Creating A business enterprise

Should you be looking into setting up a plumbing service company, there’s an awful lot you should consider before you take the plunge. Loads of tiny specifics that you perhaps did not think of, but when you don’t think of some of them you are going to be set for a handful of trouble.

In several ways, beginning a residential plumbing company is no different than starting a coffee shop, interior decorating service, or a fashion company. There are particular elements common to any business venture. This can include specific things like getting insurance.Once you effectively structure yourself, however, you will be ready to hit the ground running.

Should you be starting a small business, be ready for pressure. It’s coming. Be ready for this, and get contingency plans in position to deal with any likely result. If you happen to look at users on Instagram who post images of expensive wrist watches and sports cars and have the label CEO in their account, you might think it’s easy. But it’s not.

Take this business, for example. This guy’s end goal is being the best residential London plumbing contractor . Do you really believe he is going to get there without a handful of hiccups? No way.

The first thing, as a result, should be to examine exactly why you want to start this company in the first place. In the end, in several ways it is easier to just work for someone else. Check out the YouTube video below to find out more.

Setting up a Business Lifestyle

  Should you be thinking about setting up a plumbing service company, there’s quite a lot you have to know before you take the plunge. Loads of tiny details that you maybe did not consider, but when you don’t think of some of them you’ll be set for a boatload of trouble.
 
 You will find that there are many different difficulties associated with setting up a residential plumbing business. Some are common to all businesses, and others are unique to plumbing.
 
 But by using this strategic preparation process, you will have taken care of most of the essential aspects of getting your game plan in the right spot.
 
 Should you be beginning a business, be prepared for tension. It's coming. Be prepared for this, and get contingency strategies in place to deal with any kind of feasible outcome. The true business owners are those who can make it through through the tough instances, not the easy ones. If you aren't able to  hack it whenever things get difficult, go get a job working for someone who can.
 
Any business undergoes this, even these guys
 
 The first step, as a result, is to examine the reasons you want to start this company from the start. A job is a lot less stressful. Check out the YouTube video beneath to find out more.

Downfalls From Becoming Your Own Employer

Should you be looking at setting up a plumbing service business, there’s a lot you should know before you make the leap. A variety of little details you perhaps didn’t think of, however if you don’t think of some of them you’ll be set for some problems.

You will see that there are numerous difficulties included in beginning a plumbing company. Many are found in all businesses, while others are unique to plumbing.

When you effectively structure yourself, however, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

Awful stuff is definitely coming in business. Avoid being naive enough to think it isn’t. The actual testing of a business is how you manage it. If you happen to follow users on social media who put up photos of high-priced designer watches and private jets and have the label executive in their information, you might think it’s easy to do. But it isn’t.

Take this company, for example. This guy’s objective is being the best residential London plumbing company . You think he is likely to get there without getting a few warts? Of course not.

Before you start anything, though, understand why you want to start a business. In the end, in several ways it is easier to just work for someone else. Here’s a great video on the subject.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glace Review


Some guy leaned into to me today at Dean and DeLuca and said, You smell good! You smell real good! I’m wearing Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Grace Perfume and I’m guessing his nose works a lot better than mine does because I swear I can’t smell anything at all. But thanks, I love when someone tells me I smell pretty! I feel all special and stuff now.


Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glace launched on HSN recently and of course, I snatched it up even thought I told myself to wait for a 20% Off coupon that they send out often. Ironically within one day of ordering it, they sent me a coupon.



Head desk.


Repeat.


via GIPHY

Here’s my review on this one!



Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glace comes as a surprise release as Juicy just recently introduced Viva La Juicy Sucre not to mention Majestic Woods & Royal Rose a few short months ago. I just didn’t expect to hear from them until late Fall 2017 but here there introducing Glace.


Glace arrives at an excellent time since this is the lightest version of Viva La Juicy released in a while. It’s available for a limited time so if you love it grab it up before it disappears. As with all Juicy fragrances part of the appeal is the gorgeous packaging. Juicy packages it up in a glittery pink and silver box that gives off Britney Spears Fragrance vibes to me. Juicy goes with the traditional square bottle packaging here in a frosted white iridescent shade with a pink iridescent overlay. The tall crystal stopper is wrapped up in a fluffy feather ribbon and a gold and pink Juicy face plate is prominently placed on the front of the bottle. It’s very foo foo girly packaging that could be considered juvenile but I’m such a girly girl I didn’t mind so much.




