardless what they do. The 10% population are born to innovate. They always knew what they want to do and how they can achieve it.

The rest of 50 percent could learn to be good at innovating if they can persuade their brain to ignite their light in the dark, rather than waiting to be rescued by others.

Innovation is not only about technology. You can innovate in any field of work or every aspect of your lifestyle. For example, Facebook and Google treat their employees better than any other company. Management invented a unique way to motivate employees.

So how to become more innovative – Here is how

Observe and ask questions

Make this a habit. Whenever you discover something new, observe and answer three questions.

  • Why would anybody use or buy this service/product?
  • Would you ever purchase this service/product? And why
  • How can improve it?

By answering these questions, you are developing your mind to be more innovative. Don’t be afraid to sound stupid when you answer. You will learn along the way.

Be critical when answering these.

Aim to solve problems

The invention is useless if it cannot solve problems. Every invention in history had a purpose, a way to solve problems.

How to find problems?

  • Talk to people
  • Think about different ways to make life easier
  • Research failed projects and the intention behind it

Once your mind is set to solve problems then you will start generating quality and new ideas. This exercise will make you more innovative.

Think about problems you tackle every day.

List 10 ideas every day

I list ten ideas every morning because that’s when my brain can unleash its full power. You should do it at the time best suits you.

Here is a trick: Don’t think you can’t do it, Just do it. Grab a pen and paper, and start writing your ideas.

It can be anything you like or want to change such as:

  • How to make life easier
  • How to sell more products
  • How to improve business contacts
  • How to improve SMEs profit
  • How to improve health with little spending on personal coaching

List all the ideas you can think of even it has been invented. You might want to improve on an exciting idea.

Let’s do the maths ten ideas a day for the whole year

10×365 = 3,650 ideas a year

If you have over 3,000 bad ideas, 500 ideas are already out there you still have over 100 ideas to choose from.

You only need one idea to take you where you want to be.

Change your attitude

If you want to become an innovator you need to change your attitude.

STOP saying you “can’t”

START saying “can if”

These words should eliminate from your brain if you want to think and become an innovator.

  • “I can’t do it”
  • “It won’t work”
  • “I am not sure”
  • “He/She can do better than me”

When you have a problem or can’t understand things then it is easier to walk. Next when you have a problem or can’t understand do things differently.

  • Start mind mapping on how to solve
  • Learn in a different way
  • Ask for help

From today start to sentences like “I can if… ” rather “I can’t because… “

Take action

You can read thousands of articles, read many books, ask for advice but it will not happen until you take an action.

How many time have you decided to lose weight, read articles about losing weight, asked for advice, and joined the gym.

After one month you did not lose any weight, why? Because you had the knowledge but you never put into action.

Once you have decided it do something, even if you die doing it, it should be fine with you.

Innovators take action. They are committed to their work, ideas, and will stand by it even if they die.

Simply because they believe they can do it.

“Whatever your mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve regardless of how many times you may have failed in the past.” By Napoleon Hill.

Safe Keeping Receipt (SKR) – Collateral For Alternative Financing

Safe Keeping Receipt’s, or SKR’s, are bank instruments that are on the rise as collateral for alternative financing. A SKR is a financial instrument that is issued by a safe keeping facility, bank or storage house. In storage, assets or other valuables are in a safe, secured and protected area. The issuer of the SKR takes the responsibility of being the legally responsible custodian. Check with your institution or safe keeping storage facility as some require fees for these services.

Examples of asset skr’s that can be monetized:

• Fur SKR

• Collectible Art SKR

• Gold SKR

• Above Ground Assets SKR

• Commercial Property SKR

• Antiques SKR

• Valuable Documents SKR

• Precious Metals or Gems SKR

The issuer of the SKR is not the legal owner and therefore, must return the asset to the owner upon request. Who can obtain an SKR? Individuals, corporations, companies, organizations and trusts to name a few. The owner of an SKR may monetize this instrument much like an SBLC, LC, Bond or BG and use these funds as an alternative funding source for projects. Most issued SKR are capable of SWIFT transfers however, some may require an additional MT 760 simultaneous to the transfer of funds in the transaction.

Monetizing and SKR is the process of converting the financial instrument into a legal tender transaction. Depending upon the monetizing bank, certain additional conditions may apply. For instance, is the asset free and clear, meaning; is the title free and clear listed on the SKR? Aside from the validity of the SKR, free title is the single most important aspect of monetizing. The next important aspect is the capability of a SWIFT MT 760. Once monetized usually for a term of 1 year and 1 day unless otherwise agreed upon, the safe keeping receipt is then completed to the originating issuer.

With these very crucial points in place, monetizing your safe keeping receipt can be a safe transaction because in most circumstances, you don’t move your asset or give up control. Any fees associated with monetizing your SKR should be paid out of proceeds and not upfront. For many reasons, you should never make arrangement to SWIFT or transfer your SKR to any one or company without first having a contract in place or knowing the company you are dealing with. Monetizing your SKR can be a solution to alternative conventional financing.

