Not Everything that Happens in Vegas Should Stay There

Vegas. Oh lord, where do I start and where do I stop. I absolutely love Las Vegas, for about thirty hours. Then I’m done. No matter why I go, whether it’s for gambling with buddies, a bachelor party with former buddies (just kidding!) or to attend a trade show, I’m always more excited to leave than I am to arrive. I guess I’m getting old, or maybe I just don’t love seeing babies getting carted around casinos at two in the morning. Whatever the reason I’m there, the old adage applies. “Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Wait, that’s not true at all; it never applies. I’ve never really supported that sentiment. It just assumes that the homeostasis of everyone is a state of dishonesty and depravity and the only reason we all get along outside of sin city is through a series of illusions, misdirections and lies. I don’t abide that sentiment. Sure, there are some more carnal elements of life that are easier to come by, but just because some people are a little over indulgent, doesn’t mean that everyone who visits is. Not everything that happens in Vegas stays there. In fact, for better or worse, everything that happens in Vegas goes home with you. For me, that’s a good thing.

Just last week, I attended a conference on timeshares in Vegas. I sell timeshares because I’m an avid traveler and it makes me sad to know that some people would love to travel but just don’t have the funds to do so. Timesharing is far and away the best way to see the world on a budget and I can’t recommend it enough. Sorry, I didn’t mean to do a business pitch here, it just comes naturally. Anyhow, we were all set up in an auditorium right off the strip and a number of companies, including mine gave a series of short pitches about our businesses and the services we provide. I made a lot of sales and thank goodness, none of those stay in Vegas. They all came home with me!

The reason I did a lot of business there was because I catered my pitch to the needs of that specific audience and presented my ideas specifically to them. It’s important to know your potential clients, so you can cater to their specific needs and values. While your products and ideas are the lifeblood of my business, my presentation is skeletal system that allows that blood to flow. There are infinite ways to present your business to your clients, but if you don’t do it right the first time, you likely won’t get a second chance.

You’ll find that after just a few minutes, you’ll be completely inspired with brand new concepts you’ll want to run by your staff or your investors.

X Factor wardrobe wars week 1: Nicole Scherzinger just about manages to outshine a glamorous Sharon Osbourne

One of my favourite fashion icons Riri looks flawlessly feminine in her shoot for the April 2013 issue of ELLE UK magazine. The pop star strays from her usual loud style and tones it down for a more subtle, yet absolutely gorgeous look. She also almost hides all her tattoos. Her signature pixie cut is dyed a bold jet black, her caramel skin glows and looks untouchable against the pop of red on her lips.

It’s the beginning of October somehow and I’m writing this blog post from a brand-new laptop. I woke up one morning, intending to print off an essay that was due and maybe write a bit before class… and my trusty old Betsy (yes, I named my Dell Betsy) wouldn’t turn on. I rushed it to the computer doctor, and he told me that there would be no reviving the old girl. So, here I am, with a fancy touch-screen contraption that I’m scared of and slightly excited about and more than a little resentful towards. This computer feels like a… Philip. I don’t know why. Here’s to a fruitful and long relationship, Philip.

It’s part of the Bois de Bologne in Neuilly. By taking the #43 bus from Gare St, you can get there directly. Lazare and then walk tout droit/straight ahead. Do not wander into the boulangerie on the corner for an ice cream as I did. The woman gave me the wrong directions. Once you’ve entered the gardens the Bagatelle is down on your left. Really you can’t miss it though I’ve managed to with all my previous visits to Paris. My big mistake.

Clipped bushes, classic little bobbles… we’d disparagingly call meatballs if they were lined up in front of a burger outlet in North Carolina. Does the fact that they were in a historic monastery garden in Kyoto make them any different? A bobble is a bobble is a bobble, isn’t it? Here of course I could appreciate their being parts of a whole , but still felt each one was an example of something I personally do not care for.

Faster Heart Attack Care Led to Faster Return to Work

We just returned from a little family trip to Washington DC. I learned many things…such as, when the police tell everyone to clear out of the park across from the White House, they don’t answer questions like, “Why? What’s going on? Should we be worried? ” I learned that even though you KNOW you’ll be walking miles (and miles), you’ll still wear your wedges to The Capitol and resort to wearing 17 Band-Aids like a toddler.

Vienna – Something For Everyone!

Whenplanning a trip abroad, there are a variety of factors that we consider, depending on who we are travelling with, how much of a budget we have and what we want out of a trip. Admittedly, it is difficult trying to please everyone (and most of the time you won’t) but it is worth asking for recommendations, because word of mouth, blog reviews, sometimes Trip Advisor and articles are the very best way to find and research your perfect holiday. – See more at: http: //scarlettlondon.com/tag/something-for-everyone-in-vienna/#sthash.GTTpkbiQ.dpuf