The fragrance itself is a lighter version of a combination of the Viva La Juicy and Sucre scent. If you find Juicy fragrances too nauseatingly sweet or to overpowering you might like Glace a little more because it’s much, much lighter and sheerer. The floral notes are dominate here with jasmine playing an important role at first mist with a swirl of candy-ish pear and mandarin. The scent dries down quite quickly and vanilla and sandalwood come into play which add an element of warmth and sultriness to the more playful fruit notes.


It’s not a complex fragrance and it’s not terribly unique. It’s a light, Summer-worthy fragrance that might capture your eye and attention if you’re looking to go lighter with your fragrance in the warmer weather. The throw doesn’t seem to be there for me and the scent seems to fade fast but I misted myself early this AM, headed out, and obviously it was still hanging around after three hours as I was complimented. So, maybe my nose is broke?!


Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glace probably isn’t a must buy by any means. If anything at all you might want to get Sucre before indulging in Glace as that was stronger, sweeter, and much nicer in comparison. However, Glace is an easy pick for those that desire something lighter. It’s a nice companion piece to other sweeter or vanilla based scents in your fragrance collection.


Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glace is available now at ulta.com, hsn.com, and macys.com.

What temperature to serve white wine

White wine needs to be chilled, but are you serving it too cold? See our guide below.

white wine -temperature Make sure you’re serving your wine at the right temperature.

White wine serving temperature guide


The style of your white wine impacts what temperature it should be served at.


You need to consider factors like the weight and body of the wine, and whether it has been oaked.



‘I tend to think of temperature as having an effect similar to the 'sharpen’ feature in photo editing apps,’ said James Fryer,beverage director for London restaurants Clipstone and Portland.


'Colder temperatures can accentuate lines and edges whereas, the warmer a wine becomes, the more those edges can seem to blur and overlap.’


'Acidity and fruit tend to be the two end-points of this equation, with fruit character becoming more obvious with increasing temperature whilst acidity tends to stick out a bit more, as those fruitier tones recede at lower temperatures.’


What temperatures should they be?




At a glance



  • Lighter white wines are served the chilled, between 7-10 C (44- 50 F).

  • White wines with more body, or oak, should be served at a warmer temperature of 10-13 C (50 55 F) just lightly chilled.

  • Sparkling wines are best served well chilled, at 6 10 C (42 50 F)

'Young, crisp and aromatic wines show well at the lower end of the spectrum; cool temperatures emphasise their refreshing qualities and acidity,’ said DWWA judge Matt Walls.


'Mature, complex whites are best served cool rather than cold, their aromas being more open at the warmer end of the scale.’


'I’ll tend to leave Chardonnay and things of its ilk Viognier, Roussane, Marsanne out in the cellar rather than putting them in the fridge,’ said Fryer.


'I do love sparkling wines a bit colder, though not ice cold and, during hotter months or perhaps that should be single month in the case of the UK. I like to switch over to Riesling where a bit more chill can accentuate the grape’s natural acidity.’



'My domestic fridge is set to 4 C and I usually put my whites in for an hour and a half for a light chill, two and a half hours for a full chill,’ said Walls.

Sparkling wines should be served well chilled. Credit: Cath Lowe/Decanter


Can your white wine get too cold?


Yes if it’s served too cold, it can potentially mask some of the flavours.


'As a rule, people tend to over-chill their whites, but at least a wine that’s too cold will gradually warm up in the glass,’ said Walls.



'If wines get too cold, at a certain point a wine will become so angular and sharp-edged that it becomes unpleasant. It’s like you’re left with only the bones of a wine without any of the flesh the fruits, florals, spice that makes it individual and enjoyable,’ said Fryer.


Chilling wine in a hurry?


'If I’m in a hurry, I’ll put them in the freezer for 22 minutes for a light chill, 28 minutes for a full chill just make sure you don’t forget about them!’ said Walls.


'An ice bath is always good (with bottle completely submerged),’ said Fryer.


'But, if all else fails, I’m not adverse to popping an ice-cube or two into the glass either it’s your wine, you bought it, you should be able to do what you want with it right?’

Azores travel guide: Where to go

There’s a new energy in winemaking in the Azores, says Sarah Ahmed, who picks out the best places to stay and eat while visiting…

Azores travel The port of Velas on the Island of Sao Jorge, the Azores.

Azores travel guide




Getting there: SATA airlines serves all nine islands, with regular flights from Lisbon (two hours); easyJet also flies from Lisbon.


Direct flights from London (including Ryanair) and east coast USA take four hours.