Can We Afford to Miss Customer Experience?

Organizations today seem partly unable to overcome their hesitation to adοpt a CX strategy, stating they cannot afford CX.

We experience a most technologically evolving environment where the balance between digital and physical services tend to change constantly. Google brings to the discussion the so called life moments instead of the classic definition of needs as we traditionally know them. Disney Institute offers creative solutions on delivering exceptional customer experiences based on storytelling. Most of the things we have been taught about marketing or management have been shaped into a different form.

Everything can be easily replicated. A thousand times we saw brand new products or services introduced to the market from an organization and right after from another. What it’s proved to be hardly replicable is the entire experience a customer has from an organization. And what is the entire experience? It is the sum of interactions between customer and business through all available channels (digital/physical). This is one of the reasons why Omni channel and seamless transition is so much talked about between UX experts.

The truth is that adapting such a strategy would mean a radical change inside the organization or even disrupt industry. It means change mind set, adapt technologies and methodologies like Agile and Lean and of course User Experience which could really work as pillars to customer experience edifice.

But there are alternatives and examples to confirm that you can start the implementation in stages.

As people make the difference, organizations can begin with them. Key skills for people working in Customer Experience is creativity and storytelling. Those people need space and authority to act as ambassadors, to work with teams and start spreading the “virus” of customer experience, because this is what it is. Once you are “infected” you cannot be healed. When you learn how to take a mile in your customer shoes you cannot go back and even further when you start seeing results.

Of course the journey of customer experience doesn’t end there. There are efforts to be put on IT and new methodologies but… it’s just a start in an endless learning process. A process that will make each one of the participants much more rich in experiences and feelings that inevitably will change their point of view.

Instead of asking: “Can we afford Customer Experience?” maybe we should be asking “Can we afford to miss Customer Experience?”

Is Your Heart Committed? Is His?

Women, in particular, are looking for commitment. Hollywood, the media, and dating websites all focus on getting a marriage proposal. The art of seduction pre-dates expert Cleopatra. Dozens of books have been written about getting an unavailable man to say, "I do." For six years, Carrie Bradshaw of "Sex in the City" tried to get Mr. Big to commit.

But is there a commitment of the heart? It's one thing to get married, it's another to have a deep emotional connection. Both men and women often create obstacles to getting the love they want. They may avoid inconvenience with time spent at work, watching television, engaging in hobbies or sports. Addiction by either spouse blocks intimacy. Women complain their husbands spend too much time on the computer or watching sports. Yet, women may spend time cleaning, volunteering, or criticizing their husbands or boyfriends or be over-emotionally involved with their children. To be clear, I'm not talking about the demands of raising young children or the necessity of working two jobs to pay the bills. Stress makes intimate harder, but does not need to eliminate it, unless it's an excuse.

Fear of discomfort may show up in the bedroom. One man complained about his wife's coldness. He had an affair, only to discover that he was now impotent with his new lover. As walls build, the lack of communication usually will ever affect sexual intrusion.

Not infrequently, one spouse is unconsciously married to someone else. In one marriage, the husband's heart was still committed to his late wife. It was as if her ghost slept between them. In another, the husband cheated, but it was not the lovers who had stolen his heart – it was his mother! In another case, the husband was unfaithful, but the real cause of their marital problems lay in the wife's emotional marriage to her older brother, who died when she was a child. It sometimes happens with twins who are so close that no one else can share that intimate. It also can be a problem in step-families. One single mom found fault with every boyfriend, but she was not ready for romance. She did not realize her overly-involvement with her son was the problem. Similarly, in a marriage one parent may avoid intimacy by using a child of the opposite sex as an emotional surrogate. In these cases the unavailable partner is unconscious of their contribution to the very maritime problem about which they complain and think it's their mate's fault. Frequently, they must grieve and let go before they can open to their spouse.

People rarely believe that getting the love that they seek might be a problem. Connie finally overcame her pattern of loving abusers, and found Mark, a kind and gentle man. Being loved proved to be more terrifying to Connie than the familiar abuse. Her entire life and personality had been built around the belief that she was unlovable. She was sure that Mark would leave when he discovered the "truth" about her that she imagined was bad. Mark had his own self-esteem issues, and before Connie, he had always dated overweight women, in whom he ever lost sexual interest. He worried Connie would leave. Sharing their fears, not only helped them to heal their wounds, but moved them closer to a commitment of the heart.

What makes intimate so difficult? It requires vulnerability – risking openness. Everyone's been hurt before, and I mean everyone. From childhood onwards, people get hurt even by well-intentioned parents, by friends, teachers, and lovers, and by losses due to death, illness, rejection, and divorce. Animals, including humans, are programmed to avoid pain. It's hard-wired into your brain in order to survive. It requires awareness, intention, and courage to feel everything that may arise once the heart is open. If it's been wounded before, no one wants to re-open an old wound. Opening your heart to love will open those wounds. But it's also an an opportunity to heal, rather than seal them it over.
