October 11, 2016Support Team
I had a recent outpatient procedure; that is a word that I have come to really dislike. I've also become very familiar with outpatient procedure facilities. These are places that allow you to get a minor to moderate surgical procedure, and go home shortly after. Your support team is so important the who work for the facility and those who will be driving you home. The whole ordeal is usually packaged up into one day that requires a lot of take home care. It's more cost effective for 'them' and supposedly us. I am not a fan of posting medical procedures on any social media. Seeing someone and their IV pole can be disconcerting. Words of encouragement and photos that don't make you cringe are highly recommended. After observing the staff and medical teams, I noticed a good 80 percent of the employees are women. These are women in the demo we are seeking to please. My procedure alone involved one doctor, a man, four operating room nurses, women, one female intake nurse, one female post-op nurse, and another female receptionist. It seemed to me that, since this field is so saturated with the demo we seek, you may want to send them a shout out, or bring a couple of extra t-shirts the next time you accompany anyone in need of a procedure.

Daughter number two has been preparing for the SAT test this summer, and I know have a love-hate relationship with the calculator option on her cell phone. I have learned that just because someone gets a good grade in a math class does not guarantee the critical ...

August 30, 2016Billboards
On our summer road trip, my daughter sitting in the back seat blurted out, "If I ran the world, all of these billboards we are passing would have cats on them." Most billboards advertise hotels, food, area attractions, and gas. When I ask my car full of kids which sign ...

Too bad there isn't a subscription service for travel, I mean a service that will provide everything down to anything you could forget. They could book the transportation, accommodations, activities, handle the packing the different snacks everyone prefers and don't ...

Eyelash extensions are all the rage and super helpful especially in the summer months when being around water is the thing. I can totally tell when my girlfriends upload new Facebook photos after they had their lashes done. This is a costly beauty endeavor many are ...

Capitalizing on the fact that women are busy is not my recommendation. It's pretty much a given that schedules are crunched I'm finding more women are happier when they can brag about the balance they have found and the time that is spent in enjoying life instead or ...

I practiced great self control inside a Bed, Bath & Beyond store today. They send me large sized coupons almost daily, the more I collect the more I want to go and use them. There could be a case study here for direct mail response. Anyway my self-control was at an all ...