Azores: Where to stay


International flights arrive at Ponta Delgada on So Miguel, the largest island. This bustling town has a wide choice of hotels and restaurants and a fantastic food market (cheese shop O Rei dos Queijos is unmissable; look out for So Jorge, a favourite Portuguese cheese).


With its stylish rooftop bar and pool overlooking the harbour, and A Terra’s open kitchen focused on ‘locovore’ dining, cosmopolitan new five-star hotel Azoris an excellent base.

The five star hotel Azor.


But do visit the island’s lush, green landscape with its hot springs and volcanic lagoons (Lagoa das Sete Cidades is especially stunning).


In Furnas Valley, sumptuous four-star Art Deco Terra Nostra Garden Hotel the archipelago’s first offers tranquility and the region’s best wine list, including a strong range of Azorean wines.

Adegas do Pico’s portfolio of restored rustic stone cottages and Casa dos Botes, a very contemporary whale boathouse conversion, also give an authentic slice of Pico’s cultural heritage.

Azores: Where to eat


In mid-June, Anfiteatro on Ponta Delgada harbour is home to 10 Fest 10 days showcasing 10 leading international chefs; it also offers sophisticated tasting menus all year round.


For a taste of the sea, Cais 20in Ponta Delgada and Ancoradouro (+351 292 623 490) in Pico’s lively fishing port Madalena are outstanding.

Bag a table on the terrace overlooking the harbour at Ancoradouro and try Cancela do Porco, the owner’s excellent Verdelho (made by Curral Atlntis). During peak-season, Madalena’s architectural award-winning Cella Bar is the cool (surfers’) place to hang out.

17 Ways to Get More Views, Engagement, and Shares for Your Facebook Videos

This post was originally published in 2015 and has been updated with the latestFacebook video tips and information.


Over 8 billion videos or 100 million hours of videos are watched on Facebook every day.


These stats were reported early last year so imagine how much larger the numbers are today as Facebook continued to grow and double down on videos.


Now seems to be the perfect time to take a closer look at Facebook video and how to use videos to engage more fans on the platform.


With Facebook video being the top priority of marketers in 2017, we’d love to help you get ahead ofthis rising trend. In this post, you’ll learn 17 actionable tipsto increase the views, engagement, shares of your Facebook videos.



Facebook video tips


17 Top Facebook Video Tips forMore Views, Shares, and Engagement


With Facebook constantly evolving and introducing new features, your video marketing strategy has to evolve, too. Check out the below video and latesttips to help you create videos that captivate your audience:




  1. Create square videos

  2. Catch people’s attention within the first 3 seconds

  3. Add captions to your videos

  4. Suggest viewers tap for sound

  5. Focus on one key point

  6. Upload your videos natively (via Buffer!)

  7. Craft a descriptive title

  8. Create a Facebook-specific copy

  9. Give a preview of the video in your copy

  10. Add a call-to-action

  11. Tag other pages

  12. Choose preferred audience for your videos

  13. Use insights tounderstand video performance

  14. Go live

  15. Feature a video on your Page

  16. Boost with Facebook ads

  17. Embed Facebook videos on blog posts


Let’s take a look at each tip in detail.


1. Create square videos


Earlier this year, we spent $1,500 to find out what makes videos successful on social media.


We found that square videos outperformed landscape videos in terms of average engagement, views, and reach, especially on mobile. And we aren’t the only one to see these results.


Mobile vs Desktop Video Engagement


Here’re a couple possible reasons:



Landscape vs Square Video Comparison


With more and more people viewing videos on mobile, it’ll be great to experiment with square videos to see if they improve your video performance. You might even want to consider creating vertical videos since Facebook is now showing larger previews for vertical videos in News Feed on mobile.


We have been using Animoto to create simple, short videos and Adobe Premiere and After Effects for more professionally produced videos.


2. Catch people’s attention within the first 3 seconds


Facebook videos auto-playin order to captivate users’ attention and convince them to watch more.


As such, your Facebook video should have a powerful first few seconds that captivate your audience even without sound.


BuzzFeed has become a master at this.Here’s how they’ve done it:



  • Great thumbnails BuzzFeed uploads custom thumbnails that do a great job at capturing people’s attention while they scroll through their feed.

  • Tease the video with a short post update:Sometimes it’s the title of the video itself (if that is compelling enough). Other times they tease what the video is about.

  • Immediate start:BuzzFeed doesn’t waste time in capturing people’s attention. In general, the first frame is already geared towards piquingsomeone’s interest.


Here’s a recent example which has garnered more than 8.7 million views at the time of writing:



How to uploading a custom thumbnail


When you upload a video, you can select a thumbnail or adda custom thumbnail for your video.


Select thumbnail for Facebook video


If youdidn’t upload a custom thumbnail for your existing Facebook videos, you can select Edit Post from the menu and a similar pop-up will appear.


Edit post to customize thumbnail


3. Add captions to your videos


85% of Facebook videos are watched without sound.


Even though Facebook now auto-plays videos on the mobile News Feed with sound, it’s unclear how many people watch videos with the sound on. Facebook users can disable the auto-play-with-sound feature, and videos will auto-play without sound if the mobile phone is on silent mode.


My hunch is that most Facebook users still watch videos without sound.


If a viewer can’t understand your video withoutthe sound, you would likely lose that viewer and the opportunity to convey your message to her.


To prevent that, you can add captions to your videos through Facebook. When you are uploading your video onto Facebook, there’s an option to upload a SRT file of your captions.You can also add captions to existing Facebook videos by editing the video.


Add captions to Facebook videos


(It seems that Facebook has been rolling out an auto-captioning feature so you might not have to do this manually soon.)


Alternatively, you can add text overlay to your videos using a video editing tool like Animoto. Colorful and to-the-point text overlays can make the video more appealing and engaging.


Here’s a great example by HubSpot:


Text overlay on video


4. Suggest viewerstap for sound


Another neat way to work around the silent auto-played Facebook videos is to suggest viewers tap for sound with a pop-up.


Pop-ups can sometimes be annoying so it has to be designed and timed appropriately to create a non-disruptive effect. 20th Century Fox (which I learned this tip from) showed a great example with their Kingsman trailer video:


Tap for sound example


The style of the pop-up is in line with the Kingsman theme (and similar to the style of the captions). It’s also well-timed as it doesn’t prevent you from seeing any crucial bits of the video (and it doesn’t take up too much space on the screen).


5.Focus on one key point


If you want to make a shareable video, focus on one easy-to-understand point.


This is a tip frompopular YouTube creators, RhettMclaughlin and Link Neal, in a video on creating shareable videos.


Can we summarize what this video is all about in one sentence that is easily understood and also compelling in a way that people will want to share?


The point is if you can’t summarize it in one sentence, then it’s going to take someone longer to explain it when they’re trying to share it.


If your video is easy to understand, viewers would be more likely to share itas it is easy for them to explain what’s great about the video when sharing it.


Rhett and Link try to think from their audience’s point-of-view on why they might share a video even before writing a script for the video. Why might your audience share your videos?


According toJonathan Perelman, former GM of Video & VP of Agency Strategy at BuzzFeed, there are five main reasons why people share videos:



  • To be social

  • To express how they are feeling about a particular topic

  • To show off, or humble-brag

  • To prove they were the first ones to find something

  • To make friends and colleagues laugh


Do your videos help your audience achieve any of these?


6. Upload your videos natively (via Buffer!)


Videos uploaded onto Facebook natively perform way better than links to YouTube or similar video platforms.


(Natively refers tovideos that have been uploaded to a network directly and played straight in a feed, versus those that are uploaded elsewhere and shared as links, e.g. YouTube videos.)


Quintlyanalyzedover 6 million Facebook posts in the period of July to December 2016 and found the following:


The interaction rate for Facebook native videos were on average 109.67% higher than for YouTube videos.



Facebook native videos had on average a 477.76% higher share rate compared to Youtube videos.


With Buffer, you can upload videos directly to your queueand post them natively on Facebook while still being able to take advantage of your optimal Buffer schedule.




7.Craft a descriptive title


Facebook recommends choosing a descriptive title that will make the video easily searchable.


With Facebook seeing more than two billion searches every day, it’ll be worth to optimize your videos for search.


You can add the title when you upload your video onto Facebook.


Add title


8. Create a Facebook-specific copy


If you have a presence on multiple social media platforms, you might sometimes want to share a video to several platforms. A best practice is to tailor your copy for each social media platform as what works best on each platform differs.


Here’re two key characteristics of Facebook and how you can make good use of them


High character limit for posts: You can type up to63,206 characters for a Facebook post (though Facebook will truncate your post at about 400 characters). This gives you the flexibility to experiment with both long and short copy. We noticed that short copy is better for driving clicks while long copy is better for generating engagement.


High character limit for comments: It seems that you can type up for 8,000 characters for a Facebook comment. This makes it great for inviting your audience to share longer-form thoughts about your video.


For example, Airbnb encouraged its audience to share their favorite vacation mom story on their Mother’s Day video. As the character limit for comments is high, Airbnb’s audience could share much more about their stories than, say, on Twitter.


Airbnb video CTA


Here’re five ideas for creating engaging copy for Facebook:



  • Experiment with post length

  • Ask a question

  • Use a list

  • Add a quote from your content

  • Include an emoji or two

Square vs. Landscape Video – $1.5K Worth of Experiments: Here's How They Compare

In an effort to get to the bottom of what makes videos successful on social media, we set out to answer two not-so-simple questions:



  • Where does video perform best?

  • In what format does video perform best?


What we found is that there are so many ways to go about it! Video format, length, content, captions, and graphics (to name a few) all play a big part in the success of your video content.


But one stat really stood out to us: Square video (1:1) takes up 78% more real estate in a person’s mobile newsfeed than does landscape video (16:9).


That’s a lot of space! And with mobile content consumption on a dramatic rise, this felt like something we had to get to the bottom of.


So we teamed up with the video experts at Animoto to test (and test again) the hypothesis that square video would perform better across the board on social media than the traditional landscape video.


The results were fascinating!


We’re excited to dig in and share our research with you along with several actionable takeaways for marketers looking to up their video marketing game in 2017.


Let’s do this!



We’ll be talking a lot about great video marketing tools in this post. Our two must-haves are Animoto for video creation and Buffer for sharing. Feel free to grab a subscription from each before we get started. We’ll be mentioning them a lot below.

What are your top three tips for getting the most out of your stash?

Stay organized! An organized stash means that it's easier to find everything when you want it, and you have a good idea of what you have to begin with. Get rid of products that you don't like or reach for because they just act as clutter. Don't be afraid to mix and match products or layer different finishes or colors to customize a shade!

The Annual Amarone Tastings: Who Was There, Who Was Not, and Why

Tasting the new vintage... and understanding the notable absences.

L'Oreal Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer Giving Your Skin a Naturally Rosy Glow!


L'Oreal Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer ($24.99) currently has my eye as the promise of a naturally rosy glow from my moisturizer. This new new moisturizer was created with mature skin types in mind and contains rosy pigment to instantly give your skin back it's rosy glow. The tinted moisturizer also gently exfoliates dull, drier skin while stimulating surface cell renewal with Imperial Peony Extracts and LHA.


You'll instantly see a rosy glow from the moisturizer but the gentle exfoliating action that moisturizer provides will help to keep that glow.


I'm noticing more and more tinted moisturizers pop up this season. Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Skin Tint is yet another one that's popping up although this one promises coverage not a rose tint.


Does anyone love the idea of this in theory but cringes at the thought of using it? I can't picture myself rubbing a moisturizer with a rose tint ALL over my face. I mean I don't want my entire face to have a pink tinge to it.


Hmmm!


I'm still going to try it!


L'Oreal Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer is available now at walmart.com, Ulta.com, target.com, and amazon.com.

Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip for Spring 2017


Proof positive that Clinique and Bobbi Brown have the same parent company today in the form of the new Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip. Remember yesterday's post about the new Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss? These new Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip Pens should look familiar!


The packaging might look the same but Bobbi's formula is apparently a pigmented liquid lipstick with eight hours of wear and a semi-matte finish. Sephora says they are a squeeze tube but they look like a click pen of sorts to me. I'm wildly curious about them to say the least! Clinique version is way cheaper though at $17 bucks versus Bobbi's at $28 but hey, Clinique's also seems to be sheerer.


What do you think?


I think I might try at least one! There are 16 shades total and some of the reds and nudes are calling my name.


Yes, please.


Available now at Sephora.com.

Yay or Nay: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara


I remember when Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara launched with it's edgy name and promise of ink black lashes that are fuller, longer, and sexier. I love Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes and I consider it my holy grail mascara but I have to admit I'm still searching for that one mascara that will really rock my world. I haven't quite found it yet.


I noticed that Too Faced is starting to repromote Better Than Sex on Instagram. I swear, they spend so much time promoting this mascara it boggles my mind. Almost every season they trying to rev up interest in it.


Needless to say when it first released I felt positive Too Better Than Sex Mascara would be incredible.



It's a nay for me. It's way over marketed in my opinion and the results are mediocre. The formula is a bit messy to work with and clumps my lashes up. Yak!


What was your experience like with Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara?


I know it has a crumb load of fans but I'm simply not one so it's a nay for me.


How about you?


Yay or nay?


Do share!
